Art, Intrinsic Motivation, and Fatherhood

leave a comment »

 

My daughter is home from her first semester from college.   Her current lifestyle isn’t as active as it was (former competitive cheerleader) and she asked for some assistance.  I’ve set up a workout and nutrition plan for her while she’s home and when she returns to school.    It includes non-stop combinations that don’t require alot of equipment, include:  TGUs, Windmills, Deadlifts, Pushups, Sprints.

I also took some time to discuss  some of my ideas on fitness and health:

PHILOSOPHY

Keys to remember

  • If someone gave you a priceless piece of art – what would you do to preserve and insure it?   Your body is a piece of priceless art that was given to you.  Look for the beauty within and upon yourself as much as you do in the objects you see around you (nature, museums, actors, entertainment, Tiffany earrings, etc). You only get one body in this lifetime – you are its curator;
  • The current standard in our society of “normal” is: obese, self-indulgent, wasteful and inactive.  Avoid normalcy;
  • No one else will truly appreciate or support the work (sacrifice, time and effort) you put in to maintain your fitness, health and beauty – but the rewards are immeasurable and lasting.
  • If one can achieve a high degree of intrinsic motivation in any activity – things begin to unfold naturally and what might seem like work becomes play and the difficult becomes effortless.
