3 Fishing Rod Care Tips For You

Today, I’d like to talk more about my other passion i.e. fishing. I recently introduced by buddy Paul to it and just a few weeks later he came to me complaining that his fishing rod was malfunctioning.

Turns out, he bought a cheap knock off and to make the matters worse, he stored it poorly. And so it ended up damaged due to prolonged exposure to the sun.

For the quality part, I told him to stop compromising. It’s better to spend a few more bucks for something good that will provide you with good value for money. But his biggest mistake was poor storage habits.

Indeed, no matter how well made your rod is, if you store it poorly, chances are that it will get damaged before you even notice it. And for that, I would like to share the following useful buying guidelines.

Tip #1: Avoid Exposing It Directly To the Sun

When storing your rod, make sure you keep it in a good place. Preferably in a place with adequate shade. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause any rod to become brittle and break easily.

Tip #2: Avoid Rusting

Even the best made rods can rust. This is especially so if you often use it to fish in salty water conditions. For that, our top recommendation is that you should always oil your rod. But you don’t have to do this every other day.
Just do it every so often and that will be fine. The rules for oiling fishing rods are the same as the ones for cleaning fishing reels (always do so with a keen hand). Just be consistent with what you do to avoid losing your precious.

Tip #3: Be Gentle

Even if rods are meant to be resilient, they can also breakdown under pressure. So, be gentle in terms of how you use them. Likewise, handle them with care when storing them.

Don’t be one of those people who simply throw them to the ceiling when you’re done using them. Place them gently.
Also, we’d recommend that you routinely inspect for any signs of damage. If you spot any scratches or dents, be sure to re-think how you handle them. These small signs of damage matter a lot at the end of the day regarding how long your lovely rod will last.

Final Thoughts

Much as nothing is meant to last forever, well-made rods can last a lifetime if well-maintained. Just be sure to take good care of it. Protect it like your life depends on it and it will reward you with many more years of service.
Treat it like dirt and it will break even before you can capture any fish with it. And you really don’t want to happen.

So, we highly recommend that you should take good care of it. Be keen on the little things – at the end of the day, it’s the little things that count.

And to crown it all up, be sure to get yourself a well-made rod. Cheap ones don’t last long no matter how well you care for them.

4 Tips To Tame Your Anxiety

We all go through the experience where we feel worried, nervous or simply unease. And while it’s normal to be anxious from time to time, you need to appreciate that this feeling can sometimes affect your productivity. In worse off scenarios, the apprehensiveness may lead to other more complicated health issues such as depression or even cardiovascular complications. So, what’s the best thing to do if you want to manage this condition? Here are some important tips to always keep in mind.

Tip #1: Don’t Let Your Anxiety Hold You Back

You have to put it in your mind that you will never want this condition to hold you back. That is because anxiety is a form of fear and you don’t want to give it an opportunity to thrive. The best way to overcome any type of fear is by taking it – head-on. And the good thing is that most of the things that make us anxious are not always as bad as we might have thought them to be in the first place. So, erase all that fear from your mind and replace it with the “I will not let my anxiety hold me back” status.

Tip #2: Break Your Goals Into Tiny Ones

The best way to overcome anxiety is by building your confidence. And one good way to build confidence is by celebrating small wins. So, if you have a goal that is intimidating you, be sure to break it apart into small mini-goals. Then as you achieve each one of the mini-goals, tick them off, take some time off and celebrate. You’ll gradually realize that you’ll get an edge over overwhelming projects that might have been the cause of your anxiety.

Tip #3: Supplement Your Way Out

Anxiety occurs when the amygdala part of your brain becomes hyperactive. So, it is safe to say that any form of anxiety if brain related and, therefore, the best way to address it is by tackling it at that level. Start by taking food and multivitamins that help your brain gain more power over emotional changes. There are also quite a few brain supplements that can help you in this quest, one of them being featured in this Nootrogen review. Of course, any supplements you opt for should be used with the approval of your doctor especially if you have already sought medical attention over this issue.

Tip #4: It’s The Little Things That Matter

You don’t have to go out of your way to recover from anxiety. Feeling anxious just before a job interview? Take deep breaths (slow breaths) until when you start feeling a bit relaxed. Then from that point, slowly and quietly count to 10 and 20 if necessary as you breathe rhythmically. If possible, take time out – listen to some relaxing music (or your favorite music) and also learn some relaxation techniques.

Final Thoughts

Don’t let anxiety put you down. Start today by making tiny but important changes in your life. Train your brain to meditate on positive vibes and above all, eat right.
