5 Actionable Tips to Become a Professional Player in Darts

5 Actionable Tips to Become a Professional Player in Darts

Image

It is possible to gain the right mastery that will help you become a professional player in darts. Some of the things that we will share are well known to you, but we will be emphasizing on some of the things that you may not have taken too seriously. It is essential to take your game to new heights by paying the requisite price.

 

5 Actionable Tips

 

Use the best darts: We have reviewed some of the best darts on Peak Picker, but we will like to make some positions clear in this piece. Every player has a responsibility to determine the tools that they intend to use. You may purchase the most expensive dart, and it may not give you the results that you desire. On the other hand, you can get the cheapest darts and hit scores that will really amaze you. In everything, people must be aware that it is ideal to give yourself the right platform that will enable you rise to the top. Each of the accessories that you use can determine what will happen to your game. It is perfect that you follow some professional reviews that will help you pick good darts.

 

Practice: You must note that it takes an average of 10,000 hours practice in any field for you to rise to the top. As huge as this figure may stand, you can work out a practice time that can fit your daily life experiences. It will not be long before you start hitting scores that will amaze you. Most people who have decided to create the discipline of practice attest to the fact that they discovered that it got easier as time progressed. You must not start working to become an international champion right away. Simply set your target to hit the highest possible score based on your current level, and you are on your path to the top. A few rituals might help you keep to your practice such as finding a way to reward yourself if you invest the required hours of practice that you have set for a given day.

 

Participate in tournaments: There is no need to keep drilling yourself if you are not going to test your skills on a higher scale. When we talk about tournaments, it must not be a globally renowned competition. You can call your friends and loved ones to a duel, and this will help to improve your skill and confidence. There are times when you can take things to the next level by participating in a local competition. The goal is not to win the gold medal but to help you on your journey to becoming the greatest that you can be. Time and again, people have realized that they could be more and do more as they stretched their talent to compete with some of the best hands in their area.

 

Read: You have to read widely about the techniques that professionals use when they play the game of darts. This knowledge can help you determine the things that you need to imbibe and the things that you need to avoid. You must not take things for granted because single information can make or break the status of your game.

Connect: Look for ways to connect with other professionals that will help you become better at what you do. You can follow their social media page, and you can look for communities that will challenge you in a healthy form. There must be something that will keep driving you positively till you reach your goal.

5 Things that Put a Huge Strain on Your Relationship

5 Things that Put a Huge Strain on Your Relationship

Long-term relationships are hard work. When we’re young, we dream of finding our soul mate, settling down and living happily ever after; we don’t think about the work that goes into making a relationship work. But, it does take effort, and it’s important to realize this so that you don’t just give up at the first sign of trouble. Even the happiest of marriages have the occasional blip; it’s how you come through them that makes you perfect for each other. What makes a relationship work is different for all of us, but there are a few things that almost universally put a strain on them. That’s not to say that these things should be avoided, just that you should be prepared and give your relationship more time and attention when it needs it.

 

The Internet

This is a huge change that modern relationships are facing. Our parents and grandparents either spent time together, or they didn’t. In today’s society, we spend time together, sat next to each other in fact, giving our phones and social media feeds all of our attention. We sit together, sharing our day with strangers online, barely communicating at all.

 

Social media, the internet and smartphones are fantastic tools. But, when you start giving them more attention that you give the people in your home, it’s time to take a step back. Leave your phones in other rooms occasionally and give each other your full attention.

 

Moving to A New House

 

Moving to a new house is tough. It takes a lot of time, effort and hard work, and your relationship can easily get neglected, especially if you don’t 100% agree on your new home or your reasons for moving. Try to make sure you are on the same page, talk everything through, be honest with each other and use a removalist to make sure the move itself is as easy and stress-free as possible.

 

Vacations

 

Vacations should be a fantastic stress-free time. In reality, they’re often not. We put huge amounts of pressure on ourselves and each other to have a great time, which can cause arguments and friction. Instead, be spontaneous, and relax. Just enjoy being together away from home.

 

Money

Money is one of the leading causes of arguments in most marriages. We worry about it, we argue about it, we disagree on what to do with it, and if we haven’t got enough of it, we lay blame with each other. It’s important to start as you mean to go on with money. Always be honest and talk to your partner about what’s going on and never rush into a financial decision without consulting them first, even if it’s your money.

 

Family

Family is another cause of strain in relationships. If you get on with each other’s family and enjoy spending equal time with both sides, then you should count yourself lucky. For many of us, it’s a constant battle. Learn to compromise, and to bite your lip for the good of your relationship.

Find Motivation in Minutes

By Celebrity Guest, Patrick Manifold, Professional Basketball Player and Life Coach

Find Motivation in Minutes

Image from http://www.patrickmanifold.com/

My biggest motivation for me personally is my goals, which together form the vision of the man I want to become. That guy is easily my biggest motivation! I truly love my life now… but his life looks absolutely incredible! So every single day that vision motivates me and inspires me to keep putting in the work I need to in order to make that vision a reality.

In the past I struggled with being happy along the way, and for some silly reason I only allowed myself to be truly happy when I had achieved something amazing, which of course was only sporadically, setting myself up for months of unhappiness. But over the last four or five years I have really made the conscious decision to enjoy every step along the way.

It’s true what they say, it is as much about the journey as it is the destination. So for anyone out there like me who is super ambitious, please remember that you can allow yourself to be happy every single day, just by making the conscious decision to do so.

During a recent interview I was asked why so many people are not motivated in life. I stated that the reason so many people are unmotivated about life is because they don’t have anything in their lives to be motivated about. If you don’t have goals, or things you want to do or achieve, or things that you truly love doing, then there is no way you are going to be jumping out of bed excited about life to get to work every day.

As you probably know I am the founder of a full-service personal development called ‘Manifold Motivation’ and as our name suggests, we specialize in motivation. I think that motivation is both an art and a science, or a ‘why’ and a ‘how’ as I often describe it.

The reason one thing motivates some and not others has to do with our unique emotional triggers. When I am working with a client who has ambition to do something, but can’t seem to find the motivation, I use certain techniques to find out what really matters to them. I ask them questions that delve deeper and deeper into their ‘why’. Once I have done this and got some results it is far easier for that person to make progress towards their goals, as they’re no longer battling against feeling unmotivated. Instead they can focus all their energy on the important tasks at hand.

The next step is that after you have figured out your ‘why’, you then have to find your ‘how’. This will act as your ‘motivational hacks’ to jump start you when you’re feeling lazy or uninspired. For me, I have lots of hacks for various areas of my life, and they are all equally important to my productivity. You have to find your own ‘how’, and your own ‘hacks’, but only you have the keys to unlocking what those are.

So if I could offer any advice to someone struggling with motivation I would tell them that firstly, they have to find a ‘why’ that truly drives them and inspires them to take action. And secondly, I would tell them to work to find different hacks they can use that they know will motivate them in minutes. You can either do these things yourself, or you can hire someone to help you get there faster, but regardless of the route you take, make sure you do something, because there is a door that leads to all the places you have ever dreamed of; but the key to unlocking that door is your motivation.

So you see, the secret to motivation is having a powerful ‘why’ and an intelligent ‘how’. These two elements form the art and science of human motivation, and that’s the quickest way to get you from you are to where you want to be.

How to Drink Without Getting Drunk before Midnight

By Guest Blogger, Neil W.

How to Drink Without Getting Drunk before Midnight

The history shows proof that fruit juice, honey and fermented grain were responsible for alcoholic beverages for thousands of years.

Chinese consumed alcohol since around 7000 B.C., and early Egyptian civilization shows the signs of fermented drinks. Sura, beverage distilled from rice was the drink of choice in India between 3000 and 2000 B.C.  The first alcoholic beverage in Greece was mead, and there are warnings against the perils of too much drinking.

Native American civilizations made alcoholic drinks from grapes, corn or apples called “chicha”. In rainforests of Peru, the local tribes made Masato. This is a beverage made of chewed yucca spit into the jars for fermentation. Even today, the locals use this practice and saying no to a glass of Masato is very rude in Amazonia.

Alcohol is a mood altering substance and it makes people act differently because it affects the part of the brain for self-control. When you have a drink, the alcohol enters your bloodstream. Ethanol, the part of beverage that makes you intoxicated, is made of very small molecules.

Because of this, its molecules can reach and interfere with the neurotransmitters responsible for brain activity. This can cause the loss of control, vomiting and in severe cases admittance to the hospital and even death.

There are several things you can do to avoid getting drunk, at least before midnight, and here are some of them.

One teaspoon of yeast

Jim Koch, co-founder of the Boston Beer Company, said in an Esquire interview that he could drink all night and not get drunk. His secret lies in the active yeast. Namely, one teaspoon of dry yeast before every beer of the evening.

Scientifically, the yeast contains a dehydrogenase (ADH) enzyme which breaks down alcohol. Of course, this enzyme can’t negate the effects of alcohol but only mitigate them. Moreover, depending on the body type, gender, weight, genetics and some other factors, this method might not affect you the way you want. It’s important to note that this involves an ordinary yeast used for baking and found in every grocery store.

Eat first

One of the most usual advice you heard was to eat before you drink. Nevertheless, not every food will do the trick. Salads, for instance, most certainly won’t, but greasy and fatty meals will. Fat serves as a buffer to the alcohol and due to this, it will enter your bloodstream more slowly. 

So, if you try to eat healthily, you’ll be happy about this method since involves eating fast food and pizza. Ice cream and milkshakes may help a little since dairy also slows down the alcohol. Nuts and bacon are also an option, as are some more fatty meats. But, on the other hand, the olive oil won’t work. It may save a life if the snake bites someone, but you’ll still get drunk as usual if you take it.

Water down your drinks

This advice assumes that you like mixed drinks, like the ones with alcohol and soda or juice. This includes some cocktails, but not those made with more than one alcoholic drink. The point here is to pour more non-alcoholic beverage than the alcoholic one. You will still feel the effect but they’ll come slowly or you’ll have to drink more than usual to really get drunk.

Beer, wine, whiskey and other drinks drank alone can be watered down, too. You can put lemon juice in beer, ice cubes, club soda or sparkling water in wine and whiskey. This will influence the taste so it won’t have the same intensity. Also, it will increase the quantity of the drink and you’ll drink it longer, or will reduce the alcohol ratio.

Glass of water with every drink

Water will not prevent you from getting drunk scientifically, but practically. Namely, order a glass of the alcohol drink of your choice and a glass of water. Sip the water between every time you take a drink of your alcoholic beverage. The idea here is to make you drink less by tricking you with drinking more fluids.

Additionally, water is great for hangovers. Alcohol will dehydrate your body, and that’s the main cause of a headache in the morning. Drinking a lot of water will help you prevent this and feel better when you wake up.

Stretch the drinks

The biggest problem you’ll have is if you are a fast drinker. Stretching the drinks needs control and focus, something people who go out and want to have fun mostly leave at home. You can motivate yourself by ordering something expensive, and thus make yourself drink it slowly. In addition, you can try something exotic and savour it.

If you’re in the nightclub or at the party with kombi bar and DJ hire, you can dance and distract yourself from drinking. Another great way to prevent yourself from drinking fast is if you talk to people during parties and special events. If you need alcohol to loosen up before mingling and meeting new people, still stay as long as possible on the first drink. Remember that being drunken influences your personality and therefore you might be a bad company everyone will avoid.

In the end

Always ask yourself why you drink and are going to get drunk. Most people drink fast, imitate what others are doing or plainly need something to feel more relaxed. These are all manageable instances. Also, remember that there is never a good reason to get drunk.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a drink here and there, but drinking too much frequently points to underlying problems, which alcohol won’t solve. So choose life and drink moderately.

Holiday Gift Wish List- Hoverboard: The Way of The Future?

Holiday Gift Wish List- Hoverboard: The Way of The Future?

We always get questions on gift giving, so we decided to take a deeper look into certain top gifts of the year and share our finds with you.

Hoverboard is gaining popularity in the recent years. Hoverboard is the technology and the transportation of the future. However, the hoverboard that we are using is a far cry from the exciting hoverboard which is popular in the science fiction such as: Back to the Future series, where we can see that Marty McFly steps on to a pink coloured hoverboard in Back to the Future in 1989, which actually hovers in the air. This hoverboard can be rather termed as a smart scooter board. The hoverboard that we are currently using use wheels to move. New and advanced technology is constantly being used for improving and to come up with the actual hoverboard that hovers in the air. The question is, is the hoverboard the way of the future? To know more, this article will take a look at hoverboard: the way of the future.

A look at hoverboard as the method of future transportation:

The manufacturers are hopeful that the hoverboard will continue to be the top seller in the coming years, even though there are some safety concerns related to the present hoverboard. There are definitely some safety regulations and standards that the hoverboard will need to meet. Without the safety standards, it may lose its popularity with the customers as safety is extremely important. However, the good news is that this issue is being addressed by the hoverboard manufacturers.

New features are also being researched and included into the hoverboard. Soon, hoverboard will become more than a transportation device. One of the manufacturers, IO Hawk is working to include a feature which will enable the user to turn the scooter into a Wi-Fi hotspot. This means, the user can access and use internet anywhere they are using the hoverboard. This will transform the functionality of the hoverboard and the way we use hoverboard. One of the companies, Lexus is currently working and has been working with a hoverboard design for a long period of time, where cold temperatures are used for manufacturing the magnetic field which will allow the hoverboard to remain afloat. However, this design still requires a lot of upgrading and research to be done. Even if this design is not complete, it is definitely one step ahead for the future of this amazing device.

The tricky part is how the board will be powered currently and as it is seen on back to the future movie, the future hoverboard is powered with extremely powerful magnets. The technology of the future hoverboard can also change the way we view and use our current vehicles. In fact, wheels can be phased out with the rise of the new hoverboard technology if it is developed.

In short, no one actually knows when the actual hoverboard, similar to the one that Marty McFly flew in Back to the Future in 1989 will be manufactured. But one thing can be said for sure that with the new technological advancements that are being made, the real hoverboard is not far from development.

5 Tips for Planning a Memorable Family Vacation on a Budget 

By Guest Blogger, Mathews M.

5 Tips for Planning a Memorable Family Vacation on a Budget

A memorable family vacation does not mean you have to break the bank. If you ask me, some of the best vacation moments are those that are the least extravagant and luxurious. Plan ahead when it comes to where to go, what to bring, and what to do once you arrive at the destination. This is the key to managing the money properly and at the same time, having the family time of your life.  Of course, you are going to need to work together to keep the vacation on track with the budget.

Here are some tried-and-tested tips to keep things under control.

A game plan

To jumpstart the process of planning, gather as much information as you can. Use this as a reality check to validate your expectations. Select your destination based on research or the recommendations you receive. Try to think outside the box. Ensure that the whole family is onboard when it comes to the budget and travel itinerary: have an open conversation about everything.

In particular, let the kids get familiar with the activities and attractions that could tickle them pink and naturally, give preference and book those that are free or nearly-free.

Time on your side

Many people overlook that timing has an important role to play and that being flexible about it is something that pays dividends aplenty. Traveling prices are all about supply and demand. So, if you book your accommodation just before or after peak season, you should be able to snatch some good deals, for example through a series of spring flash sales.

Steer away from unnecessary expenses and those that take a big bite out of your budget and find an affordable family getaway on time. Then again, note that last-minute traveling can also turn out to be a huge money-saver.

Eat your way to frugality

To squeeze out extra value from your vacation, save money on food. One way to do so is to carry a picnic kit with you as well as to prepare wholesome meals back home. Furthermore, limit yourself to eating just one meal per day in a restaurant (the kids dislike sitting at them anyway). To make this happen, make sure you always stay at a place with a fridge and kitchen.

Hotels that offer a free breakfast are worth your attention as well. Finally, remember to always keep yourself hydrated with reusable water bottles.

Handling the transportation

The most economical vacations entail your family hitting the road in a car or opting for a fly-and-drive trip. In the latter case, take advantage of airfare bargains. Of course, driving your own vehicle is preferable, but you still need to spend some money on gas.

To trim spending in this area, never leave the motor idle during stops and refrain from satisfying your need for speed. Keep your eyes on your fluid levels and purchase quality oil products online from brands like Castrol. Also, make sure to have spare wheels and maintain an adequate tire pressure.

What about accommodation

You may not fancy it, but camping is one of the most frugal ways to organize a vacation and it can also be one of the most rewarding family adventures. Wilderness areas and national parks provide plenty of thrilling opportunities for hiking, canoeing, horseback riding, outdoor recreation, etc.

You can have magical moments sitting around a crackling campfire under the star-studded night sky. Just make sure you take as many home comforts with you as you can. And in case camping is not up your alley, consider cheap motels and hotels.

The world is your oyster

The meat of your plan revolves around keeping down the costs, not impeding your experience and enjoyment. Thus, tackle the major areas of vacation spending and identify smart ways of navigating the minefield of financial decisions.

Do not spend more than you can comfortably afford. Know your destination and route like the palm of your hand. Make good use of money-saving deals. Why go to an expensive theme park if you can spend a comfy morning in a hotel bed, watching cartoons together?

Making Romance Last In The Long-Term

Making Romance Last In The Long-Term

Picture Source

Romantic relationships are hard to keep afloat. Loving one another isn’t enough; you have to be ready for the hard work involved with keeping a relationship going. Once that honeymoon period fizzles out, you have to be ready for the occasional bouts of bickering and disagreements that come with being truly close to another person. Struggling to keep that romance alive in the long-term? Here are some helpful pointers that might just help you and your partner to stop tearing out one another’s hair.

Talk to one another.

First of all, you and your loved one need to practice talking to one another more frequently. Yes, you most likely “talk” plenty about how your days went and most likely know how to hold a general conversation if you’re in a committed long-term relationship. However, there’s a difference between a casual chat and confronting serious issues. A lot of couples try to avoid arguments by any means necessary but they do so at the cost of their happiness. It’s vital that you become better at talking through your relationship troubles.

Switching things up can make things easier. You could look into getting help from a therapist if you’re really struggling to communicate with your partner. A professional can help to facilitate your conversation. Conflict may be uncomfortable but it’s entirely necessary if you want to have a healthy relationship with your partner. You need to address those difficult issues so that you can work past them rather than letting resentment fester beneath the surface. That’s how issues surface further down the line in a destructive manner; it’s better to confront problems whilst they’re still minor issues.

Flirt with one another.

This might seem like a strange point but it’s one of the most important. If you want to keep your romance alive in the long-term then you and your partner need to flirt with one another. Flirting isn’t something you reserve for dating and then give up once you’ve managed to get into a committed relationship. You need to take the time to flirt so as to display your love and affection for one another. Give your partner the occasional compliment and you’ll make their day. Supporting your loved one is all about the little things.

Spend time with and without one another.

This might seem like a confusing point on which to end but it makes sense. Everything in life should be done in moderation and relationships are no different. Humans are strange, in many ways; we crave socialness but we also love some alone time. Even your favorite people in the world can drive you crazy if you spend too much time with them and this extends to your partner. That’s why you need to create some ‘me’ time. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder, so you’ll certainly be happy to see your partner after spending a weekend visiting relatives or even a night out with your buddies. Of course, you don’t want to go to the other extreme; make sure you do find some time (at least once a week) to have a romantic meal or day out with your partner.

How to Setup a Hookah

How to Setup a Hookah

 

Shishas which are also known as hookahs are traditional Middle Eastern devices that were used by people to inhale smoke. The hookahs are now famous across the world in many countries. Enjoying hookah when you are at a lounge or a café is one thing but what if you are looking into buying and setting up your own? If you are looking for a guide to setting up your hookah, then this guide that Shisha Heart provided is your best option!

Step 1: Clean the hookah

Before using the hookah, you should use water and a soft brush to clean the hookah (if it is the first time using it). Do this for every part of it. Once you finish washing it leave it for 3-5 minutes to settle.

Step 2: Pour cold water and some ice cubes into the vase.

Pour enough cold water and add ice cubes until one inch of the metal stem Is covered (slightly more does not hurt).

Step 3: Place the hookah shaft into the glass base.

Slowly press the shaft into the base, so the metal stem is in the water (1 inch or more). If the rubber does not fit, you can add a bit of water and dish soap to ease it in.

Step 4: Connect the hoses

Insert the hoses in the holes on the side of the metal shaft. Precisely as the base those holes should fit tight. Failing to install them correctly, will result in air leakage and the hookah will lack performance.

Step 5: Check the air flow.

Place your hand on the top of the shisha stem and try to block the entrance of the air in the hookah. Then you should inhale through the hose. If you manage to inhale any air, it means that a connection does not fit correctly and you should check them all and try again. If you still manage to inhale air, then it means that probably one of your seals is broken and you should probably need a replacement.

Step 6: Place the metal tray on top of the Shisha shaft.

This metal tray is responsible for catching the ashes or coals when they fell off the hookah.

Step 7: Stir and mix the shisha.

Shisha flavor is tobacco that is marinated in liquids which contain specific flavors. The fluids often settle to the bottom of the package. Therefore, you should try to stir them before adding the flavor to your hookah.

Step 8: Break up the shisha and place it in the bowl.

Plump up chunks of the shisha flavor (to allow airflow) and add them to the bowl. Fill the container nearly to the top. Overfilling the pan will result in burned taste. Press the chunks a bit to make them flat.

Step 9: Cover the bowl with foil.

 

Place a stretched piece of foil on the top of the container bowl. Compress it around the edges of the pan. You can also use a coal screen for this purpose. However, most hookah lovers prefer the foil. After this pole several holes with a toothpick. The optimal number of holes is 12. When you finish with the bowl, place it on the top of the shaft.

Step 10: Light some coals.

If you use quick burn coals, you should hold them with tongs over a nonflammable are and light them with a lighter.

If you are using natural coals, you should place them directly on a stove or electric burner for 10-12 minutes.

Step 11: Transfer the coals to the foil

Place two or three coals on the foil. Allow 3-5 minutes before starting to inhale. A common mistake that many hookah lovers are doing is placing the coals in the center. Putting coals in the middle burns the shisha flavor and results to a short session.

Step 12: Enjoy your session

The procedure of setting up your hookah will get quicker over time. Now it is time to relax and enjoy smoking your hookah.
