I'll have a rest for a while.


Meditation is great

I will wake up at 4:30 am every morning from today. I have woken up at 5 o'clock am.

I'm not conscious about that, but I was able to make the time for meditation more. So I meditated this morning in addition to meditation around noon and twilight. I'm feeling great this morning.

I came to think that the world's problem will be solved if everyone meditates. Meditation is a great way to train your mind. You will dramatically feel good if you continue meditation for 2 weeks, maybe. It takes only ten minutes for beginners.


I have a lot of time

I don't have anything to write this morning.

I woke up at 3 o'clock AM. I read early morning quota of Creating a Learning Society. And I started the morning routine at 4:30, that finished at 5 o'clock when I wake up usually. I had a lot of time. I meditated 20 minutes and did fast reading training that I'm doing recently. I read nine English and Japanese books with fast reading techniques.

I have a lot of time this morning. I need to find things to do.


hay fever

I caught hay fever.

it was warm and fine day yesterday. And pollen was scattered from the mountain. My nose started running. So I took a medicine against allergy. I felt OK with hay fever with a supplement made of lactic acid bacteria recently, But it's hard to bear.


I'll finish Shoe Dog and start Creating A Learning Society

I don't have anything to write as usual.

I'll finish reading Shoe Dog today. Using the currency gap is a basic tactic from old age, and they did that. I'm not sure that that is still OK in today's world, but I'll bear in mind.

I'll start reading Creating A Learning Society. I already read over 20 times with photo-focus technique. If it would be very difficult for me, I would stop reading it and switch to The Four.


It will take 3 years

I'm reading about 7 or 8 books twice a day as a fast reading training.

I can understand some books and can't understand others. I know from a book that you can understand books reading very fast if you continue reading fast, even if you can't understand the contents now. It will take about a year, I guess. And If done, it takes about 3 years to complete the effort.


the lack of energy

I don't have anything to write this morning.

I decided not to go to the hospital for a blood test. I have pondered about that, and I guessed that this bad condition is caused by the lack of energy, in other words, food. So I'll try to eat more and check my condition by myself.


Reading in Japanese

I read two books in Japanese with PaperWhite after dinner yesterday.

Recently I find reading books in Japanese, my native language, is very fan. I can read Japanese books relatively faster now thanks to fast reading training. In addition, I can read many books for free by Amazon Prime. I'll read more books in Japanese with PaperWhite.


I went to the hospital

I went to the hospital for my low blood sugar like symptom.

The doctor said that I'm in a good condition in blood sugar when I took the test in the last autumn. So he reluctant to test again. But I decided to take the test next week. I need some reassurance because my low blood sugar is very tough.


Low blood sugar

I don't have anything to write this morning.

I felt a headache a little this morning. And the progress of my morning reading was a little slow. I'm feeling tired now.

Actually, I'm drinking high lycopene tomato juice yesterday's afternoon. That's the mottainai matter for me. And I didn't eat sweets yesterday because I had a little more rice at lunch. Maybe I need some sweets for keeping the condition.

I'll drink Monster Energy to keep my blood sugar level.


Finished The Power and started Shoe Dog

I finished reading The Power and started reading Shoe Dog.

The Power is a novel about discrimination against women. The story is that girls get unnatural power and beat the conventional authority. I thought that extreme sexual discrimination makes the world worse. This books English difficulty isn't high but it's hard for me to understand the situation of the story, maybe because of my lack of experience of reading novels in English.

Shoe Dog is a memoir of the founder of Nike. I heard somewhere that this book is an easy-going entrepreneur story of Nike. I'm not sure about that for now. I already read about 30 pages for an hour this morning. I set the quota of my daily reading 60 pages a day for this book. I could finish it for about a week.


Meditation is great, but...

I found that meditation is reducing my body fat level.

As I wrote, I stopped taking high lycopene tomato juice. My condition is becoming better, but my body fat level isn't increased. So I'm still intaking sweets to keep my condition.

I found on the web that meditation reduces body fat level, so I guess that I won't be fat if I continue to meditate. I don't know it's good for me or not. It will be the worst if I stop eating candy and my blood glucose level lower.

I need more information to keep my condition. I'm dizzy while I'm writing this entry.


Tomato juice is the cause

I was feeling tired yesterday morning. I found the cause.

I was drinking high lycopene tomato juice every morning. And lycopene fosters to generating insulin. Insulin lowers glucose blood level. That's the cause. I was low glucose blood.

I stopped drinking the tomato juice, and I'm feeling good this morning. Taking too much unnatural food is bad for our health. But I'm still considering to drink normal tomato juice every morning. I like tomato juice.


I'm tired

I don't have any particular things to write this morning.

I'm practicing speaking English on Twitter. But I don't have anything to say even in speech. And I'm feeling tired of the daily routine. I want to do nothing, but my habit doesn't allow me being lazy.

My English ability is becoming worse now. the pages of extensive reading are reducing. And I don't come up with what to write and speak. And I can't listen to English perfectly. I'm tired anyway.


I'm tired

I don't have anything to write this morning.

I'm recently reading many books, seven or eight books, with a fast reading technique. It makes me fatigued. And I don't come up with what to write for this blog. I'm tired of reading too many books.


I really have nothing to write this morning.
I'll have a rest.


Something is wrong with me

I wake up late. Something is wrong with me.

I'm reading eight books with fast reading technique, except for usually reading books in English. So that's the cause to feel tired recently. I'll stop fast reading today.

My head doesn't work this morning.


Finished The Da Vinci Code, started The Power

I finished reading The Da Vinci Code and started reading The Power.

The Davinci Code is a novel about searching the Holy Grail in France and Britain. I have already read Origin, the novel about the secret of humankind, about 6 months ago. The story is very interesting. I thought that I need to solve the riddle by myself to read the kind of novels, but I can enjoy it only to read the book.

I have already read twenty pages of The Power and I found the novel is using very easy language. Maybe the book is for young people. But the book's story is fascinating for me. Girls get a supernatural power and do something. The book has about 330 pages so I need to finish it for about a week. I'll read 50 pages a day.


I started speech training

I don't have anything to write this morning.

I started to record my speech in English two days ago. I'm uploading the video on Twitter. But The twitter's limitation of video length is making the speech very short, 140 seconds, about only 2 minutes. But Twitter is the easiest way to stimulate my motivation to speak in English, and I'll continue it.

My speaking skill in English is not very good, I need to improve my ability to speak something.


The result is today

I don't have anything to write this morning.

The score of the TOEIC test in January will be revealed today. I'm afraid that the score will reduce from 900. But I know my English ability is growing and I could probably get a decent score. Probably.

I'll write about the result on my Japanese site https://tosh-jp.com/ in Japanese, regardless of whether I get the nice score or not.


A season of hay fever

I don't have anything to write this morning.

The season of hay fever is coming. Fortunately, I have no symptoms of hay fever for now. I have been taking the medicine made with lactic acid bacteria from the same time of last year, probably it's working.

But my hay fever starts with feeling something wrong around my head, so it's difficult to distinguish from catching a cold. I need to watch carefully.


Meditation and fitness

I don't have anything to write for this blog this morning.

I have meditated for about 2 weeks, and I found that meditation is good for my fitness. After starting the meditation, I'm becoming slim. But I have been feeling something wrong when my body fat is 18%. And recently my minimal body fat was once around 17%. At that time, I'm feeling ill so I took sugar intently like by energy drinks. Now I'm eating more than before for my condition. I don't need to eat less.


I'll write in Japanese

I'll write about my English learning in Japanese at https://tosh-jp.com.
Please check it, if you can read Japanese.
