Finding Your New Normal In 3 Easy Steps

Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to find a new normal with all the chaos in the world around us? When I decided to close B3 Gym, I thought it might be for just a few weeks, but, unfortunately, it looks like it will be longer than that.

The biggest thing my members are asking for is how to create a new normal. For every person, it’s different, but we all have the same goal of wanting some normalcy in the midst of chaos around us.

Here are 3 Steps To Finding Your New Normal:

1. You Need A Plan

You are probably saving time not having to drive to work. Whether you are working or not, you need to create a schedule for yourself. You need to schedule your meals, workouts, time for work, and self-care.

It’s essential to create a schedule and map out what you want to accomplish for the day. Otherwise, you will find yourself mindlessly wasting the day away.

One thing that has helped me is planning my workouts. I’m getting in more workouts joining the zoom classes because there is no drive time, and it’s just a click away! I have an online calendar set to remind me to stop and log on for one of the classes. Online Zoom classes with our community are the highlight of my day.

Our members are also saying that the classes are their bright spot of the day.

If you find yourself forgetting to eat or you’re venturing into the kitchen too often, try scheduling out your meals and snacks. Even though you are working from home, you should create a plan to prep and portion your meals to help you stay on track with your nutrition.

Now is the time to do a closet cleanout and make sure you set yourself up for success with healthy options readily available.

2. Find An Accountability Partner

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

Is your roommate or significant other a positive or negative influence on helping you stay healthy? If you lack someone who is a positive influence around you, it’s time to reach out to a friend (or few) virtually. Now, more than ever, you need a connection with a community of people who will help you stay healthy!

If you surround yourself with people who are a positive influence, it will be easier for you to have the support you need to stay healthy!

Our members have enough equipment to get in a good workout at home. Joining the group classes gives you the accountability to stay on track with your fitness routine. If you know you have people waiting to see you, you’ll look forward to the workout and social time with friends.

3. Take Action & Track Your Progress

Taking action is the most critical piece of the puzzle. If you don’t take action, you will never achieve the results.

You do not need to change everything at once. We recommend the opposite. Think about ONE thing that you will commit to and keep yourself accountable to that by tracking your process. 

If you goal is to exercise 15 times over the course of the month, grab a post-it note and write the numbers 1-15 on it. As you exercise each day, write down the date and track the number of active days per week.

If you want more accountability and support, we can help!

At B3 Gym, our coaches provide support and accountability. We offer daily virtual zoom classes. Members love the individual support from their coach and the community engagement with the virtual classes.

Bring a sense of normalcy to your out-of-the-ordinary day. Stay on track with your fitness and nutrition goals.

Finding a new normal when there is chaos around you isn’t easy. First, you need to start with a plan. From there, you need to surround yourself {virtually} with a community that is a positive influence around you. Lastly, you need to take action. 

Don’t try to change everything — just focus on one habit at a time. Focus on what you can control and turn this obstacle into an opportunity to invest in yourself and stay healthy!

Stay safe!
