Answers to Sleeping Problems – Mattress Comparisons

Sleep is an essential part of our body’s development and have been the best way to recuperate whenever we are weary. However, for some of us, it has been so hard to sleep. There are a lot of factors that can hinder us from sleeping, such as but not limited to noise, environment, stressful problems and so on. This is why we sometimes need to make our room a safe haven. But what really is the ideal sleeping environment? As everydayhealth said:

Sleeping in a cool, quiet, and dark room is ideal. You can use a ceiling or oscillating fan to create both a quiet and cool environment. The fan will move air in the room to keep you cool and it will also produce “white noise” to help mask the ambient sounds that may wake you up at night. A number of electronic gadgets are also available to produce white noise. You can use black out shades to eliminate early morning light. Turn off your cell phones at night so that any emails or texts you receive will not disturb your sleep. If you have pets that sleep in your bed or in your room at night, think about putting them out, especially if they seek attention.

Choosing your Mattress

Although it seems simple at first, picking the right quality of mattress can sometimes be hard. There are a lot of things to consider such as budget, your ideal sleeping position, firmness, and even your weight can be a factor for you to choose the right mattress. This article from sleepopolis has been very helpful for me to determine if it’s time to change your mattress depending on the factors stated above:

The type of mattress each person needs varies upon personal preference. With so many variations of mattress types, often times this can be the hardest choice to make. Not to worry, below I have broken down the most common mattress types to help make your research and selection a little easier.

Top Two Choices

As a child I have been dreaming of owning the best quality mattress that I can find. As I grew into an adult and finally had a place of my own, I went on to the nearest store to shop. However, it was to my surprise that there are a lot of competitors and I was not able to purchase one. I went back home to do a bit of research Based on my research about top quality mattresses, I’ve narrowed it down to two competitors, Leesa and Helix mattress. There are of course pros and cons about these mattresses and this website actually help me choose the one that I have right now: Helix vs Leesa Mattress

In the review from Mattress Battle. You will find that these two mattresses generally have great qualities. Personally though, I chose helix because I wanted to have a customized bed.

Dealing with Changes – Ketogenic Diet & Keto Flu

Ketogenic diet, a gem in the choices for weight loss. I actually learned from a friend that this type of diet helps you loose a lot of weight and fast. Ketogenic diet actually involves re-vamping your eating habits. A complete discontinuation on all carb intake, replacing it with a healthy mix of proteins, fat. and vegetables. Sounds yummy right? At first I thought of eating steak every day sounds good. However, as my mom often said when I was a kid, “anything taken in excess, is bad for you”. In this type of diet, you must create a balance.
 

Psychological Changes

In every new thing we experience, we need time to adjust. Diet is not an exception to this rule, there are physical are psychological effects to us. Before we talk about the physical changes let’s talk about psychological. Control of your mind is actually necessary in engaging this type of diet. Because, let’s face it, some “comfort foods” are addictive. A good article from cleaveland clinic talks about the Psychology of Eating:

What we eat affects how we feel. Food should make us feel good. It tastes great and nourishes our bodies. If you eat too little or eat too much, however, your health and quality of life could be affected. This can result in negative feelings toward food.

By learning how to make healthier and more mindful choices, you may be able to control compulsive eating, binging, and weight gain. By taking charge of your appetite, you may also gain a feeling of calm, high energy levels, and alertness from the foods you eat.


 

Physical Canges

Common challenges of being in a diet is actually maintaining it. After loosing those pounds, we tend to go back to our old ways. Here are some insights from active that explain common dieting problems involving physical changes:

After losing those pounds you suddenly feel that, overnight, your body has changed, making you a charter member of the exclusive “fast-metabolism-I-can-eat-whatever-I want” club. Then one morning you wake up and the reflection in the mirror reveals a truth that cannot be denied. You were never in the club. Not only have you regained the weight you lost, you’ve actually added more pounds. When this happens, you probably feel frustrated, ashamed, powerless, and you’re probably ready to throw up your hands in defeat.

 

The good part of this diet is that you loose your weight very quickly because of eliminating all the carbs intake. However, the bad thing is that there is something called the “Keto Flu”. Keto flu is a common reason for stopping progress on a ketogenic diet. People report mood swings, irritability, fatigue, dizziness and nausea among other symptoms. It is usually experienced within a few days after carb elimination and it may last anywhere from a day to a few weeks. I have found a very complete and informative website about Keto flu which may help you in this battle for a healthier body.

Getting Started with Affiliate Marketing

There are countless stories about Affiliate Marketing success in the web but I was often hesitant to believe them, I thought it was fiction, a hyperbole of some sort. I was told that there were a lot of people who banked $1000 for their first day and continue to do so for a couple of years. What I honestly felt back then is that it was too good to be true.

The Truth

People have different perceptions, experiences and beliefs and sometimes reading their stories are not enough for us to get convinced. This is why in my own time, I started to study Affiliate Marketing from the ground up. I learned that you can honestly consider Affiliate Marketing as a business and there really is a decent cash flow from it (if you do things right). However, same as any business it can rise or fall depending on your strategies and dedication. It is not a “get rich quickly” type of job, it probably is more of a “get rich from home”. Why? this is due to the fact that you have the capability to handle this type of business remotely. Now before we talk about affiliate marketing, lets talk about how to handle a business. In this article from entrepreneur you can learn some of the basics of being your own boss:

If you want to start a business but don’t know where to start, don’t worry–you are not alone. In fact, given the new economic reality of our time, more people than ever before have found the “job” they thought was waiting for them doesn’t exist. Others have come to the conclusion that they would rather create work they love, constructed to fit with their own life goals. No matter what the motivation is to be your own boss, you can start today.

Here’s a good videos on what NOT to do when starting a business.

Affiliate Marketing

Since we have a good understanding on how to start a business, let’s transition to how Affiliate Marketing works. As said earlier, affiliate marketing demands time, strategy, dedication, and hard+creative work. If you simply just enter affiliate marketing for the heck of it, there’s a high probability that you will not realize profit from it. To explain things further, you may review this article from empireflippers:

Affiliate marketing is one of the foundational business models that almost everyone who has made money online has some experience with. It can be incredibly lucrative, but provides its own set of benefits and flaws, as every business model does.

At its basic level, affiliate marketing is simply where you sign up with a company or a network (a network is just a company that houses many offers from different businesses) to sell their products or services. You get paid typically every time someone either buys something or executes the desired action.

There are actually a lot of ways on where to start with affiliate marketing, personally I prefer having a website for its  medium. Others, on the other hand are comfortable with social media, vlogs, email marketing, and a lot of other options.

Here are some bullet points that summarize Affiliate Marketing business:

  • Consider it as your own business
  • Provide time, dedication, hard+creative work
  • Identify your medium
  • Choosing the right affiliate partner
  • Choosing the right product to promote
  • Creating great content
  • Expanding your network
  • Realizing profit

From here on, there are a lot of things to consider, a lot of do’s and dont’s. Thankfully I found this website that can provide us with a one stop shop in terms of developing our affiliate marketing empire. This website actually talks about a product called Wealthy Affiliate. The good thing about the author is that he/she does not only highlight the pros of the product but also cons of it. There are a lot of positive reviews about how to help us reach our desired goals by using a variety of tools to use. This Wealthy Affiliate negative review is actually a very transparent and well written piece that may help us narrow down the weapons we need to have at our arsenal.

5 Best Comic Runs Of All Time

Comics books have existed for more than eighty years now, and they have given us countless characters and storylines that will be cherished for years to come.

Throughout the while that comic books have existed, artists have been keen on making modern myths that have now been turned into a unique and well-known art of storytelling.

Here are some of the best comic book runs of all time

Note that this list isn’t in any way ranked or ordered

1.     Preacher by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon

A comic book that was a critical and commercial hit, Preacher was published by Vertigo and was serialised for five years; from 1995 to 2000.

Preacher has dialogue and art that isn’t compromised, and unlike many comics that use sex and violence for pure shock value, this title uses these to create a world that makes the reader feel like it has been lived in.

2.     Amazing Spiderman by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko

One of the most popular characters in pop media today, Spiderman’s initial run called the Amazing Spiderman are now considered timeless.

Spiderman, as a character, grows from a crummy nobody to a hero in the story and this is all shown with an air of reality as his struggles are believable and very real; often we see the life of Peter Parker being entwined with the life of Spiderman.

The design of the web-slinger’s character is intentionally flawed so that readers were able to relate to his struggles.

3.     Sandman by Neil Gaiman

Published by Vertigo, Sandman features a mature fantasy that is written by Neil Gaiman and helps readers see a whole new side to the DC universe as it challenges everything that the series can be.

Sandman is often known as the best comic book that has ever been released by Vertigo as it has mythological legends blended into the story in order to make it unique. No two story is ever the same in the comic book.

DC has proven new grounds with Sandman as it explores concepts that have never been seen before in the comic book medium.

4.     Uncanny X-Men by Chris Claremont and John Byrne

Chris Claremont penned the Uncanny X-Men and pencilled by John Byrne. It features many characters that are seamlessly woven into the storyline.

The stories feature many arcs that cannot be compared with any other through complex character developments.

Uncanny X-Men features everything you can think of, and it is one run that you shouldn’t overlook.

5.     Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Eastman and Laird

Originally released as an independent title and it is hailed as one of the best independent titles ever to be released.

These comic books have laid the foundation for the mega-franchise that the TMNT is today, but the best stories can only be found in the comic books.

Best Writers of All Time

Comparing a writer with another writer is almost like comparing a dishwasher to a washing machine. They’re both different and serve a purpose that is unique to them. But one must attempt to examine what their works stood for in order to determine who was better and why.

He very much liked the forest and trees around him although he didn’t identify himself as a conservationist.

Fyodor Dostoevsky

Dostoevsky wrote many short stories, essays and novels throughout his life that explored the human psychology in its deepest. His stories often had a political, social and spiritual undertone. Some of his most significant works include Crime and Punishment, Demons, and The Brother Karamazov. He wasn’t afraid to challenge themes such as poverty and suicide as most of his works had a distorted and chaotic vision of contemporary Russia. Although initially, he wrote with realism in his mind due to his influences, he began writing in a more individualistic style. Critics all around the world today rate him as on the greatest psychologists to ever grace the literary world.

A central figure in the Romanticism movement, he was one of the earliest practitioners of short stories in the country. Edgar Allan Poe is also credited as a significant contributor to the science fiction genre when it was very young. He was also the first writer to live solely on his writings alone. Poe was fascinated by the concept of death and its signs.

Orwell was an advocate of using language that was clear and to the point. He argued that writing which wasn’t clear could be misinterpreted in ways that cannot be imagined.
