Are Stay At Home Moms Better

(category: Womens-Issues, Word count: 869)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Can we really have it all... a career, the good life and parenthood? Can parents afford to raise a child on one income? How can new parents decide whether to work or stay home with the kids.

Kristie Tamsevicius, author of I Love My Life: A Mom's Guide to Working from Home says that the answer has never been clearer. Since September 11, 2001, people are going back to basics. Fueled by frustration with their current work environments, people long to spend more time at home with their families. This desire has led millions of parents to say "goodbye" to corporate America and "hello" to a work at home career.

One of the toughest decisions you face is whether you will stay at home with the children or go back to work. Financially, it can be difficult to make the switch to living on one income. Additionally, women often wonder if they are sacrificing their career by choosing to stay at home.

New parents are overwhelmed with the onslaught of child relating expenses including baby gear, clothing, diapers, and medical bills. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, raising a child from birth to age 2 costs $13,400 a year. So how can families cut back and survive on less income and endure these added costs?

The common myth is that if both parents work, there will be more income.

But this is not always the case. If you add up the numbers, oftentimes you are not getting ahead financially by working and paying daycare.

When you subtract childcare costs, auto expenses, dry cleaning and other work related expenses many find they are not making that much by working outside the home.

The truth is that we trap ourselves into thinking that we need two incomes to survive. Whether it's keeping up with the Jones' or buying high tech toys, it seems when you make more, you spend more. When our income increases, instead of banking the difference, we raise our standard of living.

The pressures of dual working parents can weigh on a family. Sometimes working mothers feel guilty for wanting to work away from home. Then there is the issue of balance. Juggling the pressures of work and home can be tough. Trying to make sure meals are made, the house is clean, and the bills get paid between running kids to soccer practice is trying.

We have to ask what we are teaching our kids with our busy lifestyles.

Are we teaching our kids that this pace of life is normal and desirable?

Will daycare teach your kids the values you would?

No one will love and teach your kids the way you do. Daycare will attend to the physical needs of your child, but are they teaching your kids the values and lessons you would? In situations such as the bullying kid at daycare, or the fight over toys is the daycare provider shaping your child's character in the same way you would?

Children reap vast benefits when moms stay at home. Mothers can provide care with love. They are there to discipline and teach proper behaviors. While spending quality time, mothers can develop a lasting bond with their children. This bond creates a stronger sense of security and well being within the child.

Kids enjoy other benefits too. Moms can provide a more varied diet and better nutrition. And children receive more mental stimulation when one on one sharing time with mom.

How can moms learn to live on less and stay at home with the kids?

Shopping smart saves money. Thrifty minded moms cut coupons, look for sales, and buy in bulk to cut costs. Many families are learning that a simple life beats the pressures of trying to keep up. By setting a lower standard of living, you can learn to enjoy the simple things. You teach your children that wealth lies not in material possessions, but in the joy of living.

Working from home can help parents to have the best of both worlds:

precious family time and extra income.

Statistics show that today's working people are eager to say "goodbye" to corporate life and say "hello" to the joys of working from home.

Working from home offers a variety of benefits including being your own boss, flexibility, the ultimate office space, no commute, increased control, time with family, and the sheer joy of designing your own business and life.

Entrepreneurship offers thrills, stimulation, challenge, and a new powerful choice-driven reality. It provides an option for single parents and families struggling with family and career concerns. It's allowing dads to quit the 9-to-5 grind and stay at home with the kids.

It's providing a new chance for people who have been laid off or kicked out of the corporate system. It's providing a new income-earning opportunity for people who can't live on their retirement funds alone.

At-home careers offer an income for people with disabilities who have trouble finding jobs in the traditional workplace.

So realize that as a parent, now you don't have to decide to work or stay at home, you can have both: a career and time with your kids.

Is Your Pregnancy Exercise Safe For Baby

(category: Womens-Issues, Word count: 883)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

ere is no doubt thatpregnancy exerciseis both excellent and necessary for you to do now that your looking out for two (unless your doctor has told you otherwise!).

Exercise will help you reduce your pregnancy related symptoms, manage your weight gain and speed up your post-partum recovery time. However, you MUST make sure that whatever you choose to do is SAFE for both you and your baby.

I exercised during my pregnancy, but I only chose to do exercises that I enjoyed doing - like walking and swimming. I particularly liked swimming because it was non-weight bearing and it cooled me off (which was a huge help for my pregnancy-related overheating!).

For those of you who are looking for more than just swimming or walking, I've picked 5 questions from my subscribers that look at various pregnancy exercises and ask the question, "Is this exercise SAFE?".

(Please note: all of the following opinions assume that the subscriber has been given the OK to exercise by her family practitioner.)

Subscriber Question #1:

"As a fitness instructor, how long I can continue doing high impact movements?"

My Opinion:

I'm assuming that because you're a fitness instructor you're in good shape, which would make it okay to continue exercising during your pregnancy at a moderate intensity level - around 70-75% of your maximum heart rate (if you're not in good shape, aim for around 60-65%!).

However, I'm not a big fan of high impact movements (i.e. jumping, step class etc.) because they can be jarring on your joints (which are already carrying a big enough load). Also, your center of gravity changes, which means you're going to be much more likely to fall or injure yourself.

So, I recommend sticking to low-impact exercises, like swimming. You'll find it better on your body - especially when your tummy starts getting bigger!

Subscriber Question # 2:

"Now that I'm pregnant, can I run up and down my stairs for exercise?"

My Opinion:

Good question! Although most of us have stairs in our house or office, I wouldn't recommend it for a workout. Running up and down stairs umpteen times may seem like an easy pregnancy exercise to do, but it's really quite strenuous. You have to be in very good shape - believe me, I used to get my elite athletes to do this!

Choosing stairs instead of an elevator, however, is not a bad idea if you're just looking for a little activity here and there (just be close to the railing in case you lose your balance!).

For a more suitable workout, put on your running shoes and go for a brisk walk.

Subscriber Question #3:

"Can I do abdominal work to keep control over my love handles (fat on the sides of my tummy)?"

My Opinion:

I know you're not going to like my answer, but now's NOT the time to worry about your love handles. Although certain experts say that abdominal work is safe during pregnancy, I wouldn't recommend it. Rather concentrate on core strengthening exercises (including training your transverse abdominal muscles - the deep ones!) and wait until after your baby is born to work on toning your tummy!

Now that doesn't mean that you should let go of yourself, sit on the couch and eat the house - no way! It means take care of yourself, keep active, eat healthy foods - and you'll have LESS of a job taking it off after you deliver.

Subscriber Question #4:

"I'm very worried about putting on excess weight, can I still do my 1-hour a day workout consisting of Body Combat, Body Attack, dancing and running?"

My Opinion:

The general rule regarding exercise during pregnancy is that you CAN continue to do what you were doing pre-pregnancy as long as you lower your intensity to a moderate level.

I'm not quite sure what Body Combat and Body Attack classes are, but if they're high impact (jumping) and aggressive (hitting), I'd recommend you trying something else. Exercises like the elliptical trainer, low impact aerobics, or deep water running (a very tough exercise when you've got the right form!) are better choices.

Pregnancy is not the time to try and improve your fitness level - rather it's the time to maintain your existing level as best you can (remember, you're now working for two!).

Subscriber Question #5:

"Is it possible to tone my lower body while I'm pregnant?"

My Opinion:

YES! Some great exercises that you can do now to tone your lower body are lunges, inner thigh squeezes, leg extensions, and bum raises off the ball.

Now you're not going to be doing intense legwork, so you probably won't see drastic results. But every little bit helps and it WILL make you feel a whole lot better about the way you look (trust me!).

I would however be cautious about other pregnancy exercises - for example, avoid anything that puts pressure on your back, like the leg press machine!

Ovarian Cancer

(category: Womens-Issues, Word count: 496)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

The most deadly cancers to which most women are prey is the ovarian cancer. This type of cancer is however very rare but its overall chances of development are 1 out of every 100 as compared to the breast cancer that holds a ratio of 1 out of 9. The group that is most prone to this cancer is the age group of 50 and 60's.

Symptoms of ovarian cancer

Since ovarian cancer shows any symptoms in the initial stage it is the most deadly cancer found. The problem is enhanced because of the fact that ovaries are located deep within the abdomen and there is no way out to self examine on a regular basis as it much possible in the case of breasts. The disease also produce symptoms that are often confusing and could also signal to other conditions.

Frequent symptoms of ovarian cancer are vague stomach discomfort, an expanded abdomen or even abnormal bleeding. Many women face these types of symptoms either throughout their lives and they make the mistake of not informing to their physicians. And by the time they feel it necessary to inform their physician, the tumor grows to an extent that it has spread too far to stop.

Even when your physician finds an ovarian mass, it does not always mean that there is a risk of cancer. The higher majority of ovarian masses detected in pre menopausal patients are benign and disappear as time passes by.

Greater risk

With most of the cancers, doctors don't know exactly what causes the growth of cancerous ovarian cells. Current theory states that a number of factors of which some are controllable and some are not influence the development of ovarian cancer. One proposal also suggests that there is a link in between the number of times a women ovulates during her life and her risk of developing ovarian cancer.

The factors that contribute to the risk of ovarian cancer includes ovulation for more than 40 years, women who have never being pregnant or have the first pregnancy after the age of 30 or late menopause.

Other factor that is unrelated to ovulation but ought to increase the risk of ovarian cancer includes:

1. A family history of ovarian or uterine cancer

2. Having breast cancer or benign breast cancer

3. Having colon or rectal cancer or polyps

Stages of ovarian cancer

If your physician makes a diagnosis of ovarian cancer, he or she will make categorize it as one of the 4 stages of the disease whereby stage 1 is the earliest stage in which only the ovaries are involved. Stage 2 involves spread of the cancer from the ovary to other parts of the pelvis. The cases that are diagnosed after stage 3 are the least. The most advanced stage of ovarian cancer is the stage 4 that has least chances of survival.

Breast Self Massage Is Simple

(category: Womens-Issues, Word count: 1364)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Breast self-massage is simple. Breast self-massage is pleasurable. Breast self-massage helps prevent cancer as well as detect it. Breast self-massage helps keep breast skin supple. Breast self-massage is a way to be intimate with your breasts. Breast self-massage is a piece of women's wisdom. Breast self-massage is safe. Breast self-massage is free.

Many of the women I've talked with say they don't do breast self-exams, though most think they ought to. No one wants to look for (or, heaven forbid, find!) cancer. We've been trained to avoid danger, and looking for cancer sounds like looking for trouble. Our bodies are influenced by what we think, so how can it be safe to spend time every month doing a breast self-exam, worrying if we're about to find a lump? But we feel guilty when we don't.

And what are we supposed to feel when we touch our breasts anyway? They feel full of lumps! Most of us aren't sure how to touch or examine our breasts or what we'd do if we did feel something truly suspicious. Our guilt and confusion make it all even more complex.

Breast self-massage offers a way to let go of this tension and get in touch with yourself. This soothing, nurturing self-massage is a pleasurable and relaxing way to get to know your breasts. It avoids the worry of checking for cancer, while providing an excellent early-warning system should cancer arise. Regular, loving touching of our breasts allows us to recognize normal breast changes without fear, and gives us time to respond thoughtfully to abnormal changes. Breast self-massage is also a quiet, focused time that allows the Wise Healer Within (see page 83 of the book) to alert us to any changes that require our attention.

Infused (not essential) herbal oils are an important element of breast self-massage. When herbs are infused into oil, active plant components are liberated and can be massaged into breast tissue - where they help reverse abnormal cellular changes such as hyperplasia, atypia, precancers, and in situ cancers. It's fast and fun to make your own infused oils (see page 297), or you can buy them (see page 75). But if you don't have any, plain olive oil works fine.

If you already know breast self-exam techniques, let them inform your fingertips during your breast self-massage. If this is all new to you, take a few months to learn about your breasts with self-massage before doing breast self-exam. They complement each other: Let the pleasure of the massage infuse the exam, and let the effectiveness of the exam inform the massage.


Now. Anytime. All the time. Sure, your breasts are less lumpy at some times of the month. But you can do breast self-massage whenever you want, even if you're lumpy. If the best time for you to pay attention to yourself is when you bleed, because that's when you take time to be alone, then that's the time to do breast self-massage. You could do it every week and get to know how your breasts change with your cycle and with the moon, but most likely you'll do it every month. I like to do my breast self-massage when the moon is new.


First, make or buy some infused herbal oils or ointments. You'll want several, as each offers unique benefits.

Then, create a comfortable, private place where you can lean back: in a warm bath or propped up with cushions in bed. (Protect linens and clothing from oil stains.) Arrange yourself there, bare-breasted, with your infused herbal oils close at hand.

Let your eyelids fall. Put your hands over your heart and hum. Cup your breasts with your hands and hum. Imagine or visualize energy streaming out of your nipples. Allow your breasts and heart to open and flow as you hum.

Open your eyes. Transfer some herbal oil or ointment to your palms. Rub your hands together briskly until they feel warm. Place them on either side of one breast and hum.

Cup your fingers alongside or under your breast, thumbs touching and up as high on the chest as possible. (If your breasts are very large, rest the right breast in the right palm and massage with the left thumb, starting in the armpit and moving toward the center of the chest.) Press in and slide your thumbs down toward the nipple, pressing the breast tissue into your fingers and palms. Stretch your thumbs up toward the collarbone again, but slightly farther apart, press in and slide down.

Continue until your thumbs are as far apart as possible (the middle of your chest and your armpit). Repeat, gradually increasing pressure, but only as long as it feels good. Caution: There is a slight possibility of spreading breast cancer through vigorous massage, rough handling, or very deep pressure.

Transfer more oil or ointment to your palms and rub your hands together. Cup your breast as before, thumbs up and touching. Hum. Repeat the previous pattern, but break up the stroke: Instead of a long, slow, smooth stroke, use your thumbs to make a lot of overlapping short strokes, gradually moving down the chest. Try various degrees of pressure.

Raise the arm of the breast you're massaging, and put your hand behind you or on your head. If your breast leans to the outside, prop a pillow under that shoulder or lean over. Cover your breast with your free hand and hum.

Dip your fingers into your oil or ointment and, starting in your armpit, press the fingerpads of your first two or three fingers down with enough pressure to hold the skin, and make a small circle. Don't let your fingers slide over the skin. Keep making little circles (with enough pressure to feel the underlying structures) as you trace an imaginary spiral from your armpit around and around your breast, growing ever smaller until you reach your nipple. (If it is difficult or impossible for you to use your fingerpads, use your palm.) Cover your breast with your hand and hum.

Curl your fingers into your armpit and gently grasp the ridge of lymph-rich tissues and muscles that extend from the shoulder down into the breast. Move up and down this ridge several times, using small squeezes or long glides or little spirals or your own strokes.

As you touch your breasts, imagine or visualize your fingertips emitting healing pink sparkles that embrace and nourish your breasts. Let your fingerpads sink deeply into your breasts. Allow any held distress to be soothed by the balm of the infused herbal oil/ointment. Let overactive energy be calmed by the rhythm of your fingers circling, circling, spiraling, spiraling.

Apply more oil or ointment with your fingerpads, making large gliding circles from midchest to under your breast, up toward the armpit and over and around, again and again, with a steady rhythm.

When you're done massaging your breast, close your eyes and relax. Hum. Call to your Wise Healer Within as you hum.

Massage your other breast, starting from the beginning: Put your hands over your heart. Hum. Cup your breasts. Hum. (Is there a difference between the breast that has already been massaged and the one that hasn't yet?) Rub your oily hands briskly together; hold either side of your breast and hum. Extend your thumbs and massage as before, including all of the previous strokes and ending with your eyes closed, relaxing deeply and allowing yourself to contact and listen to your Wise Healer Within.


After your breast self-massage, take a moment to record your experience. This will help you learn more quickly what's normal for you. You can draw a map of your breasts to help you remember what you've felt. Try using colors. Write down any messages offered to you by your breasts or your Wise Healer Within. If you like, make up a little song to hum during your massage. The keynote in breast self-massage is pleasure.

Discover The Latest Hairstyles Before The Celebrities

(category: Womens-Issues, Word count: 517)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Modern, Stylish Cuts for Women and Men

Like clothes and cars, hairstyles are constantly changing. A cut that was once the rage begins to look dated as a fresh, new hairstyle takes its place. Here are some of the most modern, latest hairstyles being spotted today.

Latest Hairstyles for Women

Women's hairstyles are seeing a return to soft, feminine waves. Stiff, over-styled hair is out of fashion, and flowing, natural hair is currently in style. Stick straight hair has lost popularity in favor of the softer latest hairstyles. Gone are the days of the zigzag part. Today's hair parts are simple, straight and right down the middle.

Long Hair

Long hair is one of the latest hairstyles for women. While shorter hair was the fashion for many years, celebrities have begun to wear hair longer and longer and women everywhere have taken note and are following the trend.

Long, smooth layers are also gaining popularity, in response to the trend for longer, softer hair. The cuts featuring short, choppy hair are no longer in style.

Ponytails are being seen everywhere this season, but not the teeny-bopper style ponytails perched high on the head. The latest hairstyles feature hair swept back into low ponytails.


Full hair with lots of volume is another one of the latest hairstyle trends for women. This look works for any type of hair: straight, curly, long or short.

Japanese Hair Straightening

For women who love the straight look, Japanese Hair Straightening is a chemical process that can turn the curliest locks into straight, silken tresses. This process has been gaining a good deal of popularity in recent years. Also known as Thermal Reconditioning, this process uses heat to straighten curly hair. Japanese Hair Straightening is currently quite costly, and while hair that has been straightened should stay straight, the process must be repeated as new, curly hair grows out.


The latest hairstyles feature lustrous, dark colored hair. Highlights are still seen but have lost quite a bit of popularity, and the trend is moving towards hair dyed one color throughout.

Latest Hairstyles for Men

Just as women's styles have shifted, men's styles are also changing. Perhaps the most notable trend in the latest hairstyles is longer hair for men.

Longer Hair

While short styles have ruled for a while, longer hair is coming back for men. Men's long styles should keep a slim silhouette, not full and bushy. In today's men's long hairstyles, the hair skims the shoulders and is worn back, not falling onto the face.

Longer Layers on Top

One of the latest hairstyles for men's short hair is to cut the hair with longer layers on top and shorter layers at the sides and back of the head.


Just as retro clothing has gained popularity, seventies hairstyles are also making a comeback, with straight hair parted down the middle now being seen on men.

Like women's trends in haircolor, the latest hairstyles for men include dying the hair darker, with fewer highlights being seen.

Is It Me Or Is It Hot In Here Easing Menopause With Oriental Medicine

(category: Womens-Issues, Word count: 465)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

All women eventually experience the ending of their reproductive years as their menstrual cycle ceases. The hormonal changes that occur at this time can cause many different types of discomfort when our bodies are not in balance. Some problems women deal with at this time include hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, vaginal dryness, headaches, and stress. There has been much discussion lately about the use of soy products to ease the symptoms related to menopause. Soy contains phytoestrogens that are help to alleviate symptoms related to the drop in estrogen that a woman's body experiences at this time.

In addition to supplementation with soy, there are many ways to balance the body and reduce discomfort during this natural change. In Chinese Medicine, the symptoms associated with menopause are considered to be a result of a decline in the yin energy of the body. Yin is the feminine, nourishing, fluidic, structural energy of the body. In this way, it is closely related to the feminine hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. The bone loss that some women experience at this time would also be related to yin deficiency and to deficiency of the Kidney in Chinese Medicine. The Kidney in Chinese Medicine relates to the health of the bones.

While many women seek out hormone supplementation, use of acupuncture and herbs along with lifestyle and dietary changes can alleviate menopausal symptoms naturally. One herbal remedy that Chinese Medicine practitioners often use for symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes, and vaginal dryness is called "Liu Wei Di Huang Wan", or "Six Flavor Tea", which contains rehmannia, cornus, Chinese wild yam, moutan bark, poria, and alisma. These herbs are not commonly known here in the West, but this formula's function is to moisten the body and nourish yin. These herbs may also have phytoestrogenic properties. The herb, vitex agnus castus, or chasteberry can also be useful for reducing discomfort. Acupuncture is also used to treat the symptoms associated with menopause. Two commonly used points are Spleen 6, which is three finger lengths above the inside of the ankle, and Kidney 6, which is directly below the bump on the interior side of the ankle.

In addition to acupuncture and herbs, certain nutritional and lifestyle changes are very useful. Certain healthy oils, such as evening primrose oil and flaxseed oil, which contain essential fatty acids can help to alleviate the symptoms of menopause. It is also crucial to eat healthy food and reduce stress during this time in a woman's life, and if possible, in the years leading up to this change. All of these natural remedies may help ease the symptoms of menopause naturally without the side effects of hormone supplementation.
