Transform Your Apartment into an Escape Room

“Back in September, we shared a few suggestions to help you deal with boredom. One of those ideas was to visit a local escape room. If you don’t remember or have never heard about escape rooms until now, they’re basically team games where a group of people is locked in a room and are required to solve puzzles in order to escape. You’ve probably seen or played those games on your phone where you’re trying to get out of a room but have to find a key, solve riddles, etc… Same basic idea.”

Movie Adaptations Better than the Book

“Today, we’re getting ready for the upcoming summer season by sharing movies that are actually better than the books...We always hear the words “the book is always better,” but let’s see if we can reverse that.”

How to Overcome Your Fears

“Everyone fears something. It might be a spider scurrying across the kitchen floor. It could be the feeling of falling through the air, or someone jumping out from behind a closed door. Whatever they are, fears prove to be a challenge in our lives. Many people live as though governed by their fears as if what they fear defines who they are. Well, no longer does that have to be the case.”
