With any problem in the spine or extremities, it is important to create balance and symmetry in the joints. However, most people want to take a more proactive approach with their healing with some at-home exercises.
This video highlights the first concept that we use to increase blood flow, decrease pain, and increase the healing response in damaged tissue. It is called “MASHING”.
It may seem “cheesy” or “cliche”, but what you tell yourself is what you get out of yourself.
And I already hear you… “I know, I know, I know. Let’s move on to the next topic.”
Critical error, folks; CRITICAL ERROR!
If you want the long version, get Jen Sincero’s book, “You are a BADASS.” Awesome book to give, get, listen to, or read. And if you actually understand and apply the concepts, life gets a hell of a lot easier simply because you push your thoughts to a different level.
Short Version – Your thoughts formulate your actions which dictate your reality and progress into your future.
Shitty thoughts = Shitty future
Random thoughts = Random future
Intentional positive and productive thoughts = Intentional (Predictable) positive and productive future.
This doc-cast hits somewhere in between the long and short version and discusses modifications to your thinking regarding improving your physical future.
Good luck and remember… You are a Badass! #keepmoving #keepunderstanding
I hear this all the time. Not to throw my kids or my patients under the bus, but it is a recurring theme with respect to progression.
Too often we look at the task of accomplishing our goals and frame it in the context of degree of difficulty rather than amount of effort. We would rather seek comfort from proclaiming it too difficult, as opposed to acknowledging the amount of effort the particular task will take.
Hey, I do it too. We are creatures governed largely by the power harnessed within electricity. And we know that electricity follows the path of least resistance. Unfortunately that doesn’t work with accomplishing big goals. In actuality, it destroys much of the capability to achieve any goals, regardless of size.
But if we flip the script, and look at our issues as a matter of effort. If we realize that there is a finish line; a certain and defined amount of effort necessary for task completion, we can then take our first step. We can initiate a course of action that redirects our electrical power toward something worth achieving. We can chip away at the amount of effort it takes to dominate our future.
Remember, nothing is hard… but, certain things do require more effort.
Embrace the grind, fall in the love with the progression, and achieve the tasks and goals that are most important to you.
