People in America are quite possibly in the worst physical (and mental) shape of all-time, but we can change that, and what better time to turn the page than the start of the New Year?
I understand that we are in the midst of a pandemic and that many lives and livelihoods have been lost. This is something I take very seriously, and am in no way neglecting the fact that we need to take new precautions today that we didn’t a year ago (such as wearing a mask when out in public and maintaining distance from others). But that doesn’t mean we have to confine ourselves to the couch either.
Everybody needs to prioritize what is most important. And more often than not, one’s health and wellness does not get the attention it deserves. I’m hopeful this situation will help us re-prioritize, and give more mindfulness to our well-being. Instead of putting exercise on the backburner, put it on the hottest part of the grill and crank the heat up a bit. This isn’t a time to feel sorry for ourselves, but rather to feel fortunate for what we still have and to make the most of it. A time to make yourself a more resilient, robust individual.
Just because your gym has shut down, doesn’t mean your need for exercise has.
We need to have a good hard look in the mirror and decide what we can and cannot control. You are in more control than you think. The day you take ownership of your life is the day you begin to start truly living it.
There are so many options, you may not even know where to start. If you are stuck with no ideas of what to do, and live nowhere near the Farm, feel free to reach out to me and I can put together a personalized plan based on your goals and the equipment you have available to use.
It is the New Year after all…
What are you waiting for?
