Chad Love: Florida Python Cast & Blast

By Chad Love

Much has been written about south Florida’s problems with non-native giant snakes, but according to this story officials are now faced with the frightening prospect of hybrid "super snakes" slithering amok.

Fears of a new "super snake" emerging in the Everglades grew this week during a hunt to track South Florida’s invasive python population. A three-day, state-coordinated hunt that started Tuesday had, by Wednesday, turned up at least five African rock pythons — including a 14-foot-long female — in a targeted area in Miami-Dade County. Those findings add to concerns that the African rock python is a new breeding population in the Everglades and not just the result of a few overgrown pets being released into the wild, according to the South Florida Water Management District.

In addition, state environmental officials worry that the rock python could breed with the Burmese python, which already has an established foothold in the Everglades. That could lead to a new "super snake," said George Horne, the water district’s deputy executive director. In Africa, the rock python eats creatures as large as goats and crocodiles. There have been cases of the snakes killing children. "They are bigger and meaner than the Burmese python. It’s not good news," said Deborah Drum, deputy director of the district’s restoration sciences department.

Personally,
I think this is a great cast-n-blast opportunity for outdoorsmen from boring old native-fauna-only states like mine. I’ve always wanted to fish for peacock bass in the canals around Miami-Dade. What if you combined that with a trophy hybrid "super snake" hunting trip? Lots of guys travel to the southern states to hunt alligators. Why not giant snakes? It’s becoming more and more apparent that exotic constrictors are established, and they’re there to stay. And I have to admit, the prospect of hunting a creature pushing twenty feet long is intriguing. If the price was right, would you travel to hunt such a super snake?

Release the hounds!

Florida officials plan to host an ole’-fashioned snake hunt – intended to root out the state’s population of ravenous Burmese pythons, which is ravaging the Everglades by eating everything in sight.

The great ‘Python challenge’ of 2013 is open any wrangler with the contest fee, the 30 minutes necessary to complete an online course, and the stomach to tromp through a reedy landscape in search of carnivorous snakes that can grow to as big as 18 feet in length.

‘Whichever method they use, hunters have an ethical obligation to dispatch the snake as humanely as possible,’ Carli Segelson, a spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, told FoxNews.com.

Nearly 400 hardy souls have already enlisted in the unorthodox, month-long competition, which begins Jan. 12. Its rules mandate that hunters leave the captured pythons at official drop-off sites within 24 hours of their being caught.

‘We are also using the Challenge to gauge the effectiveness of using an incentive-based model as one tool to address a challenging invasive species management problem,’ Segelson reoportedly said.

But not everyone thinks such a bizarre solution to Florida’s pesky python problem is in the state, the snakes’, or the hunters’ best interests.

‘Despite what has been portrayed in popular reality television shows, the Burmese pythons in the Everglades can be extremely dangerous when provoked,’ Melissa Coakley, a spokeswoman for the Florida-based Suncoast Herpetological Society, told FoxNews.com.

Coakley added the contest, complete with a ,500 cash prize for the largest wrangled constrictor, might convince some clever participants to merely purchase a python out-of-state on the cheap – and then submit it as one captured in the Everglades.

However, the FWC reportedly said it will put an unspecified number of game wardens on the ground in the Everglades region to ensure hunters are following the rules, as well as, staying safe.

‘Despite what has been portrayed in popular reality television shows, the Burmese pythons in the Everglades can be extremely dangerous when provoked’

FoxNews.com reports that Burmese pythons are generally not dangerous to humans because the snakes are often afraid of their greater height.

Still, the website reports that snakes are capable of killing a child and some experts say the larger pythons could even overpower – and kill – an adult in certain circumstances. The Burmese python kills by squeezing its prey, then swallowing it.

All American Gator, which harvests wild alligators for use in clothing, accessories and furniture, reportedly has said it will buy larger pythons captured during the hunt.

‘Aside from the obvious goal of reducing the Burmese python population in the Everglades,’ Segelson reportedly said, ‘we also hope to educate the public about Burmese pythons in Florida and how people can help limit the impact of this and other invasive species in Florida.’

Florida’s python problem apparently stems from a few misanthropes who once harbored the snakes as pets – but then released them into the wild. The snakes typically feed on the Everglades’ indigenous populations of raccoons, deer and bobcats.

For its part, FoxNews.com reports there could be as many as tens of thousands of the snakes residing in the Everglades.

Some cool Cat Spray images:

Boots & Smokey
Cat Spray

Image by Tom Wicker

We built our stallbarn in 1998 and, shortly after we’d moved the horses in, Semmie discovered that a mother cat had deposited her kittens there. We’d seen the mother on occasion the year before and had noticed her "delicate condition" a few weeks before the barn was completed. We never knew where she actually had the kittens, only that she moved them into the barn after they were weaned: our first "barn cats"!
Well, they didn’t really work out as barn cats. Actually, the cats that were born on the back steps leading into our garage became our barn cats, but that’s another story.
The three kittens left in our barn (we never saw the mother again – she must have met an untimely end) were ultimately named Boots (on the left), her brother Smokey (on the right), and her sister, Tootles (who disappeared in 2006). Unfortunately, they were not "socialized" – Boots bit through the web of Semmie’s thumb when she picked her up. And we weren’t able to do much other than "observe from a distance" when it came to these three. We figured they’d ultimately run off when they got older.
They didn’t leave – in fact they ended up coming to the back porch of our house (probably because that’s where we fed our other outdoor cats). We had already had the "other mother", Mistletoe, neutered after her appearance and delivery (cats just tend to "show up" don’t they?), and we decided we’d better do the same with these three.
We were able to capture Boots (wearing very thick gloves, using a couple of towels and ushering her into a cat carrier for transportation to the vet), but were unsuccessful in capturing Tootles until she’d had kittens twice (again – another story) or Smokey.
After the second set of Tootles’s kittens, we knew we had to get serious about catching her and Smokey. We were able to capture Tootles just after the kittens were weaned and take her to the vet (giving us a chance to work on socializing her young ones – which we’d already had some success with). We’d already had the first batch of kittens spayed and had even managed to give one of them away, so we were becoming good customers at our local vet. Just about everybody had been for their "visit".
Finally, Smokey and I had an adventure involving the hedges around our house, a large fish net, and one of the dog crates . . . in the rain. After several circuits around the house and a couple of hours, Smokey and I arrived at the vet soaking wet, with him hanging from the top of the dog crate, howling like a banshee. I told them he might be "semi" feral. This was about the time that we were taking Tootle’s second set of kittens (who we had managed to socialize) in for their vet adventures. Her son, Punkin Head, had gone in a couple of days before I captured Smokey and they sent them both home at the same time.
I didn’t think Smokey had had enough time to calm down and recover following his capture and surgery, but we couldn’t keep him in the crate and didn’t want to take him back to the vet, so we released him and he immediately ran off. I really thought he was gone for good after I didn’t seem him for three or four days, but he ultimately resumed tenancy on the back porch.
It wasn’t long after this that we made the decision to put one of our long time inside cats, Lillie, out on the porch. Her habit of "spraying" had become intolerable and – despite every effort – she could not be controlled.
Lillie and her sister, Ursula, had been adopted from a shelter about the same time that Semmie was given a Bombay/Burmese kitten, Izzy (their story is – once again – for another occasion). All three had been de-clawed and we worried about Lillie being outside.
The thing is – Lillie used to walk around the house moaning, with a sock or other object in her mouth. For all the world, it was as if she wanted kittens (which, being spayed, wasn’t going to happen). Well, when we put her on the back porch, it turned out that Smokey and Boots were also pining for their lost mother (Tootles, having become a mother herself, seemed to have gotten over this loss). They immediately bonded with Lillie and followed her around like little kittens instead of the three-four year old cats they were. We’ve observed that most mother cats reach a time when they "cut the apron strings". When the young cats try to sidle up next to her, she’ll bat them away and sometimes chase them – growling, hissing and biting. It’s nature’s way of saying, "Grow up – move on!"
Well, Lillie didn’t have this natural instinct – it must have been removed when she was neutered. So she’d wander around the porch with Boots and Smokey in tow; the two of them taking turns bumping into Lillie’s side, purring loudly. Lillie had begun to finally socialize these two. They still didn’t want much to do with us, but we saw more of them and they didn’t run at the sight of us. Smokey even appeared to have forgiven me for our erstwhile "adventure" (or maybe he just forgot about it with the passage of years).
Life as a cat on a farm is not without its risks. We mentioned above that we lost Tootles a few years back. She just didn’t show back up. Snakes, vehicles, neighbors’ dogs, coyotes — there are a lot of risks out there and we’ve lost a lot of good feline friends over the years. Lillie, however, died of old age (16) at the vet. We’d taken her in because we knew she was having systems failure and wanted to determine what to do. Before that decision had to be made, she passed away during the night. We held a funeral for her the next day.
After Lillie died, Smokey (who was closer to her than Boots) was distraught. He moaned. He paced. It was pitiful. Finally, abandoning any sense of dignity and self-respect, he gave in and became my friend. For the last couple of years, Smokey has greeted me at the back door every morning, and been waiting outside the garage every evening when I come home. He even managed to bring his sister along for most of the morning greetings on the back steps. During one "coyote scare" we were even able to keep Smokey inside for a couple of nights (although neither he nor we enjoyed that experience – he’d become socialized, but not an "inside" kinda cat). Smokey actually came to enjoy being picked up and held from time to time – purring contentedly.
He and Boots never became completely socialized. Unlike our other cats, they were more aloof (even for cats). But it was amazing what wonders Lillie was able to work on two cats who began life abandoned in a barn and feral.
A few weeks ago, we lost Smokey (neighbor’s dogs). We miss him and it’s hard to write this, but I wanted to post this photo of him and Boots and couldn’t do that without telling his story. Boots misses him to, and she’s let go of another little piece of feline dignity in allowing me to pick her up from time to time and hold her.
I think I’ve even heard a purr.

Carlton
Cat Spray

Image by Bev Goodwin

Carlton arrived at Freshfields rescue centre in May 2013. Here is his profile:-

‘Carlton was brought to the door; he had no home because his owner moved and just left him behind. A neighbour brought him because -being unneutered – he was spraying and bullying their cats. They phoned all the other rescues then decided they would bring him here! Carlton is such a handsome lad; his chubby cheeks make him truly irresistible. He is happy in the company of other cats and loves being able to lounge in the sun. He has left his days as a big, bad, bold adventurer behind, opting for the simple life with humans to serve his everyday needs. All he wants is some love and affection and a home to call his own.Great, characterful cat for a family with older children who are used to cats – Carlton knows his own mind!’

Sadly, being a black cat, Carlton may have a while to wait before being adopted. I really hope it isn’t too long.

Expert College Advice To Get

By JohnComments Off


For many, college is among the most pivotal times in life, and sets the stage for all of the professional achievements and intellectual interests to come. Therefore, the process of making decisions about which institution to attend, what course of study to follow and how to pay for it all can be crucial indeed. Continue reading to get some terrific advice for navigating this challenging stage of life.

No matter how long it may seem to take or what you have to go through in the process, don’t ever give up on your collegiate career! In the heat of the moment, something or someone may hold more appeal than all the studying and endless exams, but in the end, that certificate of graduation will be well worth whatever you have to do to get it.

Go visit several potential colleges to help you decide where you want to go to college. By visiting universities, private colleges and community colleges, you can decide what environment you really want to be in. Most colleges offer several tours throughout the school year. Many also offer an opportunity to shadow a student to see what a normal day is like.

Buy your school books a couple weeks before the term begins. Spend an hour familiarizing yourself with each of your books. If you have access to your course syllabus, check it out and see where in the book your class will be starting. This way you can get a bit of a head start.

Consider living on campus even if you go to school close to home. Not only will you miss a lot of things going on, but you may miss out on your first opportunity to live on your own and make your own financial and social decisions. If you can possibly afford it, live in a dorm.

As a college student, you will have access to many different jobs on campus. If you do not already have a good job, you should look for a job on campus. You should choose a job that will allow you to acquire some new skills and meet some interesting people.

Learn to budget. No matter where you get your money as a college student, you need to make sure your money lasts as long as you need it. Make a list of your expenses and think of how you can cut corners so that you can do what you need to do without going broke.

You should take advantage of all the resources you have available to you on the college campus, especially when it comes to academics. There are most likely plenty of study spaces, computer labs, etc. that you can go to get some peace and quiet and quality study time in.

You should consider signing up for a work study program if you want to get some professional experience. Most work study programs will require you to alternate between taking classes and working as an intern. This is a good way to finance your education while gaining some professional experience and building a professional network.

If possible, you should avoid scheduling classes one after the other. You are going to need breaks during the day. The best time for these breaks is after a class. This time will allow you to wind down, prepare for your next class or study if needed. Take these opportunities when you can.

On the day of your exam, go to the bathroom ahead of time. This may sound self-explanatory, but there are so many things to remember on test day that it’s easy to forget. When testing, you want to eliminate as many distractions as you can and your bladder can be a big distraction.

When you are deciding on where to sit in class, try to avoid your friends and stay near the front of the class. This can reduce your chances for unnecessary socializing and can help you to focus during the teachers lecture. Also, this will show your professor that you mean business and are an active participant.

If you feel your schedule can handle it, take an additional class during each semester. Many students can easily handle the average class load, which means that adding in one more class will be a minor burden at best. This can allow you to shorten your time in college enough to graduate a little earlier.

Brush up on study techniques before you go away to school. You do not want to waste your time learning how to study when you are trying to get studying in. This will just make it harder for you to retain the information that you need to learn for your classes.

Resist the urge to skip a class simply because a professor’s syllabus allows for an absence. These absences should be saved for when absolutely necessary, and if you use one for fun early in the term you may be regretting it if you are ill or otherwise unable to attend but must get to campus to save your grade.

Carefully consider each purchase, big and small. If you are paying for tuition with student loans, paying them off should be your top priority. Don’t waste your money on pizza, clothing and entertainment–at least not all of it. Sock away as much as possible to repay those loans. Otherwise, you will be swimming in even more debt by the time you graduate.

Wait until you go to class before buying your textbooks. When you start class, you will get a syllabus, and the teacher will talk to you about which books you need right away. You might be able get the book at the library, or you may be able to buy one book immediately and not need to buy other books until later in the semester. That will save you money.

There can be no denying the importance of a college education for countless individuals. However, that is not to say that decisions regarding where to apply, which major to choose and how the degree program will be financed are simple ones. By heeding the tips found above, it is possible to simplify the process a bit and gain a bit of helpful perspective.

How To Prevent And Treat

By JohnComments Off


A yeast infection is rarely a major medical problem, but it can be very annoying for women. There are a number of ways to deal with a yeast infection and steps to follow to prevent a yeast infection from developing in the first place. That is what the tips found here are all about.

Avoid using any scented products near the vagina. Women who use scented pads or any scented feminine washes can create a PH imbalance in the vagina. This will make favorable conditions for Candida Albicans to grow, which is a fungus causing yeast infections. It is best to use unscented pads and just simple water to wash in private areas.

Whenever you take prescribed antibiotics, it is a good idea to take probiotics as well. Antibiotics eradicate the good bacteria as well as the bad bacteria, and that can lead to an overgrowth of yeast cells which cause a yeast infection. Taking probiotics can help restore the good bacteria in your system, making it less likely that a yeast infection will occur.

Make sure that you are getting enough sleep each night. Your immune system is what keeps the growth of yeast at bay. By taking the precautions to get enough sleep each night, you are letting your immune system do its job. This means, avoid drinking any caffeine or exercising three hours before bedtime.

Recurring vaginal yeast infections can be the result of too much stress. Since stress weakens your body’s immune system, you are more prone to all infections, including yeast infections. Try to reduce the stress in your life to get relief from your yeast infections. When you are under unavoidable stress, try relaxation techniques to help you cope.

Garlic is a great natural remedy, and it has proven effective in fighting yeast infections. Create a garlic tampon by tying string to a couple of cloves and inserting it into the vagina. Leave it in for a couple of hours, and relief will typically come. The antifungal properties of the garlic have a healing effect and can effectively combat troublesome yeast.

Since yeast thrives in moist environments, it is imperative to stay as dry as possible at all times. If you have been swimming, change into dry clothing as quickly as possible. Furthermore, exercise can cause sweat and moisture to build up, so it is important to shower and change into clean underwear and clothing after a workout.

Many women think that douching will keep the vaginal area clean and less susceptible to yeast infection. However, frequent douching can actually destroy the good bacteria that live in the vagina, leaving you more likely to get a yeast infection. Regular bathing with a gentle cleanser and thorough drying are enough to keep the area clean.

Keep in mind that certain medications can cause yeast infection by killing the good bacteria in the vagina that help to prevent yeast infection. Antibiotics, medications for urinary tract infection and birth control pills are just a few of these culprits. If you have problems with yeast infections, consult your doctor and ask about alternative medications that may not cause problems.

Avoid using scented products, such as scented tampons, powders or soaps, in the vaginal area. The ingredients that make these products smell good can cause an imbalance to the natural flora of the vaginal region. This can result in a yeast infection. Choose unscented problems to keep yourself healthy.

Stay away from feminine hygiene products that contain fragrances and perfumes. In fact, it changes the pH. This can create dryness and itchiness. These are the conditions that yeast organisms prefer. Use non-scented hygiene products and look out for any discomfort or burning that may occur.

Coconut oil is one easy and inexpensive home treatment for yeast infection that works for many. Try adding a couple of teaspoons to your diet per day for best impact. It can be added to coffee or taken on it’s own. It tastes good, is generally healthful and is often the only treatment needed to eliminate yeast in the body.

If you suffer from reoccurring yeast infections, visit your doctor. While there are many very effective over the counter treatments, a reoccurring infection warrants a doctor’s visit. A doctor can help you to determine the underlying cause and keep those infections from coming back. They also might be able to offer some stronger medications to cure your infection faster.

Whenever you take an antibiotic, it makes your body more prone to yeast infections. You do not needlessly need to suffer with the itching and burning of an yeast infection, though. As soon as your start taking that first antibiotic, also start taking a probiotic. You can purchase it in a powder form and add it to a fruit smoothie. You can also eat yogurt. Acidophilus, a bacteria found in yogurt, is a probiotic. You can also get probiotics in a pill form, if that is your preference.

Do not purchase clothes with synthetic fibers. Garments that are constructed from man-made fibers usually do not allow air to circulate around the skin and thus they trap moisture and heat against the body. Yeast loves warm, moist conditions. Always check the label of the clothes you buy, especially on your underwear, and avoid synthetic fibers.

If your mouth or vagina is infected, do not itch or douche to make the burning sensation go away. Instead, drink cold liquids or take cold baths to make the burning sensation go away. Use home remedies or over the counter medication to treat your infection and make an effort to improve your hygiene so the infection does not spread.

The amount of sugar that you eat has a direct relationship to the frequency of yeast infections. Sugar is food for yeast. The more sugar you intake, the more likely you are to have a yeast infection. Limit the amount of sugar in your diet and you will be less likely to have a yeast infection.

Don’t let a yeast infection keep you down or from enjoying your favored activities. A yeast infection is not the end of the world. Better yet, though, take preventative measures to keep a yeast infection from even developing. Use the advice you read here and get on with your life.

Titusville, FL March 25, 2014

Spring has sprung and it?s time to step into gear and walk to help Brevard?s homeless pets at the SPCA of Brevard?s fifth annual Happy Tails Dog Stroll-A-Thon on Saturday, April 5th at Sand Point Park in Titusville. Participants can register online at http://www.spcabrevard.com and click on the events tab or stop by the SPCA Adoption Center at 455 Cheney Highway to pick up registration information.

The Stroll, sponsored by NexGard Chewables and Altman?s Cooling and Heating, will benefit the SPCA?s new adoption center remodeling project. Registration is free; there will be premiums for individual participants based on levels achieved and pack (team) participation is encouraged with a competition for the ?Pack of the Year? title.

Registration and check-in starts at 9am and the Stroll-A-Thon begins at 10am. Vaccinated, socialized dogs on 6-foot or shorter leashes are welcome to this fun-for-the-family event! The leisurely stroll around Sand Point Park includes optional points such as a ?show us your trick? station where your canine companion can show off his coolest trick to receive a treat and water stations, too. After the Stroll, stop by the Vendor Village where you will find food, merchandise, rescues with adoptable pets and a ?Smooch Your Pooch? style photo booth.

Tips On What To Do

By JohnComments Off


If you’ve just been diagnosed with cancer, you probably are feeling a lot of conflicting emotions at once. You may be afraid, depressed, angry or anxious. You need to find quality medical care and make necessary lifestyle changes, but you can’t do that until you have good information. Read on to get a good head start on the information you may need.

Exercise is important when you’re fighting cancer. Exercise gets the blood flowing in your body. When the blood is flowing faster through your body, vital nutrients and pharmaceuticals that are needed to cure your disease will more easily travel to the areas of your body affected with cancer cells.

Ovarian cancer is a serious form of cancer that is hard to treat. The symptoms don’t usually make themselves known early, and there are no screening tests for early detection. There are several ways to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer such as a diet low in fat, sugar and red meat. Keeping weight down, and taking birth control pills can also reduce the risk. As a last resort, some women choose to have their ovaries removed after childbearing. This removes the risk entirely.

One of the most important tips to remember after being diagnosed with cancer is to maintain a healthy life style. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will give you more energy, which you will need during the treatment process. A healthy lifestyle consists of eating healthy foods and doing regular exercise.

Prepare yourself for all the physical changes that may take place as you receive cancer treatment. Your doctor will be able to tell you what affect treatment and drugs may have. Be prepared for the possibility of hair loss by having a wig ready and look around for some make up to handle any complexion problems.

Maintaining a healthy diet can help you to keep your energy levels up if you have cancer. This disease is very draining on you emotionally and physically. Keeping high levels of energy is imperative if you hope to fight and beat this disease. Higher levels of energy mean you can exercise more and work to get healthy.

A person dealing with cancer needs to hear the words “I love you”, every day. This assures them of your emotional support. Actions are a wonderful way to show that you care, but words can have a healing power when someone is experiencing a stressful situation. Do not hesitate to frequently tell your friend or family member how you feel.

People who drink orange juice are less likely to contract stomach cancer due to the vitamin C contained within. Many studies have shown that 1000mg of vitamin C per day can all but eliminate stomach cancer, but even a small glass of OJ every day, containing around 40mg of vitamin C, can help you prevent it.

Avoiding the doom and gloom associated with cancer will help you to ultimately defeat it. Episodes of your favorite M.D. show can be hazardous to your health. Those images of sick and dying people can really put your mind in a bad place. Avoid them and, as trite as it sounds, find a happier place.

You should always seek second opinions, even if you believe your oncologist is the best in his or her field. It’s only an opinion you’re seeking; you never know when someone made a mistake or failed to mention a possible treatment option to you. Getting multiple opinions will simply give you multiple sources of information.

It is suggested that young woman get the Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine before they begin to become sexually active. The vaccine is said to help prevent cervical cancer. HPV is one of the highest risk factors involved with cervical cancer. Other factors include family history. Getting a pap smear regularly is also a great form of prevention.

Choose the place to get your mammogram done carefully. It will make a difference in getting accurate readings. Find a doctor that specializes in mammography because they are going to be more accurate and reading the images and you are sure to get better results by this well practiced professional.

Wear a strong SPF protection sunscreen every day. This can help to reduce your risk of skin cancer. The sun emits damaging ultraviolet rays, but sunscreen can help to protect you from them. Look for a high quality sunscreen that contains both UVA and UVB protection for best results.

You must remember to continue to have fun. Being diagnosed with cancer doesn’t mean that you will be unable enjoy life any longer. Keep doing the things that you love, such as reading, seeing movies at the theater, and attending your favorite sporting events. While your life now has a new dimension to it, and allowances have to be made for that, fundamentally it is still your life to live.

Know the moles on your body. It would not hurt to occasionally take a photo of the moles that you have, so you will be able to track their growth. If you have a mole that is growing or changing colors, you must go to have your doctor check it for you immediately.

Learn about meditation and guided visualization. These techniques will help you get through this difficult time. You will be able to do both of them as you are at home getting some quiet time or even when you are sitting through your treatments. It will help you to pass the time in a positive way.

Just because you are ill, you do not have to put your life on hold. You should continue engaging in your favorite activities for as long as you’re physically able to. Just because your sick doesn’t mean that you have to give up all the things you love to do! You will be happy you did it, and you will know it is easy to keep a positive attitude.

Cancer tips like these can provide quite a helping hand to those that have been diagnosed with cancer, or even those that may be experiencing symptoms that they think could be cancer. The truth is, cancer isn’t such a hopeless disease, and can be treated with the right methods and treatments, as well as a new lifestyle and a better aim for health, which starts with learning so much more.

A Horse Of A Different

A few nice Horse Spray images I found:

Flurry, a gelding, learned the hard way that it is not wise to break into the stallion’s pasture in the middle of the night. Fionn, the stallion, made it quite clear to Flurry that he was not welcome.

Lots of purple antibiotic spray and pink SWAT later, he’s a bit tender, somewhat humiliated and hopefully has learned a lesson!

What do you mean I look silly? I’m one handsome horse!

Live An Anxietyfree Live Today

There are few things that have the type of impact on daily life that anxiety can have. The best way to manage the potentially crippling impacts of anxiety on sufferers is to acquire as much knowledge as possible about the condition. Put the tips in this article to diligent use, and it can be easier than ever before to mitigate the harm anxiety might otherwise cause.

To help you reduce your anxiety symptoms, keep a journal of all of the events or issues that make you anxious throughout the day. Refer back to these events and see how they actually transpired. You will realize that you are often imagining a worst case scenario which does not transpire.

If you are experiencing a serious anxiety, or panic attack, you should remember to breathe properly in order to calm down. We need to remember that our bodies are like machines, and taking proper breaths is what fuels them properly. Remember, to lengthen your exhalation, in order to relieve your anxiety a bit more.

Laughter is one of the very best ways to circumvent anxiety since it changes your focus and lightens your mood. As a tension-breaker it cannot be beat, and the best part is that its effects can be shared with those around you. Try to cultivate an appreciation for the silly and absurd side of life. Embrace the funny and witty people in your life. Bring them closer so their resilience becomes a model for you.

Learn how to use positive affirmations to help you with your anxiety. This can include motivational poetry, upbeat songs or just simple phrases that make you feel good about yourself. Sit down and think about how you want your day to go and do what you have to do to make it a reality.

Sometimes when people deal with a tremendous amount of anxiety, they begin to crave salt. You body is giving you a signal that it requires more salt. Use unprocessed and raw salt that supplements the minerals in your body.

Talk to a trusted friend or family member about your anxiety problems. If you tell someone else how you feel, they may be able to help you put things in perspective and help you to think positive thoughts. This can help you get rid of anxiety or at least make it better.

Don’t forget to play. With the hustle and bustle of your busy life, taking the time to play a sport, a game or an instrument might seem frivolous. Taking an hour to let your hair down and have fun can do wonders for your stress and anxiety levels, though.

Workplace anxiety can often be reduced or eliminated by taking a simple walk. As deadlines approach and employers pile on more work, many people forget the power of taking a short break. Going outside and walking around the building gives you a chance to refresh your mind and body.

While everyone should eat healthy, balanced meals, people who have anxiety should pay special attention to this. A balanced, nutritional diet contains vitamins and minerals your body requires to be healthy, instead of the bad things you could be ingesting.

Learn to breathe deeply from your diaphragm. When you take deep, regular breaths from your diaphragm, you will increase your calming feelings and begin to relax. Focus on breathing from your midsection, near your belly button. The stomach should extend outwards, if the breath is coming from the right area.

If you feel anxious at any point during the day, turn to your favorite songs or music genre. This can help you to relax and improves your state of mind. Putting on classical or upbeat music can help you create a balance and equilibrium, eliminating the daily stresses that you feel.

To quiet your mind before bedtime, you can try keeping a journal. This is a good way to focus on what is bothering you so you can move on and relax. Be sure to work on your journal as often as necessary.

When you are having an anxiety attack, it is a good idea to splash your face with cold water. Many people have heard this, but they may not do it because they think that it is not going to really help them. Actually, it causes what is known as a dive reflex, and it sends a message to your brain to tell your body to slow down.

Do not fear seeking medical advice for facing your anxiety. Just the thought of seeking a professional opinion, can be another source of anxiety. Don’t let this happen to you. Anxiety is often a medical condition that can be solved with the right information and treatment. Relax and make the appointment.

Try staying active. Exercise is a great way to let out some of your tensions and worries that have been plaguing you. It can put any negative thoughts far away from you and it naturally creates positive thoughts for you to dwell on, instead! Make sure that you go to the gym!

Breathing techniques are one of the best ways that you can reduce all physical stress that causes anxiety as the day wears on. Take long, deep breaths during the day to let your body acquire the oxygen that it needs to function properly. Engaging in this breathing pattern helps stabilize mood and reduces tension.

Letting go of the past, may be what it takes, for you to get rid of anxiety. Many times, anxiety is caused by people dwelling on bad experiences from the past. You must have the mindset that the past is the past; and focus on the present and times to come.

It is certainly true that anxiety is a condition with the power to negatively impact the lives of those it effects. A great way to handle the condition and regain control is to acquire as much information as possible about anxiety. Apply the advice in this article liberally, and you will notice a major difference in short order.
