My love for books first began as a pre-schooler when my mom read to me every night before bed. I would doze off lost in my world of talking animals, glistening treasures, and thieving goblins.
Over the years, this love would only grow and I’d go on to read more than 400 books across different genres — primarily fantasy, mystery, classics, self-help, and philosophy.
Yesterday, an interesting question popped up in my mind — “If I was forced to read only a few books for the rest of my life, which ones would I choose?”, …
The fitness industry, especially the fat loss industry, is a cesspool of pseudoscience and misinformation.
Even coming to the caloric deficit, things like hours of exercise and restrictive diets are advocated. These help for sure — but there’s one highly effective method that is barely talked about.
I stumbled across this method when I noticed something — every time I came home for vacations, I’d gain…
In this age of consumerism, there’s never a dearth of things to buy and a myriad of products is constantly shoved in our faces.
Of the purchases we make, most add little to no value to our lives. Some prove to be worth their price. But only a few, very few purchases end up becoming investments that pay off handsomely in terms of — our health, productivity, and overall wellbeing.
I want to share 6 such purchases with you. These sub $100 items have added immense value to my life and I hope they do the same for you.
It has been close to 5 years since I first stepped foot in a gym and the most shocking thing is just how much fitness misinformation there is out there.
The fitness industry looks glamorous and flourishing on the outside but in reality, is one of the darkest industries out there — it practically thrives because of the misinformation.
I sat down to write this article after a lot of hesitation but these ugly truths need to be said and everyone needs to hear them.
Had I known these earlier, I would’ve saved myself a lot of effort, time, mental…
When I started writing online, one of the first things I noticed was the sheer number of articles on how to write good articles. As I devoured all the writing advice I could find, I soon found myself in the middle of a tug of war— for every piece of advice, there was someone else advising the exact opposite.
Write and publish like a freight train vs craft each piece with meticulous effort. Use vague clickbaity titles vs honest clear titles. Good formatting to make the article shine vs minimal formatting to make the writing shine. …
When I first started working out, the only exercises I did were the ones my mentor and partner performed.
As the months rolled by, inspired by my favorite fitness models and jacked dudes in my gym, I incorporated other exercises — most of which I’ve come to realize are just gimmicky trash.
It was only after diving passionately into exercise and nutrition science, did I start stumbling across truly effective exercises — obscure gems that barely anyone performs.
I want to share 2 such exercises with you — full-body exercises that will get you gasping for breath, perspiring bucketloads, and…
One of the joys the pandemic has snatched away from us is that of traveling.
But over the past year, I’ve realized that there are many more ways to travel, some even better than the conventional way. And you can experience them from the comfort of your room.
So sit back and relax while I share 5 such ways.
Books are the closest thing to magic. If you’re an avid reader like me, you will more than agree. And as the famous actor, Al Pacino says — “You’ll never be alone if you’ve got a book”
From my preschool nights…
Having successfully gone from obese to shredded losing 24 kgs in the process and coached quite a few, one thing I’ve noticed is — weight loss is unnecessarily overcomplicated.
It’s scientifically proven that there’s only one way to lose fat — through a calorie deficit. And every single fancy diet or workout routine tries to do just that.
But you don’t need strict diets or tiring workouts to lose weight. You just need to consistently stick to a few tiny habits and changes. I want to share 17 such tips with you.
Your Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT) or the physical…
I’m about to turn 21 and this is a weird age to be at.
While I’ve graduated, one of my friends is just a year into med school, another’s building a startup, and yet another recently got married. Did I mention the one that’s contemplating joining a monastery?
With 21 itself encompassing such a large gamut, the 20s is an entire universe.
And it isn’t easy to navigate. So, I did what any rookie Astronaut would do — turning to the veterans a.k.a people in their 30s and 40s.
And what better place to look for advice than Reddit? While…
There are tons of cliche habit articles floating around the internet. This is not one of them.
I’ll share with you 3 habits, just three — the only ones I’ve consistently stuck to for years and reaped tremendous returns.
Like most other articles, I could throw in 7 or 12 more, but I’d be lying through my teeth if I did that — neither have I found it possible to stick to tens of daily habits consistently nor are the rest of them as impactful.
Not only will I state these habits, but will also detail the rationale, go over…
