Without a doubt, this year has been one of the most universally challenging in the past few decades. We started what was supposed to be the new roaring 20s on the wrong foot, but somehow we are still here and have managed to foster our way into this present moment. With the year's steady progression (in the northern hemisphere), you are just starting to see the coming winter's signs. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a commonly experienced symptom of the season, but how do we prepare for it when—at times—the whole year has felt like one long winter? Generally, we can take a few steps to soothe the emotional pain caused by this mental ailment, but with the additional challenge of working around COVID-19, some aspects of winter self-care might have to adapt and change. To experience the spiritual and physical metamorphosis that the planet we reside on is going through, we will have to get through this winter whole. As we wait for...
What do you do when you wake up in the morning? Do you check your work email even before you get out of bed? Do you make a list of the things you need to do for the day and begin to quietly worry about how you are going to make it through?
The first thing that you do in the morning is what will bring you true success. So if you are spending it worrying about things beyond your control, what kind of future does that give you? Are you getting the most out of life?
The first five minutes of your day and what you do with it will frame how the entire day will go. It sets up your mood and tells how you will feel as you go through the day. Remember, everything you think about in the morning will bring you to action.
In truth, the first five minutes of your day count because what you do with it or what you think of during this time could make or break your day. It could determine the kind of relationship you...
Money is what makes the world go around. When people don't have it, they feel they need it badly. But when they have a lot of it, they only feel that they want to have more. Money may not be able to buy love and happiness, but it gives people a sense of security and freedom.
From the fleeting feeling of shopping for things that you love down to emergencies, money makes it seem like everything about life is dependent on it. Is it possible to minimize the financial stress that you deal with? Is there a way you can improve your money choices and make you feel comfortable with it?
The best way to do it is through tarot finance. What do the cards reveal about your finances?
An individual's financial situation could be a good source of comfort, but it could be a source of unwanted stress. When it seems as if you have tried your best to reach financial stability, but it seems something always happens and ruins it, you...
Better sleep is natural to achieve. Whether we perceive that we are getting perfect sleep right now or not, there are simple things that we can do before bedtime that is guaranteed to communicate to your bodies that the time for rest is upon us.
Getting better sleep is not complicated and not necessarily expensive. We don't necessarily need to purchase highly technical equipment or upgrade our bedroom. We can do straightforward things to work WITH our body's natural functions that will make our night's rest deeper and more effective.
Your body needs sleep, so if you eat your food close to bedtime, your body will continue to digest it and, in essence, not be as restful as it could be. It uses and releases energy into your system while the conscious you are attempting to allow the body to rest. There is a conflict here.
Your skin is an organ, the largest organ in your body—coolness signals to this organ the messages that are associated with...
“What are you so afraid of?” When young children are asked this question, they usually automatically talk about monsters and ugly creatures that come in their sleep and give them nightmares. For young adults, they think of everything that makes them feel insecure about themselves.
While everyone tells you to embrace imperfection, it becomes so much harder to do when you also have to keep up with other people’s expectations. You hate to disappoint those you care about, so you try your best to achieve perfection or something close to it.
You are not perfect, nobody is, but your attempt to overcome your imperfections is slowly hurting you in ways you cannot imagine. Your refusal to accept these imperfections is taking you farther away from who you are.
Embracing imperfection, they say, is your gift to the world. But how does that happen?
Imperfections are a part of everyone. It is one of the things that...
What makes you tick? The things that make people work vary from person to person. However, there are three basic things that are essential to make everyone as productive as they want themselves to be: money, energy, and time.
If you have the energy, you can push yourself to become more productive in the world. If you have money, you have the liberty to push yourself to be better. And if you have the time, you can accomplish what you want and become unstoppable. You can do anything and be anything that you want.
If you are reading this, you are probably missing at least one of the three. What you don't have varies from day to day. Sometimes, within the day, it feels like you have run out of either of the three. It seems all three factors become scarce in the course of life, depending on how old you are.
Have you ever found yourself feeling down after listening to a friend talk about her problems? Or have you ever felt enormous joy after learning that your good friend gave birth to her first baby? Did it seem like good and bad situations happened to you?
These instances where you show care and compassion towards people you care about are experienced by many people. It is called having empathy.
While people experience the feeling, they know very little about what empathy actually is. It is considered as the experience of feeling what others feel and understanding their thoughts. Simply put, empathy is all about putting yourself in other people's shoes.
Often, emotional empathy is confused with the concept of sympathy. While the two ideas may be similar in thought, sympathy is the feeling usually expressed in sorrowful situations. Empathy, on the other hand, covers both happy and sad times.
Empathy in the workplace is...
Bad things can happen to anyone, both in their personal and professional lives. Sometimes, relationships, no matter how hard you work on them, just end. Significant people in your life could die, and they leave you brokenhearted.
There are days when you don't want to go to the office, knowing that a colleague will be getting the promotion you wished for yourself. Sometimes, the burden of doing a lot in the workplace with little to no thanks can take its toll on you.
In the advent of all these negative situations, how can you keep yourself from falling apart? How do you teach yourself to move on and start anew? Is there anything you can do to become more resilient?
A "how to live a happy life" essay would always end on a positive note. It would speak of the importance of happiness and how one could bring joy in his own life. A happy mind happy life mindset can always do wonders. But before you reach that aspect...

When it comes to talking about aliens, most people have an immediate reaction to the subject, and it's rarely warm and fuzzy. If you're like most people, your only experience with aliens comes from watching movies and television, and that programming is filled with scenes of abduction, horror, suspense, and feelings of being powerless in the presence of a UFO.
How many of you reading this have a fear of aliens? I find this to be a fascinating subject because I once had a fear of aliens too. I didn't want to look at them, talk about them, or even think about them. When I thought of them, I only saw grey aliens' faces and had flashbacks to scary scenes in Unsolved Mysteries episodes from my childhood.
That all changed about four years ago when I moved to Sedona, Arizona. I was participating in an Alpha brainwave training at an institute called Biocybernaut. During the seven days of training, your brain is hooked up to biofeedback...
First, let me say that trusting yourself is not an activity that you do once, and it is done forever. There are multiple levels and dimensions both of TRUST and SELF. As you level up your ability to perceive more of you, you will be redefining the idea of “you” altogether. Therefore the process of getting to know and trust yourself is a practice, not an achievement.
Initially acting upon synchronicity does take a bit of blindness, but it can be done rationally and experientially, with feedback.
To more fully act upon synchronistic opportunities, you have to be ready for action.
Think about a lightning strike. In just a few microseconds, the energetic equivalent of over 100 barrels of petroleum is released. Consistently channeling this energy into an electrical grid would produce an enormous amount of sustainable energy for a very long time. The excitement of that fraction of a second would energetically carry itself into the future. All that is...
