#62 A Chat About Time

Good Morning!

I sat down to write about what’s been on my mind the past
few days and I ended up writing down my daily schedule which I guess sounds a
bit odd, but when I make my own schedule for things it’s a really good idea to
have what I’m supposed to do with my time planned out or else I’d just end up just
entertaining myself all day instead of doing something productive.… Read More “#62 A Chat About Time”

#61 Do The Best You Can With What You Have

Good Morning!

The piece of wisdom that I want to share with you today is “Do
the best you can with what you have”.

I can’t remember how many times I’ve had to improvise to accommodate
how I do things in order to complete a project.

It’s usually not having the right tool for the job, or maybe
using a material that is sub par.… Read More “#61 Do The Best You Can With What You Have”

#60 Health Blog – What’s Leptin?

Good Morning!

What’s Leptin? Leptin a hormone produced by your body fat that is used by the brain to regulate hunger, the metabolism, and stress hormones.

The amount of leptin in the body is determined by how much body fat you have. More body fat equals more leptin.

When you are leptin sensitive, where the brain ‘sees’ the leptin, this process works correctly.… Read More “#60 Health Blog – What’s Leptin?”

#58 Health Blog – Fasting Burns Fat

Good Morning!

In the last two health blog posts I’ve written about how and why we store fat. This post is going to cover the easiest way to get energy out of the fat cell.

To quickly recap

  • Insulin is ‘the fat storage hormone’.
  • Eating carbs will cause insulin to go up in body.
  • Any excess energy not used from what is taken into the body will be stored in the fat cell.

#57 THEY WON!!!

Good Morning!

I can’t believe I woke up so late this morning.

Well, I understand why I did though, it’s because The Toronto Raptors won the NBA Championship last night and I watched the entire game!

It’s kind of a big deal.

It’s the first time that a Canadian NBA team has won the Championship.

I’m not a huge fan of basketball or any other sport for that matter, but out of all sports I do enjoy watching basketball the most.… Read More “#57 THEY WON!!!”

#56 Health Blog – Let’s Get Serious About How Body Fat Works

Good Morning!

I want to start out by saying that we still don’t know what causes obesity as a matter of general consensus. This kind of seems crazy to me because the current evidence is so compelling, but information like this takes a long time to spread throughout the medical community and then even more time for people’s individual opinions to change.… Read More “#56 Health Blog – Let’s Get Serious About How Body Fat Works”

#55 Reading Faster

Good Morning!

On Monday I wrote about increasing the reading speed and linked to the free speed reading software, that trains you how to read in phrases at readspeeder.com.

The idea to reading in phrases is instead of reading single words you’re reading groups of words, much like you read groups of letters and not the individual letters themselves.

Reading in phrases allows you to read more visually, actually visualizing what your eyes are showing you.… Read More “#55 Reading Faster”

#54 Health Blog – Why We Get Fat

Good Morning!

Last night I watched a lecture given by Gary Taubes, the author of the books Good Calories Bad Calories and Why We Get Fat.

He examines what we think we know about obesity and explains that the driving force behind fat accumulation is the hormone insulin and what upregulates insulin is carbohydrates.… Read More “#54 Health Blog – Why We Get Fat”

#53 The Meta-Habit To Improve Your Life

Good Morning!

A common theme that keeps getting talked and written about in the personal development content I’ve been consuming for the past couple weeks is to read more books.

A lot more. A book per week minimum and the more the better.

This  idea was solidified after reading about this in a couple blogs and listening to other podcasts with Gary Vaynerchuk, T.K.… Read More “#53 The Meta-Habit To Improve Your Life”
