If you’re working in an office all day long, chances are you’re not getting enough exercise, on top of not getting adequate exposure to daylight (see last week’s post for remedies). The same applies to most people who travel a lot for work. Meaning, you’re missing out on the physical, emotional and mental benefits of moving your body and keeping (or making) it - and your mind (!!!) - flexible and fresh. And making a daily habit of it all.
Your body depends on you making it happen, though! And guess what: the more you get your circulation going habitually, the less you will be freezing in the winter time. By the way, we’re talking about three things here: blood circulation, lymph circulation, and energy circulation (in your energy body that surrounds your physical body).
And no, none of this is new. What is new, or rather "unusual" about my posts is that I practice what I preach. This is no theoretical discussion of something some highly decorated professor thinks could "theoretically" help you. These are things that have worked for me in real life, in situations pretty similar to the challenges you face daily as a "high performance athlete" of the mental realm (i.e. as a high level office worker or entrepreneur).
As Ghandi said "an ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching." I'm a practitioner. Always have been. Always will be. To me, theory can only ever serve as a guideline, to establish a helpful framework when I venture into new areas; the real deal happens when you apply it along with your common sense in real life. Whether that's juggling loads of client money in high finance or improving your health or anything else you aspire to (like passing the CFA exam a few years back for me).
