Play Paleo, a hot topic in the paleo world, a hot topic in our world!
Take a moment and look into your life: when was the last time you caught yourself having fun, forgetting your responsibilities and truly stepping inside the moment and really loving it? Life is like this “smorgasbord” of delights, a garden of play; and things happen good and bad but the world keeps turning and the sun keeps rising, sometimes we get caught up in ourselves and we just stop paying attention.
And so to conventional play and "best" exercise for burn fat. You move through the gym after a hard day at work: a bit formulaic, a bit steady: waiting for the guy in front to move on from the “pec” deck so you can throw in a dozen more reps, praying the guy ahead wipes the sweat dripping off the cross track machine and trying not to get impatient waiting again for woman to finish up on the cross bar. And this has become our play. Our down time: controlled, defined movement, in a box (dull, boring). Hey open the door!
"One of the unintended consequences of decades of terrible health advice (eat low fat foods, avoid red meat and saturated fat, do endless cardio on machines while indoors) is that being healthy becomes miserable drudgery. Good health and diet should be joyous and life affirming, if it isn't we are doing it wrong." - J Stanton Gnolls
Here at Paleo Works that quote has become our defining Self, who knows it may become our slogan.
But play is not defined, its free from form, not structured but unlimited..don’t treat it like exercise because it’s not..and goodness knows we spend too long in this life abiding by the rules of others! This play time is for you. Get outside your comfort zone, lighten up! Play Paleo is about dancing, running, skipping, climbing rocks and trees, chasing your loved ones (young and old) watching their faces smiling back at you when you catch them – it’s priceless..
Play Paleo: what makes you feel free?
