Habit change is not easy. It takes time, intentionality, and persistence to rewire the automatic channels in our brains. It helps to enjoy the process and celebrate milestones along the journey even if you haven’t arrived at your “destination” yet.
I encourage this principle a lot in my coaching practice with clients. And recently, I’ve had to realize that the same principles seem to apply as I am building my private coaching practice. In the same way I encourage my clients to experiment with different strategies and learn from setbacks, I have had to do that in my business. And sometimes in coaching I am encouraging people that what they are doing is working … it just takes more time and consistency. The same applies to my business.
So, even though I haven’t had a single person sign up to work with me because of the TotTreks, I find that I enjoy them and more and more people are enjoying them too. So, I’ll stick with that and see what comes of it down the road. Even if your new exercise program isn’t showing you the weight loss you were expecting, you know it makes you feel better later in the day … so stick with it and see what comes of it down the road.
As a board certified health coach myself, I work with busy women who do ALL.THE.THINGS ... and then end up feeling used up and exhausted by dinnertime. They want to have the energy after the have-to-dos to actually enjoy and be present for their families and to pursue their passions. Long term habit changes that result in more energy don’t happen overnight and having the encouragement of a health coach in your corner can make a difference in being persistent.
If that sounds like you, contact me using the button below and I'll send you a link so you can schedule a free 15-minute Discovery Call. On that call we can chat about the changes you would like to see with your health, energy, and presence and we can discover together if coaching with me would be a good fit for you.
