Sometimes there are things that you didn’t want to know, but trust me you need to know them.
Below are must reads and some really super interesting facts!
You shouldn’t make your bed
What?! Not make my bed you might ask?
Did you know that making your bed isn’t a good thing? It creates the ideal environment for germs and bed mites to grow. Leave your bed uncovered to air out the bed and prevent those critters from thriving.
The faster you eat your food, the more weight you’ll gain
How can eating fast make me fatter , faster?
Eating quickly is a bad idea if you’re trying to lose weight. A new study confirmed that scarfing down your food quickly, delays the release of stomach hormones that make you feel full. It leads to being able to overeat without even realizing it.
Short drivers sitting too close to the wheel can get you killed
How does my seat position determine my safety in my car?
When it comes down to driving safely in your vehicle, you probably remember that texting or speeding are always a big ‘no no’ and do cause the majority of accidents. No one ever thinks about the position of their seat or their distance from the steering wheel. Did you know that The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration state that there should be a distance of TEN or more inches between you & the steering wheel to be safe? This is due to the sheer power and impact that airbags create upon opening. Studies confirm that a steering wheel airbag generates a force of close to 2,000 pounds and opens at about 200 miles per hour…What?! Crazy to think us short girls have been sitting this close!
Your dog actually gets jealous
My sweet little furbaby? never! 🙂
In an extensive study at the University of California, they found that dogs do indeed get jealous of they see their owner displaying affection toward something or someone else. Having three dogs of my own, I can tell you that is not a surprise to me. They actually did a study on it and did find it to be accurate. Christine Harris stated “study suggests not only that dogs do engage in what appear to be jealous behaviors but also that they were seeking to break up the connection between the owner and a seeming rival”. My dogs definitely do that. They even hate when anyone hugs me!
The top food that causes more weight gain than any other? POTATO CHIPS
What? It can’t be…but my precious Doritos!
At Harvard University here in Boston where I live, conducted a study of more than 120,000 people just to determine what food caused the most weight gain among its participants. The glowing winner? chips. The runner up foods were potatoes, soda or other sweet drinks and unprocessed red meat. Next time your in the local 7-11 to grab a snack, walk past the chip aisle.
