I go the gym daily and on Sunday I decided to try something different and attended a class called, Bosu Blast.
Trying anything new is challenging but this workout was more daunting than I had expected.
As I was trying to balance myself, step in and out of the BOSU ball, I realized that I not only had to maintain my balance but control the right muscles to be able to maintain my stability, use my core, and be quick and coordinated with the music and the rest of the class. Phew, easier said than done.
I was lost in the first five to seven minutes, especially on some of the moves and to top the discomfort, I lost my balance and twisted my ankle.
At that moment, I decided to control my monkey mind and focus on what I wanted to achieve, learn which muscles I need to control to maintain my balance and yet be agile. Bottom line, I decided not to be spooked by a ball but believe in myself.
The workout was for an hour and after adopting the attitude of dare, try, observe, learn, I thoroughly enjoyed the last 40 minutes. No, I was not close to being perfect but I had a good cardio workout, and was ready to challenge myself for the same class next time.
- Doesn’t life present us with many situations like this ?

Every time we face a new or uncomfortable situation most of us experience negative thoughts and emotions.
- Do we buy into our negative thoughts, feelings and emotions? OR
- Do we run away from them and avoid them like a barge pole? OR
- Do we recognize those emotions and make a conscious decision to overcome them?
