Working in a negative environment can make you feel more miserable, and sharing a roof with a negative person can make you feel depressed.

We can try to withdraw from unhappy people, but when we really love others who are suffering, we want to help, not avoid them. We can help them by accepting their emotions while not giving up our own happiness.

A heatwave is a prolonged period of abnormally high surface temperatures compared to the average maximum temperature. Heatwaves may occur over several weeks and cause weather-related mortality.

Increased heatwaves are associated with climate change. Heatwaves are characterised by low humidity - which may worsen drought conditions, or high humidity, which may cause heat-related stress, which includes heat exhaustion, dehydration, and heatstroke.

Our body needs fuel to meet its energy demands. This energy is derived from carbohydrates, proteins, fats and phosphates.

  • We use less energy when we exercise lightly. This energy supply comes from fats.
  • When we exercise more intensely, fat can't be metabolised fast enough to meet the energy demands, so the body uses carbohydrates.

Invisible work refers to work that is unpaid, unnoticed and unacknowledged. These tasks include cooking dinner, assisting children with homework, or making a dentist appointment.

Invisible labour also appears in other sectors. For example, doing unpaid work for the "exposure" that could lead to industry connections, or a task outside of your work duties that could give you access to better "opportunities." While it may be true, it is still invisible labour.

What is invisible labor? It's real and it hurts. Here's what to know.


When you're navigating through a major blizzard or hurricane, or another kind of event, prepping for potential power outages can relieve you of much anxiety.

  • Keep your mobile phone changed, your gas tank filled, and carbon monoxide detectors with a battery backup on each level of your home.

  • Have a Plan B for family members who need electricity for medical reasons.

What to Do When the Power Goes Out


Recent decades are known for its fast fashion that adds to our overcrowded closets and landfills.

  • Americans discard 85 percent of the clothing they buy - about 15 million tons of textile waste a year.
  • The average lifetime of clothes is three years.
  • The clothing industry cause about 10 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

One eco-conscious solution is to buy thrifted items and upcycle them.
