Happy Monday and February, guys! I know we’re all thinking it and saying it, but we’re already entering the second month of 2016!
I know many people are against resolution making, and let’s be honest, there are probably MANY people who have already fallen off the wagon with theirs. Especially with the resolution of fitness, which is probably why many people don’t bother with resolutions.
Sometimes what we intend to do and what we end up doing don’t align. So, this month I’ve decided to create something that will help you set conscious intentions for yourself as well as workouts that will leave you feeling motivated.
For some folks, setting intentions works much better than setting long-term goals. Intentions force us to connect with our desires as well as what we may be subconsciously resisting in our lives. By focusing on one intention daily, it can lead to a greater sense of accomplishment and happiness.
I have created a workout legend to coordinate with each daily intention for February (and it’s a Leap Year, this time, you guys — 29 days!). If you subscribe to my blog, you can receive an intention action to apply to your day along with a workout you can perform with it.
So, as today is the first day of February, let’s kick it off with our first intention of the month: Laughter.
Laughter is truly one of the most healing mental health tools at our disposal. Laughter decreases stress hormones in our bodies and studies show individuals who regularly laugh have stronger immune systems and produce pain-reducing endorphins. Today your intention is to find the humour in things. If something stressful comes your way, try and find the funny side of it. Even though not every situation is appropriate to start laughing your “ass off” at, there are certainly ways to take much less offense to them.
Here’s the February Intentions Workout legend! Find the exercise that corresponds with the letters in today’s intention and go! For beginners, start with one round and work your way up to 2-3 as you go through the month. For those of you who are more advanced and want to add this to your workout routine, go for 3-4 rounds!
