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.

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.

>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.
