How our teeth look can certainly age us, which I don’t think many of us do think about.
So how can we make sure that we are taking care of our smile?

Taking A Break Is Important
No matter how little time you have left to study for an exam, you should always give yourself plenty of breaks. Even if you are doing a quick twenty minutes of revision, it is imperative you break up the block of work. These breaks can be as little as a couple of minutes running down into the kitchen to grab a drink. Science shows that working out can be a great way to break up your studies. It allows you to completely forget about your work. Not only that, though, but you’ll feel extremely rejuvenated when you go back and hit the books!

Being a teenager in the early 21st century isn’t exactly what you might call worry free. We’re under pressure like never before to perform and do well in everything we do. It’s not that we’re averse to doing well. And we’re certainly not without our talents as a generation. But it’s hard to enjoy the moment when you know so much is riding on your decisions. The bottom line? We need to make good decisions early on if we’re going to be able to get what we want out of life.
So what should we do?
Build Up People Skills
Have you ever been around somebody who is really successful? They’re almost always outwardly focused people. When you talk to them, they seem genuinely curious about you and what you’re doing. Sometimes, it can feel a bit embarrassing. After all, what’s so interesting about your life? But you’re nevertheless drawn in by their interest in you.
It might seem a bit daunting, but there’s nothing to stop you from doing the same. Practicing being curious in other people and what they’re doing will go a long way to improving the impression you create. And, as we all know, impressions are important.
Learn English To A High Standard
Going to English classes and learning to speak English fluently is, therefore, a great tool to have in your toolkit. When you want a job in the future, your ability to tell people your ideas will be a major consideration. Being able to speak and use English could be what lands you a job in your dream industry.
Manage Your Money
Managing your money is one of most important life skills you can have. It’s all about deferring gratification. In other words, you don’t just go out and blow your money straight away on the things you want. Instead, you wait a while, putting money aside for a rainy day.
But how can you practice managing your money? Well, one thing you can do is open a saving account. Accounts, where you don't have immediate access to your money tend to be the best. For one, you can’t fall prey to temptation and just withdraw all your savings. The other reason is that they tend to pay more interest, which is good if you’ve got a big college bill to pay.
Learn To Cook
Cooking is at the heart of what it means to be a human being. After all, people have been cooking for hundreds of thousands of years. And it’s important that we learn how to do it. Not cooking is one of the reasons why so many of us are overweight. And it’s one of the reasons why we’ve never got any money. Take out is way more expensive than home-cooked. Buzzfeed has some great cooking ideas to get you started.
A lot of people might not consider Las Vegas for a family vacation. Known as ‘Sin City’ for the large presence of alcohol and gambling, this is a destination usually reserved for bachelor parties. But Las Vegas offers all kinds of entertainment, for people of all ages. This can actually be one of the most exciting places for a family vacation.
Here are some of the things you try out while vacationing in Las Vegas with your family.
Stay In The Best Accommodation
Las Vegas is known for some of the most luxurious accommodation in the land. There are high and brightly lit hotels that overlook the strip. However, while most of these hotels are designed to let you go downstairs and gamble, you might want something tamer for a family trip.
You can still get the luxury without the high price. There a lot of apartments and condos with fancy rooms and nice balconies for a perfect stay. So instead of going for one of the big hotels, rejuvenate yourself with hot vacation rentals in Las Vegas. You can get great views of Vegas and a place for your whole family to sleep.
Check Out The Theme Parks
Las Vegas isn’t just for partying- there’s a ton of kid-friendly attractions you can enjoy during the day. The Adventuredome features 25 rides and attractions, with some themed around children’s cartoon characters.
If you’re looking for somewhere to cool off, try out Wet’n’Wild. This is Nevada’s biggest waterpark. It has slides, pools and rides suitable for all age groups, so it’s ideal for a family day out.
See The Unique Attractions
You’re not restricted to just theme park. Las Vegas offers a lot of unique events and attractions your family will love. If you’re a fan of CSI, MGM Grand offers CSI: The Experience, which puts you in the shoes of a crime scene investigator.
Other unique attractions include a Comedy Pet Theater with live animals and Hershey’s Chocolate World. Las Vegas also has a Madame Tussauds. Being known as The Entertainment Capital of the World has its perks, so there’s more than enough family activities.
Do Some Thrill Seeking
There’s plenty of fun to be had for thrill seekers in Las Vegas. There are lots of places for bungee-jumping, zip lining and even some indoor skydiving attractions.
If you’re looking for something closer to ground, you could also try go-karting. The amusement parks offer some great rollercoasters too, so Vegas is truly a thrill seeker’s city.
There are a lot of shopping centers and malls in Vegas for those who want to indulge themselves in a little retail therapy. Many also offer special events, such as runway shows in the aptly named ‘Fashion Show’ mall.
The best shopping center for a family day out is Town Square. It offers over 1.5 million square feet with shops, restaurants, cinemas and a huge arcade. Children can also have fun in the outdoor play area. In the summer, Town Square also offer free, outdoor movie viewings, so there’s plenty to do here for your whole holiday!
moody and teary. But what we eat can be responsible for messing up those hormones. If you want a balanced, focussed and healthy mind and body, maybe eating a balanced diet can help.
Some doctors still say that poor nutrition during the teenage years can lead to a shorter stature and later puberty onset. But how is this going to be a problem later in life? The teenage years are notorious for being unpleasant and difficult. And we all move on and forget about the worst of it. However, some studies are showing that an obsession with eating habits in our teens can lead to a lifetime of bad eating choices.
We are also keen to enjoy our bodies most at this age. The inhibitions and shyness of the teenage years has gone. While we’re not necessarily ready to settle down, we’re keen to experience as much as possible. As we near the end of our twenties, it’s possible that some of the signs of aging are starting to show themselves already.
You may also start to become concerned about your career options and pension, especially if you have a mortgage. This is why the late thirties can be one of the most stressful times in your life. Stress is just one of the things that can contribute to the signs of aging. By the end of the thirties, you may be trying to maintain a healthy weight while juggling parenthood, marriage and a career. It’s not going to be easy, and you may wish you had taken more care in your younger years.
There are many older people of this age and beyond that still enjoy very active lives. Many of these people were very active throughout their lives from their teen years. Will you be enjoying that extra drink on Saturday night, or planning for the next fifty years?
Try these three techniques and
AMAZING YOUR BODY IS
A SUPPORTIVE FRIEND
We all have negative feelings towards our body from time to time. We may be fixated on how it looks but many of us take for granted all of the incredible things it does for us. From being able to see to tasting delicious food, we have a lot to thank our body for. So when you start thinking about how much you hate your things or arms, name something that you love about your body instead. This will help to alter your mindset and banish these thoughts of negativity from your mind. Start giving your body the care and attention it needs and it shouldn’t take long for you to start seeing how amazing it is.
If you are feeling down about your appearance, always talk to someone about it. Discuss how you feel with a supportive friend or family member, either face to face or via email. Sometimes it can be easier to write down how you are feeling rather than speaking about it openly. These discussions aren’t always the easiest. But keeping your emotions locked up can make you feel worse. Your friend might be able to offer their advice and support during this difficult time. They may even have had similar feelings themselves that they can talk to you about. This could provide you with a different perspective and make you feel more positively about yourself. It will also show you that you are not the only person dealing with emotions which can provide immense comfort.
Don’t act on impulse
When you’re self-conscious or hate a part of your body, it can be easy to act impulsively. You might book yourself in for a nonsurgical nose job or a breast augmentation before you’ve really thought things through. Cosmetic surgery is not always the option, especially if done for the wrong reasons. It’s often also something you cannot reverse, and it could make you even more miserable about how you look. You should consider whether your dislike for part of your appearance may be related to something else. Perhaps you’ve been comparing yourself to your friend, or you’re worried about starting a new job. Once you’ve determined the cause, your hatred of your appearance should decrease significantly.
Fully embracing your imperfections and changing the way you perceive yourself may take time. But making the decision to change your mindset is a positive and crucial first step.

It’s 2016, and girls officially run the world. These days, if you want to be a business woman, you can be. And thank the heavens for that! However, even the most successful and savvy of business women can run into trouble when it comes to packing. The items you’ll want with you vary massively to what you might take on a girls holiday or trip with the family.
Whether you’ve got your first ever work trip coming up or your 600th, read on to check out which THREE items you should double check you’ve packed!
1) Business Cards
If you asked 100 business women and men what the most important thing to take on a business trip is, they’d say this. Business cards! Technology may be King these days, but this is one area it hasn’t won on yet. The amount of time it takes to type out your contact details on someone’s phone, iPad or laptop? That’s your name, email
address, phone number, website…? Two minutes or more. The amount of time it takes to hand over all of your details via a card- one second. Save your time- and your potential client, partner or customers time, and remember your business cards. Always pack more than you think you might need, too. They’re not heavy, and you’ll be glad you had them if you need them!
You will be hard pushed to find a Dentist these days who says manual toothbrushes are better than electric ones. That’s because electric toothbrushes are simply the best at keeping your tongue, teeth and gums healthy. They remove stains in a way that keeps your teeth white and prevent things like gum disease. They do this by quite simply being good at what they do- removing dirt and food. They’re also fantastic for giving you and allowing you to maintain good breath. Bad breath is the last thing you want when interacting with different people on a work trip. So, make sure you pack yours. If you don’t already have one, look on this link for a handy review guide.
Public plug sockets are popping up all over the place these days; trains, planes and cafes. But even still, there is never enough to go around. At the same time, our phones are getting more and more advanced. The more they can do, the less the battery can last. This leaves us
with a big dilemma. Our phones are of critical importance, the battery runs flat fast, and there are not enough places to recharge it. Disaster. Thankfully, this disaster no longer has to apply to you. Portable chargers are no longer irritatingly heavy and bulky like they used to be. They’re also not as prohibitively expensive as they were in the beginning. Invest in a good one, that holds charge for several days (or even weeks) and take it everywhere with you. Not only will you be glad of it, but you may even be able to help out a fellow business woman in need!
