It’s so important to workout, but do you practice Mindset Mental Fitness?  When was the last time you felt down?   For me, it was last week.  I was feeling sorry for myself, frustrated and it was starting to take me down a path I didn’t want to go.  Your daily mindset and thoughts are critical to your success in every aspect of your life.  Negative thoughts and mindset can take you down a rabbit hole of depression, procrastination, self sabotage and crush your productivity and success.  This is a longer post with lots of info 🙂

I have not fully shared yet but I have been going through a scary medical issue since November which has me frustrated, scared, unsettled and feeling a loss of control.  It’s affecting every aspect of my life and I am having to make “adjustments” to my business life, workouts, sleep and in my personal life that I don’t want to.  I was resistant.  My “DUMPY mood” didn’t last long because I have the tools to recognize and replace what I’m going through and get help when I need it.

Two Tips to Climb out of the Mindset Weeds

Tip #1  Get Real 

  • Write down has you frustrated *don’t hold back, there is no judgement here, it’s just a note to yourself and nobody else needs to see it.
  • What are all of the thoughts you feel?
  • How it is affecting your behaviour?
  • What are the triggers and a general dump list of everything you feel around the situation?

Tip #2 Be the Coach

  • Look at the get real dump list and identify what advice you would give to someone else after reading it?
  • What are some points that can you do to gain ground and deal with the situation in the present time?
  • What changes can you make to improve your current situation?
  • Focus on the positive and NOT the negative or you will get more of it

My Two Identified Priorities:  

    1. Seek out a Mindset Support Coach:  I hired someone to give me perspective, clarity and an insight into some things that have me stuck. EPIC!
    2. Prioritize regular workouts because they have a direct affect on my mood.  I had to find an accountability buddy to keep me on target with my “modified” workouts.  I can’t lift heavy, I can’t do yoga, I can’t crush the workouts I normally do and that SUCKS!  Once I changed my mindset and realized I can simply modify my workouts, I tell my accountability buddy and she keeps me accountable!

In Summary

  • If you are injured:  Focus only on what can you do in workouts and not what you can’t do
  • Get an accountability buddy
  • Hire an expert: a Coach, therapist, personal trainer or medical professional that can help your current situation
  • Invest money in you
  • Get a strong circle of support with friends, family and a team that has great mindset and can help you when you are down
  • Forgive yourself when you have a bad day *its healthy and normal
  • Recognize when you are down in the dumps, go back to your triggers and your list
  • Replace your bad mood with a list of things you know make you feel incredibly happy and powerful and do more of them
  • Make these amazing Lemon Chia Seed Muffins, they will make you happy 🙂

A little repetitive practice and you are all set!

Get Your Mind Right

  • Part of creating change is creating habits READ MORE
  • If you are stuck, figure out what you can do to manipulate where you are at, remember your are in control of your thoughts
  • Modify where you need it i.e.: is it mindset that has you stuck, what workouts can you do?
  • Nature is very healing, get outside daily
  • Give yourself permission to let go and be okay with where you are at
  • Go through it, feel it and be in the situation.  Don’t push it away!
  • Mindset matters:  focus on the positive things rather than the “situation” you are going through
  • Your current situation is an opportunity for change and growth
  • Don’t be resistant, change your mindset and accept where you are at
  • Focus on gratitude

Just like negative thoughts become a reality, so does the positive mindset and thoughts so get your MIND RIGHT!
