When working towards your health goals, or ANY goal for that matter, it’s essential to keep in mind your WHY.
Why do you want to lose weight/get in shape? Why do you want body confidence? Why does it matter what you eat for lunch?
As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I am all about creating a compelling why that instantly connects you to your purpose on the planet.
So instead of “I’m going to the gym so I can lose weight” we work with “I’m going to the gym so I can have more energy for my family.” Or “I want to feel confident in my body so I can be fully present for my on-camera job.” Or “I want to change my lunch routine to set an example for my at-risk father.”
Creating a personal, compelling why also keeps you from getting caught up in “health” trends and the neuroses of the moment and encourages you to make choices based on your own instincts and intuition that make sense for you and your life. Ditch reading up on the latest studies and instead study yourself.
All of a sudden chopping your greens to pack for lunch takes on a whole new meaning, elevated from another item on the to-do list to an intentional act of devoted self-care. Deepak Chopra says, “Attention and intention are the mechanics of manifestation.” Link your behaviors to your why to maximize the results that matter to you the most.
Big love and happy holidays,
