The time came around again for me to purchase a new toothbrush...
Normally I'm the one that would always go for the conventional plastic looking toothbrush...
Always choosing the one with the soft bristles...but on this particular day I wanted to be more daring with my life...
So I decided to purchase the Bamboo toothbrush...a toothbrush with a wooden looking handle...
And after giving my teeth a simple bamboo cleaning, I was so glad that I did...
The Bamboo Toothbrush
The Bamboo toothbrush is a toothbrush that is essentially made with either nylon or charcoal bristles. Its most attractive feature consist of the bamboo handle...
The Bamboo Toothbrush Contains Antimicrobial Agents
Bamboos may have a tree like appearance but they are actually grass plants! They are composed of a natural element called Bamboo Kun.
Bamboo Kun is a natural antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-odor agent.
When a toothbrush is made from Bamboo, these three antimicrobial agents are automatically preserved with in the Bamboo toothbrush.
This special feature can help safeguard the Bamboo toothbrush from certain kinds of bacteria.
The Bamboo Toothbrush Promotes A Healthy Smile
Bamboo toothbrushes are naturally embedded with antimicrobial properties.
These properties can help eliminate plaque, and odor causing bacteria.
The nylon bristles that are made with bamboo toothbrushes can be gentle and sufficient in cleaning both the teeth and gums.
Activated charcoal bristles can assist in the removal of tarter build-up, and can also help lighten some of the stains that may be found on the teeth.
Maybe we can all simply bamboo our way into a whiter and brighter smile!
The Bamboo Toothbrush Is Eco Friendly
Bamboo plants are one the fastest growing plants on earth, and can release up to 35% more oxygen in the air than a length of hardwood trees.
Bamboo toothbrushes are naturally composed of biodegradable materials.
Unlike with the plastic toothbrush, the Bamboo handle can naturally breakdown and convert itself in an open landfill.
It seems to me that Mother Earth and the Bamboo plant are pretty good friends!
The Bamboo Toothbrush is Simply Unique
The Bamboo toothbrush is simply stylish and unique! That's what led me to purchase the wooden looking toothbrush in the first place!
The Bamboo toothbrush brings on a certain style appeal that takes the toothbrush to a whole-nother level!!
Oh, and let’s not forget to mention that they can come in a range of colors and assorted sizes!
The bamboo popularity is soaring because of the many benefits that it has to offer! Bamboo production is also on the rise, and so are the toothbrushes!
With so many different Bamboo toothbrushes to choose from, for some making the right selection can seem quite challenging.

What is Savasana?
Savasana (Corpse Pose) is an ancient yoga pose that is meant to calm, reinforce, and bring awareness to both the mind and body.
Although Savasana requires very little or no physical activity, many people still seem to find this yoga pose very difficulty to perform. How could this be some might wonder?
Probably because Savasana requires one to simply lay on the back, take deep breaths, and just be....still. However for many people to simply just be still can be quite difficult.
No matter how difficult, people or yogis all over the world will always continue to practice the art of Savasana.
One main reason being is that the Savasana (Corpse Pose) is also known as the yoga pose that can bring the dead back to life!
Not to worry, that simple phrase is not to be taken literally. What it really means is that Savasana is known to zestfully restore as you lay down on your back like a corpse.
Not only that, but according to healthline.com, the Savasana pose can help relax and stabilize an over stressed Nervous System.
What is the Nervous System?
The Nervous System functions as a powerhouse to the mind and body because it composes and operates both the brain and the spinal cord.
The Nervous System and The Stress Response:
When the Nervous System becomes stressed, it can cause a chemical reaction known as the Stress Response. During the Stress Response the body can see a rise in blood pressure and a rapid increase in heartbeat.
Chronic or long term Stress Responses can trigger even more or worst symptoms such as heart disease, digestive problems, and psychological disorders.
In other words chronic or long term stress can slowly breakdown the body, which can cause chronic disease that can eventually lead to death.
The Stress Response is suppose to be the body's mechanism to help the body survive in life-threatening situations.
Unfortunately, many people, including my self can trigger the Stress Response within their body over non life-threatening stressors that they encounter in their everyday lives.
What are Stressors?
Stressors are events or situations that can bring upon stress to one's mind or body.
Some examples of stressors can include: getting up and going to work each morning, running late for work, trying to meet a deadline at school, sitting in traffic, getting cut off by another car while driving, dealing with a difficult boss or co-worker, not being able to pay your bills on time, helping the kids with their homework, closing on a brand new home, planning a party or wedding, or something as simple as grocery shopping.
Although these stressors can impose stress upon one's mind and body, they should not be deemed as life-threatening.
On the other hand there are some stressors that are much more deserving of, and will most likely signal a Stress Response, such as losing a loved one, or being diagnosed with a terminal illness.
How Savasana can help:
By practicing Savasana on a regular basis, you will over the course of time begin to gain more control over your mind and body.
At first it will seem difficult to practice Savasana, as you may find it difficult to simply lay there and just be still...
As you lay there, you may have the urge to move your arms and legs. You might even suddenly get up from your Savasana pose and begin some other task. If you do, don't be discouraged!
With daily practice of Savasana, you will eventually be able to identify those sudden urges to move your body as you lay there still, and simply learn to control them.
With practice, Savasana will teach you to become the ultimate observer of your mind and body.
With continuous reinforcement, you will take notice when your thoughts begin to wonder, and learn to bring them back to the front and center.
The best part is that you will automatically incorporate this special mind power into your everyday life!
So the next time that one person decides to cut you off while you're in traffic, you may simply choose to respond with laughter rather than to become all hot and bothered by it.
When to practice Savasana:
You can practice Savasana during any part of your day! You can wake up to Savasana in the morning time to give yourself a head start for a successful day!
You can plug in the Savasana battery for a quick and simple recharge during your noon-time break! Or you can spend your evenings practicing Savasana as a way to simply calm, renew, rebuild, and reflect!

How to practice Savasana:
I use to hate it whenever I had to unclog a toilet. Why? Probably because I didn't know what I was doing. Toilet plunging never went over smoothly for me.
Sometimes during the toilet plunging process the mucky yucky toilet water would overflow onto the bathroom floor. Causing me to go and get a mop and mop bucket so that I could begin the fun and exciting chore of mopping the bathroom floor.
Other times I would stand over the toilet plunging my heart and lungs out, until I would break out in sweat from all of the plunging to no avail.
Then there were the few times that the toilet would simply unclog after only one flush and forceful plunge.
Now it feels good to say that I no longer have a feeling of hate towards unclogging a toilet. Why? Probably because now I do know what I am doing.
I noticed that whenever my husband would have to unclog a toilet, he would always seem to do it with no problems. So one day I asked him to explain to me how to properly plunge a toilet. What he told me was all so simple...
If toilet bowl is empty:
Give one simple flush. As the water rises in toilet cover the hole with plunger. Then give one forceful push with plunger. Repeat the forceful push with plunger until toilet becomes unclogged.
The main goal is to push or force water into the hole with the plunger. Not to pull water out.
If toilet bowl is already full with water:
Do not flush the toilet. Place plunger over the hole and then give one forceful push with plunger. Repeat the forceful push until the water goes down toilet or toilet becomes unclogged.
The main goal is to push or force water into hole with plunger. Not to pull water out.
Unclogging a toilet...is all so simple!
