Motivational Monday


Have you ever had one of those mornings where nothing seems to be going right? Well that was me this morning. I woke up a late, my child was moving too slow, lunches weren’t packed, traffic, red lights, and slow trucks. It was almost too much for me to bare. While driving, I actually screamed out loud 2 or 3 times (I was alone at the time…of course). It was very therapeutic. Then I thought, “Only worry about what you can control”. There is a famous quote by Dr. Seuss that says, “Only you can control your future”. I decided to do just that. I could not control the traffic, red lights, or the fact that I missed my alarm clock, so I chose to calm down. Just relax.

Relaxation techniques have been proven to lower mental and physical anxiety. Whether you spend 10 minutes in silence, listening to a relaxation tap, or meditating, it definitely works. If you had a morning like me, then I suggest you try any of these. Writing and running have always been my therapy, so here I am writing because I can’t run at work. Lol! This “Motivational Monday” I hope you remember to relax.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.
