Back in the mid to late 90’s, I began learning that if I was going to be working out and training, I needed to also workout my mind.
It just seemed natural to me. A cycle began: working out made me feel more confident, then I would used that feeling to do some brain training, which would further increase my confidence and so on.
My confidence was built just like I would build my muscles.
Committing to external workouts is simple, yet it can be hard to execute if you aren’t scheduling your ‘work-ins’ as well.
What is a work-in? It's just like it says; working on your inner. Working out is working on your outer (at least that’s why most people begin), although I’ve believed for a long time that working out physically is more for your brain than anything else.
Back to the concept of working in.
If you have a system of set time to work on your inner strength, then making the time for your physical exercise becomes easy, because you are staying focused and committed to living your best life, becoming the best dad that you can be.
There are multiple ways to train the brain and they should all be done. But one is better than none.
And yes, you have the time for this, it's just a matter if you would rather invest your time in screen time or working on your inner strength.
Yes, screen time, for the most part, the way it is largely used, makes you more dumb and weakens your brain.
I like to start my day with my main work-in, that way life doesn’t ‘get in the way’.
You may be wondering what a work in looks like and that is something that we have in the form of the Ripped Dads Morning Routine.
Without boring you, know that the ears are essential for strengthening your brain, making the brain uncomfortable is essential and increasing blood flow is essential.
No details in this article, I just wanted to plant the seed. Seed (thought), leads to inner dialogue which will lead to you inquiring for more, taking action or not.
