In the last installment of The Reclamation, titled The Willpower and Motivation Myth, I went over why relying on willpower and motivation is unnecessary (and even harmful) to reaching your goals, and how to interrupt a Habit Loop.
So what if you're feeling motivated right now and you're ready to make some healthy lifestyle changes? I'm all for harnessing that energy to propel you forward, so long as you're not reliant on it.
Or, alternatively, what if you're not exactly motivated but you're going to start working toward better health anyway?
Either way, this is for you.
In today's Vlog I discuss 3 ways to avoid major stress and potential failure when trying to make healthy lifestyle changes. This is all about finally learning to get healthy the efficient way, using techniques proven to be effective through neuroscience. This is the opposite of giving yourself "tough love" in fact, it's the best way to lovingly see yourself through healthy changes.
Newsflash: You don't have to be miserable or beat yourself into submission when you're trying to get healthy. In fact, it's actually a fun experience for *almost all* of my health coaching clients.
Watch the latest video blog post, 3 ways to avoid major stress and potential failure when trying to make healthy lifestyle changes now and learn:
- Why resisting the urge to overhaul your entire routine, eating plan, etc is the most important thing you can do, even if you're fed-up-to-here with yourself.
- Why choosing to start with easy doesn't mean you're lazy; it means you're smart.
- Why micro-goals can actually help get you healthier, faster.
If you're dreaming about eating better, sleeping better, having more energy and less pain but struggle with doubting you have what it takes to get you there, watch this now.
