Don’t get so caught up in trying to live the “healthiest” and longest life possible that you forget to LIVE.

Staying in good health isn’t an end in and of itself. The PURPOSE of living in a healthier body is the ability to DO more with it. Love more. Play more. Use it for good (or mischief, you little buggers). Getting a fitter body is about more than just HAVING one. You gotta put it to good use.

It’s super easy to fall in love with healthy living: it’s addictive, it’s fun and the benefits are wicked. But if you’re spending more time in the gym than with the people you love or have become so restrictive with your eating that there is no room for spontaneity or JOY, you may want to re-prioritize.

Healthy living = healthier bodies. Healthier bodies = the ability to DO more for longer. Doing more, for longer = the MAIN purpose of healthy living. Don’t forget it.

I just love reading nonswimmer’s reactions to MP’s comeback 

fyeahschmelpers:

"He’s like 40 wtf is he doing swimming more"
“I thought he wanted golf”
“Who is MP”
“He did so good in that swim race at the Olympics!!!”

A coach is a parent, a friend, a confident, and a psycologist.
