10,000 Swings |⁣
⁣
After finishing the 10,000 KB Swing challenge last week, I had planned to make a post with some of the lessons I learned during those 30 days. ⁣
⁣
But as I write this, I’m sitting in the waiting area of a Physical Therapy office while my mother-in-law rehabs her new bionic knee. #cyborg⁣
⁣
As I watch the rehabbers in this facility fight to regain the movement we often take for granted, my reflections on the 10,000 swings shift from accomplishment to appreciation.⁣
⁣
This life we’re enjoying has but one ending, and it awaits each of us. ⁣
⁣
Just like we can’t “beat” meditation, we can’t “beat” life, no matter much we #hustle or hashtag winning. The winning is creating, recognizing and enjoying the meaningful moments along the way, hopefully too many of them to recount on our rocking chairs when we are the ones fighting to hold onto basic movement patterns.⁣
⁣
My thoughts on swings, movement and exercise practices right now:⁣
⁣
1️⃣ Strength/progress doesn’t have to come at a price. We don’t have to destroy our bodies (or minds) in the process of attaining above average capabilities. We can be strong, muscular, capable AND healthy long term - it doesn’t have to be a binary choice - if we focus on integrity on movement rather than competition of rep/WOD/program, etc. (Process-oriented vs. Outcome oriented)⁣
.
2️⃣Celebrate Life and Celebrate Movement. Don’t take movement or health for granted. Every day above ground, every workout is a gift. Movement practices should celebrate and what we can do, not punish us for what we are not, cannot do, or have done. While that mindset of punishing ourselves may get us through short term phases, it’s not aligned with our healthiest selves (mentally or physically) in the long run. I don’t just care how good you are/were. I also want to know how long you did it.⁣

“The lowest form of conversation is ‘remember when’.” - Tony Soprano

Today's BHP Short pulls a valuable lesson from Bruce Springsteen's Glory Days, an iconic song we mistakenly regard as a party anthem at cookouts, tailgates, and other celebrations.  By engaging in this folly, we miss the cautionary message buried in the upbeat, hard-rocking music of this 80's anthem.  The truth is, this song isn't about the good times. Instead, Glory Days is about the passage of time, and how, as more time passes, more of our lives lie behind us.  And for the average person - the characters IN the song and many of the people jamming to that song at a tailgate - their best days are behind them.  My wish for - and challenge to - you is to commit to a life path that ensures your best days lie ahead of you, not behind you.  How sad, frustrating, even depressing it must be to realize that we've peaked, and that our best days are behind us.  This is the reality that awaits those who do not choose the path of growth and development. In choosing that path, our Glory Days sadly become a thing of the past.  No wonder the character in this song is headed down to his local watering hole to drink himself into blissful oblivion.  Alternatively, when we choose to pursue constant growth and evolution, our best days are always ahead of us.  May your Glory Days lie in front of, not behind you.  TUNE IN to today’s @betterhumanproject_ BHP Short Glory Days for a special episode featuring 2 Bosses from New Jersey, @springsteen and Mr. Soprano.
