Kicking that lazy mindset away

8 07 2016


Exercise in the morning, it’s the best time of the day to do so, ‘they’ said.

It’s been seven months since I’ve posted anything but I realise that it’s time to getting back to doing what I enjoy doing, and getting out of the “I’m too tired/busy/lazy” mindset.

While exercise has been a constant during the weekends, I find it a challenge to keep to it during the weekdays. 

Especially when it’s late by the time I’m home and have had sufficient time to digest dinner before exercising, and that late night hair wash and additional step of having to blow dry it, weekday exercise is usually a no-go.

Yet today is one of the rare days that I kicked my bum to get moving. 

Partly because I felt guilty from having that cheesecake before dinner while checking out the new SAFRA Punggol, and also because I was reminded of the video about how overcoming laziness just requires a little mindset shift.

The rest – those are just excuses.

If you can set your mind to something, and it’s something that you value, you’ll definitely find time to fulfil that dream/passion/hobby.

Now back to the morning vs night exercise debate. Indeed, the times that I’ve tried night exercises, I end up sleeping much later because my mind seems to be more awake than usual after exercise.

Safe to say, my little experiment shows that it probably is worth trying morning exercise and keep the mind more awake throughout the day instead. 

Til next time then, looking forward to more weekday exercises and a healthier year ahead!

(Missed) Opportunities

9 03 2014


Timing matters, especially when it comes to opportunities. So at times, we remain hopeful of what is to come, to maintain that positive outlook in life that there will be many more opportunities in future.

Missed opportunities or opportunities missed. Both lead to the same endpoint, but the process through it differs. The former normally thought of as an issue with luck, that it was an accident to have missed that golden chance, while the latter blames oneself for the lack of foresight to capture the moment.


What happens when the slightest possibility of that opportunity was available yet grabbed away from you?

When timing is no longer the issue, nor fate or foresight.

When you’re told straight in the face that you can’t – because others aren’t willing to vouch for you so as to protect their own asses interests.

When part of your motivation is stripped away. How do you sustain yourself?

When you scream the loudest and all that is heard is silence?

When there doesn’t seem to have light at the end of the tunnel, as though you’re trapped in the tunnel instead?

Yet you don’t want to give up, not willing to let go yet.

Trying to hold on to whatever’s left, despite the multiple hurdles thrown at you.

But what if whatever’s left is also slowly slipping away? And the hurdles don’t stop coming?

Motivation depleting.

How would you sustain yourself?
