What color is your health?

 

Welcome to Insights by the Foolish Couple. My name is Andrew, and I am one of the foolish couple.

 I love driving and I’ve been driving since I was 16 years old. I’ve driven in many different states and countries. Now while some of the local traffic rules may be different, one thing is universal across the board.

Traffic lights.

Almost all of them have Red, yellow, and green lights.

Green means go and red means stop.

What about the yellow light?

Well, generally, you are supposed to slow down and stop before the light turns red.

But, nowadays, I’ve noticed that a lot of people actually run the yellow light, sometimes they run right into a solid red light.

Now I don’t have to tell you how dangerous that is. I’ve known multiple friends and family, myself included that had car accidents because of people running red lights.

But did you know that the different color traffic lights can apply to your health too?

Are you on a GREEN light? Or are you...

How Food became scientific

 


What is TACT?
 
Taste

Aroma

Color

Texture
 
These used to be the 4 standards of good food. That’s how my grandparents taught my parents, and how my parents taught me.
 
A simple plate of stir fried Chinese broccoli. The vegetables should have a nice green color. It should smell like freshly cut vegetables, have nice taut texture and not overcooked and it should taste, well, like vegetables.
 

But this is before food became scientific. The TACT standards are no longer enough to validate how good the food really is for you.
 
Nowadays, All fruits and vegetables are colorful. That’s because colors can be infused into our crops genetically. An apple looks more “red” than they should be and an orange is, well, more orange color.
 
With the latest scientific ‘break-through’, we can now grow apples that do not oxidize after you cut it. You know how usually after you cut an apple, their flesh turns brown? That is oxidation and it used...

So what exactly is the power of attraction?
 
Well, if you Google the phrase ‘power of attraction’, it is more commonly known as the law of attraction. And there are a lot of theories of how to use the law of attraction to manifest your dreams, to make your dreams come true.
 
We tend to think of this a little...

How do OLYMPIANS fuel their bodies?

Foolish Review 2018 – Week 9 – How do OLYMPIANS fuel their bodies?

Welcome to the Foolish Couple’s Sunday Review. Our work focuses on promoting healthy lifestyles and couple’s wellbeing.

It felt like the whole world was watching the 2018 Winter Olympics. Once every 4 years, athletes trained non-stop just to be able to take a stab at getting GOLD. Being an Olympian is a lifetime achievement for any dedicated athlete.

Winter Olympics has a special place in my heart. I’m not a Winter sports person, I don’t ski, snowboard, ice skate, or do anything remotely close to ice or snow. However, we have personally met a few of the Olympic medalists, and they felt like friends to us.

There were a reported 2925 athletes that went to South Korea to compete at the Winter Olympics.

Olympic athletes have surprisingly high levels of commitment and dedication to their sports. They also take amazing care of their bodies. After all, their vehicle to success is their...

10 Signs you are a work addict

Are you addicted to work?

Addiction is generally a bad word. Most commonly used in relation to illegal substances, alcohol and gambling. It involves a compulsive need to something of substance. A gambler cannot walk away from a gambling table, until he is either being asked to leave or lost all his money. A drug addict must rely on the use of illegal substance to sustain his addiction. An alcoholic must have alcohol in their hands. They may hide it in a flask, but they cannot hide their addiction. Cigarette smokers are addicted to smoking. Addicts show physical signs of misery when they are not satisfied with an illegal substance and they often turn to other forms of addiction.  For instance most smokers are also alcoholics.

But there are other forms of addiction also. Some people are addicted to adrenaline. They will do anything to get that ‘adrenaline rush’, such as cliff diving, bungie jumping, or walking across 2 buildings on a tight rope. We call them...

Lover? Friends? Roommates? Frenemies?

health love relationships Feb 19, 2018

We just celebrated our 30 years since we first went out on our first date. It brought back so many memories on what led up to how we met and even certain secrets we didn’t know about how we met until now. 

 

For instance, Minna did not know that I hacked into our computer class with my best friend to get her phone number and address.  She was always surprised how I got her phone number, now she knows.

 

I did not know that the romantic poem she sent to me anonymously was a dare and that she didn’t actually even write it, one of her best friends did! What a good laugh we got finding out 30 years later.

 

It’s been an amazing 30 years together and we still have that gleam in our eyes and smile every morning when we get up and we can’t wait to see each other again in the evening if we are apart doing our own gigs… Over dinner we will talk about how our days went, the funny things that happened and any challenges we encountered...

An Introvert's Guide to making an Awesome First Impression

This week, I was working on a new assignment, and I found myself in a position where I had to meet many new people, and quickly make a good impression with them so that we can work together peacefully and efficiently. As an introvert, leaving a good impression would have been a little difficult in the past, but I have outlived that fear many years ago.

Here’s how.

Extroverts seem to be able to do it all, don't they? My husband can walk up to any stranger and strike up a conversation. I can barely muster up the courage to ask for directions. He longs to go out and meet new people and make new friends. I prefer to stay home where I am safe and nicely tucked way from the world.

 Maybe I can blame my parents for my ‘introvertedness’. Growing up, our apartment was always quiet. You could hear the movements of my mother cooking, or my father flipping the pages of  a newspaper. Except for the few hours when the TV was on, the house was quiet. Those days,...

Too Busy to Eat Well? Here's how to fix a Broken Diet

Welcome to the Foolish Couple’s insights. Our work focuses on promoting healthy lifestyles.

This week, our discussions revolve around being busy and how busy professionals stay healthy.

 I often feel like I am the busiest person in the world. A full time gig during the day, 2 side businesses to run during night time and weekends, 3 cats that constantly make a mess at home. Between the work, side gigs, housework, how could there be time to eat healthy and exercise?

Yet there are people that can do it all. We all know that someone who seemed to be able to get it all done: Career on the rise. Finances strong, home is clean and in order, and healthy as a nut.

How do they do it? And, better yet, how can I do it myself?

If they can have it all, why can’t I? I don’t believe I’m genetically any different from them.

Health has nothing to do with money. You can be the richest person in the world yet still unhealthy. Money doesn’t fix your body. You cannot...

Sunday Review Week 4 - No Good Deed Goes Un.......

healthy lifestyle Jan 28, 2018

Welcome to the Foolish Couple’s Sunday Review. Our work focuses on promoting healthy lifestyles.

Every Sunday, we review what happened over the past week. Incidents that went well, we celebrate, and when it’s not, we share with each other, honestly, without judgement. We learn from it and figure out how to prevent the same situation from happening again.

And every week, we conclude our review with 3 things:

1.      Billboard – A ‘wisdom’ that will inspire and motivate you

2.      Lesson – Something we learned relating to healthy lifestyle

3.      Memory – A memory of our time together as a couple

This week, it’s all about doing good.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished is a ‘wisdom’ that has been passed down for years. According to Google, the original quote came from Clare Boothe Luce (1903 – 1987).

Is there any truth to this? Perhaps.

Have you ever...
