How To Overcome Your Fear Of Dating

Sometimes, the prospect of dating can feel similar to the prospect of going to your work acquaintance’s birthday party - it seems like a great idea at first, but when the day arrives you’d rather chew your arm off than follow through. When I first started dating (London, 2009, pre Tinder), as in going on real dates (not watching movies with a guy from your class in high school), I found the concept terrifying; 'What if he doesn’t like me? What if I say something stupid? What if we have nothing to talk about?'. When we don’t know what to expect from a situation, it’s easier to mentally prepare for the worst case scenario than the best. I overcame my dating anxiety a long time ago, and since I started dating in London, where dating is a big part of the culture, I was eased into it by people who grew up knowing how to date in the same way we grew up knowing how to cross country ski. I'm not saying British people are better than Scandinavians (heaven knows they have their flaws), I'm just saying we have a thing or two to learn from them when it comes to dating. The same goes for the Americans, they know that a date is just a date and simply see it as an opportunity to get to know someone new and have a fun time.

8 Ways To Live A Little Healthier If You’re Not A Kale Eating Gym Bunny

It is pretty much impossible to access any social media platform without having an açaí bowl slammed in your face these days, and the pressure to identify as "super healthy" is at an all time high. Although "being healthy" means completely different things to everyone, we're kind of socially wired to believe that we need to fit into a certain box to be able to define ourselves as healthy. It's definitely a positive thing that people are becoming more aware of their health, but it also puts a large amount of pressure on everyone who would list "Netflix and carbs" above "health and wellness" when asked about their personal interests. The truth is, not everyone loves getting soaking wet in a spinning class, not everyone loves lifting weights or going to crossfit, and not everyone loves kale, green juices and açaí bowls, and that is perfectly fine. We are all different, which means we all need to find our own personalized way of taking care of our bodies and our minds, and ultimately: our own way to be healthy.

Why We Need To Stop Comparing Ourselves To Other Women And How To Do It

Although it's not among the finest traits of the female species, there is no denying that we have a tendency to compare ourselves to other women (hell, I'll be the first to admit that I'm guilty of it too); sometimes so much so that it affects the way that we feel about ourselves in terms of our self-esteem, perceived capabilities and even self-worth. We can get so wrapped up in other women's achievements, looks or ways of being, that we completely neglect our own strengths, accomplishments and victories. I'm not saying all women do this, I'm just saying that most women do this at some point in their lives, and that it ain't pretty. Rather than admiring, getting inspired by and learning from other women, the ugly truth is that women often get insecure, jealous and competitive.

The Best Spotify Playlists For Boosting Your Girl Boss Productivity Every Day Of The Week

I don't know about you, but every time I feel like my workday needs an inspiring soundtrack I do a quick browse on Spotify, pick a  playlist named something work-related, get annoyed after about three songs and end up turning it off.

The Scandinavian Guide To Non-Awkward Networking

Networking can be challenging, uncomfortable and just plain awkward; especially if you’re Scandinavian (sorry for generalizing, fellow Scandi ladies). It’s not like we’re all introverts (or like we all find networking challenging), it’s just that talking to strangers isn’t something that we’re taught to do in a natural way;  it’s not a big part of our culture. The concept of "networking" is typically associated with going to events filled with people you don’t know for the sole purpose of making new connections, which puts a lot of pressure on someone who isn’t incredibly comfortable with networking in the first place. Running in the opposite direction of any networking event can be tempting at times, but some networking is usually required for both professional and personal development.
