After quite a long pause, here’s the new blog post. The past weeks or even months have been quite tough, so I decided to write today’s blog post about what keeps me doing.
Doing sports is one of the most important aspects of our life. Our body is made to be moving, to be running. Taking the bus to work and sitting all day long in front of the computer isn’t doing any good at all.
That’s the reason why most of us are getting sick. Having no perspective on life. Having no motivation. And of course, pain in the back or wherever.
I don’t expect you to do sports ten times a week. Even the small things can make a major difference. Going to the supermarket next door on foot, taking the bicycle to meet friends or swimming in the lake. Once you apply sports to your life you will see huge improvements in your quality of life.
So, how often do you do sports a week? Do you still use the bicycle despite you can go by car? Do you see the difference whether you do sports or not in your daily life?
The past weeks I focused on writing about philosophical topics. However, I thought it would be more than appropriate for this week’s blog to write something personal. In the very beginning of my so-called “blogging” career I talked about what inspires me to produce music, my journey and what I’m looking forward to in the future.
Nonetheless, the most important is to enjoy the moment. So I’d love to talk about what my life currently looks like, the problems I’m facing and, of course, the small successes I’m having.
I wonder what the maximum amount of time, yes, I’m talking about time, is you can put into working until your body and mind stagnates. Currently, I work about 70-80 hours a week excluding the time I spend for travelling. It seems to work out fine for me, I still got lots of energy and I can accomplish most of my work in time without losing quality. Until it’s sunday. Sunday’s the day I get nothing done even if I try hard.
So I rather spend my sundays with reading a book, sleeping or doing nothing. I cannot work 7 days a week without any breaks and little amount of sleep. I doubt anybody can do so.
What still keeps me up to do my work are the little achievements. The ones I know I got better, even if it’s just a bit. There’s nothing greater than seeing someone’s checking your work and they see you put effort in it. And they like it.
I did some artwork for a friend last week, finished the mastering for others and a new song whilst I coped with school. What excites me the most is that I got deeper into video animation. Video animation is like a super professional topic for me. I didn’t know it’s that hard. But I can do it if I really want to.
So finally, what keeps me going to do all this stuff? It’s just the little things in life that I enjoy and appreciate!
