You’ll Be Amazed By These Interesting Research Results About Men And Women

You’ll Be Amazed By These Interesting Research Results About Men And Women

Differences in Men and Women

    Author John Gray famously scribed the relationship handbook of the ’90s titled Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. You don’t have to read beyond the title to discern that this book is geared to nitpick the distinct differences between men and women. The infographic above is a perfect example of the many dissimilarities between the two sexes. It’s not fair to pick or pinpoint one particular facet of this intricate thing we call life to further illustrate these differences. Perhaps it’s more fair to boil the major differences down to two things: poor communication and insecurity.

    No matter how good you think you are at communicating with the opposite sex, or the sex you’re attracted to, you could be a lot better. And no matter how confident you might feel day-to-day, there’s always something that makes you feel insignificant, little, or worthless. A good handful of the points above like flirting detection, rebound sex, drinking to forget relationship woes, and stranger attractiveness all result from some form of insecurity or internal miscommunication. Mostly all of which can be combated with better forms of verbal communication, even if it is a little awkward. I understand that talking with Sally after she ripped out your heart and put it on a dinner plate next to her signature Cesar salad might not sound ideal, but it’s necessary for coping and closure. Sadly, there isn’t just a magical pill that will make us forget all our troubles and worries when it comes to the opposite sex.

    Women and men have eons of differences, but we often complicate things unconsciously. It won’t be easy to close the gap between the sexes, but maybe it’s better to have the separation. Variety and difference makes us unmistakably individual and less like Timmy Turner’s dumb wish that everyone looked the same. Celebrate these differences with the wisdom that, yes, men and women are different and, yes, we could all benefit from being a little more in check with our egos and clearer with our means of communication.

    10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

    Positive thinking can lead to a lot of positive change in your life. Developing an optimistic outlook can be good for both your physical and mental health.

    But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

    Here are 10 ways to make thinking positive thoughts easy:

    1. Spend Time with Positive People

    If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

    Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

    2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

    When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

    Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

    3. Contribute to the Community

    One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

    Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

    4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

    Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

    Some recommendations for you:

    5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

    You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

    If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

    There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

    6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

    It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

    Learn to set SMART goals to help you achieve more.

    7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

    Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

    Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

    8. Offer Compliments to Others

    Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

    If you start keeping a daily gratitude list, you’ll start noticing exactly how much you have to be thankful for. This can help you focus on the positive in your life instead of thinking about all the bad things that have happened in the day.

    Getting in the habit of showing an attitude of gratitude makes positive thinking more of a habit. Here’re 40 Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude.

    10. Practice Self-Care

    Take good care of yourself and you’ll be more equipped to think positively.

    Get plenty of rest and exercise and practice managing your stress well. Taking care of your physical and mental health will provide you with more energy to focus on positive thinking.
