This week we have the privilege of hearing from Coachwell’s CoFounder and Professional Coach Dianna Salciccioli. She truly believes that if an individual desires to grow and flourish in any area of their life, they can. That belief drives her to encourage, inspire and come alongside those who express a readiness to move forward in challenging or dormant areas of their lives and to celebrate wins with them! There’s simply nothing she finds more exciting! Her post below challenges us all to take a moment to catch our breath and recover even in the most hurried seasons of life.
Up at 5:00 am, I am blurry-eyed as I grab my spin class shorts and tennis shoes. With the loving encouragement of my daughter-in-law who joins me, I hop in the car and head to the Bend Athletic Club for an early morning spin class.
I have noticed something about me; if I think about a solid hour of spinning I feel overwhelmed by the daunting ride ahead. However, as the instructor leads us to ride in intervals, the time begins to fly. When asked to push hard I am sure I can do it for 3 or 4 minutes if I know there’s an end in sight.
How much harder do we push our bodies when we know a break is on the horizon?
This morning I was thinking about the need for recovery time in our lives.
What could recovery look like in your life?
I know for certain that if my spin class instructor required us to maintain a high intensity for the entire hour, many of us would not return, some might simply pass out. That’s why I am so thankful for recovery after an interval of hard work, even if it is 5:00 in the morning!
To your excellence in resting well,
