Happy Tuesday! The world has always been full of turmoil since the beginning of time, but it sure feels even more out of whack right now. Real people are going through real tough times filled with uncertainty, stress, and fear. That being said, your health has never been more important than it is right now. As the world enters “recovery mode” from the pandemic, it’s the optimal time to ask yourself why you want to be healthier so that your path to success can be clearer with more intention and focus.
So, did you get an alarming diagnosis from your doctor recently? Did you see the number on your scale go up? Did you get lab results that were disturbing? Did you notice that your clothes feel tight lately? Do you feel exhausted and zapped of energy? Basically, knowing why you want to be healthier leads you to a clearer goal. Being specific with goal setting brings better results.
When you know the purpose of your goal, it is easier to set your action steps in a reasonable way so that you keep your eyes on the prize through a realistic lens. For example, if your lab results indicated that you are overweight, a good goal would be to shed enough weight to put you into the “normal” weight range. Your purpose would be to reach a weight that is healthier for your body. Then, you can set a reasonable amount of weight to lose in a reasonable amount of time. This is where the guidance of a health coach comes in handy and gives you accountability! I love helping people get the results that they want!
Whatever your purpose is for improving your health, do it with intention and get started sooner than later by doing one small step at a time. This will help you to avoid overwhelming yourself with too much too fast. I challenge you to give it a try this week! If you need encouragement, reach out to me and we can get started on our journey together! It always helps to have someone encouraging you along the way! That’s what I do and I love it!
You’ve got this!
