How to Get a Healthy Mindset and Reach Your Goals Quicker

When we first make the decision to get healthy and to make positive changes to our lifestyle, it can feel really overwhelming. It can seem like there are so many things that can improve your health and wellness but it’s difficult to know where to start. The good news is that there is a small- yet powerful- way that you can get started- and that’s with your mindset!

It doesn’t matter what habits and actions you try to change and put into practice, it is only with the right mindset that a long-lasting difference will happen- and the changes will be a lot easier to make too. Mindset is sometimes called “the story we tell ourselves.” It’s our attitude toward things in our life and is something that we have all the control over.

However, this fear of missing out can lead us to eat more food, even though we’re already full, stuffing ourselves silly, and basically ignoring all the cues from our body to only eat when we are hungry and to stop once we’ve had enough.

Why you don’t need another diet (and what you do need instead!)

The moment you start a new diet, then of course everything in your mind centers around food. How many calories or fat grams are you about to eat, and how will this affect your carb-protein-fat ratios? That is all such hard work! What you need is a mental chatter diet instead.  And rather than trim back on the food you eat, and going around feeling deprived and hungry, you could instead feel fulfilled, full and satisfied.

What I have come to learn is that the key to permanently changing your relationship with food all comes down to a paradigm shift in the way you live your life and think about your life. Read on for these mindset shifts.

What if there was more to losing weight, overcoming emotional eating and beating your cravings than worrying about food, calories, fat grams, macros and micro nutrients? Would that seem too good to be true?

The thing I have come to learn over the years of working with clients and in my own personal experience, is that our diet- the food we eat- plays only a very small part in losing weight and living a healthy life. It's our Soul Foods that we need to nourish rather than filling our bodies with junk food to fill the voids.
