Pandemic Fitness Tips #26

Living a healthy, fit life is about good habits that positively impact your body, your mind and your spirit. When a global pandemic hits and forces us out of our daily routines we have to make some changes and be even more deliberate about taking care of our fitness. I am sharing some of my new fitness habits and they will help you keep your own fitness goals moving in the right direction.

This week’s theme: how to continue to feel productive (a key component of happiness) despite being stuck at home.

Tip #26: out of control. There are lots of things that “might” happen that you can’t control. Focus your efforts on controlling things you can control and not on fretting about the factors out of your control. That is misdirected energy that you are taking away from being at your peak productivity.

Pro tip: practice good risk management. Risk management is focused on identifying those things that “might” happen and reducing the probability that they happen and the impact should they happen. For example, you don’t really have control of whether your company will decide to furlough you right now. All you can do is perform at your best and add value (reducing the probability) and having a plan and a financial safety net if it happens (reducing the impact). Risk management is one of the keys to peak productivity throughout your life.

I know life is different right now and almost every one of us is struggling to find our new “normal.” With some good daily habits this new “normal” can still be a fit life. Good luck and get out there and live your best life. Let’s defeat this virus together!

Pandemic Fitness Tips #25

Tip #25: plan but pivot. Plans are nothing but planning is everything. Plans are important in life to set your course for how you will reach your goals. But life also brings surprises and you have to be ready to adjust. Who could have predicted that we would all be in lockdown for weeks and many people unemployed due to a global pandemic? If you hold on too tightly to plans that are no longer appropriate for the conditions you are facing, you won’t be able to be productive. Build a plan, continually monitor conditions and then deliberately update the plan as needed. That is the core premise of #ProjectManagement BTW!

Tip #24: daily goals. Want to feel productive? Let goals make that happen. Set small daily goals for the things you want to accomplish each day. When you get to the end of the day look back at what you accomplished and instantly realize just how productive you were. Just don’t set overly ambitious goals or they will actually demotivate you and that is the opposite of what you want.

Pandemic Fitness Tips #23

This week’s theme: how to continue to feel productive (a key component of happiness) despite being stuck at home.

Tip #23: ditch the PJs. You aren’t leaving the house and you aren’t seeing other people in real life. This may lead to the temptation to skip that shower and stay in your PJs day after day. By doing this you are starting your day on the wrong foot and risk giving into laziness and lack of motivation. If you get up, take a shower and put on clothes you will retain some normalcy and motivate yourself to have a productive day.

I know life is different right now and almost every one of us is struggling to find our new “normal.” With some good daily habits this new “normal” can still be a fit life. Good luck and get out there and live your best life. Let’s defeat this virus together!
