April 2021 suggestions

It seems like in April I’m going backwards a little bit. I don’t feel very motivated, due to the weird times we are living. I’m still doing good: waking up every single day at 6 and having my morning routine of exercising, meditating, and studying, but I recognize I’m living waiting for this times to … Read more

My first months with a Smart band

Xiaomi Mi Band

I’ve never really liked the idea of wearing a Smartwatch or an activity tracker on my wrist. I think I stopped wearing watches in middle school: after all, who needs it when we all have a smartphone in our pockets? I’m trying to approach Minimalism, and the last thing that I want is to spend … Read more

March suggestions

March arrived without me realizing it. A few things going on with my job, doubts about changing my motorcycle for a new one, dinners and beers with friends… nothing more!

I’m also seriously … Read more

I still think that kids and impulsive people should really understand how to stop acting on their own … Read more

January 2021 suggestions

This January has been the start of a year from which we expect a lot, after a weird 2020. Well, maybe not “a lot”… just to get back to our normal lives. Things are not getting better right now, but I wanna start to write down my suggestions for books, movies, lessons, activities and whatever … Read more

A bad start

Sunrise from the ferry

2021 didn’t really started well. On the first day of the year I felt sick and intrusive thoughts conquered my mind. And the optimism I had the day before made the situation worst. Also, I realized I’m still not as strong as I supposed to. Things I hoped for started to vanish and my mind … Read more
