  • Hope your weekend doesn& #039 ;t fly by too quickly!✨These winged babies have been flying into mailboxes all over lately, and I& #039 ;m running low on this batch! Scarab beetles in Ancient Egypt were a sacred symbol of the sun god Ra, symbolically linked because of the beetle& #039 ;s behavior of rolling a ball of dung across the ground and Ra& #039 ;s task of rolling the sun across the sky. ☀️ The Egyptians also observed young beetles emerging from the ball of dung, from which they mistakenly inferred that the male beetle was able to reproduce without needing a female. From this, they drew parallels with their god Atum, who also begat children alone. Scarabs are often depicted as having spread wings, extending their powers of protection.✨🐞✨ I love the way myths seek to explain the mysteries of the universe. But what do you find unanswerable that there should be a myth about?? Like where do all the missing socks go when you do laundry?? #scarab #ancientegypt #arthistory #artifact #bugsarecool #insects #bugs #beetles #pingame #pingamestrong #enamelpin #pincollector #pinstagram #illustration #design #mythology #ancienthistory #egypt

  • ✨Easy Tips for Amazing Skin: The Importance of Sleep😴 – Complexion feeling a bit dull lately? Make sure you’re getting enough sleep! The hours we spend asleep are some of the most constructive and healthy for our bodies and in turn our complexions. It’s during this time that the brain signals for intensive repair, with collagen production rising, skin renewal rate nearly doubling and UV-induced and other cell damage reversing. - So, how much sleep should we be getting? Everyone’s body chemistry is different but experts suggest a minimum of 7 hours of quality sleep each night. And sleep quality definitely matters. A research team from University Hospitals Case Medical Center found that those qualified as “poor sleepers” showed increased signs of aging. Study participants who slept less soundly showed an increase in fine lines, pigmentation and a reduction in skin elasticity. They even had more difficulty recovering from sunburn and skin irritation, recovering 30% less than participants with high quality sleep. - If you’re concerned about your sleep quality, here are some sleep tips directly from the Mayo clinic: - 1. Stick to a schedule. Being consistent reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle. - 2. Pay attention to what you eat and drink. Avoid nicotine, caffeine and alcohol, and don’t go to bed hungry or stuffed. - 3. Create a restful environment. Usually this means cool, dark and quiet. - 4. Limit daytime naps. If you nap, limit yourself to 30 minutes and avoid doing so late in the day. - 5. Include physical activity in your daily routine. Regular physical activity can promote better sleep but avoid being active too close to bedtime. - 6. Manage worries. Jot down what’s on your mind and then set it aside for tomorrow. - Most importantly – know when to contact your doctor. Nearly everyone has occasional sleepless nights, but if you often have trouble sleeping a doctor can help identify and treat any underlying causes to help you get the better sleep you deserve. - #WashLikeAnEgyptian
