Opal Guide to StayingAsSaneAsPossible

As disorder naturally increases with competition for resources and living depends more on adaptability, Opal's Guide to Staying-As-Sane-As-Possible saves precious energy in deciding where-to-go-next. This information process allows individuals, families, communities, nations and cultures to refocus attention more efficiently from sickening fears to healthier "feelgoods" by matching a different scale of natures to a sense of personal pleasure so that greater potential can return. A range of regularly reviewed media outlets would make possible the "owning" of a generic world-view, based on the most accurate information available. Personalized props like totem jewelery, paraphernalia etc. would serve as reminders.

Fitness specialists compete for your health needs

Imagine a network that would connect those in need of fitness expertise with a local specialist. Individuals could post their fitness goals online, without the fear of a sales pitch, free from the anxiety of modern gyms. Fitness specialists within their area would be notified in real-time of said fitness goals. Fitness specialists would then place a bid (proposal and monetary requirements for their service). From the comfort of home, the consumer could select the fitness specialist that best meets their needs and share their contact information with ONLY the fitness specialist of choice. A “Bob and Jillian” for everyone!

Custom Kid's Health Magazines

Kids around the world could benefit from customized health and fitness magazines that address their specific needs. The magazines could include health and diet tips, as well as fun exercises, new skills and activities, and stories between kids. This would help boost creative thinking, problem solving, and self-esteem. It would also relieve stress, promote social skills, and educate about worldly issues. The habits children develop stay with them through their lives, so the magazine would work to create good habits for a better life.

Mirror Neuron System in Kindergarden Dining Hall

Some children have bad eating habits. We designed a digital projector software with a mirror neuron system to show funny cartoon figures in an eating story in kindergarten dining halls. Designing funny eating jokes involved with their figures activates memories in the mirror neuron system and persuades children to eat healthy, joyful food with corresponding funny objects. The system gives them virtual prizes and virtual gifts for their good habits by the cognitive vision measurement of similarity. Furthermore, we can design a mirron neuron system to make all eating happier and more conscious, not just in schools.

Un-subsidizing Tobacco by Requiring Insurance

30% of adult health care costs worldwide will soon go towards tobacco-caused diseases because of PAST tobacco use. A little regulation goes a long way: 1) To purchase tobacco, one must have "Smoking Insurance", just as skydivers need "diving insurance" before jumping out of a plane. Smoking insurance will be a rider providing, say $100,000, to cover ONLY tobacco-related health costs, like 99% of any emphysema treatments, 30% of stroke, etc. 2) sharing tobacco - like Vicodin - will not be allowed. Thus, the smoker (not the state) prepays for and is forced to confront the health-related costs of smoking!
