Our final 'C' of returning from injury is CONFIDENCE. Nothing will help you move forward more effectively, and nothing seems harder to manufacture if you don't understand it.

Do you find yourself embracing and welcoming change? Or is there resistance and reluctance to it? How can change be viewed as an opportunity rather than a threat? What are the benefits of adding variety and novelty into your routine? Be ready to think and act outside of the box-- the way forward is not always obvious!

Episode 110: 5Cs of Returning from Injury: CONSISTENCY
Consistency is the bedrock of any program, of any new habit, of any meaningful RESULTS at all. How do we analyze and build consistency?  What do you want to achieve? Who do you wish to become? What’s holding you back from consistently working towards that goal and that identity? How do you shift from “having to” towards “getting to?” What will it take to form a consistent daily practice? Justin breaks it down and describes how being consistent may only require 5 minutes a day. Let's talk about it.

If your doctor tells you to 'take it easy', to 'not lift anything over 5 pounds,' or to just stop doing the activity you were doing when you first felt your pain... we need to talk . This advice is unlikely to do any harm, but it is also unlikely to move you forward toward health, wellness, function, and fulfillment. Justin breaks down some simple questions you can ask to clarify your situation, how to get your coach and doctor on the same page and talking to each other, and why sitting on the couch fixes almost nothing. .

Sometimes the effect of taking a new supplement, or putting on the new shoes, or starting the new program, is just the kick in the a** you need to create some desirable momentum. USE IT.
