9 Reasons Why You Should Get An Oven

9 Reasons Why You Should Get An Oven

An oven makes life easier. However, you might be surprised to learn that not too many people have one at home. Many people consider an oven to carry out one function only: baking!

Ovens have the ability to do much more than simply that. The earliest ovens were found in Central Europe and date back to 29,000 BC. Here are some reasons why you should consider getting an oven if you don’t own one already.

1. You’ll discover their multifunctional abilities

Why should you get an oven? Well, they have various functions that they can carry out! Cooking, baking, or roasting — you name it! The oven can do all that and much more for you and your family. Personally, baking potatoes is one of my favorites. Getting the golden outside crispy, with a nice side of mustard, ketchup, and mayonnaise — it really hits the spot!

2. You’ll find everything is easier

Life basically gets easier with an oven. You get to wash less dishes, as you put everything in one dish and wait for your meal to cook. Trust me — I like getting things done easily! An oven will make your life so much easier because less dishes equals less work and less time spent hogging over the sink to wash or scrub them until they’re clean.

3. You’ll get into baking

This is a no-brainer — baking is a wonderful activity to do with an oven. Making cakes, brownies, or pies is amazingly easy using an oven. You mix your batter, preheat your oven to 375 degrees, and you are on the way to an incredible and delectable dessert that will leave you licking your fingers for some more!

4. You’ll find a design you love

Modern ovens are coming and they look incredible and stylish as ever! Today’s latest innovations and designs are to die for. Ovens are now coming in all kinds of colors, shapes, and sizes. There is a design to suit anyone’s preference.

5. You’ll keep up with the trend

You don’t want to be that lone wolf that doesn’t have what everyone already has in their own homes, do you? Well then, you should probably get an oven.

It’s not about copying or imitating others to “fit in,” it is about not getting left behind when everyone is moving forward. Priority is to stay in the game, and not to look like you are “backwards,” or anything.

6. You’ll want to cook or bake new dishes to please the whole family

Cooking and baking can be wonderful experiences. They allow you to unfold and help you relax and forget about any stress that is currently in your life. An oven gives you the ease to cook or bake what you want, and gives you the opportunity to experience and come up with new dishes. This will surely make your family members happy! So, go ahead and get that oven you have been wanting.

7. You’ll constantly impress your guests

An oven can say a lot about you, about your family, and about the importance of cooking/baking/serving dishes that you hold. Food is energy. Food is life! Why not represent your love for food with a modern-looking oven?

8. You’ll have more space

An oven is definitely a space-saving tool. It can be a compact cooking device that comes in a range of sizes.

9. You’ll get your money’s worth

Ovens are definitely unique and versatile tools and mechanisms. All sorts of foods can be made in ovens and they will last for a very long time. Once you spend a good deal of money on an oven, you will get your bang for your buck! You will not have to keep on spending money on it. The only maintenance is a little cleaning once in a while. Your job is done!

I hope this makes you want to buy an oven! You will surely be delighted — I guarantee it!

10 Powerful Ways to Stop Worrying and Start Living Today

10 Powerful Ways to Stop Worrying and Start Living Today

Plato knew that the body and mind are intimately linked. And in the late 1800s, the Mayo brothers, famous physicians, estimated that over half of all hospital beds are filled with people suffering from frustration, anxiety, worry and despair. Causes of worry are everywhere, in our relationships and our jobs, so it’s key we find ways to take charge of the stress.

In his classic book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, Dale Carnegie offers tools to ditch excessive worrying that help you make a worry-free environment for your private and professional life.

These are the top 10 tips to grab worry by the horns and wrestle it to the ground:

1. Make Your Decision and Never Look Back

Have you ever made a decision in life only to second-guess it afterwards? Of course you have! It’s hard not to wonder whether you’ve done the right thing and whether there might still be time to take another path.

But keep this in mind: you’ve already made your decision, so act decisively on it and dismiss all your anxiety about it.

Don’t stop to hesitate, to reconsider, or to retrace your steps. Once you’ve chosen a course of action, stick to it and never waver.

2. Live for Today, Package Things up in “Day-Tight Compartments”

You know that feeling: tossing, turning and worrying over something that happened or something that might, well into the wee hours. To avoid this pointless worrying, you need “day-tight compartments”. Much as a ship has different watertight compartments, your own “day-tight” ones are a way to limit your attention to the present day.

The rule is simple: whatever happened in the past or might happen in the future must not intrude upon today. Everything else has to wait its turn for tomorrow’s box or stay stuck in the past.

3. Embrace the Worst-Case Scenario and Strategize to Offset It

If you’re worried about something, ask yourself: “What’s the worst thing that could happen?” Could you lose your job? Be jailed? Get killed?

Whatever the “worst” might be, it’s probably not so world-ending. You could probably even bounce back from it!

If, for example, you lose your job, you could always find another. Once you accept the worst-case scenario and get thinking about contingency plans, you’ll feel calmer.

4. Put a Lid on Your Worrying

Sometimes we stress endlessly about negative experiences when just walking away from them would serve us far better.

To make squashing that worry easier, try this strategy, straight from stock traders: it’s called the “stop-loss” order, where shares are bought at a certain price, and then their price development is observed. If things go badly and the share price hits a certain point, they are sold off immediately. This stops the loss from increasing further.

In the same manner, you can put a stop-loss order on things that cause you stress and grief.

5. Fake It ‘Til You Make It – Happiness, That Is

We can’t directly influence how we feel, but we can nudge ourselves to change through how we think and act.

If you’re feeling sad or low, slap a big grin on your face and whistle a chipper tune. You’ll find it impossible to be blue when acting cheerful. But you don’t necessarily need to act outwardly happy; you can simply think happier thoughts instead.

Marcus Aurelius summed it up aptly:

“Our life is what our thoughts make it.”

6. Give for the Joy of Giving

When we perform acts of kindness, we often do so with the expectation of gratitude. But harboring such expectations will probably leave you disappointed.

One person well aware of this fact was the lawyer Samuel Leibowitz. Over the course of his career, Leibowitz saved 78 people from going to the electric chair. Guess how many thanked him? None.

So stop expecting gratitude when you’re kind to someone. Instead, take joy from the act yourself.

7. Dump Envy – Enjoy Being Uniquely You

Your genes are completely unique. Even if someone had the same parents as you, the likelihood of someone identical to you being born is just one in 300,000 billion.

Despite this amazing fact, many of us long to be someone else, thinking the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. But living your life this way is pointless. Embrace your uniqueness and get comfortable with who you really are: How to Be True to Yourself and Live the Life You Want

8. Haters Will Hate — It Just Means You’re Doing It Right

When you’re criticized, it often means you’re accomplishing something noteworthy. In fact, let’s take it a step further and consider this: the more you’re criticized, the more influential and important a person you likely are.

So the next time somebody talks you down, don’t let it get to you. Take it as a compliment!

9. Chill Out! Learn to Rest Before You Get Tired

Scientists agree that emotions are the most common cause of fatigue. And it works the other way around, too: fatigue produces more worries and negative emotions.

It should be clear, therefore, that you’ve got to relax regularly before you feel tired. Otherwise, worries and fatigue will accumulate on top of each other.

It’s impossible to worry when you are relaxed, and regular rest helps you maintain your ability to work effectively.

10. Get Organized and Enjoy Your Work

There are few greater sources of misery in life than having to work, day in, day out, in a job you despise. It would make sense then that you shouldn’t pick a job you hate, or even just dislike doing.

But say you already have a job. How can you make it more enjoyable and worry-free? One way is to stay organized: a desk full of unanswered mails and memos is sure to breed worries.
