Catch up on your movies

Wake up without an alarm
Waking up without an alarm sounds like a blissful idea, but it’s not always easy to achieve. Some people find it difficult to get out of bed in the morning without the help of an alarm clock. Others don’t need one because they naturally wake up early. No matter what your reasoning for waking up without an alarm, there are a few tips you can use to make it easier.
For example, try setting a wake-up time than your regular alarm clock time, so you have more time to relax and wind down before getting ready for the day. Or make use of alarms that gently awaken you instead of jarring you out of sleep. Whatever method works best for you, remember to take it slow and gradually increase the challenge as you become more comfortable waking up sans alarm clock.
Connect with old friends
Reconnecting with old friends can be liberating, reassuring, and fun. Whether you’re catching up on lost time or exploring new perspectives, these chats are always a good way to wind down after a long day. Here are six ways to connect with old friends:
- Organize a reunion party. This will get everyone together in one place, but it’ll also allow you to catch up on everything that’s happened since you last saw each other.
- Text each other regularly. Whether it’s just checking in on your day or sharing pics of your latest pet purchase, texting is the perfect way to keep in touch without speaking aloud.
- Catch up online. No matter where you are in the world, there’s always a chance you can reach out to your old friends online.
Look back on 2017
In 2017, the world saw many shocking and tragic events. Dozens of people were killed in clashes between protesters and police in France, Turkey experienced a coup attempt, and the United States elected Donald Trump as its new president. However,
amidst all the chaos, there were some positive developments. The global economy continued to recover from the financial crisis, China announced plans for a $4 trillion investment program, and UNESCO declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel.
