Travel Update

Since Maja's passport expires next year, it would be a good reminder to all of you to check the validity of your passport and plan to renew it if it has less than a year of validity remaining. Many countries require a minimum of six months validity beyond your planned arrival date; it's essential to note that some destinations may have additional requirements. To ensure a smooth and hassle-free travel experience, renewing your passport well in advance is always best.

With that, you can avoid last-minute complications or travel disruptions. Delays in passport renewal processes can occur, especially during peak travel seasons or unforeseen circumstances.

Additionally, having a passport with a longer validity provides flexibility for future travel plans. It allows you to seize spontaneous travel opportunities or change your itinerary without worrying about passport expiration dates.

You should also always check the entry requirements and regulations of the respective embassies or consulates.

Something to think about

Another gem in James Clear’s Newsletter

"The most invisible form of wasted time is doing a good job on an unimportant task.”


"It generally feels better to run toward something than to run away from something. Focus on what is pulling you in, not what you're trying to avoid.”

Productivity Tips and Tricks

This week’s productivity tip is from James Clear, called habit stacking. Habit stacking involves pairing a new habit you want to establish with an existing one already part of your daily routine. By linking the new habit with a familiar one, you leverage the power of habit association to make it easier to stick to the new behavior.

For example, if you want to start a daily meditation practice, you could stack it onto your existing habit of brushing your teeth. Each time after brushing your teeth, you would immediately engage in a short meditation session.

By habit stacking, you eliminate the need to rely solely on willpower and increase the likelihood of successfully integrating the new habit into your routine.
