Healthy Mindset Challenge

Our mental perspective can make all the difference in how successful we are in life. We could all work harder and we could all use a little more self-love.

Here is the challenge: no scale, no mirror for 1 week. Identify other sources that contribute to your own perception of “image” and remove those from your life for one week. These things include Facebook, magazines, TV shows etc.

There are two elements that will replace what you are removing in your life: hard-work and self-love.

1. Hard work– give this week all you have. Use the time that you would usually use to say “I wish I was,” or “I am not” in a productive way. Listen to your body, listen to your heart and listen to your mind. Push hard in your workouts, go for a clean diet (use a food journal if need be) and make some time to set some goals. This is your week, don’t hold back!

2. Self-love– give yourself a compliment when you wake up, at lunch and after dinner. Give yourself a hug after a good workout. Post notes in your calendar or notebook to remind yourself about your strong qualities. Before you go to bed at night, think about 3 things that you are grateful for that day. Take time to give yourself love instead of being hard on yourself. This approach is way more enjoyable and productive.

At the end of the week, reflect to see what it felt like to work harder and to give yourself some love.  See what it does to your perception of other people.

Wishing you a week filled with love, health & happiness.

Hard Work Pays Off

“You will experience tremendous resistance (from yourself!) when trying to develop new habits that are good for you (such as training and [eating well] consistently). Warning: It’s not easy. Good habits are hard to form, but easy to live with. Bad habits are easy to form but hard to live with. Remember that successful people do things that unsuccessful people aren’t willing to do!” -john carter

Came across this quote today and I LOVE it. Couldn’t be more true. Hard work pays off in ways that you would never imagine if you did not put in the work in the first place. Be Bold. Be Daring. Challenge yourself. During this holiday season, take some time to evaluate where you are at and where you would like to be this time next year. Don’t wait for New Years, January 1st is no different than today or tomorrow.
