The Lion Chief refuses to encage himself. The world is open, free, exciting, beautiful and meant to be explored. He knows he is just as wild as the lions. What happens when a lion is encaged? The lion grows weak, sick, depressed, and slowly dies. Just as the lion is a wild animal of the Earth, so are we. The Lion Chief understands that to fulfill his journey he must be greater mentally and physically than his obstacles. Lack of movement will weaken a warrior. He understands he must express his body to de-stress his life. He realizes his mind and body are interconnected. The mind cannot function without the body and the body cannot function without the mind. When his mind is dull, he sharpens it with movement. The Lion Chief always looks to grow stronger physically, which helps him grow mentally. The physical affects the psychological. The movement frees him.
Go exercise, walk, explore, dance, play, skateboard, run, swim, yoga etc. It doesn’t matter how you move and express your body, as long as you do it. Do not lock yourself inside for 8 hours at a time.You are an animal that craves adventure, not staleness. Express yourself with movement and you will be rewarded in a million more ways than just a nice body.
