Two Arrows and One of Them Can Change Your Life

When shit hits the fan, and it always does, the first thing we forget about is our health and fitness. When we're very stressed, typically, our food intake shows it.

That's why I talk/write about so many themes.

When we're stressed, it affects our eating and exercise. When other areas of our life are suffering - it affects our eating and exercise, too. There's no question about it.

I've spent hours on the phone and via email going back and forth with clients talking nothing about their health and fitness. Yet, it has everything to do with their health and fitness.

So here's my 2 arrow approach to life:

When something bad happens to us, it's as if we're hit by 2 arrows. The bad/stressful/annoying/unhappy/sad/scary/hurtful thing is usually very real. Let's call that the first arrow.

For example, if we get into a car accident, it's at the very least, very annoying. This is the first dart.

We then might start to think how unlucky we are, how we can't catch a break, why we even left at that time, why we took that particular route, and we keep replaying the incident in our heads. That is the second arrow.

The second arrow is so treacherous because we don't realize we have control over it.

We can try to structure our life in a way that minimizes our chance of getting hit by arrows, or we can deliberately practice how we're affected by the second arrow.

The best way to practice this is to be conscious of when we're indulging in self-pity, and re-playing and realizing that this pain is within our control. These are the second arrows.

See what happens when you focus on the second arrow. Just being aware of it can make a huge difference.
