He Says, She Says

 

Today’s topic is one that is close to my heart and it is one of the biggest problems that couple’s face. This is true for both new couples and especially old couples that have been together for a long time.  The single biggest mistake that puts a wedge in a couple’s relationship is arguments. Specifically, unresolved arguments.

 

Hi, I’m Andrew from the Foolish Couple.

 

For decades, all I remember about my parents are their arguments. Throughout my childhood, I don’t think there was actually a single day that my parents did not have a fight. What they fought about was always something very trivial. But as a kid, I thought that it was normal for couples to argue all the time.

 

The fighting, arguments, and the bickering never stopped until more than 4 decades later. And that was when my dad’s Parkinson’s got some bad that we had to put him into a senior assisted living home so that he can get the proper nursing care that...

Limiting Beliefs

 

Hi. It is Andrew from the Foolish Couple. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving last weekend. For us, we didn’t actually had a turkey over the weekend. Minna and I went to Vancouver to visit our family during Thanksgiving. And since Canadians don’t celebrate Thanksgiving the same day that we do, well, we didn’t have our Thanksgiving dinner.

 

But we are thankful that our parents are always there for us and we are thankful that in general our family members are living quite well.

 

But, our Vancouver trips are always a little stressful trip for us. Let me explain.

 

Lately, we have been really focusing on confirmation bias, and how we can raise our awareness on confirmation bias and probably even to debunk it. Because, like everybody else, we also have our own confirmation bias.

 

So this week, our topic is about the limiting beliefs on your health situation, and the lies that you tell yourself through confirmation bias.

 

First of all,...

Fun with your Brain (4 of 4) Hunger vs Cravings

brain health relationships Jul 27, 2018
 

Hello. Welcome to Foolish Insights. We are the Foolish Couple, Andrew and Minna, nutrition coaches and success mentors. We created FoCo Academy to guide and mentor people like you to achieve true health and healthy relationships through nutrition, exercise, mindset and lifestyle changes.

To wrap up our series on Brain...

Yesterday we talked about our second brain, our enteric nervous system in our GUT, which is why we really do have ‘gut feelings’. So how can we tell whether we are truly hungry, meaning that we are physically hungry and need to get food into our bodies, or are we just emotionally hungry?

We may be having cravings because we are sad, anxious, upset, angry, or bored.

We’ve all seen it in movies. The guy breaks up with the girl. The girl gets very upset, cries and pulls out a tub of ice cream and starts eating it. Do you think she is really, physically hungry? Or is that just emotional eating?

 How do you...

5 Steps to Younger Looking Skin

 

 

Hello! We are the Foolish Couple. I am Andrew


And I am Minna. We are the founders of the Foco Academy and we mentor people like you to achieve true health and healthy relationships through nutrition, exercise, mindset and lifestyle changes.

Summer is finally here! And for us here in California, it means 14 hours of sunshine. So this week, we are going to talk about the 5 things you need to do right now to get Younger Looking Skin.

Now before all the ‘Men’ switch out of this video thinking this blog is for women, you are so totally, absolutely wrong.

 

You may not believe it, but men have skin too. We all have a face and men need to take care of their skin just like women do.

 

The No 1 thing to looking younger is Skincare.

Skincare is not putting on makeup. In fact, it is quite the opposite. It is about taking care of your skin so that you look younger, more attractive and more confident.

When you take care of your skin properly, it will do a few things...

5 Reasons Why you KEEP Failing to make lasting changes and How to get around it

 

Hi!  

We are the Foolish Couple, Andrew and Minna.

We are the founders of the Foco Academy, business consultants, health coaches and success mentors. We help people like you achieve success in health and relationships.  

When’s the last time you actually did something good for yourself such as starting a new good habit?

What did you do?

Did you try eating a cleaner, more organic diet?

Did you try doing exercises to lose weight or to just get in better shape?

 Did you try doing something challenging, either mentally or physically?

How did you feel?  

Did you feel good? Were you happy? Satisfied? Fulfilled? Excited? Thrilled? Did you feel alive? Strong? 

What happened after? Do you want to do it again? Did you do it again?

Were you able to adopt that as a new habit? Or did you bounce back to your old, bad habits?

 

 The truth is, there are many things that we would try once or twice, because we know that it would be good for...

5 ways on How to be a Better Wife

 

  Hello, I am Minna from the Foolish Couple, founder of the FoCoAcademy, business consultant and transformation coach. 

Last week my husband Andy talked about the 5 ways on how a man can be a better husband. And he’s got a lot of response and comments from, well, a lot of women, wives, and they loved it.  

 So this week, I’m going to flip this around, and talk about the 5 ways to be a better wife. Now I’m not saying I’m the perfect wife. In fact, I’m pretty far from it. But my mistake is a lesson for you. And, well, I’ve made a lot of mistakes. 

 When we first moved from Canada to San Francisco, he had just sold his business and I had just landed my new consulting job here. So he became the househusband while I went to work.  

 And throughout my career, I’ve worked on many different projects for companies of all sizes and a wide variety of industries. One thing that is common, at least...

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...

How to have a Perfect Valentines day

Don't want a boring, expensive, disappointing Valentine's Day? This year, have your Perfect Valentines Day!

Once a year, lovers around the world celebrate their love together, through various gestures, mostly dinner, gifts, travel, or whatever they desire. Whatever is 'Their Thing'. Lovers strive to celebrate their Perfect Valentines Day.


I love Valentine's Day, because it is the day where me and my husband first started dating. That was 29 years ago and I remembered that day clearly as yesterday. That feeling, the connection between us, the 'future' that I saw with him back then. I remember.

Every year we celebrate our Perfect Valentine's day. Like most couples, we chose a nice restaurant for dinner. Eating well is a big thing for us. It is 'Our Thing'. And of course, gifts, cards, kisses and hugs. And other unspeakable things (wink!)

Does it ever get bored? mundane? disappointing? HECK NO!

Every Valentine's day is a Perfect Valentines Day.  Because we decided that it would be...
