Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog
A while ago my friends asked me to write down all the lifestyle, health and wellness stuff that I often talk about. That's logical as it gives me more beach time. Here it is. Enjoy!
Instead of posting on fakebook, it's easier to post here what's on. Much good stuff is happening.
Cash is King29 September 2023
Why should we pay cash everywhere with banknotes instead of a card?
Say I have a £50 banknote in my pocket and I go to a restaurant and pay for dinner with it. The restaurant owner then uses the note to pay for the laundry. The laundry owner then uses the note to pay the plumber. The plumber will then use the note to pay for shopping.
After an unlimited number of payments, it will still remain a £50 value, which has fulfilled its purpose to everyone who used it for payment and the bank has jumped dry from every cash payment transaction made.
BUT if I go to a restaurant and pay digitally via Card, the bank fees for my payment transaction charged to the seller are 3%, so around £1.50 and a fee of £1.50 for each further payment transaction, for the owner of the laundry or payments of the owner of the laundry shop, or payments of the plumber etc.
Therefore, after 30 transactions, the initial £50 will exist at only £5, and the remaining £45 has become the property of the bank, thanks to all of the digital transactions and fees. Use it or lose it folks. Once cash is gone we won't get it back.

Team Work makes the Dream Work27th April 2023
An interesting side effect of the changing economy is that I'm now working much closer with people via social apps like Telegram and Jitsi. There is no need to travel to meetings, we just hook up when the need arrives. Colleagues who would not want to travel in the past, now show up online.
Health and Wellness Industry Boost24th April 2023
There's never been a better time to build a health and nutrition business than now. People have become increasingly aware that they can't rely on Big Pharma for good health. The flu pan(dem)ic of 2020 has given the health and wellness industry a massive boost. Now more than ever are people mindful of their health. Several science labs have published studies how important Vitamin D3 and Zinc are for balanced immune health, and this pushed up demand for nutritional supplements.
My Health and Lifestyle Story
As a kid, I wasn't exactly the picture of health. I grew up in a house full of smokers and my diet was heavy on meat and fat, light on nutrition.
But then, when I was 17, my very healthy uncle from Poland showed me the way to a vegetarian lifestyle. Things got better, but I still wasn't feeling my best. It's hard for vegetarians to get all the nutrients they need from just fruits and veggies.
But then, I discovered the magic of herbal nutrition supplements. Within just a couple months, I had lost weight, trimmed inches off my waistline, and all of my chronic health problems were cleared up. I felt like a whole new person!
Unleashing my Potential with Sports Nutrition
As a passionate swimmer and qualified lifeguard, I've always strived to push my limits and achieve new heights in the pool and the sea. But it wasn't until I embraced the power of sports nutrition that I truly unlocked my potential. The impact it has had on my performance, recovery, and overall well-being is simply astounding.
Before diving into the world of sports nutrition, I used to struggle with maintaining energy levels during my training sessions. I would often hit a wall, feeling fatigued and unable to give my best effort. However, with the guidance of a sports nutritionist, I learned how to fuel my body strategically. By incorporating the right balance of carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats into my diet, I now have a steady source of energy that keeps me going strong from start to finish.
The transformation in my endurance has been remarkable. With a focus on complex carbohydrates like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, my glycogen stores are consistently topped up, allowing me to power through those grueling laps without running on empty. I've noticed a significant improvement in my ability to sustain high-intensity efforts, helping me shave precious seconds off my personal best times.
Not only has sports nutrition enhanced my performance for lifeguard training and open water swimming, but it has also played a vital role in my recovery. By consuming a post-workout snack or meal that combines carbohydrates and proteins within the critical 30 to 60 minute window, I jumpstart the muscle repair process and shorten my recovery time. I feel less soreness and stiffness, allowing me to bounce back quicker and maintain a consistent training schedule.
Beyond the pool, sports nutrition has positively impacted my overall well-being. The emphasis on whole, nutrient-dense foods has strengthened my immune system, helping me ward off illnesses and stay healthy throughout the season. I feel more energized, focused, and mentally sharp, enabling me to perform at my best both in and out of the water.
Team Work Makes the Dream Work
Perhaps the most significant aspect of sports nutrition is the personalized approach it offers. Working with a nutrition team who specialize in sports nutrition has been invaluable. They take into account my individual needs, training load, and goals, tailoring my nutrition plan to optimize my performance. Their expertise and guidance have been instrumental in fine-tuning my diet and ensuring I'm getting the right nutrients at the right times.
If you're a swimmer seeking to maximize your potential,
I can't recommend sports nutrition enough.
It's the missing piece of the puzzle that has taken my performance to new heights.
The impact on my energy levels, endurance, recovery, and overall well-being has been nothing short of transformative.
Embrace the power of sports nutrition, and watch as you soar through the water with newfound strength, speed, and confidence!
