Quick little nugget to ponder....

Hello! Here is a piece from Paul Chek that I want you all to really slow down, read, and ponder for a moment. 

"What becomes obvious to professionals with as much experience as Bill and me, or anyone with an open mind who has been paying attention to the diet craze over time, are these truths:

  • There is no optimal diet for everyone!
  • There is no optimal diet for anyone for any period of time, which may be as short as one meal depending on stress factors and environmental influences. (I have found metabolic types can change from meal to meal and that there is no replacement for constant communication with, and careful observation of, one’s body-mind for essential guidance!)
  • A diet that “cures” you may eventually harm you if you don’t pay attention to what your body-mind is telling you. One man’s cure is another man’s disease! Diet dogma is very dangerous.
  • Diet quality is more important than diet quantity."

Now, not here to debate on if this is 100% true or not but regardless it makes sense. Everyday is a new day, a new environment, a new chance to adapt through time. We must pull our heads out of the "camp spectrum" and start to look into the "real food - real nutrients spectrum". This gives you the chance to really find what foods support YOU and when they support YOU best. 

If you'd like to chat about your nutrition simply drop me a message and we can get that going.

Walking Meditation

"Walking is man's best medicine" Hippocrates

"A walking meditation is simply taking the time out for yourself, time to get away from people and phones and break free from the stressors of everyday life to listen to your soul. As you walk, time your breathing to your steps. For example, inhale for four steps, hold your breathe naturally for one step, and exhale for four steps. Adjust your effort so that you don't have to keep changing your breathing. It is a good idea to simply count your steps, emptying your mind of all things other than the step count and breathing until you've mastered the process and it becomes innate. A walking meditation should be no less than 15 minutes. It is best to walk in nature, where you can benefit from the natural earth energies, experience a variety of colors and appreciate life forms in their natural rhythm." Paul Chek

I personally believe as coaches we should be advising people to walk and build a "human being base level of conditioning" before starting a program full of lifting, running, jumping, and sprinting. This is part of what it really takes to truly train GreenStrength - You better be okay with walking, alot! Give the walking meditation a try, you'll find it not only will enhance your mind but it will do wonders on your physique as well.

In Strength,
