Ayurveda to the rescue

"The wise man learns to be fully aware of the presence of disorder in his body and then sets about to reestablish order. He understands that order is inherent in disorder and that return to health is thus possible." - Dr. Vasant Lad February 1st, 2020 It’s been over a year now since the start… Continue reading Ayurveda to the rescue

You need a good quality mat

Why? The same reason we have good quality food: it nourishes us. Physically and therefore mentally. Don't do yoga yet? No problem. Whether you need to meditate, do simple floor exercises or pranayama (breathing exercises) at home, finding comfort on a mat beats sitting on a cold hard bare floor that's not necessarily clean. One… Continue reading You need a good quality mat

We are all low in vitamins, chill.

A friend recently noted very somberly "It's an epidemic dude, vitamins D and B12 deficiency." The blood tests show this. I should be conscious about including more in my diet. I'll say it but I won't actually do it. I'll pop this multi-vitamin every day. Okay, maybe when I'm older or when something goes wrong.… Continue reading We are all low in vitamins, chill.

My sister randomly asked: "Bro what's collagen?" Stumped! I didn't have an answer for her! We all talk about carbs, proteins and fats, in that order even.

After getting this one out, I'm going to get working on… Continue reading My Gut-Brain Connection 🧠

Ubud Diaries

A few posts ago, I set out to discover why Bali is known as the Island of The Gods. It's not only because of the untouched lands, live volcanoes and pristine beaches. Greenery is abundant on this remarkable island; one connects with and is surrounded by nature, far away from the hustle and bustle of… Continue reading Ubud Diaries

Why I choose Pescetarianism

Pescetarianism means being vegetarian while still including seafood in your diet. If you told me a year ago I would stop eating chicken, pork, beef and lamb, I would have called you "retarded" without a blink. I would have reacted the same way most people do today, resenting the idea of a meat-free lifestyle. "I could… Continue reading Why I choose Pescetarianism
