First Steps – take the easy way

That’s it. First run done in preparation for the Round Sheffield Run in June.

It’s been over two weeks since I decided to sign up; and I haven’t been for a run yet.

Why…? I was away for a few days, I didn’t want to take my running stuff with me because I was travelling on my bike and it’s too much luggage to carry…. and a million other excuses that I could think of, but that’s okay.

Because I clearly wasn’t feeling ready. And it’s a fine line, isn’t it – between listening to that inner critic that tells you that you have to get on with it. Do it right now. You’re such a failure. If you don’t do it you’re weak. You’ve given up too easily.

The alternative being that if you always go easy on yourself you’ll never get anything done, you’ll always be making excuses and never, ever achieve anything at all.

But I did it, when I was ready. I allowed myself the days off, came back replenished and got on top of planning for the month, then went for a run. I’ve started easy as it’s been a while – I’ve gone back to the Couch to 5K app. It is such a great way to ease yourself into running if you’re not confident, or it’s been a while.

One thing I know about myself is that I am pretty resilient, I can do the difficult stuff – but I’ve learnt over the years that I don’t have to always do it the difficult way. It doesn’t need to be difficult to be meaningful. Sometimes it is okay, perfect even, to start easy and let other people help and support you.

Okay, Sarah Millican might not actually be supporting me in person, but letting her voice guide me is a great way to get started. It’s the easy way, and it is more likely to keep me focussed towards my goal and enjoying the journey along the way.

What first steps can you take along the easy way?

Book your discovery call to see how I can help you.

Life likes to throw things at us in different ways and the saying is when life gives you lemons make lemonade, but a lot of the time this just doesn’t help and doesn’t slow anything down.

What are you waiting for?

Everything and nothing can stand in your way between your life now and a life in the future filled with positivity and empowerment.

Sometimes change can be scary and instil anxiety into our lives. But I am here to help you make informed decisions and make changes to live a balanced life.

Self- care for you?

Self-care is so important in everyday life. We like to think that we will be okay and we can handle everything one step at a time.

But it’s not always so easy is it to balance everything.

We need to slow down to ensure we can enjoy life whilst doing what we love to do. Maybe it’s being with your family or maybe you have hobbies you would love to pursue or just making sure you have some extra time to wind down after a busy day.

I provide a range of services to work with you as an individual; or to work with your child or the whole family together.
