You can start today to make changes and turn your life around
🎇✨🎇 We all start the year thinking it’s time for change and we jump head-first into creating impossible resolutions for ourselves. We all see the gyms getting super busy at the beginning of January. 🏋🏽♀️🏋🏽♂️
🤳🏽💪🏽 Full of people with high hopes in terms of fitness goals. But if you’re not resilient. If you’re not the type to keep up with your ideas. And most importantly if you don’t like sports. Chances are you will not be anywhere near the gym past St Valentine’s day.
😓😨😰🥴 The last thing you need to start the year is to put pressure on yourself. Having goals is great, having a plan and support to achieve them is better. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. 🏃🏽♀️🏃🏽♂️
You need to treat it as such to make durable improvements. With everything going on in the world, you don’t have to add more reasons to be unhappy. 👉🏼 80% of new year’s resolutions fail.👈🏼 What a way to drown your self-confidence right at the beginning of the year.
If you have a goal and could use some support staying on track, I’m happy to help. Together we can create a goal that is achievable for you, the plan with all the little steps to reach your goals, and most importantly, I will be there, every step of the way to keep on track and motivated.
In the meantime, here are some habits you can start to create a positive change in your life:
1. Practice positive affirmations to up your inner dialogue
- I am smart
- I am beautiful
- I am strong
- I am capable
- I can do anything
2. Start journaling, it can be about anything:
- A dream journal
- Your intentions for the day
- Your plan to reach your goals
- Your deep thoughts etc…
The uses are endless. Make it your own and see how it helps you become more aware of so many things in your life.
3. Have a quiet lunch
Every day, I try to take the time to eat a full meal and relax. I understand it’s not always possible. But even when I was employed, I often chose to eat alone to avoid mealtime debates and think about something else than work.
4. Practice Gratitude
The best thing to become happier is to focus on what you have: I am grateful that I could hear a bird singing while waking up this morning I’m grateful I have a job a love so much etc …
- I am grateful that I could hear a bird singing while waking up this morning
- I’m grateful I have a job a love so much
- I’m grateful my partner cooked us a lovely dinner and I could just rest after work
5. Listen to Guided Meditations
I like to chill before bed by listening to a relaxing guided meditation. My own guided meditations are available on youtube:
Which one will you try first?
