Christmas Cards Reveal Personality

Tuesday, Dec, 24 2013

CHRISTMAS CARDS REVEAL PERSONALITY

The type of Christmas card you send reveals your true personality according to Dr. Ellnor Kinarthy. The expert tells what each type of card says about you:

Religious scenes
You spend lots of time deep in thought and you value the true meaning of Christmas. You like to help others and often donate time and money to charity. You value the traditional family in which the wife stays home while the husband goes off to work.

Family photos
You're a busy person who likes new and different experiences, like living in different places, eating at new restaurants and tasting different foods. But Christmas gives you time to pause and reflect on how much family and friends mean to you.

Humorous
You're a fun-loving optimist who can see the humor in even bad situations, but you're also very sensitive to other people. You're a good listener who gives friends a shoulder to cry on. In addition, you love animals and are inclined to have pets.

Winter scenes
You're very competitive and throw yourself into everything, even your hobbies. But you enjoy pictures of winter because they remind you that it's also important to relax and enjoy the tranquility of the season.

Santa cards
You're a people-oriented person who likes going to big parties and enjoys making new friends. You consider all those tasty Christmas foods the best part of the season, and like Santa, you have a tendency to put on a little weight.

Christmas trees
You take pride in your personal appearance and your home. You have an artistic nature and are very creative. Your strong sense of beauty shows through in your home, which probably looks like it was professionally decorated.

Current themes (like Santa compiling his list on a computer)
You are very future-oriented and want to be ready for what tomorrow brings. You like video games, new car shows and all the latest gadgets. You may also be well-informed about investments.

Outrageous Markups

Monday, Dec, 23 2013

OUTRAGEOUS MARKUPS YOU PAY EVERY DAY

Learn smart ways to avoid the hidden costs of convenience.

4000% Bottled water
A $2 bottle of water costs only about 5 cents to produce.

1275% Movie theater popcorn
Theaters know that viewers will pay more for movie snacks, so they hike up the prices: A bag of popcorn that costs 37 cents to make can easily sell for $5.

300% Wine at a restaurant
Restaurants routinely charge as much as $30 for bottles of wine that retail online for $7 or $8. Check in advance whether the restaurant allows BYOB, or opt for a nonalcoholic beverage.

40% Precut produce
Precut fruits and vegetables may save you time, but they definitely won't save you money: Grocery stores charge almost 1.5 times more for precut than for uncut produce. (readersdigest.com)

Boost Your Brain Power

Friday, Dec, 20 2013

BOOST YOUR BRAINPOWER

Good news. You can boost your brainpower and make "senior brain-drain" nothing but a bad memory just by doing mental exercises and adopting the right diet and lifestyle. Keep your mind youthfully resilient with techniques outlined by Dr. Molly Wagster of the National Institute on aging in Bethesda, MD.

Eat berries
Blueberries can rejuvenate the brain. Cranberries and strawberries also have a beneficial effect on brainpower.

Exercise
Aerobic exercise can help improve brain function. Exercise also prompts the release of endorphins thought to fend off depression.

Reduce stress
Stress releases cortisol, a hormone that can damage the brain's memory center. Meditation, relaxation and keeping a positive mental outlook will help you reduce stress.

Eat foods rich with vitamin E
Vitamin E, found in oils, green leafy vegetables and whole grains, is a vital brain protector. It promotes mental alertness.

Use your opposite hand
Most of us rely on our dominant hand to do simple tasks. Using your opposite hand for brushing your teeth, eating or working a computer mouse will engage both lobes of the brain and improve hand-brain co-ordination.

Challenge your brain
Discard the calculator and do the math in your head.

Get plenty of sleep
Sleep-deprived subjects score 30 percent lower on memory tests. Most people need 8 to 8.5 hours of sleep each night.
