All he wants is to eat.

2. Your cat will never want to cuddle when you want to cuddle.

Consequently, you will be three seconds away from getting up when your cat decides to plop down in your lap. And then you're stuck with the debate "do I get up or do I sit here since he finally wants to love me?"

Madelene Whitfield

Anything is a plaything for your cat.

8. At night, your cat gets first dibs on what part of the bed he sleeps on

... And it will always be smack dab in the middle so you just adapt because he's your baby and you will do anything for him. Even if it means sleeping in a ball at the end of your own bed.

Spending Time Outdoors Has So Many Benefits, Physically And Mentally

The recent study was published in the International Journal of Environmental Health Research emphasizing how spending time outdoors could reduce emotional stress and increase a person's overall happiness.


Recently, I have come across a riveting article from Time stating that even spending as little as 20 minutes outside in a green area i.e. a park can instantly make you feel more cheerful. This article struck me a lot because we often rely on medications for effective treatment as opposed to anything natural. In my opinion, the best form of treatment lies in organic and pure substances. There can be nothing purer than spending time outdoors. In fact, we get most of our Vitamin D from the sun.

As a matter of fact, the recent study was published in the International Journal of Environmental Health Research emphasizing how spending time outdoors could reduce emotional stress and increase a person's overall happiness. This recent finding serves as a great reminder to people who prefer to stay indoors thoroughly engrossed in their own world. I agree that staying indoors has its own perks and sometimes you just need that "Me" time all by yourself. But, being outdoors radiates an abundance of positive energy that is highly encouraged to maintain the exuberant zest for life.

No matter how busy I'm with classes and work, I always jump at the prospect of going outside and spending that time feeling the scorching sunshine on my face. Sometimes, that's all we need! Along those lines, the article mentions how just being physically outside means a lot even if you are not doing anything. There is no need to always exercise while spending time outside in order to feel ecstatic about life.

Personally, I love the outdoors and it feels awesome learning the fact that there is a valid scientific reason as to why I start feeling happier than before. It is indeed remarkable how nature plays a huge role in regulating your moods and approach towards life. Hence, I would strongly encourage everyone to broaden their horizons more and plan on spending more time outside. Even if it is for 10 or 15 minutes. After all, being outdoors opens the door to a healthy lifestyle. Those few moments spent outside can make you feel more empowered than you ever were!
