How I Changed My Life, In Four Lines ‘What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step.’ ~C. S. By Leo Babauta Changing your life can seem an incredibly tough and complicated thing, especially if you’ve failed a great number of times (like I did), found it too hard, and resigned yourself to not changing. But I found a way to change. And I’m not any better than anyone else, not more disciplined, not more motivated. I’ve written about them many times, but realized they’re spread out all over the site. Here is how I changed my life, in a nutshell. tl;dr The four lines you’re looking for are at the bottom. How I Started Running In 2005 I was sedentary, and couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to make exercise a regular habit. How did I do it? I got healthier, fitter, slimmer, happier. How I Started Eating Healthier In 2005 I was overweight, and addicted to junk food. How did I change? I felt better about myself, trimmed down, and feel great every single day. How I Got Out of Debt How did I do it? And On and On 1. It works.

Waking Up at 5 am Experiment - Conclusion Wow, it has been a month since I started my waking up at 5 am experiment, and I think it’s a good time to draw some conclusions. First, I want to say that I started this experiment to see what would have happened if I started to wake up early. As a 23 years old guy, I knew that it would have been hard, but I decided to try anyway. After all, I knew I could have quit after 30 days if I wanted to, so it was not a lifetime commitment. If you are just looking for the quick answer, yes, I’ll continue to wake up at 5 am now that the experiment is over. Keep reading if you want to find out why. Waking up Waking up at 5 am may seem difficult to do, but it’s not. Before starting this experiment, I used to sleep 8-9 hours per night, but now I get 7-8 instead, and I still feel very energetic. One thing that’s worth mentioning is that I have no problems doing high intensity activities during the day. Having said that, if I want an immediate boost of energy I would simply take a 20 minutes nap.

The 20 Things You Need To Accomplish In Your 20s Motivation• Paul Hudson • Our 20s are extremely important, formative years of our lives. It is primarily the time where we transition into adulthood. All of the habits and things we achieve in this time period are sure to be the foundation for the years to come. Many people use this time as an excuse to act reckless with the idea that they can turn things around when they get older. Although there are such things as second opportunities, you must understand that with the growing level of global competition, your chances for a second opportunity greatly decrease. Being 20 and young is no longer a valid excuse to do what you want. Our 30s can be very successful, or a complete failure, all depending on what we learn and how much effort we put in during our 20s.

The Best Teacher I Ever Had Best Teacher I Ever Had by David Owen Extracted from Reader's Digest (Asian Edition), April 1991, pp. 47-48. (From: Dr Leong Hon Wai (梁汉槐), SOC, NUS, Singapore; To: All my students;) url: Mr. When he returned my paper, I was shocked. Very simple, Mr. Needless to say, we were outraged. We should have figured it out, Mr. Mr. Every class was an adventure with Mr. We carried our brand-new skepticism into all our classes. If I'm ever asked to propose a solution to the problems in our schools, it will be Mr. Not everyone sees the value in this. David Owen, Condensed from Life (October '90).

How To Be Happy Back to home page click here First of all, be realistic. Nobody is happy all of the time and it is perfectly normal to have variations in moods and feelings from day to day, month to month, and even year to year. According to a study based on data from the British Household Panel Survey, overall levels of happiness decline from one's teens until one's 40s and then pick up until they peak in one's early 70s [for more data click here]. So the chances are that your happiest days are yet to come. Doesn't that make you happier?

15 parenting mistakes you don’t know you’re making | SingaporeScene Many parents think that they might be doing what's best for their child but they may unknowingly be hurting them … Through my work, I've had the honour of interacting with thousands of students and young adults. When students and young adults share their struggles with me, it becomes evident that many of these struggles have to do with their relationship with their parents. Obviously, parents would never intentionally frustrate their children. But none of us are perfect, and parents are no exception. In this article, I'll describe 15 things that parents often do inadvertently, which hurt their children. I'll make it clear upfront that I'm not a parent myself; all of these observations are written from the child's perspective. (To avoid writing "he or she" repeatedly, I'll assume that the child is female.) 1. It's shocking that, in a fit of anger, many parents call their child "stupid" or "useless". 2. 3. 4. 5. Discipline should be carried out when the parents are calm. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
