Sunday morning not feeling very insightful. However, sharing a pic of my first surf & turf. Shrips are sourced from, a local in-land shrimp farm - highly recommend them if you are in EU - they taste as good as in Thailand, and come fresh vs boiled. Any food picture from anyone else?

I lived in Fukuoka, Japan for 2 years to launch my own business there. I also had plenty of fun while I was there. Here’s an insider look of Fukuoka if you are thinking about traveling to Japan after the restrictions are lifted -

SURFING IN LITHUANIA Yes, we do have waves in Lithuania. And yes, it's a very good place to start learning or improve your surfing skills. Sharing some useful information: The place >> Melnragė To check forecast >> Facebook groups & pages to follow: Lithuania surf >> Surf Style LT >> Spotas >> Banglente >> Podcast about waves (in LT) >> There are few spots in Melnrage where you can rent a surfboard and a wetsuit or take a surf lesson.

Why are we afraid of change in our work or life? 🔸 #3 insight: Adapt change We all strive towards outcomes at work, at home and in our communities because we believe they will make us happy. It might be a good job, a loving relationship, money or possessions. It might be better health or spiritual peace of mind. Let's call all of them our lovely "Cheese". And it can feel wonderful when we eventually get our cheese. Then, we hold to it tightly and dream it will never end. Yet life is constantly changing and sometimes it blocks (or even undoes) things we expect, feel we deserve or have worked so long and so hard to accomplish. But because we fear starting again, looking foolish or that we might end up somewhere worse, we often don’t want to change when things begin changing around us. I always felt very confident about changes around and even called it my comfort zone. Yet life kicked my butt recently at work multiple times. I wasn't growing so fast I was used to. Then, it begun: - I denied it's my problem. - I was frustrated and started to blame others. - I held to what was, instead of what simply now is. - And I wasn't ready to look for a new cheese. I'm so lucky to be surrounded by emphatic people who felt my frustration. Immediately offered their help and it took me 24 hours to find a new cheese. I'm sharing this with you and hope it will help like it did to me. Maybe not today, tomorrow, or even this year, but knowing this makes us as individuals stronger. Change is inevitable. Anticipate it, adapt to it, learn to embrace and enjoy it. Do so and you won’t just suffer less stress and unhappiness, you’ll enjoy more success and fulfillment in every part of your life and your work. 🔸 Book that highlights this issue is "Who Moved My Cheese?" by the best-selling author, Dr. Spencer Johnson. I dedicate this to Ingrida Ziliute, who helped me to move on.
How the comfort zone is ruining your life? 🔸 #4 insight: Comfort zone This is so known topic that I even doubted to write it. But the more I think about it, the more I understand how close and yet so far this topic is for me. We all know that there are two groups for all the physical things we can do in our life: - Inside the comfort zone: takes little or no effort to do, feels comfortable, no mental resistance. For example, for most of the people driving is completely in their comfort zone. They drive to work, shop, home. And since driving is so easy, at one point or another, your brain went and subconsciously placed it inside the comfort zone, so you don’t really think about doing it before you do it, it’s just something you do. - Outside. Okay, how about going for a run? A lot harder, isn’t it? It’s more physically strenuous, requires more preparation, it makes you lose your breath or sweat, and if you haven’t ran for a while, you’ll probably be really sore the next day. And because you know running is physically strenuous and hard to do, your brain placed it outside the comfort zone. The further outside the comfort zone something is, the more mental resistance there is in the way of doing that thing. Zone also always shrinking, if you don’t do anything about it. Unless you venture at least a little bit beyond the borders of the comfort zone, it will get smaller and harder to escape. And this is something that most people have experienced in their lives, whether they are aware of it or not. In my own life this happens all the time, like when I was 18 and got my driving licence, I was so excited at that point, driving was so easy to me and felt very good about it. But since I had no car, lived in the city centre, my brain moved it outside the comfort zone and now I’m really afraid to do it. Of course, brain generates to me all necessary arguments: eco friendly, avoiding traffic jams, walking is good for you. In reality, I’m just staying away from what’s outside my comfort zone now. This gets even more serious. You know that phrase “Men aren’t taking their health seriously”? I look at myself and I see that I feel more comfortable being sick, suffer pain than go to a doctor. This is because my brain tells me “this is something common, this will stop one day, think of all that wasted time, it will cost a lot, they can’t help anyway” instead of fixing situation I'm in. Today my back was injured while playing volleyball. I was laying on my back at home in deep pain and wishing it would stop. Then, I started coughing. It made my back pain even worse, like needles crossing me with every cough. Then I realised I was coughing for 2 years already. This is not something new, it just wasn’t in the circle of something easily achievable. I was so angry on this whole situation that my brain just wanted to cut it all now. Do something! And I did. Today I registered to check my back, my knees and elbows that were in pain from playing 5 times a week. And my coughing. And wrote this post that I was doubting about.

Gabija Grušaitė on Managing your career as an artistAuthor of Stasys Šaltoka, Co-Founder of Qoorio & Vieta3 months ago
Why artists are poor? I have received quite a few talk requests here on Qoorio from young people aspiring to create. One of the most pressing question for young creative is the managment of time, since most juggle between jobs and projects trying to survive and practise art at the same time. There is no easy answer to this question as we are products of our society, shaped by shared values, public policies and peer pressure. This is an interesting interview exploring the subject of art funding, poverty among creators and public notion on what is good art.

It is the first generation (or second at best) of wealth creation in Lithuania and the ones who got their fortune are still unwilling to loose control or hire someone to manage their assets. On the other hand, those who offer wealth management services more often than not are learning by doing.

Several things you should know about the Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, ARFID. It is not "just" a picky eating. This eating disorder causes great psychological and physical stress, people may gag or choke if trying to swallow something that causes them anxiety - foods of specific texture, smell, appearance, or something they choked on before. Because of this people may avoid eating situations all together, like cafeterias or parties. This disorder may be the cause of serious weight loss of failure to grow. People with this disorder are not concerned with their weight or body image as often is the case with other eating disorders. It may occur in people of all ages and genders. Along with this disorder, people may experience anxiety, mood disorders, symptoms from autism spectrum. Cognitive behavioral therapy is effective method of help - it focuses on exposure and response prevention.

6 things I did regularly during the MCO and CMCO period to stay sane. a) Learned how to cook. Can't believe it took a forced measure to stay at home to actually learn how to make my mum's cooking. Excellent mother-daughter bonding time and they get a helping hand too which reduces their stress of cooking everyday. b) Binge watch stand up comedy and rom com movies and series on Netflix. I was very much intrigued and impressed by spanish based shows as they had a strong independent and women empowerment based storylines which was refreshing. No topic was a taboo for them be it same sex relationships, sex before marriage, never feeling the pressure of being married as a woman which I think a lot women today need as inspiration to focus solely on themselves. c) Went on long drives in my car. We are not chickens meant to stay cooped up at home. Just get in your car and go for a long drive with your fav music on. You will feel 100% again :) d) Regularly scheduled zoom night hang outs with colleagues and friends. This gives you something to look forward to on a weekly basis while checking in on each other and keeping each other sane. e) This one is my favourite. Use the time at home to mask and love your skin. Put on a face mask while you're working. Your skin will love you and your mood will be lifted with the results. f) Gardening and plant shopping. I know almost everyone on my social feed has taken this up as a hobby but the reason is very clear. Plants are pretty, provide oxygen and they are highly therapeutic :)

Research. How does the gut communicate with the brain? It does, in case you wonder, there are chains of neurons sending signals from the gut to the brain and back. Researchers found that if the gut lacks bacteria, specific neurons become more active and brain "makes" the food move slower through the intestines. These neurons, in turn, depend on other neurons that "smell" the fatty acids that are produced by the gut bacteria. What can I say. The Gut is an amazing creation. Perhaps one day you may truly say that gut rules you, and it will not be a joke anymore.

1 week with no social media: So here it is, my social media fast has begun ... and it is hard to completly be off!! I started at 60% off, now I am at 90% off. Why not go 100% off? Work. I found myself answering some messages, going to facebook for creating the private group coaching for work, instgram to screen shot one of my client to put on my portfolio... Not the social media fast I expected. The objective is to really let go of it this week. However, here are the short term impact: 1. Several Times I have found myself looking for IG on my phone, I was amazed that it was an automatic response to boredom. 2. My head feels less full of "have to post" thoughts. 3. I feel less anxiety related to "subscribers expectations" 4. More time to think. 5. I realized that I was not suffering from FOMO ( fear of missing out) The reason I am doing this fast is to recharge and have more time to strategize for the priority and higher value work. This week was ok, but can go better. See you in a week for another update. 😉

Research. How different smells are recognized in the brain? How do we know if two smells are different or similar? Apparently, nose acts as sort of chromatography analyzer, where smells are differentiated based on their chemical content. But the olfactory cortex is much more dependent on how and when the smells were experienced, and here the smells are grouped based on memories.

15 days of Social Media Fast : I have heard from many people I admire that as an entrepreneur you need your thinking time. To free my mind and my daily schedule, I decided for june to do a Social Media Fast and documenting the process. Results for this week: 1. Mind a lot less full of stuff 2. More focused on what matters for my business 3. Some breakthroughs 4. More present with people around me, as I don't really ise my phone when I am with people. 5. Confirming that I am in control 6. Still having automatic reaction to check my phone Again, for work I am sometimes required to check my social I can't seem to be 100% off. It has become part of my life and as long as I have an internet connection, I still use my phone ... 🧘‍♀️

Was watching ‘The Half of It’ on Netflix last night (great show!) and a particular quote stood out: “... the difference between a good painting and a great painting, is typically five strokes. And they are usually the five boldest strokes in the painting. The question of course, is which five strokes?” So often in meeting startup founders, we talk about how to do X, Y and Z aimed at improving certain metrics. While incremental change is good, it’s often the big moves and pivots that make a difference, e.g. Slack started as a gaming company. If you’re a founder, what’s your bold stroke? Are you prepared to ruin a good company to become a great one?

Hello, dear qooriors! I am pleased to join this human-to-human learning community. I live in Arusha, Tanzania, and I organize wild safaris in my country. I will be sharing a few facts & insights from a wild & beautiful Tanzania. Did you know that the largest African land mammal elephant (Loxodonta Loxodonta) has a very good sense of smell, good memory, however poor eyesight? They spent 18 hours a day eating. The group is led by an oldest cow known as the matriarch. They live 60 years to 70 in captivity. The photo below is the one I recently took in Serengeti National Park.
