10 Benefits of Rising Early, and How to Do It “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise” – Ben Franklin, famously “Put no trust in the benefits to accrue from early rising, as set forth by the infatuated Franklin …” – Mark Twain By Leo Babauta Recently, reader Rob asked me about my habit of waking at 4:30 a.m. each day, and asked me to write about the health benefits of rising early, which I thought was an excellent question. However, there are a ton of other great benefits. Now, let me first say that if you are a night owl, and that works for you, I think that’s great. Greet the day. How to Become an Early Riser Don’t make drastic changes.

12 Reasons You're Not Losing Fat 1) You’re Eating Too Many Calories This should be pretty obvious to most people, but there are still those who are claiming that you can eat all you want as long as you avoid carbs. That’s just not true. If you’re eating the right amount of healthy food it would be hard NOT to lose fat. Eating less is challenging. When you’re not losing fat the way you want to the solution is pretty simple. 2) You’re Not Eating Enough Calories This is the opposite side of the coin, #obvs. When you cut calories too low your thyroid will shut down and losing fat will become very difficult. At that point the best thing you can do is crank your calories through the roof for a while. 3) You’re Looking for the Quick Fix or Latest Celebrity Diet How long did it take you to get fat? Add all that up and you’ll get an estimate of how long it’s going to take you to lose that fat. There are no quick fixes. Eating healthy has to become habitual. 4) You’re Eating Too Much Fat Speaking of trendy diets… That never works.

What are the F1 through F12 keys? Commonly known as function keys on a computer keyboard, F1 through F12 may have a variety of different uses or no use at all. The operating system installed on the computer and the software program currently open can change how each of these keys operate. A program is capable of not only using each of the function keys, but also combining the function keys with the ALT or CTRL key. For example, Microsoft Windows users can press ALT + F4 to close the program currently active. Note: Some keyboards include additional functions on the function keys, which can be activated by pressing the FN key, usually located near the CTRL key, and the appropriate function key. Tip: Some computers may automatically enable the FN key for accessing the special functions on the F1 through F12 keys. If your keyboard does not have a row of function keys, they are probably set up as secondary functions on other keys. In Windows renames a highlighted icon, file, or folder in all versions of Windows.

Foods for Workouts: Cardio An all-around healthy diet is best for any exercise routine, but cardiovascular exercise requires a balance of special nutrients. If you get cardiovascular exercise regularly (and we all should) – here’s how to fuel up. Cardio Basics Cardio exercise like walking, running and biking require energy from both carbohydrates and fat. Carbohydrates are the body’s #1 go-to source, but healthy sources of fat also give ample doses of energy. As exercise intensity changes (like due to an increase in speed or running uphill, for example), the body switches back and forth between carbs and fat to provide energy. All foods are digested and metabolized differently, so you need to think about the best times to eat foods that will support your exercise schedule. Before A Workout Pre-workout meals should focus mostly on healthy carbs, but since carbs with high amounts of fiber take longer to digest, you want to be careful not to take in too much directly before exercise.

What does "America" mean please? Definition/Meaning It is an irony of history that the name "America" did not come from Christopher Columbus. That distinction belongs to a German writer of geography. In a further twist of events, America was named after Amerigo Vespucci, a 15th century Florentine merchant who owned a business in Seville, Spain, furnishing supplies for ships, preparing them for mercantile expeditions. How do we explain what seems to mock the reality of history? Stirred by the achievements of Columbus and envious of the reputation his discoveries brought, Vespucci endeavored to cultivate Columbus' friendship and trust. Seven years after Columbus' first voyage and while Columbus was still alive, Vespucci accompanied an expedition that consisted of four ships. Some years later Vespucci's letters were published and read by Martin Waldseemuller, a noted geographer, and Mathias Ringmann, a schoolmaster. Apparently ignorant of the discoveries and achievements made by Columbus fifteen years earlier, Ringmann continued:

How to Whiten Yellow Teeth at Home for Free (My Story) Lisa Arends: How to Transform Your Life When You're Short on Time If you're anything like me, you find that your life's to-do list grows longer each year while your available time seems to grow shorter. Perhaps you make the same resolutions each season (lose weight, eat better, stress less... sound familiar?) only to find that you do not have the freedom in your schedule to fulfill them. I know I find that the longer I live, the more I want to accomplish, and yet the responsibilities I carry continue to grow.

13 Hacks to Improve Your Google Search Even the king of all search engines can be throttled up with a few simple tricks. From finding flights to discovering new music, here are 13 ways to hack Google. Ever since the Internet's dozens of Web crawlers (AltaVista, anyone?) were whittled down to a single alpha engine, pinpointing your online destination has been a relative breeze. But it turns out even Google can be juiced up with a few simple tricks. Type in “set timer for” followed by a number of minutes, or a specific hour you’d like an alert, and Google will graciously comply with an obnoxious beeping once the moment has arrived. Sometimes a memory lapse leaves you searching for the right word. To encompass a wider definition than you’re currently searching for, add a “~” in front of the word, and Google will pull up results from similar terms as well. Instead of slogging through your airline’s website, just type in your flight number and get an easy look at all the important stuff: flight status, times, terminal, and gate.
