Are YOU Your Own Worst Roadblock To Meeting Your Best Self?
Have you ever had one of those days you go to bed motivated to wake up early…
Maybe even hit the gym before work and eat a smoothie instead of your favorite bagel…
But then when the alarm goes off, it’s a whole different story.
Somehow, your motivation has melted away. Your workout doesn’t happen, and you eat too many heavy carbs for breakfast again.
This is just one of the countless examples of how your mindset affects everything in your life. When it’s just a missed workout here and there, it doesn’t seem like a very big deal. But when you need to make a larger life change, your mindset can have catastrophic impacts on your results if you’re not careful.
If you’re currently in a position where you know you need to make a health change, it is unrealistic to expect that you can simply wake up one morning and execute without blinking an eye. You need to prepare your body and mind to set yourself up for the best possible outcome.
Step 1: Aligning body and mind
The key to achieving any goal is identifying your WHY.
Your WHY is what will keep you on track, even when it’s the last thing you want to be doing.
It’s the push you need when you’re feeling tired, unmotivated, or discouraged.
If you don’t have your WHY driving every step of your healing journey, you will never be successful. Period.
Your WHY will be unique to you, so really take the time to put some serious thought into it:
Maybe your why is:
- Healing your body so you have the strength to support your family as you get older.
- Building strength to go on the trip of a lifetime you’re currently not ready for.
- Eliminating your need for constant medications to improve your financial situation.
No matter what it is, ask yourself the question: “is this WHY strong enough to fully motivate me to achieve my goals.”
If the answer is “no” or “only some of the time,” then you need to refine or change your current why. When you are committing to making ANY physical change (such as weight loss, type II diabetes reversal, or thyroid healing) you will experience many challenging moments that will truly test your commitment.
If your main motivator isn’t rock solid, your results won’t be either.
Step 2: Identify your HOW.
Even with your ultimate WHY, if you don’t follow a strategic HOW, you will have quite a hard time seeing results.
Your body can be a healing machine, so long as you give it the resources it needs to regain strength. Guesswork should have no place anywhere near your healing journey.
Your first step in identifying your HOW should include finding a professional to partner with. It is impossible to expect yourself to find success following the advice you find online, or following the latest fad diet.
A functional medical practitioner will work with you to understand the root cause of your dysfunction. By understanding exactly what is going on inside your body, your medical professional will be able to create the perfect healing plan for YOU.
This could look like:
- Nutrition plans that are oriented around your specific goals.
- Supplement protocols to address specific vitamins and mineral deficiencies.
- Acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, or other supplemental treatments to promote healing.
Your medical practitioner will be your healing advocate, as well as the partner you need to hold you accountable.
Step 3: Get the data
Our bodies are vessels containing thousands of chemical processes per day, and no two people are ever exactly the same.
A functional medical practitioner can run a wide variety of tests to get the full picture of what is going on beneath the surface. The results of these test can:
- Diagnose specific medical conditions.
- Identify deficiencies and determine supplement dosages.
- Shed light on the perfect protein, fat, and carb ratios for your body.
And so much more!
Not only do they get you started on the strongest foot possible, they also hold your progress accountable. By performing repeat testing, you can identify your progress and make adjustments to keep your progress moving forward.
Time to start healing!
You deserve to live a life of health and vitality.
You deserve to enjoy all that life has to offer.
But the reality is, your body dictates what your future looks like.
The good news? Your body is ready to start healing when you are.
So when you:
- Identify your WHY.
- Prepare with a HOW.
- And understand your DATA
