Here’s a great video sent to me by Sarah P called Stop Stopping and Start Starting!

This is an interview on Fox 17 with Dr. Eddie O’Connor, who is a sports psychologist here in Grand Rapids. They discuss the idea of focusing on what TO do rather than what NOT to do.

We’ve talked about this before with nutrition - focus on adding veggies to each meal rather than focusing on what you can’t eat. But this applies to everything in the gym and out.

In a workout you can focus on holding a particular pace or getting one more rep, or you can focus on the negative, like thinking about how much it hurts or when you can take your next break. If you can stay positive mentally, the physical will follow.

Don’t think about what could go wrong, but focus on what positives could happen from starting something new. Try to apply this positive approach to everything in your life and see if your days get a little more enjoyable!
