It's ok to have far from everything figured out. Life really surprises sometimes. Lately I'm learning to accept plans are ironically not always a good plan.
I don't remember where I read this, but the idea isn't solely mine ~ that's also the beauty of it; allowing life to get to you and shape your path just as much as you do intentionally.

If you are like me on a quest for mental clarity and self improvement as tools to live a more meaningful life, Nathaniel Drew and Matt D'Avella are two key players you need to look up on YouTube!
They helped me grow in so many ways.
Intentionality. I think one of the steps towards mental clarity in an ever-evolving and fast paced world is to put intention and involvement in what you are doing now.
I often find myself distracted from what I'm doing. This is normal, society is designed this way. But does it mean we should accept it as a fatality?
Lately I've been trying to take the time for small things and to fully dedicate to them while I'm doing them. Pouring hot water over my coffee, stretching, smelling the Autumn air of the morning here in Paris. Can be anything, really. As long as you allow yourself to connect with your senses for a moment.
Change in life does not come without change in choice. Big changes in life may cause a lot of stress and we tend to avoid that making compromises. This is not inherently wrong, stress is never good for you, but neither is avoiding change.
Losing weight and improving your overall well-being is a perfect example of compromises with change. You have a very clear goal, but either make too many/wrong compromises or commit entirely and burn-out from stress.
Here are some simple incremental compromises to increase your life quality and get healthier:
1. Avoid stress, everything malfunctions while we are stressed out.
2. Start intermittent fasting. Ease out to it, start with coffee with a teaspoon of butter/coconut/mct oil in the morning to stay satiated and skip lunch. That alone would be huge for your body and mental clarity.
3. Eat less processed foods. Choose high quality ingredients and make real food at home or eat out at places that do.
4. Exercise. Even 30mins a day, three times a week makes a huge difference, especially when done while fasting.
5. Break free of sugar/fructose addiction. This one is huge both in effort required and health/mental benefits once you do skip sweet foods.
