By know you should know that Tuesdays here on MC is just a little different because it’s all about keeping you in the know…and that means it’s Omniscient Tuesday on this 30th of September 2008…as a result I hope and trust that so far you’re morning has been completely fabulous or just plain fantastic… So have you ever found yourself just a little bored with nothing to do…especially with it being school holidays sometimes…you sit at home so bored even if you not on holiday…I’ve got some things that you can do on a only when you have absolutely nothing else to do…

1. Sort photographs


2. Sleep

3. Watch television

5. Clean!

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips on ways to empty your mind… Emptying your mind is very powerful when you have a problem. Now, learn how to!

1. Sit somewhere quiet. Total silence is not necessary – but music, television noise, or people talking will be distracting.

2. Sit comfortably. Sitting in a chair is fine. Sit reasonably upright, but do not strain to achieve any particular posture.

3. Wear loose, comfortable clothes. Loosen your belt if it is tight.

4. Close your eyes. Almost all the way, so that a little light enters but you cannot see anything clearly.

5. When thoughts come – let them come. When thoughts go – let them go. If you find yourself involved in a stream of thoughts, let go of your involvement with them. Keep letting go of involvement. Remain uninvolved. Just let go. Whatever happens – let it be as it is.

6. If you feel good – do not hold on to those positive thoughts. If you feel bad – do not reject those negative thoughts. Especially important: if you feel nothing in particular – do not drift into numbness and lack of presence.
Remain alert. You probably will feel refreshed and empty minded

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips on ways to do absolutely nothing…For those of us who are non-stop workaholics, doing nothing can actually be pretty difficult! If you're like the Energizer bunny in that you keep going, and going, and going, here's how to stop once in a while, think pleasant thoughts, visit the beach, stare at the water, and just do nothing...

1. Plan ahead. Whether it's an hour, a day, a week, a month, or year of doing nothing, cancel all of your appointments for that block of time. Try to pick the most boring week or day, a day where you'll most likely sleep most of the time.

2. Let people know. Tell everyone that you're going to be "busy" and will be unavailable. Whether you choose to tell them that you're actually setting aside some time to do nothing, or you just give them the vague explanation "I'm going to be busy" (busy doing nothing!), tell them not to call, visit, or interrupt unless it's a real emergency.

3. Find a quiet, private place. Go somewhere you don't feel pressured to do anything. This might be your bedroom, the backyard, or a local park. Find that place and go there.

4. Set your alarm. Set an alarm of some kind to go off when your "nothing" time is over, so that you don't have to constantly look at the clock and count the minutes.

5. Turn off the phone. Turn off your cell phone, work phone, pager, PDA, Blackberry, computer, Beeper, Radio, Tv, Iphone and any other means of sending or receiving calls or messages. These distractions will only keep you from enjoying the nothing.

6. Sit by yourself. Feel the wind, the sun on your face, the chair touching your bottom. Listen to the rustle of the trees, birds chirping, water flowing. Never think about the past or future. Avoid the temptation to turn on the TV, listen to music, write a note to yourself, get a bite to eat, or anything else. The only thing you should do is go to the bathroom (if needed).

7. Learn how to free your mind. Clear your mind of all thoughts of work, worries, family, etc. by simply letting them go. Doing this not only allows your body to do nothing, but your mind as well. However, do not be worried if you find yourself thinking of things.

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips…ways to not laugh at the most inappropriate times… Sometimes, you just can't help feeling the urge to laugh. If you allow yourself to laugh during serious moments, you may end up accidentally offending someone. While it might not be that easy to stifle a laugh, for most people it can be done! Remember you have the power…Here are some tips…

1. Understand when it is inappropriate to laugh. They say that "laughter is the best medicine," but if the occasion is very serious, others may not appreciate your laughter. If you go into a situation knowing that it's not laughable, it'll help you maintain a more serious demeanor.

2. Check to see if others are laughing, or at least smiling a lot. If they aren't, then remind yourself not to laugh unless they do.

3. Think of something very sad and depressing. If you need inspiration, the daily news is usually full of unfortunate events that will suffice to calm you down. Think about something that makes you want to cry. Although this can be unpleasant, it usually takes care of the uncontrollable urge to laugh.

4. Try pinching yourself or causing some other strong physical sensation, such as biting your inner cheek or your tongue (don't bite too hard!). Bite each side of your mouth together, so that the edge of your lips aren't rising up to make you smile or laugh. Hold your breath when you are about to laugh. This can act as a distraction, helping you beat the urge to laugh out loud.

5. Disguise a smile or laugh with a coughing fit. If a grin or chuckle slips through, quickly cover it up by putting your hand over your mouth and coughing. Move away from the crowd, even if it means stepping out of the room or going to the restrooms. If they see you are coughing, they will understand.

6. Try exhaling as much of the air as possible from your lungs. This removal of the air will not allow the laugh to continue and make it stop. This usually works best when combined with the coughing technique mentioned above. A combination of techniques is often the best!

7. If it gets really bad, hold your nose and cover your mouth with that hand. Then people can't see your grin, and you can laugh as hard as you wish inside yourself. You may start shaking, but that's OK, it can be covered as crying. Try not to let any sound out, but if you do ease up by accident it sounds much like a sneeze or a strange snort.

8. Pretend to pick your teeth. Open your mouth wide and pretend to pick away at something stuck. Not only does it totally hide your smile, you also clean your teeth at the same time! Be careful though because the face made is funny enough to make others start laughing when they see what you're up to.

9. Count backwards from 10 to 1. If this doesn't work, try again. Even forward counting can help.

I mean the next day which is today was work so it's hard to relax completely knowing that.....I don't know thats how I felt. Anyway getting back to today's show which was Community Buzz Thursday, keeping you in-tuned and in-touch with your community developments. Before we get to our interviews we had we also had the favourites being the Word of the day, S.A Trivia Question, did you knows, tips and ending off with the quote.

WORD OF THE DAY
Lothario- A womanizer

S.A TRIVIA QUESTION
What public holiday for the year 2008 is South Africa going to celebrate next(after yesterday that is).

A- Youth Day B- Nelson Mandela day or C- Day of Reconciliation
Ans: C- Day of Reconciliation


DID YOU KNOW:

Unless food is mixed with saliva you cannot taste it-----hows that! And....

An onion, apple and potato all have the same taste. The differences in flavour are caused by their smell.

TIP OF THE DAY:
How To Improve Your Memory

Convince yourself that you do have a good memory that will improve. Too many people get stuck here and convince themselves that their memory is bad, that they are just not good with names, that numbers just slip out of their minds for some reason. Erase those thoughts and vow to improve your memory. Commit yourself to the task and bask in your achievements -- it's hard to keep motivated if you beat yourself down every time you make a little bit of progress.

Keep your brain active. Regularly “exercising" the brain keeps it growing and spurs the development of new nerve connections that can help improve memory. By developing new mental skills—especially complex ones such as learning a new language or learning to play a new musical instrument—and challenging your brain with puzzles and games you can keep your brain active and improve its physiological functioning. Try some puzzle exercises everyday such as word cross, sudoku and some other games as easy to put into your mobile phone and practise it maybe once for 30 minutes per day.

Reduce stress. Chronic stress, although it does not physically damage the brain, can make remembering much more difficult. After prolonged stress the brain will be damaged. Even temporary stresses can make it more difficult to effectively focus on concepts and observe things. Try to relax, regularly practice yoga or other stretching exercises, and see a doctor if you have severe chronic stress.

Eat well and eat right. Feed your brain with such supplements as Thiamine, Vitamin E, Niacin and Vitamin B-6. Grazing, eating 5 or 6 small meals throughout the day instead of 3 large meals, also seems to improve mental functioning (including memory) by limiting dips in blood sugar, which may negatively affect the brain.

Take better pictures. One common situation where this occurs (and which almost everyone can relate to) is meeting new people. Often we don’t really learn people’s names at first because we aren’t really concentrating on remembering them. One way to train yourself to be more observant is to look at an unfamiliar photograph for a few seconds and then turn the photograph over and describe or write down as many details as you can about the photograph. Try closing your eyes and picturing the photo in your mind. Use a new photograph each time you try this exercise, and with regular practice you will find you’re able to remember more details with even shorter glimpses of the photos.

Organize your life. Keep items that you frequently need, such as keys and eyeglasses, in the same place every time. Use an electronic organizer or daily planner to keep track of appointments, due dates for bills, and other tasks. Keep phone numbers and addresses in an address book or enter them into your computer or cell phone. Improved organization can help free up your powers of concentration so that you can remember less routine things. Even if being organized doesn’t improve your memory, you’ll receive a lot of the same benefits (i.e. you won’t have to search for your keys anymore).

Sleep well. The amount of sleep we get affects the brain's ability to recall recently learned information. Getting a good night's sleep – a minimum of seven hours a night – may improve your short-term memory and long-term relational memory.


WE ALSO FEATURED:

An interview with Authur Sishuba form Bass Entertainment events management talking about the, MyCareerChoice Exhibition taking place the 9th - 10th October 2008 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

Tip of the Day:

None the less its time for your Tip of the Day and we talking about ways to do absolutely nothing… For those of us who are non-stop workaholics, doing nothing can actually be pretty difficult! If you're like the Energizer bunny in that you keep going, and going, and going, here's how to stop once in a while, think pleasant thoughts, visit the beach, stare at the water, and just do nothing.

1. Plan ahead. Whether it's an hour, a day, a week, a month, or year of doing nothing, cancel all of your appointments for that block of time. Try to pick the most boring week or day, a day where you'll most likely sleep most of the time.

2. Let people know. Tell everyone that you're going to be "busy" and will be unavailable.

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips on ways to have a healthy relationship… There are reliable tools that can be used to create a healthy relationship, many of which have not been taught in our culture. If you want to have a really healthy relationship, follow these simple guidelines...

1. Do not expect anyone to be responsible for your happiness. Accept yourself. Respect yourself. Love yourself first. Take good care of yourself. If you really want, you CAN always find something to do that makes you feel good about yourself right now.

2. Make and keep clear agreements. Respect the difference between yourself and your partner. Don't expect he or she agrees with you on everything. Reach mutual agreement or plan, and then commit to it.

3. Use communication to establish a common ground to understand different points of view and to create a mutual, collaborative agreement or plan. You can either choose to be right, or you can have a successful relationship.

4. Approach your relationship as a learning experience. Each one has important information for you to learn. For example, do you often feel 'bossed' around in your relationship, or do you feel powerless?

5. Tell the unarguable truth. Be truthful to yourself and your partner if you want true love. Many people are taught to lie to protect someone's feelings, either their own or those of their partner. Lies create disconnection between you and your relationship, even if your partner never finds out about it.

6. Do not do anything for your partner if it comes with an expectation of reciprocation. The things you do for your partner must always be done because you chose to do them and you wanted to do them. Do not hold your “good deeds” over their head at a later time. Keeping score in a relationship will never work: a person is less likely to notice and value all the contributions of their partner as much as their own.

7. Forgive one another. Forgiveness is a decision of letting go the past and focusing on the present. It's about taking control of your current situation.

8. Review your expectations. Try to be as clear as you can about any expectations - including acceptable and unacceptable behaviour and attitudes, especially attitudes towards money. Make sure you don't expect your partner to fulfil every need in your life.

9. Be Responsible. Here's a new definition: Responsible means that you have the ability to respond. Respond to the real problem, to your true needs. It does not mean you are to blame. There is tremendous power in claiming your creation.

10. Appreciate yourself and your partner. In the midst of an argument, it can be difficult to find something to appreciate. Start by generating appreciation in moments of non-stress, and that way when you need to be able to do it during a stressful conversation, it will be easier.

11. Admit your mistakes and say sorry. Right after a misunderstanding or argument, tell your partner to give you some time to think of the wrong and right things that you and he/she did.

Tip of the Day:
I’ve got your tips on ways to walk silently
Walking silently is an art that most people have not successfully developed. With practice, one can improve and master the art of stealth…

1. Get soft footwear. The harder your footwear, the louder the noise. The best type of footwear is socks or leather moccasins (tabi boots also work well). If you sweat too much in your socks, so that it makes noise, wear a double pair of socks.

2. Wear sparse, tight clothing. When walking, one's legs and clothes rub together creating noise. Minimizing your gear will prevent this.

3. Breathe quietly. Unless congested, take slow and measured breaths from the nose. If congested, open your mouth wide and take deep controlled breaths. Never hold your breath while walking or running, always breathe.

4. Be mindful of objects you are stepping on. Outside, try to walk on bare dirt or live grass. Dead foliage creates a perceptible "crunch" even when lightly stepped on. If you encounter an area where forced to walk through foliage, then pick the clearest path and proceed slowly, possibly bending over and removing obstructions from the location of the next step.

5. Match the cadence of the person you are following (i.e. when the person steps with his or her left foot, you use your left foot). This will help mask any noise your feet may make.

6. Place the heel of your foot down first and roll your foot slowly and gently towards your toes onto the ground. The hips can be rotated slightly to make this technique easier. Walk on the outer edge of your shoes if possible. For more balance and support, bend low at the knees. If moving swiftly, run/leap from location to location in this manner. Avoid landing flatfooted.

7. Be sure your footwear fits properly. If your foot slides at all in your footwear, it can produce a squeaking noise, especially if your feet are sweaty.

2. Look for new friends in different walks of life or different backgrounds. Their perspectives, philosophies, and ideas may be interesting topics of conversation.

3. Listen to the people you talk with, and if they have unique interests, learn more about them. If you are frequently with someone who loves sports, take time to learn some of the basics of their favorites. The same would go for fishing, needlepoint, opera, or any host of potential subjects.

4. Search for new perspectives in your own interests, and keep current on the leading edge of discoveries in those areas. When Pluto was declared a non-planet some months ago, you can be sure it was a hot topic in the astronomical community, but people on the streets were talking about it too.

5. Study the reaction of people you normally talk with when you try to bring up new topics. If you see drooping eyelids and hear yawns, you are not stimulating them, you are sedating them, but if eyebrows rise, and you see response, you are on the right track.

6. Remember, with exception to offensive language or culturally taboo subjects, there are limitless possibilities. Movies, music, fashion, business, sports, politics, celebrities, school, and current events, even... the weather, offer unlimited conversational subjects, if you take a little time to be interested in them.

7. Develop hobbies and look for clubs or organizations that support them. This will be a unique ground to learn and share ideas and thoughts as your knowledge grows.

I hope and trust that you are fabulous and fantastic on this Thursday morning…I don’t know what is up with me lately, but this past week have add this sort of strange feeling because it’s like for some reason Monday to me felt like Tuesday and Tuesday felt like a Wednesday and Wednesday was like a Thursday…I feel like I’m living in the future it so weird…now I don’t know if the weather has anything to do with it because generally I’m confused very easily…but I it depends on your week but I still think it flies… Just a reminder that today in fact is the 18th of September 2008…5 things to do on a Thursday so maybe, before the end of today’s show or even during the show because I’m sure you can multi task… you can try it out…so I have five things to do on a Thursday:

Buy someone else near you a cup of coffee or a soda pop or a beer, and ask them about their future plans.


* Believe in yourself. Close your eyes for a moment, and just BELIEVE that you
matter, that you’re something special. And that it so simple…

Moving onto today’s show we had all the usuals such as you’re Word of the Day, your SA Q&A, you’re Tip of the Day, Did you Knows Job Shop and Information Guide.

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips on ways to have presence…In some spiritual circles, presence and spirit are one in the same. Meditation, contemplation, dance, chant, all seek to connect with something deeper. Presence is the result of getting in contact with your deeper self…

1. You may lie on your back on the floor or otherwise place yourself in a comfortable position. Make sure that nothing will distract you (unplug your phone, close your door, ask people not to disturb you, etc.)

2. Close your eyes and pay attention to your breath. Allow your breath to fall in and out of you, unobstructed. Notice any place where your breath begins to catch. Allow your breath to touch that place until it opens and relaxes.

3. Be sure not to judge your observations. Allow yourself to be in the state you are in. Also know that your state is flexible and can change.

4. Move your attention to your facial muscles.

5. Concentrate on any tension in your face and take a deep breath in. Imagine that you are delivering all of the oxygen from your breath straight to the point on your face that is tense.

6. Continue until your entire face and neck are relaxed. You should feel your sinuses open up and your circulation become better (your may feel more warmth or tingling in your skin). Your expression may feel very different. Do not judge yourself, just notice what you notice.

7. Take the time to do this throughout your entire body. Allow each point of tension to be filled with your breath. Allow these places to open and relax. Pay close attention to the state of your body as this tells you a lot about how you move through the world.

8. After you are done, go over to a mirror and look at yourself. You may be shocked because you look a little different. Do not do anything, just observe how you have changed.

9. After the mirror, try talking to someone you know. They may comment that you look a little different. Your voice may sound different as well. You may seem more confident, more calm. Don't let this disturb you. If you feel the tension creeping back, take a deep, silent breath and release the tension again.

10. While you are talking to your friend or family member, allow yourself to be expressive with your face as well as your body, but don't get stuck in an expression.

11. After you have mastered talking to people close to you, maintain your presence when walking around school, work, or outside. People may comment that you look a little different. Do not be discouraged.

12. When you walk down the street, try to make eye contact with strangers. Don't force yourself to react in a particular way, just allow an expression to move through your body. Check in afterwards, did your smile stick? Did the tension return to your face or body? Practice this until you remain relaxed when you greet strangers.

13. In all situations, it is important to maintain your presence. If you have anxiety or fear, acknowledge it and allow yourself to move through it. Turn your focus to your breath and breathe out any tension.

Men loose about 40 hairs a day. Women loose about 70 hairs a day…Here’s another interesting fact… If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee

Tip of the Day:

None the less we are talking about ways to be funny without telling jokes… Here's how to find humor in not-so-funny stuff. Before long, you'll have people laughing a lot at your presentation without telling jokes. Below are some ways to get people to laugh.So here are those set of tips…

1. Set the scene for laughter. If you want to lighten up your program, you might want to let the audience know this, even before you say one word. Project some lighthearted visuals as the audience is entering the room.

2. Poke fun at yourself. Again, even before you open your mouth, you can show the audience that you don't take yourself too seriously by adding some playful things about you in your introduction. For example, have the introducer tell the audience that you are the author of seven books which have sold well over 30 copies.

3. Get some laughs with a prop. It has been said that learning is enhanced with visual aids. If this is true, then speakers need to enhance their talks with something to visually illustrate what they are saying. A prop is a great way to do this because it not only makes your message memorable but it can also get a laugh.

4. Tell your humorous stories. Open your humor eyes and ears and look and listen for the funny things that happen all around you. Families are an especially good resource for finding humorous stories.

5. Borrow some witty words. While waiting for your own humor-related stories to appear, you might want to borrow some funny short quotes from famous people to lighten up your talks.

6. Collect audience anecdotes. Sometimes audiences say the funniest things. When they do, write it down. It could be a big laugh in your next presentation.

7. Remember the bottom line. For non-humorists, some of the ideas presented here may seem too frivolous for your subject matter. Nevertheless, you are still encouraged to seek some way of upping the entertainment value of your talks because it might also increase what you can charge.

8. Make it relevant. One final word about using humor in your presentations--make sure it is relevant. Amusing an audience for the sake of getting a laugh might be ideal for a stand-up comedian or an after-dinner humorist but it's probably not good for most speakers. If your humor doesn't make a point or have a purpose, don't use it.

9. Fake stories Usually real comedians use fake stories to make a cheap laugh.

Did You Knows:

Your mouth produces 1 liter of saliva a day… Here another fascinating fact for your FYI… On average, people can hold their breath for about one minute

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips on ways to walk silently… Walking silently is an art that most people have not successfully developed. With practice, one can improve and master the art of stealth…

1. Get soft footwear. The harder your footwear, the louder the noise. The best type of footwear is socks or leather moccasins (tabi boots also work well). If you sweat too much in your socks, so that it makes noise, wear a double pair of socks.

2. Wear sparse, tight clothing. When walking, one's legs and clothes rub together creating noise. Minimizing your gear will prevent this.

3. Breathe quietly. Unless congested, take slow and measured breaths from the nose. If congested, open your mouth wide and take deep controlled breaths. Never hold your breath while walking or running, always breathe.

4. Be mindful of objects you are stepping on. Outside, try to walk on bare dirt or live grass. Dead foliage creates a perceptible "crunch" even when lightly stepped on. If you encounter an area where forced to walk through foliage, then pick the clearest path and proceed slowly, possibly bending over and removing obstructions from the location of the next step.

5. Match the cadence of the person you are following (i.e. when the person steps with his or her left foot, you use your left foot). This will help mask any noise your feet may make.

6. Place the heel of your foot down first and roll your foot slowly and gently towards your toes onto the ground. The hips can be rotated slightly to make this technique easier. Walk on the outer edge of your shoes if possible. For more balance and support, bend low at the knees.

7. Be sure your footwear fits properly. If your foot slides at all in your footwear, it can produce a squeaking noise, especially if your feet are sweaty.

Did You Knows:

Babies are born without knee caps. They don't appear until the child reaches 2-6 years of age…another interesting one… Like fingerprints, everyone's tongue print is different.

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips on ways to be loveable…So here are those tips… Have you always wanted to be that one person who everyone seems to like and admire?...Then maybe these tips will help…

1. Be bright and cheerful as much as you can, without being annoying. No-one wants to be that person who never has a bad day and is always hyper. That person is annoying. Everyone has a bad day sometimes, and it should be admitted without being too melodramatic.

2. Remember that everyone has something to offer. That geek in the corner on his laptop could be your boss one day. Talk to everyone, because everyone deserves the right to a good life and friends. Everyone. Plus, talking to people that other people don't talk to makes you look confident and a nice person.

3. Listen in your lessons, and encourage your teachers to trust you. Hand in your homework on time, listen in class, don't talk too much in lessons and don't pass notes. This means that if on a bad day you don't have your homework, or have to leave early for example, teachers are more likely to believe and trust you.

4. Make sure you have clothes that clearly reflect who you are, and what you want to wear. Being fashionable is no good if you don't like what you're wearing, and just because it's fashionable it doesn't mean it suits everyone. If you wear a uniform for school, then add accessories to it, for example badges on your tie, or a nice necklace or wristband. This shows individuality, which is a very lovable quality.

5. Lovable people are those who have confidence in themselves and their beliefs. Don't change yourself to be more likable, because people will see right through you, and being something you're not won't make you happy.

6. Make sure that whatever you're doing is something you enjoy.

7. If you want to meet other people, try joining an after school/out of school club/activity. By doing something you enjoy, you'll meet other people who enjoy the same things and you have things in common with.

8. Smile! Just don't be cheesy. You want people to think you're friendly, not annoying.

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips… ways to sleep comfortably on a hot summer’s night… When it's very hot out and you do not have air conditioning, it's difficult to fall asleep. You can toss and turn to no avail. All this movement will make you even hotter than you already are, but there are ways to get cool and remain cool long enough for you to fall asleep…here are some tips…

Get a fan and place it near your bed. Then take some clothes pins and pin your sheet around all edges of the fan. Make sure that the rest of the sheet is tucked in around the bed and under your head/pillow. Its like sleeping in a air conditioned bubble. Works great!

Keep a blue ice block nearby. Every now and then touch it with the palm of your hand and touch your body with your cold hands!

Keep a glass of ice cold water close to your bed. So that in the event that you wake up hot and uncomfortable, you can easily cool off again without having to get up.

The type of material that you sleep in and on will affect how hot you get. Porous materials breathe better and will help you to avoid getting sticky. A light cotton shirt and light cotton shorts work well.

Keep the door to your bedroom open, so that there is proper air circulation from other rooms. Keep in mind that this may not improve your condition if your house, apartment, etc. is the same temperature or hotter than your bedroom.

Partially fill a plastic bottle with water and freeze it. Put it in front of a fan; it'll give the same effect, but is less likely to spill.

Sleep with your feet out from under the sheets. Body heat will escape via your feet
Try sleeping on your side to help keep your body cooler.

A: The Knysna-Tsitsikamma

Did You Knows:

On average, people move house every 7 years…I didn’t know that…And listen closely to this one…Earth is not round; it is slightly pear-shaped

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips on ways to wake up out of bed immediately… Tired of getting late to work? Do you usually wake up and think "why can't I stay just 5 more minutes in bed?" and 5 minutes later you think the same thing, and this repeats itself over and over until lunchtime and you realized that you have missed your work? Do you feel like your legs don't obey to your orders? Do you see yourself as a lazy every morning?So where is the answer for your prayers, the ending of your daily suffering and morning fears?

1. Shut down your mind. Your mind is your worse enemy, block all your thoughts. Any single thought will origin another one. i.e. "I need to get up because I need to go to work" but then you will think "but I’m so tired...resting more 5 minutes will not cause the end of the world". So don't think anything! If you're having difficulties doing this, try thinking of emptiness. (If your idea of emptiness is a "dark screen" don't think it, think white instead or think in transparency.

2. Practice. The human mind works by learning and learning requires practice, and practice is based on repeating an action over and over. Keep getting out of bed.

3. Simulate. Turn off the light, shutdown your computer or TV or whatever (or turn it on...in case you usually sleep with your computer turned on) Put everything like the way it is when you're going to sleep, dress yourself like you do when you're going to sleep, wear your pajama or put yourself in underwear...you should be exactly dressed the way you dress to sleep.

4. Set your alarm clock for a few minutes later. Close your eyes like if you're going to sleep and try to fall asleep...it may be difficult. So don't try too hard, you don't need really to sleep, that's optional. When your alarm clock goes on, get up from the bed, It will be easy because you aren't tired. Try not to get up to fast but not too slow.

5. Stretch yourself. Stretch like you do when you get up on your normal "getting up routine" or don't if you do not usually stretch. Just do what you usually do right away after getting up. (no, you don't need to go to the bathroom, do the breakfast etc! don't even leave your room).

6. Return to bed and to it again. Do this a few times at the different hours of the day, do 2-3 sets at each session. And do 2-4 sessions a day. Feel free to raise the number of sets per session and the number of sessions per day with the time (like if you doing a exercise. Like you do at the gym or at home or even if you don't exercise I'm sure you know what I'm talking about)

A: The Kenilworth Race Course

Did You Knows:

Leonardo Da Vinci invented the scissors…Here’s another interesting fact… The Tugela Falls is the second highest waterfall in the world, where the water tumbles down 850 metres.

Tip of the Day:

Your mind is racing and you can't seem to get it to stop, but you don't want to become addicted to those sleeping pills they are always talking about, so how do you cope? Not being able to fall asleep is a problem that we all face from time to time. There are several ways to improve the quality of your sleep, but what good are they if you can't even fall asleep? Here are some steps you can take to ease the transition from wakefulness to slumber…

Try looking upward gently while your eyes are closed (like trying to look at your forehead with your eyes closed.) This makes your mind think that you are sleeping- making you fall asleep faster.

Try to visualize in great detail your crush. His/her smile, clothing, them talking to you, anything.

If you are constantly telling yourself you need to go to bed, you will get no where.

If your mind races with thoughts, keep a notebook or journal by the bed and write them down so you can rest your mind and not worry about forgetting that thought.

If you are very active your body may be restless at night. Massage your leg and arm muscles.
Find something that makes a very quiet, steady sound. A small fan on low setting or a real, non-electric, ticking watch.


For some the sound will induce stress and make sleep harder, but for some, the steady beat of the ticking (because a watch has many smaller ticks inside of the tick-tock-tick-tock), or the quiet hum that the electric motor in the fan makes can be very peaceful.

As much as you can, try to stay in bed with your eyes closed, even if you are not actually sleeping. You will drift in-and-out of sleep even if you do not realize it. As a result, you will be more relaxed in the long run.

If you find you are still wide-awake after a half-hour or so, try getting out of bed and doing something relaxing in another room. Just sitting in a comfortable chair with the lights off, or looking out the window for a few minutes, can help you relax and make it easier to fall asleep.

Word of the Day:

JIBE - an insulting or mocking remark

Trivial Question:

Q: Name the highest mountain range in South Africa?
A: Drankensberg

Did You Knows:

A cat has four rows of whiskers. Here another fascinating fact for your FYI Babies are born without knee caps. They don't appear until the child reaches 2- 6 years of age

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips on Have you always wanted to be that one person who everyone seems to like and admire? The one who teachers trust and respect, and yet isn't seen as a geek? Read on to find out how it is possible…

1. Be bright and cheerful as much as you can, without being annoying. No-one wants to be that person who never has a bad day and is always hyper. That person is annoying. Everyone has a bad day sometimes, and it should be admitted without being too melodramatic.

2. Remember that everyone has something to offer. That geek in the corner on his laptop could be your boss one day. Talk to everyone, because everyone deserves the right to a good life and friends. Everyone. Plus, talking to people that other people don't talk to makes you look confident and a nice person.

3. Listen in your lessons, and encourage your teachers to trust you. Hand in your homework on time, listen in class, don't talk too much in lessons and don't pass notes. This means that if on a bad day you don't have your homework, or have to leave early for example, teachers are more likely to believe and trust you.

4. Make sure you have clothes that clearly reflect who you are, and what you want to wear. Being fashionable is no good if you don't like what you're wearing, and just because it's fashionable it doesn't mean it suits everyone. If you wear a uniform for school, then add accessories to it, for example badges on your tie, or a nice necklace or wristband. This shows individuality, which is a very lovable quality.

5. Lovable people are those who have confidence in themselves and their beliefs. Don't change yourself to be more likable, because people will see right through you, and being something you're not won't make you happy.

6. Make sure that whatever you're doing is something you enjoy.

7. If you want to meet other people, try joining an after school/out of school club/activity. By doing something you enjoy, you'll meet other people who enjoy the same things and you have things in common with.

8. Smile! Just don't be cheesy. You want people to think you're friendly, not annoying.

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips on welcoming in a new month now this is a short activity that allows you to appreciate the passing of time…So here are those tips...

1. Wait until the last five or ten minutes of the last day of the current month to begin. Please note that the day is slightly different each month.

2. Dress in the proper attire to go outside. If it is raining, wear a raincoat and/or carry an umbrella. If the month you are welcoming is in winter, wear a warm jacket. It is important to stay comfortable, so you can appreciate the moment.

3. Walk outside.

4. Take some deep breaths. Take note of the temperature, cloud cover, and weather. Notice what you are wearing and how you are feeling. Are the trees budding or are the leaves beginning to fall? Is it seasonably warm or cold? What do you smell? Can you see the stars?

5. Remember back on the last time you welcomed in a month. How has the weather changed?

6. Think of what this new month will bring and remember back on the good times of the leaving month.

7. Go back inside, feeling quiet and calm.

8. Repeat all steps for the coming months.
