9 Things That Will Happen When You Have A Salt Lamp At Your Home

Himalayan salt lamps are becoming extremely popular because not only are they beautiful to look at, they also have amazing health benefits. The simple flick of a switch will have you feeling better physically, mentally and emotionally in no time!

1. Your air will be cleaner

The most obvious benefit to having a Himalayan salt lamp is its incredible ability to filter the air in your home, removing dust, cigarette smoke, pollen and other contaminants in the air.

Himalayan salt lamps help filter the air by attracting water molecules and any foreign particles they are carrying, and absorb it.This is known as hygroscopy. When the lamp is turned on, the heat coming from it releases the water back into the air, but keeps all of the absorbed particles trapped inside the lamp.

2. You’ll have reduced allergy symptoms

Since Himalayan salt lamps filter microscopic particles from the air, including pollen, dust, pet dander, mold and mildew, it can really cut out a lot of allergens from the air, making it the perfect home decor addition to any one suffering from allergies.

Also, the cleaner air will help you stay healthier, and get sick less often.

3. You’ll sleep better

Every molecule is made up of atoms, and every atom is made up of three types of particles: protons (positive charge), electrons (negative charge), and neutrons (no charge). Unfortunately, positive ions in the air can make it difficult for you to sleep. That’s because positive ions have a very negative effect on our bodies, yet positive ions are all around us. Himalayan salt lamps, however, release negative ions which will neutralize the positive ions.

Keeping a Himalayan salt lamp in the bedroom can help you sleep by neutralizing the positive ions and improving the air quality. If you need complete darkness to sleep, just turn on the salt lamp for a few hours during the day and then turn it off before going to bed.

4. You’ll breathe easier

It’s also great for people who have asthma or any difficult breathing. In fact, Himalayan pink salt is really good for clearing your airways, and there are even Himalayan pink salt inhalers, which you can buy online.

5. You’ll have more energy

Positive ions are huge energy drainers. Studies have proven that being outside energizes you because there are a lot more negative ions outside. Since Himalayan salt lamps neutralize positive ions and release negative ions, you will feel a lot more energetic at home, too, when you use one.

6. You’ll have fewer headaches

Himalayan salt lamps help enhance your mood, relax you and improve your blood and oxygen supply to your brain and other organs. This not only improves your concentration, but it also helps you de-stress, gives you more energy throughout the day, and you’ll have less headaches!

7. You’ll be happier

By increasing your blood and oxygen flow to your brain, more serotonin will be released and you’ll also be happier.

Himalayan salt lamps can be purchased on Amazon as a basket of Himalayan salt, or as a block of Himalayan salt on a base.

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
