🙏😊Wednesday wisdom....🏋️
Should you always be sore after a workout or is it the sign of a great workout / trainer??
..
😉Currently floating around the fitness scene is the popular myth that you continously have to sore and achy after every workout or class you attend or finish..
..
💪Muscle damage is caused by small micro tears in the muscle after you contact them during any exercise.
..
🕺But it's not always  good sign if your constant walking around like John Wayne after a leg session.. Of course when you complete something new like a  heavier load or change in the tempo of the session you will feel it the next day or 2....
..
😉if you are judging how good the workout or the training session was by the indication of soreness  it's not always  good sign.
.
😥you be under recovering nd not eating enough calories and protein to sufficiently repair the damaged muscles fibres..
..
🤝 the more you train the more you body becomes conditioned to the training. It can be actually harder to feel the soreness..
..
💪To conclude it great to have that muscle burn but don't worry it goes away... It could indicate that you are progressing nicely and your body is able to sustain a higer volume of training.
..
So keep it up. Soreness or no soreness.. You won't get either from siting on the couch watching Netflix..

Tuesday is not just a day to recognise physical transformation but to recognise mental transformation! For years I lived under the misapprehension that if I wanted to lose weight I had to go on a crazy crash diet and deprive my body of certain food groups! I have tried every crash diet in the book! No more, don't eat less eat better - eat clever!! #fit #fitter #fitness #transformation #transformationtuesday #tuesday #health #healthy #mindset #wellbeing #wellness #misconceptions #misinformation #crashdiet #eatless #feelingfat #fitspo #motivation #inspiration #quoe #quotes #nutrition #weights #instagood #instadaily #anxiety #essentialtremor #mentalhealth

If you have OCD, you know exactly what I mean when I say that OCD feels SO real. Whether it be thoughts, images, or urges, they seem to come at us with such force that it’s hard to see anything else. The trick here is to NOT fight the thoughts. Instead, allow them to be there. Practice acceptance. Welcome them along. Treat them as if they were a pesky, annoying sibling following you around all day. This does not mean that you won’t be scared - you will. Because OCD is scary. But fear is not something we need to run away from; it’s not dangerous, it’s just uncomfortable. So, allow those thoughts to be there today. Acknowledge their existence and practice doing nothing about it. You can do hard things. You all are so strong and so brave and so resilient. Keep fighting, because there is so much hope. 💗

We should always try to be happy and always think positive?
NO, I don't think so!!
.....A few days ago I found on facebook a very interesting article about the negative  consequences and side-effects of the "omnipresent positive-thinking-attitude" and "always positive thinking-culture). The text included so much what's on my heart for months. 
And after reading (friends) IG-comments additionally about the hardship of dealing with depressions, Posttraumatic Stress Disorders, Anxieties and much more I want to highly recommend the following article in:

@PsychologyToday
Being Positive: Another Form of Avoidance?

When staying positive as a way to deal with difficulties turns into avoidance.

"This weekend I spoke at the MITCA #crosscountry coaches clinic to share my #eatingdisorder story, my #recovery process, what may cause eating disorders in #running, & of course, how #coaches can address this topic each year with their #athletes.
.
This wasn’t a presentation for just the coaches who currently battle this issue with a #runner–it was for every #coach because each year there is a chance that an #athlete could come through their program #running in silence. There may have been seasons that have gone by without a coach even knowing a student athlete has suffered. No one–not even the best of coaches–are immune to getting an athlete who struggles with this, and the secretive nature of eating disorders make it a tough situation to find to begin with.
.
What makes this even trickier are the number of #misconceptions about eating disorders, which prevents coaches from even thinking that this needs to be something for them to learn about. I could immediately tell the coaches who hadn’t attended the talk (days later, these coaches were looking at my book at the vendor table with curiosity). They usually made a comment about how they “didn’t have eating disorders on their team” (like one who just coached boys and thought it didn’t affect men, or because none of their runners were “stick-thin”).
.
It makes me frustrated, but mostly sad–not with the coaches per say, but that the requirements for coaching do not include an awareness for the prevalence and misconceptions of eating disorders. Coaches simply aren’t exposed to this information or required to understand the complexity and importance, to know this is something all coaches should be discussing whether they think their athletes are dealing with it or not.”

Confused what’s a good wok? In my cooking class, I explain the importance of having the RIGHT wok! There were so many misconceptions about woks, the right stove to use, the technique to using a wok and the right ingredients and that’s how I ended up putting together a Wok Star Kit. It has all 4 elements to  help you succeed. It always thrilling for me when folks realize where they had gone wrong. Even Asians get it wrong. But when they see my lightweight, thin walled, ROUND bottom cast iron wok and gas stove in action, taste the food and how good the food looks, it’s an #ahamoment #castironcooking #wokcooking #notallwoksareequal  #wok #thebest

5 misconceptions about fitness bloggers 🏋🏼‍♀️ I feel that because I write about fitness, health and wellbeing some people may assume I have my shit together and that I am in peak physical and mental condition. However it is so not true! We should place expectations on someone just because they have a passion. Have you ever experienced misconceptions for what you blog/Instagram? 👉🏻 link in bio 👈🏻

India is world's second most populous country yet it is awfully behind in organ donation. Countries as small as Croatia have a high organ donation ratio of 36.5 per million. A little more awareness for such a pure cause can save many lives.

Permission Slip for the day!  Letting myself off the hook.  #permission #self-care 
When I first saw Kimberley post this, my mind was blown. It’s so simple, yet so powerful. We are allowed to feel anxious and do absolutely nothing to solve it. Although anxiety is a yucky feeling, it’s important to remember that it’s not the “bad guy”. Rather, it’s your brain trying to keep you safe. Anxiety is not something we need to push away. Try simply acknowledging your anxiety and accepting it’s presence. Insert your name in this sticky note and “let yourself off the hook” today 💞 •

Myth 2: Psychologists can hypnotize their patients and make them do things against their will.

There are two parts to this misconception, the first being that psychologists can ‘hypnotize’ people like they do in the movies, making them cluck like a chicken, dance around or assassinate a person. Let me be very clear, psychologists are not vampires or count Dracula. Stage hypnosis that is depicted in the movies has as much truth to it as any fiction movie has to real life.

Having said that, hypnosis s a genuine psychological phenomenon, and is used by some therapists in clinical practice. However, it is not the hypnosis we think it is, merely a state of highly focused attention or concentration, accompanied with relaxation. It allows you to let go and actually disconnect your mind from your body and surrounding, enabling you to focus inwards. Kind of like meditation, or being lost in thought, or zoning out, phenomena we all experience sometimes. The only difference is that the therapist guides your thought process, which allows you to be more open towards suggestions.

Which brings us to the second part, contrary to popular belief; people under hypnosis are in total control of themselves and would never do anything they would normally find highly objectionable. To put it clearly, they do not do anything against their will and are consciously aware of their surroundings.

It is also important to note that NOT all therapists use hypnosis, nor does it work on everyone. Only some people are more susceptible to it having a trait called ‘hypnotizability’. And even this trait varies in degree from person to person. Hypnosis has been used along with treatment methods like CBT for pain, depression, anxiety, phobias to name a few. 
Remember, hypnosis is NOT mind control. You cannot be hypnotized against your will; it only works if you agree to let it happen. If it really were mind control psychologists would rule the world and have no issues in their personal lives. And people would be flooding their offices instead of pir faqirs, babas and other sources of ‘magic’. 👀🎩🔮

“But, I think generalizing everyone is never good in any scenario and gay girls are no exception. I think sexuality is one part of who you are. The awesome thing about people is we are all different, that's what makes us interesting. So, don't assume gay girls are going to look a certain way or act a certain way....” ... for more check out my blog post on misconceptions. I think most of the stereotypes and discrimination in the world is from just not knowing and making assumptions. It shouldn’t be bizarre to see two women kissing.. it shouldn’t be something that gets stares in public.. so... I hope to change that.
