Picture Courtesy of Strong BoardI learned a number of valuable lessons fitness-wise this year. I realized I was eating far too few carbs and that relying primarily on protein does not work well with my metabolism. I learned I lift better after a large meal instead of my typical veggie/berry/protein powder smoothie. I learned the joy of whole body vibration to recover from strength training and as a quick energy recharger. And I more actively incorporated meditation with balance challenges into my routine. Mediation for the mind while micro-training my core. I started using a firm balance board for seated meditation and the difference is phenomenal. I sit, put the headphones on with a 30 minute meditation and bliss out ... whish I confess was an often much-needed diversion from the rollercoaster that was 2016.
Best wishes to you for health and happiness in 2017.
