Let’s put some focus on Asia why? well because I have spent over 10 years on and off living, working, starting a business here in Asia.
This differs incredibly from what I come to know and valued Lifestyle and maintaining a serious attitude to personal health and fitness was never an easy task in the earlier days.
This was partly because of the work regime, long hours and early starts with weekend’s almost non existent.
Many travellers fall into the usual eating drinking and chilling out Habits when abroad whenever they can, excuses kick in and time becomes the perfect excuse not to maintain or engaged in sports in regular way.

REASSESS : our values and what needs a change
MOTIVATE : set measures and steps to upgrade our present thinking
MAKE TIME : allow daily period to execute activities no matter how small
IMPOSE : A STRICTER HEALTH BEARING EXERCISE AND EATING REGIME AND STICK WITH IT.
Look at our schedule, disseminate, understand and make necessary adjustments, especially as we are not in our native country in this case scenario.

So living in a country like Asia as an Ex-Pat where you have a hoard of choices for Fruits, natural ingredients, vegetables, nuts and fish, meat and dairy products be it a goat, sheep or cow milk for example, we can consume this stuff until the cows come home and cheaply in most cases.
What I Found is that cooking at home works if you have a comfortable area and kitchen, when hot cooking is not as attractive and it’s easy to deviate to outdoor fast foods and restaurants.

We Are drawn to the Nasty’s, Quick Snacks and fast foods. and sugary stuff. The taste and promise of a mouth watering rush of pleasure is to much to bear, the compunction to do ‘MUST HAVE ONE OR MAYBE TWO’ now!
DAMN, JUST WHEN WE HAD IT ALL UNDER CONTROL!

Earlier I spoke of Age not being a major Factor or difference to being healthy and well-being, I stand by that Being that I am 50+ and still kicking with zest is proof of that.
If I was to compare now to 10 years ago, based on my well-being I say categorically, my awareness and sense has multiplied and heightened, my understanding of what needs to be done is distinctly clearer,
Put this down to taking the time-out to appreciate my general strengths and weaknesses, to channel efforts and resources better, collectively use what is natural and organic to move forward and make tweaks as I go along easier, does his ring any bells in your head?

Irregular Patterns in Maintaining Health
I believe Exercising is probably the hardest thing to maintain due to heat, or the change of country elements and lifestyles. Working Commitments in Asia is tough as long hours seem to be a normal, and expected without question especially in china.
Leaving at normal work hours is taboo so many hang around until finally groups appear and safety in numbers make things happen, its a protect my ass situation and not to appear singular in decision.
Many on being asked, do they have spare time during the week, will say no, hence Health and Wellness bites the dust.

If you are working abroad, planning this is a must or things can easily go downhill rapidly.
Time is not on your side, everything else seems to take priority, what to do about this then? Health, wealth and position or power, doesn’t always work well together, so sacrifices are a constant battle, the first to fail is personal time, social space, family quality time and finally health.
If we knew all the answers to this modern living and fast pace environment, then we would manage our lifestyle more effectively
but as it is, we can only work with what we have, ourselves and our tight schedules, once we have a clearer idea of this we can make our health, well being and lifestyle more meaningful. But let us not forget simple eating relaxation methods,
Quality food, walking, fresh air, some space for yourself when possible, time with family or relatives at every given chance.
Communication socially and outdoors, short trips locally, fishing, BBQ and most of all USING local produce to give you the best for body and energy, shakes, blended drinks, fish and white meat, pulses. Grain, rye and wheat.
These sources are plentiful and low cost in Asia.
Cultural Stories From China! The Romaunt of Ne zha
Today I am going to share a well-known Romaunt in China, The Romaunt of Ne zha.
Ne zha was born by an unusual way, his mother had been pregnant for three years and six
months before his birth.
It is said bright and colourful lights shot around the house, a flesh ball born suddenly them change to a kid. Soon after birth he
could speak, walk and has huge strength! It shocked his family and neighbours.
his superpower is predestined to heaven. Nvwa (the female god in Chinese myth
who create humankind) had already chosen him to withstand evil strength. An
immortal called Tai yi became his teacher, gave him two magic weapons:
A cercle’ and red silk. He is outgoing, lively, friendly, active and has the advantage
and disadvantage of a common child.
As he was growing up, he became more and more
naughty makes so many troubles so that his father treats him strict with anger.
His father is a general who thinks him a monster, although his mother is fond of
him very much.
When he was
7 years old, an arid year, the farmland yielded no crops, many people starved
to death. But the eastern sea god (who is manage rain) didn’t care about people
life, and the sea god’s son even plunders many kids from the seaside. Nezha
discovered sea god son’s evil deeds. He was so angry that fight with sea god’s
son, sea god’s son die.
this isn’t the end. This thing causes a huge disaster.
sea god found his son was beaten to death, he organised north sea god, western sea
god and south sea god together they make a long storm as revenge. Tsunami
covered ground, many people drowned.
How will Na
zha face this disaster?
