Episode 104 – Why no rhythm in your health and fitness will make you fat and sick
Why would I say something like this?
Well, there’s a good analogy to explain it.
Alan Watts was a professor and philosopher who was regarded as one of the first people to bring the eastern philosophy to the western world (Suzuki was another).
One of his famous lectures was about the beauty of music and dance, and its direct analogy for life.
You see, in both music and dance, you simply enjoy them for what they are.
Take a moment.
…Think back to your favourite music… you love every minute of it right?!
Never want it to end…right?
Same with when you dance. You crave to express yourself in each moment of the dance – it’s endless fun and happiness in movement!
That’s the same perspective for how we should live life – love every minute, cherish each moment and fully express ourselves. Never rush for the outcome – for it’s not only a rhythm for life but a rhythm in your health and fitness!
How many times have you read these stories… for example, the “Biggest Loser” type challenges, where they lose epic amounts of weight like, 30 kilos, 50 kilos and they look fantastic.
…AND then 6 months later, they look terrible.
They’re back to their old self again, their vibrancy is gone and they even feel miserable.
There was clearly no rhythm there and they didn’t sustain it.
Read on below to find rhythm in your health and fitness.
Rhythm in your health and fitness
To them it was always about the results, the end result – the outcome – not the journey – and so the “result” then becomes heavy on their health.
In the first instance above they’ve put a lot of pressure on their physiology to lose weight and then when they regain weight in short amounts of time it again puts their body through extreme stress.
Both situations increasing disease risk (such as kidney stones, and cardiac issues).
Instead…why not chip away at it gradually and then keep it off for life?
Aim for sustainable – hey, you might even enjoy it more 🙂
