Last month I was interviewed by The Iron Jen McDonough and shared some really simple steps to make this your healthiest, best year ever. One of the basic principles of my coaching is to use what I call “baby steps” – small, gradual, incremental changes rather than large, sweeping ones.
Baby steps may not seem very effective but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Each small, consistently practiced change builds on the next and they create momentum! Getting one healthy habit in place very naturally leads to another.
For example, when you begin drinking more water you’ll see you have more energy. Then deciding to spend 5 or 10 minutes exercising can be the next, very natural step. Each one builds on the previous one and before you even realize it, you’ve made some very profound changes!
If you missed it, I invite you to watch the interview – it’s only 23 minutes and I promise you’ll find some encouragement and practical information.
What are some things you are doing to make this year healthier than last year?
