Since creation human beings have been given a whole set of emotions and feelings. Disregarding whether the feeling is bad or good has its own reason and design. In an article published by Barbara L. Fredrickson titled “The Role of Positive Emotions in Positive Psychology. The Broaden-and-Build Theory of Positive Emotions”, there is a report on detailed research into the roles and effects of positive emotions. However, setting aside the positive feelings which make us more spiritually alive, it is important note that such negative feelings as fear, panic, pain, etc. have their functions as well. One of the most basic imperatives they serve is protection and the instinct for self-preservation. However, it is no less evident that if an individual becomes overly obsessed by one of those negative emotions, the flow of life, as well as all vital activities, may be in jeopardy.
One of my favourite smells, since childhood, has been the smell of a new book. Since I was lucky enough to be encouraged into reading at an early age, a visit to the book shop or even to the library was an event.
Albert Einstein among many other statements he made, famously said “the more knowledge the less ego, the less knowledge the more ego”.
It is always easier to understand a conflict when two parties are involved, isn’t it? Two different people can disagree, fighting over the same objective, sharing opposite values, or wishing to achieve polar opposite goals. But how can we explain a situation in which the disagreement is inside someone’s head? That’s exactly what experts call an intrapersonal conflict. We have already analysed its motivation and role types. This time we’ll find out what this ‘condition’ is and how simply it can influence our behaviour.
The word itself is amusing and over the last few years has found its way into the Oxford dictionary. A Selfie is defined as “ A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media.”

Think about it, using emojis or emoticons in everyday written conversation has become a habit of ours, hasn’t it? If you just check your phone you will find that most if not all of your messages are full of emojis! Some messages even consist entirely of emojis! Emoticons are becoming so influential in everyday conversation that they have become a serious topic among linguists. It seems as if we’re traveling back in history, or maybe making a full circle from pictograms to hieroglyphs to phonemic lettering and now slowly but surely back to pictograms.
Anyone who has subscribed to mailing lists in recent years will have received an avalanche of emails concerning privacy policies and data handling. Some people might mistake this for concern, or a reflection of corporations’ guilty consciences. In reality, firms are scrambling to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force on Friday May 25. Although the GDPR is theoretically supposed to grant consumers more power and control over their data, few people have a clear understanding of what it actually is and what it means for them. The regulation has been criticised for being too complex, even by corporate law standards. Here Youth Time will try to bring some clarity to a confusing and complex issue.
History is full of "ifs". What if the Archduke Franz Ferdinand had not been assassinated, what if Hitler had not come to power... And with just a slight shift in direction for Han van Meegeren, his name would have probably fallen into oblivion.
Yoga as a phenomenon and a trend gained popularity in the early 20th century, when its positive effects on the state of the human organism, in terms of both physical and emotional/psychosocial health, were practically and theoretically determined. Modern medicine today mentions in all studies that natural and alternative treatments in a huge percentage of cases can have very noticeable effects, both respecting the prevention and the treatment of various diseases. Medical yoga is extremely appreciated in this context among doctors, especially as it helps to develop a positive state in the individual not only by treating the disease but also by eliminating psycho-emotional blockages that are often the main causes of a disease.
