Your goal: To get back to mountaineering levels of fitness in the near future.

A book you read in 2020, that you recommend: I need to start reading, I am currently reading Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahenman, this is one of those healthy habits I need to build.

A tip / lifestyle change that we can make towards leaving the world a better place : Consume less, recycle and reuse more. For recycling to work practically, we need to be okay with buying used goods, cellphones, bags, clothes and a bunch of other stuff. We also need to learn to take care of what we have, using the right methods for cleaning and storing so that the goods we have will last longer.

Lesson learnt during the pandemic: The pandemic helped serve as a reminder of how fortunate I am in terms of life. Along with an increase in gratitude, a useful lesson I learnt via a friend’s Whatsapp share was on "Build to Adapt" from the essay “Bridge on the River Choluteca”.
