::What I do to stay consistent::
Whenever, wherever possible I leave things out for myself that remind me to get it done. Trust me we all fall off the wagon. I'm back on it day #4. For example I jump and do weights on my trampoline. Amazing way to workout without serious joint impact, while improving circulation and lymphatic system. I leave it out everyday so I see it and get reminded.
I do the same with meditation and leave out my lil meditating frog in the bathroom. And I also set timers for myself at 11:11, 1:11, etc. so I know to take a 5min break or meditate.
I also have a quote in the bathroom that says "you woke up like this #flawless" so I can give myself love every morning.
The key is to leave msgs for yourself, whether physical evidence, a reminder note, a phone calendar event, a timer, whatever it takes!
Give yourself chances to succeed! As many as you need! Got it? Be almost obsessed like Jon Jones with your own life. Now go get em!
Does any of this sound familiar?
Tell me if you are familiar with this scenario. You get pumped. Set goals:
- Exercise 3-4 times a week. Check.
- Stop spending so much on unnecessary things. Check.
- Start treating your crazy brother better. Check.
- You decide this year is the year you'll save for that trip on your bucket list. Check.
After a month or 3 (that's the average), everything you've thought you wanted takes a back seat. It's no coincidences most business spike up in profit the first few months of the year just to go back down. Yeah no thanks. I just don't do resolutions.
Even the word itself has an undertone of having to fix something that you broke and you resolve to either not do that again or start over with something else. I just can't live with that kind of negative emotion and pressure to start off my year. Can you?
So instead I do consistent planning throughout the year. All this mean is I feel out what is it I want to concentrate onin the various areas of my life (spirit, health, wealth, & relationships) for either long term (year(s)) or short term (1-3 months) and set some positive goals that I feel in my gut with some good ol fashioned VISUALIZATION. (see my Free Starter Kit that includes a lake side visualization)
PLUS here's the important part for you 'resolution starters'... I don't wait! I start it before the new year and throughout the year. So if I want to bring yoga into my life in November- I don't sulk in the misery of my failed attempts in the past and why i should fix it this next year. I think of the feeling it gives me when I get on that mat and do the cross nostril breathing and ohm sounding. Ohhmm... can you feel it already? I can.
Imagine a world where you can focus on the positive feelings your goals will give you, rather than making goals to fix something you've done inevitably to yourself. No thanks!
And guess what? It' s not too late now or ever too late to do some post planning now that it's already 2017. It's just never too late to feel good about things you want to do for yourself and others! EVER! Start now :)
