Whether it’s a friend, classmate, co-worker, or even a relative, there will always be people who we simply don’t like. Maybe it’s because of their guts, or maybe they’re just plain annoying. Even so, if there’s not much of an issue between you two and you just want to maintain a healthy environment, there are tons of ways to do so. Here are only some of them.

Just don’t show it

Of course, there are varying levels to this. There’s a difference between not liking someone and actually hating them with a passion. If you’re still at a level where you just think of the person as annoying, then don’t think too much about it and just don’t show the other person that you don’t like them. Chances are, this person doesn’t really know that you don’t like him too. This is simply the best and easiest way to avoid tension and conflict.

Stay calm and collected

On the other hand, if the tension gets really high and you’ve already shown signs of hostility towards each other, it will be best to remain calm during a confrontation. But then again, this is easier said than done, especially if you really hate this person. Staying calm, though, will still be ideal in heated scenarios. For one, you can deliver your feelings and thoughts better. If you speak too emotionally, you won’t convey the message as effectively. You can also prevent the conflict from becoming an all-out fight.

Keep in mind that you’re both different

When you start to dislike someone, try to remember that they act the way they do because you are both different people. You won’t always share the same interests. There are some things he/she likes that you don’t. When you remember this, it’ll be easier for you to avoid thinking of someone in a bad light. But then again, you can’t really like someone instantly because of that. So, just think the way you want to but keep it to yourself.

Don’t take the bait

For the most part, the people we hate are those who try to pick on us or bully us. Whether it’s at school or at work, there’s always going to be that one person who does that. If you encounter a person who keeps belittling you, control your emotions and don’t be aggressive. Showing your anger will only make them feel more powerful. What you can do instead is to ask probing questions like what their problem is with you in particular. This will turn the spotlight on them shows them if they want you to treat them with respect, they should earn it.

  • The piano is among the most popular instruments, and for good reason. You might notice that classical music is mostly played with the piano. In addition to that, the piano is also used in many other genres of music, from jazz to blues, to even rock and EDM. If you think the piano is the right instrument for you, here are some other reasons to take into consideration.

    It ups your musical knowledge

    First of all, if you already know how to play another instrument, learning how to play the piano can actually make you a better musician. Having an understanding of how to play the piano makes it easier for you to understand chords in other instruments. This is because it’s easy to identify the bass and treble sounds using the piano. Piano keys are also used to identify pitch.  If you notice, singers sometimes ask a pianist to play a key so that they can adjust their voice and pitch.

    It can be easy to learn

    There is a reason why you see really young kids already being good at playing the piano. The piano is a really good starting point if you want to get into music. When you learn piano, you are introduced to the basics of notes and scales. Music theory is also easily learned because it is immediately involved in playing the piano itself. While learning, you will learn a lot about how music actually works along the way. In our time, it can also be easy to learn because of YouTube. If you already have a piano or keyboard, you could try searching for videos on the web.

    It can give the brain a workout

    Just like with every other instrument, you’ll give your brain a good workout when you play the piano. This is because you’ll be forced to practice mind-muscle coordination. When playing the piano, we use both of our hands. Naturally, you might have trouble with your non-dominant hand. In addition to that, each hand plays different keys and at different times. This trains our brain to focus on our action no matter if your left and right hands are playing differently. This will definitely improve our brain function throughout.

    It can help one relax

    Listening to classical music has always been found to be relaxing. If you observe, many classical pieces are played mainly on the piano. When you play on the piano yourself, you’ll also find that it is quite therapeutic. For example, observe the sensations on your fingers when you start playing a piano. If you close your eyes and feel it intently, you can feel the vibrations of the keys. This can be your own form of meditation!

  • You might have grown up hearing that you should drink about 8 glasses of water a day. But how important is it really? In Singapore, the water is clean enough that you could drink tap water without worry. That means you can drink water freely all day. So should you do it? Here, then, are some of the important benefits of drinking enough water daily.

    1. The brain needs water

    Brain function is strongly affected by our hydration. This is simply because just like every organ in the body, our brain needs water to function well. Mild dehydration, for example, has actually been found to impair memory and brain performance. If we are dehydrated for a longer time, it can be severely detrimental to our thinking and reasoning.

    2. Our bodily fluids depend on it

    Digestion, circulation, distribution of nutrients, and all other bodily processes need water to function effectively. That is because all of these rely on our body fluids to do their work effectively. Also, it’s not just our internal organs that need water, even our skin and our eyes benefit from being hydrated. This is also why our brain tells us we are thirsty. To let us know that the body is running out of water.

    3. Improve physical performance

    Staying hydrated can clearly improve physical performance. Why do you think you get thirsty even if you do just jog for a while? When we lose too much water through sweat during physical activities, our muscle tissues get deprived of oxygen and end up losing energy. Hence, physical performance becomes limited. So, always remember to drink enough water before, during, and after exercise or any physical activity.

    4. Water cleanses the body

    In the present day, much of the food we consume is high in sodium. The recommended daily intake is only 1500mg-2300mg but on average, we ingest 3400 mg. This is mainly because of fast food and processed food like hotdogs and ham. When we consume too much sodium, our body won’t be able to flush everything out and they become toxins that are harmful to the body. In this case, water is important because it improves circulation and helps flush out all these excess toxins. Drinking enough helps cleanse the body thoroughly.

    5. It can help with weight loss

    Simply put, you should drink a lot of water before every meal to help reduce your food intake if you want to lose weight. Many people, when they hit the gym trying to lose weight, drink sports drinks instead of water. Because sports drinks are relatively high in sugar, it can limit your weight loss efforts in some ways. The logic behind water helping with weight loss is also simple and really obvious. As mentioned above, by drinking water, you won’t be hungry often so you’ll reduce your food intake.

  • Most people would frown at or feel horrified at the idea of having insects as pets, but insects are not only interesting creatures, they also require smaller space to live in and minimal to no socialization or interaction, which is ironic, because there are more insects in the world than humans.

    Insects are also ideal for individuals who do not want pets that need a lot of attention and care. Like all living creatures, however, insects also need the same commitment from their owners. So, how do you choose which is the right insect for you as a beginner?

    What Does It Need?

    Research about the insect’s unique requirements. One tedious part about keeping insects as pets is finding the right food. Expert insect owners, for example, raise other bugs to feed their pets, a task that can’t be handled easily by a beginner. You should be ready to provide the appropriate housing as well that will mimic their natural environment as close as possible.

    Who Can Own One?

    As a general rule, first-time pet owners should pick insects that are relatively easy to care for, are docile and not dangerous, and hardy. Insects should be handled with great care, that is why it’s not a good idea to have a small child look after it. Make sure that your family will agree on keeping an insect as a pet, so that everyone learns how to handle and care for it properly because they’re fragile.

    Common Insect Pets for Beginners

    1.  Madagascar Hissing Cockroach

    Only 25 species of over 4,000 roaches are considered suitable as pets, but the hissing roaches are the most ideal for beginners because they docile and will easily get used to being handled by human hands.

    2.  Praying Mantis

    If you don’t like the idea of roaches, why not try its relative, the mantises. A lot of people find them interesting not just because of their appearance, but also for their hunting capabilities.

    3.  Tarantula

    This insect is low-maintenance, but is considered fragile, that is why it’s not an ideal pet for a family that has children. Choose species that are docile and are less likely to bite if you’re a beginner. Tarantulas also live longer than most insects on this list, and with the right care, can survive up to 30 years depending on the species.

    4.  Scorpion

    A lot of people find the scorpion fascinating, but they are also a challenge to handle because they have claws and a sting. There are scorpion species that are recommended for beginners, but make sure to research about the species’ natural habitat and needs. Those that live in the forests have different needs than those that live in the desert.

    5.  Millipede

    A millipede is also an ideal beginner’s choice because they are easy to handle. However, like all the others on the list, you need to know what the species specifically needs to give it the best possible care, such as food and housing.
