I always find never-ending excuses, such as no time due to exams, too late, no companion etc, for myself to not exercise. With all the studies and catching up to do, exercising is my least priority right now. Yes, I have avoided drinking bubble tea since the start of the semester but due to exams (again excuses), I am back to this drinking addiction, despite knowing that it is bad for my health. Weighing myself, especially on a digital scale is very demoralising. Wearing sleeveless clothes, showcasing the flabby arms makes me depressed. However, I keep comforting myself with “I can lose it next time, after exams”. Procrastination is really harmful.
At least one good thing that I have committed myself to since the start of the year is to attend pole lessons. It is enjoyable to be able to work out and at the same time, do something that I like. However, the lessons is only 1 hour a week, which I know is not enough. Looking at videos on static exercises spur me on to do them when I reach home. However, laziness always takes over and I will end up doing something other than exercising.
Keeping fit and healthy is essential to have a healthy mind and to boost my inner confidence. I’m writing this post with the intention to constantly remind myself about this and not to be complacent with what I have now.

However, I know there is a need to step out from this and pursue something different, even if it means sacrificing something or falling down. There is a need to continue stepping out and taking risks in order to improve, if not I will remain stagnant and be behind the society.
When it comes to feeling bold, we all need a bit of help from time to time. We asked our wonderful network of contributors to share a quotation with us – something they have heard or read that gives them a boost of courage when they need it the most. Here we’ve compiled a list of […]

In the midst of this hectic exam period, I had a sudden thought to pen down my everyday life, including the things that I have discovered and learnt. It is a constant reminder for myself to remember and reflect. Many memories are for a short moment but by penning it down, it could last a lifetime. I am someone who only strikes when the iron is hot, who is easily distracted, so I hope to be disciplined enough to pen down anything that is memorable and significant in my life.
