By ‘nothing’ I mean not pushing your body too hard.
Context: I am going through a so-called de-loading week or whatever fancy term is being used these days. Might as well call it a recovery week. Reason is I’ve been pushing myself so hard in the gym to the point where I’ve felt genuine exhaustion during practice in a way I didn’t feel it before. Could be overtraining, could be wrong training, lack of proper nutrients, what have you.
I personally think it’s a combination of many factors.
So I test it out with having an off week now.
For a gym rat like me, who’s pretty much walking around in training gear when I’m not out and about, this feels strange. A little uncomfortable as well, admittedly.
But probably very healthy for my body.
Come Monday next week I can’t wait to attack those kettlebells which are currently collecting dust.
Naturally this segues into the territory of preserving physical Energy.
Might as well throw into some lessons of mental Energy as well.
Namely through a video which I saw the other day. Since this is *my* email newsletter I can do pretty much as I please. One of those things is to let y’all know I’m a Pentecostal Christian and sometimes I consume Christian Literature and education. This video was about deeper theological things. I won’t go there right now.
But one thing stuck out like a sore thumb in a rat’s arse.
How the Reverend lost his hearing in one ear instantly overnight and with it came tinnitus.
Naturally that was quite upsetting to him. He had work to do. Not to mention the pain of having that noise in your ear all the time. Also it sucks. So I guarantee you he was scared, nervous and anxious.
I forgot exactly what he said, but later on he lost his hearing on *his other ear* as well. This only lasted for a shorter while, so eventually he gained his hearing back.
Whilst he was giving this story I was mesmerized over his conduct, his calmness and cool.
How losing one’s hearing was kind of the most natural thing in the world.
And it goes to show you what having willpower, discipline, belief and Faith can do to your mental state.
This guy continued with his life, went to meetings and so on, in spite of his hearing being taken away from him.
I bet most ‘tough guys’ be it MMA athletes or footballers couldn’t have done that [I do not recommend doing it either].
Let that be the Energy Lesson of the day.
If you want to learn more about how to build Energy up from naught and generate it out of thin air, then I have the perfect resource for you.
You see, I wrote a book about this whole thing.
The book goes into detail about how what you can do, physically and mentally, to become an Electrifying Persona and make other people around you feel good.
You know when someone walks through a door into a Room and you can feel that the Energy in the air has changed?
Yes, that’s what I’m talking about.
I’m not saying it’s going to be easy and I’m not saying it’s going to take a lot of time.
But I am saying you’ll benefit greatly from it if you apply it correctly.
