Spoiler: It has nothing to do with bath bombs.

You just put your car in park. It’s been the usual 8 hours in the office but today feels different. You feel drained, under appreciated and hopeless. You turn to the right and you see your toddler at the window, waving in excitement because you’ve arrived!

Here, you’re faced with a decision. Do you walk into your home with the dark energy that has clung itself to your work attire like piano bar cigarette smoke? Or do you shake it off and positively influence the room you’re about to walk into. Will you meet your family with patience and enthusiasm?


…while still appealing to an audience.

Writing down your thoughts is an easy task but making them appealing to the readers is difficult.

When you write an article, you sit on chair of an expert. People read your thoughts as if you have a thorough knowledge of the topic you are dealing within your article. So writing an article puts whole lot of responsibility on your shoulders, the responsibility of being true and genuine.

If you want to have panache in your writing, there are certain points that you should keep in mind.

In this day and age, competition is fierce when it comes to article…


Wait what was the title again?

A quick guide to improving your life

“You can ask the Universe for it.” — Jim Carrey

Some years ago, my life was in shambles.

I don’t know if you have ever felt this way, but I knew there was something out there — a method to improve my situation. I had seen, and read, how regular people designed their lives based around specific goals.

One example of this is a video that you can find online, of actor Jim Carrey and how he wrote himself his first multi-million dollar check.

How were these people able to live life on their terms? …


Two hours later, I didn’t know what hit me.

If you have a pulse, chances are you’ve read an article or heard someone on a podcast talk about the highly-effective productivity hack — waking up a couple of hours before your usual wake up time.

Most of us, myself included, give ourselves just enough time for the bare essentials, like getting dressed and brushing our teeth before storming out the door head-first into our rush-hour commutes.

Adding an hour or two to my day, when my brain is fresh, seemed very appealing to me — but I had to be real with myself. …


A collection of one-liners that matter.

If you aren’t familiar with proverbs, they are nuggets of wordplay, jam-packed with generational wisdom. They are created and passed down through the ages. The ones that continuously ring true, survive.

In Greek, proverbs are called Παροιμίες (Parimies). I want to equip you with a few of these ancient quotes — to have on your quests into the new year.

As are the morals of Aesop’s Fables, these bite-sized lessons are relevant and useful in any day and age.

Tip: Copy the Greek lines below into Google Translate to hear the pronunciation. (Look ma, I wrote an interactive article!)

1. Πάν Μέτρον Άριστον.

Two busy professionals have a baby. Now what?

The outside world does not wait for you. We run the same race at the same pace, but now with a figurative hundred-pound-weight on our shoulders.

Don’t get me wrong; becoming parents is the most incredible thing that has happened to us. We are immersed in this tiny kingdom that our son reigns over.

But with the frequent meet-ups and events, and the attempts to sneak in a workout — it seemed like we did not have enough hours in the day.

My wife is a dietitian and professor who also owns…


Mindfulness In A Steel Box.

The building I work in has an elevator that carries my behind up to my floor every day. I know, I should be taking the stairs, but let’s not get into that right now.

I like to take advantage of those two minutes in that metallic container to set my intention for the day — it’s also a good opportunity to light up my self-awareness. If you happen to take an elevator up to your place of work, then the following tips will be especially relevant to you.

Meditation and mindfulness have been basking in the spotlight in recent times…


A system of core values for a meaningful life.

It was February 2018 and in a couple of months, my life would undergo the most dramatic change I could ever imagine. My beautiful wife was due to deliver our first child.

I wasn’t sure what this new addition would mean for my already hectic life. I needed a guide, a system to make sure I could continue to live a balanced and purposeful lifestyle.

I knew that, if I was to set a target path for my life, I needed to discover my Core Values — a short list of the most important things I valued in life that…
