The Secret Sauce...

The secret sauce to habit change... There is incredible power in your daily habits. Your habits quite literally mold your body, your health and your accomplishments in life. And it turns out that there’s a special secret sauce to making new habits stick that I’d like to share with you today… This secret sauce goes against our instincts and the way that we are wired, which is why so many of us fail to make healthy, new habits truly stick and become part of our ongoing routine. It’s more natural for us to take on the role of a critic with ourselves than that of a cheerleader. We often compare ourselves to others and focus on our flaws rather than pausing to celebrate our wins and really feeling good. This works against us because it has been proven that... Emotions create habits, and that the positive emotion of FEELING GOOD is the BEST WAY to get a new habit to stick! Now, if you’re anything like me, then the idea of celebrating tiny little wins is a bit uncomfortable. I’ll feel good about myself when I do something substantial, you may think. However, by training yourself to truly FEEL GOOD about each and every little step that you take in the right direction, you’re more likely to keep on making progress. It’s time to tell your inner critic to take a hike! All those times that you wallowed in feeling bad actually made it more difficult to make positive progress toward your goals. Once you experience the power of feeling good, train yourself to enjoy and celebrate all of the healthy new behaviors that will ultimately lead you to your goals. Do I have your agreement to try out the secret sauce of feeling good? Here's how to start the process: When you wake up and drink your healthy protein shake, pause and give yourself a mental pat on the back. FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT! Really, actually, FEEL GOOD. Allow yourself to experience the emotions of happiness, pride, confidence and all of those great emotions that feel so good. Now, do the same thing after your workout, when you drink your water, when you grab the apple instead of the candy bar... keep practicing the FEELING GOOD after every healthy habit. It may take some practice, but with time you’ll look forward to feeling good after practicing each healthy behavior. And then, eventually, it will become second nature and you'll do it automatically! You'll also notice how you are reaching your goals, step by healthy step. If you aren’t yet one of my prized clients, then please reach out to me.
