When life happens..... I call out of the blue events or circumstances “life happening” to you.
I’m talking when work gets ridiculously busy, your kids after school events take over your life or, heaven for bid, a family member or friend gets sick and needs your help.
When getting the everyday to do’s done is impossible, never mind any extra’s.
Like the daily exercise you’re supposed to be getting in, that clean food shopping and prep you’re supposed to be doing, your meditation and gratitude practice, self-development reading and podcasts, time with friends and family ....I could go on...and on...and on... Life is ALWAYS going to happen. As soon as you think you have all your ducks in a row, BOOM, something is going to mess it up.
It’s a MUST that you learn to expect this and manage your mind about it before, during and after it happens.
If not, you will constantly be in a state of anxiety worrying about when life is going to happen to you next, catastrophizing the event when it happens and falling into deep sadness when it passes and you weren’t able to cope.
I’m the CEO of all my very important little people at home, and my hubby too of course (teehee 😝) and manage the best team of trainers. I love them all and their priorities will always trump mine.
As a result, recently, my workouts have taken a back seat a lot more than I would like because “life has happened to me.” But, I’m ecstatic to report that I no longer feel the anxiety, guilt or stress around it.
I’d say I’ve learned, but I’m still a work in progress, but I have managed to manage my mind a great deal of the time. I control my thoughts that used to spiral out of control. I’m less anxious, I’m happier and I’m far more productive.
Wanna know how⁉️ Stay tuned tomorrow and I’ll share my little secret 🤫
It’s truly worth reading. Getting the most out of every minute of every day depends on it.
FYI this compound exercise ROCKS!!!!! I call it building a sexy summer bod. Deep split lunge to work and shape your glutes and those curls and fly’s to develop gorgeous tank top biceps and shoulders 😍
Woot! Worth making the effort to get back to routine ASAP. Until then..... Manage those minds
