Luckily I’ve never experienced one of these. I do have friends, readers, and family that have experienced them. My sister says it’s like someone is standing on your chest and you can’t breathe. My Dad has had panic attacks for most of his life, even though no one knew what they were at the time.
Take a look at this video. It will provide you with some terrific information.
I am currently watching a three-part series on secret societies and really enjoying it. This motivated me to find a short video for you to watch. I hope you enjoy it.
For those of you who are interested, I have a subscription to Curiosity Stream. The $20 per year price tag is well worth it. So many informative shows, with a huge variety of topics to choose from. I am not an affiliate but really enjoy watching the shows here. I learn a truckload each time I watch a new show.
Have a great Tuesday, folks. Enjoy the short little video and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
It’s March! Can you believe how fast this year is going? Today commemorates Women’s History Month, So most of my postings this month on Tuesday and Wednesday will focus on famous women throughout history.
To start off, here’s a short educational video on the Women’s Suffrage March on Washington. It’s a short video, but very educational.
For those of you who fell off the exercise wagon over the last couple years of COVID, here’s a video that will give you some things to think about when you begin again. For me, exercise helps me sleep. When I wasn’t exercising consistently, my sleep patterns were thrown way off, my appetite was off, and my energy levels were in the pits.
After reading Tim Ferris’ 4-hour body last year, I also realized that much of the hype surrounding supplements, exercise routines where you are killing yourself everyday in the gym, are all falsehoods. A few good workouts a week can do the trick and they can be done in the comfort of your home or at a gym.
I hope you learn something from this video and if you are not exercising, find a little motivation in this video to begin something, anything to get moving.
Over the holidays, I experienced a huge case of insomnia. I would be tired, but when I laid down, I could not sleep, so up I would get. This went on for a few months. I discovered or recognized I was drinking too much caffeine and eating too many sweets too close to bedtime. I changed this around and began limiting my caffeine intake to before Noon and no more afternoon Monsters or coffee. That was the trick. Now I’m back on track.
Here’s a short little video to help you understand how important it is for the brain to get some sleep so it can reorganize all the day’s inputs. It really is important, not just for the body, but for the brain. It needs some “off” time to function properly during the day.
Here’s to a great night’s sleep. When it goes away, it can be a real drag.
I wanted to share this video from TedED, because it touched on many of the reasons why I enjoy reading. Not only is reading a great way to learn, but it is relaxing, gives me an excuse to sit in my easy chair with a nice cup of coffee or tea, and engage with a story, learn something, or do a little of both.
I hope you enjoy this video and are inspired to get in a bunch of reading in this new year. For those of you who are unaware, Goodreads, a reading app, has a reading challenge every year. It’ll track every book you read and help you stay on track with your reading goals. I always shoot for 50-60 books a year. It’s a great challenge, but not one to get too stressed about. One year I read around 70 books, last year I fell short and only read 40 or so books.
Here’s to many literary adventures and much learning in 2022!
In this short 3-minute (+) video, Black Friday’s origin is explained. You’ll be interested who came up with the idea. I hope you are as excited about the holiday season as I am. It’s a great time of year. In fact it is my favorite time of year. I get in a lot of reading, writing, and of course, video game playing in, during the winter months, because in Michigan, there is nothing else to do, simply because it is snowing outside and cold, and all the rest. Yes, there are many who ski, hunt, and do a lot of outdoor things. For me, my 20 years of service gave me all the outdoor living I’ll ever need to experience. Now it’s a cup of hot coffee, a good book, and looking at the snow, thanking God I do not have to live in that anymore.
Well, that’s it for today. I hope all of you have a great Tuesday!
