  • More than one-third of people who have taken a break from work experience a shake-up in their confidence levels when they return.
  • This feeling is more pronounced in women who are prone to long career breaks due to childcare responsibilities.
  • Due to the pandemic, which has displaced millions of global employees, there is even more insecurity and uncertainty for those who are looking to return to work.

Cosmetics Of Ancient Egypt

Cosmetics can be found in most societies on earth. In ancient Egypt, men and women used cosmetic materials such as kohl and henna. Dark green, black or blue kohl was used to decorate the eyes to ward off the evil eye. Scientists now believe the lead in this makeup killed bacteria, keeping wearers healthier.

Egyptians also used castor oil as a protective balm and used creams consisting of beeswax, olive oil, rosewater and more.

Emotional Contagion

This is what researchers call when we mimic the expressions and the emotions of the people around us.

The phrase "misery loves company" is a widely-used term and it seems that there is truth behind the phrase. Emotional contagion happens because of the mirror neuron system. Our neurons fire up when we behave in certain ways and is a probable explanation for how we experience empathy towards others.

  • Uncertainty: Be it diseases, the political landscape, the global concerns of war, environment and other ongoing crises, we have truckloads of uncertainty in our hands, which is stressing us out.

  • Misinformation: Fake news is everywhere, and it is not just to spread misinformation, but to impair our critical thinking abilities.
