Episode 105 – Rhythm – the new way to think about health and fitness
Have you ever been known to be “too extreme?”
How does this happen?
Well, maybe for a moment you’ve forgotten the big picture – the rhythm of your life.
Health and fitness is really about stepping back and looking at the big picture and finding the right puzzle pieces that work, ie. the healthy habits that you can do for life.
Maybe it scares you to see the obvious.
Or maybe it’s just commitment to lifelong habits…haha.
Then do them anyway.
What’s this about rhythm?!
Rhythm is a process.
Come to think of it, you are a process.
Rhythm is the very essence of your physiology – homeostasis – which when broken down literally means “same” and “status”.
You’re growing and you’re dying.
You’re winning and you’re learning.

You’re in constant evolution.
You’re coming to (re)balance.
So what’s the big deal about “rhythm”?
-If you find yourself on a diet and you crash and burn multiple times – that was too extreme – there was no rhythm to what you were doing and thus no sustainability.
-If you discover that you often fail at exercise routines, can’t sleep properly or you’re stressed all the time, then you need to understand what is happening to your “rhythm”
-If you find your thoughts, mindset and focus are behaving like a monkey (aka “monkey mind”) then maybe you’re out of rhythm.
If that’s you, STOP for a second.

Cut the rest and then build from those foundations.
