"Repetition of the same thought or physical action develops into a habit which, repeated frequently enough, becomes an automatic reflex."
Past the three year mark of dealing with post #concussion
syndrome. I honestly can't believe that this is STILL something I struggle with daily! It has to be something I factor in for every single decision I make. It blows my mind that I'm still as sick as I am, however it is definitely getting better.
In this video I'm doing some skater hops, something that is second nature to me from all my years of hockey. Before this exercise would have knocked me flat out and created a plethora of symptoms for days. Now however it is something I use to judge how my brain is feeling that day and if I should or shouldn't workout. Which is absolutely a huge win!!🏆🏆 It's these small success that I need to continue to focus on! Which is why I'm sharing this video.
One of my biggest struggles in my concussion #journey
is my extreme intolerance to #exercise
. Some days it's okay, other days it's just a flat out no and most days I end up just going for a walk because I know it won't make me sick.
Not being able to exercise has not only taken its toll on my #physical #health
but it also really effected my #mentalhealth
I refuse to give up! I will keep trying and keep pushing (gently) until my brain starts to trust exercise again. I refuse to accept that this is as good as it will get. I refuse to settle for my limited lifestyle. I will continue to try and make exercise a habit again because I know my brain and body deserve it.
I am a fighter and this battle isn't over yet.💪 #tbi #recovery #lifestyle #coach #hockey #yyccoach #igniteyourpotential #yycpersonaltrainer #workout #success #gains #babysteps #fighter #trainer #habits #change #growth #growthmindset #grateful
