Do You Know About Poo Spray?


How many times have you used a public restroom and the odor was horrific? Well if people would carry and use Poo Spray (toilet spray) that might help a situation like that. Read more at anointedtoday.blogspot.com

Poo Pourri


1. History

According to Susan Batiz the found of 17 million bottles of Poo-pourri spray, this oil-based spray is sprayed on the surface of the toilet water before you poop. She further adds that it encapsulates the poop, by sort of wrapping the odor. Who would have thought?

A. A few tips for you

2. What to do?

I recall going to a public restroom and the odor in there almost knocked me out. It was then and there I vowed to do something. I found poop spray. It has a very pleasant scent and comes in different fragrances. I found the fragrance Coastal Wood. It smells very good. I purchased mine at bed, bath and beyond for about $4.99.

3. How to Use

You basically spray over the toilet water before sitting on the toilet. I have found it to be very helpful for those that leave the restroom stinky, to spray after them, especially when you have entered a stall that is stinking before you sit down. Now sometimes the scent from others is so strong it scents the entire restroom. It is at that time especially important to spray as soon as you enter the rest room

Did You Know Music Has Power?

Music is something that we sometimes take for granted. Sometimes we may not even be aware that we hear music. Music is good for us and is a vital part of our well-being.


Benefits of Music


1.  Health

I have been in retail stores, medical offices and even beauty salons where music was playing quietly. Apparently managers there are aware of the importance of music.

After reviewing 400 studies by Levitin and colleagues, it was revealed that patients showed less anxiety listening to music during surgery. Also, other evidence showed that music lead to higher levels of bacteria-fighting immune cells. The great confirmation for me was when Dr. Mercola mentioned that music played in the neonatal unit improved the health of premature babies that had respiratory distress or sepsis.



2. Personal Experience 

I recall when my twin grand-babies were born; they were in the hospital for about a week. During that time I recall visiting them daily, talking and singing to them as well. Also, before the babies were born, my daughter would mention that whenever I was around her her babies would start kicking and moving when they heard my voice. So I decided to make a tape that she could play for them while they were in the womb.



 NOTE:

Music can evoke a strong emotional response either positively or negatively. Have you ever listened to an old song that you used to listen to when you were in a past relationship? Have you noticed the memories that start to flood back through your mind? Those memories may have been positive or negative memories.


3. Scripture

The devil was created as Lucifer. He was perfect in every way. He was a perfect example of having the ability to play beautiful music, even though he eventually was cast down and is now known as (“the prince of the air”) Ephesians 2:2.  

4.  The Heart

Did you know that music protects the heart? According to everydayhealth.com   A study done of 10 healthy adults in their mid-thirties showed a 26% improved blood flow when they listened to joyful music.  The good thing about music therapy is that children as well as adults can benefit from it. In addition, children with special needs, adults with Alzheimer’s, or those with substance abuse problems benefit from music therapy.

5. Jingles

Did you know that at least 9 commercials may be shown during commercial breaks? This has increased from the traditional 1 commercial in between programs. Now you usually will hear music and/or a song to accompany it. Now I have noticed I may walk around humming one of those jingles in my mind or aloud. Once you hear it, it seems to resonated with you throughout the day. Children tend to do the same thing. I like a variety of music. I discovered that I do like listening to classical music.  Gospel and Classical music are my favorites.   What types of music do you like to listen to?

4 New Trends at Pinterest 2018

Pinterest is constantly evolving into the largest visual board that there is. 2018 has some very pleasant surprises this year. If you are a visual learner, you will love Pinterest.

Pinterest


I recall when a friend suggested I try Pinterest. She sent me an invite. I did not have a clue as to what Pinterest was. When I started with Pinterest I did not have any ideas as to what I was doing. I asked my friend, “What do I do?” She said start pinning about things that you like.

So I slowly started. I discovered it was a learning experience everyday. I did realize that I was a visual and a hands on person. So the visual content at Pinterest was overwhelming. I really loved it. I also learned there were people on Pinterest from all over the country. I have learned so much from others and made friends along the way. I really love the group boards which really help to grow your Pinterest audience. There are million of users on Pinterest. Pinterest is so exciting Some of the new trends are listed below.

1. Business Webinars

Pinterest has just launched Business Webinars in March of 2018. It is so easy to sign up for the webinars by email. You will never miss the webinars, because they will be sure to notify you of upcoming ones. Pinterest will cover various subjects such as millennial buying, foods, strategies, tips to make your pins stand out, and much more.



2. Parents using Pinterest

This particular webinar will discuss how parents use Pinterest. Did you that 40% of United States parents use Pinterest? Yes this is according to Pinterest.

3. Pinterest House

Last month in March, 2018  Pinterest held a gathering for digital marketers in Texas. They covered topics such as beauty, fitness, hair, makeup, and much more.

If you did not make the event, the following link below  shows several videos that were taken during the event. I discovered that Home Depp even uses Pinterest. I know that most husbands love home depo for their home projects. I have viewed the videos. They are quite encouraging.

What Is Love?

Do You live your live to the fullest? Are you to busy correcting and enforcing rules on your children that you do not take the time to enjoy them? Do you even take the time to enjoy your life? Why not start enjoying life?


Love

I found several great table mats for my table. I thought about the words that were on them, “live, love, and laugh.” I believe the greatest of these is “Love.”

1. Love


A. Chemistry

Have you heard your child say? “He’s so fine.” “ I feel so good when I am with him.” “I get goose bumps just being near him.” Is it love or lust? Lust stirs up feelings and emotions. When dating ,these emotions may get stirred up. Sometime your child might say,“I am so attracted to John.” “The chemistry is definitely there.” Think about it. Is it love or lust? It might just be better to date in groups when your child is of dating age.

B. Feelings

Feelings and emotions change. You cannot rely on them. When young people are dating, it is important to date in groups, rather than alone It gives the young person a chance to see how their date adapts to certain situations. It allows others in the group to observe the character of the date. Also, others in the group may see and observe things that the young person might not see.

NOTE: Do you know of anyone that is looking for love in all the wrong places?

C. My Recollection

I recall a friend that acknowledged he came from a loving and supportive family, but he chose to go down the path of using drugs. Now when he became drug free he was compelled to show his friends there was a better way of life because so many had followed him down that narrow path. He also shared with me it was not enough to tell people, but to show them by his actions. Also, I know that my friend had accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. God is waiting on you. Hebrew 13:5 He will never leave you, nor forsake you. The prescription for love is in the Bible.

GOD    is    LOVE


1 Corinthians 13: 13 tells about love and now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Gives a great description of what love is and what love is not. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. I have not arrived and perfected all that love is, but I am striving towards that.


I believe the greatest love is found in Johns 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. This is one of the greatest gifts.

2. Live

Are you enjoying your life? Maybe it is not exactly what you expected it to be, but are you controlling the things that you have control over such as what you eat or how you balance your time? You know everyone has been given 24 hours in a day. What are you doing with yours? It is your choice.

Did you know that tea is actually good for you?

Read more at:


3. Laugh

Did you know that laughing is one of the best medicines that there is? Proverbs 17:22.   A Cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Laughing is free and it does not cost any money.   Besides the fact that this is mentioned in the Bible, when you laugh, it just gives you a good feeling. Have you ever observed how carefree children are
about laughing and playing? They will laugh at almost anything. Children are bombarded in our society by so many negatives, they need to be able to laugh about some things. I have observed how some children are able to make others laugh. Some like telling jokes and some just are naturally funny.  According to WebMd, studies have shown that humor may raise the level of infection-fighting antibodies in the body and boost the levels of the immune cells. Sometimes just laughing with your children about something you all find amusing. Possibly a funny commercialpicture, or even a joke, may be something you and your children find to laugh about throughout your day.

Regardless to how bad you may feel about your circumstances in life, look around you and find something to laugh about today, even if you have to watch a comedy or  movie.  Have a good laugh. I know that I had a good laugh today.

How to Be Aware of New Stranger Danger

As Technology increases so does the stranger danger. Tricky people are discovering new techniques to lure your children away from you.


TRICKY PERSON

Does your child know what at stranger is? Does your child know that a predator may not always be a stranger, but instead someone close to the family? A few of the latest stranger dangers are listed below:

1. Drones

There has been discussion of drones being used for pizza or retail products delivery by merchants, but now there is the possibility that drones are being used by possible predators lurking after your children.  Possibly you have seen drones or your children may have asked for a drone for Christmas or their birthday. Did you know that a drone has been seen near the Windemere's playground in Ohio according to foxnews. The problem with this is that it occurred not during the school time and it could lure children away from the school ground. Drones having talking capability and also picture taking capabilities. This can be an invasion of privacy.



2. Tricky People

Possibly you have had the conversation with your child about stranger danger. Maybe it is time to have the new conversation about tricky people. Today.com emphasizes that if a safe adult needs helps they will generally ask another safe adult as oppose to asking a child.


3. Empower Your Child

Anxioustoddlers.com talks about a few tips that could possibly save your child's life. I know that I have seen children in the store maybe having tantrums and the parent might be dragging them out of the store, but sometimes it might not be the parent. I like the tip they discuss about having the child scream “Who are you, you are not my mom, or help. They even suggest if in a store for your child to knock over items and cause a commotion.




4. Vocal

Let your children know that this is the time to get loud and scream “HELP” OR “FIRE,” if they are in trouble.

I recall the movie "Silence of the Lamb.” The man asked the lady to help him fit a couch into the van and she ended up being kidnapped by him. Children need to know if they are asked to help find a lost dog, that this could be a technique being used to kidnapped them. I also, remember watching a program where the woman said her child was outside playing and she briefly went into the house to get something she forgot. When she came back out, her child was gone, because she had been kidnapped just within a matter of seconds.

5. Are there registered sex offenders living near you?

This is just good information to know and be aware of. Sometimes you may even discover that there are multiple offenders in one specific area.

Check the FBI Register listed below to find out if sex offenders are living in your area, daycare, or school area:

Do You Know the Importance of Sleep?

 Does a teenager need as much sleep as a baby? Do your sleep needs change as you age? Why do some people need lots of sleep while others need very little?
Sleep Deprivation

Sleep needs can change and can vary with different age groups. I asked myself, “How much sleep do I need?” I recall as a teenager loving to sleep late when I was off from school. Now I automatically wake in the morning without an alarm clock and seemingly only needing 5 to 6 hours of sleep per night. During the summer months as soon as it turns light outside and I hear birds chirping, I will awake.
1. Why You Need Sleep
According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute sleep is involved in healing and repairing of your heart and blood vessels. They further add that sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, and more.
2. Sleep Needs Vary
Did you know that the average adult needs for sleep ranges from 7.5 to 8 hours of sleep per night? That is according WebMD. They further talk about the need for sleep not only varies from individual to individual, but that genetics and heredity play an important role.
3.. Assess Your Sleep Needs
The National Sleep Foundation suggests that you might want to ask yourself a few questions to assess your individual sleep needs. You might ask questions such as are you productive on seven hours of sleep or do you depend on caffeine to get you through the day? When I recall when my children were babies, I seemingly could sleep all the time. They further added that a newborn to 3 months may sleep 14-17 hours per night, whereas school age children may sleep 9-11 hours.
4. Sleep Deprivation 
It is important to find out how much sleep you need in order to not experience sleep deprivation. Signs of sleep deprivation may include fatigue, irritability, reduced immunity, and difficulty making decisions according to helpguide.org


* * *NOTE* * *So remember you are the one to determine how much sleep you may need. Once you know that make it a priority to get enough sleep.


5. Seasons
Why You Need More sleep in the winter
Have you ever considered that you need more sleep in the winter than in the summer? There is a reason for this. There are winter conditions that contribute to your need for more sleep.
According to Huffington's Post suggest that the hormone Melatonin is linked to lightness and darkness. So less sunlight during the winter may cause more Melatonin, therefore causing you to be tired and sleepy. They further stress it is important to get a good night's sleep.



* * *Note: * * *
I know in the winter, I almost want to hibernate like a bear. I want to stay in my nice warm house and only go out in the weather when I need to. Now that is not the case in the summer.
During the summer I can find many things that I want to do outside. I guess that would explain why in the summertime we have all this burst of energy. I do believe the Vitamin D from the sun has a lot to do with that too.

6. Shorter Days During Winter
Bodyecology.com states that winter is the best time for focus on your sleep, because shorter days provide us with extra hours of darkness for good sleep. They also state it helps your adrenals, which work hard repairing your body when you sleep. I can attest to how sleepy I feel during the winter, but then during the summer I have bursts of energy nearly all of the time.
7. Sleep Deprivation


* * *Could you possibly have sleep deprivation? * **


According to healthline.com some of the symptoms of sleep deprivation are hungriness all the time, weight gain, emotions are all over the place, you get sick often, and much more. Does any of this sound familiar to you?
Also Cnn.com discusses how car crashes increase during tiredness and lack of sleep. Your emotions may be very high when you experience lack of sleep according to Cnn.com. In addition, they add that anger and frustrations can be blown out of proportion. Also, I know that lack of sleep can be detrimental. I recall my now deceased husband coming home from work after working second shift. He fell asleep at the wheel and totaled out our car, but I was thankful he came out without a scratch. I also have discovered I should not try to make important decisions at this time, because I might just not be thinking clearly. Usually after I get enough sleep my perspective and other things seem to look a lot better than before.
8. What Can You Do?
According to Fit&fabliving you can fight off winter fatigue by getting as much safe sun exposure as possible. You can do this by opening drapes and blinds, get time outdoors in the sunlight, keep a regular sleep schedule, and find ways to relax. These are just a few of their suggestions. I do believe in getting more sunlight, I can just feel the difference in my body in the summer with much sunlight as oppose to the winter, when there is less. So the next time you feel sleepy during the winter time remember some of the reasons why and know you can do something about it. I also have observed when I get my proper sleep I have less sickness such as colds and coughs. I never realized how important sleep is to my health.

* * NOTE: * *
If you have not been getting enough sleep, be intentional to start getting that sleep that is so vital for you. Don't wait until you have a disaster like a heart attack, stroke, accident, or even worse.
