The world is different now than it was before the pandemic. We may have run ourselves ragged and are dealing with some serious burnout. We might be saying ‘yes’ to everything to try to make up for lost time. There’s a ton of pressure right now, but J.Go is here to take the pressure off and help you figure out what YOU need. Chances are, you need to protect your energy. 

Short Exercise:

What is something you learned about yourself from the pandemic that you no longer care to do? Anything that you will no longer put up with? Write it down and share (if you want!) to @JgoFitLife on Instagram. 

For J.Go, she used to have really bad FOMO. She now wants to be more choosy about how she spends her time. 

- She has a lot of goals, and wants her actions and mindset to align with them 

Surround Yourself With Support: 

- It’s important to surround yourself with support. Who we surround ourselves with in the next couple of months is going to determine whether or not we reach our potential. “

- If you’re in a negative space and people aren’t supportive, try to take yourself out of it or take some time to be around people who are supportive. 

YOU Set the Temperature

- In order to reach full potential you have to protect your energy. 

- Try to maintain a higher vibration. 

- You want to set the temperature of the room, and don’t let yourself be affected by any negative energy when you enter a room.

- If you’re able to fill up your cup before entering some low-vibration environments, it can make a big difference. 

The Post-Quarantine Comedown: 4 Scenarios

  1. Post Quarantine Comedown: 
  • You might realize you need more time for yourself. 
  • You’ve gotten accustomed to spending time alone at your house. 
  • Don’t lose the self care habits that you created. 
  • Recognize the things that you need and incorporate them into your life.
  1. Quarantine Compensating: 
  • Stop keeping up with the Joneses. Do what’s right for you. 
  • People are sharing their highlight reels again and you might start comparing your life to someone else’s. 
  • If you find yourself feeling insignificant, get out of that environment and take a break from that space. Put your phone away and go for a walk or do some grounding (sit with your feet in the dirt, breath, and think about “what is it that I need today? What does my highest self need?”) 
  • Don’t feel pressure to compensate for the entire time you weren’t able to do anything. 
  • Don’t post things or do things just because you feel obligated to. 
  • Think: Am I really doing this for myself?
  • Figure out what’s best for you and don’t do what everyone else is doing. 
  1. Post Pandemic Pressure: 
  • We’ve all seen Hot Girl Summer. Everyone is talking about coming into summer having lost weight. 
  • If you gained weight, you should NOT feel guilty. Feel proud that you didn’t give up on yourself. 
  • It’s just a number. It’s just your weight. It doesn’t define your worth. 
  • If you want to go out and do things, don’t let your weight hold you back. 
  • Instead of getting down on the number on the scale, ask yourself, “Is this something I need to recognize in my mindset? Are there parts of my lifestyle that I want to change?”
  •  If you want to start doing some health-positive things, see it as an act of self love, instead of an act of self loathing or punishing yourself for gaining weight. 
  • There’s a lot of pressure around “Hot Girl Summer”. There’s an expectation of success and glow-ups. Don’t get caught up in other people’s success stories. 
  • People are dealing with weight gain, anxiety, overwhelm, and burnout. 
  • There’s a cycle of compensation. People feel bad, they compensate by showing a highlight reel. People consume this, and feel guilt and shame. 
  • We’re not being real about the shit we’re working through. It’s a false narrative that’s holding us back. 
  • - Jordan is still recognizing that she’s healing from this past year. You’re allowed to celebrate this summer and life but still hold space for healing and for grieving. 
  • - Some days you’re going to feel down, some days you're going to feel confident. It’s ok to allow room for the ups and downs. 
  • See the temperature of your life like an oven. The temperature of an oven fluctuates above and below the number you set. You can consciously set the temp of your life, but remember it won’t be that way 100% of the time. Allow the ups and downs. In fact, don’t see the harder moments as “downs” or as failure, see it as growth. It’s part of the journey. Once you see that, growth can happen. 
  1. Post Quarantine Growth: 
  • Maybe you’ve seen a lot of growth in yourself and in the people you’re around. 
  • You might have clarity that you need a change in your life. You might have the correct mindset, and see that growth needs to happen, but you’re scared. 
  • You might need to change your environment or your habits. You might know that things around you are no longer serving you. If you want an environment to grow in, you can’t avoid hard conversations. 
  • Avoidance is not growth. Vulnerability is. 
  • Allow space for growth and recognize that that growth is uncomfortable. It’s not about perfection, it’s about creating progress and loving yourself through all chapters of your life. 
  • You might be struggling to keep your energy up. It’s OK if you don’t feel great. Slowly do things to prioritize yourself. Think about what you need each day. 
  • You don’t have to keep saying yes to everyone and everything.
  • You’re worthy of taking time each week to focus on you. 
  • Everyone has their own struggles.  Everyone’s journey will look different. Focus on your actions and mindset, prioritize your energy (instead of comparing yourself to others) and you'll find true success. 

The Go Retreat: 

J.Go is hosting the Go Retreat, Sept 17-19, a women’s Beach Retreat in Charleston. 

  • Attendees will leave with a vision of what they want for their life and feeling empowered to accomplish their goals. 
  • Do you feel like you need a more supportive environment? That you want to meet more supportive people? Are you feeling a calling to create change in your life but you don’t know where to start - you need to be here at this event!
  • Bonus:  If you listen to this episode, tell me, when you get your ticket and I’ll give you my 6-week Training Naked Program as well as my 5k Training Program (a $1000 value)
