DealDash Helps You Overcome Failures

dealdash failures

Having failures in your life is just part of being human. How you overcome those failures can make a real difference. Let DealDash help.

When is the last time that you had a failure in life? Maybe it was not getting that job that you wanted, or perhaps making a mistake that cost you a friendship. You could just give up when you have a failure, or you can get right up, brush yourself off, and try again. Let DedalDash give you some tips on how to overcome your failures.

Get Emotional

Many adults are told to not express their emotions, to keep everything bottled up inside. However, the first step in overcoming your failures is to examine your emotions. Take some time to yourself and think about your emotions regarding your failure. These emotions might include anger, sadness, fear, or shame. Thinking about these emotions will enable you to work through your feelings without turning it inward on yourself or outward onto others.

Positive Thinking

Once you have examined your emotions regarding your failure, try to move on. Attempt to banish any more negative thoughts and feelings about the failure. With failure often comes the tendency to beat yourself up over it, but when those negative thoughts creep in try and replace them with positive or hopeful thoughts instead. Instead of thinking “I didn’t get that great job, I’ll never get a better job, why bother trying?” try to think positively. “Maybe I didn’t get that great job, but there are plenty of other choices out there. Let me see what other jobs I can send my resume in to today.”

Set Goals

Finally, the best way to overcome a failure is to set some positive and achievable goals that you can work towards completing. Start brainstorming and make a list of some goals that you can work on that will ultimately benefit you long-term.

For example, if getting a better job is your end goal, set some smaller goals that are more easily achieved such as working on your interview skills and sprucing up your resume. With each small goal that you meet it will strengthen your confidence and take you that much closer to your end goal.

DealDash Watches the Stars

Astronomy is a fascinating hobby and is great for all ages. Let DealDash help get you starting in your stargazing.

One of the most interesting things about backyard astronomy is you don’t really need anything to get started. Of course, you will be able to see more things and probably enjoy it more with a telescope or even binoculars, However, all you really need to do to get started in backyard astronomy is to look up into the night sky. Let DealDash help!

Backyard Astronomy is Great for Families

Kids of all ages can join you in your new backyard astronomy hobby. I personally remember when I was a child my parents bought an inexpensive telescope and we spent many happy hours gazing into the sky in the evenings before bedtime. Happy memories, those.

What will you need for a little backyard astronomy with the family? Not much! If you are planning on watching the stars in the summer, a blanket that’s large enough for everyone to sit on is great, or perhaps you could each use your beach towels for personal star-gazing space. You’ll also want to be sure to spray yourselves with bug spray, there’s nothing worse than getting an armful of mosquito bites after an evening of stargazing.

Constellations Not Necessary

Learning some of the easier constellations such as the Big and Little Dipper is nice to do, but if you have smaller kids that might be a little too tricky for them. Why not make up a game instead, like “connect the dots” using the brightest stars? You can also have them make up their own constellations, that’s what people did in the past, and those are the constellations we see today.

Look for Shooting Stars

Looking for shooting stars is also a very fun astronomy activity. Interestingly enough, shooting stars really aren’t stars. They are actually just tiny dust particles falling through our atmosphere and they vaporize due to the heat of friction with the atmospheric gasses. Don’t tell the kids that, though! The concept of shooting stars is much more fun, and who wants to make a wish on a tiny dust particle, anyway?

DealDash Encourages New Hobbies

DealDash Hobbies

Hobbies are a great stress-reliever and can help you feel more positive about the rest of your life. Let DealDash help you explore some options.

You might already have a hobby or two that you enjoy, such as bidding on DealDash. However, expanding your horizons, learning new things, and doing things differently can help your brain stay young. Here are some tips and ideas from DealDash to help you explore some new hobbies in your spare time.

How Do I Find a New Hobby?

Firstly, I realize that finding a new hobby, especially if you’re an older person, can seem a little daunting. However, finding a new hobby doesn’t have to be difficult.

To find a new hobby, why not look around you, and see what hobbies you have right now. If you already have a hobby that you enjoy, why not expand on it? For example, if you like scrapbooking, why not pick up a camera and try your hand at photography? Once you have learned how to take great pictures you can use them in your scrapbooks. Or if you currently enjoy tennis as a hobby, why not take up golf as well?

If You Don’t Have Any Current Hobbies…

If you don’t have any current hobbies that you can expand on, why not go to the non-fiction section at the bookstore and see what peaks your interest? Maybe the cookbooks interest you, or perhaps woodworking, or even war history. No matter what non-fiction book you’re drawn to there is a hobby that will complement it.

Let Yourself Explore the Options

Lastly, if you pick up a new hobby that turns out to be a dud, don’t worry about it. Give it an honest chance, but if after a few weeks you’re not enjoying it at all feel free to move on to something else. Now, that’s not to say you should give up on something just because you’re not good at it right away, but if your new hobby doesn’t give you any joy then choose something else with a clear conscience.

DealDash Likes Healthy Kale

DealDash kale

Have you jumped on the kale bandwagon yet? If not, you should! Kale is healthy and delicious. Let DelDash tell you about kale.

Have you learned about the excellent health and nutritional benefits of kale for you and your family? If you haven’t been introduced yet to the “Wonderful World of Kale,” you will be interested to know that kale is nutritious and delicious for any meal of the day, even breakfast. Yes, breakfast, really! Here are some fun kale facts from DealDash to chew on.

 Kale is Good for Athletes

First, if you like to play basketball, you will be thrilled to hear that researchers have found that if you eat kale at least 3 times per week, you’ll be able to increase your aerial gains by an average of about 7.3 inches. As a result, you will be jumping like a pro in no time. Isn’t that amazing? If your children agree to try kale for breakfast, try blending them up a delicious green smoothie.

Kale is Good for Your Brain

Next, when you’re trying to convince your kids that eating kale is awesome, you might be able to convince them to eat a yummy kale and egg breakfast by telling them that they can improve their memory and concentration by simply incorporating kale into breakfast every morning. This means better grades and happier parents.
Also, it’s interesting to note that Kale has a lot of protein for a leafy green. In addition to the protein, kale is packed with iron, folate, and vitamin B6. These are all vital nutrients that are needed to make brain molecules like serotonin and dopamine.

Delicious

Finally, since we have established that kale is a healthy superfood, it will be nice to hear that kale is also delicious and can be incorporated into many delightful meals. Many people’s favorite way to eat kale is in a smoothie. Here is a quick and yummy smoothie recipe that includes kale.

Kale & Banana Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups kale
  • 1 Banana
  • 1/2 cup Light unsweetened soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup

Directions:

  1. Place the banana, kale, soy milk, flax seeds, and maple syrup into a blender.
  2. Next, cover, and puree until smooth. Serve over ice.

DealDash Plans a Superbowl Party

Image result for super bowl party

Are you planning on having a Superbowl party? That sounds like a lot of work! Let DealDash help.

The Superbowl is on Sunday, February 5th featuring the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. Who do you want to win? No matter which team you’re rooting for, everyone enjoys a Superbowl party. Here are some hints and tips from DealDash on how to host a successful Superbowl party.

Food

Food is the second most important ingredient of your Superbowl party, following a TV, of course. What you feed your guests depends on your time and budget, but the classic Superbowl party foods are chicken wings, pizza, chips, and salsa/queso dip.

If you’d like to get a little more creative this year, how about making some meatballs with sauce in the slow cooker? If you don’t have a slow cooker you can win one on DealDash. DealDash puts slow cookers up for auction fairly frequently.

Don’t forget the beers, soda, and bottled waters. All of the yelling at the TV will definitely work up a thirst.

Disposable Items

Having a party means a lot of clean up. However, there will be far less clean up involved if you get paper plates, solo cups, and plastic cutlery for the party guests. I would also suggest getting a few disposable table cloths, that way if anyone spills, no problem. After the party you just toss it in the garbage and your counter is clean again.

Games

Watching the big game is on the forefront, but in case the action is a little slower than you’d like why not play some games of your own?  Video games are out since you’ll have the game on, so you’re going to have to go with board games like Apples to Apples, card games, or hey, it’s a party, drinking games!

Music

Even if you’re watching the game most parties are better with music. If you start making a playlist now you can have all of your songs ready to go on iTunes. For even more party fun, why not bust out the karaoke machine? It’s a lot of fun, and can really liven up your party. Be sure to check the reviews first, some machines are better than others.
