Do you have perfectionist tendencies? Do they bleed into your workouts?
Going from exercise perfectionist to exercise for play and experimentation has been a huge shift. & has made movement more fun + less stress.
I try things I suck at & suck at them for a while.
Modify workouts when I need to, (yes as a coach I modify my own workouts too, I’m really good at that 😉).
I am excited about learning how to get better.
I don’t compare myself to people who are at a different point than me, less stress!
And never worried if I “get there” to the point of having it perfect.
No end goal means endless play!
Here are 3 mindset shifts that will be helpful for you:
Instead of: I can't modify the workout, that means I'm weak/suck/should be able to do this.
Try: Modifying allows me to continue to move well + safely
Instead of: The workout needs to be x minutes to count
Try: All movement counts and is health supporting
Instead of: If I can't do this perfectly, I won't even try.
Try: How can I get 1% better at this movement.
Let me know if any of these were helpful for you ;).
