What do you rolls do to keep a healthy body and mind?
I find that one of the best ways to do both consistently is training yourself in martial arts. An good starting point for learning shaolin kung fu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f8zb_QKZEo .

One of the ways I train mentally is by doing regular meditation. If you are new to meditaion and don't know what style to pick, start with Zazen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL2XUTeoUsM (turn on captions). Some other techniques that I like are detailed here: https://tricycle.org/magazine/tibetan-buddhist-meditation/ .
I think it's important to learn to feel what the chinese call qi. That does not mean you have to become religious or convince yourself that it is anything more than a phychological phenominon, but the reason I think it's important is that it can be used to reach a meditative state even when going about your daily activities. I'm not an expert, but I think a good method is to sit or lie in a position that allows you to breath with your stomach (make sure to remove constraints like belts), close your eyes and take slow, deep breaths with your stomach. As you breath in, imagine energy slowly rising from the base of your spine to the top of your scalp, and as you slowly breath out imagine that energy sinking from your scalp back down to the base of your spine.


Forgot to mention, in keeping a healthy mind it is also important to keep it active rather than just meditating all the time. Set up a routine of studying, mental arithmetic, playing music and whatever else.


Physically: I hit the gym twice a week. It's annoying but helps to keep me at a reasonable weight.

Mentally: Talking with people on irc is my main source of human contact since I'm mostly alone and work and have no friends. I'd probably go nuts without it. The gym thing also helps mentally. I went full Hikimori for a while and that really screwed with my head. Thought my figs were coming to life and trying to kill me in my sleep. Getting some fresh air really helped with that.


I used to love lifting. I did a low volume near daily routine for a while and got burnt out because I just don't have the frame to gain mass. Right now I'm thinking about switching to a carnivore diet, with minimal veggies at first and a switch to mostly bodyweight exercise with the goal of getting leaner but staying more or less the same weight. The hardest part of all of this is quitting drinking.


i haven't been doing it lately, but i find that mediatating for at least 15-30 minutes a day keeps my mind at easy. also keeping a morning and night routine helps me feel more structured.


Drink tea and value happiness over perfection.

Exercise from chores and walks. I bought some weights from craiglist and do reps every other day.


I do nothing, my body is trash. My only saving grace is that I have a good diet.


Do long walks


>What do you rolls do to keep a healthy body and mind?
As of lately? Nothing. A few good years ago I was running every day and eating healthy, but for the past few months I've become apathetic and lethargic. I have a severe sugar addiction that's caused all kinds of mental and physical problems for me, although luckily they aren't permanent…
I go for walks at night usually. Its been getting warmer so I'll probably have to push it deeper into the night since I'm not fond of heat exhaustion which I've suffered from numerous times in the past already because of the hellscape I live in.

If it helps my case I eat only organic and non-GMO foods. I haven't touched anything with artificial food coloring, preservatives, aluminum-based leavening, etc. in years. Fast food is a distant memory for me.

Good god..


Are you OP? It certainly has been a while. I remember when this thread first began.


I lift 10kg weights & walk a lot.

i try to get a lot of sunlight
i find i sleep better and feel more relaxed if I was able to spend time outside in the sun moving around


ehehehe my dog used to do this when she was a puppy
She'd get tired/bored on long walks and just plop on the ground with no warning. I ended up carrying her up a big hill once.

I have been going to the gym for three months now.
I'm still fat, my rolls kick in while sitting, and my gut still protrudes my clothing, but I'm getting quite nice. My neck is all turtle like for example.
I have also been going to swimming classes ever since a clinic suggested it to me, I was having nausea just from moving around and he suggested it to me because my neck was all straight and stretched in the wrong manner.
It also lets me fight my hunchback. Both gym and swimming do.

Helping your gut biome is a pretty underrated part of being healthy. I can't tell you how many people just have chronic stomach pain from having destroyed their stomachs with junk food. So be sure to add some fermented food to your diet.

Bruh this yakult is iffy, I'm not having whatever it has fermented, it's probably some black fungus thing


one thing I don't get is that why would eating fermented food help your tummy

whatever is fermenting in there is probly not what's in your stomach, right?


Usually lactobacter, which is part of your normal gut flora. It's not going to hurt you, but it's questionable how much fermented foods and other "pro-biotics" actually help with digestive issues. More or less in the same category as other "superfoods" and health supplements.


naruhodo, thanks for the explanation!


Keep at it!

> healthy body
easier to answer. Morning stretch and exercise, evening run + stretch and exercise, and weightlifting every other day. I still have a crap diet but I'll keep growing!
> healthy mind
Not using badvibes imageboards (like 4ch) was one of the best choices for me. I was always told that not always concerning myself with misery, fear, and anger was somehow a weakness, but I've found a lot more peace and moderation in simply existing as whatever the heck I am instead of always worrying and fighting all the time. Since then, a change on perspective in life has helped me a lot. Realizing that failure is a crucial part of learning and change, that I can take difficulties in life as challenges and grow from every experience, and this recent profound sense of sonder. I don't have to validate myself or my beliefs, it's okay for me to be wrong and to learn, I don't need to put other people down or elevate myself, life will be okay, and It's okay to take things one step at a time and steer a ship in increments.

So much lead to this 180 shift in beliefs, values, etc. I like to believe it is because I had made a decision to be honest with God and love people instead of being a self-assured opinionated dogmatist.

Basically, I went _Self-assured Cyberpunk Doomer_ => _Transforming Solarpunk Bloomer_ in boardspeak. I'm convinced that everyone has a profound potential to transform, everyone has such complex and fulfilling lives, hopes, dreams. It's all so beautiful.

You know that meme (pic related)? I feel like the opposite, like I'm just beginning to realize the value and beauty of the world, and I want to be entangled in the lives of all the beautiful minds that exist here - but I'm just one basilisk instead of some blue pseudo-god.

So if I usually don't post online, then why share this? Because I think that somehow this time-capsule might help someone somewhere to find the hope and passion to push through dark nights and life a phoenix burn anew!


It is great that you're in the right path sushi, moreso if you got there from self realization.
I kinda dealt with a bad year and from then on I decided to change. It took someone taking advantage of me to realize that I had to change a lot.
Keep on nicely sushi, you can do it


I have been thinking about qi lately, I think I have used it in my life and not known that was what I was doing. I tried to learn taiji from videos but I think I really need an irl instructor… I'm going to try that shaolin video you shared though, any similar resources would be appreciated. I think practicing music exercises similar "muscles".


I am inexperienced but self taught.
I have only been practicing the basic 18 forms shi-ba-shi and some standing like a tree.

Some resources on the "theory" of tai chi chuan:

Get a teacher if possible.


You most certainly need a teacher. Not just a teacher, but a good teacher; I've seen bad teachers who move a bit too mechanically.
I had a teacher for a year or so, sometimes I still try to do taijiquan with what little I remember from his teachings. But there are subtleties that only a teacher seeing you can point out to you.


Most people today do not possess enough flexibility nor good enough posture to be able to sit still for long periods of time.
Neither do they possess the lack of mental tension or mental fortitude necessary to maintain unwavering focus on experiential objects.

If you want to be able to sit in a meditation pose for long periods without injury or bodily tension,
you must be able to completely fold your body in half standing up straight (putting your head through your legs)
and your thighs should drop to the floor without tension when doing a half butterfly:

If you don't want to do yoga and jump into meditation immediately, a stiff couch that you don't sink into very much and doesn't recline much is the ideal meditation seat for most western people today, along with a simple guided meditation program such as https://thepiratebay.org/description.php?id=22379780

If you want to see fast results in meditation, sit as still as possible upright for 4 hours every single day,
observing without reacting to various body sensations until they disappear.
Meditation is like lifting weights except you won't injure yourself at any point, you can keep getting stronger indefinitely.


Super hidden esoteric information dump here, I've tried all this myself, it works.

To lose all your body fat very fast without getting sick, you can do a juice fast for a few months with coffee enemas.
For doing a juice fast follow all the instructions in this book (you will also need a champion juicer and a large supply of organic vegetables):
Also drink a pinch of borax and iodine dissolved in boiling water every single day, after a couple of months working your way up to 3 pinches.

Lifting weights causes injury, I would recommend doing this traditional yoga program: https://www.yogaindailylife.org/system/en/level-1
And doing the 6 strength building exercises in this book: https://www.pdfdrive.com/convict-conditioning-e51856914.html
Do these exercises each day.




…you really should not do enemas if you don't have to. Like, if your colon is completely clogged up or you need to administer medication to your colon. Enemas don't do much for you other than loosening up impacted material. Unless you've gone three days without a shit, you really shouldn't try an enema without professional direction. Sticking anything up your own ass is inherently dangerous, it can cause infections at best and punctures at worst.

Take it from a guy who sticks stuff up his ass on a regular basis, it's dangerous.


>Take it from a guy who sticks stuff up his ass on a regular basis
excellent, you seem cautious and knowledgeable - how dangerous are these things really?

my friend does an enema somewhat regularly, but not more than like once a week maximum. they um… like things to go deep. i worry about them a little bit, not really about the enemas but how deep the toys they use go. but also they seem to know what they're doing, so i don't want to interrupy.

should i be more worried about the enemas? should i be more or less worried about the depth they go with their toys? they just do it with tap water and - although tap water is completely fine to drink here - i don't think it's clean/safe enough for this.

asking for a friend btw.


The danger is that it can open wounds in the colon, which is, as you can imagine, a very unclean place. Going deep with toys is also dangerous, sudden movements or reflexes can cause them to puncture or weaken intestinal walls. The tap water really isn't much of an issue, but the intestinal lining is much weaker than external skin. Forcing water into it too strongly can cause damage, and since internal nerves are much less precise than external nerves, it can be much more difficult to determine where exactly an issue is if one arises.

Due to medical conditions, I take some medications by suppository. I don't stick toys in my ass, but if I did, I would use lube and not go any deeper than 10cm. That's how far I put the end of the bottle before squeezing. I wouldn't be worried for your friend, but I would let them know to be careful. No sexual experience is worth a trip to the hospital.


If you don't mind me asking, what do you stuck up your ass?

==ALL WEIGHTLOSS SHORTCUTS ARE UNHEALTHY==, no exceptions. Pursue a sustainable and consistent routine, don't try to take shortcuts. At best these shortcuts will give you momentary results that quickly disappear, or you'll seriously hurt yourself. Exercise more, eat less, and be consistent.


Medicine. I take anti-inflammatories by suppository because of a colon disease. It is not fun, it is not sexual, and I get no pleasure out of it. If I could do it any other way, I would.


>Lifting weights causes injury
It can cause injury if done improperly or too aggressively. That doesn't mean it's not still the best way to actually become stronger. Bodyweight exercises are great since they cost very little and can be done in many places but they provide diminishing returns and can also cause injury if done in an unsafe manner. I've had more injuries with bodyweight exercises than with weights since it can be harder to quantify my limits with the former.
