It’s Getting Hot!
It’s finally getting warmer. Call me crazy but I love the heat. Can’t wait till is 90 degrees so we can do workouts outside…ha!
With temperatures climbing up we need to hydrate much more. You need to be drinking at least half your bodyweight in ounces of water everyday. If you’re going to be outside in the sun playing sports or working out you’ll need to double up your water intake. Be prepared and be safe.
Here’s a daily checklist I got from Jordan Syatt. Hope you find it useful 😉
- Accept compliments unapologetically. You shouldn’t be embarrassed, pressured, or feel the need to reciprocate when someone gives you a genuine compliment. All you need to do is say, “thank you, I really appreciate that!” and move on. It’s funny, because it sounds stupidly obvious but very few people — VERY few — are good at this. Most people actually suck at accepting compliments. Which is sort of like sucking at accepting a gift — just take it, say thank you, and get on with your day.
- Entertain the idea that you could be wrong. Most people never do this. Ever. But I’ve always noticed the people who could, at the very least, entertain the idea that they’re wrong in a given situation are not only happier but also way better at getting what they want in life. But it has nothing to do with whether or not they’re actually wrong. Rather, it has everything to do with the way they make others feel about themselves.
- Reward yourself when you achieve a goal. Seriously. This is important. You don’t have to buy a $10,000 vacation or eat a whole cheese cake just because you hit a new deadlift personal record…but take a minute to yourself, recognize your accomplishment, and appreciate the hard work you put into achieving it. It’s too easy to let your victories — however big or small — pass by unappreciated while moving onto the next ‘best’ thing. Which is the fastest way to make sure you never respect how far you’ve truly come.
- Get comfortable being uncomfortable. If you aren’t doing something every day that pushes you outside your comfort zone…you aren’t getting better. So get comfortable being uncomfortable and understand it’s just part of the never ending process of self improvement.
- Brush your teeth with the opposite hand. Or use your phone or eat with your fork in the opposite hand. Doesn’t matter what the actual task is. But recent research has found forcing yourself to complete small — but surprisingly difficult — challenges like this can legitimately increase your willpower in other areas of your life (like nutrition!).
- Remember: Life is Like the Seasons. Sometimes you’re gonna go through winter when things are cold and gray and the sharp wind smacks you in the face. Other times you’re gonna go through spring when things are warm and sunny and everything feels just “right.” The key is to remember this ahead of time. And know you will inevitably go through both good and bad times. So rather than try to avoid the bad and live for the good, plan ahead and roll with the punches as they come.
