How well do you think a trout would do living in nasty water clouded with fast-food wrappers and cigarette butts? It might eke out an existence but it definitely couldn’t thrive. It couldn’t live as it was designed.
Your soul is like that trout, and your body is the water in which it lives. Fitness isn’t just something for jocks and narcissists; fitness is important for your soul.
Cleaning up the waters of our daily life means cutting out the junk food and exercising daily our cardio, muscles, endurance, and speed. Not just for the sake of our body, but because our body is where our soul resides. We do it to give our soul the healthiest possible dwelling place.
With a body and soul that are both healthy and thriving we are able to positively influence those around us. We’ll breathe easier, sleep better, and be in a better position to help others.
Fitness is a free gift we should all give to our soul.
