If You Think Minimalism Is Only About Having Fewer Stuff, You Don't Really Understand It

Becoming a minimalist has captivated a new generation of people looking to pare down their lifestyles. It’s been all over the news lately, including in The New Yorker , where the #vanlife has taken over the site.[1] For me, #minimalism is not #about #having #fewer things—as a traveler and full-time digital nomad, it’s a necessity and a philosophy. What really is Minimalism? Minimalism is #really the idea of having the chance to pursue happiness. Much of the philosophy is finding what makes you content as a human being and following…

The health benefits of milk thistle were discovered in the ancient times and it was first used as a treatment for liver disorders by Europeans. It has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and it can enable you to detoxify your body in a natural way. Milk…

Why Do Men Cheat on Their Loved Ones and What They Actually Think

Now, now, before you get all “woman #cheat too” and “this is a sexist subject” on me, I must disclose the fact that I agree with you. But statistically and historically, women have been asking the question, “why do men cheat?” since the beginning of the ages, apparently to no avail. Are men more likely to cheat? Well, sadly, the answer is yes. But perhaps we can try to better understand this occurrence before we crucify the male species for #their shortcomings. Statistically speaking, men do cheat more than women….

Verbal Abuse Is Much More Destructive Than You Think. Don't Overlook That

You may have heard disparaging comments directed at someone, or maybe even yourself: in the girls’ locker room, on the bus, at work, but when someone faces them on a regular basis, it cracks their self-esteem and erodes their self-confidence. They feel hurt, lonely and maybe even afraid. #Verbal #abuse is “the excessive use of (negative) language to undermine someone’s dignity and security through insults or humiliation in a sudden or repeated manner”.[1] It does not get better after a time, it only gets worse. According to statistics, 1 in…

If You Think Work Hard and Play Hard Is Not Practical, You Haven't Really Tried

How many people do you know who complain about #work stresses? They may even do a job that they do not enjoy, only to return home at the end of the day with little energy or motivation to do anything. They go to sleep and prepare for the same routine the following day. The concept of work #hard #play hard is the last thing on their minds.[1] Perhaps you may feel like this some days, too! A lot of people may not revel in the mundane tasks of their day-to-day life, which…

And we’re not talking about the type of liar that lies occasionally as an excuse for breaking a commitment. No, that would be a little easier to handle. We’re talking about the lie-for-no-reason, make-you-want-to-pull-your-hair-out type of liar. Yes, that one. No worries.

Sorry, But Quiet People Aren't Like What You Think (Quite the Opposite Actually)

Growing up, I was known as the “#quiet, nerdy kid”. I didn’t talk much during meals, at school, or social gatherings. Often, #people thought I was anti-social or lacking presentation skills. Some of my friends even had the first impression that I hated them when we first met. Just because I didn’t talk (and with my RBF), they assumed I didn’t want to befriend them. Or there were times in conversations, I didn’t engage in them and people thought I was silently judging all of them, but in fact, I…
