Overwhelmed? Turn 1 big task into 3 smaller ones (+ a free tool!)

I’ve recently felt really overwhelmed, which always makes the simplest of tasks or activities feel insanely hard to do. Whether it’s meal prep, or texting a friend back, or tidying a room, feeling stressed can make anything feel like moving a mountain. 🏔 I’m using an app called Bloom, which uses CBT practices to create… Continue reading Overwhelmed?

Just things I’ve been thinking about. That’s it. That’s the post.

Aw man. I’ve been musing. I’ve been pondering. To the ends of the Earth and back. And we all know the Earth’s a circle, with no “end” — so, you know, I’m technically still musing and pondering… Anyway. This is just a dump. Of what’s on my mind. No order, no editing, nothing. Just my… Continue reading Just things I’ve been thinking about. That’s it. That’s the post.

Changing my relationship to money, and 5 of my guiltless purchases

50 pieces of unsolicited advice

I decided to try something a little different, inspired by two of Kevin Kelly’s blog posts.

I’ve brain-dumped a list of things I’ve realised about life and living recently, in the hopes it 1) inspires you to live a little more mindfully, the same way Kelly’s posts inspired me, and 2) inspires you to write your own list (also, the same way Kelly’s posts inspired me).… Continue reading 50 pieces of unsolicited advice

Why saying “never” and “always” is *often a bad idea

*often, not always (see what I did there?)

I’ve been becoming more aware of how I interact with people and myself, and the kinds of thought-patterns I have. And it’s pretty scary to have that awareness, because I’m starting to see how badly I communicate with the people around me, and even with myself, when I use the words “never” and “always.” Both in the things I think and say. It’s stopping me from having meaningful conversations, and reaching productive outcomes when I’m faced with a problem, a challenge, or an insecurity.

This post is about why they have that effect, and how I’m trying to replace “always” and “never” with “sometimes” and “often”… Continue reading Why saying “never” and “always” is *often a bad idea

Curiosity, fast drafting, and function: 3 principles that help me in daily life

I believe that everything in life has transferable knowledge — useful insights and teachings that can be applied to other (often completely unrelated) things. This post explores that idea, and takes you through three principles that I find incredibly helpful in my own daily life.… Continue reading Curiosity, fast drafting, and function: 3 principles that help me in daily life

Stop overthinking, start doing. There’s value in climbing the wrong mountains

We often tell ourselves to spend as much of our time doing things that push us towards our goals, and as little time as possible on things that don’t. The irony, however, is that by being so cautious to not climb the wrong mountain, we hesitate to climb any mountains at all.… Continue reading Stop overthinking, start doing. There’s value in climbing the wrong mountains
