How to be #1

How to be #1

Josie has two kids, a spouse, and a full time job. She feels like she can barely go to the bathroom alone.

Joe is a lawyer. He works long hours, sometimes weekends, and likes to spend time with family.

Sam has elderly parents that require a lot of care and attention. She brings them to doctors appointments and checks on often.

I bet you’re one of the above in some form. We all have a lot going on and give a lot. But if we are being honest with ourselves.. we all have time. You just need to take it.

The airlines have it right when it comes to self care. When the plane hits turbulence, masks are deployed. You put your own mask on before helping others. Any other way, you won’t be able to help others.

Likewise, putting your health and fitness - your engine - on the back burner will leave you sputtering. At some point, you’ll be (quite literally) gasping for air.

When was the last time you took time to evaluate your self care practices?

What does your exercise routine look like? Did you start out motivated, hitting every workout hard for the first few weeks? Have you kept that momentum up or was it maybe too much, too soon? Are you still hitting your goals or do you feel yourself falling short? (If this is you - we can help!!)

Here’s a tip to sticking to ANY goal:

Block out a specific time in your schedule like an important work meeting or doctors appointment. Schedule it in and commit to showing up - no exceptions. Get back on board. It’s not too late.

Do you have a solid exercise schedule? What does your recovery look like? After all, recovery is just as important as your tough workout - the gains we see from the gym come when we rest. Schedule a massage, yoga class, or quiet time. Block it off. Make it an appointment.

What does your diet look like? Need a little cleaning up? Mix a healthy meal in as much as you can. Start with one and go from there. Need some guidance? We can help.

It’s so easy to brush off self care, especially in the holiday season (not to mention the year that is 2020). Our houses are full (or empty/different), parties and obligations are abundant, stress is high.

But now, more than ever, it’s important to embrace self care. Increasing physical activity, decreasing mental stress, and being intentional with healthy eating is vital to supporting mental and physical health and staving off illness and recuperating faster if we fall ill.

So pull your planner out. Make an appointment with yourself (we have over 16 classes each week to choose from). If that STILL doesn’t help you get back on track, please reach out to one of your trainers! We can help you come up with a plan of action that is realistic and sustainable for YOU!

Be better at life by being better to yourself first. And remember: we are always here to help!
