These 10 Genius Cats Will Inspire You

These 10 Genius Cats Will Inspire You

As any cat person will tell you, cats are more of an independent family member than a pet. They are cunning, light on their feet, and although they can make some incredibly stupid choices and make a fool of themselves, some of them are true geniuses that we can learn a thing or two from. Whether you are a cat person or not, these kitties will definitely make your day and inspire you too.

1. Faucet kitty

Despite what some people say, cats are not always the evil geniuses we’d like to believe. But they can be darn funny when they want to. At least it understands the importance of moisturizing your fur.

2. Hypno kitty

Cat and dog friendships can sometimes be real. Just try and remember, when did someone give you this heartfelt massage? Or it could be brainwashing the dog – who can tell?

3. Jumping kitty

A deadly predator in the night, eons and eons of evolution have lead to…this? It makes the same mistake, not once but twice,expecting different results – so they might not be so different from humans after all.

4. Roaring kitty

This is not a cat video, this is a test whether you are human or not. This kitten can awaken motherly instincts even in Arnold Schwarzenegger (I just now realized how complicated his name actually is). Please do not try and hug or pet the screen, as we will not be responsible for any damage that occurs.

5. Snuggle kitty

Looking at this video more carefully, I am not sure whether the cat is in love with this chihuahua, or just trying to eat it. Who knows what happens when the camera turns off? The dog is confused to say the least.

6. Mirror kitty

Despite common belief, cats also like dancing naked in front of mirrors, like some humans. Or so I’ve heard. It’s either this, or it’s preparing for a charade championship.

7. Cannonball kitty

Hey, let’s be honest, this must be a lot harder than it actually looks. The reason behind this behaviour remains a mystery. Like most things that cats do. Five points for agility, but -10 for intellect.

8. Snowy kitty

When someone tells you that cats are evil masterminds who are controlling us, just show them this video. It is obvious that something this cute and clumsy cannot be evil. Or this can also be a part of their plan. My cat is sitting next to my laptop, judging my laughter and thinking of suitable ways I should be punished. It’s probably going to pee in my shoes again. No, Mr. Fluffles, no!

9. Ninja kitty

I am just interested to see what happens when cats find out that snow is actually water. This cat is actually quite good at digging snow, which could be useful if they weren’t so lazy.

10. High five kitty

I had troubles potty training my own kid  and this cat learns to do this? They might be evil masterminds after all.

I think that this is more than enough proof that our furry little friends are genius minds who like to play the fool to make us lower our guard, clever minds on par with Detective Colombo, or are they perhaps incompetent goofballs who luck their way through life like Jacques Closeau in Pink Panther? It’s probably just best to play it safe and keep them happy.

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.

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.

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.

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.
