Depending on what your diet looks, you probably are getting your fair share amount of sugar. Especially processed sugar. Like in candy and cakes and sodas and ice cream. Most people don’t realize that sugar makes you fat. And you get fat by not eating fat. And by eating way too many processed simple carbs. Google it and start adding fats. Coconut oil. Avocados. Organic nuts and grass fed butter.
This is what I continue to tell myself everyday going to the gym. Just show up. Whether it hurts or its inconvenient. Or whether it’s late. Or you already went that day. Just show up. I think it’s the simplest thing I’ve learned about lifestyle design so far. If you want to get better. To grow. To build. The first step is you just have to show up. Everything else gets way easier after that. Think about it. You want to run a mile. Once you put on your shorts and shoes and go outside. You’ve shown up. Now it’s way easier. If you want to get fit, sleep better, eat better, think better? You just have to show up at the gym.
And don’t ever let someone tell you it’s not smart to go to the gym everyday. Those people are lazy and weak. It’s not smart to go ham on the same muscle group for hours a day. Everyday. But showing up at the gym? Every. Single. Day. Is the smartest thing you can do with your life. Just make sure you’re getting proper rest and health nutrition. Train like an Athlete. Eat like a Nutritionist. Work like a Billionaire. Sleep like a baby.

I wish I could make some of the famous people around our country know the truth about the connection between suicide and depression and violence and shootings and racism and all these thing being based off of nutrition and lifestyle. I wish they would put their money toward the education of nutrition on kids and teens and really make people more equipped to handle the real world. In my opinion, they should be focusing much more on nutrition and lifestyle design than any other aspect of school. Learning all of this awesome stuff means nothing if you don’t know how to properly fuel the vehicle that carries all the knowledge. Its much easier to take action in the world around you when you have a good steady routine diet. Lets spread the word. That’s my main goal. To do the little I can at the moment to spread the word on healthy lifestyle decisions.
There are many variations of breathing exercises that people do. One of my personal favorites is the ‘Wim Hoff’ method. Basically you’re using deep breathing techniques to open your body, lungs, blood vessels etc. By using his method. You can make the body more aware of how much oxygen each cell can handle. And it will compound itself into other things you do. The walking you do later that day, and the workout at the gym, or the sleep you get tonight will be greatly improved by opening up your body with this famous breathing technique.
