Control what you can control.
This year has made it difficult to plan when it comes to anything, let alone your fitness. Gyms open, gyms closed, gyms open, gyms closed. Weights have been almost impossible to buy and the whole country realised that whilst running in summer is fun, running as your main source of exercise come October is a bit miserable.
In all reality we know that the first couple of months of 2021 are likely to be much he same. I won’t lie I’ve found this tough at times, every time I’ve felt like I’ve found a rhythm the rug has been pulled from under me and everything has changed again. Not knowing when things will change again makes it tough too.
But we cannot control this. Let’s face it Boris is in charge of the Country and doesn’t seem to be able to control it.
What we can control is how we chose to react in 2021. Maybe that means adjusting your plans right now so that you can do something that makes you feel positive in the next few weeks, even if it isn’t what you’d really hoped to be doing. Maybe it’s just accepting that we need t let go of some things for a bit and worrying about them again some other time.
Remembering there are some things beyond our control but that we can always make a choice in how we react to them is perhaps the most positive change we can make for ourselves this New Year.
