After a 10 night trip in Europe, I'm ready to start normal life of personal training in Chicago again! On my first day back, though, I realize that my routine isn't as stress free as I thought. This realization isn't a surprise. Usually the greatest benefit of my extended holidays is my return from my mental break.
As I step back into my normal life, I notice my tendencies to be overly aggressive while driving and the pressures I place on myself to squeeze days of work into a few hours. You can only imagine the stress this contributes to my daily life and the bad habits that occur as a result. I, no different from anyone else, also fall whim to poor food choices or less healthy behaviors.
While my body type won't allow me to gain major weight, this lifestyle can lead to other health problems including high blood pressure and diabetes. There's no way around this-everyone must pay attention to their unhealthy tendencies. In order to do this, though, you may have to pull yourself from your reality for a mental awakening. Once you return, you may realize the need to simplify your life. This may help you with your weight loss goals while meeting with a Chicago personal trainer.
