An Introduction to Toxic Relationships

An Introduction to Toxic Relationships

Toxic Relationships 

Toxic relationships are something that most of us come across in our lives. They’re the people that drain our energy, our self-esteem and make us uncomfortable and insecure with ourselves. That includes everyone from friends, and family, to co-workers and intimate partners. If you have any sort of consistent interaction with someone, you can consider that a relationship.

Relationships usually don’t start out as toxic. More often than not, everything seems really normal for a while and things slowly progress to the point where all of a sudden you find yourself cowering in the corner as your mother, father, boyfriend, etc. is going on a yelling rampage and throwing things around the house. It’s what makes victims of abuse less likely to come forward because some times they don’t realize or don’t want to realize what’s going on.

How to Live Through Flu Season (Without Getting the Flu)

Flu season is upon us, and with all these different strains of the flu running around recently, it’s best to keep a more pro-active approach if you’re worried about getting sick. College is a cesspool of germs and creates a great environment to grow and infect. There’s hundreds of people squished together, worried more about where they’re going, and what they’re doing than whether the guy next to them is coughing or sniffling a bit more than usual.

Same for work environments. Offices are a great way to spread germs. Ever have a bug go around the office? Same concept. Warm environments with multiple hosts make germs very happy.

But what if you want to kick the flu and general sickness in the ass this season? Well, I’ve come up with some tips that I use (I’m prone to getting sick) to help you stay on top of your health.

**Disclaimer: Anything short of living in a bubble presents a risk of falling ill. Following these steps might decrease your chances but does not claim to prevent sickness overall.
