Check out this cool list of great quotes and sayings about food and drink that have been designed specifically as desktop backgrounds and mobile wallpapers, so you can add ’em to your device to brighten up your day (simply click on the image to go to the download page).

If you’re like me then you love food; whether it’s enjoying a Sunday roast around a big fire on a cold winter’s day, or having a picnic on a green lawn in the shade of a big tree. And, of course, what would food be without drink? I’m not sure I could get through a full day’s work without my morning coffee.. oh yes, and the early afternoon booster cup too. Not to mention the occasional sneaky glass of vino in the evenings with dinner.

But food and drink isn’t only about sustenance. There’s a lot of humour and wisdom to be found in what you eat so have fun checking out these beautifully designed wallpapers and let me know if you’ve got other funny sayings about food so we can add ’em to this list.

Coffee; Chocolate; Men…

Coffee; chocolate; men. The richer the better.

Coffee, chocolate, men

    Prim and proper, but with a touch of devilish attitude. A great wallpaper for anyone who loves a touch of retro.

    Depresso…

    Depresso: That feeling you get when you’ve run out of coffee.

    Depresso; that feeling when you've run out of coffee

      Well, I guess this one goes without saying. As someone who runs out of coffee on a regular basis I like to keep a box of teabags handy – not quite the same thing but it’ll do in a pinch.

      Donut talk to me…

      Donut talk to me.

      Donut talk to me

        Of course, not; I’m busy eating my donut. Talk later.

        Not all girls are made of…

        Not all girls are made of sugar & spice and everything nice. Some girls are made of sarcasm and wine and everything fine.

        Not all girls are made of sugar and spice

          The trick is not to be completely made out of wine. Everything in moderation as they say.

          When life hands you lemons…

          When life hands you lemons grab the salt and tequila.

          When life hands you lemons

            I love this one. A good attitude can help you go far in this life. But go easy on the tequila.

            Tonight’s forecast…

            Tonight’s forecast: 99% chance of wine.

            99% chance of wine

              That’s been the forecast for quite some time now. Nothing like a relaxing glass of vino in the evenings.

              Women are like teabags…

              Women are like teabags. You never know how strong they are until you put them in hot water.

              Women are like teabags

                I’m not particularly surprised this saying comes from Eleanor Roosevelt. She’s right of course. But I guess this saying applies to anyone. We don’t really know our own strength until it’s really put to the test.

                Time to drink champagne…

                Time to drink champagne and dance on the table.

                Time to drink champagne

                  Ok, so not every saying has to be filled with deep meaning. Sometimes you just gotta let your hair down and have a good party with a couple of your best friends. No harm in having a bit of bubbly at the same time, right?

                  So that’s my list of favourite sayings. Hopefully I’ve managed to get a decent balance between funny and serious, deep and silly. There’s a world of great quotes out there to choose from, but these, for me, are the best and most attractive options for wallpapers on my PC.

                  What are your favourite quotes about food and drink (any drink, it doesn’t have to be about coffee or wine)? Share ’em in the comments and we’ll hopefully be able to convince the good people at Strange Fox to design a new bunch of free downloadable wallpapers.

                  5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

                  5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

                  Everyone experiences mental stress at one time or another. Maybe you’re starting a new career, job, or business, or you feel incredibly overwhelmed between work, parenting, and your love life (or a lack of it). It could even be that you simply feel that you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it,  plus, on top of everything, nothing seems to be going the way it should!

                  Yup, we all experience mental stress from time-to-time, and that’s okay as long as you have the tools, techniques and knowledge that allow you to fully relieve it once it comes.

                  Here are 5 tips for relieving mental stress when it comes so you can function at your best while feeling good (and doing well) in work, love, or life:

                  1. Get Rationally Optimistic

                  Mental stress starts with your perception of your experiences. For instance, most people get stressed out when they perceive their reality as “being wrong” in some way. Essentially, they have a set idea of how things “should be” at any given moment, and when reality ends up being different (not even necessarily bad), they get stressed.

                  Advertising

                  This process is simply a result of perception and can be easily “fixed” by recognizing that although life might not always be going as YOU think it should, it’s still going as it should—for your own benefit.

                  In fact, once you fully recognize that everything in your life ultimately happens for your own growth, progress, and development—so you can achieve your goals and dreams—your perception works in your favor. You soon process and respond to your experience of life differently, for your advantage. That’s the essence of becoming “rationally optimistic.”

                  The result: no more mental stress.

                  2. Unplug

                  Just like you might need to unplug your computer when it starts acting all crazy, you should also “unplug” your mind.

                  Advertising

                  How on earth do you unplug your mind? Simple: just meditate.

                  It isn’t nearly difficult or complicated as some people think, so, if you don’t already meditate, give it a try. Whether you meditate for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours, this is a surefire way to reduce mental stress.

                  Meditation has been scientifically proven to relax your body (resulting in less mental stress), while also reducing anxiety and high blood pressure.

                  3. Easy on the Caffeine

                  Yes, we know, we know—everyone loves a nice java buzz, and that’s okay, but there’s a fine line between a small caffeine pick-me-up and a racing heart and mind that throws you into a frenzy of mental stress.

                  Advertising

                  Try giving up caffeine for a while and see how you feel. And, if that’s completely out of the question for you, at least try to minimize it. You might find that lots of your mental stress mysteriously “disappears” as your caffeine intake goes down.

                  4. Attack Mental Stress Via the Back Door

                  That’s right: your body and mind are part of the whole being, and are constantly influencing and affecting each other. If you’re experiencing a lot of mental stress, try to reduce it by calming your body down—a calm body equals a calmer mind.

                  How do you calm your body down and reduce physical stress? A  great way to reduce physical stress (thereby reducing mental stress) is to take natural supplements that are proven to reduce stress and anxiety while lifting your mood. Three good ones to look into are kava-kava, St John’s wort, and rhodiola rosea:

                  • Kava-kava is a natural plant known to have mild sedative properties, and you should be able to find it at your natural health food store or vitamin store. It’s available in capsules or liquid extract form.
                  • St John’s wort is a natural flower used to treat depression. Again, it’s found at your local health store in capsules or liquid. Because it uplifts mood (enabling you to see the brighter side of all experiences) it helps relieve mental stress as well.
                  • Rhodiola rosea is a natural plant shown to reduce stress and uplift mood, and Russian athletes have been using it forever. Like the other two supplements mentioned, rhodiola rosea can be found at your natural health store in capsule or liquid form.

                  While these supplements are all natural and can be very helpful for most people, always check with your health care provider first as they can cause side-effects depending on your current health situation etc.

                  5. Good Old-Fashioned Exercise

                  This tip has been around forever because it works. Nothing relieves mental stress like running, kickboxing—you name it. Anything super-physical will wipe out most of your mental stresses once the exercise endorphins (happy chemicals) are released into your brain.

                  The result: mental stress will be gone!

                  So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain stressed, try using some of the above tips. You can even print this out or save it to refer to regularly.
