My Dear Friend, You’re in a tough place now, I know. You see no purpose or joy in life right now, I understand.

"Wash out this tired notion that the best is yet to come."- Dave Matthews I had to remind myself this week that motivation comes from within.

For a person interested in studying anger and the angry response, this is a kind of perfect moment. There’s so much anger out there, being... Continue Reading →
Two – three weeks ago I wrote about why driving brings out the worst of us. However, as always, it’s all about perspective, therefore there are some psychological benefits of driving, under some circumstances. As I mentioned in that post, “I believe the car acts like a shell, a secure place where we can feel... Continue Reading →
I cannot stress enough on the importance of Making Your Bed In The Morning. It's is a new habit that I learned which has made a positive impact in my life. I make my bed the minute I am up. Not just in the morning but whatever time of the day I sleep. Making Your... Continue Reading →

People try to bottle up their emotions, as if it's somehow wrong to have natural reactions to life.”Colleen Hoover I have been thinking about my "feelings" a lot lately. Emotional feelings that is,... Continue Reading →
Provided by Evan from Mind Power Grow I’ll admit it. This is something that I did for a long time and let me tell you – it’s a bad habit. When I was younger, I was very non-confrontational.

Hi all, I have been thinking of something lately. If someone asked me who I am, what would I say? Other than the obvious demographic information of course. And I realized I do not have a good answer to that. I tried to define myself without association to anyone or any job. Assume I am... Continue Reading →
