Greetings Amway Employees!
Before I dive in to this topic, I would like to welcome all of you to the first post in my Broad Scope, Narrow Vision Blog! I am excited to carry on from my previous blog on the former website. What better way to spend some time working from home- as many of us are for the foreseeable future- than to offer a brand new look and feel to the blog! Bear with me as I work to add images and other content as we go. As I've done before, I will include category tags to help ease navigation through the content as I build it up. I will cover many topics ("broad scope"), but each post will work to emphasize the importance of the small things ("narrow vision") as we explore the vast wilderness of fitness and wellness together!
That said, on behalf of all of the Fitness Facility staff, I would like to extend our best wishes to you and your families as we deal with this whirlwind situation taking place in our world right now. If you're like me, you're tired of watching the news covering the fallout caused by Covid19. Although some of it has been speculation and misinformation - only adding to the fear and anxiety - we have seemed to weed through a lot of it and arrive at a central message of how to contain this aggressive virus. Thus, here we are, possibly working from home, many with school age children, trying to juggle everything. It is my goal with this post to contribute to a positive outlook of how we can best use this time as stepping stone rather than a step back! Understand, I use the term quarantine both in the strict sense of the word, and also for any other accommodation of this situation!
Prep the mind. Direct your thinking to the positive:
Prepping for quarantine starts with the mind. All we see, hear, and process with our mind has an inextricable connection to our body's response system. A positive frame of mind is perhaps the best way to approach this . Below are some positive vibes for the broad scope of Covid-19; I'm sure many of you are aware of these already, but my goal here is to invite you to simply take a deep breath, and spur you into positive thinking with some fundamental truths:
See the next post on how to prep the body for work at home, or any other physical activity! Just how the mind impacts the body, the body will positively influence the mind, with proper posture and breathing! You'll be amazed at how your outlook changes just by sitting properly and employing proper muscle activation.
Welcome to the Broad Scope Narrw Focus Blog! I hope you find a lot of useful and applicable information as we explore the broad world of Wellness together. Check in often, as there will be new posts weekly! Enjoy
