How to Become More Confident in Public

Lifestyles - 3 hours 6 min ago

(NewsUSA) - What's holding you back? You know, that reason you always have to drag a sidekick with you when you go to parties, or why you'll never try parasailing even though you know you'd have a blast.

Now imagine for a second that those reasons suddenly disappeared. Imagine a life where you feel more confident in public. Imagine that you have the confidence to try that new sport with your friends, to take the riskier business deal or to ask for the raise we both know you deserve.

Is it possible to beat your own insecurities? We think so. So much so, actually, that we've listed a few ways that you can break out of your insecure cycle and start feeling more confident, today.

Stand Tall

Turns out Mom was onto something when she nagged you about poor posture. It is now a proven fact that great posture equals greater confidence. So, stand tall. Use your body to trick your mind, and before long, you'll be one inch closer to a more confident version of you.

Play the Mental Game

Think about that one moment that you really rocked it. We know you have at least one. Like that time you gave that perfect speech at your friend's wedding or landed that sweet summer gig. Just a few minutes thinking back on these high times can boost your confidence, helping you arrive anywhere feeling your best.

Speak Up

What's hurts confidence more than being caught totally off guard? Don't be afraid to ask the host questions in order to get the answers you need. Is the party BYOB? What is the dress code? Knowing these types of details is what allows you to be one step ahead of the game from the moment you arrive.

Prepare Yourself

Feel confident in public knowing that you are as prepared as possible. For smokeless tobacco users, this means investing in the gear you need to do your thing. Check out the sleek portable spittoons made by FLASR, an Atlanta-based company that specializes in these types of trendy accessories.

The FLASR flask has an advanced closing mechanism, which essentially means that you can be confident that this small container won't leak or spill while you are out and about. With FLASR, enjoy your smokeless tobacco product in public, insecurity-free.

The Best Accessories for Going Swimming

Lifestyles - 3 hours 10 min ago

(NewsUSA) - Summer. The word itself sounds so relaxing and soothing to the senses. And nothing is more soothing in the summer than swimming.

At the very least, there's certainly nothing more cooling or refreshing than a quick trip to the pool. Indeed, with the temperatures rising and vacations in high gear, it's prime time to take a trip to the beach or head to your favorite resort pool and enjoy one of America's favorite summer pastimes: swimming.

To ensure your next trip to the pool is as relaxing and successful as ever, however, there are some essential items everybody should consider bringing. So, whether it's just a casual day of cooling off, a special summer pool party or family fun day, here's a to-do list that covers all pool partygoers.

* First and foremost, lather up with suntan lotions. And then bring more in your tote bag so you can reapply after a round or two of swimming. There's nothing more frustrating when you settle in and realize you forgot your supplies and need to buy more.

* Pack swimming gear. Regardless of whether you're going to the beach or pool, make sure you have goggles, noodles and other flotation devices. Your time in the water will never be more enjoyable.

* Bring some snacks and drinks. After some rigorous swimming or leisurely baking in the sun, you're bound to build up an appetite or have a need to quench your thirst.

* Don't forget your spittoon. Being at the pool in a bikini or trunks can leave one very exposed to say the least. If you're a smokeless tobacco user, there's even less opportunity to take a discreet "dip" while you're taking a dip in the pool.

That is, unless you own a portable spittoon created by Atlanta-based FLASR. These new 4-ounce pocket-sized spittoons are brilliantly designed to allow users to easily open and close with just one hand, making them ideal items to bring to the pool or any other public setting so you can still enjoy your smokeless tobacco. Another advantage to the FLASR flask is its advanced closing mechanism that ensures it stays securely closed when not in use, eliminating the risk of any messy spills or leaks in the pool that come with those gaudy bottles or drink cups of old.

Gadgets to Make Your Commute More Comfortable

Lifestyles - 3 hours 14 min ago

(NewsUSA) - Americans spend a lot of time on the road and getting to work, be it in a car, on a train or on a bus.

In fact, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average commute for Americans is 25 minutes. However, other studies peg higher-profile cities such as Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Atlanta and San Francisco at almost 60 hours per year.

If you're not one of the lucky few who work from home, but instead log considerable hours getting from point A to point B for your job, the following accessories may help make your commute more productive, if not downright enjoyable.

Portable Brewing Mug

The coffee industry is being turned on its ear by companies coming out with battery-powered portable brewing systems. One current system holds 14 ounces of java and is temperature controlled by pushing a button on the cup. Coffee is brewed in three minutes and the mug can also be charged in your car by USB.

Handbag and Charger

In order to sustain an all-day charge without taking along a chunky block, portable battery packs are all the rage. For women, there are now purses and handbags that come equipped with a place to store a small charger that will keep your phone, tablet or e-reader charged all the day long.

Screen Glasses

According to a recent report by Kleiner Perkins analyst Mary Meeker, Americans spend 444 minutes each day staring at screens. This means that 95 percent of Americans are at risk for digital eye strain that causes dryness, itchiness and fuzzy vision, according to a recent report released by The Vision Council. To prevent further eye strain, commuters who use their laptop, smartphone or tablet in transit (or e-reader for that matter), might want to consider purchasing protective glasses that are engineered to block out the damaging high-energy, UV and artificial blue light that screens omit. These high-tech glasses can also be outfitted with your current prescription lens.

Smokeless Tobacco Accessories

For smokeless tobacco users, one of the more inconvenient aspects to enjoying your product of choice is the unsightly spit cup or bottle that you must carry around. To that end, FLASR (OTCQB: FLASR) has created a pocket-sized spittoon designed to allow users to open and shut it with just one hand, making it easy to use even while driving. The small size of the FLASR portable tobacco flask allows users to dip unobtrusively in public. It also fits in a cup holder.
