Strong body=A mind without limitations

Many people dig too deep down the rabbit hole of consequences when it comes to our decisions about our health and fitness.

They talk about cigarettes causing cancer when a more pressing issue should be how much it affects our day to day energy, our capacity to breath and quite frankly just how damn smelly it is.

They talk about obesity causing all sorts of fancy sounding medical issues down the line which people cannot connect to when simply telling people that it will hinder them in any sort of physical activity, like playing with their kids, walking the dog, or planning any sort of trip that requires physical exertion will do quite nicely.

We don’t need every reason to be healthier to be some do or die necessity to spur people to make some small changes in their lives.

A healthy, strong body allows the mind to be free of limitations.  That is really the only reason you need to take care of yourself.

After all, if you need the fear of hell to spur you to be a good person, then you were never a good person to begin with.

Steady effort

When it comes to being in shape, consistency is key.

But too many people get caught up in the minutiae, creating programs and perfect 10 year visions of how they want to progress.

Now if you are someone who is a professional athlete this makes complete sense, but for the average  person getting bogged down in these things can be a huge mistake. The most important thing to getting in shape is just to do physical activity, and as I said earlier, do it consistently.

It doesn’t matter what it is, just do it every day and do it well. Walk, run, jump around, get your blood flowing and your muscles straining, and you will be a better, stronger human being as the years go by.

There is no secret sauce, just the miracle of steady effort.
