Working Out and I have an interesting history that’s not always a picture of perfect mental health. But I’ve come a long way in my recovery and I know I need to stay active.
If the body is just a vessel for the soul, then appearance of the vessel isn’t relevant. Staying active is much more meaningful than altering the vessel’s looks.
Staying active helps bring the soul to life. It energizes the soul’s values and life force. It also keeps the vessel strong and healthy, which allows the soul more opportunities to explore and live life.
That being said, I’ve not been very active lately. But hey, gotta start somewhere, right?
This is what I did today with my broken finger:
100 jumping jacks
90 high knees
80 side hops
70 jump rope (no rope)
60 standing toe touches
50 butt kicks
40 hip abduction (20 per)
30 chair squats
20 walking lunges
10 frog jumps
On the floor! (AHS 1984 Montana Voice)
100 flutter kicks
80 ab bike (spine crunch) 😬
70 laying toe touches (there’s probably a legit name for this I’m unaware of)
60 laying hip abduction L
50 ^ R
40 oblique crunches 20 per
30 second plank L elbow
20 second plank R
10 sit ups
Barefoot walk with my pups for a cool down
You know what else is a soul boost? A playlist full of feels. Feels and metal.
