What To Do When You Start Getting Dizzy?
You finally got to the gym, but now you’re about to pass out. You start feeling dizzy, but you’re also trying to tough it out. You don’t wanna wuss out. You keep going, but now you’re starting to see those little white spots. So you go to the trainer and you say, “I’m feeling dizzy.”
First of all….know that you’re not the first person this has happened to and you’re def not the last Also, this shit is common. Hellooooo? You’ve been sitting on your ass for a while and both you and your body are like, “WTF is this exercise shit?!”
Also, this is important: There is no fucking shame in this. No one. I mean NO ONE in here is judging you. If anything, we’re encouraging the fuck out of you because believe it or not, we’ve all been there. We all got our ass kicked during the first workout, hell….during the first month! We got chu’. We love you and no fucking way we are gonna let you pass out.
Here’s what to do:
1. Lie on your back with your feet on the wall.
This will get the blood to your head and help the dizziness go away. Take your time. No one’s gonna say, “ain’t nobody got time for that.” In fact, we got all the time in the world…..<3
2. When you are ready to get up…DON’T!
Get up slowly. We just spent all that time on the floor getting blood a.k.a. oxygen to your brain and then you go stand right up!!! That shit is going to make you hella dizzy again. Deep, slow breaths…
3. Sit up slowly and chill
Spend as much time sitting and chilling as you did lying down. Let the blood flow and gravity do its thing. Deep, slow breaths…
4. Stand up slowly and chill
Again, stand up slowly and chill until you feel 100% better 🙂
See?! You didn’t die! 🙂
