Build Your Personality, Be Addressed Like You Want to Be Addressed

The entertainment point gives a lot of information ranging from the latest news, celebrity gist, new music, movie review, fashion trend and more importantly personality development. Today I will be writing about four things that are decreasing human performance and productivity.

Here are four things you need to stop, because they are making us stressed out, reducing our productivity and negatively affecting our relationships and personal life:

1. Procrastination is the avoidance of doing a task that needs to be accomplished until later date or time. Sometimes, procrastination takes place until the last minute before a deadline. There is this feeling of ‘there is still time’, ‘I can do this later’ etc. Procrastination makes you do things in a haste thereby increasing chances of mistakes because you are doing them in the last minute and increasing pressure. Procrastination can lead to feelings of guilt, inadequacy, depression and self-doubt. Are you always late? Or you seem to do things when they are almost expiring or rather you still perform poorly when you have enough time to give a good performance, then check yourself you are procrastinating, fight it today by doing anything you want to do immediately, remember the saying “The Earlier The Better.”

2. Laziness: Laziness is also called indolence; it is a habit rather than a mental health issue. It reflect a lack of self esteem, a lack of discipline stemming from low self-confidence, or a lack of interest in the activity or belief in its worth. Sometimes you have this feeling when you have a lot of work to do, but you feel tired not because you are sick, but because you have a negative feeling towards the work or you feel the work is not worth giving your best. Laziness may manifest as procrastination. Remember “Anything worth doing is worth doing well

3. Distraction: Distraction is the process of diverting the attention of an individual from a desired area of focus and thereby blocking or reducing the reception of desired information. Distraction is caused by the lack of ability to pay attention; Lack of interest in the object of attention or the greater intensity of something other than the object of attention. We all are victims of distraction, in the 21st Century, with advancement of technology; there is increased distraction from our phones, social media, laptops, computer games, video games etc. Students today, find it difficult to concentrate in class; workers find it difficult to concentrate in their working place, thereby reducing both our performance and productivity. Even though distraction is useful in the management of pain and anxiety, we still have to learn how to concentrate whenever we are supposed to. Remember this saying by Beth Moore “If destruction fails to entangle us, distraction will do its best” Beth Moore

4. Workaholism (Workaholic): A workaholic is a person who works compulsively. A workaholic is one who works excessively hard and for long hours. While the term may imply that the person enjoys their work, it can …

A Guide to Buying Driving Gloves

There are three main reasons for buying a pair of driving gloves: increased grip on smooth controls; increased protection from dirt or the weather; and that they simply look fantastic. Whether it is emerging from your prized classic car, or to go with that magnificent handbag, driving gloves are for everyone. This guide will aim to inform you of the key considerations to keep in mind when buying a pair of driving gloves while pointing out some of the interesting reasoning behind their iconic design.

From a practical point of view, fit is especially important when it comes to choosing a pair. They are meant to be a tight fit to maintain an accurate feel of the controls, and this notion has filtered into the fashion accessory aspect too. Glove sizes thankfully range above and beyond the S, M and L. On your dominant hand, measure round the lowest knuckle of your little finger to the flesh above the webbing of your thumb. Then convert into inches (multiply by 2.54) rounding up to the nearest half to provide you with your size.

The materials used are a key consideration: leather provides a better grip, while being supple enough to easily respond to your movements, as well as providing the perfect level of insulation from the cold. It should be your sole choice when buying a pair of driving gloves as it also provides an element of luxury that is intrinsically linked to the aspirational ethos of such an accessory.

Whether you are driving or not, your hands are rarely still and empty, so buying poor quality leather will mean that it will mark and wear out quickly. In order to maintain an uninterrupted flow of information between your hands and the car, luxury driving gloves have all the seams on the inside and most likely will not have a lining. Moreover, your hands are certainly not simple shapes, which mean that there are a lot of these seams where poor workmanship will easily fray. Going for the cheapest option you find is in fact a false economy.

· To avoid this problem, you should ensure that they are at least made from Nappa or Napa leather, as its namesake tanning process means that it is soft and supple.

· The next step in quality is Hairsheep leather. It is particularly suited to driving gloves as it is finer than other leathers, meaning it is soft, supple and less bulky, while still retaining the strength.

· Deerskin leather is naturally tougher, while still being equally soft, luxurious and supple; it is therefore more expensive, but more durable and longer lasting than cow or sheep leather.

Driving gloves must also meet the requirement of maximum flexibility and minimum obstruction. This where a tight fit is important as well and also why a good pair will end short on the wrist and close tight with a button. These features prevent the glove from reducing the driver’s visibility to the dashboard, and also why …

MMA clothing has stuck a spark across the globe and tee shirts, hoodies and beanies can be seen everywhere. Those manufacturers and retailers who are new to the mixed martial arts clothing market are fired up and ready to introduce an even greater variety in this type of sportswear. The popularity of many of the MMA fighters has meant that a growing number of fans have copied what the fighters are wearing and this has helped to increase interest in both the sport and the clothing ranges.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship started in the early 90's and has gone from strength to strength, starting in the United States it now spans across most countries and has held fights recently in Germany, the United Kingdom, and Australia.

While the growing demand for MMA clothing is great for the industry as a whole, anyone who intends to participate in mixed martial arts need to have protective MMA clothing and gear for safety's sake. Cage fighters in particular need to wear protective head gear when they are competitive.

You should make sure that you check out the credentials of any website from which you purchase clothes. Most good MMA clothing sites will have secure payment as standard and good customer service, an added benefit from buying online is that it is often cheaper than buying it from a store. …

Fashion Industry Fueled by Bamboo Charcoal

Bamboo is referred to as “the Black Diamond” in Japan and Southeast Asia, bamboo charcoal fibre use is an emerging trend in the fashion industry as manufacturers look to combine fashion with function.

Green Earth News previously wrote about the many gains of bamboo charcoal so it must come as no surprise that those positive aspects extend to the fabric made from bamboo. The charcoal is created by heating bamboo at temperatures of 800 degrees and then the charcoal itself is processed and mixed in with fabrics as part of the growing field of nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology is defined as the “understanding, manipulation, and control of matter at the length mentioned above, thus, the physical, chemical, and biological properties of materials (individual atoms, molecules, and bulk matter) might be engineered, synthesized, or altered to develop the next generation of improved materials, devices, structures, and systems.” Hence, textile attributes for instance softness, durability, water resistance and breath-ability may be enhanced with the use of Nanotechnology.

The several positive features of bamboo charcoal fabric include:

Easier on sensitive skin – The fabric inhibits bacterial metabolism causing fewer allergic skin reactions than other fibers sterilized with antimicrobial agents.

Reduces Static buildup – This is really a conductive material so it keeps a balanced charge in fabric to reduce static buildup.

Superior Washing and Durability – Bamboo charcoal fibers are quick-drying and because the charcoal nano particles are embedded in the fabric rather than simply coated onto the surface, the fabric may be washed numerous times with no adverse effect on the charcoal qualities.

Moisture Regulation – Bamboo charcoal yarn has a cross-section filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes so compared to conventional fabrics, it is better at moisture absorption and ventilation. The fabric keeps the wearer dry and comfortable on hot days.

While the bamboo fabric technology is still relatively new, only gaining momentum in Asia from the mid-1990s, its uses are growing widespread ranging from clothing to carpeting to bedding. As they look towards more environmentally friendly fabrics that offer the same feel and durability of synthetic fabrics, bamboo charcoal is often a surprising but strong contender.

Another fine contender stemming from the world’s most renewable resource – bamboo – is viscose from bamboo fabric, offering a wide selection of fashion trends from bamboo clothing to bedspreads, baby blankets to luxurious bath towels.…
