Healthy nuts and dried fruit for a very convenient lunch bag
Are you looking for very convenient yet healthy lunch options? I worked with a nutritionist about 5 years ago to address a number of deficiencies in my diet, and one of the outcomes was a simple plan for lunches: lots of nuts and dried fruits.
My girlfriend Lynn and I are big fans of these lunches, which we have used for the past 18 months, so much so as to feel like claiming that they make up the best lunch bag for health and convenience. We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback about that!
The Blank Page As the Symbol for Writer’s Block, and More Generally Being Stuck in Life
This article is for people who are stuck in life, with a severe loss of self-confidence or for victims of trauma, which impact their ability to be creative and to realize what they want. The Morning Pages as a tool is a powerful method for processing deeply felt emotional issues and to slowly regenerate a feeling of confidence in one’s abilities.
The paradigmatic example is that of the stuck artist who can’t produce anything anymore, because they are totally wrapped up into a Gordian knot of emotional issues. This is often called the writer’s block or the syndrome of the white page, but it applies much more generally about any important situation where someone is stuck in life, getting nowhere, without a sense of direction.
For about 2 years going back 20 years ago, I applied the Morning Pages religiously, often getting up at 4 or 5 AM to write my 3 to 5 pages of stream-of-consciousness prose. By the time I quit, I had a dozen full 200-pages notebooks. In my late twenties, I had a lot of issues for which this stream-of-consciousness approach was helpful, like unresolved anger, feelings of desperation, and indeed being very stuck in life.
If you are stuck in a very dark corner of your life, this tool could well be for you. Read More
Many want to have a balanced life, but have no idea what that would look like, let alone reaching it.
I have made a good deal of progress towards having a balanced life myself, starting from just the opposite: in my previous careers, I was a workaholic. You could call this post the “Epilogue to the Story of a Recovering Workaholic.”
I didn’t get to have a balanced life in a day: it took years to build it from the workaholic starting point of my old past. It was very much worth the effort, and I want to encourage you to find inspiration to make changes in your own life from taking a look at my example. Read More
Here is another wonderful activity: dance for wellbeing. In this article, if you are not already a dancer, and even if you are, I want to encourage you with getting started and keeping going.
By telling my story, I hope to convey the message that through a process of improvisation and experimentation, you can discover what form of dance for wellbeing to pursue for yourself.
You’ll agree: Many people love to dance.
It is a very natural human activity.
It gives them joy, companionship, fitness and much else.
However, some people are very disconnected from their bodies and they have accumulated negative experiences that put them in inhibited states where trying new things becomes very difficult.
They have a long list of excuses for not even trying.
But we all have bodies and using them is extremely important for good health.
Maybe there are many ways of using one’s body to oxygenate all your cells, but dance comes on top as the most fun and complete form of physical exercise. Hence, that’s why I strongly recommend you to improvise and experiment towards finding a form of dance for wellbeing. Read More
