Reading the News Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

29 Jul

Too much reading or watching the news is hazardous to your health.

Too much information, too much commentary will surely make you ill.

Reading News Is Hazardous

 

 

There should be a warning label on TV remotes:

“Watching TV cable news can be dangerous to your health.”

 

 

Forget opioid addiction – news junkies are now checking into rehab centers by the scores.

Take a break from breaking news!

Before your head explodes,

may I suggest some pleasure reading? […]

20 Jun

Technology: Because You Can

Technology is amazing.

Timesaving.

Stimulating.

Alternative Uses for your Anti-Anxiety Blanket

 

Anti-Anxiety blankets for adults are all the rage.

They come in varying weights – heavy and heavier.

They are advertised as being the solution to all of your problems with insomnia, anxiety, depression, Asperger’s, chronic back pain, red velvet cupcake cravings, extreme couponing, and the bovine blues.

Plus, they are more FUN than a strait jacket!

However

If for some reason, your weighted blanket doesn’t calm you, but instead causes sleep paralysis or nightmares that you’re being suffocated by a colossal beanbag…

Alternative Uses for your Anti-Anxiety Blanket

Eureka!

Day by Day: Are You Having a Bad Day?

29 Mar

Are you having a bad day?

Or a good 24 hours?

Classic Judith Viorst children’s book

 

Two Months of Bad Days

According to a recent study (don’t you hate recent studies?)

The average American has two months of ‘bad days’ every year.

60 days!

This is darn near one-sixth of your entire year.

Bad Day

Let us define… “A Bad Day”

“My wireless went out for five minutes and I panicked. It wasn’t pretty. ”

“I had to wait in line for ten minutes at Starbucks for my afternoon Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato. I thought I’d die.” […]

Noise!

It is like awesome that we have this community chat group to share our feelings. Peace, love and friendship to all.

Imagine my consternation when lounging on my balcony this morning, enjoying the gentle rays of the sun, sipping my artisinal chai tea…

… when an eardrum-piercing racket made my breakfast ritual – let alone any silent prayer and meditation – impossible.
