Habits To Quit

8 Habits You Need To Break Immediately


If you’re jonesing to give your life a major upgrade this year—and beyond—setting a few doable goals is the first step. That means nixing bad habits that may be sabotaging your progress in addition to promising to do more stuff that’s good for your health. Out with the old, in with the new, right? In that vein, here are 7 harmful habits you should break from.



1. Hanging Out With Naysayers

We all know these people — people who play devil’s advocate to every idea you have and every goal you want to pursue. We are already our greatest self-critics, so it doesn’t help when there’s someone beside us, ever ready to pounce on what we say and tear it down.
Hang out less with these naysayers and spend more time with supportive people who share constructive feedback instead. You will be much happier this way.


2. Stop Waiting For Your Situation To Change.

Being stuck in a rut can lead to a vicious cycle. You feel down, so you don’t do anything to change your situation, which makes you feel even worse. Once you get into this cycle, all the components of your life begin to weigh each other down.
If you’re feeling trapped, focus on just one thing you can work on today. Before you can run, you need to walk. Improve one small component of your life first.


3. Skipping Breakfast

When you’re in a rush to get out the door in the morning, eating breakfast might be your last priority. However, eating a healthy breakfast benefits your body in many ways – and a cup of coffee simply doesn’t cut it! Making time for a nutritious breakfast every morning will help keep your weight in check, prevent you from over-eating at lunch, improve your metabolism, and keep you energized and productive throughout the day.


4. Overspending And Exceeding Your Budget

Are you always broke. Feel like your bills keep growing and growing. Credit cards out of control? Does your debt feel like a mountain on your chest?
If any of those sound familiar you might have a spending problem, and either need to earn more or spend less. The steps to spending less are not that difficult, but few people take the time or effort to follow them.


5. Comparing Yourself With Others

There are endless reasons why we should stop wasting time comparing ourselves with others. The simplest is: it’ll never end. No matter how successful, how happy, or how intelligent we become, there will always be someone that will have or be more. It’s no better than a rabbit chasing after a carrot that can never be caught.


6. Being Late

Not only is being late being rude to others, it also means that you’re always rushing from one place to another, playing catch up in your agenda, and having to apologize to every person you meet. Stop being late and not being punctual, but practice being early instead. Target to arrive 15 minutes earlier before any appointment and bring along something to do in those 15 minutes (or longer if the other person turns out to be late). Then you can stop playing catch up and stay ahead in life.


7. Saying “Yes” To Everything

There’s no sense in being a “yes man.” Realistically, you can’t attend every meeting, volunteer for every extra shift, and take on every project – so, stop expecting.

Ways To Make Sex Last Longer

How To Last Longer In Bed
There are some things in life that, inevitably, don’t last a long time. But sex… should not be one of those things. Sure, there’s a time and place for a quickie, but for the most part, sex should be an experience that is enjoyed for as long as you and your partner want, preferably with no time limit.

It’s not exactly news that it takes men less time than women to reach orgasm. And once it happens, sex is often over. After ejaculation, men go through a refractory period where they are unable to achieve another erection for a certain length of time (women have little to no refractory period). It’s normal and it varies, but it does have a way of interrupting intercourse. The only way to defer it is to delay orgasm, which is why we’ve put together a list of tips for lasting longer in bed.

10 Tips To Satisfy Your Man In Bed

Insanely Tips To Please Your Man In Bed
You probably want to know how to please your man in bed. But guys aren't always so verbal about what they need.
The bedroom is one of the great stages of male performance, so what you see on TV is typically far from what can (and should) be delivered in reality. That's why sex experts chimed in with more accurate insight about what guys really want you to know when the two of you climb into bed. Here are the top sex tips for women.
1. Do It With the Lights On
You may be worried about what your husband thinks of your post-breast-feeding boobs, your C-section scar, or that at some point, he'll stop being attracted to you because you look a little — OK, a lot—different than you did on your wedding day. But men rarely notice your self-perceived flaws — they only become aware of them if you're preoccupied with them or go out of your way to cover up. "It's true, men are very visual," says relationship expertBernardo Mendez. &…

10 Things You Didn't Know About Donald Trump

10 Things You Didn't know About Donald Trump

Whether you love him or despise him, you just can’t ignore Donald Trump. “The Donald” has been a controversial public figure long before his recent bid for the presidency. The real estate mogul isn’t after the presidential perks or salary, in fact it’s costing him dough to chase the oval office, so why is he doing it? Some say he’s running for a higher purpose, to restore our country to glory. Others claim he is a megalomaniac with nothing currently better to do than rile up America.
To fully understand Trump, it’s important to dig deeper than the sound bites and information offered by talking heads on TV. One minute he sounds almost presidential, other times he seems a misogynist bully. Not too many voters really know what he’s about so it’s important to analyze the man behind the public image with some lesser known facts about Donald J. Trump.

Things you didn't know about Donald Trump:
1. He went to military school
At the age of 13, Tr…
