[Episode 11] It’s OK To Do Nothing

by | Apr 10, 2020

Listen to the podcast episode…

This week Non Gendered Fitness is taking a mini break.

I get that self care is super important and it’s something we share with you often. This week, I’m practicing exactly what I speak about.

With so much intense stuff going on in our individuals lives and around the world, I’m sure we’re all feeling stressed in many ways. In this time you don’t have to be getting active. You don’t have to be filling your time.

You can take this time to simply rest. Seriously, sleep is super beneficial and at the moment, if you’re not feeling up for anything, then getting enough sleep will hugely benefit your wellbeing.

If you want to know what you can do to get more sleep, you can check out episode 6 about getting quality sleep and setting up a nice sleep routine for yourself.

If you’re experiencing a lot of distress through this time, please reach out and talk to someone.

Talking to someone can be super amazing and helpful, even if it’s a little scary a first. If you don’t have a close friends or partner/s that you can share with, there are a bunch of crisis support lines out there that can help you. In Australia we’re lucky to have some LGBTQIA+ specific support lines.

Australia there is Switchboard or Qlife  – 1800 184 527. Here you can call or follow the links to web chat with someone.

If you’re looking for a general help line there is

Headspace for young people aged 12-25 – 1800 650 890

Beyond Blue – 1300 22 4636

Lifeline –  13 43 57

If you’re outside Australia this list may have the number for the crisis line in your country.

I know things are tough right now friends. I know we are all experiencing this differently. Regardless of where you are or what you’re going through, please know that you’re not alone and this will pass.

My passion to help others through developing an active and healthy lifestyle, along with my desire to contribute as much as I can back to our queer community, has led me to co-found Fearless Movement Collective. To be a small part of your day that makes a HUGE impact on your life would be one of the most gratifying and rewarding experiences that I could hope to have.
