Training in the gym, lifting weights, hill sprints and squats (etc) are all awesome for developing your body in different ways though you know the key thing to achieving the physique and peace of mind you want? It is to LOVE what you’re doing. That way it will be sustainable. There are a million ways to develop your body and train your mind. Find the ways you love and enjoy them…
Those of you out there loving what you’re doing – that’s awesome! If you’re not sure if you like the gym or go because you think you have to – maybe try something different?
The food we put in our mouths is VERY important! What we THINK about when we eat it is more important. The psychosomatic effect of what we eat is huge!
With this clip we are getting a bit hippy. And that’s OK because sometimes we all need to get a bit ‘hippy’…
Now we’re not saying go out there and eat loads of sugary, trans-fatty food GMO foods from McDonalds or KFC. What we are saying is if you want some junk, cut yourself some slack. Enjoy it, acknowledge that it is junk and that it’s not food and laugh it off and feel good because the guilt and psychological torture of “Oh…. I shouldn’t have eaten that…” makes a mess of your body physically as much as and possibly more than the food will.
On that note, when you eat good food that is nourishing for you, get hippy about it and celebrate it with good thoughts. Thinking “This organic chicken salad with organic extra virgin olive oil is SO good for me and I feel AWESOME” is going to amplify the benefits of that good food.
Yes I know it sounds hippy. It really does. But you know what – try it both ways and see which feels best. Its a no brainer! It works.
