As a new year begins, we have hopes and aspirations that fill us with positivity and energy – our possibilities seem virtually limitless! We have big dreams, brilliant ideas, and incredible goals. Yet sometimes, it’s easy to lose motivation along the way. One reason is the human mind is very sophisticated in finding excuses. You can easily explain why you cannot go to the gym and “replace” exercises with a piece of cake and a glass or two of wine (you had a hard day and deserve a treat – this is the most common excuse).
Another reason for non-acting is your goals require a significant change, and your brain is protecting you from the unknown. Your brain knows what’s best for you; it recognizes that taking a leap into the unknown could be an uncertain path, so instead of embracing risk with open arms, it encourages maintaining your current status quo.
But what if we move from massive changes and feelings overwhelmed to focusing on one task, such as eliminating added sugar from our diet? Just for a month. Sure, it is challenging – many of us have sugar addiction even without realizing it, but it is doable. A challenge has start and end dates, so it is not a lifelong commitment. You can do it for 30 days, taking one day at a time. Baby steps will bring you to your goal.
At the same time, 30 days is enough time to create a habit. Your brain will assume that not eating sugar is the new normal, and if you feel good, you will continue with your new healthy eating.
This year, we decided to make each month a chance for personal growth and transformation – 12 monthly self-improvement challenges!
We began in January with the Added Sugar Detox challenge – and some brave souls even took it up another notch by omitting added not only sugar but also wine and fast carbs. It’s an opportunity to take control of the foods in our life, eat healthier and lose extra weight.
Next month is your chance to join the I Feel Good About My Neck course and restore your confidence. Women who participated in the first round of this course in November 2022 continue with a resounding chorus of “I love my neck!”. Now, it’s time for you, too – don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity.
In March, we’ll embark on an exciting journey of tidying up, making space for more meaningful moments, and gaining clarity in our lives!
