  1. You could also try the Sam Harris app (https://wakingup.com/) but suspect you might have similar response as the Headspace one. To his credit, Sam harris has a deal where if you really can't afford it, you can email him and he will give it to you for free (both can be found on torrent sites as well). I have done a bit of meditation over the years but never been able to stick with it. I do find other activities that force you to switch of your mind have a similar effect ie. BJJ or reading or anything where you end up losing track of time. Meditation is unique in the way it encourages you to deal with the thoughts/stresses in the back of your mind. The guided meditations are particularly good when you are starting out and maybe need some encouragement but you'll find as you get to the more 'advanced' Headspace ones they contain more and more silence. Once you have the basics down, you only really need silence (or sounds) and some time to continue.
  2. Wow - amazing post! Sorry my original question wasn't very clear, I originally meant to ask more about what you chose to grow and how to do it but the response I got was way more interesting. Thanks.
  3. Thanks - yeah i read all that. It's still one hell of a change in direction without some sort of muse. Are you just deciding what to do based off what you see online and what you learn from speaking to your neighbours?
  4. @misteravenThis is cool - what gave you the inspiration for this? I feel like everyone in here would enjoy Escape to The River Cottage, if you haven't seen it already: A docu-drama following a city-dweller who tries to simplify his life by moving to a smallholding (like a acreage) in England. The series combines educational material of him building shelters, raising crops and animals, mending his belongings and such, with humorous interactions with his eccentric neighbors. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0331740/

    Hahaha shout out the dude with the red backpack.
  6. Hang in there buddy. Excuse my ignorance but what is preventing you from leaving? I don't really have anything on this level but I couldn't walk for 6 months due to injury. I was at home so it was relatively luxurious but soon enough I was back to being able to stand up and eventually resume normal life. Despite the damage, it will give you a new lease and perspective on the fragility of life and how to enjoy it once you are back.
  7. It would be awesome to see the oontz mature in this sort of direction. For all the misfits out there trying to get a grip on their future before it comes and goes.
  8. Out of interest, how many hours per week do people train? I average somewhere between 2-6 at the moment.
  9. David Choe is a massively underrated human being.
  10. For real, I didn’t word that very well. Just interesting coming from someone whose done so much cool stuff.
  11. Interesting. Makes sense in terms of growing a business... but do you think that necessary makes it 'better'?

  14. Graffiti artists paints on wall. Wall owner paints over it. Graffiti artists sue for $6.8m? Really???
  15. I'd be surprised if you can't find somewhere that does no-gi, with open mat and an instructor who is happy to teach whatever it is people need work on or are struggling with that week. I think belts (whether you're physically wearing it or not) are sort of a necessary indicator of skill level when rolling with people you don't know. I've been training 18months and am still a whitebelt and am thankful every time I roll with an upper belt that they know to take pity.
