It´s no secret I love walking. Walking has several physical and mental benefits: reduces stress, controls blood sugar levels, boosts the immune system, burns fat and more.
You can lose body fat and get in shape through walking alone. Often, sedentary people choose intense workouts when they want to get in shape. Big mistake. It’s hard to stick to an intense routine if you’ve been out on the couch for a long time. You need a routine first. Intense routines come later.
It´s no secret I love Evernote, the place to organize your work, declutter your life, and remember everything. As you know, Evernote has endless applications, and I use it to deliver personalized training and meal plans, all over the world, and easily keep track of my clients´ daily progress.
I´m excited to announce my first fitness challenge on Evernote. This walking challenge will build discipline that will help you stay in shape…
Few weeks ago, my daily routine got badly disrupted, i went from sleeping by 10pm to sleeping at 4am, it took me so many years to overcome not sleeping at night and there i was slipping back into that disruptive routine. You see, ever since I made that decision last year November to shut down my PC by 7pm, and go to bed before 11pm, i found myself functioning at a higher level of productivity, i got more done within a month than i had in a year.
The goal for me was physical, spiritual and mental fitness and i wasn’t about to back down, but i was slipping so fast and it almost became a routine again. Quite a series of events had occurred within the past 6 months that have guided me on the journey to become a better person to myself and i am loving the new me to be honest. Let me tell you something good today:
Nobody can help you but YOURSELF!
Needless to say i had to put an end to the madness before i finally slipped away. I did and guess what? I woke up on the 1oth of April and said enough is enough. I got back on track despite sleeping late and waking up late as well. The universe did not let me down either, i got on my PC bright and work-ready to find my Chrome browser didn’t close correctly – meaning i had the option to restore my tabs or start afresh, What do you think i did?
The moral of this story is this: You see even though i tried so many tactics such as asking friends to wake me up before 7am, at the end of the day, i had to make the decision myself. Yes it is okay to be supported by friends, family and loved ones, but only YOU can make the decision to be saved, no one can decide that for you!

The WordPress Discover Page lives up to its name because it is one place I enjoy going to explore amazing bloggers, remember my last post talked about exploring to discover who we are.
Earlier this year I had told myself i wouldn’t like to miss any discover post or photo challenge anymore, sadly I still do, especially when I want to come up with a post at all cost, the inspiration runs away.
One thing has worked for me though, it might work for you too, I visit daily post to see what the week’s challenge theme is, I note it somewhere in my thoughts, and the most miraculous thing always happen when I don’t sweat about coming up with my post response to the challenge.
What happens you may ask? I get presented with an experience that serves as my appropriate interpretation to the challenge.
I engage in public speaking with youths on using ICT as a tool for self empowerment and the first question i get is how do i make money, i always wonder if it is wrong for me to tell them they would most likely fail at their 1st attempts or not, sighss! Anyway thanks to Jessica for this post, how do we succeed if we don’t fail, in failing and learning to plan and strategize, we become better and then become the greatest.
A few days ago on CNBC, I saw this article on a problem especially rampant in academia, and one that I’ve talked about on numerous occasions: the perception that successful academics never fail in their work. Every manuscript is accepted! Every grant proposal funded! Jobs are thrown at them. This (mis)perception is very much in line with one of my primary streams of research on how people engage in impression management/identity curation in digital spaces. On social media, this is often framed as FOMO (fear of missing out)—we see everyone around us living glamorous social, work, and family lives while we sit at home on a Friday night.
In academia, this framing of success can be problematic at multiple levels. First, for students just starting out, they may not be properly prepared for dealing with failure—which is more common than success on several metrics. If they assume success, the failures…
