Take a small action.
Ask yourself, which small action can you take today that will move you forward? Downloading a fitness app, clearing your cupboards, writing a ‘to do’ list will help you start moving in the right direction. Reverse the spiral and generate action that creates a positive movement in the right direction.
Create the space. Making a change is difficult if you have not allowed time and space for change. Block out time in your diary each day, even if it’s just 10 or 15 minutes. If you think you don’t have the time, think about how long you spend each day on Facebook, TV, games, or doing smaller tasks that aren’t as important. Substitute one of these activities or incorporate your new ‘habit’ within these time frames. Simple changes I have recommended to clients in this last week, include: sitting on the floor whilst watching TV and ‘working to rule’! The reason for sitting on the floor was to encourage my client to practice the floor stretches we have been working on in the studio to improve their mobility. ‘Working to rule’ encourages them to be more active. If there are 6 shirts to be taken upstairs to be hung up, then make 6 journeys
Surround yourself. The recent success of the European Ryder Cup team owed much to their group on ‘What’sApp’. Even skilled professionals at the top of their game, require the support, encouragement and motivation of fellow professionals, family and friends. This proves the best way support your ‘project’ is to surround yourself with like-minded others who will support your change. Whether you look online or off, create a support team that will check in with you and each other regularly and provide that much needed shoulder to lean on or kick up the ‘XXXX” when required!
Accountability. Having at least one person who will hold you accountable for making this change means you are more likely to succeed. It might be tone of your support team mentioned above, or a coach, partner, friend or colleague. Tell them all about your plans and insist that they never let you off the hook.
