When you’re stubborn, ambitious, and impatient it can lead you into some trouble. I’m not afraid to ask for help, but I like doing things on my own —and that means avoiding asking for help. There are some things I can get away with like small DIY projects and then there’s what I think are “small” DIY projects that turn into me with a blown up tube of silicone frantically trying to get it off of my hands for a half-hour, until my Mom decides to come over and check up on me at the right time (I don’t know how she does it… I swear she has radar!). Then there are more serious times, where I’m going through a depressive episode. I used to be afraid to ask for help during those matters, but now I know that’s a big no-no. I was thinking of these minor and major times where I’ve needed to ask for help in my life and it really made me think of VIBE and fitness goals. If you’ve never worked out before or you have had bad experiences with trying to, it’s challenging to know where to start. There are so many factors that make it challenging —trying to find something you enjoy, something that is safe (especially for injuries), finding the time that fits into your schedule, and having the motivation and emotional support. PHEW. That’s a heck of a lot of things to figure out on your own. The first thing I look for in a place to exercise is the COMMUNITY and the AESTHETIC, you know a place with the right VIBE. Starting with these components makes it easier to want to show up because you’re getting the right physical environment and the right emotional environment to help you find your way into an exercise routine. At VIBE, not only will you be surrounded by a whole VIBE Tribe of people with similar goals, but you have an abundance of resourceful people that are willing to answer all of your questions and support you in every way.
Never be afraid to ask for help. Get out of your own way and make way for your VIBE.
