Don’t have time? Make time

Sometimes we do complain about not having the time to do the things that we love, we blame work to take most of our time, or we are just lazy or procrastinate, whether we are planning to go to the gym or start some new activity, it’s always the same answer, I “don’t have time”.

In order to resolve this issue, we need first to recognize that we actually have an issue, look at  friends or colleagues, they wake up early in the morning and go for a run, or don’t get home till very late in the night, knowing that their day is no longer than ours, it’s 24 hours for all.

Why California is the best state in the US?

In my opinion, I think that California is the best state in the US and this is why?

The weather: The weather in California is Mediterranean-ish and has long hot summers and mild winters. When you live in California you will not be freezing and will never need to wear heavy-duty winter clothing. But should you want to sky or play with the snow, the city has a lot of natural parks with mountains where it snows. San Francisco might be an exception due to the fog but in my opinion, the fog adds a lot of charm to the beauty of the city.
