What's your mindset?

When it comes to making changes in our life, it takes consistency, repetition and confirmation. Before we start anywhere, we've got to check in with our mindset. Mindset is defined as mental attitude or inclination. Before you begin a new exercise, nutrition or self care program, sit with yourself and think about what it is you really want.

Write it down and be specific.

I promise you that if you have a more specific goal, and you take time to identify why you want to achieve that goal, you'll increase your chances of reaching it.

Perhaps your goal is to lose weight. Think about how your life will be different. You'll have more self confidence, you may be able to reduce medications and you'll like the way you look in your favorite jeans. You'll move more easily. It's not about losing weight, it's about improving your quality of life. Weight loss is the way to get you what you really desire, better health, easier movement, more self confidence, less worry and peace of mind.

Breaking out of unhealthy habits is tough! You'll need to have a picture in your mind of what you want to accomplish. It's got to be crystal clear. We hear people use the term manifest. Manifesting works but only when you visualize your dream, your desire or your goal and then do the work that gets you where you want to be.

Example: Instead of saying "I want to lose weight," think of what losing weight will do to improve your life. Write down your ultimate goals which may be improved health, ease of movement or wearing your clothes well.

Now you have a plan for consistency. Keep that end result as clear. Type it up and hang it everywhere. Make it your screen saver. Visualize it and stay committed.

Next is repetition. Practice healthful habits over and over again. This is where it gets tough. Take one or two specific habits that you want to change and work on those. Repeat them each day. Have notes pop up on your calendar every day at a specific time to remind you what you need to do to reach your goal. When these habits become part of your regular routine, add another. You get the picture.

As you stick with the repetition, you are going to start feeling results.

You may start to feel less bloated.

Your mood is improving.

You have more energy.

Your friend asks if you've lost weight.

All of these are confirmations that what you're doing is working. This triggers your brain's reward center. And now you are associating all the work you're putting in with a good feeling. This is how habits are formed and stick. Just repeat the process over and over again and you can do anything!
