The Subtle Art Of Having Sex When Kids Are Home: Sex is not just a pleasurable couple of minutes, it’s the ultimate form of intimacy partners share - and if you have kids in the house then you obviously know what I am talking about. This isn’t your first rodeo. However the dynamic does change once kids enter the picture. Sometimes the quality of sex goes down. More than likely the amount of sex goes down too. Nothing worse than being in the moment and ready to get down only to hear a knock on the door from a child that likes to make up a thousand reasons why sleep and them aren’t friends. Depending on the sleep journey your child has taken they may not even be knocking at the door, they may have a foot in your back because they are sleeping in your bed. So no knocking on the door but no knocking boots either. We have to fix this!

Why ‘I’m Happy But Could Be Happier’ Mentality Is Ruining Our Relationships: Happiness is something we should strive for in every aspect of life but most importantly in our relationships. Happiness in relationships means something different to everyone; a kiss before work every morning or adventures to new places but are we compromising this happiness by second guessing how we’re really feeling? I’ve heard the phrase ‘I’m happy but could be happier’ bounced around a lot recently; constantly repeated by the contestants on Love Island and scrutinised on Twitter. It’s pretty self-explanatory but the phrase implies you’re not content with your current relationship and are always searching for more. It’s like the proverb ‘the grass is always greener on the other side’. As a society, we’re always looking for the next target to hit, the next fashion fad to invest in, the next social media craze and sadly – our next relationship. Is the grass really greener on the other side? Should we really speculate about what could be? Obviously, you don’t know until you try but 21st Century relationships are bearing the brunt of this attitude. We’ve turned into frivolous, indecisive commitment-phobes who can’t be bothered to fight for our relationships.

5 Body Language Mistakes You Should Avoid At Work: Your communication skills might not be good like others but keep in mind that you don’t have to speak to communicate with others. Your hand gestures, the way you sit and even your facial expression are telling a lot about you without knowing it. You are probably not going to keep an eye on every item on this list in the beginning but once you start fixing your body languages one by one, you will get used to them and “unconscious competence” will take place.

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? But I bet deep down half of you reading this can relate.

7 Foolproof Ways To Gain Self Confidence On Your Own: I know many people that suffer with low self-confidence, including myself. And when a person feels that way, it can really mess up your life. When it comes to relationships, you constantly need reassuring that this guy/girl likes you because you're always wondering why they're with you. On a night out with friends, you might feel slightly down in the dumps when it comes to dolling up because compared to your friends, you're a solid 6 while they're sliding in to double figures. This is me to a T and you know what? It's time to stop. Here's some top tips I've told myself recently that I'm going to live by that I think would do you the world of good too if you feel the same way.

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.

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.

The 5 Hidden Secrets Of Effective Communication: Humans are not clear communicators, by and large. We all think we communicate clearly with each other both in writing and verbally – but it’s astonishing when you really analyze peoples’ communications and then what they truly wanted to convey and realize how different what they thought they said is from what was understood. My best friend is actually a Master Communicator (MC), which often drives me nuts. She’s constantly asking for clarification on things I think are so obvious that it almost feels like she’s being obtuse at times. Yet the more I come to understand the importance of being crystal clear in my writing and speaking, the more I comprehend why she does what she does. It’s not to be a nitpicker… it’s a way to teach the other person that they are not being nearly as clear in expressing their thought as they believe they are. A stark example of this for the past year has been my landlord. In roughly ninety percent of our conversations, I have a very hard time understanding what he’s telling me. He speaks fast, his sentences are hastily constructed and incomplete…he just doesn’t think before speaking. It all makes for a major job just to get through a conversation with him and come out the other end with any sort of idea what we just talked about. My MC friend came to the following conclusion: he thinks he’s communicating better than he is.
