CHEK Academy Insights | Stress-Free Business During the COVID-19 Pandemic

One way or another, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused massive changes in our lives. I know how hard it is to calibrate your life in times like these, but this too shall pass, and the world will move on. 

What we need now is a better way to cope with the overwhelming amounts of stress that this turbulent time has created. 

How do we do that? How do we return to all the good, healthy habits we once established and get back into a rhythm?

Well, the problem lies in the bigger picture and the broader context of the matter. 

In reality, the pandemic is nature’s wakeup call. Returning to a life based on our innate wisdom – the wisdom our bodies share with us every day – is the way to move forward.

What we need is a (r)evolution in how we treat health and fitness overall. Focusing on holistic wellness – that includes, mental, emotional, spiritual AND physical fitness as a whole -is key to living healthy lives and having stronger immunity. As health and fitness professionals, it’s our job to make that possibility a reality by adapting our businesses and training. 

Stress Factors and Stress Management in 2020

Building an integrated health and performance business from the ground up requires a vision – in my opinion, that’s the vision of healing the world, one person at a time. 

The mind, body, and spirit must always coexist in a state of alignment and balance. Nothing can disrupt that balance quite the way fear can. Fear of the disease, worries about job security, and the abrupt standstill of everyday services create a lot of stress and that’s understandable.

So we need to do our best to calm those fears and manage the stresses when they arise. Learning those skills will truly save people from losing sleep, suffering through depression, or making their existing health conditions worse. And this is exactly why I designed the Chek Academy to provide health and fitness professionals with an extensive stress-management toolbox – it’s an essential component of holistic lifestyle coaching. 

The Unique Adaptability of Chek Professionals

We don’t just teach Chek Professionals the essentials of my approach to holistic health and fitness. We also show them the fundamentals of fulfilling their own unique businesses visions. My vision of changing the world begins with leading my students, and it carries on forward to their clients.
