Reduce Hip Pain by Correcting Anterior or Posterior Pelvic Tilt

Inactivity and prolonged sitting can lead to weak, deconditioned muscles that fail to hold your pelvis in the proper angle. Without adequate exercise and physical activity, the leg muscles, gluteal muscles, abdominals and erector spinae muscles become inactive. This allows the pelvis to "fall" forwards or backwards as it rests on your hip joints, resulting in anterior pelvic tilt or posterior pelvic tilt. This plants the seed for hip pain and lower back pain, as the biomechanics of the hip joints and vertebral joints are altered causing abnormal weight distribution on the joint surfaces. This leads to accelerated wear and tear-- osteoarthritis in the hips, and degenerative joint disease in the lumbar spine with increased susceptibility to disc herniations and spinal stenosis. If you have anterior or posterior pelvic tilt, these exercises and stretches can correct them and guard you against hip and spine degeneration.

Pattern Pants Women — Pants Pattern Alterations

Pattern Pants Women — Pants Pattern Alterations

Very interesting article “Last week in class I tried on the muslin made from the pants sloper, which was drafted up from my measurements. I think it's worth repeating my professor's words of warning: even a sloper drafted to your measurements isn't going to be perfect right off the bat, because the way those numbers are distributed is different on every person. Depending on whether you carry your weight in the front, side, or back, a 40-inch hip measurement could mean several very different things. One's legs could be 25 inches long, but the angle at which they come out of your hip, the amount of padding on one's inner thigh, and even the way one typically stands can all make a standard draft look terrible, even if it's based on actual body measurements. Still, that said, my muslin looked pretty good for a first try -- definitely better than all the vintage 60s pants patterns I've tried in the past! We all had to take turns changing into our muslins and standing on the tabletops and our professor walked around telling our group members what to pin and cut into to get the fit right. What helped a lot for seeing where to make alterations was having the grainline, high hip, low hip, knee, and calf lines basted in. That way, we could see where things weren't hanging plumb or perfectly parallel to the floor all the way around.”

Bottle garden idea

I absolutely love this gardening idea. Very good gardening ideas for small gardens. I want to do it on my balcony.
The first time I saw it on Youtube. I was really shocked.
Now I find on internet this Filipino garden called JoJo.
Here JOJO with a wide variety of plastic bottles in order to build a strong bottle garden, not only species. Self sufficiency has become a near model of learning for students and residents. Also make him a plastic bottle on a network of people to grow vegetables.
You can set them up on their sides and affix them to walls, or simply lay them down flat. Raised self made flower beds are also a good idea.
These look really interesting.
