About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Eating only when hungry. Exercise a half an hour each day. Eat whole foods and drink water, tea or coffee.

It *is* mental. In our super efficient lives where google saves us time by telling us where to eat, where to go, what to do, we're brainwashed into thinking it's a waste of time to get on a bicycle to go to work, grocery store, or even exercise. We join a gym because it's just complicated enough - you have to drive there, you have to scan a badge if you remember to bring it, you need your gym bag with the right shoes and change of clothes - that we'll find excuses not to go.
Key: bicycle to work means you'll do it everyday.

I can truly say the reason i stopped excersicing. Is because i feel restricted. But in the army and marines and airforce. They exercise everyday.
