core as posture, body is 24 hours (not 1)
[ work on the positions you're in most often, first ]
- ineffective use of time
- small return on investment
- lack of foundation being built
- solution: (the common thread)
- make the time spent transfer to daily life
- Building/investing into a retirement (longevity) account
- (having an emergency fund)?
body finance - energy as currency
There's a belief (in the name of health), that exercising an hour most days of the week, will ensure we've done enough - some cardio, some weights, general activity and we're probably good enough. But if we really want to improve something about ourself and create a change - is 1% of our day enough?
[When we are in the first two categories - moving to move] the typical workout tends to function as a simple debit and credit system of our daily energy expenditures. Some days we don't spend much energy at all and others we might be inclined to max out our credit line. Over time a trend is created, representative of three directions- maintenance, debt or surplus.
Due to the gradual nature of change and a highly adaptable body, we can normalize less and less energy, without ever realizing that it has decreased. This adaptable system is what allows us to keep spending energy where we want to and we only notice it on the days that feel particularly hard.
if time is money - body finance
If time is money, then we need to carefully evaluate how we're spending it in regards to our health and fitness goals, especially if we only have a small amount to spend infrequently.
Invest your time well, especially if it's limited. Every penny can count.
