How To Ask for a Favor Professionally


Requesting a favor can go better if you throw in a bit of professionalism at it. No one is asking that you take classes in begging – we simply are interested in conferring on you those skills and behavioral attributes that will keep everyone from saying ‘No’ to you. However, this doesn’t confer on anyone the feeling of entitlement. People are allowed to say ‘No’ which is one skill you need for asking a favor.

Below are ways to increase your chances of getting more positive answers in 2021.

Provide Value With Your Requests

A larger percent of humanity are individualistic, only freeing their resources for what benefits them. Contrary to popular belief, this trait is good and necessary to keep humans in existence. You’re more likely to have your request granted if it presents value to the other party. So don’t be selfish and include something for the other person while you beg.

Be Positive

Mentality is the most important thing in getting your request granted. Before approaching the other person, first, develop a positive mind that your request will be granted. This kind of positivity radiates the room, thereby, increasing the chances of having your request granted.

Be Truthful

Don’t contort stories when asking for a favor. Lying is a turnoff for most people and can kill your chances when discovered. Always speak the truth and state the exact reasons why you need such favor.

How to Perform a Digestive Massage for Gut Health


Although their functions are quite different, the stomach is somewhat similar to the brain. Just as stress wears out the brain and can cause exhaustion, panic attacks and other mental issues can also harm the stomach in many ways.

Stress can cause a buildup of inflammation in the gut, impede digestion, and result in gastrointestinal complications such as diarrhea, constipation, and bloating. However, health experts recommend a two-minute stomach massage before meal to help ameliorate indigestion and relax abdominal muscles for improved digestion.

This easy stomach massage also helps to relax the nervous system, and prepares the gut before mealtime. Here’s how to perform an abdominal massage that allays constipation and indigestion.

  1. Lie on your back on a flat surface such as yoga mat with knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
  2. Place your right hand on your stomach and inhale deeply three times. Try to release any tension stored in your abdomen.
  3. Using your right hand, slowly make wide clockwise circles across your abdomen and its sides.
  4. Apply gentle pressure to areas that feel tender. Move from the left to right side of your abdomen and then along the bottom of your rib cage. Repeat until the tight areas of your abdomen feel relaxed. Ensure that you deeply inhale and exhale throughout the massage.
  5. Repeat step 1, then switch hands and repeat the entire procedure with your left hand.
