I recently spent time in New Zealand and this special country reminded me of fundamentals required for optimal mental and physical performance. Fundamentals that are mandatory to be put in place so that you can live and work at your best, day in and day out. Remember, fundamentals are vital for the long-term success of any project, and in relation to your world, your life, and your potential, I urge you to consider that your number one life’s project, begins with you. When it comes to the performance of the human mind-body there are three basics that New Zealand provided in abundance to naturally boost brain-body performance.
1) Fresh Air
Breathing and the function of breathing is of primary importance to a human being… wouldn’t you agree? We don’t do very well without it, do we? Perhaps a few minutes at most. New Zealand reminded me how re-vitalizing it is to breathe fresh clean air on a daily basis. I urge you to find areas where you live that allow your physiological systems to breathe in the very source that keeps you alive. This alone will boost your mind and body and has immediate positive effects on your entire being.
2) Clean Water
If you want to experience beautiful crystal clear, fresh water just heads to the mountain rivers in the South Island of New Zealand. Clean water nourishes and rejuvenates the natural world, and I would argue we are a part of that world. How long can you go without water… a few days? Perhaps one week? Water keeps us and our earth alive, so aim to consume clean water on a daily basis in order to be able to consistently perform at your best.
3) Outdoor Movement
New Zealanders love and respect Mother Nature and come rain, hail or shine they get outside and embrace moving in nature. Golf, gardening, hiking, sailing, rugby, climbing, surfing, the list is endless, and everyone pursuing movement outside seem to enjoy it. People are smiling, people are laughing and get this – people are embracing real social interaction! If you want to perform at your best, get outside and move! Hopefully in fresh air with friends, drinking quality clean water & surrounded with nature.
