From the Task Pile, to the Habit Pile

“You’re adjusting to a new normal.”

Remember when this was uttered every other sentence during the months of March and April 2020? Has anyone said this to you recently? Or have you said it to yourself?

Sure, you can focus on trying to define new normal, you can dwell on when things will go back to normal… but it’s been 106 days since we voluntarily closed the gym before the order, and nothing seems “back to normal”, except we can workout in the ‘same area’ as our friends again.

So wow did we get to this point? Or what should we do to prepare if this sort of thing happens again this winter? We focused on building healthier habits!

With habit coaching, we empower our clients to work towards better sleep, better self-care, and better choices, little by little. By pairing daily habits with training and nutrition plans, we impact your daily life in a big way. Here’s how habits will help your clients work through the “new normal”.

WINS: Biggest Impact will be Focusing on quick WINS

The big picture worries can easily overwhelm us all during uncertain times. Building routine into our days will help! We focus on what you can control rather than what you can’t. For example, waking up at the same time every day and eating meals on a regular schedule can have positive effects! Tackling small tasks will feel like a win, which builds in instant reward—a key benefit of habits.

ENERGY: Automaticity saves energy for more important tasks

As you build healthy habits, you’ll notice certain freedom that comes along with it. Automaticity is what lets us multitask more effectively, get more done, and best allocate our mental energy throughout the day. When a healthy and beneficial action moves from the “task” pile to the “habit” pile, you’ll be able to re-allocate that energy elsewhere—maybe to play with the kids, or pick up a neglected hobby?

ROUTINE builds a sense of normalcy

Whether it’s homeschooling, a loss of income, familial concerns, or just general restlessness, anyone continuing to practice physical distancing right now is stressed—if not more than normal, then in a new way. And don’t forget those working on the front lines who have increased work stress! Everyone is craving normalcy. If they can’t get it in their day-to-day lives, we can help create it! By setting habit goals, we are not just adding to your to-do list— we are helping build healthy routines that will provide you with small specks of normal.

SELF-CARE: Coaching offers care and encourages self-care

According to a New York-based clinical psychologist, the trauma of COVID-19 is likely causing us to regress to a more childlike state of mind. We need to feel cared for—and guess what? CrossFit Torque Coaching has, and can serve as that care. Working on these habits requires guidance and attention, which you’ll receive from our Coaches. Isn’t that what we all want? We help you focus on yourself.

Building healthy habits builds small wins – small wins will tip a bad day over into a good day!

Habits and routines bring comfort.

Rather than focus on what we can’t control, we focus on what we can control—a healthy habits focus will have both big and small impacts on our days.

If we have a few healthier habits built-in, the benefits will be long-lasting.

Schedule a time to talk to us. We want to hear how you are doing. We want to help build better habits as we hit the second half of 2020.
