Four Disciplines for a Healthy Heart

I came across a post by Michael Hyatt the other day that focused on taking care of your heart.  As an old timer, I decided to take a look.  Michael presents some great advice in the post – and I think it is valuable information for anyone – whether you’re a Boomer like me, or a Millennial.  You can see the article here.

Michael suggests four disciplines for staying heart healthy…

  1. The Discipline of Reflection
  2. The Discipline of Rest
  3. The Discipline of Recreation
  4. The Discipline of Relationships

All four are important.  Coincidentally, I am able to combine all four on one of my favorite activities – bicycling. Cathy and I bike together, so it is great for our relationship.  Bicycling is great recreation – a fun, low-impact aerobic exercise.  I always sleep better on nights that I’ve exercised.  And some of my best thoughts come when I’m on my bike.

I’m lucky this way – a four for one activity.

What do you do to make sure that you find time for reflection? For rest? For Recreation? For working on your relationships?
