health & fitness

I believe that all pillars of life are more or less equally important to achieve balance and harmony that I’m seeking. It’s hard to imagine being able to get there without taking care of the body, emotions or mind.

However, I strongly believe that the “Health & Fitness” category is a crucial 1st step for most people (at least for me). No meditation technique, positivity or affirmations can fix issues in the physical domain which is the body. 

Even Ancient Romans acknowledged that by saying: “Mens sana in corpore sano” (a healthy mind in a healthy body).

It’s not a secret that physical exercise and health are an essential part of mental, emotional and psychological well-being. 

Obviously this is a huge topic and there are people dedicating their whole lives and careers to study this in great detail, but I will try to keep it as simple and easy to understand as possible. 

The purpose of this whole website is to share my journey of improving my life and myself in real time and this category is no exception. I only focus on things that are important to me and that I am actually doing myself.

I will update this category (and every other category) as I try out and implement new things and methods, so this will grow over time. 

At the moment there are 2 main things that I am focusing on in this category:

  • Working Out
  • Healthy Eating

Before we continue, I want to make it clear that everything written here is just my own opinion and research that I have done on these topics. 

Nothing here should be taken as advice or recommendation in any way, shape or form. 

I am NOT a doctor nor a physical therapist, nor any other health care specialist.

I simply share things that I am doing myself and why am I doing them. 

So before implementing or trying out anything you read here please use your common sense and contact your doctor or any other health care professional if needed! 

Let’s take responsibility for our own decisions and actions.

Now when this is out of the way, let’s take a look at what I’m working on within the “health & fitness” category.

Working Out

working out

Moving the body is crucial, no matter how you do that. I believe that there is no one right way or method, because we all are different. We all have different preferences, goals and backgrounds.

Some might prefer the gym, some might prefer running, calisthenics, yoga, stretching, dancing and so on. 

My tip: do whatever resonates with you! It doesn’t matter what others do and what is considered to be “cool” or “normal”.

If you wanna bulk up and lift heavy stuff – go to the gym. If you wanna run a 10k or a marathon, go train for that. If you wanna be more flexible, do stretching or yoga and so on. You get the point.

In the following article I’ll go more in detail about what types of workouts I do myself, why I do them, what I want to achieve and why.

Healthy Eating

healthy eating

Good ol’ clean food, ey? I wish that all delicious foods would be equally good and healthy for the body, but as most of us know that’s not the case.

Over the years I have learned that food is crucial when it comes to health and body. It affects your whole body (even your mood, performance, ability to think clearly and much more).

After all, food is fuel for the body. And if you wanna be like a jet and fly high and achieve your goals, you can’t fuel yourself with low-quality diesel. You ain’t gonna fly high or far for too long…

In this article we will go deeper into food and I will reveal what healthy eating means to me, why am I doing it, how I plan to tackle this and much more.

As I mentioned before, this category will be expanded as I explore and implement more topics related to “health & body” like sleep, hormones etc. 

Since it’s not sustainable nor needed to tackle everything at once (and I have plenty of other categories to focus on), I started only with 2 most important ones to me right now – working out and getting my eating habits in check. 

So don’t be mistaken to think that it’s all that I think being physically healthy means 😉
