I hope you’ve had an amazing week full of doing things that are important and energy giving for you!
We are still hanging out in Steamboat Springs for the next few days trying to hit one last snow storm before moving on to our next location.
Here’s what I’ve found fun, interesting, or noteworthy this week…
Video of the week –
A Day in Van Life – Winter in Steamboat Springs CO (YouTube)
This is my first attempt at walking you through a day of van lifing as we do it in Steamboat Springs.
Workout of the week –
As posted on the Get Better Project social media. I’m trying a new approach to see if we get more traction on getting people to see and do our weekly workouts. It even includes me playing with some more video editing, which is always fun.
Try the workout and give us a comment if you do!
What I’m reading –
Total Power by Vince Flynn (Amazon), which is a Mitch Rapp novel. The thing that has me listening to this book day and night is that it’s all about the US power grid, how it works, and what would happen if it was attacked.
This is all fiction of course, but it’s all very interesting, and has me picking it up everyday.
Thought I’m pondering –
Getting stuck in your routines that aren’t serving you.
Routines can be freaking awesome! Like a workout routine (if done right) can give you health and fitness for your whole life. A writing routine can bring you money every single month. A going to work routine can set the foundation for a great financial life.
But getting stuck into a routine that isn’t serving you can be toxic to your life.
I’m sure that we can all think of toxic routines (like smoking or drinking), but the routines that I’m thinking of are the ones that keep you from doing things that bring you joy. Like not traveling because your routine at home feels safer and easier than doing something foreign.
Or not starting a company that you’ve always wanted to start because you don’t know how, or are so used to what you are doing now that you feel stuck.
I used to be like this. I used to like things to stay the same because that was comfortable. But what I’ve learned is that comfort that we feel is all an illusion, and it’s getting in the way of truly living.
Try thinking of the routines that are keeping you from doing what you really think will bring you passion. Then outline the worst thing that could happen if you take the “chance” to get our of your routine and get to living!
Hopefully this opens your eyes!
That’s what I have for you this week. If you need anything at all, just reach out!
