Having been a health coach for over 3 years and coaching numerous women on health, nutrition, and wellness, there is one common theme I have seen. Most of us already know what we need to be doing to improve our health!
There is a lot of information (and mis-information) when it comes to the foods we eat. Just look at the variety of books in the diet or health section in any bookstore. That said, when it comes right down to it, we still know the basic things we should be doing to improve our health.
In fact, when I ask my clients “What are three things you think you could be doing to improve your health?” I get similar answers each time:
- Be more active
- Stop eating _______ or stop drinking ________ (or stop smoking)
- Eat more vegetables.
We intuitively know how to make ourselves well. But when it comes to following through? That’s where we fall apart. I know, I have done it, too. I still do. I might be a health coach, but I’m still human. I eat chocolate (dark), I drink wine, and sometimes I don’t eat as well as I should.
Just for a moment, I’d like you to think about the obstacles that are stopping you from living your healthiest life. Think about it, journal it, and reflect on it.
What obstacles are standing in your way? Maybe you work long hours and cooking a healthy meal seems too time-consuming, or maybe you feel that the price of healthy food is too high. Perhaps you will discover that you aren’t sure if you really deserve to feel amazing.
Your job for the next week is to simply think, reflect, and journal on these obstacles. Knowing your obstacles, habits, and patterns will help you figure out how to work around them.
I would love to hear your comments below. Tell me what is stopping you.
