With everything happening in the world we need encouragement to stay positive.
My friend, Dallas Amsden, ran only one trail race. His main focus is Crossfit. He joins me for talk about trail running, and he also tells his story of walking through some dark days and nights.
The strategy he shares for dealing with these trying times is to take this as an opportunity to learn a new skill. Or build some new muscles.
Your mindset is a muscle.
We can choose to stretch and strengthen our mindset. It only takes the intention to use it.
One of the most valuable mindset skills is to learn stillness. Practicing meditation or yoga will give you benefits far beyond just a bit of relaxation. For Dallas, and for me, meditation has been essential to keep us moving forward in running and in life.
