Kind Of Rude

Rudeness Perpetuated

Can everyday attitudes be passed around like a common cold? There is a growing trend of people completing random acts of kindness, such as buying a coffee for the next person in line, etc. A recent University of Florida study has found that people who encounter rude behavior from a co-worker are more likely to act rude in future interactions.

The researchers found that having one rude employee may lead to other rude employees. People who were mistreated were more likely to feel that others were being rude to them in later interactions, and they would often respond by acting rude to others.

Research:

In one study, graduate students who participated in negotiations with their classmates would rate their behavior. When a student rated their partners behavior as rude, they were more likely to be rated as rude by their future partners.

Another study showed participants a video of a rude workplace interaction. They then had to answer an email from a fictitious customer. After seeing the rude video they were more likely to be rude in their email responses than others who first watched a video of a polite interaction at work.

What To Do:

  • Try to be the one who breaks the cycle. Rudeness may lead to more rudeness, but kindness can also lead to more kindness.
  • Get in good habits of releasing bad energy through doing things that make you happy (exercise, yoga, meditation, acupuncture, etc.)
  • It takes practice. Don’t expect to be great at turning the other cheek right away.

Feeling Young

Lifestyle Tips: Keep Yourself Feeling Young

Everyone wants to stay young and healthy, but the fountain of youth hasn’t been found just yet. The following are the best ways to stay feeling younger and healthier, as well as some things to avoid that can decrease your lifespan.

Things to do:

  • Be sure you are eating a well-balanced diet with plenty of green vegetables. The Mediterranean diet can help decrease your risks of many diseases (heart disease, Alzheimer’s, etc.)
  • Stress can lead to many problems with your health (increased risks of cardiovascular disease and stroke) and your stress level is often hard to measure. You may feel like you’re fine, but still experience high stress symptoms. Be sure to take time to de-stress. Chiropractic, acupuncture, yoga, and meditation are all great ways to relax. Even little things, like only checking your email 3 times a day, can help decrease the load of stress on your body.
  • Avoid sugar! Research is suggesting that sugar can actually make you look older. Instead reach for fruits and good fats if you get a sweets craving.
  • Keep exercising! Be sure to maintain your lean muscle mass and bone density as you age. Make exercising a fun part of your everyday life for the best chance of success.
  • Try to keep a healthy weight to avoid the many complications associated with being overweight or obese. Some research suggests that weighing in once a week led to the greatest success in weight loss.
  • Take care of your feet! A strong base is needed for proper balance. Be sure you have comfortable and supportive shoes that keep your feet happy.

Things to avoid:

  • Smoking
  • Not getting the right amount of sleep
  • A commute that is more than 30 minutes
  • Watching TV for more than 2 hours a day
  • Having sex less than 1 time a week
  • Consuming more than the recommended amount of alcohol
  • Sitting for more than 3 hours a day
  • Retiring before the age of 56
