Settling In

By There are no tags 0 comments

Now that the New Year is behind us AND winter storm “Hercules” has come and gone, we can finally settle in and get back to a normal schedule.  A positive routine and good habits are what will lead to success in your fitness goals and beyond.  When you first wake up, add 5 minutes of meditation to your morning.  Find a comfortable place to sit (not slouching), close your eyes, then begin focusing on your breathing.  Utiliize Coach Divine’s “Box Breathing” techniques from the SealFit Academy and the Unbeatable Mind Academy.  Try to build up to 10-15 minutes a day and you will learn a new peacefulness and a renewed energy to tackle the day.
