Bad Beach Visit

I never go to the beach. I’m just not into blue skies, sparkling water and endless sunshine. My friends and family members think I’m an alien because of it, too. All I can say is I like being indoors, all of the time. I get a headache when I’m in bright weather, especially when it’s hot out.

I recently spoke to a friend who complained about her recent trip to a famous beach on an exotic faraway tropical island. She said that she heard that the sand on the beach felt smooth and soft like velvet. She said that that the claim couldn’t be further from the truth. She wanted to sunbathe but couldn’t because it felt like she was relaxing on uncomfortable silica sand. Since I don’t know what the most luxurious beaches on earth feel like, I couldn’t really get a grasp on what she was saying. All I could do was say “That’s a shame.”

I’m Watching You

After a few moments of consideration, ten to be exact, I have decided that I no longer want curtains in my home office. The main reason for this is because they are blackout curtains and I have no need for it to be so dark in a place I am supposed to work. I feel blinds Manchester are a logical choice for my new window treatment. Plus I am nosey and my office faces the street, I could easily spy on the neighbors.

At the store, I am perplexed by how many choices I have. There are wood, aluminum, vertical, white, black, long, and short ones. So many choices. Some are also insanely expensive, but I would still like some to change the look of my office. After an hour of indecisiveness, I leave with a white wooden vertical set. Hopefully, I can see everything now without being caught.

An EEG Biofeedback Specialist’s Discovery

My wife is an EEG biofeedback specialist that offers sleep uk therapy techniques to help patients who are suffering sleep disorders. During the course of her therapy sessions spanning roughly 6 years, she’s noticed a common occurrence amongst patients that she’s cured. Almost all of them have reported that in addition to being able to sleep better, they also have far less anxiety in life. This has lead my wife to speculate that sleep deprivation and lack of quality REM based sleep cycles could actually be the cause of many common anxiety based disorders. She’s published 3 separate studies backed by clinical research on the subject. Her published research has attracted many other EEG biofeedback specialists who have contacted her in order to share their similar findings. It will be interesting to see where continued research on this topic goes, as it could very well lead to the alleviation of two common health ailments in one swoop, that being sleep disorders and general anxiety.
