try new things or reinvigorate hobbies from the past.
As the New Year is upon us it has me thinking what new things I want to try or some old hobbies/sports I want to start up again.
Well over the past week, I tried something new – pickle ball and played an old high school sport – tennis.
I had a blast at playing both and it made me realize that it is never too late to start a new hobby or start up an old sport in the new year.
Life can move fast and it’s important to continue to ‘stay young’ by doing things that will challenge us both mentally and physically.
When you are stagnant, you don’t grow.
What new activities are you going to try for this upcoming year?
Think of one activity for your body and one for your brain. (example – chess (mind) and tennis (body))
If you don’t plan for it by the time you know it the year will go by in a flash!
When a client tells me they hate working out I ask them to try something different.
If you hate the gym go somewhere else! Like the tennis courts!
After playing tennis, it makes me realize how much I enjoy it and how much of a great workout it is as well!!
Don’t make excuses and find something that will motivate you to stay active both mentally and physically. There is plenty out there…
- Rock Climbing (indoors or outdoors)
- Pickle ball
- Horseback riding
- Read a book per month
- Learn a new language
- Spin Classes
- Intermittent Fasting
Hope this list got your mind working on something new to try both mentally and physically for 2018.
I am going for tennis, rock climbing, playing more chess/piano and volunteering more.
Email me what new activities you are going to do in 2018
Have a Happy Healthy New Year!!
