When I prepared myself for the college diploma decades ago I probably bought my first self-help book. Slowly I became nervous and more nervous. So I decided to buy a book on how to prepare for tests. When I held the book in my hands my chin dropped. Instead of reading about learning tips and how to remember contents faster I read about sleeping and eating first. In the second half of the book the authors wrote about how to approach texts and other topics.

Nutrition plays a major part when exercising and also when learning anything. Sportive people need to stay slim, but they also need food that helps them to build muscles i.e.. Our tissues are made of protein.

One must learn to cook. It’s cool to eat out in restaurants. Yet one shouldn’t forget that restaurants want to make profit at the first place.

Eating well, that is eating my own meals, will support my urdhva dhanurasana project.
(Perhaps I’ll also take some Magnesium pills. :) )
