Tips On How To Change Your Life.

You will not change your life until you change your habits. Most of our lives, we are told what we can’t do. So we become what we believe. If you believe you are out of self-control, then you will act out of self-control. What most of us try to do is change our behavior not realizing these behaviors must be unlearned. Some of these habits result in unhealthy behavior.

For example,

1. we don’t stop drinking.

2. we still smoke.

3. we don’t lose weight.

4. we still watch too much television.

5. we still don’t floss.

6. and so forth.

 

What we have to do instead is get to the root of our own unhealthy thinking. Learn how to speak truth into areas where you struggle. The negative emotions that we experience are a good indicator of what we say. What we need to do is adopt a healthy attitude. Life would be great if we took better care of our minds, bodies, and spirits.

How To Get Uncomfortable To Change Your Life.

Most decisions that change your life should make you uncomfortable. If you want to have leaps in your life, you have to get uncomfortable. When you get uncomfortable, identify your fear. What is it that you’re afraid of? Any person that did anything amazing in their life got very uncomfortable before they did it. For example, you exercise regularly but skip the cardio routines because it’s too hard or makes you breathless. If you want to do things you cannot see possible, you have to be hungry for transformation. If you always do what you’ve always done, you always get what you always got. For change to happen, you gotta get uncomfortable. That’s how you change your life.

 

How To Change Your Life with Nutrition and Fitness.

How do you come to the decision to change your life through nutrition and fitness? Is it because you are tired and lack energy? Could it be that the doctor wrote you a prescription for high blood pressure or high cholesterol medication? Are you just not able to keep up with your kids or could it be you just don’t like how you look or feel?

Whatever the reason, you have to come to a crossroads and find the motivation to change your life. I have some ideas to help you move on that path. Let me share my story so you understand what I went through, how I struggled and what helped me.

I always considered myself an active person; but when I went to college, the stress of getting good grades took me off focus and into survival mode. I ate whatever I could put my hands on those late night study sessions. Before I knew it, I became a graduating “big fella”. I was overweight, my blood pressure went haywire, my doctors scolded me, my friends jumped down my throat… I could not do my job, and I wanted to give up. My butt was dragging… When I looked in that mirror, I did not like what I saw. Looking back, I realized these three initial steps helped me start the right way.

 

Here’s what you do:

1. Get a physical.

2. Change your attitude.

3. Partner Up.

4. Write it all down.

 

Habits are hard to break, that’s why developing good habits is worth the struggle. If you can give yourself three weeks, these new habits can become routine. Create or start a “Change Your Life Challenge” and commit to it for 30 days.

  1. Wendy & Mike, We commend your work and efforts to reshape (literally) America’s views on health, fitness, and well being. Our philosophy is we are what we eat and we are not what we don’t eat. There is a lot of information “out there,” to include a boatload of eating plans, aka diets. There is something for everyone but everything doesn’t work for every b-o-d-y. Our challenge to all Americans is to find what works for your b-o-d-y and nurture it. If you do so, it will nurture you in return. Keep up the good work and we’ll check in periodically to see how well the Nation is catching on.
