(advertorial) So, you’ve tried almost every tip and sleep aid possible on how to sleep better. You’ve bought over-the-counter pills, changed your routine, and even cut down your coffee intake.

Nothing makes me more jealous than hearing people talk about sleep. I’ve struggled with sleep for as long as I can remember, and I’ve tried just about everything to get more of it: Regular exercise, meditation, solid sleep hygiene, melatonin and magnesium, to name a few.

Some of it has certainly helped, but only for certain periods of time when I didn’t have much on my mind. As soon as I found something to worry about, all hope was lost. That no-tech-before-bedtime rule plus a melatonin tablet didn’t get me anywhere fast.

Perplexed doctors eventually gave me a prescription for Klonopin, a medication many clinicians assign to patients for anxiety. While it helped me fall asleep, I spent the entire next day feeling like a slightly nauseous zombie. I felt equally as terrible as I did after a night of poor sleep, so I decided it wasn’t worth it.

That’s precisely why I was intrigued when I started hearing about CBD, or cannabidiol, a nonpsychoactive compound found in the cannabis or hemp plant that apparently helps with sleep and anxiety. I didn’t exactly get my hopes up ― after all, tons of natural remedies that worked for other people hadn’t worked for me ― but I figured it was worth a shot.

CBD can be taken in a few ways. Oil is probably the most popular, however using the Tanka CBD Bracelet which is an innovation utilizing patented cutting-edge technology. The finest quality CBD contained inside the Tanka Bracelet is released gradually but continuously. After a week of using the Tanka CBD bracelet, it was clear I’d stumbled across something kind of remarkable. I often slept well the first few nights of trying something new before it stopped working its magic, which I partially attribute to the placebo effect. With Tanka CBD Bracelet, however, the good nights of sleep kept on coming.

My racing thoughts seemed to come to a screeching halt within an hour of putting it, and when I got into bed I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. Even better, I woke up feeling refreshed. And this isn’t unusual: As Michael Breus, a clinical psychologist and board-certified sleep specialist, explained in a 2017 HuffPost article, there’s a good chunk of research to suggest that CBD can be beneficial for rest. Research shows CBD may increase overall sleep amounts and reduce insomnia. CBD has also been shown to improve sleep in people who suffer from chronic pain.

And how does CBD compare to other sleep supplements like melatonin? Lidicker explained that while she thinks melatonin is great, it has a different impact on the brain and body.

“CBD appears to help with sleep because of its anti-anxiety properties and ability to promote relaxation,” she said, noting that melatonin directly signals to the body that it’s evening and time to go to sleep by raising the naturally occurring levels of melatonin already in the body.

That explained why melatonin made me sleepy and helped with jet lag, but didn’t to help with the underlying anxiety that was causing my insomnia in the first place.

GO TANKA – AN ENHANCED QUALITY OF LIFE

Proprietary slow-release CBD Bracelet containing Organic Hemp and Zero THC for hassle-free, therapeutic relief and healthy living. The Tanka CBD Bracelet is an innovation utilizing patented cutting-edge technology, that enables the absorption of CBD through the skin. The finest quality CBD contained inside the Tanka Bracelet is released gradually but continuously, offering relief for some people from conditions such as inflammation, anxiety, and insomnia.

Conclusion

In our search, we found GoTanka CBD bracelet as the best one for sleep disorders so far. This particular oil comes from hemp plants that are grown with no chemicals and pesticides involved, making it safe for you.

The coronavirus has devasted nations across the world, having originated in a wet market somewhere in the Wuhan region of China back in 2019. Thousands of people have been infected, and many have tragically perished before their time. The cost to human life and the economy is what can only be described as possibly apocalyptic, but there is a silver lining.

It’s hard to remain positive when talking about a dangerous pandemic like the coronavirus, no matter how good a writer you are or how well you arrange fancy words. Thousands of older people have died from the coronavirus, and it’s already brought untold heartache and pain to many. One’s heart goes out these people as it does for millions of others who are on full lockdown and forced to stay at home for the foreseeable future.

With all that said, the coronavirus outbreak does come with a positive side even if it’s unexpected and counterintuitive. Here are five reasons why the coronavirus could change the course of your life for the better and teach you some long-overdue and very valuable life lessons.

Learn Humility

Without trying to judge anyone here, it’s a fact that we live in times of plenty, and that means there are a lot of bulging pockets and overinflated egos around. Whether it’s money or status, fast cars, or expensive brands, many people, young and old, are anything but humble. As the coronavirus outbreak has cities on lockdown in a way unprecedented in modern times, folks are forced to think about the bigger picture. When all you’re allowed to do is visit the local grocery or drugstore for essentials, the meaning of life takes on a whole different hue. Humility is possibly the most important lesson of all in tough times as so many other vital lessons start with it.

Learn Patience

News reports can only be described as messianic these days. With the coronavirus spreading faster and wider than expected in over 100 countries around the world, some governments have essentially put the general public under house arrest, overnight and without warning or much explanation. That means that people have to wait for things like deliveries or even food items longer than usual, not to mention lining up for longer at the grocery store. It might take some getting used to, but in the throwaway, take-away culture in which we live, patience is a great character trait to learn and master. 

Learn Tolerance

In many ways, tolerance comes from learning patience, but the two still differ. For example, some people, and perhaps those who suffer from anxiety are probably more worried than you are about catching the coronavirus. Maybe it annoys you that some folks walk around wearing scary face masks and blue gloves, but don’t let it. The coronavirus outbreak is something new and will take some getting used to. Don’t judge others for being what you perceive to be overanxious or pushy. Simply accept that everyone deals with trauma in different ways.

Learn Kindness

It’s hard to think of a more unifying time in recent memory, even if ironically, it’s thanks to a dangerous and deadly virus. People across the world are coming together in surprising ways, to stay positive and help those who need it most. Kids are talking daily with their classmates and teachers on platforms such as Zoom, while other people have initiated programs to deliver food to the most affected. People know that now’s the time to be kinder to others and to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” 

Learn Love

In the hustle and bustle of the modern age in which we live, many young parents are lucky to get to spend two hours a day of quality time with each other, let alone with their kids. After work, shopping, housework, homework, chores, and a million other things, little time remains for most to enjoy truly meaningful family time. Coronavirus has put at least a temporary stop to that as families are forced to stay at home and spend time together. This encourages people to learn to appreciate the little things in life and to start to appreciate their loved ones in ways not possible before.

During turbulent times, investors are right to second guess themselves and ensure that their hard-earned cash is being invested wisely. While short-term investments can be lucrative, it’s the long-term ones that make the substantial profits over time.

The coronavirus has all but brought new investments to a halt as people begin to worry about the future. As it stands, according to the World Health Organization, 160,994 coronavirus cases have been recorded globally so far. Many fear that corona could bring the world economy to a standstill and cost a total of $2.7 trillion in lost output. We’re taking a moment to look five of the safest ways to invest your money as corona sweeps the world.

Stock Funds

Stock funds, whether an ETF or a mutual fund, are a good and safe way to invest money. Stock funds are suited to investors who want to profit from the stock market but don’t want a full-time job of monitoring rises and falls. With a stock fund, investors get a weighted average return on their money from all the companies included, making it a safer bet than just holding a small number of stocks.

Growth Stocks

Growth stocks do come with some risk when it comes to investing but they also offer the promise of high growth and massive returns. If you don’t mind taking some risk, growth stocks can offer substantial returns quickly and perform generally well over time. If you do invest in a particular growth stock, make sure you do your due diligence and research. High-risk tolerance is a must and you’re looking at between two and five years for a return.

Property Investments

Real estate is one of the best investments and a great place to keep money. It takes to capital to get started on the property ladder, but returns are high, constant and most importantly, long-term. Real estate is probably the most popular investment around the world and is considered for the most part to be safe and secure. If you invest in a good property in a good area and manage that asset well, real estate is one of the safest places to put your money at this time.

Bond Funds

Whether a mutual fund or an ETF, bond funds contain several bonds from a range of issuers. With a bond fund, investors receive a pre-agreed amount of annual interest. When the bond expires, the issuer repays the principle before the bond itself is redeemed. Bond funds are considered to be safe investments as they are diverse and hardly affects by just one problematic bond. If you want a stable, long-term investment, bond funds are well worth considering.

IRA CD

Investors who want to play things on the safe side, especially during these uncertain times, may wish to opt for an IRA CD. Having an IRA CD offers the benefit of guaranteed income with zero risk. All one need do is stick to the rules of the IRA and let the interest build up. When it comes to getting paid out, this is a solid investment opportunity.

During these troubled times, as the coronavirus pandemic spreads rapidly across the world, one of the worst affected members of society are children. Going to school and sticking to a routine is vital for kids, so imagine how they feel as they see the world around them in panic.

Kids have been saying those fateful words (I’m bored!) for many years, but now they may actually have a point. While most parents simply turn on the TV or banish their kids to the sofa for some quality time with their Playstation when their children are bored, today’s reality is rapidly changing. With the sudden spread of the coronavirus across most of the world, millions of school kids are sitting at home trying to make sense of the whole thing. With many of those minors in quarantine as well as off school, being too bored at home is no longer an option. Here are five of the most important activities kids can do at home to ward off the boredom and keep their body and mind active and engaged.

Morning Stretch

For children spending extended periods at home due to the coronavirus, exercise needs to be a vital part of every day. The best time to exercise is in the morning, first thing, or after breakfast. As well as remaining in optimal health, exercise helps kids to release pent up energy and frustration, and that’s important due to the fears instilled by the new pandemic. Begin with some stretches, followed by some cardio work like running or short sprints. The front or back yard is perfect if the weather is fair.

Healthy Diet

After than morning stretch, it’s time for a balanced, healthy, and satisfying breakfast. A bowl of fruity pebbles is acceptable sometimes, especially if your little one will burn it off at school before long. However, children in quarantine need to eat healthy food, and there’s no room for sugar-packed cereals. Every parent knows it’s hard, but a change in routine could be the perfect opportunity to implement new, healthier eating habits. Plenty of fruits and vegetables, juices, smoothies, and nutritious snacks should become part of the new routine, within reason. 

Stimulated Mind 

Sorry kids, five hours on your smartphone or Xbox console doesn’t count as brain stimulation. There’s no doubt mom will let you play your favorite game for an hour later; after you’ve completed your chores and learned something useful. No one wants to come across as harsh, but now’s the time to step up and feed your brain. Read a book from school, do a math quiz, or brush up on your geography. The truth is that it really doesn’t matter, as long as you’re stimulating that incredible brain of yours and keeping it working at full capacity.

Stay Connected

Being home alone in forced quarantine no matter what form it takes is hard for children, let alone adults and parents. These days, as well as Skype and What’s App, there are some fantastic platforms such as Zoom, which can be used to teach whole classes of students. Many schools offer some kind of online learning for students in quarantine, but keeping in touch with teachers, friends, and family is equally important. Send a text message or a cute emoji and tell the people you care for that you’re okay. 

Play Hard

No one’s trying to ruin the fun as being in quarantine is a challenging thing to go through, whether you’re aged three, six, or thirteen. When you’ve taken care of the other important stuff as listed above, it’s time to play and to enjoy playtime to the full. You can hit the Playstation if you want, skate in the yard or play some board games with your siblings. It’s so important to stay positive and in a happy state of mind when you have to stay home for long periods. Find time to do what makes you feel the happiest and don’t be shy to tell your parents or other family members that loudly and clearly.

While the roots of the so-called Coronavirus remain unclear, it’s devastating effects are being felt around the world. Millions of people in Northern Italy are in quarantine while traveling restrictions and fear of a pandemic has all but paralyzed some countries.

coronavirus

COVID-19 is the official name for the Coronavirus and is mainly affecting people in China but has also reached further afield. The virus was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, and to date, more than 110,000 cases have been confirmed, with around 5,800 being classed as severe cases. At least 100 countries have been affected by the outbreak with the majority of sick people located in central China, South Korea, Italy, Iran, France, and Germany. The good news is that at least 62,000 people have recovered from the virus already, and the springtime is expected to discourage the spread of Corona. However, there are ways to prevent oneself from catching Corona or at least to take the right preventative steps not to catch it at all.

Washing Hands

Probably the best measure one can take to ward off the Coronavirus and keep it at bay is to wash their hands frequently and correctly. Try to use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when out and about, although washing with warm water and soap is the most vital. Washing hands thoroughly is considered to be the first and best line of defense when it comes to preventing the spread of Corona. If you have been out in public, especially if using public transport, wash your hands as soon as you arrive home and keep that hand sanitizer handy too!

washing hands

Cover Your Mouth

Another vital preventative step when it comes to staying away from the Coronavirus is to practice what’s known as “respiratory hygiene.” This means ensuring that you cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve or a tissue when you cough or sneeze. It’s also recommended to dispose of the tissue you used as soon as possible. It’s known that the Coronavirus spreads from the nose and mouth, and that’s why it’s so important not to share your germs with others and to stay away from people who are coughing and sneezing, just in case.

woman with face mask

Keep Your Distance

Even though most people are used to shaking hands when they meet and greet each other – whether a new introduction or an old friend – now’s the time to keep your hands to yourself as much as possible and to greet others with kind words only. One of the main ways the Coronavirus is spread is through physical contact between people, and that’s why it’s vital to avoid it. Keep your hands in your pockets and show people that aren’t being rude by not shaking hands (as you don’t want to offend anyone). Even if you usually kiss and hug your spouse or kids when you get home, try to avoid that until the crisis passes.

cross walk

Stop Touching! 

Since your hands touch surfaces that could be infected with Corona, you need to be extra careful where you put your digits. As the Coronavirus is spreading faster than expected, one measure suggested by WHO and local authorities is that people should stop touching their eyes, nose, and mouth as much as possible (and obviously within reason). The virus is primarily spread by saliva, and that’s why you should try to stop touching your face, picking your nose, or putting your fingers in your mouth as much as possible.

keep away hand gesture

Get Help

If you have taken all of the above precautions but still feel yourself coming down with cold-like symptoms or are running a temperature, there’s still probably no need for concern or alarm. As the seasons transition from winter to spring, it’s normal for people to get sick, usually with a common cold or perhaps a touch of flu. Unless you’ve come into contact with a person infected with Coronavirus, it’s unlikely you have it. If, on the other hand, you suspect you may have had some contact with Corona or are very sick or having trouble breathing, contact your doctor or local healthcare provider as soon as possible.

As far as the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey is concerned, around 50% of Americans don’t take enough Vitamin C and that’s a big issue. It leads to a variety of health issues among otherwise healthy people, including colds, loss of eyesight and even potential heart issues.

Ascorbic acid is another name for Vitamin C, and it’s a vital component when it comes to the growth and healthy development of tissue in the body. Vitamin C also works to repair broken tissue and has a host of other applications and uses. Vitamin C helps to absorb iron, to form collagen and to boost the immune system, as well as maintaining healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin C is also water-soluble, meaning it doesn’t get stored in the body, hence the need to take supplements (which come in a variety of different delivery methods.) We’re taking a look at the reasons why you make sure you’re taking Vitamin C regularly and in the right doses.

Keeps You Young

Getting old is a part of life as much as anything else. There’s little a person can do to slow down the aging process, although taking Vitamin C in the right dose can significantly help. Antioxidant properties in Vitamin C constantly work to keep oxidative stress in the body to a minimum and to keep cells healthy. Research has also shown that Vitamin C helps to retain a full head of hair and to keep it looking vibrant and healthy. It’s thought that one of the factors that contribute to hair loss is oxidative stress, which can damage cell structures, making hair look tired and old.

Fights Colds

We’re kicking off with the most popular reason why people supplement with Vitamin C; to stave off the common cold. It’s a well-established fact that Vitamin C helps to reduce the annoying symptoms of colds and to reduce how long they last and their intensity. Taking extra Vitamin C when you have a cold or are feeling under the weather isn’t just an old wives’ tale, it’s based on scientific reality. If a Vitamin C supplement isn’t handy, simply drink as much freshly squeezed orange juice as possible as it’s packed with the vitamins needed to get well. 

Boosts Immune System

The fact is that Vitamin C boosts the immune system, and that means it helps treat a range of issues. As well as having fantastic antioxidant properties, among other things, Vitamin C boosts white blood cells and helps to kill bacteria. In its battle against free radicals, Vitamin C literally saves lives if it’s taken regularly and adequately. When it comes to staying in optimal health, Vitamin C is a must and something that’s unfortunately overlooked by many people.

Keeps Hearts Healthy

When it comes to keeping the heart healthy, free radicals in the system are something to be avoided as much as possible. Numerous studies have shown that Vitamin C can assist the heart much in the same way as regular cardio exercise does. The body doesn’t produce Vitamin C by itself and needs to be taken from an external source. Fruits, vegetables and especially green leaves like spinach and kale contain high amounts of Vitamin C and can be eaten instead of supplements sold at the drugstore. Daily, you should be aiming to take around 75-90 mg of good quality Vitamin C to keep the heart healthy.

Good For Eyes

Another famous benefit of taking Vitamin C is that it’s known to help with eye health, especially for the elderly. Some scientific studies allege that Vitamin C lowers the chance of developing cataracts, mainly due to a depletion of Vitamin C in the eyes. The vitamin is also in conjunction with other nutrients to slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of blindness in the West. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron and supports blood vessels in the eye.

The post 5 Most Awe-Inspiring Surfing Spots For Beginners appeared first on Social Wallaby.

In the world of surfing, many factors determine the ideal spot. The waves, the scenery, and the location are to name a few, but some surfing spots are nothing short of awe-inspiring. When it comes to finding the best surfing spots in the world, especially if you’re a beginner, it can be hard to make the right choice.

Let’s start with some common sense and mention the fact that no matter how idyllic a surfing spot appears to be, safety comes first. Especially for beginner surfers, it’s essential to choose a place with a lifeguard station and what’s considered “safe surfing”. Any lifeguard worth their salt will then point you in the direction of the best waves and will also make a mental note of where you’re headed. Look for some black and white flags, and you’ll be in the right direction. Surfers, and especially beginners, are best advised to head towards waist-high waves and ensure the winds aren’t too strong. There are fantastic surfing destinations all around the world, and when it comes to choosing one, it really comes down to personal taste. With that said, we’ve hand-picked five of the most awe-inspiring surfing destinations to save you the time.

Kuta Beach, Bali

Bali has long been a popular tourist destination due to its natural beauty, white-sandy beaches, and warm hospitality. One of the most iconic surfer destinations in Bali is Kuta Beach. This beach is ideal at low-tide for beginners. There’s also a great swell, meaning good consistency when it comes to good waves for surfing lessons. Before long and with a little practice under your belt, you can head over to the nearby Kuta Reef and watch the professionals at work.

Kuta Beach

Jaco Beach, Costa Rica

Many surfers from North America choose Costa Rica as their go-to destination. It’s cheap, not to many hours away from home and has some of the best surf in the world. Jaco Beach is another excellent destination for surfers at the novice level, mainly down to the beach-break waves there. Near to Jaco is Playa Hermosa, which is a world-renowned spot for professional surfers. If you can manage and beat the waves at Jaco, you’re all set to face bigger waves, which can be found a little further down the coast.

Jaco Beach, Costa Rica

Tibau do Sul, Brazil

Brazil has always been famous for its pristine beaches and idyllic vacation spots. The surf in some places in Brazil is also nothing short of inspiring, and that’s one reason why some spots have a cult-like following. Tibau do Sul is one such popular area worth visiting between December and March. Surfers who visit beaches like La Boy benefit from swells from the north, east, and south-east, and there are perfect locations for beginners, intermediate and advanced surfers alike. 

Tibau do Sul, Brazil

Byron Bay, Australia

Perhaps one of the most famous surfing destinations in the Southern Hemisphere, Byron Bay, is a location thoroughly enjoyed and even cherished by many.  Located on the east coast of Australia, the scene is equally about cold beer and fantastic beach food as it is about surfing. One of the best-known areas in Byron Bay is The Pass. This right-hand point-break wave can hold a surfer for a whole minute and is best approached with a longboard. Byron Bay is perfect for beginners and professional surfers, and just about everyone in between.

Byron Bay,Australia

Lanzarote, Canary Islands

For Europeans who want to keep their surf local, Lanzarote in the Canary Islands is famous for some excellent reasons. The island boasts no less than thirty surfing spots, and that means there’s something for everyone in Lanzarote. Arietta is a fantastic first spot as it has right and left breaks over a sandbar. Moving down the coast and El Muelle is an area well worth looking into. It is a spot more suitable for intermediate and advanced surfers, but a lot depends on the season, the weather and the waves of the day.

There’s no shame in being a tidy and well-groomed man. There’s even a name for it, as men who go that extra mile to take care of their appearance are commonly referred to as ‘Metrosexual’. Men have an easier time of things when it comes to grooming than the fairer of the species, but many are undereducated about the finer details of male grooming.

The first point to make is that you don’t need to spend a fortune on grooming products. There’s no need to, as long as you know what you need in your repertoire and what you don’t. Commercials are packed full when it comes to beauty products for women but not so much for male grooming. The good news is that many men can look their best without breaking the bank and with minimal effort. Following a few basic rules is the key to grooming success, as well as having a correctly stocked bathroom cabinet. These five top grooming tips for men are an excellent start for those new to the endeavor, and even for those who are old hat.

Go All the Way

For whatever reasons, in the era in which we live, shaved heads are fashionable, and bald men are apparently more attractive to women (and other men) than ever before. As we enter 2020, some men are tired of fretting over their baldness and have decided instead to embrace it. Instead of overthinking it and spending a fortune at the barbershop, some guys shave their faces in the morning and then their heads. Various surveys have found that more and more women prefer a man with a shaved head, although there will always be those who like their man to have a full head of hair. However, if a bald head suits you, it’s a great way to live minimally and efficiently and will save big bucks, especially in the long run. 

Skincare Regime

Taking care of skin isn’t just something for girls. Men need to make sure they choose the right regime and the correct products for them, without spending a small fortune. Skincare includes face, body, hands, and feet and is something worth being disciplined about even if it’s new and a little out of your comfort zone. Using a face scrub once a week is a great way to keep skin looking young and feeling great. Use a simple, fragrance-free hand cream daily, and don’t forget about your feet. Obviously, well-groomed finger and toenails are part and parcel and time should be dedicated regularly to ensure you’re at your best.

Shiny Whites

One of the most important things when it comes to male grooming is teeth. Yellow or decayed teeth, not to mention smelly breath, is a huge turn off for most women and an even bigger red flag. The first, and possibly most important tip for today is to make sure your teeth are looking good. One suggestion is to invest in a good quality electric toothbrush to make you shine when you need it most. According to research, electric brushes that rotate can remove up to 11 percent more plaque than manual brushing and can reduce gum disease too. A hearty swig of a strong antiseptic mouthwash is also a good idea and will keep your breath smelling fresh all day.

Scent of a Man

Getting your aftershave or cologne just right is an art that takes some men many years (or even decades) to master. While aftershave isn’t cheap, there are also so many to choose from that it can become confusing. There are also some rules to follow to ensure you keep on the right side of the very fine line between smelling great and smelling like your grandad. You don’t want to choose an overpowering scent, but you do want to opt for a smell that lasts and remains with you all day. There’s a certain amount of trial and error when it comes to finding the right scent for you. However, we recommend you start with something musky and manly and try to avoid “unisex” fragrances that are increasingly popular these days.

To Beard or Not to Beard? 

Beards are a controversial topic for many people, and that includes both men and women. Interestingly, until just around 100 years ago, most men around the world word beards. Beards have always been considered manly, and despite being itchy (and sometimes unhygienic), facial hair is usually a big hit with the ladies. Beards are trendy and cool, and there’s no denying that. If you look good with a beard and decide to grow one out, make sure you regularly trim as few things look worse than an unkempt beard. You’ll need to either invest in a good quality beard trimmer or to make sure you visit your barber regularly for that all-important trim.
