Your Secrets To A Healthy Lifestyle

What are your secrets about a healthy lifestyle. With the raise of junk food and all kind of diseases it must be a alarm sign to us all and especially for us because we spend most of the day on our computers.

I have been spending most of time on the computer since I am 14 and back then I had a desktop computer with proper brightness which I loved. What I developed with time is Chronic Dry eyes because I had a laptop with a lot of brightness due to a repair. Yes, bad luck you say but it was kinda a warning as well. With laptops we tend to forget our posture since we use it on our beds and all kind of different chairs since it's so small but I will tell you this is why I prefer a desktop computer. When you are sit on a desk, you are WAY WAY WAY more concentrated. I tried researching a lot on a dry eye recovery and the only solution is to stop going on the computer (sucks for us Im'ers) and have a healthy diet focused on eye health and in a few months it should get back to normal.

Back to health, what are your secrets to a healthy lifestyle because us IM'ers have higher IQ's then the normal right hahahha just a joke. I believe the best is to really take it simple just like we do in our online businesses. We try to have the maximum results with simple things. Honestly, I see all these guys taking creatine supplements and focusing on muscle mass but for me health is just not about muscle mass. It's about cardio, flexibility (mine is terrible). For the muscles, I suggest getting a 10 pounds dumbell and just try focusing on lifting every muscles thats it! We all know if you don't keep your muscles active bad things will happen.

My personal secret is 4 simple things : Green Tea (just amazing), fruits and vegetables focused, medium or light intensity cardio for 30 minutes a day (go to a gym ) and I hate to say it but Sex-Masturbation (yes its good for the health). Those are 4 things we should almost focus on EVERY DAY besides the sex thing but I believe it's insanely healthy that's why. I believe the most natural thing we use or eat, the better! Eat everything that's biological, gluten free and all of other bad crap.

That's how simple I think it really is! If we focus on a plan every single day, in the end it's gonna work. While the dry eyes ( it can get back to normal with time) cause me extremely high level of anxiety and stress, those 5 things daily are just the leading path to a very healthy lifestyle.Believe me, simplicity is the best thing in life and again health is just about being consistent.

And We seem to be all in the MMO niche but just after writing this text, man does the health niche is a big one guys, its the big fish in the pound for sure.

    The only concern I have is, while a healthy routine will cure your dry eyes, the masturbation will make you go blind. You need to rethink your priorities. :p

    I get up and move around frequently, get plenty of sunshine (Vit D3 deficiency is deadly). I refuse to drink fluoridated water. I stay away from packaged foods and cook from scratch and buy organic whenever humanly possible. Every now and again I allow myself a homemade something or other that is totally unhealthy, though - like cheesecake, or sugar cookies. Nothing wrong with a little soul food if you keep it down to infrequent.

    I try to be outside barefoot every day to ground the electromagnetism in my body correctly, and do nature immersion as often as possible.

    I use the old fashioned non-toxic cleaners such as vinegar, salt, baking soda instead of coating my home in toxins and try to live as far away from major cities as possible even though it hurts my wallet a little to do so.

    I stay as far away from doctor's offices as I can get and use food as a prevention and cure as much as possible, herbals, too - but I study those herbs up, down, and sideways before I use them AT ALL.

    My main hobby involves me in exercise out in nature.

    I try to laugh as often as possible, and have gone as far to even smile a lot (which coming from me is pretty scary). I try to be nice to people as much as humanly possible, too - nice spreads better than some people realize. When frustrated enough, though - I still tongue lash and vent when I feel it's really called for so I don't hold a lot of bad juju inside.

    I also try to learn something new every day to keep my brain from atrophying.

        Ricky is around 16 years old now. I didn't realize he was that old until a few months back when I spoke with my sister about his health. The bone was compromised from the cancer and he's now pretty arthritic and generally failing. I thought he was only around 12 and was really concerned about what I needed to do for him. I can control the pain, but he'll never be right again. At his age after his health issues, if he remembers to wake up again in the morning, it's a good day.

        He's older than dirt, and I'll lose him soon. What's his secret to longevity (he's between 105 and 120 in human years)? What kept him alive when he should have been too far gone to help? Love, determination, and curiosity. Keeping life interesting and exploring with a best pal.

        Don't write a lot of "so sorry" stuff over this one. This dog is remarkable. He was on death's door when I got to him - which I thought was at around 9 to 10 years - he completely recovered from his cancer and has had a spectacular life since. He's done and seen more in the last 3.5 or 4 years than most people ever do.........and he walked square on all 4s, and even trotted again.

        He still has a shine in his eyes, but mostly sit's under a tree with a water dish when we go somewhere - unless there's water. He loves to swim. It's easy on his bones, too.

        Frankly, you can have longevity, but there comes a time when you can't forego the inevitable. The healthy lifestyle just makes sure you have your wits about you in your golden years instead of wasting them laying in an institution, holding your dolls, and pooping yourself.

          I have a very specific health & fitness plan that I follow which focuses on a range of key categories of health. I do not drink or bathe in tap water for a range of reasons (the cumulative affects of tap water exposure are very degrading to your quality of life). I don't eat GMO foods and stick to clean sourced organic choices. I use plant derived NON GMO supernutritionals everyday for nutrition (your body assimilates this style of supernutritional better than any other - hands down). I follow a weekly fitness plan targeted to strength and endurance (I like long distance trail running, hiking, and mountain biking).

          I have been doing this since I left the Military in the 90's and I have no chronic issues and I feel great everyday! I feel very fortunate to have great health but I work at it day after day.

            That's the formula! In the past few months I've lost Doodah (dog) and two of my cats to old age and the debilitation that is part of aging. My vet pointed out that ,u animal companions live to very old age - for the very reasons you mention above.

            When you have to let go of loved pet - what counts is the quality of life and the memories you created together. You feel grateful for the time you had - rather than grief over the natural order of things.

    I benefit from workouts. I watch people workout as I pass by the gym and feel happiness that I am not in that stinky place with them being subjected to the stinks, questionable sanitation, and awful racket that may be music to their ears but not mine. Feeling happy is said to be good for the health.

    I run five times a week and it is the best work out for my cardio health and my legs. I also only eat meat and allow myself guilty eating pleasures on saturdays and sundays while sticking to health foods on week days. I am starting yoga at a slow pace too.

    I am happy with my physical and emotional health.

      Yep, l gave up breakfast food years ago, and haven't looked back.

      Or instead of breakfast food with little nutrition, (except the two vitamin tablet powder they put in, so they can print the nutrition BS on the side of the pack) with milk, l instead have a banana with an apple and almonds with honey or a banana with kiwi or strawberry's, etc.

      Makes a big difference to your health.


      I also do Pilates twice a week, one the conventional way and another l include a few gym type exercises as well.


      This means the usual once or twice a year sore back is a thing of the past, as well as feeling good or less depressed in the morning l do it.


      I also lead a healthy diet although, l do have a coffee and cake a few times a week, but being on this sometimes nightmare Laptop, l need to relax now and then, so!!! :rolleyes:


      As for the sex thing, in the west we believe it is a good thing, and if you are young and healthy and don't go overboard it can be, but....


      l tend to go with the Chinese or Indian way of seeing this, which is preservation, in later years prolongs health or helps make you look younger than you are.


      It can also help with spiritual attainment, strength, mental sharpness, and a host of other benefits.


      Leonardo-da-Vinci, Henry Ford and possibly Edison practiced this philosophy and lived well into their 80's, (out of the norm back then) so it is worth further research.


      It is also interesting to note that some mentally insane patients tend to go seriously overboard in this area, but Doctors don't mention this to mainstream society for some reason, probably too controlling?

        I'm doing my best to keep things simple. I just listen to my body. Regular breakfasts, workouts, fresh air and positive mind - looks like it's working for now.

    I take breaks every few hours. I don't eat too much junk because I have to be in front of the monitor for long periods and I don't get to move too often. I don't do it on a regular basis but I also run in the morning if I have the time or if my body cooperates.

    Smoke about 5 packs a day, drink alcohol by the gallon, do as many drugs as I can get my hands on.
    But, most importantly, watch as much TV as humanly possible.

    Sorry, just figured SOMEBODY had to say it.

    Actually, I quit smoking years ago.
    Exercise daily.
    Drink a few beers now and again, and a glass of red wine.
    And fish as much as humanly possible.

    First, let me tell you that I haven't shaved in like 6 months.

    That makes me VERY healthy. Because like. Uhm. Shaving cream is very bad for you.



    Also, I try to walk at LEAST 2 miles per day.



    And, I never eat fast food more than twice per day.

    (Hey, if I walk 2 miles per day.. I can eat what I want!)

    PS: I try to eat apples too. Candy apples.

    Hope this helps.
