4 Packing Hacks to Lighten Your Suitcase

By | JIFUtravel, Travel Motivation, Travel Tips | No Comments

As we gear up to travel and explore, let’s begin thinking about how to pack efficiently. These tips are courtesy of Travel and Leisure.

Pack for a week

“McAlpin suggests packing a week's worth of clothes, even if your trip is longer, and washing necessary items along the way.”

Travel and Leisure
 Pack around one basic color

“Whether it’s black, navy, or olive green, McAlpin recommends choosing one basic color to pack around. "It's an old rule of thumb, but it really works," she said. But even if you're simplifying your clothing choices to save space, you don't have to completely sacrifice style. McAlpin suggests taking the opportunity to use accessories to mix up your outfits”

McAlpin
Don’t pack any more than three pairs of shoes

“According to McAlpin, people often overpack shoes, but setting a maximum of three pairs will help you pare down your wardrobe and avoid overpacking. Always pack shoes at the bottom of your suitcase near the wheels in order to distribute weight evenly and reduce strain on your back and shoulders.”

Travel and Leisure
Use compression cubes and bags

“Packing cubes are a popular travel accessory, although cubes that involve compression technology will not only keep you organized, but they'll also help you save space in your luggage. Similarly, compression plastic bags that remove excess air are perfect for storing puffer jackets or other bulky gear. McAlpin also recommends using one compression bag for laundry at the end of your trip in order to keep dirty and clean clothes separate and to lock in odors.

Understanding Instagram’s Algorithm

By | JIFU Success | No Comments

Instagram’s algorithm is what controls who sees the things you post and when they see them. Basically, it is the all-holy omnipresent god of one of the most popular social media platforms in the world. 

What is an Algorithm

 Technically speaking, an algorithm is “the set of rules a machine (and especially a computer) follows to achieve a particular goal”. This does not necessarily only apply to machinery or computers but in the case of social media, it does. 

The goal of Facebook’s (who owns Instagram) algorithm is very simple: Keep you on their website or app as long as possible. Despite the goal being obvious, their method is not. This is purposeful because the company does not want to give away its most powerful tool for capturing the attention of consumers.

The Algorithm’s Impact

There are five main parts of Instagram that are impacted and manipulated by the algorithm: feed posts, stories, the Explore page, IGTV videos, and Reels. Our main focus in this article will be on feed posts because that is the most popular way to distribute content.

First: a little background. For the vast majority of Instagram’s life, users saw posts based in reverse chronological order. Then, in 2016, the corporation changed its methods, citing usability errors.

Understanding the coding that goes into managing 1 billion+ user’s content can help you maximize Instagram as a tool and set yourself apart from everyone else. Instagram claims there are 6 key factors that influence its algorithm for feed posts:

  • Interest
  • Relationship
  • Timeliness
  • Frequency
  • Following
  • Usage

Maximizing the Six Key Factors

Straight from the horse's mouth: These are the key ingredients to becoming the Instagram mogul of your dreams. Remember, these things take time!

Interest

One of the most important things utilized by Instagram is the data collected by their software as it relates to interests. This is collected through information like who you follow, the posts you like, the people who most frequently like your posts, and posts that you search for.

Relationship

The next piece of data that the algorithm uses is what accounts you seem to interact with and have a priority relationship with. For example, Instagram will show you posts from accounts that you have searched for recently, tagged in your own posts, and generally interacted with on a regular basis.

Timeliness

While Instagram has strayed away from chronological order, the algorithm is still likely to show recent posts. They may not appear in order of when they were posted, but time is still a factor.

Frequency

Users that are Instagram lovers and frequent scrollers are more likely to see something that was just posted than inactive users. It is best to make sure that your follower base is mostly active users because this will increase post-interaction.

Following

It is best to make sure that your follower base is mostly active users because this will increase post-interaction.

Usage

It is best to make sure that your follower base is mostly active users because this will increase post-interaction.

These are just a few simple tips to get started growing your Instagram following and increase your post-interaction. Be sure to leave a comment letting us know if you want similar tips for IG Stories, Reels, and IGTV videos!

Are Superfoods Really Super?

By | JIFU Success, Personal Development, Uncategorized | No Comments

Superfoods: trendy, healthy, and beautiful to look at. But do they live up to the hype? What’s the big deal about some fruits and veggies? Superfoods are potent sources of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and other nutrients. Because of this, foods that fall under this category are, indeed, super! 

What are Superfoods?

Many berries and dark leafy greens are thought to be superfoods: high in nutrients and low in calories. They are often called superfoods because they pack a mighty punch when it comes to delivering the nutrition that your body needs to operate at a high level. Some of the most popular superfoods include dark leafy greens (kale and spinach), and all your favorite berries. Other fan favorites include garlic, wheatgrass, beets and beet juice, turmeric, Brazil nuts, and barley. 

Dark Leafy Greens

Berries

Beets

Green Tea/Herbs

Best Benefits

As mentioned before, superfoods have a high nutrient density. These foods are often rich in vitamins A, C, E, and K and many B vitamins. Additionally, dark leafy greens like spinach and kale are high in fiber and water content. These components promote a healthy and regular digestive tract.

Consuming foods that are high in antioxidants helps fight free radicals that can damage tissues in your body. It can be hard to take in all the nutrients your body needs in an everyday diet, but superfoods can help you get there. 

Healthy Diet

Shy away from processed foods and foods that void of color. Try your best to include as many colors into your diet, and the chances are that at least one of them will end up being a superfood! Incorporating superfoods into your everyday diet will increase the sustainability of your health. 

Sprinkle shredded leafy greens in soups or throw some blueberries into your breakfast to start the day in a healthy way. There are endless ways to incorporate superfoods into the diet that you already have!

If you are having a hard time buying fresh fruits and vegetables, we have a simple and easy way to consume 23 superfoods in one single swig!

Most People Are Addicted to THIS and Don’t Even Know it

By | JIFU Success, Personal Development | No Comments

One addictive substance plagues nearly all of humanity. It is something that is consumed on a daily basis, and most of the time people do not even know they’re doing it. It’s not illegal, controversial, or even uncommon. What is it?

 

The substance is sugar, and it is in most food that Americans consume every day. The World Health Organization recommends that the average person limit their sugar consumption to no more than six teaspoons or 25 grams of sugar per day for women and nine teaspoons per day for men. Despite this, the average American consumes 17 teaspoons of sugar every day, far exceeding the suggested portion. 

It is difficult to cut out sugar because it is snuck into food products that aren’t necessarily sweet. For example, things like bread, tomato sauce, crackers, and energy bars generally have quite a bit of sugar. UCSF estimates that a leading brand of yogurt has 7 teaspoons of sugar in one single serving! Additionally, sugar is extremely addictive. Consumers become addicted to sugar without even realizing what is happening. 

The accidental overconsumption of sugar is a major contributing factor to many people’s unexplainable weight gain. There are several things that you can do to reduce your sugar intake. 

  1. Be more aware of the ingredients in the food that makes up your diet. 

  2. Exercise more often

  3. Say YES to a little help

RealW8* is a supplement that helps users control their sugar cravings because everyone could use a little help in defeating this all-too-common addiction. With its three proprietary ingredients, RealW8 stops that little urge to have just one more right in its tracks. 

Even better, you can buy it exclusively on JIFUshop.com for a newly discounted price!

Cryptocurrency ATMs Explained

By | Financial Success, JIFUcoin | No Comments

You may have never heard of a cryptocurrency ATM, but they are starting to pop up in crypto hotspots all over the world. Despite its name, a cryptocurrency ATM is not the same as a regular automated teller machine (ATM). What is the same, however, is the concept of a kiosk hardware machine. Here, we will explain the basics of cryptocurrency ATMs to use them to your advantage better. 

According to Investopedia, there are over 14,000 bitcoin ATMs worldwide, and the number is only growing. Coin ATM Radar estimates that there are over 12,000 cryptocurrency ATMs in the United States. This is compared to the previous year when there were only 6,700 in the US. This trend exemplifies the increased usability of cryptocurrency. 

Basic Functions 

 These “ATMs” primary function is to allow public users to buy or sell cryptocurrencies for a terminal. The cryptocurrency ATMs are connected to the internet to execute the process. 

The vast majority of these machines allow users to use cash or debit cards to buy cryptocurrency. Some will even give you cash if you sell your coin using the device. Because financial institutions do not operate cryptocurrency ATMs, they do not connect with users’ bank accounts. 

How it works 

The kiosks are all connected to the bitcoin network. A typical transaction will go as follows:

  1. Buyers scan a QR code that is connected to their e-wallet address.
  2. Purchased coins are transferred to the e-wallet.
  3. The record of the purchase will appear in the wallet a few minutes after purchase.

It’s that simple!

Like a regular ATM, cryptocurrency ATMs charge a service fee for each transaction—most of the time, the ATM charges by percentage. Because of the service fee, buyers often receive a better value for their money when using regular trade sites like Coinbase. 

Using these sites is most often recommended, but the ATMs’ existence increases the accessibility of cryptocurrency tokens. In turn, this could increase the utility and value of the coin. 

New pieces of technology are being developed every day to capitalize on or increase the incredible usability of cryptocurrency. JIFU wants you to be educated and up-to-date, so be sure to check back frequently for more information!

Basic Meditation Tricks for Motivation

By | JIFU Success | 2 Comments

To be successful in any industry, you need to have a single-minded approach to your business and professional goals. Even when it comes to your personal life, true happiness often misses people who lack dedication to creating healthy habits. Meditation can help those who practice it focus on what is most important to them, and ultimately take the steps to make it happen. 

Successful people like Oprah Winfrey, Bill Ford, and Jeff Weiner are just a few examples of successful people who attribute their continued success, at least partially, to mediation. Weiner is the CEO of one of the most successful professional social networks, LinkedIn, and has often be quoted touting the powers of mediation. 

Part of the key to time management is carving out time to think, as opposed to constantly reacting

Rise With the Sun

Most reputable sources claim that meditation is most effective when done in the morning, at a consistent time. This way, you start your day off with positive energy and a clear head, ready to tackle the day ahead of you. As another bonus, you won’t have to worry about fitting it in after your busy day.

Three

Start Small and Limit Expectations

A common mistake that people make when starting out with meditation is expecting too much from themselves. Start by meditating for just a few minutes at a time, rather than half an hour. Practice makes perfect and once you can remain focused for a minute at a time, increase your challenge. Do not be hard on yourself! Meditation should be a time where you allow yourself to make mistakes and try again.

Four

Set a Goal

While it’s important to start small, be sure to go into your meditation practice with a goal. Some people claim that choosing a few positive affirmations to focus on is helpful. Professional goals and personal goals can also play into your calm thought during this time. Often, meditaters strive to empty their mind of invasive thoughts, but this is a tall order for a beginner.

Comment below a few positive words that you might focus on during your first meditation practice! Have you tried this good habit before? What are a few tips you might offer to a first timer?

Encouraging Your Downline

By | JIFU Success | No Comments

A huge part of affiliate marketing is managing and encouraging your downline.

Give Recognition

Sometimes all an unmotivated worker or salesman needs is recognition for their hard work. As a leader, your job is to congratulate the best on your team for exceptional contributions in return on investment. This serves two purposes. The person who receives recognition will be more likely to continue their desirable actions. Additionally, team members who are not performing well may start modeling themselves after the best among them. Recognition creates motivation that sometimes lacks from even the best downline.

Develop a Management Style

As a leader of your team, everyone will be looking to you for information and inspiration. As such, you must master the art of management. Curate your own management style, perhaps by modeling it after a leader who you admire. This will allow you to be a reliable resource for the members of your downline. It is easy to get discouraged when you feel ill-managed, eventually leading to a decrease in productivity.

Increase Communication

Staying in touch with your downline will help your bottom line in the end. Brushing up on your communication skills will make you a more effective leader and salesman. Being able to convey your message clearly to your team is key to activating your team into success. Along with this, any good marketer has to continually update their communication skills to keep up with the changing communication channels.

Keep Focus

While the most motivated on your team will likely remain focused, this is not always the case with the average person. It can seem like boredom and loss of interest is nearly inevitable, especially if someone thinks that their plans are not working out the way they intended them to. It is your responsibility to do your best to make sure that this does not happen. By keeping connected with your downline, you can get ahead of these sorts of issues.

These are only a few tips to help you motivate and encourage your downline. It is also important to realize, however, that sometimes certain people are not cut out for the hard but rewarding life of an entrepreneur. It takes a strong leader to cultivate a team of people who are as work-oriented as you are!
