Make rest a necessity, not an objective

I spent a few hours on the road again today, and for 3 hours I listened to more classic personal development material. I am so into Jim Rohn at the moment, the guy was truly the master. And I resonate with everything he says.

Today’s Gem: “Make rest a necessity not an objective.”

To me, that is PROFOUND.

See, this is how I interpreted that, and this is what MND is all about.
Too many people are low on energy, they lack the energy it takes to get on, to get ahead, to want more and do more. Oh they don’t think they are sick….not when they are 25, 30, 35 or even the grand old age of 40! No, they don’t think they of themselves as weary, low-energy type people, they just say “Life’s hectic!” “I’m so busy” “Work is very busy at the moment” and the favourite “I’m so stressed out, I just need a rest!” “I need a holiday” and “Oh roll on the weekend!” Read more

MND stance on alcohol

Alcohol is another topic I am asked about literally all the time, like pretty much every single day. Alcohol can be an emotive topic for a lot of people, and it is something many people find hard to give up. Or perhaps more pertinent…it’s something that I find, with a lot of people, they are very resistant to the thought of completely giving it up.

Personally, I am teetotal now, just over 3 years at time of writing, and I can honestly say it’s one of the best decisions I have ever made. Certain friends gently encouraged me in this direction using wisdom not pressure, and I am eternally grateful to them for that little ‘gentle push’. Now I am clear and free from having alcohol in my life, I look at the world of alcohol and what it does to people, with a very clear external view of the effect this psychotropic drug has on people’s lives.

You can read about how, when and why I personally quit (I used to drink quite a lot) here:

Now, to address the MND official position on alcohol, and the question I am most commonly asked, which is usually something like “I understand that heavy boozing is bad for you and it will make you fat, but don’t they say moderate alcohol consumption is good for you? Isn’t it supposed to be healthier to drink a glass of red wine every day, than to abstain completely?”

If you intend to completely live the MND way, then I recommend Read more

What oil to cook with?

Here is a real quick post – people ask me all the time what oil I cook with. It’s very simple:

  • Pork dripping for cooking
  • Extra virgin olive oil for cold applications (such as on salad)
  • Grass-fed butter for my morning eggs

That’s it!

Simples!

Here is a super short video for you:

MND TV Episode 10 – a few quick thoughts on stress

MND TV Episode 10 – a short intro to the topic of stress.

We all hear about stress all the time, and we know stress is bad for us, but many people don’t really know exactly what this means and how it all affects our health.

This short episode of MND TV explains what stress is, how stress hormones affect us and how this all fits together with the big-picture MND way of thinking!
