A relaxed mind? 

PRESS PAUSE!

A good way to improve your resistance both physically and mentally, is to relax. That sounds crazy right? However, it really works like that! By relaxing on a regulary basis, your autonomic nervous system will calm down. Wait, what..? 

Your autonomic nervous system determines if you are in the action or resting mode. Think about us as hunters and gatherers who are in a cave (resting mode, everything is safe) or outside of the cave (action mode, looking for food). Nowadays we are mainly in the action mode and we are under a lot of pressure. Because we do not press the pause button from time to time to go to the resting mode, our autonomic nervous systems becomes overloaded. When it is overloaded, this energy radiates to the rest of your body and therefore your resistance is deteriorated. In that way, our mind can make us feel worse physically.

Home: Planning and full batteries

Smart planning 

Working on your fitness, health and vitality in these times can be difficult. When your partner and / or children are at home too, it may require some extra organization. It is certain that a good planning provides you with time and serenity. What is it what you do when making a planning? You think carefully and develop a plan step-by-step. Then you can stop thinking and simply implement your plan. That gives a lot of peace and control. It makes sense, but it really is a game changer if you're looking for more balance. The better you organize your life, the more you can handle. And the better you can deal with a setback or handle a stressful situation. But also planning does require practice. The more you do it, the better you get at it. Look for a simple example at https://sochicken.nl/weekplanning-making. Make your goals concrete and achievable to yourself (SMART). After all, small steps can lead to a greater result.
