ASMR Relaxation and Tingle Braingasms

Do you get tingles when you stare into a drawing, or when you hear a type of repetitive sound? Are you burnt out from long days at work or essentially bored out of your mind watching the same fast paced and extremely jolting television commericals? ASMR is a new entertainment style on youtube and other video sharing sites.

5 steps to regaining confidence

  Confidence is part of the human soul that affects us all. There are two primary aspects of life that can affect confidence: Number 1: Our own personal experiences. For example, I can remember my earliest experience of losing confidence when I was aged 10, and I missed a penalty at a soccer match. It left me upset, unable to face people at the game, my team mates and their parents. It shook me so hard as a kid that I didn’t want to experience or a take a penalty again, and for a couple of years I didn’t.

Benefits of Having God

How it pays to have faith in God, religion or the associated paraphernalia (let me call it ‘it’ for the remaining part)? • ‘It’ frees up time, energy and motivation since you’ve offloaded a part of your mental baggage to a third party vendor. This saved time can be reinvested in something productive or interesting. • ‘It’ helps you to uphold your self-confidence that you’ll be protected, no matter what comes in your way. • ‘It’ helps coping up with critical life and death situations. As it’s often said, when medicines fail, prayers are the only resort. • Less stress due to uncertainties means less prone to diabetes, hypertension, and cardiac arrest; in short, a healthier lifestyle. • When you experience injustice or wrongdoing on […]

Six Proven Secrets To Turn An Angry Customer To A Most Loyal One

  I saw a sign in front of a business centre one day that read, “Dissatisfied with our service? Please let us know. Satisfied with our service? Kindly tell others”. That got me thinking. Different customers have different ways of reacting when they are unsatisfied with your business. Some will walk away without saying a word, and will never return. Some on the other hand will tell you what’s wrong, but will do so nicely. However, there are equally the irate customers. They are unsatisfied about a product or service too. However, they won’t mind creating a scene so far as they vent their anger. Most times, their concerns are genuine. But even when they are not, they still need an outlet for their anger. […]

How To Use Regret To Fuel Your Dreams

“Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.” ― Sydney Smith Regret prison. That’s a horrific place to be, isn’t it?
