Podcast: The Art of Charm 614: Alex Kouts | The 7 Deadly Sins of Reading the News

If you haven’t tried podcasts yet this is one I would highly recommend. The Art of Charm is a great podcast with wonderful information. It’s a great episode about the dangers of following the news like it is your job. It can damage your outlook on things and keep you in a negative mood because they portray the bad in the world. From the episode: You rarely hear of a newscaster reporting about how many safe flights are made each day, only about when a plane crashes. 

Hope you’ll take a listen and enjoy it. More writings to come later 🙂

As always, Stay Classy!

Overcoming your issues and fears with humor

One thing I have learned on a recent episode of The School of Greatness podcast is about overcoming fears with humor. It’s a great and powerful episode about how to become something better and accept where things are. One key takeaway from the episode is to say “I love it” to anything. Even if you don’t love something or like something you can love that you don’t like it or love it. 

Make sure to love a great life and enjoy it as much as you can! 

Stay classy!

Rough times around the world, it will get better

Right now, and obviously over many years, there are and have been many issues and conflicts throughout the world. It is inevitable that there will be disagreements and battles between societies and the different cultures of the world. Things like this date back to the beginning of time and there isn’t much to be done about that. However, what we can do is try to get our mindset in a better place 🙂

Knowing that things will get better and having a positive outlook on the situations that are put before us is crucial. I’ve mentioned podcasts on here before, and if you haven’t checked them out before, a great one to listen to is, The School of Greatness by Lewis Howes. I have linked an episode below for your listening on Overcast (a great podcast app). If you choose to listen, then enjoy. Otherwise, take care and enjoy life!

Stay classy!

Busy week of work this week, but still made time for exercise

This week was beyond busy with things at work. I had to follow up on multiple issues and discuss many different things with the customer as well as internal team members. Being an engineer can be quite stressful at times but managing that stress is very important, anyone who is an engineer can vouche for that.

Through all the busy time and stress of this week I still made sure to get to the gym every morning before work and to try and get my 10k steps in everyday (wasn’t quite successful this week haha).

Some further planning is needed yet for Monel and I with our upcoming trips and visits but we are getting there. I am very excited to travel again, obviously I love traveling. Keeping things in perspective all the time is a key ingredient to staying appreciative of the things that one has earned or achieved rather than becoming expective and getting let down when something doesn’t go according to the way that things make sense inside of the brain. This is obviously easier said than done for many people. One of the many things I have realized over the years is that no matter what is going on and how stressful things can get, it always helps to take a step back and breathe. Doing this while focusing on what’s going on and where life has brought you to can truly have an uplifting vibe to the rest of the day and week. Meditation can be a great way to relax and focus better on personal mental health. It’s like doing exercise for the brain and soul. If you haven’t tried meditation, I would greatly recommend it. Another option from meditation is what is called gratitude training or just try reconnecting with nature. I often find that taking a walk outside during a stressful time greatly reduces the stress and building anxiety. 

If you’re looking at getting into meditation or relaxation, I highly recommend the app called Headspace or another one called Zen. They are both great for getting started. There is another great podcast for meditation as well. Check the links below for a quick and easy shortcut to each.
