15 Wonderful Airbnb Homes That Will Inspire You to Live a Little Differently

Vacations in a rented home always seem so restful, which isn’t strictly because it’s a vacation; a lot of it has to do with a sense of no responsibility. When you’re out of your own home, you aren’t surrounded by the constant reminders that you haven’t put the dishes away yet, or you need to dust the ceiling fans and do laundry. When you can focus more on resting and less on daily chores and responsibilities, you feel revitalized and more zen. Change your home to change your perspective. Just a small change can make a big difference at home. Finding inspiration through homes on AirBnb is a great place to start. Maybe you and a loved one just took an incredible trip and stayed in a tree house. Sure, it may not be possible to go home and turn your home into a tree, but you could still incorporate that airy feel. If you loved the greenery through the window, how about some house plants to bring the outdoors in? Find small things to add and feel free to make changes frequently. If it ma

If You Want to Read 10 Times Faster, Outread Is the App You Need

An average adult reads about 200 words per minute (WPM). A speed reader, though, reads about 1,500 WPM. The world speed reading champion is about 4,700 WPM, but we’re not going to worry as much about that level in this article. If you assume the average article is 500-1,000 words and the average book is 55,000-100,000 words, then an average adult reads an article in 2.5-5 minutes and reads a book in 275-500 minutes, or somewhere between 4.5 and 8 hours. A speed reader, though, could finish three articles in 1 minute and an entire book in 36-66 minutes (so slightly over an hour at most). Imagine if you increased your reading output at this level. The amount of information you would be able to consume over an average reader is staggering. Across a year, it looks like this: 360 books vs. 30 books 30,000 articles vs. 3,000 articles Reading is a cornerstone of information-gathering and coming across as intelligent in group dynamics.
