Summer Days: Generational Health

I haven’t published on topics outside of bitcoin for a while; however, in the background, I look for opportunities to improve my health and overall lifestyle.

Basic principles and habits that I can implement that can improve my physical or mental health and get me closer to my personal and professional goals.

“Generational Wealth & Generational Health” is a goal worth striving for. We often prioritize amassing financial wealth and sacrifice our health to achieve those means. Yet, what’s the point of accumulating wealth if we’re not healthy enough to enjoy it ourselves and with our family and friends?

Generational Health is a concept aligned with the idea of low time preference, i.e., making decisions to maximize and optimize long-term results.

Adopting a generational health mindset means making decisions that will increase your quality of life on a day-to-day basis by improving your physical or mental health, hopefully leading to a long and healthy life.

It’s a holistic approach to living a healthy life rooted in nature and ancestral principles. The three areas I focus on are nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle.

Today’s post is a brief yet valuable guide to making the most of your summer and living a healthier life. The tips provided are simple and easy to implement, ensuring that you can start making positive changes right away.

Summer is my favorite season. It’s a reward to be cherished after a cold, cloudy, and rainy winter in the Northeastern United States.

Much of my time is spent at the New Jersey shore with my family and friends. The long days, the warm weather, the ocean breeze, and the grill outs can’t be beaten.

The summer solstice was last week which had me reflecting on how I can make the most of my summer, as it always seems to come and go too quickly.

So, with that, I wanted to share three principles I’ve been using to make the most of these long summer days and improve my health.

1. Wake Up Early: The sunrise is at ~ 5:30 a.m. I get it; we’re not all morning people, but make it easier to wake up naturally, i.e., leave your blinds open, reduce artificial light at night, and don’t snooze your alarm. An early start to the day can help you accomplish more and align your body with the cycles of the day (i.e., circadian rhythm), which can help improve sleep quality and much more.

2. Get Sun Early: After I wake up and brush my teeth, I get a glass of water and immediately get outside. Getting the early morning sunlight regulates your circadian rhythm and signals your body that it’s time to wake up. The lower UV index in the morning is also a great way to get sun exposure and build a healthy tan for the summer.

3. Move Your Body Early: I do this alongside getting sun early. Take advantage of the warm weather and sunshine and start your day with physical activity. It can be a walk, run, swim, or whatever you prefer to do. Moving in the morning sets the tone for the day and has excellent health benefits. This doesn’t mean you have to go out for a 5-mile run; even if you get out for a mile walk, it’s incredibly beneficial.

I didn’t promise any earth-shattering revelations… the path to generational health is often a series of incremental improvements. I hope these tips are useful and help you make the most of the summer. By making simple changes, you can pave the way for a healthier future for you and your loved ones.

I mostly write about bitcoin and other financial topics, so I would love to know if generational health is an area of interest to you.

Please leave a “like” and vote in the poll below yes/no, I would greatly appreciate your feedback.

What are some ‘Generational Health’ principles that you’ve implemented recently? Leave a comment, I would love to hear from you.

I’ve been interested in the topic of light i.e. sunlight, artificial light, and circadian rhythm more recently, if you are too, I would highly recommend these two newsletters by Tristan Scott M.S. and Zaid K. Dahhaj.
