Distracted walking: A habit that can affect your body, brain

With the streets swarming with ‘petextrians’, concern over road safety looms ever larger. The programme Talking Point explores what happens when phone users walk distractedly and how Singapore can change this habit.

SINGAPORE: Zombies may be fictional, but distracted walkers are all too real. With necks bent, eyes lowered and ears plugged, they navigate our streets with devices in hand — you’ve either seen them or are them.

As early as 2015, a survey conducted by Nanyang Technological University students found that 93 per cent of 419 youths admitted to “multi-tasking while walking”, which led to 598 reported accidents among them.…

Are You Fed-Up With The Behaviour Of The Royals? I Am, This Is Why –
This Was The Worst! My thoughts tell me in recent times that Charles is using his power the wrong way and wielding it against Harry. Never mind Meghan, if she is not allowed to visit the Palace again – I can understand that. Folks, I am speaking about a Son – one who has already been hurt so much, he became mentally unbalanced and wrote Spare. And more importantly, the People who Relate with Invictus have been left out of Royal Recognition because ALL Royals were Absent. They have been caught in the Cross-Fire, so to speak. That is Totally Unfair!

There are Conflicting News Reports (as usual) that 1. the Royals did not wish to attend 2. Harry did not Invite them, Quite honestly, either could be true.

HERE'S AN INOVATIVE APPROACH TO WEIGHTLOSS
THAT IS RECORDING GOOD RESULTS.

By Positive.News

You’d be forgiven if you thought the key to improving your health was a New Diet or more Willpower. Turns out it’s Kindness, says the founder of a unique program that launched in January.

Every Sunday, participants in Eddie Jones’ Health Program fill in a form to let him know how they got on during the week. But they’re not tracking workout duration, weight loss or calories. Instead, they’re totting up Acts of Kindness.

“It’s completely Anonymous, so I can’t tell who’s writing. I’ll never know,” Jones says. “I just dip into it every week or two. There have been some really, really wonderful things in there.”

He points to a participant who bought a supermarket voucher for someone who was struggling to feed their children. Another cared for a bee with an injured wing. Someone else simply wrote a kind note to an acquaintance and slipped it into a flower pot for them to find.…

Lachlan Brown - Writer and Psychologist

Navigating life is a bit like dancing—it’s all about knowing when to step forward and when to take a step back. Or in some cases, when to stay completely still.

And by ‘still’, I mean silent.

Hi there, I’m Lachlan Brown, a mindfulness enthusiast. I’m here to tell you that sometimes, silence is the most powerful statement you can make.

Psychology says there are certain situations where the wisest course of action is to simply hold your tongue and let silence speak volumes.

Let’s delve into these 8 situations where it’s best to remain silent. 

1) When emotions are running high

We’ve all been there. Tensions are rising, voices escalating, and the air is practically humming with emotion. It’s in these instances that psychology urges us to zip it.

Why, you ask? Well, because as per research, emotional arousal impairs our ability to process information and make balanced decisions.…

Negative thoughts can contribute to problems such as social anxiety, depression, stress, and low self-esteem. The key to changing your negative thoughts is to understand how you think now (and the problems that result), then use strategies to change these thoughts or make them have less of an effect.

"Our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are all linked, so our thoughts impact how we feel and act. So, although we all have unhelpful thoughts from time to time, it’s important to know what to do when they appear so we don’t let them change the course of our day," explains Rachel Goldman, PhD, a psychologist and clinical assistant professor at the NYU School of Medicine.

Therapy can often be helpful for changing negative thoughts, but you can also learn how to change your thought patterns. This article discusses some of the steps you can take to change your negative thoughts.…

Too Much Stuff

If your closets are bursting or your desk is topped with piles of disorganized papers, you may want to take some steps toward a neater home or workspace. While a bit of chaos might have some upsides -- at least one study suggests that a messy room spurs creativity -- it has many more downsides. It can even be damaging for your physical and mental health.

WHY DO WE CRAVE SUGAR?
There are many reasons why we go for sweet things.

That appetite may be hardwired. "Sweet is the first taste humans prefer from birth," says Christine Gerbstadt, MD. Carbohydrates stimulate the release of the feel-good brain chemical serotonin. Sugar is a carbohydrate, but carbohydrates come in other forms, too, such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, which have fiber and nutrients your body needs.

The taste of sugar also releases endorphins that calm and relax us, and offer a natural "high," says Susan Moores, a registered dietitian and nutrition consultant in St. Paul, MN.

Sweets just taste good, too. And that preference gets reinforced when you reward yourself with sweet treats, which can make you crave it even more.

How to Stop Sugar Cravings: Tips to Use Right Now
If you're craving sugar, here are some ways to tame those cravings.

Reach for fruit. Keep fruit handy for when sugar cravings hit.…
