You might have been focusing on your career or taking care of your family. In fact, you were so busy that you didn’t even noticed that you stopped taking care of yourself. You just put your own needs on the back burner.
But you've reached a point in your life in which you feel that you need to make changes. You simply can’t stay the same anymore. You know that your current behaviours are taking a toll on your body, health and life.
But you've reached a turning point. Maybe it was a glimpse of yourself in a picture. Or an innocent comment from someone. Or a wake up call delivered by your doctor after a routine check up.
Whatever triggered you, made you feel uncomfortable. But it also helped you decide to change. And this is a powerful position to be.
It means that you want to change!
The problem is that we’ve been conditioned to think that to see results one must put a lot of effort, all at once.
That's how people end up with ambitious plans. Plans that overestimate their capabilities and underestimate the time and effort required to get results. Plans destined to fail.
They start full of motivation and jump head first into the new behaviours, just to realize within a few weeks that they can't sustain them. With that comes a sense of overwhelm and discouragement that culminates with them finally giving up.
If you've been through this before, it's time to try a different approach.
"Change can be hard. We're hardwired to resist change. So, it's normal to have mixed feelings about it. However, it's possible to make this process a little bit easier. With a sound strategy and plenty of support, you'll be ready to tackle the ups and downs of the journey."
