The Internet is a Double Edged Sword - I Will Be Showing How To Limit Your Wasteful Time And Wield It Productively

I have an inquiring mind. That can be awfully bad when it comes to my time on the internet. In order to quench the insatiable thirst for how things work, I can tend to be on the internet for a good long amount of time.

I was on it particularly hard last night, and last night, I think I was warned about it through my sleep.

I had a pretty vivid dream last. Woke me in a cold sweat. I was basically this small speck struggling to swim in an endless sea. This sea was very stormy, very restless, and I was struggling to keep my head above it. Things on this sea were pummeling me; I was listening to bits of songs from online commercials, snippets of news I recently read, and lots of other sound effects, even the old "you've got mail" sound bite. Finally, through the noise of the storm I can barely make out my voice through all the chaos and the noise.

"Help, you're losing me!"

That's when I woke up with a start.

I already know that the internet is double edged sword, its usefulness that can be eclipsed by other distracting things, like games and social media, that one can waste time in.

And I was losing myself in it. My constant search for more info about things can make it truly an addiction. And I was losing my inner voice, my soul, because of it.

I was on it a lot yesterday, and it wasn't productive. The dream told me that.

I needed to re-establish limits online again, just like I did so many times before. That is how I kept from losing myself from drowning in this chaotic sea of information.

If you find yourself online most of the time, you might want to take some notes from me in the future, as I set myself parameters to limit my internet use and keep it only for productive uses. My future videos will reflect this since mental health is part of our overall health that I promote.

Collective Health over Personal Responsibility? I Don't Think So

With the new #CDC "unmasking" guidance in effect for "vaccinated" people, there seems to be a slew of those fearful of taking off their masks lashing out about how those "antivax" people will exploit the rules.

I came across this "gem" about health and why it should be a collective effort instead of a personal responsibility.

Bzzt, Wrong!

Here's a snippet of The Verge article:

"With those limitations, pushing the burden of staying safe onto individuals makes things hard on everyone. In response to the CDC announcement, for example, stores like Walmart and Costco are no longer requiring customers to wear masks. Most say unvaccinated people still need to wear masks, but they’re not going to ask for evidence that someone is vaccinated before they go into the stores.

Someone who isn’t vaccinated could easily decide to not wear a mask in Walmart. In an indoor space like a crowded store, they’d be more at risk of contracting COVID-19, especially in an area where the virus is still circulating. That person is taking their health into their own hands — but they’re also putting the people around them at risk."

Okay, so let's go "collective." Let's ban fast food restaurants that put people's lives at risk to begin with. Heck, 8 out of 10 people who are hospitalized with Covid are overweight and obese, right? And what about all those people flocking to Krispy Kreme doughnuts after getting the jab? Krispy Kreme should be banned also.

How about we also make it mandatory for people to exercise 30 minutes each day? We have the wearable tech to supply the data now, right? That should drive my business through the roof and make me a millionaire.

These should eliminate that high risk group from dying from the virus.

Sounds draconian, right? How about we give personal responsibility a try again? Allow people good and bad choices again, but it is *on them* to face the consequences of those decisions.

In other words, if you feel you're at risk of dying from the virus, it's up to you to reverse your health through diet and exercise, not demand others do something against their will (#vaccines) to make you feel safe.

Although I would like a captive market and a chance of being a millionaire, I'd rather choose being in a free country instead. I'm sure you would also.

For the Greater Good, we should NOT Risk Healthy People with a Covid Needle!

I often hear people ask me, when I tell them I'm not accepting a #covid19 GMO frankenshot #vaccine, that I should do it for those around me.

No. The only way I can help those around me is to be healthy, period.

We need to keep healthy people healthy to keep society running, "for the greater good." That means NOT risking them with a Covid vaccine.

I've already seen what damage the lockdowns did to a lot of people, including me. The drop in business has seriously hindered my ability to help with my elderly parents. Healthy people productive & are the backbone of society; they're needed to keep everything running. They are assets, not liabilities, and should be treated as such.

The virus is 0.02% fatal to those in my age group. With healthy people, that figure drops even more. The #vaccines aren't necessary. Why put them into unnecessary risk with this shot?

On a personal note, my mother got Covid through a friend. I was around to take care of her for the two days she was sidelined. She would have found it a lot more difficult otherwise.

Leave healthy people alone!

Male Testosterone Plummeting and Societal Implications


Very interesting video by Vincent James of the Red Elephants. We have witnessed a huge drop in testosterone in the point where half of all men in 2045 will have their sperm count drop to zero.

As you can see, this is clearly impacting young men, how they carry themselves, what clothes they wear, and, of course, how they vote. A lot of us can safely say that we are declining as a society because of this.

As Vincent James says, strong MASCULINE men are the backbone of society. They are the ones toiling in heavy lifting jobs to keep the infrastructure functioning, they're the fathers that current people don't have, the glue holding families together.

And guess what? #Diet and #exercise will help testosterone levels back to normal.

The same diet and exercise that can ward off viruses, that can increase longevity (also declining), and increase quality of life!

And this is my job, developing strong people, especially men. If society breaks down, it's going to take a strong man to survive. It's going to take strong men to rebuild.

I've been talking to people during my free time a lot. People are confused, and it's such an important service that it stays free. Growing a network of strong men right now *is* my payment; we might need each other in the future.

About That Jab: I'm Not Responsible For Your Health. That Was Always YOUR Responsibility

 So, I'm supposed to take the #vaccine if I care about other people.

A recent Forbes article says that 8 in 10 people hospitalized with the #Covid19 #virus is overweight or obese.

They put themselves in that group because of POOR LIFE CHOICES. Apparently, our calls of practicing good diet and #exercise were lost on these people.

And now that their #health is failing, they demand us healthy people take an untested, experimental jab with who-knows-what in it so that they feel safe.

Sorry. For YEARS we Personal Trainers have warned you of the consequences of eating too much fast food, not exercising at all, allowing yourself to tip the scales at 300+ pounds.

So no, your health is not our responsibility. It was always yours.

You can still take personal responsibility and take care of your health. It's never too late.

To Those In The Northeast - Beautiful Day To Workout, Get Out There!!!

It's a beautiful day in the Northeast!

If you don't go outside today and run, cycle, walk, hike, or even just take a bit of a siesta outside, it would be a sin to miss a day like this.

I got my 5 mile run in this morning. Shorts and short sleeve shirt in NY! 

As you can see, there is a wind advisory today. That is because the wind will be associated with a cold front moving through the area. This will be the last warm day for this stretch. Tomorrow will be more seasonable temps in the 30s.

This is a reminder that you need to make your health a priority in your daily routines so that you steer clear of the high risk group for any virus that comes along. And when indulging in active activity on a beautiful day like this, it can be fun also.

Your health is the backbone of your life. If you are not healthy, you cannot perform your job well, you cannot be fully participating with your family and your kids, you'll have less capacity to get everything done each day.

Get out there people!!!

P.S. To all those in Denver, I feel for you. Big storm with two feet of snow bearing down on you. Well, at least some of you will be getting a workout in shoving your sidewalks and your cars! 😛

Don't Demand Other Healthy People Take The V.A.X. Instead, Be Responsible And Look To Improve Your Own Health

I've repeatedly have shown CDC numbers that it is health, not age, that is the primary cause of deaths by Covid.

People, if you are in questionable health and are truly concerned about the 
#Covid19 virus, do not demand healthy people take a #vaccine to make you safe.

Instead, look to your own health and see what you can do to improve it.

A majority of those of you in this group CAN reverse their failing health. For those in their 70s who cannot move much, there are workouts they can do while in a chair. They are very gentle workouts and can help you take small baby steps on the road to better fitness. It would significantly reduce your chances of dying from #Covid .

For those my age, in their 50s, it's disconcerting to see them starting on regular medications because of their poor life choices in #health and #diet. If you fall into this group and are taking regular medications, you have more leeway than the older group in reversing your health. All it takes is 10-20 minutes per day of weights, treadmills, or walking outside to make a difference.

Of course, please talk to your doctor about getting a screening before taking part in exercise.

This is a personal responsibility issue, and you need to take ownership of your health. This #pandemic should come as a shot across the bow that your health should be the highest priority in your daily routine.
