HOW TO DRINK ALCOHOL AND STILL BE HEALTHY

DRINK ANYONE ?

I know some of you read that headline and got all kinds of excited.

“Justin, so you’re telling me I can drink alcohol and still be healthy?”

Well, sorta.

I get quite a few emails asking if it’s ok to drink alcohol on the Paleo diet, or if it’s ok to have a few drinks on the weekends and still be able to get into shape.

Well today is the day you and I are going to break it down like Charlie Brown and discuss how to drink alcohol and still be healthy.

OFF BALANCE: GETTING BEYOND THE WORK-LIFE BALANCE MYTH

balance scaleNote: This is the second book in the Limitless Book Club.

How does one live better?

Whoa, that’s a pretty loaded question If I’ve ever heard one but one I’m sure you’ve asked yourself many times before. 

The last 13 years of my life have been spent learning and experimenting – a quest for living a better life.

  • Better health
  • Better relationships
  • Better work 
  • Better personal finances

I’m striving to become the best version of myself in all aspects and I know that’s why you’re here; you’re striving for the same thing. One area I really struggle to live better is with my work.

Raise your hand if you’re a borderline work-a-holic? Yeah, I’ve got two hands up too. I’m not borderline, I’m a full-fledged VIP member of the work-a-holic society.

It effects my energy, health, and personal relationships. It’s the one area of my life I’m spending the most time trying to improve.

In this search I came across a book called Off Balance: Getting Beyond the Work-Life Balance Myth to Personal and Professional Satisfaction by Matthew Kelly. It’s helped me so much that I decided to add it to the Limitless Book Club (aka “the LBC,” whaddup Snoop!).

It’s made me realize that it’s not really balance in my life that I’m after but something else.

YOUR LIFE DOESN’T NEED A BUCKET LIST: CREATE A QUEST INSTEAD

Community Bucket List
A few years ago I crossed something off of my bucket list and took a trip around the world that sent me to Japan, India, Thailand, Egypt, and France. It was a trip that would change me forever.

A weeks ago my roommate left on a similar trip. He’s starting in Indonesia and will be gallivanting around in South East Asia for a bit before heading to New Zealand and then back state side. See you in NZ buddy.

His trip has me reminiscing a lot about the trip that I took and the LimitlessLIST that I created for myself when I got back. Looking back at the list I realized I’ve really gotten away from it. 

So what happened? 

Tossing aside the excuses of not enough time and money – those are easier to get around than you’d think – why exactly did I stop pursuing the things on my list? The mistake I made when creating this list is just that. I created a friggin to-do list. When you create a “list” you’re essentially taking a “check off boxes” approach to life.

I don’t need anymore lists and neither do you. We’ve got enough of them already.

  • Grocery lists
  • To-do lists
  • School lists
  • Work lists
  • Don’t forget this list
  • A list to remind us to make some more lists

Today’s article is all about creating a better LimitlessLIST quest, how you can create your own, and how to make sure you’ll accomplish the items you have on it.

THE LIMITLESS BOOK CLUB: TALENT IS OVERRATED

Book-Color Histogram.

A few years ago a I realized that I had racked up a pretty extensive Amazon wish list of books to read. Sadly, I just kept adding to it without actually making a dent in the damn thing.

Shortly after I set a goal to read 52 books in 52 weeks. There was no real rhyme or reason to the madness. I just wanted to start chipping away at that wish and to start reading more in general.

If you’re interested in how you can read 52 books in 52 weeks you can check out my write up over at Life Hack. You can also have a look at all of the books that were included in the 52 in 52 challenge here.

Reading as been such a huge influence on my life. It’s created an educational experience that has provided an insane amount of knowledge, resources, and at a fraction of the cost of what you would pay at a traditional school.

I love books so much that I want the world to know. I just want to shout it from the rooftops!

Ever since that challenge starting a Limitless book club was always on my mind. A simple place where I could tell you about what I’m reading and you could do the same for me.

I don’t plan on writing about every book I read but just some of my favorites, those that have influenced my life, and ones that might be beneficial for you in your own development.

In the club I’ll be giving a quick overview of each book and how you can apply it to your life.

Feel free to reach out and let me know if you plan on reading any of the books, have already read them, or would like to recommend a few that you think would be enjoyable not only to me but to others in the L365 community.

Enough of my rambling. On with it!
