Focus on the Change
Happy Motivation Monday!
I’ve been talking to my Spring Reset group about change. When we make up our minds to change and then focus on the results (or lack thereof), we are often left feeling discouraged. Either we want to lose 20 pounds and we feel like a failure because we’ve only lost 15, or we want to start exercising and we make a commitment to exercise every.single.day … only to feel defeated when we take a (likely much-needed!) rest day on the fourth day in.

The end result is definitely important, and I like to have the end result in mind when I’m setting a major goal. However, on a day-to-day basis, I recommend focusing on celebrating each individual change rather than worrying that we haven’t yet reached the end result.
So today, I’d like you to focus on making one healthy change. I’ve talked about the power of one change before, and I’ll talk about it again because it’s so powerful. When I work with Health Coaching clients, we often set just one goal for the week or two between meetings, and celebrate the success of that individual change as we’re working up to the client’s larger goal. I do this because, quite simply, it works! (picture source)
This week, one of the small things I’m going to focus on is prioritizing sleep (so important, even if you’re busy!). It’s another of our Reset goals, and one of the healthiest habits I need to work on most!
So tell me in the comments … What one change are YOU going to focus on today?
