Today is your first day of the 7 day challenge.
And today’s step (along with your green smoothie) is about setting yourself up for success.
Setting resolutions or goals is a great way to start the year fresh, but as many of us know all too well, ditching old habits isn’t easy. Especially if you’re relying on willpower.
Willpower only really works in the short term. It’s like saying No! over and over to yourself. A form of punishment. Now, where’s the fun and excitement in that?
To succeed in the long you need to design a program that will change your life in small ways you can live with.
Staying motivated and connected everyday is the tough part. This is the most difficult step I see when I work with my clients. The big goals are more fun for most of us. But the day to day is the less sexy part.
