It’s the beginning of 2017, don’t start it off being bored! Now’s a great time to find a new hobby and keep things interesting. Finding new things to do and new ways to plug in can be a big boost to your confidence and enjoyment.

New Year’s is just around the corner, and you’ve probably already been asked if you have any New Year resolutions. Resolutions don’t often work for long, yet we make them anyway. This year, shake up your resolution-making. Get away from the long, detailed list, and focus on a few more important and probably more impactful choices that can steer your course differently for the whole year! 1. Meditate All right, meditating sounds like a pretty vague resolution, and that’s mostly because it is. Meditation can mean different things to different people, but the important thing is to take some time during the day to be peaceful, think, and reflect. Your mind needs the recharge, and all those things that would normally be resolutions may fall better into place when you’re coming from a more peaceful mental perspective. 2. Find a..
Ah, holiday travel. On the one hand, it makes you feel warm and fuzzy, right?

There are steps you can take to make things a little easier, starting with your holiday shopping.

With Halloween fast approaching, Homer Simpson and the family are gearing up for the festivities. Of course, we are all looking forward to the Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror tales this year, a traditional rite of passage into the macabre.

It’s almost here: the wonderful, glorious fall. Days are starting to run shorter. Nights are longer, colder as you gaze at your favorite constellation shining brightly on your hemisphere.

It’s not a secret that the Earth is slowly changing; to be specific, degrading. We’ve heard all about it in the news: climate change, greenhouse gasses, and the gradual depletion of the natural resources we have forgotten to replenish over time. The sad stories of earthquakes, tsunamis, harsh storms and surprisingly strange weather occurrences are becoming more and more common. But there’s still hope. If we could change some of the ways we were accustomed to, we might get to live in a planet where there are less threats and more comfort, especially for the future generation. Karma Kiss celebrates Earth Day, and as we head on to a new season, we may perhaps take a handful from these reminders and contribute to the Earth’s well-being. We have listed 10 (taken from the many) smart ways to ease energy consumption..

Spring is here! In a few more days, we’ll be feeling the warm kiss of the sun. The sight of the white, frosty winter will soon disappear into puddles of water which children can enjoy splashing at.
