Benefits of Cold Showers
There are many benefits of cold showers. But did you know cold water could even help your mental state?

The Benefits of Boredom
In this video from BBC Reel, psychologist Sandi Mann explains why boredom is important.
When you’re bored, you tend to daydream and your mind wanders. And this is a very very important part of the creative process… If you find that you’re stuck on a problem, or you’re really worried about something, you can’t find your way out, take some time out. Just be bored. Let your mind wander and you might just find that a creative solution will pop into your head.

Don't Quit in Pain
I listen to every episode of Adam Grant’s podcast, it’s about how to make work suck less :-) Here’s a quote from an episode with Angela Duckworth:
So if you quit at a low point, you’re putting too much weight on present pain and not enough weight on future growth. Quit on a high note, and you’ll be left without regrets.
I’d love to know your favorite quotes. What are the quotes that help you get through life?
Enjoy the weekend!
