Natural Relief For Painful Sinuses
(http://ow.ly/npsP30nhnaI)

Many natural at-home remedies can help to ease the discomfort and pain of a sinus infection. Placing a warm washcloth over your nose and cheeks while laying down is one great way to clear your sinus passageways. You can also stand in the shower while the hot water is running to experience the soothing benefits. Staying hydrated is another simple method of moistening your sinuses and loosening congestion. Try to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water, and avoid caffeinated or alcoholic drinks!

What To Expect From A Pap Smear
(http://ow.ly/Uj3j30mW962)

Pap smears play a vital role in catching cervical cancer early on. Women are advised to get routine pap smears (every three years) starting at age 21. Pap smears might seem intimidating, but take only a few minutes total! Your doctor will insert an instrument called a speculum into your cervix to get a sample of your cervical cells. The sample will then be sent to a lab, where they'll be carefully inspected for any suspicious cells.

The good news, cervical cancers is one of the few types that's totally preventable, so you're doing a huge favor to your health by visiting the doctor for your routine pap smear.

Stress Management Tips To Boost Wellbeing
(http://ow.ly/vQu930mW95Z)

It's no secret that chronic stress leads to damaging health troubles like anxiety, heart disease, depression, and much more. What's important isn't trying to "eliminate" stress completely, which is a likely impossible goal, but rather learning effective ways of managing it to keep your body, mind, and spirit healthy. Positive self-talk is one great way to reverse a harmful spiral into negativity. Doing an activity you love is a fun way to slash stress and get feel-good endorphins flowing naturally. So whether it's meeting a friend, taking a walk, doing yoga, drawing, writing, or another favorite hobby, it's essential to take time to yourself and do something that makes you feel good.
