Health and fitness seem to be about the body but that’s only half the picture. How we think – our mindset – can change our ability to set a health goal and achieve it. If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone!
For some people it’s as simple as making a decision and doing whatever it takes to see it through and succeed.
For many of us, it’s not that easy. We doubt ourselves, find reasons why it won’t work and then we just don’t start!
Start by seeing yourself clearly
The first step is to create self awareness. How are you getting in your own way? Are you having a negative conversation with yourself, that’s distracting you from getting healthy? Contact Tanya today
Try catching yourself in a negative dialogue. Next time you get motivated to do something, stay alert for the little negativities that creep in. ‘Why bother, it’s not going to help…’ ‘I’m not seeing results as quickly as I thought so I’m going to stop…’ ‘I feel like a failure…’
Changing your mindset is about changing that negative chit chat so that it no longer blocks you from achieving your health and fitness goals.
Mindset affects all areas of life
In my coaching sessions you’ll learn how to follow these principles on your health and fitness journey. You might be surprised to hear that you’re already successfully applying them in your professional career and your working environment.
There is a saying you might have heard: T.E.A.M – Together Everyone Achieves More. That can be true if everybody in the team has a positive outlook and believes the team can achieve its goals. Many workplaces provide training and mentoring to help colleagues and teams work together to solve problems, achieve goals and stay positive.
Perhaps you’ve worked on a project where the deadline was tight. Perhaps others in the team and perhaps even you doubted you could meet that timeframe, budget or quality objective. You might also have seen situations where the team works together and overcomes whatever is getting in the way. Maybe you brainstormed some ideas to see how to get unstuck – that’s often a great way for teams to open up and solve problems. In the end, your team probably came up with something that sounded like, ‘Okay, we can meet this deadline, now what’s the best way to work together to get this done.’
Next time you are working with a team observe some of the group conversation and notice what could sound negative. Can you see ways that you could help your colleagues turn that negative into a positive?
How does workplace relate to health and fitness goals?
Yes, you are reading a blog on a coaching website so what’s all this talk about the workplace? The answer is surprisingly simple. We often excel in our careers and in the workplace. And then we forget to take those great workplace skills and apply them in the areas of health, fitness, weight loss, wellbeing – or whatever our personal goals are.
As your empowerment coach, I’ll work with you at both levels – physical and mindset. I can help you understand when the negative thoughts are creeping in and how to change that mindset to work for you instead of against you!
