BRAIN BUDDHA 🧠
Breaking the Habit
Every new year, people set resolutions, usually starting a new good habit and/or trying to break an old bad habit.
Habits are hard to break and start without a proper strategy and consistency.
In Recommendo’s recent email, they shared this quote for breaking a bad habit:
“Any habit needs all its parts in order to function. If some parts are missing, the habit is disassembled.” — Carlos Castaneda

How to Prepare for a Personal Financial Crisis
2022 was a year to forget whether you’re invested in the stock market, grocery bills going sky high due to inflation and for some, mortgage payments increasing to crippling levels due to interest rate hikes.
All of that could lead to a personal financial crisis.
If you find yourself in that kind of situation or possibly just barely avoiding one, here’s how you can prepare yourself for any future personal financial crisis so you don’t get blindsided by another one.
BTW, I’m working on our Investing Guide which I hope to have ready in 2023. Stay tuned.
Dive into the world of alternative investments, uncover strategies of the ultra-wealthy, discuss macroeconomics, and interview successful investors.

BODY BUDDHA 🧘🏻♀️
Uncross Those Legs
Do you often find yourself crossing your legs when you’re sitting?
My former pilates trainer told me, crossing your legs is one of the biggest causes of lower-back pain.
By doing that, it’s over-stretching your lower-back muscles and can cause tightness in your lower-back.
RELATIONSHIP BUDDHA ❤️
Lessons from 11 yrs of Marriage
I’ve been married 17 years now and I’ve learned a LOT over these years. I’ll share my own lessons in a future post, but for now, here’s some lessons from this author’s eleven years of marriage.
COOL BUDDHA 😎
No More Ripped Posters
I thought I’d add a new section to the Brain Buddha newsletter to share cool stuff I come across, that doesn’t quite fit into the other sections.
I used to be a huge fan of the X-Files it was one of my favourite posters I had as a kid.
Unfortunately, after years of being in storage, when I got it out again, it was slightly damaged which was upsetting to say the least.
This year, I received a metal poster (by Displate) of this great artwork of samurai-styled stormtroopers. (see below).
I absolutely love these Displates! And it seriously overcomes the problems that come with paper posters.
