Daily Health Tip
We at GetFitFaster.ca are calling February,
“LOVE YOUR BODY” month!
You only get one body for life so it is your responsibility to treat it right! Love your body and invest and decide to make changes in your lifestyle to produce the changes you want in your physical body. Your mind works in tandem with your body. Realize that wrong thoughts affect and hinder your success and progress so decide to do away with self -loathing, wrong thinking and negative speaking. Meditate on positive phrases. Write them down, put them up on your refrigerator and mirror and push back your discomfort and speak them out loud. With consistency and over a period of time, you will be amazed at the changes as a result. I.E. “I am beautiful, smart and capable of overcoming all challenges that I am facing.”
Consider what you do; you are either investing or gambling with your health. Strive for balance and stay in peace and make right choices.
GET STARTED – It is the beginning of a new month. What do you want to accomplish by Valentine’s Day? You have two weeks; make your time count! Smaller deadlines can help you maintain greater focus! Get specific and write it down. Statistics prove that writing down your goals and keeping them before your eyes makes a substantial difference! Having clearly defined goals, in fact, increases your chances for success by 98%!
Get grateful and list 3 things you love about your body. List the one thing you want to change most.
SET A PLAN OF ACTION:
What is truly standing in your way to reach your goal?
What are your personal pitfalls? (pushing snooze in the morning, eating out too often, night out with the gals or guys, etc.)
How can you improve and overcome the above?
What will you have accomplished in overcoming obstacles?
DON’T TRY TO CHANGE EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE! one item at a time and keep chipping away at your pitfalls. Too many changes at one time can lead to frustration, discouragement, and wanting to throw in the towel. Set time aside to make assessments every two weeks, journal and evaluate. Take it slow and remember that slow and steady wins the race! This is not a sprint, but rather, a lifelong journey. Making slow changes help to ensure that they will stick and that are realistic to your season and lifestyle.
