Steps to a better you

So you have come to a standstill and you have realized something has to change. That little voice inside you tells you change is of the essence. But how do you change?.

Signs you’re becoming an alcoholic

Sometimes the signs that point to addiction take time to show. Once, you realize you’re facing a real issue, you’re probably in deep. However, it is never too late to take the proper precautions to get back on track. All you need is a little discipline, and a little education on the harmful effects of…

The higher self.

What is the higher self?  Well, in essence, it is an evolved version of yourself, it’s a you that has been spiritually awoken. This awakening becomes imminent after there is a loss of connection between our person (or our soul) and the universe. The higher self then tries to bring us closer to our universe…

Yoga is the door to enlightenment!

Since I know about the practice of yoga, I’ve heard countless people talk about how incredible it is for the mind, the body, and the soul. However, all the inhaling, exhaling and different poses never really appealed to me. Soon, after educating myself on the practice, I joined a near by center that offered both…

12 places to see before you die.

We’re living in the age of communication, and technology. With so much going on around us, we often lose sight of what is truly important. As a teenager, I used to dream of acquiring material things, I believed would make me happy. As I grew older, I realized that acquiring objects was just that, an accumulation…

Feel good with a punch!

Looking to stay active so I could boost my immune system to fight the incessant cold attacks on my body during the brutal winter months, I started educating myself about kickboxing. I had never really given this exercise a chance because I quit soccer the day a ball flew at my face. Getting pushed, kicked…

Shaming, stigmas, and other shenanigans…

It’s really come to my attention more and more, how incredibly behind society still is. You would think that in this day and age, we’d all taken a chill pill already. With calamities going around to spare, shouldn’t we have come to a consensus that we are all in this together, suspending in the infinite universe, with “nowhere”…

Slaying the energy vampire

Asides from a nasty cigarette habit, I’d been battling against what I thought was depression. I later realized I wasn’t going through no depression, the only thing wrong was the negativity others dumped on me.

Looking for signs

Undoubtedly, most have had moments of insight, when all the banalities going on in the exterior world simply become silenced. This silence allows you to withdraw and take a closer look into your soul, no matter how brief the silence is we get a chance to introspect and accept that no matter how busy we become, there is still more…

Eating mindfully

Eating mindfully, a few years ago I would’ve lashed out at the very sound of this. What does this mean, anyway? Well it has been quite the journey, and there has been a lot of learning in the quest to becoming a well-rounded, healthy person. My learning experience, about healthy living, and eating, has been mainly sustained…

To exercise

I had been an unhealthy, out of shape, party lover since before I was legal. Always taking the high road when any challenge in the fitness department presented itself. I would often ponder, why should I submit myself to painful sweat sessions that would induce crippling muscle aches, followed by violent, involuntary waddling  24 to 48 hours…
