How Running Helps Me Be a Better Version of Myself

At the end of a long and busy day, or whenever I feel a need to de-stress and calm my mind, my go-to activity is to go for a long run. I’m not what you would call a natural born runner by any stretch, but I love to get out and run regardless.

I’ll often run at night, around the inner city neighborhood where I live. It’s a chance to stop my overactive brain and let new ideas enter the voids that this process naturally creates.

Along my usual route, there is a long and narrow path. One side of this path is enclosed by a steep knoll, which rises over onto a neighboring park, while the other side is lined with evenly spaced fig trees that h…

The key to long-lasting relationships is more simple than you think

Mark Manson, the author of ‘The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck,” told us the secret to a long, lasting relationship. And it’s simpler than you think. Following is a transcript of the video.

Mark Manson: I think, if you look at a relationship, I actually think it should be as boring as possible. And that sounds really weird to people but if you think about it, a really happy 80-year-old couple that’s been together for 60 years, the reason that they’ve been together for 60 years, it isn’t because they took all these private jets and they had these crazy vacations and “Oh my God, look at their pictures.” 

It’s because that they were able to be boring together. They are able to spend year after year, sitting around the house, talking about the same boring stuff, watching TV, watching movies, cooking dinner, and it went fine. There was nothing exciting, there’s nothing …

Put Down Your Phone: Why Presence Is the Best Gift You’ll Ever Give

“When you love someone, the best thing you can offer is your presence. How can you love if you are not there?” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

The only thing worse than not listening to someone is pretending to listen.

Giving the vague murmur of agreement, or a quick nod to communicate “Yes, I’m listening, totally,” when really, we’re not.

I remember vividly a dinner I had with friends about four years ago. I’d been backpacking in New Zealand for twelve months and had just returned to the UK. Traveling in the car to my friend’s house, I imagined how the night would look…

There would be lots of laughter (it was always side-splitting when we all got together).

There would b…

Brought to you by:- https://www.learning-mind.com/sleep-talking/

Do you talk in your sleep? If you are speaking in full sentences, mumbling or even speaking gibberish, then you are a sleep talker. Sure, sleep talking can be a funny thing, but it is actually a disorder known as somniloquy. It’s a type of parasomnia, which is distinguished as abnormal behavior that is displayed […]…

Amanda Palmer Reads “Happiness” by Jane Kenyon

“There’s just no accounting for happiness, or the way it turns up like a prodigal who comes back to the dust at your feet having squandered a fortune far away.”

Amanda Palmer Reads “Happiness” by Jane Kenyon

There are few things in life more inconstant and more elusive, both in the fist of language and in the open palm of experience, than happiness. Philosophers have tried to locate and loosen the greatest barriers to it. Artists have come into this world “born to serve happiness.” Scientists have set out to discover its elemental components. And yet for all our directions of concerted pursuit, happiness remains mostly a visitation — a str…
