10 Important Truths Every Twenty Something Should Realize

10 Important Truths Every Twenty Something Should Realize

Your twenties are a time rich with experimentation. The transition from dependence to independence can feel like a roller coaster ride. Surely you’ll encounter some bumps over these ten years, so here are six helpful truths to keep in mind during your twenties. We have some obnoxious notions when we are going through that age but it becomes more and more irrelevant when we start becoming mature and realize that there are certain universal facts that needs to be grabbed.

Out of the myriad ‘Grand Pa’ suggestions, here are ten primary and important truths that every 20 something should realize, in order to pour the precious idealization of life.

1. You Can’t Please Everyone

Don’t get stuck in a ritual of validating other peoples’ egos. You cannot possibly please everyone around you. In fact, if you attempt to please each and every person you know, eventually you’ll lose sight of your own needs.

2. Don’t Be Too Materialistic

Do not forget that life is much more than possessions. At times, make an effort to reconnect with your friends, spend time with family, stay home and take care of your pets. Basically, spend most of your effort on making memories.

3. Focus On Building Wealth of Experience

You need money to survive, obviously. But also focus more on acquiring knowledge and become intellectually rich. Learn as much as you can. Read books, articles, magazines, meet people and establish your network.

4. Keep In Touch With Old Friends

In your twenties you will meet many temporary people who will come in and out of your life. Don’t forget about the real friends and family who stick by you. Make it a point to stay in touch with them. If they feel like you’ve taken their friendships for granted, eventually they might not bother keeping up the relationship.

5. Failures Are Okay

The ball won’t always be in your court. It is okay if your grades aren’t always perfect. What’s important is that you keep trying.

6. Your Parents Care

At times it may feel that your parents are pulling you back, or keeping you from tasting freedom. Remember, they care for you deeply, and perhaps 20 years from now you will show the same care to your own kids.

7. Solitude is Indeed Essential

It’s really not that bad when you go out alone for a walk, watch a movie alone or even go for a trip without any company. I should emphasize it’s more matured when you have such experiences as it shows you the ‘Real You’

8. Technology isn’t everything

Well, we are living in an era of mobiles, tablets and laptops where every single thing is digital and our brain follows the instructions of the machines directly or indirectly but we should always remember that it was invented just as the catalyst and not for the whole human evolution process.

9. Sleep Deprivation is Bad

While we grow up, we tend to put our efforts on our career and forget to do the very natural things. Sleep Deprivation is one of the bad things millenials fetch from the bad world’s new trendy work culture but you should always maintain the work-life balance; sleep is an important asset of life, you must know.

10. Dreaming Big can be Dangerous (Figuratively)

Yes, we wanted to be ‘Batman’ when we were 10 but then, we know it’s not real and we should be something more real. Dreaming to own ‘Microsoft’ ain’t going to make you successful but pity.

Your twenties are a thrilling time to let loose while also developing your personality and career. Try to keep a healthy perspective, and you’ll be left with amazing memories for the rest of your life. Good luck with your journey.

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

2. Stress Relief

Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

3. Improved Sleep

Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

4. Appetite Control

Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

7. Mosquito Repellant

Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

8. Pain Relief

While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

9. The New Anti-Viral

Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

10. Improved Cognitive Function

Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

11. Money Saving

With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
