If you ask any child about the adults around them, they’d probably say we’re a little wacky and seem to be stressed out a lot of the time. Here are a few simple things they can teach us, and you’ll be surprised how it also matters to your fitness journey.
Nap when you’re tired.
Eat when you’re hungry.
Don’t ever starve yourself, it makes you feel tired and cranky. Eat little bits often to keep fueled up.
Refuse to eat even one more bite once you’re full.
Leave the table with a satisfied, full belly and an eagerness to dive back into your gleeful life.
Be picky and only eat foods you love. If it doesn’t taste great to you, clamp those lips shut and refuse to eat until something better is found.
Be in awe over how amazing and wonderful your body is. Notice how it moves, hugs, plays, loves, heals, and enjoys life.
Run, jump, skip, play. Move your body because it’s so much fun and it feels good. Be amazed at all the incredible physical things your body can do.
Hang out with fun, friendly people and stay away from mean, critical ones.
Feel great about yourself because, well, why wouldn’t you?
So bruh, if you don’t have a two-year old around right now, seek one out. Go ahead and just watch them for a day. Their simple enjoyment of life, and their absolute respect for their own bodies is something you can aspire to.
