In my professional career, I have witnessed this concept in action repeatedly. People decide to make a change. They engage in a strength training or running program, and you immediately start to notice a few things:
They are more confident.
They demonstrate self-efficacy (belief in a specific skill).
They align other habits in their life.
The energy that you get from beginning a change is a powerful one. I came across a concept a few years back about creating "microbursts" throughout your day. By creating a microburst, you are redistributing the energy requirement of a task by priming it (go for a walk, take breaks) and reframing it (simplify) in your mind.
Recently I came across another article advocating the same thing. Being active = better wellness. It's always awesome to see articles like this come around to validate or challenge things we observe clinically.
If you've taken the time to read this, reflect where you are in your wellness journey. Kinplus is here to help you create new microbursts. I am happy to discuss a plan that can help you.
