So... last entry was on mental stretching and having somewhat wider world view and bigger picture in tact. This one will be on physical part: exercising, moving, doing.
Anything: walking, running, swimming, yoga, jogging, climbing, boxing, lifting... What you do, what is your favourite? Do you do it separately or just combine in your daily activities, like - walking your dog longer, maybe your work requires run or walk, constant moving? Is it your profession: sports or you just go to swim in local water place doesn't matter it's cold or warm outside? What best results you hit yet? What is it you want to achieve? Myself I just love to move, if I don't move, it seems like I'm dying, brain doesn't get enough of oxygen, no endorphins, mood get's waaaay to low. Do you over-work, over-exercise often? How many lazy days you have in a week? All this is sooo exciting :D
I love swimming BTW, what is you fav sports? Someone uses smart bracelets?
Maybe you play competitive sports: football, baseball, rugby. Martial arts? On martial arts I think it's important tool for self competence in a manner not to fight but knowing that you actually can do it: fight, it means your tension in bit, say, awkward situations might be lower or not existing. BTW, just a thought, but some guys are really good in verbalise them-selves out of trouble, that's good protection as well. Team sports also bring some communication in the place, which is always healthy day exercise as well + in warmer season it might bring you out into the sun - important too.
And shortly on diet: I am not exactly sure about younger people, since I ate drunk and used all sorts of sh***t, so is it interesting to them, I am not sure. Still.. the younger you start to build up your biological system we call body, the longer and happier it will last. Again, in dieting I never met anyone, who has it sorted completely, diets that people I met used: vegan, vegetarian, keto, Mediterranean, fasting, intermediate fasting, raw food, fruitarian, raw vegan, water diet-detox days in intervals, tea diet-detox in intervals, gluten-free diet and I guess, that is it. Usually people, who are more aware and conscious about, what they eat and how much, are counting calories a bit, eating less fatty and sugary food and trying to exercise. There are many indicators on, what is ok and not so much on the products labels as well: red, yellow, green colouring of fat, sugar, salt in the product can tell you, what to pick best, especially knowing this limit for kcal/day for adult - 2500. For some hours for eating doesn't matter, for others eating in the evening is slow torture sentence in fast evolving obesity. Some mix stuff: eating some particular diet, not exceeding particular number of kcal/day, doing some fasting too. I think like in exercising here is anything adjusted to a person. Never mind that, if too strict, you can end up losing your healthy style constantly because natural ways of our psyche needs freedom and constant restriction that can't vary and have days off seems like a prison, I wouldn't suggest that.
And few words on addictive substances like nicotine, alcohol, caffeine. Not long ago even doctors claimed that nicotine is healthy in small amounts (well not so long ago Sun was turning around Earth, so no surprises), so now it's still believed alcohol and especially caffeine is healthy in considerate portions too... Again, I'm not telling to be perfect but if you use something, never judge anyone self medicating on heroin, since the point is the same everywhere: if you can't calm down and stay uplifted without your "small sins", the other person can't too... although judging in general is hard thing to handle. Stay healthy, stay clean and let your energy brighten your and your friend's day. Whoop whoop!!! fella or a gal, whoop whoop :P
