21 Tips to Keep Your Shit Together When You're Depressed. A while ago, I penned a fairly angry response to something circulating on the internet – the 21 Habits of Happy People. It pissed me off beyond belief, that there was an inference that if you weren’t Happy, you simply weren’t doing the right things. I’ve had depression for as long as I can remember. It’s manifested in different ways. So, this Cult of Happy article just set me off. It’s bad enough without people ramming Happy Tips at you through facebook. A friend of mine suggested that I write something from my point of view because, surprisingly, I manage to give an outwards impression of having my shit together. So, here it is. My 21 Tips on Keeping Your Shit Together During Depression 1) Know that you’re not alone. 2) Understand that the Happy People are usually acting out of some genuine (albeit misguided) concern for you, that it’s coming from a good place, even if the advice feels like you’re being blamed for your disease. 3) Enlist the help of a professional. 11) Cry.
Dining in a Romantic Cavern Along the Adriatic Sea Boutique hotel Grotta Palasezze, located in the town of Polignano a Mare, sits along the eastern coast of Italy with a stunning view of the Adriatic Sea. The hotel and restaurants within have been carved out of the limestone rocks along the shores and according to the hotel website, "For well over 250 years the cavern has been at the heart of the region’s festivities and still today remains a unique and romantic location for your celebrations and events." Within the hotel and tucked into the Italian cliffs is The Summer Cave restaurant, which provides an exclusive dining experience for those who aren't incredibly afraid of heights. Sitting along the cliff's edge, protected by a simple dividing fence, visitors will enjoy delicious Italian cuisine as they gaze out along the vibrant blue waters of the Sea. Dim lighting, hardwood floors, and a simple decor add to the elegant ambiance of this unique and cave-like experience. Grotta Palasezze Hotel via [Inhabitat]
Trail Wallet: Travel Budget App and Expense Tracker We are Simon Fairbairn and Erin McNeaney of Never Ending Voyage, a couple who’ve been travelling full time since March 2010. Managing our finances is what has enabled us to have so many wonderful experiences but, after 3 years on the road, we needed something better than scribbled notes, loose receipts and complicated spreadsheets to track our expenses. So we built Trail Wallet. Nobody wants to worry about money while travelling, but we all do. Tracking your finances is a simple way to get some freedom from this financial anxiety. Instead of just hoping you’ve got enough money, know. “Because Trail Wallet is super easy to use, fast, and has a fun and beautiful interface I’ve found myself tracking all of my costs for the past couple of months — and actually enjoying doing so!”
Top Five Regrets of The Dying For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives. People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality. I learnt never to underestimate someone’s capacity for growth. When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. 1. This was the most common regret of all. It is very important to try and honour at least some of your dreams along the way. 2. This came from every male patient that I nursed. By simplifying your lifestyle and making conscious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. 3. Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. We cannot control the reactions of others. 4. It is common for anyone in a busy lifestyle to let friendships slip. 5. This is a surprisingly common one.

Increasing Solar Activity And Disturbances In Earth's Magnetic Field Affect Our Behavior And Increase Our Health Michael Forrester, Prevent DiseaseWaking Times Climaxing yesterday, the sun will have unleashed three X-class solar flares. These are the strongest flares of the year so far, and they signal a significant increase in solar activity with more to come. Historically, research has been conducted to link the 11 year cycle of the sun to changes in human behavior and society. Research done in the last hundred years that shows the most malefic effects from solar activity come at the sunspot minima. Solar flares are intense blooms of radiation that come from the release of the magnetic energy associated with sunspots. What is a Solar Cycle? The number of sunspots increase and decrease over time in a regular, approximately 11-year cycle, called the solar or sunspot cycle. Solar Minimum: According to NOAA and NASA, the sunspot cycle hit an unusually deep bottom from 2007 to 2009. Solar Maximum: The Sun’s record-breaking sleep ended in 2010.

How to do Ibiza on a budget | Travel Ibiza Town Arriving at the airport, head straight for the bus stop outside – taxis are pricey and you can queue for an hour in peak season. Bus No 10 makes the 10km route every 15 minutes in summer (ibizabus.com for winter schedules) and drops you right in the port (don't get off at the bus station, as it's quite far from the centre). Ibiza Town offers plenty of budget accommodation, but there are a few absolute standouts. Across the square is the quirky Casa Huéspedes Vara de Rey (+34 971 301376, hibiza.com, doubles from €53), a sprawling guesthouse with a boho vibe. Start with a walk up into topsy-turvy Dalt Vila (literally "high town") – the Unesco world heritage site is a maze of cobbles and whitewashed walls. The sensory-overload Medieval festival in May is free and one of the most dramatic ways to experience Dalt Vila, with performances, strolling musicians, singing and dancing. Ibiza Town's Dalt Vila. Sushi is hugely popular in Ibiza, and also astronomically expensive. The south
