Sometimes its not easy for us to admit that we've been winging it health-wise. We ignore the fact that we need to make a desperate change for the better. I know its not easy for us to admit that we've been winging it health-wise! How long can we ignore the fact that we need to make a desperate change for the better? How many times have.
What does it take for us to get to that point where we finally say... "I need to make a dramatic change to improve my health"...??
Trust me, I've been there, I am there...and I get it...!
Have you started on a good self care regime but simply fail to follow through because you let daily stresses and bad habits take over?
Sometimes its not easy for us to admit that we've been winging it health-wise. We ignore the fact that we need to make a desperate change for the better. We get busy, lazy and easily distracted! We become submissive to our 'will power' and succumb to temptations, and end up eating what we shouldn't, over indulge and delve into laziness! Trust me, I've been there, I am there...and I get it!
"When you fail to plan...then you plan to fail! Simple as that!
I know how it is to think..."I will get started on a self care routine tomorrow or next week,... because right now I want to eat this donut!" I also, like many people, am a pretty good procrastinator! I know that what actually happens is that, next week comes around and not having began to get started because getting fast food on the run and being a couch potato is much easier! And it's all because we haven't yet readied our mindset to begin a better way of existing.
For many people, taking care of themselves is time consuming. It is way too easy to abuse eating the right way. Taking vitamins is just one more thing to do and exercising is hard to fit into our busy lives.
So, if you are one of many people stuck in a bad cycle of abusing your health, what do you do? How do you break the bad cycle and where do you begin to make it better?
I want to help you have a place to start, with a plan that you can stick with and be able to fall back on,...for "if or when the bad habits set back in."
I'm not going to bore you with all of the technical and physical reasons of why you should eat better, exercise and drinking 8 glasses of water a day...So on and so forth...because you already know that! Right? You've already heard it and read about it, over and over, time and time again! I would however, like to motivate you to start your new self care habits by helping you to make a plan ahead of time.
By examining ...WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, HOW and most importantly WHY...so that you can be on your way to start a life long habit of extreme self care!
Genuinely answer the question 'WHY' you want this change to take place? Write down your answers and refer back to it when you need to. This is the beginnings of setting a goal for yourself.
Do you want to get better health because you are packing on a few extra pounds, or maybe you a have been getting out of breathe when you walk a distance. Maybe you simply want to turn back a few years to feel younger and more vibrant? We all have different reasons to want better health. You may possibly have a whole list of reasons.
For me, my reason is for my first grandchild (who is on his way)! I want to embrace this well awaited journey with health, balance and a lot of energy plus to not look and feel like a grandma!
What is your reason? Remember it is not always about weight, though that is possibly a part of it, along with exercising, stretching and finding time to relax with some well needed R&R! It is simply feeling better health wise and being mindful of how you treat yourself! It is about having more energy, or possibly conquering depression and or anxiety. It is about living a higher quality of life for yourself and those who love you.
A healthier way of living is an ongoing need for everyone of us, so let's get started by asking ourselves and writing down the answers to these 6 questions. For me personally, I take notes on things like this in my phone!
(Example answers included)
*Also...If, or when you get off track health-wise, refer back to these 6 questions to get you started once again. Your answers and reasons may change in the future!
Get started A.S.A.P. with out procrastinating! Go to the grocery store to get WHAT you need. If you have decided to, get support from your family and let them know you have a change in the process. Plus, tell them not to judge or criticize you! Make your plans and get excited about it! *Seek consult of your physician if you deem necessary. Most importantly let your reason WHY- drive you through it!
I am here for you on this, please feel free to email me for support!
