We’ve spent the past month becoming aware of how we’re feeling, what we’re doing, and what is going through our brains. Some of that stuff you want to keep, but there may be some that you want to change. So, the next question is, what does the change look like for you? What DO you want? We know what we DON’T want, but do you know what it is that you do want?
All right, welcome to week five.
In this week, we are entering in a new phase of the program. So, last month we were all talking about awareness. Now this month, we’re going to start focusing on the vision of what success looks like, okay?
And so, what I want you to start doing is asking yourself the question of, what does life look like on the other side of success? What are some of the areas that I’m a little worried about? How can I start to think about managing those areas? And then, thinking about what is it that I want? And as you think about what is it that I want, if you’re coming up with a blank, you’re not alone.
In fact, many women have a problem figuring out what it is that they want? Because for so long, we’ve put our own needs on the back burner. And now that we have the opportunity or now that we’re asking ourselves the question of, what is it that I do want, many of us don’t even know.
So, it may take some time to explore figuring that out for yourself. And so, what I’m going to recommend is if you have not watched it already, Michelle Runnels is a coach for women, and she helps women figure out what they want. She created a bonus episode for us and I’m going to link to that down below.
And then, also I want you to be aware that I did a podcast episode with her, she is delightful. And so, I would definitely recommend that you listen to that if you haven’t already.
In addition to setting goals and vision, starting to do that process, we have a whole month to figure it out. It’s not going to be done in just one week, what else we’re focusing on this week is physical activity. So, we’re going to start adding physical activity into your day, you get to decide how much physical activity you want to start out with. And we want to start out really super simple. And what I want you to do is I want you to shoot low, and here’s why we’re doing this.
I want you to be able to start building self-trust and why this is important is because if you tell yourself that you’re going to exercise for 30 minutes a day, seven days a week. And you haven’t exercised for the past three years. The chances of you doing that, even though it’s only 30 minutes and you should be able to do it because you used to do it four years ago.
If you tell yourself that you’re going to do it and you don’t, you degrade yourself trust. So, what we want to do is we want to make sure that you start building that muscle of creating goals and objectives that are good for you, that are achievable, that allow you to stretch just a little bit, but are still manageable.
And then, what you’re going to do is if you get it done that week, fantastic. The next week you can add more if you want to, but it’s really super important that you don’t over-commit yourself. So, look at your calendar and figure out what is doable for me. And then do that, right? So, that’s all I have for you this week.
Go check out the videos, the habit video for physical activity, and then the habit video for goals and vision, and then all of the additional resources. And I will see you in the group. Let me know if you have questions.
