Take breaks

While it may seem counterintuitive to step away from an urgent cram session, you have to give your brain time to relax and refresh. If you study for hours on end, you're more likely to forget information and mix things up. Giving yourself timed breaks helps you break your studying into manageable chunks. You can even coordinate your breaks with specific sections of material. Don't take a two-hour break though; use a timer to keep yourself accountable. You can try studying for 45-50 minutes and taking a break for 10-15 minutes.

Approach with caution

Cats can often be distrustful at first, so it's best to let them come to you. Don't come on too strong, or you risk scaring your furry friend away.

When you manage to get close to it, put out your hand slowly and don't make any sudden movements that could spook the cat. It's best to start at the areas where its facial glands are located: around the ears, chin, and cheeks.

Once the cat is comfortable with you, you can start stroking down its back. It's best to move slowly and predictably, and to avoid the belly (no matter how tempting) as you'll likely get scratched.

Approach with caution

Use a Treadmill

If you are planning to run a marathon or want to develop excellent running skills, you might find it difficult to go out for running all the time. To include the running practice in your schedule without thinking of the time, weather, and other factors, you can get a treadmill to practice running at home.

To run faster, start running at your normal speed, when you are ready to run faster, adjust the speed of your treadmill. 

Cold showers

While drenching yourself in cold water may sound quite unpleasant, it is a refreshing way to begin your day. Research suggests that cold showers make you more alert on account of the physiological effects of cold water on the body such as increased blood pressure, heart rate, and respiration.

Ginger Smoothie

For a twist in your regular morning beverage, put some ginger in your smoothie. Ginger has a strong flavor so make sure not to overload it in your smoothie. Ginger tastes great with a banana smoothie, spinach, carrot, and apple smoothies.

Engage Them in a Conversation

If you are trying to ask someone out who you have seen at a party, coffee shop, or an event, approach them in a friendly manner and talk to them. People who are interested in someone often make the mistake of starring at them from a distance. But you might make them uncomfortable and seem creepy.

If you want to ask someone out, start talking to them about something. Small talks are the best way to make a start. If you are at the coffee shop, ask them if they have tried the new seasonal drink.
