I’ve Let My Mind (and Body) Go
Hi, there, how are ya? It’s been a long time.. in the words of the Eagles.
A quick refresher. My name is Tim Day. Radio dude (program director and afternoon guy at Big Dog 92.7 in Regina) and a kettlebell practicioner.
I’ve let a few things go.. my body (it’s been a while since I’ve picked up a kettlebell and I’ve added a few pounds over the last few months) and my mind. The two are completely connected in my humble opinion. I’ve long been a believer that exercise will reduce stress and anxiety. But I’ve also discovered if you struggle with stress and anxiety it’s a challenge to pick up that weight or run that 5k.
Over the past few months I’ve hardly touched a bell for a number of reasons, but I’m working on getting back to that. One of the paths I’m taking is a scientifically proven method that takes as little as ten minutes a day. That’s it… ten minutes.
I think for a long time people kind of poo-pooed it as hippy and a guy or gal sitting cross-legged on a mountain top in a silk robe. Not the case.
By the way, it’s not easy. It LOOKS easy, but it’s not easy. In the video below it’s mentioned that meditation is like reps in a bicep curl. And while you try to get the eighteen inch guns, it doesn’t happen overnight. Neither does exercising the brain. It takes a lot of work, after all, I’ve let my brain go on it’s own for nearly fifty years… it ain’t gonna happen overnight.
I’m combining my mediation with some hip therapy exercises and Young Living Essential Oils from Health Happens. It’s all helping.
Watch this clip. It’s six and half minutes and worth it.
