One theme I have recognized is pretty consistent with good results is simplicity. I really think that some of the most profound and beautiful experiences I have encountered in my life were found in moments of simplicity. I once paddled out to the open ocean when living in Mexico and was simply being, nice and chill, admiring the vast beauty when ad giant beautiful whale breached beautifully not 25 feet from where I was standing on my paddle board. It was so simple and natural yet one of the most vibrant energetic experiences I have had in heart and mind to date.
Whether it be with another being, the beautiful earth or the application of my creativity in drawing or writing, I have seen that simplicity is the key to good design. Tabata encompasses this theme and I can attest to its efficacy.
Tabata Benefits the Mind Too
If you need a confidence boost, then making it through a tabata workout will dial in some good esteem vibes. If you can’t make it through this workout style, then a good opportunity for you to level up your capacity and relationship to your body.
Tabata is a form of high intensity exercise so it gets those good feels endorphins emanating from your cerebral crib. It is a huge motivator in terms of mental strength if you battle with low vibe patterns of thought. It is an exercise that asks of you to step up, perform and kill it.
You may notice that mentally strong people, are usually walking around in bodies that are physically fit. This is no accident. The two are inextricably linked – the Mind Body connectivity is something that would be a good vibe to understand to be able to govern optimally.
Knowledge is Power. Simple.
When you push your body to complete a tabata workout it takes mental strength to persevere. Gradually, you adopt an ease in execution after repetition of an invested practice, you look better, you feel better about yourself and this permeates into your day with your interactions with people and also what foods you are drawn to in order to fuel your body.

The obesity epidemic in North America is unnecessary and indicative of lazy governance of mind and body. I am honest in the view of my perceptions and in no way want to diminish anyone who is obese. I merely state the facts as I see them based on wide spread information and scientific, physiological fact as well as my own personal pursuit for knowledge and life interesting and curious life experience.
Educate, empower, and dial in a body that is indicative of good, simple and healthy living.
