One-Minute Trick to Pack Your Clothes Easily When Moving House

Moving is a really tedious task when you have lots of stuff, especially with clothes that you hang up in your closet. Can you imagine the time needed to fold up each of them up, one by one? Luckily, a Reddit user shared a brilliant lifehack that will save you the time. Don’t take my word for it, read the comments from people who tried it for themselves! “If you’re moving, you can use this method to easily transport all the clothes that you hang.” What users say about this hack “Incredibly timely. Moving this week.” “Did this recently, worked great. I used the tie for the bag to tie the hangers together. 10/10 would move my clothes again… not all the other crap though.” “Really wish I would’ve seen this 2 weeks ago” “What a great life hack. Thanks bud!” “I.. gotta use this when I head back to school” One user suggested not to use trash bags “Why waste trash bags? Just wrap coats and jackets around your shirts, and zip/button them to hold and cover the shirts. That’s what I’

You're Not Alone Spending Your Alone Time, and That's a Problem

Lots of research has pointed at the notion that people who socialize more tend to be much happier. But this doesn’t apply to everyone. One factor where socializing more doesn’t equal more happiness is intelligence. People who are highly intelligent become less happy the more they socialize because it’s thought smart people adapt more easily to the modern world. In other words, they understand that our primal need to keep close contact with a social group for food and shelter is no longer applicable in modern society. In fact, the more intelligent someone is, the more they tend to focus on long term goals instead of short-term gratification. Socialising, therefore, doesn’t hold as much value as working towards their goals. You’re Not Alone in Embracing Your Alone Time If you’re reading this thinking how much you love your alone time and proud that you carve out time for yourself on a regular basis, you’re one of many. One survey found 85% of adults believe alone time is important to

Empathy vs Sympathy: Why Some People Are More Likeable Than Others

Several years ago I went through a gut-wrenching break-up. It was traumatic, painful and devastating. The one bright spot amidst the tears and heartache was the understanding, devotion and genuine care displayed by my family and friends as I went through the healing process. It meant the world to me. Several months later one of my family members fell ill. Once again I turned to my support system. This time, however, their response was a bit different. It wasn’t that they didn’t care per se, they expressed their feelings a bit differently. I sensed that they couldn’t quite feel where I was coming from. They seem to be more understanding and emotionally supportive during my break up. Their lukewarm and slightly distant responses left me feeling angry, confused and hurt. This experience taught me the difference between empathy and sympathy. When one doesn’t have similar experience, very likely he has sympathy rather than empathy Once I was able to distance myself from the situations

Uncanny Sculpture by Nagato Iwasaki Nagato Iwasaki creates sculpture from driftwood he collects from around Japan. From Spoon & Tamago : Artist Nagato Iwasaki‘s lifelike driftwood sculptures are perfect examples of the uncanny valley — the feelings of revulsion and uneasiness one experiences from non-human objects that appear a bit too similar to real human beings. His work is beautiful and unsettling with echoes of the dryads found in myth.  Thanks to Lost At E Minor . This media isn’t just social, it’s art - follow us on Twitter , Instagram and Facebook .
