Have you ever noticed how you might prefer a hug from your friend, rather than well-meant advise? Or a compliment from your spouse, rather than a gift? This makes sense when you follow Gary Chapman’s theory on how we like to give and receive affection. An interesting read, especially when you find out what your partner’s love language is! I’ll tell your all about the 5 love languages, and how they can work for you: This way you can work this piece of knowledge to your advantage!
If you’re a Pinterest regular you must be familiar with the term “dry brushing”. Simply put, it’s a technique to brush one’s skin with a firm-bristled brush – no soap, water or oil involved. The list of benefits seem to be unending: Supermodels swear by it, and health-guru’s claim it even has a positive effect on the inner workings of your physique. I decided to put it to the test. Does dry brushing work? I’ll tell you all about my experience!
When you become a parent you are confronted with several choices which color the life of your child. It’s your duty to weigh these options responsibly and to choose what you feel works best for your family. As women have been perceived as a child’s primary care-giver for decades, you would think staying home for the kids would be most socially accepted – if not expected. Four months into motherhood I’m finding out the opposite is true. I’ll even go as far as to say I feel that in our Western culture there’s a stigma on being a stay-at-home mom. In this article I would like to share my personal findings, and make a call to action to remind ourselves to simply allow moms to be moms (and of course, allow dads to be dads).

The Mister fares best when he’s busy. He rather spends his time doing something constructive or useful, rather than sit back and daydream a bit. That’s why I was surprised to get a leisurely recommendation from him that didn’t involve a wikipedia article. A mobile game no less! But fear not; it isn’t some flashy concoction which appeals to your addictive traits or stimulates you to pay money to progress. In fact, I can genuinely state this mindful mobile game is a work of art.
I feel lucky to count myself among the few people who is relatively young, with a long and steady relationship. And I feel honored when people ask me for our secret. The cliché is true: I feel communication and hard work are the key to a good relationship. But there’s one piece of advice a wise old man once gave me, which I always try to pass on when someone asks for it. Because after almost two decades of loving union, it turned out to be the best relationship advice I have ever received. And I would like to take this opportunity to share it with you as well!
