3 Surprising Hidden Benefits of Wasting Time

Do you tend to procrastinate a lot?  I do, and I make lots of excuses why I tend to do that.  Surprisingly, all that avoiding and procrastinating can have its hidden benefits.

3 Surprising Benefits to Wasting Time

Daydreaming

Daydreaming might feel like the ultimate waste of time, but it may just be the opposite.  Here is what happens when you daydream:  your brain spaces out and flies to thoughts that are not related to that immediate moment - anything from thinking what to prepare for dinner to wondering about why your dog has been throwing up.   So forgive yourself for spacing out during church sermons.  You are being productive contemplating the future Smile.

Napping

Napping does a mind and body good.  It is my favorite past time and sometimes, I wish I live in Spain where they do a lot of napping.  Taking a moment to nap for like around 15 to 20 minutes can make you more alert and energized.  Take a nap a little longer and this will help you retain information better (this was my trick when I was reviewing for the board exams).  Don’t let the boss catch you!

Messiness

My mom was my exact foil.  She was the epitome of orderliness and I was the poster child of messiness.  This might sound strange to a lot of you, but I thrive in chaos.  Just because my “organized” is scattered does not mean I am less efficient.  I get wild blog ideas under all this mess!  And I tend to look at the brighter side when the mess does take the best of me. When I find myself searching for my keys in my bag, I think of the treasures I will discover in the depths of my bag.

Tips on Getting Your Kids To Eat Their Fruits & Veggies

When I was younger, my mom would force me to eat ampalaya (bitter gourd).
“Eat  your ampalaya and you will have great skin.”

Ampalaya. 1

And she will start a litany on how fruits and veggies can do wonderful things for you, like have good eyesight, get sick less often, be smart and alert, sleep well like you own a snoring pillow from cityofsleep.com, and a lot more.

I still eat a lot of veggies and fruits and you know what, when you eat your fruits and veggies, your kids get healthy.

Parents need to eat the diet they would like their child’s diet to become.  By eating fruits and veggies themselves, parents can start a lifetime of good food habits for their kids without having to say a word.

Here are ways on how you can make them eat their fruits and veggies:

Keep power out of it.

Don’t get me wrong.  I like ampalaya.  But not that much.  I think there was something about my mom letting me eat ampalaya and promising me it will taste good only to find out it was bitter that made me not love it.  So when letting your kids eat their fruits and veggies, just present the food and let the kids see you eating it.  Encourage them to have a taste.

Play “Is this the day?”

Each time a new fruit or veggie is offered, ask your child, “Is this the day you’ll like____"?”  This engages kids in the process of accepting a new food.

Continue offering fruits and veggies.

If they don’t like fruits and veggies, hang in there.  Keep offering fruits and veggies that are not immediate hits.  It often takes many trials before kids accept a new food.
