Create health goals that actually motivate and empower you
Have you ever wished you were more motivated to make healthy changes in your life? You may just need to look at your goals from a different angle to find what really resonates with you and motivates you to be consistent.
Here are 3 tips to creating goals that feel motivating and empowering:
1. Focus on how you want to FEEL.
Do you want to feel successful, strong, energetic, peaceful, resilient, secure? Focus on how you want to feel, rather than how you don’t want to feel.
2. Begin to recognize the tiny seeds of these feelings in your life right now.
When do you feel these feelings now? Take time to recognize and be thankful for these experiences. Write down or speak out loud 5 things you're grateful for every day.
3. Choose goals that are foundational to health and that have a ripple effect in multiple areas of your health.
These types of goals are what really transform your health!
Walking outdoors every day helps your body produce vitamin D from sunlight and serotonin from being in nature. The physical movement helps you feel more energetic, stronger and happier.
Adding grass-fed bone broth to your meals is soothing and nourishing to your gut, which strengthens your immune system, supports hormonal balance and can help decrease inflammation, skin issues and food sensitivities.
Doing a breathing practice every day helps physically, mentally and emotionally. Physically: can decrease blood pressure, stress hormones, improve digestion and support your immune system. Mentally: can help you focus more clearly. Emotionally: can help you feel calm, peaceful and able to handle stress better.
Avoid vegetable oils and refined sugar/flours. This helps reduce inflammation (cause issues related to gut, skin, hormones, immunity, weight, etc.). It can help you exercise more easily and effectively, improve your sleep and concentrate more clearly.
Health is not about any ONE thing you do, but about the WHOLE direction of your lifestyle. Create goals and plans that really resonate with how you want to feel and the person you want to become.
