How To Stick With Your Long Term Health Goals, Even When It Sucks

Posted

 

 

I just finished with a wonderful medical conference in which I had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Terry Wahls speak.

She so impressive, with the amount of medical experience, knowledge and wisdom she possesses… particularly in the field of autoimmune disorders and how diet impacts our body’s health.  Visit her website here if you are interested in learning more about that.

That’s not what I loved most, however.  The part I loved most was when she talked about helping patients get clear on why they even want to do the work of healing in the first place.

She walked us through how to help patients become really clear on why they are willing to work for their health, because that same motivation will get them through sticking with their healing plan even when discomfort arrises.

Even when cravings hit, or physical therapy is hard, or addictive urges arise. Almost all healing plans — from diet modifications to exercise goals to more dramatic things like recovering from surgery or completing rehab… almost all depend on your ability to stick with the plan even when it gets uncomfortable.

Knowing why you want to do the healing work is exactly the reminder you need to stick with it even when it gets hard.

If you find yourself not following through on your health goals — whether you start and then stop different diets, or pledge to go to the gym and then quit, or if you’d like to be more diligent about grounding daily but never can seem to find the time, or you are having trouble breaking your addiction to your smart phone and find yourself checking social media so much more often then you really have time for… this advice will help you.

I loved it so much I made a video about it for you right here.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now that you have clarity on why you want to do the healing work, maybe you are facing difficult health related decisions that you are going to have to make.

I’ve got you here too… I recently created a video walking you through how to get clarity when making tough decisions.

If you enjoyed the video above, you might enjoy this one too:

 

 

 

 

 

I created a free printable worksheet for you too, that will help walk you through the steps to making the decision that feels most aligned with your unique goals and your unique situation.

Simply print it out and then click the 9 minute video above and I will personally talk you through filling it out.

 

 

If you love the worksheet, feel free to save it as a file on your computer to use whenever you like, forever more.  Print out as many copies as you want, whenever you want.  Or bookmark this blog post and I’ll keep this link active on my website indefinitely.

I guarantee if you run through this exercise just one time with me today, you will remember it forever.  And in the future, you’ll be able run through the acronym in just seconds, without ever writing a single thing down.

Of course, please share it with any loved ones who are making difficult decisions too — we could all use a little more support these days.

Clarity, ease, a sense of relief, a meaningful choice and an actionable health plan that actually excites you, instead terrifies you…  that is my goal in sharing both of these healing videos with you today.  I hope they were helpful!

Created for you, with love, from me.
