Did you know that our muscles secrete molecules into our body that act like antidepressants, BUT, they only do this while we are contracting them!! Watch this:
This is an awesome discovery and explains so much about the link between exercise, mental health and personal resilience.
I got to over 35% body fat by October 2022. COVID life trauma, stress, life on the road, culminated in me being more concerned about my external world (earning money mostly) than my internal world.
I knew I had to do something. Intent and execution are two very different things!!
I finally got my shit together and made the most difficult step – starting on 1st October 2022!
This photo is me on the 1st July 2023 at 4am just before I did a 10km row and 1000 calories on an assault bike in just under 2 hours, basically a half marathon for someone who has the knees of a 90 year old 😀
If you are struggling with issues at work, start by contracting your own muscles a lot everyday. It will put your brain in the best possible state to solve problems sustainably. Just start.
Big shout out to my Super Coach and great mate Jason Clark. A meticulous blend of loving empathy and hellish resolve!
