Summary

It’s the perfect marriage of wisdom and wit—here are 100 valuable lessons on how to live, drawn from 100 hilarious and unforgettable jokes. A really good joke, like a great poem, memorable song lyric, razor-sharp anecdote, or Zen koan, is a portal of discovery—it can get a meaningful message across in a way that’s clear, humorous, and practical. It’s the secret weapon of every great comedian—there’s the joke, and then there’s the subtext of the joke, and that can mean serious business. A funny, funny joke about a therapist and his patient conveys, for example, an important lesson on the power of communication. A surprising joke about a tribal shaman and the weather service turns into a necessary critique on how we should view experts.

    The Gratitude Journal 
    How to Keep a Gratitude Journal and Experience Great Improvement of Your Life: 10 Useful Tips 
    We say “thank you” many times a day without actually meaning it. The response has become automatic, expected even, without actually acknowledging the reasons. For American's the dedicated “Thanksgiving Day” has even now become just another holiday to eat to excess and relax without the majority really displaying any thankfulness for the bounty in their lives.  
    Do you have a warm place to sleep? Food? How about a family or friends that care for you? Rather than being thankful for just having the latest tech there are probably plenty of things in your life that you should be thankful for everyday and don't realize. A gratitude journal is a tangible way of always having a reminder about the things you are thankful for in your life. This book intends on giving you both a lesson in gratitude and the tools to create your own journal. So whenever you feel down, turn a page and remember that maybe life isn't so bad.   
    Here is what you will learn after reading this book: 
    -Why living a life of gratitude can make you happier 
    -The science of gratitude 
    -How to include gratitude in your life 
    -How to write a gratitude journal 
    -Will a journal work for me?

    Have you heard about the weight loss effects of intermittent fasting? Do you know that this style of eating can help you drop the pounds and live a longer, healthier life? Maybe you’ve even gone as far as to research some of the standard well-known methods of fasting, such as Eat Stop Eat, 5:2, LeanGains, Fast Five, The FastDiet, or The Every Other Day Diet. 
     
    So why haven’t you started an intermittent fasting diet and made it a part of your regular lifestyle? 
     
    For many of us, the fear of hunger can prevent us from being successful at adopting a fasting lifestyle. But FAST DIET STRATEGIES can help you overcome any anxiety you feel about the hunger you may experience while intermittent fasting. In this book you’ll learn: 
     
    * The basic styles of intermittent fasting 
    * The fasting protocol I used to painlessly lose weight 
    * Tricks to reduce feelings of hunger 
    * Techniques for distracting yourself from fasting discomfort 
    * Advice for managing your mental fortitude and social situations 
     
    If you like the idea of eating anything you want for most days of the week — and only dieting part of the time — then consider exploring the world of intermittent fasting. You’ll be able to indulge in all your favorite foods and still lose weight, trim your waistline, and slim your figure. Dropping pounds can truly be as simple as adopting a “part-time” diet! And with the advice outlined in FAST DIET STRATEGIES, you’ll easily adapt to this healthy lifestyle and be slimmer in just a few weeks.
