Tidbits encourages you to...

Don’t Worry - Be Happy by Kathy Wolfe During this time of year as we focus on being thankful, Tidbits urges readers to take a few moments to improve their emotional well-being and happiness by thinking positive! • What makes us happy? Psychologists suggest that each person has a happiness “set point,” which is a personal tendency to be very happy, somewhat happy, or not at all happy. About 50% of the explanation for a person’s set point is determined by genetic make-up, which helps to explain why some folks just seem to be naturally happier than others! It also helps explain why long-term levels of happiness appear to be resistant to many significant life events, both good and bad. Lottery winners initially feel “overjoyed” and people who have experienced a negative life event, such as a job loss or death of a loved one, feel “sorrowful,” But most of these

individuals eventually settle back to their set point. Research confirms that personal circumstances, such as level of wealth and where we live, account for a measly 10% of happiness. Are happier people more successful in their personal and professional lives? It appears so partly because happy individuals’ positive moods motivate them to work enthusiastically toward their goals. They lean toward feeling confident, optimistic, and energetic, they have a positive perception of themselves, and others find them more likable. Happier folks seem to perform better in job interviews and secure better positions as a result. They also tend to have less absenteeism at work. Level of happiness also affects an individual’s health. Data indicates that happier people have lower levels of hypertension and lower blood pressure. Those who use humor to cope with difficulties have stronger immune systems, and are less likely to get sick. They have fewer doctor visits, use less medication, and are much less likely to experience substance abuse. Do you think you’d be happier if you just had more money? Not so, say researchers! Income actually has a weak effect on levels of happiness. In the workplace, employees seem to gain more satisfaction from their rank, position, and sense of achievement than they do from their pay. Surprisingly, spending money on others – as little as $5 a day – creates a boost in happiness levels. Wondering what you can do to increase your happiness level? Since 40% of happiness is subject to selfcontrol, a person’s deliberate choices and intentional activities can amp up cheerfulness and contentment. High-quality social relationships contribute to life satisfaction, and research indicates that married people are generally happier than single ones. Socializing with cheerful people increases the likelihood of being happier. Think happy thoughts! The average woman has 60,000 thoughts a day – can you believe that 48,000 of them are negative? Avoiding “negative self-talk” can improve attitude and enhance happiness. Rather than saying, “I’m not good at this,” try, “What can I do to get better at this?” Substitute “That’s too difficult,” with “I’m going to give it a try.” Replacing negative thoughts with positive ones allows you to focus on all that is good in life. Keeping a journal listing three things that went well each day produces satisfaction and contentment as well. Having an “attitude of gratitude” is one of the best ways to possess emotional well-being. Counting your blessings causes you to consider all that is valuable in your life. Gratitude during the bad times actually helps you cope with and adjust to adversity, helping you bounce back to

that happiness set point. Taking stock of all you have and recalling contributions others have made for you cause you to be more likely to help others and be less materialistic and envious of others, as well as alleviating bitterness. You are what you eat! Did you know that a diet low in fiber has been linked to depression? Likewise, a Vitamin B-12 deficiency can produce irritability and depression. Residents of countries who eat the most fish possess the lowest rates of depression. A wide variety of whole foods provides brain-enhancing nutrients, causing your mind to be sharper and more energized. Too much sugar can contribute to shrinkage in the areas of the brain involved in regulating your moods. Letting go of offenses, anger, and resentment is a sure-fire way to be happier and healthier. Brooding and obsessing over wrongs done to you and refusing to forgive takes its toll on your happiness levels as well as your physical health. Don’t worry, be happy! Worriers experience muscle tension, agitation, irritability, sleep problems, difficulty with concentration, and an inability to relax. They spend much of their time trying to predict the future, and worrying about all that could go wrong. Much of the problem involves trying to solve issues that are not solvable. As Mark Twain said, “I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.” •Increase your positive outlook with random acts of kindness. Research has established that these acts induce positive thoughts and can alleviate negative feelings. It seems that individuals get a strong sense that they’re doing something that matters, and subsequently, mood is enhanced. What about age? Studies have determined that people in their mid- to late-50s are happier, worry less, and have less stress than young adults in their 20s. Part of that finding may be that older people have learned how to control their emotions over the years. Positive mindsets can be elevated by visualizing your “best possible self.” This involves imagining success at your life goals, realization of your life dreams, and achievement of your best potential, followed up with using this to guide your current decisions. Practice optimism! Happy folks look at the bright side of each negative situation and find the silver lining in every black cloud. Unhappy people watch 30% more TV. Happier ones are out socializing, exercising, reading, volunteering, or attending religious services. And along that line, studies show that spiritual and religious people are happier and healthier than others. Regular vigorous exercise reduces stress and contributes to great levels of fulfillment. Joggers are 70% less likely to have a high level of stress and dissatisfaction with life. Just 17 to 34 minutes per day produces a significant difference. Need more good news? Exercise also contributes to lasting cognitive functioning in old age.

www.TrustTidbits.com FAMOUS LANDMARKS OF THE WORLD: ARC DE TRIOMPHE At the western end of Paris’ ChampsElysees on the right bank of the Seine, the regal Arc de Triomphe stands guard over the city. Here are the highlights about this monument, the Arch of Victory, the brainstorm of Napoleon Bonaparte. • Following his most important victory of the Napoleonic Wars, Bonaparte ordered the construction of the Arch in 1805. He intended it as a commemoration to all French soldiers who had fought during the wars, and it was his plan that his soldiers would march through the arch upon their return home. However, it took two years just to lay the foundations, and when Napoleon entered the city in 1810, he came from a different direction. • When the architect of the monument died in 1811, the work was taken over by another for a few years. However, when Napoleon lost power, construction was halted and did not resume until 1833. The Arch was not completed until 1836. Meanwhile, Napoleon died in exile on the island of St. Helena in 1821 and was buried there. In 1840, King Louis Philippe I arranged for Napoleon’s remains to be returned to France and at long last, Napoleon entered Paris through the Arc de Triomphe. • The Arch sits at the center of 12 main avenues which radiate outward. It reaches 162 feet to the sky and is 72 feet deep. • Beneath the vault of the Arch lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, interred there on Armistice Day (November 11) of 1920, to commemorate the signing of the armistice between France and Germany in 1918. Prior to the interment, the Arch was the site of troops parading after military victories, as well as the annual Bastille Day military parade. However, as a sign of respect, parade traffic now marches to the Arch, but then turns to go around its side. A ceremony is held there every November 11. • The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier contains an eternal flame that burns in memory of all the unidentified dead. When President John F. Kennedy and wife Jacqueline visited Paris in 1961, they paid their respects at the Tomb. After JFK’s assassination two years later, Mrs. Kennedy recalled the eternal flame and asked that one be placed at her husband’s grave at Arlington National Cemetery. • Following 1919’s victory parade celebrating the end of World War I, French aviator Charles Godefroy flew his biplane through the Arch, a feat captured on a newsreel.

Prep Player of the Week - Windsor Wizard’s Blake Bunday

Nearly a year removed from winning the 3A state championship, The Windsor Wizards found themselves facing the number one team in 4A for a chance to move on to the 4A semifinals. Most of the year, the Wizards made their transition from 3A to 4A look easy and after winning the 4A northern conference championship and beating Broomfield in the first round of playoffs, they proved they were ready to battle the best in 4A, the number one Pueblo West Cyclones. The Cyclones came into this game undefeated and with arguably the best running back in the state, Derrick Jackson. Jackson rushed for over 2,760 yards this season so to say it would be a challenge stopping him would be an understatement. Though in the first half, it seemed the Wizards would at least contain him with the help of our Loveland Ford Player of the week; Blake Bunday.

The Cyclones received the opening kickoff and

later tried to convert on fourth down but failed to do so, allowing the Wizards to work from a short field. From there, Windsor’s Jordan Porterfield found the end zone in what would start a frenzy of scoring in the first half. Early in the second quarter, things looked good for the Wizards as they took an early lead of 27-12 but Pueblo West utilized their talented running back and solid quarterback, Zac Drury to score 38 unanswered points making the final; Pueblo West 50, Windsor, 27. In the end, Derrick Jackson showed why he is known as one of the top players in Colorado with over 300 yards and four touchdowns. Blake Bunday scored on a 6 yard run with just over a minute in the first quarter, stopped an early two point conversion try by Jackson and had a handful of solid defensive plays making him this week’s Loveland Ford Player of the week. Congratulations to the Wizards on a tremendous season.

omeone asked the other day, “What was your favourite ‘fast food’ when you were growing up?”

“We didn’t have fast food when I was growing up,” I informed him. “All the food was slow.” “C’mon, seriously, where did you eat?” he asked. “It was a place called home,” I explained.! “Mother cooked every day and when Dad got home from work, we sat down together at the dining room table, and if I didn’t like what she put on my plate, I was allowed to sit there until I did like it.” By this time, the lad was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to suffer serious internal damage, so I didn’t tell him the part about how I had to have permission to leave the table. But here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I’d figured his system could have handled it: Some parents NEVER owned their own house, wore jeans, set foot on a golf course, travelled out of the country or had a credit card. My parents never drove me to school... I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed (slow) which I had to pay for with the money I made shoveling snow and mowing lawns. We didn’t have a television in our house until I was almost 20. It was, of course, black and white, and the station went off the air at 10 PM, after playing the national anthem and epilogue; it came

back on the air at about 6 am. And it started with a devotional from a local preacher and was usually followed by a locally produced news and farm show that featured local people. Pizzas were not delivered to our home, but milk was. All newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers. My brother and I deliverednewspapers seven days a week. We had to get up at 6am every morning and Dad refused to drive us on our routes even in the nastiest weather. Film stars kissed with their mouths shut. At least, they did in the films. There were no movie ratings because all movies were responsibly produced for everyone to enjoy viewing, without profanity or violence or almost anything offensive. If you grew up in a generation before there was fast food, you may want to share some of these memories with your children or grandchildren. Just don’t blame Tidbits if they bust a gut laughing.

By Samantha Weaver • It was revered civil-rights leader Mohandas Gandhi who made the following sage observation: “Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err.” • If you’re afraid of rats and mice, you might not want to read the following tidbit: Those who study such things say that 60 percent of all the mammals on earth are rodents. • Athletes playing baseball on steroids have frequently been in the news in recent years, but drugs are nothing new in America’s national sport. During the late 1960s and throughout almost all of the ‘70s, Dock Ellis was a valued pitcher who played for several teams, including the Pittsburgh Pirates. On June 12, 1970, Ellis took LSD, under the mistaken belief that it was an off day for his team. By the time he realized that the Pirates were scheduled to play against the San Diego Padres that evening, it was too late. The drug proved to have no ill effect on Ellis; in fact, he pitched a no-hitter. When he recounted the event to a reporter 12 years later, he said he remembered only bits and pieces of the game, though he felt euphoric. Many years later, after being treated for addiction, Ellis became a coordinator for an anti-drug program in California. • It’s been reported that Albert Einstein did not like to wear socks. • George W. Church, the founder of Church’s Fried Chicken, didn’t actually enter the restaurant business until after he retired. In his first career, Church ran a chicken hatchery and sold incubators. • Historians say that Russia’s Peter the Great was nearly 7 feet tall. *** Thought for the Day: “Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other.

• On Nov. 24, 1849, John Froelich, the inventor of the first internal-combustion tractor, is born in Girard, Iowa. Froelich and investors formed the Waterloo Gasoline Traction Engine Company. The Waterloo Tractor Works, owned by John Deere since 1918, remains one of the largest tractor factories in the United States. • On Nov. 22, 1900, the first car to be produced under the Mercedes name is taken for its inaugural drive in Cannstatt, Germany. The car was specially built for Emil Jellinek, a fan of fast, flashy cars. He bought 36 of them. In exchange, the company agreed to name the car after Jellinek’s 11-year-old daughter, Mercedes. • On Nov. 19, 1915, British airman Richard Bell

Davies performs a daring rescue, swooping down in his plane to whisk a downed fellow pilot from behind the Turkish lines. The British government awarded him the Victoria Cross. • On Nov. 21, 1934, teenager Ella Fitzgerald wins Amateur Night at Harlem’s Apollo Theater.
