In the latest issue of asPire Magazine, Joseph Bismark shares the diet, exercise regime, literature, and the apps that help him maintain his healthy lifestyle.
The article released through Reuters notes that Bismark isn’t all talk. “I am a staunch advocate of holistic health and wellness.” He noted that he works out and does yoga. Additionally, Bismark cycles and swims.
Bismark’s favorite app for cycling is MapMyRide, which is a device that keeps track of fitness activities and contains a log that records distance, length, pace, speed, elevation, and calories burned.
When it comes to yoga, Bismark’s favorite literature is “Anatomy of Yoga: An Instructor’s Inside Guide to Improving Your Poses” by Dr. Abagail Ellworth. Bismark explains that the book is very detailed and as a yoga master, it is very important to continue learning more about the practice. SoundCloud, too, is another great tool for yoga, as it allows him to upload his mantras and chants for mediation.
For mental health, Bismark uses Luminosity, an online web-based app that uses games to keep the brain sharp. He plays around 15 minutes a day, everyday. Bismark says he believes in “the importance of immersing ourselves in as many physical and mental activities as we can. Aside from the fact that activities keep us fit, they also help us conquer self-doubts and fears, to achieve the best version of ourselves.”
Joseph Bismark is a multi-faceted man who lives his life by the mantra “everyone has the potential to do extraordinary things.” As the founding director of the QI Group and the managing director as of 2008, he leads with his unique background in Vedic philosophy; at age of nine, Joseph left his home and joined an ashram to become a monk.
