To create an enduring type of balance, we need to go deeper and positively affect our body’s chemistry with benevolent types of exercise, thought patterns, foods and hormones. Beyond those dies, we need to create a deeper solidity in ourselves. We need purpose, to feel even our humblest acts have meaning and that we are connected to spirit and to others. When we build these things into our daily practices, they begin to ripple out and affect other areas of our lives.
Do you know your exercise personality? Do you need the support of a group? A trainer? Do you prefer to work out alone? Or do you like a combination?
If you move your body or you simply diet to “lose weight” or “look good” you’ll inevitably get bored, rebel and frustrated that it doesn’t work. But if you cultivate your passion to move, you won’t have to force yourself to do it and you’ll eat healthy foods and do your supplemental workouts with much more enthusiasm-because they support your passion! So you might as well let yourself be at least a little wild and free and use your workout time as an opportunity t to surrender to the passion of being alive. The more you pour in to your practice, the more love will in turn start pouring into and out of you.
