I sometimes feel like during covid times I somehow got infected by another virus - virus of transformation. I used to watch news for the first few months of the pandemic. I was scared and in panic, just like everyone. Although it didn’t last long as I realized how much those thoughts affect my life in a negative way.
So I decided to focus on things that I can change or have an influence on. My first focus was my body. I decided I need some improvements and I started exercising a lot, which brought me to another thought: since I’m exercising I also need to watch my nutrition more to get better results in a shorter period of time. I ended up exercising a lot and trying low carb nutrition lifestyle. I was getting stronger and I felt like I need more so I signed up for kickboxing classes, which I never thought would bring me so much pleasure. Although I improved my outer image, I still felt not satisfied, so I started some intensive inner work. I listened to audiobooks in personal development and applied at least one idea from each. I built lots of good habits that automated my growth.
My kickboxing studio got closed by the lockdown and I ended up as a long distance runner. Since I already got used to workout a lot and had some spare energy, I needed to place it into a new challenge, which was running marathons. Besides, running long distances goes perfectly with listening to audiobooks.
I can’t believe now that it was me one year ago sitting on the couch with low energy and lots of fears, as I now feel so great inside and out. I am grateful for this time and it’s just up to us to choose to be positive or negative about the experiences we get. Stay positive as it’s also good for your immune system;)
