Depression and easy solutions to getting out of it

Why do people dwell on past memories?

Why do people cope up with all this suffering, when there is nothing and if at all there is any, it should be flushed down a toilet.

These are common characteristics of depression. Failure, to comprehend realities, dwelling on past miseries and most of all gaining satisfaction from it.

On the alternate side, there is this innate fear that something bad might happen to people whom you like.

Is there a solution?


But it takes some time and a bottle of common sense.

I say this not because of the above options, but to shake of the system or social supporters of such a system.

They need a scapegoat, and it is high time you realize that you are the evangelical scapegoat.

Take time off, give each of the a piece of your supposed, hypothetical miseries, the ones you are afraid off, the ones you try to hide.

Don’t give it with any anger or remorse. But give it as if you are sharing something valuable, such as say you have received some huge parcel of food or even a prize. Make it look like something valuable, and then you won’t feel bad about it.

Give after a week, list down the number of miseries and fears left.

Should there be no improvement, don’t despair. Go back to the old schedule, but you have a few less of your hypothetical fears and worries left.

Do this again after two weeks. Note the improvement.

Now, also you would start receiving feedbacks from the people you have shared your prizes. If there is a positive response, then you have to really work with yourself.

It would help even if you discuss these problems with a counselor.

Alternately, if your friends, colleagues, neighbors or relatives start politely turning down your prize giving habit, then you don’t have much to worry.

Your theory is not hypothetical; there is a social problem out here.

Each week or two weeks, change your approaches, modus operandi and you would be on the road to recovery.

Perhaps, it would even turn out to be one of the best experiences and lessons you ever learn.

Hawaii Cheap-Flights

I was searching for travel locations and hoping to locate some travel vacation packages, when I accidentally happened to land on the page regarding information on trips to Hawai'i.. Going through the info, it became aware why Hawaii is the United States' top holiday destination... ROMANCE! But weddings apart, any reason to getaway, be it birthdays or anniversaries, they all are just excellent reasons to celebrate romance in the Islands of Aloha.

Then there are those who may have visited the Hawaiian Islands sometime before and thought of settling down there. But then, somehow years passed, and that thought was filed somewhere…. However, somewhere you knew that living in Hawaii was more than just a dream and that it could bring you amazing experiences, meet fascinating people, let alone other richness.

Let http://cheap-flights.going2oahu.com help you make that dream a reality.

On the other hand, if it’s a place you have been dreaming to visit since who knows when, then it’s better you check it out..

Basically, the most spoken of 'thing' about Hawaii is its legendary beaches.

Maybe it isn't exactly legendary, but coupled with the promotion, advertising, and the view from the air-plane, the first 'thing' that comes into your mind would be to hit the beaches

Now let’s check what else is in store for a visitor to Hawaai...

Apart from buying the best prices for a ticket, the next tedious problem would be to find the ‘right airline to fly’. Ofcourse, tour agencies do provide you with dozens of options, but its just so darn difficult to find the right flight.

A savvy traveler seeking information about excursions to Hawai'i can visit Going2Oahu Cheap-Flights for your Hawaii Cheap-Flights Superstore with Resources for Your Hawaii Vacation

This isn’t exactly a sales pitch, but the information you get there is pretty useful... Rather than going on about it, just give it a check.

That’s about it…. get your travel bags and envision yourself on a romantic Hawaiian Holiday.

Aloha……and have fun…

Procrastination and happiness

Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases, and its toll on success and happiness is heavy. If you wait until all the lights are "green" before you leave home, you'll never get started on your trip to the top.

As you begin to take action toward the fulfillment of your goals and dreams, you must realize that not every action will be perfect.

Not every action will produce the desired result. Not every action will work. Making mistakes, getting it almost right, and experimenting to see what happens are all part of the process of eventually getting it right.

If you're a car salesman, and someone says "This is a terrible car, I'm not buying it," it doesn't mean they hate you. They just don't like your product. I think that's a mistake a lot of people make.. they're so tied to their act that they take everything personally.

The really happy people are those who have broken the chains of procrastination, those who find satisfaction in doing the job at hand.

They're full of eagerness, zest and productivity.

The old saying that “success breeds success” has something to it.

It's that feeling of confidence, that can banish negativity and procrastination and get you going the right way...

Getting a Home Mortgage

So, you're interested to get a mortgage for your dream house. In order to do this, there are some steps you need to get the right home mortgage for you.

The initial step is to order your credit report from the country's three major credit reporting agencies which are Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. Your credit report is very important in your home mortgage because this determines your ability to pay off the home mortgage you are applying for. Your credit report reflects how up to date you are on paying your credits, your outstanding balance and the amount of money you still owe. A good standing on your credit report assures the lenders that their risk in investing with you will assure them that they will get their money back and assures you that your home mortgage loan gets approval.

In relation to this, financial experts recommend that it is wise for you to check the credit reports once you have them for errors before submitting these to lenders. The reason for this is that, these errors can cost you thousands of dollars more in interest or it could deny you the home mortgage you are applying for.

The second step in taking a home mortgage is to know the current home mortgage rates. Mortgage rates fluctuate and looking at certain economic key indicators such as bonds and Treasury notes can help you decide if it feasible to go for a home mortgage now and can help you get interest savings.

The third step in taking a home mortgage is to decide which mortgage program is best for you. There are so many kinds of programs and loans that are available. These include government loans and non-governmental loans called conventional loans. It is best to be educated and knowledgeable about all these home mortgage options in order to get the best for your situation. Some things that you need to consider when you're in this stage are:

  • the amount of money you have for down payment for your home-mortgage

  • the amount of monthly payment on your home mortgage you can afford without worry and with security

  • the number of years you plan to stay on the house or with the home-mortgage

  • the importance of paying off the home mortgage early

  • the ability and an objective to give extra principal payments and

  • your projection of your income's stability or its possibility to increase in order for you not to have difficulties in paying off your home mortgage in the future

These should all be considered because remember, a home-mortgage is a long period investment and requires huge amounts of money.

The fourth step is to check and compare interest rates among the various lenders. This is the most difficult part but this is where you can usually save off in interests when you are already in the middle of a home mortgage program. Be wary also of terms that different lending companies use that may be pointing to the same thing. Other companies might waive off some fees and then add another one, which might cost you more. Take time to know all the figures behind the names they use for the fees that they give.

The fifth step is to look at the whole home mortgage package. Aside from interests, you need to consider other factors in the package such as the type of mortgage, the type of down payment, the presence of prepayment penalties, lock-in period, mortgage insurance, payment schedule, and other features.

And lastly, when you have decided on the lender for your home mortgage, determine the required documents for your loan. These typically include a completely filled up Uniform Residential Loan Application and your credit report fee. Fees are usually collected when submitting home mortgage applications. Some of which are application fee and appraisal fee. Other requirements and fees needed to be paid for your home mortgage application may vary from one lending institution to another.

Effective SEO Techniques

Your primary aim for maintaining a blog is to make money, and for the long term success of your blog you need to focus on getting as many high ranking posts in the search engines as possible. To start out your blog will not have enough backlinks or page rank to help drive your posts into top ranking positions.

The trick is to target keyword phrases which have little competition in the search engines. One major drawback is these keywords are they are unlikely to attract much traffic, and so you have to concentrate on writing posts which target many different keyword phrases.

The single most important search-engine-optimization tip to employ when you are writing a blog post is to select a primary keyword phrase and then include as many related words and phrases as possible. Keyword density is not something you should concentrate on.

Rather than stuffing your post with your primary keyword phrase, use words which have the same meaning (known as synonyms) and add related phrases (or secondary keyword phrases). The days of creating one blog post for each keyword phrase are long gone. You can use the Word Tracker free trial to find keywords which you have researched (i.e. they are searched for regularly, but have little competition). Once you have identified suitable keywords, use the Google Keyword tool to find related phrases which Google associates with your main keywords. Enter your main keyword into the "Keyword Variations" text box.

Make sure the "Use synonyms" check box is checked and click "Get More Keywords". The Google Keywords tool will then return a list of keywords it thinks are related to your main keyword. Save these in either a text format or as a .csv file which you can open sing a spreadsheet (e.g. MS Excel).

Go through each keyword phrase and delete those that have no relevance to the blog post you intend to write. When you write your post include as many of these related keywords as you can, but make sure your post has a logical flow to it and your included phrases makes sense. You should write for your readers first - make your post content informative and easy to read. Include your primary keyword phrase in your post title, but make sure the post content closely matches your chosen title.

You should also include your primary keyword phrase once or twice in the post content, and include the related phrases you have identified, for example if your primary keyword phrase is "increase-website-traffic" and the Google Keywords tool returned these related phrases:

-improve website ranking
-top website traffic
-get website traffic
-targeted website traffic
-guaranteed website traffic
-your website traffic

Here is how you could use them in your post title:


In your post you would refer to all the keyword phrases once or twice and back them up with even more similar or related phrases, for example: website traffic -> website hits -> unique hits - > site traffic. Don't keep repeating the same phrase over and over in your post content.

If you have written other posts which targeted some of the related secondary phrases, link to them using the secondary keyword phrase as the link text. Linking to similarly themed posts benefits your readers because they can find more information, but it also gives your posts a slight SEO boost from the internal "in context" linking.

One very important point to remember is 30% to 40% of all search engine queries are one time long tail search phrases which the search engines do not have any matching webpages to display. The actual results displayed will be the webpages which the search engines decide are the closest match. When writing your posts take this into account and create as many permutations as you can of the keyword phrases you are targeting.
