1. Develop a Relaxing Schedule. If you’ve reached the magic age of 66 and you’re able to retire, now is the time to relax and rejuvenate. Most of us have been taught a strong work ethic which has served us well. But the vitality of 8-5 with only a two-week vacation belongs to the past season. Nap when you feel like it. Stop setting your alarm. Sleep in on Monday mornings, which used to be the most stressful day of the week. Spend time watching the sun set or the sun rise if your circadian...

1. (Lack of) Communication Most of the problems we experience in our marriages can be solved (or prevented) if we just would do a better job of communicating.

What we miss out are the very basics of human nature , we are never properly taught ways to avoid toxic and harmful relationships, we just get warned without the means of getting out of them or turning them into something they’re...

But what I mean to say here is that the idea that you...

This is actually going to be an article about self-realization. I usually write about my personal experiences and this is going to hit home! I used to be one of the most self-deprecating and pessimistic people anyone would come across, but I came out of that sad and empty shell and I became very self aware and started loving everything about myself. You think you’re not good enough? You think you need to prove yourself to everyone else? You think you’ll never amount to anything? Then you seriously...
