Congratulations! You’ve taken a wonderful first step toward a healthy lifestyle: You have DECIDED or recommitted to live healthier!
Success is something you decide ahead of time.
But let’s face it. We’ve all been here before. We decide to make changes, eat better, get to the gym, and something happens. We get sick, or our day gets so busy we miss our workout, or a meeting gets scheduled during lunch and all of a sudden we’re starving and the only option is the vending machine or fast food restaurant on the corner. And just like that, our healthy lifestyle is derailed. Again.
As a health and wellness coach, I speak with women all the time just like you and me, who have good intentions, but somehow either sabotage themselves or get sidetracked as life – and the people in it – have a different agenda.
When we embark on a healthy lifestyle, sometimes we skip the most important step: preparing our mind. Think of our mind as another muscle that we train.
The body achieves what the mind believes.
Our thoughts, actions, beliefs, and results are all intertwined around a healthy mindset. Here are some of my top tips for preparing your mind for a healthy lifestyle.
