Overcome discouragement!
June 19, 2014

Say no to self pity

Everyone gets discouraged from time to time.

But dealing with fibro. takes it to another level.

Today I just want to share a few tips on how to overcome the feeling and how to get on with what's important - getting stronger.

FATIGUE - will drag you downnnnnn.

It's important to disconnect everyday , even for a few short minutes. You cannot burn the candle at both ends and think it won't catch up to you.

Take a walk, breathe, stretch, exercise - anything to give your mind a break. Lay off the caffeine...

After you get fatigued - you become FRUSTRATED.

You feel and then start to believe you will never get better.

How dangerous that mind set can be.

It's important to refocus your mind and energy on getting better.

Eat better, move better, laugh harder - whatever it is move forward trusting that your future holds promise-

After frustration you move to SELF-PITY.

Don't start complaining or blaming other people.

It's your life, like it or not - Own it...

It's the only one you are going to get, So as hard as it may be - you must make the most out of it.

Another one of our clients will be running a half marathon this weekend at the San Juan Island Marathon, WA USA.

Another one will run a spartan race in Washington DC.

Maybe you can't run a marathon, but surely you can eat better.

Let's Go folks, it's your time to shine.

Tomorrow is promised to no one!
