Benefits Of Drinking Coffee Extend Lifespan, Nov 16, 2015 04:00 PM By Samantha Olson Americans love coffee, and each sip of it may be lowering risk of early death for the 54 percent of adults who drink it every day. In a new study, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health studied the benefits of both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee, and found both conferred a lower risk of dying from the leading causes of death in the United States.  "This study provides further evidence that moderate consumption of coffee may confer health benefits in terms of reducing premature death due to several diseases," the study’s senior author Frank Hu, a nutrition and epidemiology professor at Harvard, said in a press release. "These data support the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Report that concluded that 'moderate coffee consumption can be incorporated into a healthy dietary pattern.'"

Massage Therapists Are Not Answering The Phone! What's Going On???

Image
Have you ever tried calling all over town to book a massage, and no one is answering their phones? Is it impossible to get a call back? You'd be tempted to believe that all massage therapists are complete flakes, right? Well, maybe, but the truth may be a bit more complex. First, you have to understand the nature of the business you are attempting to contact. Most people who do not get regular massage, may become very frustrated at the seeming lack of professionalism. Massage Therapists work in several different establishments, and where they are located may dictate how responsive they are to your calls. 1. Salon / Day Spa:  Spas usually have multiple professionals like hairdressers, nail techs, and massage therapists that work in the location. Due to this, they will usually have a receptionist to answer the telephone. Massage Therapists may or may not be on staff, so you may not be able to secure an immediate appointment, because therapists tend to work by appointment only. 2. Mas

By Mark Volkmann (Originally posted on MassageBook) Getting a massage can be a great experience! It is important to know what will take place and how it will happen. Read below to learn what happens before a massage, during and after the massage. You will get a chance to learn more about the full process and how enjoyable it can be. So grab a drink, and let’s get started! Before the Appointment When scheduling your massage appointment it can be tempting to place it right after another activity, but this will make you feel rushed. When you are in a rush, it will take much longer to relax and be receptive to the massage session. You will want to schedule your time so that you can arrive in a relaxed state, and not be in a hurry. You will also not want to eat right before your massage, so that your body is not processing food during the session. Also make sure that you are drinking plenty of fluids. The beginning of the appointment will involve a health and history screening. You’ll be as

Searching for the Answer

Raised Christian, I believed that God had laid my life before me, and when unexpected or painful things occurred, it was because it was His plan. As I grew, I discovered my role in shaping my destiny. I had come to realize that my personal dreams, wishes, desires and beliefs shape the reality that I inhabit.

Claim Your Birthright, My Daughter

The path to hell is paved with good intentions. Over the past few months, I have thought about this often. My daughter is flirting with adulthood. She is in that in-between phase, where she is not quite a woman, but long past being a girl. I find myself desperately trying to pour my words of wisdom into her, and simultaneously knowing that she is rolling her eyes at all of it. Such is our lot as humankind. We are surrounded by the wisdom of our elders, yet we must experience our mistakes for ourselves.

Pondering Captivity

Freedigitalphotos.netPhoto by Vichaya Kiatying-Angsulee. The Cage No matter how gilded the cage, It’s still naught but a cage; And I, how could I willingly submit to captivity? I refuse to be your magnificent beast Hidden away in your den. Does a lion not lose its eminence When captured from its pride? And is a little band of gold Supposed to buy my soul? If you try to force my love, I will disappear, And you will be left to wonder, Was she ever really here? 10/10/95 I know I am a 42 year old woman. I know that I am white. I know that I have a college education. I know that I am a business owner. I am a mother of two grown children. Beyond that, I am lost. It is fascinating to me that in the span of a very few months, my life has been radically transformed, and faster than I ever could have imagined. I think about this often on my weekly drives from Fort Myers to Key Largo and back.
