[article] 10 common nicknames explained

Why is Chuck from Charles?

“Dear Chuck” was an English term of endearment and Shakespeare, in Macbeth, used the phrase to refer to Lady Macbeth. What’s this have to do with Charles? Not much, but it’s interesting. However, Charles in Middle English was Chukken and that’s probably where the nickname was born. Maybe a drunken Charles from that period is responsible for the slang, up-chuck.read the article here (the origins of 10 nicknames)

[article] rest better in less time

Image
Get rid of the temptation to treat your bed like anything other than a recharging station. You won’t need books by your bed. You won’t need fancy pillows (unless your doctor says you must). Your bed is a place to help you get from wake to wake in as little time as possible with optimum rest. If you’re young like me the mattress won’t be such a big deal. If you’re over 40 you’ll want to make sure you’ve got a good mattress though.from lifehack, click to see more tips on how to sleep better
