I was asked a question the other day ‘Do you think burning out is an emotional response or it can be managed?”

This is such a good question because in this fast-paced, technology driven world, burning out is hard to avoid. However, is it part of a cycle or if we do it right this is preventable and we can maintain sustainable passion and enthusiasm towards our everyday lives?

Increasingly, I have become a believer of – constant soul replenishment. This is where we build a system to refuel our souls daily to help us outlast this marathon we call life. Being time poor and fatigue always seems to stand in the way of any recharging efforts, but if you spend 30 minutes in the morning dazing into the distance or sitting in traffic, you have time to replenish.

Here are a few things to add to your morning rush that sets the tone right for the day. Some of them, you can multitask too.

So, kids, the moral of the story is – the value of a handwritten message from the heart, is priceless.

I may be based in a tropical country, but my buying habits are deeply affected by the changing seasons. Not because our weather changes, more so the shop windows changes. Now as I see cosy knits and comfy coats fill up shop windows – which I have no idea why since our weather is 30°C all year round.

What makes a marriage perfect? Is it how opposite you are, or how similar you are? I think if you want the relationship enough, both approaches could work. Personally, I am very opposite to my partner, which was a tough mix initially. But eventually, as we learned to communicate and work together, the resulting synergy is something I would never trade.
