We here today to dish up your weekly inspo from the VFit team. As you know by now if you have been keeping up reading these, we do not propose any quick fixes or solutions that are not sustainable. We are all about layering on healthy habits and creating a daily habit of movement that you will continue and value for the rest of your life.
Today’s theme is just that: “Quality of life = quality of habits”
At first glance, there’s not too much to that statement. But re-read it again. Now, think about yourself for a moment. How are your daily habits impacting your own health?
Do you wake up early each day and have a morning ritual in place, such as an early bird workout to kick off the day with a bunch of wins? Or maybe you have a power hour of reading and inspiration to start you day.
— OR —
Does your alarm go off, you hit snooze 2-3 times, then grunt and bear it as you swing your legs out of bed, where the world hits you with its demands. Instead of being proactive, you are reactive all day long. Then you hit the bed exhausted and do it all again, over and over.
If you are more in the scenario B camp, most likely you have no set morning routine and you barely want to get out of bed, because you feel like each day you just can’t catch up!
We have good news, you can change that! Right here, right now.
We are huge believers in setting up a morning routine that works for you, one that sets you up early in the day as having accomplished something important, and creates a positive tone/winning attitude that will carry you through your day.
Our early bird classes are the busiest of the lineup at VFit! Probably because VFitter’s are go getters and want to start the day with a body full of energy, fresh blood, oxygen and smiles.
It is amazing how productive you can become when you start your day doing something such as a challenging workout.
All of the sudden instead of dreaming when you can take a nap and dreading your to-do list, feeling overwhelmed and full of anxiety, you now have the mental clarity and physical energy to start marking your to-do list off with stride and pride.
Interview any successful person out there and 9 out of 10 have a solid morning routine in place that begins each day with some version of self care and “me” time.
You can not water from an empty can all day long, you simply can’t.
So if you are finding that your days run you, we challenge you this week to change your approach. Start waking up 30 minutes earlier and setting a routine for YOU! If you have exercise dialed in later in the day, we still encourage you to set some sort of morning routine such as reading, journaling, listening to a podcast, reading a bible, taking a walk, or something else that fills YOUR tank.
At VFit, we of course love a good morning workout to get oxygen to our brain and a body full of energy and purpose, but we all may have something different that fills that tank and we support that.
Remember, routine takes time to build. It may be tough at first to get out of bed a little earlier than usual, but that 30 minute commitment to YOU will pay you back throughout your day. We aren’t suggesting you sacrifice your sleep, and that is why we feel 30 minutes is a powerful enough amount of time to change your life, and not affect your ability to get a full night sleep.
We have created fun, functional, effective workouts that our members set their alarms for and LOOK FORWARD to each day. Even those who never considered themselves “morning” people, have changed their ways by creating this routine of movement to begin their days.
With daily habits of movement and self care, you are prioritizing your own personal health and ensuring that you have the energy, mental well being, and clarity to be there for those in your life that count on you each and every day.
Life is about balance and harmony. By focusing on your daily habits, you make it second nature to include self care into your routine and this has a positive feedback loop that continues to increase your wellness each and every day. You feel SO good, you want to keep going and keep up with all the good stuff you are doing for your body!
