Candy: Secret Key of Happiness to Unlock Anyone’s Mood

Though candies are a thing of the past, as children nowadays tend to procure pokemons rather than get the taste of delicious candies, still they are a treat which no one can resist! Contrary to the belief that candy might be harmful due to its high sugar content, it has benefits which no advertisement can sufficiently make you understand.

Once you pop a candy into your mouth, you might get a high, which leads to that transient happiness you won’t get from a cigarette or a pokemon! Let’s dissect the benefits of candy thoroughly before you do enjoy a piece!

    Sugar is the perfect interlude for the brackish taste of monotonous life, and it is the chief ingredient of candy! So, get the good vibrations through your taste buds and make life happier with a simple candy. Don’t hesitate to get your blood sugar level high, as we are continuously creating memories, so let them be good ones.

    The Science Behind High Sugar Level

    The scientific benefits of increasing your blood sugar level through a candy are sanguine in the sense that all of the outcomes are beneficial. Nothing bad ever happens from a sugary substance which increases your dopamine level while releasing endogenous opioids. So, you will never feel depressed, or get a heart attack, so to speak!

    Psychological Benefits

    Candy acts as a stimulant like caffeine as it contains theobromine which affects the central nervous system mildly which acts as a catalyst to your energy level. Thus you can not only think faster but act sharper because of the amino acids which stimulate your neurotransmitters. The benefits aren’t just psychological. There are amazing benefits which you can derive from a simple candy. A candy not only affects your psyche in a positive manner, but also keeps you healthy in ways you cannot imagine!

    Improve Your Cognitive Functioning

    We are lost in a technocratic maze where our cognitive functions are never working properly as the faculties of our mind are inhibited by several reasons like work or peer pressure. But a candy can alleviate that situation by simply improving your cognitive faculties as it rejuvenates your bloodstream with a sugary antidote.

    Boost Your Energy and Mood

    Just as I mentioned earlier, your energy levels will never fluctuate if you have a candy in your mouth. And sometimes we complain about our mood, especially when it turns for the worse. Just take a candy basket delivery whenever you feel low or tired and all your problems will find their own sweet solutions while you will never be caught in a bad mood.

    Increase and Restore Your Willpower

    People often say that they are suffering from a lack of will. Well, candy lovers never face that problem as a matter of fact as candy can sustain your willpower till all you will is eat some more candy! Yes, truly you don’t need anyone to praise you or flatter you or appreciate your hard work. You can really get back your lost self-esteem or your crushed willpower by taking a candy.

    It might be unbelievable at first, but heed my words because I won’t say again that candy can give you that high which you always desire but ignore obliviously. Just pop a candy and you will be self-sufficient.

    Live Longer

      Everyone secretly wants to be immortal, but even if we can’t be so, we can extend our tenure on earth unbelievably by taking some candies! Even if you indulge in a candy once a day or even once in a week, you have extended your lifespan a little in comparison to someone who doesn’t take candy. I am not misleading you but telling you a fact from a report on candy consumers produced by the researchers at Harvard School of Public Health.

      Improves Mental Health

      In this modern decadent world where most us are running after time or money or lost love, we have lost ourselves. In other words, we have forgotten how to live. And all this have taken a toll on our mental health thus depriving us of our normal abilities to perform or to think positively. Most of us are knowingly or unknowingly suffering from bouts of depression. I might sound banal but still, you can escape from all that with just a mere candy.

      Cotton Candy Helps Create New Blood Vessels

      Again, I am not bluffing but according to an analysis from Cornell University, cotton candy is really a lifesaver as it can create new blood vessels which very few things in this world can. Perhaps even your staple diet which must consist of either wheat or rice can’t do!

      Last but not the least, I will urge you to now order for a basketful of candy and check the aforementioned benefits for yourself. I believe the candy basket delivery will reach you soon and you can thank me later! Enjoy the secret key of happiness.

      The Pros and Cons of Working from Home

      The Pros and Cons of Working from Home

      At the start of the year, if you had asked anyone if they could do their work from home, many would have said no. They would have cited the need for team meetings, a place to be able to sit down and get on with their work, the camaraderie of the office, and being able to meet customers and clients face to face.

      Almost ten months later, most of us have learned that we can do our work from home and in many ways, we have discovered working from home is a lot better than doing our work in a busy, bustling office environment where we are inundated with distractions and noise.

      One of the things the 2020 pandemic has reminded us is we humans are incredibly adaptable. It is one of the strengths of our kind. Yet we have been unknowingly practicing this for years. When we move house we go through enormous upheaval.

      When we change jobs, we not only change our work environment but we also change the surrounding people. Humans are adaptable and this adaptability gives us strength.

      So, what are the pros and cons of working from home? Below I will share some things I have discovered since I made the change to being predominantly a person who works from home.

      Pro #1: A More Relaxed Start to the Day

      This one I love. When I had to be at a place of work in the past, I would always set my alarm to give me just enough time to make coffee, take a shower, and change. Mornings always felt like a rush.

      Now, I can wake up a little later, make coffee and instead of rushing to get out of the door at a specific time, I can spend ten minutes writing in my journal, reviewing my plan for the day, and start the day in a more relaxed frame of mind.

      When you start the day in a relaxed state, you begin more positively. You find you have more clarity and more focus and you are not wasting energy worrying about whether you will be late.

      Pro #2: More Quiet, Focused Time = Increased Productivity

      One of the biggest difficulties of working in an office is the noise and distractions. If a colleague or boss can see you sat at your desk, you are more approachable. It is easier for them to ask you questions or engage you in meaningless conversations.

      Working from home allows you to shut the door and get on with an hour or two of quiet focused work. If you close down your Slack and Email, you avoid the risk of being disturbed and it is amazing how much work you can get done.

      An experiment conducted in 2012 found that working from home increased a person’s productivity by 13%, and more recent studies also find significant increases in productivity.[1]

      When our productivity increases, the amount of time we need to perform our work decreases, and this means we can spend more time on activities that can bring us closer to our family and friends as well as improve our mental health.

      Pro #3: More Control Over Your Day

      Without bosses and colleagues watching over us all day, we have a lot more control over what we do. While some work will inevitably be more urgent than others, we still get a lot more choice about what we work on.

      We also get more control over where we work. I remember when working in an office, we were given a fixed workstation. Some of these workstations were pleasant with a lot of natural sunlight, but other areas were less pleasant. It was often the luck of the draw whether we find ourselves in a good place to work or not.

      By working from home we can choose what work to work on and whether we want to face a window or not. We can get up and move to another place, and we can move from room to room. And if you have a garden, on nice days you could spend a few hours working outside.

      Pro #4: You Get to Choose Your Office Environment

      While many companies will provide you with a laptop or other equipment to do your work, others will give you an allowance to purchase your equipment. But with furniture such as your chair and desk, you have a lot of freedom.

      I have seen a lot of amazing home working spaces with wonderful sets up—better chairs, laptop stands that make working from a laptop much more ergonomic and therefore, better for your neck.

      You can also choose your wall art and the little nick-nacks on your desk or table. With all this freedom, you can create a very personal and excellent working environment that is a pleasure to work in. When you are happy doing your work, you will inevitably do better work.

      Con #1: We Move a Lot Less

      When we commute to a place of work, there is movement involved. Many people commute using public transport, which means walking to the bus stop or train station. Then, there is the movement at lunchtime when we go out to buy our lunch. Working in a place of work requires us to move more.

      Unfortunately, working from home naturally causes us to move less and this means we are not burning as many calories as we need to.

      Moving is essential to our health and if you are working from home you need to become much more aware of your movement. To ensure you are moving enough, make sure you take your lunch breaks. Get up from your desk and move. Go outside, if you can, and take a walk. And, of course, refrain from regular trips to the refrigerator.

      Con #2: Less Human Interaction

      One of the nicest things about bringing a group of people together to work is the camaraderie and relationships that are built over time. Working from home takes us away from that human interaction and for many, this can cause a feeling of loss.

      Humans are a social species—we need to be with other people. Without that connection, we start to feel lonely and that can lead to mental health issues.

      Zoom and Microsoft Teams meeting cannot replace that interaction. Often, the interactions we get at our workplaces are spontaneous. But with video calls, there is nothing spontaneous—most of these calls are prearranged and that’s not spontaneous.

      This lack of spontaneous interaction can also reduce a team’s ability to develop creative solutions—there’s just something about a group of incredibly creative people coming together in a room to thrash out ideas together that lends itself to creativity.

      While video calls can be useful, they don’t match the connection between a group of people working on a solution together.

      Con #3: The Cost of Buying Home Office Equipment

      Not all companies are going to provide you with a nice allowance to buy expensive home office equipment. 100% remote companies such as Doist (the creators of Todoist and Twist) provide a $2,000 allowance to all their staff every two years to buy office equipment. Others are not so generous.

      This can prove to be expensive for many people to create their ideal work-from-home workspace. Many people must make do with what they already have, and that could mean unsuitable chairs that damage backs and necks.

      Advertising

      For a future that will likely involve more flexible working arrangements, companies will need to support their staff in ways that will add additional costs to an already reduced bottom line.

      Con #4: Unique Distractions

      Not all people have the benefit of being able to afford childcare for young children, and this means they need to balance working and taking care of their kids.

      For many parents, being able to go to a workplace gives them time away from the noise and demands of a young family, so they could get on with their work. Working from home removes this and can make doing video calls almost impossible.

      To overcome this, where possible, you need to set some boundaries. I know this is not always possible, but it is something you need to try. You should do whatever you can to make sure you have some boundaries between your work life and home life.

      Final Thoughts

      Working from home can be hugely beneficial for many people, but it can also bring serious challenges to others.

      We are moving towards a new way of working. Therefore, companies need to look at both the pros and cons of working from home and be prepared to support their staff in making this transition. It will not be impossible, but a lot of thought will need to go into it.
