Having your Health…or not? #IYP ‘Longevity’
It is all about Longevity, the long haul, we talk it all the time our health through longevity!~
Do you remember the feeling the morning…or afternoon after a bad bender out on the town when we consume way way to much alcohol?
Do you remember the words you told yourself NO better yet swore to yourself??…well I do every single time I felt that way, which seemed to be a least every other weekend in my late teens and early 20’s. Those words were ‘phuck this I am never drinking again!!’
Ok so I just wanted to get some context for the session at hand here…that feeling. Sick, no energy, no ambition, no life, no drive, no care, just sleep, no motivation, nothing…just basically trying to hold on until it passes…correct, ok you dig the vibe I’m throwing down- so this ties in with my rant today about our health.
Its been a hot hot minute since I can remember being sick, and this time I mean a cold, a virus, flu…not the self inflicted type! It is so true how quickly we forget or take for granted our health….until we…don’t have it. Speaking for myself I work very very hard at maintaining my health, and I understand we are all human and it’s nature’s course that we all fall ill from time to time. I also understand that a messure of our health is how quickly one bounce’s back once you have fallen ill. I think the last time I was sick enought to miss work, the gym and creating content was years ago let’s say at least 2 years ago. So if we use the example of drinking and we understand how bad we feel after that, what I can not understand is why more people are NOT taking care of themselves then actually are taking care of themselves? I am reverse engineering this simply to point out the “FLIP SIDE” here and what I mean by that is this…for me it is rare to not feel good, yet for so so so many people I know it’s the exact opposite. They either rarely feel good or when and if they do they are so not use to it they are unsure of what to do about it.
This little bug took me down for 3 days…and I mean it could have been way worse but I felt; very tired, unmotivated, sluggish, some pain, a soarish throat, no energy, low to no brain function for creativity, phuck all for ambition, and didn’t mind kinda just zooning out (for me that was to heal). Ok now in all honestly and no bull shit here the words I used to describe my little crybaby cold for the last 3 days are what most people live with everyday all day. I even had a client of mine say this to me “get us to this it’s what happen’s as you age”. That statement was the reason I wanted to write this becasue I continue to here this type of horse shit come out of peoples mouth’s…ohh when you turn 25 its all down hill from there…then its 30, then 35…I mean a blame game against age? What I can not grasp though is where we lost our way…I mean when did everything else…and I mean every phucking single thing else become more important than our health?
Skip breakfast or pop something that’s from a box with no nutritional value full of sugar and chemicals in your gut as you fly off to work, then have a coffee break with either a smoke or some kind of doughnut or croissant at the staff meeting, maybe hit the fast food shit whole for lunch which is just more poison, yup another coffee break…(you fill in what comes to mind)…then let’s hit up a pub for drink’s and some type of SHIT pub grub again more poison to round out the work day. Then home time, we wonder why the phuck we have NO energy so we sit in front of the boob tube maybe slam an energy drink before bed, wash that down with something we throw in the microwave…hit the sack and wonder why we can’t sleep…then get up and do it all over again!! This compound effect day after day month after month year after year on our bodies…to me seems criminal.
These are the words I live by; ‘NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS HEALTHY FEELS’. Until you yourself have experienced that… I can not even put into words the feelings, the experience, the power, the movement, the flow, the brain power, the determination, the drive, the satisfaction, the limitless, the energy, the motivation, the gratitude, the gratefulness, strongness…phuck it’s endless what ‘feeling better than you did the day before day after day’ actually is. When I do try to describe it to or explain it to the ‘newbies’ they look at me like I am trying to get them to join my cult. But in all honesty it was the universe that reminded me of what NOT HAVING YOUR HEALTH felt like and through that understanding awareness and compassion that I write this to us all as a wake up call
Without our health we have nothing
