  • How To Apply The Law Of Attraction To Realize Your Dreams
    05 December 2020

    Do you feel like your dreams are just too far away? Are people telling you that you should aim lower and be realistic? You can show them all how wrong they are by learning how to apply the law of attraction! This law, as a tool, has incredible power when implemented correctly. We’ll show you how to do it!

    What is the law of attraction?

    The law of attraction is a fairly abstract concept. An oversimplification might help us start to understand: the law of attraction is using the mind to envision our goals clearly and vividly so they will manifest into reality.

    Sounds easy, right? Think about your goals and they will come true. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work this way. Keep in mind that nothing worth keeping will come your way without you having to do anything for it. The same is true for the law of attraction.

    So, it’s not just thinking about what you want and it will happen. You have about 50.000 thoughts each day so that would be a very weird world. It’s about the attention you give to something. The more you give, the more it will grow.

    To some extent, the law of attraction is something you can train yourself to manifest. This is because the effectiveness is impacted by various factors, which we will dive into shortly.

    An important fundamental aspect of this law is that the power of the human mind is incredible. Far more powerful than we can even begin to imagine. And this power can be harnessed, at least to some degree, with the right training and education.

    Another important thing to note about the law of attraction is that it’s working every day. Whether you know it or not and whether you try to use it or not. Where thoughts, feelings, and other factors are involved, the law of attraction goes.

    This means that, if you don’t control it, it controls you. This is, to some extent, similar to the self-fulfilling prophecy, which is discussed in this article. We assume you don’t want to be controlled, so read on and find out how to (re)gain control!

    Important factors

    Several important factors come into play when wanting to learn how to apply the law of attraction. A few of which have been mentioned like thoughts and feelings. We’ll dive into the most important ones below!

    1. Consciousness

    Consciousness is the creator of your world. Your consciousness is different from somebody else’s, so your world is at least slightly different as well. If something does not appear in your consciousness, it doesn’t exist to you. This is important to realize when trying to understand the law of attraction.

    The world moves under the manifestation of everyone’s minds. This makes consciousness the force that moves the world. As we said before, if you don’t control it, it controls you. Meaning that if you let your mind do whatever it pleases, you might never reach your full potential.

    If you rearrange your mind so your consciousness gets a more successful concept of yourself to gravitate towards, you will find yourself to be more successful. The way this works is that your mind doesn’t know the difference between what’s real or not.

    However, another aspect comes into play here, which is desire.

    2. Desire

    What you want your consciousness to believe won’t establish itself. It will not, and cannot be realized until your desire for it is established.

    This means that you should imagine your life with your desire already fulfilled. When you’re able to imagine this vividly, and using all senses, your desire will eventually become reality.

    Another way of saying this is that if you don’t imagine yourself as something other than you already are, you will remain the same. This is why desire is important within the law of attraction.

    The quote below reinforces this statement even further.

    All that has been said about the law of attraction is possible through our imagination. Without imagination, we wouldn’t be able to envision a new or better life. We wouldn’t be able to dream of how we’d want to improve ourselves.

    This is something to be grateful for. We actually have the power to change our lives. We are only slaves to it if we choose to be!

    3. Attention

    Attention gets more powerful the narrower you focus it. This is exactly the goal with regards to the law of attraction. Focus your attention ever so clearly on what you want to accomplish. More specifically on your desire.

    This improves the chance of emotions and thoughts getting actively involved. In turn, improving the chances of successfully applying the law of attraction!

    You will most likely come to notice that giving something all of your attention isn’t easy. Thoughts keep popping in, noise might distract you, or you might get an itch. This all doesn’t work in your favor, but it’s a skill you can perfect.

    Practice daily by focusing your attention on your desire. It will take time, but it’s always worth it. If you can have more control over the information your mind sends you, there’s a lot to be gained!

    4. Persistence

    So we now know that ‘tricking’ your mind by believing something, which isn’t yet true, can make it become reality. A burning desire to reach your envisioned story and a narrow focus on that story are requirements for making this a reality.

    There’s one last thing, though, and that is persistence. If you don’t persist in your desire and your attentional narrowness, nothing will happen. You must persist to reach this state as it will not come easily or quickly.

    I know, this probably isn’t what you wanted to hear, but it’s what you need to hear. If you want the law of attraction to work for you, you need to work for it first!

    A quick case of successful implementation

    A boy experienced his father getting pushed out of business through false accusations. Every day, when traveling to and from work, the boy passes the building his dad used to partially own. This building was established in a prominent place in the heart of the city and had a huge sign with the name of the organization on it.

    It was then, that a desire got sparked in the boy’s mind. He found himself dreaming of what it would be like if his family owned the entire building. One day, he stood before the building, dreaming. The boy imagined clearly how the huge sign spelled his family letters, instead of what was actually on the sign.

    He imagined this twice a day, for two years straight. He persisted. Eventually, the company had to sell the building to remain in business. Now, the boy with his own business wasn’t anywhere near to having the funds available to purchase this building.

    On the actual day of the sale, a stranger offered to buy the property for them, under some unusual conditions. They thought the man was joking, but he explained that he had been following them for a while. The man admired their ability and integrity and therefore found that buying them the property was a good investment.

    This was the day that the law of attraction had made the boy’s dream a reality. The family name was up on the building in huge letters.

    How to apply the law of attraction to realize your dreams

    We hope that the quick case study has given you some ideas for how to apply the law of attraction. Keep in mind that it might not work for you if one of the factors mentioned isn’t strong enough. However, dreaming is always good as it helps to spark motivation. If a by-product of this is the realization of your dreams, why not try it?

    You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. So whether you want that high-positioned job at the biggest firm in your area. Or you want your own business to go international. If you want to travel the world being a guest speaker. Or you want a career in creative industries. It does not matter!

    You can realize your dreams and it’s much more feasible than you might initially think. By being aware of your consciousness, having a burning desire to realize your dream, having the right attention for it, and persistence in it, you can make it a reality!

    Thank you for spending some time here with us, we greatly appreciate your presence! We hope you now know how to apply the law of attraction. If any questions have come up, don’t hesitate to reach out to us through the comment section, email, or social media.

    On Netflix, I don't pay until they disable my account (takes them about 10 days). Then I disable my account and start it over again. This way I always get 40 days for the price of 30.

  • 13 Best Posture Correctors That Work
    05 December 2020
    With many of our lives spent in sedentary, it’s not much of a surprise that many of us suffer from poor posture. Because of all of our habits, there has been a whole industry created in order to support these needs -- supports to aid us in correcting our posture. Posture is important, however, there are all kinds of different posture correctors out there, and not all of them work. Some are agonizing or otherwise cumbersome to deal with. Others may not seem to be working at all in some situations. To ensure that you don’t fall into the same trap, we’ve gone out and did some research into posture correctors that actually work and have created this list for you. What Determines the Best Posture Correctors? When looking at the various posture correctors, we considered a few criteria in our search. As a side note, because so many posture correctors out there haven’t been tested and everyone’s posture is different, we recommend talking to your doctors first before giving any of these a try:
    • Realigns your body - A posture corrector doesn’t only correct posture but rather realigns your body. From spine to joints, the idea is to relieve the aches and pains.
    • Not too punishing - You’re bound to experience pain at first as you put on a posture corrector and immediately go into your default posture. That being said, the pain should be gradual as you begin to adjust yourself over time
    • Easy to wear - You have traditional straps to even a few bras and back bands. Because there is a variety of them, you want to make sure that wearing one of them isn’t going to be complicated or require a lot of work to put on.
    • Can easily be hidden - While some of these can be worn over clothing, some people may prefer to keep these hidden. In those circumstances, these posture correctors are able to be hidden underneath your clothing easily.
    Best Overall - Marakym Looking for the best overall posture corrector look no further than the Marakym brand. They use neoprene material making it comfortable and easy to slip on. The reason this posture corrector is great overall is thanks to the posture brace. It ensures alignment and stability without being too punishing. It’s this aspect where the material shines since neoprene is a strong and yet breathable material. It makes it comfortable for both men and women to wear them under or on top of clothing. Buy Marakym's posture corrector here. Best Design - Evoke Pro One of the big complications with posture correctors is making sure you can get them on properly. Design plays such a huge factor in these circumstances. From our research, the best one we found were the ones from Evoke Pro. This low profile design is simple. All you need to do is adjust the velcro straps. We recommend wearing this over a top as many people have complained about armpit chafing. Furthermore, the material is durable but it might cause skin irritation for some. Buy Evoke Pro's posture corrector here. Best Budget - Bowtus For those on a strict budget, a solid option to make the most of your money is the posture corrector from Bowtus. There are two ways you can wear this: either strap this to your back or if you’re sitting for long periods of time, you can strap these to your knees and waist. No other posture corrector does anything like this. Aside from that, the material is high quality and the back brace is long enough to ensure the straps don’t dig into your armpits. Buy Bowtus's posture corrector here. Best For Back Pain - FlexGuard For those suffering specifically from back pain, you may want to consider getting a posture corrector for your entire back. The back brace posture corrector from FlexGuard Support is very helpful in this since it covers lower and upper back for both men and women. It’s also made neoprene which makes it durable, flexible and comfortable. It also comes in such a large size that it can fit on any person without causing too much discomfort. Buy FlexGuard Support's posture corrector here. Alternative For Back Pain - Copper Fit Another option for those suffering from back pain is having a posture corrector that’s focusing on the lower back. One option that we found was the Copper Fit ICE Compression back brace. Unlike other products on this list, it’s made of 86% polyester and 14% spandex. This makes it highly flexible for men and women. The other aspect about it is that it serves as a cooling pad too. Both the compression and cooling aspects allow relief and support for the aches and pains. It covers muscle stiffness and soreness and promotes circulation too for fast recovery. Buy Copper Fit ICE Back Compression here. Best For Office - Upright While all of these back braces are suitable for office use, not everyone wants to be seeing them. Furthermore keeping them underneath a shirt can be uncomfortable for you as well since the straps can irritate skin. In these circumstances, a small posture corrector is in order. One product that fits the bill is from Upright GO Original. This device is small and strapless, making it easy for you to place it under your clothes. Also since it’s small it doesn’t cause any skin irritation. In terms of function, this device is connected to an app that you can use to train yourself to sit upright. This device uses technology unlike other posture correctors to help you with correcting your posture. On top of that it provides you with a personalized training program that issues daily goals to improve your posture little by little. You even get statistics to get exact measurements and feedback. Buy Upright GO Original here. Best Bra Posture Corrector - Leonisa Bras were originally designed to help with posture though as many of us can relate to, bras can feel restrictive and uncomfortable. Thankfully you’re not going to run into this issue with this bra at all. It’s made of 88% polyamide and 12% elastane making it comfortable while also gently pulling you into a proper posture. It’s actually so comfortable you can use this as everyday wear and not realize you have it on. Buy Leonisa Criss Cross Posture and Back Support Bra here. Best For Upper Body Support - Vokka Another solid option for upper body support is Vokka’s posture corrector which uses a pull on, hook and loop closure type. This particular posture corrector has larger straps along with pads for additional comfort. The material is also highly breathable and strong allowing it to last for a long time. Buy Vokka's posture corrector here. Best For Women Overall - Belin & Daughter A unique posture corrector that’s great for women overall is the one we found made by Berlin & Daughter. This unique design provides additional support for your upper back thanks to the additional strap that wraps underneath the chest. This design is also comfortable and stretchy, allowing you to make adjustments to it as needed. This design also provides two ways that you can wear it, making it a versatile posture corrector for women. Buy Berlin & Daughter posture corrector here. Best Back Brace For Women - GZXISI Another alternative back brace to consider for women is the thoracic and back brace from GZXISI. This comfortable design is designed to fit your body and correct your posture. The brace also has additional padding to ensure it doesn’t rub or cut into armpits or shoulders. Buy GZXISI back brace posture corrector here. Best For Lumbar Support For Men - Aspen Lumbar support is another way of helping with poor posture. After all, a stronger lower back can pick up the slack for the upper back. One, in particular, we found that was great for men was the one from Aspen. The main selling point of this product is that the braces are inelastic. This helps with improving trunk stability which is key in relieving back pain. You can also find it easier for the brace to fit you thanks to the dual pull tabs. This also allows you to focus on compressing certain parts of your lower back. All the while, the brace is comfortable for you to wear. Buy Aspen's posture corrector here. Best For Lumbar Support For Women - Abahub For women looking for more lumbar support, one product we found was from Abahub. This lumbar brace has 4 steel stabilizers which help support your medi-back. It also comes with 2 adjustable elastic straps giving you a customized degree of tightness. The ergonomic design of this brace also permits a full range of motion without any binding or pinching from anywhere making it comfortable to wear and wear over the course of the day. Men can use this as well, however, there are others that are more suitable for men. Buy Abahub's posture corrector here. Best User-Friendly Supporter - Andego The final product we’ll review is the one from Andego. It focuses on the back and boasts easy adjustments, conceals under clothes well, can be adjusted for children as well, and slips on easily. It also comes with additional straps for comfort and is very breathable, an overall great product for anyone to use. Buy Andego's posture corrector here. Bottom Line With so many posture correctors in the market, it can be difficult to find quality products. So many people have run into pitfalls with products breaking, smelling funny, or not being all that helpful. However, we’ve looked at some of the best ones in the market for you and we believe these are the best options out there. So, find the one that’s best for you and improve your posture in the weeks to come.
  • Walmart Is Doing This Again as COVID Surges
    05 December 2020
    <p>The <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/covid-places/" >ongoing COVID-19 pandemic</a> has forced a host of changes upon American retailers. Some have had to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, others have seen their brick-and-mortar locations close, and most have had to change the way that <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/walmart-limiting-capacity/" >shoppers even enter the store</a>. But this week, the COVID pandemic led to good news for the nation's biggest retailer: <strong>Walmart announced that it will pay another round of bonuses to U.S. workers on Christmas Eve</strong>. Read on for the details, and for more news from Walmart that could affect you, check out <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/walmart-delivery-fee/" >Walmart Is Getting Rid of This Starting Dec. 4</a>.</p> <p>In a Dec. 3 announcement, <a href="https://corporate.walmart.com/newsroom/2020/12/03/walmart-announces-more-than-700-million-in-additional-associate-bonuses-tops-2-8-billion-in-total-cash-bonuses-to-associates-in-2020" >Walmart said the bonuses of $300</a> would be paid in cash to full-time workers, while part-timers will receive $150. This will be the fourth time that Walmart has paid a special cash bonus to its staff since the pandemic began, with the festive payment totaling $388 million. This follows a payment of $319 million just before Thanksgiving, on Nov. 24. The company said that this special payment was being made as a gesture of appreciation to the workers who had kept stores open, shelves stocked, and orders fulfilled during an unprecedented time. "As we come to a close on this historic year, I'm filled with gratitude for how our associates have led through one of the most trying periods for our company and country," <strong>John Furner</strong>, president and CEO of Walmart U.S., said in a statement.</p> <p>Walmart will also be extending its COVID-19 leave policy that allows all staff to take up to two weeks of paid leave should they need to stay home either due to illness or a <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/cdc-covid-quarantine/" >quarantine requirement</a>.</p> <p>The backdrop to this is an an ongoing struggle for companies like Walmart and Amazon to retain and reward staff whose jobs <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/coronavirus-heroes/" >have just become far more difficult</a> as a result of the pandemic. In June, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) was warning that 82 <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/grocery-store-covid/" >workers in grocery stores had died from COVID-19</a>, with 11,507 workers infected or exposed. UFCW International President <strong>Marc Perrone</strong> specifically named Walmart and Amazon as <a href="https://www.ufcw.org/press-releases/covidupdate/" >not honoring their obligations to keeping staff safe</a>.</p> <p>Walmart's decision to reward its staff comes after <a href="https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-health-coronavirus-amazon-com/amazon-to-give-500-million-in-holiday-bonuses-to-front-line-u-s-workers-idUKKBN28626L" >Amazon's announcement</a> last week that full-time and part-time staff would be receiving a December bonus of $300 and $150 respectively, following another COVID-19 bonus that the company paid out in June. Target has also announced that it would be <a href="https://corporate.target.com/press/releases/2020/06/target-increases-starting-wage-to-15-thanks-frontl" >raising its minimum wage</a> to $15 per hour.</p> <p>Throughout the pandemic, Walmart has thrived. The company announced a profit of $15.6 billion for the year as of Oct. 31, compared with a $10.7 billion profit in the same period last year, thanks to shoppers stocking up, spending more time at home, and the <a href="https://bestlifeonline.com/walmart-plus/" >growth of Walmart+</a>.</p> <p>Curious about the benefits of Walmart+?

  • Power Ranking Christmas Figures by How Easily I Could Beat the Shit Out of Them
    04 December 2020

    The holiday season is in full swing and with it comes the full-on bombardment of Christmas movies, decorations, and general seasonal cheer that accompanies it. Like many of you, I take a good look at these well-known holiday figures and have one thought on my mind – can I defeat them in hand to hand combat?

    As such, I’ve prepared a thorough list of the most significant Christmas characters and ranked them by how easily I could beat the shit out of them. Before we get started, it’s important to know who I am and what kind of fighter you are evaluating. Some quick measureables:

    Height: 6’0 (believably 6’1 if necessary)

    Weight: 195

    Strength: Dwindling by the day but I could help you move and probably would only need a hand with your couch and/or dresser.

    Speed: Solid in short bursts. Any exercise beyond 15 minutes will ruin me.

    High School Football Experience: Widely considered the most average North Jersey Non-Public B quarterback/safety of the last 15 years. Don’t believe me? Check tape.

    All this adds up to your standard 27 year old man who has definitely moved on from a pretty insignificant athletic peak and is ready to take on any able bodied man, woman or magical creature.

    Let’s get into it.

    Power Ranking Christmas Figures by How Easily I Could Beat the Shit out of Them 15. The Little Drummer Boy

    He seems like a nice kid but he’s just a boy. If push came to shove, I could pretty easily grab his snare and smash it onto his skull, rendering him unconscious, if not dead. I’m not saying I want to do that. I’m just saying I could.

    14. Baby Jesus

    Look, this is a newborn child, wrapped in swaddling clothes that limit his range of motion. I would have no trouble. The only thing that concerns me is that he’s the son of God. I’m pretty sure God wouldn’t let Jesus die before he fulfilled his purpose on Earth. Especially at the hands of a once mediocre athlete like myself. But who am I to question God’s will?

    13. This fucking kid from the Polar Express The most insufferable child I’ve ever met

    I hate this smug little shit. I have no problem with being a nerd but this kid is such a goddam know-it-all. It drives me crazy. I’d take great pleasure in smashing his little glasses like a twig and watching him run blindly into an oncoming magical train.

    12. Mariah Carey

    I don’t hit women. But if she attacked me and I had no choice but to defend myself, I think I could handle her. There is the question of her bodyguards, but I have no knowledge of her security staff so I’ll just assume she is alone and ready to die at my hand.

    11. Frosty the Snowman

    One of the nicest sentient snowmen you’ll ever met. It doesn’t change the fact that he will melt the second I draw him into a climate above 40 degrees. I don’t want to have to snap his twig arms, break his button nose and gauge out his coal eyes, but I will. If it means protecting myself, my family and my country, I would have no choice.

    This would also be a reasonable option
    10. Scrooge McDuck

    This is where it starts to get tricky. I could confidently beat up a duck. Hell, I could beat up at least 7 ducks if I really wanted to and their beaks weren’t too sharp. But a duck with human-like intelligence? That can accumulate wealth over the course of his lifetime and develop enough emotional intelligence to realize the error of his miserly ways? That changes things. I’d still emerge victorious, but not without a fight.

    This is just obscene wealth. I owe it to the middle class to skin this duck-man alive and mount his severed head on a stake.
    9. Christmas Tree Guy on My Street Who Overcharged Me

    Fuck this guy. He really ripped me off. It’s really on me for not realizing you can negotiate these kind of things and blindly paying him whatever he asked, but at the end of the day, I expect some human decency and a more reasonable tree pricing model. He’s taller, stronger and more rugged than I am but I think my blind anger would lead to a quick knockout or at least someone breaking us up and ‘holding me back,’ which counts as a win in my book.

    8. The Virgin Mary

    On Christmas Day, she will have literally just given birth in a barn. She’d be in rough shape. If this poor woman tried to start a brawl with me, I would put her down for the count without breaking a sweat. HOWEVER there is one thing to consider – the presence of Joseph, who I fear deeply. I do not fuck with carpenters. A man’s gotta have a code.

    He has strong callused hands and access to a saw. I’m not going anywhere near him.
    7. Michael Buble

    Look, he’s in his 50s and while he’s incredibly handsome, he’s not what we call physically imposing. If I wanted to, I could get him in a chokehold and damage his precious little windpipe so badly he’ll never sing again. But, I don’t want to deny the world his gift. Especially during the holiday season.

    6. The Three Wise Men

    I could defeat each wise man on their own without breaking a sweat. ‘Wise men’ are basically just magicians, a group of people not known their fighting prowess. But if the three of them teamed up and frankincense and myrrh started flying around? Different story. If I had access to pre-workout, I might stand a chance, but even that would be a long shot.

    Gotta admire this fit. Takes a lot of confidence to rock those pants.5. Santa Claus

    Putting aside the magical elements, he has what is called “man strength” which I’m personally still lacking and hoping will kick in once I turn 30. As it stands, my only option would be poisoning the milk and cookies, but I don’t really know where I would get poison and I’m too scared to Google it and end up on an FBI list. You win this round Santa.

    4. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

    I am man enough to admit that I could not beat up a reindeer. I don’t even know where I would start to be perfectly honest. I certainly couldn’t survive more than 1 or 2 kicks from Rudolph’s hooves. If that catches me in the ribs or god forbid the skull? I’m tapping out with my pride damaged but my life intact.

    3. Fred Clause

    Personally, I believe Fred Clause is one of the most powerful movies of all time. You gotta feel for the poor guy and relate to how he’s constantly outshone by his younger brother and battles to find his own place in the world. On top of that, Vince Vaughn is like 6’6 and he has the entire Claus family behind him after he made his peace with them in Act III. Not a fair fight.

    2. Yukon Cornelius

    One of the biggest badasses in cinematic history. His beard alone is enough to scare me off. Add on the fact that he literally licks an ice-pick before he fights and single-handedly took down the Abominable Snowman? We’re just in different leagues.

    1. The Grinch

    It’s hard to tell just how big he is, since he’s generally standing next to Whos, but it’s safe to assume he’s at least 7 feet tall. That kind of reach alone would make it impossible for me to land any punches on him. It also doesn’t help that he’s a brilliant inventor and has the capacity for great cruelty. My only shot would be long-term health complications after his heart grew two sizes in the span of an hour, but I don’t want to bank on that. I’d lay down my sword if he challenged me to a duel and there’s nothing wrong with that.

    He’s also objectively disgusting. I would not want to wrestle him or even touch his hair. Really, really gross.

  • Need Some Gift Ideas? Consider These Categories of Items to Help Spark Ideas
    04 December 2020

    'Tis the season to be jolly, and it's also the season of thinking about gift-giving.

    In my family, gift-giving will be very different this year, because we won't be together the way we usually are.

    We talked about how we'd handle gift-giving under these unexpected circumstances, because we didn't want anyone to have hurt feelings because of differences in expectations.

    As a result, I'm not buying gifts for some family members—and I find that with other family members, I'm all the more focused on gift-giving, because I want to show my love in this way since I won't be there in person.

    As I'm trying to come up with great gift ideas, here are some categories I find myself pondering for possibilities:

    Sampler sets. Samplers are available for just about everything, and samplers are so fun. You don't have the pressure of picking one item, and your recipient gets the fun of trying different variations. I've seen samplers for honey, tea, perfume, cocktail bitters.

    Whimsical items. These days, more than ever, we could use a little fun and silliness in our lives! Temporary tattoos, flying wish paper, mBerry Miracle Fruit (makes sour things taste sweet, so fun to try!), kazoo.

    Things that delight and comfort the body and the five senses. Just as we can use a little whimsy, we also need some comfort. A soft throw, potted herbs, noise-cancelling headphones.

    Items that help enthusiasts get more enjoyment out of what they already like to do. Great tools are such a delight. That might mean a better e-reader for someone who loves to read, smart speaker or better earbuds for a music-lover, a set of great knives for a cook.

    Fun examples of practical things. A collapsible umbrella with a great pattern, a stylish alarm clock, a creamer in the shape of a cow, felt-tip pens in interesting colors.

    Items that make life more convenient. A clip-on reading light, a platform to create a standing desk, Command Hooks—I only recently discovered Command Hooks! They are amazing.

    Personalized things. Personalizing a gift makes it seem much more thoughtful, I think. These days, it's easy to order items like mugs, tote bags, scratch pads, stationery, and water bottles with a photo or saying you choose (this is one of my sister Elizabeth's favorite gifts to give). Or you can order items with someone's name or monogram.

    Items made from children's artwork. I have a laminator, and I used to laminate my daughters' art to be "place mats" for the grandparents. There are also many sites that will help you turn your child's artwork into gifts.

    Items that cost nothing and take up no space! Help someone sign up for a library card or give a "coupon" for clutter-clearing or errand-running. Or give someone "The Gift of a Podcast"!

    I can't resist mentioning that my online courses also make great gifts. Give someone the structure and accountability they need to clear clutter, invest in happiness, or grow in self-understanding.

    What are some other helpful categories to consider, as we try to find thoughtful gifts for the people in our lives? I need suggestions!

  • What I Read This Month: November 2020
    04 December 2020

    For three years now, every Monday morning, I've posted a photo on my Facebook Page of the books I finished during the week, with the tag #GretchenRubinReads.

    I get a big kick out of this weekly habit—it’s a way to shine a spotlight on all the terrific books that I’ve read.

    As I write about in my bookBetter Than Before, for most of my life, my habit was to finish any book that I started. Finally, I realized that this approach meant that I spent time reading books that bored me, and I had less time for books that I truly enjoy. These days, I put down a book if I don’t feel like finishing it, so I have more time to do my favorite kinds of reading.

    This habit means that if you see a book included in the #GretchenRubinReads photo, you know that I liked it well enough to read to the last page.

    When I read books related to an area I’m researching for a writing project, I carefully read and take notes on the parts that interest me, and skim the parts that don’t. So I may list a book that I’ve partly read and partly skimmed. For me, that still “counts.”

    If you’d like more ideas for habits to help you get more reading done, read this post or download my "Reading Better Than Before" worksheet.

    You can also follow me on Goodreads where I track books I’ve read.

    If you want to see what I read last month, the full list is here.

  • Sleepwalking: Causes, Treatments, and Common Myths
    04 December 2020

    What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about sleep? Chances are, it’s cozy beds, lazy mornings, and that pang of sadness at the thought that you’re not getting as much as you’d like.

    But for so-called sleepwalkers, sleep is associated with entirely different feelings. These include mystery, adventure, and, sometimes, even danger.

    Sleepwalking has been a fascinating phenomenon for centuries. Equally represented in classical art (Shakespeare’s Macbeth or Bellini’s La Sonnambula), pop culture, and thrilling news articles, it’s a captivating subject for both doctors and laymen.

    But why do people sleepwalk? And is there anything you can do about it?

    Somnambulism

    According to its simplest definition, sleepwalking or somnambulism is “an abnormal condition of sleep in which motor acts (such as walking) are performed.” It affects 6.9% of the world’s populationbut it is prevalent among children, with adults suffering much less often.

    The act of sleepwalking happens in the NREM (deep) phase of sleep, approximately two hours after falling asleep. Most people affected will sit up, walk around, or talk during a sleepwalking episode. Nonetheless, there have been reports of people doing more complex actions as well, like leaving their house or even driving.

    Although the condition is still a relative mystery, we know that it’s most often caused by:

    • insufficient rest
    • stress and anxiety
    • fever
    • substance abuse
    • breathing issues such as sleep apnea
    • gastrointestinal issues
    • Parkinson’s disease
    • Restless Leg Syndrome
    • medications like Ambien

    But wait, there’s more – patients rarely remember their actions during the night, but they will often feel the consequences of poor sleep the following day. Most often, they will feel exhausted, find it difficult to focus, and suffer from a bad mood.

    Some research suggests that somnambulism in adulthood could cause health issues like Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and cognitive deterioration. For this reason, it needs to be understood and treated – particularly if it still occurs regularly after childhood.

    The Myths

    Seeing that somnambulism is a strange occurrence and relatively rare after adolescence, there are many misconceptions about it.

    Perhaps the most common one is that you should never wake up a sleepwalker, as it may cause them harm.

    Now, while some sleepwalkers may become agitated or show resistance when you try to help them during the night, this is nothing but a myth. If a loved one is a somnambulist and they’re performing actions that may cause them or others harm, you should always try to get them to safety.

    While waking them up may be the easiest solution, it could cause disorientation. So, gently guiding them back to bed is going to be your best course of action.

    Another common misconception about the condition is that it’s harmless. And, yes, in most cases, this is true. However, some patients may suffer from more severe symptoms. These could require more elaborate precautions.

    If you or a person in your household has a tendency to do more complex actions in their sleep, you will need to have a few safety rituals in place:

    • Make sure that you lock all doors and windows.
    • Hide keys and put dangerous items out of reach.
    • Finally, remove tripping hazards, and do your best to make the space as safe as possible.

    This way, you’ll have done your best to prevent any accidents.

    Sleepwalking Treatments

    Unfortunately, there is still no such thing as a 100% effective treatment for sleepwalking. Instead, for most somnambulists, the goal will be to address any underlying causes and hope that sleep patterns will return to normal as a consequence. And the most obvious place to start is taking a closer look at sleeping habits and patterns.

    For most people, the cause of sleepwalking is exhaustion or a breathing problem. In these cases, taking steps to fix these issues should decrease the chances of the episodes repeating themselves. Positive sleep hygiene has multiple benefits on overall health. Not only is it an effective self-care tactic, but it could also be the only treatment required for sleepwalking.

    Stress can also increase the chances of somnambulist activity. So, addressing stress levels during the day and finding effective ways to relax before bedtime can lower the likelihood of sleepwalking. Overall, it’s not a bad idea to do some light exercise during the day, take a warm bath before bed, and do some reading. All these actions may help the body and mind wind down and prepare for a good night’s sleep.

    Of course, the symptoms could be caused by medication, illness, or substance abuse. In these cases, you should consult with a medical professional. They will adjust drug dosage, prescribe medication, or introduce therapy such as anticipatory awakenings. These will help prevent unwanted nighttime activity and the chances of serious injury.

    The Takeaway

    As you can imagine, sleepwalking is a complicated occurrence. The medical community is still trying to figure out all the causes and best treatments. Notwithstanding, the consensus is that it tends to be a harmless habit.

    If you’re a parent of a somnambulist child, start by paying closer attention to their sleeping habits and bedtime routine. Make small changes. Try to manage energy and stress levels and ensure they’re getting enough sleep during the night. This may be all the remedy they need.

    If, however, the condition continues into adulthood, it’s not a bad idea to consult with a medical professional. Generally, a doctor will have a better way to diagnose and treat somnambulism. They will detect any underlying causes and prescribe the right therapy. This way, they’ll be able to keep you or your loved ones safe from unwanted nighttime adventures.

  • 13 Best Posture Correctors That Work
    04 December 2020
    With many of our lives spent in sedentary, it’s not much of a surprise that many of us suffer from poor posture. Because of all of our habits, there has been a whole industry created in order to support these needs -- supports to aid us in correcting our posture. Posture is important, however, there are all kinds of different posture correctors out there, and not all of them work. Some are agonizing or otherwise cumbersome to deal with. Others may not seem to be working at all in some situations. To ensure that you don’t fall into the same trap, we’ve gone out and did some research into posture correctors that actually work and have created this list for you. What Determines the Best Posture Correctors? When looking at the various posture correctors, we considered a few criteria in our search. As a side note, because so many posture correctors out there haven’t been tested and everyone’s posture is different, we recommend talking to your doctors first before giving any of these a try:
    • Realigns your body - A posture corrector doesn’t only correct posture but rather realigns your body. From spine to joints, the idea is to relieve the aches and pains.
    • Not too punishing - You’re bound to experience pain at first as you put on a posture corrector and immediately go into your default posture. That being said, the pain should be gradual as you begin to adjust yourself over time
    • Easy to wear - You have traditional straps to even a few bras and back bands. Because there is a variety of them, you want to make sure that wearing one of them isn’t going to be complicated or require a lot of work to put on.
    • Can easily be hidden - While some of these can be worn over clothing, some people may prefer to keep these hidden. In those circumstances, these posture correctors are able to be hidden underneath your clothing easily.
    Best Overall - Marakym Looking for the best overall posture corrector look no further than the Marakym brand. They use neoprene material making it comfortable and easy to slip on. The reason this posture corrector is great overall is thanks to the posture brace. It ensures alignment and stability without being too punishing. It’s this aspect where the material shines since neoprene is a strong and yet breathable material. It makes it comfortable for both men and women to wear them under or on top of clothing. Buy Marakym's posture corrector here. Best Design - Evoke Pro One of the big complications with posture correctors is making sure you can get them on properly. Design plays such a huge factor in these circumstances. From our research, the best one we found were the ones from Evoke Pro. This low profile design is simple. All you need to do is adjust the velcro straps. We recommend wearing this over a top as many people have complained about armpit chafing. Furthermore, the material is durable but it might cause skin irritation for some. Buy Evoke Pro's posture corrector here. Best Budget - Bowtus For those on a strict budget, a solid option to make the most of your money is the posture corrector from Bowtus. There are two ways you can wear this: either strap this to your back or if you’re sitting for long periods of time, you can strap these to your knees and waist. No other posture corrector does anything like this. Aside from that, the material is high quality and the back brace is long enough to ensure the straps don’t dig into your armpits. Buy Bowtus's posture corrector here. Best For Back Pain - FlexGuard For those suffering specifically from back pain, you may want to consider getting a posture corrector for your entire back. The back brace posture corrector from FlexGuard Support is very helpful in this since it covers lower and upper back for both men and women. It’s also made neoprene which makes it durable, flexible and comfortable. It also comes in such a large size that it can fit on any person without causing too much discomfort. Buy FlexGuard Support's posture corrector here. Alternative For Back Pain - Copper Fit Another option for those suffering from back pain is having a posture corrector that’s focusing on the lower back. One option that we found was the Copper Fit ICE Compression back brace. Unlike other products on this list, it’s made of 86% polyester and 14% spandex. This makes it highly flexible for men and women. The other aspect about it is that it serves as a cooling pad too. Both the compression and cooling aspects allow relief and support for the aches and pains. It covers muscle stiffness and soreness and promotes circulation too for fast recovery. Buy Copper Fit ICE Back Compression here. Best For Office - Upright While all of these back braces are suitable for office use, not everyone wants to be seeing them. Furthermore keeping them underneath a shirt can be uncomfortable for you as well since the straps can irritate skin. In these circumstances, a small posture corrector is in order. One product that fits the bill is from Upright GO Original. This device is small and strapless, making it easy for you to place it under your clothes. Also since it’s small it doesn’t cause any skin irritation. In terms of function, this device is connected to an app that you can use to train yourself to sit upright. This device uses technology unlike other posture correctors to help you with correcting your posture. On top of that it provides you with a personalized training program that issues daily goals to improve your posture little by little. You even get statistics to get exact measurements and feedback. Buy Upright GO Original here. Best Bra Posture Corrector - Leonisa Bras were originally designed to help with posture though as many of us can relate to, bras can feel restrictive and uncomfortable. Thankfully you’re not going to run into this issue with this bra at all. It’s made of 88% polyamide and 12% elastane making it comfortable while also gently pulling you into a proper posture. It’s actually so comfortable you can use this as everyday wear and not realize you have it on. Buy Leonisa Criss Cross Posture and Back Support Bra here. Best For Upper Body Support - Vokka Another solid option for upper body support is Vokka’s posture corrector which uses a pull on, hook and loop closure type. This particular posture corrector has larger straps along with pads for additional comfort. The material is also highly breathable and strong allowing it to last for a long time. Buy Vokka's posture corrector here. Best For Women Overall - Belin & Daughter A unique posture corrector that’s great for women overall is the one we found made by Berlin & Daughter. This unique design provides additional support for your upper back thanks to the additional strap that wraps underneath the chest. This design is also comfortable and stretchy, allowing you to make adjustments to it as needed. This design also provides two ways that you can wear it, making it a versatile posture corrector for women. Buy Berlin & Daughter posture corrector here. Best Back Brace For Women - GZXISI Another alternative back brace to consider for women is the thoracic and back brace from GZXISI. This comfortable design is designed to fit your body and correct your posture. The brace also has additional padding to ensure it doesn’t rub or cut into armpits or shoulders. Buy GZXISI back brace posture corrector here. Best For Lumbar Support For Men - Aspen Lumbar support is another way of helping with poor posture. After all, a stronger lower back can pick up the slack for the upper back. One, in particular, we found that was great for men was the one from Aspen. The main selling point of this product is that the braces are inelastic. This helps with improving trunk stability which is key in relieving back pain. You can also find it easier for the brace to fit you thanks to the dual pull tabs. This also allows you to focus on compressing certain parts of your lower back. All the while, the brace is comfortable for you to wear. Buy Aspen's posture corrector here. Best For Lumbar Support For Women - Abahub For women looking for more lumbar support, one product we found was from Abahub. This lumbar brace has 4 steel stabilizers which help support your medi-back. It also comes with 2 adjustable elastic straps giving you a customized degree of tightness. The ergonomic design of this brace also permits a full range of motion without any binding or pinching from anywhere making it comfortable to wear and wear over the course of the day. Men can use this as well, however, there are others that are more suitable for men. Buy Abahub's posture corrector here.
