A fast video observe from Lynn!
Motivation is a kind of issues I’ve at all times struggled with, identical to everybody else. Or most individuals, I ought to say. I’ve by no means been a kind of “magically motivated” varieties. I do get stuff completed and make issues occur although, nevertheless it hardly ever EVER comes merely from being motivated.
Most individuals don’t consider that about me. They are saying, “I want I had your motivation!” to me on a regular basis. It’s not about motivation, I inform them, it’s about wanting one thing – and wanting it unhealthy sufficient to do the issues to make it occur.
I shot you a fast video to share what works for me, proper at a second after I was pushing by means of a critical lack of motivation, and why I try this, plus the thought course of I exploit to remain targeted on my objectives – and creating the life I do know I need for myself.
It’s a brief video (7’ish minutes) with a private replace too, only a pleasant chat. 🙂
You possibly can watch this video on Fb and see the dialogue there, or you may also play it proper from my weblog with out having to be on or open Fb:
I’m feeling higher tonight, by the best way. I shot this video Tuesday afternoon. I’ve had a tough few weeks however lastly really feel extra secure after one other good relaxation in the present day. That swim and chilly water did me a world of fine!! Although I didn’t FEEL like doing it. 😉
I additionally did chilly remedy within the cascades above Burgess Falls yesterday, which actually helped – and felt AMAZING. 🌞💦❣️ That was such an effective way to rejoice the tip of summer season on our final sizzling sunny day for awhile right here in TN, and made me smile from the within out. 🙃
Doing all of the issues for restoration alone appears like a full time job – acupuncture appts, bodily remedy, lymphatic therapeutic massage, relaxation and pacing, physician appts, managing medical payments, ordering & taking dietary supplements, attempting new therapies: trial & error, getting compression clothes on and off. 🤣 In the event you’ve ever worn these you recognize what I’m saying! (lol) After which after all I nonetheless need to work, pay the electrical invoice, do the dishes – you recognize: all the actual life stuff to maintain issues going. 🤪
It’s a problem some days. Most days truly. However I’m doing the issues, and staying targeted on the best priorities, one factor at a time, in the future at a time.
That’s not about motivation. Like I stated within the video, it’s about desirous to be the happiest healthiest model of myself, day by day, regardless of the state of affairs or circumstances – and staying targeted on the outcomes, as an alternative of the alternatives & duties. 🎯
Some days my physique wants relaxation, and I completely respect that. I’ve needed to be taught all about “pacing” – the arduous method, ha! In the event you’ve recognized me for lengthy, you recognize I’m all about pushing my limits. 😉 Proper now although, I’m studying to RESPECT my limits.
Nonetheless although, on the times I can’t do a lot, I ask myself: what *can* I do? It may be so simple as sitting within the sunshine for 20 minutes on my porch, selecting wholesome meals that serve my physique effectively, doing this full physique lymphatic therapeutic massage in mattress, reaching out to a buddy, chair yoga, discovering somebody to help and encourage, and even having fun with a superb film and a pint of low carb ice cream. 😊
I watched Father Stu the opposite evening. That was a very good film! And tonight I’m re-watching The Bridges of Madison County.
Crucial factor for me, and for anybody I ought to suppose, is to ask myself: How can I make in the present day GREAT? How can I make it rely, even in some small method, that makes me go to sleep on the finish of the day glad with the alternatives I made – and pleased with the best way I lived my day.
p.s. In case you’re simply tuning in, I used to be identified with Lengthy Covid Dysautonomia after a light case in late 2020 that triggered my nervous system to malfunction. That was 22 months in the past. 👀
It’s been a critical problem, and A LOT to be taught and cope with. I’m hanging in there although, and have improved DRAMATICALLY during the last 6 months. I’m nonetheless looking forward to a full restoration, and staying targeted on no matter that takes. 💯❣️
p.p.s. It takes much more than simply “motivation” 😉
