The Mediterranean Diet

To be honest there is no perfect diet. It all depends on the individual partaking on the diet and what areas they are specifically targeting. However, recent studies have shown that certain ingredients play a huge role on your consumption and your overall health. Also, Iceland is no longer the number 1 country healthiest country. Guess who made it to number 1? Spain! Most of the foods in the Mediterranean diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables, legumes, seafood and poultry. But there is another reason why eating the Mediterranean diet is healthy. The secret: it is all about the herbs and spices! Here are some popular ones: Basil Oregano Parsley Thyme Rosemary Sage Bayleaf Lavender Marjoram Borage I have never had Borage or Lavender with any foods! Personally, my favourite spices are listed above and Cumin, Peppercorn, Turmeric, Garlic, and Ginger. There are a couple more but I cannot seem to list them off the top of my head For more information please check out Readers Digest and Taste of Home https://www.tasteofhome.com/ https://www.readersdigest.ca/food/healthy-food/mediterranean-diet-ingredients/

Finding Balance

If you’re juggling too many things, and you drop one, it will break. You will have less things to juggle. My experiences have been similar to the above quote. If you’re reading this and you’ve read my other post about how to decide, you’d know that stress and I do not mix well. That would be why I deem it very difficult to find a balance among all the chaos that life ensues upon us. Of course, we make choices and they lead to the outcomes we end up experiencing but, you know, some times we cannot help it and life throws us into a situation. These situations may become difficult to complete when there are other tasks at hand. Some people thrive in such environments, and I can too. However, when there are too many tasks I give up easily. That was how last summer went, after I began my 2nd placement. Mid way through — I think my brain had a short circuit — I stopped functioning properly. That was about the same …

It’s How You Decide

We make many decisions almost everyday, but do you sit down and think how much your decisions may effect where you will be heading in the future? Sometimes I question things, not because I am worried, it is just that I have many unanswered questions. I love writing those ideas down to look back later in my life, get and idea of how far I have come. Life is what you thought it to be. Unkown I have so many questions about life and a lot of those questions start with a “why?” I guess I am the only one who could answer those questions, once, I have reached my life’s full potential. I don’t know really. I mean it though, what do we really know about the life we live, other than what we do on a daily basis and small factors about our life such as age, race, ethnicity, family relations, peers, education, work, travel, costs/bills, where we want to go in the future, who we like, food we eat, hobbies, our personalities, …

Starting a Bullet Journal

I began looking into Bullet Journals in 2018. The process started off with me stumbling upon it on YouTube as my recommendations. I love that I clicked the video because it has changed my life and how I think about organizing and planning out tasks. However, it was just a few weeks ago where I read about Ryder Carroll and how he wrote the Bullet Journal book. I am still deciding whether I should stick to a minimal approach to bullet journaling or design each page with its on theme. With aesthetic pic, drawings and nice writing. His process and how he discovered the perfect way to plan and organize daily tasks is perfect for those who wish to manage their time. Track the Past, Order the Present, Design the Future In the picture above, I have my Muji Collections Bullet Journal and my first Leuchtturm1917 Bullet Journal. As well as some of my journaling supplies, which include: Muji pens and pencil, ruler, Sakura Micron pens, Zebra Midliners, and my handmade stickers. I use my …
