We live in an INSTANT culture. We want things now & perhaps even delivered.
Living in an instant culture makes it hard to practice patience. Progress takes TIME which is exactly why I think people give up on themselves too quickly.
I don’t think you give yourself enough credit. Yeah that’s right, i’m talking to you– I think you are too hard on yourself.
Honestly I think we are all a little too hard on ourselves, myself included- I am so hard on myself that I sometimes drive myself insane!!
We can be our own BIGGEST enemy. I mean, think about it, we are in our own head all day long- from the moment we roll out of bed, just talking to ourselves, THEN to make matters worse we hop on our social media feed and look at the highlight realm of others lives *uuuugggghhhhhhh*.
We are making things much harder for ourselves & it’s important to keep things SIMPLE.
#1- SELF POSITIVITY IS SO IMPORTANT FOR ANY GOAL.
Especially, self improvement.
If you are talking badly to yourself all day, you’re losing at everything.
If you have a goal for yourself to look a certain way, lose a certain amount of weight or feel better you HAVE to believe in yourself.
Stop telling yourself you “CAN’T” do something- because then you never will & that will suck.
When you tell yourself you can (even if you “can’t” do it at the moment) your likelihood of doing whatever it is is HIGHHHH.
With that being said, PLZ note that self positivity is the #1 thing you should be focusing on when trying to achieve a goal.
You want to get fit?
Well you better BELIEVE you can with every ounce of your being.
I HATTTTTEEEEEEEE when I hear people say “this is too hard” or “I can’t do that because..” BULL CRAP. You can do whatever you want! If you “can’t” do something at this very moment then that doesn’t mean you wont EVER- you have to TRY your best now so you can become stronger. If you don’t try then you just really don’t CARE to, it’s not that you “can’t”.
1st mistake you are making when it comes to achieving your goals is thinking you CAN’T.
Start thinking in terms of YOU CAN
& you will be on your way to the top.
Here are some POSITIVE feeling boosters you can do everyday to keep your self love on HIGH.
The more time you spend outside, the happier you will be. We weren’t created to be cooped up inside all day, it truly takes away from our natural feelings and can be very depressing so get outside !! Get a outside workout in, have dinner outside, sit poolside, whatever gets you out!
The more “happy hormones” you create, the better you will feel. Studies show that just 10 minutes on the stairs promotes brain release of neurotransmitters (DOPAMINE) promoting feelings of energy!! So you don’t actually need that 2nd Venti latte from Starbucks to give you energy, you really just need to GET MOVING. Work smarter, not harder.
Get Enough Sleep
The last thing you need is extra stress, and that’s exactly what being sleep deprived does to you- releases cortisol. Shoot for 8 hours of shut eye A NIGHT to feel your BEST.
Tips to getting good sleep? Try working out later in the day, reading a book 30 mins before bed versus lurking on social media & CALM TEA (magnesium tea).
Keep it simple guys.
Stay active, positive & happy.
Talk to you soon- i’m off to drink some magnesium tea and get my 8 hrs of sleep!!
