Ugh. It's the end of January and your health goals are waning or you didn't even set them up yet....
Hang on! 😮There's still time to get this year on the right track WITH support from me along the way! In this video, I'm going to help you create the daily routine of your dreams with just three simple habits.. SO THAT you are more powerful this year than last!
And bonus hand-holding to help you get those healthy habits established.
What do you think about this statement: Self-care is the new healthcare.
Let's face it - there are only so many hours in a day ⏰ and you feel like you've already lost the chance to get a good running start. You want simplicity, but long-lasting benefits for yourself and your family
Are you ready for the accountability and support you want in setting new healthy habits?
If you want to take charge of your health, life, and happiness, it requires some change. The best way to make lasting change is through micro habits, as they eventually lead to macro changes. Often, we feel overwhelmed if we try changing too much too quickly. But if we start small, it’s amazing how we can train our brains and bodies to do something new, little by little. If you think about it, we already have thousands of daily habits that are second nature to us.
We take showers, lock the door behind us when we leave for work, give our kids a kiss before bed—all without even thinking about it. When we do things repeatedly, the brain builds strong connections with those actions, until eventually we hardly think about them. This is the idea behind habit stacking.
Instead of trying to make a major change and retrain the brain all at once, you instead take advantage of the habits you already have and build on them. For example, if you want to be better at flossing, you stack that with another habit. Every morning when you turn on the shower and have to wait for the water to warm up, you use those 30 seconds to floss. Then pretty soon, just like turning on the shower every morning, flossing while the shower warms up becomes second nature to you.
All habits work in a loop. We first experience a cue, then we perform the habit, after which we receive some sort of reward. That’s how all habits are formed. However, we’ve become so used to these daily habits that we don’t notice the cues triggering them. The good news is this means you can use specific and deliberate cues to trigger habits you want to adopt, and then reap the rewards. If you’ve been wanting to make real changes in your life, know that small habits make big, lasting changes. So start small. Before you know it, habits you used to dream about will come so naturally you won’t even have to think about them!
Let's look at this in terms of creating three simple and healthy habits this year - "The Power of Healthy":
1. Self Assessment
Amount of Daily Movement
Rate yourself on a scale of 1-10.
1= HELP! I'm drowning!
10= I'm a pro and am teaching others to raise the bar in this area.
Ask yourself the following questions; Would you like to raise your scores? | How would your life change if these areas of your health improved?
Join a challenge with others doing the same thing. Find some accountability and support.
Repeat the Self Assessment
So, let’s get started!
Are you ready to change your health? If you want to feel less stressed, lethargic, and weighed down by life, you’ll need to change your habits. I'm giving you three habits to focus on for 21 days. At the end of 21 days, these three habits will give you a new normal—a happier, healthier day, and healthy habits that you don’t even have to think twice about.
Simple Habit 1: Water Intake
Hydration does so much to help the body, yet many of us aren’t getting adequate water every day. By making the conscious decision to increase your water intake, you’ll notice an improvement in other areas of health like skin, digestion, focus, energy, and more. And before long, you won’t have to remind yourself to drink more water—it’ll just be a habit.
Simple Habit 2: Daily Movement
Most people have the best intentions when it comes to daily exercise, but busy schedules and family responsibilities often get in the way. Setting aside time to get moving helps us feel our best. Whether you get moving by taking your dog on a walk, straining through a tough workout, or doing a quick yoga session, your body and mind will feel better when you’re done.
Simple Habit 3: Restful Sleep
Restful sleep is one of the most underrated elements of a healthy body. You might find you’ll need to remove distractions and barriers to good sleep if you want to make it a part of your regular routine. By focusing on getting sufficient rest, you’ll find you feel much better during the day and have the energy and motivation to focus on other healthy habits.
We know how overwhelming it can feel to make changes, so we're going to do this together because that's how we go farther. What could we do if we hit the reboot button and built new habits with intention?
If the idea of integrating new healthy habits excites you and if you're motivated to go to a new level with your health, we've got something for you. We're launching a 21 -day challenge that is going to guide you in a simple routine that builds a strong foundation, and we're going to do this together.
So here's how it works.... Starting Feb 1, every day for 21 days, there will be a simple daily routine to follow, along with a daily challenge, that you can tailor to your own personal health goals. We'll walk you through three weeks of actions that you can implement through a simple daily plan that builds on that foundation. You'll learn how to put your doTERRA products to work for you. By the end of our 21 days together, you will have anchored simple, yet powerful habits that optimize your health. And to add in a little extra fun, there will be giveaways throughout the 21 days as you engage with the daily assignments.
