Have you heard the latest excuses?
Because things are “different” this year, some people are doing less.
Is that what you are “doing?” I hope not!
As your Health Coach, I’m suggesting you do MORE. Go for a healthier lifestyle than you’ve ever had before!
Don’t want to go out? Okay, do MORE activity at home.
Have more time? Good! Take more time to cook homemade meals and eat healthier!
Just as stated in the following article from January 2020, it all starts with your thoughts!
I want YOU to MAKE THIS a HEALTHY YEAR!
Understanding Resolutions vs Rituals
I wish everyone understood that resolutions don’t work, but the right thoughts, habits, rituals, and goals DO work! Your new goal must be owned in thoughts and language.
Words are Powerful Tools
Statements that begin with the pronoun “I” can be your secret weapon for success. Statements used when thinking or speaking are potentially your most powerful tools for living the life you desire.
Examine the differences in speech in the lists below:
Resolutions vs Rituals
I’m going to the gym twice a week
I try not to eat sugar anymore
I’ll go to bed on time
I will give up snacking after 7 PM
I go to the gym twice a week
I don’t eat sugar
I’m in bed by 10 PM
I don’t eat after 7 PM
What’s the Difference?
Resolutions are stated in the future, declaring what one intends to do, will do, is going to do, will try to do, or try not to do.
Ritual and habitual statements are already happening, declaring and owning who you are, what you DO and what you DON’T do.
The following phrases are almost magical. Listen carefully and correct yourself IN THE MOMENT.
- I am / I’m / I’m not
- I do / I don’t
- I go / I never go
- I always / I don’t ever / I never
- I (followed by any verb)
- I’m not a (adjective + noun)
- I won’t
- I can’t
Thoughts Precede and Control Actions
Can you discern which of the following statements help with healthy habits and which affirm the negative?
- I can’t get up early
- I’m creative in the morning
- I snack on sweets all day long
- I do a morning meditation
- I’m not a snacker
- I’m not a good sleeper
- I wish I were someone like that
- I want to do that
Allow your brain to use and hear it say healthy words. Notice and correct your thoughts throughout the day. Correct your statements as you speak and OWN your new habits and rituals.
I want YOU to live a long healthy life WITHOUT REGRETS!
