From 0 to 1.5k Twitter Followers in One Month
Back in January, I wrote a post about making a Twitter and understanding literally nothing about it. I felt like I was in a foreign country with no knowledge of the primary language. I just fiddled around, played with hashtags, and came up with one viral tweet that helped skyrocket my following in a short period of time.
Mastering the Art of Productivity
Why does everyone want to be more productive? Maybe it's because society has led us to believe that when we do more, we are worth more. Of course, this isn't true. We are all worthy of life, even through difficult ebbs and flows of our existence when things just don't make sense.
How to Realistically Increase Your Standard of Living
Standard of living translates into different things based on who you ask. Your quality of life usually forms itself through thousands of factors, many of which we are born into and/or can't control. But did you ever stop to think that each person's standard of living has most to do with their 'why?'
How Often Should You Drink Kombucha?
The bubbly probiotic drink widely known as kombucha has gained massive popularity over the last ten years. Trends for gut health and the benefits of probiotics have been better understood by the average person. I started drinking kombucha purely for the taste. It was the perfect cross of seltzer and soda, with actual health benefits and nothing really harmful.
Honestly Useful Tips for the Vegan-Curious
Hey there, future vegan! ✌️ I started my ethical food journey about five years back when a friend of mine went vegan. I was blissfully ignorant and blatantly clueless about what veganism is actually about, so she was my teacher. I was filled with fear of premature aging, malnourishment, and most potently-dying of protein deficiency. Looking back, I never imagined I would be a die-hard vegan and animal rights activist, religiously living by a lifestyle I wholeheartedly believe in.
A Yoga Retreat in Catskills Mountains
In December of 2018, I was selected for a retreat through the Honor Yoga Foundation. I was encouraged to apply by the founder of my collegiate yoga club when she shared it in our community group chat. The retreat was designed to help people who suffer from anxiety and depression and who could use financial assistance to attend such a lavish four-day retreat.
Why I Started Falling Asleep to the Sound of My Own Voice
Recently, I started re-listening to an old audiobook written by Louise Hay on how to manage anger in life. I keep the scratched-up disk set in my car and enjoy the soothing sound of Louise's voice during my commute to work. In the five-disk collection, I find myself enthralled by her words repeatedly, and I often replay chapters to really get her message in my head. The other day, she offered a tactic that seemed novel, and perhaps one that might help calm me on rough days.
Myths About Dairy Debunked
"Milk and other dairy products are the top sources of saturated fat in the Western diet. Studies have linked the consumption of dairy not only as a contributor to heart disease, type two diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease. They have also been found to potentially increase the risk of breast, ovarian, and prostate cancers."
How To Be More Attractive
We are constantly faced with advertisements and different forms of media throughout our day, often drowning with physically attractive people. We compare everything we can about ourselves to them and become invested in products we didn't know we needed. We spend money on strange contraptions that promise high self-esteem and a better life. It seems like it's impossible to escape being bombarded with ads every second of every day.
Manipulate Energy To Achieve Your Desires
I try to live each day with the realization that I am the creator of my reality. I am not one to believe that destiny has been planned for us before we are even conceived. I feel that we decide our life's path, for better or for worse through our journey of self-exploration. With each choice we make, whether a large one or insignificant, we are paving the way for our future selves.
What Is Intellect?
Intellect is the capacity to think through reason, then act. It is far different from intelligence, which can be obtained from a book, teaching(s), or life experiences. It follows the culmination of self-discipline and enables us to more easily maintain control over our life experiences with integrity and clarity. It can be developed on its own but is often sought after and obtained with practice.
