Here we are again, “new year, new you” right?
🤷🏼♀️BUT, why tho? There is NOTHING wrong with the old you.
‼️This is often a marketing tactic for the newest cleanse or the diet that “is a lifestyle” but instead of 💩💩ing on that, let’s talk about the core at all of this targeted marketing-
➡️So, let’s shift the focus back there. I mean, if everyone else is so focused on what you should be doing, why not have you focus on what you ARE and WILL BE doing. What does 2023 “you” look like?
💜I encourage you to take a different approach this year in how you shape your goal list and focus on things that can improve how YOU feel about yourself. For me, I want to feel:
✅More in the know both in my practice AND life
✅Stronger in body and mind
✅Creative in more aspects of my life
Next step is to list steps to how I can feel that way. So for me, that looks like:
✅Reading 3-4 studies per week (www.ScienceDaily.com is a good place to start, if you want to increase your nutrition knowledge as well!)
✅Balancing weight training/running 4-5d/wk with set rest & “restore” days to allow for creative projects or meditation/rest
✅Trying 2 recipes a month
Also, make sure to keep the kindness in this list, and allow yourself some flexibility if it doesn’t go perfectly some weeks- it's ok. We are forever a work in progress in that our biggest fan & competitor is ourselves. We don’t lack “willpower” or “discipline”- we are just people that have 💩 that gets in the way sometimes.
So, be kind & take those steps one at a time. And if it's not feeling like a good time to set new goals, that’s also totally fine.
It's time we claim the care we deserve💕
💜Let’s start the new year with a happy heart💜
