WORLD PLANT MILK DAY!

Since 2017, August 22 has been an important date in the calendar, because it marks World Plant Milk Day.

Millions of people around the world are ditching dairy, and opting instead for healthy, delicious drinks made entirely from plants. There are many reasons to do this - including saving the planet, improving your health, and helping stop the exploitation of cows in the dairy industry.

Avoiding dairy is one of the most significant steps an individual can take in reducing their impact on the planet. Dairy farms are responsible for dangerous greenhouse gas emissions which exceed their plant-based counterparts. In addition, producing milk is resource-heavy, requiring large amounts of land and water.

So why not join the millions of people worldwide who are opting for kinder, more sustainable, and delicious plant milk?

American Foods That Canada Does Actually Better!!
I lived in Canada and in the U.S - No offense - but I feel like Canadian foods are better at some point :) I still miss Timhortons so bad!!! Coffee tasted great, Timbits and Iced Caps were just great in everyway. (1) Fries with Poutine Canadians take plain french fries to a whole new level by adding cheese and gravy to them. I used to eat this almost everyday in the back old days~ (2) Beer Okay, beer may be a drink, but it is definitely something Canadians do better than Americans. In Canada, the average “normal” beer has a higher alcohol contentthan American beer, with a range of 4.0 percent to 6.1 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) as compared to America’s 4.1 percent to 5.9 percent ABV. (Oh come on it's better than Coors for sure) (3) Chips Forget salt and vinegar, barbecue, and sour cream and onion potato chips. Canada has thebest flavorsthat you cannot buy in the US. Try Lay’s Ketchup chips, Ruffles All Dressed chips, Lays Dill Pickle chips and Hickory Sticks. And yes, we even havepoutine-flavored chips. I still miss the ketchup one <3 (4) Coffee I know America runs on Dunkin’, but that’s only because you guys do not have Tim Hortons (in most states). Tim Hortons’ coffee isfar superiorto that of Dunkin’ Donuts and if you haven’t heard of a “double double,” you sure are missing out. Try Ice Caps - I remember it was under $2 and tasted so much better than Starbucks coffee frap (which is like $3-4). (5) Milk You might be confused by this one. How can milk be better in Canada? Two words:bagged milk. Stop that face you’re making right now and understand just how amazing bagged milk is. Not only does ittaste better out of a bag, but it also is much more fun to pour, not to mention cheaper. It's cheap and tasty. You can use the milk one at a time - put the bagged milk in the plastic jar and once it's done, just thow away the garbage~ VOILA!! Click LIKE <3 if you agree!!!!
3 Skin Products That Have Actually Worked for Me
(image: glossier) Are you tired of buying products and seeing a whopping total of zero results? Same, girl. So today I'm going to share a few products that have actually had a noticeable impact on my skin. (image: mom fabulous) 1. RoC Deep Wrinkle Retinol Correction Holy cow guys. This stuff is absolutely magic in a bottle. Retinol in any dosage higher than this can only come with a perscription because it is incredibly strong. Creams with this product, if the dosage is right, practically erase fine (and not so fine) lines. I attacked my crows feet with this cream and I kid you not, I saw improvement and near-elimination of my deepest wrinkle in one week. One week. The little tube is a little pricey but good God does it work! Warning: I used the Day and Night cream religiously and after a few days I noticed that my skin was rather red. The labels warns that this happens and you skin will get used to it, but it persisted for longer than I liked. I stopped for a week, then went to only using the night cream and I haven't had a problem since. Retinol is a serious chemical so don't over-do it! Get your hands on it here! (image: pop sugar) 2. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment The winter weather is not kind to my lips and there is nothing I hate more than that tight, almost sticky-dry feeling you get when your lips are parched. While drinking water helps, I found that this lip treatment not only moisturized my lips but softened them, slightly lessened the lines on my lips, aaaand just as an added bonus, it tastes delicious. I got the color 'Bloom' which is supposed to work for pretty much all skin tones, but check out their collection and find one that works for you! Get your hands on it here! (image: klairs) 3. Klair's Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask This is so sci-fi it's not even funny. The mask has a quality that no matter how much you use it, it will slide back into its previous shape like memory foam. So every time you open the jar it looks brand new. Because of this, when you put the mask on your face is really squeezes into your skin. When I wake up, my skin is literally glowing. Warning: I only use this once and week because I found that if I used it more than once a week I got a small breakout (gone the next day) on my nose. That could have been related to my time of the month, but I didn't want to risk it again, plus you really don't need to use it that often! Get your hands on it here! What are some products that have ACTUALLY done something noticeable for you?
Doctors can personify the voices heard by people with schizophrenia. Instead of tormenting patients, the avatars get nicer over time, and in some cases totally relieve auditory hallucinations.
Schizophrenia: a mental disorder characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to understand what is real. Common symptoms include false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, hearing voices that others do not hear, reduced social engagement and emotional expression, and a lack of motivation. About 65% of patients with schizophrenia experience verbal auditory hallucinations, typically in the form of voices that emanate from perceived “others,” who tend to fit the same unsavory profile – they're domineering, derogatory and unremittingly hostile. (source) They tell them to do violent things, they cause them to lose control. But in a test in 2009-2011, there was a breakthrough in dealing with these violent voices. Giving the voices a face. The therapy allowed patients to create an avatar, or visual representation of the source of their perceived auditory hallucinations, known as the “persecutor,” whose speech closely matched the pitch and tone of the persecutory voice in their heads. Patients were then encouraged to engage in a dialogue with the avatar, who was controlled by a therapist. The results of the therapy were astounding, with some patients finding their hallucinations completely vanishing. Of course, there were some that did not have any change, but with the second round of testing an even higher percentage of patients found that their hallucinations lessened. According to the study’s lead author Tom K J Craig, PhD, FRCP, emeritus professor of social psychiatry at King’s College London, “The operation of power within this relationship is viewed as crucial…the voice-hearer assum[es] a submissive role characterized by feelings of inferiority and powerlessness that can reflect social relationships more generally,” researchers wrote. “The therapist (switching between speaking as therapist and as avatar) facilitates a dialogue in which the voice-hearer gradually gains increased power and control within the relationship, with the initially omnipotent voice loosening its grip over the hearer by becoming more conciliatory over time." Basically, they made the avatar be nicer overtime and gave the patient the feeling of having control over it. For the full article: here
