I’ve been injured numerous occassions with various grades of severity and as time goes on, I’m discovering more and more what are the useful mindsets to employ whilst recovering and what thoughts and practices should be discarded.
All too often, people let injuries snowball into excuses for stopping. Stopping their training, stopping their goal-hunting, stopping their positive attitudes etc. And I’ve realised that thinking this way is not useful because it’s the “I’m a victim of circumstance” attitude instead of “I am going to seize this opportunity!”.
It might not be obvious but if you’re injured and it’s not life threatening, you actually have a set of real opportunities you must capitalise on.
I’d like to share with you some of the useful mindsets and principles I have discovered. Perhaps they will assist you in overcoming whatever injuries you currently have.
The daily inversion continues… – – With a wall for assistance, apparently one arm is all you need. – – Playing around with breaking contact with the wall in both regular and straddle positions. Harder than it looks to balance unassisted! – – #inversion #headstand #balance #yoga #calisthenics #asana #inverted #upsidedown #straddle #wallassisted #onearm #shoulder #injury #mobility
