Stress, unfortunately, is part of our everyday lives. Sometimes it’s just the little daily aggravations such as traffic jams that cause us to be late, and other times it is more serious occurrences like the loss of a job or medical problems that put us under extreme pressure. But have you noticed that some people seem to fall apart over the slightest stressful event, while others are literally the definition of “grace under pressure”? Well, it turns out there may be some reasons.
Stress is part of our lives, and we deal with it just about every day. There’s no escaping stress, whether your issues are due to relationship problems, health problems, financial worries, job-related difficulties, or something else entirely. Instead, we need to learn to manage it so we do not end up eating for stress relief or letting it take a long-term toll on our health. And the good news is that recent research suggests there’s a natural way to combat stress that also improves our blood sugar levels: mindfulness practice.
Talking to yourself in the third person can help you keep your emotions in check, based on new research that aims to find simple and effective ways to reduce the impact of stress and other negative feelings.

Anyone who follows my writings knows that I have a problem with schools. I consider schools, and the current education system, to be no more than child abuse. I’ve said it often: we lock up kids for some of the best years of their lives, prisoners to some of the most dysfunctional weirdos in our society (teachers), and pump them full the absurd nonsense which clearly does NOT work (just look at the world around you and tell me all is cool!)

People have been taking aspirin for many decades now. Daily use of aspirin is not only ineffective, but it’s dangerous. It leads to a plethora of other problems and gastrointestinal issues while doubling the risk of strokes without reducing fatal heart attacks.
