How to hack your brain to work in your favour

You have goals but are stuck in a rut.

Your mind is constantly feeding off distractions and the act of focusing feels like a mission in itself. You just can’t seem to get on with what you need to do and end up doing stuff that doesn’t serve you. You know you have potential, but the damn thing refuses to show up.

The good news is that you’re not the only one who’s experienced this doomsday. The better news is that there is a way out of it. Read more “How to hack your brain to work in your favour”

A sneak peak into the mysterious mind of a teen

The transition from childhood to adulthood is no joke. Amongst many things, adolescence is that perplexing phase of self-discovery, where one latches onto ideals of freedom, finds fresh interests, and falls for new people. It’s also a bloody nightmare for most parents.

Historically teens have always got slack for being bratty, rebellious and simply put- annoying little shits. The judgment against them is real and the emergence of their own views or ways about doing things is regarded as nothing but mood swings and hormonal fits.

It’s a sad state of affairs. Read more “A sneak peak into the mysterious mind of a teen”

Finding Freedom through Emotional Expression

‘Man up’, ‘stop being an emotional fool’, ‘you’re overreacting’..

These phrases may ring a bell given that the pressure of keeping it together drives our demeanour.

In a world where we’re judged and are sent on a guilt trip for allowing our emotions to come to surface, our default mode of functioning has been to zip it, suck it up and just get on with it. Read more “Finding Freedom through Emotional Expression”

Breaking the walls of Judgement

Lets face it. We all judge… All the time.It’s like we’re wired to put people in boxes based on our likes and dislikes, our standards and self-made rules.

Some judgements are based on our values of what we see as good or bad, smart or stupid, responsible or ignorant and the like. Other times our judgements are based on more superficial shit like what school one went to, where one lives, what cars they drive, what brands they wear and so on… Read more “Breaking the walls of Judgement”

Addressing the elephant in the room- the desperation of Validation

We have a problem and it’s a big one. So big that we’ve become better at being in denial about it than dealing with it.

It’s called seeking social validation, a need that’s on the rise like never before. Read more “Addressing the elephant in the room- the desperation of Validation”

Winning over Instant Gratification

It’s the middle of the afternoon and you’re on your desk struggling with an assignment. You feel like a breather, so you turn on Netflix to watch a quick show.

Designing a Resilient Life

Writing about this topic feels rather ironic given that for the most part of my life I wasn’t familiar with resilience, let alone embodying it. Having grown up with a lot of limiting beliefs, I was far from confident and had no desire to be seen in any way. So I shut myself away from the world, hiding in my little shell, going along the ride of life, with ‘I cant’ as my go to word.

The fact that today I can share this openly and the journey I’ve come along thus far, having set up my brand, putting out my content, expressing my voice through videos and podcasts, shows that resilience is a skill that can be learnt. Read more “Designing a Resilient Life”
