No one wants to be unhappy. We can mostly accept this as an universal truth. We often actively seek to avoid unhappiness even though it does come for all of us: breakups, school failings, disappointments in personal relationships, frustrations at work.
I’ve been through some rough breakups, and one in particular left me reeling, the pain overtaking me.
Everyone experiences tiredness at work sometimes. At some point (usually around 2:00 PM), you find yourself ready for a nap. Your energy fluctuates naturally throughout the day.
Vacations in a rented home always seem so restful, which isn’t strictly because it’s a vacation; a lot of it has to do with a sense of no responsibility.
An average adult reads about 200 words per minute (WPM). A speed reader, though, reads about 1,500 WPM.
Most people wouldn’t think that empathy has a downside or limits, but in our relationships it’s not always a positive tool.
The first six months of a relationship are wonderful. There are flowers, candy and hundreds of emoji filled texts that are promptly read and responded to.
People often talk about creativity and inspiration as if it is a thing totally distinct from them. That ideas generate themselves spontaneously, or as if it is a trait that some people are born without and can’t ever gain.
People have been complaining about the battery life of their phones. With heavy use, a fully charged smartphone can still hardly last a day.
When you were young, the friends you made tend to be defined by common experience, for example living in the same neighborhood, going to the same school, having parents who are friends, riding the same bus, or participating in the same sports or extracurricular activities.
I’d like you to imagine waking up tomorrow with no limitations whatsoever. How would you spend your day?
It’s camping season! Many people want to get closer to nature and camp in the wild, but they don’t really know which essentials they need and how to find them at the right price.
When you’re in a relationship, you can develop some funny habits with the person you’re with. It could be constant sharing of an inside joke, the expectation that they will always finish your meal at a restaurant, or something less cutesy.
The statistics are dismal. A recent study has found that 69% of people feel trapped in the same old routine, and only 3 out of 10 people are happy with their lives. People are feeling stuck.
Successful people read a lot. But they don’t just read anything and everything. They read specifically for self-improvement, education and success.
Everything and every time we think, we are projecting our own view on reality.  Revolutionary Systems Thinker and professor at Cornell University Derek Cabrera remarked, “When we understand the world as being the result of systems of relationships, we better approximate reality.” I recently came across Derek’s book Systems Thinking Made Simple: New Hope for Solving Wicked Problems and I was hooked!
I’ve recently trained a guy that is complaining about back problems. This person is completely young, muscular and mentally fit.
Stretching for lower back pain is a very common practice. Most people do it straight in the morning, right after waking up and are often implementing a far too rigorous stretching routine.
Let’s face it, many try to climb the career ladder, but few succeed. As the CEO of Lifehack, I’ve seen a lot of employees trying to rise higher in their career, but unfortunately, the majority of them fail.
Back in high school, my best friend and I would hang out all the time. We were in the same grade, we lived pretty close to each other, and we shared a lot of interests – tennis, the piano, and reading.
