    Some statistics show that 1-2% of adults between the ages of 20 and 50 are swingers. So, the next time you are at work, at the mall, or walking around town, know that there is probably another swinging couple around you. The challenge is to know who they are. Swingers are short, tall, black, white, thin, and full-figured. Remaining open to a wide variety of choices is the key to getting the most out of the swinger lifestyle.

    With the broad diversity of swingers, the common ground shared by most is that they are committed couples. Successful swinging couples are able to differentiate between sex and love. They understand that an interest for sexual variety does not imply a lack of love for their partner. The swinger lifestyle provides a venue to explore fantasies not typically attainable in a traditional relationship.

    In the lifestyle, women are free to explore their inner most desires with full support of their partner. Swinging is not cheating or having an affair. Swinging is about pursuing your sexual desires with other people while remaining committed as a couple.

    So, if you do not have a partner, how can singles get into swinging? The good news is that single women have many options to join the lifestyle. Single females are highly sought after. Swinging couples will seek you out and single males are always looking for a partner. Guys are in plentiful supply. This is great for couples looking for another male to join in a threesome as they can afford to be very choosey. Men can enjoy the lifestyle, but they will need to put forth extra effort to be selected.

    For men who treat swinging couples and single ladies with respect, they too can enjoy the lifestyle. First understand that in the swinger lifestyle, men are like desserts on a table- only the tastiest ones get selected. That means you need establish a good reputation. If invited for drinks or dinner, get the tab. If you are fortunate to be invited to their home, don’t come empty handed. Offer to bring something or surprise them with a nice bottle of wine. If you are meeting in a hotel, make the reservation and take care of the room charges. Lastly, men, always dress to impress.

    If swingers can be almost anyone, how do you find them? Prior to the internet, one had to advertise in limited swinger publications and it was difficult making connections. Today, there are many websites catering to the swinger lifestyle. When choosing a site, select one that supports the entire lifestyle, not just swinger ads. Look for sites that include Interest Groups, forums, profiles, email, instant messaging, parties and events, swinger club directories, swinger stories, and blogs so you can fully explore your sexuality with swinging couples.

    Every social practice that goes beyond the norms of the society faces problems. Swinging is such a social practice. It is a sexually liberated lifestyle where people swing after consent. There’s no cheating or betrayal involved. Couples enjoy the swinging lifestyle after striking a balance between swinging and their personal relationships.

    It is said that every coin has two faces – one negative and the other is positive. Similarly, swinging lifestyle has some merits as well as demerits. A successful swinger is the one who can rule out his/her shortcomings and take most out of the lifestyle. The experience can be gratifying is you take the practice sportingly and avoid the restrictions posed by the society.

    The swinging lifestyle has several opportunities and facilities. You can socialize with like-minded individuals. They’ll understand your desires and support your viewpoint. You can become friends and satisfy each other sexual libido. The swingers don’t attach any strings. They practice the lifestyle as an adventurous activity rather than an opportunity to find love.

    The lifestyle gives you an open environment to experiment with your sexual orientation. You can learn about your sexual preferences. Some swingers experiment with different sexual activities. Some love couple swapping while some enjoy group sex. You might also come across people who get to face the homosexual side of their personality.

    However, some inexperienced swingers face issues like jealousy and possessiveness. Sometimes, the feeling of sexual relationship between your spouse and swinger mate creep up feelings that lead to emotional distress. Over-extended arguments or conflicts lead to breaking of relations. Moreover, alienation from everyday social activities is a common threat among people in the swinging lifestyle.

    Once, an individual rules out these shortcomings, he/she can enjoy the lifestyle to the hilt. Hence, the overall experience acts as refreshing change to meet the sexual demands of an individual and socialize with like-minded individuals.

    The warm weather of summertime is rejuvenating and pleasant, and the warm weather brings thoughts of changing lifestyle for the season. Working in the yard mowing grass, planting flowers, tending a vegetable garden, outdoor cooking, and playing in the pool suddenly become favorite pastimes. During the warm, summer weather, many times a dip in the pool turns into an afternoon event. A part of summer living is decorating an indoor or outdoor living space with beautiful, relaxing furniture for the summer season. Depending on personal taste, there are furniture choices in metal, wicker and rattan as well as teak and others.

    Stylish, summertime furniture for the indoor and outdoor living space is available in many unique materials from wrought iron to teakwood. Cast aluminum and wrought iron furniture are both stylish and sturdy choices, and the metal construction can withstand rough wear and extreme weather. Cast aluminum and wrought iron are great for outdoor spaces, and the metal designs range from simple patterns to ornate works of art.

    These outdoor furniture choices are maintenance free, and for a splash of color, tie pillows to the metal chairs and lounges for added beauty and comfort. Rattan and wicker summer furniture are popular choices for the pool, deck, patio, and sunroom.

    These all-weather furniture pieces are stylish with exquisite designs, and the rattan, garden-style construction is a great choice for open or closed sunroom areas.

    These natural furniture choices blend with the outdoor beauty and are sturdy enough to withstand the hot sun and other extreme weather conditions. Change the look of both rattan furniture and also wicker furniture with a variety of colorful pillows that add comfort and a unique style to any setting.

    The tropical feeling of teakwood furniture offers a relaxed atmosphere, which is wonderful for summertime living. Teak furniture is solid wood with a smooth finish, and many teak owners add a splash of color to the wood pieces using bright pillows and umbrellas.

    Furnishings for summer style include everything from end tables to sofas. Outdoor and indoor living spaces are changed for the season with white paint, natural fabrics and unique materials to complement the surrounding living space. Design a complete room with chairs, sofas, coffee tables, and lamps, or design an outdoor patio and pool area with a set of table and chairs as well as lounges for relaxing by the pool.

    Because there are so many summertime furniture choices for designing an indoor or outdoor living space, it is a good idea to determine in advance entertainment and living needs. An enclosed garden room requires different furniture choices than a poolside atmosphere. By taking the time to make the right furniture choices, you will express the summertime season in exquisite style.

    Pros and Cons of a Healthy Lifestyle
    by David Junno Psy.D.

    Word count: 512

    ————————————–
    Deciding to change your lifestyle.
    ————————————–
    Once we recognized we have a problem, the temptation is to want
    to make a change immediately. This, however, is rarely a good
    idea. The reason is that for our attempts to be successful we
    need to be absolutely sure we are willing to make the changes
    necessary.

    For example, if we discover that we have high cholesterol, we
    might want to immediately start dieting and doing more exercise.
    However, this can lead to problems. If we have not made a firm
    decision to make the necessary changes, then when we encounter
    obstacles, (which there will be many of), we will not have the
    commitment to overcome them. We then might define our inability
    to overcome the obstacles as a failure on our part. This is
    likely to lead to the belief that we cannot make the necessary
    changes, and we give up trying.

    To avoid this problem we need to focus on making a decision to
    change, rather than just reacting to bad news. One of the best
    ways to do this is to focus on the pros and cons of making
    changes.

    ———————————————-
    The Pros and Cons of Changing
    ———————————————-

    Take a piece of paper and write on the top what you want to
    change, for example: exercising more, or eating less saturated
    fat. Then make two columns on the paper and title one of them,
    pros and the other one, cons. Under pros, write down all the
    good reasons for making your change. For example under exercise
    you might say, get into better shape, or have more stamina.
    Under eating less saturated fat, you might write: lose weight.

    Under the Cons, write all the reasons for not making these
    changes. For example under exercise you might say, “I don’t
    feel I have the time”, or “I don’t like exercising”. Or for
    eating less saturated fat you might say, “I would have to
    give up my favorite foods”, or “It will require a lot of
    changes in my meal preparation”. According to Prochaska,
    Norcross and DiClemete in their book, “Changing for Good”,
    for a change to be successful the pros have to outweigh the
    cons.

    Are your pros more than your cons? If so, go ahead and start
    preparing to change. If your pros are not more than your
    cons, do not despair. This just means you need to focus your
    efforts on looking for more of the pros, and coming up with
    responses to the cons that will decrease their influence on
    you. Being aware of the cons of making a change is very
    important, as they tell you what you need to prepare for.
    Being prepared for the obstacles before you encounter them
    will improve your chances of success.

    Catwalk, this term itself represents something glamorous involving many people to make an event magnificent. Fashion shows are the places that demands catwalk. The world’s longest catwalk is always on hits in London. The world’s longest catwalk was held recently some 4 months ago. To be precise it was the month of September. This was considered to be the longest catwalk ever that has launched to commemorate the London Fashion week initiation. The catwalk is a relay created by House of Fraser that was held from Land’s End to John O’ Groats. This show expects the models to begin their walk on a fine Monday and predicted to walk for a total of 382 hours.

    The world’s longest catwalk refers to the walking hours and in this they had to pass the baton in particular places such as outside Natural History Museum and Venue of the fashion week of London. The London Fashion week is hype and the model Lisa Omand’s work includes the campaign walked in the Sunday Times Style and Elle. The approaching end of this way of walking is given a fashionable touch. The models pass the baton to another glamour waiting and the model Lisa Onysko graced the Faberge catwalks by continuing walking towards John O’Groats. This catwalk is a combination of volunteers, models and house of Fraser staff. This catwalk pursues through the night and is not expected to stop for snow or rain and this is the beauty of this world’s longest catwalk. This catwalk is done on different routes taking to some of the prominent places such as landmarks namely, Stone Hedge, Edinburgh castle and the Angel of the North. All these places are taken for catwalk to give a taste of the glamour.

    It is unfortunate that many of today’s disease result from poor lifestyle choices. It is a known fact that diabetes mellitus 2, heart diseases, certain types of cancer, asthma, osteoarthritis and sleep apnea are caused by obesity. It has been labeled by several studies as “one of the leading preventable causes of death worldwide.”

    The sad case is that obesity is preventable. If it’s not genetically caused, it is the result of poor diet and lack of exercise. Both are clearly lifestyle choices. Indeed, just how much hype is there about healthy eating and getting active, but still studies indicate disturbing statistics: between 110,000-350,000 deaths in the United States are attributed to obesity every year, and a staggering 1 million deaths in Europe are blamed on it. To be blunt, those whose excess weight are not hereditary or caused by endocrine disorders or mental illnesses, are choosing slow and painful deaths. This perception is rather scary because then you would look at obesity mortality rates as conscious choices to end one’s life.

    OTHER CAUSES OF OBESITY: Medications, endocrine disorders and psychiatric illness.

    When is a person is considered obese? The Body Mass Index (BMI) is the measurement used to determine if a person is overweight. This uses the following formula: BMI = mass (kg) / height (m)2 or mass (lb) / height (in) )2 x 703. According to the World Health Organization, those with a BMI between 25- 29.9 are overweight; 30-34.9 BMI, class I obesity; 35-39.9 BMI, class II obesity and 40 BMI, class III obesity. Meanwhile, those with a BMI of 18.5 and less are considered underweight. Those with BMI between 18.5-24.9 are considered to have normal weight.

    Being overweight does not happen overnight. A person does not go to bed weighing 110 lbs and wakes up weighing 200 lbs the following day. It is a systematic process, deliberately or not, of choosing all the wrong foods and leading a sedentary lifestyle. However, that is the keyword: choice. People need to make smart choices about what and how they eat. We need to find time in our busy schedules to get some cardio activity (one that’s enjoyable for us) going. We need to make the decision to live well and healthy lifestyles. Apparently this decision-making process starts in the mind, which means once we have made our choices we must be strong-willed to carry it through.

    This does not mean that you have to stop eating cakes and candies altogether, or you eliminate rice and potatoes from your diet. It does not mean training hard every day for the 10K marathon. By deciding on a healthy lifestyle, we also strive for balance. Life would be boring if there is no balance. In the same breath that the world would be in chaos if there is no balance of power.
