Cultivating a strong mind can become one of your most powerful choices in your journey to achieve a better future, both personally and professionally. There are some incredible tools that you can add to your daily routine to kick start this decision in the right direction. They are simple and they take very little time out of your day to complete.

 

 These tools are:

  • Journaling

  • Reading

  • Meditation

Start with a gratitude journal, write down three things you are grateful for every morning, or even at night before you go to bed. 

 

Reading speeds by individuals vary, but on average if you read 10 pages a day you will read around 10-12 books in your first year. 

 

Meditation can be misconstrued; I suggest beginning with 1-2 minutes of listening to your own breath.  This is a good starting point to begin feeling what it’s like to be in parasympathetic mode. You can work your way up to 10-15 minutes with some practice.

 

Take it in small strides and eventually work your way up to having all three of these in your daily routine. They transformed my life and I hope They do the same for you.

The absolute best way to begin your fitness journey is by starting ;) Ok I know everyone knows that but what I feel everyone is missing (seem my comments) is a strong foundational base before diving into the heavy weights with bad form.

 

To be the most prepared for the heavier weights and for showing how strong you truly are, I would highly recommend beginning with your own bodyweight and learning the classic exercises like the Push Up and the Pull up. This form of training can be taken a step further with Calisthenics training. Calisthenics is a bodyweight training system that will improve your movement, mobility, create body awareness, amazing control and will strengthen areas that weights cannot.  It is VERY easy to take anywhere and everywhere. Don’t be fooled though, your body is an amazing machine and you will be quite surprised to see what these classic exercises can become. Picture a back lever or l-sit (Google it if you have too), it’s something all people can achieve and the absolute BEST way to start training before you learn how to squat, bench and deadlift or bicep curl ;)
