The Concrete Jungle


Sky high

At the moment I live in a densely populated, frenetic metropolis. I call it, “The Concrete Jungle”, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon from expanding…..up.

a situation or place of bewildering complexity or brutal competitiveness.


The noise, crowds, smells, and all around chaos combine to fuel that brutal competitiveness. It takes strength to go about the daily grind day after day. Both physical and mental.

The proven benefits of regular exercise are numerous. Besides helping prevent obesity, illness and chronic conditions, regular exercise helps to keep us alert – mentally strong. For me, it’s lifting weights. For others it may be jogging or yoga.

The ancient Greeks are considered the inventors of organized fitness, and with whom I am completely fascinated with. They believed simply, that a strong body equalled a strong mind. And as such, are considered “The Thinkers.”

So like a lion in the Serengeti, be alert, be active…

Be strong.
