Πρώτες μέρες καραντίνας

Τις πρωτες δυο εβδομάδες (τώρα κλείσαμε έναν μήνα μέσα στα σπίτια μας) η κατάσταση ήταν συγκεχυμένη. Ένας ιός που απειλεί την ανθρωπότητα. Στην Ιταλία πεθαίνουν κάθε μέρα κατά εκατοντάδες. Ο ιός ήρθε από την Κίνα αλλά γρήγορα εξαπλώθηκε σε όλη τη γη. Οι γιατροί δεν εχουν καταφέρει ακόμα να βρουν αποτελεσματικά φάρμακα. Εμβόλιο ακόμα δεν έχει βρεθεί. Κι εμείς στα σπίτια μας. Κλεισμένοι. Φοβισμένοι. Χωρίς να ξέρουμε πότε και πως θα λήξει όλη αυτή η ιστορία! Νιώθω σαν πρωταγωνίστρια στο The Stand του Stiven King...

Penguins in Paracas

Paracas was along the shore. We took a boat ride to see the warm weather penguins and sea lions. I never would have thought penguins in Peru!

Peru

Ica Peru - The Desert

If you're looking for some awesome excursions. You have to visit Desert Nights, Malecon de 139, Huacachina, Peru. They have a nice little hostel, very safe clean and friendly. The food at the restaurant is great and they also have great service. The excursions we did were, as you can see the four wheeler, and sandboarding. You lay on your stomach on a larger looking snowboard and coast down the sand dunes. There are other options for more experienced skiers and snowboarders as well.

work experience

Working towards deep work and digital minimalism

My new habit is incorporating "deep work" into my workflow. I recently listened to a podcast with Cal Newport, who specializes in deep work and digital minimalism. Essentially that means reducing our distractions to approximately ZERO -- no emails, no Tweets, no Whatsapp chats, etc. -- and really concentrating on our work for as long as possible. One of Cal's points that really stuck with me is that in 10 - 15 years, we're going to look back on our distracted working style and be embarrassed. It's incredibly inefficient, and causes us undue stress. He anticipates a big shift in the way we approach work over the next decade, and as I'm seeing more and more people trying to disconnect from their phones, I think he's dead on. So here's what I do for my new habit: while working, I turn my phone onto Do Not Disturb mode. I put on some easy working music (often jazz or classical, with no words whatsoever). I put on a timer for thirty minutes, and I literally throw my phone to the other side of my bed (I work from home). This last step is important -- well, maybe not the throwing part. But if my phone is within my reach, I will grab it without thinking about it. If it's burrowed into the blankets across the room from me, I'm forced to think about whether I NEED to look at it when I reach for it. That's all for now. There are some other things I'm doing to work towards digital minimalism, maybe I'll write some more tomorrow!

"When a loved one passes, it's difficult to find the best way to honor their memory. Our lives are not so simple anymore and family members can be thousands of miles apart. Our memorial pendants are designed with your lifestyle in mind."

Eterea Memorial came to life after the founders both experienced the loss of one of their close relatives. Both felt that the funeral industry was archaic, impersonal, and overpriced. They looked for a way to honor their loved ones that fit with their modern lifestyle. With a growing number of people forgoing the traditional funeral ceremony in preference of a celebration of life, there is also a need to change how people commemorate one's body after death. Cremation has recently become a more popular option over burial, but many people are often left unsure of what to do with the cremated remains of their loved ones. Eterea Memorial jewelry provides a meaningful way to memorialize loved ones requiring only a small commitment of ashes. Our pendants are made with the highest quality materials, completely customizable, and laser welded for a guaranteed seal. More details at https://etereamemorial.com/

work experience

The power of Now

The power of Now is incredibly strong and incredibly simple: stop postponing what you can do right now. If it can be done in the next 5 to 10min, you should do it now and be done with it, forever. I know there is book out there with a similar title, but I haven't read it and don't know if it talks about this idea as well. But either way, I'm going to keep refering to it as the power of Now. I've learned about the Power of Now while working with 2 startup CEO's over the last 5 years. Both of them had an incredible amount of work, hundreds of emails to deal with, dozens of calls to do every day. Yet, whenever me or another employee would interrupt them, and ask them about a problem or a question, they would stop what they were doing and take the time to solve it. Even if it was an accounting or tax issue! If you feel like it will take more than 15-20 min, then maybe address the problem differently and try to break it into smaller tasks. I don't know if they did this on purpose, but I find this management method and state of mind incredibly powerful: - it empowers the other person buy saying "your problem is important enough for me to address it now" - it creates and reinforces the right mindset for both the CEO/manager and the employee: get sh*t done! That is, after all, the golden rule of startups. I try to apply the Power of Now in my every day life, with errands, admin tasks, cleaning and I noticed it keeps me in a proactive state instead. It makes me want to jump onto the next task and solve it ! (coffee helps too!) On the contrary, one of my roommates told me yesterday how her new company (300+ people) was taking forever to take even the smallest decisions, making sure everyone was rightfully invovled and aware of the same level of facts before conferring, planing a meeting and taking the decision. It seems to me that this approach lacks accountability and leadership and is not necesseraly good. I encourage you to apply the Power of Now in your everyday life and to stop postponing. I found that it made me feel more confident as an entrepreneur, as a human, and it even spread a motivational energy with the people around me.

relationships

Elements of building relation

I have always heard that love can't be seen but you can feel it when you are in love. Yup!! We have seen a lot of romantic films in Hollywood and Bollywood. Some of those make us cry but what happen in reality?? It’s totally hard to say if it's going to be a happy ending or if they will be apart from each other. A few of them are lucky to get the chance of written happy ending tales but most of them aren’t. So it will be really sad when you see you can’t hold hand with the one who you love most. A few of us can get the chance to live the rest of life with whom he/she loves. But most of us can’t get the chance to tie up with the loving person. So can we say that our love isn’t strong as much as their?? No, there are others factors that keep a relation alive. A relationship is built on some foundations like trust, respect, understanding, etc. If one of these is missing by any chance than, the relation could not go further.

marketing

Digital Marketing : A new trend of Micro-Moments.

A few years back, digital marketing was not a common phenomenon for the marketing pupil. Now, digital marketing is common among us. Each and every business entity wants to do digital marketing so that they can boost up their online presence. But it’s not the last word for market researcher. A new trend is growing that is known as Micro-Moments. A trending hashtag in digital marketing circles, #micromoments emerged in a Google AdWords study earlier this year. It found that searches on mobile devices already outnumber desktop searches in 10 countries, including the U.S. and Japan. The Business world is going to use this new trend. People normally spend most of their time on smartphones. And they are not interested to search through the full process so they choose to search by direct questions. The way to seize the micro moment Now time to say goodbye to the linear consumer journey. It’s time to get acquainted with the idea that what used to be a linear sequence of milestones is increasingly becoming a "Choose Your Own Adventure" of mobile-powered customers. 1. Provide small steps towards Big Goals- Marketers can guide the way with SEO optimized content with right AdWords to match specific search .Take the Big Picture perspective and attain a thorough understanding of what your customers want and need inside of the micro-moments you’ve identified. Whether it’s designing new product features or providing location-based, real-time content, the emphasis should be on delivering a customer-centric user experience that feels real, relevant and personal – with all the small steps toward completing the Big Picture. 2. Optimize for mobile- It’s essential to understand how your brand experience holds up across channels—is it a seamless journey across screens, covering various points in the conversion funnel? Make sure you have the right technology support partner to give the overall audience a better experience. According to Google 66% of smartphone users research products they saw on TV with their phones. In this broad playing field, data-driven, omnichannel marketing solutions offer a host of innovative products and features to help track on-line behavior and capture the data that matters.

This Made Me Smile ~ 23.Oct.19

Going through some Octoberish reads, I came across this beautiful passage from The Lantern's Ember by Colleen Houck. Seems like Halloween can make you feel a lot more than just quivery. ★★★★★ “My stubborn little witch,” he said softly. “Don’t believe for a clockwork minute that you are unlovable. If I were a mortal, a man not doomed to walk the earth as a haunted specter, I would be the first suitor in line. Please believe that.” She hiccupped. “You… you’d want to court me?” Jack laughed. “Court you? I’d follow you around like Finney and stare at you all moony-eyed. I’d spend my days fending off your other would-be suitors, my evenings charming Flossie, and my nights stealing kisses at your window.” ― Colleen Houck, The Lantern's Ember

self healing

next steps

I'm in a space right now where I recognize that the things that are for me will work out whether I put in 10% or 100% and the things that are not for me will dissipate even if I give it 110% It's a bit of a tough space to be in because sometimes we create things that we wholeheartedly believe in and when it's not cosigned or doesn't pick up in the way you hoped AND you've given it all of your energy, it can be hard to lay to rest. However, I think it's important to recognize when we have been beating a dead horse and it's time to simply move on and try something new. We gotta be okay with allowing things to end lovingly and pick them back up when the time is right. Personally, I have felt that I've been beating a dead horse when it comes to Broken Heals coaching. I've struggled with offering my services and I've often just wanted to help people rather than seek financial abundance for my efforts. This has been a challenge I've been facing for more than 3 years, where society is constantly telling you to live your dreams, know your worth and charge tax meanwhile many of the women that I have worked with could not afford to pay even a minimum amount due to the circumstances that they are in. I've been at this game for over 5 years before healing became the trend that it is now. It's a lot to spend your time, energy and resources holding someone's hand for months on end and they just don't want to do the work - and I'm not even blaming them because healing ain't no simple thing. Healing has no end date. It's a long, arduous process that requires you to take charge of where you're at and do something about it and that shit is scary. And with the trend that's in now, people would still rather TALK about healing, than actually DO the work. But don't get me wrong, coaching hasn't been all draining - I've built amazing connections, I've helped a lot of women take steps towards their healing and I've grown and healed myself along this journey and I believe that that in itself has been extremely rewarding. With that being said, I'm trying something new. I'll be offering Healing Plan Consultations - you tell me what you need help with, I create a plan for you, you do what you can with the plan, we do check-ins over the course of 90 days and go from there. This is your first step to healing, your first step to doing rather than thinking or speaking on it. This is especially helpful for those that are still a little nervous diving into therapy. Holla at your girl. Like I said, 10% or 110% it don't matter, we give it what we got and it's gonna work or it's not.

spirituality

Spiritual Progress - Physical Discomfort

There is a prevalent misconception that we need to go to the Himalayas and sleep on hard floors to make spiritual progress. That is helpful for some people, but not all. We can make spiritual progress in our own home sitting on our comfortable, soft beds. Spirituality has nothing to do with physical discomfort, it has to do with quieting our mind, which we can do right now in our homes. “At your core, you are peace. Be who you are. Be Peace.” – Ravi Kathuria, “Happy Soul. Hungry Mind.”

mental health

Hi there, I'm Haylee!

Welcome to my page, it's lovely to e-meet you! Here you'll find various entries about the things I find interesting (which is mainly why we do the things we do!) and a bit about my own personal journey of self-development. First thing's first, who am I and why am I called the @thehsphelper...? Well long story short, I moved countries a couple of years ago and was metaphorically stripped of all the things I thought created my 'identity'. For the first time ever, I was stuck with myself without all the distractions of hobbies, studying, work, friends, family, and the likes ANDDD I didn't like my own company very much! I fell into depression and subsequently went through a period of self-healing, self-discovery, and self-development. Through all this self-exploration, I learned that I was a 'Highly Sensitive Person' (it's a science thing, really!) which explained A LOT about why I did and didn't like certain things and why and I did and didn't do, certain things. It made me realize, just how easy it can be to live life without really questioning who we are inside. After this revelation, I felt the need to create a page to spread info about what a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) is, but this page how has now evolved to a page about questioning our habits and behaviors as well. So here you have me, the HSP Helper ;) And my VISION is this: I want to help others to uncover their own authentic identities, just like I did, by questioning current habits, issues and behaviors to make sure these things are empowering rather than disempowering! I hope to do this through educating, teaching and healing people. Why is this my vision? I BELIEVE OUR HABITS DRIVE OUR LIFE AND WE NEED TO QUESTION THEM IN ORDER TO BECOME THE DRIVERS OF OUR OWN LIVES! I decided a long time ago that I was tired of running on auto-pilot and so my continually aim is to ensure auto-pilot is turned of and that I am the driver of my plane (my life). In addition, I'm all about people accepting and owning their flaws, habits, behaviors and issues and I'm also all about people seeking professional help for these issues too. But where's the in-between? There aren't enough resources out there to help people who simply want to explore and question their own identities. We don't necessarily want to go to therapy about an issue/habit/behavior, but we simply want to know WHY the issue/habit/behavior exists in order to do our own healing or development - this is from my own experience of therapy! So think of me as a support, whilst you walk the path of self-discovery, self-healing and self-development. I believe we all deserve to have the tools to heal ourselves (learning how to fish) instead of being the recipient of healing from someone else (being given a fish). So I hope this page and my Instagram can teach you how to fish, I mean, heal yourself. Look out for upcoming entries about the particular habits I'm working on (including procrastination, perfectionism, self-sabotage - just to name a few!). I'll also try to provide some more practical and educational entries about why we do the things we do so that we can heal and develop together. Lots of Love, Haylee x

thanksgiving

The spirit of Thanksgiving seen by a foreigner

Yesterday we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving. If you ask me why it happens 1 month before the American one, I'd say it's part of the Canadian quirkiness. If you ask a Canadian about it, he'd probably apologize for it :-) Yesterday we cleverly called it a Friendsgiving. Almost half of the people around the table were coming from other countries like Australia, Chile, Venezuela. I really loved this international and inclusive feel, which definitely reflects the culture in Vancouver. We joked about how preparing our own turkey and gravy made us feel like we had all become full grown adults... I guess we're at that stage now! Our lovely hosts made a special effort to decorate the table with orange, red and yellow maple leaves, cinnamon candles and other small details that made this gathering more than just a dinner between friends. 10 years ago I celebrated my first American Thanksgiving in Long Island, near New York. I was barely 20 years old then, and discovered for the first time an immense sense of warmness and hospitality from a family I had just met. The memory of that evening stayed so sharp in my mind and I know that if I get the chance to host Thanksgiving one day, I will refer to it and try to make it as special as it was for me then. Yesterday's evening was as comforting and graceful as this old memory, and stayed asbolutely true to this holiday's spirit. Thanksgiving is an opporunity to be thankful, so here it goes: I am thankful to the people who invited me to spend Thanksgiving with them. I am thankful for learning from their sense of warmth and generosity. I am thankful for discovering that a meal could be so delicious even without using ANY cheese ! I know, it's hard to believe for us French people. Wishing a happy Thanksgiving to everyone !

productivity

My personal framework to being productive

Being a startup founder for several times, and having worked closely with other startup fouders, I made this personal framework to check on my own daily productivity. I wanted to write about this after meeting so many entrepreneurs and freelancers at the WeWork Co-working Space in Vancouver. I loved how we would check up on each other, and exchange tips. I hope that my framework helps everyone. 1. Plan your work ahead for the next day There has been many mornings when I sat there planning my work for the same day, and these days always ended up being horrible work days. Knowing in advance what to work on is incredibly powerful. I wake up and just execute my tasks, without worrying about what to prioritize, scope, or wonder what's next. Mornings are particularly productive, so I like to jump on them and be in "execute mode". Some self-help journals are based around that same idea, of planning your goals and tasks in advance. 2. Divide tasks into micro-tasks: I try to stick to the smallest scope of action as possible, because it's easy to measure my progess, evalute when I'll be done, and move on to the next task. I aim at 30 minutes per task. If it's more than 45 minutes of work, then I divide it in smaller pieces. I also force myself to stop if I go over that time, because it means there is a problem somewhere, and I need to identify it, and breathe for a second. This helps stay focused and motivated as you see yourself doing progress. My biggest lesson is this: when you execute, you lose all global vision - that's okay. But being a Manager to your team and managing yourself means knowing if you're spending too much time, and identifying what is blocking the process, and finally evaluating how important it is to your plan. 3. Know to NOT work when your mind is not focused The whole point of working for yourself is the freedom it brings. Sitting at your desk when you know you are not efficient is like looking at yourself in the mirror and saying a lie out loud. At the end of the day, you face your own work and your own results. When you are in Food Coma, or when your mind can't think clearly for whatever reason, PLEASE go do something else: take a break, a nap, doing something fun. NO GUILT ! You'll end up being way happyer, and coming back to work way more motivated and focused. It's okay if there are slow days. 4. Do a small 5-10 min meditation Your mind makes hundreds of decisions every day, taking into accounts thousands of variables... What if I told you that meditation acts like a reset button: it kinda clears the clutter and brings tons of clarity. Close your eyes, and do a quick meditation (there is so much content out there to help you do it)

personal growth

"A person's success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have."

I usually avoid “motivational quotes” because I generally believe that they’re made up of “fluff” and don’t contain any real substance; however, in this case, I firmly agree with the thesis: If you’re willing to have meaningful conversations that other people tend to avoid, I genuinely believe that you’ll be much better off down the line. Not only does this often prove to be true in business, but I think it also translates well in our personal lives when it comes to relationships.

creative writing

Maya and Max part 2

Max worried she corrupted Maya. She knew she shouldn’t, she wasn’t supposed to care about her influence on people. But Maya wasn’t a person, she was an angel. Though she would probably be praised for causing an angel to fall, she didn’t want that for Maya. She was too beautiful and pure for the horrors of Earth. Max didn’t just worry for Maya’s wings, she worried for Maya’s grace. It was full of light and happiness, and among the pessimism of the world it would drown. She never understood how humans could love someone so much yet leave them, but she understood now.

poetry

Don't stop!

Don't stop dreaming Don't stop screaming Don't stop believeing Don't stop fighting Don't stop being you At the end you will see, The clear view, Then you will realize That you break through. Just be cool, that's the rule.
