It's Spring Time!
It's Spring and time for new life and health. The end of the year is approaching and we need to have energy for the last push and to handle the demands of the year end rush. We need our health and energy to back us. We need to feel that our vitality is a resource we can count on. Here are 10 thoughts that will help you as you take a step forward on the journey of getting your health goals into front of mind and getting closer to manifesting the goals you have set for yourself. or maybe you haven’t set any goals yet, you are still putting that off for tomorrow? If so, this newsletter will help you get out of the thinking stage and into action stage.
1. Remember thinking doesn’t help! You have to take action. You need to set intentions, but your actions have to match your intentions.
2. Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally, it comes from what you do consistently. Fitness, strength, flexibility, leanness,vitality are created through consistency. Consistency is king! Consistent wise food choices, consistent choice to exercise, consistent choice to get enough sleep, consistent choice to do what you say you will do.
3. You need to build credibility and trust with yourself by doing what you say you will do. If you say you will have only one coffee a day, hold yourself accountable to that. If you say you will exercise four times a week, then do just that. If you don’t, you lose trust in yourself.
4. Make exercise fun. Do what you love and love what you do. If it’s a chore, it's not so easy to keep on doing it. Get a friend in on the project and do it together. Pull each other along.
5. Eat less “white trash”. Whatever you are eating of this food variety, cut it in half. Be moderate so it's sustainable. If you have a sweet tooth, have half the sugar and cake and bread you would normally have. (Sorry to our Jewish clients who are about to start their Yontif celebrations)
6. Chew your food more and don’t prepare the next mouthful until you have swallowed the last one. This will help you slow down and therefore eat less.
7. Sleep more. When you are tired, it's impossible to eat well and it's a million times harder to exercise.
8. Schedule your exercise sessions as meetings. They are set in steel, they are not removable for other demands.
9. Drink 8 glasses of water a day! More water produces better health! When you are dehydrated, you feel low energy!
10. Let go of anything you are carrying that you don’t need anymore: past anger and resentment, regrets and disappointments. This is the moment that counts! This will make you lighter and freer.
Have a wonderful Spring weekend and may all our Jewish clients and patients have an awesome, sweet and health filled new year!
