social media

Social Media (SM) has become the first choice for users to express their feelings with freedom. For many people all over the world, tweeting a tweet, hashtagging an Instagram caption, posting Facebook status now onwards is common practice. In the past, people communicate via emails, forums, and newsgroups. Recently, SM has gain lot of popularity for content sharing and sharing their opinions freely. SM such as Twitter, people get updated with the latest news, live events, participate in different activities. Also, keep up to date with friends and families. Twitter has 270 million active users, and 500 million tweets are sent per day.

There are many research topics on social network analysis. Opinion mining and sentimental analysis techniques are used to extract useful information from the user’s tweets text. Tweets may contain text from three different categories such as Positive Tweet, Negative Tweet and Neutral.

Importance of words

“Your words become your world – Nadeem Kazmi.”

  1. Words, of course, are essential for social media. Researchers using your linguistic features start predicting the personality of the people.
  2. Similarly, the words tag cloud easily help social media developers to show contents similar to your feelings and emotions to increase the throughput of company’s advertisements.
  3. Certain words hold more power over our decisions making process than others.

How words can be used to find five personality factors in any user

  1. Extraversion. It is a factor which is used to find your interaction with other people on SM. More you interact, more you make friends and posts.

  5. Openness. Is when someone is curious and openminded to new experiences and knowledge.

Through sentimental analysis, we can find out the overall subjectivity of a tweet

Either it is positive, negative and neutral words are used in the tweets. Researchers believe, that no matter what the platform or language, users common practices to use more positive words than negative words. There are many reasons behind the statement. One is that a lot more good things happen to us than bad things. So naturally, we are addicted to positive thinking’s finally end up saying more positive words. The most challenging task is to classify the tweet into their categories so that a normal user can easily guess the subject of the tweet. Either it is posted to review a movie, book, electronics or any other product & company. Or it is related to some specific personalities such as Donald Trump, Imran Khan so on and so forth. Similarly, tweets may be related to some live events currently being held such as FIFA World Cup.

Opinions or tweets are in the form of a short sentence

Words used in the tweet may classify the tweet subjectivity. These positive words are also known as linguistic features from a research point of view.

Lemons Into Lemonade: How To Turn Negative Events Into Positive Expression

Lemons Into Lemonade: How to Turn Negative Events into Positive Expression

The fact is, many of us rely on creating to express our emotions. All of us on are especially familiar with this process. Creating to express our emotions in any form has potential to be a healthy and life-giving experience.

We can use art and creative writing as a means to turn our negative feelings into a reckoning for positivity. Here are some thoughts about negative experiences and how we can write them into a corner when they try to bully us.

The Dangers of Holding in Our Pain

Our culture glorifies the idea of holding in your emotions. Men are often called weak for being expressive, and women are called crazy for expressing their emotions in any way. Neither of these is fair, as emotions are simply a part of the human experience, and there’s nothing weak about admitting to what you feel.

Here’s the fact: suicide rates are on the rise. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the suicide rate in the United States increased 24 percent from 1999 to 2014. The amount of adolescents — and we are talking early adolescents — that contemplate ending their lives or do end their lives as a result of cyberbullying has increased as well. In a recent UK study, 26 percent of respondents had suicidal thoughts, as a result of cyberbullying.

We have to normalize emotions and offer people practical ways to handle their trials in life. Even social work professionals admit we need to start thinking out of the box. I propose one of the best outlets for pain is through creative writing.

Write It Off

There is something so satisfying about forming the perfect sentence to describe what you’re going through. As long as you’re doing it for you and not to impress others, I think being able to work hard on this transfer from mind to paper is therapeutic. By writing about your negative experiences, you can process them, and learn from them. If you’re comfortable with it — share and relate it to others.

Here are some suggestions to turn your negative experiences into lemonade, through the power of writing.

Poetry Exercises

Poetry, lyric writing, and the like are the best places to employ your artistic license, due to the common “show don’t tell” mentality that’s so popularized in these communities. I personally find it useful to use poetry prompts in order to challenge yourself. The point of doing these exercises is to force you to write down your thoughts in a different way than just “I feel sad” or “I am angry.” You also are usually writing less — but it’s harder to get a good flow going. It’s a new form of expression for a lot of freelance writers and similar creatives and can influence your other writings as well.

Descriptive Nonfiction

This is something I struggled with originally due to my past writing song lyrics with metaphors. I had to drop all of that — which I now consider being mostly fluff — and switch to describing the actual scenes around me. Descriptive nonfiction lives in “show don’t tell,” more strictly than poetry does.

Retell your story. Use color, shape, and other physical descriptions. How red was your face from embarrassment or hurt? What were other people doing? How they moved, their facial expressions, and how did their face change and move as well? What words were they using? Of course, “show don’t tell” can also make for a traumatic retelling of a hard time, so gauge yourself and see if you can handle it first.

Letters to Yourself

Years ago, during one of my first breakups, I found myself writing letters late before bed. These letters were addressed to me, oddly enough. I never called it journaling or felt like I was writing a diary. I was very clearly writing a letter. Even though I was the recipient of these letters.

Physically writing my thoughts down on paper felt like I was transferring my emotions — like they were physically leaving my body. This was one of my initial experiences with the therapeutic effects of writing, and since then I’ve used writing to help myself through other breakups, loss of friends and family, and stressful life events.

Freewriting

It has been said that “bad writing is good for you,” and this may certainly be the case in your situation. Freewriting offers the comfort of no restrictions – just straight up word vomit until you need to eat again.

Some find this to be a positive and freeing experience. It offers them a way to put some elbow grease into releasing their emotions, but they don’t have to worry about anything else. This isn’t typically the writing you show people, but certainly, you can if you would like. It’s your lemonade.

Get a Little Abstract

Use weird prompts and exercises — and by “weird” I mean unusual to you — to stretch your writing and give you new ways to express yourself. The thing with writing prompts is that they work like writing games. You have to use them to finish a piece based on rules and restrictions you don’t typically adhere to. Some of the most satisfying pieces of writing I’ve done have been based on odd prompts, and it always feels like a new way to express my thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.

How To Encourage Others

As I mentioned earlier, we need to normalize negative emotions. Make them something to talk about, and make it usual to talk about them. Let’s innovate a bit and give struggling people healthy and positive ways to handle their pain.

We must live by example first, because telling people to talk about their issues doesn’t shut out the voices — external or internal — that make them feel uncomfortable doing so. Being encouraging and transparent, ourselves, can do that.

Now, how much more as a writer can we share our experiences tangibly, especially with other writers? We all struggle with life, so writing them down for others may actually give them something to lean on, and maybe vice versa. Make your own lemonade from life’s hardships.

Ultimately, transparency begets transparency

With that in mind, let’s strive for honesty and humility with each other, so we can destigmatize depression, formulate it into something positive, be it through writing or whatever other form of creation you choose, and gain something from it rather than lose everything to it.

Practical Guide: How To Make A Scientific Essay

scientific essay

A scientific essay is a relatively brief writing, dedicated to a specific topic that implies its deepening, discernment, and synthesis. The author expresses his idea or point of view from an objective information collected and presented previously. In a simpler way, it is a writing in which the author exposes his ideas in an organized way or a composition where the author exposes his personal interpretation on a particular topic.

First, it has thematic freedom

A scientific essay can treat any aspect. In our case, any scientific issue.
The content, therefore, can be very varied but always emphasizing its originality. That is to say, it can be a subject already treated by other authors, but with its own content, unpublished. Writing a college essay can be time wasting but don’t worry since you’re in the digital era. Do not forget about the online services that offer you college essays to buy from them to save your time and energy.

Second, you must follow a predetermined structure

Title: is the header of the text. It has to be striking, and at the same time orientation, to indicate which aspects/topic is going to be treated in your scientific essay.

Approach/thesis: can have various forms, depending on the purpose of the trial. – If we seek to test a new hypothesis or refute an existing one.
– If we simply want to comment or explain an existing problem.
– Or if we want to propose a new conjecture.

It is of obligatory use since otherwise, the superstructure of the trial would be damaged.

Development of the tested idea: its purpose is to give the pertinent explanations, for the fulfillment of the thesis.
– For this, extensive argumentative paragraphs are used (each one has an idea within the essay).
– Transition paragraphs (between argumentative paragraphs). This serves as a  connection or recapitulation of ideas, linguistic connectors, and concrete examples / bibliographical references.

Conclusion: with it, we define the deductive test (if we use it to highlight the thesis, which has already been discussed and argued before). Also has the inductive test (if we use it for, following the thesis or initial approach, and later argumentation to affirm a new thesis).

In the third place, it is essential to provide, in the end, all the bibliographic information that has been used

So…what are the steps to follow?

Choose a topic that you understand, or for whatever reason, you want to develop and make a preliminary outline of the main ideas.
Value the goal you want to achieve and the point of view you want to adopt.

Use an adequate and objective bibliography, so that with information for and against the chosen topic, you can make an argument as rigorous as possible.

Start writing!

Adapt to the classic format of the tests, in terms of structure and parts. It should use a correct vocabulary, precise, but at the same time close to the reader. It does not have to be a professional of the subject.
Use linguistic connectors of all kinds: spatial-temporal, causal, ordering, etc.

Avoid unnecessary digressions and ambiguities in argumentation. Think that to explain a reality, it is not necessary to go far from it. Use relevant examples, and explain what you want to say. Do not stay short, but do not go too far. Everything in its proper measure!

Check the external correction several times: grammar, spelling, and presentation.
Check also the internal correction of the text: impact/novelty of ideas, the coherence of the same, logical sequence, and conductive thread of the exhibition.

Last but not least

Be true to your personal style to provide the essay with that main character of originality, and innovation.

Moreover, technology has played a major role in education by providing online help. Nowaday’s experts write essays and teach English online to enhance their expertise.

Hopefully, the above explanations can be satisfying and helpful to you.

How Spirituality & Mindfulness Increase Positivity

spirituality

Focusing on one’s personal spirituality, practicing mindfulness and honoring self-care are known for naturally increasing positivity in your life. These three different acts can seem a bit ambiguous to those who are unfamiliar with the terms. This may be due to the fact that they can have many different meanings to different people, which is why they are personal to your own journey.

Spiritual traditions such as prayer, meditation, yoga, and journaling are meant to nourish the soul and allow time for self-reflection. Mindfulness is becoming more consciously aware of your thoughts and emotions in the present moment. Self-care is intentionally restoring your mind, body, and soul with activities such as disconnecting from the outside world, making yourself a cup of tea or treating yourself with a massage. Whatever act of self-service that helps you to reconnect with yourself with your own being and revive your inner light is good.

Physical Benefits

Our present-day culture tends to feed into the need to be fast-moving and overly productive. Refocusing your attention to your inner-self has the ability to positively transform your physical body, especially after a day of hard work. Using nothing more than your breath and focus, meditation has shown to greatly reduce stress and stress-related conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, and fibromyalgia. If your work allows for you to escape to focus on your personal wellness, be sure to do so — even for as little as five minutes a day. Also, be sure to take advantage of communicating grievances to your manager. You’ll be surprised at how much more motivated and productive you’ll feel, after being honest.

Much like comparing a smoker to a non-smoker, personal choices and habits have an impact on our physical health and our ability to heal our own bodies. Healthcare-related research studies have found that having a connection with spirituality or religion helps ill patients better cope with stress and improves their quality of life. Giancarlo Lucchetti led a study that found that individuals with a strong spiritual connection have an 18 percent reduction in early mortality. This serves as evidence that establishing a spiritual life now may potentially prolong your life.

Positive Self-Image

The mind and body are inextricably connected. Treating the mind and body as a holistic system will aid in creating an overall positive self-image. When your physical body feels healthy and well, so does your mental health and vice versa. Practicing acts of self-care enable you to reinforce positive self-image by accepting that you deserve the best out of life. Self-care does not have to always look the same each time. Integrating routine exercise into your life’s schedule or simply looking at yourself in the mirror and saying the words “I love you” is as intensely impactful as treating yourself to something nice or going on vacation. By treating yourself with love and kindness you are simultaneously manifesting positivity and welcoming it into your life.

Start Young

A large percentage of a young person’s time is spent in school receiving their education. Integrating mindfulness practices into a child’s school day has proven to have many positive impacts. Millions of dollars have been invested into studies on the positive effects of mindfulness practices on students with results showing improved sleep, increased retention rates, and lower anxiety levels. Mindfulness practices not only have positive impacts on them at the time of the practice but the effects carry on throughout schooling into higher education. In one study by the University of California Santa Barbara, it was discovered that integrating mindfulness practices reduced mind-wandering, which helped to improve scores on the reading comprehension portion of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).

Adapting intentional practices that benefit your mind, body and soul will naturally allow positivity to find you and influence your life. The positive outcomes will spill over onto those who surround you, creating a waterfall effect on all aspects of your life. Welcome and embrace mindfulness, spirituality, and self-care into your everyday routine — at work, school and at home. Every movement, encounter, and thought is an opportunity to intentionally be positive in the present moment.

Are School Assignments Important?

assignments

The task is a fundamental factor for the learning process, but its characteristics and objectives must start with a clear planning that takes into account the purpose of each work. Homework is an essential element in the learning process of children and young people. However, the assignments are not always well received by students or even by parents themselves.

The first because they feel that it takes away part of their time, or do not consider that it is relevant. The second because sometimes they feel overwhelmed. These two reasons are the common ones. However, the task has either a purpose of consolidating the learning acquired in the classroom or of advancing what will be worked on later. The homework has the characteristic of forming the concept of responsibility from the youngest children. It comes with the understanding that they are also an active part of their own intellectual growth.

Teachers played a key role in assigning tasks. They must consider the capability of children to make sure the task should not look like a burden. As a teacher, teaching English to children is supposed to consider the student vocabulary and picking the power and then ask to write an essay on a topic accordingly.

A need

Beyond the possible lack of clarity, experts point out the importance of this tool as a strategy for a relationship between parents and children. The development of the assignments is a moment in which parents and children can also socialize through the doubts. The task can’t be designed for the father to do it, but it must be built and requested in such a clear way that allows parents to get involved and have a few moments of meeting with the children.

Without conflicts

This issue can’t be the source of conflicts between home and school. For the teacher, a permanent and fluid dialogue should be established. Therefore, the teachers and the parents understand the objectives pursued with the development of the duties for the house. Experts suggest that in each subject the student takes, a schedule of tasks should be presented for each period. The schedule or planning must take into account times, resources and skills.

It is also a strategy that serves to dose the number of daily duties received by students. It helps avoid the overload that causes parents and students to be overwhelmed or instead of seeing a positive factor in the task, they feel it as a burden. The strategy, however, should be adjusted to what’s called a technology development. Today, the Internet offers a lot of opportunities. To not confuse more, here is the homepage for those who are interested in assignments and want them to be done quickly.

Assignments by ages

The ideal type of tasks is related to the age of the student. In the case of young children, the most convenient assignments are those that start doing, drawing, building and creating. These are tasks that contribute to the development process of the youngest ones by supporting their strengthening of motor skills, for example. As the children advance in age, grade level and maturity, the tasks also become a little more complex, with the aim of helping them acquire skills and knowledge of different options.

In the case of older students, the assignments should be geared towards generating reflection in young people. This help students to not limit themselves only to consult and copy a response textually but establish relationships that can compare situations. They learn to reflect on the consequences of a given event. This type of schoolwork favors the use of thinking skills. There are a number of skills that they should strengthen, and the tasks should help them. Under these parameters, homework can become a time and an opportunity to strengthen the relationship between parents and children. The task of all, then, would not turn schoolwork into a source of quarreling, but into a very important learning.

11 Positive Words To Put In Your Personal Statement

personal statement

You have your scores right, know which universities you would like to attend, and have done everything possible to meet the requirements for admission. The next big hurdle is writing a personal statement. So, the emphasis is on the “personal.”

Thus, it should be unique, and since you are fighting for limited opportunities with other numerous candidates; you want yours to stand out. Sometimes, it may feel necessary to get an affordable personal statement writer. That, however, doesn’t imply that you can’t write a compelling personal statement on your own.

What is A Personal Statement?

Before the college admissions board considers you as a candidate, you have to convince them that you are suitable. A personal statement is a reflective essay that you write to UCAS (university and college admissions service), to demonstrate your level of commitment and that you are the right fit for your choice of course.

It is different from the personal statement you may write when applying for a job. Moreover, for every university you send an application to, you can only use a single personal statement. It thus emphasizes the quality of personal statement services that you get.

How you present yourself in the personal statement will determine whether or not the board will want to meet, offer you a place, or leave an impression on them.

Emphasis on Writing Persuasively

The arguments you lay out in a personal statement has to persuade those reviewing the applications that you deserve a place in the college or university. It all boils down to the words you use in the personal statement:

  • Use the first Person. Any experienced personal statement writing service will use the reference “I”, in writing a personal statement. The same applies to you. Write as if you are talking to someone about yourself. Watch out that you don’t overuse it, however.
  • Choice of words. What you write about yourself should exude an upbeat tone. That implies you should refrain from using negative words. Also, you should keep away from qualifying words, such as, somewhat, entirely, and probably.
  • Be direct. Too many qualifying words may take away the meaning of your point. Demonstrate confidence in yourself, abilities, and skills. In as much as you would like to impress the admissions board, settle for the words you are comfortable using. The wrong use of words isn’t appealing.

The Power of Positive Words

The use of positive or active words gives your application additional impact. It helps you make a stronger impression on whoever is reviewing the personal statement. You may have heard other people refer to them as buzzwords.

You can use these words in describing the achievements you have made and any responsibilities you have taken. Using targeted active verbs shows that you are a person who takes action and has initiative.

Power words show precision and clarity in your statement. It will help you get ahead of other candidates, as they give you the confidence to communicate your ideas. There are many keywords, worth incorporating into your statement but we will only list 11 that many can use:

  1. Achieved: to expound on the accomplishments you have made.
  2. Built: it can be a way to show your innovative side. And something that’s out of the box is a great place to start.
  3. Completed: everybody wants someone who can finish whatever they start, or is given to them.
  4. Demonstrated: use it to highlight your abilities or skills mastered over the years, or through a particular experience.
  5. Executed: You should prove that you take the initiative and don’t need to have someone pushing you before you act.
  6. Granted: it could be you excelled in a particular activity and was given a reward for it.
  7. Helped: you have to provide a helping hand to those in need. Also, you have to prove that you can give back to the society if chosen.
  8. Identified: attention to details is critical to succeed in life. It shows that you pay attention and are aware of your surroundings.
  9. Joined: you could have participated in an educational club or one that deals with the challenges the society is facing. If it is for a good cause, talk about it.
  10. Led: show your leadership abilities, in becoming a student leader or the leader of an organization. A good leader is one who can inspire others for the greater good.
  11. Met: show that you deliver or exceed on the expectations.

Conclusion   

It is exciting to join the University of your Dreams finally, and purse the course of your passions. However, you first have to face this “formidable” impediment in your way, called a personal statement. Set yourself towards giving your best, it matters.

Use of power words makes you stand out but ensure that they are relevant to what you are writing. At the end of it all, make every word you use, count. Because the space to sell yourself is limited, and so are the available positions.

How To Encourage A Child’s Brain Development

brain development

The ability of young children to grasp anything is as fast as the speed of light. This is especially from ages birth to three, as they produce 700 new neural connections every second. If you want them to reach the threshold of their potential, you need to take care of many factors, including relationships, experiences, and environment.

The human brain starts developing early in prenatal life- three weeks after conception. Therefore, brain development is something, no parents can compromise. The skills that your child gains in the early years of development will become responsible for the overall academic performance at school. So make sure your child learns ethical practices and acquires great acumen to live a hassle-free life during adolescence.

One of the major differences between brain development in a child versus an adult is the extent and speed of development. The brain of a young child is highly flexible as compared to adult ones. This means that young children’s brains are more susceptible to learning and enriching influences. However, you cannot ignore that your child can develop cognitive problems if they are brought up in a way that limits its development.

The Most Important – Excellent Nutrition

Good food is fundamental for overall child development. You need to maintain a healthy diet for your children to keep them mentally sound and physically fit. If you do not want to miss out any nutrients, vitamins, and omega acids to name a few, you can contact a pediatrician to make a weekly chart of the meals you are going to provide to your children. Sometimes, young ones are more responsive towards a particular dish, of which you need to take care of when preparing the meal.

Doctors recommend a balanced, nutritious diet, which contains all essential nutrients, carbs, vitamins, fatty acids, etc., in the right proportion. If your child is stubborn when it comes to taking balanced diet, don’t be afraid of being creative.  Plenty of finger licking recipes are available online which contain all diet essentials you need to give to your children. Use them and live happily!

Muscle building

Rather than hitting the gym in the adolescence, help your child grow muscles in the early years of development. This is surprisingly easy. Ask your preschooler or kindergartener roll around on the floor for a couple of seconds. Try to change their posture by asking them to roll in both directions. Raise the level of coordination and strength by asking them to hold on to a toy while they roll. Repeat this activity with small breaks in -between. Not only does this make muscles strong but it also fine-tunes all kinds of developmental skills related to balance, coordination, and strength.

Do not ignore the precautions you need to take. Keep the floor clean, free of dust and mosquitoes. Keep an eye on the balance your child makes because ligaments and tendons are weak in the tender age.

Introduce novel materials

Every new experience for your child will act as learning a new chapter of life. So why don’t you keep your child stimulated with new experiences? Let your child discover the new joys of life by experiencing the real world. This can mean everything from bringing new fabrics and materials to touch and play with to bringing him/her along when you leave the house. The idea is to generate tactile stimulation that develops an understanding of how different materials function. This will even enhance spatial awareness as your child learns how to manipulate and combine different toys to play a game.

Keep the eye contact

Eye contact helps build the ciliary muscles of your baby’s eyes. This technique prevents eye problems in the future, and your child will be able to recognize faces early. According to studies, newborns start responding to facial expressions at the age of 2.  This shows that your child is developing the skills of problem-solving while being responsive to social interactions. Figuratively, by keeping the eye contact, you are building the confidence of your child and helping them act like leaders.

Final words

Money May Not Buy Happiness, But Financial Stability Certainly Helps

financial stability

Your parents likely told you once or twice when you were young that money doesn’t buy happiness. Not to say they were wrong, but as we age we begin to understand the importance of peace of mind and that being caught between a rock and a hard place is a lot easier to squeeze out of if you’ve got the right funds stored away.

While money may not buy happiness, there is something to be said about the positive effects budgeting your income (and debts) affords you. Creating stability within your finances can reduce stress and create more opportunities for the funnier things in life. As adults, this financial stability can come in many forms. In particular, saving up for your first home and refinancing your student loans are pretty common, important milestones. Keeping a positive mindset and utilizing habits for success will be essential when working through these challenges.

Adjustment Is Sometimes Necessary

Considering how many graduating adults finish school with debt, refinancing your student loans is a great option that can help provide more financial stability and create more flexibility within your monthly budget. Refinancing can seem like a hassle, but the process is fairly simple and oftentimes easier than you think.

Refinancing can also provide a much-needed mental break considering the negative, stressful feelings that arise when you watch your saving get drained by those huge monthly payments. It’s also important to keep in mind that refinancing doesn’t necessarily mean you’re incapable of paying back your loans. Rather, it’s like tailoring your payments to better fit your current place in life.

Financial stability

There are a few things to consider before refinancing. As the experts at LendKey explain, “When making any financial decision, timing is everything, and refinancing student loans is no different. There are several factors to this – some a student can control and others they cannot – that affect when they should refinance student loans. This includes the timing of graduation, interest rates, employment, and credit score.”

Refinancing also depends on which lender your loans are through as the requirements vary company to company. Either way, it’s definitely worth investigating to see if you qualify. Adjusting your payments to better suit your income makes it easier for you to pay in full and on time each month, which is good news for your credit score and stress levels.

Confidence Is Key

Another significant milestone, buying your first home, is a financial goal that many adults are currently working towards. The process of becoming a homeowner can often seem intimidating, especially if you’re unsure if you’re actually ready for that kind of commitment. It can be fairly easy to focus on the negative feelings that arise when approached with a significant milestone such as this. However, you’re likely not giving yourself enough credit, and although the process can be tricky to navigate at times, it’s important to not deflate your own dreams of owning a home one day.

Of course, there is definitely a lot to consider when it comes to buying your first home: mortgage rates, down payments, property taxes, etc. You also need to ask yourself if you are in a position to stay in your home for an extended period of time. As Quicken Loan suggests: “Generally, we recommend you only consider buying a house if you plan to live there for at least five years, but this depends on a lot of factors, like the housing market, rental prices and how much equity you have in the house.”

Create a goal for yourself

While you may not be able to afford or find your dream home right now, it’s still worth creating a goal for yourself and begin working towards it. With that in mind, shopping for a new home can certainly drain you mentally and physically, which means it can be tempting to give up. Nevertheless, with the right budgeting, discipline, and determination, buying your first home doesn’t have to be so scary.

As we mature, financial stability becomes more and more important. Finishing school, owning a home, and finding the right career are all valuable goals the majority of us all hope to achieve one day. While money may not buy happiness, when we are able to better manage our time and money, we can worry less and enjoy our spectacular life even more.

About the General Data Protection Regulation

You’ve probably heard about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and you might have a few questions about it. Here’s what we know about the law and how it affects MailChimp and our users.

This article is provided as a resource, but it’s not legal advice. We encourage you to speak to legal counsel to learn how the GDPR may affect your organization.

What and Who

The GDPR is a European Union (EU) privacy law that affects businesses around the world. It regulates how any organization that is subject to the Regulation treats or uses the personal data of people located in the EU. Personal data is any piece of data that, used alone or with other data, could identify a person. If you collect, change, transmit, erase, or otherwise use or store the personal data of EU citizens, you’ll need to comply with the GDPR.

The GDPR will replace an older directive on data privacy, Directive 95/46/EC, and it introduces a few important changes that may affect Positive Words Research users.

About Consent

You need to have a legal basis, like consent, to process an EU citizen’s personal data. Under the GDPR, you may use another legal basis for processing personal data, but we anticipate that many Positive Words Research users will rely on consent. This consent must be specific and verifiable.

Verifiable consent requires a written record of when and how someone agreed to let you process their personal data. Consent must also be unambiguous and involve a clear affirmative action. This means clear language and no pre-checked consent boxes.

About Individual Rights

The GDPR also outlines the rights of individuals around their personal data. EU citizens will have the right to ask for details about the way you use their personal data and can ask you to do certain things with that data. You should be prepared to support people’s requests in a timely manner. People have the right to request their personal data be corrected, provided to them, prohibited for certain uses, or removed completely.

You should also be able to tell someone among other things, how their personal data is being used. If they ask, you’re obligated to share the personal data you hold on an individual or offer a way for them to access it.

What is Positive Words Research doing to prepare?

We have modified many of our internal practices and policies because we are committed to compliance with the GDPR. We’re also in the process of building and releasing tools that will make it easier for our users to handle their customer’s data appropriately.

To recap, communicating in any way with Positive Words Research, as an individual or company, you agree with the following: 

  1. Privacy Policy
  2. GDPR Compliance
  3. Terms of Use
  4. Cookie Policy

Also we repeat that if you need to communicate in any way with us related to our website the official contact is our contact page.

What can I do to prepare?

Positive Words Research offers tools related to consent and individual rights to help you comply with the GDPR. We encourage you to consult with legal or other professional counsel about your GDPR preparations.

Collect Consent

Transparent data processing is mandatory, and it’s also an opportunity to strengthen your marketing relationships. We’ve updated Positive Words Research signup forms to help you stay compliant with the latest laws.

If you’re going to rely on consent to process the personal data of EU citizens, the GDPR says you must obtain specific consent from your contacts and clearly explain how you plan to use their personal data.

Related to the sign-up for our newsletter we only use MailChimp which is fully compliant with GDPR. To learn more about MailChimp permission data, check their Export Proof of Consent. To learn more about using MailChimp GDPR-friendly forms, check their  Collect Consent with GDPR Forms.

Why Positivity Can Be The Best Defense Against Your Demons

defense

We all have our own inner demons, such as doubt, insecurity, low-self esteem, or a drive to reach perfection – just to name a few. Inherently, it feels impossible to shake them – but there is hope! The number one course of action to eliminate them forever is to channel the power of positivity. Our mindset affects the choices we make and how we perceive life in general. Therefore, the best line of defense is to utilize positivity in our minds.

This is why positivity can be the best defense against your demons:

1. You stop seeing tunnel vision

Negativity is very limiting. When trapped by it, you only focus on unfavorable circumstances in the present moment as opposed to the possibilities of a better future, the bigger picture, or the bright side of a situation. When you start to think positively, your mind stops limiting itself to perceiving a negative and most-likely, distorted reality. Here, we’re able to see things for what they actually are, not just what we believe them to be. We also learn to stop associating ourselves with strictly negative traits and actually take a step back to view ourselves in our entirety, which is comprised of both good and flawed qualities, not just one or the other.

2. It improves your overall health

Positivity affects both emotional and physical well-being and health. Emotionally, positivity prevents the symptoms of depression and anxiety and is a natural stress-reducer. In regards to the physical improvements, your immune system becomes less susceptible to sickness and disease since positive thinking triggers a stronger immune response. Furthermore, this also promotes better cardiovascular health. As a result, when both our mind and body are sound, we feel our best and are more inclined to make decisions that make us happy and healthy, not harmful like excessively criticizing or hurting ourselves.

3. Positivity leads to emotional resilience

Obstacles stop feeling paralyzing with a positive mindset because believing in the best of things, despite the circumstances, helps you to overcome adversity. Negativity cages you in a self-victimizing mindset, which will make you less likely to take action or responsibility for yourself. When one faces difficult situations in their life with positivity rather than negativity, they develop emotional resilience, learn to use healthier coping mechanisms, and take lessons away from the situation rather than simply complain or feel helpless about it.

4. It encourages productivity

Negativity inherently drains your energy, but positivity increases it. Consequently, this propels you to take more action and put more effort into your obligations in the work or school place. Positivity stimulates brain activity which leads to stronger cognitive function and attention span, which propels you to finish tasks and get things done more efficiently. In other words, you feel eager to accomplish goals one after the other which can translate into your personal life!

5. Naturally attracts you to positive people

We attract what we are, and that is especially significant in the types of relationships we have in life. When you’re positive, others with a similar thought-process will gravitate towards you. Respectively, this leads to you creating a genuine social circle as well as a reliable support system. Positive people bounce off each other’s energy and uplift one another, not berate or put each other down. Sometimes, the fact that you have a solid group of loved ones with positive attitudes can completely put your demons at rest since they will always remind you that there’s more to you than your flaws.

Conclusion

At the end of the day, positivity will always be the best defense against your demons. It reminds you to think of a better future and improves your overall emotional and physical well-being. Positivity can even disprove therapy myths that would otherwise make you skeptical of changing one’s mindset. At first, it may seem that positivity may seem like a pseudo-inspirational concept, but it annihilates that belief by singlehandedly being the most significant element in a person can welcome into their life, mind, and heart because it changes the way they experience life overall.
