I’ve finally cracked the code. The why you’re stuck in a rut code. You know what I’m talking about — that ongoing “blah” feeling where your fizz and your juju have taken a permanent hiatus.
The reason for feeling this way is not what you may think — it’s not your dead-end job or your caffeine addiction or even those extra 10 pounds. What it really comes down to is this:
You set lofty goals like losing 10 pounds in 1 month or starting to exercise 5-6 days per week and you are convinced that if you can just get “MOTIVATED” enough to go from zero to 100 real quick, you’ll master this eat and exercise game.
In today’s world, we get non-stop chatter from every possible angle: TV screens, billboards, radio, magazines, celebrities, the Internet (including noise from our parents, partners and friends). All these different voices are constantly chewing our ear off about how we should look, feel, live, dress, eat, move and play. We are bombarded with messages about how we’re supposed to have our life together.
BUT SIS, WHAT DOES YOUR TRUE SELF SAY?
In order to step into your big, beautiful life it is essential to be completely, 100-percent you. Your needs. Your truth. Your voice.
I talk to women every day who tell me “It’s been a struggle. I’m in a slump. I need to be using my free time better. Working from home and tending to kids 24/7 has me frustrated and exhausted. I am getting so lazy and I have to get motivated again. I just don’t know how to begin or where to start. UGH.”
It STARTS with SMALL Steps.
When you break down those BIG LOFTY goals into daily smaller self-care tasks, you’ll create a positive momentum and then SOON, a little trickle of inspiration will come. AND THEN it’ll BUILD UP with more trickles and before you know it, you have a strong foundation of healthy sustainable wellness habits.
Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.
