Thanks to superstars like Kim Kardashian or the Queen Bee herself–Beyonce–having a round, firm and voluptuous backside is in vogue.

Every women wants a big sexy “bubble butt.”

This particular body part even has it’s own anthem. Bubble Butt by Major Lazer is the official salute to big booties everywhere.

Besides being able to stop traffic, fill out your favorite pair of jeans or look great in yoga pants, there are some real benefits to having a toned and tight tush.

Benefits of having a firm “bubble butt”:

The glutes are the fitness center of the body.  They are the largest muscle group and are involved in just about every lower body movement. Strong glutes provide the following functional benefits:

  1. Prevention of knee and back pain
  2. Improved athletic performance and overall mobility
  3. Better regulation of menstrual flow
  4. Reduced risk of injuries
  5. Self confidence boost

The Bubble Butt Workout for Women created by Vitality Advocate shows you how to lift, firm and shape your booty in five simple moves:

  1. Deep Squats
  2. Straight & Bent Leg Cross Raises
  3. Kick Squats
  4. Single Leg Bridges
  5. Side Squats

This Bubble Butt Workout should be done twice a week and can be modified to suit your individual needs. You can increase the intensity by:

  • Adding weight by holding dumbbells
  • Increasing or decreasing the speed of your reps
  • Shortening the amount of rest time between sets
  • Alternating the order of the exercises

When doing the Bubble Butt Workout, pay special attention to your form. Doing the movements incorrectly could put you at risk for injuries and slow your results.

When doing squats, try to ensure your knees stay behind your toes and you push through your heels. A common mistake made during this movement is shifting the weight too far forward and pushing through the toes. That small variation adds pressure too the knees and shifts the focus to the quads instead of the glutes.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
