This Guy Pours Flour Inside This Balloon. But The Reason Is Brilliant and I Totally Need This!

This is a really great project with a very cool end result. Who doesn’t want ninja balls? They make the perfect gift for kids, or adults for that matter, plus they are super easy to make and cost next to nothing. All you need is some flour, a bag of balloons, a couple of appropriately sized plastic bottles and a small amount of time.

Once you are finished, you will have a whole bunch of squishy, fun balls that are durable and perfect for juggling, or anything the kids can think of. First, you need to cut the bottom off of one plastic bottle and put it inside the other, using it as a funnel to fill the second bottle with flour.

Once full, place an air filled balloon over the mouth of the flour-filled bottle and flip it upside down. Shaking it, fill the balloon with flour. Get all the air out of the balloon, then cut off the top. Take another two balloons with the tops cut off and place them over the first, making sure to flip them each time so the holes are covered.

Now for the ninja masks. Cut a balloon as he shows you in the video, then put it around the outside of your flour ball. Tada! You can use any imaginable color combination to make unique and beautiful designs. They are very durable, hold their shape when squished, and are solid enough to make perfect juggling balls.

If I were a kid, I would be so excited if someone made these for me, or better yet, helped me make them myself! What do you think about these awesome ninja balls?

Let us know if you made one and how it came out!

Apparently If You Massage This Spot On Your Ear THIS Happens!

Let’s face it, we all suffer from stress in our day to day lives. ¬†How we handle it is key to our life satisfaction, so I always pay attention to new information in the medical community that could be of help. ¬†Dr. Mark Sandomirsky has begun to spread a new technique, that he has been teaching his patients. ¬†New to Western medicine, it has proven to be an effective way of relieving stress.

The emotional stress we experience can be manifested into physical pain.  Some of us somaticize our stress through head pain, stomach pain, neck stiffness and back pain among other body parts.  Accupressure has been shown to relieve many areas of pain in the body.

There appears to be a point on the outside of the ear, that has the ability to relieve stress better than most. ¬†It is known in Chinese medicine as “Shen Men” (“The Gate of Heaven”). By putting pressure on this point, that is illustrated in the video below, it is believed that energy is infused to the entire body. ¬†In so doing, overall health is improved and stress is reduced to a manageable calming level.

Watch the video so that you can target the exact point, which Dr. Sandomirsky says is best massaged with the tip of a Q-tip, as this point is in a small space in the upper part of the outer ear.  Deep breathing while you massage the Shen Men point makes this accupressure more effective; turn your head to the left when you inhale and to the right when you exhale.
