5 Ways to Move Forward!

With the new year is upon us we all like to think ahead and get excited about planning what's next. Like taking a trip or maybe you're getting married. There are always big life events that make each year an event in and of itself. But what about the little things?! Like those goals that keep coming back every year and keep reminding us that we need to make this one particular change.

Every year, 81% of New Year's resolutions fail. How sad is that?!? 

I mean come on, we are all adults here (or I'd like to think we are). We can do this! We can put away the cookies and fit in a work out today. And most f-ing days for that matter. If it means enough to you, you'll make time for it. You know this to be so true so don't lie to yourself anymore!

Trust me that I am not where I thought I'd be going into 2017. I am in a better place but there are changes that I really want to stick this time around. I began looking in all of the areas of my life where I have not been succeeding. Why am I not leading the life that I want? I should be the epitome of wellness but I continue to let myself down. I have decided to take more responsibility for my overall well-being in this coming year. I am the only one who can make myself truly happy. But hey, I am not one to get offended if my friend slaps a cookie out of my hand because I'd do the same to her! Spend time with friends and loved ones that will be supportive of what you need. 

Trust yourself that you can make these changes once and for all!!!!

Here are 5 ways to reach your goals this coming year:

1) Think about what it is you truly want

Sit down with a pen and paper and consider what matters most to you present day. Set your intentions with the New Moon before the end of 2016. As the moon becomes full, your power of commitment grows as well.

2) Give yourself time

Stop thinking of a whole calendar year as the timeline for your goals. When you think of each task you've completed in your life, it didn't all happen within 365 days. Give yourself appropriate time frames. I suggest starting with monthly goals. It takes 21 days to change a habit so 30 days is enough time to commit to any change.

*Consider doing Whole30 with me!!! =)

3) Be confident!

Believe in yourself first of all! Be honest about your limitations and be open to the unexpected. Things are never what they seem at first. You will most likely surprise yourself in the end! ;)

4) See it!

Make a vision board! Put together ideas and things you see happening for yourself. Look at it everyday. See mine on instagram. It changes from time to time but it's a constant reminder that I believe in my work and the love I have for my life.

5) Manifest it!

Write it all down. Re-write it and read it when you feel like inspiring yourself. Remember why you wanted this thing so badly in the first place. 

With love and health,

5 goal setting tricks that work!

Everyday you wake up, you check your phone and emails, see what you missed while sleeping (a necessary thing everyone should be working on every night). And what pops into your head? Everything you need/want to do for the day/week and sometimes month.  How do you prioritize? How do you get everything organized and done and feel productive at the same time?

Here are 5 tricks to make you get sh*t done:

  1. Make A List: Lists of any kind help you stay organized and keep track of your thoughts. A 'To Do' list comes in handy when you're trying to juggle a million things, like we all do...I know I do! For me, writing it down makes it more real and more likely to come to fruition. Seeing it on paper (even on my iCal) makes me more accountable. It sets a reminder for me to rethink why I may be doing something in particular. 
  2. Check things off: Goals can have many steps involved to finally reach the end result. Be realistic in what needs to be done. Set reminders and make yourself accountable. 
  3. Be a perfectionist: In your own way, make sure whatever you do, you do it to the best of your ability. That way, each time you complete a goal, you'll know it was worth it!
  4. Be positive: Always, always, always be kind to yourself! Set positive intentions every day for yourself and what you're working towards. Positive = healthy. People don't cheer at games for nothing. Be your own cheerleader! You can do it =)
  5. Give yourself time: Everything thats worth doing takes effort. Things take time and understand that goals make take longer than expected but don't give up on what you really want.

You are the force behind each and every goal you set, whether small or big. Be aware of your choices everyday. Don't hold back your dreams and desires to get what you want!!! 

Everything is up to you! And I know you can do it too =)
