10 toxic people you should avoid like the plague

Written by Travis Bradberry

Toxic people defy logic. Some are blissfully unaware of the negative impact that they have on those around them, and others seem to derive satisfaction from creating chaos and pushing other people’s buttons.

As important as it is to learn how to deal with different kinds of people, truly toxic people will never be worth your time and energy — and they take a lot of each. Toxic people create unnecessary complexity, strife, and, worst of all, stress.

“People inspire you, or they drain you — pick them wisely.” – Hans F. Hansen

Recent research from Friedrich Schiller University in Germany shows just how serious toxic people are. They found that exposure to stimuli that cause strong negative emotions — the same kind of exposure you get when dealing with toxic people — caused subjects’ brains to have a massive stress response.

Whether it’s negativity, cruelty, the victim syndrome, or just plain craziness, toxic people drive your brain into a stressed-out state that should be avoided at all costs. Continue reading 10 toxic people you should avoid like the plague

For the past week, I have been enjoying a trip back to my favorite childhood event – Coloring. I used to sit on the porch, floor, or at the kitchen table with several coloring books and a 64 box of Crayola crayons. You had to drag me away from them.

Being an only child growing up, there was quite a bit of alone time to fill. Aside from my Atari 2600, and comic books, coloring was the best way to past the time. Now in 2015, coloring is back and adults everywhere are picking up new books, designed just for adults; with colored pencils, markers and crayons and skipping down memory lane.

Relaxing and stimulating at the same time, there is nothing like some smooth jazz or R&B with a coloring book to ease the tensions of a busy day. So tonite, why not grab a book, put the kids to bed and express yourself with some color.
