Welcome to the Weekly Reads, where I highlight articles that I found on the web and that are focused on career advice, lifestyle, beauty or anything I think would round up as useful for the young, modern, working woman. So get yourself comfortable, pour a cup of coffee and enjoy this week’s reads!
I am back from my holiday and today has been my first day ar work. I cannot complain at all – yet – and am looking forward to the next few months as I have a few exciting things coming up, including the start of my Master’s degree. On another note, my Cohorted box, that I briefly spoke about here, hasn’t arrived yet as somehow they messed up my home address. I am getting another one sent so fingers crossed that this one will arrive safe and sound and not next month!
Self awareness is a rare gift. By now, you have probably noticed that not all those around you are as self-aware as you wished, and sometimes that can turn into nightmare; especially when it’s your coworkers the ones that are behaving in an annoying manner. It’s on you to be smart and clear about addressing that without stepping the line.
You have to work for it. I really love this article and this idea that you have to work to find your passion. Very few people will just suddenly get hit by their passion while sipping on tea in bed, on a Sunday; most – if not all people – will actually have to be interested first, curious to try something and dedicated to put time and effort into cultivating that interest eventually converted in passion.
You don’t “find your calling,” you fight for it.

Staying healthy during the cold weather. The cold weather is here. My secret for staying healthy during the cold months is drinking hot water with fresh ginger, fresh turmeric and the juice of half a lemon every morning. Turmeric is a known, powerful anti-inflammatory, high in antioxidants that supports the immune system in fighting infection and also has pain relieving properties. Ginger is generally used for indigestion, nausea, and to keep colds, flu, and coughing at bay. I have been drinking this pretty much every single day during last year’s winter and spring and I did not get a single cold.
