How to Survive Inside

Some people assume that tips on how to survive outside in the wilderness are more important than tips on how to survive inside. I mean, we’ve engineered our indoor environment to be comfortable and optimized for survival and longevity. Right?

The reality is that our bodies and minds adjust very well outside and that engineered comfort is actually adversely affecting our health, wellness and longevity.

Which of the two following options sounds healthier and more productive to you?

  1. Sore back, foggy mind, constipated (yes, going there) and low energy.
  2. Comfort in the body, clear mind, effective elimination and steady energy.

Here’s another question. Which of the above options best describes how you feel on a day-to-day basis?

Option #1 is how I feel when I sit inside all day and option #2 is how I feel when I move and balance inside/outside time. I’ve come to learn that I function much better when I spend time outside.

Having said that, there are good reasons to spend time inside that include:

  1. Personal and professional development workshops.
  2. Conferences, symposiums and events.
  3. Jobs/professions that require spending a large majority of time inside.

I recently attended a marketing and sales development event run by my business coach at a conference center in Ottawa, Ontario.

That’s where I filmed this vlog with tips on how to survive inside, because I was feeling more like option #1 than #2.

I welcome your comments and emails. Thanks for sharing your tips on how to stay healthy and optimize performance when you’re inside.
