Better Questions

A lot of health indicators gravitate towards performance measures:

  • How fast can you run a certain distance?
  • How many minutes do you exercise?
  • How much weight can you lift?
  • How many calories do you consume?

Instead, I think there are much better measures of health you can measure on a day-to-day basis:

  • How do you feel when you wake up in the morning?
  • How do you feel when performing daily movements (picking up things, etc.)?
  • How’s your posture throughout the day?
  • How do you feel after exercising?
  • How do you feel after eating a meal?

In my view, these are more important measures for sustaining long-term health and performance.
