Breakaway Guide To Personal Health

“Most people have no idea how good their body is designed to feel.”
– Kevin Trudeau

“Let your food be your medicine.”
– Hippocrates

In a previous piece we talked about how much time people waste on average, which assuming a 40 hour work week, with 8 hours of sleep a day, a person that watches TV an average of 5 hours of day uses nigh half of all their free time over the course of their lives watching the matrix machine.

Coupled with that, we’ve also see what can happen when someone begins to finetune their personal money/financial structure in order to be better prepared for the future. There is a lot to be had by being incisive and thinking critically about where the holes in your daily/weekly/monthly expenditures are.

With that said, it’s time to take a gander at the third component of the triumvirate, this being health.

The centerpiece for this post will be the notion brought about by the Book called The 8th Habit. This book mentions that keeping in mind that there are 168 hours in a week, essentially every time a person works out 1.5 hours a week exercising, that improves your happiness and the quality of the other 166.5 hours.

As mentioned in a previous post, the health of the populace within the American landscape is downright dismal. For all its technology and pill popping, America ranks dead last in health as of 2013 according to an article published by The Atlantic. Dead last.

That should be outright preposterous.

According to the report, the US had the highest rate of death by violence, death by car accident, teen pregnancy rate, woman dying due to complications, highest chance that a child will die before age of 5, second highest rate of death by coronary heart disease and lung disease. If that isn’t enough to want people to prompt change, perhaps we need to add more truck loads of fuel into that fire.

How about the fact that medical errors in the west account for upwards of 440,000 US deaths annually.

That is essentially about 1/6th of all the deaths that occur in the US every year.

Lest not forget, that obesity continues to increase unabated as over one-third – 38% of American adults – are obese as of 2014. This is a 3% increase over the previous year.

Hopefully those data points will help stir anyone that isn’t taking health into their own hands. There are a lot more deleterious health aspects of the medical system that we can discuss, but that will suffice for now.

You sure won’t hear the totality of all of that mentioned in the manipulated mainstream media. Obesity? Sure. But not the rest of the numbers. There should be a media firestorm. All you have instead are crickets.

The whole point of this blog, of each post, is to get everyone that’s interested in what’s really going on to take a deeper look into all of their personal compartments in order to find where they need to put more energy in order to live a better life. A healthier life.

Even if you have the time, or the money, without health, you’re a ship on the barren ocean without a rudder.

So what can one do?

There is quite a bit one can do actually. Much of this will seem simple, and a lot of it is. But some of is not.   Not many great obstacles were ever conquered without at least some notable effort. Health is no different.

For starters, having/drinking clean water that’s not laden in Fluoride is a great start. As discussed in a Breakaway Guide, Fluoride is extremely noxious component that is added to the water supply. Worse, a major study conducted by Harvard confirmed that fluoride lowers IQ. If you haven’t looked into it, look it up. In fact, its gotten so bad that many places eliminating fluoride from the water networks.

Fluoride is bad enough, but when you add a chemical cocktail of various components on top of that, things can get really dicey. Many communities have found out that their water is laden with toxic pharmaceutical drugs, heavy metals, lead, aluminum, haxavalent chromium and chlorine.

Drinking from the tap water is a big no-no. Also, don’t dare drink the water from restaurants because its not much better.   And they say the water in Mexico is bad. Time to roll your eyes people.

Another thing you can do is removing genetically modified foods from your diet. The fact that there is no labeling of GMOs should be looked at in an askance manner.  Besides contaminating organic crops, GMO crops have been fraught with controversy after controversy.

Given that the majority of Americans are not eating any real semblance of food, the only sensible option in a backwards world, is to eat organic, non-genetically modified, fresh and healthy locally sourced food. That has helped me greatly in regaining control of my health, and eliminating completely my dependence in Big Pharma.

Surely by now, most know and have heard of the benefits of exercise. No need to dabble here, as there are extensive studies on many different approaches that are possible. Only you can decide what suits you best. What works for one person might not be as efficient as it might be for another.   Just do your research.

In my case, weight training coupled with calisthenics and yoga have done wonders for my health & stress levels.

A recent notable change that aided me considerably was realizing how much prolonged sitting increases a variety of health risks. Even if you carry out daily exercises, just by sitting 8 hours a day at a job [or next to the TV], you greatly increase your risk of dying from every cause.

Instantly after that, standing more became a huge component of my life. Furthermore, using a stand-up desk, and walking more often whenever possible has helped. Anything that can get you moving is a plus.

Rebounding has helped me greatly as well as its helped keep things interesting while also helping my immune system quite considerably.

Ultimately, it all centers upon you, what’s best for you, what you choose to do, and how often you choose to do it. It’s really that simple.

When it comes to health, inaction is your nemesis. If you’re truly committed to your health, there will be no excuses, because there is always something that everyone of any age can do.   If you don’t take care of your health, nobody will.

The choice is y/ours

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered:

“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

What Is The Best Use Of Your Time

By: Zy Marquiez
November 17, 2015

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
—Martha Graham

Recently, someone who has been in my life by way of friendship shared a post on social media. A simple post, really. Or was it?

Let us backtrack one second.

Just earlier today, my mind was traveling through the endless escape that was insomnia, and lo and behold, idea after idea kept sprouting like a field of seeds which was bathed in eternal rain and sunshine.

Gears were turning, levers were pulled, ideas created, filtered, musings edited, so on and so forth. My purpose at this point seemed like an afterthought.  Since sleeplessness had reared its ugly head, this itself gave me a great opportunity; it occurred to me, why not use it?

Thus, after a while of catching up with news online, my said friend had shared a picture that stated one of the very questions that myself just happened to be ruminating on. Quite a coincidence.

It’s a rather simple, yet direct question: What is the best use of your time?

Really, what is it? Is it currently doing what you are doing? Personally, even being cognizant of how important efficient time-management is to me, it can still be daunting to try and be 100% efficient, 100% of the time. Seems rather mechanical doesn’t it? In my personal case, it’s just important that time is not misused, and would rather learn something interesting, learn something important. Better yet, time used in fashion to help myself, and/or help others. Now that is a large driver in my life.

Let us tackle the issue of time use with a simple notion.

Many folks have a penchant for watching TV. A lot of TV. For the myriad reasons that it takes place, the bottom line is that the average person watches 5 hours of TV per day. That amounts to 1,825 hours per year. That is 18250 hours per decade, and 91,250 hours per 50 years. That’s a lot of time! Over the course of 50 years, the totality of the time spent watching TV daily amounts to 3802 consecutive 24-hour days, over that span.  Or “just” 5 hours a day, for 50 years.

Not sure about how others see it, but for me at least, that’s an overwhelming amount of time that could be rather well spent elsewhere.

This is just a nuts and bolts cursory overview of time management in relation to efficiency. Furthermore, that does not take into account the amount of time people spend watching videos/tv online.

For the sake of simplicity, let us assume most of us happen to get 8 hours a day sleeping [yeah, its probably not that much, but let’s stick with it for a moment]. If one were to subtract an 8-hour sleep cycle from the total of 24 hours in a day, then you have 16 available hours to do as you please. Without even getting into whether one works or not, 5 out of those 16 available hours, or nigh 1/3 of all of the average person’s free time is being used by the average person to watch TV.

Fast forward far into the future. Let us crank the levers of imagination here for a second.

At the back end of one’s entire life, one can imagine that sooner or later in a moment of introspection a person might ponder about all those great times. You know, back in the day – a phrase that even many younglings use now days as if they’ve been around for many decades, and such. If one can imagine one of the people that spent an enormous amount of time watching TV, would that person be happy with themselves if they spent nigh 1/3 of all of the free time they had while they were alive watching television?

Let us be more precise. Where does adding 40 hours of work a week put us?

In an entire 168 hour work-week where the average person spends, 56 hours a week sleeping, and 40 hours a week working, that leaves one with 72 hours free. If one were to spend 35 hours a week viewing television, then that would leave 37 hours of free time. That’s nearly half of all of one’s available time spent watching television. That seems ludicrous, does it not?

Many people will propound the idea that they are tired, want to decompress, have had a ‘long day’, so on and so forth. One hears it quite often. That is completely understandable, to a point. But, don’t you think a person rather spend that free time with their loved ones? By the way, if watching TV with your loved ones is the APEX of quality time, then…you might want to rethink the meaning of the word quantity quality.

Why pose such a question? Because, in a world where poverty, all disease, war, et al. are not only endemic, but increasing, does it not stand to reason that a person should do all they can to protect themselves mentally/physically/psychologically/spiritually? Seems reasonable. But are people really putting that much – if any – time to not become a statistic? That however does not seem like a reasonable assumption, seeing as the numbers of folks facing a myriad of issues are increasing year in and year out unceasing.

If people were really doing everything they could to break free of the matrix of control that harvests them, would poverty, disease, war, etc. be increasing? Definitely not.

Some will instantly throw their hands in the air and say, but the republicans/democrats this, or the corporations that, or secret societies “control everything!” While there is endemic corruption in the modern landscape, do those groups/institutions really ‘control everything’?

Do they really? We just made a reasonable case that nearly half of all the free time the average person has in their entire lifetime is carried out choosing to watch TV. Don’t the very groups that people are quick to blame benefit from the inaction of watching TV, that when added up of a combined populace, numbers in the millions of hours of…watching TV? How many hours of extra labor [if one wanted too], or extra self-education, or extra exercise could be carried out by the individual if he/she were to apply a microscopic amount of all that extra TV time, into striving to be the very best of themselves? Think folks would get the picture?

The interesting aspect is that this whole mental exercise also does not take into account how much money goes directly into funding things that people claim they oppose, but which they financially support day in and day out. How many tens of millions of dollars are being spent inefficiently, rather than perhaps investing in the best thing one could, themselves? That number has to be beyond astronomical.

How could an individual ever breakaway their consciousness from this system/matrix, if so much time is spent doing such things?

Now that the levers of imagination have been shifted accordingly, what do you think people will decide? Keep in mind, one need not use all of the time that was use watching TV, doing something else. Just one hour daily, used in an ultra-efficient manner that directly benefits your mind/body/soul would be worth pursuing.

What kind of benefits would accrue if those hours add into the dozens or even hundreds per year? What about thousands of hours over a lifetime? That would create quite a powerful and capable individual – a boundless universe of conscious creation.

How much could one change in their life? What about their community? What about the world? How much could one create spending just a minute amount of time pushing yourself farther than you ever thought possible?

Why don’t we find out? The door is wide open. It’s only a choice.

A blank canvas awaits – a large marble uncut stone slab – for wondrous creation. Await those who want more. It awaits those who are not satisfied with their current path.
