Four Minutes To TwelvePosted: October 16, 2012
All things are difficult before they are easy-
… Strange days have found us
Strange days have tracked us down
They’re going to destroy our casual joys …
Quick test this morning while the tea brews: Say this simple word out loud: “Gratitude “.
Was this hard for you? Did we struggle saying just one little word? For many of us, thinking and passing forward appreciative thoughts is completely natural and something we do on a daily basis. This underlying and authentic appreciation for all “things” good in our lives helps us to not only live longer, feel a little better and most importantly: Creating positive connections with the world around us. Gratitude …
Just as you would cultivate other positive habits, gratitude begins at an early age and needs to nurtured throughout our lives. And NO! It’s never too late to start getting aboard the Gratitude Bandwagon. The ass-hats around you will start to like what they see and hear from you each day.
Where does this leave us? Practice, practice gratitude daily. We are ever so grateful you are here with us today! There, that’s a spiffy start!
If there is one thing to be said about CultFit Readers: Attention to detail is lacking or non-existent at times. So on that note we are going to lay out what the goal is this week, no more beating around the bush. Yes, it is possible to learn to do a proper Push Up without beating the living sh!t out of yourself. Do we need to read this last sentence again?!?
Moving on … A nice flowing Trail Run (or whatever else you choose) with a good friend followed by:
Find a nice comfy spot to stop and face one another in a High Plank Perfect Push Up position (mess around with a Hinge Walk Out to get your distance correct). While looking your partner in the eye, touch your right hand to their right hand then switch and go left to left … criss cross applesauce works as well. This is not a contest!!! Continue alternating hands/arms until both of you are too tired to go on.
Remember you have to Run back home?!?
Don’t worry peeps, we are grateful you made it this far into the post! Be well today and ENJOY!!!
