Learn A New Cooking Style
Whether you plan to visit Korea, or cook your own Korean food at home, pick up the cooking basics of this fascinating cuisine. Korean food stands out from other cuisines with many side dishes (banchan) that are served during meals. The number of side dishes can range anywhere from 2 to 12, but everyday meals feature at least a few. To get you started, get Maangchi’s Real Korean Cooking cookbook from MPH Bookstore. Learn how to make the country’s best dishes from this YouTube star and the world’s foremost authority on Korean cooking with her step-by-step photos.
Get Your Jog On
Jogging can lead to the release of endorphins, the chemicals in the brain that produce a sense of happiness and wellbeing. It can also help relieve stress and can improve your confidence and self-esteem. While the types of equipment needed by joggers is relatively limited, a good pair of running shoes is a must like the Skechers D’Lites. It has a chunky silhouette, air-cooled memory foam cushioning and a shock-absorbing midsole for all-day comfort.
Throw A Punch
To get better balance, power and agility, kickboxing is the answer. Almost everyone can benefit from this sport. Unlike most other types of exercise, kickboxing emphasizes on powerful movements. Head to Fitness Concept for your kickboxing training where it involves short bouts, two to three minutes long, of intense, repetitive movement — like hitting a punching bag over and over again and kicking and kneeing a pad someone else is holding.
Make Your Move
Playing chess helps unleash your originality because it activates the right side of the brain, the side responsible for creativity. And since a chess match requires fast thinking and problem-solving on the fly because your opponent is constantly changing the parameters, you’ll be honing in on your problem solving skills. Even when you’re travelling you’ll still be able to play a game of chess with this portable Mr DIY chess set in an easy carryall.
