Navigating the Dating World in 2019

Finding a partner in life is something that nearly everyone yearns for at one time or another. In order to eventually find that partner, you have to date. However, dating isn’t always easy in the modern day. In fact, the stats show that more than half of all young peoplein the USA don’t have a partner. While some may not want one, others do and just simply haven’t had any luck or don’t want to put in the effort.

It isn’t as simple as it once was. Also, dating or trying to meet people as an adult is even more challenging than when you were in college or high school. People are busier than ever and with so many things seemingly demanding our attention, it can be harder than ever to find the time. With that in mind, this article is going to look at a couple of tips and hints about dating in 2019 and beyond.

Get Online

Just as it has changed nearly every part of our lives, technology has had a huge impact on dating as we know it. We use our phones to text people, send video messages, set up dates, flirt, and so much more. In fact, some stats show that around 40% of couples in the USA first meet online. As a result, getting online can help you get more dates than traditional methods.

Many of these people are using apps to meet each other as they have hundreds of thousands of downloads. If these apps aren’t your forte, there are plenty of online dating sites. There are dating sites based on religion, on life success, and heck, there is even a milf dating site. The point is, using online dating gives you the best chance at meeting someone you wouldn’t have met otherwise.

Work on Yourself

Before you can love someone else, you need to love yourself. It may sound incredibly cliche, but it is true. Too many times people will wait around for the perfect person to come into their lives and don’t want to put in any effort on their end. Unfortunately, that hardly ever works. Instead, you need to work on loving yourself as well as making yourself a more attractive option.

Instead of complaining you can’t get a date, work on the areas of your life that you believe are holding you back. Start hitting the gym, work on getting better at your hobbies, or even go to therapy if you feel it will help you. The sooner you can be happy and proud of who you are, the sooner others will take notice as well. Be the best version of yourself that you can be, and self-confidence will follow.

Be Open and Honest

Unfortunately, most people are not very open. We have the things we like to do, eat, and see, and really aren’t interested in anything else. If you aren’t willing to put yourself out there and try new things, you will find it more difficult to meet new people. Now, this doesn’t mean you need to go out to a huge party or join a rock-climbing club, but even simply signing up for online dating or going to an event can be a step in the right direction.

In addition to being open, it is important to always be honest. The last thing you want to do is lead anyone on or let them get the wrong idea. So while it is good to be open and try new things, always be honest about your feelings, your wants, and your boundaries.

We hope that this blog post will help you learn some helpful tips to navigate the world of dating in 2019 and beyond.

Lacking Self-Discipline?

5 Ways To Develop It And Reach Your Goals

Americans are known to overeat, abuse credit cards, marinate for hours in social media, and break New Year’s resolutions before the end of January. Self-discipline doesn’t seem to be a national strength.

And achieving self-discipline – and the success that can come with it – may never have been harder than it is in this instant-gratification age, says Dr. Rob Carter III.

“Self-discipline is an undervalued trait in a modern society that wants everything now,” says Carter, co-author with his wife, Dr. Kirti Salwe Carter, of The Morning Mind: Use Your Brain to Master Your Day and Supercharge Your Life (www.themorningmind.com). “Self-discipline is the ability to motivate and coordinate our efforts to improve our quality of life, but unfortunately most people are not taught it.

“It is, however, a skill that everyone can learn. Self-discipline is the skill that will allow you to reach any goal you set.”

Carter offers five ways to develop self-discipline:

Be aware of your resistance. Resistance, Carter says, is the biggest obstacle to developing self-discipline, and it often comes in the form of discouraging internal self-talk such as, “I can’t do it” or “Why should I have to change?” “The next time you embark on a new project that causes resistance,” Carter says, “fight it by asserting or writing down your intended goal and the benefits it will bring.”

Plan for every outcome. Plans go awry when people let excuses get in the way. “An example is having a goal of running in the morning for 30 minutes, but you have bailouts such as it’s raining, cold, or you don’t feel like it,” Carter says. “Developing self-discipline is recognizing and planning for these self-created obstacles and actively choosing to work through them. So when you set a goal to achieve, have chart in place listing “Even ifs.” List the potential obstacles to achieving your goal and counter each one with a promise to yourself that you’ll achieve your goal even if these challenges arise.”

Prepare to give something up in order to gain. Carter suggests compiling a list of the pros and cons of sacrificing for a certain goal. “To reach your goal, Carter says, “you will more than likely have to impose certain limitations on yourself in order to gain something. These limitations could be less free time, socializing, money or television. The upside is that seeing the rewards of the sacrifice on the pros list will keep you motivated and disciplined.”

Reward yourself with self-compensation. “Rewards are an incredibly powerful tool for motivating yourself to reach your goals,” Carter says. “Consider them the carrot on the stick. Have a reward in place for when you achieve a goal or part of a goal, and make sure it’s appropriate.”

Break your goal down into manageable steps. “If you break your goal down into bite-sized steps,” Carter says, “you’re much more likely to stay disciplined enough to complete every sub-goal. Each step accomplished gives you an encouraging boost. Consider using SMART goals — specific, measurable, attractive, realistic, timed. This makes the goal more definitive and puts the steps in tangible action.”

“Self-discipline includes structured planning, organization, delayed gratification, and the willingness to step outside your comfort zone,” Carter says. “These things can appear scary, but don’t worry, you’re not alone. And once you take the first step, you have ventured onto a beautiful path that offers many rewards.”

MIB: INTERNATIONAL F/ LEXUS RC F

Men in Black: International x Lexus

By Krishan Narsinghani × Vaughn Lowery

Lexus USA introduced a sexy new fleet of luxury vehicles (the 2020 RCF and RX F Sport) in Sony Pictures’ latest release, Men in Black: International, and 360 Magazine had the opportunity to attend the world screening in Los Angeles. This classic rebirth featured actors Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth whizzing across the universe to fight off the villainous Hive. Subsequently, the duo are facing internal threats of their organization at the same time. MIB is action-packed, humorous and undoubtedly a family favorite – it sparkles!

After this film, you’ll definitely want to cop the heavily stylish RCF – not just for performance and technology – but because it’s bewitching. If looks could kill – WE DEAD!

Seiko USA, Lorem Ipsum, stevie award, 360 MAGAZINE

Lorem Ipsum Receives Gold Stevie® Award for Seiko USA Campaign

Multi-disciplinary experiential design firm, Lorem Ipsum is pleased to announce that its work for Seiko USA has received a Gold Stevie® Award from the American Business Awards® in the Website category under “Consumer Products-Non-Durables.”

The award was presented on Tuesday, June 11 during the 17th Annual American Business Awards banquet in New York City. The American Business Awards feature a wide selection of categories to recognize the achievements of creative professionals working in web development, corporate communications, video production, app development, investor relations and live events.

Lorem Ipsum took on the challenge of taking Japanese manufacturer of watches, Seiko USA’s website which was absent of sales or software integration capabilities, and built a sales-drivensite using Shopify’s platform. As storytellers in a digital world, Lorem Ipsum’s goal in both the user experience and overall design was to ensure the product remained the ultimate focus while keeping with the brand’s aesthetic and transforming Seiko enthusiasts into paying customers. Their approach not only provided significant technical enhancements but also told the brand story with new and improved user experiences across all devices. Lorem Ipsum’s team of programmers created the Seiko Sync app, expanding the native Shopify features to create aunique consumer experience. For example, customizable filters allow users the option to searchfor products by technology, dial color, size and various other important consumer factors.

Their developers also created custom software, such as Shop Social, that enables enhanced capabilities beyond Shopify’s existing offerings, including a unique Instagram plug-in that integrated directly with the brand’s channel allowing for a continuous and curated feed of imagery.

By moving away from traditional marketing approaches and instead, utilizing social media and strategic retargeting tactics, Lorem Ipsum was able to drive traffic to Seiko’s U.S. page and increase sell-through. The customer management process was also customized while working closely with Seiko’s IT and fulfillment teams to create a cohesive system of applications and notifications to give Seikobetter sales and product functionality insights; ultimately, allowing Seiko to better understand end-users’ likes and dislikes in order to create content accordingly to engage users and improvethe overall purchase process.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our contribution,” says Abigail Honor, Partner at Lorem Ipsum. “Working with Seiko to launch their first U.S. e-commerce storefront was a big responsibility and our multi-disciplinary team rose to the challenge. Our focus was to create a straightforward user experience in which we created branded content, worked with influencerson unique campaigns and implemented strategic advertising to make the Seiko websitecompetitive. We are proud not only of the seamless launch but of the constant evolution of thesite throughout the year.”

Lorem Ipsum provided the creative assets fromvideo to lifestyle photography for all of Seiko’s campaigns throughout the year, most notably for their national campaigns-Prospex StreetSeries and Coutura Car, and designed customized landing pages, e-mail campaigns, and third-party banners that provided a visual narrative of product and lifestyle images.The team’s creative and marketing strategies led to the fastest sellout of a single Seiko product in company history with the launch of the cult classic Alpinist timepiece. “The nominations submitted to the 2019 American Business Awards were outstanding,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “They illustrate the continued vibrancy of innovation and high level of achievement across the American economic landscape.” More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and industries were submitted for consideration in a wide range of categories. More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

LifeScale: How to Live a More Creative, Productive, and Happy Life

The book is a solution to the crisis for everyone – men, women, parents, and children — dealing with digital distraction which aims to solve the effects of digital addiction by helping us rebuild the strength to focus, learn and grow through each chapter. One of the original oracles of Silicon Valley, Brian is a world-renowned keynote speaker and has consulted for Fortune 500 companies, helped launch hundreds of start-ups and advised celebrity entrepreneurs from Shaquille O’Neal to Ashton Kutcher to Oprah!

Did you know…

The constant stimulation of tech is rewiring our brains, altering body chemistry and affecting our productivity, health, and wellness?

  • Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and other popular apps/games were deliberately designed to change our behaviors (it’s called persuasive design).
  • On average it takes 23 minutes to regain focus every time you pull away from a project to check your phone or twitter feed.
  • 36% of Millennials and Gen Z employees say they spend two hours or more checking their smartphones for personal activities during the workday.
  • Digital distractions cost the U.S. economy $997 billion a year in lost productivity.
  • Multitasking, the way most Americans “get things done,” actually reduces productivity by 40% and lowers IQ scores.
  • Social Media is damaging our teens. The more time they spend on social media, the more likely they are to be depressed, suffer low self-esteem and compare themselves negatively to their peers. 50+% prefer texting to talking!

This list goes on…

Today, most people are living with persistent distraction because it’s just a fact of life now. But, like cigarettes, which were originally endorsed by doctors, many of the devices and social networks we use were designed to be addictive. It’s time for a holistic approach to putting digital distractions in their place.

More than an Author, A Digital Distraction Survivor…

Brian is a bit of a Silicon Valley legend who helped advise more than 1,000 startups as well as researching technology’s evolving effects on markets and behaviors. He’s not coming at this topic as an expert in self-help. He’s an admitted victim who confronted his own loss of focus and productivity before writing this book.

In LifeScale, Brian shares:

  • The straight dope on how the tech industry got us addicted and keeps us addicted to Facebook, gaming and more.
  • His own challenges with distraction and ineffective multitasking and explores his journey to find short-term hacks and then long-term solutions to solve this problem.
  • Maps out a plan all of us can use to regain focus and creativity while learning to use Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, emails and all those apps on our smartphones as tools that enhance our lives instead of dominating them.

Panel for Mental Health re: Social Media

On April 30th, Facebook announced that it will be testing hiding likes on Instagram. Some will be angered by the proposed change but this could be great news for the wellness community, in light of the ongoing studies that have found Instagram to be the most detrimental social networking app for young people’s mental health.

“It’s interesting to see Instagram ranking as the worst for mental health and wellbeing.  The platform is very image focused and it appears that it may be driving feelings of inadequacy and anxiety for young people,” said Shirley Cramer, chief executive of the Royal Society for Public Health.

The Economist reported that while social media gave users extra scope for self-expression and community-building; it also exacerbated anxiety and depression, deprived them of sleep, exposed them to bullying and created worries about their body image and “FOMO” (“fear of missing out”). Studies show that these problems tend to be particularly severe among frequent users and young adults.

In fact, studies have shown an increase in major depressive episodes from 8.7% in 2005 to 11.3% in 2014 in adolescents and from 8.8% to 9.6% in young adults. The increase was larger and statistically significant in the age range of 12 to 20 years, arguably social media’s key demographic.

So the question becomes:What are some tools we could develop to help mitigate the negative effects of social media?

For this year’s Mental Health Awareness Month #GroupDyynamics presents: @YOU Liked Yourself, a two-hour event that corrals peers of the creative industry and successful leaders in the wellness fields to discuss the issues that impact our global community.

Would love for you to stop by if you’re available! Happy to arrange a time for you to speak with any one of our panelists!

What began as a creative outlet quickly gained an excitable young following, with the comedian’s short one-man character sketches and pop culture parodies embraced as a welcome antidote to the relentless news cycle. “Laughing has always been my way of feeling a little better about things,” he adds. As straight men continue to dominate the international comedy scene, Skinner offers a welcome alternative — and young people are responding in large numbers. With over 477,000 followers on Instagram and more than 110,000 subscribers on YouTube, the multi-talented actor is paving his own career path.

For the adults, plenty of adventures end in beer, wine, or whiskey.

For the Mom Who’s Up for an Adventure

Come to the Tordrillo Mountain Lodge for the blue skies of Alaskan summer and stay for the thrill of adventure in the unparalleled mountain scenery of the Tordrillo Range. The volcanic peaks are known for stable weather conditions, creating ideal opportunities for Alaskan heli skiing–in June, ski in your t-shirt through carvable corn snow and 75-degree weather. Other sporty summer pursuits include world-class fishing, mountain biking on glaciers, whitewater rafting, glacier and alpine hiking, rock and ice climbing, canoeing, water skiing, and more.

Could Your Partner Be Cheating On You?

If you are worried that your partner may be cheating on you, you are not alone. There are many other people who harbor concerns about what their partners may be up to. Sometimes, these feelings are nothing more than paranoia, whereas in other cases they turn out to be right. So, how can you find out whether your partner may be cheating?

Well, asking your partner outright could be a mistake. First, they may deny it and leave you back at square one. Second, if they are not cheating on you, it could destroy any trust in the relationship. So, before you start making any accusations, it is worth looking at signs that may indicate they are cheating. We will look at some of the main signs in this article.

What Are the Main Signs?

There are various different signs that may indicate your partner is cheating, so it is well worth familiarizing yourself with them. One sign to look out for is an increase in calls being received by your partner, and how they act when these calls come in. If you have noticed they are getting a lot more calls than usual and they act cagey when these calls come in, there may be a cause to worry. You can go online and find tools that enable you to carry out all sorts of searches these days from criminal records check and background checks to reverse phone number checks. You can use the latter to find out who has been calling.

Another thing to look at is whether your partner’s behavior has changed noticeably and suddenly. This could include a variety of changes. For instance, you may find that your partner goes out far more than before. You may have noticed a difference or improvement in their appearance. You may even have found that they don’t appear to want closeness and intimacy any longer. Plus, there is the old classic – working late at the office on a regular basis. It is well worth checking for any changes in behaviors and habits to get a better idea of what may be going on.

Social media is another factor you have to look at if you are concerned your partner may be cheating. Often, people will turn to private messaging on their social media accounts to get in touch with the person they are cheating with. Of course, you probably won’t be able to see the messages. However, you can see if your partner has started using social media more and if they act suspiciously, such as keeping their device out of your line of sight while on social media sites.

Better to Know the Truth

Of course, nobody wants to find out that their partner has been cheating. However, it is better to know the truth and move forward than it is to be stuck wondering what is going on. This is why you should look out for signs that your partner may be cheating if you have any suspicions. Once you know the truth, then you can then decide on the next step you want to take.
