It’s Time To Decide

You’ve heard it said, not making a decision is a decision, and you’re going to have to live with the consequences of NOT deciding, if you don’t decide.

Decisions are difficult sometimes, but the cost of not making them can be even more difficult to deal with.

You know what I’m talking about; The boy who couldn’t decide which girl he liked better, then lost both.

If you’re having trouble making a decision, you’re in the right place.

I’ve had my own troubles making decisions, and something happened yesterday that motivated me to move a long with making decisions.

Last night an affiliate account, I’d put a lot of time and energy into, was cancelled because the website that I had associated it with didn’t have enough content on it.

This was a direct result of long term indecision…

I’ve know for sometime that I’ve been trying to run to many websites, Youtube Channels, and businesses; and that I needed to let go of some things in order to do some things great.

But NO… I stubbornly kept trying to do what I was doing, because I didn’t want to let anything go.  Basically I didn’t decide, and that’s why I lost the affiliate account.  I didn’t have enough time to make the website associated with it great, so a decision was made for me.

So now you know one Good Reason WHY you should make a decision, but the bigger question might be…

Why are YOU having a tough time deciding to begin with?

Experience tells me, it good be a lack of purpose in your life.

Getting a more clear Vision helps put tougher decisions into perspective.  There’s a book called The One Thing, and the basic principle of the book has helped me a little.

What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?Gary Keller, The One Thing

Some people like the idea of making a pros and cons list, and that might be a little helpful, but it’s also a good way to mull over what’s the better choice longer and longer.

Over analyzing our options can lead to pure frustration, and for whatever reason, logic doesn’t always yield the best decision.

What do you really want to do deep down in your soul?

Sometimes the question above is enough to help you decide and move on.  Other times, the consequences to your decision may be more serious, and you know what you want to do, but the consequences of doing what you want to do are irresponsible on some level.

In that case, it’s more difficult, and getting a clearer vision of where you want to go in your life is probably going to be your best bet in helping you decide.

I want to leave you with this.  I know decisions are serious sometimes, but try not to take yourself so serious.  Take some meditative deep breaths, and allow yourself to see the humor of your own predicament.

Then… make a decision and move on.  There’s a lot more decisions waiting to be made.

Let me know if this helped you to decide in the comments section, and thank you for reading.

Can Tea Make You Drunk?

What is being Tea Drunk, and other Thoughts about Tea

The big question is, can tea make you drunk?

When speaking of tea, I am referring to true tea, although I will touch on herbal teas as well.

“True tea is made from the leaves of an Asian evergreen known as Camellia sinensis. White tea, green tea, oolong tea, and black tea all come from this plant, and all contain caffeine.” As quoted from  ChoiceOrganicTeas.com

 

I’m going to answer the question of whether tea can make you drunk, based on the information I was able to dig up, but first, I want to tell you why I decided to talk about Tea in the first place.

I’m a tea addict, you see, and lately I’ve been considering quitting it all together, which is for me, a painful idea, because I obviously like tea a lot.

The problem is, I tend to overindulge in things that change my state, even to the degree of experiencing pain as a result.

I guess that’s why addiction is not good, even if it’s tea addiction.

When I started looking into the tea question I really wanted to see if there were other people out there that had been addicted to tea, then quit and felt a lot better, or achieved a higher amount of goals.

Basically, I wanted to know if quitting Tea would help me to be a Super Star.

I did find that people who quit tea experience things like:

  • Freedom from addiction
  • Better Sleep
  • Better Mood
  • Decreased Anxiety
  • Fewer Headaches
  • Whiter Teeth
  • Increased Productivity – A result of not spending time purchasing and indulging.
  • A General Sense of more constant well being.

This is where I can relate the most.  Whenever I take a break from drinking tea, after a few days I start to feel better on a consistent basis.

I’m less irritable, I feel how I feel on a deeper level, and generally feel a deeper sense of peace within my body.  I also notice that I breath deeper, and feel more emotionally stable.

You can see some Others Who’ve written about benefits of quitting tea HERE and HERE!

In defense of Tea drinking, it does appear that some conditions such as the following are affected in a good way as a result of drinking tea.

  • Atherosclerosis
  • Parkinson’s
  • Kidney Stones
  • Heart Attacks
  • Blood Pressure
  • Ovarian Cancer and
  • Osteoporosis

So Getting Back To The Original Question, Can Tea Make You Drunk?

It might be more accurate to say that drinking too much tea can cause inebriation.

As quoted from Dictionary.com Inebriation is…

to make drunk; intoxicate.

to exhilarate, confuse, or stupefy mentally or emotionally.

As stated on TeaVivre.com

“If you drink too much strong tea, it can have repercussions on your body similar to drinking too much alcohol, for example you may be troubled by tinnitus (a persistent ringing in the ears), or experience dizziness and fatigue.”

Also:

“If you drink tea on an empty stomach, you will not only dilute gastric juices so that you aren’t as able to digest foods as well, but the high absorbency rate of water in the tea will also cause your body to absorb caffeine easily causing you to experience dizziness, stress and possibly even neurasthenia in your hands or feet.”

I’m pretty sure this is kind of like a restless leg syndrome, but that can be in your hands or feet.

I also found an interesting article by a self proclaimed tea addict, Kegon Teng Kok Tan at Quora.com which gives you a lot of insight into the brain of a major tea addict and what it means to be drunk on tea.

Other important and interesting facts to know about Tea to help you decide what you’re going to do about tea.

At MedicalDaily.com I found out about a compound paper tea bags are treated with called Epichlorohydrin, which is a known carcinogen.

I’ve added a link HERE for you to check where a person has already done the research on some companies that use tea bags that are free of epichlorohydrin.

It’s also good to know that many teas are likely contaminated with pesticides in amounts that exceed US tolerances.  A company called Glaucus Research Group has analyzed some of the popular tea brands teas and found excessive amounts of pesticides in organic and non organic brands of tea.

A last important fact, that will put things in perspective for you about how dangerous tea can be.

10 Grams of caffeine could kill you or cause severe Side Effects, as quoted from WebMD.com

It would take about 111 cups of Black Tea to get 10 grams of caffeine. So in other words, you’re going to have to try real hard if you want to kill yourself with Tea.

Support For A Vegan Diet

Think A Vegan Diet Works?  Think You Have To Be A Nutcase To Be Vegan Long term?

Here is evidence that the Vegan Diet works and you can thrive on it.

I just listened to this DurianRider Video and I thought it would be appropriate to open this post up with it.

The language isn’t all that great, but durianrider does make some excellent points about the Vegan Diet so here it is.

Top 10 Comments Vegans Get

I like how Durianrider calls Meat Eaters out on the Iron question.  Many people seem to think that Iron isn’t available in plants, or the Iron from animal flesh (Heme Iron) is superior to plant Iron.

Heme Iron might be more bioavailable but a plant based diet tends to have higher amounts of Iron, so the vegan will get what they need, provided they are eating real foods as opposed to pastries.

The good thing about plant sources of Iron is you can’t overdose on it, as you can with animal flesh iron.  Too much iron leads to a condition called haemochromatosis and it causes all kinds of serious health problems.

That’s just one of the misconceptions Durianrider exposes in the video above.

Please share your comments and criticisms of the vegan diet below.  As long as it’s relevant, all comments are welcome.
