Community Matters

231: Community Matters

Several years ago I created a FREE five day program called #five2thrive that women are still downloading and reaping value from today. That video series introduces the 5 key elements that I think are paramount to improving health: sleep, hydration, nutrition, movement, and mindset.

But there is one other element, I wish I had added to that list. Community.

Ladies, we are communal creatures. We aren’t meant to do hard things alone.

So, this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast is to remind you about the incredible power of community and connection along the path to change.

Goals can be awesome mile markers along the path to change, but goals are not enough to create and sustain change. If you want to create change in your life that is long-lasting, you have to be willing to change your beliefs about what is possible for your life, your habits and ultimately, your identity.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I challenge listeners on how they think of goal setting and how to use goals in a way that helps foster meaningful and sustainable results, not just temporary ones.

132: STOP WAITING: Simple Actions You Can Start Taking TODAY

Stop waiting for the perfect time,
Stop waiting for permission,
Stop waiting until you “feel” like doing the work…to restore your health.

Commit to 1 small action today and again tomorrow. Massive change IS possible when we commit to small actions repeated consistently over time.

Last week on the podcast (Episode 131) I talked about why the danger of taking on too much change too fast, which I refer to as the “Hail Mary Approach”. This is the approach the diet industry sells you and yet…it doesn’t work for long-term sustainability.

In today’s episode, I give you 10 simple measures you can start applying to your life immediately to improve your health.

And the best part is…
You don’t have to buy anything.
You don’t have to follow a formula.
You don’t have to carve our hours of time in your schedule.

You just need to stop waiting and start doing.

Listen to this episode to discover the 10 simple and seemingly insignificant things you could be doing TODAY that can significantly impact your overall health over time.

Discomfort along the path to improving your life isn’t a probability, it is an inevitability.
