Give A Compliment

Men and women need compliments to boost their confidence and increase their sense of self-worth. Of course you don’t think your partner looks fat in that dress, but you wish she wouldn’t ask you that question every time you’re about to go out. The best way to reassure her and dissuade her from these persistent anxieties is simply to give her compliments throughout the week without being prompted.

Tell her she looks beautiful before she leaves for work in the morning, or compliment a new hairstyle or outfit. Be sincere. False compliments are easy to spot. So find something you genuinely admire about your partner’s appearance and tell her—if it’s the way her boobs look in that top, go ahead and say so. It’s a romantic gesture that will give her a boost for the rest of the day. Obviously women are not the only ones who enjoy this form of flattery so pay him compliments, too. Whether it’s the way he looks in his new jeans or his skill cooking steaks, he’ll like to know that you’ve noticed. Until next time…..

Stress Relievers

Sex can be a very effective stress reliever. Orgasm itself has many benefits. The sedative and relaxing effects of oxytocin and other endorphins released during orgasm may explain why people find it easy to fall asleep after intercourse. But sex doesn’t have to lead to orgasm in order to release stress: simply being intimate with your partner is sometimes all it takes to soothe and relax you. 

A chaotic home that’s crowded with possessions could be adding to your stress. Introduce calm by de-cluttering, especially in the bedroom. Your bedroom should be a peaceful haven for sleep, sex, and intimacy not a storeroom for piles of clothes, books, or old sports memorabilia. Clear out unnecessary clutter, move your laptop or television to another room, and bring in a few luxurious accents, such as scented candles, plush pillows, soft sheets,and dimmers.

Make time for exercise. Physical activity can increase the production of your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.

Take your allotted vacation time. Make sure that you take all the accumulated days you are owed. Until next time……..

Remarkable Oils For The Hair

 

 

 

 

Egg whites help your hair by giving it a punch of protein. There are many variations of this at-home treatment but here’s a good general recipe to follow: 

Step 1 

Use a whisk or a mixer to beat egg whites until they are white and foamy, about two minutes. 

Step 2 

Fold in plain yogurt (using plain real yogurt with no flavoring or extras added is better), one spoonful at a time, mixing gently until the ingredients are completely incorporated and form a thick, creamy paste. (Mayo can work as a substitute or combined) 

In this step you can add any essential oils (jojoba, moroccan, palm, castor, sweet almond all work well)you like or other hair-friendly ingredients. 

Cucumber: Cucumber contains ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and caffeic acid, fiber, along with minerals like silica, potassium and magnesium. Silica is renowned to be good for the hair. 

Olive Oil: great for conditioning and shine. Honey can also be combined with Olive Oil on hair to make the results that much more effective. 

Avocado : Avocado contains mono-saturated fats, which not only if ingested helps to burn trans-fats it can help give your hair strength and sheen 

Pure Coconut Oil: A really good one! Coconut oil contains many good ingredients for your hair: 
– One of the most responsible reasons behind hair fall and hair loss is microbial action on the scalp and hair roots. So, to protect hair against them, what we need is an antimicrobial agent. Lauric Acid present in Coconut Oil is one of them. It is basically a triglyceride which yields a monoglyceride called Monolaurin when acted upon by a species of bacteria which breaks the glycerol bonds. This monolaurin has excellent antimicrobial properties. 

– Capric Acid is yet another triglyceride present in Coconut oil, which, like Lauric Acid, yields another monoglyceride called Monocaprin due to bacterial action, having antimicrobial properties similar to that of monolaurin. 

-Vitamin-E. Almost every aptly educated person knows the importance of vitamin-E for skin and hair. It keeps scalp and skin healthy and hair rejuvenated. 

-Coconut Oil has high moisture retaining capacity, since it is not broken down easily nor evaporated, being very stable. It does not let moisture escape thus keeping hair moistened and soft. This prevents breakage of hair. Coconut Oil is a far better conditioner for hair than any synthetic one available in the market. 
-he various fatty acids present in Coconut Oil serve as very good anti dandruff agents and are way better than any anti dandruff shampoo. A regular application can help you get rid of dandruffs for ever. 

Step 3 

Use your fingers to scoop up the mixture and apply it to your hair. Massage your scalp, taking care to thoroughly coat all your hair with the mask and cover in plastic wrap/bag. Let the mixture sit on your hair for 15 minutes.

Selflessness Is A Conscious Effort!!

Thinking of someone else might not come naturally at first. But the more often you can put “we” before “me”, the easier it will become. Thoughtfulness is about giving more than you take, and keeping your lover at the forefront of your mind you will start to think automatically of his or her needs and feelings first. This mindful generosity fosters mutual appreciation, respect, and love-creating  the perfect environment for romance and intimacy to flourish.

Make a commitment to doing something thoughtful for your partner a few times a week. That doesn’t mean bringing home chocolates and roses(Although it doesn’t hurt). It simply involves doing something selfless or sweet. Whether it’s making the bed or sending him or her the perfect I love you email for no reason in the middle of the day. Just taking five minutes out your day to do something nice for your partner can improve the climate of your love.

Even when you have everything else on your mind-feeding the children, bills to pay, a job to do– make thoughtfulness toward your lover a priority each and every day. It will create positive changes in your relationship and beyond! Until next time……..

Fight To Love

This is much healthier for your relationship than fighting to win. When couples fight to win, each partner wants satisfaction of being right. But here is the tea:  no matter how you feel, you are always right in feeling that way. There is no wrong or right emotion. Once couples do away with the idea that their feelings aren’t valid unless they win, they can discuss the issue at hand. Don’t waste time placing blame or trying to figure out whose feelings are valid. 

Fights are a healthy part of any relationship, whether you disagree about spending habits or how often you have sex, it’s important to be able to see your partner’s point of view, as well as express your particular needs.

Arguments can often benefit from some space and rest. Sometimes a good night’s sleep can give both of you the patience to better communicate about an issue rather than staying up for hours hashing it out. Even if it means taking 10 minutes to leave the room and cool down. Time apart gives you time to reflect and re-evaluate the situation. Forcing a resolution or continuing an argument until tempers are out of control is never a good idea. AND TAKING YOUR ARGUMENT INTO THE BEDROOM IS NOT SMART EITHER! Your bedroom should be a place of sanctuary, passion, and romance for both of you. Save your arguments for elsewhere, and keep the oiled wrestling and play fighting for the bedroom. Until next time……….

Advice Teusday/ Forgive N Forget

Honesty and trust require forgiveness. Your partner needs to feel that he or she will not be judged or criticized simply for being honest, or admonished for admitting mistakes. We all have flaws, so try not to expect perfection from your partner.
It’s important that you avoid overreacting to minor transgressions. When you attack your partner for making mistakes, you give him or her the message that anything less than perfection is unacceptable to you. This is an impossible ideal for your partner to attain. You don’t have to forgive automatically, but try to make light of small misdemeanors. Focus on your partner’s good points, rather than his or her shortcomings for the good of your relationship. Until next time……..

Reconnect With Your Lover

Vacations are vital for helping us to unwind and recharge our batteries, but most couples use up their vacation days on trips that simply aren’t relaxing. Taking the children to the beach or to visit their grandparents is fun, but it is hardly a sensual, romantic break. Not to mention that, in between packing everyone’s swimsuits, finding lost bottles, and refereeing the children’s fights in the backseat, you barely have a moments peace. The same is true for traveling with in-laws, who are likely to exhaust not only your energy, but also your reserves of patience and diplomacy.
Couples trips should be a must in every relationship. Time alone with your partner somewhere different and romantic will help you to slip out of your usual roles and routines. When you strip away the to-do lists and the stress, you will finally be able to simply be with your lover. Not only will this give you an opportunity to reconnect with your mate on an emotional level, but it will provide a chance to reconnect on a physical level as well. They don’t call it vacation sex for nothing!!!! Until next time………

Boost Your Low Libido ;-)

One of the main reasons for a low libido is that sex becomes too routine or chore like. If you want your sex life to be fun and spicy, you have to put in the work to make it that way! Bring sex into the equation as often as possible, even if you don’t really feel in the mood at first. It’s surprising how quickly your body warms up once you get started, and the more often you and your partner have sex, the more you will crave it. Take each other by surprise by making advances when your lover least expects it.
You don’t have to go for full intercourse every time just enjoy exploring each other’s bodies and making sexual contact. </em>

Words for today……keep it sexy!!!!!!

Take care of your appearance don’t let standards slide simply because you’re in a long-term relationship and you will automatically feel sexier. Brush your hair and wash your face, even for a weekend lounging on the couch. Maintaining an air of sexiness when you live together can be challenging, but to create chemistry you need to treat your partner like a lover not a roommate.
Wear attractive underwear, and keep your skin moisturizer, your nails clean and trimmed, and your hair healthy and well groomed. Eat healthy and exercise to keep your body in shape(working out together is quite sexy and invigorating). Make the best of your appearance and looking after yourself will help to boost your self esteem and make you feel sexier. Until next time……..
