Why a Lot of Relationship Experience Doesn't Equate to a Great Marriage

The old school romantic notion of marrying before sex is almost an antique relic. Fully 95% of Americans have had premarital sex. Most men will have had at least 6 relationships, and women 5 before tying the knot. What does all of this experience mean for marriage quality? At the very least, divorces have been going down since the 1980’s. Even though people continue to use the false “50% of marriages end in divorce” statistic, marriages have been improving for decades. Whenever the subject of marriage gets brought up, you can be sure that someone will argue against the institution by trotting out the most famous of famous statistics: half of marriages end in divorce. This seems like a slam dunk factoid as to why folks should avoid the altar. There’s just one problem: it isn’t true and hasn’t been for awhile now. – Bret & Kate, The art of Manliness This may not correlate to people getting more relationship experience, but it doesn’t seem to be a negative. Let’s jump into how a

The Power of Deep Thinking: Essence of Creativity

True or False: “This sentence is false.” What was your answer to the question above? Did you quickly fire off an answer or did you have to think about it and then think about it some more? Imagine for a moment that you could put on a set of inverted goggles and see the world through an entirely different lens. On one hand, you would literally see differently, but you might not view the world differently. If we look deep enough and allow ourselves to observe from a new lens, we will. Thomas S. Kuhn remarked in The Structure of Scientific Revolutions , [1] “What a man sees depends upon what he looks at and also upon what his previous visual conceptual experience has taught him to see.” The power of deep thinking is the essence of creativity. By learning how to think differently and deep, you will find that it is not only your creative thinking, but your critical thinking skills that vastly improve. This leads to higher levels of thinking and powerful problem-solving skills that yo

How to Spot a Liar within Seconds

Lying is pretty high up on the list of negative traits. No one likes to find out they’ve been deceived, yet it’s something nearly all of us do on a regular basis. According to James Patterson, author of The Day America Told the Truth , among two thousand Americans,  91 percent lied regularly both at home and at work .” Surprised? Possibly not. Most people aren’t out to deceive us for selfish gain. With loved ones, you’re more likely to be lied to in order to save your feelings from being hurt and we’re usually none the wiser. But what if you really want to know when you’re being lied to? Can you really tell if you read the signs well enough? The Biggest Giveaway of a Liar So how can you spot someone who’s lying? Words are hard to decipher when it comes to lying. What someone says can be rehearsed and controlled especially if a person is particularly good at it. When it comes to spotting clues, actions really do speak louder than words because it’s all in a person’s gestures. Unl

10 Best Lumbar Support Cushions That All Desk Workers Need

There’s another epidemic on the rise and it’s a real pain in the…back. You’re probably even experiencing it right now. 8 out of every 10 Americans will experience back pain at some point in their life, if not chronically. Not surprisingly, around 54% of those with back pain are desk workers. But the actual cause of the back pain can be difficult to pinpoint. Only 10% of those who seek medical treatment typically find the source of their pain. That means that 9 out of 10 patients will never know what is causing their issue. That is because there are many external factors that could be contributing to the pain such as physical activity, but an association is not the same as finding a cause. Americans spend around $50 billion a year treating back pain. If we take the measures to prevent damage to our backs, then we can avoid issues down the line. Especially for those of us who spend long hours sitting behind a desk (raises hand), we need good lumbar support to sit properly and give ou
