Musings Episode 65: Sleep and Success

Sleep is one of those things people either get too much or too little of. I’ve always been in the group of the latter. Never been one to oversleep, makes me feel unproductive.

But sleep, is actually one of many critical keys to success.

Oddly enough there is more and more information out there about how employers these days don’t necessarily understand that and have a tendency to push their employees to the limits.

Yet what they don’t realize is right in front of them – adequate rest leads to more productivity. It’s the same when people take breaks more often during work – they can function better…and considering the human brain really only concentrates on something for no more than 15-17 minutes, this makes perfect sense.

Adequate sleep doesn’t just help you focus better though – it also keeps your weight down, among many other things. Throughout the day, a toxin builds up in your spine, and while you rest, and only while you rest, does it release. So lack of rest causes the body to stress, which puts on weight.

Getting enough rest allows better mental and physical alertness, a heightened sense of awareness, sharper thinking, and a better mood.

Not everyone is depressed because of things that go on in their life – but because of overworking and under resting. It’s so elementary.

But alas, with a simple solution comes a simple reason – exploitation of a vulnerability. What’s lacking in some companies today is consideration – consideration of your fellow man – in his work, his home life, and his own personal well being.

Get enough rest and you’ll start to see small but important things change in your life for the better. Take care of yourself first, and it becomes much easier to take care of everything else.

On the flip side, oversleep can be a negative too. Going into too much of a dormant state can cause you to be lethargic and become lazy.

10 hours is the limit for me – and that’s only if I’m really tired. Other than that a good 8 hours works out fine.

In fitness, it’s ESPECIALLY important to get adequate rest so the muscles you’ve been working can heal up at a much faster rate – you don’t grow in the gym, but instead while you’re asleep.

Too much rest though and just eating will cause you to store fat.

So really all in all it boils down to moderation. Do anything in moderation and you’ll be alright. Eat in moderation, sleep, work, etc…just make sure you don’t overdo it – or neglect it.

As always…

Stay awesome.

For The Weekenders: Skydiving Sandwiches, Lobster Shacks, Late Night Wings…

Lately fitness wise I’ve been getting ready for a bulking season (lost a LOT of gains due to stress) – I’m naturally slender and have always been athletic, so bulking during summer season doesn’t really hurt me in the slightest.

So all this week it’s been a grand tour of the pure deliciousness one would call food…and my God has it been delicious. When you really think about it, eating food is an actual chore, just like bathing daily or brushing your teeth – but mother of God did nature make it an enjoyable one. Enjoy.

For The Weekenders: Skydiving Sandwiches, Lobster Shacks, Late Night Wings…

Just imagine for a second if eating had to be done without any enjoyment? No flavors? No aromas? It’d be pretty….boring. But alas, this is exactly why it wasn’t made so – three times a day of that would make life hellish.

So just a heads up to everyone – although fitness is discussed quite a lot over at the official site, don’t forget that eating clean doesn’t mean you have to eat bland – and on cheat days, don’t ever forget to ENJOY the food you eat to maximum extent.

Let’s start with North River Lobster Co. – in short, these guys are AWESOME. Intended to be an escape from Manhattan’s hustle and bustle, North River Lobster Company accomplishes exactly that. In saying that, this isn’t your typical sit down and order restaurant. The food is beyond comparison.

For starters, it’s on a boat – scratch that, it is a boat. A boat that offers up little adventures by sailing around the Hudson. How many lobster shacks do you know that offer up that?

Secondly, the menus are dotted around the boat, on the pier, and online (aaaaand click here.)…

….once you’ve decided on what to eat, you hit up the bartender and order. Like in tennis, a little runner delivers your food and presto – time to eat. While keeping their menu simple and to the point, lobster isn’t the only thing they offer – but I do recommend checking out their lobster roll.

Or if you’re a big eater and want seconds, grab a North River Burger, Grilled Chicken Sandwich (don’t let the plain name fool you), or Shrimp Po Boy. Wash it all down with one of their many alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) drinks and top it off with a slice of New York Style Cheesecake (obviously).

But let’s say you’re really not a seafood fan in general or just want something a little more home-style – then I’d say if you’re in Melbourne and up to party, take a gamble and check out Jafflechute’s party happening on July 19th of this year (2014).

I know, you’re probably wondering – what the f*ck is a Jafflechute? Well, if you got the awesome opportunity to try them while they were in New York, a Jafflechute, my friend, is (literally) a heaven-sent grilled cheese (with some possible suprises thrown in) sandwich delivered via parachute to an appointed location.

So here’s the formal description of how it works:

You order up a sandwich (with a twist) of your choice, pay them via PayPal, then like a Mission Impossible agent they give you a location and a time. Wherever X marks the spot is where your lunch will be delivered (somehow, this reminds me of anvils and Looney Tunes.).

So you stand there, gazing into the blue sky (jafflechutes are only delivered during good weather – naturally) until finally you see it – a neatly packaged, carefully thought out little parachute heading your way –

all it takes now is a bit of hand-eye coordination on your part to allow the gently falling parcel of food to fall into your palms. Look up, smile, wave, and carry on about your day as innocent bystanders look on in awe wondering what on earth just happened – and how it can happen to them.

Seriously.

If you’re in Australia go to the party.

Book your tickets.

Now.

It’s alright though if you’re not the traveling type – or you just can’t be bothered with a long ass flight. Maybe you just want a great place to go after drinks with friends.

For more drinks with more friends.

And food. Obviously food. You’ve gotta sober up at some point.

Jify’s has got you covered.

This is the go to place not just for late night, but all things food related. A Caribbean themed restaurant with a Caribbean roots founder, you can only expect boundless explosion after explosion of flavour from this place.

For late night eats and drinks, order up some Jerk Wings and Plantain Chips with Mango Guacamole, then pair it with an Old Friend – an Old Friend being a drink, comprising of Cachaça, Ginger, Tamarind Extract, and Angostura Bitters.

(Or, if you’ve still got that “old friend’s” number, don’t hesitate to call him or her, either…*wink*)

If that doesn’t suit your fancy they’ve got plenty of other options as well, so don’t sweat it.

I’d also highly recommend you go there for the music as well, over at Cameo Gallery conveniently placed right behind the place. Tickets are priced reasonably and offer up a great selection, like “The Future Scares Me,” “TUTU,” and Tamara Davidson tonight at 8:00 P.M.

If that’s not enough to get you to come check out Jify’s I don’t know what is (also, you’re missing out on a very epic part of life).

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 64: Writer’s Burnout…

First off – hope everyone had an absolutely epic weekend.

Second of all – I know it’s been a minute since you’ve all seen me on here.

To be honest, I encountered a pretty bad case of writer’s burnout…there’s really no excuse for it – all that can be said is I’ve finally made it back onto the old writing chair and hopefully won’t be falling off it again. So hopefully this post will be just as refreshing for you as it has been for me…

Musings Episode 64: Writer’s Burnout…

But wait – then this got me curious – who else has gotten writer’s burnout? Or even the more commonly known writer’s block? How have you dealt with it? How long did it last?

Keep in mind, writer’s burnout is completely different from writer’s block. I’ll be going further into detail about it tomorrow on Make it Mondays – but for now there is a really great, brief post I came across from Stella Tarakson that sums it up quite easily (also, thanks to Drew Coffman for the awesome photo).

I know this sounds rather cliché, the whole conflicted writer bit, but it does have some validity to it. Writing is all about energy and a clear head.

When a person doesn’t have energy, not a single word can be plucked from their brain…

…and when a person has too much going on in their mind and can’t focus – filtering a simple paragraph out of all the “noise” can be like trying to direct traffic with no street lights in L.A.

Whenever I write, my surroundings have got to be serene, even if I’m writing about some pretty exciting stuff. For more active environments, I’d much rather make a vlog post of it or a simple spitball audio session.

There’s a sort of structure, even to the most casual writing, you know? You may not try and label it – heck, I know I don’t like to label it – but there is something about writing that in order to do it, in order to get your thoughts on paper, each and every writer has to have their own way or “style” of doing just that.

Writing for me comes down to getting as close to how I would usually talk in person – aka write like you talk. I think it’s the best form of writing as you can really connect with your reader, when all the formalities have been stripped down.

my aim is to put down on paper what i see ernest hemingway quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout, Rego's Life Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout, Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout Rego's Life, Rego's Life, writer's burnout, writer's block, writers block, overcoming writer's block

It’s like it breaks out of the typical mold most writing schools say you must adhere to – and for a moment, even if it’s a short one, you’re vulnerable…your words are vulnerable. Naked. Raw. Unfiltered.

You can talk about whatever it is you can think about, and say yay or nay as to whether or not you want to write about what everyone else is talking about.

Complete control over your own train of thought.

That’s what I love about writing. That’s why I do it. It allows you to educate, excite, inform, project, debate, and ponder over so much more than if you were to have a typical conversation with someone…because the thing with conversation is, usually it entails one party talking while the other is just waiting to speak as well.

Rarely is it that one actually listens in conversation…but when you listen, that’s when you connect with that person.

I write, because while I’m the observer in many sit-down social settings, it (writing) gives me the opportunity to pour my every thought out, uninterrupted.

there is nothing to writing all you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed, ernest hemingway quotes, rego's life quotes, Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout, Rego's Life Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout, Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout Rego's Life, Rego's Life, writer's burnout, writer's block, writers block, overcoming writer's block

…and it’s one of the most freeing things next to working out for me.

So now that I’m feeling back up to snuff to “bleed on paper” again, Rego’s Life will be back on schedule once more…and don’t forget to look out for tomorrow’s Make it Mondays, where you’ll see some pretty great tips as to how I personally deal with writer’s burnout and a great way you can, too. Until then…

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 63: Time…

…..I know ironic title right? Albeit this one being up late, I wanted to share some thoughts about time.

In the past it’s always been stressed how important time is, how time is money and money is time, how time is more than just time but an investment, and so on.

But time is also a sort of one way road – or more accurately string of bridges. What do I mean? Well…read on.

Musings Episode 63: Time…

Musings Episode 63 Time, Rego's Life Musings Episode 63 Time, Musings Episode 63 Time Rego's Life, Rego's Life, life, thought, time, emotion, bridges burned, don't waste time, invest your time wisely, steve jobs quotes, time quotes, life quotes

The reason I say time is a “string” of bridges is due to the fact that every decision or action we take in life is something that takes up time – and once it’s done there’s really no looking back.

This is why you always hear those little classic quotes that encourage you to leave the “what ifs” out of your life, and are constantly reminding you that without change you’ll never grow.

Change is intrinsically linked with time – anything or anyone that changes invests a certain amount of time in doing so – it all takes time and a willingness to do so.

Scars heal over time or are forgotten.

Health is restored (or changes) over time and is improved.

Success happens over time and inevitably changes or improves lifestyle.

Every single thing you do is linked with time.

Each decision you make alters something in the future.

I wouldn’t say there’s no going back, but as far as human intelligence is concerned there’s also no reversal of time – no “turning back the clock.” Or at least humans haven’t figured out how to yet…

Hang on a minute – that last bit sounded really “definite” and realistic – let me clarify.

your time is limited steve jobs quote rego's life quotes time quotes, Musings Episode 63 Time, Rego's Life Musings Episode 63 Time, Musings Episode 63 Time Rego's Life, Rego's Life, life, thought, time, emotion, bridges burned, don't waste time, invest your time wisely, steve jobs quotes, time quotes, life quotes

In other words, there are decisions people make and characters people mold that can always be changed or improved, but as far as undoing certain things the change that was already done will always be there as a memory – or a lesson.

This can range from sticking together with family, changing careers, getting married, or joining a sport.

Even if we undo those said changes, as far as time is concerned they happened and are now imprinted as a memory – some forget, some always remember.

But like an arrow released from the bend of the bow, time is spent the same way – once it’s gone, it’s gone. Like a bridge burnt immediately after you’ve driven over it, there’s no getting it back.

You can rebuild the bridge.

You can reload the bow.

But the original bridge burnt or the first arrow spent can’t be taken back.

This is why throughout my life I’ve always been considerably careful about who I associate with, what actions I take, what memories I make…basically how I invest my time.

Even writing everyday for this blog and the official site is an investment of time that’s made.

when i give you my time i'm giving you a portion of my life that i will never get back so don't waste it rego's life quotes time quotes, Musings Episode 63 Time, Rego's Life Musings Episode 63 Time, Musings Episode 63 Time Rego's Life, Rego's Life, life, thought, time, emotion, bridges burned, don't waste time, invest your time wisely, steve jobs quotes, time quotes, life quotes

…it’s quite healthy to do so, being careful is. Not pessimistic – just careful. Don’t misinterpret what you just read as choosing to live in a sheltered environment – but the same way eating healthy and exercising lead to a great looking, healthy body, is the same way being in healthy environments, associating with positive (and like minded) people who have your best interest at heart, and doing what you really want to do in life, increases your positive yield on time spent.

So just remember, your time is precious – and just like how there are some stores that you can’t get a refund at after spending money, so goes the same with your time…ergo choose how you “spend” it wisely.

Just a little inspiration to kick off your week. 😉

As always…

Stay awesome.

For The Weekenders: Strange Beds, Artistic Camping, Sustainable Surf…

Hmm…haven’t done a For The Weekenders like this in a while. Every now and then it’s always a good thing to get some travel under your belt. Cool thing about travel is you get to check out a lot of unique and fun places, making more memories and moments of “remember that time when…

So let’s start globetrotting.

For The Weekenders: Strange Beds, Artistic Camping, Sustainable Surf…

Summer’s like…here. And if there’s one thing I know about summer, it’s better when you make the best of it. Few factors involved in order to do that though…good people, good places, good food.

But most importantly, a good night’s sleep is imperative on a trip….to be fair though, that can get pretty boring.

Where you sleep and what kind of place you lodge at should be equally as interesting as the place you’ll be exploring. The guys over at The Manta Resort in Tanzania understand this – and have gone above and beyond the call of duty in delivering.

Seriously. Next time instead of telling your friends about how comfortable the beds were at the hotel, now you can tell them that “oh, yeah the beds were comfortable and all, but was REALLY cool was seeing fish swim past us while we slept.”

Yeah. It’s that kind of resort.

The kind of resort that offers a two level “room” all to yourself/you and your S.O. – it’s the kind of place you go when you get tired of the typical resort style places – you know the type – A/C, sterile hallways, marble floors, concrete, doors….all the boring “man made” constructed stuff.

Not saying that your accommodation isn’t man made – but it’s all about the way it’s made. The resort calls it a “private floating island” and really, it is. Set out in the ocean with no one (too) near by, it’s a perfect, private little spot when you want to experience more than just swiping a key card and heading into your room while awkwardly greeting your next door neighbors…or hearing their awkward, horrible sex.

…and this guy’s just here for the photos. For the resort that is. Obviously. Duh.

Besides the pretty epic lodging, The Manta Resort also has some pretty cool (and of course the usual conventional) activities…like diving (or learning how to dive if you don’t know how to), and unique excursions, including hanging with the locals at Spice Island, checking out birds (not the human kind) in the Ngezi rain forest, or just sitting back, sailing, and chilling out with local fisherman.

What you do is up to you with an absolute plethora of choices…there’s really no way you’ll ever have time to be bored.

But let’s say you have some irrational fear of water, or maybe you can’t swim…or maybe you’re just more of a different kind of outdoorsy person. Maybe you just want something way more exciting and less laid back.

Like camping.

Hey – don’t give me that face. While I usually treat camping with great disdain, a little place in Amsterdam’s got me thinking about it in a completely different light.

Like…completely. Forget the canvas tents and stakes, classic camping just got a call from Urban Campsite Amsterdam – and was just informed it’s time to step up its game.

This is for those of us who always like the thought of camping – great outdoors, fresh air, fishing – but just couldn’t get used to the concept of sleeping on the ground.

No, instead these guys focus on integrating modern art into nature – while minimizing disturbing nature as much as possible. Think of it like an art gallery in the woods.

Yeah…way cooler.

Basically, a group of of architects and designers get together, brainstorm, and come up with some pretty awesome stuff to show off with the surroundings of mother nature – things so cool you can’t help but fill half a 2 gig SD card and make prints out of those captured moments.

So the next time your friends say “let’s go camping,” instead of ruining a cool chance at hanging out with even cooler friends, suggest hopping a plane over to The Netherlands instead. 😉

But let’s say instead of just co-existing with mother nature, you really wanna become one with her. Well, not to get right back around to sun and sand, but for anyone wanting to really connect, this next place is a must go to spot for any surfer.

The best part is, its main focus is sustainability – but go before it’s too late.

While a resort is being built in the Maldives, a pretty epic sustainable surfing project has been launched, where you have access to your own private yacht, and clean, uncrowded surf. Now I know what you’re thinking – “why on earth would I want to support a place where they’re taking land away from the locals to build a resort for a bunch or rude tourists to flock to?”

That’s the cool bit – even after the resort is built, the locals still have access to their own land – so the surf can be enjoyed by more than just whoever has the most money.

By keeping the surf uncrowded, that means less abuse to the beach and a better surfing experience…so you can actually enjoy your holiday compared to dealing with the same kind of crowded waves you could catch back home.

The lodging is ideal and ultra welcoming, with earth based tones and fantastic decor. A person can really feel like they’re taken care of in a place where an entirely new concept of the tourism industry is being born.

It’s the perfect spot for when you wanna get away from it all, enjoy a bit of luxury, yet still meet and hang with the locals. If every corporate resort company thought this way, there’d be a lot more business, and a lot more happy people…so good job Thanburudhoo Resort – keep up the good work.

As always…

Stay awesome. 😉
