Melatonin’s Advantages

I am the judgment broker, and I like to write about all subjects. Most folks have heard about the supplement Melatonin; yet few know the full benefits and how to use Melatonin correctly. For most folks, the right time to take Melatonin is approximately three to four hours prior to trying to sleep. For the majority of folks, using it right before you go to sleep does not work.

Because Melatonin is automatically created inside our bodies naturally, and can be found in some common foods, it’s (for most folks) a lot safer than any other kind of sleep-inducing pill. Melatonin is also made by both everyone’s “guts” (gastrointestinal (GI) tract) and pineal glands. For me, Melatonin to be the only sleeping pill I need. Certain foods contain melatonin; including red tart cherries, wine, bananas, tomatoes, and ginger.

Melatonin is very often the most useful for older folks, because our bodies make a bunch of it when we are young and most of us usually make less Melatonin as we age. Generally, the older one is, the more you will get good results with Melatonin.

In addition to helping you get to sleep, Melatonin may be good for your stomach, and might help some people with stomach-related problems such as GERD (acid reflux disease), and some other stomach-related issues, including some kinds of harmful bacteria infections.

Some ulcers are caused by a bacteria called H.pylori, and using melatonin may help eliminate that bacteria. The major action of Melatonin seems to occur indirectly, via our brain-gut axis. Some studies have shown that melatonin can prevent colitis, ulcers, irritable bowel disease, and even colon cancer.

Even though Melatonin might help your stomach, the majority of folks should use Melatonin to sleep well. Try it early in the night rather than some other sleep inducing pill(s).

Although certain folks benefit from it from as little as 0.3 milligrams of Melatonin; the majority of people find that 3-6 milligrams works best. Certain melatonin products are designed to be dissolved under your tongue, and some come in the form of a liquid. Certain sellers add in other vitamins and compounds with their melatonin products; which might increase the odds to sleep well. Ironically, taking too much Melatonin may cause insomnia. Moderation in all things is usually the best policy. Too much might make you groggy the next day. Be sure to ask your doctor if you are taking any other medications.

In addition to Melatonin, for the best chance for sleep is to try to eliminate all lights from your bedroom and sleep in total darkness and avoid stress. Note that lamps that shine a yellow light, like Himalayan salt lamps, don’t appear to interfere with sleep. I keep a compact lamp handy, if I need to visit the bathroom during the evening.

Melatonin may also fight cancer and help folks boost their immune systems. If one takes Melatonin when the sun sets, you will most likely appreciate its ability to relax you and then help you sleep.

Recognizing Strengths

“Never apologize for talent. Talent is a gift!” – Madame Morrible, Wicked 

In the Broadway hit Wicked, Madame Morrible, the professor who becomes a mentor to both of the heroines, comments that one of her many talents is discovering and encouraging talent. While this line always elicits a chuckle from the audience, there is truth in what she says – namely, that not everyone has the ability to spot talent either in themselves or in others. Seeing and encouraging the strengths of others inspires confidence while also fostering understanding. After all, there are many ways to attain the same goal. Just because a colleague, friend, or relative chooses an approach different from your own doesn’t mean they lack understanding – chances are, their strengths are merely different from your own.  

So how can you look for strengths in yourself and others? Here are a few ideas:

  • Promotion or prevention? Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson breaks down motivating factors into two categories: promotion and prevention. She says that people are either positively motivated by the desire to excel, or they are motivated to avoid negative consequences like losing what they’ve worked to attain. A promotion individual seeks to maximize gains and avoid missed opportunities; a prevention individual seeks to minimize losses. One isn’t better than the other – in fact, each brings its own values to any organization, and the two are needed to balance each other out. Better understanding what motivates you and others will help foster understanding and perspective, especially when working with people motivated by the other end of the spectrum.
  • Look at hearts – not just smarts. Often when people are highly gifted in one area, they are also deficient in another, like a talented artist who struggles in academics or a highly organized, hard-working individual who has a hard time connecting emotionally with others. Rather than focusing on what’s lacking, it’s important to look deeper and to find what strengths are there. You can’t teach talent or ambition. Everyone has talents and strengths – sometimes it’s just a matter of taking the time to seek them out.
  • Appreciate instinctive skills. An instinctive skill is a skill or action that an individual does or takes without any preparation or training – and which can be executed successfully upon repetition. Often these skills have more to do with overall talent than with the specific skill itself, like a natural athlete having the quick reflexes and spatial understanding to excel at a sport he or she has never played before. What comes naturally to you? Any skill can be honed and strengthened with practice and training, but having that natural ability to begin with makes it an easier journey on the road to success.

LEARNING YOUR LEADERSHIP STYLE

Have you ever encountered a boss whose approach to power and leadership baffled you? 

According to Harvard Business Review, one’s instincts where power is concerned – both giving and receiving it – stem from conditioning in one’s life since childhood, particularly within the family unit. In researching power styles, author Maggie Craddock observed that “the building blocks of anyone’s signature power style are rooted in the ways they have been conditioned to respond emotionally and behaviorally to the first authority figures they encountered in life, namely, their caregivers.” 

In other words, those whose caregivers asked for the child’s opinion in making family decisions are likely to be adults who appreciate when colleagues take time to connect and build a trust-based relationship. Conversely, those raised by authoritarian caregivers usually build their power relationships based in fear, which can lead to disliking consensus building and preferring independent leadership.  

Most people’s power styles are a blend of the following four profiles, according to Craddock. Where do you fit into the mix?  

  • The Pleaser – These are the folks who, lacking the attention they craved early in life, are hardwired to care for others. They hunger for validation and connect with others at a personal level as a means of gaining power.
  • The Charmer – As a child, these individuals often had to care for a parent’s emotional needs. Consequently, these individuals have little respect for formal authority and may resort to manipulating others to get their needs met. Charmers have an intense focus that both intimidates and seduces others into compliance.
  • The Commander – Sports, religion, military, or any larger system that reinforces discipline or a strict code of conduct has often featured strongly in the family of a Commander. Accustomed to that active scope of thinking, Commanders tend to foster a sense of urgency as they focus on results.
  • The Inspirer – Self-expression is more important than conformity in the families of Inspirers. These innovative thinkers operate with a consistent commitment to the greater good, an example set by parents who made sacrifices to achieve excellence.

 
Remember, no power style is inherently good or bad – each has its share of strengths and challenges. Recognizing how you react to power will help you to react accordingly, strengthening the advantages while minimizing the drawbacks.

Content Management & Multi-blogging with WordPress

WordPress is an excellent example of an open source Content Management System (CMS). Powered by MySQL and PHP, WordPress is often installed to be used as a blog publishing application. Two of its most popular features are a template system and a plug-in architecture. 

The first version of WordPress hit the streets on May 27, 2003. It was released by Matt Mullenweg as a fork of b2/cafelog. Mullenweg’s idea took off almost immediately and today a whopping 13 percent of the 1,000,000 largest websites are using WordPress. Within 60 days of version 3.0’s release, it had been downloaded 12.5 million times. 

The importance of version 3.0 was the merging of WordPress with WordPress Multi-user (WPMU) which allows multiple blogs to exist within a single installation. Administration of the multiple blogs is controlled by a centralized maintainer. This means multiple concurrent copies of WordPress 3.0 may be run from different directories if they are configured to use separate database tables. 

WPMU adds eight new data tables for each blog. Using WPMU makes it possible for website owners to host their own blogging communities. Webmasters can then moderate and control their blogs from a single dashboard.

Healthy Practices That Assist Slow Down Aging of Your Skin

By Margery Housley

We all want skin that remains youthful for as long as possible. That’s why you can find so many anti aging tips all over the Internet and in many books and magazines as well. Whereas some of these can be operative, you also need to remember your beliefs, markedly when someone is attempting to sell you something. What follows is some matter-of-fact and helpful anti-aging advice that anyone can apply for keeping their skin young and healthy looking.

We’ve all heard by now that too much exposure to the sun can be harmful. For the skin in particular, this is spot on, especially with the high number of people that are apprehensive toward skin cancer. Nevertheless, the fact remains that we still need a certain amount of sunlight, since it’s a significant source of Vitamin D. The answer is to limit the amount of time you spend in the sun, instead of overdoing it. A limited amount of sun, while using the appropriate protection, is good for you. If you lie under the sun for hours on end, though, you won’t just be setting yourself up to be sunburned, it will also dry out your skin really quickly. For that reason, like many other things, the answer here is to use your rationale and get a limited amount of sun rays.

Exercise is always pointed out as a great way to maintain a healthy body and a great aid for losing a few pounds. When you exercise you are giving your skin a healthy boost. The more active you are, the healthier your skin and complete body will be as a result. Vigorous exercise that makes us sweat has a detoxifying effect on the skin. Another good way to be healthy is to take frequent walks or do an outside project to get some fresh air. A sedentary lifestyle is not only likely to make you overweight, it will tend to make your skin age faster too.

One particular approach has to do with facial masks, and this is something you can do at home. We recommend you know your skin type so you do not use something that may aggravate it. You can, of course, get facial masks done for you at spas; however, it’s also a good idea to learn how to make them yourself for those times you can’t get to a spa. A lot of people make facials from vegetables and other foods, but just find out and go with what you can do.

If you want to begin taking better care of your skin, then you are in luck due to the available knowledge. Your general lifestyle is very important and will have a noticeable effect in time. Being proactive about your skin quality is not vanity but really all about healthy living. We have given you some awesome anti aging skin care tips, and we hope you take action on them.
