Working out and rest days.
A little reflection as we head into the weekend:
Sometimes you need to let yourself zen the heck out & pay attention to what your body and mind are asking of you. If they need to rest, then REST and don’t feel guilty one bit. It’s essential for your mind and body to sit idle just as much as they need to move and be active.
My husband and I took a nice little vacation to Cabo a fews weeks ago and prior to that I was hurting, I was tired, and quite frankly was not feeling the gym at all! On the plane ride down I made a conscious effort to redirect my energy towards my meditation practice instead of forcing myself to “physically” workout. That time off was exactly what the doctor ordered and guess what? When I decided to get back in the gym, my workouts were much more effective and my mind was centered…well, as much as it can be.
Moral of the story…listen to your body. It knows better than you.✌️🙏
If you’re new to meditation I suggest checking out the Headspace app. https://www.headspace.com Personally I have a really hard time with silence and find that a guided mediation helps me tremendously. I hope you find this app as helpful as I have!
P.S. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my swimsuit on social media. It’s from https://www.lspace.comFollow Nicole Darabi on Instagram.
