    Location: Provision Health & Performance

    To register, call (865) 219-3210 or email: claudio@themindfulcenter.com

    Instructor: Claudio Barrientos

    In this course participants progress through a uniquely comprehensive study and practice of mindfulness meditation: what it is, how to do it in our daily lives to reduce stress, manage pain, help with sleep issues, weight issues, healing processes, and more, and how it enables our ability to participate in our own health and well being.

    As part of the class, participants receive a comprehensive course book providing invaluable information, explanations, and tips for students not only during the session, but after it’s conclusion as well. Also, each student receives a Four CD set of Guided Meditations that are utilized throughout the eight week program and that also provide a seamless transition from the end of the course to the beginning of your independent practice. This wonderful series of meditations are a direct descendant of the Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn MBSR Program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center and could not be provided without his generous and exceptional guidance. The course culminates with an all day meditation retreat, an absolute once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    Reasons people participate in MBSR:
    Stress — job, family, financial, health, or even no known cause
    Chronic pain
    Anxiety and panic
    GI distress
    Sleep disturbances
    High blood pressure

    Two decades of published research indicates the majority of people who complete MBSR courses report:

    Lasting decreases in physical and psychological symptoms
    An increased ability to relax
    Reductions in pain levels and an enhanced ability to cope with pain that may not go away
    Greater energy and enthusiasm for life
    Improved self-esteem
    An ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations

    For more info or to register call 865.219.3210
    Email: claudio@themindfulcenter.com

    The amazing component of the eight week session is in participants’ ability to experience and practice while still under the guidance of instructor Claudio Barrientos. Many times beginning and intermediate practitioners experience set backs due to unanswered questions about distractions, posture, overactive minds, paradigm shifts, and how to effectively bring mindfulness into work and/or family environments – questions they didn't know they’d have in the preliminary stages. Or they give up too soon because of misperceptions about the successful integration of the practice into our daily lives.

    This eight week session is the antidote. The longer time frame allows participants to find answers to their questions, the discipline for a truly enriching experience of mindfulness, and therefore a successful integration of the practice into where we need it most: our lives.

    If you've ever wanted to learn meditation, you won’t want to miss this amazing opportunity. If in the past you've tried to develop a practice but couldn't seem to stay with it, this eight week session is the course for you. Experts say it takes 21 days for a habit to become ingrained, and with the support of the group, you will finally be able to CREATE AND STICK TO a practice that will give you tremendous benefit.

    Summary of Benefits of the 8 Week Program:

    A dynamic course for profound yet easy to understand instruction on mindfulness meditation.
    Easy-to-implement methods for a successful and disciplined practice – even if you’ve struggled in the past.
    Time to experience and practice on your own while still under the guidance of the instructor.
    Time to get all questions answered – even the ones you didn’t know you’d have.
    Day long retreat – a once in a lifetime experience.
    Comprehensive course book you can refer back to again and again…as well as share with family and friends.
    Four CD set of Guided Meditations based on the internationally acclaimed program by Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn

The Dao is Broken by Geese

They call golfing the dao of peace. It's the sport where an individual can experience the purity of divine oneness of self; the cant of the body as opposed to the ball. The sensation of bodily symmetry as it flows from rest to action all in a single, powerful stroke. It's the ultimate expression of body mechanics; the refined distillation of skill into the singular motion to strike the ball. Yet even here on this vibrant green expanse there is a need for bird control in NJ to battle back the threat of the goose horror which threatens to overtake the sanctity of calming peace. A peace which is practiced every day by golfers who seek only to improve their game, their balance of skill alone or with friends. You might find yourself laughing at the ridiculous notion of geese attacking people but it's something that happens every day across the globe.

From the United States to Russia there is a threat in the form of the winged, grey goose. Typically they are harmless in appearance and action. From behind the relative safety of ours or our homes when we might see a flock fly by we are of no concern to them. It's when we're all out in the open together, face to beak, is it that the inherent violence of instinctive territorial behavior comes to purpose in a flurry of beating wings. For a golfer it's the choice between zen and violence. I may not be much of a golfer myself so it's no surprise that I took up the drive club to wield it in self defense. I had no idea that a goose could be so violent as it flapped-waddled its way toward me despite my desperate club waving. I didn't even hit it as I was forced to run.

Our New Internet in Bloomington Works Just How We Want It to Work

It is just my wife and I at home. Well, we have the dog too, but I don't think he uses the Internet much. We signed up for broadband Internet in Bloomington. We needed high speed even though it is just the two of us. We like to stream movies and TV shows. Sometimes we watch separate things at the same time. If you are trying to steam two HD shows over a slow Internet connection, it will not work. It will fall back to a lower resolution or buffer or both!

Out new Internet in Bloomington was more than fast enough to stream to HD movies on two separate high-definition televisions at the same time. We know because we tested it as soon as it was hooked up. Our game console connects flawlessly to its servers, our cell phones have no trouble with Wi-Fi, and our tablets and computers all upload and download just fine. We do not have an Internet speed problem at our house. In fact, I think we have enough bandwidth to support a herd of tech savvy teenagers.

We used to have a slow service before we signed up for our Internet in Bloomington. In addition to the liberal speeds for uploading and downloading data, we also like the low price. Some of the other services wanted a ridiculous amount for the same speeds. I think it pays to shop around for everything. I think the Internet service you have should just be enjoyed. You should not have to think about it, fool with it or worry about how you are going to pay for it. It should just work and be affordable and not get in the way of what you want to accomplish online whether it is uploading a selfie or downloading a software suite.

Doing Business in Singapore is an Interesting Experience

Setting up shop in a new country was easier than I thought. Leasing office space in a heavily urbanized area was actually pretty straightforward. Singapore has a lot of people in a small space so finding room to do business is not really an issue. Just let it be known what you want, and someone will find it for you. We got a really nice office in a shared occupancy building. Our condo where we live is in the same building. We found a firm that does Singapore company incorporation quickly and effortlessly on our part. Then we got down to the business of serving our clients.

As it goes with most businesses, we had clients ready before we were even ready to do business. We had to grow into our operation quickly. This meant getting corporate papers filed fast so the process could be completed in a short time. It is nice to have a business idea and have work lined up before you even can legally put your sign on the door. We did have all of our ducks in a row the day we opened up. Our business licenses, corporate papers and insurance were all set to go that Monday morning we opened for business in our new corporate office in Singapore.

It was interesting to take an elevator to work. Singapore has shared occupancy buildings that can be homes, retail spaces and offices combined inside very large skyscrapers. The land mass of Singapore is relatively fixed. They do dump dirt into the ocean to build land outwards, but that is a slow process. So, as big cities do, they build up into the sky. Our office is on a lower floor, and our home is in a beautiful condo on an upper floor. We have shops to buy from in the same building and even restaurants. Singapore brings peaceful park settings into and onto the buildings as well. We have grass, trees and an infinity pool on the roof of our building. It is cool being able to earn money, live, shop, eat out and relax without even leaving the building!

Finally Completing Some DIY Jobs

I have come to appreciate being able to change whatever I like about my home. I'm a first time home buyer so I've been indulging in DIY (Do It Yourself) projects all year long with the latest one being installing shower doors in Essex County NJ. I found a great company that sells shower enclosures and after finding a couple of potential projects on Reddit I decided to go with a completely stone shower with a shower enclosure to seal it in. I enjoy being able to take showers for as long as possible. My goal was to retain the heat of that shower for quite a while thus the stone.

I wouldn't have pegged myself for someone who is able to do DIY projects. For years I've always avoided trying to do anything with my hands because I used to lack to patience to complete anything. On top of that I wasn't someone who would read directions very well so I wouldn't get very much done in the proper fashion! But after buying my home and wanting to somehow improve it I started to look into it more and decided to go with some smaller projects to test the waters.

After a couple of failures I was growing frustrated with myself. On a project that I was considering 'the last' I forced myself to take it slow, to read the directions and go over my work again and again. This time I did it! That sense of accomplishment and knowing that I had just finished what was tantamount to a carpentry job was a massive encouragement. I tried another one with similar results! Yes! I was getting somewhere, finally, and knew that if I was able to do those jobs then I would be able to do any job.

The Best DVR System is Provided by Direct TV Equipment

There is some really nice direct tv equipment that blows cable out of the water. The new receiver boxes use what is called SWIM technology. You only need one main receiver to be able to do a mix of having five TVs or recording five shows. How it works is really simple. You have one main box and then tiny boxes at each other TV wired at the house. The main box has the computer hard drive for holding all of the shows. It has five TV tuners. That mean it can either be recording or broadcasting TV channels to up to five TV sets at one time.

If you have three televisions, you can be recording two shows live if the three televisions are actively watching shows. If you have one TV watching a show, that leaves four TV tuners available for recording live shows. Get it? it is a mix or match of up to five at one time on one main box. In our house we have two televisions. One in the living room and another one in the bedroom. We are usually only watching one TV at a time. That means one space, if you will, is used up on the box to watch the show we are watching. That leaves four spaces for recording live shows.

I can stop watching a recorded show in one room and pick it up where I left off at the other TV. This is great for when I am wanting to wind down a bit in bed before I go to sleep. It also beats falling asleep on the couch and getting a sore neck. If we add another TV, it feeds off of the main receiver to have all access to everything recorded on the DVR. Whatever is recorded on the main box is available to all the other TVs connected to that box, which is up to five.

Best Deals on Cox Cable Locally

I have bought a new apartment, that is located in a city that I have never lived in before, but I am looking forward to the opportunities provided by this new location. It is by far the biggest city I have ever lived in. I will go ahead and say that I have moved to Atlanta, in Georgia, and it is a bit of a culture shock, but I have always wanted to try living in a big city. I need to look for cox cable near you and the deals that they offer in this area.

I would like to have my television set up pretty soon. I have been living in my new apartment for three days now, and I do not have much of anything to do, other than to try to unpack and organize stuff. It is kind of frustrating to not have any sort of entertainment, and that is why I am hoping to get television service soon. I can passively watch television, while doing other boring tasks, such as cleaning and unpacking, and not get nearly as bored as I would if there was not a television available.

Well, I do have a television in my apartment, and it is already hooked up for the most part. It is just a matter of me not having a subscription for any sort of cable service in the area. It is a problem that I would like to rectify soon, and the sooner I can get cable set up, the better, as far as I am concerned. I have really been bored lately, and I know that television will go a long way towards remedying the problem. But I am not going to rush into things, and rather, I need to try to make a good decision for a cable package to use.

We Got Maryland Direct TV on Four TVs

When we were remodeling our house, it was going to include running new wires and cables for the phones, TV and Internet. I contacted a maryland direct tv company to install satellite TV in our home for four televisions. There was the main one in the living room, one in our master bedroom and one each in the rooms of our two children. I was kind of excited to be getting satellite TV. They carried a channel that I have been wanting for a long time that was extra through our cable company. I would have had it with the old TV service, but just could not justify the jump in cost for one channel.

Now I am recording and watching all of the shows I have seen advertised but could not watch before. It is nice that the satellite company has a channel package that makes more sense to me. I do not feel like they are trying to gouge me by putting popular channels into packages that cost a whole lot more to get. Plus the picture is perfect. Our big screen TV has never looked better. I like the quality of the picture and sound of satellite TV. The football games are the best, and we watch a lot of football at my house.

Our son is the quarterback of his high school team. He is going to be attending our state university in three years. My wife likes her crime dramas, and now she has me hooked. We spend time just about every evening watching a show we have recorded on DVR. Sometimes on a lazy day off we will binge watch a bunch of shows we have recorded. It is fun for us. The kids do not have to miss their shows since they get the same channels in their rooms. We also set up parental locks on the satellite receivers of our children to control their viewing habits.

Introductory Deals with Direct TV

I am moving into a new house, and I think it would be nice to try to switch to satellite, as opposed to resuming a relationship with the company that I used to get my television service through. I do not see much of a need to do that, because they pretty much had the worst customer service ever. Instead, I am going to look into direct tv and the type of pricing that they have for their services. Hopefully, it is affordable, but I want to look through all of the deals thoroughly, to try to find the best plan for me.

I would not be averse to picking a plan that has an introductory price, as long as the plan does not cost like twice as much money, after that period is over. That would be ridiculous, and I am not going to pay so much money, just to keep my plan the same. If it comes down to that, then I would need to have the option to switch to a plan that does not cost so much money.

I think that my mother did something like that, when she had Direct TV a couple of years ago. I know that she was getting all of the channels for NFL games, and that was really cool, because I would go over to her house, just to watch the games on Sunday. However, she ended up canceling those channels, at a certain point in time, because they were going to increase her monthly bill. I would be fine with doing something like that, as long as I did not have to give up my favorite channels, when the period ended. I will have to find more info about the details and conditions though, to make an informed decision.

Setting Up a Security System

Of course as soon as I built this house it struck me as to how vulnerable it is to burglars. For one thing it is a pretty good ways from any place by road, and I am not so sure that I have a huge amount of faith in the response time of the local sheriff's department. The house is about a mile down a dead end road and a good hundred yards from the neighbors. Then there is the lake. I went this site (http://home-security.co/adt-home-security/) today and tried to figure out what an ADT monitoring plan would cost me. The big thing I am worried about is pirates actually. This house sitting about fifty feet up a slope from a huge reservoir. I have a deck boat, a boat house with a lot of fishing tackle and two jet skis down on the lake, but lifted up out of the water. I already rigged up a surveillance system, but the motion sensor is too sensitive.

Of course a lot of guys are fishing around the bait light I use for my dock, which is understandable. If I was out fishing I would throw a line under there as well. The motion sensor needs to go off when some thief is on my property, not when they are trying to get a lure untangled from some dock line or some such thing. It can not be going off every time a jet ski goes past the dock either, in fact if it was really too sensitive it might catch people on jet skis rooster tailing water up on the dock. That sort of thing will happen, especially if you got kids showing off for one another. Most of all I want people to know I have an alarm and that it is monitored.

Make More by Selling on Your Own

I was going to trade in my old car to buy a new car at the car dealership but it was not going to happen. The price that they were going to offer me for my car was too low. I was actually really depressed by the amount of money that they were going to offer me for my car. I came home and told my dad about my situation and he told me that I should go to motortrade.blog.co.uk and offer them my car to see if people would want to buy it. I thought that the people that were online were reasonable as I saw what some people were selling their cars for. It was a great thing for me to see and I knew that it would be good to just list my car and see what kind of offers that I would get from people. Read more

I Was Able to Choose My Power Company

When I first moved down south, I was surprised that I had my choice between power companies in round rock, tx. I never had this power to choose in any of the former cities I had lived in, and I have to admit that I liked having the decision in my own hands for a change. I didn’t take this lightly and just choose the first company that I found. Instead, I went online and looked at the different companies that offer this service, and then I researched each one individually.

My biggest issue was whether I wanted to have a fixed rate or a variable rate. Both had their pluses and minuses, so I had to consider each one. Read more

Spent the Day Getting the House Ready

It took us about a month and a half to get the bank to stop being a pain and give us a clear title to the new house, which was a huge pain indeed. We had sold our old house to a painter in bergen county nj and he was anxious to get started on his projects. He was going to undo a lot of our work and fix the place up as a wedding gift for his daughter. The place is perfect for her and her new husband to be. It is about ten minutes away from her job and just the perfect size for a small family. Of course I have a growing family with the wife and two kids and another on the way.

The painter and I made an arrangement and I let him do his thing while we were trying to get our stuff out of his way. I guess it was him making the accomodations, since it was technically his house. Read more

Garcinia Cambogia Really Works for Weight Loss

Garcinia cambogia is another name for a small fruit related to the tamarind. This fruit is most commonly found in Indonesia, but it is also native to Southeast Asia and India. While tamarind is a popular element in cooking (especially popular in curries), the garcinia cambogia fruit is a bit different in taste. That alone isn’t particularly remarkable about this all-natural fruit from the South Pacific.

What makes garcinia cambogia such an interesting fruit to study is the effect it can have on weight loss. Westerners are constantly seeking better, smarter, and more natural ways to lose weight and keep pounds off, and the garcinia cambogia fruit is as promising a development in this area as any natural element in recent years.

Optimizing the Hours in a Day

I have come to value the notion of budgeting time. I'm that kind of guy. The guy who budgets every facet of his life now; I once was just a miserly sort of dude who clung to his budget, his financial forecasts and pennies as if they were the only thing offering any meaning in life. Then I came across a theory which discusses the idea of budgeting time in order to optimize your financial situation in order to predict when you'll retire. To this end, I started using a dry cleaner in Paterson NJ to shave off an hour or two out of my week.

It might not seem like much but I've reached a conclusion; I can do more work, and subsequently make more money, even when I am paying others to handle smaller tasks that are negligible at best and don't require me to do them in order for them to get accomplished. Once I became aware of how much more money I would be able to make in a year with this tactic alone I hired a woman to clean my house every week - another handful of hours no longer having spent on superficial details like cleanliness.

The next step is going to be getting rid of driving myself back and forth to work entirely. I'm either going to start utilizing public transportation or go the distance and hire a driver. I believe I'll be able to accomplish some tasks during the commutes to and from work which in turn should optimize my work flow. It's just an experiment but already with the number of hours being set free during the day, I am finding myself less stressed when taking on work. I might even have to hire someone to do my cooking for me!

Started Working on a Little Plan

Of course the big problem with my plan is that it requires that I find a fairly significant source of cash to seed the operation and so far I have not really located anything which is close to ideal. The best option that seems to be easy to obtain is this online provider of cash advance loans. The problem is that the terms on the loan are pretty high in reality. In particular it is not any where near the kind of terms that I could get if a bank was willing to come through with this loan. Obviously the bank wants to secure the loan and so they would want to be able to take some stuff away from me if I did not pay them back what I borrowed from them. I have a car, but the bank would laugh at me if I offered it as collateral. In fact it is only worth any money to me because I am able to keep it running my own self.

At any rate I am still looking in to my options and thinking that the best course would be to wait and try to get in to a position where the bank is going to be willing to talk to me. That would probably mean that I would have to save up several thousand dollars of my own and get rid of my bad debts. At any rate the bank would give me the sort of rate and terms that would make sense, but if I get some sort of really disadvantageous terms on a loan, then it would make this adventure a bit untenable. You have to do the math and figure out what you risk and what you gain. In this case it is not that much.

Feel Safe in Your Home Again

When we bought our home I thought since we lived in a safe neighborhood I didn't need a security system. Plus another thing that had kept me from getting a security system was the prices. I was a little afraid of the ADT home security prices. But one break in to my home started me thinking about it.

Feeling safe in your own home is a very important thing. Up until we were robbed I guess I never really thought about how true that was. I had seen all of those commercials were people talk about how violated they felt after they were robbed, but it never really hit me until I was robbed. One day I was coming home from work and I opened the garage door to see our house door wide open. I knew there was something definitely wrong. We have cats and two dogs and I would never have left the house door open and I knew my husband wouldn't have either. When I walked into the house I was surprised what a mess the robbers had caused. They stole all of our electronics and literally torn the place up. I was so concerned for our pets, because I was worried they would have harmed them if they saw them. I could see where they broke open the back door and let themselves into our home. I was so angry, but thankful our pets were okay.

I mean we have insurance, but having insurance was not going to bring back the sense of security and our family heirlooms. Within a few days I was looking on the internet to find a security system. Thanks to your website I was able to find all of the information I needed to get a little of our security back. I don't think we will ever be the same, but at least I can sleep at night again.

Employment Agencies for Maid Services

I am looking for a new job, and I hope to find something that suits me well. I have previously found work as a maid, and that seems like it would be a good option for me again. I have not had many other jobs in my past, other than odd jobs. I guess that I should try to find an employment agency for such jobs. I have heard of frondosa city maid and employment agency and it might be the best option for me, so I will have to give them a call, to find out more information.

I do not really desire to be a maid, because it is definitely hard work, and there is a lot that is expected of you. However, it is not like I have a lot of skills, and I do not have much of an education either. As such, I do not know what other jobs that I would be qualified for. Further, I do not even know if I would like other jobs, or if they would be a better type of work than what is involved in being a maid. As such, I would probably be best off just trying to get a job doing the same stuff.

As long as I get a pay check on a regular basis, I am not going to complain very much, and that is because I need the money. I have to find a new place to live in the near future, but I will need to start to get an income, before I can start that search. I am living with a friend for the moment, but I really want to avoid wearing out my welcome, and staying too long. I hope I get a job soon, because I have been out of work for months.

They Help Mom Every Day

I never really considered my mom's age because she has always been so active. When she started slowing down, it was time for me to face the reality of the situation. While she was only in her mid 70s, she was still not able to do a lot of things that she could just a couple of years ago. I simply did not have the time to go to her house every day, so I looked into senior home care in brooklyn ny for her. I know she was worried that she would need to give up her home because she was not able to take care of herself as well as she could before. I know how much she values her independence, so I was prepared to move mountains to make sure she did not have to leave her home simply because she is getting older. She can still do things such as prepare her meals, but she did need some help with some medical issues. She is a diabetic, which means she has to take her medication on a regular basis. She also needs to have her vitals checked regularly too, and that is where the senior home care company we chose helps her every day. She never has to worry about missing a dose of medicine now, and she does not need to worry about inconveniencing anyone to come help her with some of the things that need done around the house. I think the best thing is having someone there every day, which keeps her from getting lonely. I don't even want to think about what we would need to do if this company was not able to help Mom out as much as they do. Thankfully, we will not have to find out for a very long time!

Deciding Between Getting Cable or DirecTV

The bottom line is that cable television and satellite providers have been directly competing with each other for quite some time. Within the cable company world there is not as much competition, since their setups require local networks and investing in those where other companies already exist is not very optimal. On the other hand, DirecTV is able to give service to customers almost anywhere so they are a potential threat to every cable company whether they are national or regional. Over at http://www.cable-tv.com/directv-vs-cable/ you can see a breakdown of many of the differences between cable and DirecTV.

For the most part a lot of it comes down to small differences that do not really create a clear winner in the overall picture. Anything that one company does to take a quick lead is either copied or countered by other companies, as they cannot afford to fall behind and lose customers. The bottom line is that all of them need to maintain or grow subscription numbers in order to pay off the costs of their infrastructure, so they fight tooth and nail to try and get every customer possible.

At the same time, there are differences that can make a clear choice for specific customers. Obviously a lot of it depends on the cable company that is available in your local area, as not all of them offer the same quality. In fact, DirecTV is known for providing the best customer support in the market and they have won over a lot of permanent customers by helping them out in tough situations. Another huge advantage to DirecTV is specific to NFL fans who want the Sunday Ticket package to watch every single football game of this season. Ultimately though, both sides provide great HD pictures and tons of channel packages that should cover any customer's needs.

I Just Moved Down to Texas

I just moved down to Texas and I have a job with the army base down here at Fort Hood. I have learned that you can pick your own power company down here, or at least you have different choices depending on where you live. It might be two in one place or it could more in other places. There is a web page called Choose Texas power dot org which is supposed to help you figure this stuff out, but I do not really see the difference between one power company and the other. It does not seem as though the rates that they charge would be all that different. I am sure that if one of them cut the price they were charging, then all of the others would do something very similar in reaction. It is not as though any of them are not going to be paying attention to what the others are doing. They certainly are not going to let the other guy cut your power bill by a significant margin and not react to it.

In fact I am pretty sure that they are all going to make sure that they can sell power at a price where they all make money. It is not like they have much to gain by selling it at a discount, not when that would just cause the competing power companies to match the price that they charged. I guess in theory if you had a lot more money than the other guy you might be able to run him out of a market. In that case you could sell power at an unsustainably low price until it ran the other guy out of business. Obviously once you had done that you could charge whatever the people would pay.

The Power of Texas’ Offer of Choice

With an option to choose an energy provider, moving to Texas was clearly one of the best decisions that I have made in recent years. I had a choice between three states that my employer offered me, as each state held a division where major projects were currently underway. After doing research on each state I stumbled onto www.energyproviderstexas.com which allows a resident to compare current prices between each of the available energy companies throughout Texas. It might be a small thing to you but as someone who tries to live as cheaply as possible, this coupled with the low rent found in Texas were clearly going to be the way to go.

Not that it matters too much since the vast majority of my monthly bills are being covered by my employer who wants to make sure that I am a happy camper. It's nice working for a company like this even if I am technically a contractor most of the time, except for projects like this, where they actually hire me for a few months at a time so I can gain benefits. They're the kind of employer that knows how to keep people happy and go out of their way to keep those employees on board.

I feel like Texas is similar in a way. They offer their residents the capability to choose their utilities, something that I hadn't known was possible as I had always thought that utilities didn't have anything in the way of 'competition'. Of course, I have always lived in states where there was only one or two different energy companies, water companies and so on. I never thought about it being a business and considered them more of a state or federally run entity whose sole purpose was to provide a utility for residents.

Going Bald in My 20’s

Keralove Keratin Treatment and Ethnic/ African HairLosing hair is the worst. Already I've lost more than half my hair and I'm only in my mid twenties. Genetics, it seems, is a cruel mistress and a worse prankster. Guys like me with whatever combination of facial features that I happen to have just don't look good bald. Seriously. My ears look lopsided. My whole head looks like an overly shiny beacon that would be more appropriate floating out in the bay or on a landing strip guiding planes in the night. It's terrible. Even with this scalp treatment in Singapore that I flew out to have, my hair is stubbornly refusing to grow back in the slightest.

I can't remember a time when I have been so depressed. The guys at the clinics, Doctors I'm hoping, said that I'll have to come back for several more treatments in order to see the most benefit. That's a lot of money that I'm willing to spend to have my hair back but I'm still afraid that I actually won't be able to see any improvement! Yet, I guess it's going to be worth it if it does actually succeed. I've seen and met others who have had it work for them, so why wouldn't it for me?

You would go through all of this too if you were a single guy in his 20's. It's hard enough to try and get dates as a guy with a full head of hair. Trying being the guy that's already bald! Women in my age bracket are most turned off by three things: Obesity, bad teeth and baldness. Baldness is probably one of the worst masculine traits that a guy can have. It makes you appear to be less virile, less fertile and therefore completely less appealing to females. It's the worst.
