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.

What Self-Reflection Is

Is the process of thinking back on previous events and interpreting them through your experience. 

It’s about taking a step back and reflecting on your life, behavior and beliefs.

Journaling as self-improvement tool

The practical reason to keep a journal: To manage yourself. Most of us still see journaling as a hobby, something that we do for fun or to relax. Sure, those reasons might be true for some. But for mostm journaling is a tool for self-improvement. 📒

Hacks are tempoary

When you try to go for a shortcut, you end up wasting your time. The only way to become better is by working on your skills.

Hacks and tactics are always about stuff that worked in the past. But when everyone starts using the same hacks and tactics, they are no longer effective.

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.
  • Polarization: We are more polarized than anytime in history, trapped in our echo chambers, with our mind filled with confirmation bias. The distrust we have of those who don’t think like us fuels our polarized mindset.
  • Misinformation: Fake news is everywhere, and it is not just to spread misinformation, but to impair our critical thinking abilities.
Improve your life

To drastically improve your life, you do not need to purchase anything. You also don't need to work harder so you can buy that one thing that would significantly change your life.

Drastic change starts with you. The way out of a difficult place is found through working on yourself.

Happiness

Happiness is when a person feels satisfaction, contentment, and elation in their life. It is a fulfilling feeling to have despite it having varying definitions.

The term is generally used to explain one's present moment or how they feel about their life in a broad sense. Psychologists see it as a 'subjective' emotional state of a person's well-being. It focuses on our personal feelings in the existing moment.

Defining Millennials

Millennials were born between 1981 and 1996.

Similar to how baby boomers were named after an increase in birth rate after World War II, millennials were named because their upbringing took place at the turn of the millennium - a time known for digital advances, innovation, and the end of an era as we knew it.
