January 2021 is a freakin’ hard time to be a human being. I figured we could all use a little support. This 5 min video ( with 5 steps below to follow) shows you how to keep moving forward with your goals AND how to quickly get back on track when you get knocked off by daily life.
(I made this on Friday Jan 8th for my Facebook community weekly tip. CLICK here to join the group and see past tip videos) Follow the 5 steps below. I will post a new video on Friday Jan 15th to keep us moving forward.
#1. Feel it First! Get crystal clear on how your goal will make you feel. The feeling of having that goal accomplished is what keeps you doing the work.
Ex: Not snacking after dinner makes me feel better the next day. I like what I see in the mirror + I have more energy and I feel proud of myself.
Right now, Write yours down. Put it where you will see it tomorrow.
#2. Know exactly what you need to do. To get to that feeling, what must you do daily?
Ex: For me to keep feeling better, I need to not eat after 7PM , 4 nights a week (I’m allowing myself an evening treat on Thursday and Saturday’s)
Write yours’ down
#3. What action must you put in place and when to make this happen?
My example: I will set an alarm for 6:50 and make sure I make some tea and get out of the kitchen.
#4. How often do you need to practice this?
My example = 4 nights a week (I don’t like feeling too regimented and don’t need to take myself too seriously)
#5. Be kind to yourself. This is the game changer. See my “Talk Better to myself practice” below Also check out this TED talk from Dr. Kristin Neff on the science of self compassion & what happens when we talk poorly to ourselves.
