Five Types Of Friends - Which One Are You?

“Gems may be precious, but friends are priceless.”

Friendships are vital to the human condition and their absence can be emotionally damaging. But some types of friendships are more harmful than helpful.

Lose Those Pesky Holiday Pounds

Lose Those Pesky Holiday Pounds

Christmas time is often the time of indulgence. We eat every and anything that we get our hands on, whether it is ham, pork, lasagne, black cake, pudding. Combine that with excessive alcohol and no exercise and the holidays often end with us between 5-10 pounds heavier.

Many people never lose those additional pounds but go on to add even more weight with each holiday season. Before they know it they are 30-40 pounds overweight. We don’t want to let the 5-10 pounds we have put on this season balloon into uncontrollable weight gain. We will:

Who Else Wants A Nicer Butt?

Who Else Wants A Nicer Butt?

There is nothing I hate more than putting on a pair of skinny jeans and they fit perfectly in the leg but got space in the back; except when swimsuit bottoms sag. That is a sign that your butt is not a round as it could be.

Many people are on the search for the perfect bum, which is not necessarily defined by size but also the shape and perkiness that adds a certain swagger to the walk whether in jeans, slacks or a bikini.

Like me, your butt may be 70-80 percent on the way to great but could do with that extra lift to fill out your pants just right.

Are Your Friends Trustworthy?

“A friend in need is a friend indeed,” is the old cliché showing that someone who is there with you in time of trouble or hardship is a true friend. We all have our friends who we have gained in a number of ways, whether through school, church, work or even your neighbourhood who can be our trusted accomplices in life.

On some occasions though the friends we choose might be the ones to betray us when the situation becomes convenient. We all want to avoid friends who will let us down or abuse our trust at the end of the day.

Is Social Media Making You (Literally) Crazy?

Is Social Media Making You (Literally) Crazy?

Social media is fun, multi-purpose and also taking control of our lives. These tools connect us with friends, family, associates and other people in our country and across the world. We are now so connected we don’t know how to be disconnected from our mobile phones or tablets even in the midst of live encounters with our friends.

Drive down my street and you will see young men hanging out together and instead of speaking to each other their heads are in their phone and the same can be seen with people having dinner with each other.

The Trouble With False Choices

The Trouble With False Choices

While people know when they have doubts about an important decision, this is rarely true about making a false choice. Here the choice looks so good that people pretend that it is good.

Massive agreement from friends and relatives tends to reinforce this. If their pretense is strong enough, these people might even convince themselves. The only giveaway is often that gnawing emptiness inside signalling that you're not truly satisfied.
