ealThe right answer and the next step come from calm.
How much work is actually needed to get something done or to get to the next level? Is the task itself as difficult as the emotional machinations that accompany it?
Aligning with right effort is a skill. Wanting something intensely and over-efforting does not improve the chances of getting it. Working effectively, objectively, and taking more definitive action-steps helps. Discipline is required to work appropriately and then let go. This frees up energy for other things and prevents tunnel vision.
In the gym, complete the volume of work assigned. Outside the gym, stick with the nutrition guidelines. Release angst relating to work volume and food. Use that extra energy for something inspiring.
