First of all: HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! I hope you do something GREAT for your heart today.
Go for a walk, give someone you love a hug, breathe in the fresh air – anything that makes your heart happy.
I’ve got a weird tip today to help you make every day a great day … and set your mindset up for success.
I actually gave this challenge to a few of my clients, and this ONE small thing helped them build confidence and stay on track with their goals.
Here it is. (I’m going to tell you why it works below.)
→ Start AND end each day with 10 reps of your favorite exercise. (Could be squats, push-ups … you name it!)
→ Start AND end each day by writing down what you’re grateful for.
→ Start each by writing down your intention for the day … AND end that day by reflecting on how it went.
It’s not the specific WHAT that you choose that matters. It’s the WHY.
Starting and ending your day with an intentional good-for-you action sends a strong message to your mind that you are serious about taking charge of your health.
Taking a small, positive action in the beginning (and end) of each day will help set you up for SUCCESS because:
1) it doesn’t take much time, and
2) it’s ACHIEVABLE.
Try this for ONE MONTH and see what a difference it makes for yourself.
The fact is, motivation doesn’t just happen. It’s something that gets stronger the more you use it (just like your muscles). It takes regular upkeep.
When you have quick wins … and you begin to see (and feel!) your work paying off, it can help drive you forward to even MORE success.
