To make every moment worthwhile when you live and to have a hope to live in the future, Being positive is crucial. Being positive and living a positive life has to come within you. It is not something you can misapprehend. But, a lot of people in this word are having trouble living a positive life which is affecting many aspects of life.  Negativity will result in anxiety and dissatisfaction. One can never be happy with whatever they may have achieved. They will feel a sense of loneliness no matter how many people are around them. Positivity leads to a higher level of satisfaction and they will sense a strong sense of happiness with every bit of thing they achieve.

Learn to say NO to things that you think are not right.But, in the name of doing whatever you like, don't hurt others. Know that karma works both ways. Whatever you do comes back at …

Azolla Event and Climate Change

Image
So this is going to be more of an advocacy post for climate change. Let me start by saying that the earth existed before us and it will continue to exist long after us. Human activities create the climate change that we experience now. While some people still deny this statement, every science educated individual knows this to be a fact. This post will talk about the Azolla event 49 million years ago and as gives us insight into our current global situation. 
The Azolla event is an event that occurred 49 million years ago in the middle Eocene epoch. Before this event, the world was so hot that there could be palm trees and alligators on the north pole. Now the earth was hot, mainly because of the carbon dioxide produced from volcanic activity. It was so much CO2 that it made the earth a sauna. Now the reality is humans can’t live in these conditions, but reptiles can, and in fact, they were quite prevalent during this time. 
Well, what does this mean? It means that the earth has experie…

5 Ideas To Help You Live Longer

Image
Most of us have the dream to live a complete and full life but sadly many of us pass before our time is up. Some of this can be attributed to “acts of God” like a car accident or natural disaster. What I want to talk about today is some ideas that when used will help you extend your life expectancy. 
Diet: Let me start by saying that there is no magic diet to make you live longer. Common culture will say go keto, paleo, or high carb. Even so in reality, there is no definitive proof that those diets extend your longevity. When examining centenarians, it is found that the best diet is a balanced one. A balanced diet means including carbs, protein, sugars, vitamins, fats, minerals, all at appropriate levels. This means make sure you're not eating too much protein or too little carbs. It's all about balance. The perfect diet for any individual is one that is made when the individual understands their body and how it works. Some people need more sugar in their system because of low …

5 Simple Ideas To Help Save Bees

Image
Save the bees was a huge movement both last year and a couple of years ago. Where has all the energy gone? Bees still need our help. So here are 5 things you can do to save bees.
Plant organic bee-friendly plants and flowers: GMOs plants are unpredictable; you never know if the side effect of genetic modification can cause harm to bees. Also, you don’t want to make a bee’s job harder for them by planting plants that are a natural deterrent to bees. For example wormwood, mint, and cucumber. So support your local bees by planting appropriately. (Here's a list of bee-friendly plants) 
Don’t use toxic persistent chemicals in your home and gardens: If they are bad for bees they're probably bad for you as well. There are better alternatives when choosing to use toxic chemicals. Some plants do it naturally, and I'm pretty sure you can get non-chemical solutions to whatever you're facing. 
Support local sustainable agriculture: Local sustainable agriculture can house up to 50% mo…

10 Ideas To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Image
We are all guilty of not doing our part in the fight against climate change. It is funny how the pandemic is giving us the ability to walk back a very small amount of harm we caused the environment. The air is getting cleaner in some places and wildlife are inhabiting parts of the world that they once stood clear of. I think this is a chance for us to reflect on the impact that we humans have on the environment. So let's take this one step further here are 10 ideas to help you save the earth!
Use Fluorescent Bulbs: Fluorescent bulbs have been around for a while yet whenever I walk around I always see Incandescent ones. Fluorescents not only take a fraction of the energy that incandescent bulbs do but they last longer. They are also brighter by comparison. I do go to admit I have an incandescent light bulb in my room but I’ll change mine if you pledge to find the ones in your home and change them as well. By doing so not only will you reduce your energy bill but also your carbon foo…

5 Ideas To Make a Meaningful Impact In Your Community

Image
A lot of us have a community belong to, but many walk by them everyday moving onwards with life. To make a difference in the world one needs to only start with the people around them, their community. So I decided to come up with the following ideas to help you better serve the people around you. 
Volunteering: Now, to keep this concise, volunteering, in this case, means helping any local place with your time. For example, serving food at a soup kitchen, or picking up trash. Volunteering is such an amazing thing to do for your community because it brings so much personal satisfaction to both the volunteer and the community. It’s something that illuminates the faces of strangers and helps form everlasting bonds with others. Volunteering is giving time to help someone with something. Some of the benefits of volunteering include improving your resume, personal satisfaction, building relationships, and networks. The thing about volunteering is that it is really easy to get started. Just fi…

Ideas To Increase Voter Turnout

Image
So we all know that voting is essential in any democracy to enact meaningful change in our system. Yet how many of us go out to vote. With the digital age, voting has become easier yet voter turnouts remain the same. I believe the following solutions can mitigate the problem. 
The first idea is quite radical, make election days a mandatory work holiday. That way everyone can stop blaming work for keeping them from voting. We’ve created work holidays for days that are far less important. Voting allows us to create a government that will last for years to come. For something that important, losing a day of work is no big deal. This naturally comes with problems as people may decide just to stay home and spend time with their family. This can be countered by allowing workplaces to gather at a certain time on this day then go and vote together. In return for a free day off employees spending an hour, voting is no big deal. 
Now there is a less extreme version of this where instead of giving…
