Move, Sweat and Feel Good – Don’t complicate it
Beginning 2021 may not be what we had envisaged. Work environments have changed, you’re spending more time alone or away from friends/colleagues, kids may be a part of your workspace along with adjusting to being away from your normal exercise/food routines. That doesn’t mean your physical goals have to change.

Reaching your potential is about finding your stress sweet spot and using it to push you toward your goals. Stressors can energize and inspire you or destroy your motivation and energy. Being completely stressed out can make it difficult to reach your health and fitness goals; and not having enough stress can slow your progress. Too little stress can keep you from reaching your potential; too much stress can damage your health. Stress isn't necessarily a bad thing.
It’s Your Journey
Currently, things are a little different than what they once were in relation to our daily structure. We're used to having structure in our relationships, work, play time, nutrition and sleep. How are you coping with the lack of structure in the past year? Kids have been in and out of school, you may be chopping and changing your workspace or you might have no daily routine which makes it difficult to plan for some self-care or downtime. Maybe, you’ve got your ducks in a row but sometimes that constantly varied

Control The Controllables
You can’t control what happens, but you can control how you react’ I thought I created this quote myself, but turns out the Greek philosopher, Epictetus, said it over a thousand years ago. What exactly does the motto mean to me? Are you similar to me or could this motto help you?
Have you heard the saying “every cloud has a silver lining”? Stoics call this type of thinking “art of acquaintance” (to accept rather than fight every little thing). Amor fati (translated from Latin as ‘a love of one’s faith) can be a recipe for happiness and joy.
PLAY TIME – TIME SPENT WITHOUT PURPOSE
We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing" – George Bernard Shaw. When did we start taking everything so seriously, especially ourselves? When did we stop playing? The notion is that once we reach adulthood, it’s time to get serious. Many of us are focused so heavily on work and family commitments that we never seem to have time for pure fun.
