[Let’s get real… real morbid]
Let’s get morbid… let’s talk big picture here. How many years do you think you have left?
I’m in my early 30s so I’m hoping I’ve got a good 50 years of life left…
If all goes to plan, I’m literally not even half way through my life. Unfortunately, I’ve had some pretty serious injures and lots of pain on and off since I was 20. When my back pain is bad, it’s so debilitating that I can’t think of anything besides ‘how can I make this pain go away?’ So I’ve spent the last 5–6 years focusing on how I can strengthen my body to reduce and remove my pain… I’ve accepted that my old injuries and regular exercise are part of my life now. I’d prefer to train regularly and have no pain, than not exercise at all and give pain a key to my place so it can visit whenever it likes.
But even if you’re in your 40s, 50s or 60s…
I’m hoping you plan to have at least 20–40 years of life left. Even at the smaller end of that scale, that’s a lot of life.So you’ve got some pain, a few injuries or consistent stiffness and soreness? Or you’re overweight, unhappy with how your body looks and feels? Sure I suppose you could look at it and think ‘hey I’ve got 20–50 years of life left in me, I’ve got plenty of time to do something about it’.
True… how bout we flip it around though? Think about the pain and injuries or being overweight, and think about how unhappy it makes you… got it? Now think about living this way for the next 20–50 years, or however much longer your life lasts.
Be selfish for a minute…
because the only person who’s has to live with you every day for the rest of your life; is you!Is this really the life you want for the rest of your life?If it’s not, then do something about it… and do it today!
