Non-Physical behaviors that count as cheating 0 836

By: Chantal D.

What counts as cheating? It’s a question that we may never have a straight answer to. With more and more ways to keep in touch through technology and social media, there are a lot of blurred lines when it comes to what is and isn’t appropriate. 

Texting a friend is fine, but texting a friend before bed every night might be considered less fine. But where are the boundaries?

Besides the obvious sexual acts what is really fascinating about these results is that an emotional connection is actually far more likely to be considered cheating than other explicitly sexual things — like sending naked photos to someone else. That may be for a very good reason — emotional infidelity can be extremely painful.

“Emotional cheating is very hurtful, to know that someone is cheating on us emotionally is heart breaking.”

Why does emotional cheating hurt so much? Well, it’s impossible to write it off as just a little “blip”. If your partner has sex with someone else you can rationalize that ‘it didn’t mean anything’ or ‘it was just sex’. But with emotional cheating, the person obviously does mean something to your partner. It feels like more of a threat to the stability and longevity of your relationship.NFB-01

It’s very serious stuff. Although one heartening part of this is, considering how many different things might be considered cheating and how varied people’s opinions are.

But if you’re not sure about where some of the boundaries fall, here’s what some had to say about the non-physical behaviors that count as cheating, because they’re way more lax than you might have thought. 

Forming A Deep Emotional Bond With Someone Else:

The number one action that people considered cheating was forming an emotional connection with someone else; this can cross the line into infidelity. Some emotional connection like friendships, can be totally innocent, but in other cases they’re definitely inappropriate.

Sending Naked Pictures To Someone Else: 

People sending naked pictures to someone other than your partner would 100 percent be cheating, and yet, sending nudes is OK to many people.

Texting Erotic Messages to Someone Else: 

Sexting someone else may seem pretty inappropriate, but only few thinks that they should be considered cheating. I guess there’s a lot of sliding into the DMs happening.

Time Management is a ‘Waste of Time’ Comments Off on Time Management is a ‘Waste of Time’ 699

Time-Management

A lot of us struggle with time management problems. Unfortunately, we believe that time management is a silver bullet. Merely manage your time correctly, and you’ll be a more productive business owner. You’ll finally be able to spend quality time with your family or start that hobby you’ve been putting off.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news. But, time management won’t solve all of your problems. It may be a waste of time for the following reasons. If time management isn’t working for you — then you’ll want to try these four options instead.

Time management is turning us into stressed-out and unproductive zombies


“The quest for increased personal productivity — for making the best possible use of your limited time — is a dominant motif of our age,” writes Oliver Burkeman in
The Guardian. “And yet the truth is that more often than not, techniques designed to enhance one’s personal productivity seem to exacerbate the very anxieties they were meant to allay,” continues Burkeman. “The better you get at managing time, the less of it you feel that you have.”

Time-Management-01

The point is this: When it comes to time management, we’re fed the same advice over and over again. Even worse, it’s suggested that there’s a one-size-fits-all time management strategy. As a result, we blindly follow these time management tips that aren’t always effective, which causes stress and decreased productivity. 

 

 

The solution? Find your own way to work style

You can then adjust your work style and find the right tools to fit your style.

  • Prioritizes. They want fact-based analysis and debate. They’re also goal-oriented, consistent, and decisive.
  • Planners. They thrive on details, as well as schedules and action plans.
  • Arrangers. They want to be appreciated, and they love acknowledgment. They also like discussing questions and concerns.
  • Visualizers. They are innovative and open-minded. But, they’re not fans of excessive details.

“Time management may be a great system for a machine, but for the rest of us who are emotionally driven human beings — we need to take account for our energy levels, plus your willpower and self-control reduce with every choice you make throughout the day.”

By : Chantal D

Vacation, the place where I feel most comfortable is a place where I am calm. A place that is peaceful in its own ways. It is the place to go to get away from all my troubles. It is the one place where I could sit forever, and never get tired of just staring into the deepest blue I have ever seen. It is the place where I can sit and think the best. A place where nothing matters but what is in that moment. The one place capable of sending my senses into an overload. The place I travelled and ended my journey at, the waves are crashing, the sun is setting, and people are laughing and embracing under the sunset.

The way the deep blue waters meet the gritty beige sand leaves me in such awe.
