Join Lili and I as we delve into the difference between just being scared and living in fear. One is a natural and legitimate reaction. But, the other can have a crippling effect that leaves you vulnerable.
Do we want to look back at this time as a defining moment? Or something that we just got through. Something that we survived, or that we used to thrive? How can we thrive under these circumstances? We talk about it.
Lili talks a lot about meditation, here's what the legendary Kobe Bryant has to say about meditation.
The New Normal
How we can use this opportunity to establish, or reestablish, healthy routines and habits into our days to make them more fulfilling and productive.
The Working Mom
What's it like being a working mom and still making time for yourself?
Basic needs must be met during these times, including movement! It's hard, and one of those things that you hate during the moment, but it's freeing to the mind and obviously essential to your critical well-being. It's easy to make excuses as to why you can't workout, especially when you have little ones.
Laziness has its own momentum.
It's very easy to allow laziness to take over, and let yourself go. Then it becomes harder to get back into things, harder in fact, than it is to stay in them in the first place. Having a coach, workout partner, or accountability partner of some form truly goes a long ways!
The Struggle is Good
Viktor Frankl, in his book Man’s Search for Meaning, often talks about how to endure struggle “in the right way”. It is my opinion, of which has formed by studying the great minds of history, that when confronted with difficult times or people, we have three choices: grow, stay the same, or backslide.
“Smooth seas never made a skilled sailor.” - Franklin D. Roosevelt
What would make a person want to venture into rough seas?
To get to the point of automation, of having habits in place, we have to consciously make the choice to do what’s hard.
To endure struggle the right way.
To have the courage to change what we can.
What we do now prepares us for something later. Therefore, when things do get hard - which they always have, certainly are right now, and will be in the future - then our choice of having been disciplined enough to embrace daily struggle and challenge, instead of the path of least resistance, will have armored ourselves for the tests of life.
