K.I.S.S. (keep it super simple)
I'm reading Atomic Habits right now and I want to gift it to everyone. The chapter I'm reading now talks about how your environment determines your behavior. The book even explains how grocery stores are designed to get you to buy things like alcohol, and snack foods, even if you didn't plan to. I love this book because I coach people on habit change. I usually work from a mindset perspective. Helping my clients identify why the habit is so hard to break or implement. Mostly it comes down to believing you're worth the time and effort it takes to change. Once you believe you are worth it, you'll make the time and you'll put in the effort. I also share tactical tips to help create small wins to boost self-confidence. When you do something, like take your vitamins or workout, you create proof that you can workout, or you can take your vitamins. And when you keep doing those things, your success snowballs. Soon enough, you'll have a pile of proof that you're a person that exercises, or you are a person that takes their vitamins. This is how you create new beliefs that will carry you into life long health and well-being. Best in health, Celeste
