BRING YOUR HEALTHY LIFE INTO VISION

When we think about health and fitness, our first thoughts pretty much divert to working out, being active and fueling up with the right nutrition. These aspects ARE the foundations, but underpinning all of this is having a compelling vision and powerful mindset.

We so often underestimate the power of our minds and our vision. I’m not talking about our eyesight, rather having a clear mental image of what it is that you want to achieve.

“I'll believe it when I see it” most people say. But in actual fact, ‘you see it when you believe it.’ Visualisation and mental imagery work, which is why we see and hear of so many success stories starting out with a compelling powerful vision. We only need to look to high achieving athletes and business women and men to see the results.

The best part about creating a powerful compelling vision is that anyone can do it and it is a fun and creative process.

Here are are my secrets to ensuring your health vision comes to life -

  • Set time aside to think about what you really want your life to look like in the area of health and fitness.
  • Write down how you SEE yourself and how you FEEL at your peak health and fitness state.
  • Write down WHY you want to look and feel this way. (This is most important - keep asking yourself questions about WHY you want this.)
  • With This information get creative write a vision statement including the points above.
  • Create a vision board so you can actually see what your vision looks like. -Grab some old magazines and cut out images that you feel drawn too. -Collect images from publications you see throughout your day.
  • Read your vision statement and look at your vision board every day and bring on the feelings you noted above.

The more we can see and feel what we want, the more we will start moving towards this. Keep connecting in with why you want what you want as this will drive you to maintain your exercise routine and healthy nutrition.

Finally, don't hold back with your vision, we can do anything if we really put our minds to it. Think BIG get creative and you just surprise yourself!

7 STEPS TO SNAP OUT OF YOUR FUNK!

Do you ever find yourself making excuses for why you can’t do that workout, stretch session, meditation, adventure or just take that next step toward that wild and crazy goal you set for yourself?

Suddenly the sleep in, the comfy couch or the easy road out seems like a far better option.

You lack motivation and for whatever reason you struggle to bust through!

We are all familiar with that feeling. These are the little speed bumps set up in our minds that challenge us towards our goals. Here are a few practical steps to help you overcome these mini motivational lapses, get our of your own way and on the path to success.

THE 7 STEPS

  1. Become aware of why you feel stuck. Are you tired? Feeling lazy? Paying too much attention to your inner critic? Why do you feel this way? Identify it, write it down or give it a name if it helps.

  2. Allow yourself to feel this way. Now that you have identified why you feel like you do allow yourself to sit with that feeling or emotion. Give yourself a time limit 5min - 15min to let yourself be in this state.

  3. Change your state. If you can’t get into action right away, change your state. Get moving, go for a walk, get in nature, visit a friend at the very least change your environment. It’s important to move past the ‘stuck’ feelings and create new ones for yourself.

  4. Connect with your greater goal or reason why you want what you want. What is it that you ultimately want from the workout, stretch meditation or crazy goal? Think about why you set out to do this in the first place.

  5. Set yourself a deadline and stick to it. Make an appointment with yourself and keep it like you would any other appointment or a catch up with a friend.

  6. Just do it! Getting into action is the most powerful thing you can do. There is no time for excuses as our minds are now occupied by the present moment and what we need to do.

  7. Celebrate your win. Recognise the hurdle you just overcame. So often our minds hold us back more than we realise. Celebrate your small win and notice how it made you feel. Remember this for next time you feel in a funk.

The quicker you can master step one, the faster you will be creating new habits for yourself to attain what it is you really want. So get out of your own way and achieve your goals. You owe it to yourself!
