  Perhaps, the most popular gift all over the world is the gift of Flowers. Beyond its beauty of flowers passes across a message of love when gifted, whether it is a carefully chosen bouquet of flowers or just a stem, it is sure to convey a warm feeling to the recipient. Flowers can boost a person's mood, put a smile on their face or even make them cry with joy of your thoughtfulness. 

 Its not only because flowers are exquisitely beautiful or fragrance, it is also because they carry the freshness of nature and the world outside with them. The main reason for the popularity of flowers as gifts though is their ability to bring good cheer and convey the right message with their language and the message they pass across. 

Flowers appeal to all our senses and brighten up our lives and our hearts, they not only express the exact sentiment, but also gifting a different type or color of flower would convey a different emotion, which one might find difficult to express in words. You only have to let your imagination run wild to make your bouquet as expressive as your emotions.

 Gifting flowers maybe mainly to make the recipient feel good, but it also creates this tingling feeling of inner joy oftenly as a result of the bright reactions we get from the recipient. It`s  a thing  I`ve expirienced; FELT really good. You should try gifting a flower soonest to your loved ones and see their reactions.

  Making new people you meet have a different mind set of you from who you really are might be that easy to pull off being that they have no idea of who you were, I grew up in a neighbourhood with alot of crazy friends which definitely made me behave the same way, growing up, I began to feel different,
  I decided to take a few steps and work on my first impression, may be that could help with the way the new people I met feel about me. I didn't exactly want to totally change from who I was to a different person, I'd never advice you to do that, just try and work on you being more inviting and also in a way that gives a clearer picture about your good qualities.

 I've come up with 4 ideas that worked for me and think would also do for you. These are simple approaches, it's just about making an effort to try them when you meet new people

 It's quite obvious and well known that smile is a measure of attraction, I for the record I'm quite found of smiling when having a conversation and try a lot to make jokes, though not that much so you wouldn't be thought as a humorous person. While smiling is important, you probably don't want to have a cheesy and inauthentic grin all over your face, cus it may risk them thinking "Is he trying to cover up his nervousness or something", this is why you also need to keep a straight face half of the way. Smiling doesn't only make people comfortable around you, it also goes a long way to make people think of you as a nice person. 

   The eye shot 
  Making eye contact is one of my thing during a conversation cus this actually goes a long way in getting people interested in what you have to say. 
  I'd also tell you that it's a great idea not to over do it, give it a break, no one enjoys eye contact for long, at least not from a stranger, you don't want to risk them getting nervous or avoiding your eye contact. Looking away too much also makes you appear distracted, keep your shot on the average. 

   Be present
  When meeting someone new, you’re in an unusual situation, and your mind is racing faster than ever: "do i look odd? what is she/he thinking about me? Am I sounding good enough? What do I say next?" Quit it. Silence those voices. Mind race cuts off your attention and at the end you'd have just had a shot and unproductive meet. Slow it, take a breath. 
  When meeting for the first time, I always aim at retaining some piece of information about them to be able to meet them again, ask only relevant questions-questions you know the answers would help you meet them another time. 
  Your full attentiveness will create a level of comfort. “The better you make the other person feel, the more they’ll be inclined to have a positive impression of you”.

   Make a connection
  When I met someone new, I try to inquire a few things about them and relate it to my self, like have you read a recent book? Or watch a recent movie?. This doesn't only help in generating comfort, it also helps you get something to talk about. Remember to be positive, trust me, they don't want to hear about how your dog died, or your pocket that was picked. 
  Your upbeat attitude and positivity will make for a great first impression.

  With these few tips, you'd be on and going with new friends. Please comment and also let me know what else we should add to this.

Sleep makes you feel better, but its benefits goes far beyond just banishing under-eye circles. The amount of sleep you get a night invest a lot in your day to come.

 In other words if you’re trying to learn something new—whether  it's a new language or a new tennis swing—you’ll perform better after sleeping.

2. Adequate sleep prevents obesity:
 Poor sleep is strongly linked toweight gain. People with short sleep duration tend to weigh significantly more than those who get adequate amount of sleep. In fact, short sleep duration is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity.

 Researchers suggested getting plenty of sleep might prevent weight gain.

3. A good sleep reduces stress:
When it comes to our health stress and sleep are nearly one and the same—and both can affect cardiovascular health. If you're body lacks adequate amount of sleep, it goes into a state of stress. Stress puts the body system on high alert which causes high blood pressure and the production of stress hormones. High blood pressure increases your risk of heart attack and stroke, stress hormones makes it harder to fall asleep.   Sleep can definitely reduce levels of stress, and with that people can have better control of their blood pressure.
More relaxation techniques should also be observed to counteract the effect of stress.

  You can help to prevent depression by getting the right amount of sleep of about 7 to 9 hours a day. A good night’s sleep can really help a moody person decrease their anxiety. You get more emotional stability with good sleep.

6. Reduced heart attacks and stroke:
Sleep quality and duration can have a major effect on the risk of drive chronic diseases, including heart disease.
Heart diseases and stroke are most likely to occur in the morning hours, which is oftenly due to the way sleep interacts with the blood vessels. Lack of sleep has been associated with worsening of blood pressure and cholesterol, which are risks factors for heart disease and stroke. Your health will remain healthy if you get sleep good between 7 to 9 hours a day.

7. Longer livespan:
Sleep also affects quality of life. Regularly sleeping less than you should is associated with a shorter lifespan, although it is not clear whether little sleep is the cause, or an effect of other illnesses.(illness also affects sleeping pattern) Studies have found people who routinely sleep for fewer than 6 hours a night have a higher risk of dying sooner than people of a similar age who sleep between 7 to 9 hours a night.

8. Reduces risk of inflammatory:
Increased stress hormone caused by lack of sleep raises the level of inflammation in your body. Inflammation is linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, and premature aging risking bad health condition like cancer and diebetes.
Inflammation is thought to make the body deteriorate as we age. This can be curbed by getting a good amount of sleep.

9. Sleep helps the body repair itself:
Sleep is a time to relax, but it's also a time during which the body is at work repairing damages caused by stress, ultraviolet rays and other harmful exposure. Your body cells produce more protein when you are asleep. These protein produced are in charge for forming the body blocks for cells, showing them to repair damages.

10. Good sleep improves you immune function:

Even a small loss of sleep has been shown to impair immune function, lack of sleep can suppress your immune system, which makes you more vulnerable to infections.
On a large 2 weeks study observed the development of the common cold after giving people nasal drops with the virus that causes colds.They found that those who slept less than 7 hours were almost three times more likely to develop a cold than those who slept 7 hours or more.
  "Night time isn't the only time to shut your eyes. Napping during the day is an effective, refreshing alternative to caffeine that is good for your overall health and can help you to be more productive. A study of some Greek adult showed that people who took nap at work sore much lower level of stress. Napping also improves your mood."
