Responding to injuries…

Kevin Lindquist
January 17, 2022
It has taken me five or six cycles of trying to increase my activity level to learn that injuries happen. And sometimes they happen in what seem like really stupid ways. A few examples: I ripped the last ligament in my ankle while sitting at my desk and rolling my ankle around in the floor. Yes, while seated I did something that created the need for surgery. Well, it was the “last straw” per say. I sprained my big toe trying to do Burpees as part of Chris Hemsworth’s workout program. I couldn’t walk the next morning. There have been a few others and honestly - they beat me. I chose to let the injury be an excuse when it comes to my activity level. I decided to do nothing instead of doing something active. I heard a phrase watching a YouTube video from a former Olympic runner recently: “Active Recovery” Instead of “rest” or “rest days” - maybe we can think of things we can do that are fun that are still active. Today, my toe and ankle both flared up. Don’t know why. But I know that I chose to go on a walk anyway - just a shorter one - and then I came back home and worked my upper body. We can do this!

Key Takeaways

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
