So exactly how do you keep your man happy?

 How to keep a man happy? Well the average woman will probably have a million responses. I can hear some of you now saying there is no exact way to keep a man happy because all men are not the same. I hear you, but ladies what I want you to know is that there are some basic steps that you can follow. If you can manage to follow some of these basic guidelines, then you can keep your man happy!

Men, no matter how different they are, are pretty simple when it comes to just a few things. Women however tend to be a bit more complex when it comes to satisfying our wants. Of course not all women are the same but then again this article isn’t about the ladies right?! So we won’t go in depth on that topic.

Let me add that the tips that I am about to break down for you will only be beneficial for the guy who is for you. I’m sure every woman has learned over the years that you can be everything to the wrong man. It doesn’t mean that would you did was wrong. It just means you did it with the wrong guy. There are some men out there that you can hit back bends for and swing from a chandelier and he will still leave you. That’s part of life.

Yet if you have a really good man who loves you and all you do is create an uncomfortable living space for him, then Houston we have a problem!

The first issue that every woman tends to do at one point or another is NAGG!

Now sure we all end up nagging for some reason or another but men don’t like it! You will find him escaping the roar of the dragon everyday if he has to. He’ll go hang out with his friends more, or just disappear to avoid all of the nagging. To be honest it may even remind him of being a child who is getting fussed at. He’s a grown man, so he will definitely get away from you to keep his man hood alive. There is a way to get your point across to your man without nagging. Men are simple but not dumb. If you tell him what the issue is then give him the space to fix the problem. When you nag daily about it, you might as well push him out the door of your life. Be his peace of mind!

 

The next issue that we as ladies don’t do enough of is SUPPORT HIM!

How often do we carry long conversations to him about all of our problems and the things we want?! We never take the time to see about his needs. We never ask him what is bothering him. Ladies you have to be concerned about your man. Find out how his day was and if he is dealing with anything. Be that pillow that he can lay his head on and vent to. There are times that we can be a bit selfish of his needs. You have to remember that he is still human. If he feels he can’t talk to you and get that support, he’ll find someone else to vent to.

Lastly ladies, stop expecting him to be someone he is not. Stop comparing him to your past relations. Stop trying to CHANGE HIM!

Most of you listen to your friend girls and take all of the wrong advice on trying to train a man to be something he is not. Now by all means you should push your man to be the best he can be, but don’t try to do a make-over stunt. You all remember the woman from the movie, “Two Can Play That Game” who fixed Bobby Brown’s teeth right? He started tripping on her. Let that man be all that he inspires to be for you without you trying to follow some rule book. A good man who loves you, will change for you by himself. He has been living with himself all his life so if he knows he has flaws that could affect your relation, he will happily work on them. If he doesn’t change to better the relationship then honey he just isn’t the one for you.

 

These are just a few tips towards keeping your man happy. Of course I could have added so much more but that will be saved for another topic. Now go home today and work on these three things, and see if you can make 2017 better than your past years!

Yoga For Anxiety: 6 Poses To Reduce Stress And Support Mental Health

Yoga

Yoga can be the most efficient way to relieve the body and mind of stress. Studies show that roughly 40 million U.S. adults suffer from anxiety. That makes stress & anxiety one of the most common mental illnesses in the country. But even those who haven’t been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder aren’t immune to experiencing stress, tension and anxiety in their everyday lives.

Practicing yoga can not only be an effective stress reliever, but also a way to ease symptoms of anxiety and depression. Yoga helps by transferring the focus and attention to the body and  breath. 

“Yoga helps our entire system slow down,” ViraYoga founder Elena Brower tells the Huffington Post. “Our bodies are programmed to heal naturally, and what stops that healing are all the stressors of daily life. Yoga dissolves those stressors for the time during practice and usually the effects last for hours after.”

Below are Six Easy Yoga Poses that can help you relieve daily stress!

Yoga Pose: Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana)

 1. Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana)

Forward bends are excellent for calming our nervous system, according to Brower. The posture provides a release of the upper body and soothes the mind through gentle inversion either when practiced on its own or between poses.

 2. Legs Up The Wall Pose (Viparita Karani)

The Legs up the Wall pose is a simple but effective anxiety-busting posture for beginners that can help you to escape the “thinking mind.”

You don’t have to be so flexible or so strong, and yet it’s very relaxing and very calming for the nervous system.

3. Half Moon Pose (Ardha Chandrasana)

To quiet the mind and cultivate focused awareness, try the Half Moon Pose, a balancing posture with one leg raised 90 degrees and one hand on the floor or on a block.

“Balancing poses take our attention off of the mind and into the body,” Brower says.

  1. Tree Pose (Vrksasana)

Before moving on to the Eagle and Half Moon balancing poses, beginners should start with Tree Pose, a basic standing balance to help calm a racing mind and induce concentration.

 Balancing poses force you to be honest about where you are currently, and they force you to pay attention to where you are. If you’re in a tree pose and your mind is wandering, you’ll know it because you’ll fall over.

Yoga Pose: Child’s Pose (Balasana)

 5. Child’s Pose (Balasana)

 This is one of the best resting poses of any yoga practice. Child’s Pose basically involves sitting on the knees and bending forward with arms forward or by your side. It can be very comforting and self-soothing. This is one of my favorite poses because we all just need to slump over and relax at times.

Is useful at relieving discomfort in the muscles of the back, neck and abdomen. Furthermore, a little time spent in cobra pose can go a long way towards alleviating stress, anxiety and even depression.
