Strategies for a more Foresighted lifestyle

Our bodies are influenced by all the stimulations we give them, and these can be broken down, roughly, into:

  • physical ones: volume and type of activity, footwear and clothes we wear, cold/heat exposure, etc.
  • nutritional ones: what type of foods we eat, when, etc.
  • mental ones: relationships within our human tribes, etc.
  • environmental ones: where do we live, nature immersions, and more

We’re grouping below some principles and strategies to achieve them, by area, to give a high-level overview of what a Foresighted lifestyle looks like.

Although strategies are noted under one category only, most obviously apply to several of them!

Physical domain

Principle: get enough physical activity

Getting enough can be done by getting more volume and/or increasing its intensity.

Increasing Volume

Increasing Intensity

Principle: Get enough variety of physical activity

Principle: try to cover most natural movements

Principle: Minimize sedentary time

Principle: Minimize the constraints on our bodies

  • Barefoot/minimalist shoes: an easy swap is to get more minimalistic footwear

Nutritional

Principle: Prioritize real foods

  • Animal foods: prioritize wild-caught seafood or game, as well as grass-fed, free-range and sustainably raised beef, lamb, chicken, pork, etc.

Principle: Minimize processed food

  • Minimize heavily processed vegetable oils

Principle: Minimize free sugars intake

  • Definitely avoid processed food with added sugars in them

Mental domain

Principle: Reconnect and spend more time outdoors, ideally in nature

  • Even 10 mins in a small urban park is highly beneficial

Principle: Find and connect like-minded humans sharing your views and values

Environmental domain

Principle: Re-incorporate discomforts in our lives

  • refrain from—completely—protecting yourself from the elements. Expose yourself to variations in temperature, wet/dry areas, etc.
  • safely incorporate risk in your training
  • train and walk barefoot outside when possible and safe to do so

Principle: More than a minimalist lifestyle, use a nomadic lens

  • a lot of what we own is directly aimed at helping us reduce the efforts we make on a daily basis. So the less we own, the more we stimulate our bodies.

Our standard modern lifestyle is making us weak, unhappy and for most of us, eventually sick. It’s a shame, because the antidote is known and simple: be more active, avoid eating processed crap, and connect more with nature and each other.

While simple, it isn’t easy. Foresighted makes it easier though, regardless of where you are in your journey.  Discover all the free resources available below.

Be brave. Be strong. Be foresighted.
