3E is the Condition to Have a Better Life Especially in a Difficult Time


EnglishEspañolFrançais日本語

What is the essential thing to do what you like/have to do?

For sure, Coronavirus is slowing down and scaring our life. Everyone has different activities and objectives in their life sooner or later. As a curious person, I am naturally interested in many things, be it learning new things (e.g. language), dance, cooking, drawing, writing, etc. But whatever you do, there is an essential condition to allow you to do any of them. What is it?

It’s health. If you are very sick, you cannot conduct regular activities.

Although I love doing as many things as possible, health was the last topic I could think of until in my mid-20s. How did I learn its importance? In short, I learned after losing my good health. And now I became an advocate of healthy life for more than 10 years, and I found what I believe is the key, which I call 3E (Eat well, Exercise well and Energize well). Let me dig deep on each of it, hoping it will be of any help for you. It’s not new things, but being conscious about it changes your life in the long run. To live healthily, we need to do 3E every day.

Learning on Aging by Experiencing 18 years old for 18 Years


English, Español, Français, 日本語

“It is never too late to learn”

This is a post for anyone who believes, thought, said and wants to pursue this idea (I am one of them).

Everyone ages. Although we increase our learning as we grow up, some people stop learning after certain point, and it is ironic that one of the main reasons is aging.

“18 years old”

I tend to introduce myself when being asked about my age (except in a formal setting).

On the December 5th 2019, I turned 36. To calculate simply, I spent 18 years twice, and as it is a good turning point, I would like to reflect on what I mean by and why I care about that age, the relationship between age and learning, adult and child as well as a comparison between myself in 18 years old and now.

Happy New Year 2020 from Kenya (East Africa)!!

Please take care of mental and physical wellbeing, and I hope to see you in the near future,

Review 2019 to thrive in 2020

English, Español, Français, 日本語

Already year end? Time flies!

I am sure you have heard and/or said these recently. But the truth is, time does not fly. In fact, in this unequal society, time is one of the few things equally distributed to everyone, and is indeed limited. So we need to keep reminding ourselves of it.

For example, whether or not you use your 2 hours for watching netflix, learning language, exercising, attending meaningless meeting, socializing), it is the same 2 hours (outcome will differ though).

In that sense, year end is the great period to identify or revisit the fields you really care, review what you did to know where you are and what needs to be done. Let me cover these in this entry with my own examples, so that you can see if it’s relevant or adjust to yours.

Life is full of new encounter and departure, be it with people, items, jobs or places to live.

Since then, more than a month has passed and I already learned some important life lessons, which I would like to share hoping they can be informative and applicable to other situation.

This is sort of the summary of the series of physical space oraganization (the series will continue for other organization), which looks mainly at one of the most valuable space, home.

After hard work and study, it feels good to return home, doesn’t it? Having home is human needs and instinct as houses were built even during the stone age around 10,000 B.C. Having a place to live is privilege, and how it’s organized affect your life in many ways.

For the last decades, we’ve faced the problem of sleep deprivation (phone/computer screen light is the enemy of quality sleep), the critical issue which affects our productivity and health as we are supposed to sleep one third of our day/life and take care of sleeping environment. In addition, we are having another life-long problem: we sit longer than ever, particularly in front of desk (even more than the hours you spend for sleeping) which also affect our productivity and health. Thus, we also need to take care of the desk environment (on and around the desk).
