Here at CrossFit we are constantly doing things for our bodies. It’s important stuff, but it’s not serious business. It’s a good distinction to make — “important” but not “serious.” What I mean is that if you want to live a life of vitality it’s important to stay fit and keep yourself moving. That doesn’t mean that the scores, times, and numbers are serious or significant. They don’t mean anything. They’re no more significant than saying “it’s raining.” It’s only information that helps determine what you are going to do next.

How much time do you spend doing something for your spirit? It’s also probably something important given what you’re up to, but it certainly doesn’t have to be serious. Sometimes we can get the most out of something that we don’t take seriously. It doesn’t matter what it looks like to anyone else, as long as it works for you. For some that may look like quiet reflection, prayer, or meditation. Well, here is something that you can do for your spirit that definitely isn’t serious, and you can easily work into your day. It’s from a man named Sean Stephenson who by all rights has every right to take things very seriously. But he doesn’t. Check it out.
