Powerful foods packed with nutrients.

Every single person’s life on Earth is unique. We all work different jobs, lead vastly different lives, and live in different parts of the world. We have our own families, hobbies, schedules, and routines.

Even so, we all have a few common necessities — food, water, shelter, etc. Although most of us lead very busy lives, we all take time out of each day to eat.

Even so, I don’t think there is enough emphasis today on the health impacts of which foods we choose to put into our bodies. Food is not just one of life’s simple pleasures. …

Bill Gates is regarded as one of the most successful people in the world. He co-founded Microsoft, became a billionaire, and then moved on to doing philanthropy work for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

While there are some aspects of highly successful billionaires’ routines that many people would not want to (and quite frankly, should not) adopt, I do think there are a few key lessons to be learned from Bill Gates’ daily routine.

Some people might assume that a man with the kind of wealth Bill Gates has acquired (over $100 billion) would be spending his days kicking…

They just might do the same for you.

For about five years now, I have lived what I would call a very healthy lifestyle. I don’t love to use the word healthy, because I think it’s a very relative term. My perception of a healthy diet or lifestyle could be completely different than yours. Even so, it’s the best way I can think of to describe how I choose to live and eat.

So, I’m going to further explain what my healthy diet looks like. It consists of three full meals with snacks in between, and dessert every single night. …

No, it’s not 5 AM.

When I joined my middle school’s cross-country team in 8th grade, I was forced to wake up at 7 AM to get to summer practices on time. Unsurprisingly, this is when my hatred for exercising early in the morning began to develop.

During these morning practices, I always felt tired and half asleep. On top of that, my stomach hurt no matter what I ate. As a result, I didn’t look forward to my runs. I knew I had to get through them to experience the fun part — racing, but I also wished I didn’t feel this way.


A detailed overview with tips and tricks.

In recent months, I have grown more and more frustrated with my work from home setup.

I used to absolutely love my little office corner, but my deskspace has slowly accrued more and more clutter. It got to the point where I could hardly see my white desktop underneath the piles of paperwork. I finally decided that enough was enough. It was time to make a change, so that’s exactly what I did.

Earlier this week, I went through and cleaned off everything from old lists to important paperwork that was in need of filing. …

These are the ones that ultimately paid off.

I was in my final semester of college when I started my full-time job hunt. I’ve always been the type of person who meticulously plans things out, and my post-graduation goals were no exception.

I was going to attempt to get a job within my major (computer engineering), and I was willing to move just about anywhere in order to do so. I lined up about six or seven interviews with companies I was interested in, and took my first on-site interview shortly after.

That’s when my entire mindset shifted. Suddenly, I could no longer imagine clocking into work every…

In recent years, avocado toast has become a wildly popular breakfast food. People have pushed aside their favorite sweet options, like oatmeal, smoothies, and pancakes, for a seemingly basic meal of avocado toast.

If you have never understood the appeal for consuming a standard piece of toast with a spread of green mushy fruit on top, I don’t blame you. However, I still believe that you are missing out big time.

Avocado toast is not as ordinary as it seems. In fact, it is really quite incredible if you know how to make it properly. …

Plant-based eating has become more and more prevalent over the years. Just a decade ago, many people didn’t even know what the term “vegan” meant.

Nowadays, non-dairy milks, vegan meat alternatives, and plant-based cheeses are incredibly easy to find. In fact, they line almost every single grocery store shelf.

My own journey towards plant-based eating started from a young age. I became a vegetarian when I was about seven or eight years old. Never in my life did I think that I would transition to a vegan diet, but I made the choice about four years ago to do exactly…

Food is something that plays a unique role in every single individual’s life. Your personal taste, style of eating, likes/dislikes, budget, and many other factors impact the way you eat.

Over the years, the food industry has transformed immensely, and not in an entirely positive way. There are many environmental, ethical, and health issues that were not near as prominent a century, or even a few decades, ago.

My personal view of food has shifted quite a lot over the years. …
