Many things can break your focus if we let them. Staying true to your goals is especially important when things go wrong. Chaos does not have to be your default way of life.
Much of it we bring on ourselves through TV, news, and social media. Add busy work schedules, parenting, school, etc. and things can get really hectic. Add the election on top of it and people are feeling overwhelmed.
Training can get pushed aside during times like these, and that is not good. This when you need it the most!
Tough times and unexpected calamities require more discipline to keep your training schedule intact. Getting a big dose of endorphins is almost worth it by itself; but getting stronger and healthier is never a bad thing.
Stay focused on your training goals and life goals, you will not regret it!
