Waking up is hard. Nothing is nicer than sleeping in. Getting that extra hour of sleep can make all the difference. But there are other things, possibly important things that could be accomplished while you are getting a little more sleep. The benefits of waking up earlier are great. You can get that work out in. You can get to the bagel shop before breakfast rush comes in. You would have more time to prepare yourself for the day to come.
Taking time to be more proactive in the morning is what everyone should do at least once or twice a week. Getting up before most people are awake would give you a quiet time to get all your ducks in a row and a time to plan things out thoroughly. If you get to the gym early, you’ll practically have the whole place to yourself. Exercise and going to sleep early will grant you more motivation and energy throughout your day.
This infographic displays a few high profile business leaders that get their day started early. Chances are the majority of us may not ever become the CEO of a company. One thing for sure is that many of us can definitely utilize time more wisely in order to be better and more successful. Success comes to those who have the will to seek it. Take charge of the morning and get your worms, Early Bird! [via]

Hello Internet! I have not properly introduced myself yet. My name is Stewart Cowan. By day, I’m your average college student majoring in Pre-Law Philosophy with a minor in German, but by night, I am a lurker of dark alleys, seeking out justice where evil reigns, and driving my chainsaw of morality into the hearts of the wicked. And on Saturdays, I’m your friendly neighborhood writer. Pleased to meet you.
Whether it’s green, black, white, or oolong , a steamy cup o’ tea should be in your hands at all times. From chamomile to rooibos, the endless entourage of healthy and heartwarming teas can make you a superhuman. Literally. Check this infographic out.
If you enjoy tobacco smoke yet hate the idea of a suffocating death by the vicious lung cancer as much as I do, then just drink some black tea. It apparently protects your lungs. That way, you can enjoy your cigarette without having to live in the haunting shadow of your prolonged suicide.
Also, if the witch of indigestion should curse your bowels something mighty; just mix up a chaga or pu-erh potion. Problem solved. Curse removed.
If you just want to be an all around, all-american, disease ridden, cancer tolerant badass, drink some white tea. If ever there was a key to immortality, white tea would be a front runner. This stuff lowers blood pressure, protects your body against cancer, boosts the immune system, and to top it all off, leaves you with whiter teeth and fresh breath.
And so, internet, it was a pleasure to meet you. Keep on sippin’. [via]

Soup is about as diverse a food as you get. Hot or cold, spicy or mild, vegan, or filled with meat, soup can appeal to everyone. Soup can have a very high price, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the most expensive bowl of soup the market today is served at Kai Mayfair restaurant in London, UK. This soup is called Buddha Jumps Over the Wall and contains shark’s fin, abalone, Japanese flower mushroom, sea cucumber, dried scallops, chicken, huan ham, pork and ginseng. This dish even has to be pre-ordered 5 days in advance, because it is so intense. Otherwise soup can be very cheap, and easily made in bulk to feed numerous people in Soup Kitchens.
As a matter of fact, I am hosting my own soup kitchen tonight. I spent $30 on 3 large pots of delicious soup. Unfortunately this kitchen was advertised to the party hungry college students of San Marcos, TX and not the poor who really need it. We will be feeding these hooligans hunger with both an amazing “The Great Depression” themed party, and with the following glorious soups Tortilla soup, AMAZING Black bean and sweet potato soup, and SPICY lentil soup . Please readers, if you find yourself hungry for company or soup in San Marcos, TX today shoot me a message on Facebook and I’ll tell you where to get some “Bomb Ass Soup”.Share This Infographic
I remember getting a rubik’s cube for my twelfth birthday. I wanted one SO badly, so you could imagine my excitement when I received it as a gift from my grandma. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that the rubik’s cube was a puzzle and was actually extremely difficult to solve. I spent about 2 days messing with it before I finally gave up. About half a year later, I decided I wanted to try and figure it out again (after looking up the puzzle answer of course) only to find that my brother had peeled off and relocated all of the stickers to “solve” the puzzle.
Today’s infographic is especially interesting because not only does it tell you how to solve it, but it also gives some really interesting information about the history of the Rubik’s cube, and the cult following that it has. Check it out to solve your Rubik’s cube and show off to your friends. [via]

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Whether you’re trying to gain weight or lose some, starting the day with a healthy serving of protein, fiber and vitamins will supply your body with much needed nutrients. If you’re a part of the fifty percent of Americans who start their day with cereal, switching to a more healthy brand can be the easiest way to start a diet.
“These facts aren’t crazy!” – You.
I know, and I hope my dismal design skills don’t burn your eyes either. Today’s infographic was designed by me for my marketing class. If you couldn’t guess we’re selling Special K for men – or what we call 10K. 10K is Special K’s brother cereal with the same healthy formula of Special K, but with 5 times the original amount of protein per serving. I know I’ve lied to you about 10K being real, but at least the facts on the infographic are true!Share This Infographic
