When I was a young child, I never thought to myself that I need to workout or get some exercise. Yet, I was almost constantly moving, playing, and getting lots of so-called exercise. If I found a stick, I found a way to use it. A wall, a ball, or just a patch of grass were all reasons to play and use my body. Not with the intention of exercising or getting healthier or losing weight or looking good or anything like that. Simply because I’m alive. It’s no different today at the age of 37. Why should it be?
If as an adult you find yourself not feeling as youthful, energetic and alive (without a cup of coffee), happy, etc, then what is different about now compared to when those things seemed more natural and easier? It’s not just the responsibilities, work, age, or similar excuses people use... we all have that to deal with. It’s the approach. The outlook. The accumulated choices (or forfeiting of choices). The priorities. The psychological drama. I’ve never, ever regretted going outside to play. Never regretted laughing genuinely. Never regretted investing time to learn something new. Neve regretted sweating and tiring myself out from simply playing. Never regretted getting a few bumps, bruises, or grass stains because I went outside to play in the backyard.
It’s the fountain of youth. Drink up.
