Instead, try using your full name so people can remember it easier. We’ve talked about how hard it is to remember people’s names, but we have a nice tip to make it easier for others: Your parents gave you a first and last name for a reason; don’t hesitate to use them both. I’ll be honest here: The first couple times I tried this, I felt kind of 3 . After all, who cares about my full name? But you’d be surprised at how differently people treat you when you say your first and last name. It’s memorable, it’s powerful, and it’s the difference between making a lackluster connection and a surprisingly great one. You might think it’s too formal to use your full name, but the goal here is to make it easier for others to remember you. After all they probably know people with your first name, but no one with both your first and last name. 2.

Source 3 TEXT Should I keep my smartphone and tablet out of my bedroom? 1 Our being accessible all the time may not be as great as we think it is. More than 80% of people with smartphones have them switched on all the time, including in bed. Mobiles or tablets often get used as alarm clocks, but once on the bedside table they’re a terrible temptation for one final text or email after the light goes out. But even if you don’t use your device it may disrupt your sleep. A small study of tablets (used by 13 volunteers aged 20) from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York found that the light from these sources suppresses the body’s melatonin levels by 23% when used for two hours before bedtime. The authors speculated that since melatonin levels reflect how dark it is outside and tell the body how ready it should be for sleep, tablets may contribute to insomnia. 2 A laboratory in the USA advises not to use a tablet before bed, even just to read, 7 the light shines directly into your eyes. If you read with a lamp however, the light points down. Last week research from the Mayo Clinic in Arizona, published in the journal Sleep, suggested that turning down the light on these devices could reduce melatonin suppression and improve sleepiness. So can you stack your mobile devices back on your bedside table after all? 3 Doing anything stimulating before going to bed – reading with a light in your face, answering emails – increases insomnia. Good sleep hygiene means relaxing in a dark room without noise. Other studies have shown that using mobile phones and tablets too much – however much that is, and wherever it is done – causes disturbed sleep and depression, especially in young people. Being accessible all the time may not be as great as we think it is. And we should definitely be more selective about how much of the outside world gets into our bedrooms. The Guardian, 2013 3.
