Better Sleep: These Viewers Learn How To Nix Morning Grogginess

We all have those days when lack of sleep takes its toll. We discover during a big client meeting that our shoes don’t match. We forget to cancel the babysitter. More than anything, we just wish we could crawl back into bed! Holistic pharmacist and author Sherry Torkos recently appeared on the NBC’s San Antonio Living to discuss some common underlying causes to sleep issues. We were excited that she spent time describing how, for many people, better sleep may be possible by using Mute.

Poor sleep may be common, but it’s not something we should ignore. “I talk to patients every day [who] are not getting the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep,” Torkos commented. “Some people are just skimping by on four or five hours and let’s face it, you’re tired the next day, your memory doesn’t work well, you feel in slow motion.” She added that there are even possibly serious health effects: increased risk of heart disease, some cancers, weakened immune systems and weight gain.

Before reaching for over-the-counter or prescription sleep aids, Torkos suggested that audiences address any underlying sleep issues. She also reviewed natural options for better sleep, such as Mute. It is estimated that about 45 percent* of normal adults snore at least occasionally. If you or your partner snores, it could be keeping you awake at night. According to Torkos, “Snoring doesn’t just affect the partner, but the person who’s snoring also has disrupted sleep.”

When snoring is exacerbated by congestion or a deviated septum, using Mute may quiet the noise so both partners get better sleep. Mute is a soft, nasal dilator that is inserted into the nose to open the airway and ease snoring. “There’s three different sizes, small, medium, and large. You can actually get trial packs,” stated Torkos. The trial packs contain all three sizes, so you can find out which size fits you best. “It instantly opens up the airways,” said Torkos.

In one study, 75 percent** of partners reported a reduction in snoring when Mute was used. It’s a better option than elbowing your partner during the night. According to Torkos, “It can be a marriage saver for some people!”

If, as was host Claudia Garofalo, you’re excited to try Mute tonight, you’ll be happy to discover it can be found at most major pharmacies. Use our store locator to find Mute, sleep better and feel better.

Life Insurance for a Family of One

We spend a lot of time talking about how couples, families and businesses can protect their financial futures with life insurance. But what about if you are single—do you need life insurance, too?

There are those people who have no children, no one depending on their income, no ongoing financial obligations and sufficient cash to cover their final expenses. But how many of those people do you really know? And, more importantly, are you one of them?

I think it’s important, then, to illustrate how a life insurance purchase can be a smart financial move for someone who is single with no children. Asking yourself these three questions can help you get at the heart of the matter:

Do you provide financial support for aging parents or siblings?
Do you have substantial debt you wouldn’t want to pass on to surviving family members if you were to die prematurely?
Did family members pay for your education?
Don’t Take My Word for It

Life insurance is an excellent way to address these obligations, and in the case of tuition, reimburse family members for their support. But don’t just take my word for it. Instead, “do your own math.” This Life Insurance Needs Calculator can help you quickly understand if there is a need—a need you might not be aware of—that could be easily addressed with life insurance.

In addition to addressing any financial obligations you might have, the current economic climate has made permanent life insurance an attractive means to help you build a secure long-term rate of return for safe money assets. The cash value in traditional life insurance can provide you with money for opportunities, emergencies and even retirement.

For young singles, keep in mind that you have youth on your side. I don’t mean to sound trite. Instead, I’d like you to think about the fact that purchasing life insurance is very affordable when you’re young and allows you to protect your insurability for when there is a future need—perhaps, in time, a spouse and children.

While all of these reasons are valid, the most important reason for you to consider life insurance may be the peace of mind you’ll have knowing that your financial obligations will be taken care of should anything happen.

How Web Design is Changing – The Evolution of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

Change is the only constant in this entire universe. Even the world of web is not exempted from this cycle of change. If we take a look at the websites and the design of these websites, there has been always a change and all our latest developments are a result of this change. Look at the evolution of websites and you will realize how far the technology has gone in offering us the best of solutions.

The once static websites have evolved into dynamic ones and there is no waiting required for response and communication to take place. You have all your solutions at your fingertips. A number of online businesses, their websites and out-of-the-box ideas to impress customers are competing hard to make things easier for us. Carousels, hamburger menus, single page websites and the lists go on; everything is paving the way to develop a great business-customer experience.

When you have a customer-focused business, there is no looking back. How can we determine a business is customer-centered or not?

It depends on how well you treat your customers. Very simple, isn’t it? But, when it comes to the world of web, there are certain things that you must be taking into account before you work on creating an adorable user experience.

our website and the flow that it takes your customers through matters a lot when it comes to ensuring and offering a great customer experience over the web. The user experience is something that determines whether they will come back or not.

We are all striving to offer the best of experiences over the web. We have everything that makes it easier starting from responsive websites to omni-marketing channels. But, then, even this needs to change or let us say, all this will be soon replaced with real time experience.

Everything is changing. The world of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality is overshadowing all the existing trends of the web and will soon be fostering upon offering the best of user experience to its people.

The emergence of Virtual Reality
Jaron Lanier is the brains behind the so-called Virtual Reality and I am unsure of how many among my readers are aware of the fact that it’s been here starting from the 80’s.

Now what exactly is Virtual Reality?

It could be the recreation of an artificial, computer-generated simulation or real-life situation wherein the user is traveling in real time experiencing the realistic feel through their senses (eyes and ears).

Hardly, there is anyone not familiar with Facebook’s Oculus that is the show stealer amongst the VR equipments that are available. The VR as you know is usually transmitted or experienced fully through devices that are adorned as a headset and can be used in either of the following ways:

Firstly, you can use these for creating a real-life like situation and then, practicing in the scenario to equip yourself for facing what lies ahead in the future.

Secondly, this can be used for beautifying the experience of imaginary but real situations, such as entertainment or games that include video games, 3D movies and even the games that you play on your computer.

Augmented Reality
Now you have the imagination that is brought closer; when you have a technology that unveils a layered series of improvisation over the computer generated strategies that has been mounted on a visually imagined reality bringing life to it offering the people with a more enhanced interactive option, the scenario changes and you have the Augmented Reality before you.

Here, you have digitization being developed further; while AR is usually accessible via apps that can be used on the Smart devices composing together the digital elements from the real world such that they complement one another providing the best user experience.
