I started a good / bad routine: I smoke a joint, and then I start to walk in a good rhythm while I'm listening some audiobooks. I know the joint part is a no no, but it allows me to keep the attention in the story (I may have some undiagnosed issues with attention).

I'm currently walking between an hour, hour and half per day, being fat and sedentary. And I'm surprised at how good I feel every day since I started, physical and mentally.

If it works, it works.

Why a no no? It gets you out and doing stuff

Because I don't think smoking a joint is a good thing, and even worse if I do it while I'm doing exercise. But I can be wrong. Hopefully haha. I would love to be wrong.

Smoking in general isn't great, obviously, but if that's what it takes to get you active for now then it's worth it! If you can get edibles where you're at, same end effect but less smoke.

For some people exercise is it's own high, helps focus them. Helps remove distractions and stress of life. I think to get there you already have to be in shape enough to handle longer more intense sessions, though. So maybe a longer term goal!

Dude getting high can be FUN for some people but don't let marketing convince you that it's not always unhealthy.

Nice triple negative, maybe you should lay off the drugs

I do feel as if THC might be actually motivating for certain individuals. There’s the lazy stoner stereotype, but for me, I’ll be hopelessly depressed and then inhale some THC concentrate and instantly be engaged playing my guitar or going for a bike ride. I will say that most of my THC usage is driven by social isolation, so if I’m surrounded in a social environment that is stimulating to me (the people accept me, i seek out interaction with them because it is enjoyable to me), then I don’t feel the need to use THC. The second Im alone though or with people I can’t stand I just want to go get high to go do my jam.
