Reflecting over last Wednesday’s Between Meals Chat, Fitness Focus. Rosenna Bakari brought up a very easy formula to follow when thinking about fitness. There are 4 easy pillars:
- Speed: Yes, being quick is a bonus, but it is more than just being fast. Speed also refers to the ability to recover from a workout, illness, or stressful situation quickly. Being fit is about a whole lifestyle, eating balanced and exercise regularly has to be part of your daily life. Ideally exercise 30 minutes, drink plenty of water, and get in 7 cups of fruits and vegetables a day.
- Balance: Mostly overlooked and there are not very many activities one can do to improve balance. The best thing is yoga and improved posture. Stream some examples and go for it at home.
- Endurance: This equals how long you can do something. Nutrition, sleep, and mental space plays a large portion on how good you feel doing an activity. You have the option to take supplements like pre-workout drinks. Ideally, though, you will want to be able to have the endurance without a chemically induced drive.
- Strength: Becoming strong gives you an effortless confidence. Especially women who are around men when working out will have an increase comfort in having difficult conversations. Think about fitness differently. The best take away is, if you can push, pull, lift, and lower your own weight – you are in a good place.
Remember your size does not matter. The most healthy life is filled with confidence, mobility, and sanity. Now, that’s sexy. 😉 Working out is self-care.
Attend our next Wednesday Between Meals: On the Money on May 10th with Rosenna Bakari, Author/Psychologist. We will talk about the way you think about money and how to add value to your life. Some people chase money, because they are too scared to chase their dream.
