A friend of mine who knows about my idea of maximising my health span recently lamented that he would also become more active and behave more healthily if only he could find the time and the right regimen to start with. In this post, I describe my daily REWIRE routine — Synch body and mind towards a max health span.
Since the prevailing ‘no time’ argument and a certain unease regarding an overwhelming and partially contradictory amount of recommendations regarding fitness, diet and mindful living, I wrote down my own regimen which could serve as an exemplary schedule, easy to be coxed and pasted into other lives.
Daily REWIRE Routine — Synch Body And Mind Towards A Max Health Span
My daily routine consists of of physical, mental and mindful elements that can be copied by anybody who wants to change her life in a healthy way and brings along a certain commitment. Most elements require to overcome one’s inner temptation. That might be tough at the start, but it becomes easier after every repetition and after some time you probably wonder how you could have lived without this training before: the significant positive results on your lifestyle and well-being become so obvious that you can’t think of living without it anymore.
Overview Daily Rewire Routine DRR
For a full DRR you need 1.5h of your time each day. If that sounds much to you, choose between two options: either you just select some specific elements out of the DRR, e.g. you might forgo the run and thus spare 25 minutes. Or, you use it as an excuse for not starting the DRR at all. If you‘re ready to choose the second option, wait a second, and think about how much of your time is spent on Social Media, TV and consuming daily news — with none making you a bit happier, let alone more healthy. You might be able to take a bit of this unconsciously spent time budget and instead turn it into an investment in your healthspan.
If you‘re motivated and ready to start with the DRR — perfect — you won‘t regret your decision! The DRR is probably (one of) the very best wellness programs you can treat yourself with. You train your body to manage oxygen and calorie intake much mote efficiently with an optimized metabolism and energy management as a result. You will feel better, you will look better, you will be healthier and you will most probably maximize the healthy part of your life span — your health span.
For the sceptics, there is another, totally different, compelling argument in favor of DRR: it’s free! There is no monthly gym bill, no app subscription fee — your sole investment is your time.and willpower.
