Sitting at Your Computer is straining..

We have all probably heard this, sitting at a computer all day can ruin your muscles, make you gain weight , cause carpel tunnel syndrome and so on and so on.Β  And it is true, sitting at a computer all day can strain your muscles and give you poor posture, it can cause back pain, wrist pain, leg pain, all sorts of pains. So how do you deal if your job demands you sit at a computer all day??

08

Unfortunately, with technology taking over, there is not much we can do to prevent from sitting at a computer, However, we can try to sit more correctly, but sitting up straight and not slouching over. Also, taking frequent but short breaks will help your eyes re focus, as well as help your body get less tense.

There are also other things outside of work you can do. After you are finished with work, try heading to the local gym for a Yoga class, or just getting in some type of exercise in will help your muscles not get tensed up and tight.

While you are on the clock, try standing to get some work done, choose a desk that is comfortable to sit and stand at or if laptops are an option take your work with you to a nearby standing desk. Ask your boss forΒ  a more ergonomic chair (if it is in budget), or bring your own if you can.

Unfortunately, we can not get away from the computer, but there ARE ways we can help prevent the strain. Walking around the office and making some casual conversation with your co-workers will not only get you well known throughout the office, it will help your muscles relax throughout the day. Just try not to get the conversation too personal and keep it work focused as much as possible, you do not want to get in trouble with your boss!!

Do you have any tips on how to keep your posture at work?

The team of Motives Mavens have created some incredible looks for you to create yourself. Every girl deserves to look her very best with some makeup.

With motives cosmetics you can be sure that you are wearing hypo-allergenic and paraben free makeup. Some of those over the counter makeups, contain some harsh chemicals that do not belong in your makeup, yet alone on your skin.

Not only are motives cosmetics made with the highest quality of ingredients, the price point is right there with MAC’s price point. Oh and some of MAC’s makeup contains these harmful ingredients. Just how does Motives do it?

Well, for one Motives does not spend money on advertising nor do they spend to have their product displayed in shelves. They rely on Motives consultants across the globe to promote and sell the products, paying a very generous commission as well. Therefore, Motives has more money spent on the product research than they do on advertising.

Secret to Sexy Lips

Almost every girl wants to have sexy lips, and every guy wants their girl to have sexy lips.

If you are looking for the one thing you can do to get sexy lips, I am sorry but there is not just one magical thing you can do to have those sexy lips πŸ™‚ Like with most things in life , there are several factors that will give you Sexy , healthy and full lips πŸ™‚

One of them being, of course Nutrition! Yes eating a diet rich in Omega-3’s can help you achieve fuller sexier lips! So cut up that Avocado and cook that salmon, get that Omega-3 girl!

You will also need a nice lip treatment to help keep the moisture in your lips. I absolutely love Motives’ 40fy Lip Treatment!

This lip treatment even tastes like Peppermint!! Your man will love it! πŸ™‚ This amazing treatment will re-plump your lips as well as nourish and moisturise your pout, giving your a full and sexy pout πŸ™‚

 

Once you moisturise your lips, you want to add some color to your lips (and what woman doesn’t want to a little color on her lips). The problem with most lipsticks, is your lips become dried after awhile and the color rubs off within seconds. With Motives lip colors you will be sure to have a long-lasting color for all day if you want! Here are some Sexy lip looks to try:

For a “Natural” look try this one:
