What if we deserve good things?

I'm human (I have this confirmed by a very drunk guy in Stockholm, who looked at me and a friend I was hanging out with and spoke the deep wisdom: "You... you are people"). Which is why I guess it’s okay for me to have bad days. You know, those days where everything...

Three ways to get back into your body

I love being inside my mind. It's a great place, full of unexplored possibilities. It's where a lot of things happen that would never occur in real life. In short, it's crazy but it's fun. However, there's also one really big trap: forgetting about my body. Last week...
