Blog | 3 Ways to Improve Your(short-term) Happiness #W2TM

“It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.” -Eckhart Tolle

  1. focus on each moment. take a completely different route to work. eat something totally new. start a conversation with a complete stranger. be spontaneous. see if you can do this exercise once per week. it’s refreshing and reminds you that being adventurous can be safe as well as fun.
  2. ask yourself real questions and try not to lie. Look at your life. are the goals that you’ve made for yourself still worth keeping? if you’re in school, ask yourself if you’re still interested in your major. if you’re married or in a relationship, ask yourself if that person still makes you happy. do the things/people in your life uplift you or bring you down most often?
  3. just focus on your breathing. do this exercise once per day: take 3, or as many as you deem necessary, deep breathes with slow exhales.  it’s a fantastic way to bring you back into the present moment.

Blog | 10 Things One Should Say More Often #W2TM

  • Nothing

sometimes the best possible thing to say is nothing at all

  • Movie Quotes

easy way to inject some fun into a conversation is to quote popular movie lines

  • I Understand/Feel You

rather than seeing every disagreement as an opportunity to get fired up and argue, look to understand where they are coming from. you can still have a constructive conversation/debate, but a key element to doing this effectively is to approach it with respect rather than anger

  • My Bad

if something was your fault, just identify that it was, and apologize

  • “I’ll just have water…”

don’t be afraid to make the healthier choice

  • I Appreciate you/Thank You

thank your bus driver, taxi driver, waiter, etc. whenever you can.

  • I Believe in You

whether you fully grasp what another individual is striving for or not, don’t be afraid to give them some encouragement

  • This is for you/I was thinking about you

it could be as simple as picking up lunch for a friend

  • Learn from This

if someone you are close to is going through a tough time, be that comforting shoulder that reminds them of the bigger picture

  • Hi

you may come across some awkward moments and uncomfortable reactions while doing this, but you may also be pleasantly surprised by how much this can brighten the day of some people

How To Prevent Positive Habit Changes from Being Diverted #W2TM

Many times when we try to make a good change in our lives, it gets derailed early on by something out of our control.

Let’s say you start a diet, and your daughter makes some great vegan cupcakes and you want to support her efforts, and so you eat some … and this exception causes you to say, “screw it” and you eat some other unhealthy foods later in the day, and then the next day.

Or you’re trying to think positively, and so you go out of your way to be nice to someone with whom you’re not on good terms … and they snub you, causing you to go down a spiral of negative thoughts.

How do you stop the negative spiral? How do you stop the slippery slope?

By having a more flexible idea of what your habit change is.

The problem is that we often have an ideal habit change: we’re going to start this new diet and be perfect at it and all will go well and we’ll be healthy and trim and sexy.

And of course the actual path is much more bumpy than that, and so this ideal expectation is never met. Changes never go the way we think they will. Our fantasies about our new habits don’t come true. And we feel horrible about that, and get derailed.

The problem isn’t the event that derailed us, that caused our perfect habit to go bad … the problem is our ideal about how the change will go. The ideal is just a fantasy, made up in our heads. It’s not real. It’s not realistic.

What’s more realistic? Reality. Instead of holding onto the fantasy you have about the change, let that go and embrace the reality of the change. Be open to whatever happens, be curious what it’s like, and actually be present and observe the change as it happens.

Did someone not respond positively like you’d hoped they would? That’s OK, because while the ideal didn’t happen, you knew that things would turn out differently than the ideal, and so instead of being disappointed you’re curious about what happened, why, how you react, and how you can respond appropriately to this change in plans.

Letting go of the ideal, you smile, observe yourself, and think, “What now? What’s the way to respond appropriately to this new situation?”

You’re flexible. You embrace the reality. You move through the ever changing landscape with a shifting plan, and a smile.

Blog | Why I Feel Kanye West’s Next Move HAS to be a Strong One #W2TM

kanye west has been having himself a very busy 2015 thus far, what with performing at the Grammys, executive producing Rihanna’s forthcoming LP, as well as working on his own LP, he added onto that already impressive list of accomplishments today. West premiered the entirety of his 1st collection with Adidas at New York Fashion Week, debuted the first track from his currently nameless album with Chicago artist Vic Mensa & Sia called, “Wolves,” Ye also took to the stage for a live performance at the 1st Annual Roc City Classic event in New York City, which co-stared NBA all-star Kevin Durant.

amongst this large amount of content revealing i’m sure Kanye felt as though there would be nothing ANYONE could do to take anything away from this day being 100% Yeezy…except 1 person: Drake.

excluding a slight return from a short hiatus from social media Drake has been relatively quiet regarding the details on his new music much to the chagrin of his fans until tonight. Drake took to his twitter to post a link to his new mixtape available here on iTunes, “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.” on the surface this doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, artists release dates overlap quite often, but for Kanye it’s a little different. Kanye previously said he “let” Drake have last summer but reassured that going forward he would reclaim the throne all powered by his vision. this somewhat surprise release from Drake puts pressure on Ye for a number of reasons.

Given his antics all throughout 2013-2014 on the Yeezus Tour, his recent unveiling of his first shoe collaboration with Adidas, the Yeezy Boost 750 being met with a bittersweet response by the public, and the expected but still alienating swerve in musical direct as of late Kanye has become damaged goods in some peoples eyes and the last thing he needs on top of getting a lukewarm response to his 2nd Official Single is to have it be forgotten and become lost in the shuffle due to most hip-hop fans almost involuntary urge to quote Drake lyrics on Twitter and Instagram. a devastating blow like this could threaten West’s momentum he was working so hard on building going into 2015, leaving Drake with the ball in his court along with the satisfaction that he too can break the internet just as quickly as Kanye West can if not quicker. now i understand that 1 SINGLE PERSON can’t possibly own a day and everyone else should know to hold off, you could say Kanye served the culture for the morning & most of the day, and Drake handled the graveyard shift. but i still feel in term’s of making an impact, regardless of Drake “being on” GOOD Music along with any artist that creates good music according to Kanye, Drake may be a few steps ahead of Ye on the surface having used left moves.

what are your thoughts on Kanye’s recent music as well as his clothing line with Adidas? do you think Drake can keep his hot streak going thru 2015? let us know, #W2TM

Than you finally a full version to Manolo’s new song Gun Fu if you follow him on IG you may have heard a couple snippets of this. He has a lot of good music he been giving out in very small dosages which makes the “Concrete Rose EP” even more worth it. This is another creative banger where he paints us a picture.
