It feels good, doesn’t it?
There is incredible power in your daily habits.
Your habits quite literally mold our body, our health and our accomplishments in life.
And the current climate has given us all the amazing opportunity to form new habits.
Also, it turns out that there’s a special secret sauce to making new habits stick that I’d like to share with you today…
This secret sauce goes against our instincts and the way that we are wired, which is why so many of us can struggle to make healthy, new habits truly stick and become part of our ongoing routine.
It’s far easier for us to take on the role of a critic with ourselves than that of a cheerleader.
We compare ourselves to others and focus on our flaws rather than pausing to celebrate our wins by really feeling good.
This works against us because it is proven that emotions create habits and that the positive emotion of FEELING GOOD is the BEST WAY to get a new habit to stick!
Now if you’re anything like me then the idea of celebrating tiny little wins is a bit uncomfortable.
I’ll feel good about myself when I do something substantial, you may think.
However, by training yourself to truly FEEL GOOD about each and every step that you take in the right direction, you’re more likely to keep on making progress.
It’s time to tell your inner critic to slow down and take a back seat!
All those times that we wallow in feeling bad only make it more difficult to make positive progress toward our goals.
Once you capture the power of feeling good, you’ll train yourself to enjoy and celebrate all of the healthy new behaviors that will ultimately lead you to your BIG goal.
Do I have your commitment to try out the secret sauce of feeling good?
When you wake up and exercise, go for your walk or spend meditating. FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT!
When you read your book, make healthy food choices or spend quality time with family, FEEL GOOD.
Really, actually, FEEL GOOD.
It may take some practice, but with time you’ll look forward to feeling good after practicing each healthy new behaviour.
Positivity is both infectious and healthy.
And right now, we need it more than ever!
So, give your mind and body the good feelings it needs so that you can be at your best.
