I have to stamp out this blog post before the time passes and it's assimilated in my thought process completely and I've moved on and forgotten it, because then I can't write about it anymore. Run on sentence. Just last year, at the age of 28/29, I realized that one day, I'm going to die. It finally hit me that I am not invincible. Sure, I've thought about the after life a lot and have my thoughts about it (I'm hoping we just change form into some other cool existence), but up until this … [Read more...] about We’re all going to die and that’s okay.
UPDATE! This is an old blog post from 2013. But in 2017 I created YouTube video without even realizing I had made such a blog post. So here is the video and you could read the rest later: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_MnKpKme-o For a long time my posture wasn't very good. Like a typical computer-user, I had rounded shoulders and forward-head-syndrome. As of late, I've been trying to achieve perfect posture.

I figured out how to hold 'Crow Pose' (pictured above) a couple months ago and it felt like suuuuuuuuuuuch an accomplishment. It took weeks of practice but now looking back, I realized why it took so long. In the beginning I wasn't able to hold the pose for more than a second because my wrists, forearms and shoulders weren't strong enough. As they got stronger, I realized I kept falling back because when you start to fall forward, your head goes upside down and it feels scary. It's … [Read more...] about The Joy of Learning Crow Pose
I'm about 2 weeks into doing something I've never done before: Counting my calories. Early on I realized I eat about 2,500 calories a day and easily go over 3,000. When I first poured 1 serving of cereal into a measuring cup to see what 1 cup was like, I realized I eat not just one but several servings of cereal in the morning. Good thing I'm extremely active! If I wasn't, I'd definitely be racking on the fat, especially for my age (nearly 30 baby!). I realized I've been eating A LOT, … [Read more...] about Antranik’s Counting Calories
Whenever people want to try out the traveling rings for the first time, many are often scared they are going suck at them. I'm always encouraging people to do it and am very supportive of them the entire time because I was terrible at it when I first started. I couldn't even hang on for too long because I was heavy and my grip wasn't strong enough. Over the past year, I've helped dozens of people try them out for the first time and I've seen them improve tremendously. The first time you try … [Read more...] about Quick motivation for trying new things
