Intermittent fasting

What’s the deal with fasting? Alex, who is a slave to trends (and his body), chats about intermittent fasting. Why he’s doing it and why you might consider it too. Say YES in comments if you’ve ever fasted off food for more than 24 hours. How was it? If you lack direction and focus each […]

How is it that I’ve been on this Earth so long, and still I can’t shake this off? Worries about the same old things. Grey, tired, tormenting ideas. Isn’t it time to stop? Can’t I drop it all and start anew? Take a holiday somewhere nice from the cubicle of my mind. Because I need […]

I have also suffered when I quit things that I should have held fast with. Would love to know your thoughts, both […]

When you suffer a setback

Alex is in the rain. And he’s pissed. What he (tries to do) when he faces a setback on his ‘journey.’ You cannot fold. You cannot be weak. Life is testing you. And a setback is one of life’s most glorious challenges… What would you like me to speak on next? If you lack direction […]

Alex stands among the foundations of an old house in Georgia. He discusses how creative people and anyone who is innovative and creative in their work and life, can infuse more exercise into their day.
