How Writing Things Down Can Change Your Life | Personal Development | Scoop.it

Here are six different ways that writing things down can change your life, and what you can do to get the most out of each.

10 Proven Ways To Increase Your Happiness | Personal Development | Scoop.it

Happiness is so interesting, because we all have different ideas about what it is and how to get it. It’s also no surprise that it’s the No.1 value for Buffer’s culture, if you see our slidedeck about it. So naturally we are obsessed with it.

 

The author would love to be happier, as I’m sure most people would, so he thought it would be interesting to find some ways to become a happier person that are actually backed up by science. Here are ten of the best ones.

5 Gut Instincts You Don’t Want to Ignore

5 Gut Instincts You Don’t Want to Ignore | Personal Development | Scoop.it

Instincts are not some weird mystical power that are only found in the animal kingdom.

 

Gut instincts are degind as: an innate, typically fixed pattern of behaviour in animals in response to certain stimuli.

 

We are born with instincts to help us survive.  As much as we may pretend we are not, we are very much animals; why do we try to deny this?

 

That is not to say that we aren’t incredibly smart or that we aren’t capable of complex thinking. But even though we are very intelligent, our minds are also very clever and like to try to trick us.

 

Instinctually we know when to run from predators; when we are babies, we know how to feed from our mothers and we know when something just feels ‘off’. The problem is when our sixth sense shouts a warning, we stall and we think.

Karin Sebelin's curator insight, November 26, 2013 5:54 PM

It is so easy to blame others, to blame life and circumstances … we hardly want to take responsibility for our actions and for our situation. So often people excuse own problems via other people and life.

 

There are three kind of categories:

The Hang-Ups – People who blame life and outer circumstances for their problems

The Bang-Ups – People who blame past personal problems and hurts

The Gang-Ups – People who blame other people for hindering them

 

TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS!
