You’ve seen this, right?
Fitfluential shares their purpose behind in one paragraph…
We’ve learned that visual inspiration goes a long way toward achieving concrete goals, and that it helps to DREAM BIG. To that end, many of our Ambassadors have started creating #FitnessBucketList boards on Pinterest and they are awesomely fun to scroll through!
Yep, a pinterest board filled of fitness DREAMS, GOALS, AMBITIONS, and more! Holy Moly how cool is that?
As I started scrolling through them, I found myself pondering my own BUCKET LIST and started to repin several onto my own.
And then it hit me.
As much as I want to do all these things, there is only one that I want NOW!
To RECLAIM Balance, Wellness, and Vitality. To me, that’s Fitness for the BODY and SOUL.
But How? When? Where?
I think it all starts with slowing down the process. Focusing on what your body is learning, and going with it.
The hubs and I have both been going through some endurance junkie withdrawals. You know, the kind where you want to train like a mad man and sweat like a pig?! ha.
Yet, we are not. Nope, we FILLING our fitbucket with balance..wellness… vitality… and well, just soaking it in. Or at least trying to.
strength and agility
I’d say those are key components of a good fitbucket, one that makes it stronger, and able to endure.
Inversions such as Pincha Mayurasana (Feathered Peacock Pose) present wonderful opportunities for profound physical and mental transformation, but they’re also rife with obstacles. Begin by simply noticing the obstacles that keep you from going upside down easily. When you acknowledge these blocks, you have something to work with, and a pathway to new possibilities reveals itself. You can nudge things along by cultivating meditative awareness and breaking inversions down into smaller, easier steps. This makes the goal of “perfection” less important; instead, you can work creatively and enjoy the journey, no matter how long it takes. source.
