Seeing the snow melt away this week, I am slightly sadden and excited at the same time.
Mixed emotions with seeing winter move out and spring flow in.
You may wonder why that is the case…
I'm sadden to know that my cross-country skiing season is done and I'll have to hang up my skis for another year. The sadness doesn't stick around for too long because I know snow and skiing will come again next year. I'm so new at the sport that it feels like I need more time this season.
My excitement is growing, though, as the snow vanishes because I am one step closer to getting out on the road with my bike.
As we move into this transition period of seasons, how is it impacting your physical activity? Are you making a mindset shift too?
If we all know one thing, change is constant. We all experience it.
Just like taxes.
How timely, am I right?!
I'm no expert on taxes nor am I an expert on mindset. Yet I know your mindset (aka your attitude and how it shapes your thoughts) can dictate how you feel about a situation.
The very interesting work of Carol Dweck dives into the fixed mindset and the growth mindset in her book aptly titled, Mindset.
When I think about snow I start to realize my mindset. I acknowledge the bummer of it going away and can switch gears to think of what good is coming from it vanishing. My own little example of a growth mindset.
Curious about mindset?
I sure am.
That is why this coming week I'm attending Effloresce Coaching's workshop on mindset. Nicole McLeod, is my executive coach who does amazing work asking the right questions and helping expand my mindset. Her workshop is called The Great Mindset Shift: Sticking Things Out vs. Quitting or Stepping Back and I encourage you to consider joining us on the call. She is definitely not asking me to promote this and I do it simply because the work she does has been transformational for me. I want you to have that opportunity too!
Have fun thinking about your current physical activity mindset this week and maybe see you at the workshop this week too!
Stay well and happy moving,
