Many years back in two neighbouring villages in the U.S. researchers were baffled that despite the comparatively unhealthy diet those living in that particular village, suffered less heart problems and other health problems than the village next door. After years of research and studying many habits of the inhabitants of the two villages the researchers came to the conclusion that in one village lived the descendants of the Dutch and the other village was inhabited mainly by the descendants of Italians. The Dutch were relatively much less interwoven as a community than the Italians who traditionally live closely knit with their neighbours, relatives and family. So despite the pasta and cheeses, Italians lived longer because they were surrounded by people.
Gone are the days when man and woman met on social occasions and wanted to be introduced. Gone are also the days when men would woo a woman and the process of romance was entirely different. According to many browsing profiles is a lot quicker and less disheartening than going the old established way.
Can you imagine how your life might be without your best friend? Who would listen to all of your terrible jokes or have your back any time you got into trouble? As humans, we rely heavily on friends for support, companionship and even when we want to kick back and have some fun. In fact, whether in social or professional spheres, it is generally accepted that forming strong bonds and partnerships with one another can often bring about positive results. But did you know that throughout the animal kingdom such partnerships are also formed, and not just within a single species?
Claims that Auras are a part of paranormal activity were debunked by Semyon Kirlian and his wife Valentina Kirlian. Together they discovered and went on to develop, what is known as Kirlian photography. The Kirlians explained that images that are generated by Kirlian photography depict an energy field that surrounds all living things. They further went on to explain that the energy that circles all of us can actually be photographed and show a life force or the energy field that reflects the physical and emotional states of individuals.
Since creation human beings have been given a whole set of emotions and feelings. Disregarding whether the feeling is bad or good has its own reason and design. In an article published by Barbara L. Fredrickson titled “The Role of Positive Emotions in Positive Psychology. The Broaden-and-Build Theory of Positive Emotions”, there is a report on detailed research into the roles and effects of positive emotions. However, setting aside the positive feelings which make us more spiritually alive, it is important note that such negative feelings as fear, panic, pain, etc. have their functions as well. One of the most basic imperatives they serve is protection and the instinct for self-preservation. However, it is no less evident that if an individual becomes overly obsessed by one of those negative emotions, the flow of life, as well as all vital activities, may be in jeopardy.
One of my favourite smells, since childhood, has been the smell of a new book. Since I was lucky enough to be encouraged into reading at an early age, a visit to the book shop or even to the library was an event.
Albert Einstein among many other statements he made, famously said “the more knowledge the less ego, the less knowledge the more ego”.
It is always easier to understand a conflict when two parties are involved, isn’t it? Two different people can disagree, fighting over the same objective, sharing opposite values, or wishing to achieve polar opposite goals. But how can we explain a situation in which the disagreement is inside someone’s head? That’s exactly what experts call an intrapersonal conflict. We have already analysed its motivation and role types. This time we’ll find out what this ‘condition’ is and how simply it can influence our behaviour.
The word itself is amusing and over the last few years has found its way into the Oxford dictionary. A Selfie is defined as “ A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media.”
