How Your Mindset is Connected to Healthy Habits
When it comes to creating healthy habits, it’s more about eating nutritious foods and getting more exercise. Your mindset also has a big impact on how you feel and what you are able to do each day. Here are some quick tips to get your mind in the best shape to help you in your health journey.
Develop your awareness.
When you are more aware of your own thoughts (without judgement), you can start understanding how they affect your behavior and emotions. Then you can start moving your thoughts toward changing your actions to support your goals.
Tip: try a Breathe meditation in the Kurbo app
Switch your perspective.
We all can get stuck on the things that are going wrong. Try focusing on the things that are going well and consider your setbacks as learning experiences.
Tip: Write down three things you are grateful for.
Parent tip: Play the gratitude game with your kids!
Remember your why.
Your why is the reason you are working on your healthy habits. Keeping your why in mind can help remind you what really matters to get you back on your path to reach your goals.
Tip: search Instagram, Pinterest, etc for inspiration
Be kind to yourself. Nobody is perfect! How would you encourage a friend? Use those same words of encouragement to reset your mindset on the positive.
Tip: When you hit a bump in the road, stop and think about what you’d say to a friend in the same situation.
