Practice, Practice, Practice

Your body is a temple.

As humans, we emplace so many external obstacles and responsibilities on ourselves; that we lose sight on what capabilities, if given the time, we may actually behold.

Everybody says they want to be strong and fit or learn to play the piano, but never really end up being able to do what they say they want. Humans are such incredible species and are able to incorporate anything into their lives given the effectiveness of practice in such subject.

This is where muscle memory comes into play. The amount of time required for YOU to be able to master something inhibits personal enhancement in muscle memory. Working out is the same concept as learning to play an instrument.

Allowing yourself to progress through time is what ultimately indulges achievement. Weights will begin to seem lighter and guitar scales will seem swifter once the right amount of time is provided.

So next time you feel outraged by not being able to hit the right note on time, give yourself a little more time instead of giving up entirely. See what this article had to say about understanding muscle memory more sufficiently.



Oooh Rexy, You’re So Sexy

You may be too young to have ever been in a record store. Perhaps you never experienced the joy, the smell, the way a record felt between your palms. Maybe you never got to take part in the passionate exchange of musical preference and knowledge between patron and sales clerk.

Don’t believe me? Just watch the 90’s cult classic Empire Records and if will give you a glimpse into a world that people nowadays will never get to experience.

Speaking of which, April 8th was National Rex Manning Day and if you forgot to celebrate, it’s ok. You can mark it on your calendar for next year.

If you don’t get it, here is why it’s so important we never stop celebrating Rex Manning day – no matter how obsolete records and music stores become.
