Studies reveal that caregiving can lead to feelings of entrapment, obligation, social isolation, guilt, uncertainty, and loss of independence. Do any of these feelings sound familiar?

If you have experienced any of those emotions, this may be one of the most important messages you will ever receive in your life. It was for me and I hope it could be the same for you.

Caregiving, for me, happened gradually. It all started when my husband’s health declined. As time passes, a gradual process with his physical and mental changes has been fluctuating. Even though he is still fairly independent, he needs someone to monitor him with tasks such as banking, transport, shopping, and housing.

With the growing popularity of the digital world, the need to acquire digital knowledge and skills are essential to reach our full potential.

It’s fair to say that ‘digital skills’ is a very broad term that covers a wide range of knowledge and competencies.

Everybody’s definition will be different, however, digital skills are becoming near-universal requirements for jobs, business, and everyday life.

“Are You Seeking to Achieve a Meaningful Life?”

Money to enjoy keeps you sane as you continue working on your money goals.

I came from a family who was very cautious with money and that pattern continued in my married life. My husband prefers to live frugally rather than enjoying comfort, but after years of choosing to do without, I decided it was time to have some pleasures in life.

As I am his carer and in charge of all the money management at home, I wanted to act responsibly with our money, so I decided to attend a money management course.

So What Is The Most You Should Be Spending On Leisure Activities?
