Last month, Canada was ranked the fourth-worst country out of 37 around the world for work-life balance in a report released by Expert Market, a British-based company that compares business products and products. The report, which analyzed OECD and World Bank data, based its rankings on average annual hours worked by parents, the number of paid leave days in each country and the total paid leave available to mothers and fathers.
Not that Canadian parents needed evidence: Everyone knows that e-mail and other pressures make it much harder to leave work behind at the office than it was for earlier generations. And, according to Statistics Canada, 58 per cent of couples with young children were employed outside the home in 2015, which squeezes personal time even more. Dr. Greer shares her tips in The Globe and Mail.
Tyra Banks is back in the dating game after her breakup from longtime partner Erik Asla. She was seen out on a date with a new man in West Hollywood. While no one knows yet if this new beau will turn into something serious, it appears that Tyra is ready to move forward in the search for love. Although she and Erik dated for several years and they share a child, their breakup was said to be drama-free. They are reportedly still friends and on good terms. Even so, it is not always easy to get back out there.

It is common for relationships to be contrived because most of us believe being single means something is missing from our lives. We obsessively look for what we consider a missing piece of ourselves.
This search influences our concepts of love to be built upon the foundation of fear. Our lack of self-worth blocks the natural organic flow of relating.
We can use the nature of gardening as a template to follow when it comes to cultivating relationships. When you plant a seed it takes time and gentle care to assist in the blossoming process.
Root based plants such as beets and carrots will take longer to sprout when compared to growing herbs. The natural unfolding of the process itself determines the differences. Anything that is contrived will not survive to reach its full potential.
It would be wise to view each potential relationship as a seed that needs to be nurtured. Some connections may blossom as fast as an herb; others may take longer to root like a beet or a carrot. The key is to relate without preconceived concepts of a proper time frame for development. The heart recognizes levels of magnetism, not concepts of time.
Adopting this concept allows the energy to flow more efficiently. It creates a path of least resistance for necessary development. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself or your potential partner. Relax and have fun within the process. If you don’t find a new partner, you could potentially gain a new friend. Let each experience naturally unfold and reveal its unique treasure.
Partnerships that develop organically create deeper bonds through authentic friendships. A genuine concern for each other leads to a comfort zone that ends up being the catalyst for orgasmic bliss. The level of safety shared between partners determines the depth of vulnerability. The more open you are the more pleasure you will experience during intimacy.
You can step outside of the comfort zone of using relationships as a crutch and embrace love however it chooses to present itself. Sometimes we push away the love we “need” because it didn’t match the love we “wanted.” These expectations block us from experiences that could open us up to a deeper more expansive love.
Here are a few tips on how to develop organic relationships.
1. Connect with others simply with the intention of relating
Throw your checklist out of the window and attempt to accept your potential partner without judgment. This will allow them to feel more comfortable with exposing deeper aspects of self. This way you get to see more beneath the societal mask for a clearer projection of compatibility.
2. Don’t get too caught up on the physical attraction
Great sex is important within a relationship but there needs to be a strong foundation built on respect, integrity, and trust. The framework of the physical bond will naturally form and be more firm in this case.
3. Release the pressure of needing something to develop.
Relax and use your social interactions as opportunities to expand through new experiences. If a strong bond develops this will be an exciting bonus to explore.
