What a great day, yesterday.
Hordes of people got outside, going to parks and beaches and having a merry ole time, getting drunk on the healing powers of sunshine.
As of today, more and more businesses are going full throttle. Back to work.
Someone wrote me the following yesterday: “How are you doing during these times?”
“During what times?” I replied. “All we have is NOW. And as soon as NOW is here, it’s gone.”
I love it when this happens.
Without getting overly philosophical, everything is in the now. We remember in the now. We future-ize in the now. We act and dream in the now.
This doesn’t mean, however, that you never think about the past or the future. It’s wise to do so. Just be aware that you’re doing so in the present moment, the now.
Every moment is a new now.
Every moment is an opportunity to shift, to grow, to become.
And every hour on the hour is a reminder to do something physical.
It can be as simple as getting out of your chair and walking around. Or doing some bridging.
Just think, what would happen to your body, over the next 90 days, if instead of saying, “I don’t have time for exercise,” you did something for a minute, eight or ten times per day?
Let’s say at 9 AM you do a set of pushups. You’re done by 9:01 AM.
At 10 AM you do a set of bodyweight squats. You’re done by 10:01 AM
At 11 AM, you hang from a bar for 30-60 seconds.
At 12 Noon, you bridge over a Swiss ball.
At 1 PM, you do another set of pushups.
And so on…
There’s no need to find 30 to 60 minutes for your training if you feel pressed for time.
Begin in bite-sized increments – and stick with it.
Over time you will probably begin to spontaneously upgrade. You will notice how much more alive you are, how much more productive, so you fit more “me time” into your schedule.
This “me time” becomes a habit and eventually, in yet another NEW NOW, you look in the mirror and see someone staring back at you who is crushing it.
Start slowly. Generate momentum. And within a shorter time than you think, you will understand the meaning of…
Kick ass – take names,
