Which means I want you to take time to reflect on the week. Specifically, it is day 21: reflect on giving thanks.
Let’s revisit our questions from the beginning of the week.
A reminder that these questions were:
- What are you grateful for? Why?
- Who are you grateful for? Why?
- When is the last time you told that person you are grateful for him or her?
- What is something (or more than one thing) about your health that you are grateful for?
In addition, think about the following:
- How can you make an effort to show your gratitude for the people in your life?
- How can you foster feelings of gratitude every day? Meditation and journaling are great examples!
- How can you have more appreciation for yourself and your body?
How did you do?
Did you take time to appreciate all the wonderful things in your life?
Getting back to routine
I know that post-holidays it can be tough to transition back into your normal routine. There may still be leftovers in the fridge. Or maybe your body is still craving the junk food which makes you want to buy it at the store when shopping for the week.
The first transition back to your routine is the hardest part! Once you commit to starting that transition, it isn’t as difficult as you think. If you make it through the grocery store without buying unhealthy foods, you can make it through the week. If you take initiative to move your body today, it makes it easier to do again tomorrow.
Don’t think all progress is lost from a couple of days!
Seriously, not all progress is lost! Just jump back into your routine and you will be good to go!
Take some time to reflect today during your workout!
For today, do whatever feels good for a workout. Maybe it is a walk or a jog. Maybe it is a low-impact strength workout. Or a high-impact/high-intensity one! Whatever feels good today and will get you moving again to set the tone for next week, do it!
That’s all I have to say for day 21: reflect on giving thanks. Be sure to take your gratitude into the rest of the year!
