Be Healthy Through Healthy Lifestyle
Being healthy is much easier to achieve in advance through a healthy lifestyle than by emergency changes when it is maybe too late. Unfortunately, many people don't look in advance beyond temporary pleasures, making this attitude the very reason why doing something for the future becomes so complicated. Being passive and ignorant is a sure way not just to illness but debt and addictions. Those who keep a balance between presence and future get benefits from both.
Be Healthy By Using Your Life Potential
Being healthy often correlates with a will to motivate yourself with intrinsic goals. People who become aware of themselves often feel their health and happiness closely interlinked. Healthy food and healthy movement give them clear thoughts and better life decisions as they see the causes and consequences of their own choices on their health and life potential in general. Not blindly following TV and Internet addictions, free time and energy for something creatively instead.
Be Healthy For Yourself and Planet
Being healthy benefits both yourself and the planet. Many healthy choices, like vegetarian food, cycling instead of driving, and a healthy lifestyle, are ecologic, responsible, and far-reaching regarding our ecological systems. Healthy people think logically and emotionally, become aware of their environment, and recognise how everything in life is interconnected.

If I had to prescribe two things to improve health and happiness in the world, it’s movement and play.
Technologic Infused Culture Of Anxiety, Disconnection And Destruction
In our western cultures, obsession with technology (primarily for entertainment) and consumption-oriented lifestyle push our time spent on electronic devices above any reasonable limit. Soon we will be constantly plugged in and online, scrolling and binging all our waking hours. We are already seeing how Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet-Of-Things (IoT) enable ubiquitous automatization and disruptions of many jobs, inevitably leading to more dependence, more anxiety, less freedom, more unhealthy lifestyle and more screen addictions.
More and more people choose a sedentary lifestyle, moving too little (except eyes and fingers), overeating unhealthy food, and developing addictions (like alcohol, drugs, gaming, gambling, and social media). Despite virtual connections with the whole world and complete knowledge at one touch, people are more anxious, lonely and depressed than ever.
Prioritizing immediate pleasures, instant gratification and unsustainable consumption, are pushing us over the edge. As a result, we destroy our health, our healthy environment and our healthy future. A combination of media, technology, marketing and exploitation of human weaknesses shape societies with less love, less compassion, less focus and less care for natural ecosystems. We want everything now, without the will to learn, grow and connect as humans at a deep level. As a result, we feel disconnected from ourselves, from other people and from nature.
Which People Choose A Healthier Lifestyle?
This can vary depending on various factors, including access to technology, individual habits, specific lifestyle and cultural norms. However, some studies have suggested that people who live in rural areas or have limited access to technology may spend less time on electronic devices than those who live in urban areas or have greater access to technology. Additionally, people who prioritize activities such as outdoor recreation, hiking, socializing with friends and family, creative hobbies, and exercise may be less likely to spend excessive amounts of time on electronic devices. Ultimately, the amount of time individuals spend on electronic devices is determined by their health awareness, job requirements, variety of healthy lifestyle activities and overall quality of life.
Think about limiting your screen and sedentary time by changing your lifestyle, adjusting your work routine, adding outdoor and creative activities and focusing on long-term health goals.
Are We Glued To Our Screens?
How much time children and adults spend on electronic devices can vary depending on various factors, including age, individual habits, lifestyle, and access to technology. However, according to a recent American Academy of Pediatrics study, children and teenagers in the United States spend an average of 7 hours per day on electronic devices, while adults spend an average of 8 hours per day. Therefore, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children and teenagers not spend more than two hours per day on electronic devices. In comparison, adults should limit their screen time to no more than four hours per day. Therefore, it is vital for individuals to monitor their screen time and ensure that it is reasonable.
Why Is Excessive Time On Electronic Devices Harmful?
Excessive time spent on electronic devices can be harmful in several ways.
Some of the adverse effects of excessive screen time include:
Sleep problems: The blue light emitted by electronic devices can interfere with the production of melatonin, a hormone that helps to regulate sleep. As a result, excessive screen time can lead to difficulty falling asleep, waking up frequently during the night, and not getting enough restful sleep.
Mental health problems: Excessive screen time has been linked to various mental health problems, including anxiety, depression, addictions and attention problems. Social media, in particular, has been shown to increase feelings of loneliness and social isolation and can lead to negative body image and self-esteem issues.
Physical health problems: Prolonged sitting and sedentary behavior can lead to a range of physical health problems, including obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Add unhealthy food, alcohol and other addictions into the mix, and severe illness is a sure thing. Excessive screen time can also lead to eye strain and headaches and contribute to poor posture and musculoskeletal problems.
Disconnection from nature and people: Living in virtual worlds of online games, social media, binge-watching and other addictive disciplines moves people away from interactions with the natural world and real people. That removes healthy habits and diminishes healthy relationships from their lives, and people become more like robots, programmed and artificial, without abilities for real adventures and life quests.
Electronic devices have many benefits if choosing intelligently how we use them and what for. But companies beyond all these addictive apps and endless entertainment make money from keeping you longer and longer glued to screens. They have the most brilliant people to design, develop, analyze and reach their goals. It is not a fair fight, and you will certainly lose if you do not actively take your life and health into your own hands.
10 Ways To Reduce Screen Time
There are several ways to reduce screen time and ensure it is reasonable. So you free more time for yourself, your family, your creations and explorations of nature.
Some strategies that may be helpful include:
Set limits on how much time you or your children spend on electronic devices, and stick to those limits. For example, you could set a limit of two hours per day for children and teenagers and four hours per day for adults.
Create designated times for using electronic devices, and stick to those times. For example, you could set specific times of the day, such as after school or after dinner, as when it is okay to use electronic devices. During work, you can specify only a few times to check your devices so you can be more focused and efficient.
Make sure that other activities, such as exercise, outdoor play, going into nature and socializing with friends and family, are a regular part of your routine. This can reduce the time you or your children spend on electronic devices and increase your well-being and a sense of purpose. And you will feel physically and emotionally great, full of healthy energy.
Avoid using electronic devices the hour before bedtime, as the blue light from screens can interfere with sleep. Also, stretching your brain with too much artificial visual stimulation and postponing going to bed will not help you get enough sleep time (your brain and body need it).
Turn off notifications for social media and other apps, as they are designed to distract you and increase your time on your phone or other devices.
Create a technology-free zone in your home, such as a designated room or area where electronic devices are not allowed. Use these areas for creativity, exercising, laughing, painting, writing or learning to play some instrument.
Take regular breaks from electronic devices, and do something else, such as read a book, walk in the woods, play with your child, create something with your hands, try new healthy recipes or do a puzzle.
Consider using apps or other tools to track and limit your screen time. You will be surprised how many times you grab your phone and how many hours you waste.
Involve the whole family in reducing screen time, and make it a collaborative effort. Start new fun, engaging activities like dancing, singing, gardening, cycling, hiking, geocaching, playing outside, exploring nature and learning about all fantastic plants and animals, helping others or organizing community gatherings.
Remember that your health is at stake if you do not find ways to regularly unplug and disconnect from technology, electronic devices and screens.
By following these 10 strategies, you can reduce screen time and replace it with activities that benefit your health. You will also become happier, more creative and more connected to people and nature.
Your healthy lifestyle is a wise step on your path to exploring your life possibilities.

What Is So Wrong With Our Developed World?
Shouldn't most of us be happy and healthy most of the time, after all these decades of progress and GDP growth? Shouldn't we feel harmony and prosperity instead of division and inequality? What are the causes of widespread depression, modern illnesses and gripping fears? Why are our individual and collective creative powers not put to good use that benefits all people? Why are we not doing something worthwhile with our lives? How would the world be different if we learned to choose what is good for us and the planet? How would the world be different if we wanted to preserve the natural environment on which we depend?
Something strange has been happening all these years. Are we all crazy about the wrong goals? Why are we still ignorant and selfish? Do we have to fight each other? Do we have to destroy nature in every possible way? We have deceived ourselves. We are still delusional.
The world is full of ignorance and selfishness, stupidity and destruction.
Why Are Health And Happiness So Rare?
Health and happiness are perfect topics for lifestyle and business magazines because of their elusive and desirable character. But as we see, they are always mixed with heavy marketing aimed at unsustainable consumption. People are hoping for long healthy life, but doing everything that brings all kinds of illnesses, anxieties and worries.
What is scary is that health and happiness are not integral to children and lifetime education. Nobody teaches us how to choose a healthy lifestyle in our crazy deceiving complex world. So it is not a coincidence that illness and unhappiness drive our GDP growth. Our modern world is not structured to solve real challenges in a clever sustainable manner. It deals with symptoms, not with causes.
The most watched television programs and online portals are news. They are deliberately a row of horror events, a row of sensational news, a row of crime, a row of politics, a row of entertainment, a row of sports and so on, almost entirely without content that would inspire, teach, connect and elevate people. Even the rest of the TV and internet content follows the same pattern. People are deliberately fed with many negative and harmful sensations, so even when someone rebels, when something does not suit him, he always thinks there is worse and does not think somewhere is better.
Many people think they can not change or influence anything, so better to stick to endless Netflix binges or sports leagues. That makes the vicious circle even worse because now we have more addictions to support each other. When we add unhealthy habits of eating, drinking and gambling that fit this lifestyle and dominate in ubiquitous commercials, we don't have to wonder why this situation suits powerful rulers of the people.
People become addicted to following and consuming different kinds of trash day by day. Without meaningful substance in their empty lives, they crave meaning and passion but get illness, debt and manipulation instead.
Fear rules people. Don't let fear rule your life. Wake up and do something unique with your life!
Our 'advanced' society is a surreal society that avoids real problems. For instance, we deal with bizarre and trivial, hanging between fear and uncertainty, as we feel overwhelmed and meaningless. We blindly accept our life as a messy firework of selfish unhealthy ignorance. We adore celebrities, movie stars and sports gods above art, science, and wisdom. A vast majority of people don't understand how technology, the economy, and planet ecosystems work, let alone all the complex interrelations and actual impact on their lives. They don't even care about it. They are busy with gossip, sensations and endless entertainment. They are fed the meticulously designed news made to keep them fearful, passive and ignorant. Media lights are shining away from real solutions that voters and politicians need to grasp if we want things to be different. Consequently, our prevailing culture makes the matrix possible.
You Can Be The Change You Seek
Fearless and intelligent people are dangerous for a system of control. The system is designed to make people ignorant and destructive. In other words, personal growth and consciousness wouldn't preserve structures of power that feed on our ignorance and destructive behaviours. The current world order doesn't need healthy and creative people who can connect together around important issues. Everybody is on the same lonely island and part of the headless herd.
There is hope, though. You can start the change yourself. Find needed knowledge, learn to change bad habits and choose a different path. You can connect with like-minded or inspirational people who can support your journey, light your next steps, and facilitate your creations, as many others join along the way. We can be the change we are seeking. Undertake the transformation journey is actually the act of rebellion against the wrong system that keeps us trapped and passive. It is our way to freedom. Therefore, we need to become healthier, more innovative, more active, and more connected to design the life we love.
What Curious Daring People Can Do?
For these evolutionary aspirations toward a prosperous creative life, we want our bodies and minds to be capable of all the challenges ahead. Therefore, we need to learn to be healthy and practice being happy. After that, we must dare to be creative by doing something that matters. Above all, we must strive to paint the big picture of our fulfillment together with people who care.
don't be a miserable shopaholic >>>> explore your authentic happiness
stop being an unhealthy couch potato >>>> choose to dance, cycle and eat veggies
don't be a debt-drowned destructive rat racer >>>> do what you love and what is good
stop your artificial behaviours >>>> experience and love nature
In conclusion - grow your energy first. Next, raise your awareness. Third, boost your motivation. And fourth, develop your creations. If you do all four, you will experience immense personal growth. Art Of Green Path covers all these dimensions and much more.
Let's see how you can grow your healthy energy first!

We Can Not Increase Motivation If We Stay Slaves Of Ignorant Consumption
Instead of searching for experiences that make us feel alive, we look for quick fixes and destructive addictions. For example, we choose high-sugar pleasure food, damaging alcohol, ridiculous gambling, luxury shopping, endless entertainment, and social media as distractions. The list is endless. We don't have enough motivation to do anything other than repeat the same vicious cycle all over again and get nowhere.
Our time is wasted, and our lives joyless. Our children play stupid, violent harmful games all the time as we don't know how to inspire them for anything else. We feel overwhelmed by the jobs we hate. So first, we lose our health to get some money, and then we lose more money to recover our health. Money is our ruler, as we are the slave of mindless consumption. As a consequence of this, we are constantly replacing our existing debts with more massive debt and sinking deeper into our hole of despair. In our absurd world, debt traps are the essence of unsustainable economic growth.
Despite or rather because of all these delusions, we feel less and less free.
There are certainly much better and healthier ways to live our lives. To reject ignorant consumption and create a healthy future. Do you want to feel motivated to do something about your life?
How Do You Feel?
How Do You Want To Feel?
Sick and Ignorant OR Healthy and Inspired?
Destructive and Selfish OR Creative and Generous?
Trapped and Disconnected OR Free and Connected?
In our age of depression and consumerist lifestyle, many people are anxious and hungry for resonating answers to essential life questions: How to get motivated? How to feel alive? How to choose a healthy lifestyle? For sure, there is nothing more valuable than to be inspired for everything you desire to do.
Art Of Green Path LIGHT leads people on a journey of exploration that involves thoughtful questions, unique motivation and active focus on their path to be confident and plan life adventures.
Why Health Empowers Ourselves And Our Contribution To Healthy Future
1. Health means the absence of illness or injury, but it also includes having the energy, strength, and vitality to live a fulfilling and creative life.
2. Health is the overall well-being of an individual, including physical, mental, and emotional components. A healthy person has many wishes, but a sick person has just one.
3. Many factors contribute to good health, including genetics, lifestyle, access to quality healthcare and the community and culture where we live.
4. A healthy diet, regular exercise, and sufficient sleep are all critical for maintaining good health. In addition, nature has a powerful impact on our health, as the foods we eat and the environments we live in can either nourish or harm our bodies.
5. Mental health is just as important as physical health, including our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. Stress, anxiety, and depression are common mental health concerns that harm overall health.
6. Health can be affected by various external factors, such as the environment, work conditions, and social support. Unsustainable consumption, disconnection from nature and stressful jobs negatively influence our health.
7. Work can take a toll on our health, whether it's the physical demands of manual labor or the stress of a high-pressure job. So it's essential to find ways to balance work and self-care.
8. Maintaining good health requires effort and discipline, but the benefits include increased energy, improved mood, reduced risk of illness and higher creativity.
9. Proper medical care, including regular check-ups and screenings, is essential to maintaining good health. Thinking about the future can help us prioritize our health, as the choices we make today can have a lasting impact on our well-being.
10. Taking care of our health never stops, but the rewards are well worth it. Healthy people are more likely to be happy, have enriching relationships, care for nature, achieve their goals in life and create a healthy future for all.
Self Motivation is a self discovery that happens through these 3 sources:
Few people question conventional life choices. Learn how to ask and answer important questions that have a profound impact on your future.
The system offers obvious, easy, delusional choices - to control us. Learn how to motivate yourself around your values and life goals.
Our world is full of consumption and fears. Learn how to increase self-motivation by actively exploring healthy and adventurous living.
Below you will find my related insights to help you find right questions, develop right motivation and achieve right focus.
What experience do you need?
How to develop a healthy lifestyle?
How can you live adventurously?
How to connect with nature & people?
Answers to these essential questions are making our life exciting and extraordinary, or dull and painful. Many are trapped in mainstream life of overconsumption and unhealthy choices. Being passive, not dare to seek better alternatives. So they stay stuck in a fog of addiction and sickness, ignoring the desire for a life adventure.
Instead, to feel passive and weak, you can feel healthy and alive. Only by experimenting with healthy motivation can you develop your conscious, healthy lifestyle. Even more, exploring connections with people and nature shape your adventurous living. Self-motivation is the key to feeling alive.
Finding healthy motivation is a transformative journey for all unbalanced souls.
