Mental WOD

WEDNESDAY

Failure is a good thing. It builds character, creates wisdom, and leads us to the right path only if we’re mentally strong enough to pursue it. You have to exercise your mind 10 times harder than you do your body. After all, it’s the brain that leads the charge.

Let’s try a mental WOD:

Set a timer for 3-5 minutes. Sit with your eyes closed and think about your day starting from the time you woke up to the very moment you closed your eyes. Identify 1-3 moments where you could have done or said something differently. This can be in your workout, personal relationships, anything. Sitting with your eyes closed and centering your mind is actually very hard so give it a try and see how it feels. Worse case scenario- you might laugh a little because you feel silly. Either way, the mind is a garden and you have to pick out the weeds :).
