Set Your Mind
Make it happen.
There are many ways I teach my clients strategies to stay focused on their goals.
Here are 4 of my favorite ways:
Vision Boards. Happiness and success is having dreams, and then making those dreams come true. Visualizing your dreams helps to make it reality. Making dream boards or vision boards is one of my favorite activities to do with clients, family, and friends.
Food Journal. Having a food journal is a great way to keep a record of your efforts and figuring out what works and what does not. You also get a reality check about how much food you have consumed. It is as much about being honest and accountable to yourself as it is to what foods you really ate.
Practice Gratitude. Devote one time a day to gratitude. Every day write down 3 things you are grateful for. Trust me it really works to help you think more positively. This helps dreams come true. When you are grateful, you feel more confident.
“When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” -Lao Tzu
Movement. Adding exercise to your routine can feel overwhelming if you try to jump in too fast. Nobody is telling you that you need to join a gym and engage in rigorous workouts if that’s not your style. You’ll actually be surprised at how energized you can feel just by taking 30 minute walks using a jump rope or dancing like nobody is watching to your favorite song .
If you spend your time thinking about how overweight you are, how much you dislike yourself and how deprived you feel by your current diet, then you will magnify those miserable feelings.
Learn to love and appreciate yourself. Take care of your body.
Love yourself through self-acceptance, forgiveness and good self-esteem.
Love who you are.
