Blogging Helps The Mind Stay Active

Keeping your brain fit is no more than giving it something to work out with. Physical exercise helps the total body but we can help the brain out by keeping it busy with learning and expressing our thoughts. Blogging helps the mind stay active because you are learning as you are expressing your thoughts on a subject while giving your brain a workout.

What Works The Brain?

When we read or do anything that requires our brain to process things this gives our brain a workout. This will help us to keep our brain sharp as we age.

If we get stuck in the same routines in our lives this will cause our brains to become stagnant and there is not much work for our brain to do regularly.

One Thing That Will Help

Over this past year, I have started a few websites and they all are different niches. This means that my blogging for each site has me researching information giving my brain some play time.website-building

I am giving my brain a workout not only through reading and gaining information for a blog post but I am also writing about what I have researched which causes me to write out what I have learned.

This causes my brain to have to process this information and put it in writing. This is basically journaling which is said to help your brain get some work.

I found this out in an article from www.medicaldaily.com. If you click on the link you can read where journaling will help you focus your mind and clear it as well. Handwriting is said to help sharpen the mind in this article.

Use Of WiFi Can Protect You

We are in a world of cyber criminals and it makes our internet experience not so comfortable. With all the phishing scams going on we want to protect our information. The use of wifi can protect you a little bit more as you give information on websites.

Netflix Oh No!netflix-logo

Many people enjoy watching Netflix especially with the high cost of cable these days. I recently ran into an article that talked about not one but a second scam encountered on Netflix.

It is a phishing scam designed to get your personal sensitive information as which is the case in all phishing scams.  It comes in the form of a pretty convincing email.

The scary part is that they have made it look as if it came from Netflix themselves.

Should We Panic?

These types of criminals will always be there. But we can’t let the fear keep us from doing what we like.  There are things we can do and rely on to make our experience comfortable.

Some people know to pay attention to the URL. If it has HTTPS: & a  green padlock and says secure it means they have an SSL certificate.

What this does is put an encrypted link between a website and the server which should keep any information private passing between the two. It is said that SSL’s are a good way to protect but is vulnerable as well.

This is pretty scary because our banking and social media websites as many other different sites rely on this SSL to protect us.  So what this tells us is that the chances of something going wrong are minimal.online-banking

We can also strengthen our protection by using our own private WiFi (Personal VPN) which is a virtual private network that encrypts and protects any information coming from your device to the server.

That is a relief to know since we do a lot of banking transactions and some of us use Pay Pal to transfer very sensitive information over the internet.

Below is a video to show you how to get a hotspot shield for your devices if you would like to.

Conclusion

We live in a world where we do a lot over the internet. In every aspect of doing business whether it is physically at a location or either online, we run a risk of our information being pirated by scammers.

We have measures in effect to help offset these things and as fast as a scammer comes up with an idea the idea is usually cut off. That is just the way it is. But we can take measures to keep from losing what we like doing and not being kept from how we do things.
