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.

Many of us are tired of Security Alerts with GOOGLE.......Right? There is a Better way to Go if you are interested in more Security. Because even when there are not Cyber Security Threats on Google like Bank Accounts being hacked etc. Google is into Information Farming with your Searches and Purchases - tracking where you go on the Internet and what you Buy.

They do this mostly through a GOOGLE ANALYTICS program, they heavily promote to Website Owners and CEOs.

YES WHEN YOU READ ABOUT THIS, YOU WILL DISCOVER HOW IT WILL HELP A LOT OF PEOPLE AND CUT SOME EXPENSES. THIS IS A BIT LIKE THE STORY OF MAKING CRATES ETC FROM PLASTIC BOTTLES, PUTTING THEM TO USE FOR A GOOD PURPOSE. THIS IDEA COULD TAKE OFF WORLD-WIDE, AND AGAIN 'PUT US ON THE MAP' FOR A ROUND OF APPLAUSE. AND ALSO, IT COULD POSSIBLY ENCOURAGE MORE GROCERIES IN GLASS JARS INSTEAD OF CANS BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT LANDFILL. I WISH FOR THOSE - IT'S MUCH HEALTHIER.

Rather Than End Up in a Landfill, Non-Recyclable Glass May Soon Be a Cheaper New Ingredient in Concrete
From Good News Network

Australian researchers have developed an exciting new technique for making concrete out of non-recyclable glass that has been turned back into sand.
