A Slow Pleasurable Life

Can the goal of good health and a good life overlap?

Is a gradual building of pleasure and happiness possible?

Years of seeing health as an end in itself, has led to years of seeing the good life as doing no harm.

A commitment to a life project of putting others first  and myself a close second.

Society needs the individual to be the revolution.

People need to change society as individuals through their outcomes:  inventing styles or fashion, contributions of work and the many ways we care for each other in compassionate ways.

The journey may produce a good life.

If I die today, I have no regrets…

Although it is good to have technology and the transfer of knowledge is also usually a good thing, we still need to be a critical thinker, even a skeptic about the use and application of the truth.

The work/play balance is apt to be towards work-at least eight hours a day, 5 days a week, most months of the year, but for holidays, sick days and important appointments like the doctor.

Most of the time fatigue will plague most forms of play.

Sometimes it is best to find a place to begin and formulate a plan to build a better habit.

Awareness is key, ask yourself if the above title applies to you and weather you are willing to change.

A lot of needless pain can build over a lifetime, this is another reason to use a work/play balance to readjust mistakes or problems in the day to day routine.

I like playing and I am curious. I am apt to follow my curiosity and suggest you do the same.

I am interested in blogging and poetry, philosophy, photography, science, current events, news, cooking, living, and much, much more. It has kept me playing since the early two thousands on this blog alone!

I sincerely wish everyone a merry adventure, and best regards concerning their work/play balance.

Advocating Health

Aversion is painful.

No pain, no gain is trying to express the core of the issue.

A healthy mistake is one that allows suffering without doing the harm to the self.

Pain can led to many bad habits or to many good habits.

Awareness will point out the meaning of the pain.

Exercise like meditation can produce good outcomes:  simplicity, compassion and patience.

Managing life requires many forms of exercise:  journaling, meditation, visualization, reading, writing, research, walking, talking, thinking, feeling and lots of work, play.

Going with this flow is real happiness.

Preaching non-violence led to inner peace which is another good outcome.

In this sense, pain and suffering can be a kind of aversion, when practicing good habits will produce better outcomes.
