IDLE BODY IS A BAD BODY

“Don’t just sit around.”


GET UP AND DO SOMETHING

During this quarantine, you have people who just lie around doing nothing. And the problems that stem from this can be a wide range of issues. Anything from unhealthy weight gain to blood clots from not allowing blood to flow properly. So you have to move around your apartment and get a good exercise in to stay in shape and healthy. Even stepping outside every now and then so you can get some good air and sunlight. Now for me, this is easy because I am an active person. But for someone who doesn’t exercise as much then you are more inclined to sit around the house and do even more of nothing. So get and start moving.

NOTHING OUTSIDE

Even when you leave your house and go into the world, nothing is really open. So when you do go outside it does get a little boring with nothing to do. You walk around doing the same thing and find your way back home. Trust me this is something I do everyday. And I have to say it’s very boring. So for now I try to get myself a really good walk in before heading home for the day.

THE BODY FOLLOWS THE MIND

When you are sitting around all day you will find yourself more sluggish. And you will feel more tired than you are but in reality your body is tricking itself into thinking you’re tired. So keep moving and keep safe. Inevitably you will start to make involuntary healthy bodily decisions.

HEALTH ON A BUDGET

“Eating healthy on the cheap.”


EAT WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD

There is this prevailing theory that in order to be able to eat good you have to spend a lot of money. But the reality is that it’s much easier than you think if you’re willing to put the time into caring what goes into your body. And here is where so many people give up. When you are working all day long the last thing you’re thinking about is meal preps. You just want to grab something quick and easy which will fill you up the quickest. And the problem with this logic is that this is how you gain the most bad weight. So what are the meals one should take into their bodies. Well that all depends on the goal you’re trying to meet.

STAY AWAY FROM FAST FOOD

I remember going to a McDonald’s eating from the dollar menu everyday. Which is very affordable but it’s one of the most unhealthy ways one can consume a meal. My pockets were fine but internally I felt like garbage. And that’s because eating from McDonald’s is the worst meal to consume on a daily basis. You continue to live like this and you’re only asking for long term effects. So I had to make a decision to keep eating this way or I would take on a new way of living. Well, you can image which road I decided to take in life.

ITS STILL YOUR LIFE

Me nor anyone else is going to make you eat the right way. You have to make that decision yourself. Because it’s not me who will have to deal later it’s your choice. But don’t say you didn’t have the opportunity. It’s a discipline thing that one has to consistently practice. It takes years to eat right and exercise even more diligently. The road is long but for most it pays off.

THE BODY IS A TEMPLE: CARING ABOUT WHAT GOES INSIDE

“We are pure in form.”


what goes inside

We often grab something to eat, downing it into our stomachs, not realizing what we are doing to our bodies. We engage in activities that can cause our bodies harm. And those side effects we don’t feel until time progresses. So I say, your body should be treated with care and it will continue to care for you for a long time. Now, so many people don’t look at the human body as this sacred temple to be cared for until they get older. Once they age and realize it, the damage is far along. So deal with the situation at a young age or deal later.

how we see ourselves

As you take a look in the mirror, do you like what you see? Because if you don’t it will show itself in the decision you make concerning your body. I walk the streets of New York all the time and see people jobbing and power walking. Then you see people shoving the greasy food down their throats. And for them, they are not too willing to give up the bad stuff to make their lives worth living. They also may not care how they see themselves, especially if no one else is checking for them. But we also have to take into account, keeping your body together just takes a lot of work. Work that is beneficial in the end, but hard in the beginning.

take the first step

In order for you to live that healthy life, you have to first start actively caring. Not just reading books and taking notes. That is the minor adjustments, you must do. Live the holistic life and hold true to it. Get yourself into a pattern so that it becomes what you do, and not a job. Because then you’ll start to get frustrated with the lifestyle. It has to be more than just exercise and eating right, it has to be a belief system.
