You know when you’re feeling it? – that wide-awake, bouncing-out-of-your-skin buzz that comes from eating well and getting off your arse regularly?
For some of us, feeling it is a sporadic thing that happens when we’re on health kick or newly in love. For others, ‘feeling it,’ is an everyday thing.
I have a friend who’s an example of those others I speak of. I’ll call him Gerry, because that’s his name.
Gerry positively radiates positive energy at all times. This may or may not have something to do with bikram yoga five times a week and his 100km Saturday bike ride. It’s lucky Gerry is such a nice bloke – otherwise I couldn’t stand him.
Diet wise, he’s relatively normal – I’ve seen him scoff Pad Thai and drink red wine. But he also eats mountains of fruit and snacks on unsalted nuts, not honey-soy kettle chips.
Anyway, one day I was talking to him about his lifestyle and said, ‘I don’t know how you do it.’
He laughed his gorgeous Irish laugh and said, ‘I don’t know how you don’t!’
Okay. Moment of pause.
This, I have realized is the secret of happy, active people and it’s not really a secret. They feel great pretty much all the time because their lifestyle choices aren’t choices at all – they’re decisions that become part of their lives.
So while the rest of us have that ‘feeling it’ feeling sporadically, the Gerrys of the world have it all the time.
They don’t nod off without a mid-morning coffee or stress about shopping for jeans after lunch.
Their default mood is happy and they never say no to an invitation because they’re ‘too tired’.
Who wouldn’t want to be feeling it all the time?
