But it’s how you handle it and turn it around that really shapes who you are as a person. We can learn a lot from someone like Terry Crews, who has been through some seriously rough periods in his life. From dealing with a pornography addiction that nearly ruined his marriage, to keeping calm when he was sexually assaulted, the actor has shown that he has some serious grit to overcome these dark times in life and come out better and stronger. But it’s not always about beating the odds and…

old problems, alternative solutions

Keeping fit and staying active is essential for good health. But as age catches up to you, your body may not be as resilient as it used to be. This can result in unexpected aches, pains, and injuries that keep you out of action for longer than you would like. Non-invasive treatments are commonly used today to diagnose and treat these pains, whether it’s a joint or a muscular injury. These modern alternative therapies now include shockwave, ultrasound, heat, acupuncture, dry needling, and more. But should you give them a shot? “They are all effective for treating aches, pains and injuries,” says Dr Gowreeson Thevendran, a specialist in orthopaedic surgery. “However, their effectiveness can vary depending on how severe and chronic the aches, pains and injuries are.” “It is common to try nonoperative…

Sure, you’ve heard of Tupperware, scrap-booking, wine tasting and spa parties. But it’s not just girls who know how to have fun. Men can have their share of ingenious ways to get together. Just add waxing to that list. Better still, a bachelor Brazilian waxing party for your buddy who’s soon to be married. While it might not sound like an ideal evening out for some, waxing parties are gaining popularity the world over. In Singapore, bachelor waxing is a new Brazilian waxing experience introduced by Thomas D’esthetique, the leading men’s aesthetics, wellness and skincare salon. Its founder, Thomas Tong, has over 20 years of experience as a face and body aromatherapist for men, skilled at hair removal via Brazilian waxing. Thomas D’esthetique provides two waxing services to suit one’s comfort level.…

HOW DO I BORROW MONEY FROM MY FRIEND WITHOUT MAKING THINGS AWKWARD? – SHAUN “People would rather talk about their sex problems, that they need Viagra, than talk about their financial problems,” notes Brad Klontz, Psy.D., CFP, founder of the Financial Psychology Institute and author of Mind Over Money: Overcoming the Money Disorders That Threaten Our Financial Health. The reason is that money reflects social status and thus our socioeconomic tribe, Klontz says.

This, on a biological level, feels like a threat to your survival.” Asking…
