Can’t Achieve Your Health and Wellness Goal?
All of us have at least one goal as it relates to health and wellness. We usually even know exactly what we need to do to achieve the goal, but we just don’t do it. Well, why the not? One reason may be lack of structures for support.
Unfortunately, things don’t happen simply because we say we want them to – they happen when we start taking action.
You might want to lose weight and even know how to do it and yet your pantry might include chocolate chip cookies and potato chips. Maybe you even think that you have enough will power to simply avoid eating those things. Perhaps you say that you keep them in the pantry just in case the kids want them ( you really want your kids eating those things??)
Unfortunately, without any structures in place, you won’t be very successful in losing weight. Now, if you cleaned out your pantry closet and only stocked whole, nutritious foods, well, then you would have a structure in place for eating healthy. You could also place a bowl of fresh fruit on the kitchen counter or perhaps have a glass of water by your bedside every night and drink it before you even get out of bed in the morning. You wouldn’t have to rely on will power.
What if you wanted to add exercise to your life? First thing you might do is pencil some workout time in your calendar. Don’t have time?? Take another look at your commitments. Which ones are most important? Are you giving them the time you need.
Regardless of what your goal is, one key to success is putting structures in place!
Oh yeah — and of course working with a coach is an excellent structure ;D
