Prepare Yourself Properly for the Coming Day

This morning, I woke up, yet again, at my couch.

It happens more often lately, because the days are packed, and when I finally sit down at my own spot, at my own house, sleep kicks in fast. It’s actually quite nice when you are used to it.

This couch is really easy on my mucles and bones. Never do I wake up with a back or neck pain. It’s just comfortable.

Anyway, I woke up at 04:00 AM this monday morning. I light up a sigaret and wonder what to do next. If I walk to my bed, I might not be hearing my 05:45 and 06:00 alarms. But I need to take some more rest. So I decide to lie down in my bed and fortunately, I do not sleep anymore. I just rest there a bit.

It eventually took me about two hours to do what I needed to do to close my door te get going. Put some coffee in, checked my mail, cleaned up the mess from last night, setup some mailaccounts, shower and shaving and many more small things I usually do not have time for in the morning. This morning I made the time.

It’s actually quite relaxing to do this. At 07:35 I stepped in the bus and was enroute. When I had to wait for ten minutes on the bus, I realised I could be writing an article. So I dropped by sigarette and jumped into my notes. Why not write about the relaxed and efficient morning I had prepraring for this new week. It might give you some context on why you could do something about the start of your day. In this case, today is the beginning of a week full of interesting stuff. Possibily, probably?

It feels great to have finally managed to get this morning thing done in a prepared way.

Keep in mind that not one morning is the same. For me, it is usually a bit rushed. We can at least aim to improve the very early and dark mornings to make it more relaxed. And prepare yourself better as a result.

More on self discipline and self improvement later. Step by step.

One Step Towards Better Health

There are many stairs to be taken. Little over 2 years ago I started walking the stairs towards better health and eventually a better me. It all started with my bad state of physical well being. Even though I was training intensively and becoming bigger and stronger every month deep down my body got fucked up very badly. I was suffering from Crohn’s disease. The more I trained, the more I ate the sicker I got. Then one day I was playing a football match and injured my back. Spent 4 weeks in bed. Couldn’t even visit the toilet to take a shit. Oh the joy. Didn’t manage to wrap my head around the fact I was focusing so much on physical strength yet my back mussels failed me in such a horrible way.

Doctors didn’t help me at all. Only thing they did was trying to fight the symptoms. They didn’t have a clue what was going on with my bowels and not the faintest idea about what was the root cause of my weak lower back. Never occurred to them those 2 problems could be related. Came up with some experimental autoimmune suppressing medication they wanted me to take for a year to see if it might possible maybe work. Yea right, nice story bro but I am not going to be some kind of guinea pig. Told them I will figure it out myself.

That was a major leap of faith in myself. I didn’t have any medical background nor did I have any idea how the body worked and which nutrients it needs to function properly. Goddamn what a stairs it was and still is. Many lessons were learned, even more mistakes were made and corrected. Little by little and step by step. With all the knowledge gained standing all the way up here and looking all the way down there, it’s hard to imagine I once stood there.

I could talk many more hours and hours about my story but I won’t. I could talk about what not to do and not to eat but I will not do that either (experienced in my personal life that isn’t the stairs to take). Instead I will give you some useful information about the food I started eating and changed my life. I will show you why you should include them into your diet. Eventually you will know so much good food to eat there simply isn’t any room left for all the crap.
