Coach Jarno's blog #10 - Everything in Moderation and Balance, Including Moderation... and Balance

A lack of balance in your life could be a huge cause for failure. You reap what you sow and if all you're planting is leisure seeds, you will have nothing to enjoy but hangovers and blurry nights. When you can't keep a good balance between work and play, changes must be made. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a good time, but every once in a while, we need to evaluate whether the good time is getting in the way of a good life. This blog is not just about fitness and wellness, but can be applied to our lives as a whole. I often apply this subject with clients, especially when talking about a steady diet and exercise regime. The balance I often bring up is the 80/20 rule(80% hard work/20% enjoying life).

Prioritizing your life is key number one. What is more important to you? Will you remember what you did years from now? People need to act on more of a long line thought process. Whether that is working towards your goal or spending time with the finely selected people in your life, always pick the option that is creating positive interest down the road. In fitness and wellness, going to and completing your scheduled workouts while serving your body with proper nutrition will make you thank yourself years down the road.

The second step is being grounded. This partly applies to who you spend your time with. There will always be distractions in life that try to pull you away from your goals. It's not that these people or things mean to hurt you, they just dont share the same goals as you. This is why you have to be mindful of who and what you keep around you. That cookie jar at home will always be staring at you unless you get rid of it. It is very important to take toxins like the cookie jar away from your life. I don't believe in having narrow vision because we should all strive to be as open minded as possible.  However, when it comes to a goal that you are trying to achieve, you have to have flaps on your eyes like a race horse and concentrate on the task at hand, which is bettering your life. You have to say "sorry" and "bye" to the things that try to drag you away from you goal. Like that cookie jar!

The best way to keep a healthy life balance is to always be honest with yourself and others. Always measure your expectations accordingly, meaning don't get your hopes up too soon, and don't lose hope too soon, either. Be realistic about the goals you set. When you are unrealistic with your wants and needs, you will lose patience because things aren't happening fast enough, or you're not where you thought you'd be. This is the fastest way to crash and burn. Know that if you put in the work, results will come. Trust yourself and follow your designated path. The ship will start turning the direction you want.

This next one, planning ahead, is one that I have personally had the hardest time with, but I am getting better. It is key to set guidelines to achieve the goals that are way down the line. When you plan ahead, you set rules for yourself.  Once you get near a distracion, you are more firm about staying on course. As you plan your workout regime and your daily nutrition, write them down. Once they are on paper with your handwriting, it has a powerful effect on your brain. Cooking your meals for the week in advance makes you finish each portion and keeps you away from... well, lets just say that cookie jar.

Lastly and most importantly, most things in life are best served in moderation. Thats right. Too much of anything is hazardous to your life. The harder you work, the more you should treat yourself. I make it my mission to work hard for everything, so indulging once in a while doesn't give me much guilt, because I know that I've earned it. That is what life is all about. Work hard so you can reach goals and then reap the benefits of them. As long as you paid your dues, there is no shame in enjoying life!

Next time, I will discuss the positive effects of having an eating window versus constantly making your body break down food. See you at the studios!
