I suspect you’d like to make decisions you won’t regret. Right? Especially since we make 35,000 decisions each day, according to various estimates, and most are unconscious. Most are trivial, but some are consequential; what to study, which career path to take, who to date or marry. The fact is, the quality of our decisions determines the quality of our lives. Yet, we receive almost no training in decision making. Most of us learn about decisions the hard way — when we suffer the painful consequences of bad ones. I have plenty of experience in that!: Years ago, I made the awful decision to drink and drive. I was drinking heavily at a tailgate and decided to get behind the wheel. You can guess what happened next: flashing lights, a breathalyzer, and handcuffs. Thankfully, I didn’t hurt anyone, but the DUI was a crushing setback that pained me for years.…

Well-being means being in the state in which our body and mind are in complete balance. We all have just one life, so let’s live it in harmony with ourselves, with the people around us and the environment in which we live. If you are not sure where to start, try these tips to achieve and maintain your mind body balance. Nutrition and Physical Activity You can eat healthily but without some physical activity, you will not achieve the desired balance. The same goes for exercising without taking nutrition into account. You don’t need much to start a training program. If you manage to get some key pieces of equipment, the results will be there sooner than you thought. Start with a yoga mat, great shoes, and high-quality training steps. The condition of our body affects the mind and vice versa. For them to function in harmony, physical activity is more…

Stopping being sad and starting to feel happier isn’t a one size fits all. And to many people, the secret to a happy life lies in fitting into society and subscribing to its unconventional dictates. Happiness is pegged on other people. We strive to impress other people and find favor in their eyes, with the hope that they will help us shake off the feeling of sadness. We value happiness too much that we leave no room for sadness; we try to keep up an impression of positivity and happiness even when we shouldn’t. We couldn’t be more wrong. Sadly, constantly trying to be positive and happy isn’t realistic, it is draining, and it only intensifies your feelings of sadness. It puts you in a fictional bubble that hinders you from finding your real path to happiness. That is why you need to stop suppressing the feelings of sadness, frustration,…

I count my blessings that I met Andrea Marcellus. I’m not the most disciplined person regarding my weight, in my eating habits, or in any exercise programme or even the most likely one to stick with new year’s resolutions about these things, if I made any that is. You can read here what I think about New Year’s Resolutions. You might not be like me, you might not need some winning strategies for health and wellness and lifting your life. You might be cruising along and prefer I didn’t interrupt. But if you knew that the whole purpose was to support your wellness journey by creating possibility, direction, purpose & curiosity – the cornerstones of growth, confidence, self-esteem – and actions that will stimulate reward center in the brain and inhibits the amygdala (fear/anxiety center) maybe today would be the day that you would want to hear about Andrea’s 5 winning…

Can I be blunt for a moment? If you’re like most of us you probably need some tools to reduce stress and increase energy. The world we live in today is filled with pressure and stress, and as much as I don’t want to talk about it, sorry, but you’re going to feel stressed. It could be stress from lack of money, or work, political climate, violence and crime, or it could even be worrying about what the future holds for us. It’s been research proven by US stress statistics that 77% percent of people around the world experience symptoms caused by stress. You see, no matter how much you try to avoid stress, the truth is, it’s almost unavoidable. Stress can come through tension from a co-worker, pressure from your boss, work overload, medical expense, or family crisis just to mention a few. What about distractions, poor nutrition, lack…
