Last week I posted about jumping off the health/fitness/weight loss/etc. rollercoaster and finding a plan that works for YOU and your life!
Doesn’t it just feel good when you get into a groove that you can actually stick with? (If you haven’t yet, hang with me, I’ve got a helpful tip for you below.)
It’s a little mindset/organizing hack …
And it’s something to think about when you get sidetracked, overwhelmed, or aren’t sure what to do next.
It’s to always circle back to the 4 simple pillars of wellness – and to do what works for YOU for each of them.
Your 4 Pillars of Fitness & Wellness:
- Healthy nutrition
- Regular exercise
- Relaxation (including mindset work) & Rest
When you make time for these 4 pillars – and are INTENTIONAL and CONSISTENT with them – you feel SO MUCH BETTER.
You have more energy, your mood is better, and you’ll probably have fewer aches & pains. Things just feel easier.
Which can make it even more doable for you to stick with your healthy habits.
I know that when I don’t pay attention to my 4 pillars, I can’t wait to get back to them because it makes such a big difference in how I feel and function.
Want an action plan to help you stick with your own pillars?
Here’s a little assignment: come up with 2-3 core actions for each of YOUR pillars, that always help you feel great. Write them down so you always have a plan in case you find yourself a little off track.
At Fitness Lifestyle Personal Training, we believe your wellness is more than just your fitness routine…

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.
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.
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…
Most of the time in my emails I try not to talk about the crazy roller coaster ride we’ve been on over the past couple of years. I mean, I’m more than ready to move onward and upward! Aren’t you? But there’s a super important lesson we have all learned. It’s about how much we need COMMUNITY … CONNECTION … and SOCIAL SUPPORT.
