Ok, who miss the gym 🙋🏼♀️ and who is loving home workouts?
So there are 2 messages floating around social media about how you "should" spend your time.
1. You "should" be making the most out of this time.
- have a schedule
- work on your habits
- learn something
2. You "should" take this time to just be, reflect and enjoy the downtime.
- unstructured time
- more sleep
- more flexibility
This is what trips people up. Relying on what others tell you "should". Neither one is right or wrong. They are opinions. We all have them.
With my clients, here is what I am noticing with what they are going through
➡ some feel vulnerable & are opening up about shit that scares them
➡️ some dealing with bouts of depression/anxiety
➡️ the slowing down for some is needed & the slowing down has shown some that they actually need more structure and routine (e.g depression) in their life
➡️ that health really is so important and way more about reps, fatloss and what the scale says
➡️ some are dealing with not being able to control everything & having catastrophizing thoughts
➡️ they are learning more about their strengths & weaknesses
➡️ learning how to ask for help and not do everything themselves
➡️building/reparing relationships w/ friends & family.
If you feel guilty for not doing more or needing to slow down, feel like you're falling behind, trying to people please, pretending you have it together, etc., check in yourself.
Ask: WHY? Why am I holding onto this expectation? What's the pay off I get if it makes me feel like 💩?
Drop the guilt trip on yourself bc some" guru" said you "should" be doing ABC.
Guilt is a viscous cycle that invites anger, grief & resentment into your life.
What are my 1:1 clients doing?
What's right for them.
Bc a lot of us need to build that self trust again.
I've received endless messages from them about how doing mindset coaching & use of cognitive behaviour therapy techniques has been a game changer.
Without it they would have quit. But now know how to change how they think, can cope better & ultimately feel in control of their lives.
So who's beliefs are you following?
