Man this past week had been rough.
Overwhelm hit me like a bus – motherfucker came from nowhere too, or at least that’s how it felt.
I’m annoyed at myself as all the warning signs were there but I ignored them –
- Withdrawing into myself
- Abandoning my basics (daily meditation, movement & water)
- Being “busy” but not productive
- Not being present (especially with my Mrs)
The upside is that I caught myself before I went too down that rabbit hole (something I’ve done far too many times in my life)
I’ve learned coping mechanisms, tools and techniques to keep me in a good headspace.
I wouldn’t say I suffer with mental health issues or that I’m prone to them but I’m certainly proactive with it, because a good headspace impacts EVERY area of your life.
You see, that’s what I want this new group to be… a place where you get access to the tools and resources you need for long term back health.
I don’t just tell you do to… I teach you.
Teach a man to fish type thing.
If I’m honest, the group is up and ready to go, I even recorded more master classes over the weekend on Kyphosis (the rounded shoulder posture) and since I got such amazing feedback and interest on the posture analysis I did for Matt within the group I am looking into making that a separate (or maybe a joint offering) as well.
Ok, now that I say that, I am going to open it up tomorrow and give the first week FREE (by saying that now, I am forcing myself to do it)
Right, I’m off to get everything set up and do a few dummy runs so that it all works!
Have a good day brother!
