I have been on a long long break from media and currently am still off Facebook and Instagram, but I am back on my website!! I would love for you to invite your friends to subscribe here to my site where I will be sharing workouts, recipes, food prep ideas, and videos on mindset and living a healthy life inside and out!!
So let's talk about our mindset for this month. With September come lots of changes with kids going back to school, new schedules, new sports, new activities, and a new season upon us. This is the Perfect time to say September is the NEW January. Many of us think wait till January to start new habits or make changes when really everyday can be a new fresh start to our lives. Every day is a gift from God so we should enjoy it and dive into new healthy habits. I'm not just talking about jumping into the gym and get on the latest fad diet. I'm talking about making some REAL changes that begin with our mindset. Here are 7 quick tips to get you thinking today about where you are in your mindset and help you to start making some changes.
1. Accept that your thinking needs adjusting
Look at how you approach goals and habits in your life. What areas have you succeeded and failed and how did you approach these struggles and victories.
2. Identify your counter-mindsets
Pay attention to what you say to yourself on a daily basis. Example listening to those voices that tell you "You cant do it. " "You'll never get there." "That's for someone else not me."
3. Flip the switch
When you hear those negative thoughts about yourself flip the switch. "My thighs are so big." Switch it to "My legs are so strong they help me lift heavy weights and go through my day."
4. Understand your “why”
Really identify your why. Your WHY is what gets you through. If it's not big enough you wont accomplish that goal.
Example: I want to lose this weight so I wont have to be on my diabetic medication.
5. Realize that motivation and willpower are not enough
It's about recognizing that achieving your goals isn’t about white-knuckling your way to success. When we accept this fact, we can stop mentally punishing ourselves for stumbling or failing to stick to our plan–which will leave us emotionally freer to optimistically try again tomorrow!
6. Start small so you can finish big
Pick one thing you are working on the top one on your list and set small goals that are achievable so you can be successful. Example: Instead of saying I will not eat any sugar or carbs for the next 60 days. How about I will plan out my meals and incorporate healthier foods to my diet and try to avoid high sugary and fatty foods.
Get comfortable with Failure.
We all fail. Over and over again. Know that you will fail and decide what you will do with it. Its how we learn. When you first ride a bike you fall until you keep practicing and get better. Same thing goes here for new habits. We are flawed humans yet we want perfection. Focus on all your victories that you are having along the way and be patient because results don't happen over night they take a long time.
Start with your mindset this September and share with me where you are on your journey. I hope this Blog helps you get started on creating a healthier mindset and lifestyle.
