conquering The Mind with Conscious, Authentic Living

When Bronnie Ware, an Australian Nurse, asked her patients during their last days on earth what they regretted most in life, the most common answer was ” I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me”. Along with this idea, they also expressed wishing that they had worked less and spent it more with family, were able to express their feelings, find happiness, and stay connected with friends. Ultimately, the dying wished that they had lived life more consciously
What we all have in common is that we only live, one life and time is the one thing you can never get back. Mental Olympian is a blog focused on understanding the beauty of the human condition, using our mind and body to manifest our dreams and passions, and learning how to live an authentic, intentional life

About the Author

A few years ago, Mental Olympian was started as a community/blog that was intended to help others achieve self optimization. Like many others, I was apart of the “biohacker” community and had a very entrepreneurial driven mindset. 

At the time, I didn’t realize that I was starting this website to try and solve my own health problems. My headliner symptom was chronic fatigue, so I set out to figure out why my health was not improving. In between many doctors appointments, I was trying to “hack” my health. I exercised 5 days a week, ate a healthy diet, slept like sleeping beauty, and tried to manage my mind. I felt like crap on a daily basis, but was living the epitome of a healthy lifestyle. It wasn’t until a few years later that I was diagnosed with ME/CFS, Dysautonmia, & Small Fiber Neuropathy. These diagnoses challenged all the plans I made for my future self, my attachment to who I thought I was, and what life was about. My health, among many other adversities have now shaped how I see life and have taught me to live in the present.

The obstacles show us the way and allows us to derive meaning from our life. It is our responsibility to manage our mind, emotions, and interpret life in the best way possible to live a 100% authentic and intentional life.
