5 Things You Should Know – Part 51

Here are 5 more things you should know.

01. Spotify has much more than songs to offer

Spotify

It has audiobooks, stand-up comedy, meditation guides, and also historic speeches. Listening to Churchill is WAY better than reading it.

Other speeches worth noting are:

  • Bill Clinton
  • Ronald Reagan
  • Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Robert F. Kennedy
  • John F. Kennedy
  • Harry Truman and More…

02. If you can’t afford to bury or cremate a loved one…

Donating Body

There are services that will do it for free. In the past year I’ve lost both of my aunt and uncle to cancer. They weren’t well off financially and neither were my cousins. They couldn’t afford to bury them and cremation was even a bit pricy for them. Thankfully the hospice nurse made us aware of Life Legacy.

If you donate the body to science, Life Legacy will cremate and return the remains to you for free after a few weeks. There are some awkward questions when you call them, but generally it was a simple procedure to donate.

03. The warning signs of suicide

Warning Signs of Suicide

These are the five warning signs of suicide:

  • Talking about feeling trapped.
  • Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs.
  • Withdrawing or feeling isolated.
  • Displaying extreme mood swings.
  • Showing rage of talking about seeking revenge.

Warning signs of imminent suicide would be:

  • Significant mood change to being happy – indicative that the individual has made a plan to kill his/herself and is happy to have the end in sight.
  • Giving things away and getting accounts in order – individual wants to give away valued possessions to those that will want/use them and gets everything settled so there’s not a mess of paperwork to be cleaned up once they’ve gone.

04. How to walk on ice

How to walk on Ice

Wrong Way:

  • Normally, when we walk, our legs’ ability to support our weight is split mid-stride.
  • Walking this way on ice forces each leg to support the weight of the body at an angle that is not perpendicular to the surface of the ice, resulting in a nasty fall.

Right Way:

  • To walk on ice, keep your center of gravity over the front leg. (third image above)
  • One animal that has figured this out is a penguin. Think about yourself as a penguin and you’ll be alright.
