Inviting fitness into your life is, hands-down, one of the best things you can do for your mind, body and soul. Forget that it will help you get a “fit” body – because that’s really more of a side effect of fitness. The real benefit is the cascade effect of transformation it brings about. Fitness will reach into every corner of your day-to-day life; it will improve every part of you, strengthen every little thing that makes you, you.
I mean that.
This week has been an interesting one thanks to you – those who read this stuff I throw out there. In response to a call for advice last week, you came through. I’m feeling like the stifling pressure (I was putting on myself) has been lessened, and I owe that to you, not only for responding, but also listening.
I think. A lot.
I don’t mean to; it’s a part of my personality. The wheels in my head are constantly spinning, constantly in motion, constantly looking ahead for what’s next.
As much as I’ve honed an active imagination into a strength to push me forward – Where do I wanna go? How can I improve? What’s the next big idea? – in the past it has equally been a problem, something I’ve had to learn to manage in a healthy way. At one point I was taking three types of medication to help me manage it.
Spoiler alert: Some of your most cherished food and/or drink cravings may be forever tainted after you read this. Sorry to be that guy, but unfortunately I am that guy – so no, I’m not actually sorry to say this because it’s the truth: Some of our favourite things to eat and drink are actually quite gross if you think about it.
