I asked a handful of people from the creative industry to send me questions that they would like to be answered by the participants of the 100 Day Warrior. Out of approximately 30 questions I selected 13 that seem to cover most of the curiosity of most followers. Sanne went first, Esther was the second to answer them, then came Tommy. But now hear what Arent’s experience has been so far:
1. What were your expectations from the 100 Day Warrior? And have they been met?
I didn’t have many expectations so I can’t say may expectations have been met. My motivation to participate was because I did not know what 100 days of conscious eating, lots of training and meditation would do to me and I wanted to find out. The expectation that I did have; that in spite of the investment in time the course would result in increased peace of mind was met indeed.
2. How does the 100 Day Warrior affect you? How long before you started experiencing results?
I noticed positive results almost immediately. You become quickly aware of the impact of nutrition on your body and how wonderful it is to start your day with a portion of silence.
3. What was your biggest misconception of the 100 Day Warrior?
I thought I would not be able to free up the time.
4. What impressed you most so far?
How natural it feels to be in a process of developing body and mind.
5. What was most challenging, scary or demanding?
The most challenging aspect was to integrate the daily meditation. It is something that takes a certain amount of self-discipline and it is sometimes hard to take a time-out when you have a lot of work on your plate.
6. What is your biggest revelation until now?
That there are so many things in life that we take for granted or are unaware of. I never realized how much I was of influence on processes and patterns that surround me and that the way I relate matters and can be improved.
8. Which part of the 100 Day Warrior program would you rather have started 10 years ago?
I think everybody should have started this 10 years ago.
9. How does the 100 Day Warrior serve you in daily life and work?
I go through life a lot fitter and way more relaxed.
10. Does the 100 Day Warrior have an impact on the way you relate to your life?
Awareness has become important. I still fall into the pitfall of hectic living and quick judging but I catch myself faster and faster and am aware of the existence of better alternatives. 😉
11. What do you expect from the 100 Day Warrior in the long run?
Time will tell..
12. What does the term ‘warrior’ mean to you?
Somebody who does good. For himself and for others.
13. What is your wish for the future?
