I’ve got a GREAT mindset exercise that’ll help you set amazing new goals for 2022, and even more importantly…
Give you the power to reach those goals.

FACT: almost all of us have had New Year’s resolutions at one point or another … that we gave up on just a few short weeks later.

Want to know one of the main things that separate those who quit and those who don’t?

It’s engaging in regular REFLECTION along the way.

And a lot of people do it the wrong way.

True reflection is a PROCESS that helps you recognize what’s working … and what isn’t … by asking yourself specific questions.

Questions that can help take your life to the next level.

Reflection is NOT beating yourself up for what didn’t work.

Reflection IS taking time to think about the reasons why certain habits or actions “click” for you and why others are more of a struggle.

It’s stepping back to look at the big picture to see what is really required to set yourself up for success.

Here are 5 reflection questions to ask yourself over the next few days as we head toward 2022.

  1. How have you contributed to your happiness and health in 2021? 
  2. Where do you want to be a year from now? What is MOST important to you in 2022? (Top 3) Be specific!
    For each of your top three things, ask yourself:
  3. What specific things do you already do in your life that are moving you closer to what’s most important to you? (Do you want to continue doing them in 2022? Take them to the next level?)
  4. What specific things do you currently do that stall your progress or hold you back? Why do you believe you are taking these actions?
  5. What are 1-2 simple steps you can start taking NOW to make your vision a reality?

Another great question to ask yourself: “What would this look like if it was easy?”

If you get stuck, it helps to get an outside perspective.

This is where coaching comes in…because a great coach can help you make the process a lot easier and more direct.
They can eliminate the learning curve to find the fastest path to real results.

Here’s to a happy and healthy 2022!

Heads up, I’ve got some controversial news for you today – but hang with me!  “Moderation” is one of the biggest buzzwords in wellness right now.  But guess what? It doesn’t work …Because almost everyone does it wrong. The fact is, what looks like “moderation” to one person might be something completely different for someone else. For food, your definition of “moderate” can depend on what you grew up eating, your current eating habits, or even your mood.

Are you a stress eater? Or meal skipper?

Are you a stress eater? Or meal skipper?

If you’ve ever had a stressful day (or year!) that affected your eating habits, you are NOT alone. In a study, more than 75% of adults said that stress played a role in their eating during the past month. This included overeating, eating junk foods, or not eating. Many of them said it happened weekly. They also said it made them feel sluggish, lazy, disappointed in themselves, and/or irritable.

When you’re tired of feeling tired

When you’re tired of feeling tired

Have you ever been here before? Something sparked you to set a new fitness goal that you were REALLY excited about. Maybe you stepped on the scale after the holidays, had a big event coming up (reunion, wedding, vacation, etc.), were unhappy with the results from your latest doctor’s visit, watched an inspiring movie, were wowed by someone else’s transformation, or even had some kind of wake-up call…
