What is a “PR”?

A PR is a “Personal Record”. The term comes from the gym and from competitive sports training. Crosfitters, bodybuilders, and Powerlifters, as well as runners and swimmers, use the term “PR” to refer to a personal record or a personal best. It could be a best time, best weight lifted, best set of reps and so on.

A PR doesn’t have to come from the gym. PRs come from life. Life PRs are essential to our happiness and motivation on a daily basis.

Some examples of great life PRs are:

  • A record number of days off of a bad habit like smoking or eating candy or watching too much TV
  • Your furthest distance walked or run
  • A record number of days getting up early or not hitting “snooze”.
  • A record number of days hours or minutes doing anything good for your body or mind

The sky is the limit when it comes to setting personal records!
