One of the things I’m passionate about is staying healthy over time. Training and taking care of ourselves not only for right now or a short-term goal, but for a long, healthy life in a strong body we love.
Ironically, one of the most important aspects of this “training” piece isn’t the physical training at all….
It’s how we surround our training with rest and good sleep, how we nourish ourselves with whole foods, and how we manage our daily stress with a practice that supports our mental health.
There will be times when things come up and throw you off track. Times when you can’t keep up your exercise routine. Or you can’t get the sleep you crave. Or you go through an unexpectedly stressful event.
This is when we need to remind ourselves that it’s about
PROGRESS OVER PERFECTION
And doing something is better than doing nothing at all as we work towards our goals.
Choosing progress over perfection promotes a healthy mindset with opportunities for positive learning and performance, and fosters healthier connections with ourselves and our body.
So don’t rush the process.
Slow down. Befriend your body and listen to its wisdom as you pace yourself. We’re in it for the long haul after all - let’s enjoy the process and learn as much as we can along the way!
