Take your power back

Inspired by my “quote of the day” app.

I’m going to keep this post short and simple.

You, and only you, have the power to change anything in your life.

In my very first Wellness (Public Health 101) class ever, I learned about the concept of “locus of control.”

If you have an internal locus of control your world view sounds like “this happened and I was an active party in it” an external locus of control sounds like: ” this happened TO me.”

In other words:

A person with an internal locus of control believes that he or she can influence events and their outcomes, while someone with an external locus of control blames outside forces for everything.

It’s more effective to recognize that we are in control of HOW we react to situations knowing that we can’t always control the situation itself.

It’s your life.

Own up to your failure and bask in the glow of your successes.

Forgive yourself when you fall short.

Keep moving forward.

Set big goals, take small steps.

Be well xx.

My name is Kristen! I am 23 years young and from Connecticut. I have a degree in English, and both personal and professional knowledge of holistic health. I've taken Graduate level Public Health courses and WWOOF'ed Hawaii where I learned about organic farming. I am currently well on my way to becoming a Certified Personal Trainer via the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I intend for dearfitkris to be a space where I can connect with others and engage in conversations about fitness and what it means to be healthy. The way that I personally define "fitness" is from a holistic perspective. Fitness is not just expressed physically, but mentally and on a soul-level as well. What does fitness mean to you?
