The Importance of Communication

What’s the most important thing in a relationship for you? Is it the sex, the romance, the flowers he/she brings you when they come home from work? The cute good morning/good night texts? Talking? Do you ever feel like anything is missing? Do you ever feel like sometimes you don’t talk enough or you don’t actually let each other in? Well, that’s when your relationship is lacking one of the main factors for it to work, and that’s communication. Don’t get me wrong, sex, romance, etc are important, of course they are but it’s communication that makes your bond intimate and different from any other friendship you have.

It is important to share your emotions, stress and worry with your other half. I feel like the intimacy is never fully there unless you are sharing those important emotions and thoughts – you know, the ones that keep you awake at 3 a.m. Most relationships end due to the lack of romance and forgetting to communicate. Communicating is what keeps the romance alive too, it makes your partner feel wanted and important, they know you are going to them because they are the person you trust most.

Stress, Fear & Anxiety – Today’s Thoughts!

“To escape fear, you have to go through it, not around.” – Richie Norton

We live in a society where we fear vulnerability, we fear opening up and being true to ourselves because we are scared of judgement and mistreatment from others. We are afraid of portraying who we truly are to those around us, for fear of being wounded and disappointed. It is a funny old world we live in. A world where we tell people to be themselves and be true to who they are, and when they are, we judge them for it, we say horrible things and put them down. This is not how we should live, this is not how life should be. Nobody is better than anybody else, we are all born and we all die.

Our fear is what is causing an increase in mental illnesses, we have become more anxious and stressed, currently worrying about others and what others think of us. We shouldn’t have to live in a society where we fear looking a certain way, dressing a certain way, doing our make-up a certain way; we’re all different, we all like different things and not everybody suits everything that’s “on trend”.

My Top 5 Ideal Apps for Students!

Are you a college student struggling to stay organised? Are you struggling with the increasing workload and need a way to help yourself de-stress? Or maybe you want to save on items of clothing or food (we all know the struggle of being a poor student)! In this post, I will show you my top five favourite apps that I like to use. These selected apps have helped me while at uni, but I find they also come in handy in every day life, work, etc.

I thought I would start off with the most relevant and, for me, most important – UNiDAYS. We students know that money isn’t always no object so we’re always looking for ways to save a few £. Personally, I am always looking to save money wherever and whenever I can, and UNiDAYS is perfect for that. Are you even a student if you don’t take advantage of the discount? Always, ALWAYS use discount! UNiDAYS also has a website and is completely free to sign up to, as long as you’re a student, obviously. It offers discount on Fashion and Beauty, Lifestyle, Food, Health & Fitness, Technology and more, allowing you to make those extra little savings that, I find, as a student, go a long way. It provides discount on brands, such as Urban Outfitters, Adidas, TopShop/TopMan, Missguided, ect. If you’re one to enjoy a nice meal out with your friends, you are able to get money off at Zizzi’s, Bill’s, etc, or even picking up a quick lunch between lectures, they offer discounts at fast food restaurants also. Come on, who doesn’t just love discounted food? I know I do.
