Coping with stress is something many of us have to manage on a daily basis, as we are thrown in to situations that can be challenging or difficult to cope with.
So what are some of the best ways of coping with stress.?
Balance– having a good work/life balance is essential, make sure you get enough time for you.
Exercise– stressful situations can create excess energy, which can then be discharged healthily and in a positive way through exercise. By doing this you are making these situations work to your benefit.
Relaxation/Mediation– having a daily practice of relaxation and meditation can help you perform well under pressure, as having a calm mindstate that will come more naturally to you.
Explore other ways and options and find what way works best for you. Stress can work positively for us as well as negatively and it’s important to make it work for you. Following strategies that can make all the difference and ultimately put you in charge of the situation.
During the winter months maintaining positive habits can be difficult, however all the more important.
Keeping fit and healthy during the winter will help you to stay mobile and maintain good health, where you may otherwise be more likely to get under the weather.
Sometimes the weather may seem off-putting, when you have to make your way to the gym for example. However remind yourself always of how important it is and how good you will feel afterwards. Stay positive and keep up with your positive habits.
In training what is better fast or slow movement..? Largely it is relative to your purpose and outcome, therefore neither is better, only dependent on what you want to achieve. For most goals however you can achieve the same result with either tempo.
For example for weight loss, training at a slower pace can be a great way to achieve your goals and build your fitness at a rate that is safer. Training at a slower pace is also better for building and maintaining correct movement patterns. It can also be more meditative and help you to focus.
So what are the benefits of a faster speed training?
Depending on your goals, faster speeds can help to exert excess energy or stress and boost cardio levels, it can also help to boost your reaction time.
However the two can and do crossover you can get benefits from both types of training and both will help you improve fitness and lose weight/maintain a healthy weight.
Most importantly is to always listen to your body and be in touch with the needs of your own body and mind, and as always of course, enjoy your training 🙂🙏💫
Exercise after a prolonged illness/injury can be a bit scary for some. Not knowing the right things to do or worring that it may make things worse can be some of the main concerns.
From personal and professional experience I have found the following to be most helpful;
Have a firm faith and vision for your recovery- see how you want to be and work your way towards it step by step.
Listen to your body and stay empowered-work with your body and what’s within your control and measure your outcomes from there.
Support your exercise plan with adequate nutrition- just as important and sometimes more so is your diet, its essential that you get the right nutrients for your recovery. Do your research and get advice as needed.
Overall you must believe you can improve, believe you can and you will. This will empower you to take all the actions you need and maintain it.
Empower yourself within and results will come without 🙏💫
A lot of people before they start exercise feel they don’t have enough time. Here are 3 top reasons of how and why to find the time.
Make it a priority- Once it’s a priority you’ll find the time, book it in your diary like any other important appointments.
You’ll have more energy and more time – with regular exercise you’ll find you have more energy and be more efficient with your time.
Without health there’s not time for much else– it can sound a harsh truth but without our health we will struggle to do much else. Make it a priority before it has to be and reap all the benefits from doing so. Your health is 100% worthy of your time and effort.
What we value most we will always find the time for, therefore it makes the most sense to value something of such importance and then you’ll always find the time.
