文章一:
How to Go From Procrastination to Inspiration

1. Allow a Grace Period

Give yourself a grace period so you could allow yourself to mess up. This grace period serves as a cushion that softens the blow. If you are feeling stuck in an endless loop of procrastination, remove the burden by giving yourself the space to fail.

2. Detach From the Results

When you build a grace period into the planning or work, you give yourself a breather. If you really want to work with inspiration, remove the outcomes. I use this all the time. Whenever I feel overwhelmed and procrastinate because the task feels so daunting, I remind myself to detach from the results. This immediately melts away the tension and allows me to reconnect with life again, making me feel inspired.

3. Do Not Judge

Judging yourself harshly as a perfectionist is just inviting procrastination. Whenever you judge yourself, you are starting a vicious cycle that has no end. The first two steps do not guarantee that you will not fail. They are there to get you mobile again after being paralyzed with fear. This third step will help you to cope with the failure in a healthy way if your fear becomes a reality.

By keeping these three simple steps in mind, you can break out of your own cycles of procrastination, unlocking maximum inspiration and success.

文章二:
How to Relieve Intestinal Gas—Naturally

Modify Your Diet

Foods that produce gaseous carbs include many kinds of vegetables (such as broccoli, garlic, asparagus, cauliflower, and onion), fruits (like peaches, pears, and apricots), certain grains (such as oats, polenta, and quinoa), dairy, and legumes. Eliminating these foods from your diet can help to reduce your digestive issues.

Yogurt

Yogurt is the go-to food choice for people with digestive issues because it contains probiotics, which help to promote gut health. It can relieve bloating and gas pains almost immediately—as long as you aren’t lactose intolerant. And be aware, not all yogurt is created equal. Look for brands with live probiotics.

Fresh Citrus Juice

Citrus fruit juices, such as those derived from lemons and oranges, are generally great low-gas options to consume. Adding some fresh lemon or lime juice to water will also help to improve your overall digestion.

Ginger

Either eating some raw ginger root or drinking it in a cup of tea can help relieve bloating and gas. Ginger is a natural carminative—an agent that relieves gas.
