What is “Second Wind”? Well, as per my knowledge it is an Idiom and also our Wellness Brand’s name! :)
Let me share an incident, Somewhere in the mid of 2021 when my husband & I decided to go on an evening stroll. At the very beginning, he thought it's gonna be a tiresome walk but after a few minutes of brisk walking he said he can go on for another hour or so and that the initial uneasiness has gone. “That's when I mentioned that he found his SECOND WIND” :D
Well, he asked what it meant that’s when I explained to him that “Second Wind” meant that even though they’re tired they’re still able to find the strength to press on. The second wind is a concept in exercise, where an athlete who feels out of breath and too tired to continue suddenly finds the energy to continue with less energy.
The second wind comes from extended effort, but the effort will be extended when we believe.
If you’re wondering how can you get your second wind in life.
Here’s how you can get it in 4 steps,
1. Know Your “Why?”
If we are running and we start to walk, then walking becomes easier later on.
If quitting is an option, then we take it. Quitting then becomes easier later on. We must know our own why! If we know why then we can come up with it anyhow. It begins each day with a check-in with ourselves.
Ask yourself these questions,
What’s your goal? What’s your purpose?
2. Don’t Stop-
No matter how bad something hurts in our life, there is an endpoint. Remember, Every workout ENDS! The pain period we are going through will stop! Hard times do not come to stay, they come to pass! Even slow walkers arrive!
But, IF you STOP, then all bets are off. You have to keep moving to get your second wind!
3. Find Your Rhythm-
Everything has a rhythm! Life has momentum!
Find your rhythm, breath, get back to your routine. Breath, get back to your routine. Breath, reset, re-focus, get back to your routine.
We want our second wind in life NOW. And sometimes we get it…
Patience is a higher-order skill and one which we do not practice today. I can guarantee you that your second chance in life is coming if you just hang on long enough.
Regardless of where the phrase “getting a second wind” everyone can agree on its definition. This phrase means that you’ve found the motivation you need to press on regardless of how difficult or strenuous the situation may be. So the next time you find yourself in a situation where you once believed you couldn’t make it any further but have somehow managed to press on you can say it’s because you “got a second wind.”
