Happy Motivation Monday! Today, I bring you Part 2 of my client testimonials, in another less-than-2-minute video! (If you missed Part 1 on Thursday, you’ll find it here!) Hear the biggest changes in a few of my clients’ minds and bodies since they began working with me as a Health Coach, and then let’s talk about how to make YOUR health a positive experience, rather than a relentless burden.
If you’ve always thought of your health as something stressful that you had to control (or that controlled you!), shifting your mindset to make it a positive experience may be challenging at first. However, I encourage you to take steps toward positivity in any way you can – you’ll feel a weight lifted off of your shoulders, and likely experience better results, as well.
You can start by celebrating each success. Regardless of how far your ultimate goal seems, celebrate when you complete a workout, eat a healthy meal, drink plenty of water during the day, or reach another short-term goal. You can even celebrate the fact that you’re mentally ready to take on the challenge of improving your health – that’s a huge commitment to make! You can read more about this concept here.
In addition, start focusing on your health as a gift, and being grateful for the health that you DO have, rather than focusing on what you’re striving to achieve. Maybe you need to lose a significant amount of weight, but you can still be grateful for the fact that you wake up each morning, are able to move throughout your day, and have the physical capability to exercise. Regardless of where you currently are on your journey, there’s always something to be grateful for. (picture source)
Of course, if you need help shifting your perspective and making your health journey a positive one rather than a relentless burden, I’d always love to talk to you about my Health Coaching programs. See this page for more information, and to sign up for your initial health consultation!
**It should go without saying that I did not script this video, tell my clients what to say, or encourage them to be anything but truthful. I did not know any of these clients before they hired me, and did not compensate them for participating in this!**
So tell me in the comments … What do you do to make your health a positive experience?
