Movement, Muscle and Metabolism

“And while these pounds were being shed, while the physiological miracles were occurring with the heart and muscle and metabolism, psychological marvels were taking place as well. Just so, the world over, bodies, minds, and souls are constantly being born again, during miles on the road.” - Dr. George Sheehan

  1. Invest your resources in your chosen mode of movement. Facilitation of activity.

  2. Cardio/endurance commitment precedes strength training. Build habits before refinement and instruction.

  3. Avoid all diets. If it has a name or title, it won't last, and you'll spend a lot of money in the process.

  4. Keep a journal. Document how lifestyle choices (food, work, sleep, entertainment, drink, stress, etc.) make you feel.

  5. Graze throughout the day.

  6. Schedule periods of relaxation during the day.

  7. Sleep 7+ hours a night.

“What the jogger’s face shows is not boredom but contemplation, which Thomas Aquinas described as man’s highest activity save one—contemplation plus putting the fruits of that contemplation into action.” - Dr. George Sheehan Be confident and adamant about how you live your life. No explanations. No excuses. You own it, when you no longer feel like you are missing out on your old lifestyle. Movement, the endorphins and positivity it cultivates, is the way. Our life is a game. Play it often and play it well. Don't take what you do, or the decisions you make too seriously. Do your best. That's enough.
