Close your eyes and imagine the last time you fell in love. Maybe you were walking next to your sweetheart in a park or staring into each other’s eyes over a latte.
Where did you feel the love? Perhaps you got “butterflies in your stomach” or you’re heart raced with excitement.
When a team of scientists in Finland asked people to map out where they felt different emotions on their bodies, it found that the results were surprisingly consistent, even across cultures.
People reported that happiness and love sparked activity across nearly the entire body, while depression had the opposite effect: It dampened feelings in the arms, legs and head. Danger and fear triggered strong sensations in the chest area, the volunteers said. And anger was one of the few emotions that activated the arms.
Hm. At first glance this looked like a series of Iron Man suits to me. Then I wanted a “mood suit” that reacts according to mood and *then* I realized that we have the whole IM3 Extremis storyline and also that Tony’s reactor used to “power up” and down based on his feelings.
Honestly you should start doing this when you start working.
You don’t have to be 40 to know valuable life skills tbh
They taught us this when we were 15, never forgot that. It’s also useful to make sure that the place you’re renting is affordable with your wages. You need to make at least $12/hr CAD to afford a place that charges $500/mo, which is considered as low as you can go in my area of the world. Roomies also help - get one and make ‘em pay halfers on everything.
Rule of thumb regarding rent is that it should not make up (much) more than a third of your monthly income. I know, that’s not always possible, but when looking for places it’s a good thing to keep in mind.
Also, it is possible to use credit cards, just allocate a part of your fun money to a prepaid credit card. Some of them even double as a savings account.
