Being informed is always in style

Swimming has got to be one of life’s greatest pleasures; well it is for me at least. I can’t possibly imagine another kind of exercise that’s more relaxing and rejuvenating at the same time, making you feel no effort when staying in shape. Just take a plunge and let water do its therapeutics.

When you're training karate for a couple of months, there's only one thing on your mind: “When will I get my black belt?” You probably know someone with a black belt and think you will never get that good as to earn one yourself. The truth is, there's a whole rainbow of colours before you get to black, all of which symbolize your growth. In fact, the colours of karate belts are not there to intimidate you, but to let you know how far you've progressed as an individual – both inside and outside of the technique.

When it comes to basic oral hygiene we all know the drill: brush and floss like your life depends on it. But don't fool yourself, that's the least that you can do for your oral health. In addition to brushing and flossing, using a tongue scraper can help ensure your mouth is fresh and bacteria-free. When you're brushing and flossing you are solely focusing on cleaning your teeth, but there are also millions of bacteria that collect on your tongue throughout the day. Merely brushing your tongue and using a mouthwash does little to remove these bacteria. Almost half of the bacteria in the mouth live on the surface of the tongue, and if not removed, they can cause bad breath as well as other dental health issues such as gum disease.

As a mature woman, you want to look and feel sexy and confident while still being dressed appropriately for your age. Many women think that being fashionable means following the latest trends, but what happens when you don't really like what's trending at the moment and you don't feel comfortable wearing that style? If this is your case, I recommend that you go for classy designs. As opposed to what many people may believe, classy is not boring or lifeless. You can be chic and stylish if you pay attention to the following things.

If you are a dog parent, you certainly know how much your furry pet is active and loves to play. Dogs are curious, intuitive and cheerful animals which entertain themselves all the time with everything they have at their disposal. Hence, choosing toys and accessories...

As the years pass, and I watch society grow increasingly dependent on technology, I start to realize that mine was probably one of the last generations to have experienced a healthy and happy childhood. From tablets to smartphones, today children are preoccupied with objects that rob them of their attention and prevent them from focusing on the real world. Instead of the simplistic toys of the past, today kids are playing with things that are electrical, computerized, and I must say, expensive. Quite sad, isn't it?

The hotness of summer always comes hand in hand with cool clothing rules. And by cool, I mean something that looks good and keeps you cool temperature wise. Apart from seeking refuge in the shade, along with wearing polos, button-up shirts and shorts, the right...

Many Australians are getting drones for the purpose of taking epic vacation photos and romantic wedding videos. But the most common scenario after they are back in their daily lives is they leave the drones in the garage to collect dust because they aren't creative enough to use them in the million possible ways they could. Imagine using your drone to monitor a huge farm of crops, or take pictures of a building's flaws, which you could water or fix as soon as you spot. Just how self-driving cars are becoming the future of the road, drones have the potential to be the future of a wide range of things. They could fundamentally change how goods and people are transported, create certain jobs and eliminate others, bring internet to people in remote areas, deliver medicine to people who need it and are kilometers away from hospitals, invent new sports, and the list goes on and on.

Fashion is an inevitable part of our everyday life. We buy a large number of clothes per year, thus spend a lot of money on creating our look and maintaining a certain style. It is such a powerful tool, as it is a way to say who you are without having to speak. However, the rise of fast fashion and its inhumane corporate practices have prompted the birth of a movement which fights against today's fashion industry and the unsustainability of its business model. In order words, now we have ethical clothing as an alternative to mass-produced clothing.
