How many times have you told yourself, this time will be different? You embark on a New Year, on a new diet, new exercise program, new anything and say “This time will be different!”
However, how many times is it actually different? How many times do you ditch said new program? How often you revert back to your old habits? Do you have dusty exercise equipment or a vegetable juicer that you just never use?
Habits are powerful allies and we put each one in place, consciously or unconsciously for exquisite reasons. So often our reason for not transforming an old habit into a better habit relates to loneliness, lack of joy, or lack of true inspiration. We join a gym, yet we feel uncomfortable and self-conscious when we go. Or it doesn’t feel personal enough. Or the juicer we bought takes so much time to use and what a pain to clean, right!? Isn’t it so much nicer to grab a beer and sit on the couch and watch intelligent TV or get lost on the internet, researching great ideas or being inspired by others? Or for so many woman I know, adrenal fatigue and an over burdened digestive system has made it, well honestly, difficult to add anything new to a routine that is barely working.
This post is not about beating you up or calling you out for not following through on a new program, but is to gently and lovingly encourage you to look at why your self-help habit didn’t stick. The biggest indicators in making lasting change is in having a community that supports your change, or better yet, does it with you together- think support group, exercise class, private trainers or coaches, or friends who are stretching themselves in similar ways at the same time.
I also want you to know that I am here for you and together we can make this time be different. We can lovingly create goals and put transformative habits into place. We can address the systems around your overall health, support, beliefs, and habits that aren’t helping. The Spring Glow Detox starts in just two weeks. This group program is such a wonderful and affordable approach to creating lasting change, making this time be different.
