Is More Necessarily Better?
Many of our clients at one time or another would have heard us say “more is not better, better is better” meaning we tend to focus on the qualitative aspects apposed to the quantitative aspects! this applies to a lot of different scenarios: movement, move well and then move often! Exercise: if you exercise with efficiency you don’t need more exercises you can actually do more with less! Nutrition: if you monitor/track your daily food you can then make better choices so you don’t need to try every new diet or Fad that comes out.
So when we say more is not better this doesn’t mean you don’t need to do very much! No when you do things better you do them frequently you just don’t try and do more thinking it’s better, example: If 30min of exercise a day was healthy and beneficial you don’t then do 60 min a day or 2 hours at once twice a week thinking it’s Better! you would do 30 min well everyday (hopefully this makes sense) As we age this shouldn’t become a barrier or prevent us doing the things we enjoy doing that being said we need to do things smarter(better) to allow us to do this, so be honest with yourself and ask the question “what can I do better” by asking this question you will come up with better answers.
