The Benefits of Puzzles

Puzzles are beneficial to everyone, no matter what age they are. For children, puzzles are a learning tool that increases their hand-eye coordination and cognitive skills.  For adults, puzzles keep the brain active thus decreasing the chances of Alzheimers and Dementia. Puzzles are also helpful when it comes to increasing a person's IQ as well as their overall mood. 



(Any kind of puzzle is good for you whether jigsaw, crossword, or word-search)

For your own health, try incorporating puzzles into your daily routine. Did I mention, puzzles are also great for decreasing anxiety and stress? 


I just completed the puzzle below in 2 minutes and 56 seconds. Solve it and leave your time in the comments below.  I want to see who can beat me! Also let me know if you enjoy solving puzzles. 

This is what the completed puzzle looks like.

How To AVOID Getting the Flu

Right now the flu is spreading faster than a hot knife through butter. And I don't know about you guys but I am NOT trying to get sick. 


Below are a few tips that can help you and your family avoid getting the flu this year. 




  • WASH YOUR HANDS WITH SOAP AND WARM WATER! (As often as possible, for at least 15 seconds)

  • Avoid touching your face or biting your nails (if you do that)

  • Carry hand sanitizer with you when out in public.  

  • Strengthen your immune system. You can do this by: 
                         -Getting enough hours of sleep (7-9 hours)
                         -Working out
                         -Eating healthy 
                   
                        

  • Avoid close contact with sick people. 

  • Sanitize your belongings such as cell phone, laptop, etc. (Your cell phone is dirtier/has more bacteria than the bottom of your shoes and a toilet seat!)

  • Get the infamous flu shot. It may not completely prevent someone from getting the flu but there is an increased chance that you won't get it. (over 30%)

My Most EMBARRASSING Moment EVER!


Today, I am going to share my most embarrassing moment. I tend to get embarrassed pretty easily, so this is just one of many embarrassing moments for me. 

I get embarrassed over the smallest things... and don't even get me started on second-hand embarrassment! If something embarrassing (or awkward) happens to someone else, I am embarrassed for them (whether they are embarrassed or not)!!! For me, second-hand embarrassment is TOO REAL!

So let me tell you about my most embarrassing moment. It all started when I was a newbie on campus. It was only my first week at Virginia State University. Literally, I think this situation happened either my first or second day there. I was looking SO FAB, because... come on! The first week at any school is your time to shine. You gotta pull out your best shoes, that new outfit you picked out, and have your hair laid and slayed....

"I love you," she whispered into her pink cell phone. Nothing but music and the rustle of paper returned what she thought was an open and honest expression. "Did you hear me?" she paused. "I said I love you."

January 2017 Workout Playlist

It's the start of a brand new year and I know everyone is on their health kick again, which means... more workouts!! There is nothing worse than working out to either "elevator" music or no music all. I remember in school, P.E teachers would make us workout with no music and it would be TORTURE. I didn't want to do anything! Having music during a workout is uplifting and motivating, especially when the beat is nice. 

When I workout, I listen to a little bit of everything; rap, hiphop, pop, EDM and trap (fast or slow). Today I'm sharing just a few songs that I listen to when I'm working out. These songs are PERFECT for exercises such as running or cycling.

(I like a lot of older songs if you couldn't tell.) 

What's your favorite workout song?
