Getting used to being in situations that are outside our comfort zone is the ultimate way to bring change and growth into our lives. This month, the theme with Under Armour Women is all about personal growth and getting comfortable with the uncomfortable. So, we’re breaking down action steps and mindset tips that we believe to be helpful for this kind of growth. We promise you, although it can be intimidating, it’s always worth it!
TAKE BABY STEPS.
Sometimes looking at everything all at once can be incredibly overwhelming and cause us to procrastinate or give up. Instead, do one small thing each day that’s outside of your comfort zone. Is it trying a workout class you never thought you could do? Perhaps increasing your weights, or reps in a workout? Or maybe even asking an acquaintance to hang out? You don’t have to change your life overnight, but it will be much easier to take larger risks and step when you see the positive change that happens from the little things.
It’s important to understand exactly what it is that you want. We highly suggest grabbing a pen and paper and physically writing it down. This could mean a career change or a physical / mental change, a new relationship that you want … whatever it is, get really specific and understand the future “you.” Yes, this is how you manifest! Write down how you will feel when you reach that milestone. If you don’t have a vision or framework to work off of, it’ll be much harder to turn that visualization into reality. When you can picture it and feel the sensation of having it, you’re already on your way there.
Many times, the only roadblock stopping people from getting where they want to go is the belief they don’t deserve what it is they’re going after. “I’m not qualified enough”, “No one will listen to me” … these thoughts truly prevent us from taking action. It’s really important that we believe we can do it and we deserve the best for ourselves. You will see the magic that happens when you make this mindset shift.
Maybe your first try doesn’t go as planned, or there are few roadblocks along the way. Remember, you can not lose what is meant for you. Don’t give up – this is the time that really matters. Know that there is no need to settle, because the right thing is already on its way to you.
Patience and consistency are key here. Instead of chasing instant gratification, aim for long term success. It’s all about how you show up daily, each of those little tweaks and new habits make an impact.
What we’re rocking in these photos: the Under Armour Women Infinity Bra + Meridian Leggings. The Infinity Bra has ergonomic support, which has a molded design that syncs with your body’s natural shape and movement. It also has better breathability with the cored out padding eliminating extra bulk and a flexible fit. The Meridian Legging + Shorts are softer than soft, yet perfectly supportive. The stay-put waistband helps us to keep going, instead of stopping and adjusting.
