Science Explains Why It’s Harder To Poop While On Vacation

Pooping, is a delicate art form.

There are several variables that come into play when attempting the perfect..umm.. poop. Time and setting are two pivotal things one must take into account with attempting to deliver a smooth #2.

Apparently, 40 percent of travelers have a rough time squeezing the Charmin while on vacation, a whopping 60 percent less than 100 percent.

“Any time you leave your general habitat, it’s throwing your gut microflora off balance,” says Brooke Alpert, a dietician and self-professed professor of poopy.
If those two constipation causes weren’t enough, just a time zone change can add to the distress upon your gut: the time difference can throw off your natural bathroom..ehh... rhythm.
So how to we help with this offset these issues? Drink more water. Eat more veggies. Enjoy some fruit with your breakfast. Keep those things in your diet, and you will keep a steady flow through most situations.

How to Quit Smoking: 7 Best Ways According to Scientists
According to researchers, those who decide to quit smoking make up to 30 attempts Estimating the number of quit attempts it takes to quit smoking successfully in a longitudinal cohort of smokers before they succeed. This is due to the difficulties of abandoning bad habits in general, as well as with the individual characteristics of the body. The method that worked for five of your friends can misfire you. And vice versa: you can come up with your own way to tie up a smoke that categorically does not suit your friends, but it turns out to be incredibly effective specifically in your case. These 7 ways to quit smoking have proven both statistically and scientifically. Try to find yours among them. 1. Set a date to prepare Image - Source It is from this that experts recommend start a personal fight against smoking. And there are reasons for that. Most smokers have decided at least once in their lives: “Everything, from tomorrow - not a single puff!” Of course, they kept their word. Up to the first nervous shake or moment of oblivion. “Oh, I'm with a cigarette, I don’t even know how it happened ...” The problem is that smoking is not only physiological, but also psychological dependence. You may not be aware of this, but a cigarette is closely associated with significant, vital things. For example, the ability to exhale in the midst of a nervous working day. Discuss in the smoking room what cannot be discussed in the office. Talk on the phone with your loved one. Drink a cup of coffee without thinking about anything - just "sticking" into the landscape around. If you quit smoking on the same day, a gaping hole forms in the place of these significant pleasures. Everything seems to be OK, a cup of coffee in hand, but something is missing. And this deficit spoils all the pleasure. Or a little different: before a smoke break was an opportunity to take a pause relatively legally, but now you do not smoke, which means that there is no reason for a pause. And so you continue to work without interruption, exhausting the nervous system and driving yourself into a state of permanent fatigue . It is not surprising that your subconscious mind will try to return a saving cigarette, which is associated with relaxation and pleasure. And it will return, believe me. Therefore, quitting smoking from tomorrow is a controversial option. It’s better to set an exact date. Not too close to get ready, and not too far not to change your mind. The preparation is as follows. You need to untie smoking from everyday relaxation and pleasure. If you are used to combining a cup of coffee with a cigarette - drink, but without a cigarette. Promise yourself: “I will drink coffee now, and have a smoke in 15 minutes” - and keep the promise. If you need informal communication with colleagues, go for it without a cigarette, again promising yourself a smoke break some time later. When day X comes in the end, your withdrawal from quitting a cigarette will not be so strong, because at least psychologically you will be prepared for it. 2. Record triggers and exclude them from life Image - Source This recommendation is partly related to the paragraph above. The bottom line is that often we could not smoke. But there are situations that directly make us reach for the pack. These are the so-called triggers. Calculate them: for several days carefully describe all the moments when you lit a cigarette. "I drink morning coffee." "I lit up to talk with a girl." "I went out with my colleagues into the yard, I smoke for the company." Then try to modify at least those situations that are repeated day by day. For example, if you are used to smoking a cigarette with morning coffee, start drinking tea. Or go to healthy breakfasts : you hardly want to smoke with oatmeal. Try to develop a replacement strategy for each of the detected triggers. You will not get rid of the addiction right away, but you can significantly reduce the amount of nicotine. And this is a serious step towards success. 3. Replace smoking with other pleasures or employment Image - Source Perfect time to quit smoking - vacation. There are no stresses provoking to reach for a cigarette. Interesting activities are full. It’s enough not to take cigarettes with you to the rafting along a rough mountain river or go on a bus tour in Europe, where no one will brake or air the Louvre to give you the opportunity to smoke, and you will be surprised to find that you can easily do without smoke for several rich and interesting days. The main thing here is to draw the awareness from such an experience: “I do not smoke because I want, but because I am just bored and have nothing to occupy myself with.” Sounds so-so, right? Try to get rid of boredom. Look for activities that could replace cigarettes. And you quit smoking. 4. Go in for sports Image - source If we talk about substitution therapy, then exercise is one of the most healthy options. Studies show, sports activities distract from thoughts about cigarettes, cheer up and give a sense of control over oneself. After working with the barbell or swimming a kilometer or two, you begin to feel like a strong, strong-willed person who can’t completely give up on the teeth for the sake of some kind of puff. 5. Decide how to overcome the impulse Image - Source The desire to smoke most often occurs spontaneously. First, we grab a cigarette on emotions, drag ourselves on, and only then the brain yells: “What are you doing, we promised!” And it's too late. Therefore, it is extremely important to maintain a short pause between “Oh, how I want to smoke” and the click of a lighter. This pause is really small. Experts assure that an acute desire to grab a cigarette lasts no more than 3-5 minutes. Think about how you can fill this time - and try to bring this action to an automatic level. For example, pulled to nicotine - push up several times. Or a minute we stand at the bar. Or chew a hard apple. Or bite a toothpick. Or just open the window and take a few deep breaths. Any option is suitable, if only the pause placeholder was stably at hand at the right time. 6. Connect social networks Image - Source It sounds funny, but those smokers who talk about the course of their struggle with a bad habit in social networks are successful significantly more often than those who try to fight cigarette cravings offline. Thanks to Facebook or Twitter, other people seem to support you. In addition, social networks are full of motivating stories of those who have already started smoking. And the more we get to know other people's successful cases, the more we believe in our own victory. 7. Increase the content of vegetables and fruits in the diet Image - source A study conducted by scientists from the University of Buffalo (USA), proved: the more vegetables and fruits a person consumes, the easier it is for him to stop smoking. The point is that our brain often confuses cravings for tobacco with cravings for fiber. Having treated ourselves with a cabbage salad or a crispy apple, we are deceiving the body: it begins to seem to him that he has already received the desired, and therefore the cigarette seems to be irrelevant.

Benefits of Natural Medicine: Sea moss, Bladderwrack, Tumeric, Maca, and Chasteberry
Hello fam! I've been making adjustments to my lifestyle so I can have a healthier life. One big thing that I do is utilize natural alternatives to my healthcare regimen. I take vitamins and use natural ways to regulate my hormones levels since I do have POCS. I know longer have cysts but I do have the other issues as in insulin resistance, over weight, and irregular hormone levels. Again I'm not a doctor so make sure you always consult with your doctor before doing anything. I'm just sharing some things I do that has helped me greatly! I'm a texture person I just add this to my scrambled eggs. This does have a salty sea taste since it is from the ocean. I know people who purchase the actual algae and soak in hot water to drink as a tea. I purchased my sea moss gel from a legit herbal person who also can mix whatever other vitamins or herb in your batch. Tumeric When using this try to get organic in the powder form. My mom even used this for inflammation. When ingesting this make sure to add Black pepper to activate this. Basically, no use taking this if you don't add the Black pepper. The Black pepper allows our body to absorb the tumeric. I just sprinkle on food. It does stain so be careful. I use these both to regulate my hormones and this stuff is golden! I do not have the issues I had with my POCS once I changed to taking these two together. I actual purchased these in liquid form recently and love it. However, you can purchase the maca in powder form and both in supplement form.
[펌] 단무지의 유래와 색에 관한 이야기
단무지의 유래에 대한 설은 매우 여러가지이다. 심지어 한국의 승려인 택암이 전파했다고도 알려져있는데 뭐 이건 같은 승려인 신미대사가 한글을 만들었다는 이야기와 동급인 내용이고 전국시대 당시 일본의 타쿠앙 소호라는 승려가 만든 타쿠앙즈케라는 선식에서 시작되었다는 설이 가장 유력하다 타쿠앙은 절에서 장기간 동안 보관할 수 있는 간단한 음식을 만들기 위해 쌀겨와 소금으로 무를 절이고 버무린 뒤 항아리 담아 익히는 방법을 개발하게 된다. 이후 타쿠앙이 있던 동해사라는 사찰에 당시 쇼군인 도쿠가와 이에미츠가 방문하게 되어 대접을 해야하는데 산해진미에 익숙한 이에미츠를 위한 고기 같은게 절에 있을리가 없고 그냥 이 무절임에다 밥을 내어주게 됐다. 의외로 담백한 맛에 이에미츠가 반하게 됐고 이에미츠는 이 반찬의 이름을 물었지만 아무 이름도 없는 무절임이라는 말에 개발자인 타쿠앙의 이름을 붙혀 타쿠앙즈케 즉 타쿠앙절임 이라고 이름을 지어주게된다. 이 간단해보이는 무절임이 긴박한 전장터에서 밥을 제때 챙길 수 없는 병사들에게 쓸모가 있을 것으로 판단하고 이에미츠는 이후 출병하는 병졸들에게도 통으로 허리춤에 차게한 채 전쟁을 하도록 했다고 알려져 있다. 그렇게 ‘타쿠앙’은 오랜 시간동안 일본의 대표적인 야채절임으로 전해져 왔고 쌀겨로 수개월간 숙성시키는 방식으로 인해 제작 비용이 높은 고-오급 반찬으로써 막부의 장군이나 호위무사들의 밥상에서나 볼수 있는 음식이 됐다. 그런데 원조인 타쿠앙의 색깔은 지금 우리가 먹는 단무지처럼 노란게 아니라 뒤죽박죽이었다. 앞서 말한 쌀겨로 숙성시키는 과정에서 숙성기간에 따라 무가 노랗거나 회색 또는 갈색으로 변색되는데 만드는 사람마다 색이 달라서 이게 무슨 절임인지도 모를 지경이었다. 결국 타쿠앙을 만드는 사람들은 색을 통일하기 위해 치자나무 열매를 우린 물 또는 울금을 첨가해서 노랗게 만들게 되었고 20세기에 들어서 타쿠앙이 공장에서 대량 생산되면서부터 아예 황색 색소를 이용하는 케이스가 정착해 우리가 아는 단무지 색으로 바뀌게 된 것이다. 우리나라엔 언제부터 단무지가 나온 것일까? 일제강점기 때 명월관이라는 식당이 처음 문을 열게되는데 이 명월관을 시작으로 우리나라에 외식문화가 성행하게 됐다. 근데 당시엔 돈있는 사람들만 이런 고급식당에서 외식을 즐길 수 있었는데 주 고객이 누구일까? 바로 일본인이었다. 이 일본인들을 대접 하기 위해 고오급 반찬인 타쿠앙를 내오게 되었고 이것이 우리나라에 정착하게 된것이다. 중국집에서 단무지를 반찬으로 내게 된 것도 역시 일제 강점기 동안 인천에서 문을 열기 시작한 산동성 출신 중국인들의 요리집이 외식열풍으로 인해 전국으로 퍼져나가며 마찬가지로 주 고객인 일본인 들의 입맛을 고려하여 내오게 된 것이다. 그때까지도 타쿠앙 이나 다꽝으로 불리던 이 고급반찬은 시대가 흐르고 급성장한 한국의 경제 상황에 맞춰 만만하고 친숙한 식재료가 됐고. 부르는 이름이 타쿠앙에서 단무지라고 변하게 되어 가장 성공적으로 일본의 잔재를 털어낸 단어가 됐다. 이렇게 한 중 일의 근대역사의 흐름이 고스란히 녹아있는 단무지는 어엿한 한국의 대표반찬이 되어 우리의 밥상을 지키고 있다.
