Life is a journey, life is a process. It’s not always easy but it’s what we make of it in the process.
I’ve been challenged more in 2020 than I ever have been. But it’s always about how you choose to get back up and conquer your goals or just anything in general.
This week on a run I was thinking about how crazy it has been to be through such a whirlwind of what we can and cannot do on a daily basis. The unknowns have been the most evident stressors for a lot of us. I just remind myself daily that we have to try and stay on the course as best as possible. Things we are in control of. For me that is always getting back to what works. For me, what works is; I wake up a little before the kids, but first coffee 😉 And then I take my daily gratitude journal and write down what I am thankful for, my word of the day and what I will remember for tomorrow. Followed by setting my goals/expectations for the day in a checklist form.
On my run I also thinking about how hard it was to be at home through those months, almost like a sense of feeling trapped. I’m guessing we also weakened our immune systems, we ate more, we drank more, didn’t get our daily dose of the feel good from moving with endorphins(GUILTY on a lot of days before things started to open up!) It all feels backwards some days. So, I guess what I’m trying to say with all of this is, YOU are in control of what you can control. Want to build a better immune system? Exercise, eat healthy and do something to better yourself mentally. Write what you’re thankful for, listen to an empowering podcast, read a book. Make your CHOICE to make a CHANGE. If you make the change to better yourself, you will better yourself. And my biggest advice is, don’t be afraid to ask for help from someone. It’s never easy to do something alone. And I don’t just mean with your fitness and nutrition. This means all aspects of your life. It can be easy to think you can do it all alone but eventually, I promise, you will break. I’ve been there. You have to lean on others as well. Challenge creates change and I can be with you every step of the way for all of your wellness goals. Sometimes all it takes is a step in the right direction or for monthly support. Each of us is different as to what we need as far as goals, as I always say, none of us have a one size fit wellness plan. Reach out to meet with me in person, online or just by text or email support. Don’t hesitate to ask for help, if you need it! There are so many options and routes we can take to make sure you’re living your best life and by not missing out on the things you love.
POSITIVE ENERGY is the best energy. With that, I will say I hope your Friday is off to a fabulous start! And enjoy this beautiful weather!
