While it’s always fun to receive a complimentary present, it’s also not fun to give one. That’s why I hate getting a Christmas card signed simply by “Santa.” Well, actually, I don’t hate getting a Christmas card signed by “Santa,” but the idea of having to write a little something makes me sad. I’d rather not do anything than write something stupid and meaningless just to please someone.
I know, I know; it’s not Christmas yet. But just in case you’re wondering what to write, here are some ideas.
Who doesn’t like getting a discount? Whether you’re shopping online or in-store, you usually get excited about discounts. If you’ve ever used Ebates, you’ll know what I’m talking about. You get a discount just for using the website. Sometimes it’s even for multiple purchases in a day. There are plenty of retailers you can use for discounts, like Amazon, but you’ll also find discounts from restaurants, car providers, and more.
2. Secret Sales
When a business offers a secret sale, I always find myself wondering what the catch is. In most cases, there isn’t one. However, you should assume there’s always a catch, and you’re probably right. But, for now, pretend there’s no catch. For the sake of this article, let’s imagine there’s no catch. It’s just that the business wants to remain hidden. While that may not seem like a bad idea, if you actually want to purchase the product, you’ll have to find out where the store is located and go there yourself. That can be difficult if the store is not in your city.
Even if there’s no catch, there’s still a slight chance you won’t be able to redeem the offer. When that happens, you’ve been scammed. But, as I said before, there’s no reason to assume there’s always a catch. As long as you do your research and know what you’re buying, there’s no reason to worry.
3. Nootropic Acids
Do you suffer from depression or anxiety? If so, you might be interested in trying out nootropic acids. They’re supplements that can help with focus, memory, and more. I’ve used them myself and found them to be more effective than usual pills when it comes to maintaining focus and eliminating anxiety. When you’re feeling down, nothing promotes relaxation quite like curling up with a good book and taking a hit of codeine phosphate or oxynorm. It’s the perfect combination. But, again, you have to be prepared for the possibility of getting scammed. There’s no way to guarantee that these products will help you or that the claims are legit. Make sure you do your research before purchasing.
Are you a vegetarian or vegan and looking for some plant-based alternatives? You might want to check out A.l.C products. They’re vegan and vegetarian and offer plenty of healthy options. Some of their products even allow you to stack carbs and fats, which can be good for your body. While it’s not always easy being a vegetarian or vegan, at least you know where you’re going to get your meat and potatoes.
5. Relaxing Chill Pads
Does your workaholism or personal life prevent you from having enough time to yourself? If so, you might be interested in trying out some relaxing chill pads. They’re designed to help with relaxation, which is probably why some people use them when they need a break from their busy schedules. Some people also use them to sleep better. But the beauty of these pads is that they don’t just relax you; they can also relieve tension. Whether you’re lying down or sitting in a comfortable chair, you can put one of these pads under your nostrils and let the soothing, yet invigorating air gently touch your brain. When used in this way, they can help you remember things you might have neglected. But you have to be careful not to let them get wet or humid, otherwise, they could become dangerous. Also, make sure you don’t use them near any open electrical appliances or sources of heat such as a stove or oven. This is probably why some people prefer them to sleep with a fan blowing on them. The cooler the air, the better. Besides, if you use a sleep mask, it can prevent damage from bright light. Just keep your eyes closed, relax, and enjoy.
6. CBD Oil
If you’re looking for an all-natural remedy for epilepsy, then you might want to try CBD oil. It’s a common misconception that CBD is psychoactive. This is because, while it can be extracted from hemp plants, it doesn’t actually produce any effects in the same ways traditional pharmaceuticals do. Instead, it’s absorbed naturally into the bloodstream. This can have a calming effect on the brain, which is why people with epilepsy sometimes find it helpful. Not everyone will experience the same effects from CBD as others do, but those who do say it’s a worthwhile alternative to pharmaceutical medications. Plus, it’s a great deal easier to extract and apply to your skin than most medications. This makes it ideal for people who suffer from skin ailments, such as psoriasis and eczema. There’s also preliminary evidence that CBD can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. So, while CBD can’t replace your daily aspirin, it might be the answer you’re looking for in terms of disease prevention.
7. Subliminal Messaging
What if I told you there was a way to reach consumers without being obvious about it? You might want to try using subliminal messaging, which could be a valuable tool in your arsenal. With subliminal messaging, you can embed messages in a video, soundtrack, or image without the viewer consciously aware of it. The best part is that you don’t necessarily need specialized software to accomplish this. You can use online tools to do it manually or even on a full-time basis. Subliminal messaging can be a great way to get your message across while not being too obvious. For example, you could put a secret sales message in an ad for shoes if you wanted to encourage people to go to the website where the shoes are sold. Or, you could put an anti-drug message in a video showing a high school baseball player talking about his struggles with substance abuse. Without consciously registering what they’re seeing or hearing, the viewer will receive the message and hopefully, be moved by it.
Just remember that subliminal messaging is a form of advertising. So, if you do decide to try this tactic, make sure you develop a consistent messaging strategy and put a plan in place to measure the effect of your campaign.
As you can see, there are plenty of ways you can find products or services to help you with your everyday needs. Whether you need some relaxation, need an alternative to pharmaceuticals, or just want something new to try, these seven ideas should help get you there.
