Imagine You Healthy & Make Every Thought Count
Small steps over time – and be intentional about those steps.
Be intentional that you want “change” and what that ideally looks like to you
For example, what are the intentions you want?
- To feel better?
- To have more energy?
- To do more of the things you love to do?
Maybe even to have a better outlook on life?
Be True to YOURSELF
We live in a world where we worry about what others think, about being judged by others. Being “liked” by others…
Sometimes this clouds our judgment. You will find that showing up as yourself (really digging in and deciding what better health looks like for you) is when being better to yourself and making healthier choices truly works.
If you can find a way to put the fear of what others are going to think aside when it comes to being more active, eating better, taking a certain supplement or avoiding a certain medication, you will be significantly more likely to succeed.
Desire to Change
Change by moving away from something – you want less of and – move toward something you want more of.
I am passionate about helping you on a path away from things that are holding you back in life to leading you to open up your life to a place of abundance. I am beyond excited – to help you with that…
The desire to change is going to be that thing that helps you push through on those days when you just don’t feel like doing it. Days when things feel hard or you don’t feel motivated.
A sense of Urgency
Giving yourself a sense of urgency will help you get going and do something to propel you forward even if it is not perfect.
That desire to change is what’s going to keep you moving forward – so you really need to figure out YOU – what is the “desire to change” in your life?
Put in the Work
Becoming unhealthy didn’t happen overnight so getting healthy probably won’t happen overnight either.
There is no such thing as “not having to do work” and to become successful
Gradually increase the number of healthy things you integrate into your life. Not letting old habits creep back in.
So to review: the steps look like:
- Be Intentional
- Be True to Yourself
- Find your Why – Your desire for change
- Add a sense of urgency to get your focus away from doing things perfectly – just start
- Put in the Hard Work
- also pay attention to details so you can follow through
Find Inspiration & Make Every Thought Count
Put yourself in positive surroundings – a walk, pleasant places in nature, calm spaces, images that lift you up. We have identified 4 things that may help to inspire you in your day, and in your life.
Four Things to Inspire You
- Be Inspired
Break your pattern of routine and do something that is adventurous to you. A walk, a bike ride… or something even more intense. What is something you can do physically to activate your brain, your body, and your breath? Those things energize you and open you to new ideas and thoughts.
Get outside your norm and go somewhere completely different from your typical routine. They are good for you even if you have to schedule your adventure out for a future time in your life. Make those bucket lists. Those are some of the things that will enrich your life.
2. Learn About history
Be inspired by visiting places where people from history thrived. These are archives of great accomplishments.
Even though they are from the past they can still inspire you to look forward. These people just lived their lives, they didn’t know that they were shaping history.
3. People Should Inspire You
See the passion and enthusiasm of others and live vicariously through their energy.
Even if they are not in an area you would normally be interested in it still helps open your mind and energy and inspiration.
Part of this is getting out of your own bubble. Meeting new people helps break your own boundaries of thinking and gives you other perspectives to see things from.
4. Write Something Every day
This doesn’t sound as exciting as the other items but it is a chance to “hang out” with yourself.
Think about what you actually want in life. Write out your own ideas and see how you matter, how you are enough. See what your dreams are and how they are important.
