“What in the world? I thought this blog was supposed to be about surviving architecture school??”
It is. Which is precisely why this section has to be here. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen some of the best people crumble and end up compromising their long-term welfare because of constantly killing themselves for short-term success. Life is a marathon, not a sprint, and if you aren’t conditioned as such, you’ll be a vegetable during the years where you could potentially do the most good. Don’t worry, I’ll only be giving practical advice that you can slowly implement in your busy architecture lifestyle. Trust me, it’ll be worth it.
Your body is a machine. If you don’t invest in it, and maintain it well, it will give way in the moments when you need it to perform the best.
This collection of writings will target topics of health, well-being, fitness, exercise and power-eating – specifically geared toward the needs and the lifestyle of the busy architecture student. This isn’t written with the aspiring bodybuilder or fitness model in mind; I’m not a credible resource person for that. I am, however, a great research person to if your goal is to feel energetic , perform with a clear mind, stay strong and conditioned – all while overcoming the busy onslaught of design school.
I did it for myself, and you can too. Be the best physical specimen you can be, while still living a balanced life. No gym membership required.
