How many things do you do out of pure habit?
Now I am not necessarily talking about your eating or exercise habits…I mean the seemingly mundane every day things.
Where you park in the supermarket car park?
What order do you walk down the aisles?
What part of the bus/train/tube do you sit on?
Do you always walk the same way around a route?
Which TV programmes you watch?
Do you eat the same sandwich and coffee from the same place every week day?
Do you go into the same shops every time when you have a day out shopping?
Your day to day life is made up of hundreds of these tiny little decisions, which in fact, won’t feel like decisions at all, because they are such automatic habits.
These things are so habitual, we do them without even questioning them. Well I would like to challenge you to do exactly that this week.
I want you to seek out as many areas as possible where you could do something differently, no matter how small.
When I spoke about this in The Tribe, my private monthly membership, one lady posted to say she has even started sitting on a different chair in an evening.
This might not seem like a lot, but you are challenging yourself every time you make a conscious decision to try something different. So it is not the size of the task that is important, it is the fact that you are simply waking up your subconscious mind and consciously choosing a different way.
This will no doubt have a knock on affect on all the other choices and decisions that you make…it simply makes you more aware of the actual decisions YOU are making every day.
So when you automatically have that biscuit with your cup of tea, say yes to the birthday cake in the office and always have a pudding after your evening meal, you will be training yourself to think twice and ask yourself if you actually REALLY want it, or just doing out of pure habit.
Try it for a week and see.
Next time you go shopping, go into a shop you have never been into…just because.
Listen to a different artist instead of your usual playlist.
Try a fruit or vegetable that you have no idea how to cook!
Reading this it all relates to me. I am a creature off habit. I will say to myself for one week DO I NEED THIS DO I WANT THIS !!!!!
Step away from the scales,
If each time you get on them they make you reach for the biscuit tin for comfort.
Don’t let the scales define how your day or your life is going to go.
I’ve just read all these wonderful posts, about Sally, about her private membership group,
about her courses Nordic walking and motivated menopause.
Saying how brilliant she is, and each and every one of these comments are spot on.
So I will ask,
When was the last time you felt good, really good?
Are you are fed up of your own BS, ?
Do you drink water?
Do you do any movement each day.
Do you want leave this earth being the best you can be?
2 years ago I came across Sally,
I wasn’t feeling good,
I didn’t drink water
I thought I did move, a fit bit told me differently.
Couldn’t even crouch to the floor and get up again.
I just thought ‘this is my life’
Not any more it isn’t…..
Sally and her team (Simon & Sam) and being in the Tribe changed all that.
Sally has a way of getting into your head with her truthful, personal life time skills that resonate with most people.
No made up sales talk.,
This approach worked for me,
My mindset was changed,
New habits formed
My lifestyle changed.
It takes time and effort, it’s not a quick fix.
This is for the rest of my life
I’ve learned that I’m worth it.
I love being me.
I’ve lost nearly 4 st. without any diet in sight.
I can now walk down the aisle of a plane without turning sideways.
I can now get on the scales without it defining me.
All because I listened to Sally, and joined her private membership,
Positivity, support, no judgement and so much more.
The group only opens a few times during the year,
So if you get the chance, I encourage you to gift yourself the membership fee,
You won’t regret it and you too will learn to be the best you can be.
I love this Sally . Definitely going to do this !
