Understanding Motivation | Five Minute Friday

EHave you ever been un-motivated? Today, let us talk about that because this is something that happens to everyone, even myself. Motivation is not just a problem where you need to work harder or apply more will power. It is full of information – it is telling you something. Your lack of motivation may be because you are not connected with who you are trying to serve. You are not clear about how you can help your customer. If you do not believe something is going to work for you, you will not be able to follow through, because you have already taken yourself out of the game. Perhaps, you don’t have a goal yet. In that case, if you don’t have an ambition or a purpose, then you need to figure out that something that you want to do then you will be able to start moving towards it. It may take some reflections, internalizations, talking to people, and learning what you like and don’t like. You can then start taking action by doing these little steps and having that momentum. It could ...

Living in Portugal For Three Months | Five Minute Friday

EToday’s Five-Minute Friday episode is about the time when I moved my family – my wife and my two little kids – to Portugal, in the spring of 2019. We moved to Portugal for three months were we ended up living in a town called Atouguia Da Baleia, near one of the surfing capitals of Portugal – Peniche. It was pretty close to the beach. We were in this tiny village because it happened to have another digital nomad friend. She happened to mention that place before we were going. It was just perfect. She had an AirBnb rental where we stayed at and to add to that, she let us use her car. Everything worked out. What was it like for our family when we moved there? From St. Louis, we flew to Lisbon. We then had about an hour drive to this small village of about ten thousand people. We haven’t really lived anywhere that small. It was a quiet and chill place, pretty different from living in Lisbon. Lisbon, on the other hand, is a digital nomad and entrepreneurship hotspot. There are a lot...

What I Learned From Fasting | Five Minute Friday

EGhandi Fasting In the last five years, I have gone about forty days without food, mostly just consuming water. Some of these fasts are short, just two sleeps – basically a day of fasting – some of them are long, having gone for as long as eight days. I started experimenting with fasting when I lived in Bali, because a lot of people do juice fasts there.Bali has abig, healthy-eating culture and I wanted to see what fasting was like. How muchcan you know about yourself if youhave never gone without food? I startedexperimenting with baby steps. I started with one day, and then worked up from there. Recently Ive been doing 36 hour fasts every Monday and I noticed some patterns in the experience. I just want to share with you, if you haven’t done any fasting, what you might expect, or if you have done fasting, what you may have experienced, whether it be similar of different. I needed less sleep. If I normally sleep eight hours, but while fasting, I wake up feeling refreshed after six and a half hours. I also feel very light. I save time and become more productive. In the first couple of days into the fast, my mind is generally working really well. If you couple that with not having to take time to eat and brush your teeth, and just all those things you are saving a couple of hours each day, so you end being very productive in the early parts of the fast. It can feel very fatiguing. Some people say they maintain high energy levels for an entire fast. I experienced that I was very lethargic after three to five days of fasting. I find it really hard to physically move my body and I just felt weaker and this process of your body wherein it is somewhat starting to eat itself off. Autophagy happens, or when your body gets rid of older cells and cleans it out. You really feel amazing after, but, during that process it is a very tiring feeling, at least, for me. Food starts to smell really good! My kid was eating a rice cracker and I thought it smells amazing! Of course, that first bite of food after a fast is so much more delicious. Like many things, absence makes the heart grow fonder. My body temperature goes down. I will be wearing sweatshirt and pants because I get the shivers. I think that is because I eat a pretty high-sugar low-glycemic index diet, I have a lot of fuel and my body temperature runs pretty hot, but then when I am fasting, it gets cold. Working out becomes hard. I tried to do some work outs, runs, frisbee, and dancing, and it is all just really hard. I would expect that maybe, without the lightness that I feel, that sometimes when I run, I feel really good. However, I feel physically willing myself each footstep to happen or if you somehow forget that you are working out, for few seconds, you quickly remember because your body is just complains. Fasting should be a time of not pushing yourself because it would be harder to recover. Change in body odor. One really interesting thing that I noticed is that I smell really bad. It’s a totally different smell from my normal body odor and maybe perhaps that is from the autophagy. Itis hard to ramp up eating after fasting. You really have to ease into it and sometimes it takes two full days before you can eat certain complex food. I usually start with a banana or some juice. You can actually feel the food, sitting in there, in your stomach, before your digestive system realizes that there is food. Losing the anxiety from lack food. Besides doing it for the health benefits, that you can feel good and have clarity and productivity, one of the best things that I have noticed is that just not needing food. I always had a lot of anxiety about not eating. I always had food with me because, what if I get hungry? Now, if I miss a meal, or a day of meal, I know that I am going to be fine. I may be a bit hungry but that is okay because in days that I eat three times a day,

In the first couple of days into the fast, my mind is generally working really well. If you couple that with not having to take time to eat and brush your teeth, and just all those things you are saving a couple of hours each day, so you end being very productive in the early parts of the fast. It can feel very fatiguing. Some people say they maintain high energy levels for an entire fast. I experienced that I was very lethargic after three to five days of fasting. I find it really hard to physically move my body and I just felt weaker and this process of your body wherein it is somewhat starting to eat itself off. Autophagy happens, or when your body gets rid of older cells and cleans it out. You really feel amazing after, but, during that process it is a very tiring feeling, at least, for me. Food starts to smell really good! My kid was eating a rice cracker and I thought it smells amazing! Of course, that first bite of food after a fast is so much more delicious. Like many things, absence makes the heart grow fonder. My body temperature goes down. I will be wearing sweatshirt and pants because I get the shivers. I think that is because I eat a pretty high-sugar low-glycemic index diet, I have a lot of fuel and my body temperature runs pretty hot, but then when I am fasting, it gets cold. Working out becomes hard. I tried to do some work outs, runs, frisbee, and dancing, and it is all just really hard. I would expect that maybe, without the lightness that I feel, that sometimes when I run, I feel really good. However, I feel physically willing myself each footstep to happen or if you somehow forget that you are working out, for few seconds, you quickly remember because your body is just complains. Fasting should be a time of not pushing yourself because it would be harder to recover. Change in body odor. One really interesting thing that I noticed is that I smell really bad. It’s a totally different smell from my normal body odor and maybe perhaps that is from the autophagy. Itis hard to ramp up eating after fasting. You really have to ease into it and sometimes it takes two full days before you can eat certain complex food. I usually start with a banana or some juice. You can actually feel the food, sitting in there, in your stomach, before your digestive system realizes that there is food. Losing the anxiety from lack food. Besides doing it for the health benefits, that you can feel good and have clarity and productivity, one of the best things that I have noticed is that just not needing food. I always had a lot of anxiety about not eating. I always had food with me because, what if I get hungry? Now, if I miss a meal, or a day of meal, I know that I am going to be fine. I may be a bit hungry but that is okay because in days that I eat three times a day,
