3 Simple Ways To Stay Committed To Living Your Best Life in 2020
It’s a new decade (wow, excuse me, whaaat??), a new year, and OMG a brand new you, too?!
The new year is such an empowering time. People are into their health and wellness goals, feeling hopeful, have had a lovely festive time and then...what happens again…?
Oh, yeah. Life happens. So how can you stay committed to living your best life, even in spite of, ya know, normal life things happening all around you? Here are some tips that I have long advised patients, clients, and students on to guide them to successful habit shifting and killer, killer results on their journey.
Sustainability = Success
Regardless of your best intentions, it's really hard to go from 0 to 100 real, real quick. If yoga, working out, and mobility training are new to you, that’s okay! But, be sure you are setting a reasonable goal for yourself.
Life is already a lot to handle. So many random struggles and annoying things -- Can I get an AMEN? You really do not need to make your life harder. This is why I have structured my courses and free videos with a realistic progression to help you build new habits that you can easily stick with. Not diving in with an hour per day, every day. That’s too much (and honestly, who has the time?!)
You want to think in terms of what is sustainable for you, your life, and your schedule, not make a plan around what sounds good in theory, but will actually make your life difficult.
Truthfully, your body really does need rest. If you tucker yourself out and exhaust yourself doing 3-hours workouts every day for two weeks you are going to:
A) hurt yourself and
B) need a full week to recover from that crazy “training.”
This is not a healthy option, nor is it sustainable. Make sure that you are resting and recharging, especially if you are working out and activating new muscles. We do not need to go hard every day of the week.
Just Keep Moving
No matter what your health and wellness goals are if you want to improve your comfort, quality of life, range of motion, and mobility you need to keep moving. Even if you’re not doing a full workout every day, you can always do something quick like this Heart Reset Flow to keep your joints and muscles from getting stiff or cramped.
Desk jobs, long commutes, and more may be keeping you somewhat immobile, but you want mobility and decreased tension so do the grapevine in the hallway, moonwalk to the water cooler, get creative!
Do whatever it takes to keep active and move a little more each and every day. Soon, it will be habitual to make sure your body is grooving daily.
If one of your goals this years is to get more fit, more flexible, and start eating better then I've got something perfect for you...
