When I work with clients I try to put all of the focus on improving all aspects of their life.
When you are working towards a health and fitness goal it is not just about working out and losing weight. It is a total life transformation! You have to think and act differently on a daily basis. You have to be less critical and grow a patience not only for yourself but for other people that are around you.
When you create health and fitness goals I also suggest to create other life goals. This journey is not just about losing the weight; it is also about becoming a better person! You have to condition yourself to think differently and that also means having less negative thoughts about yourself and other people that are around you.
The more negative things that you limit or try to cut out of your life, you will start to notice the smaller and more enjoyable things that happen day to day. There are so many great and beautiful things around you if you take a moment to stop and notice them! People who are negative usually are to wrapped up in what is going wrong with their life to notice all of the good things that are going on.
When working towards your health and fitness goal you have to work on all aspects of your life. You have to work on your physical, mental, and emotional challenges. Once you start to better these areas in your life, your journey will have so much more meaning and you can enjoy the process (and the results) so much more!
My motto for this year...."It could always be worse". Try to cut out all of the negativity and focus on the good things that happen to you! No matter what is going on, or how bad your day is, there is always someone else out there who is going through something worse than you are. I am not saying that your troubles are not meaningful; I am saying do not let them define you! Yes we all go through rough times in life but it is how you overcome them that helps to build you into a better person!
Today's challenge: Try NOT to complain about anything!! Someone at work is bothering you? Walk away from them! Do not go and gossip about them with your co-workers or your boss. Is a friend or family member bugging you today? Try not to answer their phone call or tell them that you are busy and can not help them today. You may notice you may enjoy the day a little more when you have less things and people to complain about! Try this for a day (or for all week) and see if this starts to help you on your journey!
