A friend had told me about an environmental awareness event at a state park this weekend so I decided it would be a great chance to use one of the great parks. To make the most of attending the event, I decided to go stand up paddleboarding in the park’s spring. After a little SUPing, I went for a hike on one of the trails.
As I came off the trail, the speeches were beginning. A lovely day, a great workout, and I was asleep early last night.
The SAID principle is generally applied to athletes that need to train for a specific sport. Do they need to focus on speed, on power, on endurance? Athletes train on the field and in the weight room for not only their sport, but their specific position.
I have begun to consider how many other areas of life that the SAID principle can be applied.
If I sit on the couch and eat junk all day, my body adapts and becomes really good at coping with that specific habit.
As I meditate more often, my body is becoming more adept at relaxing quickly. I am not carrying stress in my shoulders nearly as much.
Though paddleboarding involves a great core workout, my abs were really sore after returning to the gym’s sit-up chair.
I have heard that many writers write something everyday. Even if it is not directly related to a current project, it can improve writing.
If faking a smile can make you happy, can whining make you more miserable?
I explored a new lake last weekend. It is not as popular with the local stand up paddleboarders as my usual spots, but some do go out there. As the first speed boat passed by, I realized why I was the only paddler there that day. There are very few wake free zones. There were only a few boats out that day, and it is a big lake, so it was not a problem. There was no launch fee, so, I will go back.
I caught this show on the Animal Planet several years ago and look forward to it every Super Bowl Sunday. It started as a low budget and funny way to fill time during the Super Bowl, but has turned into quite a production. Kittens perform at half time.
