Basic Adaptation Errors

Hello, and welcome to the Living Revolution!

My ultimate goal with this blog is to help change the world in a positive way, on a consistent and sustainable basis. To that end, I will be posting a wide variety of content for your enjoyment :). I started a Youtube channel and will be adding videos on a regular basis, so be sure to check it out HERE. Also, if you are interested in learning more about where I am getting my inspiration these days, please check out MY READING LIST, and let me know if you have read anything lately that ties in with these subjects. Alright, enough about all that, let’s get to today’s post…

One of my goals as a coach is to teach people how to use small actions to help improve their daily lives. These changes sometimes involve NOT doing something destructive, and sometimes they involve the incorporation of new positive behaviors.  Injuries and illness often result from repetitive destructive behaviors, but we can often avoid injury and illness by taking preemptive measures to live better lives. Today, I’m going to give you a short list of “basic adaptation errors” that take place in everyday life that can compound to create less-than-optimal living conditions. I’ll break each of these down in later posts, but for now, I want you to think about the actions listed here, and start figuring out how to avoid them in your own life!

BASIC ADAPTATION ERRORS

*Sleep Deprivation – healthy adults need 7-10 hours of sleep a night to function optimally. Make this a priority.

*Dehydration – drink about 1/2 your body weight in ounces every day, plus additional ounces if you train hard. Check HERE

*Poor Nutrition – pay attention to how you fuel your body, and how you use food to recover, more on this later.

*Prolonged Sitting – break up periods of sitting with 15 minutes of movement for every hour of sitting. Also, mobilize to avoid chronic bad position.

*Chronic inflammation – can result from a number of factors, including poor diet, high stress, overtraining, etc.

*Stress – more specifically “un-managed” stress.  We’ll talk more about this later also.

Even with just this short list, you can begin to see how poor choices can stack on top of each other quickly to produce less-than-optimal performance. Today’s question addresses this list…

What “basic adaptation errors” are you making in your life, and how are you going to start making healthier choices?

Post your ideas and comments below, and let’s start changing the world in a positive way! Thank you so much for reading my words, and for participating in the Living Revolution! Peace.Tobias.

  1. This should prove to be useful information for a lot of people. Inflammation is definitely a big harm today and it can potentially cause a lot of different symptoms. Inflammation can inherently effect other basic adaptation errors you mention and probably different ones. Cheers.
