Top 3 Takeaways from the Off-site Training

The HMI x MRx offsite is in the books!

We are so grateful for the opportunity to connect, share, and grow together with you through these experiences, and we look forward to seeing and hearing about the changes you are making in your lives.

One of the hardest parts of a learning experience is actually incorporating those new tools into your life consistently and sustainably to really see the change.

So, we wanted to highlight the Top 3 Takeaways from the Off-site to build on the momentum and reinforce some key themes so they stay top-of-mind.

#1. Small is All

The foundations of health and wellbeing are not complicated. But they are hard to practice consistently. Keep Will’s phrase, “Small is All” in your mind if you get overwhelmed by the path ahead of you. Remember that you just have to start somewhere. Small changes really add up over time.

Maybe it’s an extra 5 minutes of the work day that you set aside for your breathing, maybe it’s an extra 10 minute walk to start your morning, or a tennis ball that you bring into work. The small positive difference you feel sets into motion the building of a habit. And our habits become our lives!

#2 The stories you tell yourself aren’t always fact.

Whether it’s an injury, or a personality trait, think about the narrative that you’ve build around it. Write it down:

  • “I will never be able to bike again with my back the way it is.”
  • “I’ll never be happy unless I can bike like I used to”

Then write down the facts:

  • “I can bike for 5 minutes.”
  • “I have hope that I will be able to go further.”
  • “I am giving my body the downtime, mobility work, sleep, and food it needs to heal.”
  • “I can experience happiness for 5 minutes on my bike.”

Reframing your stories can have a powerful effect on how you’re experiencing the world. This week, try to find one story you’re telling yourself, and write down the facts to help shift your perspective toward growth.

#3. Eliminate Stacking to target burnout and overwhelm at its root!

Feeling overwhelmed or burned out is often related to the emotional exhaustion that we are carrying from one activity to another without ever putting it down. When we stack our work or activities in a way that the demand is ALWAYS high, our bodies and minds are never allowed the chance to recover.

To allow for this recovery, when stress starts to pile up, try adding some breath work or a 3 minute meditation to your transitions. Take a moment to pause between activities (between gym and home, or between home and work) and re-orient to what’s next. Be mindful of the emotions that you may be bringing with you to the next activity and you may find that the sense of burnout lessens.
