5 Articles that are 7 times more fun that’s what’s on your shampoo bottle.
1. I have mentioned (several times) that I’m introverted, which I can control when I have at least one of my friends around, so you may even not notice it. But when I’m alone, surrounded by people I don’t know, this goes to the extents of me feeling completely anxious and barely talking (probably looking boring or at least bored). And I talk! Ask my friends. I love talking! (also, ask them about that boring thing, they may not feel like saying it to my face *laughing-its-ass-off emoji*) But, then, even though I was never comfortable among unfamiliar faces, talking to strangers always freaked me out in a way, and I always needed to recharge alone after socializing, my introversion was not always this intense. So, what changed? Or even better, since it changed, so it’s possible, how can I change it so that it works better for me? I’ve found this amazing article by the Collective Hub, it gave me (at least some) of the right answers, and some tips that I’m definitely trying out, and if you want to know how you can change this (cause let’s face it, it’s bad for business) and be able to talk to anyone, jump here.
2. Happiness is something we all strive to achieve. And we can all have a very different image of what happiness is. For example, some might find themselves at their happiest when they’re with the person they love, or walking their dog, building sand castles with their kids on a sunny beach day, others may think of happiness as that luxury villa with ocean-view, Netflix and Chill, a family/friends barbecue + beer in the backyard, successful business, and so on and so on. But, happiness is much more than that one moment, or event, or accomplishment, or one single emotion. It has even less to with objects, it’s a state of being. I actually believe that we ourselves choose to be happy or unhappy. I’m not the only one, for sure. And there’s actually a very simple practice that can help you be a much happier person. It has to do something with focus, so I suggest you put yours here, for a couple of minutes, and learn what it is.
3. Not everyone is a fun of history, but what if it was made simple? Instead of going through pages about what happened the first night of the world war 2 (when you’re a kid and history matters only if it’s about that thing that happened in the hall in school earlier that morning), what if all was put in one picture (1.000 words, right?). The Bored Panda has selected 50+ memes each of which perfectly sums up everything you need to know about an entire historical event.
4. This has to be one of the (several) best DIY I’ve seen lately. Palm Springs inspired Colorful-Front-Door Cases for Glasses! So, so cool! Check this great DIY here.
*Also, how do you feel about a bright and colorful front door? I’d like mine to be the front door of the TARDIS (at least color-wise), and this shouldn’t come as a surprise at all. What about you?
5. Expressing my creativity, either making something from scratch, drawing, writing for the blog and/or whatnot, always calms me. When I set my mind to create something, it goes into its own world. I can go hours making something, gluing, sewing, writing, doodling (omg, this word really cracks me up) and I wouldn’t even notice the time. It’s my meditation! And I think everyone should try it! And not just because I said so, or because it’s fun (cause it really is), but because there is proof that letting yourself get creative (as busy as you may be), can actually benefit you and your overall health and well-being. Actually, especially if you’re constantly on the run. And here is a detailed view on why you should spend more time being creative.
