Moderation is relative too


I have talked a lot about how intensity should be a relative thing, ie applied to suit your current level of fitness, ability, injury status, restfulness and mental wellbeing.

Likewise though, so is moderation.

“Everything in moderation”


We’ve all heard it before. We’ve probably said it before.

But like anything relative, it’s important that you take the time to regularly audit your perceptions.

Before you know it, moderation can become much less than that.

It can also go the other way, and become the only focus.

The stories we tell ourselves to convince ourselves that we’re right can be complex and all too believable.

But if your version of moderation isn’t working then it needs adjusting. 

And it’s ok to take baby steps!

Because progress is yet another relative term….. ;)
