I love a thoughtful lyric, and I find this one is especially good. (It’s from a Paul Simon song of the same name, in case you’re curious.) For me, it’s a reminder that, whatever happens, there will always be someone in a better or a worse situation. It applies to so many areas of life, but particularly in the world of health and fitness. Many people compare themselves to others, often unfavourably, and feel rubbish as a result: “That person is so much better at x than I am”.
What if this didn’t happen and this comparative habit wasn’t present anymore? I feel that your health and fitness is your business, and the only comparison to make is with yourself and whether you are feeling better than before. Surely that’s a great reason to exercise, to eat and sleep well and to take more care of yourself.
