Welcome back to New Year..New Challenge and hello week 12!
Firstly, I hope you all had a great week and secondly, I hope you found those 5 min that I challenged you to use last week so that you can take some time out to relax. If you did, I hope you found it beneficial for you?
This week I want to have a bit of a re-cap week and make sure that you are focusing (or re-focusing) on some of the challenges that have been set.
30 min of exercise – This was from week 1. Make sure that you can give yourself 30 mins each day in which to exercise. Why 30 min? Simple. It is suggested that it is easier to find 30 min to exercise than 60 min. Also, exercising for 30 min leaves you less likely to eat after training than 60 min – great if you want to shift some unwanted pounds.
Gratitude Jar – From week 2. The challenge is to write atleast one thing down at the end of each week that you are/have been grateful for. Nothing too complicated, but write it down and put it in a jar. At the end of the year you can open the jar and see what you have been grateful for over the year.
Be Mindful – This is about being aware of yourself and your surroundings. Too often do we go around with our minds elsewhere and miss something. It is also a great way to relax and be in the present. So at some point in your day, take 5 min to really appreciate where you are, what your surroundings look and sound like. Be mindful and be present.
Goal Check – This is simple – check on how your goals are going for 2017. Goals are there so that you can keep yourself grounded but also focused. Check on how your goals are going and if you have swayed off a little, don’t just throw the goal away, re-assess and adjust the goal so that you still have something to focus on.
So, that is this weeks challenge. Review the first 4 weeks of challenges and make sure that you are staying on track
Have a fit and healthy week
