Years ago, I smeared at simplicity. If something was going to improve my wellbeing, I figured, it had to be complex and hard to come by. But with age one learns to value the simple things in life, and more often than not it’s precisely the naïve routines and habits that cultivate a well-balanced lifestyle.
My fiancé is a fitness machine. He can do his garden variety of impressive stunts, and looks like a freaking roman statue. Me? I am different in many ways. I like to keep duck-tape solutions in my back pocket. If more can be done with less, I’m game.
The importance of our biological nature has seen a sharp decline of late. And for obvious reasons – the pace of life accelerates at a rapid clip, and we are neglecting our body at the expense of unhealthy choices and habits.
Being bound by biological needs food accounts for most of the processes happening inside our body. And it can both serve as a fuel or toxin depending the way you leverage it.
Translated in vernacular it can keep you young, making your body function like it is supposed to, providing infinite health benefits and keeping you away from disease; or, at the opposite end of the spectrum, be the chief cause of certain diseases and conditions.
We all try, more or less, to improve our fitness level. To change our routine in fitness, add diversity, add myriad of exercises and approaches in the pursuit of the next level in fitness.
And while we relentlessly try to do that, we are, in fact, ignorant to an extent about what our body needs. And I’m not speaking about needs in the terms of supplementation, but rather an altogether natural replenishment, and even prevention to some conditions that may occur while we put our body under additional stress.
