Day 2 of the program - Mental Game

How is your mental game? Day 2 of the New Year, New You in 365 Days covers this very important part of your health and fitness. From beginner to seasoned athlete, we can be hard on ourselves, doubt our ability to succeed, and just feel unhappy about life. 

What you think and believe about yourself plays a large role in who you are and what you accomplish. The body really does achieve what the mind believes. Positivity is a choice and it requires a mental reset of unhealthy thought patterns. Self-bashing, negative thoughts and self-sabotage will need to be replaced with believing you CAN achieve success.

Changing your attitude and thoughts happen one day at a time. Each day you will love yourself more and eventually adopt a healthy mindset necessary for your life and health. The following tips will be helpful to improve your mental game:

  • Believe in yourself.
  • Choose to be positive.
  • Avoid bashing yourself to you and others.
  • See obstacles as learning/growing opportunities.
  • Take one day at a time.
  • Be proud of yourself.
  • Celebrate small daily accomplishments.
  • Don't feel guilty for eating off track occasionally (this is human not failing).
  • Allow yourself to be a beginner.
  • You're not being judged.
  • You can do it!

What is depression?

Depression is a common yet complex mental health condition affecting more than 16 million adults and 3 million adolescents in the US each year. People with depression feel sad, empty, or hopeless much of the time. It’s more than a case of the blues; depression looms like a storm cloud that won’t let sunshine peak through. It saps the joy of being with friends and family. People can lose interest in hobbies, sex, and other pleasurable activities, and they may have trouble eating or sleeping.

Some cases of depression have a genetic component, but lots of factors beyond an inherited tendency can spur and aggravate depression symptoms, including various environmental factors.

Reduce Sugar Intake to Get Fit, Healthy, and Reduce Body Fat - Day 30 New Year, New You

Are you eating too much sugar? Many of us may not even realize hidden sugar is contained in many foods being consumed. Also, much of the food we eat is converted into sugar.

Is the Latest Fitness Trend—Here’s Why That’s a Problem

Quick, what comes to mind when you think of a marriage proposal? Probably a man on bended knee. Well, now you need to add a lady doing squats to that image of betrothal bliss. Because the new trend out there is something called “proposal shape.” Yes, that’s right: Before you’re a shredded bride, you now need to be a fit fiancée.

It’s no longer enough to be skinny when you say “I do.” A number of today’s women are pressuring themselves to be hard-bodied by the time they say “Yes.” As in, “Yes, I’ll marry you! Just let me do a few burpees before we take a selfie so I can tighten my glutes in this fantastically new, flattering bodycon dress I happened to throw on even though I had absolutely no idea you were going to propose this evening! Hold my kettlebell.”

Proposal shape is a tight and curvy metaphor for how out of whack our expectations of the whole wedding process are and the ridiculous pressure women place on themselves during the whole bridal experience. Girlfriends who are pre-f…
