SO MANY CONTRIBUTING FACTORS
Last week wasn't the greatest, due to many reasons. My back has been giving me a fair bit of trouble, my expenditure was super low, I spent the week freezing on an uncomfortable seat/floor studying, I had exams to do (when severely dyslexic this can bring alot of stress on top of the normal exam stress) and an increase of weight controlled the reflection I 'seen'. Now looking back on check in pictures I see something totally different. 5 weeks post show. Still weighing lighter than I was 5 weeks out, Im still pretty tight, I'm eating more, doing little to no cardio and damn am I happy. Don't let a bad day/week ruin the true reflection of yourself. I could have gone way of the rails based on what i seen of myself at check in, but I'm glad i held out and now can see what truly is a strong ass lil lifter #befearless#bestrong#selfreflection#selflove#pma#mentality
How are you feeling this Tuesday?
Todays focus is TENSION TUESDAY
Stress and tension seem to be an integral part of life.
Wherever you go, they go after you. Everyday challenges can present stress and tension from experiences at work, home and in relationships.
Sometimes, you can eliminate or change the external cause, and sometimes you cannot. Often, when you cannot change the external cause, you become more stressed. If you can deal with the external cause that’s okay, but what if you cannot?
10 Tips to Relieve Stress and Release Tension
Pay attention to your body and to your muscles. Are they contracted and tense? Release the tension. Pay special attention to your face and scalp, and if you feel that they are tense, release the tension.
Drinking a cup of water helps too. If you feel stressed or tense before going to sleep at night, a glass of milk, warm or cold can make you feel more relaxed.
Think about the thoughts that are causing you the stress and tension. In many cases, it is possible that you have created a mountain in your mind that does not exist in reality. Thinking positively about the situation can you bring new ideas for solving it, and therefore, eliminate the stress.
If the stress is caused by other people, talk to them about it. Don’t bottle it up. Sometimes, people don’t know what they are causing you, and a little relaxed conversation can do wonders.
Find causes to laugh. Watch a comedy on TV, or read something funny.
Leave everything that you are doing at the moment, and take a walk outside.
