The CDP // Ep1: Let's Talk 'Action'

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In this introductory ep we talk about the art of taking action and the importance of sticking to your plans.

One and we're like all right, baby. Hello everyone, welcome to the clever dummies podcast. I'm your host, Mr Walkie, and would joined by my best man and by best made, my best mate, Mr Nak gun today, but good, but the good. How are you going? Because they are doing very much, doing very well. Having a few hiccups, but we'll leave that off camera. That's okay. We're time role and next. So yeah, as I just said, the clever dummies podcast, this is episode that are Numero, you know, number one, something we've been discussing and talking about and planning for a while and I think now it's just go time. It's time to put those those words into action and let's started out. So, yeah, we've got it. I think we're going to have a lot of fun. We do have a lot of fun together just talking absolute shit, talking some good stuff too, but yeah, I think I think something just podcasting the way to go. Every every man and his dog has a podcast. So pretty well, yeah, we have to get into it up. I see you left out. No, it's good. We've been talking about talking about it for a while, you know, roughly three months or so. We've actually done few, you know, podcasts as well, just to see see how they went. I think the first one was, you know, a little bit dead in the second one was good, better, and then I think this is this is the money ever good feeling about this pod, guys, about from the hiccups, I still have a good feeling. But yeah, so, I so we're rolling. That's it. Yeah, so this is this is good, good board guys. I mean we're going to talk about our lives, we're going to talk about the journey, the journey be Joe. Yeah, they journey or journey. And, like you were saying, you know, everyone is a podcast. Is the thing is, it could just will do it for six months and, you know, we'll see how we go. If you know, if we don't do anything more than that, you know that's six month birth of documentation of life. For people who don't know, it's very well. We used to have a radio show back when we were seventeen there the old days, every rather there was after high school. So we're like eighty nine, twenty eight, twenty. So you serve a podcast and I've gone through some episodes on soundclass. Some of our episodes are available there and it's just good to see where our head was that it's just good to see where our, you know, thoughts took, how our thought process was, and I do think, you know, documentation. I've come to believe that documentation is probably super important. You know, it's as important as living life. You have to document because, you know, you sit down, you know how how much fun is it to just sit down and look through some old photos or videos, you know, you like those are the days or you know those, whether they see those, are they they provide clarification and they what room. Maturity is is kind of like continually evolving as a kid. Well, even at even the Bible talks about being faith, like in certain areas, like, sorry, being told, like in certain areas where you have to be blind, certain, you know, experiences in life up ways, you're just going to get beat down and you're going it. You're going to feel really negative about things that you want to be optimistic upbeat like you were as a kid, where everything that was happening happens at the next stage. You couldn't look too far ahead. But obviously, as you mature, you begin to realize the things that you don't want to and you should be sure you begin to realize the things you don't want to focus on and you do want to focus on and they're just looking listening for five minutes. Some of those things we're talking about, it's just like yeah, we'll just be our head was that. I mean some of the things we talked about, which is stupid. It's just yeah, I always want to. I'm like, who, let us on? Are Let us? Why will we live? I don't know. Some of the things we're talking about. This is no one was listening. That's why, at the same time, it's a good thing to look back at and go, well, I've gone. You know, I've gone a lot and you know, I think talking about I've grown. This is probably so. This is the theme of the PODCASTS, that podcast, the clever dum report us, is the process of growth or in you know, the process of the journey. Yeah, so, so that's the jets of the PODCAST, I suppose. So, you know, that's that's where we'll take it from and see how we go. As we said, you know, no pressure and, like you were saying before, you know something about action. Did you want to talk about that again? Yeah, yeah, yes, a hundred percent. And like the thing that we all get caught up in is something called like prices by analysis, and so you want to do something so perfectly. You don't want to experience failure. So you overprepare and you overthink and you try to make it to be one thing when planning is good, and planning is kind of what separates, you know, successful people from unsuccessful people, or success and failure. But you don't want to be scared of that. Failure. Fatally, is ever due to bad decision or maybe something that you shouldn't really have been doing anyway, but it's the prob like, it's the process of getting to that failure that's the most important part in the actual result. As long as your hearts in a good place and as long as you're trying to do it for the right reason, it's that you're going to you're going to be continuing to be leveling up. And you know, when we're eighteen, seven years old, talking nonsense, lifting weights, bloody not warming up going into and I had a fifty...

...kilodd list. My body suffering for that big time. I've been working my shoulder from the last for months and I still haven't got it right. But yeah, it's just it was our attitude to life it was like that big child, like you know, and that was where it sort of came. They hurt us, but it's saying that we had a lot of fun, for sure. That's it. That's another I mean a no bottlefit. I will change. It's just in that not back at it. I mean talking about action. The brothers is by analysisn't know, I have a two. I really do believe that people this is a thing. This is some I think, what's his name? The Guy who talks about the guy who yells all the time at people, Tony, Tony, do Tony robins right. So any robin say the great is the great way. He don't about this idea of motion. Worse says action. So a lot of people go into this motion where they're planning in the planning. You know, really do think, and I could feel like I'm going to be the harsh one here, you know, I really do think people are just avoiding taking action, you know, because they just it's not that they are afraid, some more so, of failure. It's there more just avoiding doing the action. You know. Yeah, I have friends who tell me that they're going to go to the gym and, you know, they go to online, they buy all these clothes, going to the gym and they buy supplements and you know, and you know. Then they know, they sign up for membership and do all these things whenever go. Yeah, they know, May, two thousand and twenty, baby, it's nothing, right, not, yeah, nothing, nothing, nothing happened. It was all emotion, as in, you know, they were planning and and I think the truth of the matter is I think people who often succeed are more so people of action and they just make adjustments. You know. They yeah, they don't. They don't come up with these absolute plans of how to how everything will happen. They just do it and, you know, make adjustments as they go, like oh well, fuck, that didn't work, so I'm gonna try this, you know. So any it's interesting in a very VENA check talks about this idea, but idea of making a decision. You know, people make a decisions and you know what is what's how do you differ from a wrong decision and a right decision? And how do you know what time you spend was time they'll spend and what was time? Batsman, you don't. You just make the decision. Yeah, you're probably spend more time thinking about the fact. If this is the right decision, then just make the distinction. Then, you think, because at the moment that's the right decision. With it's, you know, yeah, dead letting the time if yeah, under the warm up. Six Games are pretty work. Yeah. Yeah, well, now I'drenal glance, erect. Let's start. That's that's right. It was the right decision at that done. I mean now you know it was a bad decision. It wouldn't. Yeah, but you wouldn't be the person you are today if it wasn't for perhaps that decision. Yeah, and ultimately, the things that you grit the most, the definitely the things you don't do. It's just like a it's just like in any sport, any field. You've got just got to keep going out to bat. You've got to just keep getting out there, getting the practice under way. That does start to sort of eliminate things naturally, because you know, I can't. I didn't do that. I did this last time. It didn't work. I'm going to change it up. But every time you do do it, it gets a little bit more comfortable, you get a little bit more confident and and really the like. We all have our own fears. It could be the fear that you know you're lazy. So you're not. You don't want to engage it because you know after six months or less than that, like two weeks in, that's where it starts to get lazy. Like for the gym, for example, like the first couple of weeks you're excited, you want to get in there and then it starts, it gets difficult and you go, okay, well, I'm not as motivated as when I first started. It's getting hard now I'm going to stop. That's the same with a podcast, that's the same with a business plan. So you've got a yeah one. You've got to keep going, you've got to keep doing it, keep getting stronger at it, but you've got to just keep remembering that the reason why you're doing it. You're doing it because you want to make yourself better. You want to be in a at a place and the good days. There are a lot more good days and bad days, but I think we're just human beings. It's like a natural preservation. Like you remember the bad things because we're white to protect ourselves and where why too, to stay away from things that are going to cause us harm. So we tend to focus and that sort of thing. But ultimately, if you're trying to get better a little bit by a little bit, the the fail is become less of failies and it's just learning. It's either, what's this the old attagy? If A, we're know, you learn, you know, and if you can hold on to that thought process, I feel like that's really helped me over the last year. Of that sort of main concept. That's it, isn't it? I mean, and I also toyed this idea of and I told you about this and I said if you were to think life, and this is when people are afraid of something, and people are often you know, you'd like you said, you remember the bad times, but you know people will relate. The problem is people remember the bad times or people always think that I'm they're in is probably the worst time they're in. Yeah, always think people. So think the what the basic of this concept is? People driving, people live in the past, you know, remember all the bad...

...things that happen, remember all the good things that happen, but the Norman is really thinking about what's happening now. That's the real problem and it's really really interesting that you talked about the why, because I think why is the answer, like do everything. Why, it is. Yeah, why, you know. I think it doesn't matter what job you're in or what you're doing. If you have a why, you know you're doing it. You every step. This is this, this book I recently read, The alchemist. It's a brilliant, brilliant book, recommended by so many people, and the book talks about when you're on your personal when you're on the mission to achieve your personal legend, the universe conspires, you know, and Universe conspires to help you achieve your personal legend. Talks about you know, and and it talks about all is written by the one hand. You know. So it talks about God, as in talking of us. So God has written all the part and to the point where God, in that sense, or the universe, if you will, whatever it is, right, will help you achieve that goal because you know, because it's written by one hand or origin, by God. So and if you're on the leged to express you know. So that's the whole thing. So, you know, you got to know your why, what your personal legend is, according to the which is brilliant. Now another thing. People to talking about living in the past. People tend to relate happiness and, you know, their feeling of joy to certain times in life and say, yeah, I recreated I was talking about this other day. You know, there's people who go to things like, you know, Oh, well, back when I was in school, I was popular and I was famous. What was that doing then? All, yeah, that's right. You know, I had an I had long hair, straight hair, some going straight my hair or cut my hair also, something like that. You know, this is example. The problem is people are people tend to apply if you, okay, if you were to think life as a game, right, so let's say you know you started a game. You know you struggle to bit, you've got to level six and all of a sudden you're beating all the bosses. You know. You know you're going through, you rouping through the think about marvel the game. You know you get a catch. All of a sudden you've could you can. So, yeah, yeah, you'd get the solid upgrading. Your beating everyone, and then you reach level twenty. Now all your arms are useless and now you have to do all the side battles to upgrade you items. But you know, most people, what most people do end up doing is they'd go, Oh, actually, the level six armor, armor help me. Then I was going to put that off. Yeah, yeah, and that's not going to help, you know, just because you're applying you know, if you if you're applying a different set of solution to a brand new problem, which is, you know, new level of the problem. Yeah, and I think the downside to what I'm kind of experiencing now, and it's because there's so many upsides to you feel like you're never quite satisfied, like you feel like you're doing everything you can to be better and do better things. And we're still very young the process, twenty three, twenty four years old. So I obviously have an understanding that if you are satisfied at twenty three, twenty four, then you're probably life over. So but like the the act of not being satisfied, still being grateful and still being thankful, like you can't just always be an that constant state of battle because you just won't be able to rest and eventually you burn yourself out. But when you have that idea in the back of your head or you aren't totally satisfied, even if things are really good, that's what continuously forces you to keep growing, keep improving, keep doing the things well and keep that sort of baseline, but just slowly leveling up in the things that maybe you started three months ago. Like for me it's been my diet, like I've really started probably two or three months ago, actually dining properly. Before that I was just grow sides and calories in the fast for twenty days and not too much. But like two months ago, the things that I'm doing, weighing my food, like having an idea of how many carbohydrates I'm eating and how much protein, in fact those sort of things. A couple of months ago was complete. I had. There was I would I wasn't even listening, I couldn't even understand it, and now it's literally embedded itself into my you know, into my way of life, like I can't imagine my life without it. And there's so many things that could you can relate that to. It might be relationship, it might be a financial state as well. Maybe you're used to having a lot of money that all of a sudden you've got to take a pay cut. You know how I'm going to say light. But eventually you keep just going and keep going through and you like you. That's you know, you can detach yourself from the two of the things that might help a lot of people and that sort of thing that ultimately you've got to find things that provide you Julie and happiness, but in the one sense, a continually forcing you to keep finding that joy and happiness. You know, if you're just searching for that one high, then you're just going to stick to that one high, but if you're trying to keep continuous, they're evolving and it's a tough thing to like. We go through a lot of hardships and a lot of a lot of battles. So there's days that you don't feel like that you're leveling up. Sometimes there's days that you're just going through...

...this, days where you're just hanging in, and sometimes the days that you think I'll fuck I might be going back down the St the pretty slope. But as long as in the back of your head like there's a new day coming, as long as you can remember that, we're just it's a slow game. We can keep getting better and better. You're always going to and that sort of thing bleeds off on other people to and I think in the act of doing difficult things, things become easier, but also you get a real sense of satisfaction out of that. So you might think, well, I'm really depressed or I'm not doing well, I don't feel like expending energy anywhere else because I'm really upset, like I feel like I've got nothing to give. But the more energy you put out kind of the more you get back, and then you start to realize the things that maybe were hard no longer a hard anymore than you can keep going, keep leveling up, keep leveling up, and that's something that I've come to over like listening to a lot of really smart people, a lot of smart people overcome adversity, and something that I've just felt filter into my life and it's something that just, it just it's the right it so like there isn't like you can't like you that point like that. So many successful people have that way of thinking and so, and not that I'm successful in any way, but I mean, like that's just the ultimately, that's the one key. If you hang on to that sort of thing, treat people well, you know, you'll suddenly realize that you can cut a lot of things out of your life, things that you felt like you couldn't deal with, you either get rid of him or you have to deal with them, and any deal with them. It's like is it in your controllers at outstudy or control? And he stay in that line and all of a sudden you've got energy to do things, you've got edgy to give back to yourself, you can give to other people. I think life's really about that. Like you can. It's great to focus on yourself and have your own personal goals, but when those goals can influence and in fact other people, I think that's where real happiness is. Well, that's a that's it. Someone a few days ago post one of my facebook what is the definition of success? Are you still use faith? Fuck, yeah, and you know that people are posting. You know, you define your own success. You know. Yeah, someone posted some really Shitty, stupid things. Ay, all success is buying a brand new BM doubles, like you know. You know, I do honestly think. I think success is when you're truly happy with the person you are, a person you are are, and you know that you're working towards something greater and you're able to you able to give back. I think, yes, definition of success. Yeah, and I don't think many people would be are able to argue with that, because I think that is true success, because you can't say you know, and I do think happiness is is had coming over adversity is probably happiness. So the process is the happiness and growth is happiness year, whether you know it's really anything like I think growth is the process and that's happiness because you know, yeah, it's evolution, it's getting better day by day, it's moving in the right direction, it's not feeling like your staff gets it's not waking up every day and looking in the mirror not liking who you are. It's all those things that when you are upset and when you are in the bad place, those things start to creep up and those things really take over their life. Just by the act of constantly trying to evolve and get better and do that little things and eliminate things, you have your taken those boxes as well. Yeah, that's that's what makes you happy, because your progress, you're progressing and you could progress being progressed now, and I mean I want to use an example here. Think about back in the des when we used to be kids and we would be very excited about our birthdays right, will be will be like yeah, the first day, you know, be very excited about the birthday and you know the birthday cutting the cake would last from ut thirty second and you I be pissport at that's you know, you're like yeah, you know, why would? I was just so excited about the you know, these achieving the goal. It's never about the goal. That's a problem. I think so many people think. Oh, so many people are gold driven. It's never about the goal, it is about the process. You're excited into the days and it's the events leading up to the cutting the cake. Getting the key is not exciting, you know. Yeah, it's just the excitement. What you tell yourself is it? Yeah, having the cake there is what keeps you going. Like happy, that goal is what keeps you going. But yeah, you're the actual goal is never the the real happiness. Of course, what you have to get on the process of getting to the Goh, that's it. That's it. Yeah, and you know sometimes they get the cakes not even good for you. So, you know, the goals place like Shit, too much sugar. You know, you may achieve you may achieve your goal. You know you may get to your goal and what then, like, you know, you might feel sh like, well, you know, well, fuck, that's what. That's what I think. The problem with our generation particularly is they know the problem. I's wouldn't stay. But I think we're very we're not patient. We yeah, we too had just want to be rich. Now it's want, need to achieve that. I want to my dame body. Now it doesn't happen. You have to if you want the dream body, you have to like fitness. It's not that you know. You know some. So I've got friends who are still, you know, be like saying, you know, I'm going to achieve absacy more than what are you going to compete are? You are model like you know, it doesn't make you have to love the process. You know you had. This is...

...the lifestyle. You have to be walking into a lifestyle and love the process, because the gold means nothing, because you achieve, let's just say you achieved the four percent, five percent body, percent breath, and that's it. You reach your goal and now you know you it's like you know your hair. Where you gonna go from here, because you know you were chief. They only got to go down again again. If your goal is the progress, if you're living in the progress, then there's no you know, the sky is isn't the limit, you know, and most of the time when those sort of things are your goalie and up not make it attend that anyway. And when, like for me, my like my initial kind of when I really wanted to lose weight and I took it seriously in my own head, it was to get my apps back. But before I even had my aps back, I realized I don't even like that's not really what it's about out that I have you know now that I'm happy with the way I look. I'm not happy because I know, I know, there's some more in there. I know that I've only just touched the surface of early. That's the hard thing. And now I'm chasing what's more and what's more, and I'm still really happy with what I've done. But it does it's not like it. It hasn't even scratch the each like it's still there. That's it, because you know it's because it is the process of growth. You were happy getting the APP process because obviously the abstorench just happen or not right. So yeah, you wouldn't go. You can go. Oh well, that's it. I've got at Adas. Yes, you know, because you know if you just got, then you got that was your absolute goal, which I'm sure it wasn't, because otherwise you wouldn't be like yeah, well, that's it. You know, if the goal was there, you're like, oh, that's it, but no, because you know the void is way bigger than that. You it's you know, it's our slowly progressive working towards being the best version of us, weekend be and you know that's always. You know, perhaps today you are the best version of yourself and tomorrow you will be better and better and so on. So I think that's the that's the key here. It's not the goals that matters so much, but it's more so the progression or the thing of actually doing it, and it's the fact that who we talked about. You know, it's you know, always you have to be grateful. If you're not grateful, you want to be, you won't like the process because you know you just want something else, because you know grateful for what you have. So you have to be grateful. In a sense, you have with painful because you know you've been given this life, you have the gift of life and you're able to do these things. You have to go to the gym. That's that's brilliant, because if you didn't have this, then you complete about this not having yeah, yeah, you know, happy with that. So, so I think the happiness is progression in that. Since I actually remembered the very good quote, and I kin'd remember if I came up with this quote or someone told me this. Yeah, since has a none of us. The No, no, no, like was this, is this my quote, or someone else came up with it? The quote was people feel no because people feel no because their dreams are being so big that they got achieved and people fail because they dreams are achievable and the achievement, it's true, that's in what's you achieve your dream? What's it that next? Ye, is your life around it. What are you gonna do now? Yeah, yeah, and that's why I like the small and you know, might best psychologist or might be someone who's has done it before and they helping you get to one thing. There's there's a massive goal, which might be something that you know is the you know, might be getting a certain job position. There's all these little goals along the way. They keep it going. But, but I think naturally, by the time you get close to that, that big goal, like you start to figure out other things that you want to do. So, even though you're still chasing this one goal, naturally other things come up to your life and even though you might think now, like wow, what if I got to live, like, what do I have to offer, like what do I have to chase, when you when you're slowly working towards an other a news open up and that's you know, you mentioned that the universe opening up your life and giving you pathways. That's what just happens. It's like every time you go out and do something, you do things that might be getting you close to where you want to be. You Meet New People, you have new experiences, you have maybe save a little bit of money from working so hard, and you can travel to somewhere. And then you travel when you realize well, like, I actually want to live there, and then you go live there and then, if everything's all good, and then you go travel again, it's like, well, I want to go there and do that. So it's just a constant evolution and that's not that's not that's not a bad thing, like not, that's that's the healthiness of the competition, the competitive nature that we all have as human beings is consistently looking for more and were whole. We all have it enough. Some people might not realize, but everyone has their niches or everyone has the things they love and if you can find a way to harness that same energy or that same passion that you have, it might be about bloody I don't know. It might be like a reality TV show that you love talking about. Then if you start talking you can't stop. Might be a sport like sure, you might not be able to make a career out of it, put the passion that you have when you talk about this subject, of this sport, that same energy, you can put it into other areas of your...

...life and then you can start to build from there. So, going back to what you said right at the start, that's alter. That's ultimately how it comes together. Is just slowly chipping away, like swinging the APPS, like every day by day you've got it. That's it. Got Ted tenzero trees in the forest and if you look at the forest all at once, it's impossible. But if you just go day by day, they by day there's three and them sixty five days a year and all of a sudden things just get a little bit easier. You you, when you really get locked into you start to be able to identify and look at things that you want to eliminate as well. So it might be a negative person in your life, or might be something that gives you bad energy so on, that every time you see him you're stressed out. You get there like what's going to happen this time? Just get rid of it. There might be family that you might be to come off. You just get rid of it. Like it might be might be an addiction. You just get rid of it. You use that outlet somewhere else. Like that's a that's a whole nother subject in itself and I feel I've been going to hold halfways that one. But it bleeds into all areas of your life. It's not just a night to fire thing, and that's where that's where happiness really is, like you can when I was at my most oppressed, there was all about escape. It was just trying to feel nothing. It was like being numb or was just trying to feel something for a very short period of time. And now I'm not afraid of going back to that place because I know I've gotten out of there and even if things were happened and sort of reveled, I know that I can get out of there, but ultimately just by kind of taking responsibility and realizing that, you know, it was my own actions, was of my own like poor decision making that put me into those positions. You put yourself in, it will, guess what, you can definitely get yourself out of it. Two and when you do bounce back like that, bounce back is like a straight up, like you just jump straight back to where you were before and then you keep you out. Well, that's it. That's it, and I think think the keys. If you're going to get hit, you're gonna be wound the ground, and you know it's chances are, if you're fasting that kind of adversity, chances are you leveling up. You know you will levelop once you go through it. So, yeah, about getting out of it, I mean, and sometimes it's hard, like I definitely really know. Sometimes there's been times, months and, you know, days where you just it's just hard, like you know that's not easy. Yeah, but then again, you know it's the process coming out of it. You feel strong in that ever before, you can take on life. And I'm sure something like that you know, you, you, you keep pushing it, you keep stepping up, you becoming stronger, so you that something like that would never happen to you again. Or, in a sense of talking about game before, you know you keep your levels up so you never face suppossed that you would actually lose to so yeah, keep just just ahead, you keep yourself ahead, but you know, if you do find yourself in that, there's this, you can get yourself out of it, just like I just has how you got yourself in there, and I think don't my goals and how new goes happened. I mean, I but this is this, is me and like, as I said at no and used to that before, it's well by and no mean, like you know, I consider myself yet successful and I don't think I will will call myself successful, but I feel like in that sense where I am successful, in a sense where I am in progress, in progress, you know, and I'm happy with WHO I am as in yeah, I mean Browns, and that's kind of problem R of who I am, and I know I mean progress for greater things and and the dreams that I speak of. I lived a every do you know? I talked about making the change in the world and you know, I take back the coffee cups in the coffee shop that are drink coffee at. That's you know, perhaps put a smile and good person's face, but that's still progressed with. You know, it's like you said, it's a day by dry day cutting trees, even though we shouldn't be talking about cutting trees at the moment. Man, mad yeah, but you know, if they if they had done some of deforestation or they had it done some some bloody bit more fired has induction, we could have, you know, helped it. But ultimately that was just s that was going to happen. Australia's got one of the most wild and wicked landscapes of any country in the world and you know, unfortunately it was a bit of a recipe and disaster and it's been the hottest, you know, six to twelve months that we've almost ever had. Said, yeah, that's just the whole nasty there. That's a people people like to yeah, people like to make a politically, maybe there's a little bit, but it's ultimately just this sort it is. It happens. It is happening right now and and thankfully it you know, we're, you know, thankfully we're getting through it and it's definitely the worst of it is not over. But yeah, that's scary. That, that's the definitely cuts a lot of bullshit out for you, like it cuts other things that that don't matter. That's it. Who are you thinking about in those situations? What do you think about? That'll give you the answer right there. That's it. That's it. So, yeah, it's that was just a little side great, I suppose. Yeah, it's like great love side breads. But yeah, yeah, a few years ago, when I used to live in Sydney, right, so I said, I remember, I think I said that you as well. Then I remember saying this is someone said number work towards traveling more for work, right, and I said I want to travel more for work, as in sense where I would fly bit more for work, because, you know, one day I got on a plane and I'd saw people coming for work. I was like,...

...oh, that's cool, yeah, yeah, give and give it like, you know, six months or ten months from there and you know, I was catching like four five flights a month for work. I was like, well, this is good, and I can tell you what that wasn't. That wasn't I was just like, yes, I've done it. It wasn't like that, you know. So once again the golden matter, but it was just something that you're achieved. And Yeah, and that's what I said. I was like, Oh, you know, I want to move to another place, and I moved to Melbourne and I realized, well, I don't even want to live in nobne anymore. I realize the fact that you learn more. You're like. I was like, well, I think I'm that kind of person who moves to move places and while I stay in one place, there's no reason. Yeah, because he's and see if my goal was to move to Melpo, and I had like what now, like do I live my life? It was my life, because that's not how I see it anymore, at least. You know, yeah, at that time in the move, that you definitely acted on what you felt was the right thing. They're doing. It was the right thing to do and it's good that you found now that you found your kind of your threshold where it's like, okay, I've hit my plateau here for the moment. If I stay here for now I'm just kind of doing something I don't really want to do. It's time to move on and go again, and then you get a whole bus. Think of all the experiences that you have experienced in Melbourne, the people you've met, you know, the the everything, and and you would have had that if you had that move. But in saying that, like that's something that you got to look back on. But for right now it's just like let's go again, let's keep you out. Well, that's it. That's it, and I'm thinking what's next. You know, that's the whole idea and it is bringiant because progress comes in all sensors will. Like I am, I've been working a lot for the past few years and now I'm actually looking at reducing my work all or which is which is really fascinating in a sense of where you'd say, well, you know, you're not working hard, but not actually. I'm just becoming smarter as to how I work and I want to spend time that I have from working, you know, stupid hours like working to nine PM and am to nine pm for someone else. I could build wonderful projects on my own if I focus and time and energy on my projects. I'm going. I want to reduce my effortal breaking. So it's all the working progress here and you can, yeah, you can go on to you can save some of that energy. Definitely, when you're working, you're doing something for yourself at there's a different type of motivation. For sure. There's definitely more pressure. I think depends if you've got a bad boss or not, but the pressure is different. But it's because it's just like fading, it's just like watering around grass like that, you could feel the benefits of the pressure. So you come back to it. But it's still always important to remember your own physical health and it's always important to keep, you know, not just look at the business or maybe the career side of life. It's looking at everything as a complete package and and kind of leveling up and keeping yourself strong and already so when you are ready to get back into it or when you do stumble upon an opportunity that might require you to work those hours again, it's for a completely different reason and it's yeah, well, there's there is something the burning out. They definitely is like you can just go ham and it's we live in a world where it's about going home and as hard as you can, and that's good and well and that should be your attitude. But there's also knowing when to like, Oh, I'm just running in circles. Now, time to take a step back, reassess, reevaluate and then when the time's right, the time will be right, like you know when you'll know when the time is to go again for sure. Well, you have to. You have to look at the life as a whole. You can't just look at it as he know, it's like when you buy a car. You don't buy a cove like, well, what's going to solid engine? You're the well, yeah, I'm sure he'll run great. You know it doesn't have wheels at the back. You know. Yeah, guys, it's a good don't ties they and I think it's really interesting so many people talk about all my work is so stressful. I'm so bottom work, like you know, work, so I come home. That's why I lay on the culture. I don't work out. Well, you know, let's say, if you go to the gym, you don't bring the dumbles with you to work. You know, you don't walk on with the doubles and taken straight to work and sit there by some girling clove killers. You know, you lived that at the gym. So just like that, why wouldn't you leave your work at work? Yeah, your other life, you know. Yeah, he's really this and it's it's not. I'm not going to say it's easy to separate the stress, but it's definitely do it. But you know, you're gonna have to tell yourself like you know, well, okay, well, work was stressful and to me, to be honest, I'm not gonna I'm not gonna lie. Look at shoot cot to work is people, people make stress with themselves. It's IMPOS that people. What did stress? What's happening at work? Is that so scary? I mean there's been times where you know, you what's the worst going to have? I mean knows, I'm going to beat you up at work. Right, yeah, exactly. If you're really afraid, no one's that we're going to beat you up. The worst is gonna happen is you're going to lose your job. Yeah, the worst thing that can have. Yeah, you always find a lot, probably a couple, like couple of secs out there that. Yeah, now,...

...you're right, exactly. You know, what is stress like? What people, which I work that apple factory that. Well, that's it. I don't think any of it stressful enough for people justify bringing that stress, gorant quote stress home and say, oh well, I'm so tired or count anything. Also, I will never ever achieve anything. I can't even apply for jobs because I'm so tired from work. Yeah, well, no, you like you didn't you? If you were to go to the gym, you don't bring the jump tumbles with you. If we sleep, you don't take the bed with you to work. Why do you? Why do it? Other ware around, you know? Yeah, which is which is fascinates me. I don't. Yeah, yeah, I mean I yeah, I've got a good blend of work, like, I work throughout the day, right, so I'll worry. Yeah, you know, I'll going to work at ten o'clock, perhaps, sometimes an uncle, depending on what day it is, right, and I'll come home and I'll probably do something. You know, I'll check emails and reply, but you know, sometimes they will be situation where, you know, it's annoying situation. I don't. I'm not going to go this stressful because I don't think it's stressful. It's annoying situations because you have to do something right. And most of the time it's the fear of doing something right. So yeah, yeah, at the moment, I'm going to quote quote, I'm stressed about this project that I'm doing, but really what I have to do is have to fill out a detail report. So I'm just lazy. That's why I'm saying yeah, Lazy. That's why I'm stressed about it. It's a fear of the feeling that you get. Right, yeah, it's the feeling. It's the fear of the feeling that it might give you. But really, the feeling that you're creating, the theoretical feeling, is going to be bad and if you've experienced before, that's actually it's bad. It's just going to get the first time you experienced something like that is actually is the worst it'll ever be. You know, there are exceptional circumstances where, you know, you might work in the environment with a really you know, you might have to have a job whatever else. Like, I can't speak for everyone, obviously, because everyone has their own story, but the first time you experience something is generally going to be the hardest time one, because you don't know what was going to happen. At what happened and to. You weren't prepared for it at all. Well, that's it, and I can tell you about people. So, you know, I think I am pretty sure. Well, I know for a fact her. Everyone hates me at my come, the place that I work at, and you know, because, within their right reason, I'm you know, I've been quoted as a Brat. We've got righteous who quote it a mouse, even righteous fool quote, you know, caught on court. You know, Brad could unquote all these things. And people don't like me for my attitude. You know, they they want to indulge into that. Oh, you know, I'm stressed, got rupert. I'm stressed. Well, fuck you, I'm not stressed, you know, and you know, if your stress, you can, you know, make yourself. You know who's had in your resolution. This is it, you know, and it's the indulgement of it. You know, people like indulging in that. Or, you know, I'm stressed in life is so hard. They like sitting in the because, you know, that means that gives them the A, that gives them a that makes it okay for them to put minimal effort, in minimal energy into work. Yeah, and go home yell at their parents. And Yell at their you know, husband or wife, whatever it is, and it makes it okay because, you know what, I'm stressed about work. I don't think people are stressed about work. I think people are just making excuses for everything. Yeah, they're worried. is a feeling that it gives them, when really the feeling is brought on largely by your thoughts and how you perceive them as well. That's kind of a circle effect with other areas of your life as well. What was that last point you just said? I just had a point. I forgot it. People having excuse to go home to yell at their parents wife. Yeah, yeah, yeah, so you give yourself that excuse as the same with physically not feeling great, like if you give yourself that excuse, and the strange thing is, even though it's like a really bad experience, might actually be the worst experience of Your Life, there is comfort in it because you're just feeling that way normally. So you actually don't have to do anything to change it. So in that's what lazy is kind of is. It's not doing nothing, so it's not changing it. So even though, like, I've had to rewire the way I think to like you know, I was getting to the stage where I wasn't finding a lot of happiness in a lot of things, and now that I'm out of that stage and a lot of things that make me happy, I still have like this inner voice. There's like in a in a habit that I created that it said, I this is not going to last, like this little bit of good feeling that you have is going to go back, it's going to go away, and that's kind of what you get trapped in. You get trapped in believing that your circumstances what you kind of deserved and might be actually what you deserve, and you might need to experience that for a certain period of time to help you grow. But that's when people go from, you know, that being their life for a few months or a year, when that becomes twenty, when that becomes decades. Like that's what it is like. It's just not getting out of your comfort zone a little bit, starting a new hobby, start doing something you wanted to do. That's that's kind of the the real trip behind doing a martial art or doing real heart exercises. Physically, that's the hardest thing you're going to have to do. Like physically, you won't it do anything else that at your drama or anything else, unless you're in the military, but that's...

...a different thing. Well that if you're if you're a sparring like physically, you're not going to do anything harder than that. So if you can get through that, you can get through anything else. And at the end of the day, if if it's unbearable, just leave the job. You know you might. Yeah, if it's unbearable, just go. Just go. There's so many avenues, there's so many things you could do, even worse jobs that you might feel like you're taking a step down, you're getting rid of a lot of that stress. You're getting the rid of a stress from a bad boss, from taking a commute on public transport that's sucks really bad, from I don't know, whatever it is. Maybe you give yourself maybe look you think less of yourself because you work a certain job, whatever it is, I think that's a little bit different. You can change that kind of reception a bit, but just leave like you don't have to trapped into it. You know really don't. And it is there's only two ways right. So something there's only two answers with something that you don't like great, either change your attitude about it or change. That's conditions. Simple, that has no other circumstance. Yeah, you can't complaining about it. Want do anything. You have to sue your attitude about it or you have to I mean, you know, changing your attitude about it will actually probably get you a situation anyway. Or, yeah, King, you're changing the position itself. It's always about that. It's always about those two. There's only two ways out of it. And you know, I would sort quickly talk about you know, and I'll when I spoke about you know, when you go home and you have a reason to yell at someone, will get angry, which is really interesting actually. I want to remind me of this. And Anger Right, so people, people have a lot of like anger is shops and you know, complains because I'm stressed because of work and all that stuff. I'm angry. It's just reminding you of something funny. It's like when you go to work, right, you know, and go to work, your boss is having a bad day and you just know he's gonna use, gonna come out saying at someone right. So, yeah, it's it's guys, guys that come out swing a hundred percent always happens right, and you know he'd come at you and he'll stand next to you just, you know, hover around and you know sure enough you'll do something, he'll say something right and he'll just just give you a lecture for thirty minutes. What do you do? Do you tell me? Do you know? What do you do? Do Search to tell him? Do you know, go to his room, or do you do you tell him to fuck off? You don't, because you just know it's in he's in a position of power. You don't say anything. But when you go home or has done and you're angry. You know, yeah, your when your kid does something or your wife does something you don't like, or your husband does something, you're angry ready. The way, the anger come from all of a sudden, you're angry. Why are you angry? Because I just think it's people are often angry as well as because they just can't. They just have them. You know they know their wife's not gonna still give them lunch, still gonna give them dinner, or that. You know their husband's not gonna, you know, you know still hang me around, or you know their kids not going to yell back at them. Or hit them? Yeah, buy them from a job. So they just yet they have the right to be angry. So that, I think a lot of it is, goes back to saying that you change your attitude about this problem or you change the change the problem itself. So I think all people have choices. I do think people have choices. I mean there's anario is exception. You know, you could say in the scenario were you addicted to a drug and it's hard because you know, you make justifications to yourself in those scenarios. I'm not talking about that snow. I'm doing much general life that people are building control of their lives, but they just don't want to put the energy in to change their attitude or how the problem is. Yeah, and that's because, yeah, that's because it then becomes it's kind of then becomes on you and there's a certain comfort to working for someone, working a job that you feel like you're the job's going to be there for you. It might not be the most exciting job, but you're a number, you can sort of get the job done and on the one hand it's like I hate the circumstance, but on the other hand it's like, well, it's I don't have to do too much. I'm actually not forced to do anything. But in and itself, like when if you're constant stuck in that state for too long, like that's where you start to throw and play out. And again it's like that output versus what you get back. Like you, you aren't putting a lot out, so you're not actually going to feel a lot back. I think nature grain put that on one of their boxes. You Get out what you put in. Well, that's yeah, yeah, and you know you are a product of what you can see him, whether it's content or with this food is simple, wherever's feed, that's exactly right. And food does play such a massive impact on it and so many people don't pay attention to it one because they don't actually understand how significant it is. Like like sugar, for example. Without like sugar set sixty sent eighty percent of cancer can be drastically avoided or cut back all together without the consumption of sugar. Like it's there's so many things like that in the nutritional field. That's just crazy and learning about. But ultimately it's about like you're putting feel into your body. If you put really bad feel into your carts and you're not going to get a great output if you're constantly and the reason why people eat certain foods is out of habit,...

...but it's also it's a it's guaranteed comfort for a few minutes. You're going to feel really good down in that Cheeseburg or eating that that fried food or whatever else. But it's just it's putting empty nutrients and is putting no value back into your body. So you're not going to get value out. And one one thing I could say to anyone is, like just monitor how your food and your mood like. You eat something and five to ten minutes later it'll be very quick. It's not even that long, fifteen minutes Max. How does that food make you feel like? And that'll that will and if you're struggling with mental health, like that'll help. Like how to what am I eating? How is that making me think? How as my outlooked, as my day get better or worse after a you know I said, I mean you look at how much vitamin see, vitamin see and you Antioch Oxygens have on you, like you know, you talk about scientifically proven. You eat dark chocolate, dark chocolate, not normal chocolate. As a revery clear. Yeah, chocolate, seventy percent coker. That's the best we've got one on the market. Still a lot of shoes are in there, but it's the lesser of all the evils show. Yeah, so you instantly feel better. It is known to make you because it so. It has actually an empty dog an ties anti dogs and antid dogs, whatever it is called. Right, and offer them antioxidants and it also triggers Seaton and and Saratonin has be ex scientifically known to be the happy chemical sympols. That, yeah, it is. You could feel good home. Yeah, actually, you know why didn't see? Is Essentials of people, don't you know? I know people who haven't eaten, you know, a vegetable in years, like you know. Yeah, yeah, since they must force them to do. Yeah, like I've seen, you know, I've seen some of the boys do it, pick out all the green parts from the food. You know, it's those kind of things. I picked out the pick like anything that's green, like Pi get up, and that's where all the nutritions are coming out. Like one of the biggest misconception in the whole and this is the problem with this. Is this so much spread. The people who are watching books about it as well, don't know what they're talking about. Like one of the biggest one is like carbohydrates versus fat. Everyone knows is like, well, if you're losing weight, you gotta cut the facts right, because it's pretty obvious. You know, the people like well, you know, I'm going to have low fat milk, I'm going to have low fat, is low fat, Yo get and all everything Lott Fat. But they consuming Carbo highers like not tomorrow. And what they're missing the point is the Carbo hydress or, you know, want of carbohydrates are just like everything is sugar. It's like because and that's what's causing the causing you to become fat or like causing of the problems, because Carbo hydrates are the problem, not so much the fads. It's not the the problem that you need them in a moderation, right, but you need yeah, definitely. What what's what you eat with your cover or you can't. You can't eating white bread and expecting and drinking light, you know, you know, Skim soid, like the expecting moves weight. Yeah, exactly right. And that that sort of low fat, that low factory and the marketing industry of took over the marking aspect of the food industry because because obviously people hear that and they think of body fat, but dietary fat and and the like. I guess nutritional science called Calls Dietary Fat Lipids for that reason. So I wants to separate the word out of, you know, fat and facts. But carbohydrates you can eat like obviously vegetables are a great source of carbohydrates. A small amount of fruit is really good. Fruit is predominantly made up of something called through toast, which is fruit sugar. So that's like your insolence. That's not great for you. So beans and those sort of foods that have certain types of rice rights. That is a little bit difficult. Rock Rice requires a lot of instident to break down your body. So it's not all, not as good as say, your good quality Greens and beans. But and a little bit of nuts as well, like cashew's are really high in Carbo hydrates. But the predominant US also migrate to index, so they also look less in the index. So that's a difference. So you know about the glastic index day. That's what I've wanted to say. Yeah, rights is actually quite high on the Glassy but, and I was the same with most fruits. Yeah, so that's the problem with Carbo hydrates is predominant. Use. Go ahead, go ahead. Not. Not all CARBS are made equals. That's definitely it all comes with, especially the ones that have addedives and have ingredients added into to increase the taste. Right. Yeah, you know, one would have seemed to most rise, you will say. Well, describe by hydrant high income, and you know often most rice are highing. You have a high glascomic index. Yeah, you know, glass and indexes how quickly your body is was it processing it? Yeah, so it's how quickly at your it forces your body to yeah, to bring insulin into the lever to break down the suit. So, yeah, White Rice actually has more a high glycemic index rating, and I don't sure about then. Can it's big. So its not what sixty is? I like that body builds and, like...

...you know, one would, as seems, been eating chicken and rice. Bread is not then also jabbing for years as well. It's been doing exceptive about some growth, my monk. And that's the thing about Hollywood, that's the thing about all these things, is like people don't like to talk about it because it's been it's been criminalized and a lot of countries, and particularly with sport, like it's an illegal actor. Take your cut, take performance enhancing drugs for a reason. But that's the truth. Like when you when you do put artificial or you do add artificial amounts of testosterone you take. I don't think they do as much intolent as they do anymore. That's kind of like an old, old method of doing it. But like you do a growth hormoney, do decker, you do clean beauty role that cuts the fat off your body no matter what. Like you do have these outside sources and general they have a lot of money to have the best nutritionist cookie them the exact right amount of food and they training and accept the amount of body buildings. kind of like a tricky one, because they do train the lot and they do generally eat pretty well. It's just their ultimate goal is not it's they want to be healthy, but it's the put on as much mass as possible. So, yeah, that's not good in the long run. It is. You know, that's the the I think a lot of people should like you, got to think about your think about if you were to live a perfect day, like you know. If you want to feel so this is it's all has to be equal, like you know, if you want to feel healthy and have energy yet look good, if you're talking about that, and you have to get you have to get scientific it, like you know. Yeah, you guys definitely got. There's some things you have to take out, like simple. You will never eat white bread, simple as that. That's no way, not now. You should never. I don't. I don't tell yeah, I don't. I've gotten rid of all bread, but that that's because my body doesn't digest grains really well anymore. So I've yes, decided to get rid of it. There's a lot of people that still can eat like a good good one would be high five by low GI bread bakers. The light sell it, and that's because what fiber does is it is it's in keep nutrit in your body that helps you break down a digest are carbohydrates, and some one will love foods to but promerly Carbo hydrates, and that's why, you know, people shit, that's why they use it as like a laxity, because it literally helps you break down carbohydrates. But yeah, it's about certainly there's a balance stood as well, and I have that type of personality where I like to go in and I like to I'm not just going to do it to be okay at and I want to be as good as I can be and help other people. So, and people love their food to like past there's another big one, like there's certain types of strains of past the, like Spaghetti, is okay, but most parts that have added theves and most pastors have been genetically modified and very nice. But at the same time, if you want to eat past that, you have to make sacrifices in other areas. You might have to. Well, have, you know, cut out the sugar in the soft drink, which we shouldn't be having anyway, but well, at some of the sugar. Yeah, it's sugar in general. Yeah, yeah, I mean it's good and there's no once again, you know, like I said, there's no no sugar coating. Is Literally we should. Yeah, literally that. There's no Shuser of courting is, you know, people just people want confert because they want to, they want to be able to. Yeah, my only comfort thing is drinking, you know. So it got yeah, China, yeah, you know, I don't. So can you know so, yeah, you love the silly. So then I try to forget I didn't mind it. I did mind it. You know, people's things all are you know, I want my soft ring. I just have one softwing. Good Day. Well, you know, and past as. Okay, you know, it's a healthy nice now you had sugar in the morning. You're shooting pasta, like you, and you you, you're saying that it's the fullt of, you know, your Skim, the milk that you drink, which is because there was full creams. That's why your fast. Yeah, well, the fuck are your fat? Because you eat Carbo hydrates all day and you have energy and you can't move because you don't have energy because all you did was consume sugar and, you know, in sellence through the roof. So that's a right to move. It's as the primary role, just in terms of nutritional density, like there are legumes and there are certain beans that and veggies as well, because there's seventy vitamins and that sort of thing in veggies. But even Veggie's you hit your threshold pretty quickly. That's why it is four, five, six servings like that. Is that is kind of, you know, two, three, hundred four hundred grams of of vegetables, which does seem like a lot, but if you're not eating up but any other Carbo hydrates, then you can get that in really easy. Like my breakfast I just had there. I had a hundred eighty great, I had the hundred sixty grams of Kale, like I just smash that stuff right now. A little bit of tomatoes. But really what carbohydrates do is your body if you're eating a lot of it, which most of us are, the standard, American, standard, Australian, most diets, most at places you go, most packaged foods have a high carbohydrate. You know, quantity percentage in them. Is Your bodies just all the energy that you're using, that you're getting throughout the day. Your body's just having to break the food down. So that's why you might have these big spikes and you feel really good, you know, then he kind of come crashing down. It's like fucking it. Eat again to feel better than you feel a little better and it's coming back down and that has a massive effect on in mental health. And at the end of the day, that's why Abas is people as big as they've ever been. It's only getting worse. Like I live in cops harbor, a beach side town, and I mean the percentage...

...of people with, quote unquote, beach bodies, and it's not about having a big body, but people that are healthy, is it's very low. Like it isn't it isn't good and people kind of have a distorted reality of like what healthy is or what sum of that's it is. I got and happy, got something healthy, but now it's not that, it's not and I think, and I honestly think, it's about feeling great. And you know, people here's the people have accepted the fact that feeling tired and napping during the days just not like. Okay, NAP's good, but that's good for you. But you know, people feeling stired have just accepted as real. Yeah, yeah, it's not reality to you know. Yeah, I saw it lappy if I wanted to. The only time I will nap is if I if I stay up too late and I've only slept three or four hours. There I need to get my six or seven and I don't. I don't need it, orline hours. What I'm eating healthy. Seventh good, but any then, well know, and I'm going to I'm a trigger people, and I want to say this. I wait, like yeah, I don't wake up super early, but I also go to sleep. So I got so like my sleeping hours. is somewhere telling you this before I tell you what I'm about to say. Yeah, my sleeping hours would be from like I still don't sleep till like two thirty three o'clock, right. Yeah, wake up. I'd wake up at like eight thirty, two, nine o'clock. That's my wakeup, lime mine. Yeah, so I don't wake up. Not Always. Rea this year I've been trying to think, go like sleep early, but that, yeah, that's what my previous time have been. But I'm not. And what I do is this is how my day works. I don't eat breakfast. I don't eat breakfast always, and I drink delayed coffee as well. So I delay in my caffeine, in take until late. Yeah, and I my cafe coffee would be, and you know, it would probably be just up long black if I'm drinking coffee. And in the morning I'll drink some water, and this is an and all the way through till one o'clock, I won't eat food. So you're doing at a Meta fasting. Yeah, to you know talking you. I want you food, and you know when I'll eat food. will be something like probably something is high in fat and high in protein. Look, I'm hils right, I'M NOT gonna lie to people. I never run of energy. I'm ready to go to the gym at nine o'clock at night. I'm never out of energy. I've never sit down below home tie. I don't remember the last time I was really tired, and then it's is now, but I don't remember I was tired like yeah, you know, you get died after a longer and after the last get, but I don't remember being tired of it, like that's why I have to we have. I think that's probatly why I we have someone energy all the time. That's right. Yeah, that's right. And there's a little bit adday and they tea. There's over stimulation, like there's definitely caffeine, and that's what caffeine is. It's a stimulant. It's not it's not an energy source, it's a stimulant. So it's stimulating the enjoying or blind in your body and it's not doing it in the most healthy of way. If you limit it to a lower amount, just like having a couple of drinks at a day. Like your body can process that. Like as long as you're giving you're doing other things. And we obviously grew up in the you know, really when we started lifting, that's where, you know, kind of the online fitness industry was speaking. So we had supplements, we had pre workouts and everyone had to take pre work out. Your work out a better we pre work out and all this sort of things. So I'm kind of feeling the effects of that now and still getting the terms with it. But yew, minds very similar. If I had my ideal not my ideal life is that actually a red balls are just a Red Bull Cup. It's a terrible up head water in it. But I was just saying it's another bad one. Yeah, I read Bull. Yeah, exactly. Andy to drink to the big one. You can go low sugar. That kind of helps you taking one of the bad ingredients out of it, but still, at the end of the day it's not good. But my I guess I would love to. I feel like I'm a little bit of a night outside actually like being up late. If I had my way, I'd go to sleep at like one o'clock and wake up at seven forty five and eight o'clock, but because I like to train in the morning, I go to class seven and eight o'clock. I try to get to into bed by ten thirty and when I'm eating pretty healthy in the day and I'm not spiking my intellent old day every day, I actually do get tired at that time now. So I usually sleep by eleven, two six. I get my seven, seven and a half hours. I'm lucky and the main reason why I'm getting up at that time is to train, like because I have a scheduled class time. If it was my preferred I'd be up to one, two o'clock, just because I'm like you are, like being up a little bit later. I feel like my brain goes into like I kind of get this little it's just I have read a little bit on it and I have watched podcast on I can't recall it exactly. There's like a certain state after midnight you can kind of it's only a few few hours, but you just kind of go to this different level of thinking and because everyone's sleeping, this kind of like this weird it's almost like an unmeasurable effect that you get. It's like. Okay, actually, you know something about this is nice, but it's also a lot of that is also gladness as well, and it's just about being weight later. You know, we're always forced to go to certain bedtimes by our parents and it could be a little bit of deep psychology along those lines too, but I've come to accept and eating healthy is actually got me to go to bed by ten or eleven o'clock and that I'm up by six, seven o'clock every and then my first meal. I do train pretty intensely in the morning, so sometimes I will have to eat some color hydrates with my break and that's usually just been veggies recently, and I might have some rise from the night before.

But if I can power through the yeah, I like to. I like to go to about one o'clock, so that's about it. If I last moves at nine o'clock. That's about a forty and fifteen hour fast every day and that I feel like my body's good there because I love food. I'm a food you like that. I'd love to eat cakes on a get there on bigger sugarhead in the world. But when I'm constant, when I'm not thinking about food, my energies is a lot more stable. I eat a big meal like I could generally eat twice a day and they're there anywhere from eight hundred fourteen hundred calories. That that like in at one sitting. But because it's relatively clean and it's like it's probably two hundred grams of salmon or two hundred grams are protein at once. It's probably a hundred and fifty to two grams of veggies, and then it's like I always have my sources. I have like a little bit of thing that I like with it. Then generally I'm having like I'm having like the little bit of fruit along the sides of that to so and if I have to snack during those mid days, I'm having like almonds, which are nutritionly dense. Arm as one of the most like if you want to talk about a super food, there's no such thing really super foods, because foods are what they are, like every food is different. New Almonds are actually one of them, the best super foods and can get. There's like a little bit of carbohydrates, as heaps of facts, as heaps of protein, heaps potassium. There's more potassium program in almonds than there is bananas and what people have always correlated potassium with bananas and what Potassium is. It's it's a mineral, just like salt, just like sodium, and it's key function in the bodies to stop, to press the appetite, kind of gets into your gut and it lets all the kind of lets all the cells in your stomach know that, okay, we don't have to eat right now, we can just chill, like it's kind of main function is that is actually just a guy right. So that's why if they if you have a banana, say after a big meal, and you feel like I'm dieting, I'm doing really well, I'm trying my best, but I just can't wait. Get Hungry. One probably up there the facts as well, because fats have a higher program facts are have more calories than carbs or protein as well. So you're going to get more calories in, you're going to be full, but you might be missing potassium as well. So almonds and bananas and even just a potassium supplement here or there is pretty good for that too. So that's one thing I think found that helped me, and I think it's always more version as well. Like, yeah, I know Almond's are very high in calories, right, so like very yeah, definitely. That's why it's they're so nutritionally dense. But you get full really quickly, you know, you get to full use. What you do is like, you know, let's say, if you have, if you'd five alms, you great, like that's by moments. Is Roughly, I think hundred fifty, hundred thirty gals, some of that. But if you have memory, like you know hunt, hundred grams, arms are small, remember, so a hundred grams of ms arm and so so like little nuts. So a hundred grams of Omans. I'm not exactly sure how many calories is. I think it's about three hundred ish. So you could go. Actually, one thing I like doing as I like going to calls. Now will lose my do it to and I have like the little nut section and like drive fruit and you can actually like way it up to in the the that's right, bags and you can put it on the scale. So I actually like to do that. I'll do about fifty grams at a time and that kind is like my snacks for the week. That's a really good layer. Going to calls and way five almons are thirty five galleries, right. So, yeah, almonds are nothing, right. So let me know if you think about let's say, if you had by almonds, is nothing, but the people will end up having like fifty almonds, right. It was so easily. Yeah, and you know how many should we sold on there? Yeah, so the now that's three hundred and fifty galleries. So you know. So that Jane is the game. Yea Three hundred fifty. Yeah, message. Yeah, I'm a hundred grams of almonds is about three hundred and fifty. So yeah, yeah, they are thereabouts. So it depends on how you do it. But like if if it's your predominant like if you go into the movies and you're eating them like popcorns while, then you're going to get sorted out pretty quickly. But if you're eating it as a snack in between really big meals and good quality meals, you actually won't. You won't eat, like your body would know when to stop. And that's the thing with salt to salt kind of acts like a little bit of a blocker, like that's why you can eat more and more of it. So you definitely be careful. But if you're weighing it out and give yourself a certain amount, like then you just want yeah, but if you get like a big bag, eight hundred gran bag, it's well, then it's the fucking visual as well. You just going to keep going and so you like it, that's it, and I think, okay, well, I think we should probably wrap up soon because I I think have gone over an hour now, which is, yeah, very awesome. Yeah, I think it is. I want to do an I want to do an exercise for people who watch this. Maybe they can try it out or if not, I want people to try out. You know, basically do exactly what they do with their food in a day. Right, to do, you know, don't even think about what you're doing. But throughout, so when you wait, if you wake up and you know, go make a note of how you feel at nine o'clock in the morning. Yeah, you know, just read your how you general mood from nine o'clock in the morning, maybe written from one to ten, and then the next one at three o'clock and nine...

...was to see. Yeah, let's next one at three o'clock and then six o'clock and then night o'clock at night. Right. So just, you know, do that like. You Know How you feel, Journal how do you feel generally right, how high? What you say is like, I feel anxious. Do you feel? It's like how you want a scale of one to ten. How well do you feel? Do you feel sleepy, yed, Short, like, you know, go from zero being feeling like Shit and death them on want to jump, you jump of a page and pending, like I can do this right, yes, of that, and you do that and the following day to this. So wake up in the morning, don't have breakfast straight away. Wet It out if you if you don't, if you know, use intimate fasting. Don't do the whole long stretch now. But you know, we should really be guess, not hours. Yes, yeah, so when you you wake up, having a have a glass of water, you're a big glass of water, and you know, sort of delay your breakfast, delay your coffee till at least ten thirty to eleven o'clock at least. It's so important because if you have caffine in the first thing in the morning, that's probably is not the thing and instead of having, yeah, I have a have a coffee and then, you know, push your breakfast, instead of having your normal breakfast. Try to find a high fat, high protein breakfast. So, you know, maybe what would be a good example of like coming, you can buy e stright. Yeah, yes, you have eggs. Act fucking easily to die. Just this all easy to die, a scramble anyway, anyway, you like it. Anyway. Yeah, boil there. You know anything. So I have eggs. So high fat, high protein. And when you get home, have he and once again, high fat, hyph protein. Maybe a steak or something. Were grilled chicken, you know, with the little bit of veggies or a spare. Guess that's very good at some of the good one. Yeah, yeah, probably by the H don't be afraid of red meat either. You said it is that. This is those big and pricks. No, listen to those game changing cricks. So I bring you set the fish feelish is great. Fish is probably the best salmon, hope, probably the best quality year. So yeah, and we'll yeah, it's if you give that a go and if if you like Shin, go back to your own habit. If you don't, then you know, there's your end tower to how to be better, stronger. That's right. Yeah, and it Hash to AGG brillant. That's a brilliant dopumentary on Netflix, is all, if you want to check it out. It's about sticks from your budding. Oh yeah, yeah, it's pretty good and and at the same time, like if you're used to having sugar or date, your body's going to really want that because it is the quick you get a real quick satisfaction of it and it is a real addictive property to it. And one little this will be my last little bit before I we go to is the so scientists have proven and showing that your stress hormone in a body, which is called Cortisol, is generally at its highest naturally at about eight to nine o'clock in the morning. That's just something that happens over night when your body's digesting the foods and whatever's left over. So around eight or nine o'clock in the morning, cartisol levels are really high. So that's why you might wake up in the morning feeling really anxious and stressed. And Yeah, when you're giving it coffee as well, it's just you're just peeking that exactly. Yeah, that's that's just one. There's one thing about court as all, which is a stress home storks dress hormone called as all, runs off glue post. So if you exercise in the morning, when you exercise the first basically the first twenty to thirty minutes of exercise or any sort of real heart intensity exercise, you're having to lose gluecose as a ful source just because that's what your bodies used to fats and proteens come a little bit later and they work. They're hard at that kind of process. There's different methods of getting it out of your body, but the most quicker safe you go for a run. If you do a thirty minute higher the bill high and it will class. If you do any sort of exercise in the morning, your body's going to burn through glucose and therefore it's actually gone to lower your carts all levels, because cause or runs off glucose. So one and the same. That's why when you work out in the morning specifically, or workout at all, people say I always feel really good afterwards. There's definitely a sense of achievement with it, but you're you're literally burning away the stress. You're burning away caudals or levels in your body. So it also just get out this. Yeah, also your bring releases ceradlins. Yeah, open in and all that sort of thing exactly right. But which is when you when you release it, when you get rid of that stress. So called as all, which is a dress hormone, runs off glucose, which is carbohydrates and sugars. So well, it's pretty free and in the notes or the common section before the description section, will put few notes as to how you should try your next day and rate your how you feel. Maybe worked out in the morning is well, all those kind of thing and see how you've yeah, and then the people and it doesn't you don't have to go to the gym and fuck it, Benure hundred healers. It could just be taking the dogs for a walk, it could be walking around your block, it could be going up a few it could be doing fifty push ups a I like the idea of going to a gym, and particularly going to a class, because there is a sense of accountability there. But any sort of move that, anything where you're raising your heart rate even a little bit, that's going to help start burning the fuel that you have from the next day. You're burning through the glucose,...

...which in turn cuts back at your cortisol and helps your body, helps digest and it starts it up. And ultimately, if you're just eating food all day, your body's digesting food all day and that's a fun thing. And it's not yet that's just energy. There's fifty percent of your energy gone to challenge, you know, to do the rest any and and you know, it's a fact that when you're digesting, though, there's a blood all the blood rushes down to your stomach like you know, it's helping it. And so often that's that's why I don't know if people know when they have a big meal, they often feel really look hagic in like really, that makes sense. You know that's because your brains not getting all the fresh oxygenated blood and all the blood because your stomach is digesting as well. So, yeah, it's required. Is Good reason why you shouldn't be always eating. You need to be fasted, like your boy goes this two stages. You know, your body will is motabolizing and fasted. You what you need to do is spend more time in the fasted state versus, yeah, in the multabolizing state, because you don't. Yet most people go through life always motabilizing. Okays, is that that's right. And and know we were raised with you know, cereals and all and eating sandwiches and toast in the morning and all these food so, anyway, that's a whole nother pod. Yeah, that's a hold other PODCAS gas wouldn't go to be glad. I'm glad that we're going getting the nutritional vibes together. We can really get get into that and that's that's my passion right now. So that's what well, next episode is a Bun. Fine, that's it, baby, let's do it next up. So, yeah, that's been the clever dummies podcast.
