5 Great Things You Can Still Accomplish This Year

This post will show those of us who wish to achieve something tangible this year some fantastic goals we can reach this year with ease. 1) Learn a Skill It might surprise you to know that skills are not taught in the university, which is the reason why most of our graduates can’t start something unless someone employs them. It sucks to see a graduate earning just 30,000 Naira after spending 5 years in the university. Whereas, a simple Web Designer makes such an amount in a single day doing something he loves.  No matter how much you’ve spent in the university; without a skill, you will end up with peanuts as a monthly paycheck – unless you have the Nigerian connection. Before the year runs out, I suggest you get a skill, and I recommend one of the lucrative skills like Web Design and Development. It would set you on the path of greatness just before the year runs out. 2) Start an Online Business Whether Fiverr, Upwork, or any other freelancing site, you can set up on your own online bu…

6 Hidden Qualities Men Want In Their Spouse

What do men want in a long-term partner? I am sure you have some idea but I am about to clarify what men seek in a potential wife... 1. Dependability Men want a woman who is faithful, reliable and trustworthy. They are looking for a loyal mate who will have their back and not stray elsewhere. Men need a good reason to commit to women, especially given the life-cycle of most marriages these days so it's no wonder that being a dependable partner is highly revered by men. 2. Emotionally stable Men who are ready to settle down want a partner who has a high level of emotional intelligence. Physical attraction is only part of it and not as important to men as you may think. Men will only make a safe investment in a woman who is grounded and who will not make their life more difficult or potentially threaten their freedom. 3. Intelligence This next factor is really important and highly undervalued. Guys want to be able to connect on an intellectual level to a woman. They adore women who ha…

3 Helpful Ways To Ease Your Brain From Worrying Unnecessarily

WRITING IT DOWN
When you are training your brain to stop worrying, this one technique is said to be the most valuable. If your brain is keeping you up at night by thinking about something, put it down on paper or electronic format.
Doing so lets your brain breathe a mental sigh of relief by no longer having to spend energy trying to remember these details. If you’re worrying about what to serve for a gathering of friends, write down ‘What to serve?’ Writing it down also is a way for you to put your brain on notice and tell your brain ‘This is important enough to write down.’ Your brain has now been alerted to put resources toward solving this problem rather than being worried or having to remember the important thing to worry about. 2.

6 Bad Habits That Can Destroy Your Teeth

The teeth are an aspect of the body that most people ignore until it begins to hurt.  Therefore, some of the habits you should desist from are: 1. Chewing ice  I have met people who have no qualms with popping some ice cubes in their mouth. While this might seem like a fun habit, chewing on such hard substances can chip the teeth, not to mention what the coldness can do to the teeth- weaken them. 2. Tongue piercing While it may seem like a fashion statement, you pose the risk of infection. Also, metal consistently rubbing against your gum can weaken the gum. 3. Soft drinks Many of us can’t eat a meal without a bottle of soft drink but the sugar and acidic content wear the enamel. 4. Grinding your teeth So many people do this unconsciously, especially in their sleep. Over time, this habit can wear the teeth and even cause pain. It is best to wear a mouth guard at night. 5. Using your teeth to open stuff Your teeth may seem so hard and indestructible but they are not meant to open bottl…

12 Effective WaysTo Take A Better Picture With Your Smartphone}

Night Photography can suck sometimes because most of the mid range and low budget smartphones that are very common actually struggle to capture images in low light situations so most people just avoid taking pictures at night. I decided to outline the important steps on how to take amazing pictures at night. 1# Try To Keep The Camera Steady There's no way you'll get that perfect image if you're shaking your hands like a tremor patient. To avoid blurred images just try to keep the camera as steady as possible.
You can even go for a tripod which is the best option to take perfectly sharp shots. If you don’t have a tripod then you can try placing your phone on a wall, or any other solid surface and make use of the timer button on Camera interface. 2# Choose An Area With Good Lighting Lit up areas like street lights are good for drawing attention in dark environments. Make sure the subject is getting enough light to draw the attention. When you combine the lighting with your …

15 Things That Will Not Matter As You Grow Older

Here are some things we tend to expend lots of mental and physical energy on when we’re younger, that we eventually realize matter a lot less than we originally thought… 1. The inevitable frustrations of an average day. 
99% of what’s stressing you out today won’t matter a month from now. Sooner or later you will know this for certain. So just do your best to let go of the nonsense, stay positive, and move forward with your life. 2. The little failures you often feel self-conscious about.
When you set goals and take calculated risks in life, you eventually learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important in the long run. 3. How “perfect” everything could be, or should be. 
Understanding the difference between reasonable striving and perfectionism is critical to letting go of fantasies and picking up your life. Perfectionism not only causes you unnecessary stress and anxiety from the superficial need to always “get it r…
