Work Your Body Where It Is Today

Written by: Kayte Corrigan

Some days we wake up on the wrong side of the bed, and other days we feel like we can climb mountains. There are a lot of factors that go into how our bodies perform on a day-to-day basis. How you slept, what you ate the night before, what time you exercised, how much water you consumed, etc. We can feel as though our center of gravity is off, dehydrated, or extremely fatigued. Even in the most regimented daily grind, there are variations between days. Emotions and external forces can leave you just not feeling it when its time to workout.

Having an “off” day? It’s fine, don’t beat yourself up about it and resolve work within that range for that day. Sign up for yoga to get a grand reset. Or take Pilates down a notch and concentrate on form. Not every day can achieve maximum intensity, but we can still show up and gain the benefits of the endorphin rush. Even if you can’t push it to your usual 110%, you are still just one workout away from a good mood.
