My involvement in the #BOSUStrong Campaign is still going strong!
Last week, we focused on balance. Of course, using the BOSU is a fabulous way to get balanced and work on all those teeny-tiny little stabilizer muscles that we tend to neglect (especially endurance athletes) but balance is about more than just the physical act of holding yourself upright and not tipping over.
Balance is something we all should strive for in every aspect of our lives. For every hard workout, there should be a good amount of rest, recovery, and sleep. For every area we’re actively trying to improve, there should be an acknowledgement of something we’ve already accomplished.
Maintaining balance in our mindset, fitness, and nutrition is the kindest thing we can do for ourselves. Extremes are unsustainable and unsustainable equals a waste of your time and effort in the long run. Find balance, your body & mind will thank you and I think you’ll find that it’s a lot easier to stick with.
