6 NEIL GAIMAN INSPIRATIONAL LESSONS TO TAKE IN FOR THE NEW YEAR
Make Good Art was a speech that Neil Gaiman delivered for some graduates at an university back in 2012 and it was after that event, that it was put into a very beautifully designed book named Make Good Art that I read and even though its teachings refer to what it needs to be done to accomplish a good art in the arts field, I believe I can twist them and make them be valuable as a inspiration to take on for the New Year for anything that you wish to accomplish. Or for your New Year’s Resolutions’ tools to help you attain the goals you have set up to.
HOW TO CHANGE YOUR EATING HABITS IN 5 STEPS
I have always striven to eat as healthy as possible and for a very long time, I thought I was having a good eating lifestyle taking into consideration the facts that I do not drink, I do not smoke, I do not drink coffee, I do not eat fast food, I do not eat processed foods or microwaved food. I do not eat dairy, with the only exception being butter. I eat meat once a month or on Esther and Christmas (you cannot refuse food from your parents), and that’s usually some sort of fish. But I was eating chocolate. Lots of sweets and sugar. And that compensates for all the other bad eating habits. Sugar is the most toxic substance for the human body. Sugar is poison. Sugar is the main cause of obesity, chronic diseases, cholesterol issues, heart attacks, cardiovascular problems and ALL other diseases.
WHY SHOULD YOU LEARN A (NEW) FOREIGN LANGUAGE?
Apart from the obvious, for the sake of it, (nah, just kidding!) because you love that specific language, because you like the culture and because it looks good on your resume, (if you actually can speak it fluently), I have other reasons behind why you should learn another or (if this is the first time you are learning a new language) A foreign language.
HOW TO DARE
The followings are excerpts from the book “Creative Confidence – unleashing the creative potential within us all” and are taken from the chapter named DARE – from fear to courage, which in my opinion, pinpoints not just the creative process, but the decision making in life overall. I found it very useful, meaningful so, hopefully, if you had not had the chance to read the book, these glimpses into its fragments will convince you to pick it up from a book shop.
What is Positive Psychology
Positive Psychology is a form of therapy developed by Nossrat Peseschkian in Germany in 1968. The author discovered that using stories and fairy-tales as well as examples of other cultures, the patient is more prone to becoming capable of broadening his perspectives over his own problems, issues and conflicts and he can look at himself as well as to others from different angles, enabling the patient to treat his conflicting thoughts, ideas and situations.
HOW TO THINK LIKE SHERLOCK HOLMES
“Holmes was a detective second to none, it is true. But his insights into the human mind rival his greatest feats of criminal justice. What Sherlock Holmes offers isn’t just a way of solving crimes. It is an entire way of thinking, a mindset … a model for thinking, a way of being.” (Maria Konnikova)
