I’ve got this whole fitness thing pretty much figured out: I go indoor rowing and cycling at Saddle Row (review soon) during the week and I lift weights at Fitness First on weekends. It’s an effective routine for me and the 20 pounds I lost over the course of 3-4 months from cycling and rowing proves that.
Three things about me:
1) I’m kind of an oversharer. (Yesterday, Karlo and I were talking about inappropriate places we’ve peed in. When nature calls…)
2) I always need a second opinion. (Where should I have lunch? Should I get ice cream? These are decisions I can’t make on my own.)
3) I love emojis and stickers. I can’t even remember what life was like before when chats were purely text!
We live in constant stress that exhausts our mental and physical health, clouds our happiness, and dulls our will power. Stress can become a habit itself. Nonetheless, we need to develop healthy habits in order to fight stress, depression, and procrastination. Through this, we can increase productivity and find success in life.
I have a bad habit of saying no to opportunities.
It took me two years to leave a job where I was underpaid, uninspired, and unhappy because I didn’t think I could make it anywhere else. When I did finally leave and started working as a freelancer, I would constantly turn down jobs (both writing and web design) because I didn’t think I was capable. Instead of taking on challenges, I resigned to defeat without even trying.
