What does your body mean to you?

A question: what type of sheets do you use on your mattress? Did you buy the cheap 20 thread count, or did you save your pennies and buy the 300 plus thread count? Why do I ask? If you’re getting an average of 8 hours of sleep per night, that means you’ll spend one third of your entire life in bed. Why not make it the best experience you can?

I’ve seen a few internet memes that say something to the effect of: “Being fat is hard, being fit is hard. Chose your hard.” It’s a good point, but not quite right. Getting fit is challenging, no matter where you started from. But being fit, staying fit is a blast. The difference between a fit person and one who is not is perspective.

As far as I’m aware, we only get one body per lifetime–chalk it up to the limitations of humanity. Every second of every day for your entire life, you must live within your body. Even if you spend one cumulative hour every day eating or snacking, you spend an even better part of your life NOT eating. And if you spend one hour every day working out, you’re still spending even less time NOT working out. But those two hours of eating and working out shape the rest of your life experience in your body.

So, which would you rather? Spend an hour working your body into the body of your dreams, the one you want to live in for the rest of your life? Or would you rather neglect that hour and live in a body you’re less than satisfied with? It’s all in your perspective. 20 thread count or 300.
