Have you ever noticed that when people are looking to get in shape, they often jump right into huge goals? Maybe it’s running a marathon or even just a 5k.
The same thing happens with dieting. Giving up all sugar cold turkey. Saying you’ll never eat carbs again. Whatever the case may be, we’re here to offer far better advice.
Practice consistency above all else, because it’s truly the consistency of small changes over time that adds up to significant results.
When you come out of the gate at 100 mph, you will likely end up falling off the wagon within weeks or even days. So, don’t focus on a marathon. Focus on walking a mile every day until that feels almost too easy. Don’t cut all carbs on day 1, but stop putting sugar in your morning coffee.
Small, sustainable changes add up over time and are transformational. The pressure alone from the all or none mentality breaks most people before they even start. That’s how years go by, and there’s still no change (or things get worse).
So, what are the few small changes you can commit to today that almost feel too easy? That’s a great place to start.
P.S. Of course, having an accountability and support system is the make or break for most people. If you’d like to see how we can be that for you, please hit reply to let us know.
