Is it time to rethink your tribe?

Is it time to rethink your tribe?

May 23, 2019

When it comes to being an adult, I’ve learned that you get to pick and choose who you surround yourself with. You are in control of your tribe!

On our shelves: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

On our shelves: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

May 16, 2019

Do you ever become super irritated at ridiculously trivial things, like dead TV remote batteries or that short stoplight by your house? Most readers may offer a guilty smirk at this moment, but the uncomfortable truth is that most of us struggle with similar irritations each day. Negative, unproductive reactions can be controlled — even eliminated! — by caring less.

What my mother taught me

What my mother taught me

I am who I am because of my mother.

In the “nature vs. nurture” psychology debate, there are two ways to determine human behavior. Nature, your genes, or nurture, personal experiences. In my mind, it’s a mix of the two with one main source: our mothers.

Pulling back the blindfold: My 30-day challenge

Pulling back the blindfold: My 30-day challenge

May 2, 2019

After starting my career, I cemented myself into a weekly routine. Wake up. Grab my morning coffee. Work about 9 to 10 hours each day. Commute home. Order Seamless. Put on Netflix. Rinse and repeat. Occasionally, I’d break from my usual weekly trance and mix things up with a trip to the gym, a cooking class, a long weekend. But never did I take a step back and reflect on the weekly decisions I made.

Living YOUR best life starts with making time for YOU

Living YOUR best life starts with making time for YOU

Taking time for yourself, or what a lot of people are recently calling “self-care”, isn’t a new idea and it also needs to be something that we think of constantly, not just when we’re overwhelmed. (It’s also not just for women, guys.)

We’re in an age where becoming professionals who practice contemplation is more important than ever. In the midst of all the activity and craziness around us, we have to learn to become more thoughtful and reflective about our thinking and feelings to lead more meaningful lives.

Why you can't let comparison steal your joy

Why you can't let comparison steal your joy

March 14, 2019

It’s a natural instinct to compare yourself to other people, from when you were very young to now. Does that kid have better toys? Did Aaron get a higher score on that test? Why didn’t I get accepted to that college too? I just got a new job, but my friend still has a better one.

We are forced to solve problems in every area of our life: at home, at work, and everywhere in between. But many of us don’t solve problems effectively. Maybe we don’t fully understand the problem, we only have a few solutions, or we don’t reflect and improve before investing time and/or money into an answer.

Loyal guardian or entertaining optimist?  The ancient wisdom of the Enneagram explained

Loyal guardian or entertaining optimist? The ancient wisdom of the Enneagram explained

February 28, 2019

Over the last few months, I’ve been seeing the word “Enneagram” pop up all over my Instagram feed. People credited it with making them better partners, changing the way they dealt with their kids, and helping them understanding who they were. There are books, there are blogs, there are really expensive courses you can take. People are really into this thing.
