Are you feeling out of Whack? Like your life isn't even recognizable?
Boy, that's how I'm feeling these days. My normal routine doesn't exist. I am working more than ever and I feel pretty much overwhelmed all the time....
I took a step back and thought - What in the world is going on? Why do I feel tipped upside down?
Answer: My normal routine isn't normal any more.....
What I mean is, my day began early in the morning with training hours at the studio, working with memebrs, doing office work and of course home duties.
So what changed? The events of the world around me.... I no longer can use my fitness studio. I do not have personal contact/connection with my members every day. I'm relying on social media, email, text, phone and virtual streaming to conduct business. Just learning all the technology pieces have about fried my brain.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. There is a learning curve for sure....
What am I doing about it?
Routine, connection and being grateful.
Keeping my class schedule and my members training schedules consistent helps me to stay on task. I have to be prepared for meeting with them and providing a workout that will help them continue to get results.
Accountability works two ways - members to me and me to them. Knowing I have to be prepared and ready to help and serve them keeps me accountable too. I can't just sluff off and say "I'll do it later". I have to be there on time and ready to go.... Routine for sure.
I've had to up my game and learn alot of technology in a very short time. Lots of mistakes and fumbles along the way but each day gets better.
Seeing faces and names and being able to talk to each other virtually is such a blessing. I remember thinking growing up that face to face talking was like the Jetson's tv show - it will never happen and yet here it is! Connection - so important to overall wellbeing.
Being grateful that I have so many tools to use for everyone. That is such a blessing. A few years ago, none of this would have been possible.
Looking for ways to be grateful can be difficult but so rewarding. It takes your eyes off of the problems and focus on greater things. It just makes you feel better.
So, are you out of whack? If Yes, what are you doing about it?
