Hi there!


Bo was getting ready to attend his usual morning

He put his jacket on again, took his files and walked
the conference room.

He sat at his regular chair and waited until all his
were collected in order to start the presentations.
Finally the meeting started, and went on for a couple
of hours.

Bo was slouched at his seat, supposedly paying the
necessary attention,
but his mind had already wandered
off to all the things
he needed to do during the day.

All of a sudden, he heard the speaker asking him his
about the action of a specific point mentioned,
his expert reply.

Bo looked at him, his face expressionless, because he
not remember any of the points raised during the

He had no idea when his mind went off track and missed
all the vital points of this very important meeting.

He felt very unhappy and really sorry for his behaviour……….

Attention is the most important means to lead a normal
and happy life.
We need to pay attention to our relationships, to our
to our day to day activities like, walking, cooking,
shopping, and everything else we do.

If you focus your mind on whatever you are currently
doing you will enjoy a good number of cognitive and
emotional benefits.
Not only attention is a source of satisfaction and pleasure,
but also what you focus on will shape your mind.

Attention is the search light that finds the target and
draws it into your brain    and in a wider sense,

Consequently, you do need to learn,

(a)   to place and keep your attention only where it is
truly needed,

(b)   to remove it easily and quickly from anything
troubling, disturbing or useless.

Being able to fully concentrate your mind is the absolute
basis to improve your life and yourself.


In our modern culture, most people’s minds wander
away into rumination, reflection and daydreaming,
and analysing, designing and organising;
and all these take place during half of their waking
and is causing them to feel generally miserable.

Certainly, there are many reasons why people are not
able to pay the necessary attention like:

1)     Ancestral heritage to be easily distracted for better
and longer survival.
2)     Natural temperament and individuality.
3)     Various traumatic experiences causing them to
in specific ways.
4)     Countless external and internal stimuli in modern

5)     Accepting and believing in multitasking.
6)     Counting on and taking things for granted.

Hi there!


Ed was going through a very tough time.
He had a great career, but that required him
to work sixty or more hours per week;
which not only gave him a lot of stress, but
also prevented him from having a balanced
and happy personal life.

Now he was seriously considering leaving
his top job and becoming an author;
something that would allow him to feel more
relaxed and be in control of his time and life.

Ed was really struggling, being utterly divided
and not knowing at all what to decide.

On the one hand, he had a very well paying
job with possibilities of further promotion;
and on the other he was thinking of an
enjoyable and comfortable lifestyle, but with
very much less money to go around.

How can I make the right decision!
I don’t even know what the best decision would
be for me.
I can’t see the future, so I must decide considering
only the way I feel at the moment, and the life I
want to lead from now on  —  extremely difficult .

He kept on thinking and feeling heavily pressed
and stressed more and more, for some time now ……




Policy Change


Every day in our life we are required to make 
various decisions, either small and simple or
massive and life changing.
Making the right decision is absolutely vital if
we want to live a rewarding and happy life.

The majority of people do not realise that their
decisions have serious repercussions, not only
in their 
own life but many times in the life of others.

The thing is, every single decision you make
in your everyday life, shapes who you are currently
who you will become in the future;
as well as your entire

Your whole life is decided and created by the 
decisions you make;    and this is all about paying
attention to your own intuition and gut feelings,
your knowledge, intelligence and judgement.
All these of course deriving from your personal
life experiences.

For most people, it is very common to use their
imagination, and place themselves into the 
new reality before they decide.
This is happening because they do not have enough
information as well as any personal knowledge
of the 

For major decisions, many individuals decide to
endure various hardships, discomfort and even
suffering in order to discover who they will become
in the future;    while others very well choose
to keep and accept the way of life they currently lead.




The Guilty Parties


Since people have to make decisions every day,
frequently some of these decisions are not
productive, rewarding or beneficial in any way,
due to the following reasons:

1)     Lack of enthusiasm, excitement and passion
about deciding on the specific issue(s).

2)     Fear, concern and doubt about the outcome.

3)     Many complications, obstacles and difficulties
to handle.

4)     Lack of answers and solutions for fixing the
point in question.

Making decisions is a demanding and laborious 
If you decide correctly you will feel free, contented,
happy and in peace in your future life    but it can
be a very complicated process to find the right




Strong As Brandy


If you want to make productive and rewarding big
decisions you will need to take your time and
consider very carefully all your options.
The following steps will help make your decision
process easier:

a)     Understand that your decision will start a chain
of new events to happen.
So be absolutely certain of who you want to be and 
how your life will change.
Have a complete life plan, and visualise yourself in
your future.

b)     First of all, you must follow your clear instinct,
your gut feeling.
Then start examining and evaluating the advantages
and disadvantages of your choices.

c)     If you wish to feel more certain and safe about
your decision, and avoid any problems and mistakes,
do your research and investigation on your choice.

d)     Decide and take all the necessary actions to 
complete and conclude your decision.
You must accomplish your final goal.

e)     Take pleasure in pursuing your decision.
Have fun on the way and savour the process.
Feel positive, motivated, creative, confident and

Magnum Opus


During our life we are required to make huge 
decisions that feel hard and complicated.
Some examples of these life changing decisions are:

   Deciding or Changing Career.
   Selling or Buying a House.
   Getting Married and having Children or not.
*     Changing Country of Residence.

Also, there are some points to consider when making
any decision:

a)     There is never a guarantee that your final 
decision will be the most correct one;
which means that there will always be a risk,
and you should always be prepared for it.

b)     Many decisions can be changed if they prove
to be wrong or unsuitable.
Consequently, you must view this failure as an
opportunity to learn and experience new things.

c)     Do not ever doubt and question your final
Once you have made up your mind, you must
follow it through and experience the journey

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day .
Henry David Thoreau     1817  –  1862

Solvitur Ambulando


According to research a great number of adults in the
western world spend around three quarters ( 3/4 ) of
their time during the day sitting.

Although sitting feels very good and comfortable, it
has short and long term hazardous effects on overall health.

It has been observed that women who spend more
than six ( 6 ) hours seated every day are in a forty
percent ( 40% ) higher risk to die earlier from any cause.
On the other hand, the ones who sit less than three ( 3 )
hours are healthier and live longer.

The worst situation has been seen among people
over the age of sixty years ( 60 ).
As people age and enter retirement tend to sit more,
an estimated ten ( 10 ) hours on a daily basis.

Physical activity is extremely beneficial to your health.
It affects the body and mind;   it improves the quality
of your life, it increases your lifespan and it is good fun.
You are physically and mentally fitter and more 
energetic;   and certainly you sleep better at night.

Physical activity is a miracle cure for almost everything,
with the added benefit of being free to you.
It is a vital part of a really healthy lifestyle.

home or at work.

*     If the weather does not allow, walk inside a
shopping center or similar.

*     When you are at home, try to be active by doing
various chores or moving up and down or just
standing, instead of sitting.

The Call!


Hi there!


A new year, and again the same story.
You start another year believing you really are
strong and
absolutely decided to change yourself
and your life.
This is a very exciting time because you do feel

optimistic and excited about your future.

You are positive and inspired for a new lifestyle.
But as the time goes all your new decisions will have
flown out of the window    and you will not be able
to continue any longer.

The problem is that although you do know what
changes you need to make, you do not have any
specific plan how to go about it, and you do not 
actually know where to start.
Consequently, you fail to succeed once again.

Obviously, it can feel paralysing when you start
considering the heap of actions you will need to take,
but with careful planning, organisation and a lot
of patience, you will come out a winner.

The Stumbling Blocks


In order to be able to conceive and construct the 
changes you want in our life    and make these
changes actually last, the very first thing you need
to find out is to recognise that these changes are
needed, without a doubt.

Then you must consider and understand, what 
is preventing you from taking the necessary
steps to apply these changes to your life.

Some suggestions can be, your fear about the future,
or what other people will say when they learn;
it can also be failure to achieving your goals,
or your
past conditioning, or other people’s
Finally, it can be that you judge yourself negatively.

Changing a habit, a routine or any pattern in
life, and introducing new ones is a very difficult
process and it takes a long time to establish.
Depending how small or big the change is, it can
take from 
two months up to a number of years.

The important thing is for you to be willing and 
committed to your new goals.
Also the biggest secret is to keep on trying until
do create the life you want.

So, be decisive and courageous, and eliminate all
obstacles from your way.
Make a solid plan and start taking all the necessary
steps to achieve your goals.

real;   and then you will be able to see how you and
your future life will become.

Walk towards that direction, and always remember
that nothing is perfect.
Change is a really long, hard and complicated process,
but the future is full of possibilities for you.

Enjoy your life!!








Ari was a beautiful middle-aged woman I had met
sixteen years ago at the spa I used to go;   but we
lost track of each other due to life’s events.

We met by accident that evening, because we were
both invited to that same wedding reception.
I was intrigued how she looked so very comfortable
and happy, and I went to ask her.

My life is getting easier and better as I grow older.
I feel very confident, I don’t care about what other
people say, and I ignore everything troublesome.

There is only one thing that makes me a bit miserable
at the moment    and this is that I’ve put on five
whole kilograms in weight during the last three years.

I must admit that it proves so hard, almost impossible
to get rid of it, even though I do try to be more
physically active every day “……..

Passage to Reality


Many people are trying to lose fat in their middle
years.   But this is definitely much more challenging
than losing weight in your younger years.

The main reason is that our metabolism is not so
fast as it used to be.  
On top of that, as the years go our oxygen intake
is being reduced, which makes it more difficult for
people to breathe deeply when we exercise.

Other contributing factors are various medical
and physical problems that make it harder for
individuals to actually exercise, sometimes even in a
moderate pace.

But do not despair, because there are many ways
you can lose excessive fat, and get the results you
want    and all this without going to any gym,
or following weight-loss trends, or doing anything
very strenuous.




Beaten Path


Adopt the following suggestions to help you lose
excess fat and be healthy in the years to come:

a)     Take a measuring tape and calculate your
waist size.
The measurement should be half your height or less.

b)     Make certain you are drinking enough liquids.
Water helps with the body’s metabolism and aids
digestion as well.

c)     Adopt a healthy and nutritious diet at all times;
and have small and more frequent meals,
( breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner ).

d)     Eat lean protein with every meal to prevent
muscle loss    the older you grow the more protein
you need to eat.

e)     Make walking your habit.
Walk every day, any time, any where,
( shops, nature, road pavements, stairs ).

f)     Keep on lifting anything, ( chairs, shopping, etc.),
because by the time you reach the age of fifty years

you have already lost 20% of your muscle mass.

g)     Keep on stretching your body during the day.
The more flexible you are the easier it will be for
you to enjoy any physical activity.

Bring To Heel


Our body produces four specific hormones that
possibly are the biggest antagonists in our battle
to lose middle age fat.

1)     First and most important is the hormone Cortisol.
This hormone is released at times of stress and
continually during chronic stress.
It contributes to abdominal fat accumulation, in order to
prepare the body for a combat situation.

The only way to fight excess release of this hormone
is to eliminate most stress from your life.

2)     Second is the hormone Testosterone.
This hormone declines naturally with age;   and
as a consequence, our metabolism slows down,
we lose muscle mass, and we gain weight.

The way to encourage this hormone to continue
being produced is to be physically active and
exercise regularly.

3)     Third is the hormone Ghrelin.
This hormone is released when we are hungry and
we need to eat.
Many times we eat without actually being hungry,
but only thirsty.

The simple way to fight this hunger hormone is
by keeping your body well hydrated.

4)     The last hormone to keep under control is
the hormone Leptin.
Leptin is the one that controls your body fat stores;
and if it does not signal that we have enough body
fat to survive, we keep on eating even without
being hungry.

The way to control this vicious circle is by eating
only lean foods.

Shot In The Arm


Here are some further changes for you to make
to help you get in better shape:

a)     Limit or avoid completely eating at restaurants.
Buy and cook fresh healthy foods at your home.

b)     Limit or eliminate entirely drinking alcohol
with or without your meals.

c)     Think positively about your body shape and age.
Associate with people who want to be fit.

d)     Care about your appearance.
Wear only well fitted clothes to look your best.

e)     Be patient, because it takes time to reach your
goals.   Focus only on your target.


Best Lean Snacks


  •     Air-popped popcorn.
  •     Plain yogurt with blueberries.
  •     Plain oatmeal with one full teaspoon protein powder and honey.
  •     Pure jelly with plain cream/cottage cheese and honey.
  •     Plain rice crackers with almond butter and honey.


Losing fat in your middle years is challenging;
but if you make the necessary changes in your life
you will reach your goals.


Make moving part of your everyday life.

Hi there!


Stoicism comes from the Greek word stoa,
meaning porch.

It is a school of philosophy that developed during the
Hellenistic Civilisation, in the 3rd century BCE.

Stoicism was founded in Athens, by Zeno of Citium
in modern Cyprus
( c. 344 BCE  –  c. 262 BCE ), and
very popular during the Roman Empire.
Zeno used to teach his philosophy at the Stoa Poikile

on the north side of the ancient Agora in Athens.

Zeno’s beliefs were influenced by an ancient Greek
philosophy that flourished during the 6th and 5th
centuries BCE,
called Cynicism, and whose teachings
were all about
living in virtue.

Stoicism is considered a way of life.
It teaches us to develop strength of mind and self
control in order to be able to overcome and conquer
our hurtful and destructive emotions.

It also teaches us to use common sense and judgement,
to be bold and brave, to be honest and fair, to be reserved
and self-restrained.

By using logic and intelligence we can understand
and accept the present moment.
The ultimate goal of stoicism is Inner Peace;
this is a lot similar to the teachings of Siddhartha
Gautama, the founder of Buddhism.

It is to lead a happy life and keep on growing mentally.


Tranquil Ocean


Presence Of Mind


Our modern every day life is full of stress, confusion
and negativity.
As a consequence, finding inner peace is so difficult
and exhausting, as trying very hard to find a hiding
place to protect yourself from evil.

If you want to improve,

1)    Your mental health.
2)    Your physical health.
3)    Your total well-being.
4)    Your self-confidence.
5)    Your creativity.
6)    Your productivity.
7)    Your connection with your relationships.
8)    Your whole life experience.


Adopt the following principles:


a)     Recognise that all your emotions are created only
by yourself    and not by any external force.
So, discipline your mind, and keep your thoughts and
attitudes under
complete control.

b)     Realise that there are many things in life you have 
no control over.
So, decide to accept this truth, and stop struggling and wasting
your energy;    as well as being concerned
 and worried about
all circumstances you can not change.

Detach yourself from situations or persons  —   and understand
that the only thing you can ever change is yourself.
Surrender and acknowledge what is.

c)     Learn to live only in the present moment:   that is, here
and now;

because this is the only true time of living.
Make this your habit, and prevent all distractions from
the past or the future.

d)     Pursue learning and growth.
Read books and various writings in order to become more
aware, avoid mistakes, be inspired and take better decisions
in your life.

e)     Have solid beliefs, and stay absolutely true to them.
This way you will be guided towards inner peace and have
better quality of life.

f)     Be caring and considerate.
Always hope for the best no matter what else happens at
the moment.
Believe that all will go well eventually.

g)     Develop emotions only for the things that really
matter to you.
Ignore and discard whatever else is out there.
This is your power to tranquillity and happiness.

h)     Learn to enjoy solitude;
meditate, read or write, sit or photograph nature, do
some breathing exercises, focus on appreciation and

i)     Resolve all unsettled issues in your life thoroughly,
and stay 
true to yourself without hiding or interpreting
things in 
thoughtless ways.
Only then you will feel calm and free.

Bed Of Roses


Living your life in utter confusion by constantly fighting
against everything and everybody is an absolutely 
destructive and deadly obsession.

The most major obstruction to enjoying inner peace is
your assumption that the way your life is at this moment
is not good enough;   so you need to keep on changing it.
Certainly this is an endless route, and it needs to be
addressed as soon as possible.

Learn to face the facts of nature, surrender and accept 
them as they are, without resisting the reality.
Take full responsibility for your thoughts, feelings, 
emotions and actions.

It really is a difficult process, but it can be achieved as
soon as you decide within yourself to start changing the
way you think.
You need to find new ways to improve your life, and 
transform yourself mentally.

Distance yourself from your thoughts;
understand change and the actual relationship you have
with your mind, in order to feel free and peaceful.

Inner Peace is a Choice.
Inner Peace should be your topmost goal.
Learn to make it priority in your life.


Good Luck!!!
