After going through the ups and downs of Biggest Loser at work and reading The Seven Spiritual Laws of Superheroes by Deepak Chopra with Gotham Chopra, I’ve rethought the content and organization of this blog. As Chopra wrote, “superheroes are anchored in total clarity… They integrate good habits of physical and mental health.” The books is framed under the four levels of existence that superheroes can integrate :
- being – finding “unshakeable stillness in ourselves amid the turbulence and chaos of the world around us”
- feeling – “being absolutely precise in our actions and not getting distracted by toxic impulses that disempower us”
- thinking – realizing that there all problems can be solved by creativity, “in alignment with our highest ideals and values like truth, goodness, harmony, and spiritual evolution”
- doing – “emerging from those more reflective stages and being action oriented… responsive to feedback, decisive and wiling to take calculated risks”
With this in mind, I want the definition of fitness to be more holistic.
Going forward, I’m going to pursue quests in three different areas:
- Mental – through reflection and constant learning
- Values – through ways to understand the why of what I do
- Physical – through regular exercise and healthy eating
To be continued… on how an everyday woman powers up.
There is no other solution to man’s progress but the day’s honest work, the day’s honest decisions, the day’s generous utterances and the day’s good deed.
