“How’s your day?” People ask us about our day all the time. Sometimes, you brushed it off because you know these are just small talks. Often, you had a really bad day and wanted to de-stress.

But have you ever sat down and taken a minute to reflect on your day? If not, here is how and why you should.
When we start to reflect daily, we learn from the little things we experience.

How Quitting Would Actually Help You Make Progress
“Winners never quit, quitters never win.” Growing up, we are taught to be persistent; society tells us the path to success is to persevere, quitting is never an option. In reality, quitting happens more often than we think. Sometimes, it could even be a beneficial move. Before diving into the positives, let’s define what quitting really means.

The Ultimate Productivity Myth: Is Multi-tasking Good For Your Brain?

Posted on February 18th, by admin in Life Hack. No Comments

The Ultimate Productivity Myth: Is Multi-tasking Good For Your Brain?
Multitasking is a big part of the modern world. People are constantly doing two things at once; they send emails when they are spending time with their loved ones, they work out while texting a friend and they cook while they check Facebook.
However, all of this multi-tasking is bad for your brain. Recent studies have found that multitasking increases the production of cortisol, a stress hormone, and adrenaline, which can overstimulate the brain. This can cause a “mental fog” that makes it hard for you to concentrate or focus.
Over time this overload of information leads to a cognitive slowdown. When you have more information to process, you have less time to think about the information properly.
There are lots of benefits to modern technology. It is easier than ever to learn about … Read More »

Fortunately, there are ways to increase your focus and double your productivity by removing distractions and adopting a conscious mindset.

3 Little Tricks That Will Make You Sound More Authoritative
Have you noticed how some people seem blessed with the ability to convince with their words? They are confident and powerful speakers – who know how to successfully deliver their messages. Unfortunately, for most of us, we don’t naturally have these skills. For example, when called on to speak in a team meeting, we may find ourselves stuttering our words, drifting from our core message, and generally sounding weak and ineffectual. Fortunately, there are several techniques you can use to instantly boost your credibility and authority.
1. Present both sides of an argument
Recent consumer psychology research has shown that two-sided arguments are more persuasive.[1] This may seem counterintuitive, as presenting only one side of a story would appear to be the obvious choice when looking to persuade people.
However, by presenting both sides … Read More »

Romance Is In Small Things. What This Guy Did Would Just Melt Your Heart
Most of us dream about the perfect partner: someone who loves, cherishes and understands us completely. Unfortunately there isn’t such a thing as a perfect human being, therefore, perfect partners are in short supply. That doesn’t mean that the right one isn’t out there though. Because it’s not about whether someone understands you completely; it’s about whether or not they want to. Does your partner try to make you happy? Does he try to unerstand every aspect of you? Do you return the favor? Do you smile at each other each day, bring each other coffee without being asked? What little, everyday things enrich your relationship?
The woman in the story below is truly blessed to be in such an obviously warm and loving relationship.

Your Birth Order Determines Your Personality? This Interesting Theory Explains How

Your Birth Order Determines Your Personality? This Interesting Theory Explains How
Your older sibling takes on the role of your parents too often, or your friend, who is an only child thinks the world revolves around them? Why is it that certain personality traits are explained by the birth order? The theory is traced back to the 1920’s when Alfred Adler introduced a theory of birth order determining ones personality.[1] There are five categories of birth order that affect how the person is viewing love, friendship and work.
Firstborn Children: The Leaders
Firstborn children tend to adopt the traits of a powerful leader and have the urge to help and protect others. Once their younger siblings are born, firstborns tend to copy the parents’ behavior and can get over-protective of their siblings. The care they learn to provide to their siblings makes them … Read More »

Want Your Kids To Be Happy For A Lifetime? Make Them Feel Secure In The Early Days
Has your child ever scraped their knee on the playground, then come running to you, crying, with open arms? When kids feel secure with their parents or caregivers, they automatically turn to them for comfort. Some parent behaviors foster that sense of security, while other actions can break it down.
Knowing the right way to react to your child in certain situations can be tricky. Here’s what to do to ensure you are raising your child to be a secure adult and setting them up to form healthy relationships later on.
Respond to their needs
Research behind attachment theory shows that kids have already established a sense of trust, or lack thereof, with their caregiver before they reach the age of one.[1] If they are used to … Read More »


This is Why You Should Give Yourself "24 Hours" When You Are Angry

Posted on February 17th, by admin in Life Hack. No Comments

This is Why You Should Give Yourself “24 Hours” When You Are Angry
Emotions are human nature, including both the positive ones and the negative ones. When we were kids, we might sometimes find our parents annoying as they often told us to clean our rooms while we were busy at something. Or maybe you would get angry when you found yourself being treated unfairly. Think of the last time you got annoyed by something or someone, how did you deal with that? Here we have some advice for you.
The Rule of 24 Hours
When you feel angry, remember to give yourself 24 hours before you react. As the saying goes, ‘Think twice before you act.’ 24 hours allow sufficient time for you to think twice, or even more. It is easy to say something you will regret later when you are overwhelmed … Read More »

One Super Easy Way To Help You Get Rid Of Social Media
Raise your hand if you stayed awake past midnight browsing through your social media posts at least once in the past week or so! I believe there are many of us who get lost going through the endless stream of pictures, announcements, and updates from our virtual friends or our favorite celebrities. We end up going to bed much later than we planned, and we end up waking up even more tired. And for what? We lose hours and hours looking at other people’s “perfect” lives, whereas we fail to notice we’ve neglected our own lives.
We’ve become totally caught up in the online world, either trying to make ourselves look perfect or being jealous over the seemingly ideal lives other people are leading. Wasting our time in front of … Read More »

Posted on February 17th, by admin in Life Hack. No Comments

Here’s How Emotionally Intelligent People Handle Conversations
Do you ever feel flustered or frustrated when people keep asking the same questions over and over? Or, are you that person who constantly tries to justify your point of view when someone argues with you? At the same time, have you met someone who could remain calm and collected while dealing with a conflict or chaos? Do you ever wonder how they could maintain composure without becoming agitated or irritated? Here are four ways that emotionally intelligent people handle conversations in social situations.
Everyone receives negative feedback sometimes, even those with high emotional intelligence. Where they differ is that emotionally intelligent people do not feel attacked emotionally, and they do not respond with a defensive “No, I’m not” immediately. Rather, they process their emotions fully and understand the point of view of the other … Read More »
