Homework-turned-blogpost: The Obesity Paradox

I read this book a couple of weeks back for a module I'm taking now called "Obesity Perspectives and Prescriptions". I gotta say, this book was quite a shocker. I learnt so much about obesity and health that contradicted my preconceived ideas, assumptions and stereotypes about obesity. I highly recommend this book not just for … Continue reading Homework-turned-blogpost: The Obesity Paradox

Quote of the Day: Habits

“Chances are that you will do extra sometimes. And the reason relates to basic physics. Newton’s first law states that... 1.

Quote of the Day: Procrastination

“Don’t prepare. Begin. Remember, our enemy is not lack of preparation; it’s not the difficulty of the project or the state of the marketplace or the emptiness of our bank account. The enemy is Resistance. The enemy is our chattering brain, which, if we give it so much as a nanosecond, will start producing excuses, … Continue reading Quote of the Day: Procrastination

Quote of the Day: Self-actualization

"Musicians must make music, artists must paint, poets must write if they are to be ultimately at peace with themselves. What human beings can be, they must be. They must be true to their own nature. This need we may call self-actualization." Abraham Maslow

Quote of the Day: Success 

"Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as … Continue reading Quote of the Day: Success
