So take my expert advice and follow my golden rule of baby steps to a BETTER you. When you take small and easy steps, it feels EASY. Easy is easy, and that’s something you could use in your life, right?
Raise your hand if you are ready for easy!
I guarantee taking small and easy steps will help you GET what you want, if you answer YES to the following 3 questions….
Do you set health goals and then abandon them 2 weeks later?
You want to make changes but feel overwhelmed by where to start and how to make those changes permanent?
Are you ready to feel healthy and confident in life and stop making excuses?
We make such lofty goals for ourselves and then feel guilty when we don’t live up to those ideals we set for ourselves. Instead of trying to change everything at once, take one small step each day to succeed at making those changes permanent.
Here’s a quick example, if you’d like to eat better perhaps your weekly goal would be to include a large salad with your lunch each day. Or perhaps drinking an extra 2 cups of water per day. You need to make the step so easy it almost seems silly. That way you set yourself up for success instead of failure, which will keep you motivated to continue onto your next small step to a healthier and more confident you.
Once you feel your small step has become a habit, then you can move on to your next small step. And so on and so on. Whether your health goal is to exercise 5 times a week or eat a balanced diet, sleep better, or have a better outlook on life, this applies to everyone.
Write down the #1 health goal that is the most important to you right now.
Here’s a health goal example – Exercise consistently. Now, set a weekly goal for that chosen step. For example, I will exercise 3 times a week for 30 minutes at home/gym. After following that step for the week, continue with that same step for 3 more weeks. After 4 weeks, once that becomes a habit, move onto the next health goal you want to focus on. Once you follow that step for 4 weeks, move on to your next goal.
Remember to be patient with your health goals and know that the slower you change the more successful you’ll be in keeping those changes a part of your lifestyle! Getting healthier and feeling better will feel like a positive and easy experience, which it is. Just keep your goals easy and make them fun! You’re going to feel better guaranteed, so there is no need to be fearful of it. And when you live healthy, you’re inspiring others around you to live healthier too, and that is powerful!
What ONE goal are you going to focus on?
