Hello folks! A frequent comment I’ve noticed in multiples posts on this subreddit and on the aneros’ forums is the fact that aneros usage can be a spiritual and meditative experience in addition to being a prostate health tool and a sex toy. In this context, I feel like having a good physical and mental health is quite important thing we want to success reaching any goals with the aneros (HFWO, multiples DO, super Os, etc.).
COVID-19 have been rough on most of us. In my case, I’ve noticed that I’m exercising less than I was. Working most of the time from home, I’m not riding my bike as much as I was and I’ve been eating more sweets to manage my boredom. I’ve been vaping weed more than before, even though my consumption is always limited to late evenings. On the other hand, I took the habit of walking at least 30 minutes everyday since march, but I feel it’s still not enough and may explain some of my difficulties “mastering” the aneros, as I sometime get anxious during some of my sessions, which can ruin the experience.
In the last few days, I’ve started journaling my sessions to get a better view of what’s helping and I’m thinking about getting more physically active. Yoga seems to me like an interesting way to have more control on my breathing and posture, things that seem to me as essential for nice aneros sessions. I’ve been thinking about running again, something I’ve done for a few months two years ago, which I enjoyed, but it was getting hard to do in winter, as I’m living in Canada and in a place which can get freezing rain, rain and snowstorm in the same week. Finally, I must say that except for the changes I’ve listed before caused by COVID-19, I consider myself quite healthy. I’m vegan (won’t discuss that here though!), cooking pretty much every day and I don’t own a car nor do I use public transport regularly.
I’m curious, have any of you tried to work on their general health and seen results when using the aneros? What type of activities have been helping and which didn’t had much effect?
A final comment: even though the aneros can be challenging, I find it quite interesting that it forces us to slow down and learn to listen to our body. This is clearly not something penile masturbation would have forced me to do, and in a way, I’m glad that my learning of the aneros makes take a broader look at my good and bad habits, even if this is temporary (perhaps I’m just a bit too enthusiastic right now about getting more dry and super Os).Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/aneros/comments/k3mpin/physical_exercices_health_and_aneros/
