The Foundation of Peak Performance



THE MIND OR BODY CANNOT BE AT FULL HEALTH AND VITALITY WITHOUT THE OTHER

Your body is merely an instrument of your mind. What your mind thinks, feels and attaches emotion to creates the physical action you apply with your body. Once you take that physical action with your body, your mind then thinks, feels and attaches emotion to that accordingly. It’s a never ending cycle and unfortunately, a cycle most people get caught up in everyday. This affects our outlook on life, our physical body's health and well-being, the quality of our relationships and the destination of our careers amongst other things.
What we need is a formula to be able to instantaneously change our state and get back on track.

MOVE. SHAPE. CREATE.


 


Principle #1

MOVE YOUR BODY


The first principle to create the life you’ve always desired is to MOVE YOUR BODY. Apart from the obvious health benefits you gain from moving your body; your mind’s state, or mental outlook on situations, circumstances and internal reasoning is governed by how you move your body.
Think of it for a moment, have you ever had a really stressful day, you can’t think straight, you feel low on energy and tired mentally and can feel yourself getting more and more irritable by the second? Of course you have, we all have, but think now, how have you ever changed that?
I bet you’ve had a time when you’ve felt all of the emotions and feelings above, but then gone to the gym for example, had a real blast, got a good sweat on, absolutely smashed it, and come out feeling re-invigorated. You’re high on energy, your mental tiredness has subsided and you feel pumped both physically and mentally! Why is that? What changed?
Apart from the fact you’ve obviously changed your physical state from MOVING YOUR BODY, what that has done is created a shift in your mental state also. The stresses and worries you felt before are now manageable.

Why? Because the way you MOVE YOUR BODY governs HOW YOU FEEL and the EMOTIONS you experience.
Think of a time you were sad or depressed. How did you look? Head down, shoulders rounded and slumped over, zero energy, shallow breathing. How about when you felt happy and excited? How did that look? Head up, shoulders back and posture upright, high on life, breathing deeply, appreciative, in the moment. The way you move your body dictates how you feel, which dictates your emotion, and therefore your actions and behaviours. This is the link. This is how we see that, the way we MOVE, DIRECTLY AFFECTS how we achieve our highest goals.
By MOVING YOUR BODY, you are giving yourself a foundation to build upon to create the life you desire. With this as a basis, you are then able to SHAPE and CREATE your life to exactly what YOU desire.
NOTE: ‘MOVE‘ has been a specific term used as opposed to exercise, fitness or other generic terms as the importance of MOVING your body outweighs the need to exercise. Movement of your body differs with each individual. For someone it may be walking 2k, for others is may be completing a triathlon. For some it is Yoga, for others it’s gym. It is worth noting however, the higher the intensity (this doesn’t always mean physically intense), the greater levels of mental state change that occur, but this SHOULD NEVER be compared with anyone else. Your goals and your current physical state is all you need to focus on. If your moving, your laying the foundation. If you have laid the foundation, you’re ready to start to SHAPE your mind to CREATE a life on your terms.
