The Bohol Forest is a man-made mahogany forest stretching in a two-kilometer stretch of densely planted Mahogany trees located in the border of Loboc and Bilar towns. .
If you visualize your success, the motivation to get there becomes that much stronger. So I bring you... the book cover design for Gui Ren! I played with several different designs but the final imagery was inspired when I wasn’t even conscious. 🌕 I woke up one morning from a dream in which I was repeatedly drawing a yellow circle in chalk. I filled it in, layered more color on top, and continued to trace the image on the ground. Now, yellow is not my favorite color, in fact it’s one of my least favorites. But when I woke I realized the immense significance of that simple dream:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
1. Circles are symbols of being whole, complete, and grounded
2. Chalk is a symbol most associated with education, learning, and knowledge
3. One of the only yellow-colored items I own is the very scarf that inspired this book
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
That yellow circle was a metaphor of the personal development and constant accumulation of knowledge that defined my journey through Asia. There is a beauty in simplicity. And this simplicity is Gui Ren.
Huge shoutout to @oneeyedpop for finalizing the design and being so supportive of my journey! Go check out his page, it’s full of epic creations 🐶
This guy is 100% my spirit animal right now 🐼 Getting excited for part 2 of Stranded in Asia at the @uapubliclibrary! Be there or miss out on these adorable pandas! 😉 #itsonmylist#strandedinasia#travelguide
36 SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN WAYS TO BOOST YOUR MEMORY 🧠
19. Turn off GPS
Turn off the GPS and flex your brain power a bit next time you’re driving about. One study evaluated the impact of using GPS on the hippocampus (an area of the brain heavily involved in memory and navigation) and the prefrontal cortex (a part of the brain that is used in decision-making and planning). The study showed that these two regions of the brain used for navigation aren’t as engaged when using GPS.
