I don’t know how many times I’ve witnessed the following scene at any gym: A committed couple comes in to work out together. Not to lift weights or do resistance training, but to hop on a machine and jog, stride, or bike their way towards… well, a screen. They both look unhappy and robotic. About fifteen to thirty minutes later, they complete their...

Are you forcing yourself to do work you don’t like? Most people do, and it’s not because they want to its because they think they have no choice. I’m here to tell you that there’s always a choice. Not because I’m trying to be smart or do I have a ‘perfect’ life but just to expand your awareness a little so you can be aware of choices you didn’t think...

I had no idea moving to China would give me nearly 2 years of a dating free life. During the first 12 months I didn’t get so much as a kiss from a guy. I don’t think that had happened since I was 16.
