Things are looking better, but more than ever we all need to be resilient

Keeping calm in a world of change

Cast your mind back 12 months. We were still in the grip of an extended drought, bushfires were raging, and Sydney was baking.  We didnt know back then that things were actually going to get a lot worse…..Between the disastrous effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the wide-spread global outcry as a result of police brutality, and the continued destruction of the environment (to name just three), all of us have had to deal with some tough stuff. We are living in times of unprecedented change. We have to keep changing to survive. 

Change can feel like a threat or an opportunity. Its up to you. When you feel confident and resilient, change is a much easier journey.

6 tips on how to create your armourplated invincible YOU.

1. Work out what you can and can’t control. Your daily rituals, what you eat, who you spend time with.

 2. Practise self-control. Turn off your phone, dont eat if you’re not hungry, commit to goals you have set. Use small victories to build up to winning bigger battles. 

3. Focus on the positives. Express gratitude for the freedoms we currently enjoy. Spend time with positive people. Do things that make you laugh. Make a list of things that you like about yourself and add to it each day. Reward yourself for goals achieved. 

4. Change your thought patterns. When you have a bad day dont dwell on your negatives – even though it can feel “comfortable” to slump into a void of self-criticism. Share your problem with a trusted friend and you may get a new perspective. Seek help from a professional if anxiety is dominating your life. 

5. Live in the now. Dont dwell on the what ifs…. Master the art of distraction and busy yourself with things that you love doing. Connect with your tribe. 6. Move your body. Even when you dont feel like it. Force yourself to get up off the lounge and do something. Even 20-30 minutes of gentle exercise is a proven mood lifter. Look after your body so it looks after you.

Let’s get you started with some global positives (-: Australia and a handful of other countries are virtually covid free, and effective vaccines may only be months away. Nature has rallied – we are enjoying La Nina with drought breaking rains and full dams. The US has a new president who recognizes that global warming must be addressed, and major companies are setting goals to become carbon neutral despite our federal governments embarrassing inaction.  

Why we are thriving (not just surviving) at Miss Fit 

We are 100% fuelled by the power of positivity – its totally carbon neutral (-:In our small group classes, we make sure everyone feels included and receives the attention they need to achieve their goals.
