What Are You Missing Out on Your Life?

I sure have spent a lot of time worrying that I didn’t have enough time to do the important things that I wanted to do. The more that I wanted to do, the more stressed out that I became. And the less time I had! UNTIL I REALISED HOW MUCH I WASTED TIME DOING NOTHING! Save
A few years ago, I was living the typical “American dream” life. I was about to get married. I lived in a nice house out in the country, I worked a 9-5 office job for a big company, and seemingly had everything. But after a while, I realised, I wasn’t fulfilled. I was doing a job in which I felt no real fulfillment at all. I started dreading going to work, but of course I went, because that is what you do right? Each day, I would get home from work and feel tired. It took so long to get my head out of “work mode”. I would literally just sit on the couch with my partner and “veg out”, watching TV while she played video games on her phone or watched TV too. It wouldn’t be long before it was time to go to bed, and another da…

5 Best Practices to Stop Worrying About Being Perfect

One of the most common challenges faced by many individuals is perfectionism. I must confess that I include myself in this lot, as I have personally struggled with perfectionism for many years. I know what you might be thinking. Perfection is good. Well, to a certain point it is. But it can also be quite damaging to several areas of your life. Perfectionism can ruin, or even prevent the creation of, lasting relationships. Living up to the expectations of a perfectionist is just too demanding for people not so inclined. Some of you on both sides already know what I’m talking about, right? It can put such a strain on the relationship that one or the other has to call it quits. Save Professionally perfectionism can hold you back from getting projects finished, and irritate your co-workers to the point where they refuse to work with you. It can drain your self-esteem and put you in a negative spiral where it can become harder and harder to start moving forward.

8 Crucial Time Management

Even though we are all such motivated and inspired people, There are some days where it’s a struggle even just to get out of bed! I’m sure you know the feeling. It feels great to work, and it feels great to relax. Life is about balance. We need to have a nice balance between responsibility and relaxation in order to have a fulfilling life. Our responsibilities through the week often add up to so much that we have a hard time finding time for ourselves or for our leisure activities.

How Being Lazy Can Be The Best Thing For You

The next time you’re feeling burned-out, overwhelmed or just ready to slack off, don’t be afraid to kiss it all goodbye. Turns out, doing nothing is something intelligent people do all  the time.  So says a three-decades old research study from Florida Gulf Coast University. Researchers determined in the experiment, via a series of tests ,whether a pool of candidates fell into either a cerebral or non-cerebral category.  They then monitored the activity of both groups of people for a full week. Save Their findings, considered both robust and highly statistical, were published in The Journal of Health.  It showed the “thinking” group as far less active than the “non-thinking” group.  At the end of the experiment they concluded more intelligent people tend to be a little, well, lazier.

We’ve all heard the idiom ‘work smarter, not harder’.  This study proves factual evidence to back it up.  Others who have conducted similar studies liken this to the hamster wheel conundrum. A hamster goes ‘rou…

7 Tendencies Of Narrow Minded People

We all try to be the best person we can be, and although some of us know that we have some bad habits, we ultimately never want to be accused of being narrow minded or ignorant. We should try to be as open to ideas and possibilities as we can – after all, that is how science, math, religion and policy developed to create the world that we have today. The goal of humanity is to learn, share and dream together so that we can learn as much as we can and develop to be as strong as we can. Unfortunately, racism, phobias, and narrow mindedness persists. Here are a few traits of narrow minded people, and how you can avoid those kinds of habits yourself. Save 1. The “know it all”This is the kind of person we have all had in our life sometimes, and try not to become ourselves. The know it all; he or she is first person who speaks up, and knows the answer to everything, regardless of what you tell them.
