You know how amazing it feels when you wake up refreshed after a beautiful night’s rest, have a green juice and proceed to get in all the right foods and exercise you need that day?
Is that scenario not happening often enough?
If you struggle with staying consistent with your health regime, or if you know what you “should” be doing for your body but aren’t quite doing it, then listen up.
Here are the key questions to ask yourself:
1. Is your deeper self in line with your outer goals? For example: You can say that you really want to lose weight, but not realize that there’s a deep subconscious fear that’s at the root of your self-sabotage -- perhaps being thin will mean that you’ll get unwanted attention from men, or that you won’t have an excuse for not putting yourself out there on dates or auditions. Get real with yourself by doing some journaling. Ask yourself, “Do I really want this and what do I fear would happen if I actually got it?” Report in what you discover below.
2. Are your goals too strict or unrealistic? Are you putting pressure on yourself to get everything perfect and therefore causing more stress or a total opposite reaction? If someone tells me not to do something, the first thing I’ll want to do is do that thing! Know what I mean? Stop putting so much pressure on yourself to be the perfect picture of health, and start making it a fun and pleasurable process. Find the right balance for you and if you need support in getting there, let us know!
3. Are you taking your menstrual cycle into consideration? Remember that your body is constantly going through hormonal flux and it shouldn’t function the same way each day or each week. If you’re mad because you’re not working out consistently throughout the month, it might be a sign that you have to change up your workout routine for the different phases of your cycle. Knowing what phase of the cycle you’re in and what your body’s unique needs are at that time of month is key to a healthy relationship with your body.
