Beer, Brains, and Confidence: TO TRAVEL R- Travel is good for lots of things, but it can also increase mental well-being, ☝️ and not just in the short-term. Whether you’re traveling for business, on a one-week family holiday, or have sold everything to pursue a life on the road, traveling can make you a happier person by building self-confidence, providing new experiences and memories, breaking routine and allowing you to meet people from all over the world. 🤔 So next time you find yourself heading out on a shopping spree to lift your mood, why not put that money towards a flight instead?👀 Here are a few ways in which travel can make you happier: ✔️Happiness is infectious. When locals are happy, smiling and friendly, it has an immediate knock-on effect. Smiles and happiness are contagious! ✔️Being away makes you appreciate your family and home. 🏡 Being away from things we often take for granted, family, close friends, home… It makes us appreciate them more. ✔️You make new friends! It’s much easier to make new friends on the road than it is at home, where people are less inclined to chat to strangers on a bus or strike up conversation at the bar. When people are away from home, there seem to be less boundaries to cross and making friends becomes much easier, whether it’s a local curious to know where you’ve come from or a fellow travelers keen to have someone with whom to enjoy a beer or share a taxi. ✔️Education. Whether it’s learning a new skill such as cooking Thai food or learning a new language, learning about a new culture, travel presents ways in which we can further our knowledge and education. Learning makes our brains more active, which psychologists have found increases our level of happiness, articularly when learning something we find enjoyable. - Now that you know about the great benefits of traveling… what’s your next destination? 😉 Comment below!👇 - travel happiness culture millionairementor

Climbing, Food, and Friends: LIFE IS MEANT TO BE ENJOYED Nowadays everyone including you are being subjected to a socially constructed myth that you’re either “working and paying your dues”, or you’re “being lazy”. There’s no in-between. Enjoyment is greedy, work is good. 🤔 The reason so many people in the American workforce are unhappy is because they are being told a lie: getting ahead, scaling the ladder, or making more money are supposed to make you happy. But this is not true. Any culture with an ounce of wisdom will tell you that what makes you happy are: ✔️Connections with other people. ✔️Companionship. ✔️New experiences, and discovering yourself. This is why other countries are more “people oriented” versus being simply career minded. 👇Here’s the solution to start enjoying life! Simply shift priorities! Do the unthinkable and put “getting ahead” and climbing your individual or corporate career ladders on the back-burner. Prioritize meeting people and enjoying life. Find ways to supplement your income and turn your full-time job into a part-time. Spend the rest of your extra hours taking dance classes, cooking food, throwing dinner parties, going out, or just relaxing in nature. - Finally, a very important point to make is that we become scared that making lifestyle-happiness-low stress a priority over, say, climbing a corporate ladder or working more, is that you’ll end up a “bum”, you won’t have enough saved for “retirement”, maybe your friends will think you’re a loser. Nope. By leading a more relaxed lifestyle, your performance will go up. Happiness=greater performance. You’re more likely to become a very successful person by cutting the anxiety out of your life, and giving yourself more space for your imagination to flourish into new ideas. Try it out, and let me know what happens! - life enjoy millionairementor

H&M has since removed the image from their website and issued an apology. Hopefully, they will be looking to hiring someone who is familiar with black culture among others.

TIMES NOVEMBER 8,2020 Oprah Winfrey Elected Presidem ‘The Boondocks’ Predicts An OprahWinfrey Presidency In 2006 Episode “Return Of The King” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like many of the craziest-biggest moments in history, an Oprah2020 campaign was predicted in an episode of an adult cartoon series. From the prediction of Trump’s presidential campaign in ‘The Simpsons’ to Bruce Jenner’s transformation in ‘Family Guy,’ adult animated cartoons have been on point for the last several years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, amid the talk of Oprah’s potential presidential campaign, a connection between this morning’s headlines and a scene from a 2006 episode of Adult Swim’s ‘The Boondocks’ has surfaced. Just twelve years ago, the show predicted a Winfrey Presidency with a newspaper that read, “November 8, 2020. Oprah Winfrey Elected President.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the episode, which is the 9th of the first season, Huey Freeman tells an alternate version of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination. Titled, “Return of the King”, Freeman says instead of being killed, King slips into a coma for 32 years. In 2000, he wakes up and heads to vote in the presidential election but is turned away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As the episode continued, Huey showed King how the culture plummeted after his shooting, as everyone was waiting for him to come back. So, Huey convinced him to reach out to the public again. But, disappointed in their ignorance, King set the record straight, just before revealing that he was leaving the country. That was the last time Huey saw King. At the end of the episode, the newspaper revealed that the year was now 2020. King had died at the age of 91 and Oprah has been elected President.

But, she wasted no time in shedding light on something that it has often been dimmed on-abuse. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It's the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice. To tyrants and victims, and secrets and lies," she says. "What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A victim of sexual abuse herself, Winfrey admits that she has been inspired by all of the stories of the women who have come forward. She later highlighted Recy Taylor, a woman of color who was brutally raped by six white men in 1944. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “She lived as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men.
