Main topic

Why is the man’s body important to living a relaxed male lifestyle?

The body is where you are at. Yeah, you are also in your mind but your body represents who you are. Are you fat or just slightly pudgy? Maybe you are a bean pole. How we look is important and tells the world a lot of what we think of ourselves.

So your body is also about your health. This means getting your body in shape helping you to find the love you need for yourself. You want to exercise because you want to honor your body. It also helps you live longer.

We abuse our bodies so much and don’t show it the respect we need to show. So there is a change in ourselves we need to make if we want to be successful and prosperous.

Treating our bodies right helps also show our sons what it means to take care of ourselves. You show them that nothing is easy but the results are worth it.

Why is your health so important

You have a better life.

Your life is better when you are healthy. Now I didn’t say it was perfect but it is worth it. You have a better outlook on life and you see the possibilities in a clearer mind.

You think clearer

Yes, your mind isn’t as jumbled up with all the mess and extra thinking when you have a healthy body., Your body carries oxygen better which helps you think better. You don’t have as many constricted capillaries that allow the blood to flow even easier. This in turn helps keep your blood pressure down.

We need controlled violent activities

Men have this crazy chemical in our systems called Testosterone, and it is what causes us to have denser muscles and other attributes. One thing about testosterone is that it needs to be burned off. To burn it off men have to have controlled violent activities. This is why boys can concentrate better after exercise. Boys often have way more energy than what they know what to do with. So they burn it off by running and jumping and daring each other to try crazy challenges.

As a grown man we have the same problem yet if we don’t use it up we produce less. So it is a case of use it or loses it. So this is why Jujitsu or some other activity is needed for us men. That is why if you want to have more testosterone it is actually good to just go out in the back and throw a heavy rock around the yard. Do something more than just a leisure walk. Do aggressive pushups or run some bleachers. So something in a more aggressive form.f

It helps you live longer

With better health is a better heart. A better heart gives you a healthier mind. With all this, you have a chance to live your life to its fullest.

You have less stress

When you have used up all your excess energy you don’t have the reserves to apply to stress. That stress is often just penny up energy that comes in the form of stress. When you aren’t thinking as clearly your mind thinks up other things to worry about.

Proves that hard work is worth it

When you work out all the time you see the change in your body. That change isn’t instant but one day you look and suddenly you have muscles in places you never knew you have muscles

Discomfort doesn’t kill you but it makes you stronger.

You find out that those sore joints and muscles won’t kill you yeah they are uncomfortable but you press through it and you find that you are better for it.

Now I am going to be doing the 75Hard by Andy Frisells’s 75hard program. This is where for the next 75 days I will do some rather challenging tasks. You may not think they are hard when you see them but I have heard many people quit and I hear my mind making up excuses right now as to why I can’t do it. So I am ready. Are you join me and we will get over this hump together.

Join me by starting here. If you are interested in making a group where we can support each other let me know.
