These three words are the words I hear the most when people are considering our program.
They need help with motivation, someone to hold them accountable and they desire more energy.
Motivation is tough, especially right now. Believe me, it is easy to keep doing what we are doing, get caught up in everything around us.
I get asked often how do you stay so positive.
I will be the first to admit, I have absolutely struggled to stay positive, but I make a choice every morning and that is to have hope.
I learned a long time ago that I get to control my emotions and reactions. Now it has taken me a minute to fully grasp this and I also realized I get to fill my head with what I want.
Reading books, listening to inspiring podcasts, or anything business related in my jam.
I have minimized my media exposure…now I don’t keep my head in the sand…but we could all benefit from a reduction.
It goes back to pruning…when the vine is dying, we prune it and new life forms. What do you need to prune in your life that will give you the ability to do more and be more?
Accountability is absolutely no surprise to me.
We all need accountability in our life. A coach, who has your back, wants to see you be successful. If left to our own vices…well…we know what happens.
I have had several coaches over the years, more from a business side and we still continue to have coaches who help guide us.
It is important to know you don’t have to walk the journey alone.
Then energy, we all want to feel better, perform more and simply feel good.
We took an already sedentary world and with working from home we have reduced our movement even more. (The exception is having a 2 and 4 year old…if you need to get your steps in or some cardio…come on over!)
The simple act of taking a walk, doing a 20 min workout can release good endorphins and can instantly boost your mood and level of energy.
Always sounds counterproductive, but we are meant to move, we need to move and we thrive off of movement.
I share these three items because this is what I hear day after day and I want you to know you are not alone.
Motivation right now is hard and that’s why having a structured program, an appointment with your self and a little money motivation (meaning you paid for that workout) can help you get going consistently.
Then I highly recommend a coach. A coach is going to help keep you safe, but guide you. Now all coaches are not created equal…it is important to interview and make sure you have a good fit, check out their testimonials.
Lastly, the best by product of getting active is Energy! You don’t need to guzzle energy drinks. You need to drink water, get 7+ hours of sleep and move.
Its easy to do and it is easy not to do!
