3 Simple Things You Can do to Manage Tough Times

“Tough times don’t last, tough people do”, Robert H. Schuller.

Good days are great, tough days, not so. Sometimes, bad days turn to weeks without you even realising.

I’d like to share a 3 simple ways I manage the tough days.

1. Sleep

Taking a short 20 minute nap helps me refocus the clutter in my head. 

A short nap helps stop the frenzy of misguided unproductive thoughts that serve to upset.

2. Exercise

The office worker of today is mentally drained, exercising the body can help keep things in balance.

Going for a run or some form of intense workout helps release endorphins. 

The rush of positive energy helps with positive thinking and is a release of bad energy.

3. Reflect

At the end of the day, I usually pen down what’s really bothering me and what I can do about it.

Writing helps frame my thinking and gives clarity to what I can change and do to help myself. 

I’ve been reflecting for years now. Sometimes, I read my older reflections and am amazed at the little things I used to be bothered about.

They mean so little now. ūüėÉ

The line between im|patient

Someone once told me that words said in anger cannot be taken back.

Being patient might come easy to some but to others (myself included), it is a challenge Рespecially at work.

We live in the age of tech where communication has been reduced to emails and instant messaging, it is quick, fast and readily available. It is no wonder that people are becoming thought of as tools in the pursuit of some bigger goal Рlike a cog in the wheel of the conveyor belt within the factory of the cloud.

In a globalised economy where we’re dependent on someone we can’t see, hear, don’t personally know – it’s all too easy to forget that the person on the other computer has feelings, problems, emotions too.¬† Continue reading The line between im|patient

Coffee Talk is more than just Coffee Talk


Every week, I try to spend some time catching up with friends or attend events where I can meet people. 

I do it not because I have something to sell but because there is amazing energy and ideas that come out of conversations.

Meeting people teaches me that there is so much I don’t know and there’s so much I can learn from the people around me. It inspires me to keep writing.

Just like sentences, life needs breaks. Make these breaks count and have a coffee with a friend this weekend. Have a great weekend!
