Do you have your share of lousy family habits? The issue of lousy family habits is not restricted to a particular race or religion. Everyone all over the world recognizes that their family does something they could definitely do without.
In this fast-paced world, everyone wants to develop good habits in their children. They want the kids to grow up only mirroring the good practices the family follows. However, this change won't happen overnight. Everyone in the family must contribute to make it happen.
Habits are repeated actions that people learn to do in a given situation. Whenever the condition occurs, the action happens. While you cannot control situations from happening, you are definitely in control of how you react to it.
Remember that children can easily pick up and follow bad habits. Soon, they will mimic everyone's overall health and lifestyle. The sooner that you acknowledge these bad habits, the easier it will be for you to change it.
However, be warned...
How many books were you able to read last year? If it's more than four or five, how did you do it? How did you digest so many new narratives in a year?

How much time do you spend with technology? If you spend at least 4 to 6 hours of your leisure time in front of your computer, tablet, or mobile phone, you are definitely hooked to digital life. Digital addiction has not only infected you, but it has affected practically everyone. The only real problem is that people who are suffering from this type of addiction are unaware that it is an actual problem.

Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are just some of the social media sites that are designed to get you hooked. They use a kind of positive reinforcement that...
Everyone has been there: a big project comes up, and many things need to be done. Every task seems as urgent as everything else. It requires everyone in the office to help. Every other task has taken a back seat.
All of a sudden, it feels like everything in your life needs to take the back seat. Work has to be a priority at this time, and you can’t do anything about it. Your personal life takes a huge hit. You begin to spend more time at work, clocking in more hours than you used to.
When you retire at night, it still feels like you haven’t done a lot. The list of things to do still seems to go on and on. Before you know it, you forget about everything else and put all your focus on work.
When was the last time you took a break? You can’t remember because weeks have passed since you last relaxed. Whenever you ask yourself about work-life balance, you only end up asking yourself what that even means.
All these stressful...
Generally, everyone had a simpler life when they were young, especially considering all the challenges and the responsibilities that you have to deal with today. The truth is, life is easy if you know how to practice simple living.
The only difference between then and now is that the older a person gets, the more they complicate their situation. Over time, you end up making your life difficult. You start losing who you really are. You begin to want things you don't need.
Not everything that you want will be yours. Sometimes things don't go your way, and that's okay. Sometimes, you will feel like something is missing, but you have to teach yourself to deal with that.
The moment you let your emotions take control, you are setting yourself up for...
Everyone has been there. You've been following your healthy diet for a few weeks, but then you decided to binge-eat a bunch of junk over the weekend. You say to yourself, "I deserve it. I've been so good." You promised yourself you would start working out more, so you decided to hit the gym after work every day for a week. You were able to do it for two days, but it became difficult to get off the couch, mainly because things have been hectic at work.
You plan for your future and get excited about all your career plans. Then you realized you wouldn't be able to do it because your everyday responsibilities are getting in your way.
You are scared to return to any of your plans.
You became scared because if only your habit tracker could speak, it will tell you how much of a quitter you are.
Everyone has been there. But as often as it feels like you've failed yourself, you will realize something important about your life.
All the small things that get...
How do you teach yourself to always be prepared? No matter how bad the experience may be, there is still more that can go wrong.
While everyone wishes they could predict the future, the only thing anyone can do is prepare for it. As the famous saying goes, it is best to be prepared for the worst. That way, when the best things happen, at least you’re taken by a positive surprise.
While preparation for life is something that people busy themselves with, you should also try not to miss out on the good times. The fear of tomorrow will not take you anywhere. It will only make you anxious about the next step.
Even if you prepared for the worst, do not forget to stop and take a deep breath.
Life is about living. It is not about worrying about what the future may bring.
It is more about striking the right balance between being ready for anything and living in the moment.
The uncertainty of the future...
How distracted do you feel these days? Your ability to focus is sometimes compromised when you are dealing with too many things at a time. While telling yourself to focus may be something easy to do, it requires a lot from your end.

But how do you make sure that you don’t lose concentration? When there are just too many thoughts inside your head, it can be quite hard to focus. Sometimes, it can be frustrating to know that you want to get things done, but you don’t. You end up procrastinating, thinking that nothing can be done now to get things done.
It is best to draw yourself healthy boundaries to help you get focused and manage distractions. Resist the urge to procrastinate. Here are four tips to help you get it right.

Being an adult can be stressful, but it also has its perks. When we were younger, we didn’t have the means to travel whenever we wanted to. Now, we have full control of our resources, which are our time and money. If you’re thinking about the responsibilities of being...
If you were challenged to only check your email twice per day, do you think you could do it? Probably, but that’s not the catch. Along with only checking your email twice per day, you have to complete everything you have to do within 30 minutes. Will you survive?
