After my dad passed away about a year and a half ago, I started attending Friday night services at my synagogue on a regular basis. Initially, this was so I could say the Mourner’s Kaddish (prayer for the dead) for my Dad. But, as time went on, I realized that I enjoyed and appreciated the ritual of ending the work week in this way. The service lasts just under an hour, there’s lots of joyful singing, and, it’s a chance to see friends I don’t see on a regular basis. I always leave my phone in the car, and surprisingly, even that one short hour gives me a chance to unplug from the rest of the world and focus on what’s important and right in front of me.

Many people have the idea “I think I can do it on my own.” I like the confidence behind it but what about the tough times. Are you going to continue to push for you goal as the weather changes? What if you get a minor injury will you continue to exercise around the injury? With that, do you have the knowledge rehab the injured area? What I am trying to bring to your attention is information is out there so learn more.
Professionals learn from other professionals all the time. Personal trainers and group fitness instructors are no different. In addition, people become motivated by the people they are surrounding themselves with. Having a supportive social group behind you helps keep motivation up. Furthermore, it provides an outlet to talk about issues or success to inspire or learn from someone else. Knowledge is power. The more you learn about the body and how it functions, the better you will be at training your body. My message to you is seek advice and learn to get better. There is always something else to work on.
