For many countries around the world, tomorrow (Sunday, May 12th) will be Mother’s Day. A chance for us to shower our various mothers in love and appreciation and if you are the mothers, get lots of sincere love and a day filled with fun. Now, as much as getting a gift can be important for some on Mother’s Day, I think the most important thing to think about is how to spend the day. You want to make sure that you get to celebrate it in a fun and exciting way, but also in a way that everyone will enjoy. Everyone is different though, which is why it can sometimes be hard to decide how to spend this lovely day. Sometimes, people spend Mother’s Day with the whole family, and there are big family events and celebrations, but other times, it is just the two of you. No matter how many of you are celebrating Mother’s Day together though, you all deserve to do something fun and that you enjoy. So, if you are struggling to find inspiration, here are a few suggestions for fun ways to spend Mother’s Day.
There is that word. The dreaded presentation, cue a dramatic sigh from the audience. I’m sure that everyone has had to do some form of presentation at least once in their life. It could have been a speech or a presentation with a slideshow, or even just prepared reading, but I am sure that none of us have been able to escape doing a presentation. If you have though, congratulations on managing to avoid them!

However, there are tips that can still help you give a great presentation, no matter the circumstances? Interested? Well keep reading to find out more …
Nobody likes cleaning (okay I know that is a broad statement, but it isn’t common for people to enjoy cleaning so if you do happen to like cleaning, please ignore that statement) but it is something that we all have to do. One place we all have to clean though is our bedrooms. No matter where you live, whether it is with your parents, in a dorm or an apartment or house on your own, the one room that all of those have in common is your bedroom. Now some people don’t think cleaning is essential, but nobody truly wants to live in a messy space because it is not hygienic, it can make you feel claustrophobic, and it is simply not good for your mental state to live somewhere messy. The truth is that cleaning is hard work and sometimes the thought of it is draining enough that we never get to it. The idea of doing it is intimidating, but not I am telling you that it doesn’t have to be. As hard as cleaning can be, you can actually get your room clean quickly and efficiently in seven simple steps. Curious? Read more to find out these seven simple steps.
Life is full of ups and downs. I’d hope that most of us get lots of ups – where things are going your way, and you are riding the waves of the world like a pro. However, this is my sunshine and rainbows attitude without the reality filter. When that filter comes on though, you see that life isn’t always so awesome. Sometimes, you hit a rough patch, and it can mess with your momentum. You lose motivation to keep trying, and the thought of perseverance isn’t an option. You can’t let that happen though. Even though perseverance can seem incredibly hard, it only makes you tougher and stronger for next time the unkind part of life tries to knock you down. Recently, I hit my own rough patch. I started to think that I should just give up. My mom, however, spoke to me and helped me remember that it doesn’t matter how many times you fall, all that matters is that you get back up again. So if you are also trying to persevere through something challenging, here are some tips to help you with it!
Our world has been made so much easier because of technology and travel is no exception to this. Years ago, we would have to do extensive research before even thinking about planning a trip, and we would have to spend hours and hours ensuring that we had compared all the right hotels, gotten the best bookings possible and made sure that we had everything we needed for the trip. That is no longer the case. Now, some apps do all the work for us. You don’t need to worry about travel agents or carrying large paper maps anymore because the digital world around us has got it covered. I happen to be quite a traditional person – choosing paper over tech any day of the week – but even I cannot deny how much easier travelling is when I have these apps to help me. So if anyone needs some good travel companion apps, then check out this list and see which you have and which you might need.
Travelling is such a fantastic experience. You get to see new and exciting places and meet new and exciting people. There is so much to learn from just one short trip that you might think: “Why haven’t I spent my entire life travelling?”. The truth though, is that sometimes travelling alone can be a lot more intimidating when it is a reality instead of just an idea in your head. You mustn’t let this scare you though. Doing things by yourself are meant to be a bit more challenging – you don’t have ready support behind you, and you might not have people there to guide you. But let me tell you that once you get past the intimidating thought of it, you will have so much fun that you won’t want to go home. I’ve done a lot of travelling in my life, but only a small portion of it has been on my own. However, even though I have only had limited experience, I have learnt (from these trips and others around me) how to travel alone successfully and in a way that I can enjoy myself even when being responsible. If you’re looking for tips for your solo trip, then look no further (by that I mean you can just keep scrolling, you don’t need to find another site).

The calendar has turned its page once again, and it is the start of a new month. Yay! A new month means new opportunities, new goals to set and new challenges to embrace. The problem though is that sometimes we are not able to achieve everything we want to and this all comes down to one simple reason – productivity. We all have the capability to handle our lives and the tasks within them, but often it can get away from us and all of a sudden we are behind on work and just feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. Fear not because the simple act of changing a few habits can turn you into a taskmaster of note. Keep reading to get my 9 tips for a more productive day …
