Health Tip

Let’s talk about reigniting your passion for life!! For this, we talk about The 4 C’s:

CONNECT

Life is about connecting with yourself and others. The relationships we form help us move from our heads to our hearts. When we are struggling, recoiling and pulling back rarely bring joy. Engage with people who will help you rise and challenge your growth!

CREATE

Baking! Art! Solving problems! Get creative with your ideas! Take the same activity you were going to do, but then ask yourself if you can make it more fun and interesting! Take an idea or action and evolve it!

CLEAR

It’s important that you’re continually checking in with yourself and clearing out anything that’s no longer serving you.

“Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.”
~ Robert Tew
Those things could include old beliefs, habits, people, activities, etc.  Clear up and clean up your world.

CONTRIBUTE

Consider contribution as not just money. Sometimes it is as simple as bringing joy to a room you enter. Maybe helping another person find their smile. Contribute to this world by making it a better place through your love.

Time can pass so quickly that I hope you slow down to acknowledge your accomplishments, be present in a moment each day and map out your next steps toward your goals.  Check out this cool video from Vinh Giang to learn more about Recalibration!

  • Many of you are now lifting heavier than you ever have before! We are so proud of your progression! As you get higher into certain movements like the deadlift, grip strength can be an issue. We have ordered a couple wrist straps for people to try in the coming weeks but if you would prefer to have your own, check the link above!

Health Tip

The New York Times recently ran an article called “Why Exercise is More Important Than Weight Loss for a Longer Life.” You can create a free account through the NYTimes to view it through the link but let me highlight some of the main points for you!
The article referenced this study/review and many others which looked at the question of whether weight loss should be at the center for the focus. It was found that working on your fitness more than weight loss was the greatest benefit for overall health and a longer life.
As we all know, a person can do some VERY unhealthy things to achieve certain goals on the scale. That is the main reason we don’t measure weight loss nor focus our approach on this outcome here at Mindset. Our hope for you is to achieve a healthy lifestyle and deeper relationship with yourself!
