I hope your weekend was fun, relaxing or maybe a little bit of both!
We kicked off another Clean Eating Group over the past weekend and we all sat down and wrote out our WHY’s. The first day is ALWAYS my favorite day because this is such an important step to lasting change!
Why do you want to live a healthy life?
Finding your “WHY” is important to not only your health, but for everything that you do in your life!
It motivates you and gives you purpose
Knowing why you do what you do is so crucial! Otherwise you be wandering around each day with no real sense of purpose. You may do things for a few days but then the motivation would fizzle away just as fast as it came.
It helps you practice self-discipline
Can you remember a time when you KNEW exactly what you were supposed to do? Imagine being able to do that all the time! When your “why” is kept at the forefront of all that you do, making decisions becomes a lot easier. It helps you to remember your values so that when it comes time to make decisions, you are doing what’s best for you.
It keeps you going you when times get tough
Those tough days can REALLY get the best of us at times. And it can be easy to lose sight of why we work so hard to try to make our dreams happen. But when your why is strong it allows you take leaps (and sometimes baby steps) toward our goal. If you’re having a bad day or feel like you’ve lost your sense of purpose in doing what you do, keep reminding yourself of why you got started in the first place.
Asking yourself “What is my WHY?” might actually reveal that you don’t have a why. And that’s okay! It just means that you have an opportunity to dive deep inside of you, evaluate your goals and create that plan of action. Ask for help! Look around you for motivation! But always remember that your WHY has to come within!
