Well, that's a lot of personal tasks 😅 You can see that @todoist is by far my favorite app. I've been using it for over 7 years now and it's really my second brain. I cannot recommend it highly enough. 🙌

Now that 2022 has just begun, I give you some reading ideas from my favorite 2021 books that will help you better understand our world and crucial challenges we have ahead, organize yourself, and reflect on your life. 📚👇

goodreads.com/book/show/4012… This is the best book to build better habits and eliminate bad ones. I started an accountability group with @jcllobet after it and I've been working out, reading and learning Catalan 5 times per week since then. I can just say that it really works. 💪

goodreads.com/book/show/5818… Each chapter of this book tries to convince you of a different lifestyle that a person can have—most of them are contradictory. It’s a very important and nice existential exercise that we rarely do. Recommended by my good friend, @ahmaman_ ❤️

goodreads.com/book/show/2369… "Sapiens" is a very popular and must-read book on human history. It provides an exciting generic perspective on who we are and how we behave socially. It opened my mind to many topics. I enjoyed each page out of a total of +400. 🧠

goodreads.com/book/show/5227… In this book, @BillGates does an amazing problem solving exercise from an engineer mindset, in order to reduce carbon emissions to zero. Climate change may be the most difficult challenge in human history but reading real solutions gives a lot of hope. 🙌

After an extensive work experience as a designer and software engineer in several companies worldwide—from startups to large corporations—this year I’ve invested for the first time in a tech startup. 💸 This is the way I’ve chosen to be an active part of the startup ecosystem.

For 2022, I would like to: - Join and learn from the Barcelona startup investors communities, especially the women ones. 🧠 - Grow my portfolio with more early stage, socially responsible, tech startups based in Spain—preferably in Barcelona. ⬆️

Exercising from home was the safest option when I wasn't vaccinated yet. I chose @8fit app which has progressive workouts with your body weight. The idea is to progress in time and level per day by doing daily exercises even if it’s only 5 min long at their lowest level

After couple of months and I signed up for CrossFit classes. As a woman, when going to the gym I was only doing cardio. Learning to lift weights in professional classes at CrossFit has freed me from the big gender role stigma that prevents women from developing their muscles.

I was afraid of joining another male-dominated sport where I would feel left out. Far from it, the inclusion and community of the people at my box has helped me to fulfill the habit. We work out together doing the same exercises but each one at their own level, no comparisons.

Do you feel you don't have time to build the habit to working out? Reserving a time and place on your calendar is the key. In Crossfit you have to book classes in advance and you pay—a lot—for a fixed number of classes per week. Your loss aversion won't make it easy to skip them

Also, when working out by myself, Apple Fitness+ has helped me to complement activities such as rowing. Exercising is a great investment in mental and physical health with short and long term results and one of the few things in life that becomes more difficult to do as we age.

Lastly—and most importantly—whenever I train, I highly value the enormous privilege of having full locomotive capacity that I can develop. Not all of us have this luck and we shouldn’t take it for granted. What is your "must" habit that you recommend me for 2022? Happy Holidays!

Some of you asked me about my diet: It's based on ovo-vegetarianism and I quit alcohol, ultra-processed and added-sugar products. The only supplements I get are B12 vitamins (necessary) and pea protein isolate (optional)

If you want to improve your diet, you should read about the topic by local authors since gastronomy isn't universal. If you live in Spain, I read and recommend these books: - Favorite: goodreads.com/book/show/3036… by @Dimequecomes - goodreads.com/book/show/5320… - goodreads.com/book/show/4428…
