For most people, they approach dating as a serious endeavor that requires seriousness—after all this person could be your next long-term relationship. However, when you approach dating as something serious, it can turn a date into something boring and awkward. This why being playful on your date is so important.

Let’s say you made a comment or a joke that didn’t go over too well. Instead of letting that awkwardness take over the rest of the date, you can diffuse the situation by being playful. You may be wondering how to be playful without it looking forced, which is understandable. You don’t want your date to think you are being phony after all.

Here are some ways you can be playful and your date will find it endearing and even charming. Just keep in mind that being playful is subjective and your date may not even pick up on it, especially if they are too nervous.

  1. Tell Jokes to Lighten the Mood

If the mood is decidedly too serious, you can always try to lighten the mood by telling a joke or an amusing story. Even if you don’t land the punchline correctly, if you can poke fun at yourself a little, you will be sure to get a chuckle, at the very least a smile!

  1. Plan a Fun Date

If you want to ensure that you and your date will have a good time, plan something fun to do. You can sign up for a couples cooking class, go to an arcade, or even do something really creative like creating a scavenger hunt. When you participate in an activity where you can interact with one another and have fun, you’ll experience a boost in endorphins, which will help you have fun.

  1. Smile

Smiles, like yawning, are contagious. So when your date sees you smiling for no reason, they will start smiling too! This is especially useful if it looks like your date isn’t having a good time. Pair your smile with a genuine compliment and you’ll see their spirits lift considerably.

  1. Tease Them About Something

Now we aren’t saying that when you tease them, you should be malicious about it. However, tease them about something that isn’t offensive or hurtful. For example, you can joke around about the way they looked right as they walked through the door. You want to do it in a manner that they know you are clearly joking. If they don’t react well to the teasing, apologize and pull back. You don’t want to ruin the date because of a joke gone awry.

  1. Flirt

This should go without saying, especially if you are genuinely interested in dating this person. But, if you really want your date to go well, you can never go wrong with a bit of flirting. It can be as simple as saying their name seductively and maintaining eye contact or it can be more elaborate like taking the lead on the dance floor and pulling them close. Just be sure to be aware of their body language. If they look like they are uncomfortable, abort all attempts to flirt, as some people cannot let down their walls, no matter how hard you try to get them to have fun.

3 Unusual Ways to Improve the Value of your Home

Published

A house is one of the biggest things you’ll ever buy. It’s also one of the most significant investments in your portfolio. After all, when all else fails, you can rest assured that people will always need real-estate. However, it’s up to you to make sure that the house you purchase continues gaining value in the years to come. While there are many outside factors that can affect the value of a home, including changes in the ecosystem, and even the arrival of new amenities in your area, there are also things that you can do as a homeowner to make people want to pay more for your property. Since you’ve probably already thought about common options like replacing your kitchen or designing a new bathroom, we’re going to share some of the less conventional things you can do to transform your home.

Create a Fisherman’s Paradise

How to increase the value of your home

If you have a property that’s close to a body of water or even has its own riverside, then you’re going to be ahead of the curve already when it comes to gaining real-estate value. However, you can always take the desirability of your home another step further by making sure that you have fishing rights to offer your buyers. Let people know that buying your home comes with the option to spend their weekends fishing on the side of a beautiful river, and they’ll be biting your hands off for the chance to move in. Estimates suggest that this adds a value of about 15%.

Add a Residential Lift

Finally, if you’ve got a beautiful home to offer a couple looking for a great place to spend their retirement, then there’s one easy way to help them imagine their life in your property. Australian residential lifts show buyers that they’re going to be able to manage and maintain their independence when they get a little older, because they won’t have to worry about using the stairs. What’s more, residential lifts can also appeal to younger buyers too, because they give them a unique and modern selling point to share when the time comes to sell the property in the future. You’d be surprised at how affordable it can be to place a lift in your home these days, and the value that you get out of the investment can be astronomical. Just imagine how much easier it would be to carry laundry upstairs!

Give Your House a Name

This might sound like a strange way to upgrade the value of your home but bear with us. For most people, it might not matter whether they live at “The Oak”, or 35 Oak lane. However, research has shown that 88% of buyers would prefer to pay more for a home with a name. Perhaps it’s just because people feel like they’re getting a property with more personality this way. Just make sure that you have permission to name your house with your local council and choose a title that’s fitting for the property. It doesn’t make sense to call a city-based property “The Orchard” for instance.

No More Computer Eyestrain – Get Rid of your Headaches for Good

My eyes feel strained, I have a headache, and my brain just feels tired.

This is what’s known as computer eyestrain, and anyone who frequently uses a computer has probably had it. It’s no fun, and it keeps our work from reaching its full potential. It also keeps us from resting well at night by throwing off our circadian rhythm, especially if using a computer after daylight hours, in a poorly lit room.

This is caused by the blue light computer screens emit which is designed to mimic the sun.

Here are 5 sure fire ways to get rid of those darn computer eye strain headaches for good.

Computer eye strain headaches – get rid of them for good

1. The 20-20-20 rule

20-20-20 trick

Looking at something in the distance will give your eye muscles a break to reduce fatigue and headaches. This trick is intended to exercise your eyes and give them a break from your computer’s bright backlight.

2. Take frequent breaks

I know this might sound counter-productive, but I guarantee if you take more short breaks from your computer screen your eyes will thank you and you will see an immediate improvement in your productivity. Here’s some tips for making it happen:

  1. Drink more water. Not only will this keep you hydrated, it will also demand frequent trips for refills…and bathroom breaks.
  2. Set a reminder on your desktop. This goes for the 20-20-20 rule as well.
  3. Avoid the elevator. If you work 17 floors up, maybe not or you’ll be late for work. However, if you’re on the second or third floor, or you need to run downstairs for something, this extra bit of exercise will improve your circulation and engage your muscles, giving you an extra boost of energy, and a mental boost as well!

3. Increase your font size

When you can, increase your font size. If the text is too small, you’ll squint, which is the number one culprit of eye fatigue and headaches.

4. Try computer eyestrain glasses

Computer reading glasses are specially made to help reduce eyestrain. They have an anti-reflective coating to help reduce glare and a tint that helps increase contrast for easier viewing. For those of us who already wear glasses, prescription computer glasses are also available

5. Give your eyes a break

It can be tempting to binge on netflix as soon as you get home from work, but try giving your eyes a break from all the blue light that’s causing them grief. Staring at a screen all day not only weakens your vision, but it could lead to worse problems, like computer vision syndrome.
