Do you take time to reflect and plan on your life? Many of us do that at the beginning of the year, but why wait? Take time now. Go ahead, schedule it on your calendar right now.
It is important to look back and see what is working and what isn’t working. However, do not dwell on the ‘not so good’. Take what you can from those things and move forward.
I would suggest developing and writing down your priorities that you develop based on this reflection time. You may want to read Schedule Your Priorities or They Aren’t Priorities? Take a look at all areas of your life. Know what your priorities are and then make a plan of action by scheduling those priorities into your day.
Let’s talk about your Health. Stop thinking you are going to do healthy things in order to lose weight. Studies show that isn’t motivating enough. For a good read on the studies you may want to read, No Sweat: How the Simple Science of Motivation Can Bring You a Lifetime of Fitness by Michelle Segar, Ph. D. A better reason is you want to live a healthy life or you are a healthy person.
In order to get to the point where health is a part of your mindset, you may want to create a mantra or several mantras to say each day. Repeating mantras helps you internalize your priorities and values.
