"There are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely-or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands."
- Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere’s Fan (via quotes-shape-us)

Plan your “cheat” days. When I allow myself to cheat (e.g. eat off my program/schedule), it always sets a precedent in my mind to cheat more and, invariably, my cravings become more intense. My mental boundary has been breached. My solution is to plan my more indulgent treats and ONLY eat them then. This seems to build my will power and discipline, rather than take away from it.

Our connection to content
Using neuroscience tools, Innerscope Research explores the connections between consumers and media.
It’s often said that humans are wired to connect: The neural wiring that helps us read the emotions and actions of other people may be a foundation for human empathy.
But for the past eight years, MIT Media Lab spinout Innerscope Research has been using neuroscience technologies that gauge subconscious emotions by monitoring brain and body activity to show just how powerfully we also connect to media and marketing communications.
“We are wired to connect, but that connection system is not very discriminating. So while we connect with each other in powerful ways, we also connect with characters on screens and in books, and, we found, we also connect with brands, products, and services,” says Innerscope’s chief science officer, Carl Marci, a social neuroscientist and former Media Lab researcher.
With this core philosophy, Innerscope — co-founded at MIT by Marci and Brian Levine MBA ’05 — aims to offer market research that’s more advanced than traditional methods, such as surveys and focus groups, to help content-makers shape authentic relationships with their target consumers.
“There’s so much out there, it’s hard to make something people will notice or connect to,” Levine says. “In a way, we aim to be the good matchmaker between content and people.”

"Life may not always fit into your ideas of how it ‘should’ be. It may not always feel comfortable. But there comes a point when you are just so tired of chasing temporary experiences of peace and love, and hoping for a perfect future ‘one day’. There comes a point when you acknowledge that your deepest longing is to wake up to reality no matter what. There comes a point when it is time to risk losing it all, and to courageously take a step into the unknown."
