Hello! I’m Brian and I’ve decided to open up a blog where I could share my experiences in day-to-day life, and especially those related to my hobbies. I earn my living by being an investment consultant for a major corporation, and that’s something that eats a lot of my time and nerves. This is why I want to avoid bringing any work-related subjects into discussion and try and refer to the small joys, hobbies and activities that help me keep my life on track.
Spending the day stuck on a chair, with my spine arched and my eyes in constant monitor-induced stress makes me experience the need to compensate in a dynamic manner, so I’ve been a constant client of my neighborhood gym for the past two years. I know most men go to the gym in an attempt to amp-up their muscles, but I love it simply because it is an excellent means to relieve the stress that build-up over a day at the office.
Although I’m thorough with my program, I try not to allow myself to fall into a robotic routine that I’m sure, in time, will become rather tiresome and useless. So I’ve been searching for alternative ways to keep my body occupied and my spirit free, and I’ve found that there is more to martial arts than the excitement of defending invisible adversaries with cool, Bruce Lee moves.
I’ve been taking up introductory classes and I’ve been doing a lot of research on the different styles and their impact on developing flexibility and reflexes, and the more I read the more determined I feel to take on more serious training.
However, as I told you before, I have a really busy schedule, and between long hours at work, my gym routine and these classes, I don’t really get to read as much as I would want. This is why I would really welcome any information, tips and recommendations from you guys. I strongly believe that sharing knowledge, even on a practical, utilitarian level helps us become better persons and broadens our view on the world and ourselves.
So feel free to comment, ask questions and speak your mind, and generally engage in any type of related discussion and I will do my best to be an active interlocutor. Until my next post, I wish you a good time and meaningful experiences!
