Salvere Blog: As Soon As Things Settle Down, I Will…

February 12, 2018

Do you find yourself saying, “as soon as things slow down, I’ll get back into my routine.” Or “I’m adjusting to a new schedule, so I’ll start when things settle in.” Or some version of these?

Do we really settle into a schedule that never changes? For all of you living in the DC/Maryland area, you better answer that a BIG “NO we don’t” with all the ice and strange funky weather we experienced this winter.

How often does your regular schedule get thrown off by weather, traffic, an unexpected meeting, a sick child or pet, waking up with a headache, car trouble, vacation, visits from friends, events at school or work, a delay coming home from a trip, an injury or reoccurring pain?

What if instead of waiting for that “regular” to happen, we adjusted our mindset to know that each day brings something new and different be it big or little? If we developed the idea that things always change, and we created an openness to adjusting to what the day brings?

I hear these things all the time impacting clients workout sessions as it’s usually the first things to get deleted from the schedule. Is there a way to combine activities?? A visit with a friend and a walk or workout?? Some outside time at lunch if you know it’s going to be a crazy evening? Remember, you’re important so give yourself the gift of health!

Salvere Blog: Community

December 9, 2015

Community — “the feeling of fellowship with others as a result of sharing a common attitude, interests and goals”

community wordle

The last few weeks I’ve been reflecting on the things going on in our society that don’t feel quite right. In my processing, I began to really step back and look at what really goes on – outside of the news and media, right in our own back yards. I thought about what really impacted my life over the last several years and realized there’s great power when a group of people come together.

From the girls, coaches, staff and board of directors at Girls on the Run to the wingmen, athletes and families in Athletes Serving Athletes, the students, mentors and steering committee members at LeadershipU and, most recently, the volunteers and kids at Thread – While each organization serves its own mission and purpose, the common thing is the community, passion, commitment and support surrounding each. Add to this amazing family and group of friends.

We truly have the ability to do great things, genuinely care about people, impact and influence change and provide support to those who don’t have it somewhere else. Looking around at the hundreds of people involved in these four small local organizations, we can create communities that give back without expecting in return and want to encourage others to do the best they can with whats important to them (not us!) while helping them when they need to be lifted back up. Each of us can do something to help make our community, whether large or small, a better place to live. Look for opportunities to do something intentionally nice for someone – every day.

How Thirsty Are You?

February 13, 2015

By Salvere Health and Fitness

Have you ever heard the saying, “You can lead a camel to the water but you can’t force it to drink?” I have a friend who has been struggling trying to workout and make better lifestyle choices. In this New Year, SHE DECIDED to make changes in her life to become healthier. I was excited for her and wanted to support her in this journey. She lives out of town and I knew she didn’t have a strong support system, so I offered to Skype with her on the days she wanted to workout. She liked the idea and we’ve been Skyping for a month now! She’s even thrown in extra days and activities on her own on the days we don’t Skype!

I asked that question earlier in this blog because my friend has always had the “tools” to workout and to have a healthier lifestyle, but SHE had to make the decision that it was time to start HER journey. We have gyms, probably some free weights at home, videos, You Tube video access, etc., to get tips and workouts. But, it’s not until YOU are thirsty enough to want to make the decision to workout and make lifestyle changes, is when you can quench your thrist! So how thirsty are you?…….Happy Drinking! (water that is)
