10 Lessons on Health From a Decade of Learning

Today I wanted to share with you a post I did on social media on 10 Things I Wish I Knew About Health 10 Years Ago. This is my passion and life's calling and because of this, I wanted to share a few important lessons I've learned in hopes that I might help you too. ❤️ The post is here if you want to check it out but I've included them here as well.

10 things about health I wish I knew 10 years ago:

  1. Surrounding yourself with like minded people sure as heck makes getting fit easier. Whether that’s joining a gym, getting yourself a coach, or forming an accountability group-the people you surround yourself with MATTER.

  2. If you want to change you have to get UNCOMFORTABLE. Read that again. Write it on your bathroom mirror. Repeat that in your head when you don’t feel like doing what you know you need to do.

  3. Everyone always thinks it’s easier for someone else. Stop comparing. You don’t know their story and chances are if it truly is “easier” for them, it’s harder somewhere else. Everyone deals with challenge. Eyes on your own paper.

  4. Contrary to popular belief, motivation is the result of ACTION, not the cause of it. You have to work. Yes, even when you don’t feel like it.

  5. If your body feels off or hurts it’s worth the investment in both time and money to figure out the CAUSE and address it-not put a Band-aid over it. Let’s not treat our bodies like we can trade them in when they wear out.

  6. Your health is YOUR responsibility. Become an advocate for yourself and if you don’t think you are capable of that, hire a coach to help educate you and direct you-not just tell you what to do but WHY. Know that ultimately, you are in charge of you.

  7. Perfection is never the goal. The all or nothing mindset it toxic. Something is always better than nothing.

  8. The scale isn’t being stubborn, your habits are.

  9. It’s often the boring stuff day in and day out that works.

  10. Sleep matters a whole hell of a lot more than any of us want to admit. The “sleep when you’re dead” mantra is probably one of the most toxic pieces of advice we’ll ever hear.

I'm excited about the growth and learning opportunities that the next 10 years will bring, and I can't wait to share what I discover along the way!
