Positive vibes

Hi! My name is Desiree Winkel – owner and founder of Fitness Coaching. Fitness Coaching is a studio/gym where you can work out with professional trainers. Among the workout programs we offer are boot camps, cardio boxing, functional training, weight loss training, group training and personal training. Our studio is located in Simpson Bay.

Have you thought about it? Really! Have you thought about how much your life can change from one day to the other? A lot of you might be feeling like: “Why me?” Or “Things will never be the same.” Or “I don’t know what to do.”

I know it’s difficult now, but instead of asking, “Why me?!”, why not say, “Try me!”

These days, we all have to stay at home. Nowhere to go. And here’s what has happened: Lots of people have started doing their jobs from home. Teachers are educating their students online. Meetings are being held online. Trainings are being done online. Contact with friends and family is being done online more than ever before.

Of course, human contact is important! And that will get back to normal someday, but it will take a while. Did you ever think that working from home would lead to having more time for your husband/wife, girlfriend/boyfriend, children, animals or garden, for example?

Oh, the amount of money you save by staying home and working from home! You have no time in traffic. You don’t have to get up that early. You can now spend time in that house or apartment that you bought or rented – the house that you made so cozy and comfortable. Why spend so much money on a place to live, if you hardly spend any time in it?

In the end, it adds up. You don’t have to go for gasoline as often; you can clean your house yourself, cook healthy dinners, relax in your house/apartment, or chat with friends and family online when you are done. You will be way more rested, have more money in the bank, and see that in this time of need, things can be different.

We all thought that everything we did was so extremely important; we basically did not have time for anything else. The truth is we must fill in our hours of the day differently, smarter. Now that it’s necessary, we suddenly see things that we thought were impossible as possible.

It really makes me happy that nature can finally get a chance to breathe. If we continue to work from home most of the time, can you imagine what a positive impact that will have on nature!

We must learn a positive lesson from this: Pointing fingers is easy when you don’t have to deal with emergencies yourself.

Trust the process. Be kind to one another. Find the good in the bad, because this will help you more. There will always be people who want to help you. Do not take advantage of that, though. Plan and try to keep you and your family safe. Be honest to others and yourself. The more I face challenges in life, the more creative I become, the more I like to fight the smart way. And I know I will not be the only one. Together we are strong – SXMSTRONG I would say.
