The Scenic Route to a Longer Life [infographic]

After reading this infographic, it seemed to me that all of the suggested methods to promote one’s longevity had a common theme: enjoying yourself. Among those included were such indulgences as chocolate, drinking, owning a pet, and simply thinking happy thoughts.

The secret is wonderfully simple. Just enjoy yourself. Of course, if you are unhappy and all of your energy is expended on something you don’t enjoy or something that ultimately creates more stress than pleasure, your immune system is going to suffer.

The power with which your body can fight off illness is directly related to the level of stress in your life. The more panicked you are in your everyday life, the more energy your body expends being stressed, and conversely, the less energy you have to fight off illnesses.

Another very simple way to maintain longevity is to keep nature as a constant in your life. Keeping plants in your living space relieves air pollution and pumps your environment with fresh oxygen. Living in rural areas, close to wilderness also correlates to a longer life.

Wanna live past 100? Try keeping it simple, and living in harmony with your environment. (via)

Marijuana and your Brain [infographic]

Marijuana. Legalize it or not? That’s the question many states are debating; whether to legalize the recreational or medical use of Mary Jane. The arguments that marijuana is an addictive substance and can act as a gateway to harder drugs are top reasons why legalization probably hasn’t happened yet.

I honestly have mixed feelings about the topic. I just can’t seem to commit to a concrete stance on my option on the legalization of marijuana.  It would be a strange to imagine a world where marijuana was de-criminalized. I seriously cannot put a picture to it. Although, I feel like life would be so much more simple and just.

A good way to begin picturing a world with legalized marijuana would be to learn how weed affects the brain. Today’s infographic color codes the brain as it is affected by the substance. It seems that most areas of the brain affected only produces positive effects from weed. From curing pain to reducing nausea, weed seems to offer more perks than what most people would think. Although increased appetite might be a negative effect for those who are trying to lose some extra weight for spring break.

So there ya go, a small peak at which parts of the brain weed affects. Go out and spread the word so maybe you can help someone else gain better insight to the positive and negative affects of marijuana. [via]

Hacker groups are becoming a more common sight in news headlines recently. Some of these groups claim to help society with their hacking, but too many use their skills for crime. Thousands of people have their identity stolen every year, and hacking is one of the best ways to find out private information.
