Let's Do This! 6 Ways to be More Grateful in Our Everyday Life

If you were to score yourself over 10, how thankful will you say you are on a daily basis? An 8? A 4? Gratitude is one of those virtues we know we should practise often. We know that at every point in time we should be at the very least 99.9 % thankful. But we fall short. Oh sometimes we fall really short! Disappointments happen, and life gets tough. From slim bank accounts to stressful jobs, annoying spouses and everything else in between. 

Dear Adult, It's OK to Unleash Your Inner Child!

I'd never been on a trampoline until a couple of weeks ago.The closest I came to as a child, was probably bouncing castles - but those never really interested me, for reasons unknown.

It’s like saying, I hate getting up in the morning so I do it over and over and over again." 

Should your Husband go on a Men-only vacation?

My husband's friends are absolute clowns and I often have such a good time with them to be honest. On holiday recently, they jokingly commented that I hadn't written any post about them. They sort of bullied me to be honest, and so this one's for them! Whenever they are together, they continuously talk about how the best holidays they've had is the one without me in it! Obviously the husband knows better than to agree with them.

Nothing beats packing your own lunch to work. The advantages are many. You save money, and possibly eat healthier.
