[Sober Living] Jam In Moderation

From Friday AM to Sunday AM, I was voluntarily awake for about 60 hours. I took breaks, ate well, and slept, of course, but otherwise, almost all of my focus was spent capturing as information as possible. I didn’t work quite as hard as some people, but I’ll use myself as an example of why I think it’s important to pace yourself. Working to that degree of intensity works only if you take care of yourself.

[Sober Living] Life After Headaches

I’m writing this on the tail-end of a headache. It’s still in there, lingering; lumbering its way through my body. There’s still a massive pressure behind my eyes, in my neck, and in my ability to concentrate. Normally, all processes are clear, I can focus, and do my work unimpaired. Headaches are like a sudden inebriation. My concentration and willpower are massively impaired as I’m struggling to even want to continue writing about this experience.

[Applied Self-Confidence] Feel Confidently Healthy

Health plays a key role in our self-confidence. If I’m feeling even somewhat ill, it’s likely I won’t feel confident in myself. That’s obvious, sure, it’s just I think we typically only etiologically work on problems ranging from communication to physical health. We might accidentally overmedicate to sedate lingering health issues or eat poorly, causing us physical distress, causing us mental distress, causing us to lose our self-confidence. What can we do to fix that?

[Career Story] Well-Stocked Office Cube

“Oh, wow, you’re well-supplied[1]!” I’ve found a well-stocked workspace helps make work more efficient. If I keep certain things handy, then I’m less likely to be interrupted with small tasks, allowing me to focus on my present and most important task. When I don’t have the space available, I’ll keep the highlights in my workbag. Let’s cover some common and oddball things that have helped me out at work, which might help you out, too!

[Rowing Machine] 2018: Week 03 {244.4}

You sometimes might not realize how much the grime that’s accumulated in your system is affecting you until you start dislodging it. The stresses of life build up innocently. Too many days without getting enough sleep, not eating well, not drinking enough water, or not taking care of yourself can, like my rowing machine’s chain, generally lead to a build-up of gunk that probably slowed down my rowing stats for years… let’s compare next week?

[Rowing Machine] Two Five Three

I returned to fitness because my ambitions were being hindered by accidental obesity. Recovering the physicality of performing tasks that aren’t extremely difficult is one goal. That statement is broad enough to celebrate any smaller victory. Saturday at Tool, I was able to move between photogenic vantage points without being exhausted. Sure, that’s not much compared to athletes or what was once considered healthy. You’ve just got to remain positive. It’s so easy to regress!

[Float Tank] Physicality Of It

Having booked over forty float tank sessions within two years, clocking over seventy hours, I’d like to help demystify, clarify, and otherwise squeegee the misconceptions of what it’s like to rest in an epsom salt water bath in an occasional series. While I’d like to write objective, empirical data that can be peer-reviewed, most of this is subjective, heady stuff that’s all about what’s in your mind. Let’s start with the physical stuff you’ll encounter.
