Painting by Edvard Munch (1863 – 1944) Edvard Munch was a Norwegian painter and printmaker whose intensely evocative treatment of psychological themes built upon some of the main tenets of late 19th-century Symbolism and greatly influenced German Expressionism in the early 20th century.

Having Trouble With Your Kid? You Two Might Speak Different Love Languages

You go to hug your kid and they shrug you off and walk away. You know there must be love somewhere in there—so why do they act so cold? Having trouble figuring out your child? Feel like they’re playing soccer and you’re still at t-ball? You may actually be speaking two different languages – two different sets of love languages. According to Dr. Gary Chapman, there are 5 different languages of love [1] . They are: Words of affirmation Acts of service Receiving gifts Quality time Physical touch For some kids, nothing makes them happier than hugs and kisses. They enjoy touch . Give them frequent hugs, affectionate squeezes on the arm and pecks on the cheek. They will feel loved. Some kids, however, prefer you to say it out loud. Words of affirmations, like ‘your hair looks fantastic’ or ‘you are such a cool kid’ will brighten their day. They prefer audible affection. Sometimes kids want more proof of your love. They like it when you do things for them—  random acts of kindness

How I Saved 1000 Hours A Year By Just Quitting TV

Who doesn’t like to sit in front of the TV, curl up in a comfy blanket, and eat loads of junk food? (Okay, maybe not the junk food part.) It used to be my favorite pastime, it didn’t matter what I was watching — re-runs of Disney movies, random snippets of Friends, or the latest episode of Jimmy Fallon — I could sit there and binge watch all day on Netflix or HBO. The sound from the TV would often be my lullaby and rocked me to sleep on the couch. Let’s do some simple maths here. Simple But Shocking. Before I move on, let me throw you some “impressive” stats. Imagine if you sat in front of the TV 6 hours per day , after a year, you would have spent 2190 hours , which is 3 WHOLE MONTHS ! Just think about it. 25% of your whole year has gone to watching TV, at times you weren’t even paying attention to what you were watching. So How I Know I Have A Problem? As much as I don’t want to say I was addicted to TV, watching it for 4 hours straight every day was not a big deal for me. I us
