The Love Of Denim

A pair of denim jeans are a favourite choice of attire for millions. This popular indigo-coloured piece of clothing was born in 1873, courtesy a tailor named Jacob Davis, and Levi Strauss, owner of a fabric house.

Crafted for cowboys and miners, it became a choice for mail workers in the US looking for sturdy wear, something that can stand the constant wear and tear of a coal mine, for example. These were uncomfortable at that time, and no one wore them on the street.

The Hero

The concept of a hero is spellbinding, and this archetype has been in the human psyche since time immemorial, whether through verbal stories, or the earliest written epics.

The lifecycle of a hero is to overcome several obstacles to survive or to achieve specific goals. Heroes and superheroes are celebrated in all kinds of media. The most popular stories of epic adventures have the hero, who often fails, coming back spiritually richer in the end.

Albert Einstein
"We have been endowed with just enough intelligence to be able to see clearly just how utterly inadequate that intelligence is when confronted with what exists. If this humility could be imparted to everybody, the world of human endeavours would become more appealing."
The Existence of Round Planets

The life cycle of a planet usually begins when the gravity of the star attracts clouds of rocks and dust until it forms into a blob that attracts more matter towards its center.

Since gravity works in all directions equally, this is the reason why planets are round-shaped instead of any other form.

William James
“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”
Muhammad Ali
hated every minute of training, but I said, “Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.
Fear-setting

It is a decision-making tool for risky situations. The main point is that visualizing the worst-case scenarios lets you manage them rationally.

There are 3 stages in fear-setting for any decision:

  • Defining fears
  • Predicting the benefits of attempting an action
  • Calculating the costs of doing nothing.
Keep your resolutions manageable

One of the most important things when planning your new year is not trying to change too many things at once.

Focus on achieving one change that can then be turned into a habit, because once something is a habit you are likely to do it every day.

Begin to feel worthy by:

  1. Forgiving yourself for your past mistakes, acknowledging and accepting our flaws and deeds.
  2. Accept how you look, your laugh, your smile, your unique way of looking at the world. That’s what makes you special.
  3. Embrace your quirks and work towards enhancing your worldview.
  4. Do not criticise yourself when you experience emotional pain. Be kind to yourself.
  5. Connect with people who are supportive and healing.
  6. Have the courage to free yourself from society's rules and work towards being you.
Japan: ‘shrinrin-yoku’

Shrinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, was developed in the 1980s as a way to respond to the stresses of urban living.

It is all about getting out into nature. It can reduce your stress and boost your immune system.
