Wrinkles. What are they? Are they good or bad? Some people say you earn them, while others act as if they are the beginning to the end. Regardless of our personal view on botox, the fact remains that its cosmetic usage is on the rise, and probably not in the demographic you were expecting.
In today’s infographic brought by Cosmos Clinic, it is found that 1 in 10 cosmetic procedures are performed on men. This not-so-new trend is on the rise in Australia. Though botox is used mainly for the prevention and diminishing of “age lines,” it does have some pseudo-medical uses. Botox can be used in the treatment of chronic migraines, as well as for treating facial spasms as the compound is ultimately a muscle relaxer.
Botox is the number one cosmetic treatment requested in Australia. Treating the signs of aging is becoming more expensive in this country. The elements are harsh on skin down under and it’s interesting to learn that male miners are one of the fastest growing recipients of injectable cosmetic treatments.
Whether you’ve got smile lines, migraines, eyelid spasms, crows feet or the desire to look young, botox could be right for you. Either way, you’ve got to love yourself and what you got. [Cosmos Clinic]

One should always take personal inventories to assess personal growth over time. We are all wanting to elevate our status and be better people than we are today. Dreams and goals are easy to make. Following through to achieve them is what’s difficult. The amount of time we take to find what we want to do with our lives is extensive. For most, that answer is found by living through life’s experiences.
But what if we could shorten that learning curve? We would have to start from within our own minds. This infographic sheds light on the subject of worker disengagement, and student’s lack of direction from the time they enter college. eLearners suggests that we save time and energy searching for what we want, by turning to our Myers-Briggs personality style results. Your personality is one of four basic types. From those four, your specific personality is accompanied by an ideal job.
It is only natural to do what comes instinctively. By acknowledging our inclinations, we can learn how to live more effectively. If you are in the area that feels most comfortable and compatible with your personality, then you are going to become an expert. As always, you know what is best for you. Give it some thought. Are you on the right career path? [via]

Traveling to Australia any time soon? I know I am… Or at least wish I was. I’m fascinated with the country, the people, the wildlife, and the lifestyle seems right up my ally. I’ve always felt a weird connection with Australia, because I feel like its kind of like where I live: Texas. We both have swamps, deserts and mountains, almost every environment, it’s huge, it’s hot, and it’s full of deadly animals. Yeah, I think my Texas blood would enjoy a trip across the Pacific, but getting there is another story.
Customs is something a lot of us have gone through. Sometimes it’s easy; sometimes it’s four hours in a warehouse in Mexico with no air conditioning. (I was only 12, but I can’t forget that experience.) Declaring items is normal for all countries, but every country is slightly different. Of course, there’s the normal no drugs, weapons, or bugs, but the Aussies have some more specific forbidden things. Queensland strictly forbids used beekeeping equipment – with good reason, hand-me-down keeper suites just don’t fit with the Queensland vibe. Another quirky item on the banned list is banana-planting material. I’m not sure if shovels fall under this, but I’m certain I can plant a banana with a shovel.
Although I wrote this from a visitor perspective, you Aussies are the ones who need to pay even more attention. Exotic plants, animals, or food you brought back from your trip abroad might end up in the trash. Remember these rules, and your souvenirs will stay with you. [Allianz]

Breathing is something we all do without really even thinking about it. It is part of our survival, and we really only take notice of it when someone reminds us of our breathing or something is obstructing it – like stress or a health issue.
Breathing, when controlled, can have all sorts of health-improving impacts. It is undoubtedly a mental game, and learning to incorporate healthy breathing techniques might not be too easy. No one is a guru in one night. But think of the self control you will gain by learning how to harness your breath and turn that power into smooth, calculated breaths.
When you are breathing right, your heart rate is healthier, there is less stress on your body, and you are able to do more because there is more oxygen in your body fueling you to go further, both mentally and physically. A health newsletter from Harvard finds that the way we breath can also be socially constructed. The desire for washboard abs and being thin force many to breathe shallowly and in their chest. Simply breathing like that adds to stress and anxiety just because you are not getting sufficient oxygen. Let those bellies hang out and breathe people!

Ever wished you were Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean? Or wished you could scream at the top of your lungs: “Why is all the rum gone?!” with the look and demeanor to back it up? Well, with the help of today’s infographic, you just might be able to achieve your lifelong dream of becoming a real life pirate.
Step 1. No matter how proud you are of your 20-20 vision, you’re going to have to be willing to lose that mini conversation confidence booster of “Oh, yeah I have 20-20 vision.” Surgical removal of one eye is encouraged for this step. Proceed to cover empty eye socket, with eye patch of your choice. Warning: You may experience blurred vision and/or excessive pain for a few days.
Step 2. Although you may love your hands as well, if you want to really succeed and stand out in the world of piracy, you’re going to have to make a sacrifice. Only one hand allowed. Look on the bright side, at least you’ll always have a place to hang your keys, with a hook for a hand!
Step 3. “Saw off leg and replace with chair leg of choice.” Probably the most crucial aspect of the entire process. Only diehards lose a leg for the dedication to a life exploring the seven seas.
Step 4. Now for the icing on the cake. Knock out two or three of your front teeth. There are many different methods for this step, but the most highly recommended is chewing on rocks. It just adds the cherry-on-top to the whole pirate image.
Well, now that you have the tools to finally turn your life around and embark on outrageous, barbarous, booze-filled adventures, all that’s left to do is complete these simple steps, and you’ll be ready in no time!
