In a world of waiting in line for your next mocha frappuccino, with babies crying, cell phones ringing and the crowd swarming chaos, I believe one must find what I refer to as “primal solace.” This inner peace comes from something engrained deep within our psyche that has been there since the beginning of man. For some, this peace is rarely realized between the emails, board meetings, kids soccer practices and late night TV shows. For the lucky ones who obtain it, the thirst for more is never truly satisfied.
What am I talking about, you ask? Well, the answer may be found in many different ways. Some take joy playing a sport or running free on the field of competition, while others may find peace through yoga practice or a hike through the mountains. Further still, one may truly “find themselves” while up against a personal record, underneath a loaded bar of heavy iron during a challenging training session. No matter what form it takes, one similarity remains true: you must move your body and challenge yourself physically and mentally by getting up and flowing against the current of what can sometimes be the mindless day to day. Seize the day for yourself and make of it what you want it to be.
