The hedonistic humanist

I confess, I’m lazy. I like good food. When I’m around sweets, I usually eat too much. And I don’t suffer from a bad conscience afterwards. A hedonistic humanist? Harmony and balance, however, must be maintained, so the counterbalance to this hedonism are exercise and work brought about through self-discipline.

Ashtanga yoga, working out at the gym, riding a bike and walking the dog are good ways to clear your mind while also burning a few calories. In my job I need to absorb a lot of new information, so I have to do something physically demanding. At the same time it keeps my mind alert and lets me wake up better each morning to enjoy some more lazy moments – and treats.
