How to Upgrade Your Morning Routine


Imagine how much life would improve if you felt good in the morning. For many of us, it can take hours before the brain fog clears and we’re able to actually start working productively. Others experience back pain in the mornings, headaches or just low energy; and the result is an uncomfortable start to the day with hampered productivity… The solution? Upgrade your morning routine! With the...

How to Use the Default Mode Network to Increase Creativity


Have you ever been taking a shower when you suddenly had a breakthrough or a great idea? Or perhaps it came to you while you were cutting vegetables, or maybe taking a walk? At any rate, the best ideas will often come to us when we’re not trying to ‘force’ them and often when we don’t expect them. In fact at IDEO headquarters (a design consultancy), employees are...

If you’re interested in your health, in your happiness, or in your productivity, then there’s a good chance that you’ll have read some self-improvement literature or even have watched some talks on YouTube.

Should You Be a Jack of All Trades? Da Vinci Would Say Yes!


The saying ‘jack of all trades, master of none’ is a well-known expression and one that will come to mind for many of us when thinking about the type of person who has many different pursuits, hobbies and interests rather than focussing on any single one in particular. It is also a saying that seems to have a somewhat negative connotation. The idea here, is that if you’re...

Addicted to Self-Improvement? Why Too Much Self-Help Can Be a Bad Thing


Self-improvement is an admirable and worthwhile pursuit. Our minds and bodies are highly adaptable and versatile mechanisms, and the realisation that they are ours to mould is hugely empowering. Not happy with some aspect of yourself? Then change it! Want to achieve something? Then just hone your skills and go for it! This can help you to achieve your goals and to live the life you want to lead...

How to Be More Present – Live in the Moment and Increase Your Charisma


Having a rich and vibrant inner-life is highly important and a fantastic way to better understand yourself. It can also help with becoming more creative, make you better at planning ahead and even more thoughtful. All this is great, but what’s just as important is that you maintain the ability to turn that off. In other words, you need to be able to sometimes switch focus from your inner...

Why You Need to Quit Something in Order to Get Into Shape


Want to get into shape and develop the body you’ve always dreamed of having? Get in line! Just about everybody on the planet has at some time wished for more muscle, less fat or generally a more toned and impressive physique.

A Highly Useful Skill: How to Fall Asleep Anywhere, Instantly


Have you ever felt envious of people who can fall asleep anywhere at will? The kinds of people who sleep soundly next to you on the plane while you toss and turn trying to get comfortable with the limited leg room and horridly dry air, or who can just turn off the alarm in the morning and go straight back to sleep while you lie staring up at the ceiling? If so, then you have probably imagined...

Do We Really Only Use 10% of Our Brains?


If you have ever seen the film Limitless, or trailers for the new film ‘Lucy’, you may have heard the idea thrown around that humans only use 10% of their brain. The idea behind this is that we only have ‘access’ to a portion of our brains, with the rest being somehow locked away, preventing us from fulfilling our true potential. In films like ‘Lucy’ where the...

How You Can Use ‘Tiny Habits’ to Change Your Behaviour and Your Life


Most of us have any number of bad habits we don’t want (like drinking or biting our nails) as well as lacking habits that we could possibly benefit from (like flossing or going to the gym).
