Sometimes I get the feeling that people think everything we are experiencing today is new. The reality is, we’re not.
When you’re feeling stressed, anxious and overwhelmed, it’s easy to think you’re fighting this battle alone and nobody has ever felt that way. We’ve all been there at one time or another but I’m here to tell you that a source of inspiration can be found by taking a look to antiquity.
One thing I’ve really focused on lately is HRV ( Heart Rate Variability ). It’s an interesting measure to help analyze recovery, stress levels and fitness.
What HRV is, is a measurement of the time interval between heartbeats and the variation of them. In a basic sense, you don’t want a droning beat that is the same every time. Slight variations are key to a healthy heart rhythm.
The victory is in the journey. You ever wonder why when you achieve a goal you feel a little empty inside? It’s okay to admit it. It might not hit you right away but eventually though the basking in your glory, the accolades and encouragement from your friends and family fades and the trophy, award or medal begins to collect dust.
