If you’re anything like me (and you probably are, or you wouldn’t be here), you’re often super-busy working on all the things. Work things. Life things. Even sometimes wellness things.
But there are times when the wellness & lifestyle things fall by the wayside.
Even the best planning strategies can fail. Why? Because it’s not the planner book, the Google calendar or the buddy system that isn’t working.
It’s your thoughts about them and why they’re not working that cause the big fail.
Remember, your thoughts control how you feel. And your feelings dictate your actions (or lack thereof).
This is the rule ALWAYS, ALWAYS…ALWAYS.
It’s the reason why you may have tried everything, and nothing’s worked. Or you achieved success, and then you backslid into former habits.
Nevertheless, we’re not here to focus on the past. Let’s keep it moving forward and create the change you want to see in your life and your health.
You can do this by using the power of NOW.
ONE Simple Way You Can Up Your Wellness Game By Using The Power of NOW.
Too often we plan so far ahead, we lose focus on what’s happening right here and now.
Do you ever feel like that? You’re probably a planner, and pretty good at it too.
You plan out your yearly goals in January (or even start in December). You break it all down into quarterly/monthly/weekly/ daily goals.
You’re a rockstar at how to get it all done. That is…for everything and everyone else.
But let’s get you into rockstar status for yourself, starting today.
It’s as simple as focusing on living in the present moment and limiting your thoughts of the past or future.
This doesn’t mean you chuck everything to the wind and become a nomad.
It means you become intentional with your plans and everyday focus only on the day at hand.
- You don’t dwell on past failures
- You don’t worry about what could happen tomorrow
You focus on doing everything you committed to doing TODAY.
Did you commit to walking 30 minutes after work? Keep that commitment to yourself.
Did you commit to preparing dinner for yourself, instead of getting takeout? Keep that commitment to yourself.
Did you commit to going to bed earlier so you can get a good night’s sleep. Keep that commitment to yourself.
When you focus on the day at hand, and keep your commitments to yourself (just as you keep those commitments to others, eh-hem…), you get the results you want.
You don’t get results by wishing. You get them by doing. The more you do for yourself, the more your confidence grows. And your level of commitment grows, too!
So there you have it. The ONE simple thing that’ll up your wellness game and keep you moving forward: Focus on the NOW and keep your commitments to yourself.
Okay, that’s 2 things. But consider the 2nd one a bonus. 🙂
Subtle truth: It’s not always easy keeping your commitments to yourself, especially when you have so much on your plate, you just can’t see how to “fit it all in”. Let me give you a taste of the power of NOW. CLICK HERE for a free mini session with me and I’ll show you how.
