farid zitoun in the naturheilzentrum bottrop blog: “bottrop beweg dich” (get bottrop moving) - more than just communal commitment to hospice work
when People get moving for other People
i admit it. there are some things i just can’t say “no” to. i’m sure that almost everyone knows the feeling. when a good cause captures my imagination, I put my heart and soul into it. this doesn’t just apply to my work as a naturopath, but also to the place where I was born: for bottrop, for the People and for the town. above all, for those who get something moving. who fly the flag for causes. who do something and bring others along with them. i am therefore going to be there on the coming friday, june 17, for the next “bottrop beweg dich” (get bottrop moving). the event, which was organized together with peter stadtmann, the pharmacist from the old chemist shop, is now taking place here for the sixth year running. it is simply terrific and the nicest part about it is that everyone is there to take part, almost without exception - ranging from kindergartens, schools, associations to authorities. kudos! new records are set every year – in terms of the number of participants, among other things.
“bottrop beweg dich” - a charity run for a good cause
this year, everyone (including the organizers) also wants to raise the stakes. i am completely in my element here. always push yourself to the limit, always set yourself new goals - and then surpass them. i have therefore been on the road a lot over the last few weeks, but have trained whenever time allowed. i am ready once again and am looking forward to “bottrop beweg dich”. i hope you are, too. will we see each other on friday on the hansaring?
my three tips from the naturopathic practice - on the subject of getting fit:
- success is also a state of mind! unfamiliar challenges often lead to blockages. which amateur athlete doesn’t know that feeling? the muscles tense up. we runners sense a new challenge to our legs before a big event. technique and coordination suffer. it’s therefore important to control your agitation level. how does that work? that’s no secret. simply concentrate on what’s coming next. when you arrive at the “bottrop beweg dich” event, warm up, go to the start and complete the laps. remain at ease, find your own tempo, consciously breathe in and out. it’s not the time that counts, but rather the distance you’ve already travelled.
- banish negative thoughts. they only cause us stress. and stress lessens our performance. it has even been scientifically proven that the neurotransmitter serotonin can be activated though self-motivation. therefore, set yourself a realistic goal for friday and approach the event in a positive frame of mind.
- put your doubts aside. i know how it feels when the muscles completely seize up into a cramp. therefore: remain calm and don’t drive yourself mad before the run for no reason. who constantly asks themselves before a run whether they can manage it? those who tell themselves that they’ll get a cramp before they start, will get one. constant self-doubt burns its way into our subconscience. the body reacts to this. so don’t set up a self-fulfilling prophecy.
