In a time where so many aspects of life are out of control, there’s one thing that you can always count on: your body. That is, if you take care of it. If you take care of your body, wellness of the mind will follow. And wellness of the mind is something that is direly needed now more than ever.
Another thing that you can control with the mind is how you choose to see the world. You can either look at the world’s current situation as the end of life as we know it, or you can look at it as an opportunity - a brand new beginning. What is completely up to you, though, more than any of these things, is your daily routine.
It’s been proven that exercise of any sort will release endorphins within the brain. So, even by working out for 30 minutes, you’re releasing ‘feel-good’ hormones and making it easier to get through a day. Receiving a harshly-worded email without exercise might have the potential to ruin the rest of your day, but if you have those endorphins on your side, those words might just slide off your shoulders like water to a duck’s feathers.
It all comes down to practicing this routine regularly - both physical and mental exercise. It can start physically, because that’s what most of us are familiar with. When you’ve gotten used to sticking to a physical routine, take a look at the mental side of things. If you don’t know a ton about meditation, start small. Take a few minutes out of each day and list ten things that you’re grateful for. Are you and your family healthy? Do you have a roof over your head, food in your stomach? Taking stock of such things are beginning steps towards finding inner peace.
Practicing a mental wellness schedule each day is just as important as sticking to a training schedule. For many, small problems dictate their entire day. By keeping an open mind and realizing that life is far more than the ins and outs of your work life, you can keep a steadier footing as we get through this uncharted territory.
By sticking to an exercise routine, you’re allowing your mind only to think about the exercise at that point in time. Even if there are big projects due at work, or a coworker that’s driving you crazy, those things won’t be at the forefront of your mind as you’re cycling up a steep hill. Exercising can be a great tool used to wipe clean the slate of your mind and give yourself a break.
Even if you aren’t one for exercising, there’s an option for you.
Performance supplements aren’t used just for aiding workouts, they can be used to assist your entire body as you get through the day. Creating a routine of consuming these supplements can be just as beneficial as moving your body or meditating. Great sleep is essential for productive days, which is why we also offer sleep aid supplements that help you fall asleep and stay asleep so your body can get to work on the healing that it does throughout the night.
If you are an active person and need a boost in your workout, then you should consider endurance supplements that help the body move longer and recover faster.
No matter what type of training schedule works for you - whether it’s based on the body, mind, or what you’re consuming - sticking to it is key. By creating predictability in your schedule, you create stability and reliability in a time that’s centered hugely on uncertainty, and that’s doing yourself a huge favor.
