This issue is brought to you with The Brain Buddha’s Morning Buddha. A guide to starting your mornings on the right foot & setting up your day for success.


Living a Good Life

The passing of Queen Elizabeth (RIP) feels surreal. Literally, she has been the reigning monarch for my entire life.

No matter what your opinions are about a monarchy, she devoted her life to serving her country and the commonwealth.

She literally worked until days before she passed by swearing in the new Prime Minister of the UK.

In thinking about her life, this quote by James Clear resonates strongly:

“Each day is a small lifetime. Live a good life today.”

Do This Before You Retire

While I’m not ready to retire just yet, this tip from Adam Bornn, of Parallel Wealth Financial Group, is a good reminder to have a Line of Credit (LOC) setup BEFORE you retire.

You never know when you have emergency expenses (such as health issues, property damage, etc) that pop up once you’ve retired and you don’t want that depleting your savings to quickly.

How Much Do You Need to Workout to Get Fit?

I hate going to the gym.

It’s not that I’m against exercise, I prefer sports and working out at home versus the high-testosterone environment of an external gym.

I see people overdo it a lot and some rarely workout at all, so if you’ve been wondering, this is how much you need to workout to get fit.


How to Nurture Your Friendships

As I get older, it’s harder to make new friends.

I know I won’t waste time and energy on those who won’t reciprocate.

It was easier when I lived in Asia, as the expat community was large and was easy to meet many other expats and we even formed good lasting friendships.

Moving back to Canada has been more difficult in making new friends (while I’m fortunate to have some close friends still living here).

So, here’s some tips on how to nurture your friendships (via the BrainPint).
