How Attached Are You To Your Tech?
I am travelling for a five-day trip soon. One thing not coming along for the ride: technology. I am leaving computer, BlackBerry, tablet all behind and being completely unplugged for five days.
That would be the longest I have ever been without connection to my social media accounts, email and games like Words with Friends in about 3 years.
Overcoming Creative Block
As a creative person, any block in your ability to produce your art whether it is visual, literary or performing can be a devastating time. I feel butterflies in my stomach for the entire time that I can’t write poems; others feel depressed, sad or despondent.
Beat The Back To School Blues
You had the best summer ever. Fun parties, trips to the beach and lots of hanging out with friends, possibly even a neat summer job filled your days with fun, frolic and some extra pocket money.
Now you have been back to school or university for a few weeks but you can’t get your brain back into gear to focus on what you have to do. Let’s talk about a few ways that you can help beat those back to school blues and prepare for a challenging but hopefully successful year ahead.
Great Ways To Handle Stress
As a university student feeling the pressure to get great grades or a young professional fighting to prove your worth in the workplace, your life can become stressful enough to cause burnout.
Why Women Should Lift Weights
Sometimes you will hear a woman say she wants to become fit but she will not weight train because she’s afraid that will make her bulky and that she will look manly and unattractive. Not only is this a myth, it also restricts many women from experiencing some of the great benefits of weight training.
Does Facebook Make You Sad?
Some people will always be stuck in keeping up with the Jones’ mode. They continue to compare their lives to that of others and when they can’t keep up they can end up feeling depressed and even suffer self-esteem issues.
With the advent of Facebook it is easier to troll or surf other people’s profiles and by extension their lives to find points to compare with your own life.
Last Minute Summer Fitness
It is already July and you still don’t have the summer body you have been hoping to get. Don’t throw your hands up and walk away from this goal quite yet. There are several steps you can take to ensure that you look great in a swimsuit before the summer is over.
Getting A Summer Job You’ll Love
It is summer time which equates to VACATION. You will have long days of sleeping in late, going to the beach, hanging with friends and having just a lazy, easy going, stress-free time. However, as my gran would say the devil finds things for idle hands.
Are You A Mooch?
No one appreciates a mooch. You know that person who never tries to pay their own way and is always looking for hand-outs. We try to avoid them at all costs. They drain your emotion, energy, spirit and oftentimes your pockets. It becomes increasingly difficult when that mooch is someone you love like family or a close friend.
Dealing With Difficult People
My “friend”, we will call him John, once signed into MSN Messenger as another friend who we will call Mike. Mike had previously been a confidant who knew all my secrets. As Mike, John listened while I confided several secrets without informing me that he was not Mike and even probed me with questions, making me reveal even more because of the trust I held for Mike.
