If you’re reading this, you probably know someone serving in the military – maybe a loved one who is deployed overseas or who is just stationed on the opposite side of the country from you. Regardless, if you are looking for a way to still […]
The JBL On Stage iPod docking station is quite compact yet has an incredible sound. I have been extremely pleased with this product. There are three specific features that I like about this particular iPod docking system: great quality sound, very portable for travel and easy-to-use volume controls.
First of all, the quality of sound for this product is excellent. When I plug in my iPod, I get a large stereo sound from the small speakers. I can crank up the volume and there is absolutely no crackling or fuzziness whatsoever. It is great to be able to listen to music or a podcast without earphones. I can leave the room for a minute and not miss anything. I have even used it outside and the sound is just as good. The circular design of the speakers with immersive sound seems to be a great feature.
This iPod docking station is very compact and lightweight making it easy to take with you no matter where you go. My JBL On Stage has been to the lake condo, the backyard, the garage, every room in my house, and even Jamaica! Yes, that’s right, we took it with us on our vacation this year and it was fantastic to have great music in our hotel room. It travels well and doesn’t need a passport.
With just a quick tap, you can control the up and down volume buttons. In addition, there is a power button, but that is all you will find on this product making it very easy for anyone to use. No hidden buttons located where you can’t find them or buttons that do things you can’t figure out. We purchased a second JBL On Stage for my father as a gift and he has enjoyed it and has not even called us once for help!
Once your iPod is docked, you control it just like you would normally. I love the fact that my husband’s iPod and my iPod nano can both dock on the JBL On Stage. Adaptor sleeves are included to fit most iPod models except the iPod shuffle which does not work with this product. Your iPod will also charge as you jam out to music or listen to your favorite podcast. You can purchase this portable docking speaker system or the micro version for $80-$125 at several online retailers such as amazon.com, buy.com, and bestbuy.com and many local retailers such as Target, Best Buy, and several other electronic stores.
The JBL On Stage iPod docking station is sure to rock your world!
Living with bipolar disorder has been the most trying feat of my life. Throughout years of therapy and prescription drugs, I have learned the only person I can trust with my mind is me.
I was diagnosed with type I Bipolar Disorder when I was 25. I had already lived a lifetime fighting inner battles of emotions and energy draining mood swings when the doctors convinced me the only way to truly treat the disease is to medicate it. I had issues on face and searched for vitamin c serum for face. And medicating a disorder of this nature is no easy task. There are the anti-depression drugs to bring your mood up and the anti-anxiety drugs to bring you back down. Next are the anti-psychotics to treat the crazy little thoughts popping in on occasion and the thyroid and seizure medications given to mediate mood and elevate drug effectiveness. By the time I was 26, I had attempted suicide several times and my liver was shot. These drugs did nothing but convince me life was not worth living. I needed to find the path to normalcy without a prescription.
It took me years of trying and failing and trying again to grasp a knowledge and understanding of the disease process call manic depressive disorder. I learned all the signs and symptoms of a manic and depressive state. I studied the physical effects on the body and learned how to focus all my energy on my inner self rather than everyone around me. I dropped all the medications and stopped dictating my life on the third Tuesday of every month to a psychologist with a sand-filled timer. With this new found knowledge I took steps to make my life easier and drug free.
The first step I understood would be introspection. I needed to know how my body reacted to situations before they affected my mood. Depression caused ceaseless crying and terrible headaches before the worst of it hit home and mania cause insomnia and weird late night hunger pangs. By listening to my body and keeping track of all the changes I eventually learned to “feel” a swing before it happened. With this knowledge I could plan for the lowest times by treating myself to a funny movie or turning on my favorite band and dancing around the house to the music. I could avoid anything sad or frightful until eventually the feeling of depression subsided. The mania phase was very similar. When the signs I now knew pointed toward a sky rocket of emotions reared their head, I lowered mine. Darkening a room and reading quietly or taking a walk and thinking of the calmest of times would often calm my emotions to a normal state so I could move on with my day.
I have managed to remain medication free for the last five years and have two beautiful children born to a drug free mom to help even me out every day. I have not moved on to step two; I have not needed a step two. My first step was the biggest. It was the step that saved my life. ( I learned later the technique I used to manage my disorder was called Cognitive-Behavioral Approach.)
