PLAN YOUR WORKOUT: There is enough time.

Updated: Mar 24, 2022

What if I told you that we all are the creators of our own time? That our greatest resource, time, is completely under our own control?


The standard way of looking at time is based in part on Sir Isaac Newton's classical explanation of time: "that time passes uniformly without regard to whether anything happens in the world". Makes total sense. I have always believed in the value of time as a resource that should be embraced as finite. However, my view has been slightly altered, thanks to reading the book The Big Leap by Dr. Gay Hendricks.


Listen to all the episodes on Spotify or Apple Podcasts

Hendricks uses the expression "Einstein Time" to teach us that we all are masters of our own dynamic time source, that the Newtonian method and the #Einstein method are vastly different viewpoints.


Time really is a perceptual resource; we own our time, it does not own us!


To expand the amount of time we have in our daily lives we have to be creative in our processing of thoughts. Because it is through changing the perception that time becomes an asset, not a liability.


Not something finite but really infinite. See, it is a perception thing!


If we acknowledge that we own our time, that YOU own it, and that time does not own you then we become the masters of our lives. When we admit to ourselves that time does not control our life, we lose the 'victim' mentality.


By owning our own time we relieve pressure and #stress. By becoming more focused on what we truly want to accomplish, we eliminate boredom. Time becomes our asset, not a liability. Use these tips to improve your personal time bank:

  • Do not complain, out loud or in your mind, about a lack of time.

  • Abstain from perpetuating time as a stressor.

  • Acknowledge how often we complain about "not having enough".

  • Embrace feeling hurried as a positive influence on #creativity.

  • Breathe deeply.

EASY TO DIGEST PRE-WORKOUT FOODS


Eating before exercise is a good idea but eating too much leaves undigested food in your tummy which leads to unpleasant side effects like a tummy ache, nausea, or cramping. All you really need is 200-300 hundred calories before you hit the spin class. Try one of these options 30-45 minutes before class.

  • Whole wheat toast with nut butter and 1/2 a banana

  • A cup of Greek #yogurt with trail mix

  • A bowl of oatmeal and 2 eggs

  • Whole wheat toast with mashed #avocado on top

  • Half-cup cottage cheese topped with fruit
