Today was the Walk for Hope, and I am happy to report that we had the largest team since we first participated in 1996 and raised the most money, about $2000. The Foundation of Hope raises money for research of mental illnesses. Their support is unique. The foundation gives so-called seed money which enables researchers to do the preliminary work necessary to apply for grants from the CDC for larger studies. That way, a little goes along way, and the Foundation of Hope has, by this method, been responsible for millions of dollars spent on research.
Deciding to begin a fitness regime is not something that comes easily. If we’re used to a lethargic lifestyle where we are quite happy to lounge in front of the television all day, getting up and running five miles can seem like a hassle. Getting fit is not just about getting your body into shape, it’s about getting into a mindset where daily exercise is not a chore, but a normal everyday occurrence. Of course this motivation is not the only thing the mind is responsible for.
Everyone has those days that nothing is working out for them. Whether your late for work, late for an appointment or maybe rushing to get the kids to school. Being stressed while driving causes road rage most of the time and it becomes easy to take out that anger on other drivers. Everyone has witnessed someone swerving in and out of traffic, yelling at another driver or giving the middle finger. Over the years one thing that has helped me stay calm and relaxed was learning to become a master of my breathing.
A big thing I’ve been preaching to my clients as of late is to persevere through all obstacles. We all have them: injuries, job, family, relationships, and mentally. My words might not always come out like this, but I’m trying to say, “Stay calm, be strong,” more or less. What I mean is that I don’t want clients to become overstressed. Don’t sweat the things you can’t control – the things that are beyond our control. Control what you can control and you’ll take care of business in the other areas.
Everyone has stress, it's a natural occurrence in nature, it's what makes things change and happen, its what gives us that push to go above and beyond what we would normally do. In certain times of your life you'll find that the amount of stress increases due to outside sources, internal pressure, and various other things that are going on in the semi organized chaos that we call life. How you handle the excess stress can make all the difference when it comes to physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
