Yes, you are a life athlete! How do I know this? You have committed yourself you growing everyday. You look for opportunities to serve, to excel and achieve your intentions and goals. You have at least several to many multiple “events” that you do everyday; your occupation and purpose fulfillment, relationship commitments, home and body maintenance, kids, pets, friends and loved ones and the energy you put forth to keep them all well fed and loved. With all of these chosen events that you run with each and every day of your life do you take care of your mind and body like the champion you are? The good news is that with thoughtful dedication and a winning mindset you will thrive in your chosen events and make each day a gold medal performance!
Inspired and effective preparation is paramount to succeed in all of your important events and to create and express your divine athletic performance. You can raise the bar in each an every event in your day by taking the time to outline your intentions and desired outcomes. Take a look at what you have in front of you each day, ask yourself how you would like to be in that experience; do you want and need sustained energy? Are some of your events likely to produce stress? How can you keep your mind aligned with Spirit, peace and balance in spite of your challenging environment?
Prepare your mind and body to “win” in each of these areas by honoring and living these principles for success as a life athlete; first, work out every day. Inspired daily exercise will bolster your confidence, your stress resiliency, your energy and mental game and outlook. Choose to move first thing in the morning before your events, walk, run, do yoga, do anything that moves you. If you feel that you do not have enough time in the morning than simply commit to doing at least 10 minutes, and move for 10 minutes more mid day and 10 minutes more at the end of your day to celebrate your daily wellness victory.
Eat like a champion. Feed your mind and body with premium fuel. Whole grains, lean proteins, healthy fats, fruits and vegetables are sustained energy sources. Always eat in regular intervals-never skip meals; breakfast, lunch and dinner are critical supports and use your mid morning and mid afternoon snack windows as “aid stations” along your daily marathon course to fuel up, re-balance and fortify yourself for the next leg of the journey.
Lastly, all elite athletes like yourself use visioning to set the highest intention and ideal outcome. Use your personal power and see yourself performing with grace, power, light and love. Be on fire with purpose and passion. Enjoy your body, enjoy your life.
