Addictions and Bad Habits: Effective Ways To End Them For Good

There are all kinds of different addictions and bad habits. But with all that variation, there are still a consistently small number of ways to deal with them. And the more you understand these methods, the more you can use them to your positive advantage if you ever come across a situation that needs to be resolved.

Five instances of habit and addition removal to consider might be the use of medicine like methadone, habit replacement therapy, shock therapy, the use of social and environmental help, and then just generally working on internal and externally secure reasoning.


Methadone is a synthetic opioid used to treat drug addiction. It’s scientifically and exactly created and distributed in order to help addicts lessen their need and desire for certain types of drugs. Using methadone is a proven way to make this happen, as long as everything is done in small, graduated steps. And therein lies the key to this successful method – small, workable steps. Many other doctor-prescribed drugs can do the same thing in the same way, as long as you talk to a medical professional about it.

Habit Replacement

Another way to end addiction and bad habits for good is by really digging into understanding what habits are in the first place. Find legitimate medical and psychological sources of information, and then see if you can hijack your own personal processes. This isn’t going to be easy – in fact, it may be one of the hardest things you ever do. But if you have a plan, with concrete steps, then you’ll have a much better fighting chance than you might give yourself otherwise.

Shock Therapy

Though many people disagree with it on a moral level, many people have found that going through shock therapy has helped with their addictions, especially when it comes to things like alcohol. Yes, it’s an outdated and potentially dangerous technique, but done correctly, it has a certain type of success rate for a certain type of person. Choose your options wisely, knowing what they entail.

Social and Environmental Help

If an addict or a person with bad habits is given both support from social circles and is given an environment free from the habit or substance, there’s a much greater chance to succeed in breaking the cycle as well. Again, knowledge is power, and people with experience in these matters should be sought out when making decisions.

Secure Reasoning

Ultimately, it’s going to be logic that beats out addictions and bad habits. So, the more you practice secure and logical reasoning, the sooner you can work through all of the different aspects of your issues. It does take time to really unbox feelings and emotions with regard to this method though, so there are no shortcuts to take.

Tips for Keeping Your Bedroom Clean and Healthy

Your bedroom is one of the places in which you are most prone. It is where your body spends time healing and recovering from the day as you sleep. And, it’s the place where intimate relationships go on.

These are part of the reasons why you want to keep your bedroom a clean and healthy place. It can help you stay clean and healthy, and help you sleep more soundly at night. So what should you be doing to keep your bedroom worthy of your health?

Get a New Mattress

Start off with considering how old your mattress is, and what you’ve been doing on it. Unless you’ve had your mattress covered with plastic there may be some scary things that have seeped within, and even shampooing it or spraying it with Febreeze isn’t going to be enough. Also, if your mattress is feeling a little broken down, simply flipping it isn’t going to help.

When it comes to mattress shopping, you have plenty of options, and you can even buy a mattress online. However, if your online mattress purchase is simply to save some money, take a trip to a mattress store and try out the mattresses you are considering before you purchase. You want to make sure you get the right firmness and feel so you can have a restful and comfortable night’s sleep.

Keep Your Sheets Clean

Not only do you want a clean and mildew free mattress, but you also want to be cleaning your sheets on a regular basis. You’ll find that it is best recommended you wash them once a week. However, depending on the season, and what you’re doing in your bed, you may want to wash them more often or less often.

Hot summer days can make you sweat more in bed, which means your sheets will get dirtier quicker. However, in the winter you may be able to get away with washing them a little less. If someone has an accident in your bed you may want to change sheets immediately.

Dealing With Bed Bugs

One of the most annoying things revolving around beds are bed bug infestations. While they are mostly uncommon in the general home, if you stayed at a hotel or motel recently you may have brought some home with you in your luggage. Once bed bugs are in your home, your nightmare has begun.

If you have discovered these little apple seed sized bugs in your bedroom you need to get rid of them post haste. That means getting some bed bug spray, pulling all clothing and sheets that have come into contact with them, and maybe even disposing of your mattress. These bugs feed off human blood, and one sign you have them may be bites or blood streaks on your sheets. Clean sheets and clothing in hot water and dry on high, and if you have to dispose of your mattress, slash it, wrap it in plastic and put a sign on it that says bed bugs.

3 Ways To Help Prepare Your Kids For Shots or Vaccinations

Shots and vaccinations are given to children to help protect them from many formerly fatal illnesses and diseases. While many parents understand the importance of getting vaccinations and other shots for the health and welfare of their children, your little ones likely don’t understand why they need to get sometimes painful shots when they visit the doctor. This can make these experiences very hard to cope with, both for your child and for you as the parent. So when you look at your child’s electronic medical record and see that they’re due for some booster shots, try the following tips to help make this process easier on everyone involved.

Help With Their Fears or Anxieties

If your child is old enough to remember getting shots previously, they may be feeling some fears and anxieties associated with these procedures. However, Dina Roth Port, a contributor to, shares that there are some techniques you can employ to help ease your child’s fear of needles and shots. Some of these strategies include telling them the truth about getting shots, not focusing on the possibility of needing shots too much leading up to your doctor appointment, and averting their eyes from the sight of the needle. These three things can all help to take some of the anxiety about getting shots away so they don’t get too worked up about it beforehand.

Provide Distractions To Ease Pain

When the time comes to give the shots, one of the best things you can do for your scared child is to distract them from watching or paying attention to the shot. Ashlee Davis, a contributor to, recommends for you to find ways to distract your child so they can have their mind taken off the shot when it’s being administered. Some ways she suggests doing this are to blow bubbles, have them cough as the shot is going in, give them a sucker, or let them watch a video. Anything that takes their attention away from the nurse and gives them a small reprieve will make the process of getting the shot a lot easier to handle.

Addressing the Aftermath

Once the pain of the shot is felt, it can be a challenge to get your child calm and relaxed once more. For little babies, the CDC suggests swaddling, skin-to-skin contact or breastfeeding to help ease the pain of the shot. Older children can be helped by reminding them to breathe and offering support if they cry.

Not only can the immediate moments after the shot is given be hard, but some children have other reactions to shots, like fever or pain at the site of the injection. You can help your child feel better from these situations by offering appropriate medication, applying cool compresses, and pushing lots of fluids.

Although getting shots isn’t always a pleasant experience, it’s best for your child’s health to be protected from all possible illnesses. Use the tips mentioned above to make your child’s next doctor appointment a gentler experience for everyone.

Natural Ways to Care for Your Face and Skin from Your Own Kitchen

It can be scary to go shopping for makeup and skincare products these days, especially if you are trying to be more health and environmentally conscience. The ingredients in many of these products can be scary for people that care, plus trying to find items that aren’t tested on animals. In the long run you may even end up paying more for better products. It seems like the healthier you try to be, the more money you have to spend.

You can save yourself some money on skincare items, and even some makeup stuff, by using items you may already have in your kitchen. You can even fight acne naturally, but if it’s really bad and persistent, you should visit your dermatologist, as it could be an allergy or something worse.

Acne Care

The best thing to have on hand in your home for fighting acne naturally is some tea tree oil. This stuff is great, and it can dry out pimples and help keep them from coming back. You can mix a drop or two into any of your moisturizers or face masks to get the full effect and benefits.

Dealing With Dry Skin

Honey is something that most people already have in their homes, and it is an extremely healing natural food. Honey never spoils, which is pretty cool, and it is great for moisturizing dry skin. You don’t have to worry about bad ingredients or sensitive skin with this excellent natural product.

Treating Oily Skin

One of the best things to use for treating oily skin is nature’s natural astringent, in the form of witch hazel. You can usually find a bottle of this in the same area you find things like rubbing alcohol and peroxide. Just dab some on a cotton ball and rub it around your face anytime oil is getting to you.

Fighting Itchy Skin

Oatmeal should be your go to for itchy skin. It can naturally relieve itching, from dryness or allergies. Use it in the bath tub for your whole body, or create a facial mask with oatmeal and honey to make your face feel fresh, clean, and soft.

Destroying Age Spots

If you have age spots, blemishes, or you’re fighting discoloration on your skin, lemon juice can be your hero. Not only is it a great astringent, and antimicrobial, it can also help bleach out and even your skin tone, and it isn’t harsh like many things you’d buy in the beauty department.


You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on skin care items to have healthy and beautiful skin. You can simply use some normal kitchen products to make your skin the soft supple body cover you dream of.

5 Things Not To Say to an Insurance Company after a Car Accident

If you have been in an auto accident, you need to make sure that you say and do the right thing afterwards. Saying the wrong thing can not only jeopardize your claim, but it might also allow a claim to be brought against you! Here are five things that you should avoid saying after an accident.

“I believe,” or “I guess…”

Do not guess anything relating to your case. Insurance companies can take this information and use it to limit their payout. They can also use sentences like ‘I guess’ to say that you have agreed with their suggestions about the case, even if you don’t really feel that way.

“It might have,” “I shouldn’t have.” “Guilty” or “I’m sorry about”

These sentences all imply fault or suggest that you did something wrong. Do not try to come up with an explanation for the incident; leave this to the professionals instead. If you say anything that suggests that you may have been at fault, then you might find that the insurance company refuses to pay you.

“I’m uninjured,” or “I’m fine.”

Although you may not feel any pain at that very moment or see any visible injuries at the time of the accident, this does not mean that you are fine. Some injuries take a while to present themselves, so you might start to feel the effects of your crash a few weeks later!

“I’m willing to accept your offer.”

An insurance company is likely to make you a low-ball offer in the first instance, because it is not good business sense for them to make high pay outs. If you accept their first offer, you will not be able to go back and ask for more.

“I do not have an attorney.”

If you admit that you do not have an attorney, the insurance companies will see you as a soft touch. They are likely to try to offer you a low settlement and take advantage of you in other ways. If you have been involved in an accident and you want to make a claim, then get an attorney.
