5 Cool things by Hong Kimhour


Window shopping
MOST people have difficulty finding leisure activities to banish their loneliness. Some of these activities make you feel bored from the beginning; others are too repetitive. One form of leisure that is easy, and that many people enjoy, is window shopping. You just look around in the markets and supermarkets and see whether what you are wearing and eating is up to date. Because this is the 21st century, trends spread around the world almost instantaneously. Window shopping can be a great way to learn what’s new and fashionable.


Doing yoga
YOGA is derived from the Sanskrit word “yoke”.  It essentially means the union of the infinite self with the finite self. Many people wonder what benefits this brings, so they ask: “Why do yoga?” The short answer is that yoga makes you feel better: practising the postures, breathing exercises and meditation makes you healthier in body, mind and spirit. In addition, yoga helps to manage or control anxiety, arthritis, asthma, back pain, blood pressure, chronic fatigue, depression, diabetes, epilepsy, headaches, heart disease, stress … the list goes on.  Because the health benefits are so numerous, you should consider changing your exercise regimen and taking up yoga.


Junk food

JUNK food is an informal term applied to foods that are perceived to have little or no nutrition value, such lollies, soft drinks, potato chips, ice cream, hamburgers, pizzas and other types of take-away food. Junk food does contain some of the things the body needs for good health. It does need some salt, fat and sugar for energy to burn while you work and play, but too much fat, sugar and salt is bad for your health and eating lots of junk food will overload your body with these things.


Volunteering
AS human beings in society, we have the ability to help one another in any circumstances. You can help other people in many ways, but volunteering is the best. You not only be a part of helping society, but you gain  valuable experience. People volunteer to develop their own skills, to meet others, to make contacts for possible employment, to have fun, and for a variety of other reasons. Moreover, volunteer workers can play a key role in a country’s economic growth. Why not help yourself, and your society, by becoming a volunteer?


Qeep

MOST people share their experiences and knowledge via social networking sites such as Facebook or Skype. But you can also share experiences, knowledge and good ideas through Qeep, a free social-networking application for mobile phones. It’s a great opportunity to provide, and receive, information from around the world. Furthermore, it can be a good source of entertainment to help you to escape from boredom,  and you don’t need a computer or email to use it.
