The last nine months were a whirlwind from COVID, riots, natural disasters to a continuing wild presidential election in the US. From the 20,000 ft. view, we are on the path to a great reset. While this can be difficult to see while we are in the depths of a downward spiral, these times are setting us up for a greater tomorrow. History is filled with examples of the call for the destruction of the world only for the low point and turn upward to be around the corner. While I do not intend to downplay what is going on in our world, it is up to you to take the steps to change the world around you.
We are all feeling a little worn down, stressed out, and even a little over-served as the year is coming to an end. You can continue to allow external events to control your actions and feelings or, you can take action and come out of this better than you were before.
Are you ready for a change? Are you ready to thrive instead of simply survive? Describing yourself as “fine” is not ok. Fine means you are typically tired, lack quality sleep and have more you can give to your career, family, community, and yourself. Moving from “fine” to “thriving” requires you to make changes in your life. The unknown of change can be intimidating, resulting in people spending years of their life stuck in comfortable misery. Change doesn’t have to be drastic. Making small changes each and every day add up to big results and takes you from “fine” to “thriving” in life.
To help you get started on your path to thriving, the 6 foundational principles to optimal health and human performance are: Mindset, Breathing, Hydration, Nutrition, Movement, and Rest. Beginning next week, I will cover each of these in more detail to set you up to start thriving in 2021. Don’t be afraid to make small changes in your life to get out of the comfortable misery. While it can be scary, the potential is unlimited.It is time you begin thriving!
