Shifting the 2020 Funk-Even Just a Little
I heard a fitness instructor say today that exercise isn’t a punishment. You don’t HAVE TO do this, you GET TO. Being able to move your body is a privilege.
Damn. What a way to reframe.
In this wonky year of 2020-with bad news daily-it can be hard to find the good.
But, science shows us that gratitude increases happiness & combats depression.
So, how do we marry the funk that we're in with what we know will help-at a time when feeling grateful may be a challenge?
What if we take a cue from that fitness instructor & just appreciate the things we take for granted?
Being able to move your body is a privilege. THAT is something to be grateful for.
Breathing clean air…
Turning on the faucet & getting clean water…
The sun coming up every day…
What else can you appreciate? Let me know, I’d love to hear.
Shifting the funk or depression even a little is a BIG deal.
Wouldn’t that be a better way to start 2021?!
