How To Survive Sharing A Bathroom

By | Home, Inspiration

Whether it’s your roommate, sibling, or partner, sharing a bathroom can be straining on each other day to day especially when there are only 1-1.5 bathrooms in the house. Make use of your bathroom time without getting into hot water around the people you live with. 

To make sure that you’re not that person who is known for being in the bathroom for 2 hours doing your hair, makeup, or shaving, then it’s necessary to use the bathroom for only the toilet and shower. The less time used in the bathroom, the more time for necessary duties in there.

Don’t store everything in the bathroom

It helps not waste time in the bathroom if the stuff you’re using in there isn’t in it. If there is a closet or designated storage area for towels, makeup, soap or tweezers outside of the bathroom, take advantage and organize it as best as you can.

Have Mirrors Throughout The House

Similar to not having everything all in the bathroom, that applies to mirrors too. Have mirrors throughout the house. This is an opportunity to consider investing in a bedroom vanity for makeup or the chance to spruce up your home decor with placing a couple of mirrors around the house. Mirrors help people get ready in the morning in other places of the house without the use of the bathroom. This helps clear up time for people who need to do what’s necessary for the bathroom while it doesn’t conflict with your own “getting ready” routine.

Coordinate Schedules

Align your schedule with the people you live with. Even with all these tips, mornings in the bathroom can still create quite a time crunch. Shower at night and there is no need to take up more time in the morning while people get ready. Stagger your schedule to allow time for each person to get their bathroom time. By staggering, you can plan and accommodate to your own routine.

From time to time, there may be no entirely functional way to share a bathroom with more than one person, but with the right way to organize, schedule, and with the help of a routine adjustment, it definitely is possible.

How To Find Your Soulmate Without Tinder

By | Inspiration

Many people get frustrated about finding their soulmate in life. There’s a popular saying that “love finds you and not the other way around.” That quote may ring true, but there’s also a way you can open your arms to love and find your soulmate, sooner than you think. If you’re interested in finding out how to meet your soulmate, read below.

The law of attraction can be a complex process but it can be understood by breaking down the concept. Let’s get into it a little bit.

In life, we gravitate toward people, places and things because we commit to them, and allow that commitment to manifest in our minds. The law of attraction is embodying an idea that you live from each day.

The first thing step in finding the love of your life is to write down the qualities you want in a soulmate, and where you want your life to gravitate. Look inside your heart and ask yourself, “Would your soulmate be interested in dating you?”

Let’s be honest, everyone wants to say “yes” to that question but be transparent with yourself and try to identify who you are in a relationship, what you are good at in a relationship and what you may struggle with.

Not only do you need a list of qualities that make a good soulmate, but a list of deal breakers and red flags that won’t cut it for a lasting relationship.

These lists help you acknowledge standards and expectations you want to have in a lifelong relationship with a partner that you, ideally, want to gravitate toward.

The next piece of advice is to clear a space in your heart. Open your heart to heal it from anything that has hurt you. If you have past relationship mementos, family trauma, personal trauma or anything else that prevents you from looking towards true love, then it’s best to achieve closure with those things. 

If you haven’t found the right person yet, and you’re doing the lists, and achieving closure, ask yourself if you’re being the right person for yourself? If not, take action toward being that right person. Remember, the more you improve yourself, the healthier your relationships and friendships will be — which will make you one step closer to finding your true soulmate.

If you commit to manifesting your soulmate by just being the best person you can, your life will evolve to get you there.

With that said, enjoy being single and becoming your best self. One of the best parts of not being tied up with a significant other is that you get the chance to discover the best parts of yourself on your own. Learn to enjoy sleeping alone, traveling solo, discovering new hobbies and finding pleasure in doing what you want and when you want — celebrate where you are right now.

Don’t forget to pamper yourself and prove how valuable you are. Another aspect to consider: being single gives you opportunities to reflect and embrace the dark aspects of yourself you’ve been unwilling to look at so you can grow from those things.

But, do you want to know a secret? Your soulmate is you.

The perfect person in your life is you, and only you know what makes you happy. The list you made, or one you are about to make?  It comes from you and who your soul is. The joy that comes from your growth will create a happier and healthier you. Your other half is you because ultimately, you are the most stable thing in your own life.

Maybe there is a life partner out there for you, who will love you for who you are, but do you know who you are yet? This is the time to find out.
