Entrepreneurs: Sleeping less than 7 hours a night has serious consequences for our body


Sleeping little or badly damages our body and not only from the point of view of mood or energy consumption, there are other problems that can cause the lack of sleep. An adult should sleep on average between 7 and 9 hours a night, but unfortunately most people sleep less or do not find it important to rest all the time because they always feel fit. In reality, sleep plays a fundamental role in the healthy functioning of our body and not enough sleep leads to serious consequences.

Not sleeping well can lead to weight gain: sleep works on different functions of our body, one of these has to do with the molecules that regulate the hunger. Less sleep makes you hungry more often, especially sugars and fats that the body requires.

  • Little or no sleep can cause skin problems: night-time sleeps or a few hours of sleep, not only causes the classic dark circles under the eyes, but can also cause other skin problems. For example, it can damage collagen, the protein that makes our skin smooth and supple, to allow it to age prematurely.
  • Little sleep can also cause more serious illnesses: some of these are heart attacks, infarcts, cardiac arrhythmias, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke. In addition, it is estimated that 90% of people suffering from insomnia suffer from associated disorders, which are sometimes not manifested.
  • Poor or little sleep leads to deterioration of memory: sleep helps to store and consolidate the assimilated data during the day. Not enough rest causes our brains to perform this activity satisfactorily.

Not resting leads to processes of cognitive delay: it reduces attention, concentration and problem solving. You will also have difficulty studying.

  • Sleeping less than 6 hours per night makes you more prone to suffer from depression: insomnia becomes a fertile breeding ground for the appearance of forms of depression and anxiety.
  • Not enough sleep reduces libido: sexual desire is also related to sleep. Not resting properly leads to a reduction in libido.



Life is, in a quick sense, like an eternal school.

Every day we are learning from our experiences, and the lessons we acquire allow us to move forward from one stage of life to the next.

But not all of us are good students who are not taking the life lessons to serious.

Some people learn rapidly, and thus can quickly grow in understanding and evolve into higher states of their own consciousness. Others are slow motion learners, finding it extremely difficult to pass the tests of life , and as a result have to repeat them again and again and again…

As I grow older, I chose to spend some good time reflecting on the most important lessons I’ve learned in my road of life so far. If you’re wondering what those are, I wrote them here below so that you can have the opportunity to read them and benefit from them as much as I did but this is not all and surely not the end. Life continuous….


Tell me now :What are some of the gigantic lessons you’ve learned along your road of life? I’d love to read them, so feel totally free to let me and the world know by writing them in the comments or just send me an email.

I Am Always learning,

We are a few moments away from a brand new year full of challenges, threats and opportunities.

Here the lessons…

It feels weird to think that many years ago I was born in this nice world. Yes a couple of decades ago, I remember that my twenties seemed incredibly far in the future. But before I realized it, here I am, bam bam bam over 30 and heading further into 50+….

Aha so far my life’s journey has been an incredible drive and ride. I have gone through tons of ups and downs, both of which have taught me big big important lessons that allowed me to better understand me, myself and the universum, as well as to build my life the way I want as a KAIZEN LIFESTYLE PRACTITIONER.

In this blog I would like to share with you all some of the greatest and fantastic life lessons I have learned during the continuous course of my life, in hopes that you as reader will find them as helpful as I did. Without any further ado, here they are…just read further:

1. The moment is all there. Whoops, the past is gone and the future is not here yet. The present moment is everything you and I have, so be very sure to immerse yourself in it.

2. I really don’t know everything, and that’s totally fine I think. To learn, you need to admit that you don’t know it all. In fact, not everything can be known, and that’s part of the beauty of life, which is an ongoing learning journey because circumstances are changing rapidly.

3. Pain isn’t my enemy. It is just a messenger trying to show you that there is something going on. Instead of hiding from your pain or suppressing it, face it and pay attention to what it has to show you really, so that you can understand why it is there and how to get rid of it or to change things.

4. Most best things in life are for free. Just a few examples: A deep breath of fresh oxygen, a relaxed walk in nature, a chit chat with a good friend, and a look into the eyes of a good and beloved partner. Yes, Yes, cherish them before someone puts a price label on them too.

5. Money is NOT just the neutral energy. As it exists today, money is creating artificial scarcity, which results in competition, inequality, poverty, greed, and violence (among other things). Therefore, money is quite a negative force in our environment/world we are living in.

6. Peace begins in yourself. Three, four times a day you can choose peace over violence — that is, with each meal you eat. Is your food cruelty-free or does it involve unnecessary suffering and yes the factor death?

7. Sitting is killing you, do you realize this. Walk, rundance salsa, stretch, do weightlifting. Move your healthy body throughout the day.

8. Do not fully trust the mainstream media. Big media companies are owned by people whose main intention is to emotionally manipulate you and your family in order to keep you full hypnotized, sell you tons of lies and empty your purse and or pockets.

9. Remember: Voice your truth. Speak out of your mind, express/explain your feelings and let people see who you really are. Being true to yourself and others is the only way to build genuine relationships and live an authentic life.

10. You can not change no one. But your actions can inspire many to change, become and influence.

11. My mistakes are part of learning. I don’t fear of making mistakes, for they have important things to teach me. But make sure you don’t repeat them.

12. My failures are stepping stones to success. Each failure leads you one step closer to success, so do not shy away from it. Try, fail, and then try again and again for as long as it takes to achieve full goals.

13. Simplicity is the key to live well. To live simply means to let go of what is negative/unimportant and focus on what truly matters to your happiness and well-being in life

14. Always think for yourself. If you don’t, someone else will think for you and rule you.

15. We don’t have a true democracy if I might say so. Casting a vote once every five years alone doesn’t give people much more freedom in collective decision-making. Especially if you consider that what they vote for is nothing but power-hungry politicians who are moving below the belt and are lying to followers in order to serve their vested interests.

16. There is no a damn ‘free market’. In our socioeconomic system, you have as much freedom as your money can buy, that is it. At the other hand those with a lot of it have the freedom to restrict the freedom of others.

17. Reading books can be life-changing. Surely you must have heard this countless times. But it is totally true — some books have the power to turn your life upside down, in a tremendously positive way. Just make sure to carefully pick which books to read, otherwise they can be a waste of your time/investment

18. Use words wisely. Words can heal or hurt, so always be mindful of how you speak to people.

19. Please do no harm, but take no damn shitBe kind and loving to your fellow human beings, but be smart enough to establish healthy boundaries in your relationships, keep the network smooth and rolling at its best.

20. Possessions can possess you. Let go of your attachments to your belongings, for one day they will all be taken away from you.

21. Always look fear in the eyes. If you don’t, you will never overcome it.

22. Take responsibility in your life. Do not just sit cross-legged and blame others for your misfortunes. You have enough power in your hands to help shape your destination(s).

23. Change starts from within. Embody the change you wish to see in the world. Nobody will be able to do this inner change for you.

24. No person is monstrous. Those who choose to hurt others are deeply hurt themselves. Keeping a non-judgmental, merciful attitude can do wonders to help heal their wounds.

25. Question your beliefs. If followed blindfolded, they can edifice your life (and that of others).

26. Our economy is an anti-economy. To economize means to carefully manage rootage and to avoid unnecessary financial loss or waste. Our economic system, however, is essentially on consumption— that is, on the mindless and constant extraction of natural resources and production of waste.

27.Select your friends carefully. The group we spend time with shape our lives. Choose to pass it with those who lift you up and not those who drag you down.

28. There’s no such thing as the perfect human relationship. But if your relationships are build with good nature, love and care, they can improve your life more than anything else.

29. Embrace alteration. Life is perpetually changing, and the happiest people are the ones who have learned to adapt and flow with it.

30. You might die any moment. Consider on death regularly, so that when it knocks on your door, it doesn’t find you unprepared.

31. Be appreciative for what you have. Your life might not be perfect, but it’s still a wonder-full gift. Remember to appreciate it and make the most out of it while you can.




The development of technology is constantly changing. By improving processes more and more, our lives are made ever easier. But I sometimes wonder, is that really necessary?Don’t we sometimes spend too much time in the technological tools, so that we forget what is really important?

What have changes in technology brought us?

For me it is important that technological innovation ensures that we can live ever more sustainability. Cars become more efficient, products last longer, packaging uses less and less plastic and companies can make better choices in their processes. We use technology to create a better environment and thus a better society.

It is good that as a company you can make more conscious choices with digitization . Using less paper is a good example of this. By improving processes and optimizing digitally, a company contributes to the sustainability of our society. The transformation of technology also helps a company to work smarter; processes cost less time, colleagues speak to each other via video instead of being in the car for an hour and a lot of costs are saved.

Loss of connection

Technological innovation also has a downside. In my opinion technology is driving people apart more and more. Our lives are getting busier, the agenda is increasingly full of appointments and we need more plans and multitasking . So our smartphone is glued to our hand and we regularly send, while we are talking to, also an app to a friend what we eat tonight, and you name it. We are less and less aware of events and lose contact with what is happening around us.

Just think about sending a Christmas card. How many people did you send a Christmas card last year? And how much did you receive there? We no longer choose to take the time for these activities. And yes, if you are talking about the environment, is not a digital card much better? Yet we do not always send it, and it does not always give the same feeling as when you receive a paper, handwritten card. A personal message does so much more. And how about doing an old-fashioned thing, so spontaneously between the companies? We do not actually have time or energy for that. Is not that much easier from the comfort of the Facetime or Skype?

Transformation of lifestyle

We can not imagine that we used a mobile phone just to call and text, not so long ago. Now our whole life is in our phone and it has become indispensable. Innovation and technology have really transformed our lifestyle in this way.

In the end innovation in technology has brought us a lot of beauty, and it has a positive influence on sustainability and our society. But let us consciously continue to deal with this change and not let it completely affect our lives. Then choose to go offline and live more consciously in the moment. And this year at Christmas? You might send a handwritten card to your loved ones again.





Robots and people who work together: it may sound like a science fiction film. But Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is certainly not an extraterrestrial fiction. More and more organizations discover the added value of software robots.

Robotic process automation (RPA) can take labor-intensive processes off your hands. You configure the software robot once, after which it can endlessly copy the same actions. Some companies are skeptical about this robot software, others are enthusiastic. Is RPA a lasting innovation and do people lose their jobs through this software? I identify 5 trends in robotisation.

  1. From local to central management

It goes without saying that most organizations started with the use of one or only a few software robots. This robot software is often managed from a desktop in that initial phase. Logical. But how do you deal with 80 robots? You can’t manage that separately. That is why more and more organizations set up a central server on which they manage all robots. This way you can see exactly which robots there are, what their status is and how often they are deployed.

“Many organizations set up a central server for robot management”

  1. RPA and people become colleagues

Sometimes organizations are skeptical about the benefits of RPA in the beginning. But once they see that robot software really can operate multiple systems, they can’t wait to automate as much as possible. Yet not all processes are suitable for RPA and people remain indispensable. I increasingly see that robots support their human colleagues.

  1. Cognitive automation complements RPA

A software robot can’t deviate from the task that you have assigned him. If there is a problem, he stops or sends an e-mail. You set everything up yourself beforehand. That is safe: the risk of error is minimal. You control yourself and receive a notification if something goes wrong. So the robot does not do anything you do not want, but: it does not do anything anymore. Now that RPA is embedded, many companies are looking for a ‘next step’. Cognitive automation (such as Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing or Machine Learning) seems to be an ideal addition. These technologies have a self-learning algorithm and mimic the reasoning ability of people. They learn, ‘think’ and decide on the basis of previously acquired information and experiences. That offers enormous opportunities, but I also like to make a comment. This cognitive automation is often very error prone. After all, the algorithm makes its own decisions without informing you. Then it may be that the robot once takes a different path than you approach specifically intended. Therefore, you should clearly identify which process you want to automate, so that you know exactly which technology fits. And keep an eye on the results in the interim.

“Thanks to robotisation, there are 58 million more jobs in 2022”

  1. RPA becomes more accessible

In the past five years, it became increasingly cheaper to implement software robots. As a result, RPA has also become accessible to smaller organizations. If you use this software in combination with cloud services, you do not have to set up your own data center. This saves maintenance and management costs. RPA is also a solution for accountants, civil-law notaries or transporters, because the software can process enormous amounts of information in a short time.

  1. Robots provide more jobs

A question that engages many employees: will the software robots shorten our jobs? On the contrary! The World Economic Forum calculated that there will be 58 million more jobs in 2022 thanks to robotization than at present. Because organizations are using increasing numbers of robots, suppliers also have to create, configure and maintain more robots. And people are still needed for that.

Advice: start small

RPA is an efficient tool that is increasingly deploying companies. But how do you implement software robots in your business processes? My advice is: start small. You do not have to automate a complex process immediately. Start with a simple process, analyze how that goes and build up your robotization plan step by step.





You undoubtedly have thousands of future plans in your head. About the things you still have to do, the goals you want to achieve and the people you want to share your life with. But sometimes it’s true that you do not have the time to do everything …  or maybe this just seems like that. Have you ever thought that you are only wasting your time and life?

It may be that you invest your time in things that are not necessary  or that require too much of your time without you realizing this. Do you really not have enough time or do you simply spend your time on things that lead nowhere? Read on and find out.

“The past has fled, that what will come is absent, but the present is yours.”

Arabian saying-

1. You invest your time in something that yields nothing

You need moments where you allow yourself some distraction and where you release yourself from your professional responsibilities. However, if you spend most of your time on “distraction,” you will eventually feel like you have not done anything all day. Therefore ensure a balance between work and distraction. Choose activities that really mean something and that you have something to offer and reduce activities that do not.

Activities that give you the feeling that you are wasting your life include excessive alcohol use, hours in front of the television and always immersing yourself in social media. If you want to be with your friends, then look for an alternative. For example, go camping or cook together and simply spend time together. Choose activities that will help you improve your relationships and lead to the life you want.

2. You are unable to improve your skills

People are programmed to learn new things. One way to waste your life is by not giving yourself the chance to learn and grow as much as possible . Do you remember what we said about investing your time in activities that do not give you anything? Well, an excellent alternative is to use that time for something constructive, such as doing thinking games or teaching yourself a new skill.

Put your brain to work and challenge yourself as much as possible. Doing games like crossword puzzles and sodoku will stimulate your brain and it will not be long before you are addicted to the mental challenge they offer you. Another great alternative to help your mind develop is by learning new skills, from learning to play an instrument to learning a new language. Do you prefer something that costs less effort? Then simply read a book.

“Learning how to learn is the most important skill for education and this should be explained during the very first lessons.”

-John Seymour-

3. You have negative conversations

Negative conversations are terrible time wasted. And if you yourself are the subject of the negative conversation, then this is even worse. Keep in mind that what you think becomes reality. Are you aware of what you say every time you lose out in negativity during a conversation or during your daily activities? Or how nice you are against yourself? When you are faced with a challenge and have already given up in your mind, failure is almost inevitable.


Of course it is not easy to break this habit, because we are not necessarily aware that we have this habit at all. What you have to do is to keep an eye on what you are saying and that way you will gradually change the message you send out. Also distracting and engaging your thoughts will help you to reduce those negative messages.

4. You do not make plans for the future

How do you see yourself in ten years? What would you like to be concerned with at this point in your life? With what tools do you see yourself doing this? Although you certainly should not forget to live in the present moment , the future should not be forgotten. Setting goals motivates you to move on and helps you avoid wasting your life and passing it away meaninglessly. Goals allow you to carve out a path and make you feel as if there is something you are working towards to improve and develop yourself.

“The future has many names. He is unreachable for the weak. He is unknown to the anxious. He is an opportunity for the brave. “

-Victor Hugo-

Many people almost live like zombies. They wake up in the morning, eat something, go to work and return home in the evening. Every day is the same and when they finally make time to reflect on their lives, they feel empty. This happens because they do not set goals for themselves.

Focus on one or two important goals and then on some less important ones . How about joining the Iron man in 2030? This triathlon provides even the best athletes with a challenge and is an admirable goal for anyone. Once you have established the larger goal for yourself, you can focus on less important short-term goals. This year you will complete a half marathon and next year a complete and so on.

Do not even give yourself the chance to waste your life. Take advantage of everything around you so that you can grow and improve. The best thing you can do is live life to the fullest; you can never change the past.
