When people first come to BioFeedback training, they utilize it in order to improve in the gym. But if they come to our courses, they learn that this approach to improvement isn’t relegated to the gym. Improvement is for everywhere.
In our BioMechanics 2 course, we show gym rats that they can be athletes. In BioMechanics 3 course, we demonstrate that pain and injury can be temporary. In our BioChemistry course, we show that the dynamism of what made us is required in the nutritional (and beyond) daily remaking of us. And in our BioPsychology course, we show that there are far more opportunities for progress than we imagined.
In this article, we’re going to be drawing from all our courses. We’re going to show you all of the areas you can make progress in. And in doing so, hopefully you’ll learn that progress isn’t just a part of life…progress can be your life.
Your body isn’t what it used to be. For some, that’s a good thing. For most, it’s not.
For too many of us, the height of our physical abilities peaked somewhere between high school and college. And they have been periodically declining since. We’re treat a life sentence like a death sentence.
What we teach in THE MOVEMENT is the closest thing to a fountain of youth. We show that while time can’t be reversed, movement and all its qualities can be regained…and advanced. What movement would do if you knew you’d eventually be able to do it? Sounds like it’s time for you to improve.
There’s something physical you’ve always wanted to do. Maybe it’s run a marathon, summit a high peak, learn ballroom dancing or dunk a basketball. But there’s always been something that’s held you back.
For whatever reason you’ve bought into an antiquated understanding of aging. You don’t get old and stop moving. You stop moving and get old.
You watch videos of people on YouTube and wish you could do what they do. With enough practice, you can. With enough time, you can.
Break down big skills into small skills. Practice small skills and put them together. Do this until they’re big skills.
Time is going to pass anyway. Your time is going to pass anyway. You might as well improve.
You’re impaired. Maybe at one point you were injured. But only a part of you was healed.
You’re no longer in pain. But now you tell yourself you’ve got a bum knee or a bad back. Knees that don’t move against resistance with speed will eventually be bad. Backs that don’t support load and move every way they can will eventually go out.
The body has an amazing healing capacity. But not doing something because it hurt in the past isn’t healing. It’s avoiding. Work your way back to what you could do before. But don’t stop there. Then do more than you’ve ever done before.
Your body doesn’t look how you want it to look and you think your diet has something to do with it. And it does. So you stop eating the same old things you’ve always eaten and start eating new things.
And it works for a while. You think it’s working because you’re eating healthier. But what if that wasn’t why?
What if it’s working because it’s different and your body needs different from time to time. In our BioChemistry course, we teach this…but take it to a whole other level. It’s not as much that you need different…you’re needs are different…all the time.
If you’re not looking how you want to look, diet is likely playing a part in that. But what’s playing a biggest part is you telling your body what it needs…not asking it what it needs. If you’re stressed, you may need something more predigested or what others call “processed.” And if you’re feeling well, you may be craving more whole foods.
The problem isn’t just how your body looks. But the solution is to connect your dietary actions with your dietary sensations. And this is another time to improve.
You’re not happy. You’re not happy with your life. You may think the issue is with the way you feel. Or you may think it’s with the way you act. You’re right.
There’s nothing wrong with being unhappy. So called “negative” feelings inform our actions. But there is something wrong if we’re unhappy all the time.
In our BioPsychology course, we teach that no matter the issue, whether we don’t like the way we feel or don’t feel or we don’t like the way we’re acting or not acting, the key is to re-connect our actions with our sensations. We have to know how we feel. We have to know what actions are appropriate. We have to find what of these actions we can take.
No matter what problem we have, whether it be more mechanical, chemical, or psychological, we can improve upon it. But how to improve is the critical factor. Know how you feel. Know how to act. And act where you can…and improvement is guaranteed.
