A Message from Your Balanced Habits™ Team

Here we are, the 12th month of 2021. What health & wellness goals did you set for yourself this year that you worked on and perhaps even conquered? If you were to do a mind-set recap of the past 11 months of the year, how would you say you did on a scale of 1 – 10, as far as consistency?  Knowing that consistency is the number one aspect to creating new and balanced habits, give yourself a realistic score.  Now, without any judgement, how can you improve so that you have a higher score? What small changes could you implement to remain consistent with your new desired balanced habit(s)?  

As you close out 2021, take a few minutes to write down goals you wish to master this next New Year. Remember that a new and balanced habit can be the same as a new goal. Be realistic, be outrageous and fearless.  Anything is possible if you can believe and envision yourself mastering it. Pick at least one outside your comfort zone and take baby steps to overcome your normal objections.  Ideally you have at least 12 new goals to focus on for 2022. Focus on only one goal/habit at a time so it can take hold.  Buy yourself a set of gold sticker stars (or find a fun emoji).  Each day of each month, apply a sticker to your calendar each day you’ve mastered the new, balanced habit.  You’ve got this!  

Happy Holidays to you from your friends at Balanced Habits ☺ 

Focus on 5 Mindset Modifications for More Positivity

“Having a positive mindset means making positive thinking a habit.”

  1. What are ONLY the positive “genetic gifts” you were blessed with? List just two.
  2. Practice self-affirmation by looking at your reflection and giving yourself two sincere compliments.
  3. Believe you can be successful mastering a new and balanced habit.
  4. Create a personal mantra that will support your quest for a healthy lifestyle. Use words that evoke strength and success.
  5. Cultivate optimism in an uncomfortable situation.
    IE; if you’re normally shy, literally pretend you’re outgoing and see how it plays out.
