How to Handle Difficult People in Your Life

Have you ever experienced those moments when you meet someone who is impossible to deal with? You know, the kind who aren’t cooperative, who refuse to see things from another perspective other than theirs or who are inconsiderate. They come in so many forms that are unbearable. No matter how nice you try to be with them, it’s so frustrating trying to get along with them.

I’ve encountered a lot of difficult people in my life. At first I tried to avoid them as much as I could but hiding from them didn’t make them go away. Instead I devised new methods to handle difficult people. Here are some tips you’ll find helpful.

 

  1. Rise above their behaviour

If you’ve met a difficult person, chances are that you have tried to reason with them. But in the end, you realize that their behaviour beats all reason. Don’t react to their irrational behaviour with irritation, frustration or aggression. It’s not worth it and it only makes the situation worse.

What you should do is to not partake in their irrational behaviour. Don’t react to it, rationalize it or beat them at their game. And no matter how annoying their behaviour is don’t snap back. Just let them be.

 

  1. Set boundaries with everyone especially difficult people

Difficult people try to assert themselves on others for some strange reason. If you give in, believe me they will continue to with the crazy behaviour.  The way to deal with this is to set healthy boundaries between you and that person.

When they try to assert themselves on you, you have to draw the line and tell them that they can’t treat you that way, and then move on. Sometimes you just have to put your foot down otherwise their irritable behaviour is going to continue.

  1. See through their drama

Difficult people don’t act difficult just because they decided to. There’s some underlying reason behind their behaviour. Sadly, difficult people don’t know how to communicate what they want to others. So they create drama, because that’s the only way they know how to communicate with others.

When you look at the situation in this light, it makes you feel compassion towards them. So before you react badly, make sure you pause for a few minutes to think about this. As you show compassion and show them that there is a better way they can communicate their wants clearly, then they would change.

 

  1. Don’t take it personally

Facing difficult people can make you feel horrible with yourself, lower your self-esteem and feel guilty for being resentful towards them. All this affects your mood and attitude to others. Their behaviour is not directed at making you feel bad but rather they don’t know any other way to communicate with others.

For the sake of your peace of mind, don’t take what they do personally. Focus on achieving your goals and living your amazing life. When you allow their annoying behaviour to get to your nerves, it distorts your day and makes your relationship with others go sour.

How to Keep the Kids Safe in the Sun

Kids are the most vulnerable to the effects of the sun. They are prone to the sun and heat related illnesses. Sunny days are here and as parents it’s crucial that we protect our kids from the sun.

Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun can lead to illnesses like skin cancer and melanoma or even a horrible sun burn.  The risks of prolonged sun exposure to your kids can be drastically reduced when you take proper safety measures. Here are 4 you can get started with.

 

  1. Apply sunscreen frequently

On sunny days, it is very important that you carry a bottle of sunscreen with you at all times. Sunscreens provide protection from the harmful effects of the sun. It is advisable to go for a sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher with broad-spectrum protection.

Don’t just stop at applying sunscreen before your child goes outside. Make sure you apply sunscreen on your child’s body often at least every 2-3 hours. That way your child has all round protection.

Be generous with the sunscreen on the parts of your child’s body that is most exposed to the sun, like the back of the neck, arms, feet and even their lips as they can also be prone to sunburn.

 

  1. Limit their time in the sun

Damage from the sun is at its peak between 10am and 4 pm as that is the hottest time of the day. As much as possible, try to limit your kids’ outdoor time within the hours of 10am and 4 pm. Get creative with activities that your child can do indoors during those hours when the sun is at its hottest. If your child goes out during those times, make sure your child takes frequent breaks from the sun or plays in the shade. And, of course, don’t forget the sunscreen.

 

  1. Get them covered up

Another way you can keep your child safe from the sun aside from applying sunscreen is making sure they are covered up. Wide brimmed hats can help shield their face from the rays of the sun and sunglasses keep the sun from harming their eyes.

The kind of clothing you give them to wear is also important to ensure your child’s safety from the sun. Opt for fabrics that are thin, breathable and able to cover the areas of their body that get the most exposure to the sun.

  1. Be a good example

What better way to teach your kids the importance of staying safe in the sun than by setting a good example for them. Kids learn faster when they see someone showing the way. If you are consistent with applying sunscreen on your body, hanging out in the shade whenever you’re outside or wearing a hat and a pair of sunglasses, your kids will definitely follow your lead. Don’t skip the safety measures no matter what. Always remember that your little ones are watching and learning from you.

Magic Opaque Tights That Don’t Rip

I don’t know about you, but I am forever buying new tights and leggings. It is like an endless shopping game for me. My opaque tights usually rip after a few wears. While my leggings rip after some weeks of wearing them regularly, which is a pain. Sometimes I get to only wear my tights once before it rips. Can you imagine how annoying that is? To spend a few pounds on a piece you only get to wear once.

In my pursuit of some quality opaque tights, I came across this Magic 50 Opaque Tights by Solidea. I liked the description of the tights on their website. It sounded like what I needed, so I knew I had to give it a try. Black tights are always a necessity for me even in the spring/summer months. I like to have a few around just incase I need to wear them on a chilly day. You can never really know how the day is going go weather wise with our precious British Weather.

I really like this  Magic 50 Opaque Tights by Solidea. It is so amazing. It is definitely not your usual sort of tights. I realised that as soon as I unboxed it. It has a very firm texture that allows it hug the legs and keeping it looking toned. The patented wave fabric in the panty helps get rid excess fluids and eliminates cellulite. It also ensures all day freshness.

The opaque tights comes in 5 sizes – small, medium, medium large, large and extra-large. I am wearing a medium. It also comes in 3 colours, Fumo, Nero and Moka. Mine is in Nero.

I don’t see this opaque tights ripping. It looks like a piece that would be around for a long time and I am sure it will be. Solidea do make great products. I still have the Karen 70 Lace Knee-High Socks by Solidea I got years ago, and it is still as good as it was on the first day.
