PLUS: 12-Minute Yoga Flow for Sore Upper Bodies
We all do this.
We say to ourselves:
“I’ll eat healthier this week.”
“I’ll be kinder.”
“I’m going to finally go to that yoga class three times a week.”
And these are all amazing things to do.
Until we get lost in our intentions and not in our actions.
We lack the motivation to actually see something through, because our reasons are never strong enough. Never rooted.
Which brings me to my ONE tip for generating motivation.
You need to deeply connect to why you’re doing something.
Eating healthier is great, but not if it’s only because you want a six pack.
Being kinder is also lovely, but not if you’re doing it for the wrong reasons.
And saying you’ll make it to a yoga class regularly isn’t worthwhile if it’s rooted in trying to be like an Instagram yogi.
So how the hell do we stick with something?!
We need to stop throwing out blanket statements for changes we wish to make.
Instead, give yourself a full twenty minutes to through the following things:
What am I going to invite into my life?
Why is this important to me?
How am I going to incorporate this?
Say to yourself: “I am [enter whatever you wish to be].”
Truly give yourself the space to let these changes sink in. When you give yourself the time, you start BEING the person that does the exact thing you wish to do.
You’re a healthy eater.
You’re a yogi.
You can be everything you wish to be. You just need to give yourself the space to do so.
Don’t go yet! If you want to get organized and reset for each week, be sure to fill out the form below to snag your copy of the Sunday Summit worksheet. You’ll be glad you did.
