Why wait til January to start on a healthier plan?
The holidays are always a rough time to get started on a nutrition plan. But I had more clients this year not wanting to wait until January to get started on a healthier plan. They wanted to go through the holidays with a better plan so that January would not be as terrible of a change. Besides, I have holiday specials on my website which offer huge savings on nutrition coaching, The Path To Heal sessions and nutrition coaching packages. SO why wait til January when those specials are gone??
When working with clients, I am not an extremist and suggest restrictions to your eating. This just sets you up for failure and disappointment. Holidays are about enjoying the company and the food. But as I suggested to one client who was dreading the family gathering with nothing to eat…..why not offer to bring something? This way you will feel like you contributed, but mainly you will have one thing you know you CAN eat.
Why wait to get yourself to feel better? Why wait if you have health issues? Why wait til you are so disgusted with your weight or how you feel? They will not go away on their own and it is always easier to work with someone who listens to you and helps make the journey easier. Ok, mentally you might not be fully ready. But waiting til January 1st is almost making it worse! I wrote a blog a few years past about embracing change, not creating resolutions.
Embrace how it is you want to feel.
If you want more energy – why wait?
If you want to feel vibrant – why wait?
If you want to learn yoga – why wait?
If you want to be pain free – why wait?
How bad does it have to hurt before you seek help? I know I was in pain with my hip degeneration last year, but I made sure I could do all I could from a nutrition and movement stand-point to keep it as low as possible. Yes, I did wait to have the surgery (darn insurance based on calendar year) but I would have never learned I could eliminate the pain with just food. Just this past week I had a client come in incredulous that the pain had disappeared. Now she can enjoy the holidays without pain!
If you want to work on nutrition, vibrancy and health – hire a nutrition coach who listens to what it is you need, not what they want to sell you.
If you want to be pain free, hire a nutrition coach who specializes in the anti-inflammatory diet and preferably who uses Nutrition Response Testing, too! But also add an acupuncture, exercise and healing subconscious blocks with intuitive healing. (and gosh, I do all of these!)
If you have emotional issues with food, work with a therapist or intuitive healing coach (I do this with The Path To Heal energy work).
If you want to learn yoga, go to beginner yoga classes and find the instructor you like.
If you want to play tennis, join a league or sign up for lessons.
Whatever your goal, find the right people to partner with to make it easier.
So why wait? Get started before everyone else does. Do whatever it is you need to do for you on your own time line. Work on your nutrition, eat more vegetables, eat less processed foods, learn to cook, take yoga classes, take tennis lessons, go to a drawing or painting class. Whatever it is….why wait?
Why wait for an imaginary date that probably won’t work anyway. Just decide Today is the day I start. Why wait?
