t̶h̶e̶ ̶i̶n̶t̶e̶r̶n̶e̶t̶ society and its lies (Searcher)

It’s a strange headline but after having spent so much time playing my role as searcher for this week, I was disappointed (but not surprised) to find so few pieces of gold when compared to all the undeniable crap that we inevitably stumble across on our daily lives.

It’s truly amazing. And I feel fortunate for becoming less ignorant on the matters of healthy eating. However, the truth is that the lies are more accessible than the truths. We are bombarded with magazines and innumerable websites riddled with tips and tricks on how to get that “sexy beach bod” or “your best body in 10 days!” But in almost all circumstances that I have previously noticed or researched today, these tips are just aimed at getting you to achieve what is considered the “ideal” look, the “skinny” look.

I’ve mentioned it in a previous post, but “your best body” is not achieved through starvation.
Personally, I believe the bodies in the best conditions are treated well. This means eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. It is not the person that sits around all day, eats terribly, doesn’t exercise, but due to genetics has been blessed with the “skinny gene.”

This week we discussed the sedentary lifestyle and I must admit that I am a sure member of that club. No doubt about it. However, after reading the article on the countless health benefits, I headed to the gym soon after. Does this motivation stick? Not really. We are always being thrown back and forth from this task to another errand and etc. that exercising just isn’t what we want. Watching TV is. And while personal hobbies are necessary for personal happiness, too much Netflix binge-watching is not the best thing in the world for you.

Some links with a couple pointers as to how to combat the laziness!
