Seph, Derek, Sarah A., and Coach Heidi recently competed in the CrossFit Games Team Competition. They represented the Masters athletes of True Spirit CrossFit & Yoga. They are all grateful the competition is over:-)
I had a hard time coming up with what to write about gratitude. You all know what it is, and it’s hard to write about it without sounding cliche. Instead of talking directly about gratitude, I would like to propose a few queries to get you thinking about what you are grateful for. The more you practice, the easier it becomes to identify things to be grateful for. Try to frame your gratitude positively. Say what you are grateful for, not that you are grateful for not having something. For example, “I am grateful that I have a totally functional, healthy body” is very different from “I am grateful I am not in a wheelchair.” Use the following queries as a jumping off point in your new gratitude habit.
Physical: What about your physical body are you grateful for? (The eyes to read this. The ability to walk. The ability to jump, squat, push, and pull. Health)
Emotional: What about your emotional life are you grateful for? (Happy days. Joy. Celebrations)
Relational: In your relationships to others, what are you grateful for? (Supportive significant other. Awesome older/younger brother/sister. Loving parents. Well-behaved children. Strong community support for your healthy lifestyle changes)
Environmental: What about your environment are you grateful for? (Roof over your head. Beautiful mountains at your doorstep. Safe community.)
Be creative and find as many things in your life to be thankful for as you can. You might surprise yourself at just how much you find. Best of luck.
Namaste, Coach Noah
