Mystery Monday!

Today Lilly and I played mystery box and talked about the best ways to declutter your home!

For the mystery box, we did three sense tests before Jason from Butler guessed what was in it, and won that $5 gift card to Troyer’s of Apple Valley and 4 tickets to the AAA Great Vacations Travel Expo!

Here are the questions Lilly asked and the answers I gave, for each test.

Shake Test:

  1. Is this a common household item?  – Yes!
  2. Is this something that I would have in my apartment? – Yes!

Smell Test:

  1. Is this edible? At some point, yes.
  2. Is this a food item that people keep in their cars for emergencies? Not really, they could – but I doubt it.

Touch Test:

  1.  Was the item in this bag chips?  Yes!
  2. (She knew it was a bag right away)

The answer: A empty bag of salt and cracked pepper chips!

A ‘Clean’ Mystery Monday!

Welcome in to another week full of excitement here at WNZR!
Joe had a Food for the Hungry meeting this evening, so Rachel sat in for him today!

The Mystery Box made it’s triumphant return for 2018!
I hid something in the box, and Rachel had to guess what it was!

Rachel, from the shake test, learned that it’s not contained in its’ own box, and that it’s an irreguar shaped item. From the smell test, we learned that this item is used for making yourself smell good. (After we eliminated your house, and your car, we settled on yourself! From the touch test, we learned exactly what it was!|
Congratulations to Linda from Utica!
It was a soap bar shaped like a gemstone!
Pretty neat Christmas gift I got from my friend Megan : )

Our word of the day today was…
Stardust! || noun

1. (not in technical use) a mass of distant stars appearing as tiny particles of dust.
2. a naively romantic quality:

Festival of Sleep Who Knew!

Welcome to the first Who-Knew Wednesday of 2018!
Today, we’re celebrating the Festival of sleep!

The Festival of Sleep day was founded by someone who had a profound and deep love of sleep. Sleep is a basic human function, and helps our bodies to regain energy for the next day, keeping our mind alert and ready for action. During the holidays, things can get crazy, so this holiday was created to let you catch up on those post-holiday Z’s.

Having a lack of sleep can be fatal to the human body and mind, effects caused by little to no sleep over an extended period of time are as follows.

Effect One: Lack of sleep in the modern world can cause people to get into vehicular accidents, which happen daily in large numbers.

Effect Two: Lack of sleep can in fact, dumb you down. As we all know, sleep plays a critical role in our thinking and learning processes. We also know that a lack of sleep hurts these cognitive processes in many ways. First, it impairs attention, alertness, concentration, reasoning, and problem solving. This makes it more difficult to learn efficiently. Secondly, sleep helps to retain memories of the day’s experience. Meaning that with a lack of sleep, we would not remember much of the previous day’s experiences. This makes sleep incredibly important for students, from those in college to those simply trying to learn a new language on their own.

Effect Three: Probably the most dangerous effect from having a long term lack of sleep is it can cause many and deadly health problems. Here are some examples of these problems.

• Heart Disease
• Heart Attack
• Heart Failure
• Irregular Heartbeat
• High Blood Pressure
• Stroke
• Diabetes

Here are some more fun facts about sleep!

  1. In general, most healthy adults need seven to nine hours of sleep a night. However, some individuals are able to function without sleepiness or drowsiness after as little as six hours of sleep. Others can’t perform at their peak unless they’ve slept ten hours.
  2. We naturally feel tired at two different times of the day: about 2:00 AM and 2:00 PM. It is this natural dip in alertness that is primarily responsible for the post-lunch dip.
  3. Sleep is just as important as diet and exercise.
  4. The higher the altitude, the greater the sleep disruption. Generally, sleep disturbance becomes greater at altitudes of 13,200 feet or more. The disturbance is thought to be caused by diminished oxygen levels and accompanying changes in respiration. Most people adjust to new altitudes in approximately two to three weeks.
  5. In general, exercising regularly makes it easier to fall asleep and contributes to sounder sleep. However, exercising sporadically or right before going to bed will make falling asleep more difficult.
  6. Snoring is the primary cause of sleep disruption for approximately 90 million American adults; 37 million on a regular basis.
  7. Scientists still don’t know — and probably never will — if animals dream during REM sleep, as humans do.
  8. People who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to have bigger appetites due to the fact that their leptin levels (leptin is an appetite-regulating hormone) fall, promoting appetite increase.

Thanks for listening!
