Top 5 Costume Ideas For Nigerians Attending A Halloween Party

Halloween, an annual holiday celebrated on the 31st of October in several countries around the world, including Australia, Canada and the United States of America, is not a Nigerian culture and has never been announced as an official holiday in the country.

8 Symptoms of Low Self-Esteem You Should Know

People with low self-esteem rarely live their life to the full. They distance themselves from others, and are thus denied their love and support. They rarely, if ever, make full use of their abilities. Instead, they end up brooding about the injustices of life. Such people are a loss to themselves, their family and to society. Some of them even take to crime, alcohol and drugs.

Invariably, people with low self-esteem are uncomfortable with success. They tend to believe that they don’t deserve success, and they have no clue as to how to savor success. At the same time, they do not hesitate to blame themselves if things go wrong. They take sadistic pleasure in telling the world that they knew things would go wrong. This is an important symptom of low self-esteem, and needs to be treated at the earliest.

People suffering from low self-esteem also have the habit of putting themselves down. They repeatedly tell themselves that they are not good enough and that they are bound to fail. Over a…

Forced Into Retirement? Here's What You Should Do

Did you love your job? If so, you may have been happy with your life. That is until your supervisors explained that your company was cutting costs. Due to those cost cutting measures, you are being forced into early retirement. If you are like many other individuals in your shoes, panic may be the first feeling that sets it. Yes, being forced into early retirement may seem like “the end of the world,” but it doesn’t have to be.

When being forced into early retirement, you will be required to sign a number of important documents. Never agree to retirement without first learning about your company’s rules, restrictions, and attached strings. Will you receive a severance package? Does that severance package eliminate your pension or eliminate you from receiving any other important employee benefits? If so, talk to a financial advisor right away, particularly before you sign anything. Determine what your best course of action is. Is it better to take the severance pay or receiv…

Discover Your Inner Self And Soul

Self refers to our consciousness that guides our actions. That is to say, that the way our conscious mind reacts to the various situations of life all depends on our inner self.

The soul that lies within each one of us is the essence of exploration of our hidden inner self. The soul is believed to possess our true selves. So, to explore our inner-self, we first need to know our soul to establish a connection between the two. Each individual has his own true self that is developed with the passage of time and experience of an individual. And as every human being has their unique experiences, their inner self is also distinguished from one another. Most of the people are of the opinion that the soul is nothing but the unification with one’s own sense of identity. Thus, soul is thought to be eternal and the one that exists even before the actual manifestation of the flesh. It is this soul or inner self that leads our way to self-exploration by establishing a link with the conscious self.…

How To Choose A Fishing Rod And How To Make It Last

No sportsman wins by sheer talent alone. No matter how talented a sportsman is, if his equipment is not good enough, his chances of winning will remain slim. That is because his equipment will hinder rather than help his game. A runner needs good shoes to run. A bowler needs a bowling ball that weighs and fits right in his hand. The same goes with a fisherman and his fishing rod.

Fishing is a sport that many people find enjoyable. It is always a challenge to get the elusive fish to bite the bait, and sitting still for hours on the end just to be able to catch fish can be very relaxing. But regardless of the challenge and the relaxation that fishing offers, the goal of fishing is still to catch some fish. Barring bad luck and circumstances that are really unfavorable for fishing, a good fishing rod is necessary for a good catch.

If you are a beginner at fishing, it is perfectly all right to use a simple fishing rod and reel – nothing spiffy and nothing fancy. When you are jus…

It is the emotional state of children that often keep people in a marriage when they want out though. They have heard all the horror stories about children with trust issues and relationship issues due to their parents b…

4 Reasons Why Most Diets Fail

If you stop and take a minute to look at these four reasons why most diets fail, and then find yourself a diet plan that overcomes these reasons, you will soon find yourself on track to optimal success.


Let’s look at the four key factors that you need to know.

Unrealistic Calorie Intakes The first big reason why most diets fail is because they simply have you striving to take in an unrealistic number of calories each day. In other words, they put you into “starvation mode”. They are causing you to consume so little food that your body literally starts shutting down to conserve fuel.

When it does this, you know that you are on a one-way path to a fat loss plateau. Yes, you do need to lower your calorie intake to see fat loss results, but you need to do so wisely in a way that you can maintain your “metabolic engine”, so to speak.

Lack Of Satiety-Boosting Nutrient Next, another big issue with most conventional diets is they aren’t providing you enough of the two most satisfying nutrients…
