The founders of the BNXH091 are native Hawaiians and a lot of their health knowhow comes directly from the islands’ culture, language, and history. Natives or anyone who has spent significant time on these picturesque volcanic islands understand that Hawaii is much more than a tropical beach destination, but rather an entire manner of living.
We have likened a fitness regimen to your golf game before, and we will do it again here. Any good golfer will tell you the value of having a “swing thought,” especially when they are failing to make solid contact with the ball, or in our case failing to live a happy and healthy life. What is a swing thought you may ask…
According to Tiger Woods’ former golf coach, Hank Haney, a swing thought is a mindset you have from the moment you lay your club face down next to the ball all the way to your after swing. Haney has also spoke at length about how the best swing thoughts are the most simple and are also effortless. It’s the exact same when it comes being healthy. Try not to complicate things with over-promising and often bizarre health fads. It’s important to keep in mind that we have, in fact, evolved from single cell organisms. With so many bogus articles found across the web, you may be thinking that most nutritionists have just a single cell in their brain! That’s not to say they are all bad. But make sure that they provide links to academic studies that corroborate their claims. If they don’t, these so called nutrition experts may just be out to steal you hard-earned cash.
As you may have noticed, we have a digressed quite a bit. We at BNXH091 actually encourage digression when it comes to both health and blogging. It’s not necessarily that we are ardent supporters of digression itself, but what it represents at its core, a subconscious pursuit of the body and mind’s desires. Try to learn these subconscious desires, for they will not cease by the brute force of willpower. Leverage them, so instead of having them hold you back, they are holding you up.
Here are a few Hawaiian words you should make an effort to learn, use, and live by.
Pono, which roughly translates to righteousness, is all about the conscious effort to act in accordance with what is best not only for yourself, but for you friends, families, and strangers as well as the environment around you. To learn more about this, you should visit our holistic health site where we further expound on this philosophy and how it relates to improving your health.
Another Hawaiian word to keep in mind is Aina or land. Hawaii boasts some of the most stunning beaches and mountain views. Nature, especially for the natives, is embedded within their being and daily lives. Exploring the outdoors is the easiest, most fun, and often the most effective way to exercise. In a way, us humans were domesticated by society. Unleash your inner being and run across the volcanic-sand beaches.
