Simplicity is beauty. I always go with that line of thought because sticking with it means I’ll never have to waste so much of my time facing the mirror and fixing myself up more than the ordinary. I have come to realize that being simple doesn’t necessarily mean you have to neglect the necessity of making yourself look beautiful and pleasant. I’ve started to look into beauty blogs and also beauty magazines to find some things and tips to make myself pleasant to look at and rather attractive.
I have learned that every beautiful woman I see behind those pretty pictures on the internet and magazines almost always start their routines with a clean face. Just like painting from a beautiful canvass you have to start with a clean slate or a blank drawing paper. From there all you need is the slightest touch of vanity. You can go for a game of Cheekybingo at your local coffee shop in just a simple white tee with the smallest amount of makeup and still pull off a stunning look.
So how do you go for a mystically simple yet stunning look? First thing to do is to clean your face by washing it with lukewarm water and use any cleanser that you think that suits you then pat dry your face with a clean towel.
Next is to apply facial moisturizer with SPF on it and let it sit in to your skin to make your makeup stay longer. Then put on makeup foundation all over your face and be sure to evenly pat it off. And do not forget to conceal parts of your face that needs concealing such as blemishes, pimples and the dreaded bluish under eye circles then pat it off with a pressed powder to even out with your face color and to make it stay longer.
After the cleaning your face and evening out its color and concealing primary problems of it, you can then start having fun of putting on colors on your face and certainly like me you’ll soon enjoy and realize that being simple but with a touch of vanity means a more beautiful and attractive you.
Imagine yourself as an office worker and your work is piled up on your desk. The phone rings incessantly with customers demand that are next to impossible to meet. Your supervisor is displeased that you are not meeting the quota and when the situation seems out of hand, stress become distress paving its way to burnout.
Burdened with stress from anxieties and daily hassles, many try to escape by going on a night out with some girl friends or putting on a masquerade of cheerfulness while feeling depressed deep inside. But using escapist measures to deal with stress only increases frustration; they speed up the process of burnout. What then can we do when we feel the fire inside us slowly burning out?
In order to overcome feelings of helplessness, we must be able to feel that we are in control of our feelings and behavior. When frustration dominates our emotion and crushes our capacity to solve problems, it is easy to believe things are out of our hands. However, we should not just sit back and dwell on troublesome thoughts. Try to solve the problem step by step and do not procrastinate. Just by initiating positive actions, we will begin to feel better and in control.
Clinging to stand that is too high and constantly feeling that we are not measuring up to them is a sure way to burn out. But for those who know their limitations welcome help; be it housework, secular work, office work or whatever is threatening you with burnout. Delegate work where you can.
Might be that we need some rest. A leave of absence can work miracles for a potential victim of burnout. However, if circumstances do not allow us to do this, knowing how to have fun makes a big difference. Taking a break for a change of pace may even increase productivity and stimulating our mind toward creative thinking.
Most of the times we tend to forget the wonder our dear fingers can do to us. Imagine our fingers can fly across a typewriter or computer keyboard at perhaps a hundred words per minute. They can dance over the eighty-eight keys of a grand piano and translate a page of notes into a glorious music.
What about our thumb, have we noticed how delicately special it was made? Try this: spread out your palm and keep your fingers pointing straight up then bend each finger starting with the pinkie. Notice how hard it is to keep the other fingers from moving too? Now bend your thumb, move it up and down then move it in circle, you can do it virtually without the movement of the other fingers. This unique independence of the thumb made possible by the flexible saddle joint at its base and by having its own set of muscles, gives it many special capabilities.
One of these is that opposable thumb can contact the surface of each of the other fingers or provide a grip opposite anyone of them. An insignificant detail you might say, then go and try to pick up a coin without using your thumb or open a jar or turn a doorknob.
For all the work the fingers can do, they have amazingly few muscles. On the surface, this may seem to be a disadvantage since more muscles have more power. However, muscles tend to grow when in constant use. What would happen if our fingers were endowed with powerful muscles? It is not that attractive and useful I suppose.
With the amount of work the fingers perform, our hands would soon resemble thick paddles making delicate work difficult or impossible. How grateful we can be that it was wisely placed most of the muscles in the forearms linking them to the fingers by strong tendons. Indeed our beautiful fingers are fascinatingly made and we should be careful in dealing with them.
