Want to see a change this week? Go without.
Folks who know me well know that I practice intermittent fasting. I'll bore you with all of the details later if you want, but it's not always for nutrition/fitness...
Sometimes I'll go 24-48 hours without eating because I can. No, I'm not being a tough guy or anything like that. What I mean by "I can" is this:
I live in a affluent nation where I can choose to go a day or two without food.
I can go a day or two without food because I know that when I'm ready, I can find something to eat.
I can choose to go to bed hungry.
I can choose to wake up hungry.
I can choose to go to work hungry and I can choose to train in the dojo hungry.
I can choose to do this. For literally millions across the globe, the idea of going to bed hungry or going to work/school hungry is a way of life...not a choice. So sometimes I like to put myself in their shoes (as much as I can) and feel what it's like to go without.
Note...I'm not a doctor so I can't recommend you to fast for an extended period of time; especially in our litigious culture. However, I can say that going without (food, or technology, or your car, or something) can be a deeply emotional and spiritual endeavor.
Is there something that you can go without, for just a day or two this week that would be a meaningful sacrifice?
You know the answer is "yes".
Let's have an awesome week!
