5 Things No One Tells You About Surviving Your Twenties: You are trying to figure yourself out whilst watching everyone around you seem to know what they are doing and how they are going to do it. One of your school friends has 3 kids and already celebrating married life, then on the other side of life your other friend still can’t tie their own shoelaces. Whilst watching them seem to figure out their life so easily, you’ll sit there and wonder why you don’t have a clue how to progress in this so-called life. Before you know it 3 years have passed, you’re in the same dead-end job and you can’t wait to drown your sorrows on the weekends. Maybe this is just me?

How To Turn Your Pessimism Into Happiness With 10 Easy Steps: Most people would probably agree that being nice to others is not only extremely important, but should be one of our top priorities in life. However, I wonder how many people actually make a conscious and continuous effort to encourage and spread joy to others. I know I often completely forget to! I imagine that many of the reasons we avoid the task is because we feel it will take too much time out of our already busy lives, or use some of the energy that we are preserving for the million and one things that we need to do that day. In this post, I am going to provide a few ideas of ways you can be nice to people and spread some happiness, without taking up much of your precious time and energy, in the hope that if we all make the decision to carry out some of these, we can help inject a little bit of joy into people’s lives, which can make more of a difference than you would ever think! 1. Smile It is amazing how much difference such a tiny gesture can make to someone’s day. It is such an easy task, yet really could cheer someone up or be exactly what someone was needing at that time. 2. Show Interest If you’re in a situation where you’re going to be spending more than a few seconds with someone (such as paying at a till or standing in a queue with someone) why not ask them how their day is going? It is such a small thing, but often just the knowledge that someone cares can be enough to completely change the mindset or mood of another person. 3. Offer Help This is similar to the last point, but if you see someone struggling, in whatever way, it really will not take much of your time to assist them a little bit. If it turns out the task they are struggling with requires more time or ability than you can offer, do what you can and I’m sure they will be grateful. 4. Speaking/Acting With Respect This is another super easy one, which I’m sure a lot of us do without thinking about it anyway, but often all it takes is to simply show respect to someone. Just small things like saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, or saying ‘excuse me’ etc. can really make a difference. It’s often considered basic manners, but I think that when someone treats you with complete respect it can be really encouraging. 5. Interactions On Social Media A really easy way to spread joy is to interact with people on social media platforms. It can be as easy as liking/retweeting someone’s tweet or commenting on someone’s instagram and blog. Again, it’s often just their knowledge that someone is thinking of them and appreciating what they are doing that can really make someone’s day. 6. Compliments It makes me feel a little guilty when I think about how little I actually make the effort to compliment someone, especially face-to-face. It’s a bit ridiculous the amount of times a day I’ll think about how much I like someone’s outfit, or love their makeup, or think that they seem really nice, but just never actually tell what I’m thinking. I know that when someone has complimented me on something it has always completely improved my mood and made me feel so much better about myself, so I’m sure it would have the same effect on others too! 7. Encouragement If you see someone attempting to do something, or struggling with something, it really does not take much time to just say a couple of words of encouragement, and this could really lift their spirits and give them the motivation and boost that they need. 8. Keep Negative Opinions To Yourself I think that when we see something we don’t like or don’t agree with, it can be so easy to start talking about your opinions, whether it be to the person you disagree with, or to others behind the persons’ back. However, these kinds of comments can really hurt someone’s feeling and knock their confidence, so I think one thing it can be really good to do is to just leave it. Unless what they are doing is hurting others or is being offensive, it’s often much nicer to just not say anything. I did a post on my blog about Gossiping (https://judanna.co.uk/gossiping-wheres-the-line) if you would like to read more about the topic! 9. Listen If someone has an issue or something they are worrying about, sometimes the nicest thing you can do is just be there for them and listen. It will not take much of your time and effort but will really benefit them. 10. Support I think a really simple way to show people your appreciation for them, or the work they do, is to support whatever they are doing. Whether this be encouraging them, interacting with their work, or financially supporting them (if you are in a situation which allows you to do so), supporting others is such a good way of spreading some happiness. These are a few ideas I have come up with, but if you have any more feel free to comment them down below so other people can see them. You will probably have noticed some key themes throughout these points! Basically, show people you respect, support and care for them, and it can make the world a happier place. Don’t forget that when people receive kindness, often their immediate reaction will be to spread the joy to someone else, so although your actions may seem small and slightly insignificant, they could make a much bigger impact than you could ever think. I really hope this post will have encouraged you to spread a little bit of joy into someone’s life whenever you can. We live in a world where there is so much hurt and suffering, but sometimes small acts of kindness can make a huge difference.

4 Things To Cultivate In Your Twenties If You Want To Have A Successful Life: Each of us may have a different definition of what success means, but one thing is for sure there is not one person on this earth who does not have a dream of finally “making it”. Whether that be something as huge as graduating from college and getting the job of your dreams or a small success like learning how to network in order to build business relationships, you need tools to get there. At 34 years old, there are definitely a lot of things that I wish I had done differently in my twenties. But when you are in your twenties there can be numerous distractions, internal conflicts, and just plain ole laziness going on. Taking the time to work on some qualities that could put you on a path to success is not a bad idea though. Especially if you are not married or have children, trust me, you will thank yourself later. It was only in my thirties that I realized how much time I wasted by not doing critical things like really focusing on my goals and having more confidence in myself. I would be miles ahead in certain areas of my life if I had believed in myself more and stopped second guessing everything I did. I came across an article about how to think like a winner and thought to myself, “I wish that I had worked on some of these attributes in my twenties!” So I compiled a list of the four most important things that I believe will light your future on fire if you learn how to master them early on in life.

4 Productivity Styles to Help You Manage Your Time Effectively At Work: We have all struggled with properly managing our time at one point or another. These struggles may lead to vows of never procrastinating again or creating some elaborate organization system that will be completely abandoned after only a week or two. But what if you learned about your productivity style instead of solely focusing on strategies to manage your time? According to workplace expert Carson Tate, knowing your productivity style and yielding to it can ultimately save you time. She believes that we all have unique ways of being productive at work, school, and in our everyday lives. The instinctual ways that we tackle a long to-do list or a week full of project deadlines, is what we should learn to trust and perfect. Productivity is hindered when we rely more on time saving strategies than or own natural ways of doing things. In Tate’s book, Work Simply, she outlines 4 major productivity styles that can be used to work smarter.

6 Things I Learned In My First Year Of University: Things are going to happen. This was a lesson I learned in my first few days. There will be fire alarms at 7 AM, random parent drop-ins, and other assorted mini-crises. If you try and prepare for all of them, the universe is just going to find the one thing you didn’t think of anyways. And besides, all that worrying is a sure-fire way to burn yourself out.

Why Do You Feel Sad & Guilty After Sex: Descriptions of “post-coital sadness” go all the way back to our ancient annals of medicine. Greek physician and philosopher Galen once observed, “Every animal is sad after coitus except the human female and the rooster.” That post-sex or orgasm feeling of depression, sadness, angst, and general ennui can last anywhere from five minutes to two hours. The most recent study that was done came out in October 2015 and it found that among the quite limited white, heterosexual female study population that it interviewed, 46% of people interviewed had experienced it at some point and a little over 5% experienced it on a regular basis. We don’t have any good data on how prevalent this is among people who are not straight, white, cis-gender women but anecdotally we do know this happens within the broader population. Do you think if empirically overlooking men’s experiences with this have to do with our stereotypes about women being more emotionally invested in sex and also being likelier to cry while we assume that men always – always – always want sex.
