Can You See The Good Here?


Over the last few weeks I have been challenging my students to look for the good news regarding their current state of health. Often we are keenly aware of the negative changes that we see and have trouble recognizing the positive. Today, I want you to come up with three positive things that you can say about yourself and/or your state of physical/mental health. Put them in the comments if you like, and I will celebrate with you!


Why? Because taking a moment to celebrate provides motivation. Taking note of how our commitment to exercise has helped us to improve even the smallest aspect of our lives, will inspire us to keep moving towards achieving our fitness goals.


Consider how good we feel when someone acknowledges a job well done. It often fuels our desire to grow and take on new endeavors. Positive recognition is a huge motivator and fuels a better work ethic moving forward. Take some time to see the good in all of the efforts that you have been making over the last two years of this pandemic. I would argue that anyone who has stuck to their fitness workouts, despite the gyms being closed, should be proud and take a moment to celebrate their determination and resilience.


I work primarily with active agers who struggle with coming to terms with certain aspects of the aging process. I often hear this statement, "I am so upset because I used to be able to..." You can fill in the blank with so many different things. I even find myself at 54 starting to say these things but when we constantly focus on the things that we lack, our thoughts negatively impact our ability to perform optimally. If you feel defeated before you even begin, this will impede your progress. If you think you can't, you won't. Instead, set yourself up for success and begin by acknowledging your strengths and build on them for a better, healthier tomorrow.


Tell me three of your strengths!

See you soon,

Beth

Beth, since I started in September 2020, I can now tie my bra without pain in my shoulder, can put my boots on without leaning on the wall or people…and turn my head without any pain… and more 😊! Another litter coming next Saturday…but will be back soon as I can! Thank you for all of your great coaching! ❤️

Hi Beth,

three positives - I sleep well, I exercise without pain in fact it feels great to move, and I feel connected to many people in my life, even without seeing them.

I will be away for the next month visiting children and grandchildren in Florida, and plan to continue classes, as I find them wonderful! Thanks, Beth. Linda Ricketts

I’m extremely proud since I’ve joined this group, so is my husband. No more R hip pain at this time, motivated to begin classes and if I miss a class I always do one of the videos! I always do my very best and when I’m having an off day I will adjust my workout, I believe that’s the key….always adjust and adapt. I’m forever grateful for you Beth and all the wonderful friendships I’ve made….☺️💗

I have stuck with the program for almost 18 months and I am very proud of myself. I have only missed about 3 classes, out of the 4 per week that I do, in that time. Consequently, I am still able to move about relatively well, and my mind (what's left of it!) is still functioning thanks to the physical activity. Thank you Beth!
