To know thyself is to love thyself. In a season when we think about love and affection for others, it’s also important to remember that we can’t pour from an empty cup. Showing up for yourself and prioritizing self-care in your exercise practice is essential for well-being. But again, a lot of myths stand in our way. “I don’t have time.” “I don’t deserve it.” “Everyone and everything is more important than little old me.” Or we fall into the self-punishment trap. “It has to hurt to work”, “More is more when it comes to exercise and less is more when it comes to rest” or “How I look is who I am.”
In order to dispel these myths, we have to first acknowledge they are there, seek to understand why and to educate ourselves on how to overcome them. Knowledge is power and the more you pay attention and invest in self-care and self-discovery, the more fulfilled you will feel. Look back without dwelling on the past. Leap forward without obsessing about the outcome. Take a chance on yourself. There is no one with better odds. And in the unlikely event that you fall, your Alkalign community is there to pick you back up.
We look forward to seeing you and your loved ones for a month of fun, function, and connection.
