Sadness and Joy are connected. If you limit one, you limit the other. Are you shutting down your joy just to stave off the experience of sadness and disappointment? Stop doing that today.
If you have completed an event this summer which had you focused and motivated but seem to have lost your umph. Take a load off. It may be time to honor the fact that you reached a goal.
In our society we have a tendency to blow off our accomplishments and move right to the next thing. Take a moment to feel pride in a job well done – no negative comments allowed here. Just bask in the glory of finishing a project.
This moment can be 5 minutes or 5 days. That’s the beauty of moments they are defined by you. Chances are you’ll know how long is long enough and move back into workouts shortly. If you find yourself still not motivated it may be time to look for another event, find a workout buddy, or hire a trainer to get you back on track.
Now is the time to look at your time, distance, overall performance of the event and decide where you were weak and where you were strong. Not for judgment but as goals for next year. This activity can also be just what is needed to fire up your motivation again.
