German for "over stallion," and a reference to Nietzsche's "Übermensch," /üb/ - Überhengst is about bettering yourself physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. It is about self-improvement, constructive self-reflection, and seeking advice from others. You may discuss here those personal hobbies through which you develop your creative energies, and the efforts you take to improve your talents, artistic and otherwise. And of course, this is a board for fitness and literature, as they are parts of the backbone of physical and mental wellness. This is also a board where we may discuss Western culture - history, literature, architecture, and philosophy - as when imbibed, culture improves the mind and spirit, sharpening mental faculties, and providing a greater connection to those around you and to civilizations millennia old.

As this is a self-improvement board, discussions of personal problems should be constructive. No wallowing in self-pity. We are here to become better, and while seeking company in misery may be a helpful part of the process, the process does not end there.

>The short naps only ever engage stage 1 sleep
This isn't true, anon. the naps are REM sleep.
You body skips straight into REM because it knows it won't get much sleep.
It's basically throwing your body into "survival mode".
But it still isn't sustainable. If you miss any of the naps, you get fucked up for weeks.
I've looked into it before, you're better off just grabbing a nap or two each day to cut sleep time down by 2-4 hours.

Consuming (somewhat excessive amounts of) alcohol prior to, 'going to sleep,' or, 'passing out, suppresses the REM stage of sleep.
Drinking for, lets say, 3 days in a row, completely suppresses REM for that time.
The night after you stop drinking, going to sleep sober, causes your REM to come back and make up for, 'lost time,' thereby causing intense dreams, also known as, 'nightmares.'
Being a pony, mares are fine with me, but I like them white, not black - like a night-mare…

Hey Üb, lets read together shall we?
I propose this, we all vote for a book every month and we all read it together then we discuss its contents here, to ensure we are on the same page we should read a certain number of pages every day.

Lets say, a 200 pages book in a 25 days month would make up for 200/25= 8 pages a day. (i know these are really few pages but its just to ensure we can all spare some time to read it)

So, wanna do it? Just post a book below so we can make a strawpool!
To start with something im sure we all are familiar with, i will add Mein Kampf to the list, post any books you would like to go to the strawpool below!

I dunno. I'm feeling pretty good even with all that's happened recently.

Pony, I guess? I can't get enough pony. Even between here, /mlp/, and /pone/ things aren't always fast enough for me sometimes. I just want to talk about ponies and shit, and think nice thoughts. And when I don't? It's /pol/shit. Niggers and alt-left and kikes and shit. Riots and escalating violence. Lugenpresse, fake news, and propaganda. I guess pony is the only thing that keeps me going, really. I can think happy thoughts of cute little creatures, and true love, and friendship. Which is good, because I swear to god I'll kill people if they keep carrying this bullshit to the extreme and SHTF. Lucky, I live pretty far away from all that, and I've got ponies, lots of happy green, and cute pictures.

Helps keep me in check. Happy feelings make for a happier, more content you. True fact. I guess I self-medicate with ponies. I drink a bit, too. Not too much though. Been there done that. It isn't fun. I also like to think. Just use the ol' noggin. Makes it fun to debate and enjoyable to type out long posts like this one. It gives me a chance to put pen to paper, so to speak, and it helps to refine concepts and ideas. That's my sad, simple little coping mechanism.

It's cool that you've got good health and a job and good grades and shit, but you gotta give yourself a long-term goal to achieve, or at least something to look forward to everyday. That's the key to happiness. It's no secret.

7c47d No.611

you cope with it by making things that make you feel good, and people around you.
ponies are cute, so be happy watching good stuff.
have fun with your fams or friends, go hang out with them or just walking around with them.
help in your neigbourhood commune, or just do comune service.
there's choices and stuff to help making your surroundings better. you won't change the world, but at least you'll give the first steps to a better future and a better life

I like to devote 1 day a week to rage, and I make sure that all my activities are high energy. I spend the day reveling in all the things I am dissatisfied with, all the adversaries and adversities I resolve to defeat, eliminate, or circumvent.
Basically I spend the day heeding the advice of Darth Sidious. I've been doing it for several years, and it has given me a greater control over when my rage rises, and a greater control of my behavior when it does.

I get caught up in autism quite a bit, sometimes to anger. What fixes things for me is taking a step back. If possible, talk it out with those who are causing the antagonization. If they are just dicks and won't care, then realize they're not worth the emotional drain to get upset over. It really helps me to think of the big picture, and of how the seemingly humongous issue is actually minor and will soon fade. It takes a lot of effort, but you can choose to let it go entirely, even if the situation persists. That's difficult but the most permanent solution. The overwhelming urge is to fester on the negativity. It takes a real man or woman to take a deep breathe and decide that you're not going to allow it to reign over you anymore.

Frontiersmen survive at all costs. They battle blistering heat and scathing blizzards. They conquer mountains and bogs. They not only survive, but thrive in all manner of the toughest conditions mother nature throws his way. This is the ideal body type we should strive for.

Mass bulk for the sake of photos is merely another case study in societal decay and decadence. Fitness is for a greater purpose. We are not made for fitness; fitness is made for us. We must learn to master ourselves for the pursuit of higher goals.

There's no boundary to meditation beside your own discipline. Don't think if you're meditating for too long or not enough. The baseline you set yourself should be according to your own mind.
If you're starting breath meditation to better your focus and awareness, you can measure progress by how long if takes your mind to become exhausted from the effort, or with how much ease it slips from focus.
In my experience, meditation progress is nowhere near a neat line of any kind. It's more like pic related. Some days will be great, some will be bad, but there's a slow and overall improvement. So don't be take to heart a sudden dip or rise in quality.

As for knowing about Buddhism, it depends what you mean. If you want to fully follow the teachings and 'convert' as it were, then yes, you should go and research the core principles and teachings at least. Buddhism is not like other religions, however. It shows you the way and asks you to walk it yourself. So; to achieve enlightenment is something only you can do for yourself, and no amount of knowing 'about' Buddhism will help you with that.
If you meant meditation and other mind-based practices, it depends.
Some meditations are meant to be spiritual, with specific goals and ways of thought. Others, such as breath meditation, are not dependent on faith at all, and are entirely personal as to your technique, method, goal, etc.
It never hurts to do your research, and the wisdom you hear from others may very well help you greatly, but with meditation it is your own mind fixing your own problems. You can see that this comes down to your own wisdom, and not that of others.

Hope this helps, Anon.

I'd say this is mostly accurate. I remember from the view stuff i saw about bodybuilding that the models were so exausted right before the contests that they were on the verge of collapsing. the amount of visible muscle does not translate over to health over overall body power. Its purely visual and does not last long at all.

Weight Lifters and even other athletes that rely on high body strength more often than not look rather tubby. Other examples go as well. look at pic related. this woman won the world champion title in kickboxing while she had a similar body type.

It mostly has to do with hydration. Like it said, bodybuilders dehydrate themselves to get that look. It's why their veins pop out so much.

a3411 No.730

Really accurate
The best way to get strong actually is to get fat by eating a lot of meat, greens, and carbo due to increasing your own needs.
That's why at first you can lift weighs to tone the muscle, but if you want a big body you will have to keep up for a while and then push yourself to the limit.
After exploding a few veins, your muscle will increase. After that, you only need to keep up so the day you are old, your skin won't turn into a skin matress.
And don't forget your legs. You need good cardio to keep good strenght

"Lol triggered" is a shit post that adds nothing to the discussion.

Romance-writer anon, go read some good romance novels. Then go read some popular romance fimfics. They're nothing like real relationships, but that's how you write a "Good" romance novel: The fantasy in which two likable characters you want to get together do so. Romance stories are read by the literal lowest common denominator (Even lower than 4chan generalfag greentexts) so you don't need authenticity, you need spectacle. You don't need romantic experience to write a romance novel. So go read some popular romantic stories, and rip them the fuck off.

a2e6c No.729

But I don't even really want to write a romance.
I am writing the story of two highly different characters finding a common note through a shared love for a subject and, as a result becoming increasingly lost in eachother until it culminates in one losing the other after being blinded to the circumstances of their relationship for so long, effectively turning the story into a classical tragedy as they desperately try to recover from their hubris and regain a semblance of their past life through expertise in said subject.

I'll give it a minor rewrite after I read the official show bible, to mostly reflect its canon.
