Happiest hiker

If you zoom in you can see Granite Park Chalet.

The happiest hiker in Glacier is anyone who makes up their mind to be the happiest they can be at any moment.

All day.

Every day.

Every trail.

You don’t have to be happy on the trail. Or, you can be the happiest hiker on the trail. Over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore, a simple salutation for example. Saying hi to everyone you pass will bring joy to you in ways you never knew were possible.

My research has shown that only 1% of oncoming hikers say hello, but 99% respond when you initiate a hello.

The power of relentless care

The power of relentless care.

  • Regular exercise.
  • Decent sleep habits.
  • Balanced nutrition and portions.

When you relentlessly view these three as your non-negotiables, you can clearly see how this benefits you over the course of your life.

What Springsteen says

Gearing up for the comeback…four pairs of New Balance running shoes arrived yesterday.

Still having foot and ankle pain, however, after sufficient warmup, it disappears.

This is progress.

i love to run.

Our bodies are made to do it.

Baby, we were born to run.

Watch children play and say it’s not so.

Focus on what you have

The morning we left campus. Yesterday, in fact.

Focus on what you have.

Don’t focus on what you don’t have.

Seems ridiculously obvious.

It is, however, a rare character trait.

Lean into rare.

You have a body.

A marvelous temple housing everything keeping you alive.

Focus on this precious, amazing, exquisite masterpiece.

Behave like your life depends on it

Behave like your life depends on it.

Why?

Because it does.

Imagine having great habits and rituals for activity, nutrition, and sleep.

Imagine maintaining this physical vibrancy for years, or longer.

Now envision it being stripped away forever.

When you are part of something that’s worth defending, you are onto something remarkable, and admirable.
