There’s no doubt as kids get older parents start dreaming of the day they officially become adults and leave the nest, but a new report finds that even if they leave, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be completely independent.
Turns out, in this day and age, a lot of folks are still mooching off their parents. In fact, one in three Americans are relying on getting an inheritance from their parents, with 36% of Gen X-ers, 32% of Millennials and 20% of baby boomers dependent on that family fortune. And it gets even worse for the younger generation, with 63% of Gen Z (those ages 18 to 22), counting on family money, even though 87% describe their financial decisions as “do it myself.”
Now those who are looking to make money on their own aren’t above investing their funds, even though 34% would describe the stock market as “volatile.” Overall, 57% of folks say they’ve made money in the stock market, with those in Gen X (67%) and older (68%) making the most financial gains in the market.

Summer is unofficially here and one of the best parts of the season is eating outdoors. But all that fresh air and food can bring flies and these pests can ruin your al fresco dining, so here’s how to minimize flies at your next BBQ or picnic.
- Eliminate the breeding grounds - “Flies breed in decaying fruit and veggies, compost and manure,” explains Dr. Gabrielle Francis, a naturopathic doctor. So keep your outdoor trash cans far from your patio and keep them closed. And if you have a vegetable garden, pick the ripe ones and set up your eating area farther from the garden.
- Set up some fans - Wind poses a problem for flies, they just don’t have skills to fly well in a draft, so put out some fans and let the breeze cool you while keeping flies at bay.
- Make an herbal centerpiece - Some herbs with essential oils repel flies naturally, plus they look pretty in a jar. Fill a vase with a mix of basil, lavender, lemongrass, rosemary, or mint for a fragrant fly-repellent.
- Wear natural bug repellents - Those same essential oils will keep bugs off you, so look for a natural product containing lavender, rosemary, mint, and basil.
- Hide the drinks - Flies like sugary and yeasty things, so beer, wine, and soda draw them in. But using cups with lids and wiping up spills right away can help keep them away.

Ever felt totally out of place at the gym? Most of us have at some point, when we started working out at a new gym, or took a new class, or were a total newbie to exercise. But you don’t have to feel awkward at the gym, you just need to focus on your health and fitness and forget about everyone else. This is how to feel more comfortable at the gym, according to personal trainers.
- Remember why you’re going to the gym in the first place - Focus on the reason you went to the gym when you start feeling awkward there. It could be to train for a marathon, or just to workout some pent-up energy after work, but remember that lots of people are there for the same goal and no one’s there to judge you, you’ll feel better.
- Take the gym tour - When you join a new gym, take that tour they offer you so you learn about the machines and how everything works before you start exercising there.
- Remember you can observe before trying anything - Not sure what hot Pilates is all about? Watch a class before you participate and you’ll know what you’re getting into and if it’s for you.
- Having a gym buddy makes it easier - Like a lot of things in life, going to the gym is better when you do it with a friend. Being there with a buddy takes your mind off how you look while exercising and lets you focus on what you’re doing. Plus, the laughing you do with a pal always helps.
- Start with something familiar - Spend your first 10 or 20 minutes at the gym doing something you’re familiar with, like running on the treadmill, then when you’re settled in, move on to try something new.
- Feel the fear and do it anyway - Most of us feel nervous starting a new exercise or joining a new gym, accept it and just work through it. And remember, you got this.
