They overthink every little problem until it becomes bigger and scarier and it actually is. Overthink positive things until they don’t look so positive anymore. Or overanalyze and deconstruct things and so the happiness that comes from just enjoying something in the moment disappears. Now, thinking things through can be a great thing of course. I know.

7 Morning Hacks to Jumpstart Your Day I’ll be the first to admit that I’m really not a morning person. I’ve tried to get myself going in the early hours of the morning, but I’ve always been more of a night owl – my creative juices seem to flow better in the later hours. So I’d be the last person to suggest that you need to force yourself out of bed before your body and mind are really ready to do so. But when you do get up, you may find that you’re pressed for time and have fallen behind the rest of the crowd in what you need to get done during the day. Just because you’re not up as the sun rises doesn’t mean that you can’t put yourself in a position to make sure that the day ahead will be a productive one. On that note, here are 10 “morning hacks” to jumpstart your day: 1. Rather than make your way to the kitchen for that cup of coffee, head to the bathroom and splash some cold water on your face. 2. 3. I keep my alarm clock across the room so that I have to actually get out of bed to turn it off. 4. 5. 6. 7.

The Actual Difference Between Women Who Are Hot And Who Are Beautiful Women. We’re curvy, skinny, hood, pretty, cute, ethnic, bad, dime pieces, unicorns, babes, pieces of tail, juicy, fine, sexy, foxes, sultry, voluptuous… The list goes on. When was the last time you heard a man describe a woman with an adjective that wasn’t dripping in sexual innuendos and defaming premises? When was the last time you heard a man describe a woman by something that compliments her soul and her inherent elegance? When was the last time you heard a man describe a woman as beautiful? There’s been a loss of respect when it comes to admiring women, shifting towards describing us as objects, rather than people. A large portion of today’s men are momentarily allured by hair extensions, large chests, big bottoms and stilettos. What about the women who don’t want to indulge in the male fantasy? When did women become forced to acquiesce to this standard, or otherwise get lost in the crowd? It’s time these men are reminded of the difference between hot and beautiful.

A Time Comes In Your Life When You Finally Get it. This is Your Awakening. A time comes in your life when you finally get it. When, in the midst of all your fears and insanity, you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out… ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying and blaming and struggling to hold on. This is your awakening. You realize it’s time to stop hoping and waiting for something to change, or for happiness, safety and security to magically appear over the next horizon. You realize that in the real world there aren’t always fairy tale endings, and that any guarantee of “happily ever after” must begin with you… and in the process a sense of serenity is born of acceptance. You awaken to the fact that you are not perfect and that not everyone will always love, appreciate or approve of who or what you are… and that’s OK. You learn the importance of loving and championing yourself… and in the process a sense of new found confidence is born of self-approval. You learn to open up to new worlds and different points of view.

15 Plants & Herbs That Can Boost Lung Health, Heal Respiratory Infections & R... When it comes to taking herbs for medicinal purposes, it seems the mainstream belief is that they are not as effective and not worth taking. While the effectiveness of herbs has not been studied deeply to determine how well they work across the entire population, the same could be said for most pharmaceutical drugs. Much of the time, pharmaceutical drugs attempt to mimic a compound that occurs in nature (herbs), but often bring the risk of side effects in the process. Safety is one of the most critical areas of review amongst herbs and drugs. According to stats released by the American Association of Poison Control Centers, no deaths have been reported due to the use and consumption of herbs.[4] However, pharmaceutical drugs and physician prescribed medications kill approximately one million Americans each year. While it is important to note that herbal medicines can be lethal in extreme doses, it appears their safety is much greater than that of pharmaceutical drugs. [2] 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

A 5-Step Technique for Producing Ideas circa 1939 „Няма причина в България заплатите да са толкова ниски“ – разговор с генералния директор на МВФ Кристин Лагард | Бъзикилийкс - Истината такава, каквато можеше да бъде!? В новия брой на българското издание на списание “Forbes” бе публикувано интересно интервю с шефката на Международния валутен фонд, касаещо процесите на промяна в обществените настроения по света, както и коментар относно икономическото положение на българското население. Интервюто съдържа интересни и изненадващи твърдения за човек принадлежащ към финансовия бранш и затова го препечатваме изцяло: – Г-жо Лагард, как приемате социалните процеси, протичащи в голяма част от западните държави, чиито корен е недоволството и съпротивата срещу настоящата финансова ситуация, и въобще методиката, по която функционират и се ръководят финансовите институции в нашето съвремие? – Смятам тези процеси за полезни и спомагащи за очистване на обществото от опасни явления в света на финансите – явления които доведоха до световната финансова криза, – които, ако не бъдат спрени, биха могли да доведат до много тежки последици за човечеството като цяло.

Creative Problem Solving with SCAMPER SCAMPER is a technique you can use to spark your creativity and help you overcome any challenge you may be facing. In essence, SCAMPER is a general-purpose checklist with idea-spurring questions — which is both easy to use and surprisingly powerful. It was created by Bob Eberle in the early 70s, and it definitely stood the test of time. In this posting, I present a complete SCAMPER primer, along with two free creativity-boosting resources: a downloadable reference mind map and an online tool that generates random questions to get you out of a rut whenever you need. SCAMPER Primer SCAMPER is based on the notion that everything new is a modification of something that already exists. S = SubstituteC = CombineA = AdaptM = MagnifyP = Put to Other UsesE = Eliminate (or Minify)R = Rearrange (or Reverse) To use the SCAMPER technique, first state the problem you’d like to solve or the idea you’d like to develop. Consider, for instance, the problem "How can I increase sales in my business?" Combine

Yakovlev’s photos span a wide spectrum of dance styles, from ballet to break-dancing, but it was his flour-filled photo “Big bang theory” that has garnered the most recent attention.
