Brain-Storming 7

Situation: John retired two years ago. He did the job he loved for his whole life and his job gave meaning to his life. Without his job now, he is feeling empty. He feels he lost his life purpose. This feeling is making him think that he wants to go back to work. Now, he is... Continue Reading →

Thoughts Manager

Today’s a pretty rough day because I barely slept last night. And it’s not like I did anything… I only had a constant thought-flow with things that could go bad in my life (that and the fact that one of my cats made strange noises all night long). The thoughts were so bad that I... Continue Reading →

Mind vs Reality

Don’t worry, that “vs” is just for show. It’s not a battle, but there are differences, especially if we think about what “reality” really means. Have you ever searched for what Wikipedia says about reality? Here it is: “Reality is the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent, as opposed to that which... Continue Reading →

Life Assess

When you think about your life, what thoughts come to you? What about when you think about life in general? What’s the difference between those two perspectives? I’m now wondering if the feelings I have when I consider the worst parts of my life are the same with other people’s feelings. There are people on... Continue Reading →

Unstructured Writing

I always thought a piece of written content must be structured in such a way that it looks nice and that has a logical form from top to bottom. But does that apply to all types of writings? Lately, I changed my mind and I think it doesn’t. Structured writing is very useful when you... Continue Reading →

The Art of Living

It’s been a looong time since I wrote something and I’m not even sure I know how to do it. Life is so unpredictable that if you try to understand it, your mind might explode. Actually, this is what happened to me. One year ago, I thought that all I can do is write for... Continue Reading →

Time Use

Hi everyone, Let’s talk about how we can best pass time. How can we make sure that our time is productive and also relaxing? My mornings are usually productive. I like getting up early. My afternoons are a bit lazy because I usually meet my friends in the afternoon. But I still can do work.... Continue Reading →

SnapDragon Speaks: On Listening.

I'm a bit under the weather, friends. My apologies for both a delayed and limited post. But I'm listening to my body; she's talking to me. She needs rest. She needs warmth. She needs time. I wish you and yours a comforting weekend. All of my love, SnapDragon

Whenever he tried to exercise regularly, he ended up getting too tired and he gave up. He tried to eat healthy, but he is not used to... Continue Reading →

Tiredness

Hi all, I want to talk about tiredness today. Specifically, how tiredness is closely tied to the mind. According to some, some (or most or all) illnesses are caused by psychological issues. Illnesses are reflections of underlying psychological problems. I also believe that at least some illnesses are like this. However, my point today is... Continue Reading →

The Importance of Noise

Hi everyone, Let’s imagine a world where language does not exist. No one speaks. Our thoughts are not in words. There is absolute silence. Can we bear with it? I know I can’t. We humans need some noise (not the bad city kind of noise). Maybe this gives us a feeling that we are not... Continue Reading →

We Need Sleep

Hi everyone, The picture above is proof that I love cats and I also love sleeping. So this week I want to talk about sleep (I can talk about cats anytime). We all need sleep and we need it every day. I take sleep to be just as important as food in terms of its... Continue Reading →

Holding a grudge? – Reblog

“When you stay upset on someone, you give your emotional control to that person every time you think about her. You’re allowing that person to control your emotions from a distance. By not forgiving her, you’re allowing that person to control your emotional life as if she would be with you in that moment and... Continue Reading →

The “curse” of being wrong

This is something most people want to avoid. This is basically why so many awesome ideas die. People cannot stand the fact they might be wrong. They just don’t, especially when they strongly believe in a certain idea. This is related to the fact that an idea or an opinion is strongly connected to the... Continue Reading →

I need to vs I have to – Reblog

We do things every day. Some of them we enjoy doing, others to do because we have to and some we do because we need to. There is this thing I’ve noticed: whenever we have to do things, we sometimes feel worse compared to the things we need to do. Why is this happening? I believe this happens because...

Healthier through breathing

Are you familiar with Wim Hof’s method of staying healthy? If you are, you know what I’m talking about. If not, this is going to be interesting. Honestly, I had little information about Wim Hof, but I knew he is a strong healthy individual. Today I came across a video talking about his breathing technique,... Continue Reading →

The eye-opening decision

Believe it or not, we live most our lives blind. Of course, I’m not talking from a biological perspective, but from a perspective perspective. The fact that we live our own life has both advantages and disadvantages. The biggest advantage is that we control most of it (even more with huge courage). The biggest disadvantage...
