Can You Reduce Your Risk of Breast Cancer

Can You Reduce Your Risk of Breast Cancer

by: Kim Beardsmore

We hear it all the time…lose weight for your health. Few people however, realize the extent to which this is critical to their physical well-being and ultimately their life expectancy.
In January 2003, the Journal of the American Medical Association featured a study finding that obesity appears to lessen life expectancy, especially among young adults. The researchers compared Body-Mass Index (BMI) to longevity and found a correlation between premature death and higher BMIs. For example, a 20-year-old white male, 5’10” weighing 288 pounds with a BMI of greater than 40 was estimated to lose 13 years of his life as a result of obesity.Jamie McManus, M.D., F.A.A.F.P...

Will the Angels Abandon Us?

Will the Angels Abandon Us?

by: Skye Thomas

If we don’t behave according to a specific church’s doctrine, will our guardian angels turn their backs on us? If we are struggling with our overall belief in God or we’re questioning the validity of the holy books, will the angels abandon us? What if we believe in God and in the Bible, but we just feel like screwing off for awhile? Will they desert us? Do we have to be good and pure and perfect in order for angels to look after us?
I can only speak from my own experience. I was not raised in a church because my father is an atheist and my stepmother just didn’t care either way. I have always had a few paranormal gifts that would come and go without warning...

Does the Free Basic Membership find you a date?

Does the Free Basic Membership find you a date?

by: Tyler Casselman

When it comes to online dating many people think that by signing up for just a free membership that they will get good results. The fact is this doesn’t usually work. Unless you write a really outstanding profile your response will be poor.
The problem is that if no one signs up for a paying membership to these services then you wont get a response. Some of the big networks like Match.com have hundreds of thousands of paying members. The problem is they also have millions of actual profiles online many of witch are people signed up for free.
Now what I’m getting to is that the large services get flooded with tons of profiles, but no one is talking to each other if no one is paying.
I’m not saying that free profiles are wor...

Single in a Couples’ World

Single in a Couples’ World

by: Thelma Mariano

Advertising for St. Valentine’s Day seemed more relentless than ever this year. Everywhere I turned, I saw candy hearts or jewelry glistening in store displays. Radio announcers drummed the message home through constant promotions of dinner for two. There was no one “special” in my life. I had been working hard on my home-based business, running two personal development programs and then writing well into the night, week after week, to expand my website content. I wanted – and felt I deserved –a little appreciation.
So for the first time I did the unthinkable. At a flower shop, I ordered an exquisite arrangement of orchids and lilies for myself. I also purchased a box of chocolates to share with friends.
The flowers still brighten my ...

by: Anne Cavicchi

Some people think that the word sexy and pregnancy do not belong together. I have to disagree. In fact, I have heard many men say that a woman is her sexiest and most beautiful when she is pregnant!
So, how do you go about feeling sexy when your belly is expanding and your body is going through so many changes? So many women tell me they feel unattractive when they are pregnant, but they don’t have to!
The good news is that the days of the maternity tent dress are over! Today’s maternity wear is hip, trendy and yes, even sexy! http://maternitycorner.com/miva/merchant...

Can’t Take a Compliment?

Can’t Take a Compliment?

by: Helen Ksypka

“Putting ourselves down,

is an insult to our worth.”

–Helen Ksypka
Have you ever noticed how women dodge compliments as if they’re bullets?
You look terrific.

Oh, please; I’m a mess.
That’s a beautiful blouse.

This old thing?
You did a super job.

Not really.
What a great dinner.

It was nothing.
It was nothing. That one really gets me. Why do you think we women are taken for granted and treated as if we can and should do it all? When we prepare a meal, a party, or holiday, believe me it’s a big, fat something. If someone compliments us, we need to acknowledge that we knocked ourselves out, and say: thanks for noticing.
If you think I’m blowing this out of proportion, let me tell you how resisting compliments hurt one woman’s...

Superstition – A World of Make Believe?

Superstition – A World of Make Believe?

by: Sharon Jacobsen

Superstitions are part of our heritage, transporting us to a distant past that links with the roots of our culture. The ancient lores of our forefathers are still very much alive, many having remained unchanged for hundreds, perhaps even thousands of years.
Rational thought and the advance of science together cast doubt on the real dangers involved yet many of us still feel we ought to be careful.
There are hundreds of common daily activities which are linked to superstition, each culture having its variations. Even those of you who say “I’m not superstitious!” have probably at some point tried to avoid walking under a ladder, stepping on cracks, knocked on wood, blessed a person sneezing, or crossed your fingers. Just in case.
