Resolutions and Goals Require Endurance

Anytime I’ve ever heard the word endure or endurance I always have these mental images of a marathon runner slogging through mile 20 to make it to the finish line. Your goals or resolutions in 2020 may feel exactly like that and you’re only into mile 3 today on January 3rd, 2020. The struggle is real.

Our battle isn’t just physical though, it’s mostly mental. Learning why our mind instinctually plays us like a fiddle is a great step to getting over the finish line by the end of 2020.

One of the most simplest things we can help our mind grasp in 2020 is how to pace itself. Pacing ourselves isn’t something that the brain does, it’s something we create through being intentional. Higher development of your self-awareness is a huge help as well at training for what the right pace is.

Along with the correct pace, the right amount of rest plays a role too. With the right amount of rest for our brain our success rate jumps 15-20% higher. Coffee doesn’t help. That’s a myth. When you’re tired or feel any hint of exhaustion it’s time to take a break. Change of venue and a TV episode later will have you back in form. A micro nap for 15-20 minutes does incredible work too.

The practice of mindfulness can help. We know the mind plays a bigger role in our ability to endure, that it’s a muscle, and it’s got a plasticity to it. Mindfulness it generally described as giving focused attention to any given action. Learning for example how to deal with our stress levels better through self-awareness techniques can help us endure more.

Endurance is much more than just pure muscle power and beasting our way through. There are physiological elements in play and psychological ones. Understanding how to manage our brains more through these elements will give us a greater chance at controlling them to our advantage.

I wish you the best of luck with your new focuses in 2020. Thanks for reading!

✌🏻 Shawn
