I’ll admit that there have been a few changes in the past year, but these three things won’t:
— Self-Care is Non-Negotiable: Many women burn themselves out taking care of everyone. It’s natural to for us to take care of others, that’s what women do! However, we can’t always take care of everyone and everything else at the complete expense of our own health and happiness.
Remember, you can’t pour from an empty cup.
Take care of yourself so that you can be the best version of you and be able to fully give and help others.
— The “Other” 165: If you were making it to the gym three days a week before the pandemic, your results were largely going to be dictated by the “Other 165” hours in the week. Factors like sleep, stress, hydration and nutrition have a lot more to do with how your clothes fit than those TRX rows that you did yesterday. The same is true now … even more so. Yes, it’s important to get your workouts in. But it’s even more important to be accountable to what happens during the “Other 165.” Embrace it.
— Simple is Better: When it comes to exercise, the basics are always best. Expensive, elaborate equipment and machines that nobody really knows how to use are not only unnecessary, they take away from the desired outcome. [Did you see my video about using a bag of dog food?]
Become the best at the basics and the rest will take care of itself.
It really is more simple than you think!
Take care of yourself, pay attention to what you do during the165 hours a week when you’re NOT in the gym, and KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid).
What’s one thing you’ve learned or one practice you’ve adopted during the pandemic that will stay with you after it’s over? Shoot me a reply, I’d love to hear about it.
