“Modern man is mentally overstimulated, physically inactive and overfed. Rely on meditation, exercise and fasting to restore your natural balance.”
I heard this quote by Naval Ravikant and it really stuck with me. I have lived by these words the last month and my personal progress has been astonishing. My mental clarity, energy and confidence have exploded.
– To counteract mental overstimulation, look over your mental diet. Minimize screen time and social media and be selective with what you allow into your mind. Take time to reflect, meditate and disconnect from all external input for some time daily.
– To counteract physical inactivity and a sedentary lifestyle, you gotta exercise on a daily basis. Frequency is more important than intensity. Also, do something to maintain a good posture. It’s crucial for feeling your best.
– To counteract overeating, practice contentment in everything you do. Be selective of what you put into your body. Pursuing pleasure for its own sake destroys motivation, and gathers momentum to pursue comfort. Fasting in this case includes abstaining from porn and other type of external pleasure-seeking.
