While the 9-5 is still the norm for many of us, there's a new wave of employees changing the job market: digital nomads. Armed with nothing more than a laptop and a strong work ethic, they're giving a new meaning to flexible working hours, travelling the world while making beaches, cafes, and sofas their offices.
You’re sitting at work when – *ping* – an email drops into your inbox. It’s Sandra from HR asking for a ‘quick chat’. Sounds ominous. You’re sure she’s never liked you and now she’s found some reason to make you really suffer.
Buzz. You pick up your phone to a new message. “Hey babe, can we talk when you’re free?” Your chest gets tight. Your body goes cold. You realize you should have seen this coming. You've been dating this great woman for a month or two, and now she wants to DTR.
You’ve marked the date in your calendar and sent off your RSVP, but you probably haven't given much thought to faux pas. If you’re not part of the wedding party, you could be forgiven for thinking that all you have to do is turn up and have a ball. To a certain extent, that’s right, but attending a loved one's wedding is a real honor, and you don't want that person to regret sending you an invitation.
Imagine a world where couples no longer got down and did the dirty. A world where we each stayed inside our own cubicles, VR headsets firmly on, headphones blaring while being quietly pleasured by an electronic, AI-powered sex toy.
As betrayal of the highest degree, infidelity is hard to overcome in even the strongest of relationships. It’s not merely about the sex; not by a long shot. It’s everything that surrounds it – the lying and sneaking around. It’s the fact that you’ve broken your partner’s trust, often irreversibly.
Your cheeks are red as you walk into the room. Everyone is staring at you. At least, you think they are. Your heart beats fast. You feel dizzy and sick. If this scenario sounds familiar to you, you may be suffering from social anxiety. What’s more, you’re not alone.
Real talk: how much thought do you give to your personal finances? The mention of the topic may cause you to break out in a hot sweat. Cool it. Despite what you may think, managing your money doesn’t have to be the terrifying unknown, despite all the money myths blurring reality.
There’s a magic key to getting what you want and what you need in life. No, this isn’t clickbait. I’m talking about the foundation of social interactions—communication.
Monogamy—it’s not for everyone. What was once the societal norm is now merely one of the many relationship choices out there. Today's dating scene offers a buffet-style array of non-monogamous relationship styles. But from open relationships to polyamory, it can be hard to get your head around the labels, and how they actually play out in practice.
So, what does it mean to be in a non-monogamous relationship?
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a person’s online persona has little to do with their real-life personality. Sure, we do and say things on social media that we would never dream of doing or saying IRL. However, if your friend’s online persona drives you up the wall, it could impact the way you feel about them.
The flexitarian diet – fleeting fad or here to stay? Good question. With the sudden rise in veganism and vegetarianism, you could be forgiven for thinking that flexitarianism is merely another incarnation of the trend. However, the healthy eating regime is more than a decade old and is fast gaining in popularity.
More than 60 percent of couples share on their socials within a few hours of the event, according to a survey from Wedding Wire. But, how can you tell your online community just how thrilled you are without coming off as annoying, cheesy, or arrogant?
There’s no magic pill you can take (no matter how many clickbait ads you see!) that will make you lose weight overnight. Despite this, there’s one dieting trend that could have some weight to it – intermittent fasting.
