Choosing the Right Tea to Match Your Mood
We as humans tend to experience multiple moods that come and go without any notice and quite frankly, it can get really frustrating. A kind gesture from a stranger can make your entire day. But, all of a sudden, an inconsiderate jerk pushes past you in order to get the last available seat on the subway and then an immediate transformation occurs. That one quick, yet affective gesture has officially dampened your high spirits and whiplashed you into another mood you really didn’t want to be in. Instead of being heavily medicated and secluding yourself in your room during a Netflix binge, grab a cup of tea and let its natural ingredients do the healing. Common cold: Elderflower Avoiding the common cold is inevitable sometimes. You feel yourself being cautious when you’re in public spaces, yet you still manage to pick it up after you used about half a gallon of hand sanitizer. Elderflower tea relieves the symptoms of a common cold. It has a gentle and pleasant tea, so it’s welcoming to people of all ages, especially young kids. It contains antiviral and immune boosting effects, so it can tackle flu symptoms and other common cold problems. Stressed: Lemon Balm Maybe you have to meet a strict deadline for work. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed because finals are approaching and you’re trying to cram in last minute study sessions. You have found that physically you’re exhausted, but the gears running in your mind won’t seem to shut off. Lemon balm aids relaxation and calmness. The oils in lemon balm contain chemicals that relax muscles, particularly in the stomach and bladder, and calms future anxieties you may be experiencing. Slow metabolism: Green Tea Whether you’re looking to shed a couple extra pounds, or simply speed up your metabolism, green tea has proven to be very beneficial in EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), an ingredient known to speed up metabolism. Try to make it a habit of consuming 4-6 cups a day in order to notice a significant change in energy level. Sleepless nights: Chamomile Chamomile tea is strictly herbal based, so it doesn’t contain any caffeine, which is the main ingredient for keeping someone up in the first place. The tea itself has a unique, sweet, and floral aroma and will have a drowsiness effect on you. Your local grocery store should have brands like Celestial Seasonings and Traditional Medicinals, which are two of my favorite brands; however, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even go as far as drying out the flowers and brewing them yourself. Bloated: Peppermint Peppermint has been known to help fatigue and stomach problems. It calms your internal systems and is extremely useful if you over-indulge in a late night meal or food loaded with sugars and fibers that the body finds hard to absorb. Next time you’re feeling uncomfortable because you maybe had one too many slices of cake, try and drink some peppermint tea to settle your stomach and reduce bloating. Nauseous: Ginger Tea Soon to be mothers have claimed that Ginger has helped them during pregnancy sickness. If you make this tea from grated root ginger, it will provide even more benefits. First, you want to steep two teaspoons in boiled water. Then, let it sit until it’s cool. Finally, sip on it casually, and you should find your nausea disappearing. Try not to consume more than three teaspoons a day.
전직 삼성 법무팀장이 폭로한 이건희 둘째딸의 감각.jpg
"...서울대 미대를 나온 홍라희는 패션 디자인과 미술에 관심이 많았다. 집안 잔칫날 패션쇼를 하기도 하고, 심지어는 사장단 회의석상에서 남성복 패션쇼를 한 일도 있다. 안양 베네스트 골프장의 캐디 유니폼을 직접 골라주기도 했다. 해마다 제일모직의 여성복 디자인도 홍라희가 직접 결정해준다. 자기 나름대로는 자상하고 친절한 모습을 보여주려 한 모양이다. 하지만 그 덕분에 제일모직 여성복 사업부장은 매출 부진으로 연말이면 항상 회사에서 쫒겨나곤 했다. 홍라희의 패션 감각은 보통사람들의 그것과 워낙 동떨어져 있던 까닭에 홍라희가 골라준 디자인에 따라 옷을 만들면 도무지 팔리지가 않았다. 그렇다고 홍라희가 고른 디자인을 무시할 수도 없었다. 그래서 제일모직 여성복 사업부장 자리는 제일모직 임원의 무덤이라는 말이 나오곤 했다. (중략) 이건희 부부가 가진 옷에 대한 관심은 정작 삼성 계열 의류업체인 제일모직의 경쟁력에는 별 도움이 되지 않았다. 홍라희가 고른 디자인이 늘 시장에서 실패했던 것은 한 사례일 뿐이다. 제일모직이 원단을 제조한 지 50년이 넘었고, 이탈리아 유명 원단 제조업체에서 염색 전문가를 채용하기도 했지만, 이탈리아 중저가 원단과 경쟁하기도 힘겨워했다. 심지어는 국내 중소기업과의 경쟁에서도 밀렸다. 타임, 마인, 시스템, 에스제이 등 브랜드를 가진 의류업체 한섬과의 경쟁에서 제일모직이 밀린 게 대표적인 사례다.  이건희와 그 주변 사람들의 사치스런 생활을 지켜보며, 나도 이름바 '명품'의 세계에 눈을 떴다. 그런데 '명품'은 실용성은 엉망인 경우가 많다. 이를테면 이건희 일가가 입는 명품 양복은 일상복으로 입을 수 없다. 쉽게 구겨지고 주름이 생기기 때문이다. 이처럼 불편한 옷을 입는다는 게 그들에게는 귀찮은 일을 직접 할 필요가 없는 신분을 보여주는 상징처럼 여겨지는가보다. (중략) 제일모직을 운영하는 이건희의 둘째 딸 이서현은 "100만원 짜리 옷을 만들어봤자 누가 입겠느냐"는 말을 한 적이 있다. 100만원 짜리 옷이 너무 비싸서 안팔릴 것이라는 뜻이 아니다. 그 반대다. 너무 싸구려 옷이라서 사람들이 입고 다니기 창피해할 것이라는 이야기였다. 한국 사회에서 100만원 짜리 옷이 너무 싸구려라고 생각할 사람이 얼마나 될까. 물론, 이탈리아 명품 의류업체들처럼 해외에 수출하는 비중이 크다면, 최상위 부자들만 겨냥한 제품도 성공할 수 있다. 하지만, 이서현이 이야기한 옷은 국내 판매용이었다. 이서현의 말은 깊은 생각에서 나온 게 아니었다. 그는 그저 100만원이 보통 사람들에게 어느 정도의 돈인지에 대한 감각이 없었을 뿐이다." -------------------------------------------------------- 역시 삼성다운 그사세의 어나더레벨
What A Coke Does To Your Body In 1 Hour
I'll be the first to admit that I love Coca Cola. But it's absolutely horrible for us. A very detailed infographic supplied by has officially proven again how bad Coke is for your body (WE KNOW). The American CDC has said that 25% of Americans drink soda on a regular basis which is a hefty reason why obesity has run rampant. Sugar is the main culprit since an average can of soda can contain 3 tablespoons of sugar and 4 tablespoons if in a 12-ounce-bottle. Coke is one of the most popular soft drinks in the United States with a massive marketing empire so there will never be a day where we won't see it somewhere. But there comes a time where you need to take a moment and see what you're putting into your body. Let's take a look : All it takes is ONE Coke : First 10 Minutes : 10 teaspoon of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don't immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down. In 20 Minutes : Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your live responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There's plenty of that at this particular moment.) In 40 Minutes : Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness. In 45 Minutes : Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way. In 60 Minutes : The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine providing a further boost in metabolism. This is a compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. After 60 Minutes : The caffeine's diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you'll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium, and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water. As the rave inside of you died down you'll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You've also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in theCoke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like having the ability to hydrate your system of build strong bones and teeth. Why you should care? - Coke weakens bones and teeth. - Increases your chance for getting diabetes. - It slows your metabolism, especially long term. - Aspartame in the soda leads to disease and organ irritation. - Coke has negative affects on fertility. - It leads to weight gain. - Can worsen asthma or increase risk for heart disease. - Cancer, Osteoporosis, and Kidney issues are common in people who drink soda. - It's expensive to continually buy it. - Diet sodas are a scam and false advertising. All soda is bad for you. - No nutritional value. - Raised cholesterol and specifically increased belly fat. Do I need to say more? Coke or soda for that matter is never a good idea. (But don't worry, I still love it.)
