The path to health differs from person to person, as we all have different personalities, different motivations, and different circumstances. Something that may sabotage my goals may not be a worry for you. Finding this unique balance that’s so individual for each of us is an incredibly crucial piece of our health journey. But one thing is sure — there are universal ways to reach your goals that work for everyone. That’s what we’re talking about today!
Here are a few that keep me on track and motivated…
Baby steps, not leaps. Take a deep breath. You don’t have to do it all at once. What a relief, right? Trying to change every part of your life at once is unrealistic, and it simply doesn’t work. Make a list of baby steps that will get you to your destination, and start one by one.
Don’t make it all about appearance. Working on a healthy lifestyle needs to be about much more than appearance. The mindset shift that comes when you start making it about health and longevity is astounding. By all means, be concerned with your appearance! I don’t at all think that’s wrong. But make your health journey about the longevity and quality of your life.
Give yourself leeway. Don’t expect perfection. This is a tip that you should put into practice from the beginning of your health journey and beyond. Do yourself a favor, a huge favor, and don’t expect perfection from yourself. It’s simply unattainable and unrealistic, and you’re setting yourself up for failure from the beginning using this method. When you expect perfection, you’re much more likely to throw the towel in completely when you make one small “mistake.” But when you realize these slip-ups are most certainly in the forecast, you can set up a game plan of how to attack them head on and continue moving forward full force.
So, have you found yours yet? Have you found the perfect steps, unique to you, to make your health goals a reality? If this sounds exactly like what you need email me and I’ll be in touch!
