It is that time of year where we are getting together with friends and family to celebrate and we are so looking forward to that but…
It is also a time when you can realise that some of the relationships you have might be working against your health.
What this means?
Numerous studies have linked unhealthy relationships with friends to a variety of issues including lower self-esteem to stress and even higher blood pressure.
According to Richard Slatcher, a professor of psychology “The mark of a good friendship is it makes us feel good about ourselves and we get a sense of belonging.”
So how do we assess a friendship? Slatcher recommends asking yourself two questions:
Do I feel good about myself after spending time with them?
Does this person make me feel like I’m understood or do they get where I’m coming from?
Maybe you don’t believe in the power of astrology but it certainly is eerie when those horoscopes play out…
As holiday season is upon us and you may be meeting new people it certainly is handy to have some extra help navigating new conversations and using the strengths of your star sign to your advantage can be a great start!
What this means?
Astrologer Rachel Lang says that our zodiac “sun signs are big indicators of our personality, so they show some of our preferences and how we express ourselves in the world.”
Importantly sun signs also give “clues about what fires us up,” which can help us avoid topics that might be points of friction with people we're meeting for the first or second time.
All you need to do is take this 2 minute survey by 28 November 2021 to go into the draw to win.
