The best way? Stop playing. Not much can do that. Stop thinking negative thoughts and get on with the day. A big chunk of your life you’re either working for it or working on it. It’s almost like if you have a big project to do and you’re thinking about how you’re going to get it done and what’s going to get done, just stop thinking about it.

I’m excited because I’m a little bit quieter, but I’m looking forward to that.
We used to believe that we all deserved a home, some sort of decent place to live. Well, as a new study from the U.K. suggests, “many people just don’t want to get settled.”
In a new report from the U.K.’s independent research agency, Resolution Foundation, published earlier this week, researchers found that the percentage of people in the U.K. living in “affordable housing” — housing that the average household would need to earn less than 55 percent of the average income to afford — has declined from 61 percent in 1993 to 32 percent today. In a single-family household that cost less than £21,000 ($33,000) per year,
