In order to make a lasting change, we must set ourselves up for success. It means setting goals and dreaming big, without the presence of unrealistic expectations self-judgment if we fail. If there is a lot you want to change, any small step forward can seem overwhelming. Instead of holding yourself back, here are a few small changes you can make that will get the ball rolling on your health hourney.
1. VISUALIZE WHAT YOU WANT. Whether you create a fabulous vision board with pictures, notes etc. of everything you want in life or simply write down your goals for the next few months, visualization is key. Thoughts become things. The moment we start thinking about what we want, we take one step closer to where we should be.
2. ESTABLISH A MORNING ROUTINE. If we wake up without a purpose, we are more likely to procrastinate and get to things "when we get to it." How you start your day directly impacts how you carry yourself throughout the rest of the day. So, start strong. Wake up and do something right away for YOU and that makes you feel productive. It could be as simple as making your bed. It could be as complex as going for a workout and making yourself productive. Whatever it is, do it consistently and expect great results.
3. DRINK UP. We need water. Obviously. They say that you should be drinking half your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weight 150 pounds, you should be drinking 75 ounces of water a day. If you are like me and also drinking coffee daily, having an occasional glass of wine, and hitting up the hot yoga room, then you need more! We forget about how much water we need to drink until we start to feel tired, sluggish, or just overall BLAH. When you wake up first thing in the morning, chug a glass of room temp. water. You will be shocked and how it wakes you up AND makes you feel good.
