“Almost any decision is better than no decision — just keep moving.” – Danielle LaPorteSometimes thinking too much can destroy momentum. Be decisive and show up!
Rabbit, Rabbit! Happy December, Bulls! Welcome to our final month in this bizarre year. Let’s finish strong. Take some time this week to set a powerful new intention on what you’d like to accomplish in 2021. These healthy intentions and aspects will help us formulate our goals and lend us the energy/guidelines we need to progress towards our dreams.
Momentum is very big. Think of your daily healthy habits as a snowball down a snowy hill (fitting for the winter season!). There is no better time to start your “2021 New Year’s Goals” than today.
Rewire Winter Blues Psyche
December is often a tough time for me mentally. The weather starts getting colder and the days start getting shorter. I have taken so much pride in my running practice since the start of the pandemic back in April. I hit another 100k running month in November. I want to find a way to keep that momentum up for the Spring, but realize it will be difficult in the cold weather. I have never been a winter runner before, but maybe this year is different? I am getting a Peloton towards the end of the month, and I have a tendency to get obsessive over things(try to channel that into a healthy obsession). Especially a community built for working out! There is something about being part of a group that wants to become the best version of themselves. You are your environment. You are who you surround yourself with. Excited to take a bit of break from my shoe to pavement running and start being part of the #SpinGang.
Take some time this week to sit with yourself and set some goals/ intentions you want to work with this month. They don’t need to be too complex and deep, but make sure you are able to do them. Don’t let it be a “challenge” or just a phase you will soon forget after this month. Focus on what we talked about above and build momentum towards the new year. Let’s have a great month!
Happy November! There is something about the start of a new month. The seasons are shifting and the leaves are starting to turn. We turned back the clocks last night so it’s going to get darker around 4:30pm now. This has always been a challenge for me and sometimes I self diagnose myself with SAD (Season Affective Disorder). This year I am excited to use little tools and habits to combat the ole seasonal blues. It doesn’t hurt that I can see the Atlantic Ocean from my living room! There is something to say about that from a psychological aspect seeing such a naturally large body of water. Humbles and helps put certain things in perspective. November is going to get politically hectic, I am aware of this but some of this stuff I can’t control and I don’t want the uncontrollable holding me prisoner and affecting my day to day life. It still is important to be involved and aware of what is going on in our country… crazy times the United States is going through right now. Unfortunately, this is the most divided I have seen our country. Hopefully we can find a happy balance. This month I will be conscious about controlling what I can control. That is one of my few main themes for November.
New Months, new goals, new intentions, new mindset , new focus, new results! Even though I find myself growing and getting better, there can always be progress and and healthy life advancements.
Let’s have a great month!
PS- First “Flexibull” podcast dropping this week. Also have some new cool stuff coming this month for the brand. Stay tuned.
Happy October! Cheers to a new month. Cheers to new goals. Cheers to making it a great one.
September was a great month for me personally. I hit my Nike Run Club achievement of 50 miles in a month. Yesterday I ran my personal best 10K run at a pace of 7’56! I am so proud of myself and all of the hard work I put in. To be honest, my month of September didn’t start out all that great.. but I was proactive about being aware of what WASN’T working and making a conscious choice to fix it to better myself. I am going to continue to use this momentum into this new month.
New month but also a full moon! It is a bit eerie but also exciting. October 1st and a full moon. I feel a very powerful energy in the air and emotions can definitely get heightened during this time. On Sep 17, 2020 there was a new moon and I set some pretty good intentions for myself. My choices have become a bit more magnified during this full moon but it’s also a time where I can really enjoy them and appreciate them manifesting in all their glory.
(SIDE NOTE – I am not a big astrology guy as that paragraph and the paragraph to come make me out to be)
Heading into this month I am feeling a great deal of confidence and self-acceptance of myself. I feel like I have been soaking in the benefits from my actions over the last few weeks.
Things this full moon has to offer:
Ability to be strong, take action and initiate on feelings.
Have to find a happy balance with this type of energy. No big highs, no big lows.. stay present and balanced.
I have been feeling confident and very in touch with myself. Feel like I am starting to become more and more comfortable with my own rhythms, cycles and patterns of myself. Like I said in the beginning, finding what works and what doesn’t. Life will always throw obstacles your way, it is about dealing with adversity and coming out stronger. Still working on that skill set one day at a time. Can’t wait to crush my first run of the month and first true run under a full moonlight!
So here is to a great month of October. Happy to be sharing my journey with all of you. Make it a great one!
