5 Ways to Take the Stress Out of Gambling

In all my years of gambling I’ve come to realize that there are times when your blood pressure will go through the roof and you’ll feel like you’re having a heart attack. There are other times where you’ll feel like you’re the king of the world, and you won’t have a worry in the world. Of course, highs and lows aren’t only to be found in the world of sports betting, but in every aspect of life. Gambling simply takes these emotions to the extreme.

I’ve come up with several practical ways to handle the stress that sports-betting throws at you. Just as a disciplined gambler sticks to a money management system consistently, so too should you incorporate these 5 things into your life regularly.

1. Let the chips fall where they may

If you can learn to incorporate this attitude into your life, you’ll find that success comes to you naturally. Realize that each action you take in life carries with it an infinite amount of unknown variables. Life itself is a walk into the abyss of the unknown. This is never truer than in the case of sports-betting. Anything can happen. Once you place a bet you should adopt the attitude that win or lose you’ve made the right decision, and that you’re going to stop thinking about it. Personally, I find it best to NOT watch a sports game that I’m betting on. This isn’t to say that you don’t do a large amount of research into the plays you’re making, but that after doing all this research you trust yourself and your decisions.

“Beneath sensation and memory
The Way is the source of all the world.
How can I understand the source of the world?
By accepting.”

Acceptance of unforeseen situations is a valuable skill that I’ve learned to use in my life. All it takes is deciding that you’ll accept and deal with situations as they arise. You have to learn to accept losses the same way you accept winning. Once this happens, you’ll live in abundance. Release the firm grip of control that you hold on the world and understand that the universe will provide for you in the same way it provides for a flower.

2. Meditate 30 Minutes a day

I don’t mean to sound like a tree hugger by recommending this but its something I’ve found works wonders for not only increasing the chances of winning bets but also for eliminating negative thought patterns that can arise from gambling. There are a variety of different forms of meditation, and the one you choose matters not so much as how consistent you are in your practice. I personally use a breath meditation, where I sit in the half lotus position on a small cushion and simply focus on the diaphragm pushing in when exhaling, and inhaling naturally. There should be no pauses between the breath, and it should flow slowly and naturally. Just focus on the diaphragm pushing in and exhaling completely. Start off by doing 15 minutes of meditation a day and slowly increase this to 30 minutes a day. In the near future Mike and I will be writing an article on how to use your meditation to increase your chances of winning, and also an article on how to get over any problems that arise with meditation.

3. Trust the System and Let Go

I don’t mean put blind faith in our system or any other system, but rather after you find a winning money management and sports betting system you stick with it and trust it to make you money. If you’re always second guessing bets, or you’re throwing your money management system out the window to go with hunches, you’re bound to lose money. Casinos love people who follow hunches and continue throwing down money when they’re already down thousands of dollars. If you’re this type of person, stop gambling immediately. When I developed this system years back, I decided to test it out for a month with small amounts of money. After a month, I checked my progress and realized I made a good profit. I then proceeded to tweak the system in certain ways, and found that although my profit decreased by a small amount, my risk went down as well.

I realized that I’d developed a winning money management system, and it was then that I put my trust in the system. I expect everyone starting out with zen-money to do a little testing before putting in the big bucks. Start off with a $50 bankroll for a month, and when you see you’re making a consistent profit, up your bankroll. You’ll find that after a year, you’ve made a good amount of money. We’re here to help make you money, if you find that you aren’t making money with us, I encourage you to stop reading our articles. Unlike other websites that attempt to charge ridiculous amounts of money for sports picks and betting systems, we’re giving this out for free. We want people visiting our website to consistently make money… this is the end goal of what we do. Trusting your decision to stick with a system will eliminate tons of stress from betting.

4. Exercise at least three times a week

Exercise and being healthy is definitely important for eliminating the stress that can arise from gambling. If you smoke, you should definitely work on cutting out this habit (a good way can be by starting to meditate daily). Studies have linked exercise with releasing endorphins, testosterone, serotonin, and if its strenuous enough you will get something called a runner’s high (natural opiates being released into your body). These are all great things when it comes to eliminating stress. I’d recommend doing at least 45 minutes of exercise daily. Personally, I’ll do 45-60 minutes of weight lifting every second day, and 45 minutes of cardio the other days of the week. I eat whatever I want, but I also have at least one green smoothie once per day. For the green smoothies just purchase a couple of bananas, some containers of pre-washed spinach, and a big bowl of pre-cut fruit. Put some of the fruit in the blender first, then two bananas, two small handfuls of spinach, and add a little less than two cups of water. I’ll drink this whole concoction right after waking up, and find that it keeps me going throughout the day. When you’re healthy you’re bound to be less affected by the outcome of individual bets.

5. Do what you love – Live in the Moment

I don’t mean quit your 9-5 job or anything extreme like that (although it might be a good idea in some circumstances). But everyday you should incorporate what you love to do in your life. It will definitely do the trick of taking your mind off your pending sports bets. I know many people have a difficult time finding out what they’re passionate about. I used to be one of those people, and I know Mike was as well. One day I decided that I was going to try out a whole bunch of different activities (rock climbing, skydiving, scuba diving, muay thai, etc…) and figure out what it is I loved to do. I did just that, and now I have a whole bunch of hobbies that bring joy to my life. However, sometimes the simplest things can be the best; helping others is something I love to do. Make it a habit to participate in one random act of kindness daily (whether its telling a woman she’s beautiful, or holding the door open for an elderly person), you’ll find that you can’t help but be happy with the way you live life. Also, stop projecting your thoughts into the future or the past. Try to focus your attention in the present moment and you’ll discover a joy to life you never knew you had.

How Do We Gamble in Our Everyday Lives?

Gambling is considered to be the exchange of funds and taking a chance on winning the funds back or winning back more than what you first placed on the bet. It does not matter what the bet was placed on whether you place it on cards, dice, horses, dogs, chickens, football, basketball or any other kinds of sporting events then you have gambling.

The lottery is also considered to be gambling and in some states is considered to be the only gambling that is legal. With the lottery you can purchase numbers that play out and depending on how many numbers you match then you can win back another ticket or you can win more money than what you paid for the ticket in the first place. When you place bets you generally place a bet on some thing that you are well aware of and know that you can risk all of that money on this one subject and be well aware that you may not get it back, but the risk is worth it to you.

Taking a chance is taking a risk and taking a risk in most cases is considered gambling. A person who flips houses is considered a gambler because they risk not making as much money on the house as what they have put in to the house. When you flip the house, you flip it because the risk is considered to be less than them losing profit on the house when the house is sold. I bet you did not think that a real estate adventure was gambling but if you look at the definition of gambling then flipping houses definitely falls with in the category of gambling.

With any kind of sporting event you can gamble just like I mentioned in the beginning of the article. There are different kinds of betting that takes place when you watch the game you are placing the bet on. You can bet on games, arcade games, card games, dice games like Yahtzee or other dice games. With dice games you can create your own universal way of winning your money. Gambling as you may remember is taking a risk and to out way the risk of losing and comparing the risk to winning and that is why when you bet money on a game or card game or dice game it is considered gambling.

Did you know that the television show Deal or No deal is considered to be a gambling show because you decide if the brief case you have that you picked is worth not knowing what is in the other briefcases and as you take out money the risk changes to either decrease the amount the buyer is willing to pay you for the briefcase or whether it increases the amount the buyer is willing to pay you for depending on what amounts are left on the board.

We have also learned that gambling is taking a risk and that whenever there is money involved and you take a risk to see how much money you can win back if you put the money in then that is gambling. We also learned that flipping houses and placing bets on sporting events is considered gambling as well. So, the bottom line here is if you do gamble be sure that you are willing to out way the risk to lose the money verses what money you would get back if you decided to wager that much money.

New Legislation Threatens Online Gambling

On the 15th of February US Congressman from Virginia Bob Goodlatte reintroduced HR 4777, the “Internet Gambling Prohibition Act.” Goodlatte hopes to pass the bill, which will amend the earlier Title 18 of the United States Code containing the Federal Wire Act passed in 1961. The Wire Act outlawed telephone betting by making it illegal to place bets by “wire transmission.”

The explosion of Internet poker rooms and sports books in recent years was possible only as a result of the ambiguity surrounding the definition of “wire”. While opponents of Internet gambling insisted that the meaning included cable, satellite, and cellular technology, no court would uphold a conviction based on that definition. Goodlatte hopes to amend that by expanding the Code to include all forms of electronic transmission, as well as to include all types of bets.

Earlier attempts to pass the legislation were thwarted by the lobbying efforts of Jack Abramoff, according to Gooodlatte’s office. But Abramoff’s recent guilty pleas to fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to bribe public officials have added political capital to Goodlatte’s campaign.

According to Goodlatte “Illegal online gambling doesn’t just hurt gamblers and their families, it hurts the economy by draining dollars from the United States and serve as a vehicle for money laundering,” stated Goodlatte. “It is time to shine a bright light on these illegal sites and bring a quick end to illegal gambling on the Internet.”

“But outlawing online gambling won’t stop the activity.” says Will Catlett of Sportsbettingscams.org, an industry watchdog site. “It will only drive it underground. If online gambling is outlawed then the government will lose its ability to legislate online gambling policy and police it’s dangers, not to mention its ability to tax the transactions. Goodlatte’s bill will do exactly the opposite of what it wants to do.”

As of July 2005, according to Forrester polls, there were over 300,000 gambling websites entertaining over 7,000,000 online gamblers. While the bulk of traffic to these websites initially came from the United States, that number is now around 40% as players are attracted from all over the world. If the bill is passed, the industry will shrink dramatically, and shift its focus to other nations. Meanwhile, online gamblers in the United States will be out of luck. “It’s amazing to me that this bill just might pass quietly with little or no resistance.” says Catlett. “Anyone who enjoys gambling online really should write their State Representative to let them know why this bill shouldn’t go through.”

Money Management in Online Gambling

Money management is an important aspect of online gambling. Since, there are innumerable risks involved in the field of casino gambling, one needs to be careful. In fact, it has emerged as one of the most bantered term in this domain. Moreover, without money, no matter how indomitable the player is, he does not stand a chance. But then, managing money over here is not that easy as it sounds. One needs to have

* Strategy
* Patience
* Self control

The term “money management” has different interpretations for different gamblers. For some, it means the bankroll management for increasing one’s longevity at the table but for others, it’s a certain kind of betting strategy which decreases the edge of house advantage. Numerous books and articles for casino games have been inked for this subject. But most of the times, all of them reveal the same theories and tactics. At times, for those players who are about to set their first foot forward, these articles act as warnings rather than guides. So, here is a very fundamental revelation of the need of money management and the tricks to adopt for it. Need of money management

“Who cares?” Even those who are filthy rich cannot afford to think so, in terms of online gambling, which has mercilessly devastated thousand of gamblers. No doubt, online gambling is an addiction, but at the same time, intelligence and wise betting aid in extra income.

Unlike lottery, no one transforms into a millionaire within a single night, at online gambling. It’s more similar to stock exchange and sports betting. Luck cannot be the only aid to depend upon. Moreover, defeating the housing advantage is quite tricky. After all, in online gambling there are no opponents who can be scrutinized, followed and tricked. Every game is a new challenge. Ignorance and lack of proper money management have led to stupendous failures for outstanding gamblers. For those, who had adopted online gambling as their only profession, this failure has doomed them to utmost degree of bankruptcy. Generally, gamblers donot indentify the grave consequences, which occur after the incessant losses.

Gamblers might not win a losing bet by having more money but they definitely can play for longer bets, thereby compensating their earlier loses. With money, the online gamblers also have the sense of security and thus, they can delve into more risk cycles.

But before starting with any online casino game, the gamblers should know the following answers.

* The amount that can be spent before calling off the game: The gamblers should only bet as much as they can afford to lose. It takes only a second to transform into a panicked gambler, who is engrossed in recouping losses by taking wild odds.
* The amount that can be accepted before calling off the game: Logging off from the casino site as a winner, too, demands self control. One has to be reasonable enough to prevent oneself from further paroxysms of temptations.

This is the most basic fundamental of money management. Until and unless, these two basic judgments are not made by the gambler, in advance, he might end up losing all his financial assets. Understanding constancy of house edge

The entire concept that betting system can affect the house advantage is mere fallacy. It’s similar to making the payment of mortgage o double basis rather than per month. This will in no way affect the interest. In the same manner, doubling the amount of a single bet and escaping one bet, might not make a lot of difference. The fundamentals of money management

The entire aim of money management strategies and techniques is to enhance the earnings of the online casino player. This also works for lessening the house advantage for the online players, without increasing the risk cycles.

But at the same time, here are a few facts which justify losses in spite of flawless usage of money management.

* The strategy does not make you the indisputable winner of every table or card game. It just maximizes your winnings and reduces your loss.
* Bad play of bad luck cannot be compensated by the usage of flawless management strategies.
* Always remember that the House Advantage has ample strategies to wear out the gamblers who might have been using goal based money management strategies.

Some disastrous additions to managing strategies

* Double after losing bets: Few casino experts believe that this might, somehow, lessen your losses. But then, if main trouble initiates when the number of lost bets increases. No doubt, such big losses cannot be recovered.
* Double after winning bets: This is also known as let-it-ride technique. This strategy confirms that the biggest loss occurs at player’s highest bet, which indeed is not an intelligent decision.

Some important tips for money management are as follows

* Do not invest your entire bank roll for just one session of online gambling. It’s advisable to divide one’s bankroll on the basis of gambling sessions. This prevents the obsessive addition of tomorrow’s money into today’s investment.
* The entire winning goal should be set up, as to how much, is the maximum necessity to win in a particular gamble. In case, the player has impressive winning, he should set aside his winnings and divided bankroll for the day, so that maximum earnings can be assured.
* A predetermined percentage for increase should be set in advance for every bet. This strategy is known as method of progressive winning.
* Do not increase the bet amount when one has been recently nabbed with losses.
* Be disciplined. It’s the most crucial and important part of proper money management.
* Select the advantageous gambling opportunities, be it, recognizing the odd bets, playing conditions or game rules.
* Winning streaks do not occur every day. So one should not end the rare magical moment by quitting the hands.

The unfortunate sin in Online Gambling, is the aimless pursuit of chasing one’s losses. This baseless hope means that the next bet might lead to the winning streak and the lost money can be recovered in one go. Winning or losing is not in one’s hand, but definitely limiting one’s respective losses is.

Most of the online casino players, who have had continuous winning streaks, might ignore the house advantage. This should never be done as it’s a mere disillusion rather than reality.

Finally, one needs to realize that there won’t be scarcity of online casinos in the coming future but, if one does not adopt a potential money management practice, there would definitely be scarcity of one’s hard earned money.

Casino Gambling, Gaming In General, Or The Game Of Life

Gaming can be defined as playing games of chance: whether unproductive Wii, solitaire, gambling for money, or gambling on either a theist or atheist lifestyle. Everything is a gamble, especially the game of life; however, a correct evaluation of the points raised in theism and atheism argumentation will still the endless debate and lead to a better world, removing the barrier to a worry-free game of life.

Many shun gaming as evil; to another, it is merely a fun-filled endeavor. The point, however, is not to value one viewpoint over another but to rationalize the view of offense: offense cannot be in the real definition of motivation to action but in action motivation. Would the act of gambling hurt others, or would disallowance of gambling injure others? The absence of either pro-gambling or anti-gambling factions to the other’s presence would hardly constitute offense or injury!

In everyday activity, we engage a predisposition to chance taking, in acts not normally thought of as games of chance. Fate has much to do with our religious leanings. In either of three branches of metaphysics, Judaism, Christianity, or Islam, we ask, which offers the greater chance of delivering benefit? Or, further, if one chooses one of the numerous sects or denominations under each branch, under which are the odds greater to reach a favorable result?

There exists great difference in choice, each at odds with the other and outside unilateral purpose as biblically recommended (origin of all three branches). So, which should one choose – or, does one simply depend on luck of the draw? Was each born to a particular monotheism or perhaps merely geographic heir to his religious or nonreligious commitment?

If born to Judaism, how can one escape a promised termination in Bible prose?

If one inherited Christianity, how could he ignore the scriptural end of all things and evidential Parousia in prophetic utterance and consistent with first century symbol and number meanings; which template sets precedence for the modern branches?

If the reader submits to Islam, how could such mentality escape the disinheritance of Ishmael and the ruthlessness of its founder?

These shortcomings deserve evaluation of the ethos determining rightness or wrongness in inference. Additionally, if one can work simple arithmetic and basic language, coupled with a sense for acceptable meanings and intent, he can intercept and wonder at the cabal (code) hiding biblical intent.

The choice is there for everyone: Muslim, Jew, or Christian. Each gambles with his means, his life, and his fate. Yet, participants face a guaranteed loss, according to chances of benefit at Ezekiel 14:14. But a sure gamble awaits those with enough interest to hedge his bet.

Modern religionists fall short, in light of the Ezekiel 14:14 restriction, and can depend neither on chosen people misconceptions nor on the identity and definition opened in Bible Symbols and Numbers. This is an important and far-reaching observation. Both theist and atheist debate from a very flawed position; they base belief more on desire and speculation than reason. Debate bounces back and forth without advantage, for they neglect the mediating link hidden in Bible symbols and numbers, the only source for a sensible determination.

Both belief and unbelief, in ignorance of cause and effect, fall to opinion and emotion. Only in a correct evaluation of Bible symbols can proper interpretation resolve the atheist/theist dispute. The truth will shock all who dare to risk a concerted study of eschatology and Parousia time frame! Yet, even with an edge, any gambler will tell you: I’d rather be lucky than good. However, luck is just an added advantage if you forsake emotion and consult the know-how available.

By the same token, if one selects religion as his gaming favorite, in the race of life, he should be equally discriminatory of choice. For, after all, participants bet the ultimate stakes, their life. Is the discipline a unilateral recommendation? Better yet, does it meet with all the limitations and exhortations posited in the only legal-historicity positing its possibility? Does your commitment exceed or lack the harmony of prophecy and soteriology? This author guarantees your commitment can be syllogistically evaluated for proof or disproof. Such conclusion is available in further study.

Gambling Industry Expanding And Players Who Use Gambling Strategies

What does the word Gamble” mean to you?

For the average player the word gambling” means much more than a risky bet. It can stand for just about anything from vacationing, Las Vegas, and even fun. Devised earlier than 3000 years ago, gambling was well documented to have existed in many civilizations. The games we know today are the incarnations of former ones, with adjusted rules. For the length of time gambling was invented, players have always seemed obsessed with trying to use various gambling strategies for games. However, Casinos have always had the mathematical advantage along with an adamant need for stopping the smart player. It has forever become a vicious cycle of exploitive players vs. casinos catching up.

Today, gambling doesn’t even need to be played at Las Vegas or any other casino chains.

Now for those of you who live under rocks or live in a time warp may say, Wait….outside of Casinos?”

Well you see…

1.In-flight Gambling: Eflyte has been developing in-flight gaming and continues to spread its influence on many airlines. Currently they have the world’s first Multiplayer Poker Tournament along with over 60 games for airplanes. Ceo of Ryanair will also attempt use in-flight gaming by next year. Now casino gambling may be common on cruises, but it’s a breakthrough for airlines.

2.Mobile phones can also be used to buy lotteries and sports betting nowadays. If certain restrictions are lifted, it could even mean much more growth in its use.

3.Internet Casinos are also another medium in which gambling doesn’t seem to stop growing; despite being forced to open offshore from the US. This isn’t necessarily bad of course.

The gambling industry is on a growing trend and it doesn’t seem to stop anywhere in sight. Of course, this naturally means that more and more people will be hooked and continue losing to the casinos.

Even the strategic players are screwed over at times with certain technologies being developed. Some casinos even started to implement tracking devices in chips to catch card counters. Those days of Ken Uston and counting machines are getting harder to come by since casinos already know about the gambling strategies used. New mediums such as electronic gambling can stop card counting dead in it’s track.

Winning through strategy can still be done, just as internet marketing can still make some rich. Yet being particular savvy to news and gambling strategy alike can immensely help the professional gambler. That is, unless gambling is only treated as a simple recreation. Otherwise, the best a player can do is to read up on forums and reference news sources for any changes in their gambling strategy.

Gambling Systems – Do We Need Them?

Of course we do! Lets start by asking this question. What is gambling? Let’s continue by evaluating our main goal when we gamble. Can you please tell me which is our main goal in gambling? Is it to have fun playing cards or sitting hours in front of the slots machines? Of course not, our goal in gambling is to MAKE MONEY. And how do we do that? We do it by learning a gambling system!

But, do gambling systems work? Can I make more money gambling with a gambling system? Are there 100% trusted gambling systems? These are only a few questions that always arise when dealing with gambling systems.

To understand what a gambling system is we have to learn first what is a system. So first of all, let’s begin by defining a system. What is a system? A system, the dictionary definition, is “an assemblage of inter-related elements comprising a unified whole.” Wow, what a definition. I BET I can impress my mother in law with a sentence like that.

Ok, now could you please explain the word system in easy to understand common day language? Sure, what this means is that a system is a group of related things, objects or events grouped together for a specific purpose. For example, everything in life is a system. We live in a solar system, this solar system has planets, moons and a sun. They are all related and they all have a purpose.

When we step into a casino, poker room or online gambling site, the very first thing we do is make a gambling decision. Here are some of the gambling decisions and questions we make: Where do I sit? How much do I wager? Which type of slot machine do I choose? What are the odds of winning in this game? All of these decisions are related. They are all related in our purpose to make money and all of these decisions are the elements of our gambling system.

When you play poker, every decision is an element of a gambling system. Believe it or not you already have a current gambling system, the way you play, your strategy, your bluffing, your folding, everything you do is your personal gambling system. The best part is that you can educate yourself in other systems and upgrade yours. There is a saying that says, no matter what you already know, you can always learn something from others.

There are gambling systems for all type of games. Roulette systems, blackjack systems, craps systems, slot machine systems, poker systems, lottery systems, sports systems and horse racing systems. You can check out all these and other gambling systems at Gambling Systems.

Why should I invest in a gambling system? Well for starters, they are not so expensive. If you can loose a couple of hundred bucks a day, every day you go visit a casino, that would come up to thousands. Then investing $50 to $100 bucks in a gambling system should not hurt that much.

Remember that information is power. You want to be real informed on your odds and other great professional gambling advice. My parents always use to say, investing in education is the best investment. Education is something nobody can take away from you.

Good luck in your gambling education. After all, isn’t that what we gamble for? To make money, If not, I propose changing the word gambling to losing.
