A Life of Purpose in Self-Actualization Journals Posted 1 hour ago 3-hour lecture on cross-sectional and ecological studies this morning. The content is brilliant but I just can't stop losing my focus all the time because of how monotonous his voice is. Guess the nature of the material is that it has to be boring, dry and academic. While it takes a huge amount of willpower and energy to review all the lectures, make notes and practice I can see the immense value this stuff has if I can stick to his 3-level course. The guy has an incredibly high level of integrity, he really cares in what he does and the price he asks for it is in my opinion much lower than what it should be. Yet still, very few people even in our industry seem to be interested in this level of depth and detail. 15-second tic tock nutrition videos seem to sell better. But guess that's where the market is heading. I seemed to have rediscovered a new passion and enthusiasm in my workouts lately. For many months, I kinda dragged myself through these sessions, often not particularly enjoying them but lately, since finding the new calisthenic place and having my bike fixed I've been really enjoying both these bodyweight workouts and long bike rides. Having purchased annual membership on Strava was also super helpful, the app is so brilliant. It seems all that was needed was a little bit of variety. I can definitely feel my body responding better to these calisthenic sessions than what I was doing for the past year. It's only been 2 months but my pullups have improved significantly I'd say. I'm also really enjoying not having to pay for gyms anymore, realised I can get equally challenging workouts with the bars, TRX and 3 rubber bands I got from the Facebook market for 10 pounds. The only thing that sucks is the freaking Welsh weather lately that makes both difficult quite often. Visit to Snowdonia is now just 1 week off. Can't wait, been wanting to visit this area for years. With climbing Snowdon, the UK's second highest mountain off our list, it'll just be Ben Nevis in Scotland till I can cross 3-peak challenge off my list.
