Take a break

Beware the bareness of a busy life.

Socrates

I love being busy. Actually, I love it so much that five days of “holiday” without anything to do drive me crazy! But still one has to make time for leisure and fun.

It is important to do nothing every now and then, it gives your life quality. Take the time to enjoy what you have. Take the time to do nothing once in a while.

Think!

To find yourself, think for yourself.

Change!

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

Be satisfied. Now.

He who is not contented with what he has would not be contented with what he would like to have.

Socrates

Being satisfied and happy can not be achieved by constantly buying new stuff.

As long as you are not satisfied with what you have right now, as long as you do not appreciate your belongings you won’t find satisfaction by looking at outer circumstances. Satisfaction comes from the inside.

You will never find salvation in consumerism.

Don’t like working out? Listen up!

No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training.
What disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.
Socrates

Birthday post, *yay* 🙂 This is a personal one, for sports is a pretty important topic to me and I love talking about it.

You are young and capable! As long as you are not physically handicapped you have no reason for not working out. It does not even count to say “I don’t like it”. If you told your parents you didn’t like studying in high school they were damn right to make you so either way.

With physical exercise it is almost the same but there is no one to kick your ass if you back out. So you have to be the one kicking your own ass, you have to be the one that tells yourself: Keep it up, feel a little pain daily but a lot of strenght in the long term.

The benefits are endless! Not only will you life healthier, you will also feel more confident, be more happy and less stressed. Sports and exercise are perfect for everyone and there is such a diversity of sports that you definitely will find something you peronally like!

I challenge you to start worling out immediately, starting with this day! On top of that, drink lots of tasty, tasty water. Why? This is not a diet you say and I agree. But water and training will increase your well-being and as important as that your well-feeling extremely. So start today, don’t even THINK about excuses, I dare you! Get up, put on your shoes, start running, put on your swim gear, start swimming, get on the floor, start push-ups. Start now and do not stop, make this a damn beautiful habit!
