Infidelity

There are few greater triggers in life than infidelity. Cheating in relationships brings out the deepest fears and insecurities, while also creating its own kind of trauma.

Because of this, and the general monogamistic approach to relationships that humanity has had for most of recorded history, we view infidelity as a very black and white subject. It is wrong. The cheater is scum. The person cheated on is a poor victim.

However, as with most things in life, the older we get the more we realize there is a lot more grey area than stark black and white. Infidelity is one of the subjects that lives in that in-between.

Create a Morning Routine

We have all heard about the importance of starting each morning in a way that leaves you feeling awake, motivated, and inspired to take on the day.

Some people do this by waking up at 4am to get an early workout in. Others, who are slightly less ambitious, might try to just set their alarms 5-10 minutes earlier just to alleviate that rushed feeling in the morning.
