However, that’s simply not true, as these accessible focus-boosting mental exercises and lifestyle changes demonstrate.
Maybe you’ve been making an honest effort to up your focus already but just can’t seem to do it. …
Mice! Oh, those annoying little rodents! No matter how cute you may find Jerry the cartoon mouse, of Tom & Jerry fame, it’s undeniable that seeing a live mouse gives lots of people the sudden fright.
Well, now if a little mouse does that to an intelligent human, imagine how scared an elephant would be when it sees a mouse. But wait, aren’t elephants supposed to be scared of mice? Isn’t that what’s been believed for centuries?
If that’s what you thought, it’s time to debunk some of the ideas in this myth. Yes, elephants being perpetually scared of mice…

But have you ever stopped and thought about whether ostriches truly bury their heads in the sand when they sense danger? Legends say “yes”, but biological science says “no”.
So, why do ostriches get such a bad rap? And if burying their head in the sand is a myth, then what do ostriches do when…
It’s an old comedy truism that to explain a joke is to kill it. Still, that’s exactly what humor theory seeks to do because when you get down to it, laughter is a strange phenomenon.
There are several theories about why humor might be an important psychological and social element of human society. Some see humor as a way of being able to prove you’re part of a group. Showing that you’re “in” on an “in-joke” helps prove you’re part of an “in-group,” thus fostering unity. It can also potentially be a way to cope with dark and difficult situations.
Broccoli, or vegetables in general, isn’t entirely a subject that sparks interest in minds of most people. Indeed the unassuming vegetable has garnered quite a bad reputation among young folk who see it as repulsive. This, we feel, is a disgraceful way to look at such a storied and versatile plant.

Olives are actually fruits; they are stone fruits and are related to mangoes, peaches, almonds, and pistachios. They grow on trees, and they are generally green when unripe but darken to black when fully ripened (some olives stay green even when ripe).
In the Mediterranean regions where olives are native, most olives are pressed into olive oil. Olive oil is a healthy source of fat and used for cooking many different kinds of dishes. It also makes a delicious salad dressing.
The olives that are not pressed for oil are usually processed and…
There are lots of people in this world who can’t start their days without a cup of coffee! Coffee has a very distinctive aroma and an earthy, roasty, acidic taste. It can be enjoyed in many different ways from hot and black, to cold brew with sweet cream, to a dessert-like fluffy drink with flavored syrups and whipped cream.
