Oh my. Where do I begin? Bodybuilding did not happen by chance. However, my journey to bodybuilding is probably more intentional than I thought. I tried a million and one type of trainings regime such as CrossFit, yoga, sprints, long distance running, powerlifting, HIIT the list goes on and they were all great fun and during that period of my life it was the best type of training for me. However, I did not see real changes until I found bodybuilding, meal prepping and understanding macros and micros and the biggest taboo, counting calories.

You might not be in a place in life right now where talking about having tiny humans is a priority. Maybe it’s just taking on a new role at work and leaving your old life behind? Are you ready? Truth is we are never ready for anything for real. When I did my first bikini competition, was I truly deeply ready? No. I was not. But I did it anyway and learn with every mistake I made and fall with every step I took. Did I die? No. Was there some embarrassing moments? Sure. But I learnt, I survived and I thrived.

The problem with our society these days isn’t their age, the problem is what these individuals should be doing at their age but don’t because they are too caught up behind the desk.
The volatility in markets, especially the extreme volatility of Crypto markets creates significant emotional and physical stress as well as creating situations where an individual will spend extended periods sitting in that high stress environment.
The high stress environment makes traders prone to bad habits like smoking, drinking and substance abuse, which exacerbate the damaging effects on health.
And if we can try a little everyday to create healthier habits step by step, little by little. Non-drastic, nothing unnecessary, you will see the difference in yourself even if its just for 3 weeks.
The sedentary nature of the life can lead to obesity and diabetes which may not be directly related to trading but these are all facts that traders tend to do such as sitting for long hours, not eating regularly, not sleeping regularly and substance abuse which all increase your chances of coronary heart diseases.

I cherish friendships so much it took everything out of me.. And there’s nothing wrong with that. But in any kind of friendship or relationship, you have the right to put your emotion first before others. You’re allowed to feel and express your emotions or pain. You have the right to your experience – even if it’s different from that of other people. You have the right to say no; saying no doesn’t make you selfish.
