“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”― L.M. Montgomery

There is a good reason why most of us have almost neurotic obsession thinking about future. And it is hope.

We have high hopes for tomorrow, even those of us who have the phrase ‘there is no future for me’ on repeat, deep inside hope that tomorrow something will change for them. But will it?

Sure, the weather will be different tomorrow and sky will have a new tracery of clouds but you need to do something today in order to…


I slowly learned that being happy comes down to making sure you not only are using all parts of your brain in a balanced way but are also connecting your brain and your body. — Healthy Brain, Happy Life by Wendy Suzuki

I have always been terrible at acing this part of life that included daily activity of not only my brain but my body as well. As a writer, I used to spend hours at my desk, squeezing the juice of my creativity to the last drop 7 days a week, month after month and year after year. …


I think and think and think, I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.”– Jonathan Safran Foer

Overthinking? Guilty as charged!

“Out of clutter, find simplicity.” ― Albert Einstein

Simplicity is the greatest power of minimalism. I am not a minimalist in traditional understanding of the word but I have always had a tender heart to the idea of removing all the trumpery and focusing on what values the most.

The idea has become the base of the methods I’ve been using for almost two years now to handle such unpleasant occurrences as brain fog, anxiety (because all the negative things popping up inside of the mind boost it), distraction, mood swings and other mental costs of cluttered mind.

Mind should…


“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” — Buddha.

What is mindset?

Think of your mindset as of a personal gallery where instead of paintings and other art pieces you collect your strongest thoughts and beliefs that in turn, shape your habits and affect your behavior.

If you are a boat, your mindset is paddles. It is what directs your life, expends your personal and professional horizons, and makes you who you are today.
