F- Freedom to be who you want to be.
To be strong, but not to be afraid to be feminine, to be kind, to be vulnerable, to be the true you.
What’s stopping you from taking charge of your health? Reject the norms of what women should be, and have the courage to be who you really desire to be.
There are days when we forget that we are in charge and in full control of what we do and how we treat our bodies. And we tend to forget, the more positive energy you generate, the more efficient your body and mind is.
We need gentler, and more consistent steps, not a frantic push forward with no compass. Let’s not obsess on how many steps we take when we don’t even know where we’re going! Can quality matter more than quantity in 2021?
Less can be more.
Gentle is powerful.
Treat yourself with love, compassion, respect, and understanding every day, and others around you will notice and follow.
So go back to the fundamental needs and focus on your freedom of expression ー whether it’s in your career, your family life, or your personal goals.
Take what lessons you can from 2020 and leave the rest behind! Now is the time to recover your health, rebuild your inner beauty and strength - Resync your body for 2021!
E- emotionally balanced & intelligent
Let’s make that one of the strongest goals in 2021: to seek deep emotional balance.
It’s easy to love someone else, but really what does that love mean if compassion, respect and appreciation for yourself are a challenge?
Let’s be less reactive and more in charge of kindness. Let’s focus on transition from reactive to emotionally balanced, what do you say?
When your friend, your family, or your partner needs your emotional support and you’re running on chaotic or empty tank, you simply can’t give them your best. It’s like the emergency instructions on a plane: make sure you’re ok first, and then you can help the people around you.
Balance your emotional stress by turning your positive energy first towards yourself: when you are emotionally balanced and available, it’s an easier and more pleasant task to care for those around you.
You may not even know it, but you have a net of connective tissue underneath the skin that helps you move effortlessly, protects your body from the damage of everyday life, or it can predispose you to injury and deep damage when you don’t take care of it.
That fascia net, connects your entire body from the ground up. Yes from your feet all the way to your head.
Your fascia translates the balance or imbalance of your decisions into cellular signals transmitted through your entire body.
Take a look at my free ebook “Resync Your Performance and Recovery” for a wealth of evidence-based strategies to support the fascia's health.
If you want real, practical examples of how your fascia should be taken care of nutritionally check our newest recipe book Resync Every Layer Of Your Body

M- mindset - where we switch from looking at the superficial level to looking deep within, a switch from covering up how you look on the outside, to nourishing and appreciating you so well that the glow radiates from within.
A mindset with mental and emotional balance at the center shows up as physical balance on the outside.
When a courageous and confident attitude gets hurt, appreciate the moment, focus on gratitude for the failures - those emotional injuries are echoed in our connective tissues, too. And appreciating them vs regretting will be visible in posture and mindset.
To foster that deeper mindset, there are tools that have worked for women. A simple ritual in the morning like taking a scoop of Resync Recovery with your morning tea can help you establish a consistent routine that facilitates mindfulness and healthy blood flow every day.
Resync Recovery, full of plant-based nitrates from beetroot, red spinach, and aronia berry, antioxidants, and bioactives for optimal physical support, is already a key piece of many professional athletes’ routine.
Add a deeper intention to your hot morning beverage. It may just be the reframe you need to start supporting yourself from the inside-out.
Every year, it seems we renew our exercise goals. Inevitably, we jump in without enough information, experience, or consistent plan - often resulting in an injury that sets us back to where we were or lackluster results.
When I say to get active, I mean to focus on form - physical function will follow, but only if every nerve in every muscle fiber fires right.
Paying attention to quality, not just the reps and sets, ensures that you’re setting a strong foundation that will see you not just through this new year, but to every year forward.
Also don’t just put the work in and ignore the other critical inputs. How do you gain a resilient musculoskeletal system if you’re not supporting it with the best nutrients for strong connective tissue? I am not talking about gaining bulky muscles, but multidimensional strength and elasticity to gain confident posture and body.
Without a healthy pliable fascia, the rest of your tissues and organs can’t get the coordinated health you’re looking for. As we’ve discussed in the past, the right nutrients isn’t just getting the right protein, you have to get the right amino acids (hint: collagen protein is key for fascia), the right carbohydrates, and the right fats.
A lot of people think of connective tissue as inert: it just transmits mechanical force carried by your muscles. But recent research shows that our connective tissues are vibrant with life: changing, remodeling, and adapting to the current physical, mental, and nutritional state.
Even your bones, thought of as a painfully slow-to-heal tissue, can increase mineralization and improve markers of bone mineral density by the hour - with the right support!
So what’s the best way to strengthen your fascia, skin, tendons, ligaments, muscles, bones and more? You have to look at the common denominator of your connective tissues: the health of your collagen.
And the best way to promote collagen health nutritionally is by using clean hydrolyzed collagen peptides from high quality sources with synergistic ingredients to support collagen synthesis.
Once you’ve got your first base covered with collagen peptides, then you can consider all the other nutritional ingredients that may improve connective tissue health. One great example are natural nitrates which turn into nitric oxide (N-O) once in your blood. N-O is a critical molecule that opens up your blood vessels and improves blood flow, in addition to many other benefits. Many of your connective tissues don’t have very good access to the nutrients circulating in your blood. Ensuring optimal nutrient delivery with blood-flow-promoting natural nitrates is one key step to ensuring pain-free range of motion, injury-free workouts, and staying physically active all year long.
Putting your health first will take putting other things last. If you do something that eats up your time, take a hard look at what doing that thing is helping you to be better at.
If you’re not sure what’s holding you back, you might consider adding some variety to your routine to see what falls off when you shake things up. Whether it’s the same physical activities day after day or a mental rut that you can’t think yourself out of, providing yourself with new experiences can get your body moving and your brain thinking in stimulating new ways.
Thinking and moving in new ways is the first step to quitting whatever is not working for you and starting up new habits that will lead you to success in 2021.
You may have given some thought to how your gait ー the way you move as you walk or run ー can have an effect on your entire health. Perhaps you’ve seen first hand how damage caused by improper movement can lead to pain and ultimately result in poorer physical and emotional health.
Have you ever considered what your emotional gait looks like, though; how your thought processes affect you actually physically?
The damage done by unhealthy thoughts echoes through the layers of your connective tissue. It is visible on your skin, but it affects every system in your body. Therefore positive thinking and emotional balance contribute to healthier fascia and better overall healthier lifestyle.

Besides that, research also shows that collagen can promote your visible, superficial health from the inside out.

E- environment - Where your social, emotional, and physical balance meet.
When it comes to your external environment, being able to stop and diagnose any imbalances is an essential step on the path to finding true equilibrium.
Being Busy Is Easy.
It’s an excellent cover-up for not dealing with and focusing on you and your external distractions in life. Sadly, if you are too overwhelmed and too busy with being available for things and to people, who bring more chaos, not balance, it can have a seriously detrimental effect on your health.
Stop, Say No, And Be True You.
Stop moving for a moment, literally and metaphorically, and assess the situation.
It’s critical to prioritize you and your well-being.
It isn’t all about focusing more time on the things that are important to you. It is also about taking time and energy away from things, situations, and people who aren’t serving you.
Gain fresh clarity and focus on where you are unbalanced. Take a pen, take notes, and address what competing interests exist, who and what is stealing your attention and time.
Look for situations, places, not just people that add more stress and frustrations to your life.
You might be shocked to realize that the way you spend your time doesn’t align with the way you want to live your life and where you invest most of your energy ultimately is not serving your goals and profound equilibrium.
Remember, you are always aiming for consistent and steady progress, not perfection. It means you have to not only be disciplined but have compassion for yourself as well in this healthy transition.
While the journey towards equilibrium takes practice, I believe you can do it!
If it was an imbalance that best described 2020 for you, then let it be the balance that brings you to the new year with preparedness and poise! Whatever your #QuarantineGoals are, Resync is here to help you gear up for a long-awaited healthy and happy new year.
