How to Plan a Successful Vacation with Your Other Half

Travel cannot only allow you to soak up different cultures and experience new sights and sounds, but it can potentially bring you and your spouse closer together. However, the destination you pick, the itinerary you create and the activities you choose can determine whether a break is a success or failure.

To ensure you both look back on a trip with much fondness, read the below advice on how to plan a successful vacation with your other half.

Choose a Destination to Suit You Both

While you might have your heart set on a destination, you should never push your idea onto your other half, or you could completely ruin their travel experience. Instead, you must choose a location that suits both your needs, which will ensure have an unforgettable time together.

Select the Right Mode of Transportation

Once you have chosen a destination together, you will next need to select the right mode of transport for you both. For example, if you are enjoying a vacation at home, you could jump into your car and enjoy a fun road trip.

If, however, you are traveling overseas or to the opposite end of the country, browse the market for the best flight times for your needs. However, if you are heading to Texas, you could add a little romance and luxury into your journey with a private jets Dallas flight.

Take Advantage of Travel Perks

Are you and your other half celebrating a milestone anniversary or honeymoon? Inform hotel staff once you arrive at your accommodation. As a result, you might receive:

• a complimentary room upgrade

• a bottle of champagne

• a free meal at the hotel’s restaurant

Enjoy Some Alone Time

Conflict can easily arise when you spend every waking minute together. Rather than allowing tension to bubble, it is beneficial to enjoy a little time apart on vacation.

For example, take a walk to the store alone, enjoy a dip in the pool while your partner reads a book, or go for a siesta to recharge your batteries. The short break away will also provide some time to miss your other half, so you will feel happier when you come back together.

Prioritize Activities

It is likely you and your partner will have a list of activities you want to experience at a destination. To ensure you each get to tick an attraction off your bucket list, you must both state the places or things you would like to see/do during a getaway. You must then prioritize attractions to maximize your time and prevent conflict.

Conclusion

A vacation will provide you and your partner with an opportunity to strengthen your connection, which can help your relationship to stand the test of time.

However, to enjoy a getaway together, you must choose your transportation wisely, take a short break from each other from time to time, and be willing to compromise. If you follow the above top tips, it is likely you will enjoy a romantic, hassle-free vacation from start to finish.

Hormone Disruptors

The 5 Biggest Disruptors Wreaking Havoc On Your Hormones

As 2019 dawns, some people are taking a “new year-new you” approach. They’re determined to make self-improvements that provide a fresh, positive outlook and strong sense of well-being.

But sometimes health factors undermine those good intentions, such as depression and its link to hormone imbalances. There are myriad ways both men and women suffer adverse effects to their hormones, says Don Colbert, M.D., and many of them are avoidable.

“We are exposed to thousands of toxic chemicals on a regular basis in the air, water and food,” says Colbert, author of Dr. Colbert’s Hormone Health Zone. “Some of them are hormone disruptors because they disturb your endocrine system, wreaking havoc and creating hormonal imbalances.

“Not only are the effects of all these disruptors depressing to think about; they actually cause depression, along with countless other ailments such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and more. But the basic principle is this: decreasing the number of disruptions will improve your health.”

Dr. Colbert breaks down the top hormone disruptors affecting men and women along with ways to minimize the disruption or stop it:

Lifestyle choices. “Whether it’s weight gain and a lack of exercise, anger and unforgiveness, drinking too much alcohol or some other thing that can be controlled, your hormone levels drop and you begin a slow slide to poorer health,” Dr. Colbert says. “Make better choices, and that dramatically decreases the chances of having any hormone deficiency symptoms.”

Medications. Medications affect the body’s cells, and sometimes side effects manifest in major problems. For example, Dr. Colbert cites Mayo Clinic research showing a prescription statin drug that lowered cholesterol could result in liver damage, memory loss or type 2 diabetes. “I estimate that 55 percent of the entire US population is taking pills that directly and negatively affect hormone levels,” Dr. Colbert says. “Get off these harmful medications you hate.”

Things you touch. Chemicals entering the body through the skin can cause long-term damage. Dr. Colbert notes phthalates, disruptors found in household cleaners, cosmetics, toys and numerous other products. “Phthalates negatively affect both men’s and women’s ability to use the testosterone that is in our bodies,” Dr. Colbert says. “Another is BPA (bisphenol A), found on the inside of metal-canned foods and plastic food-storing containers. Specifically, BPA has been found to cause or contribute to cancer, fertility problems, developmental issues and heart disease. I recommend buying glass jars of food and storing in ceramic containers.”

Diet deficiencies. “The standard American diet is usually low in key nutrients that support a healthy thyroid,” Dr. Colbert says. “Many patients with hormone imbalances have low iodine. The best solution is eat more vegetables, ideally raw or steamed.”

Aging. Dr. Colbert says estrogen levels for women begin to decline around the age of 50; for men, testosterone levels can drop low around age 45-50. “Aging is a natural combatant as a hormone disruptor,” he says, “but we can slow the acceleration of the effects of aging by optimizing our hormones. Healthy habits can make a huge difference.”

“Symptoms of serious problems indicated by hormonal imbalance can be reversed by those who focus on health in their diet, lifestyle and living environment,” Dr. Colbert says. “Then they can enable all of their systems to function optimally.”

About Don Colbert, M.D.
Don Colbert, M.D., is the author of Dr. Colbert’s Hormone Health Zone. He has been a board-certified family practice doctor for more than 25 years and has offices in Orlando, Fla., and Dallas. The author of over 40 books, he wrote two New York Times best-sellers – The Seven Pillars of Health and Dr. Colbert’s “I Can Do This” Diet – has sold more than 10 million books and treated 50,000-plus patients. Dr. Colbert is a frequent show guest of Christian leaders Joyce Meyer, John Hagee, and Kenneth Copeland and has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show, Fox News, ABC World News Tonight, and in periodicals such as Newsweek and Reader’s Digest.

JMBLYA Festival

ScoreMore Shows is proud to announce the full music lineup for the seventh annual JMBLYA, which will return to Dallas and Austin May 3 and 4, respectively. GA and VIP ticket packages will go on sale this Friday, March 1, at noon CT at www.jmblya.com.

The two-city, two-day fest is set to officially kick off in Dallas on Friday, May 3 with a return to the historic Fair Park near downtown Dallas followed by a stop in Austin on Saturday, May 4 at the award-winning, multi-purpose entertainment facility Circuit of The Americas (COTA). Last year, both locations hosted JMBLYA’s largest crowds to date with 60,000+ total attendees across two days. Parking will once again be complimentary to all attendees at COTA.

In the tradition of years past, JMBLYA will offer festival-goers a stacked lineup filled to the brim with a highly curated selection of today’s hottest and most sought-after hip-hop performers. Grammy Award-nominated multi-platinum rapper/producer and Texas-native Travis Scott will headline the 2019 festival. Scott is arguably one of the the most popular and influential artists of the past year with recent accolades including a performance at the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show and the August release of his third studio album Astroworld, which has since been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and which featured Scott’s first number one song on the US Billboard Hot 100, “Sicko Mode.”

Other notable performers on the lineup include three generations of outstanding emcees from Louisiana, including Grammy Award-winning and oft-labeled “Best Rapper Alive” Lil Wayne, who continues to perform in support of his recently released, long-awaited twelfth studio album, Tha Carter V; hustler-turned-rapper Kevin Gates, who continues to churn out new music following 2018’s Chained to the City and Luca Brasi 3 mixtapes; and one of today’s most exciting up-and-comers, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, who continues to perform in support of his debut studio album, Until Death Call My Name, released last spring.

Also set to grace the main stages at JMBLYA 2019 are rappers Gunna and Sheck Wes, both of whom are touring with Travis Scott as part of his nationwide “Astroworld—Wish You Were Here” tour; viral sensation-turned-emcee Bhad Bhabie, who is currently the youngest female rapper ever to appear on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and who continues to tease new music from her yet-to-be-named debut album; and Los Angeles hot act Blueface, whose most recent single, “Thotiana,” continues to gain popularity while making waves on radio stations across the country.

Additional performers include female hip-hop duo City Girls, who are currently signed to Quality Control, the music label home to other rap megastars like Migos, Cardi B, and Lil Yachty; Houston’s own Maxo Kream, who just released his long-awaited debut album, Punken, this past January; and rising Filipino-American artist P-Lo, who might be most known for founding the hip hop record production collective HBK Gang and who released his sophomore studio album, PRIME, this past July. Two aspiring Texas-based emcees, WhooKilledKenny from Austin and 10k.caash from Dallas, help to round out the 2019 lineup.

This year, JMBLYA is also offering its most luxurious VIP ticket option to date with the debut of the Drop Top VIP package for $2500.  This package includes four festival passes, complimentary golf cart rides from stage to stage, a personal professional photographer assigned to the ticket-buyer and their three guests throughout the event; a very special and private porta-potty with a bathroom attendant; a custom shout-out from JMBLYA’s social media channels, a Drop Top-only trailer filled with free snacks and non-alcoholic refreshments, and two food vendor tickets valid for use at any food vendors on the festival grounds. Those interested in any of the VIP packages, especially Drop Top VIP, are encouraged to act fast and purchase soon as each option is limited in quantity.

Each leg of the 2019 festival will again support a local charitable partner. On Day 1 in Dallas, JMBLYA will benefit Music Forward, a highly-regarded nonprofit organization which transforms young lives, inspires careers, and champions a more inclusive music industry. Music Forward has impacted over 1M lives and invested $25M towards providing transformational music opportunities to youth from under-represented communities during the last 25+ years. In Austin for Day 2, the festival will donate a portion of proceeds to Grounded in Music, an Austin-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which works with underprivileged children in grades 4 and up to provide music instruction that would be otherwise absent from their school’s curriculum and to connect children with nationally-recognized musicians, opportunities, and scholarships.

JMBLYA would also like to thank returning sponsors Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Red Bull who are helping to make the 2019 festival possible.

Be on the lookout as more JMBLYA news, including the full performance schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.

Johnny Orlando’s Debut EP

Johnny Orlando Announces Debut EP, TEENAGE FEVER, Plots Headlining North American Tour &

Drops Dreamy New Single “SLEEP”

Singer-songwriter and fan favorite Johnny Orlando shows no sign of slowing down. Set to share his first solid musical statement in the form of his debut EP, Teenage Fever, out March 15, followed by a headlining North American tour this spring, the recent JUNO-Award nominee for Breakthrough Artist of the Year also drops his dreamy new single, Sleep today.

Tickets for the Teenage Fever Tour are on sale February 18 at johnnyorlandomusic.com. To pre-order Teenage Fever, click here. See full track listing below.

Sleep”, co-written by Orlando, his sister Darian and Swedish collaborators Linnea Södahl (Zara Larsson, Anne-Marie) and Hampus Lindvall (Zara Larsson), is the second single from Johnny’s upcoming debut EP. The pop Swedish-influenced song about living in the moment and not wanting that moment to end showcases Johnny’s maturing sound and songwriting skills.

“We wrote ‘Sleep’ for anyone who’s ever experienced that feeling of never wanting to be apart from someone who you love to spend time with. I felt that it was a very real and relatable thing that people experience at some point in their adolescence,” said Johnny. “Linnea first came up with the concept for ‘Sleep’ – it’s almost like there’s a word for it in Swedish, or it’s a common feeling, that we don’t really think about in English, and that’s why I think it’s so unique.”

Out March 15, Teenage Fever marks Orlando’s biggest release since signing with Universal Music Canada and Island Records. Emanating confidence and charisma over danceable electronic grooves and a subtle hip-hop bounce, Orlando levels up his take on pop. The EP highlights his ever-evolving songwriting skills as he co-writes all six tracks with his sister, Darian Orlando, and a range of acclaimed collaborators including Mike Wise (bülow, Dvbbs, RALPH), Linnea Södahl (Zara Larsson, Anne-Marie), Nick Ruth (Ryan Tedder), Jordon Manswell (Daniel Caesar) and Matthew Burnett (Jessie Reyez, Daniel Caesar). The EP also features previously released single, “Last Summer” which sits at over 17.3 million global streams (and growing) across all platforms.

“I’m very excited and so grateful that I have this opportunity to share my debut EP,” added Johnny. “‘Teenage Fever’, represents those experiences and feelings all teenagers have while trying to navigate their high school years. It tells the story of my journey, and I hope it will give people a more personal insight into my life and experiences. We spent about a year making this project and it means so much to me. I worked with so many cool people with different backgrounds and from different places, which gives it a lot of character and makes every song unique. I’m so happy to share new music with fans and hope they love it as much as I do – I can’t wait to see the reaction live on tour!”  

Stay tuned for much more to come from Johnny Orlando at johnnyorlandomusic.com.
