A few months back, I signed up for a charity race. My company was sponsoring the event. I had to work the vendor table before the race. Naturally, I decided to run the race as well. The problem was that I signed up for the 10K without a training plan! Not the best strategy I assure you. Even so, I began working toward running 6 miles. At first, I ran on the treadmill for 10- 15 minutes. After doing so for a week, I bumped up the time. I ran for 20 minutes, 25 minutes, and so forth. I worked up to 45 minutes comfortably on the treadmill after a few weeks.
- Start any new goal/ venture/ change slowly
- Pace yourself and your progress
- Train with he same activity as your end goal/ event
- Work p to a goal
- Do not overwhelm yourself with a huge goal!!
Peace: In this day and age, it is so difficult to find a mindful calmness. We have distractions, loud music, annoying people, and electronics that keep us busy. Finding peace and quiet almost means locking yourself in an empty room with nothing to do. Or, does it? The secret to outward peace is inward peace. Our minds create peace or chaos depending on what we feed it. If we feed busy distractions and fill our lives with commotion, our body will feel the business. If we fill our minds with peace, quiet, kindness, and compassion, we will feel such. Give yourself some quiet time and your body and mind will thank you.
