The New Meaning of “Productivity” (Adapting to Quarantine)

Unproductive, unmotivated, frustrated and very bored!

Yes, we hear and say these words now more than ever! It makes sense, though!

As we are in this current situation, we are all adapting to a new “normal”. Not all of us know how to work from home, cook many times a week, be self-disciplined and keep a focused mindset while being at home or in a “not work friendly” environment.

🔸The meaning of the word productivity is changing accordingly. Continue reading “The New Meaning of “Productivity” (Adapting to Quarantine)”

The Good Thing about Quarantine

Hello friends,

Thank you for visiting my blog.

I was watching one of Alain de Bottons videos, which I would highly recommend, and he said something very interesting I thought I would share it with you:

“…Almost all of us are addicts, not in terms of a substance you are taking. No! Addition is basically any pattern of behavior whereby you can’t stand to be with yourself and actually cannot stand the uncomfortable thoughts and emotions that come from being on your own and so therefore you can be addicted to almost anything as long as it can keep you away from yourself. Most of us are addicts! Thanks to all sorts of technologies and distractions, we can have a life where we are guaranteed not to spend any time with ourselves”.

Time for a New Routine

Dear Diary,

Although it took me a long to time to finally realize that I need to actually take action if I want to see a difference and change my old habits, I am glad that I am also ready for it. Ready to make effort, and to stick to my goal no matter what happens. I am ready for commitment and a strict discipline. Can I just point out that my “sudden realization” hit me while I was cutting onions to prepare tomato sauce for the pasta I had for lunch ☺️ Continue reading “Time for a New Routine”

Vegetables-Chicken Sandwich

Hello friends!

I hope you are all doing well!

With our “never-ending” to-do lists and our busy schedules, it’s very hard to allocate some time to cook: think about a meal idea, then look for the ingredients (that we 90% of the time don’t have 😅). I must say with college, I hardly find the time to grocery shop to begin with, mainly because I don’t specifically know what I need to buy, so I end up buying more than what I need  #thestruggle.
