Have you ever said to yourself … “I know WHAT I need to do. So WHY can’t I get myself to do it?” Well … you’re not alone. And you’re also in luck because this month we’re going to take a deep dive into all things MINDSET.
Because if you KNOW what you need to do … it might just be your mindset getting in the way.
It plays a powerful role in your MOTIVATION, your CHOICES, and even your HAPPINESS.
And being mindful has a lot to do with your mindset.
“Mindfulness” sounds like one of those “woo-woo” terms that can mean pretty much anything you want it to. But science shows it can actually:
Boost your results with your workouts,
Make it easier to make healthy food choices,
Improve your day-to-day feeling of contentment, and even
Play a role in your long-term health.
And you know what?
For my clients, one of the biggest benefits they tell me about is that they finally stop “going through the motions” of what they think they SHOULD do.
It takes a little practice, but wow is it worth it. They experience a whole new level of fulfillment – and now they actually WANT to stick to their program …instead of continuing to yo-yo their way through life.
This is a big reason why our clients get such impressive results.
So what actually IS mindfulness?
In a nutshell, it’s when you’re present and in the driver’s seat for your own life.
Too often we’re in “auto-pilot” mode and let our habits run our life.
It’s the fastest way to stay “stuck” or even go backward.
That’s why I’m excited to dive in and share a few of the actionable strategies we teach our clients on how you can apply mindfulness into your OWN life to achieve goals … that actually LAST.
It’s a special time of year with celebrations, traditions, and festivities galore….Which is awesome. BUT … there’s something not-so-awesome, too. It’s all those sneaky saboteurs that come out during the holidays. They can set you back in a BIG WAY from reaching your goals.
You know I am a big believer in being “in the moment,” right? It’s huge for helping you relieve stress, focus on what’s important, and get the most out of every day. But … I HAVE AN IMPORTANT EXCEPTION. And it has to do with something I hear every. single. year from my clients.
You probably already know that not getting enough sleep can affect your mood, appetite, focus, productivity, performance, health, and even your waistline. But get this… Mindfulness meditation has been shown to cut the wake time of people suffering from insomnia by up to 50%.
I don’t know about you, but I want to be that 80-year-old busting out sweet moves on the dance floor at a wedding. What do YOU want to be able to do when you’re 60, 70, 80, and beyond?
