Play paleo…..a hot topic in the paleo world, a hot topic in our world!
Why? Because quite simply we don’t do enough and in doing that, we forget who we are and why we are here…
Take a moment and look into your life: when was the last time you caught yourself having fun, stepping inside the moment and really loving it? Life is like this “smorgasbord” of delights, a garden of play; and things happen good and bad but the world keeps turning and the sun keeps rising, sometimes we just stop paying attention?
And so to conventional exercise for burn fat, you move through the gym: waiting for the guy in front to move on from the “pec” deck so you can throw in a dozen more reps, praying the guy ahead wipes the sweat off the cross track machine which is dripping and trying not to get impatient waiting again for woman to finish up on the cross bar. And this becomes our play. Our down time: controlled, defined movement, in a box (dull, boring). Hey open the door!
“One of the unintended consequences of decades of terrible health advice (eat low fat foods, avoid red meat and saturated fat, do endless cardio on machines while indoors) is that being healthy becomes miserable drudgery. Good health and diet should be joyous and life affirming, if it isn’t we are doing it wrong.” – J Stanton Gnolls
Here at Paleo Works that quote has become our defining Self, who knows it may become our slogan.
But play is not defined, its free from form, not structured but unlimited..don’t treat it like exercise because it’s not..and goodness knows we spend too long in this life abiding by the rules of others! This play time is for you. Get outside your comfort zone, lighten up! Play Paleo is about Dancing, running, skipping, climbing rocks and trees, chase your loved ones (young and old) watch their faces smiling back at you when you catch them – it’s priceless..
So this is simply a short article to urge you to get outside of yourself, to lift your eyes up a little higher (off the pavement may be) and move. But most of all to have fun doing it.
