Uh Oh…Ive just been completely bored out of my tiny mind by doing one of those Facebook personality tests thats come up in your Facebook feed..
What a waste of time
However, what gets me more is that so many people believe them
Everything we read on the internet has a source
Theres loads of information out there in inter web land
Diets. Exercises. Meditation. Coaching. Stretches. How to do anything …and how to self diagnose
I’m guilty of putting information out there in the past on my blog
I’ll write about stuff that gets your brain thinking
Searching for answers
But I won’t give you the answers, because I don’t know you personally
If you are searching for the perfect stretch of your hip flexors, your quads, your neck…I will post stuff, useful information, things that will get you thinking , but I wont tell you that its the perfect and only answer for you
Because it won’t
You are unique
Your painful hip may not need stretching, it may be pissed off because some other muscle in its group isn’t pulling its weight, its telling you, but you are still stretching the hell out of it, weakening it, and it keeps coming back telling you off.
If it isn’t working, why are you still doing it?
Do you drive down the wrong road every day expecting it to take you to your destination
Do you eat cake and donuts everyday and never exercise but expect to have the perfect body
Do you never drink water because its boring and wonder why your body refuses to work well for you
Do you stretch your hamstrings and wonder why you are always stretching them
Do you believe the results of the Facebook (other social media sites are also available..) personality tests, even though they have never ever met you or even give a monkeys who you really are?
You have way more intelligence than that
If you don’t, you can change that.
Stop doing Facebook tests and spend that time doing stuff that enriches you
I’m not going to tell you what that is, but I will bore you with what that is for me:
…spend time with my beloved other half
…be nice to myself (and that can be along the lines of going to bed earlier, read a book that teaches me something or helps me switch off from the noise of social media, go for a walk, have a relaxing bath, massage my feet and do my nails, have a facial, do a gentle mobility exercise or two – after all, we say we have no time for ourselves…)
..be generous to others by giving more and expecting less
After all, we tend to expect so much of ourselves and beat ourselves up when we don’t succeed. expecting more from ourselves by pouring more fuel onto the fire…more on that in my next post on what happened when I got stuck on an easy climb yesterday afternoon..yes, I was rubbish, and what that taught me.
Have fun !
