Most of us are extremely lucky and are not even aware of how grateful we should be that nutrition and hydration occur just by eating and drinking. Our organs are all key players in the orchestra that is total wellness. Without something as small as a gland we would not be able to produce hormones, and without hormones we would not be able to properly digest our food or begin something as paramount as our reproductive process. We need our kidneys to filter our blood, the only way that we can even begin to create the energy required to move. We need our liver like our fall out shelter or back up generator. It is not only a filter for all the waste we ingest, but it is also the place where we store our energy. Knowing what organs create and eliminate, and how they facilitate our abilities is the first step.More
Body: The body needs movement above all else.
Body: Your muscles are what give you the strength and ability to move, and complex movement like running, all the sport playing in the world, lifting enormous amounts of weight or just holding your body upright as an ocean wave tries to take you down, even something as silly as rolling onto your side when being tickled, and best of all self-healing. Each muscle big and tiny are working together, sometimes with the same effort, and sometimes against one another in order to give balance and grace to your effort.More
What does awareness or mindfulness even mean? This is the art of listening to our inner selves, and when we talk about it like this, it seems like a very kind and obvious thing to do. We are, quite literally, the only one we can talk to. If we continue to ignore ourselves we are the creators of our own alienation and discrimination. The means to achieving this bond with oneself and maintaining the mind-body connection is a process that will look differently for each and every person.
Your mood is directly associated with how well your mind can receive and process information.More
How can you, the creator of all the procrastination and laziness that has brought you to this point, also be your motivation?
You can start by understanding laziness is no reflection of strength. We are lazy because we live in a world where we do not have to do much of anything to get by. We are inherently lazy as any human would be living in an environment that is bent on creating and advertising an even easier path of least resistance. This is okay, and mostly not your fault, but it can all be turned around through the accumulation of changing many – and by many I mean thousands upon thousands of tiny details, habits, steps etc. 😉More
No matter the goal, be straightforward with yourself, as if you were coaching you – as if you were getting paid to make the best athlete out of yourself. Then you can work harder at being your own motivation rather than focusing on the difficulty of completing the goals that you have put forth.More
