Topic: Noble Realmer's health routines
I've recently started taking nutritional supplements and exercising as it is hard enough to keep healthy in today's environment without awareness and discipline. The benefits of spending an hour of your day loving your body are literally unexplainable. I notice that many of us wanderers have our minds and spirit in order but we neglect the BODY! Exercise and proper nutrition will help your body help you - chronic anger and depression are two symptoms that quickly fade away. I was going to reply the helpful folks in the iodine thread but it seemed off-topic so here's my current health manifestation routine.
(thanks NRers for the last few)
7 days a week Tibetan Five Rites
4 days a week 1 minute of strenuous exercise with 5 minute meditation period afterwards, 3 cycles (from ex-Olympian Physician Irving Dardik's Wave exercise theory - give the body's recovery faculties exercise as well)
3 days a week 30-45 minute run (aerobic exercise)
2 days a week exercise muscle group 1
2 days a week exercise muscle group 2 (for muscle exercise I do one day of strenuous exercise for groups 1 and 2 followed by 2 days rest, then 1 day of light exercise for both followed by 1 day rest - protein shakes after work out)
I usually do a cycle of a few nutrients at a time and then lay off for awhile so the body does not become dependent on the supplements and has time to alter its normal mode of operation. This ends up costing less per month and "feels" right to me. Just a wild goose guess though.
What are some of your routines? I would love to hear what everyone else does as it works much better for me to assimilate a bunch of routines rather than sticking hardcore to one "magic pill"
