One of the most common sources of stress is the conflict between work and family. Since we are living in a productivity-driven society, there are more and more people who are finding it difficult to adequately fulfill their roles both at home and at the workplace. Most of the time, workers are not able to find a point of balance when it comes to their careers and their families, as there is always one that is given the more priority than the other. And because of this, it has become the root of a lot of problems.
Therefore, it is essential that people learn how to achieve balance when it comes to work and family life. It may seem like a very daunting tasks but a lot of people have already done this, which means that there is no reason why you can’t do it.
We all want to love and at the same time, we all want to be loved. Both feelings take us higher and it makes us feel oh-so good. However, for the people who find love elusive to them, you will be surprised that there are ways for you to love and be loved in return. You might not just be looking at it the way you should be looking at love.
You see, love is such a big word yet the word itself is easily passed among humans. Love itself is a powerful emotion and it should only be said and felt, when it is really there. The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “love” is a person of the opposite sex. Let’s face it, most of us are so caught up in finding the perfect romantic partner in our lives. However, love is not just about that. The good news is that, love is everywhere.
It Starts With You
This is a very important thing that you should always keep in mind. Love starts and ends with you. The inner voice inside of you is where love starts. It is difficult to feel worthy of love is when someone is criticizing you all the time especially if that someone is the one talking inside your head. In order to love yourself, you have to stop comparing yourself with others; you have to stop hating yourself over past mistakes. Dare to be proud of yourself by looking at your strengths. Be mindful of negative talk.
There are times when you immediately know that a relationship is over. This is usually the time when you can’t stand to look at the person and everything that person says or does makes you want to cringe or roll your eyes. However, there are other times when you are not so cut and dry and you’re just not totally sure that breaking up is the right thing to do. In order to help ease your confusion, here are four no-fail signs that it’s time to break up with that person and hit the road.
The Person is On The Periphery When It Comes to Future Plans
When you start thinking about the future such as your plans and goals, this person is just on the periphery of whatever it is you see yourself doing that could mean your feelings have faded to the point of no return. These are when things are good and the relationship is strong, you usually want the same things, so if you were thinking about moving to a different state or volunteering overseas, you would want to find a way to do it together – not be going solo.
You Become Indifferent
Ruts happen in relationships all the time, which is why it can be difficult to make a decision when to move on and when to ride it out. However, indifference usually spells disaster. If you can’t be bothered to even get mad when your partner does something stupid or you don’t care either way if that person gets promoted or not, you’ve most likely lost that feeling that you had before. In this case, it is highly suggested that you seriously look at your feelings and determine whether you can still reignite it or not. If not, then it’s time to move on.
There are a lot of things that guys can overlook when it comes to dating and deciding whether a girl has staying power, but other things have the potential to send them running for the hills. So, if you are in a new relationship with a guy whom you think is amazing, think twice before you show him any of the following behaviors:
No guys enjoy being with someone who loves to whine. Sure, we all get those moments when we don’t get our way or when things are not going right at all. However, if you’re the type of person who finds fault in everything and you’re not afraid to voice it, you might want to consider the consequences of all that complaining. If you don’t like something, it is fine to let people know, it’s when you don’t like anything at all that causes problems. Hearing someone whine constantly has a way of draining the fun out of every situation, so if you want to hold on your man, then you might want to consider holding your tongue.
Complaining about Your Weight
So you gained a few pounds, and you complain about it right away. Reality check: most guys won’t even notice that you’ve gained and if they do, they don’t really care about it. It makes them crazy when the women in their lives don’t stop complaining about their weight and anything related to it. Going on and on about your physical flaws is a huge turn-off and a lot of guys won’t stick around to hear that.
An organized life is something that most of us want to achieve yet some of us struggle to get things organized. Here’s a fact: the organized people are not born that way. It’s all about the habits that they have and speaking of habits; the organized people have healthy habits that help them to stay organized. This simply means that you can be an organized person as well if you want to and it all starts by cultivating healthy organizational habits.
Write Things Down
There is always someone in our circle of friends who remember every birthday and sends cards for every holiday. If you want to be just like that, you have to start writing thing down. Instead of trying to put everything in mind, write them down or put it on your smartphone.
Have Schedules and Deadlines
The organized people don’t waste their time because they are aware that keeping things organized goes hand-in-hand with staying productive. They make sure that they make and keep schedules for the day and week. They have deadlines and set goals. And aside from that, the most important thing of all is that they stick to it.
If you wait too long to do something, you will find it harder to get things done. If you want your life to be less stressful and less demand, then you have to organize it as soon as you can. If you put in the effort to get things done as soon as possible, it will lift the weight off of you from doing it later.
Give Everything a Home
It is so easy to get lost if you don’t have a home. By simply keeping your life organized means keeping your things in their proper places. The organized people keep order by storing things properly and labeling storage spaces. You have to make sure that all things have their own homes and are properly stored.
It is important that you find the time to organize every week. The highly organized people ensure that they find time every week or more, to organize their things. Always remember that your things will not stay organized on its own.
They say communication is the keystone to an amazing relationship. There are ways to have an open communication with your partner every day. Whether it’s simple questions about the past or talking about deeper topics, getting to know your partner’s goals, likes and dislikes will help you establish a closer bond in the long run.
“What do you see for us in the future?”
Yes, sound so cliché! Before you open up this topic or as that question, you have to make sure not to drop this one on a casual kind of way. This means that you only have to ask this to your partner if you are in a serious relationship. The dating kind of relationship is definitely not the best situation to ask this because you might send the other one running for the hills.
This is the kind of conversation that freaks men out and some women as well. However, if you notice that your partner is worried about the question then it means that he/she is afraid to lose you, which means that you have to take that as a good sign. By looking into what the future might hold for the two of you in your partner’s mind will provide you with a better idea of what kind of relationship that you can expect in the long run. You have to keep in mind here that the “I don’t know” answer is acceptable as well. Why? This is because no one really knows what the future really holds and most of the time; it takes some time for a relationship to fully develop. There are times when relationships are just about having fun. It is always good to know where you stand.
Just like everyone in this world, we all want to be financially stable so we can enjoy a decent and secure life. However, individuals who are on fixed incomes are often worried about inflation and the risings costs of goods and services. There is also the threat of unemployment or job loss that makes these people fear their financial security. A lot of people face insurmountable financial problems and you may be one of them. The good news is, there are some things that can do to increase your financial security.
How’s your budget management? THAT is the question. You may be earning money but you have to be wise in spending the money that you earn. This way, you have to set your budget and by setting it, set down the priorities first before you move on to other things that you don’t really need at the moment. It is true that there will never be enough money for everything that we might need or want, which is why you have to be sensible when it comes to your spending. Having a plan or a budget is like a road map and it will help you arrive in your financial destination, safe and sound.
You should also keep in mind that you should only LIVE WITHIN YOUR MEANS, which means that having a plan or a budget will make it easier for you to know the things that are affordable for you and the things that are not. Also, you must realize your personal goals as well and spend your money more effectively. Having a budget can make you all of these. You have to know where your money is going and listing it down and allocating budget for emergencies, high-cost items and bills will be such a big help. By doing this, you are increasing your financial security.
Are you thinking of what to do this coming Mother’s Day? Don’t worry, here are some great ideas that can help you out and will definitely make your mother feel like a queen.
Take On Her Work
The idea here is to take on her work without being asked. Unless you’re a mother, you just don’t know how much a mom does on a daily basis. A lot of women juggle family lives and careers and at the same time being active in their community and their kids’ social lives and caring for the home.
This coming Mother’s Day, consider being really aware of the goings-on in your mom’s home and take the initiative to take care of things that ordinarily fall on her plate.
Find Out What Would Make Her Happy
Not all moms like the same things, which means that every mom wants something different that can make them happy. In this case, you really have to make an effort to find out what your mother would really like for this holiday without asking her directly. Hey, she’s your mother so at some point you know what will make her happy.
Begin a New Tradition
If you don’t have a tradition yet for celebrating Mother’s Day, start a new one. How about you take a family photo and vow to take that same photo every year? Or maybe you can go out for a picnic?
Give Her Your Time
Time really flies very quickly and most of the time, we don’t get around to doing what we’d like for/with those we care about. Let your mom know that you’d like to spend the holiday with her by doing something that she’d love to do and then make it happen. Make sure that you focus on that time with your mom.
Have you ever felt so exhausted, physically and emotionally? If you do, then it only means that you are burnt out. Getting burnt out is very easy these days due to the busy schedules that most of us are juggling. Also, it normally happens to people who are just starting out. They go through the hustle and bustle, they work hard because they want to get somewhere and since they are still starting out, they want to prove themselves and establish a reputation. However, what they don’t realize is that they are burning their selves in the process.
Keep in mind that every person has their own limit, but a lot of people are so oblivious with that fact. This is simply because people love to work, which is why they spend countless hours in the office and they think that they are normal. When you let this happen, burnout will eventually creep up on you and you’ll get burnt out and you will realize how terrible that feeling is and when you do, you will avoid it from happening again.
Engage in Morning Workouts
Consider working out during the morning. You don’t have to workout for a long time and it really doesn’t matter what kind of workout you immerse yourself in. Just make sure that you work out. You may think that this is irrelevant but if you do something active every morning, it will help clear your mind and provide you with a fresh dose of endorphins that will put you in the right physical state for the rest of the day.
Go for a Walk at Night
For the workaholics, evenings are difficult. This means that there are some people who gets home from the office and immediately turns on their computers, check their emails and eventually will find themselves working – again. These people don’t know how to close their days or to end their workdays, and because of that they get burnt out. If you are one of these people, you might want to go for walks every night before you head home after work. It doesn’t have to be long, just walk long enough to digest your day and clear your mind.
In life, there are a lot of things that you will learn. What are some of the things that you’ve learned that are useful or will be useful in the future?
Here are some of the things that most of us learn through life:
That we can’t make someone love us, all we can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to the people to love us and sometimes, no matter how much we care, some people just don’t provide the same level of care while others really don’t care at all.
That it takes years to build trust and only seconds to destroy it. How many of us have been in a situation where our trust get broken by someone we love or care about? Isn’t it one of the most hateful things in life?
It’s not what you have in your life but who you have in your life. This is such a refreshing lesson especially when you are too pressured to get things just because you think that it’s going to make you happy, make you gain new relationships and friends, etc. But amidst the pressure, if you try to look at the big picture and look at the people you have in your life, you will be completely happy and the material and superficial things won’t matter at all.
That you can charm your way out of anything else for about 15 minutes, but after that, you better know something. You shouldn’t compare your self to the best others can do and that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
