A few years ago, we started talking about where we should retire, and we came up with a few exotic places that is remote but not isolated, with nice weather, friendly people, and all that. And then we talked about how do we transition from our work. So the topic of working from home came up and our goal was to eventually transition our work so that it can be done 100% from any location in the world.

 

So this year, the year 2020, may have been a weird one and has turned many of our lives upside down, and our daily routines have become a complete mess.

 

But this has also been the best year of my life! My dreams of many years have finally manifested! We wanted to work 100% from...

Since COVID hit us in March, for many of us, our lives are in turmoil. The way we do our jobs have changed and many of us have to relearn how to do our jobs!

 

Our family lives have changed. You love your kids, but you don't really want them around you 24/7. That probably applies to your spouse too. You may love them to death, but it's a different story when they are around you all day long.

 

We have been living in fear the past half a year. The media has led us to be very afraid of catching the Coronavirus. Which is why we are mostly staying at home, wearing a mask when we go out. We are no longer connected to our friends.

 

When is the last time you had a good laugh...

Hi Everyone – I’m Andy and I’m Sandra.  Welcome to our second session in our 4-part series of addressing ‘What Makes Us More Vulnerable to Illness’.  Last time we looked at what we eat, and discussed how to optimize the foods we choose in our diet to help us achieve optimal wellness.  Today we are looking at sleep.  And through decades of studying it, researchers claim that getting sufficient rest is a critical piece of the long-life puzzle, and in playing a pivotal role in people getting ill.

 

First, let’s have some fun with numbers…

How about two hundred and twenty-five thousand?  Well, that’s the number of...

Success in the New Normal Part 1- Know what you want

For many of us, we've been programmed, since childhood, about what we should and should not do. We've been told repeatedly in our childhood to be sensible and to behave like a good kid. What does that mean? Our parents and our teachers were programming us to behave in the way that they believe is the good way.

 

It's not that they have bad intentions. Your parents probably had the best intentions for you. I know that my parents had good intentions for me. Telling me to have good grades in school. Getting a 'B' is not good enough. I should've gotten an 'A'. I'm told, repeatedly, that to have a good life, I must get a college degree, even better if I have a master's degree. And that I should...

Over the last few months, our daily lives have changed drastically. The Shelter-in-Place order has kept us staying at home most of the time, and we are ordered not to go out unless we have to. We social distance, we wear masks, and we sanitize everything that we touched, we order take-out food and have groceries delivered to our homes. All of  these safety’ measures are supposed to protect us from catching the Coronavirus or if we do catch it, supposed to lessen the severity of the viral infection.

 

It’s been 6 months since the COVID pandemic, and for most of us, our lives have changed drastically. But has your life change for the better, or for the worse?

It’s been 3 months since the lockdown.

Most of us are asked to stay at home and don’t come out unless we have to. And that’s a shock because, before that, we were going at 100 miles an hour, chasing that job promotion or trying to make more money or meet our goals.

 All of a sudden. We come to a full stop. We turn off our engine. We are no longer chasing that goal or money or fame or whatever. Those instagram-worthy pictures are no longer necessary. There are no more ‘stories’ on Facebook that we must follow.

 

Sure, this pandemic has caused a lot of losses, in lives, in money, in jobs. But it gives most of us ONE thing that we all wanted, and...
