The Joy of City Life...

Balance — the art of doing everything

‘Cherish these moments! They will go by really fast!’

You may have said this a lot, but don’t stress — there is still time for your little one to grow up. And before they strike out into the big bad world, it is important to equip them with the skills that will help them navigate through life in a better way.

Juggling work, personal life, and a million other things is difficult. That’s why it is important to instill coping strategies in your child that can help them navigate the trials of adulthood.


Like a Good Neighbour

To some people, the word ‘neighbour’ brings to mind friendly conversation and invitations to chai on rainy evenings. Others may envision American sitcoms featuring apartments full of people who don’t lock their doors and friendly faces always ready to provide the perfect (unsolicited) advice just when you need it most. But in reality these occurrences aren’t as common as they were even a decade prior — these days, people can go years without even exchanging words with their neighbours. But does this mean that the act of ‘being neighbourly’ is a thing of the past? Not at all. The concept has simply adapted to the 21st century.

From DIY to small local businesses, there are a lot of options out there for refurbishing and upcycling. Need some inspiration? Read on for some easy modification ideas that you can employ to add a touch of personalisation and a pop of natural freshness to your home.


Problem Shared, Problem Halved

What’s the best way to get a room full of people to get very quiet, very quickly? Bring up climate change. In fact, it’s one of the most talked about hush-hush topics of recent years. Despite its popularity on blogs and political debates, a study by National Public Radio found that 85% of teachers don’t teach this topic in schools. Even among those who acknowledge the seriousness of the situation, there is a strong debate on how to combat it. Do we switch from plastic bags to cloth? Invest in reusable straws? All solutions seem to be geared towards what individuals can do to live more sustainably.


Make Your Own Happiness –Take a break from adulting and let the inner child choose your way

To children, the world of adults is one of wonder and limitless possibilities. They can drive cars, and explore the world, they can ride roller coasters and they can stay out past sundown!

It’s the age old conundrum about the grass being greener, but maybe we need to take a closer look at the grass!
