I'm not an expert on these subjects, but that is kind of the point; discovery and wondering will give us a unique perspective as we learn about the amazing secrets of these sciences together! Of course, I have researched, and I do try to be accurate in the factual information I provide. However, I'm by trait an artist, so you'll have to understand I also enjoy taking a creative approach to wonder about these topics in some of my fantastic possibilities. I invite you to do the same; it's fun! Give your mind permission to be curious as we wonder together about these sciences.
If you showed a computer to someone from 200 years ago, what would they think of it? Without power, it is as lifeless as a black mirror, but add an electric current, and suddenly you can explore entirely interactive 3D environments in games with people on the other side of the world! You can play movies and music and design things. And you have basically all the ...

Are we still allowed to wonder? When I was young, I used to wonder about everything. I think most kids did. I would ask questions about how the world works. Sometimes I wanted to know the answer, but other times I think I just enjoyed the mystery of thinking about the many possibilities. For me, wondering was a form of creativity. I can fill in the possibilities for patterns we find in life, or mysteries in physics, or animals or people's behavior. Often it inspires further research, but sometimes it was just about wondering.
As we grow older, I think we are not so encouraged to wonder. We learn that science seems to have an answer for most things, and most of those creative possibilities you imagined are actually wrong. You can learn a lot from science, but sometimes I miss just wondering freely.
Lately, I've enjoyed getting in touch with my curiosity again by going for walks in nature and allowing myself to wonder...

There's no running away from it. Every year the planet everyone likes to blame for things going wrong, technology malfunctions, and late flights goes retrograde. This is, of course, Mercury we are talking about. The first Mercury retrograde of the year is happening on January 31st, starting at 26 degrees of Aquarius. This retrograde will last until February 20th, when Mercury stations direct at 11 degrees of the same sign.
There is a lot to unpack with this coming retrograde. February itself is quite the astrologically eventful month. For that reason, we will skip straight to the planetary forecast. If you are not so familiar with the concept of retrogrades or would like to take a more in-depth study of this planetary condition, you can refer to the blog post on the previous retrograde, called How to Navigate the Last Mercury Retrograde of the Year. It would also be interesting to revisit the last retrograde as both are connected through the same...
What have the older people in your life told you about growing up? Perhaps they have told you time and again of the importance of living light. They remind you that it is always best to let go of the things you cannot change, love fully, and look on the bright side. Many older people are experts at detoxifying their lives without having a name for it.
But then again, a life detox is not just about knowing what you want to keep in your life. It’s not just about getting rid of negativity, either. The truth is, when you decide to detoxify your life, you must be ready to embrace all the things that make you who you are, even the bad things.
Does detoxification mean becoming a minimalist? When the items in your home represent the things and feelings you are meant to let go of, there’s no point in keeping them. Living light is not just about letting go of material things. Though it does help to lighten the load, it does not revolve around that...
Do you find yourself in an annoying or a rather stressful situation?
Even people who believe they are calm and level-headed can still find themselves under a lot of pressure and anxiety. The distressing circumstances they find themselves in may push their patience to the limit. This situation could bring about feelings of frustration and maybe even anger.
Every person has their own way of dealing with stress. Some binge eat to fend off all those feelings, and others drown themselves with more work to forget about how frustrated they have been feeling.
Turning to astrology and consulting the cosmos has become comforting for many. They tap into the power of intuition to allow themselves to process their stress and emotions accordingly. When everything feels so wrong, they turn to the tarot cards for help.
The tarot cards lend themselves to anyone and everyone who wishes to navigate themselves...
Are you suffering from a miserable marriage, or do you often ask yourself, “Should I stay in my relationship?” Being with another person is not going to be great all the time. There are pros and cons to each relationship that we should all consider before committing to a person. If we don’t think things through thoroughly, we may find ourselves in a situation where it’s too good to leave and too bad to stay.
It’s not just in relationships that we encounter this problem with commitment. There are times when we just do our work for the sake of finishing our tasks. How often have we done something quickly so that we can get it over with? It no longer matters to us whether the job was done to the best of our abilities or not. We want it off our to-do list, so we haphazardly finish it.
Another typical example is our commitment to dieting and working out. It often starts at the beginning of the year as a New Year’s resolution. But after...
Do you know what triggers your employees' innate motivations? While their pay is a strong motivator, studies show that what really pushes employees to do their best is the emotion behind their job and if they feel appreciated. Motivation theories say that in order to keep their employees motivated, in addition to the things mentioned above, managers also need to learn how to reach the individual.
There are several types of motivation strategies, but only a few will be effective for your team. It is your responsibility as a leader to figure out what will work the best.

If you can create a culture of inspiration and motivation within your workplace, your employees will enthusiastically come to work day after day. Here are eight tips to get you started:
Do you feel stressed because you have too much to do? Have you ever considered that perhaps it isn’t that you don’t have enough time, but perhaps you have misplaced feelings of anxiety? Or possibly, and this may be a hard pill to swallow, you may have poor time management?
Like most people, you may feel like you don’t have enough time on your hands. However, experts say that your feelings, while valid, don’t reflect reality. Sometimes, the feeling is caused by several different factors that do not include time at all.
So why does it feel like you always need more time?
Did you get so excited to accomplish a lot in your day that you wrote down too many things to do on your list? While it may seem like a good idea to have a loaded list as it might encourage you to work harder, it could often cause those feelings of anxiety.

All the things found on Earth are made up of energy. Natural objects, people, and even human-made items are made up of billions of molecules that interact with each other, working with the energy they have to keep their forms and to perform their functions.
