Most people slow down as they age — I’ve done the opposite — I never stop moving, creating, and enjoying life.
There’s a trick to achieving this.
Unfortunately, not everyone can, purely because they don’t know and don’t try to learn about life and how theirs could be in a much better flow.
To illustrate this in more detail, I’ll show you what I do in a day or two, supported with photos and videos.
Then I’ll tell you how I become fitter, healthier, more successful, save time, and feel great too.
Yesterday’s Strength Training
I strength-trained my body with a 15-minute micro-workout, which made me feel great and is all I need to keep me lean and strong.
I worked out in a beautiful resort garden, in the grass and nature — then I went for a swim and sunned myself for 30 minutes. A great sensation that brought on happiness!
Why hustle around a smelly, loud gym packed with show-offs taking pics flexing muscles, and wasting time?
Please check out the video where I demonstrate this quick but powerful workout set.
I’ll strength train 3 times per week maximum, using my body as my gym and always outdoors in nature.
The rest of the days, I only walk and swim.
Today’s Nature Trip
I rode the motorbike for 2 hours up to the top of Kulen Mountain, in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia.
After trekking the waterfall I went down and up steep stairs, swam in the cool spring water, relaxed in the mellow afternoon sun, meditated, and practiced deep breathing with positive affirmations to close the session.
It was wonderfully mind-calming and uplifting,
The drive up was 2 hours, I stayed 2 hours and drove home in another 2 hours. That sounds like a lot of driving for a 2-hour chillout session, but it was fine.
The drive along the countryside and up the steep mountain road was stunning and fun — it was pure pleasure and adventure all day long.
Please check out my video where I explain WHY it’s so vital to move and spend time in nature:
1 — I work less and I’m not sorry about that.
The result: I work smart and produce far better content this way.
2 — I train far less than I used to. Less but right is best!
I’ve figured out the most effective and efficient way to move my body every week – this is how:
• Walking 6 miles daily and swimming as often as possible
• 3 x 15-minute micro-workout sessions
• 1 Sprint session in the pool or up steep steps
This is more than I need to keep me muscular, lean, fit, and in happy spirits.
I do it all in nature — that’s the trick!
3 — I sleep more, which is great.
I used to not care much about sleep.
I’d work and party late, get up feeling, terrible, and continue playing the same senseless game.
That’s no way to live.
So, I changed my ways, stopped the short unhealthy sleeping pattern, and went for longer, enjoyable sleep that helps your body and mind recover and do better the next day.
That’s it in a nutshell, and as you can see, it’s quite simple, if you keep it up.

1 – Step away from “The Hotel California” trap, repeating the same mistakes over and over.
2 – Escape the rat race, slow life down, and enjoy it more.
You only live once — it’s not all that long in the scope of things.
The trees I saw at the waterfall are probably more than 1000 years old, I don’t know.
What I do know is that you and I can only make it to 100 — if we are lucky and live a healthy lifestyle with real food, plenty of exercise, nature time, and good sleep.`
Sleep and rest more, work less, but deep and productively, and for heaven’s sake, exercise less, but right — stop wasting half your life in a blinking gym!
It is not worth it, and not the way to live a great life. Mark my words — eventually, you will agree with me if you don’t already.
