Become Comfortable by Not Knowing
Christmas time is always fun for me. Even though I have family and friends around, I still get a little time to relax, recharge and do a few things I don’t get to do much.
This past weekend I was in on a vacation. My friend brought along Robert Carlson’s Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff… and It’s All Small Stuff.
It’s a very good book filled with 245 little pieces of useful, helpful advice about how…Continue

Humans are a uniquely gifted species. We are the only ones that have a MIND. This can be a boon or a bane. Oftentimes it turns out that it is a bane. Why is that so?
Whilst we have everything that we truly need for our existential creature comforts and also for our continued evolution and growth, most humans are “unhappy”. What exactly is “Happiness”? The words HAPPiness and HAPPening itself give us the clue. Happiness revolves around the concept of being alright, being OK, being at…Continue

Not too long ago, my friend Randy came to me complaining of severe back, shoulder, and neck pain that had been plaguing her for many months. She was finding it difficult to sit at her desk for extended periods of time to do her work, and it was becoming harder for her to drive and even sleep. Coincidentally, her husband also suffered from terrible chronic lower back pain, so, needless to say, the two of them together were pretty…Continue

There are three main factors recognized to impair the aging brain: degenerative dementias such as Alzheimer's disease; vascular dementias due to clogged arteries and strokes; and so-called normal, agerelated cognitive decline. But this trio of threats does not mean that you are doomed to suffer from impaired ability to think, remember, and solve problems.

THE MYSTERY OF ANAESTHESIA
“Anaesthesia is a pharmacologically induced coma"
I WALK into the operating theatre feeling vulnerable in a draughty gown and surgical stockings. Two anaesthetists in green scrubs tell me to stash my belongings under the trolley and lie down. "Can we get you something to drink from the bar?" they joke, as one deftly slides a needle into my left hand.

Failure is part of learning - We should never give up the struggle in life.
As a man was passing by a horde of elephants, he suddenly stopped,confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that these elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals…Continue
