Feeling stressed? You’re not alone

This is the biggest challenge in the fitness industry over the past 12 months

People are stressed and finding it harder than ever to stay fit and healthy

Which in turn makes you less able to deal with stress

A vicious cycle

Here are 4 ways to help you deal with stress

  1. Focus on what you can control

It’s completely valid to feel stressed about things you can’t control 

Acknowledge that

And then move to what you can control, total control 

Spend a couple of minutes writing down the things you can control and you’ll often find something that can be actioned, right now

Spend more time focussing on those things and you’ll probably feel a bit better pretty quickly 

2. Clean slate policy

You will fall off. 

And again. 

This is normal, the key is to get back on the horse

Acknowledge what happened, investigate in a factual way, writing can really help with this

Identify the thoughts and feelings, acknowledge these are normal and realise that what you did helped, even if it’s not the ideal method

Maybe even right down a couple of better methods for the future

And, move on.

3. 5 minute action

This isn’t the first time I’ve spoken about small actions

Rather than thinking about the perfect diet or exercise regime or schedule

Pick something really easy to start and that will move you in the right direction

And do it!

4. Breathe

A breathing practice can be a life saver


The navy seals use box breathing during combat to help them calm their nervous system and think clearly

You can calm anxiety in a matter of minutes, if not seconds

There are many breathing practices

Pick one that sounds good to you and take a 5 minute action
