Tv in your bedroom?

11:44 PM that's me 0 Comments

More than two hours of TV a day adds significantly to Adults and children’s waist size, American Journal of Preventive Medicine reports
Amanda Staiano, PhD. “A bedroom TV may create additional disruptions to healthy habits, above and beyond regular TV viewing. For instance, having a bedroom TV is related to lower amounts of sleep and lower prevalence of regular family meals, independent of total TV viewing time. Both short sleep duration and lack of regular family meals have been related to weight gain and obesity.”

How Does TV Watching Increase the Risk of Obesity? A Closer Look at Food Marketing

 TV watching could promote obesity in several ways: displacing time for physical activity; promoting poor diets; giving more opportunities for unhealthy snacking (during TV viewing); and even by interfering with sleep.

 The thousands of food-related TV ads that children and youth see each year are primarily for high-calorie, low-nutrient foods and drinks, according to a comprehensive review of the evidence by the Institute of Medicine (IOM). 

 Food marketing influences children’s food preferences and purchase requests, and marketers rely on this “pester power” to influence what parents buy.

  • Branded foods, drinks, and restaurants are often featured in TV shows and movies (the ad industry term for this is “product placement”), and these product placements are overwhelmingly for unhealthy foods. An analysis of food brands that appeared in prime-time television programming in 2008 found that children and teens saw roughly one food brand per day, and three out of four of these brand appearances were for sugary soft drinks

  The average American child from age 8 to 18 watches about 4.5 hours of TV each day. Seventy percent have a TV in the bedroom and about one-third of youth aged 6-19 is considered obese.


“The established association between TV and obesity is predominantly based on BMI. The association between TV and fat mass, adiposity stored in specific depots (including abdominal subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissue), and cardiometabolic risk, is less well understood,”

What can we do?

 Limit TV and “Sit Time,” Increase “Fit Time” to Prevent Obesity

 Parents can limit children’s screen time to no more than two hours per day, and a TV or computer “allowance” device may help with setting limits. The American Academy of Pediatrics also recommends no screen time for children under the age of 2.

  • Making  bedrooms TV-free and Internet-free—by removing TV sets or connections, or not putting them there in the first place—can also help us to stay within the two-hour limit, as can turning off the TV during meals.
  • Schools, child care centers, and after-school programs can have policies that limit recreational screen time, and are also excellent venues for rolling out screen time reduction programs,such as Planet Health  and Eat Well and Keep Moving. 
  • Healthcare providers can counsel parents to limit their children’s screen time and to become advocates for stricter regulations on TV/media food and beverage advertising to children.
  •  Staying active helps with weight control, as does limiting sedentary activities—recreational computer time, driving, and the like. So a good strategy is to replace “sit time” with “fit time”
 -I read once that if you really want to "REST" you should not have a TV in your bedroom, I've been refuse to put  a TV in our bedroom since we moved to our new home, Since the TV is in the living room, husband and kids must to turn it off and go to the bed to really "REST",I grew up with the TV, my parents are Fanatics of watching TV Series and all kind of news programs, etc, and we could spent all day just watching TV (and eating) which give us not so much social live so I know what it is, I really appreciate the TV out of any bedroom and same case for our children's toys, that is the rule, no TV no Toys in my bedroom so I can really enjoy and Rest. What about you?

Wedding and party deco Ideas,DIY glitter glam centerpieces

1:01 AM that's me 0 Comments

By Lune Events
 This project would be perfect for a  wedding, or any party where serious glamor is on the menu!
Essentials:
  • An assortment of glass vases of varying sizes – hello thrift stores!
  • Glitter
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Clear Spray Paint
  • Gold (insert color preference here) Spray Paint
  • Newspaper
  • Rubber Gloves
Step 1: Prep glassware by giving them a good wash and dry. Lay out newspaper and put on rubber gloves.

 Step 2: Spray the inside of the vase with Gold Spray Paint. Don’t hold the nozzle too close, or else you’ll get big drip lines. If you’re okay with that, then go for it! Give it a few minutes to dry.


Step 3: Spray the outside with Spray Adhesive, giving it a good coating.


Step 4: Coat the outside with glitter – we recommend doing this by hand, rather than rolling the case in a pile of glitter. If you need to re-spray areas with adhesive and add more glitter that’s okay.
Step 5: Spray glittered surface with clear Spray Paint – this helps keep all the glitter on the vase, and not in every nook and cranny of your life. Let dry for a few minutes.
Step 6: Fill with flowers, candles, branches or any other festive thing you can dream up!

The new Color of the year 2013

11:39 PM that's me 0 Comments

2012 was the Tangerine color year, this 2013 is a "Green" color year.

 Introducing Pantone Color of the Year 2013  Emerald Green. We will see it in all products you can't imagine among other pretty colors that  "Fashion designers" have prepared for us.

“It is such a great universal shade that works on many different people, in many different ways,” says glo minerals makeup artist Kate McCarthy. “Emerald really looks best on anyone. It’s the type of color that reads beautifully on both warm and cool undertones. If you are on the cooler side, look for greens with a blue undertone. If you are on the warm side, look for emeralds with more of a yellow/golden undertone.”

“It will look good on everyone,” says celebrity makeup artist Lusine Galadjian. “But you need to use it strategically on different types of skin, eye and hair color.” If you have light skin and blue or green eyes, use it as a liner. For brown eyes, go for a smoky eye look. And for medium or dark skin, use the color in a smoky eye and dab it on the inner corners of the eye to make them pop.
