Lifestyle Improvements

We have changed a lot over 10’s of thousands of years ago.

We were hunter gatherers.

Check out this vid below.


Do you want to improve your situation?

We may want to find ways to change our lifestyle.

What is stopping you?

Why not?

Perhaps, this is something to do?

Awareness is key.

Think outside the box.

What is the best way for you?

Be Human

Being is being, whether the differences appear or not.

Capturing the ‘good life‘ is a challenge for all beings.

Virtue is kingly in all our endeavors, a course correction is often needed to keep one’s life from running aground or being stuck.

Live beyond mere survival.

All forms of poverty may fall upon you.

Don’t give up!

Live this day, this minute, it may be your last.

Who am I?

Belief is key.

Find a healthy way to be.

Preparing For Sleep

My lights are turned down to a minimum.

All my devices are off.

I am in my sleeping clothing and my room is in sleep mode.

I seem to respond to sleep masks, quiet, white noise and a sleep body scan to produce deeper relaxation.

Eating Mindful supper tonight

It helps to go through the habit of a meal, before eating it in a mindful way.

It is useful to explore how each sense feels while eating the main course: steak with salt,pepper and a touch of saffron.

Again, with dessert, mango and raw almonds.

Simpler the better.

Shorter the better.

Perhaps, journal out what you ate how it felt, what you experienced during the meal.

Sometimes, it helps journal before or after doing dishes.

Bona Pettit!

I Got To Stop Over Watching TV or Streaming

AI And Me

This is what I am doing to cut down on my poor TV and streaming behavior.

This is part of a plan to start being more proactive and living a lifestyle that is best for me.

AI On Bing Vs. Me: Stoicism

AI: That’s a good question. I think it depends on how you define a lifestyle and something more. For some people, Stoicism is just a set of tools and techniques that they use to cope with life’s challenges and improve their well-being. For others, Stoicism is a way of life that shapes their values, beliefs, and actions. For some, Stoicism is even a spiritual path that connects them with the divine reason or logos that governs the universe.

What do you think? How do you see Stoicism in your life?

Me: It is about Cicero, On Living and Dying Well. I referred to a big piece of it in my last blog entry on Michael’s Space. “Grab Hold Of Yourself And Stop Being Afraid Of Your Freedom”. My blog will continue to have elements in future blog posts. But first, do no harm to myself and others. And remember this is about being and doing.

Grab Hold Of Yourself And Stop Being Afraid Of Your Freedom

Yes, living life is complex, all is contradictory,divisive and possibly illusory in many many ways.

But live the good life.

Use the ‘proper use of impressions’.

There are so many ups and downs!

Do no harm to yourself or others.

Seize the day!


There is a certain relationship to living each day that may seem to be a contradiction.

Life looks like pattern, problem and solutions and so much more.

Eat well, exercise, use positive stress to embrace all of yourself.

Engage people, work, play and find a work life balance.

Keep reassessing life to make your goals adapt to what works for you.

It is your job to do your best in your circumstances but that may not be fair to you or others.

Be grateful, give back, love one another.

There is always going to be a need to change, challenge and grow.

Rest, relax, meditate, be calm, be still, be silent.

And fail, make mistakes, regroup, recover, get stuck, misbehave, find out, discover, relearn, be a critical thinker, be compassionately understanding, do more with less, strive to live a better way.

If you need help, look for it and accept all you can stand, then take some more.

Mike Idea For A Vid

What about a drama/documentary to stir your imagination on challenging topics?

I have a sincere interest in history, physics and energy use and application in society today.

My pic is a little outside mainstream but will attract some people.
