Occasionally, men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces may be able to take some time off—take a vacation from the service. Military personnel would be pleased, and some would even be surprised, to know that there are several hotels that offer discounts exclusively for them. These hotels are often called military hotels.
Military hotels are all over the country and men and women in the army can look forward to as much as, or oftentimes more, than $10 worth of savings a day. Apart from regular discounts, some military hotels also offer various packages like lower daily hotel rates for longer or extended stays and also double benefits. Some hotels have policies against double benefits but there are still some who allow them. Military personnel may also be able to take special rates from having a roadside assistance program. To max your savings, find the best military hotel that suits you.
But how does one find a military hotel? Some of your favorite hotels may actually be military-friendly hotels. A simple inquiry over the phone, online or through the front desk would provide you with all the information you need. If you are a bit wary over making calls and the like, you can always do a simple web search. The internet can supply you with a list of hotels that provide discount rates to the servicemen of the military.
Despite the obvious advantages of staying in a military hotel, some military personnel are either hesitant, adamant or both about finding these hotels. The important thing to remember is that everyone, not just military personnel, can always make room for savings from taking on discount (and most people are often all better for it).

If you have ever been in a tight spot that seemed very hard to get by, let alone solve, then being creative about your approaches to the problem will prove to be a lifesaver.
Every problem has a solution, always keep this in mind. Surrendering to the idea that every problem comes with a solution is, oddly enough, the first step to gaining the answer you need. Easier said than done but with diligent practice, you should be able to solve just about anything. So how exactly can you gain a creative perspective on problems?
There are two things you need to get your creativity rolling: optimism and open-mindedness. Being able to accept, without having the need to prove, that a solution is indeed imminent is the first thing you need to learn about creative problem solving. Secondly, you need to be open to all ideas that come your way and be receptive to the possibility that there could be more than one solution to the problem. The solution you’re looking for might come in packages you least expect.
To further your cause, here’s an exercise to squeeze out those creative juices:
In a piece of paper, write down the first word that comes to your mind. Take a few seconds to look at the word and, again, write down the first two words that strike you. Repeat the exercise until you can build a large enough tree of related words to fill the entire paper. This exercise will provide you with the practice you need to encourage spontaneous thinking and will result to a creativity that is enhanced and, well, spontaneous.
