Staying up late is the new drinking

Staying up late is the new drinking, for me at least. I used to hate waking up hungover. It completely obliterated what for me is the best part of the day, the early morning. Now the same thing happens if I stay up too late. No devices but tv after 6pm works wonders. But if I make an exception and it keeps me up late, it ruins a lot of the next day.

In other words, I’m rueing having stayed up late last night. Mainly because the weather today is just so glorious, it would have been great to get outside in the early morning hours. That’s a very good incentive for me to continue not looking at my phone late into the night!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
