How To Manage Your Time

Time management is such an important skill to have. Being able to effectively manage your time has the ability to affect your life in many positive ways, regardless of whether you are working, studying, etc.

I found that I was good at managing my time in high school when other students had to stay up late to finish their homework, but I was done before dinner and maintained good grades. Honestly, I just wanted to be able to relax for the rest of the night. Then I started working online and had to take my time management skills even further since the only thing that mattered was my productivity.

Now that you have some back-story, let’s get into it. I hope that the following tips will help you manage your time more effectively.  Continue reading

How To: Whiten Your Teeth With Activated Charcoal

Anyone who has ever touched activated charcoal knows that this stuff has a weird way of turning everything black. With this knowledge, you can understand why I was skeptical about using activated charcoal on my teeth. Aside from working as a whitener, activated charcoal also protects against gum disease and can help with internal toxins and food poisoning.

The cool thing about activated charcoal is that it isn’t absorbed by the body. It’s an absorbent substance that attracts toxins and chemicals as it passes through the body. You don’t ingest the charcoal during the teeth whitening process, but it’s not harmful if you do. Bye bye, hydrogen peroxide.

Carpe Momento

We often hear the famous expression carpe diem which means seize the day. But what makes a day? Those 24 hours between midnights? A sunrise until a sunset? The definition of a day defers between people and maybe that’s why seizing the day sounds a lot easier than I’ve found it to be.

What makes a day by everyone’s definition?

When I think about my days realistically, I realise I go through a variety of emotions between the time I get up until the time I’m back in bed, and to me those varying emotions make it difficult to grab the day in one bunch, to take it for what it’s worth. That’s why the phrase carpe momento has much more weight and resonance with me. It means seize the moment. Every moment we are alive and breathing is a miracle. I know that sounds cliche but until someone shows me otherwise, I stand by that idea.
