Welcome to Week 5
This week we return to a similar format as Week 2 - but with enhanced moves.
Pay special attention to your endurance and strength improvements, and give yourself some kudos!
Thank you for completing the Week 4 Reflections.
I look forward to sharing your insights anonymously with our group.
Look for an email from me on Tuesday with this info.
This week's theme is stress management.
More good news! You've already practiced 4 weeks of stress management strategies.
Properly nourishing your body, exercising regularly, getting adequate sleep, controlled breathing, and intentional self-care are all key components in managing your stress levels.
This week, get to know your stress by taking 5-10 minutes to respond to these questions in your journal.
1. Where is this stress coming from? Get to the root.
2. What can I do about the root cause right now?
3. What is this stress trying to tell, or teach, me?
4. Where is this stress manifesting in my body?
5. How can I manage these stress
symptoms right now?
