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.Listen Now!
072: Motivation: An Inside Job
So often we embark on a change process because we get a hit of motivation so strong we feel compelled to take action… for a while.
A few days, weeks or months pass, and, well…you know the drill… the spark that ignited our action starts to flicker out and resistance starts to rear her ugly head.
We start descending the slippery slope of compromise and negotiation because we often fail to feed the motivational fire.
As a coach, I can give my clients tools to uncover the driving force behind their desire to change. I can educate them. I can support them. I can even toss them crumbs of inspiration. What I can’t do, I have learned after many years, is motivate them, because motivation is their work not mine. Motivation is an inside job.
In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I go a bit deeper into why I believe motivation is an inside job and deliver a few strategies that may help you to fuel your own motivational fire.Listen Now!
056: The Secret to Motivation: Act As If
There are two things that are absolutely essential to any transformation process (yeah, I know… I talk about them a lot because I believe in them THAT MUCH):
2. Consistent Action
Last week, Mary O’Malley and I had a great conversation on the podcast about what it takes to stay awake in your life, so you can change habits that are not serving you into ones that do.
This week’s podcast is all about the second point: consistent action. There is a lot of talk these days about changing our thoughts to change our actions, but what if taking action more consistently is what actually lead to more positive thoughts and beliefs around what is possible?
Check out this episode to hear my experience with taking action around what I wanted to change in my own life despite how I felt or what I believed about those actions.Listen Now!
025: Overcome the Challenges of Summer and Thrive
Summer is in full swing and with it comes loads of reasons you could loose footing with the progress you have made with your health goals, or rationalizations about why you won’t start taking responsibility for your health until the fall. In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, Courtney talks about how to not just survive the summer months, but how to thrive through them despite the obstacles that will surely arrive.Listen Now!
