Happier People Start Christmas Decorations Earlier According To Science

Christmas decoration ideas

Decorations are simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement. So putting up those Christmas decorations early extend the excitement!

Not to get too heavy about this wonderful time of year, but we asked a few experts of the mind what the psychological reasoning is behind decking your hall with boughs of holly.
Psychologist Steve McKeown recently claimed that people who decorate for Christmas earlier are often happier. “In a world full of stress and anxiety people like to associate to things that make them happy and Christmas decorations evoke those strong feelings of the childhood,” he says.
McKeown says that Christmas decorations typically evoke feelings of nostalgia and excitement, therefore, those people are apt to put up their Christmas decorations earlier. According to research, those who are itching to put up the Christmas tree could also be trying to advance their socialization and closeness in relationships.


A study from the Journal of Environmental Psychology revealed that there is a connection between decorating for Christmas and being more open to socialization with neighbors, family, and friends. It initiates a need for closeness and spending more time together. And, as all of us adults know now, Christmas sure does help implement a little bit of the old Christmastime magic we knew as kids and, maybe subconsciously, long for still.

The Scrooges of the world are no match for those who light up at the sight of a newly lit Christmas tree or seeing houses down the street all lit up with colored lights. Turns out these seemingly unhappy ‘Scrooges’ who want to vomit at the sight of a candle in the window might actually be that unhappy. They might need a little extra Christmas spirit help from those nostalgic Christmas early birds.

Psychotherapist Amy Morin also weighed in on McKeown’s insight with a bit more detail. She says, “The holiday season stirs up a sense of nostalgia. Nostalgia helps link people to their personal past and it helps people understand their identity,” she says, “Perhaps the holidays serve as a reminder of when a loved one was still alive. Or maybe looking at a Christmas tree reminds someone of what life was like when they still believed in Santa. For people who have lost a loved one, the holidays may serve as a reminder of happy times they had with that person in the past. Decorating early may help them feel more connected with that individual.”

WHEN TO DECORATE FOR CHRISTMAS

There’s no hard and fast rule about when you should put up your Christmas tree, but traditionally we’ve not done it until a bit closer to the big day itself.

A lot of people choose to put up the Christmas tree 12 days before Christmas day, on the 13th of December but if you’re Catholic you might not put the tree up until after noon on Christmas eve. It is also common in some communities to put up the Christmas tree on December 6 in honour of Saint Nicholas.

Here are some Places where you can buy Online your Christmas Tree

Here are my picks for Christmas tree dealers selling fresh trees online. A Christmas tree bought online can cost more but will save you valuable holiday time, is usually a fresher tree and can help you avoid crowded lots. It is especially handy to gift order for someone who can’t get out.

Any opportunity and the bunting comes out and stays up for weeks until you can’t remember why you put it there in the first place.

The Best Safe Sunscreen For This Summer

Thinksport SPF 50+ Sunscreen

Here is the Sunscreen that has the ingredients scientists recommend in a reef-safe sunscreen, costs half as much per ounce as some of the competition, and feels nice on skin.

  1. Thinksport SPF 50+ Sunscreen

The best reef-friendly sunscreen

This sunscreen uses ingredients that are thought to be safest for reefs. It costs less than the competition, plus it rubs in easily and feels nice on skin.

Thinksport SPF 50+ Sunscreen

The main ingredient in Thinksport SPF 50+ Sunscreen is non-nano zinc, the most coral-friendly option available in the US, according to experts. Zinc sunscreen might conjure images of lifeguards with white noses, but this one rubs in clear, with minimal effort. Once on skin, it feels less greasy than many sunscreens, and like most mineral sunscreens—which block UV rays with zinc and titanium—it smells like almost nothing. Like the other reef-friendly sunscreens we considered, Thinksport is a lotion, which means that it’s hard to accidentally get excess sunscreen on the sand where it will wash into the ocean, a concern when using sprays. This sunscreen costs $2.80 per ounce; though that’s double the price of our top pick for regular sunscreen, it’s about half the price of the other reef-friendly sunscreens we considered.

10 Food Ingredient That steadily adding fat to your body

FATT DECIMATOR

The secret ingredient found in most foods that’s steadily adding fat to your body

Do you remember the big stink in the U.S. a few years back surrounding McDonald’s and their food,
most notably French fries? It was the big trans-fat scare! That’s right, we were being poisoned by the
evil clown with deadly fat and something had to be done!

Yeah, because we’re not adults or anything…

So the government stepped in and the burger giant was forced to change their frying oil. On the surface
of it, it’s nice of good old Uncle Sam to take care of us right? To watch out for we, the ignorant masses,
and make sure that when we’re shoving super-sized fries into our feed holes that they’re not entirely
unhealthy!

Okay… but do you know that despite the choice you make to visit Mickey Dee’s, there is in fact
something found in virtually every can, box or bag of food in the grocery aisle that’s incredibly addictive,
almost immediately turns to fat when you eat it and is one of the leading causes of most of the ailments
we suffer today?

So what is this killer, which is not only ignored by the government but actually supported by it?

DISCOVER HERE

That’s right, processed sugar in its many forms is one of the most used ingredients in all processed and
packaged foods. That includes regular white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, maltodextrin and a host of
others.

Want proof? Try this experiment the next time you go shopping. Walk down the aisles and examine the
stuff you normally buy. Including stuff you wouldn’t even think they’d put sugar in – soup, salad
dressing, instant potatoes, juice, frozen foods and even baby foods…

Now, if you read the list of ingredients you’ll find some of the sugars I mentioned above. Keep in mind
that this list of ingredients is organized from the highest concentration to the lowest. So if some kind of
sugar is listed in the first three ingredients – and it’s often #1 or #2 – then you’re eating a whole lot of it.
Sugar is a killer and, while okay in small quantities, is extremely unhealthy, fattening and addictive.
That’s right – thousands of independent clinical studies have shown that sugar is more addictive than
cocaine and even heroine…

…and it’s in virtually everything we eat!

So is it any wonder why you might find it hard to drop the poundage?

Here’s something else to ponder before we say goodbye. There’s actually a list of vegetables that are
routinely served in restaurants and found in the produce section of the grocery store that are generally
thought to be healthy… but are actually very bad for you and inhibit your ability to drop weight!
Health, fitness and weight loss are complex issues and we’ve been fed a lot of myths over the years.
That’s why I’ve made it my goal in life to share the truth about foods, exercise and weight loss that we
westerners have been denied for so long!

If you’re looking to lose weight, have ever struggled with your weight or are just sick and tired of paying
for the next big fitness craze, diet or gizmo that never seems to work, then I’d like to invite you to learn
more about the foods you eat and the way your body works.

Click this link now and watch my presentation where I’ll reveal some of the biggest weight loss myths
and prove to you through hard science why they don’t work and how we’ve all been bilked for billions!

The Best Wireless Charger for iPhone and Android Phones

The Best Wireless Charger for iPhone and Android Phones

The best wireless charger for most people who have a phone that supports the Qi wireless-charging standard.

Although this Samsung model is not the absolute fastest wireless charger we tested, and it doesn’t support 7.5-watt charging. For iPhones running iOS 11.2 or later, more expensive chargers proved only slightly faster with both iPhones and Android devices.

Wireless charging is sure to become more popular, and we’ll see many more charging options now that Apple is including Qi technology in its phones, but this Samsung charger is a solid bet no matter your smartphone platform.

Samsung Wireless Charging Pad EP-PG920 – The best Qi charging pad

 

Samsung Wireless Charging Pad EP-PG920

Not only does the Samsung Wireless Charging Pad EP-PG920 power up phones at a fast rate, but it also looks nice while doing so, and it comes in black or white, so you can match it with the rest of your accessories. A rubber ring on the top allows it to hold even glass-backed phones in place better than some other Qi chargers, ensuring that your handset stays properly aligned for charging. And it comes with its own AC adapter and USB cable in the box, so you don’t need to worry about supplying (or buying) your own.

Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand EP-NG930 – A good viewing angle

Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand EP-NG930

After more than 420 hours of testing, we think Samsung’s Wireless Charging Pad EP-PG920 is the best Qi wireless charger for most people who have a phone that supports the Qi wireless-charging standard (which includes the latest iPhones and many Android phones). Although this Samsung model is not the absolute fastest wireless charger we tested, and it doesn’t support 7.5-watt charging for iPhones running iOS 11.2 or later, more expensive chargers proved only slightly faster with both iPhones and Android devices, so we don’t think you need to spend more. Wireless charging is sure to become more popular, and we’ll see many more charging options now that Apple is including Qi technology in its phones, but this Samsung charger is a solid bet no matter your smartphone platform.

Charges as fast as our top pick, but you have to provide your own power adapter.

Anker PowerPort Wireless 5 Stand – An inexpensive Qi charging stand

The same great charging experience, in stand form.

If our picks are out of stock, if you want to spend a little less, or if you prefer something with a less obvious status light, Anker’s PowerPort Wireless 5 Padand PowerPort Wireless 5 Stand are great options, though you’ll have to provide your own AC adapter. In our tests they charged iPhones at the same rate as our Samsung picks and charged the Galaxy S8 as fast or faster, but they’re generally a few dollars less expensive. Both come with Micro-USB cables, but neither comes with an AC wall adapter, so you’ll need to use the charger that comes with your phone or tablet or buy one separately. Light-sensitive sleepers will appreciate the small blue charging-indicator lights, which you can easily cover.

IKEA Nordmärke triple pad – The best for multiple devices
IKEA Nordmärke triple pad

Can charge up to three devices at a time, but the top isn’t as grippy as we’d like.

IKEA’s Nordmärke triple pad is the best Qi charger for a family or an individual with multiple devices to charge. It charged every test phone at the same speeds as single-phone models, even when we were charging three phones at once. It also has an extra 2.4-amp USB-A port on the side for charging a fourth device, and that port can charge larger devices like iPads quickly. The Nordmärke’s only downside is the slightly slippy top surface.
