Do Push-Ups Because All Lives Matter

Care about all human lives?  Care about your own life?  These are great reasons to do push-ups.  Let me tell you why.


Push-ups are awesome for many reasons that I have written about in the past, but when I say “push-ups”, that is actually a code word for “get your $#!^ together”.  Push-ups, in my language, means exercise, and a better diet, and a healthier lifestyle.  It means make your bed and take a shower and pay your bills on time.  Understand your own values, work on your ability to express them clearly, and practice living them.

All Human Lives

I’ve talked about this one before as well.  I agree that all lives matter, and I think that means not only the lives of people who look like you or think like you, but also the lives of the people who you or your people may have done harm to in the past, or may be doing harm to now.  I think shifting your focus to care about all human lives also involves a deep introspection into your own life and the impacts you have on others.  Want to do the most good for the most people?  It starts within.  If you can muster the self-discipline to do push-ups, you can also muster the self-discipline to change your buying habits and social behaviors.

Your Own Life

Your own life will benefit from doing push-ups, and that will benefit others.  Getting your own house in order means addressing the ways that your personal affairs affect others.  Your lifestyle will involve less social costs and create more social benefits.  For example, you will be less likely to burden the health care system and more likely to do service work for others.  Of course, it also means a better quality of life for you, as well as increased longevity.  Those are the selfish reasons to do push-ups.  Either way, your life and the lives of others is improved.

Go do some push-ups.
