Some of the things that I have learned so far and that I am still learning.  Life is constantly changing so why not to better adapt to it!

Why celebrating every single thing will make you happier

I believe that we should be celebrating every single time things go well, we achieve things, we get love or we have lots of fun. I profoundly believe this is important and also a big part of why I am getting happier and more grateful with my life every day. I also find that some people do not react well to this and prefer to look at the glass as half-empty or just to focus on the 2% of negative from what otherwise would be a fantastic piece of news. I see these people as always walking under a dark cloud, they always seem to get the shorter end of the stick, they are always the unlucky ones and misfortune seems to follow them around wherever they go. But another characteristic of these type of people is that they do not get why other people see life in such a ‘happy’ way when there is so much going wrong, in their opinion.

To me, there is a fundamental difference that differentiates my way of thinking from their way of thinking: GRATITUDE.

How to keep your sanity & enjoy family reunions

Hiya! And happy New year to you all! I am just back from a few weeks of holidays and I honestly couldn’t wait to write this post. It does not matter how well you get along with your family, holidays is usually a time when we are meant to experience certain things that we missed about our families and of course others that maybe we didn’t miss as much.

Weight Loss Challenge: The power of habits and cortisol in your life

Hiya Friends!

These last two weeks have been a mix of many things and I am still doing this challenge and learning more things about how I understand food.

One of the things I am noticing after 4 weeks doing this challenge is that the ‘crazy need for really rich foods’ is fading away. By this, I don’t mean that I don’t ever think about it but that I don’t have it in my mind 24/7 and that it is becoming increasingly easier to just say NO. I read a book a long time ago about the power of habit and I guess this has  a lot to do with it. I have also realized how big is the role of stress in any diet.

‘Turning Pro’ book review

Hiya and Happy Saturday!

It has been a really busy week where I have finally published other two websites part of my overall project for the year. One is a brand new art website more in line with what I want to do in the near future, where I would also like to include photography and design in my life! Take a peek at www.elenasorianoart.com and let me know what you think! And the other website I published is more like a display of the various hats that I wear in my life in an attempt to wrap them up in a nice pretty showcase. Check it out at www.lnasoriano.com

TURNING PRO BY STEVEN PRESSFIELD

This is a funny moment in my life, and like it happens with all these weird moments  you stumble upon some amazing books that feel like they REALLY speak directly to your soul. This is the case with a book I have recently read: ”Turning Pro”  by Steven Pressfield.

Hi friends,

I am so excited to finally write my first blog post here!. I have been tuning and working on this project for the last few months and yet!! here we are! The idea of this blog has been a recurrent one for me as I needed to find a platform where I was able to share all the things I love and that I am learning everyday. The only problem is that I could´t figure out how to do that. After a few months, I put all the ideas together and voilà! Welcome to my blog!
