We aim to get prepared to work and live in a global world but sometimes we miss how to deal with cultural differences and to communicate accordingly. 🤔
To help you to tackle this topic I have two recommendations:

What is a cultural shock/miscommunication you have faced in your career? And how did you deal with it?
Sharing is caring 😊
The beauty of finding joy through creativity isn't about achieving the perfect end result.
It's about the journey of self-expression and exploring different perspectives and thereby finding inspiration, healing, helping others, learning and personal transformation.
Algirdas Gataveckas thanks for the inspiration & creativity lightning! Coat hanger is amazing - leave me 2 hooks :)
Why do you even wake up @5AM?
Early mornings for me used to be :
A. Stressful trips to the airports, while haven’t got enough sleep.
B. Going fishing with my dad (these were awesome but still I would wake up all triggered and exhausted.)
C. Trips to the hospital.
So far you should have already got the point that early mornings for me = no fun.
What my early mornings are now?
I take my time slowly, because everybody else is still sleeping. I make myself a cup of coffee, cook some light breakfast and listen to some audiobooks or podcasts, depending on the situation. Before I got my knee injured, I also used to jog in the morning.(The views would be even better than in the photo, trust me;))
As simple as it gets. I hate to rush somewhere, for example: school, work, whatever the case might be. I choose to enjoy my time, because good morning sets a tone for the day. Main pros:
A. You feel motivated. It’s an awesome feeling to have already done much more than your friends or other companies.
B. You learn much more about discipline. Discipline might be a huge factor in your success. F.e: you won’t be amused by that sweet donut at the coffee shop, might save some extra $ or kilos;) There is a quote by Jocko Willink(ex navy seal) - “ Discipline equals freedom.”
C. Productivity level. For some, it might be a huge game changer. Personaly, when I started rising early, it became much easier to finish the tasks in shorter amount of time. However, you should test it and then make conclusions. I just love the idea of testing and learning. Don’t be afraid to sacrifice one week;)
When not to get up early?
PRIORITISE SLEEP HOURS. Some people need 6 hours, others can’t live without 8. Basicaly, don’t sacrifice your sleep hours, so you can rise early. Hell no.
That’s the only situation that I don’t find benefits of waking up early.
As the saying goes : early bird gets the worm.
Thanks for your time❤️
I was born in a big family which is extremely good interaction with relatives in the countryside of Turkey. I and my family members always gathering for talking and listening to each other, traveling and having a wonderful time in our amazing natural environment of my hometown. Now I realized that there is one common thing that brings us together. There had to be a great, valid and valuable reason to meet. Somehow, when my elders would like to meet, they always appoint a place for eating. So, food has the power of integrative element to make people together. That's the reason why I opened a food blog on Instagram (@naturaltouch_dogaldokun).
I always feel cool when I meet with people and talk with them on how to live our life better. To do that, food is a nice and valuable reason to gather. We need time to listen and understand each other. Food is not an instant activity. In fact, we have time to fill our stomachs and tell our stories to each other to feed our souls with new experiences. Besides, try to taste new and clean meals is a wonderful opportunity to appeal your delight of taste. Wish to discover the meaning of foods!😋
