Oh hey TORQUE tribe, how are you on this beautiful Wednesday?! It’s a Wednesday and unfortunately, our beautiful ladies are busy with all the holiday “to do” lists so, no Women Crush this week. I mean I could crush on all of you all the time but until the craziness settles down I am going to stick to all things uplifting, fun, and carefree! Because that is what we all need right about now. I know that the stress we are all putting on ourselves right now is immense. And although we say we are not going to do it to ourselves, every year it is the same thing. It happens. Life happens. We are human and it is OKAY! But right now, I want you to do one thing. I want you to pick a time (even just 15 minutes) in the next few days where you will slow down the pace. Whether this is a class at the studio (fill up those bingo cards), a nail appointment, a coffee date, a bubble bath, a glass of wine, whatever it is, pick something a do it. Okay, I lied, I’m asking you to do two things (sorry not sorry). Once you pick something to do and you find the time to do it, turn your phone OFF (or do not disturb for those of us with little ones and scary mean bosses LOL) and just be. Let go of the stress. Let go of the list. Let go of the hustle and bustle. And just…be. I promise you, you need it. And because you need it, you must do it. I, am just like all of you, and let life get ahead of me sometimes. My favorite soccer coach saw this weakness in me a long time ago. With every piece of advice he gave, he always ended it with “….and don’t forget to breathe.” It sounds silly, but when life get stressful and we get panicky, we forget to do the things we need the most. Even the simplest, most necessary things like breathing. So TORQUE tribe set that intention now. Pick something and do it. There are still so many opportunities to sweat the stress away this week at the studio, but if time doesn't allow for it, we understand. Give your body and soul what it needs to get through these next few weeks. Take the time, I promise it will make a difference. ANNDDD if you decide to include music in this here is a fab playlist made by yours truly. XO!
As always, sending my love and hugs to you all wherever you may be in this world!
p.s. let's be more like Buddy the Elf!!!
