5 Awesome Thrift Store Finds!

Old but gold.

I’ve been always a fan of thrift shops in my younger years. Some people are not fond of buying pre-owned items, but it’s just like what they say “old but gold”. ¬†There are lots of goods you can find in your trip to a thrift shop. If you haven’t gone to any i suggest you to try it! Unlike what others (my mom) says that almost all of the things they sell are either dirty, not functioning well or owned from already dead people (which is creepy btw), this is NOT entirely true. I had some stuff from different thrift stores and they are all in good working condition. It depends on who is using it and what is the item in the first place. You’ll not gonna buy them if they’re wrecked anyway.

Here are five common good items that you can have! Continue reading “5 Awesome Thrift Store Finds!”

The Power of Music

Music heals our soul and our body. It is a form of art in which we can express our emotions. Music also serves as universal language. Not only that, but it also affects our brain in many ways. According to studies, listening to music can reduce anxiety, depression and pain. It also improves cognitive functions thus enhance learning and concentration, and keep off the effects of brain aging.

Music is a piece of art that goes in the ears and straight to the heart.

Ever wondered why listening to music gives us goosebumps and chills? Listening to powerful music is only one of many ways in releasing “happy hormones” or endorphins . This hormone gives you a “joyride” and feeling of being high. Its effect on our body is similar to the effects of morphine, thus reducing pain.¬†Music therapy is widely used in hospitals and medical facilities to reduce ¬†pain. Studies shown that listening to music helps in reducing both chronic and post operative pain. It is also used¬†to reduce the need for medication during childbirth.It gives the patient a sense of control thus, reducing the level of pain. Continue reading “The Power of Music”

Why Do People Seek Change

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new”

Socrates

¬† ¬†No matter how good or bad things are going, people constantly seek for change.¬†Sometimes, we need change but often people tend to change even though they don’t need it.

  1. Wanting something more.¬†We as human beings always want something better. Got the latest phone model? After a month or two, there’s gonna be a new model that you are going to dream about. You have to have that phone and of course you will buy it. The cycle goes on and on. It is like an addiction. It is natural in human behavior to crave to be the “best”. No matter how nice or how pure you are, there is at least one time that you thought your grass should be the greenest among all. ¬†And then you’ll come across someone having a lot greener grass than yours. We do always look at the better. And most of the times, wanting something more lets you end up with the worse.
  2. Fed up of literally everything. There will be one of those days where you will feel you’ve had beyond enough. Whether from work, personal life, financial or social, or any aspect of life. You will feel tired and all of your energy sucked up. You literally feel nothing and then the idea of the need to change comes in. You’ll do something beyond unthinkable that might save you from your own pit of misery.
  3. The need for sense of control over your life. Who does not want to be in control? To live your life with control is a deep human being need. When you are in control, you feel a lot much safer because you feel less harm can be inflicted to you. This sense of control satisfies people of their needs.

“A loss of the comfortable state of harmony that we seek has been defined as shift towards either chaos or rigidity”

                                                                                                                              Siegel (2008)

Whenever we feel everything is out of control, everything seems to be in chaos. On the other hand, if there is sense of control, we feel powerful.

4. People just get bored. Sometimes, People reinvent themselves to get out of boredom. People¬†seeks its way out of his mundane existence. Why? Because they are just bored. People wants everything in a snap of a hand. People are in for “instant” stuff. Most of the people are addicted on being spontaneous just to break the routine that they are having. Come to think of it, time is so slow when you are bored, right?

At the end of the day, it is up on the individual if that change might be beneficial or not. For sure, as cliche as it may seem, one thing that remains is change is inevitable.

Summum Bonum

What defines your happiness? Maybe a nice weather while cuddling in bed with your espresso and your favorite book or maybe it is when you get to spend time with the people you love the most. Some of us might define it just like any other dictionary says, a state of well being. Some might say happiness is just as same as dolce far niente¬†or the sweetness of doing nothing.
