  • The 5 Minute Exercise That Changed My Life

    Hey guys!

    3 months ago I did a a 5 minute exercise that really helped me who I wanted to become, and the way I wanted to live my life.

    While it doesn't directly relate to living primal, this exercise was one of the catalysts towards starting to take my nutrition even more seriously and crank up my training another notch.

    I know a lot of you would enjoy and benefit from this exercise, so I decided to share it with you.

    Check it out and let me know what you came up with! The 5 Minute Exercise That Helped Me Figure Out My Life |

    That's actually kinda cool. I was expecting some kind of mega spam for some kind of fitness machine meant to workout one's entire body in five minutes leaving them totally spent and increasing their muscle mass by at least 10%. (assuming they survived the exercise)

          I did something similar to this about a month ago and it was truly a turning point. I'm now going to school to get an MS in Nutrition (after being out of school for 14 years!) to finally pursue a career that really interests me. Now someday I will be able to say that I truly helped people rather than spending my life pushing paper around just because it was the easiest path.

            @Daemonized: Yeah re-reading what I wrote I can totally see how you would think that. But no no, this is the real deal, not trying to sell anything to anyone- just make my own small positive contribution to the world

            @quelsnen: I think just being aware of that fact is already a great step forward. Now you can start taking real strides in changing the mental models you've been running all these years. Happiness is not a destination, it's a state of mind brother Good luck with your journey, and congrats on the weight loss!

            @jennf: Thanks for sharing, super inspiring! Good luck with the Master's Degree & all your other projects!

                  I did this exercise a few years ago in a Project Management Course but I had forgotten about it. It is a powerful exercise and one that I may be more able to follow through with today than I was back then.

                  Thanks Phil!
                  There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.

                  My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

                        This saddens me a little because I think about what I might say at my grandmother's funeral (on the fence btwn hoping she lives longer and hoping she can die comfortably at this point; she has accepted whatever comes). All good things, of course, but it's hard to think about. It's actually just hard to pick what to say without sounding cliche and repetitive!

                        I will have to give this a try. I tend not to dream that big, out of fear that it will not come to fruition, but since I won't be there to hear my eulogy, nobody can shatter this dream

                          Wow, I did this exercise and boy, do I ever have a long ways to go. There's a lot of changing in my life that still needs to happen. So much I want to accomplish and haven't even begun to take action. It takes me back to high school when I made a list of things I wanted to accomplish as an adult. My current reality is not too shabby, but certainly not what I planned for myself. Time to do better.
                          I'm retraining and strengthening my taste buds, one primal meal at a time.

                            Thanks for posting. When I reflected on this it reminded me about parts of myself that I had forgotten in the midst of health issues, kids, family and just ordinary living.
