I want to be conscious of time. Time is the most impactful thing I can focus on.
But it is not the most fundamental aspect of my life.
My physical body is my absolute foundation. Without it I can’t even experience time.
Time retains my focus because even my body has a limited amount of time before it’s gone.
And I pay attention to my body in terms of time – what effect can I have upon my body over time? How much time have I spent on my body? What can i expect from my body at this age? In 10, 20, 30 years? If I work out intensely this month what will my body feel like next month?
Indeed getting my body in shape is essential for my personal fulfillment. I can’t get higher on the curve without being very fit. Fitness creates physical energy for me and allows me to do and enjoy more in life. It creates mental and spiritual energy also.
Conversely, when I fail to invest in my body, the rest of my life doesn’t work. My curve drops and it’s hard to climb back up.
Pay attention to your body. Without it you have no access to time.
