Don’t fool yourself, resting in front of the TV or computer will make it worse, but moving more will give you energy, speed up your metabolism (your body rhythm) and strengthen your heart. At first, it could be hard but it will get easier with time. Walking, pickle ball, basketball, racquetball, curling, golf, dancing, Tai […]
What Does “Low-Carb, Real-Food” Mean? Let me start by explaining a bit of terminology. A low-carbohydrate diet minimizes sugars and starches, replacing them with foods rich in protein and healthy fats. “Real food” means choosing foods that humans had access to throughout evolution. Processed, unnatural foods with artificial chemicals are avoided. LCRF is not a “diet.” It […]
Who sits and dreams of mouthwatering food all day long? I’m guilty as charged. It doesn’t matter the time or place I’m always thinking of the next meal to cook or to devour. And when you’re too lazy to take that trip to Trader Joe’s you pull out whatever you have in your freezer + […]
The game is rigged in sugar’s favour for three main reasons: We are born to like it, it is everywhere, and it is addictive
Since I know that mushroom is fungus, so I was very curious to find out what is the benefit of eating it. Question you might also ask: where do mushrooms come from? Quick, it grows on stuff when it’s moist. “Unfortunately, some mushroom are toxic. They can be found everywhere and could potentially grow in someone’s backyard,” […]
“This is the thing: When you hit 28 or 30, everything begins to divide. You can see very clearly two kinds of people. On one side, people who have used their 20s to learn and grow, to find … themselves and their dreams, people who know what works and what doesn’t, who have pushed through to become real live adults. Then there’s the other kind, who are hanging onto college, or high school even, with all their might. They’ve stayed in jobs they hate, because they’re too scared to get another one. They’ve stayed with men or women who are good but not great, because they don’t want to be lonely. … they mean to develop intimate friendships, they mean to stop drinking like life is one big frat party. But they don’t do those things, so they live in an extended adolescence, no closer to adulthood than when they graduated.
Don’t be like that. Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal.
Ask yourself some good questions like: “Am I proud of the life I’m living? What have I tried this month? … Do the people I’m spending time with give me life, or make me feel small? Is there any brokenness in my life that’s keeping me from moving forward?”
Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love, and with people who believe life is a grand adventure. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep traveling honestly along life’s path.”
