Take on the 30-Day Scholar-Warrior Challenge

Going along with the themes shared on Chronicles of Fitness (learning to understand the context that you live in and exact empathy, and using fitness to fully live out change) we start our challenge to create balance through education in the world around us and physicality to make us better capable to perform.

By empowering ourselves physically we can maximize the vehicle through which our bodies function. Think of it like a horse and a jockey.

We’re trying to build the horse really well because its the vehicle by which the jockey can assert position and share its strategies in action.

On the same note, by studying history, and more broadly, expanding the power of the jockey, we understand the context in which we exist in.

We become more aware of the trends of human history and how the environment of today has been shaped. Its through this awareness that we can make educated-assumptions on how to proceed forward.

The concept of a scholar-warrior has been related in several different cultures and creeds. In one way, you could say that its being an advocate of moderation or even of the middle path.

For that reason, here is a 30 day challenge to train and learn like a scholar-warrior.  The series was originally published on Medium.com and the links will direct you over to Medium.
