The Sweet Spot
LIVE FREE, MOVE FREE - AT THE SWEET SPOT
This blog is about one thing - the most important thing that any individual can experience. You can’t touch it, you can’t buy it, you can’t steal it, can’t conjure it up or make it happen. It’s the thing that sets us apart from the apes. It’s a moment.
That moment when you’re set free from all worry, all responsibility, all guilt, regret and doubt. It’s that moment when you forget how old you are, how inexperienced you are, how limited you are. You feel mentally and physically unleashed – free. You are overwhelmed with the raw primal sensation of being alive, connected, engaged and deeply content. Every sense is alert and saturated with input.
For some of us it’s when we catch the perfect wave, when we go for a winter run on an empty road with a fresh playlist, ski down fresh powder with crisp mountain air on our face, catch that elusive, uncatchable fish. When your body is infiltrated by your favourite music and you dance like you've never danced before. For others it’s when your child tells you they love you with a smile, you make a key breakthrough in meaningful work or simply watch the beauty of real life play out.
We call it our sweet spot.
The place we go when our mind and body experience the uniquely human sensation produced by a combination of physical and brain biochemistry, physical energy and natural energy colliding into one spectacularly emotional sensory moment.
The quest for the experience of this moment is what should drive us all every day. It’s the difference between thriving and existing. To thrive is a birthright that goes unrealised by many. Life and people can be cruel at times. We can get kicked around. After a while if we allow ourselves to – we can lose hope. We can lose the hope that we will ever experience this incredibly intoxicating moment again. Some go looking for it in drugs, alcohol and food. But the hit is never the same. Some self harm and abuse their bodies. We choke our sweet spot potential unwittingly with every choice. Our bodies become swollen and sad, our minds and hearts forlorn.
This blog is here to help restore hope. The aim is to inspire and offer direction and drive to get you back in touch with your natural sweet spot on a regular basis.
There are things we can control and things we cannot. At ‘The Sweet Spot’ we focus on tools and quality information that help develop the things we can control.
These include: physical health, mental health, perspective, resilience, vulnerability, belonging, movement and exercise and nourishing functional food. Once we have these things we open ourselves up to all kinds of different opportunities and experiences that have ‘Sweet Spot’ potential!
Our objective is to inspire purpose, positivity, directed discipline and consistent practice in training, be it mental or physical training. Purposeful positive, disciplined and consistent practice and training are the key ingredients required to produce your next sweet spot experience.
We’re going to explore, introduce and present many new modes and styles of mental and physical training tools to enhance your key ‘Sweet Spot ingredients’. We’re going to analyse and explain the latest research relating to the body, so you can move and live free. Free of pain and injury, free from mental distress so you can engage in stimulating and challenging activities. So you can thrive.
Let Your Evolution Begin.....
