Goodbye House!!!


I have already watched the two-hour last episode of House.  Eight (8) seasons in eight (8) years and it’s really sad that a great show like this has come to its end. My boyfriend introduced the existence of the show to me. After watching the first episode, I really got hooked to it. I got familiar with medical terms, treatments and symptoms watching the show. Here are the things that I love about House:

  • Tthe character of House – being the sarcastic, egoistic and selfish physician. It was quoted that House is the modern Sherlock Holmes. I find him very irritating but he’s still House, the magnificent diagnostician.
  • Franks, bets and drug addiction of House
  • House and Cuddy‘s complicated relationship
  • Friendship of House and Wilson – me and my boyfriend called it “gayish”
  • Imprisonment of House
  • Pretty, handsome and witty physicians – Cameron, Thirteen, Adams, Chase and Foreman
  • Comic characters of Park, Taub and Kutner
  • Amber and Kautner’s death
  • Discovery of Wilson’s cancer
  • Puzzles behind the stories
I did enjoyed the last episode where House was trapped in a building with fire and he was able to talk to Kutner, Amber, Cameron and his ex-wife while hallucinating. Everyone assumed that he was dead after that incident. It was really a sad moment for everyone giving their messages during his eulogy not until Wilson speaks, getting mad and letting everyone knows how bad House is but he suddenly stopped after receiving SMS from House telling him to shut up. He found out that House is not dead. House decided not to let others know that he’s alive and spent his time with Wilson. Watching the whole finale episode, I was also able to see the people behind the production, their efforts, location and happiness of doing the show for eight years. House is one of the best TV shows that I’ve watched and it’s really worth watching. Thumbs up, goodbye House!!!

Be Healthy and Earn Money through USANA!!!


I’ve been wanting to have my own business to earn extra money aside from my salary but I don’t have that big amount of money to start one. Last July, I was invited by my office mate to attend a presentation of a part-time business. Since it’s all about business, I accepted his invitation. We went to Enterprise building in Ayala, Makati. The said building is one of the highest-paid buildings in that city. When we reached in the 24th floor, that was the time I discovered Usana. I haven’t heard of the company because it has been in the Philippines for only a year. I was really amazed with the company, products and the business itself that I joined Usana the next day.

Here is the video when Usana opened in the Philippines:

Let’s talk about the beginning of the company, Usana.

Here are the some of the USANA products:

You want strong and healthy bones, so the question you need to ask yourself is, are you getting enough vitamin D? Because of limited time in the sun and an inadequate amount in the average diet, there is growing concern that Americans are not meeting the recommended amount of vitamin D. It’s important for your body’s structure and the integrity of your bones to absorb the right levels of calcium and magnesium, and vitamin D helps this process. The benefits of having strong bones include preventing bone fracture and even avoiding osteoporosis later in life. Active Calcium is a balanced and complete formula of these important ingredients. And what makes Active Calcium “active” is the fact that the ingredients are bioavailable. For a calcium supplement to be effective, it must be absorbable, and USANA’s Active Calcium’s formula is the outstanding choice among competitors.

Bone and Joint Health
It’s easy to forget that bones are comprised of living tissue, with minerals being constantly deposited and withdrawn.

Our Bone and Joint Health supplements provide you with essential building blocks of healthy bones and joints.

  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin D
  • Silicon

How to Use: Take two (2) tablets a day, preferably with meals.

SEX is…


“Sex is a thoroughly unloved human behavior”

Isn’t it ironic…“that the very thing responsible for every parent and every child is a philosophical orphan? People thirst for a sexonomy, a factual set of fundamental principles that lets us talk and think about sex as a reflexive built-in thing we do, no different than coughing, thinking, sneezing, or singing. Sex is here because we are members of the human species, not because of any act of yours or mine. And most people can’t bring themselves to talk about it.”John Hopkins, university psychologist & John Money, sexologist

Friends Make Your Life Longer


I have known so many people I call friends. I’ve met the worst people – people who lie everyday. People who pretend to be nice but they are not. Be careful with them. They are all around you. People who have nothing but to mind others’ lives or join others in whatever issues. I’m not the sweet or nice type of person who pretends to be nice with everybody for me to gain friends. I’m a friendly person and I love interacting with different people. I look snobbish at first but once you’ve talked to me and we hit with our conversations, that’s the start of a good friendship. I say anything I want, kind of tackless at times. I laugh all the time and enjoy having a good time with my friends. Honestly, friendship is very important to me. I’ll do ways to keep the friendship longer. If you’ve had a ruined friendship because of some nonsense reasons, that’s not friendship at all…that’s bullshit. What I really like about having friends, I’ve got to see and know their attitudes. It’s either you accept it or not but I have learned that no matter how hard you try to accept and understand someone, your effort will be worthless if that someone is really at its worst.

I can say that friendship is the secret to a longer life. I don’t think people who don’t have friends, loners or hates people, have this good or healthy life. Friendships play an important role in maintaining a good health and having a long life especially in times of problems. As of now, social ties are the cheapest medicine we’ve got for everyone. A friend can boost your chances of surviving anything. A friend gives you longer life expectancies. I’ve known some who are isolated from other people and they are not living a happy and healthy life. A friend lessens the suffering from depression, anxiety and other type of mental illnesses. A friend encourages you to take good care of yourself or even takes care of you. A friend calms your fears and gives you hope.  A friend stays with you in any situation or any crisis.

So if you have friends, keep them! It’s hard to find true friends nowadays. =)

Are You Crazy About Nuts?


I love eating nuts. I used to eat nuts during reviews when I was in high school and college because I can bring it along with me easily and eat it anytime and anywhere. Nuts is also considered as food for the brain, that’s what I believed.

I have read in Reader’s Digest:

“Nuts is also a health food for the heart. There was a study made in Harvard Medical School showing that men who ate a couple of handfuls of nuts each week have a lower risk of sudden death due to cardiac arrest compared to those who ate less often.”

Do you know why nuts is so healthy for the heart? Because of its high saturated fats, magnesium and vitamin E.

TRIVIA: Munching nuts may also help protect against dementia.

Dementia is a non-specific illness syndrome where higher mental functions are affected. Affected persons may not know what day of the week, month or year, not know where they are or even not know who they are. (Wikipedia)

Scientists even found out that people with a diet rich in foods containing vitamin E has less chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease, also a form of dementia.

That what nuts can do!

I still continue eating nuts but the weird thing about me: I don’t eat nuts when mixed in chocolates, ice-creams, even brownies. I don’t buy chocolate bars with nuts. It should be plain chocolate. I don’t buy ice-cream with nuts because I don’t feel like separating the nuts from the ice-cream. I love eating brownies from KFC, the one with chocolate bits and nuts. Since it’s small, I find it tolerable to separate the nuts then eat the brownies afterwards. =)

Occupational Health and Safety is Important


I have noticed that many of my co-workers have been absent in the office this last few days. Sick? Stressed? I think so. They have been concentrating too much at work that they forgot to give some concerns on their health. I have read that companies are having problems in sustaining talented workers, also include the stress that the remaining workers experience in the workplace. Many workers claim that stress has a big impact on them, also to the economy and enterprises, as this condition continues to rise. Nowadays, many people who tend to be workaholics increases. Some suffer mental illnesses while others suffer from depression. I couldn’t believe that many people prefer to work too much that they forget their health and safety. Yes, they have the riches that they want but they couldn’t bring those money to their deaths. In a workplace where workaholism appears, everyone is fighting or even dying to work to be paid with the high salary they are asking for.

A worker is very important in one’s workplace so the companies should learn from their mistakes and be responsible to their workers. I’ve been working for two years in a company and I also witness my co-workers difficulties. Some concentrates on overwork affecting their productivity at work, family relationship and personal health. Some of them ended up resigning under workplace health and safety guidelines. I’ve been working so hard all day too but sometimes I take vacation leave to relax a bit. In all these, I believe that employers should ensure the health and safety of all workers by offering risk management in the workplace. It is their obligation to the workers. Be it emotionally, mentally or physically. They should take it seriously or suffer the penalties.

The said issues are part of the occupational health and safety of the workers. What is occupational health and safety? It is an important area which concerns the health, protection, safety and welfare of people employed in a company. If employers are having problems in managing their business, they can outsource firms which specializes with occupational health and safety, risk and workers compensation. These firms can do the management of the business for them. In this case, they can concentrate with the goals of their business and ensure that everything will be in the right place.

DON’T EAT TOO MUCH RICE


The human body was never meant to consume rice! You see, our genes have hardly changed in more than 30,000 years. However, our food choices and lifestyle have changed dramatically. The caveman would hardly recognize our food or way of life.

Caveman food was never cooked as fire was not yet tamed. Thus, he ate only those foods that you can eat without treatment with or by fire. He ate fruits, vegetables, fish (sushi anyone?), eggs, nuts and meat. Yes, even meat. You can even eat meat raw if you were starving in the forest. You have the necessary enzymes to digest meat.

However, rice, like wheat and corn, cannot be eaten raw. It must be cooked. Even if you were starving i n the desert, you cannot eat rice in the raw form. This is because we do not have the system of enzymes to break rice down. You were never meant to eat rice. To make matters worse, you not only eat rice, but also make it the bulk of your food.

In some parts of Asia , rice forms up to 85% of the plate. Even if you take rice, keep it to a minimum. Remember, it is only for your tongue – not your body. Actually, rice and other grains like wheat and corn are actually worse than sugar. There are many reasons:

>>> Rice becomes sugar – lots of it.

This is a fact that no nutritionist can deny: rice is chemically no different from sugar. One bowl of cooked rice is the caloric equal of 10 teaspoons of sugar. This does not matter whether it is white, brown or herbal rice. Brown rice is richer in fibre, some B vitamins and minerals but it is still the caloric equal of 10 teaspoons of sugar. To get the same 10 teaspoons of sugar, you need to consume lots of kangkong – 10 bowls of it.


>>> Rice is digested to become sugar.

Rice cannot be digested before it is thoroughly cooked. However, when thoroughly cooked, it becomes sugar and spikes circulating blood sugar within half an hour – almost as quickly as it would if you took a sugar candy. Rice is very low in the “rainbow of anti-oxidants”

This complete anti-oxidant rainbow is necessary for the effective and safe utilization of sugar. Fruits come with a sugar called fructose. However, they are not empty calories as the fruit is packed with a whole host of other nutrients that help its proper assimilation and digestion.

  

 

>>> Rice has no fibre.

The fibre of the kangkong fills you up long before your blood sugar spikes. This is because the fibre bulks and fills up your stomach. Since white rice has no fibre, you end up eating lots of “calorie dense” food before you get filled up. Brown rice has more fibre but still the same amount of sugar.

>>> Rice is tasteless.

Sugar is sweet. There is only so much that you can eat at one sitting. How many teaspoons of sugar can you eat before you feel like throwing up? Could you imagine eating 10 teaspoons of sugar in one seating?

>>> Rice is always the main part of the meal.

While sugar may fill your dessert or sweeten your coffee, it will never be the main part of any meal. You could eat maybe two to three teaspoons of sugar at one meal. However, you could easily eat the equal value of two to three bowls (20 – 30 teaspoons) of sugar in one meal. I am always amused when I see someone eat sometimes five bowls of rice (equals 50 teaspoons of sugar) and then asks for tea tarik kurang manis! Are you a rice addict? Going rice-less may not be easy but you can go rice-less. Eating less rice could be lot easier than you think. Here are some strategies that you can pursue in your quest to eat less rice:

There is no real “built in” mechanism for us to prevent overeating of rice
How much kangkong can you eat? How much fried chicken can you eat? How much steamed fish can you eat? Think about that! In one seating, you cannot take lots of chicken, fish or cucumber, but you can take lots of rice. Eating rice causes you to eat more salt.

  

 

You tend to take more curry that has salt to help flavor rice. We also tend to consume more ketchup and soy sauce which are also rich in salt.

Eating rice causes you to drink less water. The more rice you eat, the less water you will drink as there is no mechanism to prevent the overeating of rice. Rice, wheat and corn come hidden in our daily food. As rice is tasteless, it tends to end up in other foods that substitute rice like rice flour, noodles and bread. We tend to eat the hidden forms which still get digested into sugar. Rice, even when cooked, is difficult to digest

Can’t eat raw rice? Try eating rice half cooked. Contrary to popular belief, rice is very difficult to digest. It is “heavy stuff”. If you have problems with digestion, try skipping rice for a few days. You will be amazed at how the problem will just go away.  

Rice prevents the absorption of several vitamins and minerals. Rice when taken in bulk will reduce the absorption of vital nutrients like zinc, iron and the B vitamins.

Eat less rice – Cut your rice by half. Barry Sears, author of the Zone Diet, advises “eating rice like spice”.

>>> Instead, increase your fruits and vegetables.

>>> Take more lean meats and fish.

You can even take more eggs and nuts. Have “riceless” meals. Take no rice or wheat at say, breakfast. Go for eggs instead.

>>> Go on “riceless” days.

Go “western” once a week. Take no rice and breads for one day every week. That can’t be too difficult. Appreciate the richness of your food. Go for taste, colors and smells. Make eating a culinary delight. Enjoy your food in the original flavors.

 

 

 

>>> Avoid the salt shaker or ketchup.

You will automatically eat less rice. Eat your fruit dessert before your meals. The fibre rich fruits will “bulk up” in your stomach. Thus, you will eat less rice and more fruits.

Uncanny Prophesy: What will happen to the world and to the Philippines at 2008


2 earthquakes have occurred in our country – this morning and last Sunday. I was really bothered by this. There were also rumors also spreading in the e-mails and internet that there’ll be an earthquake in the Philippines on July 18, intensity 8.1! I don’t know where it came from until a friend of mine posted this in his blog. This might be the source of all these. Read this:

Mr. Juseleeno Nobulega DaRoose is Brazilian, born in 1960, 47 years old now, his occupation is a teacher, he is a normal citizen, having a very poor life with his wife and kids. All the events which Mr. Juselleno predicted had clear indication of the year, month date of the disasters, in case any third party wants to confirm the facticity of his prophesy, Mr. Juselleno always put the story which he predicted to the notarization office or post office for the approval.

Somebody asked him, how old did he start the prophesy dream, he answered: 9 years old, from 1969, he dreamed 3 events a day, sometimes 9 events, the times he dreamed is different every day. He said all the prophesy dreams were automatically in his dream. When Mr. Juseleeno was 19 years old, he met the famous Brazilian prophesy Saint Mr. Franciscoshabiz, after that the worldwide disaster events were increased in his prophesy dream. Mr. Franciscoshabiz was two times the candidate for the Nobel Prize, he is a very famous differential functional person, at the same time he is also the Charitarian. The events which Mr. Juseleeno predicted are already more than 80000, firstly let’s look at below a few big worldwide events and huge disaster from his prophesy.

Princess Diana was assassinated

Mr. Juseleeno sent a warning letter to Diana via post office on 4th March,1997. I got the message from the God that someone is planning to kill you in the car accident, your life will be dangerous, 7 angels told me about this. You may die in this car accident and the specialist may close this case as a driving mistake, but they are totally wrong. The murder is close to you. And it will happen before 2000.

Juseleeno also send this warning letter to the time, Darlytelegraph and Guardian etc. new agents in England , but never published. The car accident was happened on 31st August,1997, 5 month after the warning letter was sent out. Just as the prophesy said that the case was closed as driving mistake. The accuracy of this prophesy is not only to predict the huge event but also the truth of the intrigue behind the event. There are a lot of rumors after the accident, Diana was killed by the England royal family centered by queen Elizabeth.

The prophesy said it will happen before 2000, though there isnt exact date on, but this prophesy was sent to the president (Fernando Henrique Silva Cardoso) of Brazil 2 years before the accident and mentioned about from 1997 to 98 that Diana will die etc.

The second attack of World Trade Center , it is 911

Jeseleeno sent the warning letter to the president of USA in 1989, the warning letter had also published at a notarization office which run by Mr. Klicheeba in the town of Palana. This warning letter also predicted that the World Trade Center will get the first attack in 1993, though there was no exact date on but the second attack was clearly told 11th September, 2001. Everyone knew the result, the first attack was happened on 26th Feb.1993, three and half year after the warning letter sent out, the parking place was blow up and many people injured, the second attack happened on 11th September 2001, 13 years after the warning letter sent out, it is the 911.

The exclamatory thing is, this prophesy also told about Afghanistan and Iraq war will start after 911, after Iraq lost, the president Haisan will run to Adawr the middle of Iraq etc. are all in the letter, like you all know, the events in the prediction letter were happened one by one.

Sumatra Indonesia earthquake

Juseleeno sent the warning letter about Indonesia Sumatra Earthquake to the India Embassy on 16th September, 1996, about 8 years before the disaster. This warning letter predicted that there will be 8.9 earthquake in Aceh Indonesia in the morning of 26th December, 2004. India and Indonesia will be attacked by the tsunami. He sent the warning letter to the president of Indonesia on 30th April, 1997, the letter is about. I dreamed that 7:00am 26th Dec, 2004, South Asia will be attacked by 8.9 earthquake, at the same time will get the tsunami, the area will be Aceh Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Maladiv, Bombay. And many people will be dead.

The result is – the earthquake was happened at 07:58am 26th Dec. More than 200,000 people dead, the biggest tsunami was about 30 meters, a lot people were dead by the tsunami. He also sent the same letter to Indonesia, Philippine, Thailand and other Embassies. He also got the thanks letter from these countries.

The thanks letter from Meigawadi said about the 2004 earthquake and tsunami, to prevent the disaster, we must do a lot of things, but in another hand, we can do nothing. The thanks letter from Indonesia Embassy said, we will send this letter to our government, if you have any update information, please let us know.

From above information, Juseleeno already predicted that there will be more than 200,000 people die in the tsunami and earthquake 8 years before the disaster, he sent the warning letter with detail date on to these countries, but nobody did any preventive measures.

The writer pick up a few events which Juseleeno predicted for the future.

Mr.Juseleeno’s prophesy is not only for the disease and earthquake but also for the exact name. For example the formal US president Gore famous book, An Inconvenient Truth. The name of tornado which will attack Brazil, and thousands people will die, the name of infectious disease ( ALS), the name for San Francisco’s earthquake (the Big One) and etc. events.

The sea will go down 6 meters before the tsunami and the birds will move away too.

Mr.Juseleeno predicted that when the cats and dogs know the disaster is coming, they want to get away from the venue, they will have strange behaviors 24 hours before the disaster, so we can use that for the standard of judgment.

On 31st June, 2002, NASA confirmed and called this small planet 2002ZNT7

2019

May find out the science power solution, if the small planet knock together, 1/3 population of the world will die. Mr. Juseleeno predicted that the percentage for the small planet knock the earth will be 60%.

2043

The world population reduced, about 80% people dead in the disaster.

Will 2008 Beijing Olympic Game be held smoothly?

As above said, in 2008, China will get 9.1 earthquake and more than millions people will die, according to Mr. Juseleeno’s prediction that the earth quake will be 13th September,2008, and Olympic will hold on 8th August-24th, In this schedule, the earthquake will happen after Olympic, but before the big earthquake, there will be a lot of small earthquake, it will make the country and people upset.

There will be a lot of small earthquake before the big one, although Juseleeno didnt predict the exact date, but if we presume the small earthquake will happen one or two month before and it may be the period of Olympic, if so it may make the host and athletes give up. When the writer read this prophesy from Juseleeno, he suddenly remember the space time traveler John Titoer’s last word, 2004 Athens Olympic Game will be last one.

But, if the earthquake is in the south of China, Nanning and Hai Nan, and there are no Olympic games, the Beijing Olympic Game will close successfully. But the problem is that China government is only care about the reputation and successfully of the Olympic game, ignore the small earthquakes, and no preparation before the big one. China may control the report, closed all the news. If so there will be a big disaster as the prophesy said. In Mr. Juseleenos warning letter said if there is no preparation to protect the citizens, will get huge loss

Mr. Juseleeno also predicted that glacier period is coming.

He also has the right prophesy for the weather, one of them is, in 2003, Europe got high temperature, 29th October, 2001, the warning letter said the nature world will beat back to the world, the temperature of France, Germany and Portugal will become higher, more than ten thousand people will die, this disaster will happen between 2003 and 2004. the truth is, the temperature in the summer of 2003 had reached the highest one which they’ve never had in Europe, about 35,000 people dead, especially France and Germany, about 14,000 people dead in France and 7,000 people dead in Germany .

From Mr.Juseleeno’s prophesy, the earth temperature will get higher every year, till 2012, the temperature in Africa will reach 58 degrees and the same time will have serious water problem, after the temperature will be even higher, till 2015, the average temperature of earth will reach 59 degrees, a lot of people will die, the human will get frighten all over the world. If this is the truth, the countries will against each other because of the aridity and not enough food, Mr. Jeseleeno also predicted that there will be some new wars because of the aridity, but he didn’t have clear prophesy, but he felt it wont be the normal war.

Anyway, the temperature is getting higher is not like the aerography said (the speed is very slow), actually very quick. However the warmness seems not always incessant, after the high temperature, a big part of ice of Greenland and South Pole will be dissolved and go to the sea, the circulation of the sea will be lower and become colder, it means a new glacier time. In Juseleenos prophesy seems also said after 2027, there will be a new glacier. Details of the prophesy as below:

The volcano of America yellow park will break out, the smoke and magma will go 1,600 kilometer far, Kansas, Nebraska, Montana will all get damaged. The break out of the volcano is not only in Yellow park, but also some other place in the world. these smoke will blot out the sun, the circulation of see will stagnate and active the cold phenomena.

Eir and kol got Nobel award

As we all know, the formal president Gore dedicate on study of earth temperature, his famous book An Inconvenient Truth was made to a movie and also get the Oscar award. Actually 19 years ago, Mr. Juseleeno already predicted about this, the phophesy had been published on Moon Magazine in June, in the end of may, before the publish, the editor told the writer about this, I really got surprised for a while..

According the letter which Juseleeno sent to Gore, this prophesy letter already inform Gore that from 1993 to 2001 he won’t be the vice president anymore, he will dedicate on protect the world environment activities, and he will write a book, An Inconvenient Truth to become famous, the English letter Juseleeno wrote to Gore also told the books name and he will get the 2007 Nobel award, we will know this autumn, Lets looking forward for the prophesy for Mr. Gore. We cant deny Mr. Juseleenos prophesy.

There are not much time for Human, from December 2007, the Black Cloud will extend all over the world, as Mr. Juseleeno predicted that if the human still keep the actuality, human will have terrible life from 2008 till 2012, the black cloud will full of the sky before the disaster. If we want the disaster, and war stay away from us, the deadline for human is the end of 2007. Mr. Juseleeno expected the world consciousness will change in the end of 2007.

When I read this, I got so scared. We don’t even know if it’s true or not. The only thing we can do now is to pray for everyone’s safety.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN THIS? LET ME KNOW…

 

Your Sleeping Position, Your Personality


If you want to know someone’s true personality, then try to know the way he/she sleeps.

Scientists believe the position in which a person goes to sleep provides an important clue about the kind of person they are.

Professor Chris Idzikowski, director of the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, has analysed six common sleeping positions – and found that each is linked to a particular personality type.

“We are all aware of our body language when we are awake but this is the first time we have been able to see what our subconscious posture says about us”.

“What’s interesting is that the profile behind the posture is often very different from what we would expect.”

The 6 positions studied by Professor Idzikowski:

• The Foetus: Those who curl up in the foetus position are described as tough on the outside but sensitive at heart. They may be shy when they first meet somebody, but soon relax. This is the most common sleeping position, adopted by 41% of the 1,000 people who took part in the survey. More than twice as many women as men tend to adopt this position.

• Log (15%): Lying on your side with both arms down by your side. These sleepers are easy going, social people who like being part of the in-crowd, and who are trusting of strangers. However, they may be gullible.

• The Yearner (13%): People who sleep on their side with both arms out in front are said to have an open nature, but can be suspicious, cynical. They are slow to make up their minds, but once they have taken a decision, they are unlikely ever to change it.

• Soldier (8%): Lying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. People who sleep in this position are generally quiet and reserved. They don’t like a fuss, but set themselves and others high standards.

• Freefall (7%): Lying on your front with your hands around the pillow, and your head turned to one side. Often gregarious and brash people, but can be nervy and thin-skinned underneath, and don’t like criticism, or extreme situations.

• Starfish (5%): Lying on your back with both arms up around the pillow. These sleepers make good friends because they are always ready to listen to others, and offer help when needed. They generally don’t like to be the centre of attention.

The remainder of those in the poll said the position they fell asleep varied or did not know.

Professor Idzikowski also examined the effects of various sleeping positions on health. He concluded that the freefall position was good for digestion, while the starfish and soldier positions were more likely to lead to snoring and a bad night’s sleep.

Professor Idzikowski said: “Lying down flat means that stomach contents can more readily be worked back up into the mouth, while those who lie on their back may end up snoring and breathing less well during the night.

Both these postures may not necessarily awaken the sleeper but could cause a less refreshing night’s sleep.”

The research also found that most people are unlikely to change their sleeping position. Just 5% said they sleep in a different position every night.

Professor Idzikowski also found that one arm or leg sticking out of the duvet is Britain’s most common position, followed by both feet poking out the end.

One in ten people like to cover themselves entirely with the duvet.

I OFTEN SLEEP IN THE FOETUS AND STARFISH POSITIONS. THE DESCRIPTIONS IN THE SAID ARE REALLY CLOSE TO THE REAL ME. I SHOW OTHER PEOPLE THAT I’M TOUGH BUT DEEP INSIDE I’M REALLY SENSITIVE ESPECIALLY WITH FAMILY ISSUES. SINCE I’M FRIENDLY AND GET ALONG WITH WELL, IT’S EASY FOR ME TO GAIN FRIENDS AND MAKE SURE THAT I LISTEN AND HELP MY FRIENDS WHENEVER THEY HAVE PROBLEMS.
