A special day to celebrate those who gives us life dates back to the early Greeks and Romans who held festivals to celebrate Cybele, a goddess who represented the fertile earth and was considered the mother of gods. The celebrations we see now have little to do with these ancient festivals. The occasion is now marked by giving thanks and appreciation to our own moms. One of the ways that this appreciation is manifested is by the giving of Mothers Day flowers.
Generally, a person will have these beautiful flowers arranged in a bouquet. There are common types found in this bouquet and each has their own meaning. Together, they symbolize a collage of sentiments that one wants to express to their special woman.
Lilies are known to have existed for over three thousand years. They were discovered on the Island of Crete near Greece. They came to represent chastity and virtue for the Greeks. Some felt that these flowers were derived from the queen of gods, Hera, and resulted from the milk from her bosom. Other people felt that they symbolized the virtues of the Virgin Mary.
Carnations originally came from the Mediterranean region of the Europe. The species date back to over two thousand years ago and have been appreciated by the Greeks since that time. Carnations come in all different colors today, but they originally were only found with a pinkish color. The actual name of the flower is Dianthus Caryophyllus, which means flower of love or, depending on the translation, flower of the gods.
There are over 25,000 different types of orchids. The Greeks felt that the orchid represented virility, but after they became popular during the Victorian Age in England, came to represent luxurious wealth. Today, they are considered a sign of a rare delicate beauty. There is an incredible wide range of appearances that the orchid takes and it often entrances those who gaze upon its beauty.
Tulips have come to represent the beginning of spring in many parts of the world. A time when life returns to land and all things begin to blossom again. The pink tulip is particularly associated with warmth and affection as love fills the air. The Turkish believe that the red tulip symbolizes a perfect love that a man can have for a woman.
The rose is the flower most associated with love. The ancient Greeks felt the rose sprang from the blood of Adonis to show Aphrodite that his love for her will never die. As time passed the rose with its thorns came to represent the sacrifice if Jesus Christ made for those who accepted his death as a forgiveness of their own personal sins. No other flower represents true love more than a single rose handed to the woman that a man loves.
Mothers Day flowers are a way to show our appreciation for the women who have given birth to us. This is a day we show them the love that that have shown for us. Each pedal on the bouquet is a sign of this dedication and love.
Follow The Right Diet Plan For Your Body
Anyone can lose weight if they are committed to doing so, but it's made so much easier if you are aware of effective strategies on losing weight safely and for the long-term. There are many ways to lose weight, but it's important to do so in a way that is easy for you to stick with. Here are some canny tips that we are sure will be invaluable to you.
Drinking water is essential to losing weight and becoming healthy, but it's hard to drink enough each day. Carry a water bottle, either disposable or refillable, with you every where you go and you can take a sip of water whenever you feel thirsty or feel the first pangs of hunger.
You can consume less calories, and lose more weight, if you take the time to cut up your food. Portion control is difficult for most people, so take a food that contains a large amount of calories (like chocolate) and cut it into smaller portions. You can still eat what you like, but by only consuming a small amount of the food, you will not gain as much weight.
If you're having trouble losing weight, try using some fitness DVDs to give you a structured weight loss routine. Jillian Michaels has some great, proven DVDs that with a little work each day, can have you achieving your dream body in only a few weeks. If you can't afford a fitness DVD try following some fitness videos on YouTube.
Make sure you are getting some exercise while you are on your diet plan. Exercise in any form is great for helping you to lose those excess pounds. You don't have to have a gym membership to workout either. You can run, do sit ups and push ups and that will help you in your weight loss efforts. Walking is also another great way to help you lose weight. Try and stay active, get your body in motion to lose the weight.
Work out for weight loss by not working out. A lot of people freeze and give up when they realize that for true sustained weight loss you need to start exercising. Trick your brain into going along with your exercise by not calling it that. Stay away from the gym and get your "work out" in by washing your car, riding a bike, going on a hike, or any of a million other activities that are exercise without being "exercise".
Stay away from foods that you have trouble stopping at one serving. If you cannot stop eating chips then you should not buy a bag and try to eat one serving. Most likely you will give into temptation. Buy something else that is crunchy but is lower in fat and calories.
Dining out presents a challenge for people trying to lose weight. Even with more healthy options available, restaurant portion sizes are still far too large. One incredibly simple way to control what you're eating is to order your dinner, and ask the server to box half of it up when they bring it to the table. You'll be eating half as much food right off the bat, and can bring home the rest for another meal.
Red pepper flakes are wonderful to use when trying to lose weight. If you eat them early on in the day, it will actually help you to lower the amount of food you eat. You can put some on eggs for breakfast, or use them anyway you would like to.
If you are a potato chip lover like so many of us are, these can really hurt your diet. Try baking some apples instead. The baked apples will give you that crunch that a potato chip will, but offer you the nutrition of eating an apple. Finding healthy alternatives to your favorite foods will boost your weight loss.
There is some very useful advice there, and some of it may even be new to you. What's important however, is to give it time. None of these tips will give you quick results, nor should you want them to. Putting the weight on took a long time, and losing it over a long period is a safer, and more realistic way to go about it. When you don't see results it can be difficult to keep going on the weight loss journey, but if you have committed yourself to accomplishing your weight loss goal, you are unstoppable.
