Stay Hydrated!

Everyone somewhat knows the importance of drinking water.  In fact, did you know water is the second most popular drink in the U.S right after soft drinks?  We all frequently quench out thirst by drinking water, but are you properly staying hydrated?  It is important to avoid dehydration.  A study shows that we should drink about eight ounces of water daily, not counting any sugary and unhealthy beverages such as soda or lemonade.  What other benefits are there from drinking water?

Our body is comprised of 70% of water.  Since our bodies have a plethora of ways to lose water, it is important to stay hydrated to maintain that proper water balance.  Drinking water frequently helps you with weight loss.  Drinking water results in the removal of fat by-products and cause you to feel fuller.  Also, it is highly recommended for everyone who is seeking weight loss to have a couple of glasses of water before going to bed.  Staying hydrated helps with your skin as well.  A study shows that if your skin is not getting enough water, dehydration will happen by turning your skin dry.  There are also other numerous benefits from drinking water such as helping with digestion, blood circulation, concentration, and movement of our joints.  Especially, drinking water after you wake up strengthens your immune system!   So, always stay hydrated for a healthier lifestyle!

Dogs are Human’s Best Friend

There is currently about 70% of U.S consumers who own a pet.  Out of those 70% of U.S consumers, about half of them own a dog.  Why do people own dogs?  If you are not a pet owner, this question might be a little difficult.  However, here are the reasons why owning a dog is beneficial.

There are multiple benefits of having dogs for humans.  For instance, dogs help with improving your heart and preventing depression.  Also, spending time with dogs help with improving your mood.  A study shows that being with your dog reduces your stress and helps you relax.  Also, having a dog encourages a healthy & active lifestyle. Dogs love to run and exercise!  Since it is the dog owner’s responsibility of working their dogs, dog owners’ lifestyle should be more active.  Regular walks with a dog will not only keep you away from computer screen, but also prevent them from getting obese.  Dogs will be your best friend because dogs are extremely loyal.  The reason why dogs are pack animals who want to bond with a group, and they show loyalty to those who could be part of their pack.  When they are home and bond with their owners, they become part of their ‘pack’ and fiercely loyal to the human family.

Importance of Public Speaking

Throughout your years of school, you might have had the chance to get up in front of the class and present a topic. For those who hated public speaking, this moment had to be an ultimate embarrassing experience. Public speaking is a form of fear to some because they are afraid of what people perceive of them. In fact, about 30% of Americans are highly scared of public speaking. Unfortunately, this fear could potentially have a negative impact on your professional & personal life. Why exactly do people fear public speaking?
People fear public speaking for a plethora of reasons. They are afraid of being judged by their audience failures, embarrassment, going off the script and more! Although these internal and external factors might stop you from doing the best presentation, there are a few tips to improve your public speaking skills.

1. Be sure to organize & Plan ahead
2. Consistent practices
3. Engage with your audience
4. Get Comfortable with the environment
5. Be yourself and try to be confident
Myeka Johnson, CEO of Direct Consultants LLC, is an excellent public speaker. Ever since then, she had always valued the importance of public speaking in business. Therefore, she decided to develop her public speaking skill by taking a few public speaking classes in college, and joined the Toastmaster afterwards. Her diligent efforts have helped Myeka to always feel confident during the presentation.

 

Drinking Coffee is an Energetic Solution.

Did you know that Starbucks stores across the world in average sell over 8 million cups of coffee daily?  For some people, drinking coffee in the morning is more of a ritual than just drinking.  In fact, there are some people who cannot function efficiently & effectively at their workplaces without consuming a cup of coffee.  People normally drink coffee to stay awake for a long time.  Why do millions of people drink coffee in the morning?  Are there more benefits from drinking coffee?

Coffee contains caffeine which is known as the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance.  Caffeine cause people to be less tired.  Also, drinking coffee helps us with burning fat because a few studies show that our metabolic rate increase by 3-11% when we drink some coffee.  Also, drinking coffee boosts one’s energy level, memory, mood, and more!

The CEO of Direct Consultants, Myeka Johnson, is a person who enjoys coffee frequently.  As an avid coffee drinker, she tends to drink about three to four cups of coffee daily.  She loves to drink coffee because it is a mood booster and helps her with relaxing.  She enjoys trying out different textures of coffee.  So, go buy a cup of coffee if you want to be energized!

Disc Golf > Regular Golf

Try to picture this.  You are sitting home with your friends, and you are also bored to death.  What if one of your friends suggests playing golf?  Well, it might sound like an interesting idea at first, but playing golf comes with a few hindrances.  First, learning how to play golf requires months of constant & diligent practices.  Not to mention that, all of golfing equipment & golfing lessons are always expensive.  Also, the average cost of playing one round per person tends to be from $15 to $100.  Therefore, it seems like playing golf isn’t the best option then.  So, how about playing disc golf instead?

Disc golf shares many similarities with regular golf.  Instead, disc golf is a game in which a plastic disc is thrown into chain-catching metal baskets that are set up on an outdoor course, the object being to complete the course using the least possible throws.  There are currently over 5,000 disc-golf courses in the United States.     Disc golf has been popular for a long time because it is easy to learn, a healthy activity and accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels.  It is also an inexpensive hobby because almost every disc golf course is free for everyone.  Also, any disc could be purchased between $5 and $15.

Overall, disc golf is a fantastic way to relieve your stress while spending some quality time with your friends in the nature!  So, if you don’t have any plans today, why don’t you go disc?

Benefits of Watching Film

When was the last time you watched a film?  Did you watch it by yourself or with your family?  Whether you watched it alone or with someone else, films are certainly incredible psychological tools for enhancing your imagination.  Films are used for many purposes such as education, inspiration, stress reliever and date ideas with your partner.  One normally tends to feel isolated from your reality for moment.  We slowly indulge in watching a film, then our mind is at ease because you are focused on nothing but a movie.  However, there are more reasons people should watch films frequently.

Watching a film is a terrific opportunity for families to get together.  It is an inexpensive & enjoyable activity that easily strengthens family bonds.  It certainly is a way for families to bring closer.  Also, watching films tends to boost the cultural knowledge of the audience.  Many movies nowadays display a variety of foreign customs and traditions from all over the world.  Therefore, it is an excellent chance for the audience to gain further insights about our world.  Lastly, films can be educational by teaching us the values in history, culture, science, technology, politics, and a lot more!  So, if you don’t have any plan this weekend, why don’t you catch a movie?

 

World Cup is Finally Back!

It has been four years since Germany defeated Argentina in the extra time during the final and became the winner of 2014 World Cup in Brazil.  It was truly a fantastic soccer match that soccer fans cannot forget.  Ever since then, the entire world waited patiently for the commencement of the world’s most-watched sporting event.  Finally, after all these everlasting days & weeks, 2018 World Cup has started yet again in Russia.

Some might be surprised, but there are still some people who don’t know what exactly World Cup offers.  So, why is the World Cup so globally popular?  Well, every four years, thirty-two of the best men’s national soccer teams compete for the title of FIFA World Cup winner.  Lifting the World Cup trophy is literally every professional footballers’ dream.  World Cup is also an opportunity for soccer fans to watch national teams that consist of world-class players such as Germany, Spain, Brazil and France.  World Cup has always been known as the most widely viewed sporting event in the world.  For instance, over one billion people tuned in worldwide to watch the final game of the 2014 competition, exceeding even the Summer Olympics and Super Bowl!  So, we hope that everyone enjoys this amazing sporting event in Russia!  Just out of curiosity, who do you have on winning the 2018 World Cup?

How was your First Day of Work?

You probably remember your first day of work.  There are some people who enjoy their first day of work, but majority of workers tend to struggle on their first day of work mainly due to a lack of knowledge within the workplace and inexperience.  In the beginning, your workplace almost seems like a totally different country with its own unique culture, and your co-workers seem like distant foreigners.  You had to be anxious about so many things when you start your job such as leaving a solid first impression with your boss and co-workers, excelling in your duties & responsibilities, making a careless error, and a lot more.

Generally, the first day of work has been known as one of the most stressful days for the employees.  Well, for those people who are about to start their first jobs or those who are planning on working in a professional environment one day, here are some things you want to do & not to do.

Do’s:

  • Be yourself. Remember that you are already hired, so your boss obviously sees potential in you.  So, there is absolutely no need for you to go overboard with impressing your boss.  In fact, your boss will most likely appreciate you even more if you act you’re your normal self.
  • Lay Foundations. It is essential for any employee to know his or her exact objectives & in the workplace.  Doing this will give you a sense of purpose within the company.
  • Try to be social. If your boss or colleagues ask you for lunch or after-work drinks, then I highly recommend you accept the invitation unless you certainly cannot.  Your co-workers might be impressed with your work ethic, but some want to see the fun side of you.  Also, social events are helpful because it gives a chance to get to know your co-workers more on a personal basis.

Don’t:

  • Be late to work. Being late on your first day heavily implies to your boss that you don’t value the company or your colleague’s time.
  • Insult your past co-worker or boss. You might have been fired or quit your last job, and you might want to vent the incident to your new co-workers.  However, try to avoid speaking badly about them.  You are now in a better work environment with a fresh start.
  • Decline your co-worker’s help. I am aware that some introverted individuals don’t like to be depended on others.  However, if your co-workers offer to help you on your first day, be sure to allow his generosity.  If you decline, some colleagues might be insulted or consider you as a non-team player.
