Week 1 – One Simple Action

You may be excited to jump in with both feet but let’s get you to success with a proven strategy. The way to incorporate lasting change is to begin with just one, simple, daily action that over time will provide you with great results. The key is to make it so easy and attainable, you feel very confident you could do it, no problem! Once you have established this one daily action, then you can allow it to grow over time and increase the benefits it will bring.

So what is your top priority? Can you think of one simple action, that done daily, will move you in the direction of better health and wellness?

Let’s take a look at some ideas:

  • Walk for 3 minutes after one of your meals.
  • Reduce your screen time by 10 minutes each day.
  • Drink one less soda a day or one less alcohol drink a day.
  • Start your day with a 3 minute meditation.
  • Commit to turning lights out a few minutes earlier than usual and state a specific time. 

What are some of your ideas? List them out in a journal or notebook (Or buy my book to use the Action Guide that’s included.)

Example Goal: “Walk for three minutes after breakfast daily.” Look at your plan each night so you know what you will be doing the next day. Make a commitment in your mind that you will follow through with your plan. Set an alarm, and look at it in the morning, to remind yourself of the action you will be taking and when. Be your own “head coach” and tell yourself, “This is easy and I can do it!” Be sure to document the action that you took that day in your journal or notebook. Daily documentation is what will keep you mindful of your plan and motivated to stay on track. If you do not follow through with your plan, then it was not simple enough and make it even easier for success; “Stand up and sit down three times from my chair after breakfast daily.” rather than “Walk for three minutes after breakfast daily.” The goal is to accomplish the plan daily and feel good that you made it happen for yourself. Once this feels routine, then you can expand your daily action. This is the foundation of wellness, the commitment to yourself, you are important, your plan is important and you are dedicated to the plan you have created for yourself. This daily process will establish a habit that will give you achievable and life-improving results!
