By reading these secrets to creating change a few at a time in this blog series, you are giving yourself time to reflect and apply the insights in preparation for what is coming next – way to go! Here are more secrets now:
- Respect yourself.
I’ve heard it before, “Don’t waste food.” New perspective here: Where is food more of a waste, in the waste can or on your body where you suffer medical conditions and have to work it off?
It was very enlightening for me when I experienced self-respect around food for the first time. I remember that I used to clean my plate, whether I was hungry or not. There came a day when I realized that the food was as much a waste in my body as it was thrown away. The difference was that if I threw it away, I saved money on doctor bills and the strain of illnesses it eventually caused via weight gain.
I find that sticking up for myself in all aspects is much easier now.
- Actions have consequences.
Calories, whether eaten today or tomorrow, still end up in the same place. Usually we eat a bag of chips as a sort of “house cleaning” before a diet, so we eat every unhealthy food available. The same foods will still be in the world tomorrow. The questions, like what we learn in coach training, are: “What are the pros and cons of eating it? and “How can you incorporate the change in your eating into your lifestyle?”
A note: I find these questions helpful in financial matters as well.
Utilizing a Wellness Coach who completed their coaching certification will help you set and reach your goals to achieve success!
How do these secrets apply in creating change for other goals?
