I take a deep breath.
In swift and decisive motions, I crack every single one of my…
The way we listen to music has changed.
Streaming services are taking over the music industry, enabling us in a matter of seconds to jump to the next song, album, or artist. We frantically tap the skip button without giving the music the chance to unfold itself.
It’s as if we are downing a bottle of well-aged red wine without letting it breathe. Because just like red wine, music needs the oxygen of our ears to open up to its full potential.
Here are four albums that will make you reconsider nipping music in the bud. These albums are like…
Ugh… Affirmations. How are weird mantras I monologue over supposed to change my life?!
That pretty much sums up how I felt about affirmations for the past few years. “I radiate love, and others reflect love to me” just didn’t — and still doesn’t — do the trick for me. As a highly sensitive introvert, I need my days to retreat and recover. On these days, I do not and cannot radiate love.
Maybe it’s the fake it ‘till you make it attitude I can’t quite relate to; I’m a very pragmatic person, and thus, lying to myself makes everything…
This article doesn’t tell you how to build a better nighttime routine. Instead, it shows you how to fall asleep when your conscious mind is ready, but your subconscious mind is not.
So, before we get to that, I want to make sure we’re on the same page: the best way to fall asleep is not by some trick but by keeping your circadian rhythm as unaffected as possible. In other words…
These are the things you should…
If today were your last day to live, what would you do?
A countless number of thoughts is probably bubbling to your mind’s surface right now…
Maybe you’re thinking of a trip that’s always been on your bucket list. You might be thinking about apologizing to someone you got in an argument with. Or, perhaps, you’re asking yourself whether you’d quit your hideously hated job.
Or you’re like me, and you stare into a blank space. That’s also completely valid. Either way, let’s try this again without the subjunctive:
Today is your last day to live; what do you do?
The newest season of Netflix’s “The Circle” is one of the most popular shows at the moment.
In it, contestants compete for $100,000 while isolated in specially prepared apartments. (Don’t worry, they’re perfectly furnished!) The only way to communicate is via the built-in social media platform The Circle.
The players decide who wins by regularly rating each other. The most popular players become “influencers” for a day and decide who to “block” and thus send home. Players can flirt, befriend, or catfish their way to popularity.
Let me tell you: this show is weirdly entertaining and addictive.
Why? As someone…
Nowadays, everyone seems to be obsessing over “putting in the work,” “hustling all day,” and “grinding one’s way to success.”
And that’s great, don’t get me wrong. After all, deliberate practice is an undeniable component of success.
Deliberate practice is exactly that; a component — a part that combines with other parts to form something bigger. So if deliberate practice is a key component of success, what are the other parts?
In one word: dispositions.
Why? Because if you don’t have the right dispositions, you’ll have to work much harder than everyone else and still conclude that you’re not…
That’s how long we can sustain our attention in the digital age. In the year 2000, this number was still at 12 seconds. Thanks to digital media, our average attention span has gotten shorter than that of an ill-focused goldfish (9 seconds).
So, as you read this very sentence, are you fully present?
Rest assured, I know I’m not present 90% of the time I click on something. Yet, ever since I started meditating one and a half years ago, I noticed a remarkable shift; I managed to increase my attention span considerably. …
Think of the last time you’ve experienced conflict, failure, or rejection in your life.
Got a situation in mind? Now, try to remember the thoughts that were going through your head. Be honest — were you thinking something along these lines?
Poor me, I did not deserve this!
It’s the other person’s fault!
And in case you talked to friends and family about the situation, did they reply something like this?
Oh no, that must have been tough for you!
That‘s totally not your fault.
Don’t get me wrong — these are empathetic replies, and they comfort us…
One year ago, I had to face a decision that turned my life around.
I had to decide between starting a full-time job at a renowned Fortune Global 500 company — let’s just call it Motor — and uncovering my personal blind spot.
You see, back then, I was finishing up my studies and simultaneously working as a trainee at Motor. The deal was simple:
If I continuously delivered good work as a trainee, I could start working full time at Motor as soon as I graduated.
And indeed, everything lined up for me to have a prosperous career at…
