Many of those in the 40fit Nation are in week three (or longer)
of city or statewide lockdowns, and dire headlines continue to
dominate the media outlets. So Coach D and Trent are sharing today
some ways they are staying positive and productive in the midst of
- Be purposeful with your media consumption.
Maintain an analytic mindset about the facts, the source of the
facts, and be aware when media is making an emotional appeal rather
than reporting the facts (which is just about all the time).
- Make lists of the positive things in your life right
- Spend time in meditation or prayer. Carve out
some space and time for quiet, solitude, and study or
- Maintain your routine. Even if you have to
create a new routine, find a schedule that works and stick to
- Be productive. Take up a hobby. Do some yard
work or spring cleaning. Read that book you’ve had on your list for
a long time. You don't have to be a superhero here, but getting
things done brings a sense of accomplishment.
Lastly, give yourself some grace. Some people are suffering more
than others right now, and these tips may seem impossible for those
most affected by the virus and economic conditions right now.
That's ok. We are calling everyone in the 40fit Nation to do their
best and stay accountable to each other, but we also need to be
kind to ourselves and each other.
