Chasing Time aka Best Moms Hobby

Time flies…yes! Especially if you have kids and work full-time (at home and at the office). Ever wished you could add a few more hours to your day? Well, I know the feeling. There are two options: life is a breath of wind! Or, the hours never go by. It’s incredible how subjective perceptions of time may change. We often have the feeling that the 24 hours of our day are not enough to do what we have to do. Let’s analyze this perception; there are two macro groups: 1. your routine lacks good organization; 2. you are perfectly organized,[…]

When Chocolate Is Not Enough To Lift You Up

Chocolate helps, but it is not enough! Eating chocolate or having a drink in the evening as a treat because we need to pamper ourselves is not the solution. It’s just a temporary pleasure, but tomorrow everything will be the same, over and over again. Can you live only for a few treats? It’s nice to be gluttonous sometimes, but it should be a joy, not a compensation; otherwise, it won’t be enough, and it won’t be satisfying. When I was depressed because I was overwhelmed by work and family, I followed this advice: I made a list of what[…]

Gender Parity: Why Women Should Lead The Change

Gender parity is a statistical measure that compares a specific indicator among women with the same indicator among men. I strongly believe that none of us should be forced to follow precise models dictated by society. On the contrary, I think that each one of us must follow his or her own intuition and heart to live happy and fulfilled. In particular, women must become aware of the current lack of equality between men and women in the workplace and must change things. Have a look at this chart: Women will have to wait 217 years before they earn as[…]

Mom Guilt

Nearly 90 per cent of mothers feel guilty. Why? And How can we overcome this feeling? First of all, let me reassure you that Mom Guilt is real and very intense. So intense that can consume us. Mon Guilt is the feeling of doubt, anxiety, uncertainty, the idea of not being good enough or not being able to do enough. Guilt is a painful feeling and underestimating it is dangerous. When I think of my life before my children, it feels like another life! Or even another person’s life. I was focused on my personal and professional realization, on my[…]

Change Your Life

BY BROOK HAMPTON If you want to be successful in life, you have to listen to your inner voice. If you are not happy with your work, change it. If you want to spend more time with your children, yourself, your husband, change your daily routine. If you want to live an authentic life, find the courage to change things, starting with the job. How much time do you spend in the office every day? Exchange your time for money… is it gratifying? In the evening when everyone is asleep, and you go to bed, tired, and you think that[…]

Chaos or Control: the Theory of “Unpredictability” by Dechen

The society we live in imposes on us the following concept: for every action that we trust as right there will always be the same reaction. Therefore to get the right reaction, we must control every action. Let’s think about advertising, for example. Advertising is pretty manipulative so that we believe that a beautiful bag, a lovely sofa, a nice car or the pre-cooked food make everything just perfect! The perfect family follows specific rules and plays the game exactly as the others do. However, are you truly satisfied with this action/reaction model? Do you sometimes feel that you don’t[…]

Intuition vs Rational Choice

Rational decision-making consists of a sequence of actions planned to rationally achieve a desired solution. Intuitive decision making is the opposite and is based on instinct and gut reaction; it is subjective and unconscious. The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. — Albert Einstein Are you familiar with the feeling when something is wrong? Or when you have to make a decision; something pushes you towards one direction, but then you think twice, ponder and change your mind?[…]
