It’s March. The February Challenge is over or is it? What did you learn this year? In a perfect world the Challenge wouldn’t be a challenge at all. A slightly modified version of the first five rules should be the way we live just because we value the quality of our lives. We should exercise for an hour everyday, including strength training several times a week. We should sleep 7 hours a night, drink at least 6 glasses of water a day, and yes, eat all of those fruits and vegetables. Our bodies are the incredible vehicles that we travel through life in so why wouldn’t we take great care of them? Why perform like a Minivan when you can perform like a Porsche?
That said, we do get off course, taking detours for one reason or another. I felt like I was driving around potholes most of the month, sometimes for reasons beyond my control. The detours should be expected, but so should getting back on course… because we’re worth it. We perform better when we take care of ourselves.
February was a great month to re-focus. It was a starting point. Now you’ve got the rest of the year to challenge yourself. Be a Porsche!
