5 Ways Love Makes You Smarter

Marry someone similar to you, if a bit smarter
With your spouse in the house, you have a built-in brain-booster sitting right across the breakfast table. Get the biggest cranial lift from your relationship with these five tactics.

A Seattle Longitudinal Study looked at 169 couples in 7-year intervals between 1956 and 1984 and found that the most stable relationships were those in which people were similar in intelligence, flexibility of attitudes, social responsibility, and education levels. Researchers also found that after 14 years together, spouses with the better grasp of verbal meanings and word fluency had pulled the lower-functioning spouses up to their level.

Hold hands whenever possible
In addition to creating feelings of warmth and closeness, holding hands can help inoculate you from stress. One study using brain scans found that when married women were told they were about to receive an electric shock, just holding their husbands' hands minimized their brains' response to the threat. Women in the closest relationships experienced the greatest decrease in stress-related brain activity.

Kiss at least once a day
This intimate touch triggers the release of the bonding hormone oxytocin and lowers levels of the stress hormone cortisol — but that's not all. Researchers say that when we kiss, we activate nearly half of the cranial nerves that affect cerebral function. All of the sensory information of a kiss — the smell and warmth of your partner's skin, the taste and feel of soft lips — shoots into your brain, delighting your neurons and forging new connections.

Put pictures of your honey on your desk
Brain scans show that looking at a photo of your beloved, especially in the early stages of your relationship, activates a part of the brain associated with pleasure and reward as well as focused attention and motivation. This same area is triggered when a cocaine addict gets a fix -- so you could literally get a healthy 'high' from looking at a picture of your new love. When you're in the throes of new love, your prefrontal cortex also gets into the action, anticipating more time together and planning future events.

Just be together
One study found that average blood pressure was lower when a person spent time with his or her spouse than when they spent time alone or with other people. Even if you don't talk, just spend time in the same room, reading, watching TV, surfing the web, or doing crossword puzzles.

Sciatica Relief

Many people suffer from lower back pain, especially in the area of the sacrum causing the common complaint of sciatica. The symptoms of this condition can be a cramping sensation of the thigh or shooting pains from the buttocks spreading down the legs. Sometimes, there can be tingling, or a pins/needles sensation in the legs and thighs as well as some complaints of deep and sometimes severe pain starting low on one side of the back. 

One of the most common causes of sciatica is when the nerve is being compressed by the periformis muscle and can be as simple as making sure that you are not sitting on a wallet or other bulges in the back pocket of your trousers. The periformis muscle can also be easily compromised by a fall or other trauma to the hips and buttocks area, causing the muscles to be hypertonic and thereby compressing the nerves.
Compresses with essential oils over the inflames and painful areas would certainly be a part of your treatment strategy. Cold compresses can be very helpful when the area feels warm to the touch. Hot compresses are very soothing for painful areas, but should be alternated with the cold.

Here are just a few of my favorite essential oils to use when plagued with sciatica pain.

German Chamomile has mild analgesic, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Geranium is great for all types of neuralgia problems.
Marjoram is a wonderful for relaxing tight, muscles.
Rosemary has amazing anti-inflammatory properties and is antispasmodic.
Black Pepper helps to tone the muscles and reduce swelling to the nerve pathways.
Peppermint is good for cooling inflamed areas and is a great analgesic.

Cracked and Dry
Article from our Alternative Health Resource BlogSpot

Cracked lips can reveal a vitamin deficiency, such as too little B2 Vitamins, especially B-complex vitamins and beta-carotene as well as the mineral zinc are essential for your skin. They are considered very important to both cell metabolism and tissue structure; this is because they guarantee the skin's ability to regenerate and protect itself from infection. The vitamin biotin plays a significant role in cell growth and the body's ability to utilize other B-complex vitamins. Biotin is found in nuts, yeast, legumes and mushrooms.
The fat content in olive oil and coca butter is very soothing but they are also high in B-vitamins which help to protect the skin.

Self Awareness in 2 easy steps
Meditation - Awareness - De-Stressing
Awareness
Step 1: Before you actually sit down to meditate, you must first figure out who you are. In a notebook or private journal, list your likes and dislikes. Avoid making a list of material things, such as types of cars or styles of clothing; instead, make a list that contains information about what makes you happy or unhappy (for example, Likes: being with my family, creative projects; Dislikes: working late, cold weather grocery shopping). The purpose here is truthfully evaluate yourself — to find out who you are, and more importantly who you are not. Once your list is complete, compare your likes and dislikes (who you are) to your personal and professional realities (what you do). Then ask yourself: do a majority of the things that you like take place within your job and home life? If so, good. If not, take note and gradually start doing more of those things that you like, and minimize and eventually stop doing those things that you don't like. Easier said than done? Certainly. But try it! Create methods that gradually move actions or activities that you like into your life, and those that you don't like, gradually start moving them out, or at least find ways to minimize them. Little by little, the stress will dissipate.
The second self-study exercise can be compared to one of those home makeover shows. You can't create a new room if you don't first organize the clutter and then throw out the non-essentials.
Acceptance and Release
Step 2: Create a list of your worries and stressors (for example, Worries and Stressors: deadlines at work, others opinions and expectations of me, wanting to spend more time with family). The purpose of this exercise is to truthfully evaluate what concerns can be dumped from your "worry wagon." After you have created your list, separate the stressors that are past worries — things that happened in the past that you can no longer do anything about. Then, separate from the list the stressors and worries about the future — the things to come of which you have very little or no control. Next, tally up what's left. The remainder of the list should be made up of stressors and worries that are constantly present in your mind — things that never seem to go away. Since you have consciously made yourself aware of your stress inventory, you must realistically let go of the stressors of the past and future. Be honest with yourself and recognize that they are not in your hands, so you have to mentally throw them away — you must learn to let them go. Now, take a good look at the list of stressors and worries that are left. You need to learn to accept them for what they are — the personalities of the people in your life, the deadlines — they are all simply must-have items. You can't control them, but, unlike the past and future worries, they are real. Accept them as the here and now, and deal with them individually as they come in and out of your life. By taking these steps you are starting down a pathway that allows you to be in control of you.
Congratulations! You have just completed a course in self-study. The way to continue to de-stress, to maintain your new awareness and to keep the worries in check is to practice disciplines that allow you to continue to discover, evaluate and improve your new self-awareness. Meditation is one method of practicing this self-maintenance.
