Give Eating More Meaning

Let’s face it; when we are feeling run down or sick, it usually comes on the heels of not eating properly. Either eating unhealthy foods or not eating enough by skipping meals are the main culprits of a body depleted of its nutrients. In the history of modern civilization, we have never had more food available to us. We are eating more than ever before, yet, we’re starved. Our bodies are screaming at us to…

25 years of time well spent 

A Letter from Dovico Co-Founder Diane Doucet How time flies when you’re having fun!  From a startup in 1993 to a well-established company today, I’ve had the pleasure of being there for the ups and the downs, and all the curves along the way.    I had no clue back then what would become of Dovico or where it would bring us, but I’m happy to say that it’s a place where I feel like home…

GET MORE TIME SERIES #14: Follow Your Heart

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards, so you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in the future.” – Steve Jobs We are all victims of not living in the present from time to time. We waste so much of our days stuck in the past holding grudges, blaming others or playing the victim. We waste so much time in the future riddled with anxiety…

GET MORE TIME SERIES #13: Can You Say No?

Why do we abuse ourselves by doing things that do not feed us? Why do we allow others to influence us into doing things that we just don’t wanna do? We waste so much of our lives living a life that is not ours, doing things that aren’t us. We have all had them, the infamous “bosshole”. You know, that boss who expects you to do everything at any time and done to perfection. Perhaps they bully…

GET MORE TIME SERIES #12: Automaticity Rules!

“Automaticity is the ability to do things without occupying the mind with the low-level details required, allowing it to become an automatic response pattern or habit. It is usually the result of learning, repetition, and practice” – Wikipedia Automaticity saves energy because it does not require the use of your prefrontal cortex, the part of your brain that consumes 25% of your total energy. So putting things that do not serve you on automatic will save you…

GET MORE TIME SERIES #10: Accepting You

Why do we do the things we do? Do we do the things we do for us or do we do them for somebody else? When you dig deep, you will find that a majority of the things you do is for someone else, to make someone else happy, to be accepted, to be loved. It is normal to want to be a part of the tribe, to conform and to be useful but when…

I Can’t Vs. I Won’t

Get More Time Series #9 What if every time you said you can’t, you instead replaced it with “I won’t”. Change “I can’t lose weight because I can’t move like I did when I was younger.” to “ I won’t lose weight because I am not willing to take a small walk every night until I can move.”. Change “I can’t get a better job because I don’t have the experience to get one.” to…

GET MORE TIME SERIES #8: Throwing Up The Barriers

Don’t we put up barriers every time we dream of something big? I don’t have enough money. I don’t have enough people. I don’t have enough patience. I don’t have enough time. I just can’t-do it. We waste so much energy telling ourselves that we cannot do something that if we channeled it correctly, we would probably have it done! We live our lives by constantly creating barriers that limit our success. Excuses that we…

GET MORE TIME SERIES #7: Emotional Checks

Unlike the animal kingdom who are not self-aware, we humans can be our worst enemy by creating emotions that are not really warranted. We create anger when we are sad and we create doubt when we are happy. When we become introspective, we get confused as we cannot get away from the emotion that we think we feel. This self-consuming emotional storm festers until we can barely function and we lash out, or worse, shut…

Walking Off The Stress

Get More Time Series #6 We waste so much time being stressed out. When we get overworked at home, at work, or both, we tend to think that we can work ourselves out of the jam.
