Don’t get me wrong. I love technology. It’s how I connect with you and it’s how you’re reading this post. But as with everything in life, there are two sides to every coin: one is bright and shiny and the other one’s a little rusty. I’ll start with a story. I was in a waiting…

So what happens after we have been in a drunken stupor or high on drugs so frequently that it has messed with our mind? Is it game over for us? No it’s not. Our brain is a phenomenal organ – the most complex organ in our body! In brief, the brain regulates our body’s basic…

So are you somebody who prefers to stay on the sofa – or do your prefer to get up and do something?  Do you want to take action…? Think about this… 98% of the population probably remains on the sofa while 2% may get up and decide that they want something better… …Something better than…

It is possible for the body to go months without food and days without water, but only a few precious minutes without oxygen before the body suffocates.  Take a moment and focus on your…

When thinking about digestion it’s easy make a beeline straight for the stomach, skipping the mouth. And while we know the brain plays a role even before food hits our tongue, as the sights, smells and even thoughts of food get our digestive juices and hormones flowing, physical and chemical digestion begins in the yapper….

Is it possible to overcome addiction and not change?   I think about this regularly.   Even without addiction in the mix, we are creatures of habit and it is very easy to stay within our comfort zone. We have a hard time letting go of those habits and comforts – and frequently they often go hand…

One of the self-improvement exercises that I actively participate in is a daily examination of how I can improve the “me” of today over the “me” of yesterday. It’s not a complicated process – I simply look at how I handled life yesterday and identify areas in which I can improve on or change for…
