After eating our weight in turkey and stuffing, it is time to get back into the swing of things. As I stated earlier, my golf season has come to a close, but that does not mean that I need to stop doing what I do to ensure my game is ready for next year. Yes, I realize that I still have 6 months to go, but establishing my routine early is the secret to my golfing success. Additionally, the other health benefits are critical to the successes in the ‘off-the-course’ part of my life. So, it is time to get started.
After the many recent changes in my life, routine is the one thing that I discarded. This is because I did not want the unneeded stress (self-imposed) of trying to carve out a space while couch surfing (or maybe I just got lazy). Although my routine is not difficult, it would have caused a bit of challenge for the wonderful friends who were putting us up for three weeks. Now that we are back in our own home, I feel that it is time to ‘get back into the swing of things’.
The first thing I am going to do is start stretching again. In activity is a killer to my ability to easily move around. Additionally, house renovations have taken a bit of a physical toll on my body, so it is time to start stretching.
I do not need any extra physical workouts at this time, but I will need one soon. So, I am going to do some research and find a new workout routine that will be focused on improving my physical strength while focusing on the muscles needed for my golf swing. There are plenty of great routines out there and it is time for me adopt one.
Finally, I need to expand my mental horizons. I am going to take the time to learn something new this year while expanding on the other things I started over the past few years. After stem cell treatment last year, I find that this part of my recovery is the slowest and it is time to focus. I am not sure what I plan to learn this year, but I am sure you will hear about it over the course of the next six months.
It is time to get back into the swing of things. I will start with the above three things and see where it takes me. Of course, my focus will be on golf, but they will have many positive influences on the other aspects of my life.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
