Lebanon, PA-Who is not familiar with the amygdala hijacking ‘CRUSH IT’ culture? You know; the screaming fitness or business coach telling you to go out and crush it, sleep less, and stomp upon your enemies. It is a wildfire in my profession, and I find it to be one of the unhealthiest behaviors in an industry about health.
 In an era where everyone seems to be discussing mental health, it may be time for each of us to do a self inventory. So many of us relate to the faces of depression, the sad, expressionless, apathetic masks worn by so many suffering from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). However, many of us face the day with a smile, a sustainable routine and attend to all of our daily needs, including work, children, and other needed obligations. Does this mean we are NOT depressed? Or just not “ happy”, “ satisfied” or is this just considered being “content”?
Teaching is also being the student. I learned a great deal more about my martial arts when I actually had to teach it. I developed a greater awareness of my own physical training through the coaching of my clients. Having to articulate my understanding so others could understand, caused me to look at myself from the outside in. The reciprocal experience of student and teacher is the portal to great magic.
