WEEKLY CHALLENGE: Management

IMG_3062Any sustained physical activity, if it is to be enjoyed and repeated, must be managed. The honest truth – pain and discomfort are closely associated with most wilderness or outdoor activities that go beyond the family picnic or a stroll in the park.

But there is much to be learned from pain and discomfort, and if managed it actually becomes a positive element of the adventure. What do I mean? Pain can be a positive thing in this adventure called life? Since it is inevitable we might as well learn how to deal with it and let it make us stronger, rather than defeating us and discouraging us.

When I am out for a long run, hours on the trail, or along the roadside, pain almost always decides to join me somewhere along the route. Usually this happens when I am becoming fatigued or late into my run.  If I am cycling, this too usually happens after hours or days of riding.  Rather than letting the pain stop me, I begin a process of re-evaluation, and examination – what is causing this pain and how can it be alleviated?

Pain and discomfort have probably saved my life, if the truth is known. For example; dehydration is a very real danger with endurance sports, hiking, running, cycling etc. and if not corrected or averted it can lead to a very rapid spiral downward, physically, which can lead to serious health concerns and even death. Fortunately like most other issues in our bodies, before becoming critical, dehydration and other issues are brought to our attention through pain and discomfort.

I begin analyzing and reviewing my nutrition on-the-go, my form, the mechanics of my activity, my equipment, hydration, etc. Then I begin to make, the sometimes, small adjustments necessary to relieve the pain, thus allowing me to continue to enjoy and complete the challenge before me.

Life is the same way – pain cannot be avoided, but when it comes, it does not have to rob us of joy, purpose and satisfaction. Recognize it, analyze it, identify it and make the necessary adjustments in your life that will relieve the pain and keep you going with joy and passion in your life.

I have found that applying and living God’s truths of His Word, the Holy Bible, that they give me that standard by which to gauge and adjust my life. It doesn’t guarantee pain-free living and a problem free life, but it does have the answer for turning the pain into something positive and profitable in my life.

Next time you are in pain; reevaluate and make the appropriate adjustments and get back to enjoying this great adventure called life! If you need a standard by which to check your status or state of being, consider the time-tested and trusted truths of the Word of God.
