Fitness must improve life. Otherwise, it isn’t fitness. It’s a distraction.

It has to matter.

Fitness can’t just be about counteracting day-to-day life; each workout little more than a box to check.

Fitness must improve life. Otherwise, it isn’t fitness. It’s a distraction.

That’s why we’re always talking about “gains.” Maybe that’s bigger biceps and slimmer waists; cool.

But fitness is also about climbing more stairs, carrying an injured child to safety, and catching yourself before a painful fall.

So, we inject as many bouts of activity into each day as possible. Exercises as simple as FIVE squat and reaches/day. Because fitness has to matter.

Watch the clip above and get to it. Make it matter. Make gains!

Trying To Solve Every Problem Today

If there’s a theme to health and wellness, it’s this: everyone has issues. And trying to solve those issues in a day is a recipe for disaster.

I know this, yet I get lost at times, desperate, and in a hurry to progress. Forgetting all the while that progress is about patience as much as work.

“You have the right to work, but for the work’s sake only. You have no right to the fruits of work. Desire for the fruits of work must never be your motive in working.” ― Bhagavad Gita

That quote helps me remember to be patient and enjoy the little victories along the way.

Your Words Are Your Problem

“I’ll never be able to lift that.”

“I can’t quit sweets.”

“Running is what I dread most.”

“I always have a cold.”

Stop. Just stop talking yourself into your problems and start talking yourself out of them.

“I like to run.”

“I don’t need sweets.”

“I can lift more than that.”

Then, read this study and start believing and speaking differently.
