Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

The future can be scary for some of us. It’s normal to be uncomfortable with the unknown and uncertain. But future tripping, the act of making your way into the future and tripping over what exists, is not an effective way of handling your worries. This kind of thinking can easily create more worry and concern for what lays ahead. Though it may be hard, working to stay in the present and remain focused on the task right in front of you is a better way of handling what you may be anxious about.



  • Future Tripping: When you place yourself in the future and trip over, or imagine yourself failing, before you have even begun.
  • Work to remain present through deep breathing and focus on the next best thing that you can implement to move your forward.
  • Remember, the future is out of your control but your present state is very much available to you.
