Cinemagraphs and Animations from the mysterious “The Eternal... crss

Cinemagraphs and Animations from the mysterious “The Eternal Moonshine” “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; What is essential is invisible to the eye”………. Regarding me, I have to say I don’t speak much about myself and the title the-eternal-moonshine refers to the way I create things in the shades of the night and its mysteries. I am stargazer, an eternal dreamer, and I just want to share some messages of tenderness, love and respect. Beyond that, I have always posted things that would speak for myself in a much more accurate way that I would probably ever do. The blog is full of little clues and secrets for the one who is curious. I am anonymous and no one of my friends or my family knows about that mysterious blog. That’s a way for me to leave it free and naive. Thanks again so much, and good night! ☆☆☆ Mr Moon .Gifs only More unique art on Cross Connect Magazine: Twitter || Facebook|| Instagram Posted by Andrew crss

Everyone Can Be Sherlock Holmes, Build Your Mind Palace For Exceptional Memory

Sherlock Holmes has been a household fictional character for decades. Famous for being detail-minded, observant, logical, slightly (or very) sociopathic, Sherlock is also known for his memory technique — his MIND PALACE (or memory palace). In the BBC crime drama Sherlock , Sherlock Holmes (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) mentioned the word “mind palace” numerous times. He goes there to retrieve memories and information to piece together answers to solve crimes. In this scene in the episode The Hounds of Baskerville , Sherlock was deciphering what the word “liberty” means. Sherlock: Get out! I need to go to my mind palace. Lab assistant: What? John: He’s not going to be doing much talking for a while, we might as well go. Lab assistant: (confused) His what? John: Mind palace. Then Dr. Watson continued to explain to the lab assistant what a mind (or memory) palace is. A memory palace is a mental map or location that stores past memories, and it allows a person to trace back to

Don't Reply Messages Instantly. It Can Seriously Ruin Your Life

You’ve left the office for a well-deserved lunch break. Just as you sit down in your favorite diner to enjoy your sandwich and coffee… your cellphone beeps to say you have a new message. You pick up your phone, read the message, and immediately begin to reply (even though it’s nothing important or time-sensitive). By doing this, you’ve demonstrated a reactive state, where you’ve allowed your lunch break to be disrupted for a little reason. When this type of behavior becomes habitual – you’ve become a slave to circumstances. When you’re reactive, you allow your personal happiness to be determined by events outside of your control. And you take actions only based on what has happened. Successful people on the other hand take actions based on their own plans. They are proactive and take charge of their own lives. They prioritize their work and won’t let people distract them and slow down their progress. Replying messages instantly seem to be just a small problem. But it’s more seri

How To Be More Interesting? Talk About Your Feelings Not Facts

It’s your first day of work. On your first step into the company, you were bombarded with unfamiliar faces. Your eagerness to meet new colleagues urged you to say something but you couldn’t find an interesting topic to start with. Anxious about your words. Fear about leaving a boring impression to the others. Palms are sweating. How not to be boring? Is being boring an inherent quality? What makes a person interesting? The following qualities may come to your mind: Sense of humor, Extraordinary life experience. However, these qualities do not actually make a person interesting. In fact, it is you that makes yourself an interesting or a boring person. None is born boring, nor is anyone more interesting than the others inherently. A seemingly boring person can become interesting if you know the tricks, being faithful to yourself and avoiding facts. What do boring persons usually do? One common talking style among boring persons is that they tend to be objective. They often talk

Can You Believe That Sad Songs Actually Make Us Happy? See What Science Explains!

Most of us have tendency to avoid sad songs and music when we feel particularly down since we believe that it will make us feel even worse. For most people, post-breakup behavior usually includes actually listening to a lot of sad songs whose music and lyrics speak of our woe in order to make us feel even worse and get all the sadness out as soon as possible. Yet, seems that we all had it wrong all along. Science proves the opposite is true – sad music actually makes us happier and improves our mental health. Here’s how. Songs are sad but they bring positivity to our brain! Similarly to the case of a musical device called appoggiatura found in a number of sad songs, such as Adele’s “Someone Like You”, there is a scientific explanation to why sad music actually makes us happy. David Huron, a professor of arts and humanities in the School of Music and the Center for Cognitive Science at the Ohio State University, has been studying the effects of sad music on people. During earlier s

Why Being Too Nice Is A Curse. Here's How I Learn To Grow My Backbone.

Since we were toddlers, our parents, seniors, and teachers constantly tell us the importance of being nice. There’s nothing wrong with being nice, in fact, we should be nice to people. But have you encountered someone who goes overboard with their niceness? There’s a fine line of being nice and TOO nice. Imagine the colleague who laughs at every single joke at work. Or the friend who compliments everything that you are doing. Or the stranger who starts a conversation with you and responds with “I agree”. Do you find them nice or irritating? I think most people will say the latter. We might even find that person disingenuous. So what’s the key to be nice but not overly nice? Here are 3 tips for you to keep closely in mind: Don’t only nod and agree Sometimes, it is difficult to balance being nice and voicing our opinions. For some reason, we think others are fragile, and criticisms or disagreements can easily break a relationship, so we decide to go the safest route — nod and agree
