Emotional eating (part 2): How to beat the comfort food feeling!

Are you really hungry, or are you going through another emotional wack? Emotional eating is a little bit tricky! I totally get it if you tell me that you are tired and you just want to reach out for a little bit of comfort in something small and delicious like a piece of chocolate or a cookie…and to tell you the truth, life is too small for worrying about eating a tiny cookie. It’s the little pleasures in life that make our days special! You see, you are not going to book a first class ticket to heaven if you behave, because it’s not a sin to enjoy naughty food…What most likely makes your relationship with food a living hell is the guilt of overeating. The real problem with emotional eating is not what we eat, but how much we eat and our inability to take control.

Personal Diaries: Family Bond – Reconnecting with my those who matter

As my five-year trip away from my family came to a close, let me take a moment to reflect about family bond. A few years ago, I would never think how important is to stay connected with my roots, and most of all with my parents. When I left my home country five years ago in pursuit of my dreams, I knew that my life will be full of travel. I was excited to see the world and thrilled to meet people from all walks of life. Most of all, I wanted to live my own adventure; an adventure that was full of changes and life lessons. It was then that I realized the importance of family bond and love. A Constant Change You know what they say, “the only thing constant is change.” Today, everything changes so quickly, and if it happens to follow a similar career to mine,…
