How Strong is Strong Enough?

mindset Feb 24, 2022

Last week we asked you guys to answer the question, "How strong is strong enough" and this response from Danielle really stood out to us: 


 

"I've experienced ‘strong enough’ all throughout this past year working a physically strenuous job, but I found myself still able to wake up, work on Homebodies, and do it all again. Working through the program (now for the second time) has helped me in my day to day life.

 Something as simple as lifting grocery bags, cleaning the house, etc. feels like nothing, knowing I have the groundwork completed and can properly use my body so as not to hurt it.

‘Strong enough’ is what I always envision myself to be, knowing I have the tools to properly use and train my muscles, soothe my muscles, and keep them engaged in day to day life.

We only get one body, so why not have your personal best version of it?

So grateful to have Homebodies every morning to ground myself and work on myself."

Out-Training a Bad Diet

health mindset Feb 17, 2022

 

Over time your body reflects  your HABITS & will adapt to the demands that you place on it every day… 

 

Habit has become a very hackneyed watch-word in Western Self Help Culture. 

We have the capacity to create seemingly endless problems for ourselves but there is always some NEW HABIT that will fix our problem. 

What if our actual problem is a habit? [The Habit is the Problem- a new self help book by Nate]

What if we habitually skip exercise, habitually reach for junk food, habitually take the elevator, habitually reach for anything easy, convenient, and instantly gratifying?

 

We all know that there is no one-single quick fix that can lead to real-sustainable health. You have to live that fuckin life. Every-single-day. It takes deliberate action to instill the healthy habits that govern good health.

 

Consider this:

  • Do we all exercise every single day? No
  • Do we all eat every single day? Yes

You're Not Lazy, You're a Victim of Comfort

mindset Feb 01, 2022
Are you trying to get ‘fitter’ by specifically focusing only on the one hour that you may spend training? Then once that hour is over you don't really do much else? Many of us would benefit profoundly by just incorporating more methods of movement & variety throughout the day.

 

A majority of individuals that may label themselves as un-FIT are not maladapted at all. In fact, it’s quite the contrary- they are adapted quite perfectly to the environment that they find themselves in most frequently.

 

The painfully apparent theme- 

 We are (literally & figuratively) killing ourselves with comfort. 

 


 

I’ve often wondered why it seems, as a culture, so many of us are unhealthy, unhappy and sick- despite neverending “advancements”, an overabundance of food, and endless scientific progress to make our lives better. As a whole, we are getting LESS FIT and MORE SICK each year. Shouldn't we be...

Embrace the Season

mindset Jan 25, 2022

The winter months are that time of year when our rhythm starts to seriously shift. It gets darker earlier, cold(er) weather, and back to back holidays have the potential to inevitably upend any healthy routines that you may have worked really hard to create. 

 

 (Ice baths are a regular occurrence in my household)

 

It is first important to note that the word “Fitness” as I refer to it has nothing to do with the modern fitness industry, but rather- the state of our physical-being. That is a culmination of our nutrition, health & well-being (lack of sickness, both mental & physical) as well as the ability to perform challenging physical activities that may present themselves to us in daily life. So it's important that we use every tool at our disposal not just to survive through these months, but use it as a chance to adapt, evolve & THRIVE. Because there are far more ways to move the needle on our “fitness” than mindlessly...

Better Results by Connecting Mind & Body | Part 3

 Mind / Body 

 Motion & Emotion 

Do you think our emotional mood prompts physical changes in our body, or do the physical body changes affect the mind and mood?

This 3 part series- better inputs for better outputs is all about the correlation of what goes into our body & the overall effect that it plays to the human condition- physically, mentally & spiritually.

Read Part 1 and Part 2

 

 

As humans we are a fluctuating reflection of our inputs and it's far more than just what we are eating and drinking. It's what we read, what we listen to, what we watch and who we associate with. So, I want to set down some words indicative of my own personal meditations and experiences on the matter. This is not some ‘power-of-positive-thinking’ fodder. I write this in hopes that it can help you bring awareness to your state of consciousness and how it affects day to day life. Throughout my trials and errors I have found that without...
