Giving in ain’t easy. So I thought maybe I could be a little more tolerant especially to those people around me. Well, my family basically. But this is way too fucked up. Every one complain about other’s attitude, ‘idiotic-ness’, ‘stupid-ness’, forever insisting they are right, but no one ever reflect on their own attitude before shouting the entire block down. Fuck this seriously.
One of my favourite scene. My heart can’t melt any further. Too adorable!!
Such amazing quality of light. Such amazing experience. Never knew I had such a heart for Aussie. Thank you for your beauty, thank you for keeping us safe.
Never felt so so good after exercising. Actually I have always been. Just that going back the the same routine after 3 weeks made it feel particularly good.
Sometimes, well actually most of the time, when people know I work out on a regular basis, I feel especially annoyed when they go: “Wahh, so enthu” “You very fat meh” “So fit” blah blah blah. And then you know sometimes the comments they make are either sarcastic, or saying for the sake of saying. Not sure if it makes sense, but to be honest, I DON’T exercise because I’m trying to lose weight or whatsoever. Yes I have to admit the numbers on the scale affects me, I do complain about myself being fat. But that isn’t the whole point. I came across an article and I thought it speaks for majority of the people who work out.
1. Makes You Healthier
Studies have shown that exercising regularly several times a week can lower the risk of certain diseases, including Diabetes Type II and heart disease. Regular exercise can lower your risk of developing Diabetes Type II because it helps your body to metabolize glucose properly. Chronic hypertension is a form of heart disease. The risk of developing decreases when you exercise more frequently, because your blood pressure is lowered. Your heart also becomes stronger.
2. Exercise Improves Your Mood
Boosting the release of chemicals in the brain that alleviate stress, exercising vigorously is one of the best ways to relieve stress. Once you’ve completed your work out, you should feel more relaxed and happier than you did before you started. You’ll probably feel more confident too!
3. Lets You Enjoy Your Food More
When you work out on a regular basis, you burn more calories. As a result, you probably won’t need to worry as much about the food choices that you make. You can enjoy your food more, simply because you know that you are making the effort to burn off extra calories.
4. A Good Night’s Rest
If you are dreaming of a good night’s sleep but never achieving it, you might want to include some exercise in your life. A study by the National Sleep Foundation suggests that people who exercise regularly also sleep better.
5. Strengthens Your Immune System
Studies indicate that working out can help your immune system to become stronger. As a result, your body becomes better at fighting off viruses and other types of illness.
6. You’ll Enjoy Life More
People who exercise vigorously several times a week often have more energy to do things, so they can enjoy life more fully. Research suggests that people who work out, even moderately, increase their energy levels while decreasing the frequency of fatigue and bouts of depression.
7. Reduces the Risk of Breaking Bones
If you incorporate weight training into your work out, you can improve your bone strength.
8. Better Sex
Exercise strengthens muscles and helps to promote hormone production and sexual desire. You’ll feel more like having sex because you’ll be in better physical shape.
9. Improves Your Intake of Oxygen
The more you exercise, the stronger your lungs become as the muscles responsible for helping your lungs to perform at an optimal level are strengthened.
10. Enhance Your Cognitive Functioning
Studies have indicated that exercise can improve mental health and your memory, increasing your ability to perform cognitive tasks.
11. Boosts Creativity
Researchers have found that regular exercise is associated with improved divergent and convergent thinking, the two components of creative thinking. Divergent thinking is thinking of multiple solutions for one problem, while convergent thinking is thinking of one solution for a problem. A cardio work-out can boost creativity for up to 2 hours after you complete your workout. Creativity is boosted even more so when you exercise outdoors and interact with nature.
I could go on and on staring out from my window seat. Watching those passing clouds, those shining stars. And for the first time, I saw another passing plane while on flight. I never knew what’s the exact speed of an aircraft. But the moment I saw how quickly it zoomed past me, I kinda figured out how fast I’m traveling as compared to what we always see from feet(s) below. Maybe that’s the reason why I’ll always opt for the window seat if possible. While some people find it troublesome, I find that the beauty of Mother Nature makes it worth while. Such breathtaking sights never comes twice. No other window shot looks the same.
Apart from that, Seoul have been amazing. I don’t know if it’s because I could escape from reality for a bit, or if it’s because in know I wouldn’t be back for at least a couple of years. But I’m quite taken aback for all those people I’ve met during this trip. I never expect I would have meet that many people maybe. But it was a good opportunity. It’s amazing how the social media connects the world.
So many things happen I can’t put them in words, I’m just thankful for everything that happened. Really. Because I’ve never quite felt this way before.
