REBLOGS APPRECIATED

Woozi: Our fans want us to do a dark concept but idk how we could without losing our original image

Vernon: ok hear me out

Vernon: we wear our usual sweaters and take a bunch of pictures

Vernon: …..but we edit the pictures in black and white

Woozi: what’s so cool about that?

Vernon: there’s nothing edgier than staying warm and toasty in a cold and dark environment. Think about it. Preventing the common cold AND serving looks? Battling the influenza AND our raging emotions? Taking a stand and saying: hey, we may be cute but you know what’s not? Acute Bronchitis. The black and white filter is practically screaming that our bodies may be warm but our hearts aren’t. The pure cinnamontography of it all.

Woozi: Vernon, you madman, you absolute genius-

Cold remedies and tips

I am currently sick af and thought I’d use this time to give some great remedies for colds.

Aromatherapy: I actually got an aromatherapy diffuser for Christmas, and I have been using peppermint oil to help clear my sinuses. There are all sorts of oils that you can use that help when your sick, just look on Pinterest!

Use shower melts too, you can pick up a shower vapor tablet at CVS and take a warm shower to open up your sinuses. Plus, you always feel better when you’re clean and fresh, especially after laying in bed all day.

I like using my mint face scrub, which does the same thing as the peppermint oil in my diffuser. It makes me feel like I can breathe better.

Take Emergen-C if you think you’re likely to get sick. Tho these are for more preventative measures, it has something crazy like over 1000% of your daily vitamin C, and other vitamins to help prevent a cold.

DRINK WATER. DRINK WATER. DRINK WATER. And drink orange juice!

Try to stay away from dairy if your throat is sore. I like to eat a lot of soup, fruit, and rice when I’m sick.

Sleep!!! I know you want to go out, or have to go to work, but call out and get your rest, because your body needs it. Lay in bed and watch tv or read and sleeeeep all day. And if someone covers your shift, don’t be stingy and cover theirs in the future. Help each other out.

Keep lights dim to avoid headaches and migraines

Tan alka-seltzer plus cold formula!!! I know it tastes like shit, but it helps with symptoms. Zicam also helps with cold symptoms and doesn’t taste as bad.

Another thing, DON’T PANIC about stuff you need to get done or should be doing. You need to REST. I was so busy during Christmas, but as soon as the day after Christmas hit I woke up sick, and had no energy to do anything on my massive to do list. I got a little anxious about it, but I realized I needed to let my body rest!

Use Energy to Create Warmth

It’s the easiest first step into energy work, as any scientist and idiot can tell you energy = heat. Here’s a step by step guide on how to use it for yourself, in the way that I do.

1. First, even if you’re inside or it’s a cloudy day; imagine the sun. Bright and yellow and burning in the sky.

2. Imagine it’s beating down on your back.

3. Now, picture rays of light being sucked in through your back and into your veins.

4. Picture it flow through you to wherever you need to feel warm. Focus on the area.

5. Congrats, you should be warm!

Tips: It helps to stand up straight, raise up your chin, and focus your breathing

Omega Children Headcanons

-Omega children are generally petite and quiet but very intelligent

-Despite being small they actually eat a lot of food in one sitting, sometimes even more than Alphas

-They love baggy clothes, often times Omega children will wrap up in one of their parents sweaters or bathrobes. The softness and the parental scent comforts them

-A little cluster of Omega children talking about their future Alphas and being all red faced and embarrassed about it but gushing nonetheless

-Small Omega nests filled with teddy bears and nursery quilts

-Being very cuddly with their Omega and Beta friends

-Omega children sometimes prefer their Alpha parent, but they always share a close bond with their Omega parent

-They are even more sensitive to the cold than adult Omegas and are often dressed very warmly to prevent a cold

-Some parents preferring to homeschool their Omega children to keep them safer

-Always trying hard to help their parents do things and beaming with pride whenever they are praised

Fixing her scarf to prevent any cold air seeping through her jacket, Mirabelle then picked up her coffee for a quick sip, before returning at the task at hand. It was a chilly afternoon as she sat on a park bench, doing her usual people watching to pass the time, but on top of that she was sketching whatever and who ever was in her line of vision. The scenery was already drawn out on her sketchbook and it seems that she had focused on a family of four playing and looking unified as ever. “Must be nice.” she said out loud as she took a good look at the finished product. 

Her tone had a slight bitterness to it due to the underlying resentment of what she could have had, if life didn’t play her the way it did. However, Mirabelle knew that everything happened for a reason and that she had eventually moved on from it (or most of it to be exact). Snapping out of her thoughts, her attention immediately diverted over to her left as she felt a presence there. “Need a seat?” she politely asked while moving her coffee cup to the other side and making some room for them to sit. “Here you go, I apologize for hogging the whole thing. Please, make yourself comfortable, I don’t bite.” 

i was at model united nations today and yesterday...

and oh my god it was like i’d walked into a hetalia world meeting

russia kept talking about the ‘poisonous western influence’, ‘stupid capitalists’, and that everyone should support ‘mother russia’

people kept talking over canada, to the point that the chair (the leader of the comittee) had to literally get up and say ‘CANADA IS TRYING TO TALK STOP IGNORING CANADA’

and my personal favourite was when we were doing role-call and when it got to denmark no-one replied, so the chair was like “denmark? denmark? is denmark here?” but really denmark was on the other side of the room talking to norway, and then norway was like “shut up they’re calling your name” but denmark just kept talking to norway so the committee chair got up and shouted “DENMARK STOP ANNOYING NORWAY AND PAY ATTENTION” 

i was wheezing in my seat

i was representing england, and i spent like 90% of the time trying to prevent another cold war

it was definitely an experience

Vitamin C Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

The first week of 2015 is shaping up to be a frigid one, with the National Weather Service reporting bitterly cold temperatures and snow moving across large swaths of the northern U.S.

When the mercury falls, many people start thinking about getting sick. One of the first things they turn to in order to avoid the misery of the common cold or flu is vitamin C. Though many studies have shown that most people see little benefit from taking the vitamin to decrease the incidence and severity of the common cold, the public gulps the stuff down when the temperature plummets.

Reviewing the current research out there, the NIH’s National Center for Complimentary and Integrative Health says taking vitamin C does not prevent colds and only slightly reduces their length and severity. The best chance a person has of not catching the flu, meanwhile, is to get the yearly influenza vaccination since there is no conclusive evidence that taking any supplement is useful.
