The quarantine RX survey results are in and the feedback so far has been great!


One of the subjects that I would like to touch on this week is how to overcome lack of motivation.

I know I sound like a broken record but I cannot stress enough the importance of establishing a routine.This does not have to be an every minute on the minute type of thing. Start by building a solid morning routine. Now that the weather is getting nicer maybe you begin your day with walking your dog or enjoying coffee on the deck.  Find 2-3 things that bring you joy and that you can do every morning to help set the intention for the day.  Many of us have kids at home. It’s very easy to get distracted with the needs of everyone else. By focusing on YOU first thing, even if it’s for 20-minutes will have a positive ripple effect on everything else during the day.

We all know that physical activity pumps up your feel good endorphins but staying active can be a challenge especially the longer we get lost in the mist of Twendsturdays and Munsdays. I also understand the frustration that comes with not having the “right” equipment at home. But lets be honest, what matters the most is NOT the type of movement you do or how intense your workout is. What matters is YOU SHOWED UP!!! It does not have to be perfect, just keep moving.

And lastly, lets touch on goal setting. Yes there are many things we all could be working on or towards during this time but we need to cut ourselves some slack. This is not the time to search for perfection. Not everyone can hit 5 workouts per week, eat 100% compliant, drink enough water, meditate daily or get 8+ hours of sleep. We are not all created to multi-task. This is the time to keep things simple and achievable. Make 1-2 small goals then once you hit those you can always add on to them. And make sure to keep goals stress free.

There are going to be days when we sleep in, make too many trips to the fridge and stay up until 2 a.m. Netflixin. And that is ok. The best thing we can do is forgive ourselves when we stumble, accept our new normal, and treat each other — and ourselves — with grace.
