Weekend Posts (7.20.13 ARWOD + 7.21.13 MWOD)

Saturday (7.20.13) Recover like you mean it. Or don’t; I’m not the boss of you.

Sunday (7.21.13)– Physical Rest Day/ Mindfulness Work

I’ve decided to change the description of Sunday’s MWOD aka “Mental Workout of the Day” to “Mindfulness Work.” What is mindfulness? In a nutshell, it is being constantly aware of your surroundings, your current state, your thought process, and your motivations. It’s easy to get lost in the repetitive flow of day to day to life and, if we aren’t careful, we can end up in a semi-robotic, thoughtless state. Being mindful means asking yourself “What am I doing right now?” “Is this adding value to my life?” “Why I am doing this right now?” This practice us step back and think about the larger issues of life more consistently.

Today’s emphasis is on gratitude— often, we may focus on those negative aspects of our life when there are so many positives staring us right in the face. The following video is very powerful– a deaf woman, with the help of technology hears herself for the first time and is so overwhelmed she can’t contain her emotions. Hopefully, this will make you remember the things in your life you are grateful for! Strive to be swole of body, swole of mind, and swole of heart.
