Daniel said:

“I still believe that the body is designed to be pushed. I think we need some kind of physical exertion in our lives.”

“You are at the seat of your own experience in this life. It’s quite easy to get drawn into a life of just being pulled in different directions emotionally, so try and retain a level of autonomy over your own emotional state.”
