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 →
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. I was the type of kid who thought that everything could be resolved without conflict. I learned... Continue Reading →

I don’t know about you, but when I’m driving I sometimes feel that my personality somehow changes and I’m transforming into the worst version of myself. A while back, when I noticed that, I tried to notice how other drivers behave. It turns out that most of them spit poison everywhere at the smallest mistake... Continue Reading →
Provided by Marushka from Skeleton At The Feast There are many good arguments on behalf of contentment. I am in fact completely in favor of contentment, so if you find yourself at peace with your life please don’t read any further - because today I make the case for a creature called Dissatisfaction. What is this... Continue Reading →

Provided by Sarah Cole from PURC The Principle Of Sustainability: There are numerous definitions of sustainability. Like, the ‘entropy principle’ of sustainability states that life on Earth should not use more energy each day than is supplied by the Sun every single day. Herman Daly proposed these three principles of sustainability: non-renewable resources should not... Continue Reading →
Today my mind wanted to wonder about the limitation a human being has. Of course, this is not about our physical limitations, but more about our mental limitations, which seem to guide our behavior. With this in mind, we might say that our behavior is limited by our mind, right? If you think that some... Continue Reading →
In a world full of stimuli, we want everything. And with everything, frustration and regret comes. You start to double-check every decision and you keep comparing it to the endless potential. And for what? The biggest problem raises from the fact that we rarely analyze what we really need in life. We want this and... Continue Reading →
Provided by Anthony Garner from https://zenothestoic.com/ I believe on any number of counts, including personal experience, that we have the power to choose to be happy but that the road is not altogether straightforward. Our philosopher friends would tell us that happiness is a “quale” – one of a number of different “qualia” which we humans can... Continue Reading →
I know, I know! The first impulse is to throw rotten eggs in this title because we both know it’s not true (at least, most of the time). So the question now is: when doing nothing is the hardest thing to do? I think this is related to having control over the situation because that’s... Continue Reading →

It's the perfect day to stay in bed, sip a mug of steamy goodness, and let laziness lead the way. But there are many things to do. As I look in... Continue Reading →
If you don't live somewhere alone, isolated from others, then you see people and you notice them and their behavior. The question is: how often do you judge them based on their behavior and how often do you seek and try to understand the reason behind that behavior? One of my biggest beliefs is that...

Hello, Dear Reader. It's nice to see you again. I'm still here. I'm still SnapDragon, but now I'm a mom! (gasp!) Our little boy came ten weeks early, and while it's been an insanely stressful adventure, I'm happy to report he's doing well. He's our little champ, getting stronger every day. And so, in this...

Even though I haven’t written anything about movies as I did last year, I remained a huge movies fan. Last night I watched The Two Popes, a recent movie directed by Fernando Meirelles, where I heard the quote “Small pleasures are important”. This made me think about how important they really are and why we... Continue Reading →
