April 2016 Blog Posts (11)


Today I completed 6 weeks of my Building the Monolith based workout. I really enjoyed it and will be doing it again in the near future. I will be doing some traveling next week so it will be a good week to schedule as a deload. I am not sure what I will be doing yet for the deload, but it will be low weight and low intensity. I am currently planning to do a high intensity rest-pause for 3 weeks after my deload. I will post the workout sometime the end of next week.

Ways to Travel More Often

Every now and then, there simply comes a time when we need to forget it all and just recharge our batteries. The best way to do so is to take a trip abroad and by leaving your comfort zone, broaden your horizons and rejuvenate yourself. However, this is not always an option and two most common reasons against this are obligations at home or financial difficulties. When it comes to responsibilities, you can always take a leave or arrange things differently to gain at least 7-10 days for your…

Build a Fort of Happiness

Surround Yourself

Build a Fort of HAPPINESS

Me 3

Remember when you were little and you took the cushions off the couch to make a fort? You covered it with a towel or a sheet and brought your favorite toys or books inside with you. It was your private retreat. Your happy place. It was awesome!!

Happiness of Others

YOU are not responsible for the Happiness of another person.

However, there's a lot you can do to influence the people around you - either for good or for evil.

This is literally the most power we have in this earthly existence.

Think about that for a moment...

We have the power to make someone smile or to ruin someone's day. We have the power to cheer someone up or make them cry.

But this power is most effective on people who care…

Happiness is an Inside Job

It's important to remember to feel good all the time.

It's not something that just happens - it's intentional.

Of course there are times in the day (sometimes many, many times) when people or situations try our patience. Like being late for an appointment or getting stuck in traffic when you have to pee or being on the receiving end of someone else's bad day.

But we are in control of our reactions to these situations. I'm not a…

Life IS Change

Well it looks like it's time for a life change. Sometimes it's welcome and sometimes not. For me at this time, it's a mixed bag.

On the one hand, I'm emotionally and psychologically ready for a big change in my life. In fact, I've been craving one for quite some time now, which is an eerie feeling.

But along with the change, I don't want to watch everything around me that I consider important crumble to the ground.

That may seem like the tricky part. Well, it is, of…

What is a Pipe Band?

I’m writing to tell you a bit about what exactly the Akron and District Pipe Band (ADPB) is, how one goes about learning to play a instrument like the Great Highland Bagpipes (GHB), and why joining a…
