5 Ways to Stick With Your New Year’s Resolutions in 2017
With 2017 quickly approaching, it’s time to consider the things we want to change in our lives next year. For many of us, these aspirations come in the form of New Year’s resolutions. But keeping these resolutions often seems impossible.

Goals need to have specific outcomes. Otherwise, it’s easy to make up excuses or shift when circumstances change.
You need to have a way of measuring your results. This way, you can gauge your progress and stay motivated.
Goals need to be realistic and achievable. Otherwise, you’ll lose focus and drop off early on in … Read More »

4 Actionable Tips On How You Can Lower Your Property Taxes
The value of real estate properties have been increasing again and as a result, the assessments on properties are also increasing. As a result, property taxes are also on the rise. High property taxes is not one of the best benefits of owning a home, so homeowners are constantly finding ways to make it appear that their house does not deserve a high assessment value.

These Motivational Tips Will Take Your Life To Next Level
It is human nature to aim higher, to always want to be better, to strive for success and most importantly to own the joy and happiness that comes with accomplishment. You remember the feeling you had when you bought your first rusty car, from the long-term savings from your first job. It was the best feeling, right? What about when you got your promotion at work because of the long hours you spent working overtime. When your start-up business finally picked up after months of strategizing and contracts, deals and partnership proposals began to pour in. When that girl you had pursued forever finally said yes, and you led her to the altar of the church in a colorful wedding.
Even if you cannot remember these instances, maybe because they have not … Read More »

Living Overseas? 10 Tips To Help You Easily Learn Your New Language
Living abroad is one of the best ways to truly experience a different culture. It’s an amazing feeling to wake up in a new timezone with new food options, scenery, people, and a completely different way of looking at the world. When you move to a new country it can be a little frightening, and very intimidating–especially at first. However, after you learn the ropes and get adjusted to the differences, the experience takes on a completely new feel.
When you move to another country, everything is fresh and new. It feels great to learn and explore unfamiliar territory. However, the terrain is the only thing that should be completely new to you. This is because having a preliminary sense of the culture and knowing a bit of the language … Read More »

Online Visibility Tips for Introverted Entrepreneurs
If you’re a heart-centred entrepreneur, you probably got into business to help change people’s lives, share your unique message and make the world a better place by doing the work that you do. In order to do those things though, people need to know who you are and how you can help them. You have to put yourself out there and be visible so that the people you’re here to help can find you. That however, is easier said than done if you’re an introvert.
If you’re an introvert, the thought of being visible and networking can be overwhelming and stressful, even if your business is primarily online and takes place behind your laptop.
Here are 3 ways introverts can overcome overwhelm and increase their online visibility:
1. Find out where your people are
You don’t need to be visible and … Read More »


Quick Ricotta Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Quick Ricotta Pumpkin Pie Recipe
Do you like pumpkin pie but never have time to make one? (I once ended up with a house full of guests and no desserts in the fridge). Luckily, I had a can of pumpkin puree, a little tub of ricotta, and a pie crust tucked away in my pantry. So, I decided to mix it all together and hoped for the best; turned out that my guests liked it. I suppose someone somewhere online has a more sophisticated version of this recipe, but I thought I’d share my version of this quick ricotta pumpkin pie for those in need of a quick pumpkin pie recipe.
What You’ll Need
1 Graham pie crust, or other pie crust (about 9 – 10 inches in diameter)
1 1/3 cups of pumpkin puree
1/2 cup of creamy ricotta cheese (or a usual ricotta, but you’ll need to … Read More »

How To Choose The Best Ergonomic Chair

Posted on December 8th, by admin in Life Hack. No Comments

How To Choose The Best Ergonomic Chair
Needless to say, sitting for a long period of time is unhealthy, and sitting on a non-ergonomic chair makes it even worse. Prolonged sitting on non-ergonomic office chairs overstretches and stiffens your glutes. It can also add stress to the spine which can, later on, lead to compounding back problems.
As non-ergonomic chairs promote bad posture, the spine does not get the sufficient support it needs which could potentially lead to spinal musculature. Moreover, bad posture due to prolonged sitting on a non-ergonomic chair also messes with the alignment of your spine.
Poor posture can easily develop into a habit which can also aggravate episodes of neck and back pains. The good news is that with ergonomically designed chairs, you can have better control of your posture. Before you experience these chronic pains, it is better … Read More »

What to Remember When Sending Business Christmas Cards
As Christmas approaches, many companies begin to prepare their Christmas cards for clients, customers, employees, and other business associates. While it may seem like a simple thing, there are a lot of considerations regarding what is and isn’t appropriate, as well as the method of delivery.
You need to select an appropriate design and message that properly reflects the sentiment you are trying to express. If it is too salesy, it may be quickly discarded as just another ad while impersonal cards may not have the affect you desire.
Since the selection of an appropriate holiday greeting can be challenging, and business communications require a different type of etiquette than those you would send personally, we have gathered some tips to help you. Here are seven things you should keep in mind when sending business … Read More »

What Is Lactose Intolerance And What To Do If You Have It
Digestive problems seem to be common these days. Lactose intolerance is one of the longer-known problems, perhaps before the commonly heard ‘gluten intolerant’ or ‘celiac’. Lactose intolerance is one of the most common digestive issues, and affects between 30 million and 50 million Americans today. Generally we know that the problem occurs when we consume dairy, yet beyond that, what is actually happening within the body when a person has such an intolerance? How does the milk we consume affect our digestive system in such a negative way? And how can we best remedy such a condition?
What is Lactose Intolerance?
People with lactose intolerance are most commonly advised to avoid milk and dairy products. This is because dairy contains a natural sugar that the body cannot tolerate – If the body … Read More »

The Real Reason Why Most Of Us Look More Like Our Dads Than Our Moms
Women no longer have to fear that they will become another version of their mother. As humans, our genetics are not inclined to support that anyway. It is scientifically proven that genetics cause people to look and behave more like their dads than their moms. In fact, as a woman, you might have frequently been told throughout your life that you look like your father. Well, there is a reason for that. Science shows us why you have your daddy’s eyes.
Your dad has more genetic influence
Research has shown that 60% of genes express parent-of-origin effects from the father. It was originally thought that only 95 genes express the parent-of-origin effect. Now it’s known that thousands of your genes express themselves according to what your dad added to … Read More »


Nutritionists Say Granola Bars Are Just Dressed Up Junk Food

Nutritionists Say Granola Bars Are Just Dressed Up Junk Food
Granola bars, like many sweeties in disguise, are marketed as a health food or health snack on today’s market. And while there are certain nutrients to be gained from some ingredients in granola and other muesli bars and slices, these snacks are actually far less healthy than we are led to believe.
Why Is It Unhealthy?
Granola bars are a huge part of many people’s diets including children’s lunches. Because of the “healthy” ingredients within granola bars such as fruits, oats and even seeds and grains, we consume these bars under the assumption (or the self-denial) that these are healthy foods that are good for us.
The truth is, in fact, that there are huge amounts of hidden fats and sugars within granola that, if we actually knew about, we might think twice about … Read More »
