The other day I was listening to the podcast from the Accidental Creative. In this particular podcast Todd Henry talked about Creative Inversion. Creative Inversion is described as a time when you are trying to be creative when you lack material that is inspiring you. One step that Todd mentions to overcome this inversion is to get outside for at least 30 minutes and explore things that inspire you. As I listened to the podcast I begin to think on how this could be applied to our health. People often about eating healthier and the need to exercise but there is no action.
It’s not what we know, it’s what we do.
Everyone knows they should do some sort of exercise more often.
Everyone knows they should eat healthier.
But it is in the doing that you get results.
You stay up late to watch the end of the game or to see who beats out who in the latest reality TV show which makes you too tired to get up early in the morning to exercise or have time to cook real food. How does this help you accomplish your health-related goals?
You pay extra money for the best clothes, the nicest furniture, the coolest car, to have the latest gadget, or to have the most channels to watch. Yet, you buy the cheapest foods you can find. You buy all the prepackaged and processed junk to save you time and money. How does this help you accomplish your health-related goals?
It is not what you KNOW that will help you accomplish your goals, it is what you DO.
What can you do to turn what you know into results?
