So I decided to take a different approach on this coaching thing. Don’t get me wrong, I love talking about nutrition but I also realized that I have a lot more to offer the world than just talking about nutrition. I’ve learned a lot over the last few years and I’m ready to share it with everyone! I’ve decided that my new mission is to provide women all over the world with the tools and resources to create their BEST LYFE EVER!
The first step before learning any new habits is learning to prioritize yourself. This can be difficult to some because they put mom, wife, manager, etc before self love. Many of us forget that if we do not put ourselves in front of others we cannot be our best for our children, husbands, employees, etc. I know because I did this. I put everyone else before myself and that’s when it all came crashing down. As you already know, I’ve been dealing with these hives and unfortunately it has made me very cranky over the last couple years. But learning to prioritize myself and work through my health issues was the only way to end up strong on the other side.
Below are some of the things I found most important throughout all of this. Here are the 7 key areas I believe to achieve your best lyfe ever! It’s all about changing habits. If you can change your habits, you can change your life. However keep in mind I’m not even going to begin to crack the surface on these today but will have courses and coaching sessions over time to help with all of them.
As human beings we are incredible. I believe that everyone of us has the power to achieve anything we put our mind to. We just have to believe. I know this can be difficult but through affirmations and meditation we can certainly train our minds. The first step is believing we can. As Tony Robbins quotes, “You can change anything in your life today by changing your perceptions and changing your actions”.
I never realized how important sleep was until recently. My husband recently got me an Oura ring and I started tracking my sleep. My sleep was only 10 mins deep a night! Through a nighttime routine and the use of my new favorite bio-hack, the chilipad, my sleep has improved dramatically! Good sleep makes all the difference. I wake up more energized and ready to take on the world.
Eating Whole Foods
This is the area where I get the most questions… The most common one is “what should I eat?” I truly believe that everyone’s body is different and we all need to learn to listen to the signs it is giving us. But one thing I feel certain about is that we should all be eating real unprocessed food. This is a must. We should be eating things Mother Nature intended is to eat. I always loved the saying “if it was made from a plant, eat it. If it was made in a plant, don’t”. If you focus on nothing else focus on this alone. If it comes in a can, jar, bag, or box it’s probably not in your best interest to eat. Start here and start from where you are.
Get your body moving! But find something you love. Go for a hike, ride a bike, find a Zumba class. Just make sure you enjoy it. If it becomes a chore you’re unlikely to continue to go. However if you find joy in it you will more likely continue. There are so many ideas out there to choose from. Download the MindBody app and see what classes are in your area. remember sometimes slowing down and doing so yoga or tai chi is the key to weight loss.
I’m not going to go deep here but if you have negative thoughts about money then that’s what you will bring into your life, negativity around money. We could get into savings, retirement, investing, etc here but I’m not for this purpose. Those are all important but for this conversation, It’s important that you focus the money on things that bring you joy or are helping you to become a better human being. So ask yourself when buying something “Does this bring me joy?” “Is this bringing me closer to my end goal?” Or “Is this making me a better human being?”
We are all in relationships whether we like it or not…with our spouse, our kids, our parents, our friends, our co-workers, etc. Unless you are a recluse you have some sort of relationship. It’s important that these relationships are always growing. If they are toxic, work on them or leave them. Negativity just breeds more negativity. We all want the same thing in life which is to bring more joy and happiness into our lives so put your focus here with your loved ones.
I believe that we all need to believe in something bigger than ourselves. You can call it God, Universe, Love, it doesn’t matter. But believe there is something out there. When we put our faith into something bigger amazing things can happen. I’ve learned to put my guard down and trust the universe and I’ve gotten this far. I can’t wait to see what it has in store for me.
These are just a few things I learned along the way and have made a priority in my life. I can attest they have made such a difference. My goal is to ultimately be able to share these tips and tricks and more details with women all over the world. If I can make a difference in just one woman’s life then it’s all worth it. It’s all about creating habits and habits create lasting change. Sign up for a free Discovery Session with me today! Decide to take back control of your life and learn to live your BEST LYFE EVER!
