5 Things Not to Do After a Breakup

first_img Tweet 1. Call him every time you think about him. If your ex pops into your head every seven minutes, we wouldn’t be too concerned. (After all, how can you not think about the guy when your song comes on/when you find his shirt in your laundry/when someone quotes a line from the last movie you saw together/when the woman in front of you at the deli orders a sandwich with his favorite deli meat.) But if you’re actually dialing your ex’s number every seven minutes, like von Stalkerson did, you need to reel in the crazy.2. Share every up and down of your emotional roller coaster on Facebook. That goes double for thinly veiled postings. Because, this just in: Evvverybody knows exactly what you’re talking about when you write, “Some people will always be a-holes” or “Everything happens for a reason”. And it makes you look like you haven’t moved on and won’t anytime soon. Repeat after us: Facebook is not my diary, Facebook is not my dairy, Facebook is not my diary…3. Get a haircut. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Go to the salon post-breakup and you could walk out looking like Javier Bardem in No Country For Old Men. What’s worse than being newly single? Being newly single with a bowl cut. Wait till you’re in a slightly less stressed zone before you make any major changes to your look. (That means avoiding tattoo parlors too, obviously.)4. Throw yourself into the arms of another guy. Let us be perfectly clear: We’re fine with you throwing yourself into the bed of another man (hey, enjoy your newfound sexual freedom); we just don’t think you should get all emotional with a new dude and jump right into another relationship. We know you’re aching to be half of a twosome again, but letting the proverbial body get cold first will seriously up the chances that your next relationship will last.5. Try to be “just friends” right away. We’ve developed an easy quiz to figure out if you’re ready to be his buddy. Would you be totally cool hearing him talk about a new girl he’s into? One point for yes. Two points for heeeell no. If you have more than one point, being friends is out of the question.by Zoe RudermanMSN Love Share Share Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! 51 Views   no discussions LifestyleRelationships 5 Things Not to Do After a Breakup by: – February 23, 2012last_img read more

Driving on coffee ‘cuts crash risk’

first_img Share HealthLifestyle Driving on coffee ‘cuts crash risk’ by: – March 20, 2013 Tweet 16 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Share Sharing is caring! Four mugs or eight cups of coffee contain 400mg of caffeine which is the recommended adult daily limitLong-distance lorry drivers who drink coffee have fewer road traffic accidents, research suggests.Australian investigators say they found the link while comparing 530 heavy goods vehicle drivers who had recently been in a crash with 517 who had not.Coffee and other beverages containing the stimulant caffeine cut crash risk, probably because they boost alertness, the British Medical Journal reported.Road safety experts stressed caffeine was no substitute for sleep.In the study, more than a third said they drank caffeinated beverages and half of these said they did so in order to stay awake.The drivers who consumed caffeine to keep them from nodding off behind the wheel were 63% less likely to crash than drivers who had no caffeine.This was after adjusting for factors such as age, sleep patterns, kilometres driven, breaks taken and night-driving schedules.Nap adviceIf the driver had a poor track record of crashes in the past five years this had an impact on their likelihood of having another crash, raising their risk by 81%.About 70% of the drivers in the study said they stopped for a nap when they were tired – something that road safety experts strongly recommend.Lead researcher Lisa Sharwood and colleagues from the University of Sydney say while it is clear that tired drivers should be taking breaks, it still not clear what activities benefit them most during these breaks – napping or drinking coffee.“The varying extent to which activities such as taking a nap, drinking a cup of coffee, or going for a short walk contribute to subsequent vigilance behind the wheel are not well understood and are therefore recommended for further study,” they say.UK road safety experts say the only real cure for fatigue is sleep.A spokesman for the Department for Transport said: “Driving tired significantly increases the risk of an accident so we encourage drivers to ensure they are properly rested before climbing behind the wheel.“Drivers should get a good night’s sleep, plan sufficient breaks and pull over if they feel tired. “The Highway Code is clear that the most effective way to counter sleepiness while driving is to have, for example, two caffeinated drinks and take a short nap.”BBC Newslast_img read more
