Creative Valentine's Day Date Ideas

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, have you thought of what to do withy our loved one? Some couples think it is overrated and will not celebrate, whereas some couples go overboard. It is nice to received flowers, chocolate or little gifts, but nothing beats quality time with the one you love. Some partners say, “ I don’t want anything for Valentine’s Day.” The translation behind this statement is true for many couples. That person may not want anything but your time. Memories will never grow old, where as, flowers die, chocolate becomes stale, and gifts fade meaning in time. Money does not come easy to a lot of couples. Thinking of the perfect date without spending a lot of money can be hard to do. Finding something to do with your loved one in general is also difficult to think of at times. This article is going to give you ideas besides dinner and movie that you and your loved one can try out this Valentine's Day! Some of these are creative that you have never even thought of them. Most are very affordable and will make it a time you both will not forget.

Photo Booth Fun There are many photo booths set up at different attractions in many cities. Do a quick Google search for one near you! You and your sweetheart can have a strip of fun pictures from the day! This activity will not cost too much and you will have fun making faces and being goofy with each other.

Love Run Google search 5K runs near you for Valentine’s Day. There are many going on throughout the US every weekend. If there is no run available, take a run through your local park. This is ought to set the mood for the day. Running for fun can clear your mind, and exercising will give you a lot of energy for the rest of the day.

Public Display of Affection Do this but not in a awkward way. Express you love your partner by writing it on the sidewalk or beach in a heart, or in the snow if you live in a cold area.

Pick a Number There's your destination for food. Pick a number between one and thirty. Drive around until you stop at your number, and that is the restaurant that wins. You may stop at a McDonalds, but hey that's fate! This takes the whole decision making to a new level and the suspense will make it even more enjoyable. Try this for lunch, not dinner on Valentine’s Day. Also, throw on your favorite tunes on the radio to drive and sing along to.

. Skip Dinner If you know what's good for you this Valentine’s Day, skip dinner. If you have ever tried to go to dinner on Valentine's Day, you probably learned very quickly that you should not have gone. The atmosphere can become very chaotic and the prices are usually heightened for the day of romance. Without reservations, which most places do not take reservations on Valentine's Day, you will most likely wait. If you really want to get out of the house and enjoy your honey in public, opt for dessert instead of dinner. You will also save a pretty penny.

Enjoy Some Music Somewhere local will likely have a live band playing. Many couples want to be together on Valentine’s Day and want to go out somewhere, try music! Live music is great to watch holding the one you love. Save money on dinner and instead get a couple drinks and enjoy yourselves!

Recreating your First Date Recreating your first date and remember why you are in love. Many couples get caught up in the day to day shuffles and forget why they are together. Recreate your first date and remember all those great times you had when you started dating. That is what Valentine's Day is all about. Make a memory later that night that you will never forget again.

Go For A Walk Go for a walk, but a new route this time. Many couples love to walk with each other hand in hand. Electronic devices, television, and the distractions of life are gone and you can focus on what matters, each other. This Valentine's Day, take a walk, talk, and afterwards, enjoy some hot chocolate together.

Make Dinner and Dessert, Together. Many women are used to the hustle and bustle of preparing the meal for their man. This Valentine's Day, try to cook together. Making something you both enjoy, or your favorite dishes may be cooked for you. For example, he likes steak, you like seafood, you cook the steak, he cooks the seafood.

Dip Food in Chocolate. To keep the theme of candy and flowers that is overdone on Valentine’s Day, you and your partner need to have some sort of treat! Try dipping food like fruits, marshmallows, and anything else you want into chocolate! Everything is better with chocolate. But, doing something together with it can be even more enjoyable. Who knows where the chocolate dipping can lead…

Local Sports Event. This may not be too exciting if you are not a sports fan, but it may be if your partner is. Being in a relationship you sacrifice. Try to get excited with your partner and cheer on the team with him! Enjoy some stadium food and drinks in the process. Your partner will have a great time!

I hope you enjoyed these ideas and use them. This idea of quality time seems to be fading in the every day couple. Take a look at your grandparents. Time was the essence and should be always in your relationship. Happy Valentine’s Day.

History Of Valentine’s Day

History Of Valentine’s DayA priest named Valentine believed that marriage was necessary of those couples that truly believed they were in love. He thought if they were not married they would live together in sin. Therefore, he illegally married couples, which was against what the Emperor of Britain set in place. The Roman soldiers found out about his illegal marriages and Valentine was arrested and remained a Christian, though the Emperor thought he should have become a Roman.

Because of his Christian beliefs he was sent to prison until he was sentenced to death. While in prison Valentine wrote letters that he sent to friends and family and asked to be prayed for by writing “Remember your Valentine.” The Day Since then St. Valentine has evolved into not only a statue and paintings of himself but symbols like cupids, red roses, hearts, and doves.

Valentine was killed on the 14th or the 24th of February in the year 269 or 270. History is not clear. We celebrate Valentine’s Day on February 14th in honor of St. Valentine. The Celebration and Traditions Valentine's Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France and Australia. By the middle of the 18th Century, it was common for friends and lovers of all social classes to exchange small tokens of affection or handwritten notes, and by 1900 printed cards began to replace written letters due to improvements in printing technology.

Nowadays, children all around the world celebrate Valentines Day by exchanging Valentines Day cards to classmates, even a secret crush.

Couples overbook restaurants for Valentine’s Day dates and hotels for intimate nights. Many weddings also happen on Valentine’s Day.

From the looks of the tradition, St. Valentine is most likely pleased that love is expressed that day more than any other day throughout the year.

Facts About Valentines Day (according to http://www.novareinna.com/festive/valentine.html)

Approximately one billion Valentine cards are exchanged each year...the largest seasonal card-selling occasion of the year next to Christmas.

Most Valentine's Day cards (83%) are purchased by women. However, the number of cards purchased by men (currently 17%) is gradually rising, thought by some sources to be due to the fact that men often purchase two cards for their significant others...an amusing one and the obligatory romantic one which they believe is expected of them.

Half of all consumers prefer to receive a humorous Valentine, followed by a romantic greeting (31%) and then a more risqué form of card (8.2%). More than one-third of women (36%) and 26% of males prefer to receive a romantic Valentine. 13% of males prefer a more sexy Valentine, whereas only 3.5% of women prefer this variety of card.

February 14 is the most important holiday for florists, accounting for 32% of annual sales.

73% of people who buy flowers to send on Valentine's Day are male...only 27% are female.

California produces 60% of American roses, but the vast majority sold on Valentine's Day in the United States are imported...mostly from South America.

Approximately 110 million roses...the majority of them being red...will be sold and delivered within a three-day time period during the Valentine's Day celebrations.

36% of males and 28% of females put off their Valentine's Day shopping until February 14 or the day before...64% of consumers will plan to do their shopping a week or more prior to the date.

Males tend to spend more money on Valentine's Day gifts than do females and are more likely to buy big-ticket items...the average amount spent being $95.00.

Approximately 3% of pet owners will give a Valentine's Day gift to their pet.

Alexander Graham Bell applied for his patent on the telephone on Valentine's Day in 1876.

The chief colors associated with Valentine's Day are pink, red and white. Pink is a delicate, almost innocent shade of red and is also connected with Saint Valentine, whose burial was said to have caused the pink almond tree to blossom. Red is a symbol of warmth and feeling...the color of the heart, while white represents purity and faith...a faith between two that love each other.

Social Anxiety

With holidays approaching social anxiety disorders can peak. The stress of the holidays can make many victims of social anxiety disorder feel overboard. Social Pressure Sally was invited to a work holiday party. Sally is part of a small information technology team consisting of five employees. This was a job Sally thought she would do well with because of her social anxiety disorder.

It took many years for Sally to find a job she was good at. Sally likes people, but the anxiety to talk to them overcomes her and she shuts down.

This is very common with social anxiety disorder. Many patients with this disorder want to fit in but have the fear of rejection and the fear overcomes them to the point of not being able to function.

When Sally was invited to the party, she simply declined. With treatment, Sally would be able to learn how to attend these events without the overpowering anxiety of her disorder.

Shy Kid Mallory was always known as the shy kid. Her immediate family never saw it unless they were in public. She seemed normal to everyone at her house, but in reality Mallory had a social anxiety disorder.

Mallory has one good friend in Kindergarten. Through the years, she would whisper to her friend and when she had to speak in class, she spoke so softly the teacher could barely hear her.

Mallory made it through school because was able to maintain good grades. The teachers never thought she had a problem. The true face of Mallory's social anxiety disorder came though when she was in middle school.

Once she entered middle school, kids were mean. Unfortunately, the only way she felt she would fit in was to start being "cool." Mallory started smoking cigarettes and even becoming sexual with different boys much older than she.

In high school, Mallory dropped out. She never obtained the help she needed and now she lives alone with her parents. She was never able to get a job because she was too anxious to speak to employers for interviews.

Unfortunately, with this disorder life becomes a challenge and every day is truly a struggle for these individuals.

Help was Helpful Charlie was known as a shy child. His mother never thought anything was wrong with him, but other people did. People would think he was autistic and thought things were not right. He acted fine at home, but in school barely spoke a word.

At a young age, a teacher pulled Charlie's mother into a conference. She had deep concerns for Charlie and referred them to a child psychologist.

Charlie was resistant at first. Over many years, Charlie has learned to cope so well with his disorder than it no longer effects his life in a negative way. He is able to work now as a physician. He has built his confidence to a level that is far beyond what he ever thought.

He still has a stutter with his speech at times. He has learned to slow down his thoughts and try not to let the anxiety get to him like it use to.

He does not like to speak in front of people because he will shut down and freeze. He enjoys being alone, but with his disorders knows that even if he is in a small group it helps him.

Getting help with social anxiety will help the patient realize how to cope with their disorder. Medication is not always the answer, but help is needed if you suspect you have social anxiety disorder.

 

Doulas in labor

I was asked by a client to write something about doulas in my experience as a labor nurse. I have been a labor nurse for over eight years. In the eight years, I have met many different kinds of people. Doulas are helpful in my area for patients who need constant support.

Pain in subjective and can only be told how bad it is by the person experiencing it. Being able to get through contractions is difficult to any woman. Doulas are there to help you get through that pain. Staying in control is very crucial to the mother and the baby’s overall health during the delivery process.

Husbands and significant others are wonderful to have as support with a doula. The doula will help guide the father on how to help the mother of his child. Many men do not know what to do, nor do they like to see their significant other in such agonizing pain. Doulas can help the mother focus on each contraction.

A doula is better than relying on hospital staff. As a labor nurse, you will not be my other patient of the day. There are lots of laboring mothers and unfortunately the nurses are not allowed to stay at your bedside the entire time.

Investing in a doula will assure you constant contact and constant coaching through your journey of labor.

5 C's of Sales People

I write for a small business online magazine over at http://susanjboston.com/smallbusinessnews/ and thought I would share an article I wrote about what to look for in a sales person.

 

The 5 C’s of a Successful Sales Representative

 

Your business needs sales people like every business. Most people hate sales people because they are pushy and annoying. Businesses thrive on great sales people, so how do businesses make it without being pushy and annoying?

The five C’s of what to look for in a sales person can help you choose the right candidate for your small business.

The 5 C’s of a Successful Sales Representative

Confidence
The sales person you choose should be confident. Believing in his or herself and their ability to make a sale is half the battle. See how your applicant presents himself or herself during a job interview. It is normal to be nervous during a job interview, but they should be able to hide it. If they look nervous or messy, they may do the same for potential clients.

Customer seeking
This is a personality trait that some people do not have. Being customer seeking means you must be outgoing and you have to make an impression on a social interaction. A sales person should make their presence last after the conversation is over. Think about the person you are hoping will join your team, you usually remember them long after the job interview.

Caring
When a sales person seems to care about a client, it can go along way. Establishing a rapport with a client will drive your company to not only expand business from you, but will refer you as well. A good sales person asks the client about their personal life and builds trust in them.

Competitive
A sales person can't win at sales if they have no drive. Being passionate about the product is going to make the person competitive. Find out why the sales applicant wants part of your team. Think about how your product could be sold by him.

 

Creativity
Being a good sales person means becoming creative with your sales approach, without being annoying. Many sales people come up with products to give to business's that would help them. For example, in a bank to get your sale, they may set up a booth for "free fingerprinting for your kids" in hopes to lure in the family crowd.

 

I see all these qualities in my husband, hence him being a good sales person. Now, myself, I am not so sure. I am a nurse and I'll stick with that for now. ;-)

ADN vs BSN the big debate

From: http://www.nursingexplorer.com/adn-vs-bsn-the-big-debate

 

ADN Vs BSN the big debate

Obtaining your BSN will open many doors for you in your nursing career. A BSN makes nurses more desirable to employers who may want to hire someone who has advanced education. Most nurses after they have worked the floors for many years get burnt out and need a slower pace or feel they need a change. With a BSN, you can move into management. Management is highly recognized and can lead to a large pay increase. You earn respect from employees and learn to be a leader.

An ADN teaches the nursing student fundamental and basics of nursing. Those include creating care plans and performing everyday nursing skills. With a BSN, the nurse has to think more outside the box, with creditable research, leadership, theory, and public health, which will, in turn, make the nurse more of a critical thinker, which will carry over into her practice. Therefore, patients will be safer. As a nurse with a BSN, you will become a critical thinker advancing you in everyday nursing tasks and avoiding deadly errors.

Ideally, going to school immediately for a BSN is smart. Though, a lot of adult learners want to make a little money first. The advice for that learner is to never stop. Once the nurse starts their role, they will get comfortable and it my take years to open a textbook again. Do not be the nurse who always says they will be going back to school, jump in!

You mean I will not have a job?

There was a huge shortage of nurses years ago, but now, it has been less and less of a demand. Nurses aren't needed as much, therefore the BSN is preferred. It is becoming more of the trend to have a BSN to be considered for any position, especially teaching, specialties, and school nurses. If you have a long time until retirement, many institutions are requiring BSNs to practice in the future.

In the future, too, the nurses who obtain an ADN know what is forthcoming and already will graduate or will be in the process of completing their BSN. Furthermore, being stuck in an ADN position may be comfortable now, but the future is coming and the BSN will be a necessity for many jobs. Across the United States, hospitals strive to become Magnet status, which does not hire ADN nurses.

The Magnet Recognition Program recognizes healthcare organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice. Consumers rely on Magnet designation as the ultimate credential for high quality nursing. Developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), Magnet is the leading source of successful nursing practices and strategies worldwide. Many hospitals want this because it will show that their patients will receive the best possible care.

The Benefits of the BSN

Most schools require a BSN to obtain an MSN. MSN is required for any nurse practitioner. If you have higher goals, a BSN is the way to start achieving those goals. Obtaining your BSN is a stepping stone to many opportunities! Management is the first opportunity many nurses think of and therefore obtain their higher degree. Outside of management a lot of insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and research jobs come open to BSN graduates. Another opportunity that a nurse with an ADN can not touch is being a clinical instructor for your local college. Those opportunities are great for extra money.

Money is always a motivator. The pay increase for a BSN versus an ADN is not too spectacular, unless you move up the ladder in your company. Those nurses with BSNs in management will make more money just because they are in a management role. As for a staff nurse though, BSNs and ADN graduates are comparable usually. The pay increase will ultimately be the decision mainly of your employer. 

Four year degree nurses are looked at differently than two year degree nurses. They are held to a much higher standard in society. Most patients would prefer the nurse who had to learn for an extra two years. Outside of just patients, telling the general public that you have a Bachelor's degree shows intelligence among the average individual.

Overall, the benefits to obtaining a BSN are spectacular. You will hear from nurses that it is not worth it. It is not true. Obtaining a BSN is going to guarantee you a job and most of all job security. Everyone has a family, bills, and personal issues to attend to, that's why we work. Let your career take care of you with a little work on your part, you can be done quickly or as slow as you want.

 

Questions Before Starting The Business You Love

From Small Business Online Magazine Questions Before Starting The Business You Love

Now that you have thought of a business you may want to think a little

deeper before jumping right in. This article will help walk you though a

good amount of questions to get your business started on the right path.

Franchise or Independent?

Depending on the business you choose, there may be a franchising

opportunity instead of starting on your own. This article: The Pros

and Cons of Franchising can help you deceiver the advantages and

disadvantages of franchising.

One Product or a Service

This is important in the scheme of long term business. If you are

for example a writer, do you offer writing only for your niche like

healthcare? Or do you offer a variety of services from SEO writing,

copywriting, and content writing? If you are a baker, do you offer cake

or maybe cakes and other treats?

Using services can give you more money, but it will also require you to

perfect your skills in the area where you lack.

How Will You Be Known?

Are you going to set up a business website or are you going to set a

retail store location? Both are helpful in whatever you decide to do, but

watch your spending. There are many small businesses that fail because

the upfront costs were skyrocketing their intended budget.

Marketing is key when you have your own business. Sales may not be

your favorite thing to do, and it doesn’t have to be. Selling yourself by

promoting can create opportunities to sell. Networking with peers,

coworkers, and family can get your business off to a great start!

and organize them as they come in.

Reviewing a Camera Sling Strap

Photography is the fastest growing and one biggest small businesses today. Why is this? It is because anyone can buy a camera and figure out how to use it. If you are looking to make your photography life a little easier, look no further than to this camera strap called the Sling Strap Camera. Using the sling has helped me bring my photography to the next level. I am now able to multitask like never before. Taking my camera with me before was difficult because I was always afraid I was going to break it. With this easy to use sling strap, I am able to carry my camera, my child, and a diaper bag making my life as a working mom easier.  

I received this product as a gift from my sister who knows my love of taking pictures. My love for photography started when my son was a baby. I loved the newborn pictures my friend took and thought, "I could do this." Last year at this time, I started newborn photography. With this specific profession, I am constantly putting my camera down and then picking it up, Due to positioning the newborn and calming the small baby, I have no choice. Now, this product has let me calm the baby and shoot faster than ever before. Families are happy because I can get to their child faster without putting my camera down on the floor.

 

My customers will ask me, “aren’t you afraid the lens is going to break using the strap?" This product protects your camera giving you the ability to multitask. As a mother of two, multitasking is my job. As many photographers know, multitasking is essential to get the perfect shot.

 

The other great feature is the comfort of the strap. I have had many products that I cannot get comfortable with the strap. I am a small woman, with a small build, so inevitably everything is big on me. This worked better than others because of simply, comfort.

 

The price is extremely affordable, which is why I will be buying some for my photography friends. It is made of tough material, yet stylish enough for guys and girls to carry. It fits most DSLR cameras, not only the highly priced professional cameras.

 

If you are looking for a gift this holiday season, giving the gift of a camera strap will be original and will make the photographer think that you thought of them personally.
