Jodi’s Philosophy on Fitness to Combat Burnout
“Balance is the epiphany that you don’t have to be everything to everyone, all of the time.”―Vanessa Autrey
Ask yourself what drives and motivates you. Is it intrinsic or extrinsic? Is it something you are willing to do short-term or long-term? We all have a baseline for where we start and a limit that we can work toward.
I believe in progressive and consistent increases in work, rest, and responsibilities over time.
I also believe that there are seasons and reasons to push and work hard and seasons and reasons to rest and reset. What season are you in currently? What are your reasons for pushing or resting? Making choices based on these can help us learn to listen to our bodies.
Jodi’s Fitness Tips to Combat Burnout
Define your boundaries and time for self-care, exercise, and proper nutrition. Start small to provide success through small wins and increase from there.
Celebrate your wins with something you enjoy that stays within the boundaries of improved health and wellbeing, such as a massage, workout gear, or clothing.
Include others in your goals and aspirations for health, providing accountability, support, and even a little healthy competition!
