Change and Priorities – Healthy Living

What is the secret to lasting change and healthy living? Here is your weekly motivation.

Change & Priorities | Inner Savvy Wellness
The hardest part of healthy living for any of my clients is to make the changes needed.  Changing what you eat, how you move, when you go to bed, and more all can feel overwhelming.  How do you do it?  Where do you start?

You start with your “why”.  Why do you want to live a healthy life?  Whatever it is, write it down.  Spend time with it.  Then put it out there.

With your your why in mind, start with adding in something, not taking away something.  Taking away is negative.  You want to add in the good…eat one more vegetable, walk around the block, add 15 minutes of sleep.  The more you add in over time, the more you will be focusing on the new and not the old. With time, the old can fade away.

Change & Priorities | Inner Savvy Wellness
The other important piece of change, changing from poor health to healthy living is to make it a priority.  We all are prone to excuses in everything in our lives.  Our lives are crazy busy, and we are pulled in many directions, but we always have time for what our priorities. With your why in mind, start making your changes a priority in your life.  When you

With your why in mind, make health a priority in your life.  When you schedule your activities for healthy living on your calendar, you know they are a priority in life.

    I like the idea of adding something instead of taking something away. Although I have a terrible sweet tooth, I recently decided to do some juicing – fill my body with a good quantity of vitamins and minerals which should help me feel less deprived when I cut back on sweets. I also try to add only one thing at a time – when I jump into multiple things at once, no matter how gusto I feel about it to start with, it overwhelms me and I usually give them all up. So, taking the time to master one change at a time has been helpful.

    • Karen says:

      You got it. One thing at at time adding in. Too much is overwhelm and a recipe for not succeeding. I love your idea of juicing. Start with juicing to include apples or other sweet fruit. Over time, add less sweet fruit and add more bitters or less sweet veggies.

    one thing at a time is a perfect idea. so many times people want to do so much at once, get overwhelmed, and lose motivation all together. Doing one at time would be perfect for those who actually want lifestyle changes.

    • Karen says:

      One thing at a time works for most things in our life, but we are so impatient and want it now. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, you made my day.

    • Karen says:

      I am so glad to hear that you are working on your eating. You can do it. If you can do it with exercise, you have the strength and persistence. Make it a priority.

    • Karen says:

      If you know that an admit it to yourself, you are half way there. So many people don’t really know themselves. Start with things that are easier for you to change before you tackle the harder ones. Also, break down the tough ones to something really small to start. You can do it when you are ready. 🙂

    Sometimes it’s a lot more than making it a priority. I was committed to a healthy lifestyle until a huge emotional upheaval. WHile I still eat healthy on a day to day, when my emotions soar, I turn to food for comfort. As a result, I’ve gained weight back and feel like a slob. However, learning to deal with emotions can be difficult, especially when it’s a habit not to. It’s a lot more work than most realize.

    • Karen says:

      Oh Mary, I am sorry to hear that you had an emotional upheaval. Yes, emotions and sleep play a huge role in health. Learning to take care of yourself with other options can also help when you want to eat. I still will eat when my boys frustrate me, but I am getting better at doing other things. It really is a journey. Keep working to make healthy habits a lifestyle, it helps, but doesn’t prevent when you have the crazy rollercoaster of life. Finding support can also help. I am rooting for you, and if I could I would give you a great big hug.

  4. I love how you simplified the process of incorporating healthy living into a daily routine. It’s a simple truth that you either prioritize your health or you don’t! We all have to make decisions that fit our goals, but you’re so right about excuses. I’ve been trying to make sure I’m not making excuses and building barriers, but it can be tough on some days. Great advice. 🙂

    I think it shows what you values are. Which in essence is not what you say but more of what you do on a regular basis. My values do include healthy food choices, organic juicing and protein rich natural smoothies….

    • Karen says:

      Yes, it is in what you do, not what you say that matters to your health and many other areas of your life. Sounds like you have thought through your health priorities.

  6. Mindful, consistent, smart healthy living is still one of my greatest goals! Thanks for sharing this helpful post. I am featuring it on this week’s Healthy Living Link Party and pinning it too!
