Simplify your training and nutrition

so you can get results and enjoy your life, too. 

Why You Need a Good Adventure

Did you know that adventures, hobbies, spirituality, and self-care are also components of your overall success and performance?  I mean, think about it.

If all you do is hyper focused on just one thing like obsessed about your work, obsessed about your fitness, obsessed about your kids, etc.  Those one things are called idols. Idols are destructive to the whole picture, so if you want to perform higher in life, you just can’t if you are hyper focused on just one thing.

You need to experience and schedule adventures in for yourself! It helps to deflate that balloon of stress of yours so you can still enjoy life and live it to it’s fullest.

 

YOU NEED ADVENTURE

You need adventure. It’s important to your joy and performance.  If you say you are too busy for that, then my dear something needs to change.

I forced my husband out of the house this past weekend to go get lost in the woods. To go explore nature somewhere and unplug from technology. He’s a completely different person when relaxing by a fire, hiking in the woods, in nature basically anywhere, in the mountains, or on the beach.

But I have to force myself to do the same.

I just tried mountain biking for my very first time and had a blast! Adventure was exactly what I needed.

ADVENTURE HELPS YOUR PERFORMANCE

On this blog, I write about and help people with training, nutrition, and performance. When it comes to performance, that breaks down into 10 areas that I talk about in this post.

The highest performers around the world aren’t just Olympians and billionaires.  I mean, they can be, but that’s not what makes someone a high performer.   Anyone can become one by practicing a few important habits.  And it goes beyond working obsessed hours to be rich, or training 5-6 days a week and obsessed about your macros to get there.

Yes, it does involve balance.

“Well, Bailey, balance is for the weak,” the extremists may say.

No, balance is for the wise and the strong.  

And anyone can learn it. Read more on how to do so in this post.

10 AREAS OF PERFORMANCE

In those ten areas, adventures is ONE of them.  Your health is ONE of them.  Career is ONE of them.  Spirituality is ONE of them.

It’s done while maintaining, building, and deepening your well-being and relationships, not just your accomplishments.  What good is an accomplishment if you got a divorce in order to achieve it?

Maintain, build, and deepen your well-being and relationships at the same time. You don’t let them fade in order to improve your accomplishments.

Speaking of relationships.  I love that my friend Sandy invited me out and taught me how.   She showed me weight distribution on the bike when ascending and descending hills and features, when to stand and move bike left and right, how to brake, and how to not die when trying new things.

It was just downright good for my soul to experience this adventure and be in nature with such great company.

 

 

 

ADVENTURES ARE GOOD FOR THE SOUL

Do more things that are good for your soul.  Get out in nature. Go on adventures.  Pick up a new hobby.  Allow yourself to rest.  Deepen relationships.  These are all things that nourish our soul, renews our mind, and recharges our body.  You perform better when you do.

You need a good adventure.

It’s part of what helps you be a better person, thing clearly, enjoy life more, and deflate that balloon of yours that’s about to pop.

 

GO GET LOST

So, go do what I just made my husband do.

Go get lost.

He slept so hard that night and had so much peace to unplug like that.

I know people are afraid to travel or restricted to travel, but find something you can do that you feel safe about. Here are some ideas in this post here. 

Whether you drive two hours north to a light house and listen to waves, go wine tasting, build a fire, wander in the woods, just go.

Make it part of your recovery.  God told you to rest for a reason. Go do it, and do it regularly.
