Fit For Thought: Sometimes running is the only thing that makes sense.

I’m back!!!… Hello out there and HAPPY TUESDAY TO YOU! Why such a long break?… I just haven’t felt inspired to write. I stopped writing for my blog in July of 2018 and haven’t really logged on since. I’ve been in a season of waiting. I was trying to figure out something to write, and I just didn’t know what I wanted to say… frustrating right?

Although in what some call a “rut” I was (and still am) growing. More than ever I am exercising more regularly, eating better, and definitely taking care of my mental health. I’ve began a new project, and working to transition my career. To add the cherry on top, I just got back from a trip to Jamaica! With all this going on, I still felt some way about writing. I asked myself… what can I do?

I know when life is just not making sense or I feel like I can’t handle it all, I RUN. I run because number one, I am a runner at heart. Number two, it just allows me to be me, and number three, sometimes it is the only thing that makes sense. I can control it. I have fun with it, and of course it is making me healthier. This type of self care never gets old!!!

What is it that you do to make sense of it all. Is it something physical? Is it sitting in silence? I don’t quite know, but running makes my mind, body, and spirit stronger. I feel more centered. More like Dominique.

The older I get the more I realize how important my health is to me, so I encourage you today to find something that just helps you make sense of it all. Find something to promotes you living a healthier life.Β That makes you come alive. Something that you can do on your own terms.

I am Dominique Michele, and running is my first love.

Be well you guys!

Live. Love Well & Fit.

Emotional Health

So I took a week off preparing for Fitness Night Out, but I am back with the dimensions of wellness. This week we are on emotional health. This dimension is all about being able to express your emotions appropriately, and controlling them when they are shall I say… not so appropriate. It also involves love, trust, sadness, self esteem and many other emotions. Like I always tell my clients if you are more aware that something is going on (good or bad) emotionally, the better you will be able to respond to various situations and also give friends and family fore warning. So let’s improve our emotional health this week. No matter what comes your way this week respond don’t react in every situation.

Social Health

Sometimes the best social interactions can come in the form of a workout buddy or from group exercise. You forget your exercising and enjoy the time together. Statistically you are more likely to reach your fitness goals with the added support. Sounds like a win win to me!

Daily Meditation

What are your thoughts of practicing daily meditation? I believe it is an affective way to connect with your spirit man is to set aside at least 10 minutes a day in silence. I usually choose when the kids are sleep. Make it a time to reflect. You may find yourself drifting to sleep or you may end up hearing or speaking with God. Try it out tonight or in the morning. Continue to work on your spiritual man all this week. You got this!

Practice Gratitude

A great tool I used to connect and work on my spiritual health is to practice gratitude. Increasing your level of gratitude feels you with an enormous amount of thankfulness that will help you appreciate life. I try to practice it daily, not to mention it is my top character strength. I challenge you tomorrow morning before you get out of bed to say one thing you are grateful for and then start your day. I hope it helps you! Be well. πŸŒΏπŸ’–πŸ’ͺ🏽#dimensionsofwellness #spiritualhealth #livelovewellandfit #bossupforhealth #iamwellandfit #tuesday #fitmom #fitness #health #exercise #wellness #wellandfitcoaching

Spiritual Health

Dimensions of Wellness Week #2. Spiritual Health. The need to believe in a higher power and learning how to maintain it in life has always been a cornerstone for my health. When everything is in line with God I feel so much better.

Fit For Thought

So many people I come across claim they don’t have enough time to exercise. Well try a HIIT workout and burn more calories in a shorter amount of time. I did 30 minutes tonight and I was done. Swipe left to see 3 examples of great HIIT exercises you can do right at home.

Be intentional

We use movement everyday. From the simplest tasks to the more complicated ones, but are you being intentional? Are you setting aside the time to exercise? You can also do small things like park further to accomplish more steps or take the stairs. Even household chores can be an intentional physical activity. For example washing the dishes, mopping the floor, or cleaning the table and counter tops. All this can count as a physical activity. Just think “ALWAYS BE INTENTIONAL”

Use your environment

You don’t need a fancy gym or equipment to accomplish you fitness goals. Take care of your physical health by using your environment. I remember when I had my fitness class we would run up hill, use our body weight, side walks, and benches to get our workouts in. You are only limited by your own imagination. Get out there and do it! πŸŒΏπŸ’–πŸ’ͺ🏽
