The loneliness at Christmas is a difficult emotional situation for those people who, for various reasons, feel especially alone at this time of year. The loss of a loved one, the recent transfer to an unknown place or the breakup of a relationship can soak up the sadness, depression, frustration, and despair these dates.

How to overcome loneliness at Christmas

One of the keys to not feeling alone at Christmas is that it is not obligatory to be happy every moment of the Christmas holidays. It is not advisable to idealize Christmas or to give it more important just because it is supposed to be the right thing to do. The first step to overcome loneliness, as pointed out by experts in psychology, is to relativize the Christmas dates and take them as a vacation over the calendar.

Accept the situation

Accepting the situation implies being honest with oneself, recognizing the feeling of loneliness and analyzing why and in what situations it appears or accentuates. This will allow us to be more realistic and live these dates in a way more in line with our current situation and needs. This also implies taking the initiative and, if, for example, we are far from the family, calling those friends and co-workers in the same situation and together planning your Christmas.

And, above all, let’s start taking advantage of those moments when you do want to be alone, for example, to read a good book, take a walk, listen to music or take a relaxing bath.

Rate the good of your life

Feeling alone is not being alone, so from time to time, it is convenient to remind us of all the good things that exist in our life (family, couple, friends, work, projects …). This is what we have to cling to banish negative feelings and that can also lead us to generalizations or unrealistic ideas.

Playing sports at Christmas

It is always a good time to play sports, but at this time it may be the best way to release endorphins and improve mood. It can be a time to practice winter sports or to start a new activity, which also helps to leave home because locking yourself in is not a solution. Playing sports is a good first step to start taking care of yourself more, the healthiest purpose of these dates.

Good Debt vs. Bad Debt. Beyond Tax Advice

When I think of life in today’s world, the thing that comes to mind is “Buyer Beware.” You are sold a house, a car, insurance, shoes, clothes, medicine, investments… Everything you think you need to survive and thrive is sold to you. Most of the time by someone who benefits from the sale, whether it is a commission, a bonus, a promotion, or just the fact that you become a regular customer.

Imagine how much different your life would be if you knew that every time you stepped out your door, someone, many times calling themselves an “expert,” had something to sell you. When you go to buy a car, the salesman, who is paid on commission, will try to sell you the most expensive car s/he can. When you go to buy a home, the realtor will show you homes more expensive than you can afford. A few years ago, a creative mortgage broker would have designed a loan for you that made you think you could afford an expensive home, even if you couldn’t. All of these “experts” are commission-based salesmen, trained and hired to sell you things. And their own livelihood depends upon them selling you as much as they can.

Absolutely no one is thinking of your budget, or how his or her sale fits into the big picture of what you can really afford. So, if you aren’t adding everything up and making sound choices on the big-ticket items, you’ll be drowning in credit card debt in no time at all. Most people are spending far too much on their housing, car, food, insurance, etc. – their basic needs. When you are struggling to survive, buried alive in bills, you are not able to enjoy life. The Thrive Budgets gives you time, money and permission to have fun, be charitable, educate yourself and invest for additional passive income while you sleep-all of the things that make life more enjoyable.

But the sales don’t stop there. The shoe salesman. The clothing salesman. The seminars. The newsletters. The TV ads. The nonprofit you donated to 25 years ago that still calls you every Christmas. Once, at a fish shop, the guy behind the counter actually tried to sell me a 25-pound fish! The twenty-something girl at the waxing salon just tried to convince me that nostril waxing is the latest fad and that it is healthy because it helps your allergies.

But the sales don’t stop there. The scare ads that tell you America is going to hell in a hand basket and only buying gold or electing a fiscal conservative President will fix it. (Congress controls the budget and taxes, not the President, however the President can start two wars, like President Bush did.) The “friend” who has a sure shot oil investment opportunity in Texas, where the studies were leaked (only to them) by Exxon Mobil (and there is no mention of whether that is actually legal)…

You are sold prescriptions to lower your blood pressure, to lower your cholesterol and to increase your blood flow. In fact, the best path to health – to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and increase blood flow-is to eat right and exercise (particularly in a nation where 1/3 of our citizens are obese). I was at a women’s health conference where none of the female doctors mentioned diet and exercise as an efficacious tool for the afore-mentioned – until one of the laywomen in the room stood up and asked why this had been overlooked.

As one personal example of this: my son’s pediatrician used to joke that he did his job too well. He only saw my son during well child checkups! The pediatrician I was using only one year prior to finding Dr. Jay Gonest lost her job when she prescribed year-round antibiotics to treat my son’s recurring ear infections. Dr. Jay’s pro-immune system, anti-allergy approach cured the problem in three short months, and promoted health so well that my son never got sick again!

When a person is past due paying their taxes, the situation often feels stressful. What does one do? How does one deal with the IRS? What options does one have? My suggestion is to contact IRS debt tax advisors.

First step is to get an overview of how much is owed.
It’s important to document how much unpaid tax you owe for each tax year and for each tax agency.

Worcester wants £ 33m. He claims to have a happy coupon

Born in Germany, 48-year-old Susanne Hinte reported to Camelot that he had the second highest payout in the history of the British Lotto: 66 million pounds. The woman claims that although the coupon was washed out with jeans, you can play the numbers.

Searching for the owner of the second coupon has lasted for two weeks. Camelot just revealed this weekend that his second win was in Worcester. Hinte lives here, mother of two children and grandmother of four grandchildren; a divorcee who was associated with a British soldier in Germany.

A German from Worcester began to search for her coupon only when information appeared about the place to fill the lucky six numbers. As he says, the coupon is in the pocket of her washed jeans. She has already sent his remains to the Camelot headquarters and all the nerves are now waiting for the decision of the lottery organizer.

As her daughter admitted, Susanne cries and does not leave his rented home in Worcester. It does not even read the letters and hundreds of emails that have already started to come to her from people who are craving for someone else’s cash . If he gets a win, he wants to help his family first. Part of the win is supposed to be spent on charity.

Natasha’s daughter works as an assistant at Morrison’s. I do not want to reveal what her mother is doing. She only talks about her having heart disease and has undergone surgery in the summer. She has been working all the time and is still working professionally. She wanted to stay anonymous, but the secret had not lasted long , especially since Susanne, asking for help, had told her salespeople at the newsstand where she had sent the coupon. They also made friends who wrote about their problems on Facebook.

Susanne lives in Warndon, a suburb of Worcester. Natu Patel, the owner of a three-mile kiosk, is convinced that a happy coupon, worth exactly 33,035,323 pounds, was bought at him. He did not bet he was expecting a gift from the lucky guy who bought it. There is also no certainty that it is about Susanne. All the more so because the Camelot spokesman confirmed that the missing lottery ticket had been received by several different people.

For a lost or missing coupon, the potential winner has 30 days. If none of the claims is accepted, the lottery will give you all the winnings (including the interest you make until your decision is made) for the charity. Financial experts estimate that 33 million pounds invested in a venture or 5 percent stake. Earnings per year are £ 200 an hour and £ 1.6 million a year.

The construction of warmer homes would save billions of British healthcare!

British winters are not as frosty as in Russia, but definitely island vacations do not belong to the warm. This is one of the important factors affecting the health of their residents. Experts are of the opinion that it would be sufficient to build warmer homes in the UK to avoid excessive spending on health care.

Anyone who has spent the winter in the UK knows that it is a nuisance not only because of the frosts, the cold and the humidity, which unfortunately penetrate our homes and dwellings. This is the cause of serious illness among the islanders.

 

Experts say that during the British winters the mortality rate in this country is quite high. Since the beginning of statistics, since 1950, as many as 2.6 million people have died as a result of complications related to excessive cooling of the body in the winter.

Experts are alarmed that homes and homes with temperatures around 16 degrees Celsius are particularly hazardous to their health, and their residents are most likely to die of lung disease.

8 hairstyles inspired by ‘Game of Thrones’ for your weddings this summer

In these months of the year, weddings continue to accumulate and leave us with no ideas. How many have you already had? How many are left? Is yours coming? So, taking advantage of the furor that is awakening the seventh season of Game of Thrones , we give you the best hairstyles of the series to inspire you: braids, collected, semi-collected, loose hair …

Since the saga is set in a fictional universe closely related to the Middle Ages, the whole aesthetic follows the tradition of the great houses of that time. In addition, many of them remember the Old Age, with Greece and Rome as main representatives. In any case, elegance and sensuality go hand in hand. Do you want to try your luck with these hairstyles?

Daenerys Targaryen (Khalessi) and the Dutch braids

She is a warrior woman and involved with the cause, who stains, leads and rules like a real woman. And, in turn, does not lose an ounce of femininity.

One of his star hairstyles looks as much on great dates as on more everyday events. It starts with a Dutch braid that starts at the crown. Then, after dividing the hair with a sharp stripe in the middle, we recovered the Dutch braids, one on each side. These braids have a special feature: they begin to braid from the bottom, not from above, with a much more original result. Next, we left two inches between the braids and built two more. In both cases, always attach in the center with a plastic gum. To finish, gel fixative to secure them and the rest of the hair loose, on the shoulders. You will be a princess with rock and roll .

Sansa Stark: loose, collected and braids

Sansa Stark has changed a lot of hairstyles throughout the seasons. The most used is the loose hair, separated with a line in the middle and joining behind the two tufts that would cover the face. To make it perfect, you must reduce the moisture of the hair and use products to prevent frizz.

Game of Thrones

However, Sansa has also brought her hair totally collected for star events, and in a very original way. It could be defined as a tiara of braids, but the process has much more. First, we must divide the hair into two, separating the upper (above the ears), and the lower part, where we begin to forge small braids from the two halves (next to each of the ears). Second, we get to work with the top: we made two other braids, this time larger . At the end, we turned the two large braids into spirals, holding them with forks, And the rest we place it on the head, like a diadem and fastened with forks. Finally, we take the small braids and place them as a diadem, in front of the large braids. We reinforce with forks to avoid major evils during the big day.

Finally, we resorted to one of Sansa’s latest hairstyles. This one is more sober and in agreement with the maturity that the young woman begins to acquire in the last seasons. It consists of three braids: two small and one large. The first two are built after splitting the hair in the middle, from the birth of hair. Taking three locks from the top to start the process, we will reinforce one of them (always the same) with more hair through new locks. In this way, the braid will be constructed along the head, from the front to the back, at which time the braid will be completed in a normal manner. At the end of the process, both braids are joined with a clasp or a similar complement. With the remaining hair, we made a thick braid . The result is comfortable and elegant.

Cersei Lannister: mixing styles

Cersei has become accustomed to wearing a similar hairstyle in almost all seasons. This consists of three parts divided into three pigtails at different heights. Start working with the medium, whose process is very simple:  a large and long braid. Go back to the first ponytail and divide it into two fine braids that are joined around that great braid we already had. To finish, take the third ponytail and release it. If you want to look like Cersei, slightly rip your hair loose and drop it on your shoulders. The result is that of a strong and confident queen of herself, with a huge appeal.

Game of Thrones

In the last two seasons, and due to the surprising turning points of the script, Cersei has been forced to cut her long mane (rather, she has been pruned by force). However, the final product has been a cut pixie style ,which looks great with the blond color of the protagonist. Although the hairstyle is ideal for girls with sweet features, the beauty of Lena Headey, something more aggressive, does not make you lose any kind of attraction.

Missandei and her wild afro

The young assistant Daenerys has a delicate beauty that receives the spark of his Afro style, imprinting rebellion to his angelic appearance. For those extremely curly hairs that seem to levitate, or for those looking for a look of this style without having the predetermined cut, take different strands and make curlers so that the curl is very marked. Repeat the process with the other locks and accompany it with a touch of fixative to make it perfect. You can also put curlers and ensure a physiognomy without cracks. It is a style with a lot of flow , very underground and that will always be fashionable even if it does not look like it.

Melisandre, the priestess of the flanked braid

That red color passion of her mane is excellent with the braid, one of the hairstyles of the Priestess of Game of Thrones . You just have to make a dash in the middle and split the hair into tufts. Then pick it aside and begin to build a braid with three of those strands. But it’s not all said: the key is to stop halfway and leave the end of the braid unmade. This end can be adorned with a beautiful rubric: a wave or soft curl with iron or curling iron to brighten the result.

Game of Thrones

These are the most interesting hairstyles of the saga, many of them repeated in other characters. If you have a wedding, whether you are the protagonist or one more guest,  opt for these film designs and combine it with outfits that overflow personality.

The pound exchange rate from last week surprised experts who had not previously anticipated such problems for the British currency. At the same time, the euro rose to the same level as the rebound. However, experts point out that there are other reasons for this decline.

Certainly, the pound was affected by the inflation that has been rising since June, which is 1.2% at the moment, which also exceeded data experts’ expectations. The European Central Bank even considered reducing its guarantee to support its euro printing program. Ultimately, however, it was decided that more evidence was needed for rising inflation.

“The pound exchange rate for the euro did not have the best start this week when it had to pay 1.13 euros per pound,” said Laura Parsons, TorFX financial analyst. Meanwhile, the exchange rate of the pound against the dollar slightly increased after the end of last week fell.

“The British pound failed to take advantage of President Donald Trump’s suggestion on Friday that trade between the United Kingdom and the United States should be concluded as soon as possible, due to the lack of internal support the exchange rate may continue to hitherto.”

Currently, the pound exchange rate to the dollar is $ 1.29.
