You might be surprised to hear that most people in school and college are working too hard. Even people studying at home are usually working much harder than they need to. But guess what . . .
What most people don’t realize is that studying and learning should never be too difficult. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you what it’s like. You know the feeling: you go to class, get a ton of homework, then spend hours and hours reading over your notes, trying to memorize everything in a mad panic before your next exam.
Not only is this stressful, but studying this way is both time consuming and a huge waste of energy. But the good news is, studying doesn’t have to be this difficult.
In fact, if done correctly studying and learning should be a pleasurable experience. It shouldn’t be hard and it should probably take you less than half the time you’re already spending. So how is all this possible?
I’d like to introduce you to a former student of mine, Luke. Luke came to me in his final year of high school. I had just started running The Study Method course and Luke was one of my very first students.
However, when I first met Luke things weren’t going well for him at all. He had big, dark circles under his eyes. His face was covered in red sores and pimples. Not only did he look tired, but he was mentally fatigued as well.
You see, Luke, like so many other students, was suffering from extreme study stress. Not only that, Luke was desperate to get into college, but his grades were terrible, and college right now wasn’t even an option.
Luke found the workload at school to be so heavy and the course content so difficult, that he was in serious danger of failing school altogether.

Creativity is Key When Dealing with Toddlers Who are Picky Eaters
Getting Toddlers and Children to Eat a Meal Can Be a Challenge. Here’s How to Attack the Problem
By Chris Thompson
It’s not news that toddlers can be picky, fussy, finicky eaters. The fact of the matter is—it is normal for them to be so.
But before you throw your arms up in the air the next time you encounter such resistance to your efforts to feed your child, you might want to know there are ways to get around this problem.
Physiology (no, not “psychology”) Drives Hunger
The first and the most obvious available to you is human physiology. Our bodies need sustenance; and try as we might not to eat, our bodies will always cause us to become hungry. This law of physiology also applies to your toddler.
However, starving a child to the point that it will eat anything you give it would indeed seem a bit too cruel. It is understandably not a good method for parents to resort to, no matter how desperate they may become to get their child to eat.
What parents need to be when faced with a fussy toddler who refuses to eat or chooses to eat only a certain kind of food is not to become desperate. Instead, they must become creative.
Combine this with Creativity to Solve the Problem
Creativity is the key. And what’s surprising about it is parents don’t have to be told that. They already know this is the way to make children eat.
All parents need therefore, are just tips or ideas on the various creative ways to get their adorable little fussy eaters to want to eat. Below are creative ways to apply next chow time:
Make Use of Colors
Children are wonderful creatures who are still discovering the world around them through their senses. And one sense they make use a lot of is their sense of sight.
This gem of an information means children like to look at shapes and colors. And parents should take advantage of this.
Come next meal time, prepare food that incorporates green, yellow and red colors. Children respond to colors, especially the bright cheerful ones. This will make their meal time very pleasing to them.
Sample foods to use, which are loaded with the proper nutrients needed by the child, are vegetables like carrots and broccoli, and cheese sticks for calcium. The choices are limitless, actually. Let your creativity reign here.
Set the Mood with Colors
If you can use color to make your toddler’s eating experience fun, you can also use it to set up his mood to eat.
Using colors to make people want to eat is the secret of fast food restaurants. Red and orange stimulate hunger, and that is why fast food companies make use of them heavily as colors for their tables or chairs, and display boards, and packages.
But while you’re at it, please avoid the color blue. Blue suppresses hunger.
Have several cookie cutters of various shapes around. Cut fun shapes out of boring vegetables and other foods. It will make your toddler enjoy meal time very much.
Involve the Child in Food Preparation
Take your child to the grocery and let him help you pick the ingredients for his next meal. This fun activity should also continue at home where you make him assist you in the food preparation.
Even if you just let your child observe, seeing how you transform the food he helped you pick out into his meal would add some excitement to eating experience.
And there you go. Making meal time fun time for your toddler is really up to your imagination. The possibilities for fun meals are limitless.
Now go have a healthy happy meal with your child

Do you believe in "Happily ever after" or "Until Death Do Us
From the time we are little girls, women are taught to believe in
the fairy tale union of a man and a woman who love each other.
Many women never let go of the fantasy, and when they find the
man they want to marry, the end caption on their lives seems like
it will be, "And they lived happily ever after." Unfortunately,
statistics show that at least 50% of all marriages end in
divorce. Some women are left without important job skills and
barely enough money to support themselves, much less several
I find it interesting that women plan for earthquakes and floods,
fire and medical emergencies, spending thousands of dollars to
insure themselves against catastrophic events that have low odds
of ever occurring, yet they fail to plan for the highly possible
event of divorce. Of course, no woman wants to think that her
marriage will be the one out of two that ends in divorce, but
when the signs begin to present themselves, planning for divorce
is as important as trying to save the marriage. Your future
depends on it. Let me ask you...
Do you know the answers to these questions?
1. How much does your husband make?
2. What does his retirement plan offer?
3. How much does he have in savings?
4. What are his investments?
5. Where are his investments?
5. What does the family owe on mortgage, business debt and credit
These are just some of the questions you need to find answers to.
Most importantly, you need to know these answers BEFORE you
announce your decision to divorce.
This information is essential to getting what you deserve in the
settlement, so don’t leave home without it.
So when it comes down to making the final decision to divorce,
quell any urge to scream "This marriage is over!" pack your bags
and slam the door on your way out. The final decision to
leave takes time, and to announce your decision also
takes time and preparation. With the right planning and
preparation, you can save money to pay the lawyer, fund your
living expenses, and give yourself a positive financial future.
