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.

Hottest day of the year so far at my place. Thank you for fridges & freezers.

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 ride the bicycle 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".
