This Will Make Your Oatmeal A Game Changer!

This Will Make Your Oatmeal A Game Changer!

Did you know you can make your oatmeal healthier and taste better without adding sugar or other empty calories by using tea?

Most of the time, oatmeal is made with water or milk. As an alternative, tea gives you various tastes, from fruity and floral to herbal and spice-heavy aromas that make you feel warm and snug, plus it has extra nutrients.

To add tea to your oatmeal, make a cup of tea as you normally would: bring a half cup of water to a boil, add your tea bag, and let it sit for as long as the package says. Then, take the tea bag out and add the oats. For instant or steel-cut oats, use one cup of rolled oats and follow the directions on the package.

Tips To Avoid Online Job Scams

Tips To Avoid Online Job Scams

The Federal Trade Commission is warning Americans about con artists looking to steal your data – or even money – with fake job offers.  Here are some things to look out for:

  • DO YOUR RESEARCH– Google the company and see what comes up – are other people complaining about getting scammed?  Do they have a legitimate website and business? Does it seem legit?  Is that email coming from a business address or a personal account?  Have you spoken to an actual person or just communicated through email or chat?  Are they asking for personal information that seems unnecessary?
  • DON’T PAY MONEY FOR A JOB OFFER– Scammers will sometimes ask for money to pay for equipment or other expenses, promising to reimburse you later.  That’s a major red flag.

Struggling With Procrastination? This Technique May Help!!

Struggling With Procrastination? This Technique May Help!!

Francesco Cirillo created the “Pomodoro Technique” in the late 1980s while he was still a student. He became aware that his study sessions weren’t producing enough results, so he came up with a solution.

He grabbed a kitchen timer and set it for 25 minutes. He focused for the determined time and followed it with a short break. This helped him to accomplish more.  The break should last between two to five minutes, then repeat by resetting the timer for another 25 minutes and focusing on your next task. These bursts of productivity are called “pomodoros.” 

After four work sessions, take a longer 15-30 minute break.

Breaking things into tiny chunks helps you avoid feeling overwhelmed by a major task.
