Do you feel confused by all of the contradictory health information you’re constantly being berated with? You certainly are not alone. Fads are always on the rise (and then the inevitable fall), but luckily, there are some sound, sure-fire ways to live a healthier life — no trends needed. In fact, ditch the fad and diet mindset once and for all. You don’t need them. Instead, focus on long-term lifestyle changes and implementing small changes over time to build up to your long-term goals. You will be much more likely to succeed this way, and it is much more enjoyable of a process.
When I was learning how to beat my Stage IV Cancer, without traditional protocols, the information became so overwhelming and confusing that it was a daily challenge to incorporate just one important step. My commitment to you is to always provide tips that will provide clarity and support your journey to your best self.
Extraordinary health is a journey, not a quick fix and certainly not a fad. It is the gift that keeps on giving!
Let’s visit some tips that you can start using today:
1. Map out your goals. When we live life without a plan, the days turn into years… and before we know it, we’ve been saying for the past five years that we wanted to start “blank.” What are the health goals you have for yourself? What is your reason for wanting to reach these goals? Focus on how you want to feel, and map out your goals from there. For example: if you want to feel happier — what changes do you need to make to achieve that? And what steps will you take to begin that process today?
2. Appreciate where you are right now. Learning to reverse any negative self-talk you engage in can be a long process, but daily practice will leave you with bountiful results. Appreciate where you are in your journey, even if you aren’t quite where you’d like to be. When you feel yourself beginning to engage in negative self-talk, stop it in its tracks. Treat yourself with kindness and respect, and start practicing turning the negative self-talk into something positive.
3. Do it for the right reasons. As you work towards your health goals, remember that you’re working towards a greater level of health, happiness and longevity. I have caught myself many times thinking “I need to start working out more, I have that beach trip next month.” While it’s not a bad thing that you want to look fantastic in that bikini, remembering that the hard work you put into your health is so that you can live a longer, happier and healthier life will keep you on track.
There are so many ways to work on your health journey, but starting with these three tips will get you on a solid track. Keep your eye on the prize and you will reach it!
Accountability is a major factor in achieving your goals, so having someone help guide you through this health journey is incredibly beneficial.
