So, are you looking for some fun stuff to kill your boredom during your free time? Is there something you wish you could spend your free time doing that added net worth to your name? You know, I've spent most of my time to figuring out what exactly I want for my life. And it's sad to say the majority of my time is wasted. I turn on TV or Facebook, sometimes medicate myself with alcohol just to burn time which is complete a waste. After a hundred mistakes and long-time-research, I found out there are three most important things you need to start spending your time on, if you are serious about becoming a winner in the game of life like I do.

No.1 Exercise
I know this first task is difficult but trust me, with so much free time on our hands we need to have energy to be active during this time. It's actually been proven by studies that people who workout have more energy throughout the day. If you don't have energy, you are going to spend most of your precious free time on effortlessly things like Netflix or gaming. A simple workout program like starting strength is enough for you to get started on improving your fitness and gaining more energy throughout the day. If you are wondering how do I start my workout. Well, I am a huge cellphone user and that is why I prefer using technology to help me keep in shape and motivate myself. Yes, I am using an app called a 30 Days Challenge. The app is free and have specific workout that you need to do everyday for thirty days. The idea of the app is you can't escape it as it is always in your phone, and the best part is each daily workout takes only 10-15 minutes, so a great one for daily conditioning that delivers surprisingly effective results. 

No.2 Reading
I know you think this is clich. But hear me out, most of the stuff you are learning in school is not really helpful at all (or outdated). Please don't get me wrong, I am trying to tell that the large majority of information you are learning in school will not be used once you graduate. In my experience, real life knowledges like managing finances, social skills, dating and communication skills are basically not existed in school. A famous entreprenuer once said you can be an expert in any field by reading just three books on the subject. By simply reading three books you will know more about any subject than 80% of people out there. So, if you are like me want to succeed at the game of life, you have to focus on reading more on self-improvement books because they provide pratical knowledge that can be applied in real life. One of my favorite book is The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene.

No.3 Network
This extremely important to everyone, you and I both know the network is one of the main key to win the game of life. There are many networking events exist outside the space of your work place, include cocktail parties, weekend breakfasts, or even after-hours gatherings. If you want be a successful one you have to willing to step outside your comfort zones in an effort to meet new people. The wider your network of contacts is, the more opportunities you will have in your life. 

No.4 Meditation
Don't think this is a joke. Meditation is one of those things that have been proven by studies a hundred times over to be extremely beneficial yet very rare people does it. I guess I know the reason why nobody does it. Probably because on the surface it's one the most boring activity out there - you sit and do nothing. Well, I have to be honest with you, I am still working on it. But I can tell you meditation is more than you think. When you meditation you are actually training your brain yet you are learning how to control what thoughts to focus on and which thoughts to ignore. Meditating for just 10 minutes a day is more enough to start reaping the benefits and also gives you the headspace for creativity. 

These four tasks in my opinion are truly helpful yet most important things you should focus on in your free time. I hope this article is help, if you have any thought please do let me know.

Hello guys! How was your day? Mine was quite busy, also quite stuffed with plenty of projects, but also fun! In this post, all about my athleisure outfit featuring snazzy red track pants from Topshop which I think add extra character to the rest of the outfit. 
Red is the kind of color that attracts attentions, keeps your outfits interesting, and is generally for the brave. To have a little contrast in my outfit, matching my red track pants with jersey top from Givenchy and a black crop top. I am not sure what do you think of this outfit, but I'm already thinking about what else to wear the red track pants with...

KEEP IT COOL AND CASUAL

For hot summer days especially in Kuala Lumpur, dress to impress definitely a challenge. An effortlessly cool and casual outfit has always been a good solution for hot summer days. Plus, I wanted to dress up myself and I believe the way I portray myself will attract more positive attentions. So in this post, I've decided wear something comfy and casual but still looking cool. Matching a graphic tee with distressed silk slip dress seems like a good idea, right? The most importantly, both items are generally affordable and season-less.

HOW DO I STOP BEING LAZY AND PROCASTINATING

Yes, the art of procrastination. I believe most of us are having this common problem and always trying to avoid doing whatever you are supposed to be doing, and end up spending time doing "easier" work like sleeping (Isn't sleeping considered to be one of the most divine things in the world?) or escaping via TV, blogs or music. Although procrastination is not that healthy for you, I'd like to think that cutting yourself some slack isn't such a bad thing. Yeah, of course I procrastinate too. I do it all the time. The excuse I give myself comes from the quote, "Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time."- Marthe Troly-Curtin. Sounds legit, right? If a project due on Monday, I would waste time until it's last day to work on it. I know it's the same for most of us, we procrastinate easily when we know we still have a lot of time. However, if you want to stop procrastinating, here I want to share three simple tricks with you. 

First, the hardest part of doing anything is getting started. So why don't just tell yourself just sit there and just focus for 15 minutes. Yes, just 15 minutes. Don't think about finishing the whole paper, just focus on writing a few lines of it. Don't think of running for an hour, just focus on the first few steps. For 15 minutes, if you just get yourself going everything else comes naturally. So, just set a small goal and work on it for 15 minutes. By doing this, you will feel easier to accomplish that and feel less pressure while doing it. 

Second tips on helping you stop procrastination is setting a reward for yourself. For example, sometimes when I really don't want to work on something, I will set a little reward to motivate myself. If I have a project due on Monday, I will tell myself if I can finish like half of the project, I will reward myself a pair of new shoes! Of course, you can set a reward whatever you want. And guess what? My mind is so set on the reward, and it works so well on me. 

Lastly, use deadlines to motivate yourself. I don't know about you but this seems work so well on me. Just set a personal deadline before the actual deadline. Using this way, you will still have the rush of the deadline without actually missing the deadline. 

Okay, that's all about for today. And I hope you find this post interesting and relatable. If you have any good tips on stopping procrastination, please leave all those in the comment section down below.
