4 lil' Tricks That Make You Eat Less
If you want to lose weight but have absolutely no will power, here are four tricks that will make you eat less.
#1.) Turn on Relaxing Music. Soft music naturally relaxes you and lowers your stress level, which makes you chew slower than if you were listening to, say, death metal. And when you eat slower, you start feeling full faster.
#2.) Turn on More Lights. Dim lighting might create a more romantic atmosphere, but another reason restaurants keep the lights down is because it lowers your inhibitions and makes you eat more.
#3.) Light a Vanilla-Scented Candle. The scent of vanilla makes you less likely to want dessert. In fact, one group of volunteers lost an average of four-and-a-half pounds each by wearing vanilla-scented patches.
#4.) Paint Your Dining Room Blue. This is weird, but researchers have found that people eat 33% less if they're sitting in a blue room.
--It's because when light bounces off of the walls, it creates a blue tint, which makes the food look less appetizing.
--The colors red, orange, and yellow have the opposite effect, which is why so many fast-food places use those colors inside.

Dr. John Gottman founded the RRI, and he says they've identified the three signs a relationship has long-term potential, and the four signs it's in trouble.

#2.) You ask open-ended questions and ask for more info and details.

The four signs your relationship is doomed are:
#1.) Too much criticism.
#2.) You both find yourselves getting defensive all the time.
#3.) There seems to be a lot of contempt.
#4.) Instead of talking out problems, you stonewall each other and shut down communication.

Question: They estimate that 2.4 billion people around the world are expected to do this Month - what is it?
Answer: Watch (or listen) to the Royal Wedding!
BTW According to the "Astrology Detective" on YourTango.com, Prince William's wedding day is a bad one. Says the Detective: "On April 29, 2011, Kate and Williams's wedding day, nearly all of the planets are in disharmonious positions, which could mean a married life filled with challenges and misunderstandings. They would have been better off waiting a month or two to wed under more harmonious skies. In fact, if Princess Diana were around today she never would have allowed the couple to wed on April 29. Diana used astrologers, and any good astrologer would have told Waity Katey to waity a lil longer.
In honor of "National Crime Victims’ Rights Week - Reagan library is Screening of “Heaven’s Rain”"
Please join us for a private screening of “Heaven’s Rain,” the inspiring true story of Brooks Douglass, his sister Leslie, and their parents who were brutally attacked by two drifters in 1979. Mr. Douglass and his sister survived the attack, but their parents did not. The crime became a driving force for Mr. Douglass to become the youngest elected Oklahoma State Senator, and to champion legislation on behalf of crime victims.
The film will be screened at 7:00 p.m. and will be followed by a film discussion with Ventura County District Attorney Greg Totten and the film’s co-author and producer, Brooks Douglass.
This film has been rated R for due to brief flashbacks to a crime scene, which are handled delicately and respectfully, but are not appropriate for children.
This event is free and open to the public; however, reservations for seating are recommended. Click here.
