2019 New Years Resolution

A New Way to Make a New Year’s Resolution

New Year’s resolutions: exciting in January and forgotten about by March. Attempting to make radical changes all at once, full steam ahead, often leads to the demise of the resolution before it even gets a chance to start.

What if instead, your New Year’s resolutions could be a yearlong process?

 

Long lasting change is accomplished by a series of small, consistent action steps completed over time.  Changing the resolution speed to slow and steady will make your resolution manageable, fun, and successful. This gives you space to enjoy the process towards the resolution as much as accomplishing the actual resolution itself.

My 6 favorite tips to keep motivated on your resolution journey:

Practice Gratitude & Abundance

Allow your New Year’s resolution to come from a place of gratitude and abundance.  An inspired, motivated tone will start your journey off on the right foot! Set aside time with yourself in a quiet place with no distraction and make a list of all the ways achieving this goal will make you feel amazing and add value to your life.

Take Action in Pieces

Set yourself up for success by breaking down your goal into smaller pieces.  Working on smaller pieces allows you more flexibility in making the process work for you. Your resolution is not meant to be fully completed in January. You can add on once you have taken consistent action and accomplished a small part of your goal, and scale back when needed.

 

Have a Plan

Have a written outline of how you decide to break up your goal into small pieces. Setting monthly goals for yourself is a tangible way to keep you on track. Blocking out time in your calendar to complete the action steps for the month will assist in making this a routine part of your schedule. If you’re building a new routine or habit, try using tools like a daily wall calendar where you can track daily achievements and progress.

 

Have a Back-Up Plan

A great way to be consistent in your goal is to have a back-up plan if needed. If your resolution is to attend a weekly yoga class at a studio, then have a yoga video picked out that can be completed at home. Life will bring up a day when you have to work late or study for a test. Being prepared with an alternative plan can help you stay on track.

 

Hold yourself accountable

Schedule an accountability date with yourself or your coach to review your New Year’s resolution and check in on how the current plan is working. Don’t be afraid to make changes to your plan so that the process feels motivating. Be in gratitude to yourself during your check-in for all the amazing work you have done towards your resolution.

 

Be Kind to Yourself

encourage.png

If you get off track with your New Year’s resolution, remember  you’re human!  Accept this as a neutral fact and keep your energy focused on restarting a small action step to get back on track. Negative self-talk about why you got off track is a distracting, self-sabotaging behavior that will only move you further away from your goal.  

 

Life is not about always staying on track: it’s about having the courage to take imperfect action and keep getting back on track when you get off.

Here is how much money you can make working with a life coach

Hiring an Experienced Life Coach will earn You More Money.

Time is money! But It’s not always about money. Your time is your most valuable resource. You have spent time thinking about how you want to spend and invest your money, but have you spent the same attention on how you are spending and investing your time?

 

Imagine your daily energy levels are a bank account.

money.png

Each day you have a daily allowance. Every thought and action will cost you, just like every cup of coffee or clothing purchase costs you.

Let’s say you have a $50 a day allowance,

Of course, you would spend a couple of time and energy bucks completing daily tasks such as getting dressed, eating food, and communing but where are the rest of your time and energy bucks going?

Are you spending “time bucks” on the same draining work conversations with your co-workers? because those will cost you a buck here and a buck there each conversation!

Do you then sit at your desk dreading the boring work tasks you have sitting in front of you, which brings up the question why are you still at this job anyways and why haven’t you updated your resume yet? There go a couple of more bucks drawn out of that account!

Then you start texting your friend asking for advise on how to respond to a text you received from this guy you have been dating, even though this relationship has been draining you for months and you can’t remember the last time things were good: subtract a couple of more bucks.

 

Ready to invest in you?

By lunch time you could be pulling out your time credit card (unfortunately this credit card doesn’t come with flight points or cash back rewards) as your bank account has been long overdrawn because you have been living this way for awhile now. Only with the help of a financial planner could you ever get your bank account off life support.

A Life Coach Helps Prevent an Energetic Overdraft!

pablo-1.png

Just like a financial planner helps you get clear and organized with your finances and assists you with tools to maximize your investments and savings, a life coach helps you gain clarity and organization on your current goals while setting you up for success in your future investments.

Once the “spending” is stabilized, you can start earning back some of that energy, piece by strategic piece!

Working with a life coach will save you time, energy, and money by helping you identify energy draining habits and habits of distraction (which can often be expensive) and help you get clear on what you need right now to feel alive and in control of your life, instead of your life controlling you.

 

An experienced life coach will help you out of emotional debt

You’ll even explore new ways to increase your time and energy profits!

 

Coaching is a dynamic and powerful way to help you navigate and establish momentum on your goals.

Working with a coach will help you:

  • clearly identify your goals

  • explore strategic opportunities to optimize your time & energy

  • break free from self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors that have limited your progress

  • address barriers and discover new possibilities so that you can bridge the space between thinking and doing!

How can a coach immediately help you?

Provides Structure & Guidance

The process along the way of reaching your goal is just as important, if not more important than the goal itself. A coach will help you develop the tools for self-sufficiency that will make decision making a less daunting process.

Having someone to help you break down your goal in to manageable action steps can make the process of achieving your goal doable and fun, instead of overwhelming and frustrating.

Gain Comforting Clarity

A coach will help you build a stronger relationship to yourself, which will make getting clear on your professional and personal boundaries and day-to-day needs easier.

No need to read your horoscope every time you need to make a decision, you will have the tools to use your own intuition and thoughtfully crafted blue print to make informed and healthy choices for your life.

 

Provides Expert Support

It’s easy to spend lots of time asking other people what they think you should do, as time quickly passes with no action being taken to change the situation. We so often let our fear stand in the way of taking a smart leap forward, and focusing on this one wild life we’ve been gifted.

A life coach will actually stand with you in your fear and self-doubt and help you see that these are completely normal feelings when you are embarking on a new path.

Skillful life-coaches help open up new possibilities so that the change you want becomes tangible and very possible.

Your coach will help you both with the personal self-management and the concrete structure needed to make change.

With endless support, you will watch your fears and self-doubt melt away as you build a plan of action to move forward on your goal.

“When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.” A coach will be by your side supporting you and providing feedback as you get going. You’ll craft balance and harmony even during difficult situations and a life coach will help you balance moving forward, while keeping your self-care intact.

 

You’ll Gain A Fresh Perspective

pablo.png

Because sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees

Our minds can be tricky and stubborn- working hard to maintain the status-quo even when we consciously want to shift. The mind will justifying why we should continue with our same unproductive patterns of thoughts and behaviors instead of making the new healthy lifestyle change we need.

The human brain will create many reasons why you should wait to be happy or healthy. Expert Life Coaching will help you identify these barriers and self-sabotaging behaviors and will support you as you step outside your comfort zone.

Your coach will help you create, implement, and sustain new actions: moving your life forward.

 

Progress & Accountability

By hiring a life coach, you have powerfully declared to yourself that you are ready to invest in your life and your goals.

A coach will help you keep that momentum throughout the process by helping you continue to stay accountable to you.

Life will continue to happen as you work on reaching your goals and there will ALWAYS be a good reason that will justify you pausing on your vision.

A good coach can help you navigate life’s tangles (pedestrian or otherwise) while still guiding you on, not losing track of the larger purpose.

Life is not about always staying on track, but having the courage to take imperfect action and continuously getting back on track when you fall off.
— Adriana Gambino
 

Reach Your Goals, Faster

pablo-4.png

Coaching provides a road map to get you to your goal faster. A coach will guide you in creating a strategic plan that outlines manageable action steps, which will save you tons of time and frustration on the way to your goal.

Coaching will also help you uncover old limiting beliefs and replace them with new empowering views making the journey more peaceful and successful.

 

Making the time to invest in you is priceless.

food shopping .png

Think of the last time you come home from your day hungry, tired and unmotivated to cook only to open the fridge and find no prepared food. Next thing you know you’re eating processed food from a box, getting take out or especially when starting out on your plant-based journey reverting back to animal based foods.

3 Easy Meal Planning Tips

Plan ahead

Meal planning-healthy recipes- vegan- plant based

Having a plan is the best way to ensure that you will have enough healthy meals and snacks for the week and won’t have to resort to take out or eating processed foods.

Start with picking one day a week to complete your food shopping and cooking. 

Be prepare for food shopping by mapping out your breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinners for that week. This will make food shopping faster and cheaper.  Roaming around the grocery store without a plan can lead to a full cart of individual items but no actual meals. It can also lead to purchasing extra items that are not needed such as unhealthy snacks or duplicates of what you already have at home.

 

Keep a stocked pantry

Keeping your freezer full of frozen veggies and frozen fruit and your cabinet full of a combination of canned and dried beans and bags of grains is an easy way to stay on track if your schedule doesn’t allow for you to go food shopping on your regularly scheduled day.  Frozen veggies and fruit are great, just read the ingredients list to ensure that there are no added ingredients, it should just be the veggie or fruit in the bag. A grain, a bean and some veggie will allow you to quickly whip up a healthy grain bowl option.

To ensure all you’re meals are flavorful even when unplanned, play around with adding different spices. I also always keep some flavored balsamic vinegar on hand-my favorite is Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar to add some flavor.

 

Cook in double batches when possible

jackelin-slack-507992-unsplash.jpg

Not all meals may be best for double batch cooking but soups, stews, lasagnas, veggie burgers and vegan pot pie are just a couple of examples of the types of meals that can be cooked in double batches half for your current week's meal and half to freeze for another time.

When freezing meals, mark the date that you place the meal in the freezer and use the meal within two months of freezing.

4 Ways to De-Stress Your Day

While increasing productivity & happiness

busy office work 2.png
 

1. Create a List

to do list.png
  • Start your day by making a list of tasks that need to be accomplished that day. This will alleviate stress by removing the possibility of forgetting something.

  • Prioritize your tasks.

  •  Start with the highest priority task instead of the fastest task to complete.

 

2. Monotasking

  • Complete one task at a time.

  • Multitasking will increase stress levels and hinder productivity.

  • From the list you created, choose your first task and set your phone timer for 45 minutes (turn your phone upside or place your phone in your desk drawer) and fully commit to staying present for that period of time on only the task at hand.

  • Turn off alerts and notifications on your computer and phone, as they can create temptation to jump to an unrelated task.

  • Only keep open the computer screens related to the task you are working on.

 

Want to Stress Less?

3. Take a Break

 
  • Take breaks away from your work space.

  • Change of scenery will reduce stress by giving your mind a rest and increase your productivity and focus when you return back to work.  

  • Preferably get outside for your break even if only for a few minutes.

  • If you can’t get outside take a few minutes to stand by a window and get some natural light.

  • While on your break: 

    • Put your phone and any other electronics away.

    • Take a few moments to think about something that brings you joy.

    • Catch yourself if you start thinking about your to do list or the task you were working on prior to your break and redirect yourself back to keeping this a time for you to relax.

 

4. Give Yourself Credit

The 4 Most Common Reasons to Adopt a Plant Based Lifestyle

Why a Plant Based Lifestyle?

We spend much of our day eating food yet most people have not taken much time to evaluate why they have chosen their nutrition lifestyle. This can leave us eating a hodgepodge of foods we eat because they are the foods we grew up eating, foods that are fast and easy to make, or somewhere we heard it was healthy for us to be eating it without checking the evidence based research behind the claim.  We are constantly inundated with conflicting and constantly changing information regarding what's healthy and which newest fad diet to follow. It can be very confusing!

What’s not confusing is that the standard America diet high in animal products, fats, and processed foods has caused numerous health problems as shown by an enormous amount of evidence based research. A staggering number of people are diagnosed with one or more chronic disease (such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, obesity etc.) and take one or more medications to treat their chronic condition. In addition, chronic fatigue, lack of energy, depression, gastrointestinal conditions and autoimmune disorders are on the rise.

Your food choices matters!

why.png

 

It’s very important to carefully choose a nutrition lifestyle that promotes and increases you health -physically, emotionally and mentally!   

A plant- based lifestyle is a simple way to  accomplish all that!

 

 

Ready to take the first step?

What you eat:

An abundance of delicious foods! 

  • Fruits- apples, berries, bananas, kiwis...

  • Veggies- lettuce, Kale, broccoli, peppers...

  • Tubers- sweet potatoes, potatoes, carrots, beets...

  • Whole Grains- brown rice, quinoa, farro, whole wheat, oats...

  • Legumes- black beans, lentils, kidney beans, chick peas...

And these are just a few examples!!

What it Excludes:

  • Meat- including chicken and fish

  • Dairy products

  • Eggs

  • Highly refined foods- bleached flours, refined sugars, oils

The 4 most common reasons to adopt a Plant Based Lifestyle

1. Health

A plant-based lifestyle has been clinically proven to prevent and reverse chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, some forms of cancer, obesity and autoimmune disorders.  Emotional benefits include increased energy, improved mood and increased self- empowerment of taking back control of your health and well-being. Plant-based nutrition also makes maintaining a healthy weight easy-no more counting calories, measuring portion sizes, or feeling deprived. You will be able to maintain your healthy weight while eating an abundance of delicious foods. If your an athlete, plant-based nutrition has been proven to speed up your bodies recovery time between workouts.   

 

2. Mindfulness

Where does our food come from and what’s in it? We can easily fall into this "out of sight, out of mind" mentality about the journey of our food prior to it landing at the grocery store. However, part of being mindful and present in our lives means being aware of all of our habits and our food choices are a daily habit we don't want to ignore. Food choices are crucial to personal health and the health of all beings: animals and the environment.  Part of mindfulness is understanding that our individual choices have a rippling effect on all beings.

mindfullness.png

Environmental Factors

Adopting a plant-based diet is the best thing you can do to help sustain our environment. Raising animals for food requires large amounts of land, food, water, and energy. This has caused and continues to cause a devastating impact on our environment through climate change, pollution from greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation to grow food for animals and house animals prior to slaughter. Raising animals for food requires large amounts of water to keep animals hydrated, water to hydrate the food to feed the animals and water to use for the daily operations of the factory farms. Along with land, oceans are also being damaged by commercial fishing methods that upset the natural process of the oceans and bycatch killing of ocean animals not intended to be caught.  Adopting a plant-based lifestyle can drastically reduce your carbon foot print.

Animal Welfare

A plant-based nutrition lifestyle is kind and respectful to all living beings. We go to the grocery store and buy our food without questioning where or how our food was gown. We look at the milk carton or chicken package that we place in our shopping carts as a food product instead of the living and breathing being with a personality and feelings that it actually is. By the time we see our food it is neatly packaged for us with a picture of a happy farm animal on it and a nice friendly word like "organic" or "free range."  However, that is not the reality. There is a great deal of suffering and abuse endured by each animal prior to the animals death. Terms like cage free or free range have become common and may sound nice for marketing purposes but unfortunately paying more for these products doesn’t change the end result of death for the animal or the inhumane treatment throughout their lives.

Get Clear on Your WHY

As with any healthy lifestyle change, getting clear on your why can help you stay focused and on track when implementing your new daily habits.

4 Ways to Improve Your Sleep

You deserve a solid nights sleep.

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Often the last thing we do prior to falling asleep involves texting, emailing, surfing the web on our phones, watching TV, a combination of these activities all at the same time or just passing out for being exhausted from the day.

Having a transition period from your over stimulating day activities is one of the best ways to improve sleep and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning. Sleep is your time to replenish your mind and body, both have worked hard for you all day.

 

1. Put all electronics away

Our days are often filled with lots of stimulating activities and many of them revolving around screen time. Continuing with stimulating activities prior to bed can cause disruptions in restful sleep. Putting all electronics away two hours prior to bed will ensures that you are giving yourself well deserved transition time.

 

2. Choose a transition activity, one that you love

journal.pnLife coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

To slow your mind down from work mode to rest mode choose an activity that you are excited about and feels restful.  Transition ideas include: reading something inspiring and interesting to you, meditating or journaling.

 

 

3. Acknowledge yourself for all of your accomplishments from today

Often, we end the day thinking about all the things we didn’t have time to complete or worry about how busy tomorrow is going to be. Taking time to give yourself credit for all your daily accomplishments will create a calmer energy for improved sleep. 

 

4. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Having a consistent sleep routine will help your body naturally slow down at bed time and feel energized in the morning.  Restful sleep will improve both your happiness and health.

 

 

 

Curious about how you can build your healthiest routine?

Building Your Best Morning Routine

Feel better every morning

Mornings can feel like a blur rushing around as the clock moves extra fast. This time of the day can feel so dreaded that many people get their coffee pots ready the night before anticipating the need for a caffeine driven morning. So is it possible to wake up refreshed and ready to start your day without coffee?

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Have a healthy evening routine

The best way to ensure waking up refreshed is getting a restful night's sleep. Having transition time prior to bed will allow your mind to wind down from the day’s activity to rest mode which will improve sleep and set you up for an energized wake-up.

 

Go old school: Use an alarm clock!

Using an alarm clock instead of your cell phone will help you avoid immediately jumping on your phone. It's far too easy when using your cell phone as an alarm clock to shut off your alarm and check email or respond to a text, or jump on the internet. Set the tone for your day with a relaxing way to get out of bed.

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Set an intention for your day

Take five minutes of quiet time where you can start your day by setting the tone for how you want to feel and what you want to accomplish during that day.  This can be a time to do some deep breathing and start your day from a mindset of purposeful intention and calm.

For example: “ Today I am going to try and stay chill during my commute” or “Just for today, I’m going to close all 37,234 windows on my browser and focus on one thing at a time.”

The beauty of intention setting is that it can be a simple idea, and doesn’t require a PhD in Philosophy. Just pick out a “thing” to focus on shifting or improving.

Keep it small, keep it simple.

 

Eat breakfast

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Eat a breakfast that is well balanced and nutritious. My favorite breakfast is oatmeal with blueberries, apples, walnuts, and flaxseed. This will give your body and mind the fuel it needs to help you have a productive and inspiring day.

 

A great start to your day can help you set the tone for a day filled with more calm, inspiration and fun! Coffee free.

What is a Coach & Why Do You Need One

Accelerate reaching your goals by working with a coach

Coaching is a dynamic and powerful way to help you navigate and establish momentum on your goals. Working with a coach can help you clearly identify your goals, explore options, break free from self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors, address barriers and discover new possibilities so that you can bridge the space between thinking about your goals and taking tangible action steps towards achieving your goal.

 

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Accountability

Life is not about always staying on track, but having the courage to take imperfect action and continuously getting back on track when you get off.             A coach will support you in staying  accountable to you! During times when it feels like you’re getting off track, working with a coach is the fastest way to stay on course to create long lasting sustainable change.

Need more hands-on help with this?


Another perspective

The mind can be tricky and resist change by justifying why you should continue with your same patterns of thoughts and behaviors instead of making the new lifestyle change you desire.  You can come up with many reasons why you should wait to be happy and healthy. Coaching will help you identify these barriers and self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors and will support you while you step outside your comfort zone


Support

Change can feel challenging even when it’s something you desire and having encouragement, support and a plan of action can be the difference of staying on track or staying stuck in old routines. Long term sustainable change requires consistent action and having a coach who can help you stay accountable to you will make the journey of reaching your goals a more easeful and successful process, even on the days when taking action seems extra hard.


Reach your goals faster

Review the Menu Ahead of Time

reading menu.png

With most menus being online, looking at the menu ahead of time will be helpful to get an idea if meals offered can be made plant-based. This will also help you ask more specific questions when ordering.

 

Call Ahead

saladwithpotatoes.png

When looking at the menu if it doesn’t seem that any plant-based options are available call the restaurant and ask them if they could make a plant-based dish that is not listed on the menu. I have eaten some of my favorite meals this way!

 

Talk to the Server

I do recommend doing your homework and having a couple of meals in mind prior to ordering but please remember that the server is there to help you have a pleasant dining experience so let them help by nicely explaining to them that you eat a plant-based diet and let them give you some options that are possible.

Happycow.com

This is a great website to search for plant-based friendly restaurants and stores. Being able to search by location is also very helpful if you’re traveling. 

 

Most importantly, keep a mindset of abundance and possibility. If you believe that there are lots of great plant friendly place to dine, the server is going to be helpful and your plant-based meal will be delicious- it will all happen. Stay focused on the things you want and it will become your reality.  Happy dining!
