This will be our 6th year making November positive and working on improving our mental health by focusing on the positive! Starting November 1st we will have a no complain zone at CrossFit Bluegrass for the entire month!
We have bands at the gym for every coach and athlete! These bands should be worn during class and you are welcome to take it home (they are yours to keep)!
The hope is to bring awareness to how powerful our thoughts and attitude are everyday. Let’s be positive and grateful throughout the day and let that spread throughout not only CFBG but our city!
..The complaint-free bracelet rules…
So, here are the rules once you get your no-complaining bracelet on your wrist:
If you catch yourself complaining, you take [the bracelet] and you move it to the other wrist, the idea is to ultimately keep it (on the same wrist) for 21 days (to help form the habit)!
No gossiping, either!
Pay attention to how you’re speaking. If you say, “Oh, my leg hurts,” that might just be a statement of fact. But if you’re droning on about the pain in your calf, that’s probably a complaint.
If you want to know the difference between a comment and a complaint, pay attention to your feelings about the issue.
We will be adding some form of weekly thankfulness and gratitude to our wodify comments! Let’s focus on the positive, even if it we are having some negative experiences.
WE GOT THIS BLUEGRASS!!
